As a doctor, I am always keen to learn from patients who have managed to heal by taking control of their health. I recently became aware of Fred Evrard, who was diagnosed in 2020 with stage 3 colon cancer, and in just four months, he was cancer-free. I have seen his medical records and was interested in speaking to him about his journey.
As doctors, we need to be more open-minded and learn from patients who take alternative paths to get better. TO BE CLEAR, I AM NOT RECOMMENDING ANYONE NECESSARILY SHOULD IMPLEMENT WHAT FRED DID IN THEIR OWN LIFE. I know that being diagnosed with cancer can be extremely scary and fear-inducing. I would always recommend discussing therapeutic options with a qualified healthcare professional.
As you will hear in this conversation, Fred engaged in a variety of different measures that he believes helped him to heal, including:
- ketogenic diet
- positive mindset
- as well as 3 sessions of chemotherapy rather than the 24 sessions that his doctors recommended.
This powerful conversation can give hope and insight to anyone suffering from a chronic disease. I hope you enjoy listening, and if you know anyone you feel may benefit from hearing this conversation, please share this video with them.
