Joop is a Radical Remission survivor of stage 4 testicular cancer. Diagnosed at the age of 45, he combined the best of conventional and alternative treatments in order to overcome incredible odds.
Here is his story in his own words:
In 2009 I was diagnosed with testicular cancer. I did not change anything in my life, chose to be operated on, and took Carboplatin.
In 2011, I was re-diagnosed as a result of a CT scan during regular checkups. It showed a 5cm tumor near my left kidney. A biopsy was used to determine the type of cancer. This time, I radically changed my diet, lifestyle, spiritual connection.
I used all kinds of complementary treatments: Dendritic Cell Therapy, Hyperthemia, Bioresonance, Chiropractic, Homeopathy, loads of supplements, and for the last year Cannabis Oil. Every three months I had a check-up and every time I changed my path accordingly.
For the metastasis, I did not receive any conventional treatment. At the end of 2015 it started shrinking. It was 9.5×7.5cm, then 6 months later it went 7.2×4.5cm, and again, 6 months after that, to 3.2×1.4cm.
As of September 2016, at a regular checkup, the result was that the tumor shrunk again. Not as much as I hoped, but then again I did not fully focus on it the last year. It’s now 2.7×1.6, down from last year;s 3.3×2.6 cm.
It has been a long road, but I’m there now!
EDITOR'S NOTE: As of October 2020, Joop is thriving post-diagnosis.
