OMG, have I got a tale for you…
Some of you might remember the issues I had with my Hep C Specialist, from my previous blog: Can our Medical Professionals just do their jobs please!
To re-cap quickly…I have gone through a staggering amount of unnecessary and uncomfortable situations during the past several months of treatment. He has made countless errors and as a result I simply cannot trust him with my health, Hep C treatment or my life!
As you all know, my viral load came back Zero in only 8 weeks of therapy…I Believe….and I Am Healthy, Strong and Transformed! (Sept 23rd). The doctor and pharmaceutical company would have you believe it was the medication that did the healing, I am here to tell you that I worked harder on healing myself because of my lack of trust and faith in my specialist. I was Divinely guided as to how to proceed with the correct dosages for me and would release the virus the fastest. I used a combination of several tools, techniques and disciplines as well as herbs, vitamins and minerals.
You see, I am not a typical patient… I have spent over 22 years exploring, studying, certifying and facilitating several alternative-healing modalities, spiritual techniques and philosophies. Through my training and strong connection to spirit I have come to understand the unique interconnection that we all have to everything. I hold a B. Msc. in Metaphysical Science, Certification as a specialized Applied Kinesiologist, Certification as a Reiki Master & Teacher in two methods, Certification in Feng Shui, I founded the Beishu Method™ a unique form of healing taught to me by my spiritual guides and I facilitate programs and workshops. I have assisted thousands with their health and spiritual development…for God sakes, I am clairvoyance, clairaudience and clairsentience, it is pretty hard to pull the wool over these eyes.
That being said, I, unlike my specialist, checked my blood work diligently so I could monitor the results of what my spiritual guides were having me do. I had to call Dr. Karim several times to address concerns I had about specific results. Please notice what I wrote: I had to call him several times it wasn’t the other way around…him calling me with concern!
Then I noticed the error of all errors, he had ordered Hep B viral loads to be done…I am a Hep C patient, I may not be a doctor but I do know that is a different virus.
But wait, there’s more…
When I called to office to find out if he realized he had been checking the viral loads for the wrong virus twice now, his response was, “Am I bad.” WHAT, are you joking me. What if I was a regular patient who didn’t even know I could check my results through ehealth.ca? What if I did but didn’t have a clue what to look for? What if I didn’t know my blood work was considered CRITCAL and I needed to be monitored closely? Was my health at risk with this man at the helm?
But wait, there’s more…
When I went to the lab for the correct test, they faxed the wrong blood work again and the lab had to call the office for the correct info!
But wait, there’s more…
At one point, I was soooo sick, I told Dr. Karim I couldn’t possibly work and it was causing financial difficulties, I was going to discontinue the medication. He told me he didn’t have my viral count back yet (this was of course due to the lab checking me for the wrong virus)…I could see by looking at the ehealth website that the results were in. He said he would assist me to apply for disability so I wouldn’t have to worry.
On some tests, the specialist has to call the lab and I couldn’t see the results for the viral load, is for the specialist only. It was a Friday, he told me it would be another week and I needed to go pick up my medication in case the virus was still active. So I went and picked up the meds, costing $13,700.00…then a miracle happened, he called me on a Saturday, a Saturday?… and voila, suddenly he had the results, no virus detectable! So was it that he simply didn’t call the lab until after I talked with him and then called me Saturday with the good news?
My intuition told me that doctors are making money – LOTS of money for prescribing drugs. Personally I think the practice of drug kickbacks to doctors is a big reason for the ever increasing prices of drugs and the huge problem of drug affordability. The practice of drug kickbacks is unethical and a danger to our health and the health of your loved ones, particularly if they are in the hospital and vulnerable to exploitation. My question is, “Do you the reader think this was a coincidence?” It very well could be, but my trust with him was broken after so many issues.
So…I thank you, if it wasn’t for your lack of due diligence and knowledge, I may still be ill. Because If I would have trusted him, I likely would have followed his every instruction instead of my spiritual guides. For all I know I might still be having Hep B tests done!
But wait, there’s more…
Last Friday, I had to surrender to going to Social Assistance, I have not worked for 3 months because the medication made me so ill. I decided to follow up with what Dr. Karim suggested. I applied on line, someone called me, did a brief telephone interview and gave me a list of what I needed to bring in. One of the items was a note from the Doctor. I called and told them what I needed, a simple note confirming I was receiving treatment, when I was diagnosed and how much longer the treatment would be. I was told that he was busy and I wouldn’t be able to get it until the following week. I asked if I made the note and emailed it, could he just read and sign it so I could get the paperwork in? The receptionist told me that was a good idea, so I did and Dr. Karim wouldn’t sign it!
But wait, there’s more…
I sent this email:
You are the one who encouraged me to follow through with disability, now they have finally called me back and I have to bring all my documents in. I have had to run around all day to get these together with my bucket so I don’t I don’t vomit in the car. If I don’t turn them in today I will need to wait another week – week and a half just for a second phone interview, I haven’t even seen anyone yet.
It will take at least 2 months for me to get a cheque, I have enough money for 1 month…you are forcing me to go off the medication so I will feel well enough to work in a month when I have detoxed from the meds. I have no choice, I have no money and this is what Social Services needs to even give me an appointment. They will have a complete booklet for you to fill out when and if I get approved.
My injection day is today and I want you to know I have no intention of picking up my prescription or staying on this medication because without financial assistance, I cannot continue, I am tapped out!
Rev. Carol Lefevre B.Msc.
What were the results of my email you ask?…well, it is now Friday, one week later and I have still not heard from my specialist. Could it be that he isn’t aware of the risks of stopping these meds quickly? Could it be that he doesn’t care? Or perhaps he has read my blog…your guess is as good as mine.
Below is the Hippocratic Oath…see if there are any infringements for yourself…talk about stepping into the Karmic hotpot.
I swear in the presence of the Almighty and before my family, my teachers, and my peers that according to my ability and judgement, I will keep the Oath and Stipulation:
To reckon all who have taught me this art equally dear to me as my parents and in the same spirit and dedication to impart a knowledge of the art of medicine to others. I will continue with diligence to keep abreast of advances in medicine. I will treat without exception all who seek my ministrations, so long as the treatment of others is not compromised thereby, and I will seek the counsel of particularly skilled physicians where indicated for the benefit of my patient.
I will follow that method of treatment which according to my ability and judgement I consider for the benefit of my patient and abstain from whatever is harmful or mischievous. I will neither prescribe nor administer a lethal dose of medicine to my patient even if asked, nor counsel any such thing, nor perform act or omission with direct intent deliberately to end a human life. I will maintain the utmost respect for every human life from fertilization to natural death and reject abortion that deliberately takes a unique human life.
With purity, holiness and beneficence I will pass my life and practice my art. Except for the prudent correction of an imminent danger, I will neither treat any patient nor carry out any research on any human being without the valid informed consent of the subject or the appropriate legal protector thereof, understanding that research must have as its purpose the furtherance of the health of that individual. Into whatever patient setting I enter, I will go for the benefit of the sick and will abstain from every voluntary act of mischief or corruption and further from the seduction of any patient.
Whatever in connection with my professional practice or not in connection with it I may see or hear in the lives of my patients which ought not to be spoken abroad I will not divulge, reckoning that all such should be kept secret.
While I continue to keep this Oath unviolated may it be granted to me to enjoy life and the practice of the art and science of medicine with the blessing of the Almighty and respected by my peers and society, but should I trespass and violate this Oath, may the reverse be my lot.
The bottom line is please become an active participant in your own health and healing process, never rely solely on our so called professionals and if in double get a second opinion.
Blessings of Health, Wealth and Happiness,
Rev. Carol Lefevre
I started doing some investigation and found the articles below.
Doctors Make Me Sick
by Jane Gaffin
While zero-tolerance policies clog court dockets and jam jails with non-violent weekend recreational drug users, it’s the dangerous drug-pushing criminals who should be behind bars, namely doctors who take patients off healthy nutrients and hook them on harmful prescription drugs.
The practice is detrimental to patients and financially beneficial to the quacks. Doctors receive 50 to 80 per cent kickbacks from the giant pharmaceutical companies for prescribing specific pills, especially experimental ones.
New drugs are not tested thoroughly before the government approves their release into the marketplace. Then doctors receive extra residuals for monitoring the reactions of the human guinea pigs and sending results to the drug companies in the spirit of research. Twenty years later, the patient is diagnosed with cancer or some other chronic disease.
Often the prescriptions are government-paid. Just as often the useless financial burden falls to the patient who doesn’t qualify for prescriptions under health care programs.
No problem. Plead poverty and the doctor’s office will submit a form to health care personnel. Then the doctor can load up the patient at government expense. The patient doesn’t have to worry about payment and the doctors get rewarded with kickbacks.
It’s a neat, tidy, slick fraud.
This is an exert from an article…Thursday, April 8, 2010
“Allowances” given Ontario to pharmacists by generic drug companies are to be eliminated said the province’s health minister Deb Matthews on Wednesday.
The idea is that the annual $750 million “subsidy” is to be used to pay for services to patients but even the pharmacists concede that 70% of the money is treated as rebates to fund operations and hike profits. Ms Matthews suggests ending the practice could reduce the cost of generics by half. To compensate, the minister suggested that the government will increase dispensing fees by $1 — to a total of $150 million to offset the reduction.
Donnie Edwards, a pharmacist in Ridgeway, Ontario thinks not:
“When you take $3 out and put $1 back in… I don’t think so. These dollars were used for professional services that pharmacists do everyday, in every town in this provinces”
Research based pharmaceutical companies support the change. Russell Williams, president of Rx&D, the companies’ association, said: “As partners in the health care system, we want to work with the government and health care providers to ensure that patients have access to the most appropriate treatment… through timely access to innovative medicines and vaccines… .”

I decided to re-cap the program I followed that was so successful, getting my Hep C viral load down to ZERO in 8 weeks. This is a long blog, I know because it recaps my entire progress including what I’m doing today to wean off the medications. It lists the products I used that supported my process, the stages I used them in and the amounts.
I had geno type 1, and this was my chemical protocol:
My personal holistic therapy was a little erratic and I believe it is because my body was trying to confuse the virus, which is contrary to the belief that the best way to help the immune system destroy the HCV is to take the medications at the right time and in the right amount.
Please understand that I am a Holistic Health Practitioner, an Applied Kinesiologist and Dowser. I work with herbs, vibrational medicines and energy tools and techniques. I have the capabilities to test what I am doing. For those of you reading this blog please understand that the energy tools I used played a huge role in my healing time.

Hepatitis C Statistics
Statistics reveal that about 300 million people are infected with the hepatitis C virus worldwide. However, the number of new hepatitis C cases diagnosed each year in the US has been steadily increasing. Based on current statistics for hepatitis C, it’s estimated that 8,000 to 10,000 people die each year from chronic liver disease caused by this condition.
About 15 percent of cases end up being acute hepatitis C, in which the immune system is able to completely destroy the virus. For about 85 percent of infected people, however, the immune system is not able to completely get rid of the hepatitis C virus, and they end up having a long-term liver infection. This is called chronic hepatitis C.
How Genotype 1 Affects Hepatitis C Treatment
Genotype 1 is the most common form of HCV in the United States. It affects over 70 to 90 percent of the people in this country who have hepatitis C. It is estimated that up to 50 percent of the people with genotype 1 will have a sustained response (successful treatment).
Hepatitis C Viral Load and Treatment
The hepatitis C viral load is one measure that the healthcare provider can use to determine how successful treatment with hepatitis C medication will be. The higher the viral load, the lower the chances of a successful treatment. For example, in people with a high hepatitis C viral load, medications are successful about 40 percent of the time. For people with a low hepatitis C viral load, the success rate is around 56 percent. In addition to viral load, other factors can also influence the success of treatment. The factors include:
Within several months of beginning combination therapy (peginterferon injections , incivek, ribavirin pills), the healthcare provider will be able to tell whether or not the treatment is working. This is done using the same viral RNA blood test to determine the hepatitis C viral load. If the treatment is working, the amount of virus RNA in your blood (viral load) will have gone down. But if it’s not working, the viral load will stay the same or even increase.
My Personal Protocol
I began several months before I started the prescription medications by cleansing my system first. Depending on your lifestyle, food habits and personal health habits, you may need some or all of the cleanses I did. I cleanse regularly and still decided to go for it, thinking it would give me an advantage while on the medication. You can find this information on my blog Cleansing and Detoxing Before Hep C.
One of the most difficult things for people on hepatitis C therapy to deal with is the side effects caused by the interferon injections and pills. Side effects vary a lot from person to person. Some people will hardly notice that they are taking medications. Others will feel like they have a cold for much of the time on therapy, and sometimes they will feel even worse.
If you are on hepatitis C therapy:
So what symptoms did I have? All of them I’m sorry to say!
Low white blood cells
My white blood count dropped on the low side, however, my liver enzymes took a sharp turn down…this is a good thing in my case.
One of my biggest challenges way my sight. Both near and farsightedness have been affected by the drugs. I have just started taking the A.Vogel Sharp Vision and found that it really worked. I also added 1 tsp. of spirulina powder to my shakes, apparently it has high levels of Vitamin A in it, I have been doing this for years and to be honest it hasn’t really helped my eyesight.
Sore mouth and sore throat
This is a huge issue for me, The mucus membranes in my mouth were very sensitive. My throat was sore often but for the most part I usually only get symptomatic from 4:00-8:00pm but it is very uncomfortable.
I started using a straw if I drink lemon water and that helps a little and I cut back on the amount of spicy foods I eat. The item that has worked the best to date and that is natural and sugar free is a tea called Throat Coat…it is fabulous.
Bad taste in mouth
Yuck, this is horrible, I mean really horrible…YUK! I used an awesome product called A.Vogel Dentaforce Herbal Mouth Spray. This little bottle packs a huge punch and keeps that nasty taste in my mouth away for hours. Surprisingly it is gentle on my mouth, so no pain for my tender mucous membranes.
Feeling fatigued, Headaches and Fever
I got an energy dip every day around the same time. I get up at 5:15 every morning so it’s no wonder that my energy is low at 4:00pm, 10 hours is already a full work day for most people.
Unfortunately with the fatigue came the nausea, fever and headache and I’m totally off my game. That meant no evening yoga or socializing with friends, some days it was impossible to even make dinner! I have been taking supplements and trying different times of day to see what works and what doesn’t. So far I have come up with this formula that reduces the number of side effects and improves my dip times.
My life line at this point has been Biostrath and Vital Energy. I LOVE Biostrath…it is an awesome product and I have witnessed it helping so many of my clients over the past 20 years. When I took Biostrath with Vital Energy 8 hours after I got up, all the symptoms seem to be reduced by at least 60%. Later in my process (around week 5) I started taking them 40-50 drops of Biostrath twice daily. I must say that I also believe it is because of the Biostrath and other vitamins I am taking that I have not experienced any hair loss.
Skin rash (two thumbs up)
I had weird skin breakouts, hives and rashes. They would heal so I tried A.Vogel 7 Herbs Cream it Relieves cracked, chapped and flaky skin, diaper rash and crusts in the nostrils. This stuff is absolutely amazing. I told the Specialist about it, as a possible choice instead of creams with steroids.
Nausea and vomiting
Nausea is a common side effect of hepatitis C therapy. It can be caused by both interferon and ribavirin. This one is a challenge and I don’t want to add another chemical medicine to my regimen. I have been using fresh grated ginger in hot water and a new ginger tea called “Feeling Soothed.” A better choice for me than Gravol.
Shortness of breath
When taking interferon and ribavirin, many patients will feel a little more short of breath than they usually do. This is a common side effect of therapy. It usually happens because of the low red blood cell counts (anemia) caused by ribavirin.
Shortness of breath can be scary, so if there are times when you find it difficult to catch your breath, I had to stop going up the stairs from the beach 4 times when we went, yikes! I am back to doing my deep breathing exercises and my kundalini breathing.
I have included and/or increased the following: Vitamins A, C, D, and E
I have added 20,000 IU of Vitamin A every second day, 800 IU of Vit E every day, 2000 mg Vit D and started at 2000 mg of Vit C and increased my Vit C to 4000 mg daily. I also gave myself B12 and B6 shots weekly.
My blood work was monitored every week while you are on treatment and really dropped. This increased my fatigue levels.
Low red blood cells
Ribavirin is harmful (toxic) to red blood cells and can damage them. Interferon leads to fewer red blood cells being produced. This results in low red blood cells, or “anemia.” Unfortunately I had all these symptoms.
Low white blood cells
Interferon slows your body’s production of white blood cells. This leads to lower amounts of an important group of white blood cells called “neutrophils”, which fight many different infections. Low neutrophil counts are at risk for infections, such as pneumonia or skin infections.
Symptoms of low white blood cell count include; redness, swelling, pus formation at injury sites, cough, sputum, nasal discharge, high temperature, chills, unexplained discomfort, sore throat, sores in the mouth, bladder infection, and a white coating in the mouth, your body will be susceptible to a range of infections, skin problems, viruses, fever, gastrointestinal problems etc. Sounds yummy…for the gastrointestinal problems I use Molkosan, what a difference!
Platelets are clusters of proteins that act like bricks to form blood clots. They are produced by cells in the bone marrow. Platelet counts often drop if you are on interferon and ribavirin therapy. This can put you at a higher risk for bleeding.
Increase in the count of platelet may a little tricky than it first looked because no food is specified to increase the platelets production. It is believed that taking healthy foods and mainly organic and fresh foods will stimulate the mechanism internally and thus the platelet counts will also be increased. Flax seed is known for strengthening the immune system and also for reducing the inflammation. With this, the circulation is also improved in the body. I used and still use flax seed oil in my shakes and on my salads.
Tomatoes and cherries are for its good property of antioxidant. They are very good in vitamin and mineral contents and the production of platelet is boosted. Some of the other food items that improves the production of platelets are citrus fruits, green gram, fenugreek leaves and gooseberry.
When taking these medications you have to take them with 20 grams of fat. As a low fat eater it was a challenge, and when I was sick I couldn’t be bothered to cook much. I ate an avocado a day with one dosage and created some other good healthy fat options for my other dosage. Please see: New Foods for Surviving Hep C for some great ideas.
Where I am at Today
Week one I am off all supplements to give myself and my body a little break. I am decreasing my pharmaceutical medications and am still having withdrawal symptoms. I am drinking 3 liters of water daily, green tea and I have coconut water every other day.
Week two I will be only on interferon and a reduced dosage, 1/2 the protocol amount. I will begin my antioxidants again: 10,000 IU of Vitamin A daily, 400 IU of Vit E daily, 2000 mg Vit D daily, 2000 mg of Vit C daily and 400 mcg of Selenium daily. I have started rebuilding my intestinal flora with Bio-K and Molkosan.
I am still feeling the itches and rash so I am using the A.Vogel 7 Herbs Cream and soda bathes.
In week three I intend to go back on my Sam-e and stay on it for 3-4 months and to purchase more A.Vogel Sharp Vision and take it for 6 months as well
I have begun to reduce my fat intake slowly and am feeling more and more like eating fresh fruits and veggies, thank God.
I have not tested for herbs to detox liver as of yet, my suspicion is that I will need to purchase more Boldocynara and get back on that next month.
Kundalini is a cosmic energy that lies coiled in the Base or Root Chakra which corresponds to the base of spine, in your body. This cosmic energy is your life force, which keeps your body alive. When awakened, Kundalini begins to move upward within the pranic tube or the central channel, piercing the chakras and initiating various cleansing and clearing processes, which bring about total purification and rejuvenation of the entire being. Activate your Kundalini and Rejuvenate your Body, Mind and Soul
There are many proponents of rebounding who recommend that patients undertake about two minutes of gentle bouncing. I could only manage 10 minutes a day.
I go to an awesome place called Healing Movements.
Next week I will be posting some of the spiritual tools and exercises I did to help move the virus from my body quickly and tell you the horror story of all the mistakes that were made while under supervised treatment…I am so glad to have the tools I needed to test things for myself! Be well my friends.
In Loving Gratitude,

Sometimes we face challenges in life that traditional medical methods cannot identify nor heal with what is known or visible. If there is an imbalance in the body that has not fully manifested into physical dis-ease, it may be challenging to heal without knowing the source of the symptoms. A Medical Intuitive sees and feels beyond the physical to identify the source of the pain and supports a client in healing often before the symptoms turn into a serious physical dis-ease.
A trained professional in Bio-Energetic Analysis can read the blueprint of your aura and physical body to reveal mental, emotional, physical or spiritual ailments. The process is simple. Just place a Q-tip in your mouth first thing in the morning before brushing, foods or liquids. Leave it there for 20 seconds the place it into a clean plastic zip lock bag and mail it to them.
It seems as though root causes of illness such as parasites, toxins and plain old candida are never really addressed in allopathic medicine these days. I mean when is the last time your doctor asked you if you had mercury amalgam fillings, if you consume MSG or aspartame on a regular basis, or whether or not you have pets and have de-wormed yourself your family lately, or how much soya you consume? These are things that don’t even cross the minds of most physicians. No wonder so many of us are feeling…hmmm…just not quite right and never get the answers we are seeking.
The reading shows all the answers to these questions and more. It shows under or over activities in each of your organs, hormones and bodily functions allowing pathogens (metal poisoning, candida, viruses, msg toxicity, food allergies, anger, thought patterns…) to be detected that are preventing you from your health and fitness goals. These pathogens are often in everyday foods and products that you may be unknowingly consuming. Left untreated pathogens can become the root of many underlying and debilitating diseases such as thyroid imbalances, joint and muscle pain, Arthritis, back pain, stress, Chronic Fatigue, Fibromyalgia, memory loss, etc.
Included in your reading is your vitamin, mineral, supplement and food needs to ensure your body is balanced for optimal health and to meet your fitness goals.
Herbs, homeopathics and supplements are often recommended to cleanse, repair and rebuild your system. The awesome thing about one of these readings is that it takes the guess work out of health issues. Knowing exactly what is in our system and how to treat it is empowering. No more guessing what cleanse to do, no more endless research and confusion, no more wasted money spent on supplements that don’t work or that you didn’t really need.
To give you a simple example; this is what having lead in our bodies can do:
Behavioural symptoms in children
Children with chronic low blood lead levels who may not have obvious symptoms of lead poisoning may have learning problems and be smaller in size than children their age who do not have low to moderate levels of lead poisoning. Studies have shown that declines in IQ can even be seen in children with blood lead concentrations. And you thought you needed to medicate your child because of A.D.D., nope just give them some plumbum metalicum and get the lead out!
Where does lead come from you ask? Here are some of the culprits:
Unfortunately so many warning signs of many toxins or metals mimic other health related issues, it’s challenging to know what a client really has, that is according to our current allopathic methods anyway. This is only one example of why often traditional methods can’t detect core health issues.
In closing, remember what is written in Mathew 7.7: “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.” Perhaps 2012 is the year for those of you with health concerns to begin the journey of seeking to find the answers.
