can no longer count how many oncologists we’ve
been to…all specialist in pancreatic cancer,a kind of cancer in which the patient has little
chance of getting cured. This is the most aggressive
form of cancer. Too little time is given to
you to think…if you are still able to
think straight given your serious condition.
When I had the courage to ask the doctor how
long I will live if I would not undergo operation,
his response stunned me - 6 months only, one
year at the most.
When I heard those words…I felt the world
standing still. Everything the doctor was saying
was incomprehensible. I felt like a prisoner
handed a death sentence. During those moments
I felt numbness all over my body. What I could
only feel at that time were tears running down
Like any other person with serious ailment,
I wanted a speedy cure. At that time, the fastest
solution, and the only solution we know of,
is surgery, nothing else. I braced myself for
a 12-24 hour operation…my gallbladder
will be removed; part of my liver, stomach and
duodenum will be taken away. But if during surgery
it is discovered that the tumor (which was then
2 inches round) was too intimate or too close
to the pancreas, they will not remove it, and
instead terminate the surgery by closing the
incision. Of course, the other parts of my body
will have already been destroyed.
I consented to surgery even if it would be
very difficult on my part, rather than waiting
defenseless, because at that time (again) it
was the only solution we knew until the issue
of blood came up. You have not asked me, but
I am one of Jehovah’s Witnesses and as
such we adhere strictly to a Bible-based standard
-- to avoid the use of blood, including the
My doctors would be indignant each time my
refusal to accept blood transfusion would be
brought up. Threat, pressure, intimidation --
these, they (the doctors) resorted to, just
so I would agree to a surgery using blood.
Every consultation would just result in depression,
since it was impossible for me to be operated
on without the use of blood, and I would never
compromise the firm foundation of the Bible
teaching to abstain from blood -- even if this
would man losing my life.
This is the main reason why I was not operated
on, thanks to being a Jehovah’s Witness,
and my strict compliance with Bible standard
of abstaining from blood -- otherwise, I would
have gone under the knife, must have been through
chemotherapy, or cobalt, or would not have been
here before you alive because I would have been
6 feet under the ground.
In Search of the Right Treatment
So, what would we do? My husband and I started
researching…we read numerous books…until
we discovered a different kind of treatment,
which is called “Alternative Treatment”.
We tried this approach. We learned that to treat
a disease, the whole body is involved. In my
case, it is not enough to focus on my diseased
pancreas but to include my whole body as well.
We learned holistic treatment -- a form of treatment
that includes the whole body not just he affected
Each night we read a different book. We stayed
late just to learn more about alternative treatment.
Each research confirmed our conviction that
surgery was not the only solution -- in fact,
it was not even required. We only have to change
our lifestyle, what we have been used to. Alternative
treatment is not easy, one has to be patient,
self-discipline is important. You just have
to believe in what you are doing.
In my case, we started from nothing, zero knowledge
with respect to alternative treatment. Added
to this was the fact that we were running against
time, very short (just six months). Each moment
must not be wasted…every move must be
precise, each decision is crucial. Each wrong
move meant one big step backward, only to start
all over again.
One very difficult aspect of having cancer
is having many “well-meaning” people
around you, who just want to be sympathetic
and offer any help or suggestion the best way
they know. Each one of them has an opinion to
give, a little pressure here and there for you
to try this or that or just plain counsel on
what to do given my situation. Of course, you
get confused…but I have learned not to
be carried away by pressure. The most important
thing to consider the moment you know that you
have cancer is to stay focused and not to be
swayed by mere talk.
While we were researching, making the first
move seemed difficult -- especially since we
were not sure if we were doing the right thing.
We rested our hope on what we learned from our
readings. We were not sure if things would be
easy for us, nor were we convinced that it was
the right track towards recovery.
I admit, many times I lost confidence in what
my husband and I was doing. Many nights in bed,
the thought of not seeing the dawn of a new
day gripped me. Once I had the painful attacks,
I had this desire to undergo operation…but
again thinking about the blood issue, this firmed
up my decision to go ahead with the alternative
I took so many food supplements…a variety
of them…whatever it is that I read, I
would buy…whoever would give me, I would
accept. But I realized that it was not enough.
Until one evening…I had a severe attack.
I felt as if there was a fresh deep wound stomach
being gnawed by a rat. I woke up my husband
and told him that perhaps it was already my
end. I was hoping that we could find a treatment
for me, hopefully herbal medicine. We prayed
fervently to Jehovah God to help us find a medicine
that would directly address my ailment.
Introduction to Tian Xian
The following day, a Chinese sister in faith,
visited me and made an appointed with a cancer
researcher who introduced the medicine Tian
Xian (or commonly called China No. 1 in Asia).
I had heard of a fellow Jehovah’s Witness
who was then into this kind of medication. When
we arrived at the Green & Gold International
Exports Office in Manila, we were welcomed by
a kind and very knowledgeable specialist in
alternative treatment, Mr. Manuel Kiok. He showed
us the Tian Xian packet and explained to us
its effect to the body of a cancer patient like
For the first time after I was diagnosed with
cancer, my heart was overflowing with joy. Now,
I have hope. Through Mr. Kiok, Tian Xian will
help extend my life, much better than the 6
months to one year lease on life if I would
not undergo surgery.
Effects of Tian Xian
On the first weeks of taking Tian Xian Liquid,
combined with Tian Xian Capsule #6, I remember
emitting black wastes from my body. At the start
it seemed that my disease was counteracting
the medicine. There was some kind of wrestling
going on inside my body every time I took Tian
Xian. I knew then that the medicine was proving
to be effective. So I continued the medicine
hoping that one day I would be pronounced fully
Six months has passed, I am still alive. Still
weak, still uncertain…and the only test
I was doing to measure the degree of malignancy
of my cancer is thru HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin).
The test is based on a theory proposed by Dr.
Howard Beard and other researchers who contend
that cancer is related to a misplaced trophoblast
cell that become malignant in a manner similar
to pregnancy in that they both secrete HCG.
As a consequence, a measure of the amount of
HCG found in the urine is also a measure of
the degree of malignancy. The higher the number,
the greater the severity of the cancer.
Above 50 units is positive of cancer, 49 and
below is negative of cancer. My first reading
is 80 (very high). I was overwhelmed and scared
of that count. But within a few months, we tried
to lower my HCG count. From 80, it went down
to 73, then 64…I continued taking Tian
Xian, at the same time observing my food intake.
I refrained from eating food with sugar, salt,
fat, oil, white flour, only organic foods. Each
time I had an attack, Tian Xian helped relieve
the pain. I really felt its effect.
When I felt I had been cured, I tried to stop
taking Tian Xian. I stopped for two weeks, dependent
only on food supplements. After that, I had
my HCG taken -- too confident that the result
would not be affected by not taking Tian Xian.
The result -- from a reading of 56, which is
very close to being cancer-free, my HCG went
up to as high as 64.5.
And when I resumed taking Tian Xian again,
my HCG went down. I tried for the second time
to stop taking this medicine -- thinking that
it was just coincidental. The same thing happened,
my HCG went up again. What does this show? That
Tian Xian greatly helped in lessening the severity
of my cancer.
After 2 years, I am happy to inform everybody
here present, that my HCG count is 51. From
80, two years ago, it went down to 51. I never
thought I would still be alive after two years.
It is hard to believe that I am here standing
before you, alive and well.
Doctors Takes a Step Back
I once talked to a doctor; he was astounded
to learn that I have pancreatic cancer, healthy
despite not undergoing surgery. He could not,
or, shall I say did not believe that I am a
cancer patient. Each time I talk to doctors
who refuse to believe that I have pancreatic
cancer, I would explain to them that I am taking
herbal medicine particularly Tian Xian. Invariably,
a shake of the head is the response I get.
Two years had passed when they convince me
to undergo immediate operation. Now, they were
shocked to see me alive. So they concluded that
I am not sick of cancer. They said that their
experience has proven that a pancreatic cancer
patient has no chance of surviving months after
he has been diagnosed despite being aided by
I could not believe what I heard; two years
ago when I was very weak and thin, they insisted
that I undergo surgery, threatening that I would
die if I delayed my decision. Now that they
see me healthy, strong and very much alive,
they would claim that maybe I have no cancer?
After several oncologists confirmed that I have
cancer, after making me go through laboratory
tests such as CT scan, MRCP and scheduling me
for surgery -- they would tell me after two
years that perhaps it is not cancer?
When I was weak then, they were certain it
was cancer. Now that I am physically strong,
they are no longer that certain? What could
perhaps be the reason? Is it because they had
no hand in my recovery? Or is it because they
are reluctant to admit that the alternative
treatment that I used proved effective? That
because of my diet…of Tian Xian, and with
the help of Jehovah God, I survived the prognosis
they had set for me? But of course they could
not accept that these were the factors that
contributed to my recovery. By their reactions,
however…there is one thing I am sure of…I
am thankful that I did not commit myself to
Because of this, let me take this opportunity
to thank Mr. & Mrs. Manuel Kiok for introducing
Tian Xian to us, which is the reason I am enjoying
good health. But of course, all credit must
first go to our God Almighty Jehovah, who, if
not for Him, if not for His law of abstaining
from blood which I firmly obeyed, I would not
have looked for alternatives. I am convinced
that He guided us in finding the best and appropriate
treatment for me. And one of these is Tian Xian.
I may not be fully cured, but my standing before
you after two years is already a big factor…a
great miracle for a pancreatic cancer patient
Again, my fervent thanks to Jehovah God and
to His only-begotten Son, Jesus Christ…to
my beloved husband, Victor who painstakingly
and patiently supported me in my search for
alternative treatment that cured me, to my parents
for their love and support…brothers in
faith who continuously pray to Jehovah God in
my behalf…and I would like to make special
mention to Ms. Sandy Yap who introduced me to
Mr. Kiok…from the bottom of my heart,
thank you…and of course to the kindness
and goodness of Mrs. Priscilla & Mr. Manuel
Kiok, who helped me through Tian Xian. I also
wish to extend my thanks to the one who discovered
Tian Xian…Prof. Wang Zhen Guo.
Challenge to Everyone
Lastly, to all cancer patients here tonight,
I know you too, can beat cancer…we can
reverse cancer! Aside from taking Tian Xian,
feed your body good nutrients through diet and
supplements, thus providing your body the raw
materials that it needs to rebuild itself. Then
feed your heart the good feelings of love, forgiveness,
confidence in your abilities, a sense of purpose
in your life, and a trusting relationship with
your Creator. With this in mind, I firmly believe
- we can recover from cancer…we can defeat
Thank you everyone
