I am 50 years old and have been a firefighter for over 20 years. Every 5 years, we are given physical exams in order to track health issues. Several years agoafter losing several veteran firefighters to cancer and heart disease, it was decided that yearly physicals would be in order. For the past 4 years, I have been given yearly exams that included a chest x-ray and have not had anything out of the ordinary show up… until my most recent physical. That x-ray revealed spots on my lungs called granulomas. Now, in this part of the country that isn’t such a big deal with the bird populations we have but I had never had anything show up before. I was told to follow up with my primary physician. 

We were very surprised by this x-ray because of the diet we have tried to maintain over the past 20 years. My family has done our best to eat organic and avoid the harmful pesticides on our foods, avoiding ingredients like corn syrup, hydrogenated oils, MSG and GMOs. Basically, we eat real food that has not been so overprocessed that it has no nutritional value. If we eat grains, my wife would just grind her own to bake with (gluten free for the past 3 years or so). Dairy was raw milk from a farmer we knew who lived several miles away, and we would go every two weeks to pick it up. Not a typical American diet but one we strive for. I’ve even had to excuse myself from the “kitchen” at the fire house because of the food choices my colleagues have made. 

While processing this information and waiting for the followup exam, my best friend (who just so happens to be my wife and a SHAPE practitioner) started me on the SHAPE Program. I was told to eat only the foods on the list but in limited quantities and take the drops. The idea being there was inflammation on my lungs and this should work on inflammation. 

Well, I’m pleased to report that during the course of this SHAPE Program, I lost over 40 lbs., which is amazing because I have always been described as “skinny” by many. I’ve stopped snoring and am happy to report that after the followup with my physician who made it very clear that we were “talking about cancer,” the followup x-ray revealed nothing. The spots on my lungs were gonelike they were never even there. 

Thank you, Lord! 

And thank you Dr. Frisch for listening to our Lord and giving us this program. 

I feel better than I have in years, with energy and strength. My children, my wife and I are very happy with this result.
