Cancer Hits The Homestead

Recently, somebody in our family very dear to us was diagnosed with cancer. I’m not sharing who that person is just yet because they haven’t made that public. That word, cancer, has devastating emotions usually accompanied with it.

One of the reasons we chose to live off grid was to get away from the ease of eating so many of the processed foods that you easily find in more populated areas. When you have to drive 30 minutes to even find a gas station, going out to eat doesn’t happen so often. Instead, you learn to cook and that means healthier eating.

We wanted to live on land that would allow us to grow a lot of our own food and eat fresh greens from our own garden. We wanted to raise our own meat and get away from commercialized farming that raise animals in horrible conditions and feed them who knows what as a daily diet. Living on the homestead has allowed us to do those things while at the same time give us a healthier lifestyle where exercise happens often and fresh mountain and forest air is abundant.
Paul Nison, a friend of mine who has dedicated much of his life learning about health has made us aware of a documentary series called, The Truth About Cancer.

I grew up in Saint Louis and every year in high school, some friends and I walked the Susan G Komen march downtown to help cure cancer. But I’m not so sure the medical industry really wants to cure cancer. This part of the medical industry earns billions of dollars when treating this disease and to find a cure at this point would put millions out of work. Literally!

So what is the answer? What is causing this horrible disease among so many people today? And what could be a better way of treating and preventing it?
I hope you will take the time to watch this remarkable documentary series called, The Truth About Cancer. This could literally change your life and the life of a loved one.

  1. Zach my wife and I finally moved out of Illinois and are also living in Arkansas we are striving for the same ad you and your family I look forward to watching the documentary. Thank you for sharing with us . It is much appreciated

  2. Long time reader and first time commenter;
    Lost my wife to Cancer 13 years ago, I pray you do well.
    I will tell you; I truly believe there IS a cure for Cancer, not only in a good ‘Lifestyle’ but a clinical cure.
    BUT why would the .gov and the industry allow it? And yes I’m cynical to both. I believe they (.gov) has come to the conclusion that the public long outlive their usefulness right around retirement age, amazingly most illness and cancers kill right about the same age, So if they allow this killer to continue all the dependent’s on the .gov and the “system” go away as soon as that person dies. A FACT, SS pays $250 of a lifetime collections (sometimes tens of thousands of $$$) from a working person, they keep the rest. Cancer is HUGE Money for the .gov AND the medical industry, do you really trust either? .……. Need I say more?

  3. Hello to everyone at the Bauer Homestead and followers. Sad to agree that living in the city is a challenge when trying to follow our Heavenly Father’s rules and advise. Happy to say my family is “awake” and among other things , practices clean eating, stays away from GMOs and the medical cabal. Earlier this year my 72 yo Madresita was diagnosed with breast cancer. Luckily it was caught at the early stage 1. Her doctors were eager to give her the only alternative of chemo and breast removal. Needless to say our entire experience with U.S. doctors was a nightmare We were blessed to be recommended to a natural healing clinic in Monterey, Mexico and happy to report my Madresita has cancer no more. It only took one month of cleansing, eating vegan, lots rest & meditation, bathing in hot springs and all under a hollistic doctor’s supervision. I researched into that option here in U.S. but it is actually illegal. My 2 best options where the Gerson clinic and the Sanatorio Canoa, both in Mexico. My Madresita decided to go to Monterey being it was closer to Texas where she lives and the cost was a little more reasonable. What we learned from this experience is that our Heavely Father made us with a system that can heal naturally if we allow it by following His laws. I sincerely hope that this dear person whom you love gets the attention he/she needs soon and that our Heavenly Father will bring healing and blessings. Shalom

  4. Eight months after moving onto 42 acres totally off grid my husband became a chronic Leukemia patient with several other medical issues. This is our last farm the homestead of dreams. He tried to die on several occasions and became ill (prior to this a healthy individual) at 62 years . Eight years later we are still here and his health is fragile but we do what we can and wouldn’t be anywhere else. God bless you all .
