In December 2015, I had a biopsy which showed that I had an aggressive form of Spindle Cell Melanoma cancer on my chest and would need an operation, followed by reconstruction, plastic surgery and probably chemo. Operation date was for early February.
I was recommended to Healthy Healing by a friend, and thought it would be worth a consultation. I was not a believer of Holistic practices, but thought I needed to try all avenues. I was impressed that one of the main protocols was to get my body in ‘tip top’ condition for the operation, but also, with a month of treatment before the operation there was a possibility of a reversal.
I undertook a full detox, had regular ozone therapy, took a lot of prescribed vitamins/potions and changed my diet to Vegan straight away. It was a bit of a shock to my system, but so was the word cancer! My prognosis was not good.
I had the operation – over 100 stiches. I recovered very quickly and felt well. Tests showed that the cancer had not spread, which was amazing, as this was a fast growing one, but even more amazing was the fact that they could find no trace of cancer in any of the removed tissue. I have since had regular checkups and to date, I am still clear.
I am convinced that all the treatments I had at Healthy Healing really gave me an excellent chance to fight my cancer, and for that, I am extremely grateful.
Rogers checkup in December 2017 proved him to still be cancer free.
I have arrived home yesterday after spending 6 weeks at Healthy Healing in Paphos Cyprus. The main reasons that I picked Healthy Healing for my treatment was the Holistic Approach that they offered and also the fact that accommodation meals and transport was offered as part of the package.
I knew that having to work out what I was going to eat each day and having to source the complex dietary requirements (dairy, grain, sugar, gluten free and vegan) was going to be extremely difficult and exhausting. I also didn’t want to feel isolated while having treatment.
From day one I was happy with my choice – to be welcomed with open arms and a beautiful and nourishing broccoli soup for lunch after 33 hours of travel was so welcome and amazing! Diane the “house Mum” cooks amazing Healthy and nutritious meals and she caters for different requirements. As they understand that correct nutrition plays an important part of Healing – the food at the villa is dairy, gluten, refined sugar and highly processed free.
I loved the concept of being in share accommodation with other patients undergoing treatment (4 at any one time). We all formed amazing friendships and supported each other throughout our journey. We each had our own en-suite (with bath) double size bedrooms all air-conditioned. things like Epsom salts / magnesium for bath soaks. Ozonated and alkaline water was available as was Turmeric Golden Mylk.
The villa has a beautiful pool area with sun lounges which is a great way to relax after a day of treatments.
The treatments that I received at Healthy Healing were IV ozone and IV vitamin C – I opted to pay for extra IV ozones and Vit c during my stay. This is done by the absolutely amazingly wonderful Dr Mala at her practice in the mornings and then it would be off to Healthy Healing Clinic for treatments that included Live Blood and Darkfield analysis, Anal and vagina ozone insufflations, ozone FIR sauna, Colonics, Mild hyperbaric oxygen chamber, enemas (including coffee and parasite), FIR massage suit, Bioptron light therapy, magnetic therapy, NESS therapy, intranasal laser, and various massages therapies such a lymph drainage and deep tissue.
As each person is different and at different stages the treatments really are tailored to each person. I also underwent a liver and gall bladder cleanse and a parasite cleanse. Caroline who runs the clinic is very knowledgeable and will go over and above to make sure you are getting whatever you need to ensure the best healing outcomes. Some issues were picked up with my health and different options were offered to me that were not in the package to make sure I was able to heal which I thought was so amazing.
So – how am I feeling – the first 4 1/2 weeks I felt pretty yuck!! It was a tough 4 weeks – my veins were no cooperating at all and Dr Mala was amazingly patient and so kind to help me through this. I also had kidney, bladder and adrenal fatigue issues and vitamin B12 issues that were all able to be treated and pretty much resolved during my stay thanks so Dr Mala and Caroline and the extra treatments that were offered to me. So by week 5 my energy levels were high, symptoms were disappearing and I was starting to feel AMAZING!!! Constant headaches (I have had them since childhood) have all but disappeared, I feel fresh and vitalized.
I have arrived home after 32 hours of very little sleep (5 hours) to my husband and kids saying how amazing and fresh I looked and I amazingly felt pretty damn good – they all said my eyes have changed color and I was much happier and relaxed. I saw my chiro a couple of hours after arriving home and his reaction was the same – he couldn’t get over how well I looked and how bright and clear my eyes were – he also commented that it was the easiest adjustment he had had to do on me ever as my muscles weren’t a rock hard mess!!
Aside from this I still have a lot of healing to do – especially my gut – I started a gut protocol in Cyprus that involved high dose probiotics, HCL betain and pepsin and digestive enzymes. My gut is destroyed from years of high dose antibiotics as a child. I have followed a very Holistic healing approach since being diagnosed which did not include any antibiotics or pharmaceuticals – just diet, nutrition and supplements. I really believe that working on my gut which is top priority as it is causing inflammation issues – will benefit me even more. I have purchased a water ozonator for the kitchen, I have ordered a portable fir sauna so I can have ozone saunas each day – I will be doing enemas at home and I am ordering an ozone machine for insufflations etc.
I will continue my clean diet as it has had a huge impact on my health. I believe that Caroline and her team and really made a massive improvement to my health and I believe it was worth every cent to go over to Cyprus. I don’t believe it is a magic bullet and I believe that diet – cleansing liver and gall bladder and cutting down on toxins in your life – eg toxic cleaning products, toxic body products will be a massive help to you. I still have work to do but feel the best I have in years.
UPDATE: Katrina has recently contacted us and told us she is now Lyme free and happy to discuss her treatment with anyone considering Healthy Healing for treatment.
I spent 4 weeks at Healthy Healing in Paphos with Katrina and would go along with everything she has said. I have now come home to Spain and I am feeling better than I have been for several years.
Katrina and I became really good friends and I am sure the holistic atmosphere at Healthy Healing’s accommodation and the tasty meals cooked by Diane the nutritionist helped in many ways to our getting so well.
When I arrived at Paphos , I had great difficulty going upstairs and could not walk my dogs as walking was too painful. I truly could not go more than 10 yards without stopping. Before the end of my 4 weeks, I could go quickly up the stairs and managed to walk around the whole of Paphos Mall without any problems.
Since arriving home my legs are getting stronger every day, I can walk my dog and I no longer have pain in the morning anywhere else. This is all due to the combined treatment of the doctor and excellent knowledge of Caroline being able to work out my individual needs for healing.
The Bioptron light therapy is fabulous. I had daily sessions with it and I feel it was this therapy that really helped my chronic leg pain. It also enormously improved my headaches.
People are also telling me I look like a new person and my eyes have their sparkle back. I learned so much in the time I was there and will continue to use the knowledge to keep myself well. I would sincerely recommend the clinic in Paphos as I do feel the all-round package as Katrina explained, is so good.
For those who may have to travel alone Healthy Healing is the perfect choice.
Update from Sheila
I have recently undergone many tests with my medical doctor and Naturopath, both were amazed at the difference in my test results. My arteries are much clearer and all my vital statistics have improved 100%. Thank you Healthy Healing.
I attended Healthy Healing Clinic in Paphos, Cyprus for 4 weeks mid March to mid April.2017. I went because I was suffering from Borreliosis (Lyme disease) Mould Toxicity and Auto immune disease Lichen Planus- (external and internal) thyroid dysfunction etc….
I was greeted warmly weeks before I arrived by Di the house mother who had contacted me a number of times to understand and prepare for my dietary requirements. Finding out what my doctor’s food regime was any sensitivity I had and any other little idiosyncrasies I had with food. Favorite nourishing foods etc. I follow FODMAP/Paleo/Mold diet
Di was super keen to make sure I had the right food for my condition and that I would be getting nutritiously dense food whilst healing. I felt very welcomed each time we communicated which really helped as I was going on my own. My husband had just left me in this condition and I was quite sick and scared and vulnerable an emotional wreck to be honest. Going to Healthy Healing Paphos was the only option for me as I couldn’t look after myself. I am so very glad I went.
Caroline also warmly welcomed me and was in communication preparing for my arrival. She was so real and approachable she tailored my treatments according to my responses and always listened to my feedback. I felt very heard and understood and safe. In my opinion Caroline did absolutely everything within her power to make my treatment time as full and holistic as possible in her clinic including the sessions organised back at the house.
There was no shortage of technologies and therapies available! She would adapt and change whenever needed. Caroline is quite a humble woman and a wealth of knowledge and experience which she shared the more time we spent together. Having her as my practitioner and to know that she understands my illness the way she does (as experiencing is believing with lyme) made healing easier.
Charlie, Caroline’s husband picked me up from the airport and drove me to my appointments with Dr Mala and back to clinic and home again. He was always cheery, helpful and always informing me of things about the island and the local area. He is a very kind and thoughtful man.
Dr Mala is a German trained doctor and a lovely woman. I had all my IV therapies with her and some neural therapy which is originally a German technique I have back home so it was great to have this available in Cyprus. All sessions for me were very easy I enjoyed these sessions knowing how good they were for me.
The house was large clean and comfortable and everything I could possibly think of was provided.
The meals were made with love, delicious, colorful & creative. Breakfast was usually self-serve and Di the lovely house-mother cooked Lunch & Dinner.
It was too cold for me to swim but I did get a chance to lay in the sun by the pool a few weather friendly times which I really enjoyed.
This is a perfect retreat, especially for anyone travelling alone and I am more than happy to speak to anyone considering having treatment in Cyprus.
