Today, Albert’s mum enjoys good health and a normal professional life. She’s hasn’t had a kidney failure since her change in diet. She follows a strict plant-based diet accompanied by some botanical remedies for maintenance. She keeps getting tested for tumoral activity regularly. In one occasion the tumoral markers went up again, as she had worsened her diet and stopped taking the anti-tumoral plants, she’s a heavy smoker. She went back to strict diet and herbal remedies and the tumoral activity ceased in a matter of weeks. Until then, Albert was still skeptical that plants would be so effective. But this event really confirmed what we were all hoping, that there was a direct correlation between the plant-based solutions she was taking and the amount of tumor activity she had.
Medical tests indicate the tumor has completely dissolved and the tumoral markers in the blood tests come back clear.
Albert’s mother follows 2 months of radical change in diet, and a rigorous use of medicinal plants. The medical tests now indicate the tumor has reduced by 1mm. This is good news as it seems to indicate at least it’s not growing anymore. Albert’s mother sticks to the diet and plants for another month.
December 2016 to March 2017
After all the research, Albert creates a list of plants to help his mother reduce the tumour. He buys the plants on-line and teaches her how to take them using the books he’s read. Albert also creates a diet plan completely based in plant foods, removing 95% of animal, chemical and processed foods.
At this point doctors are still not offering any treatment, and they discard a transplant for the risk involved due to her age.
Albert, drawning in anger and frustration decides it’s time to try alternatives, that until recently have sounded unconventional.
Albert spends day and night researching on-line and reading books about medicinal plants for cancer, nutrition for cancer and the history of the pharmaceutical industry. He finds the works of Josep Pamies, Maria Treben and other experts in medicinal plants and natural remedies. He’s surprised by the amount of positive testimonials he finds on YouTube of people who used these plants. He’s particularly shocked by the amount of positive scientific evidence about their effects found in the recognized american medical database PubMed. He’s still very skeptical about these alternatives, but he ponders it’s worth a try as doctors don’t offer anything else to try, and the secondary effects of these treatments are almost non-existent.

Albert gets a call from his mother to let him know that now, 6 months since the removal of her left kidney, her other kidney is presented with similar symptoms. This is really bad news, and Albert takes them especially bad. He’s frustrated, depressed and angry at his mum’s doctors because he can’t understand how they allowed this to happen. It’s still fairly early and the tumor is not big, but Albert can’t help but thinking of the worst scenario: that she might die because there’s no solution.

Doctors state, at her age, this is the only way she has to get better. At this point Albert’s family completely trusts that doctors understand exactly what she has, and how to treat it. Without hesitation, she gets the surgery done. She now has to live with one kidney for the rest of her life.

Following an episode of kidney collapse Albert’s mother goes to see the doctor to get checked for her kidneys.
She goes to a recognised private clinic in Barcelona. The only solution doctors offer is removing her kidney via surgical operation. Doctor state no chemotherapy or radiotherapy can be practiced.
