God’s Prescription on Cancer

Recently at church, George Shinn was the guest speaker. Shinn is the former owner of the NBA New Orleans Hornets basketball team. He spoke about overcoming adversity. One of the many things he had to overcome was a cancer diagnosis.

At this point during his message, I thought he was going to go into the “healing cancer with chemo” speal…but he didn’t. I was shocked.

Upon finding out that Shinn had prostate cancer, he said his wife (a former nurse) immediately told him “We are getting all of those toxins out of you and getting you healthy again”. He briefly discussed how his wife put him on a regimen to heal his body from cancer. That was a few years ago. Today he is cancer free.

He didn’t really go into much more detail, but my interest was piqued. When I got home from church that day, I decided to research exactly how George Shinn healed himself from cancer.  You can read about his journey in a Times Picayune publication, called: “New Orleans Hornest Owner Geroge Shinn Cancer Free”. In the article Shinn discusses his approach.

“Shinn had conceived a three-step approach to riddance and recovery: first, identify the best physicians available in the field of prostate surgery; second, improve his current physical condition through diet, exercise and detoxification; third, reinforce his already strong bond with God.

Exhaustive research led Shinn to attend what he calls a “health boot camp” in Florida where the diet consisted of raw foods, cancer-fighting supplements and two daily enemas that cleansed his body.

The plan, Shinn said, shortened his hospital time and expedited his eventual recovery time, and slowed the disease’s progression – doctors told him biopsy slides indicated that cancer cells were on the verge of escaping the encapsulated tumor.

Upon his return to New Orleans, Shinn’s latest test, which measures prostate specific antigens that were elevated at the time of diagnosis, indicates complete success”

Today Shinn is cancer free.

There were a few key phrases that caught my attention regarding Shinn’s approach to healing his body from cancer: Exhaustive Research. Improved current physical condition. Diet. Exercise. Detoxification. Health “boot camp”. Raw food. Cancer-fighting supplements. Cleansing body. And God.

Everything we put into our body either gives us life or death.  A cancer diagnosis gives the body two choices. Two approaches. One approach builds, strengthens, & heals the body. The other approach does just the opposite.

“Most cancer patients in this country die of chemotherapy… Chemotherapy does not eliminate breast, colon or lung cancers. This fact has been documented for over a decade. Yet doctors still use chemotherapy for these tumors… Women with breast cancer are likely to die faster with chemo than without it.”  - Alan Levin, M.D.

George Shinn choose to give his body life. Unfortunately, most people don’t know to choose this route. My eyes were opened when I watched the documentaries Cut, Poison, Burn, Cancer is Curable Now, and the movie The Burzynski Movie-Cancer is Serious Business. I learned that the majority of cancer patients die from cancer treatments, not cancer.

Dr. Contreras, an amazing Christian doctor from Oasis Hope Hospital (a healing center for cancer treatments and cancer research), quotes Hosea 4:6 in the documentary Cancer is Curable Now: “My people perish for lack of knowledge”. Oh how I pray for God’s truth to reveal itself to people regarding cancer treatment options. Both cancer prevention and cancer treatment.
In an excellent book called: “Setting Yourself Apart from the Seeds of Cancer”, written by Dr. Morris F. Kellar who cured himself of cancer, he writes: “Having learned from my own personal experience with colon and pancreatic cancer 38 years ago, I chose to depart from my career as a physician/surgeon and continue to share, instead, with countless others the self-help techniques that I had researched and used to cure myself with help from God and live a healthful life (now, 72 years of age).

Both my father and his father were also physician/surgeons and followed “modern medicine” protocols when diagnosed with this same cancer of the colon and pancreas and soon after died. I chose a different path…one without drugs and surgery that is intrusive to ones’ body and depletes your natural immune system.

Thus, I encourage others to take back their power and take personal responsibility for the health of the body you have been gifted with rather than financing a medical field that only treats symptoms instead of eliminating the cause”

The more I continue to research and learn, the more astonished I become at the incredible and remarkable stories of healing. Cancer is a symptom of a failing immune system. Cleaning, building, & healing the immune system is much different than killing every living cell within the immune system.

Our bodies were created to thrive and function. Healthy diets. Exercise. Limited toxins. Cleansing. A living body needs living food.

And God said,  “I’ve given you
every sort of seed-bearing plant on Earth
And every kind of fruit-bearing tree,
given them to you for food….
I give whatever grows out of the ground for food.”
Genesis 1:29

“Genesis 1:29 is God’s original diet for mankind.  In it, He gives man a plant-based diet of foods packed with living enzyme – the life force that enables the body to regenerate its living cells at a stable or improved state.

By contrast, today’s “standard American diet” consists mainly of nutritionally empty, processed foods that are often laden with sugar and artery-clogging fat. This kind of diet is void of living enzymes, which causes degenerated cells and ultimately, disease.

Is it any wonder that the serious diseases that plague the world today can be prevented and reversed by simply changing what we eat?

Better food makes better cells and enables the immune system to function properly—to fight off and defeat virtually any disease, including heart disease and cancer. Given the right fuel, the body is literally self-healing” -Hallelujah Acres

In Dr. O’Shea’s article “To The Cancer Patient: Natural Cures vs. Traditional” , he asks the question:


“The traditional cover story is that we don’t know what causes cancer so therefore we have to keep spending $100 billion per year to look for the cause.

In reality the opposite is true. The true causes of cancer are well known, well documented and have been for decades.

What alters normal DNA? How do normal cells become persistent mutant cells, which grow tumors?

There are thousands of everyday DNA-altering, carcinogenic situations, well researched. Let’s list just a few:

  • 60,000 chemicals in our air, food, and water
  • vaccines
  • processed foods
  • Genetically Modified foods
  • prescription drugs
  • over-the-counter medications
  • tobacco
  • air pollution
  • fluoridated water
  • pesticides on produce
  • herbicides on produce
  • chlorine
  • other contaminants in our water

If fruits and vegetables are not marked organic, they are sprayed. What do you think happens with all those tons of military-grade commercial pesticides sprayed onto the crops, poisons which cling to the plant? When it rains, the poison washes down into the soil, is taken up by the plant and becomes part of the plant. And they tell you just wash the fruit before you eat it and it’ll be fine? And this is what we feed our kids, and all this is legal. These poisons alter human DNA.

With vaccines, it’s deliberate cell invasion: attenuated or mutated antigens injected into the child’s blood. Sixty-eight vaccines before age 18. 

Looking for a cure for cancer – who are we kidding? A cure for cancer that will enable us to continue defiling our blood with all the above carcinogenic substances, right?

Cure for cancer? Step one: stop poisoning your blood with the causes!”

I love the fb page Healthy Families For God. This week they are talking about cancer: “Attacking a cancerous tumor is like treating a fever–it only targets the manifestation of the illness, not the cause of the illness or the illness itself. We have been led to believe that a tumor is the problem. However, a tumor is the body’s way of trying to heal itself from an underlying problem. It is a natural, God-given process to attempt to maintain homeostasis. When we only target the body’s healing process, we miss the real cause of the problem that led to the tumor in the first place”

I loved learning about George Shinn’s story to healing his body of cancer. Today George Shinn is cancer free and he didn’t have kill a single cell to do so. He gave his body life!

*Note: This post is NOT about childhood cancer, specifically pediatric brain tumors. I have very, very dear friends who have walked this journey and after much research, I have come to the conclusion that there is simply not enough research available concerning treatment plans for pediatric cancer. I have dear friends who lost their son to a Grade 4 Brainstem Glioma, only 6 months after diagnosis. I have another set of dear friends who have been walking the pediatric cancer journey for 7 years. Their son was diagnosed with a brain tumor at age 2. This summer he celebrated his 9th b-day (Praise God), but my friends are still in the fight for their sons life and have spent these last 7 years in the trenches of pediatric cancer. Their son has undergone 3 brain surgeries to remove the tumor, 2 rounds of radiation, and every alternative treatment plan known. While childhood cancers are on the rise at an alarming rate, the bottom line is there is simply not enough research to know how to properly treat pediatric brain cancer.

  1. Thank you so much for this post! I have been reading about these things as well and specifically about alternative treatments. Have you ever thought about setting up your blog to be able to be saved by Pinning on Pinterest?? I find myself saving my e-mails when I want to keep your posts but Pinning would be so much easier! Just a friendly suggestion/request since you do post such amazing, well thought out essays with wonderful information!

    • Shannon on Pinterest’s website you can download a “Pin It” button, and then you can pin whatever you want from whatever website. If you go to pinterest.com , log in, and then in the upper right hand corner you hit “about”, it is the second thing in the drop down menu. This is something that I have started to do instead of saving blog posts in my e-mail and/or bookmarking them, and I love it! Hope that helped! :)

      • Lisa, Thanks so much. I tried to find a pinterest button to put on my blog, but wordpress said they didn’t have that option available. And I don’t have a pinterest account. Shannon, let me know if that works for you!

  2. So I did finally get a chance to try the “pin it” button but it seems to only want to pin an image, not the whole post. I’m still trying to figure it out. Thanks for the suggestion.

    • When you pin the image it works like a link to the entire post-like you pin the image and write your description, and when you go to view your pin later you click on it to make it big off of your board, and then click it again and it will bring you to the post :) I know the entire thing is confusing it took me awhile to figure it out!
