Speaking with their urologist at the time, they were left with what felt like impossible options. Pee in a bag for the rest of her life or “create a neo bladder out of intestinal material. Oh, but there are drawbacks to that,” he mentioned.
Jeff Witzeman shared his and his wife’s (Kerry) incredible healing journey with cancer treatment. Kerry was 53 years old when they removed a golf ball-sized tumor from her bladder. They were told: “the cancer has spread into the muscle wall and the only course of action is to remove the bladder.”
Feeling dejected, they went home to absorb what they just heard and understand the reality of their situation. They recalled that her sister and nephew both had cancer. One had stage 4 melanoma and the other stage 3 squamous cell throat cancer. Both have been cancer free for the last 3-4 years, without doing chemotherapy or surgery. How? A trip to Germany, and a month-long stay at a clinic that treats cancer naturopathically. Surely, there were options out there.
“It turns out cancer cannot survive in certain environments, if you starve it, it has nothing to feed on and killing it becomes relatively easy.”
They consulted their urologist and inquired if this was a good idea. He flat-out said no and firmly responded with an acute warning that her cancer was far too aggressive to be treated over there. Was this ignorance or naivety? How can someone so confidently crush someone’s hope of natural treatment without fully understanding the specifics of the facility and what it has to offer?
Their Own Research
Hours of time, effort, and energy then went into researching clinics and alternative methods to cancer treatment. Jeff attributes this part to being one of the most difficult. He cites Cancertutor.com and Thetruthaboutcancer.com as invaluable websites that provide great information for those seeking it.
The clinic, Infusio, had quite successfully treated squamous cell bladder cancer in the past. At that point they decided the benefits outweighed the risks, and they were on their way to Frankfurt, Germany. The facility, he describes, is comfortable, clean and cozy. Almost like a spa. Kerry’s plan consisted of a diet change, temperature therapy, and oxygen and immune boosting minerals as a drip.
It is now common knowledge cancer survives on sugar, so naturally, the first thing they did was change her diet. No refined sugar. They went heavy with the fruits and vegetables.
“They used heat and oxygen to kill it, and then vitamins, minerals and amino acids to strengthen the immune system, which kills the cancer as well.”

Temperature is another factor that affects cancer cells. In temperatures exceeding 105 degrees Fahrenheit, cancer cannot survive. Infusio used a hyperthermia machine to direct the heat to one specific area in the body to fry the cancer cells while preserving all the normal cells around it. Whereas chemotherapy, while slowing down the cell dividing process, kills everything around it, even the healthy cells.
Then came the oxygen. Cancer hates oxygen. Drained blood was filled with oxygen then put back in Kerry. Jeff mentions that rounding out the treatment was a daily drip for 5 days of the week for a month. This helped with detoxifying the body and boosting the immune system, which in a healthy person, is already equipped with amino acids that kill cancer cells. But for Kerry to boost her immune system, things like Dioxychlor, GC-MAF, Vitamin B-17, Selenium, DMSO, and the ground up thymus of an organically fed cow were given to her. Jeff stayed with Kerry for the first week, then returned to the U.S. for her to finish out the rest of her treatment on her own.
He says the cost was roughly $28,000.00. A bargain, in his eyes. Especially when you consider what they would have spent in payments for years of chemotherapy, drugs, and surgery, not to mention the treatment of infections.
Kerry came back happy and healthy and in no pain from the treatments. They found another urologist that saw the benefits of integrating naturopathic medicine. They did tests and found that Kerry was completely clean of the squamous cell carcinoma. There were no traces of the original cancer.
They continue to regulate her stress levels and diet as they know cancer can come back at anytime. However, there is another point of contention that seems to be poking not only at their sides, but at those that have to face this same challenge when finding cancer in the body. Millions of people are diagnosed every year—is it up to them to figure out all the alternatives to treatment, or could the healthcare system be better equipped with knowledge and information?
Jeff pondered these fundamental questions, and he mentions a simple Google search will show you that the FDA bans everything in the States that conflicts with chemotherapy and chemo drugs. Probably because that’s where a lot of the money is. As an industry, it generates well over $125 billion dollars a year. A lot of the patents of the naturopathic treatments mentioned were banned because it was impossible to get patents on them. Again, there is a lot of money involved in patents.
He ends with a couple of messages to everyone. Firstly, chemotherapy and radiation are extremely ineffective. And, cancer can be killed. Despite what you or your loved one have heard, do not lose hope and know that more and more stories like Jeff and Kerry’s are popping up.

An American star with stripes has lured hundreds of birdwatchers to an East Anglian nature reserve – and has provided a £1million appeal to extend the site with a welcome bittern bonus.
Twitchers from many parts of Britain have been converging on Suffolk Wildlife Trust’s Carlton Marshes, near Lowestoft, to see an American bittern – a species rarely seen in Britain and never before in Suffolk. Related to the great bittern for which East Anglian reedbeds are famous, the rare transatlantic visitor is distinguished by its smaller size, longer bill, greater contrast in its wing pattern and, most obviously, prominent brown neck stripes.
Hordes of birdwatchers have visited the reserve, filling its overflow car park almost to capacity, and donating generously to the trust’s Sir David Attenborough-backed Broads Appeal. The trust aims to extend Carlton Marshes by 384 acres with the purchase of Share Marsh – which is being frequented by the rare visitor – and Peto’s Marsh, together with new infrastructure that includes a new visitor centre.
Trust warden Matt Gooch said about 600 birdwatchers visited on Sunday and others were arriving today. About £400 was raised for the appeal on the first day – boosting the fund which now stood at about £903,000.
Reserve volunteer and keen Waveney area wildlife photographer Gavin Durrant, of Worlingham, triggered the twitch by posting photographs on social media.
“I was half-hoping to photograph bitterns as there had been a few sightings recently and we’d never got a picture of one before at Carlton,” he said. “At Share Marsh a Chinese water deer started staring at me and I was watching that when out of the corner of my eye a ‘bittern’ flew in low.”
He took photos of the bird and later viewed them at home, thinking the bittern “looked a bit funny”. He posted images on social media that were quickly spotted by Suffolk naturalist Rob Holmes who identified the species as American bittern.
It is not known when the bird arrived on the reserve but many believe it may have crossed the Atlantic last autumn and wandered off course to Europe, spending the winter further south before heading north on its spring migration – and calling in at Carlton. How long it will stay, and its ultimate fate, is also unknown but many birdwatchers across Britain will be hoping it remains long enough for them to see it.
Following the highly anticipated 60 Minutes interview with Stormy Daniels, panelists on Monday’s Morning Joe changed their tone with regard to the scandal, approaching the story with a heretofore unseen level of skepticism. MSNBC contributor John Heilemann complained that the interview ‘fell short,’ while host Joe Scarborough and George Washington University Law professor Jonathan Turley questioned the porn star’s motives and credibility.
Scarborough took aim at Michael Avenatti, the lawyer representing Daniels, who had been very well-received as a guest on the show only weeks earlier. The host reminded viewers of the photo of a CD-ROM which Avenatti had tweeted a few days before the 60 Minutes segment aired. Like his compatriots, Scarborough had mistakenly assumed that whatever damning evidence the disc had contained would come out on the CBS News program:
He keeps waving around the CD. We keep hearing about pictures. What exactly are they waiting for if this is about truth, justice, and the American way instead of just a really big fat paycheck for her from some publication?
Having placed their faith in Avenatti only for him to fail to deliver the centerpiece for a new, scandalous headline, the panelists seemed to be losing their patience. As Heilemann put it, many viewers had assumed “that the story was going to be advanced in some dramatic material way,” by the 60 Minutes segment. “I think the interview in that sense fell short,” he concluded.
The panelists’ disappointment was compounded further the longer they discussed the story. Scarborough recalled a nugget of wisdom from his time as an attorney. “I remember being told, never over-promise. Under-promise, over-deliver and the jury will look positively on you,” he mused. “It seems to me that we have an attorney that’s done just the opposite.” Specifically, Scarborough had been referencing the dearth of new information about the man who had allegedly threatened Daniels – an aspect of the case that Avenatti had revealed on Morning Joe two weeks prior.
Turley took this critique a step further and began to question not only the credibility of Avenatti’s allegation, but also that of his client:
Well, there was a lot of lack of follow-up including, on credibility. You know, you have Stormy Daniels saying, “I just don’t want my kids to find out about this,” and it sort of left you with, “What? You had a career with dozens of porn movies and you were afraid your kid would find out you had a consensual relationship with the President?” I mean, those kind of disconnects weren’t followed up.
“The fact is, Stormy Daniels is not very credible,” he summarized, before adding, “She signed false statements.”
It is unclear whether the newfound skepticism displayed by Scarborough and others was genuine, or just an expression of their disappointment at not having more new material to run with. Regardless, Turley’s description of Daniels as ‘not very credible’ was a far cry from the seemingly unconditional credence that Daniels and Avenatti had been granted up to that point on Morning Joe.

A New York Police Department officer is now in jail after she was caught running a massive cross-country heroin trafficking ring, all while using her badge as a cover to keep police away from the operations.
The Drug Enforcement Administration began investigating NYPD Officer Yessenia Jimenez, 31, in January after they found the phone number of her boyfriend, Luis Soto, 33, on the cell phone of a narcotics trafficking suspect.
The investigation concluded that Jimenez and Soto were conducting a heroin trafficking operation that stemmed Mexico to New York. The New York Daily News reported that the pair was arrested this week after they made a trip to Massachusetts to meet with a heroin trafficker.
DEA, NYPD, and state police task force officers confronted Soto around 2 a.m. on Tuesday after he returned from the trip and was seen unloading bags from the trunk of his car, outside of the couple’s apartment building in the Soundview neighborhood in Bronx, New York.
Jimenez was sitting in the passenger seat of the car with a purse as her feet that contained $25,000 in cash and the Glock 9-mm gun issued to her from the NYPD—and paid for by taxpayers.
The couple was arrested, and the officers found another $25,000 in cash in a black plastic grocery bag in the car, which Soto claimed he obtained during the trip to Massachusetts. Upon searching the couple’s apartment, the officers found at least 250 grams of heroin, according to reports.
Jimenez and Soto are now facing drug trafficking and weapons charges, and while Jimenez’s lawyer, Mark Gombiner, did not comment on the drug trafficking, he did criticize the illegal weapons possession charge.
“This is her service weapon,” Gombiner said. “Given that she’s a police officer she’s kind of mandated [to have] her service weapon with her.”
The Associated Press reported that Jimenez has been suspended without pay from the New York Police Department, and in response to the news of her second job, NYPD Commissioner James O’Neill called the allegations “troubling.”
Jimenez joined the NYPD in 2015, and her Facebook page features several photos promoting the saying “Police Lives Matter” with a blue horizontal line across the photo. She also posted photos of herself in NYPD t-shirts, and her intro states, “I PROUDLY SUPPORT LAW ENFORCEMENT 👮.”
As The Free Thought Project has reported, this is not the first time a police officer has been caught using their power to cover up their involvement in drug or sex trafficking. Several officers and a lead prosecutor in Las Vegas were recently charged for working with sex traffickers in exchange for money, drugs, and access to prostitutes.
Las Vegas Now reported that the FBI began investigating the allegations in 2014 after they raided the Las Vegas home of music producer and escort service kingpin Jamal Rashid, who is known as Mally Mall. A motion filed in court alleged that officers worked with Rashid to target his competitors in the Las Vegas sex industry.
A man was also caught on video buying a bag of meth from a group of men and then leaving their house in the same police car that dropped him off. While the cameraman appeared to be one of the residents of the house who provided the drugs, he appeared shocked by the presence of the police car.
“He’s going out into a f—ing police car. Is that supposed to be one of our friends?” the man said, later remarking, “Yes, you really did just see that. That’s some f—ed up shit.”
In the case of former NYPD officer Yessenia Jimenez, she is being held on $75,000 bond, and Luis Soto is being held without bail. It is unclear how long Jimenez has been involved in trafficking drugs, and the full extent of the taxpayer-funded resources she abused during her time with the NYPD has not been made public.
As non-Republicans continue their search for scapegoats to blame for Hillary Clinton’s presidential loss to Donald Trump, a major focus of Trump skepticism has been ‘fake news’ allegedly peddled by Russia to electioneer the 2016 vote. To their credit, 13 trolls thought to be working for the Russian government were recently uncovered in a massive investigation by Robert Mueller.
It’s anyone’s guess how influential 13 Reds with a $100,000 Facebook budget for America’s 6.8 billion-dollar election may have been, but perhaps the driver behind fake news is less nefarious than we’ve been led to believe: What if people are just gossiping, lazy, idiots? It appears that may be the case, at least according to a study published today in the journal Science about how fake news spreads on social media.
It turns out that fake news spreads in a similar way to high school gossip. Fictional news not seen anywhere else is like a secret waiting to get out around school. People jump to share it because it appears exclusive and people want to be the first to break the news to their friends. “Novel information is thought to be more valuable than redundant information,” study co-author Sinan Aral, a professor of management at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, said. “People who spread novel information gain social status because they’re thought to be ‘in the know’ or to have inside information.”
Making matters worse, the study found that false news spreads more pervasively than legitimate information. In the study, researchers found that “[a]bout 126,000 rumors were spread by ∼3 million people. False news reached more people than the truth; the top 1% of false news cascades diffused to between 1000 and 100,000 people, whereas the truth rarely diffused to more than 1000 people. Falsehood also diffused faster than the truth.”
So basically, in a rush to spread gossip-like information to gain social credit, people spread fictional news because they’re also either too lazy to bother fact-checking it or too dumb to realize patently false information is, indeed, false (or both?).
Further, the study found that the other scapegoat for America’s fake news idiocracy — social media bots, whether homegrown or of Russian origin — actually appear to be a product of fake news itself. According to the researchers: “[c]ontrary to conventional wisdom, robots accelerated the spread of true and false news at the same rate, implying that false news spreads more than the truth because humans, not robots, are more likely to spread it.”
“So bots could not explain this massive difference in the diffusion of true and false news we’re finding in our data,” says co-author Sinan Aral, “it’s humans that are responsible.” [emphasis added]
Or perhaps irresponsible would be more accurate.
