‘Cancer is not a death sentence, it’s a wake-up call’

Elizabeth Sulit-Dominic, who have just had lumpectomy after two months of being diagnosed with Invasive Ductal Carcinoma Grade 2, didn’t have an inkling she’d have the big C.

“I was shocked. I always thought I was very careful with my life: diet and lifestyle. I don’t drink, I don’t smoke, don’t eat pork, seafoods, don’t drink coffee,” said Dominic.

Invasive ductal breast cancer means the cancer cells are no longer only in the breast ducts. They have spread outside the ducts to the surrounding breast tissue and have the potential to spread to lymph nodes and other parts of the body.

Dominic said she and her husband did some research on how to tackle the problem.

“It was draining in a sense that I really did make a lot of research together with my husband where you would see differing views on how to go about it: conventional or natural/alternative. We did the natural approach for 2 months but somehow the tumor was growing.

“The second month you can say was the darkest moment because it seemed that the natural was not doing its work. I prayed to God to guide me which route to take. He answered my prayer thus we decided to remove only the obvious lump and refuse to do the chemo, radiotherapy and hormone therapy,” Dominic said.

Her advice: “We first need to heal from our spiritual and psychological wounds and diseases, get rid of emotional baggage, anger, stress and bitterness. Really commit to change your diet and lifestyle 180 degrees.”
