Fitness Saves Wounded Warrior

Fitness saves Wounded Warrior 

 A cancer Survivors ROCKY style comeback Transformation.
After losing my 9 year old son to brain cancer (does not deserve a capitol c), 6 months later OCT-31-02 I was diagnosed with grade 3 cancer of the large intestine (transverse colon) see pic, an apple sized tumor was initially detected. An herbal tonic was taken daily for 2 weeks and then a strawberry sized tumor was surgically removed. I was  medically discharged from the Army. Day of Surgery, wasted down to 124 lbs.

 I lost my son, my career , my health, all in 6 months.

    This is very personal for me writing down the details of my hopes that it may serve to lesson another person suffering by giving him or her hope, encouragement, and how they may better arm themselves with tools that can put a dent in some of the symptoms they may have..

  With mind and body utterly devastated I was totally discouraged, and hit rock bottom.
Next was 6 nasty months of CHEMO, unbelievable nausea, body wasting, weakness, body weight  down to 124. finished CHEMO on JULY-15-03
Chronic Fatigue,depression, PTSD, Fybromyagia set in . Everything smelled terrible, couldn't hardly eat. The sensitivity
of my hearing and sense of smell shot through the roof over the next few years, along with bouts of extreme nervous fatigue.

     I stay indoors most of the time because of the cold sensitivity,( I can take all kinds of heat though and LOVE the SUN...) or rather away from crowds and noise. I live in a sound proofed room with my weights and my music. Family interaction is difficult but well worth spending time with my wife and 3 boys. I rarely go out in public because of the noise , chemical smells ie perfume, cologne, hair spray, fabric softener, hand sanitizer, windex cleaner, etc, etc. Hospital smells are the absolute worst.  I use ballistic ear plugs in my ears to block out most of the noise, sometimes headphones over the top of them.

    Another sensitivity I have is with dirt, dust, filth and germs... hate them...cant stand to be around them or touch anything thats been in public...for example the other day I had to with my wife to Sams Club and help her get some bulk items and I could not stand to touch the hand rail of the shopping cart! Disgusting! I had to pull my hoodie sleeves down over the grip to avoid touching it...

  I use all natural essential oils to disinfect everything , Lemon , Peppermint or Lavender in a small spray bottle does the trick...also very uplifting to the mind.

 The ways I drastically reduced the symptoms of  PTSD, FYBROMYAGLGIA, LOWER BACK PAIN,   that I had are The Emotion Code, NLP, HYPNOSIS, Weight Training , MMA workouts, punching bag, I love to lift weights! Some artwork,  gardening....  and of course writing on this blog to share my experience with others so that I may be able to reach out and connect with other Veterans and give them hope...

I knew that I could  not let this get the best of me, How was I going to get my body back in shape? How could I get Stronger, Faster ? How can I eliminate Emotional pain? How can I overcome the debilitating symptoms of PTSD, DEPRESSION, Negative Thinking?

  My background in fitness started with Wrestling (2nd grade), Baseball, Football, Track, Soccer, Basketball, Tae Kwon Do, BJJ (Brazilian Jui Jitsu). U.S Army bootcamp Ft. Benning , AIT training Ft. Bragg.

    A few months prior to getting Cancer I received a fitness certification.  I discovered that the training methods of Mixed Martial Artists and Boxers yielded the quickest results in strength, gaining muscle for power, and stripping body fat quickly.
   In 2014 I discovered a fantastic program called The Emotion Code which taught me how to eliminate Emotional blocks that were holding me back, how to locate and erase emotional and physical pain using Applied Kinesiology and magnets. I have recently became a Certified Emotion Code Practitioner.
   After all looking at every type of athlete's physiques and considering the many different types of  physical demands placed on each athlete.
  • Football 
  • Basketball
  • Baseball
  • Hockey
  • Soccer
  • Boxing
  • MMA
I asked myself
Who has the most impressive, most powerful and strongest  physiques?
Boxers and Mixed Martial Artist's (MMA) !!

 I got immensely motivated, focused and took massive action.
Honestly if it had not been for my faith in God and relating to Job of the Old Testament who endured many afflictions and having the perspective of the after life knowing I will see my son again on the other side,  I seriously would have lost the will to live by now...
