Dear Dr. Ghei, I would like to take this opportunity to express to you my most heartfelt appreciation for not only your skill as my functional & integrative medicine doctor but also your compassion throughout this process. Way back in Feb of 2016 I was diagnosed with stage three advanced breast cancer. Having been in good health for most of my life and finding out that I might not have much time left put me and my family in a lot of pain and stress. However, after consulting with you, your positive attitude and aggressive approach towards your treatment protocols has helped me fight this disease on a daily basis. Your skill and knowledge and positive outlook has been playing a major role. I truly feel that not only do I owe my life to you, but that I was blessed to find myself placed in your more than capable hands.
I also appreciate your continuous support through these testing times, giving me your time when ever I needed it. The list of supplements is extremely long but I’ve gotten used to taking them as I realize that with my serious diagnosis they are needed and that they have actually helped me get back on my feet after going through eight cycles of chemo, surgery & reconstruction followed by twenty-five cycles of radiation. I also wanted to add that my oncologist was certainly surprised with the level of energy I used to exhibit throughout my treatment. The conventional nutritionist that the hospital provided at one point realized that I would not be taking their diet plan and finally left me alone. Needless to say 2016 was a testing year of my life. As a patient living with advanced breast cancer I must say that we cannot go by the numbers the doctors give with regards to life expectancy but can add several more years to our life by making changes to our diet and lifestyle as you have taught me.
Saying “Thank You” seems so insufficient but I can find no words that truly express my feelings appropriately, so I will stick with those two simple words with the hope that you know the depth of emotion and gratitude they contain. Sincerely, Shalini Khurana Ontario, Canada
