At age 33, Kris was diagnosed with stage IV Nodular Melanoma that had spread into her lymphatic system and stomach. When she refused surgery and chemotherapy, doctors gave her six months to a year to live. That was the day that her life began.
After seeking alternative therapy under the care of Dr. Clement at the Hippocrates Health Institute in West Palm, Florida, she discovered that food can indeed heal the body. Kris’s whopping 26 tumors seemingly “popped” like a pimple through the surface of her skin on her legs and stomach. Kris believes her cancer was cured by a diet of raw foods, meditation, and LOTS OF LOVE. It took her one year for her blood work to come back cancer-free.
The photo below was taken during her treatment as the tumors came up and through the surface of her skin. The medicine was a form of blackroot that has been used for tumor removal for 100’s of years. The treatment wasn’t painless, she suffered side effects similar to chemotherapy such as vomiting blood, night sweats, diarrhea, high fevers…but her body was performing surgery on itself!
Kris wants you to know that we all have the power within us to change our future! In our three part interview series, we will share her incredible story with you right here at DiGG.
Q&A with Kris Cameron
Q. Kris– you have a website called Goddess of Power. Where did that name come from?
A. The Goddess of Power site is about embracing the feminine and empowerment through positive and encouraging words, education on the importance of raw organic super foods, and our basic mind, body, spirit connection. Every day we are faced with challenges or obstacles that we must overcome but it’s not just about winning or losing it’s about embracing the challenge and finding the joy and excitement of the lesson and then applying those lessons to our everyday lives. Cancer has been nothing short of a magical journey and has made life so clear. Each morning I wake up and feel joy in every moment and now realize just how blessed we all are. My hope is to create a forum/site based on Health, Wellness, and Community encompassing Mind, Body, & Spirit. Through our words and stories of encouragement, we can empower each other to keep a positive outlook and embracing our challenges there is nothing that is not possible.
I had a very close friend that died of cancer. If it wasn’t for her I wouldn’t be here today. She originally put me on the homeopathic medicine that pushed the tumors from my body. She was thinking that she was going to help me get rid of my arthritis; little did she know that she was saving my life. Kelly was a Goddess of Power. And that is what it’s about those that surround us and look out for us. I’m sure that we all have a Goddess of Power in our lives and we should be able to share them with the world.
Q. You were given a sentence of one year to live after being diagnosed with stage 4 melanoma. What did that feel like to hear those words? What was the very first thing you did when you left that doctors office?
A. Six months to a year to live; I kept repeating it over and over again in my mind but no matter how many times it replayed the words were almost incomprehensible. I kept thinking ‘Im only 33.’ I felt like I was in a dreamlike state. There is no possible description of the physical and mental sensation that your body under goes when you are trying to digest death.
After leaving the doctor’s office I went home and tried to carry on with my day like nothing had happened. I didn’t even tell anyone other than a few close friends for a solid month. I couldn’t even speak the words. Looking back I think that I was in shock. My mind went in a million different directions… “What am I going to do?’
Most of my close friends and family work with me and all I could think of was what would happen to them if I were to die. Even my little dogs, where or who would take them. Words just can’t begin to describe everything that runs through your mind under such extreme circumstances. I wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemy.
Q. How long did it take to decide that you would not go through with chemo and radiation?
A. It was almost immediate. I have fought rheumatoid arthritis since I was 14 and in my early 20’s was almost paralyzed with it. At the time when I was so sick the doctors had me on methatraxate (which is a light form of chemotherapy), anti-inflammatories, steroids (they were shooting my knees up and I was taking them orally, & an experimental drug. I began to get so sick from all the meds that I stopped one day cold turkey and started acupuncture and Chinese medicine and over time I got so much better! To this day I deal with it naturally. Advil makes me high! lol So when I was told that I had cancer I almost immediately knew that chemo wouldn’t work for me. I only second guessed that thought when I started to share with my friends and family that I was sick. They all pushed me to do chemo, my aunt even cried and begged me to do chemo (FYI – she now is a green smoothie all-natural girl!).
