In October of 1984, about four days after his wedding day John was diagnosed with testicular cancer. Greatly dissatisfied with past experiences with the medical profession and the options being offered him, he decided to seek other options.
Two years prior to this diagnosis John had read two books on Macrobiotics, “You Are All Sanpaku” by George Ohsawa, and “Natural Healing Through Macrobiotics” by Michio Kushi. The philosophy of diet and healing as explained by these two men made the most sense to John, he decided to give macrobiotics a try.
Just weeks after receiving dietary guidelines from world renown macrobiotic counselor, Denny Waxman, the transformative effects on John’s health could be felt. One and a half years into his new diet, feeling healed, John went off his diet and suffered major setbacks as the cancer returned and spread.
At Methodest Hospital in Philadelphia PA. John was diagnosed with stage 3 testicular seminoma and receved chemotherapy, radiation, and operations. Although these treatments bought him time, the ultimate healing came through macrobiotics. CAT scans still revealed small masses but John’s Doctors told him that more chemo would be lethal and as it was he would never father children due to damage from the chemo.
Returning to macrobiotic counselor Denny Waxman, John received recommendations that not only rid his body of the toxic effects of the chemo and kept him cancer free for almost 25 years but enabled him to father four beautiful and musically talented children .
