It was breezy cold spring morning in London, from the window it could be seen that the clouds were darkening as if preparing for the inevitable rainfall that belated the city in the last three days.

Sharon Lane an economist at one of the City’s leading investment bank, who had just buried her elder sister Chrissie two week earlier was in her house to pack the personal items of her late sister.

She closed the bedroom window for fear that the wind from outside blow away items and disrupt her activities. After about forty-five minutes of packing she sat down in the living room to talk about her late sister, her condition and how, against all odds she lived much longer than doctors had predicted.

Her sister Chrissie Webb from Enfield was diagnosed with ovarian cancer two years ago. She was immediately placed on aggressive chemotherapy and then later radiotherapy. Her sister Sharon had repeatedly tried to convince Chrissie to consider alternative cancer treatments, but refused.

Part of why she did not want to use anything outside conventional medicine was what she considered as lack of evidence on natural medicine. Eighteen months later, the cancer had spread significantly throughout her body and became very thin. She continued to refuse any natural treatments until the doctors declared that she only had weeks to live after they confirmed she has stage IV cancer and that at this point there was nothing the doctors could do. They advised her to get her house in order.

It was at this point that she decided to take some supplements only to combat the intense pain she was suffering from the tumours around her body. Her sister based on her research recommended that she takes wheatgrass.

The anti-cancer effect of wheatgrass has been proven in many scientific papers. Wheatgrass has shown to kill cancer cells safely without causing harm to the non-cancerous cells.
