I watched documentaries, researched online, and talked with other cancer patients. The therapy uses insulin, and takes advantage of the powerful, cell-killing effects of ordinary chemotherapy drugs used in very low doses. The part that interested me in IPT was that I would be getting the chemo drugs, but the drugs would target the cancer cells in a way that was different from traditional chemotherapy.

I also received high doses of IV vitamin C. Studies have shown that high doses of vitamin C grams , when given intravenously, have the potential to destroy cancer cells while leaving healthy cells alone. The way I addressed the extra estrogen in my body was also non-traditional. Typically the next phase of breast cancer treatment includes the drug Tamoxifen. One of the serious side effects of that drug is blood clotting and since I had a blood clot, I didn't want to take any chances with this medication.

I am working with two different doctors to be sure my estrogen levels stay within normal limits through lifestyle and dietary changes, including supplements. Christine Egan : There are several things I hope readers take away: I want people to gain information about what happens when someone is diagnosed with Breast Cancer. When I was diagnosed I read books, but to me so many of them were scary. I wanted to tell my story packed with information that was told in a non-threatening way. I wanted to share the intimate details of what happened to me when dealt with cancer.

Another takeaway I hope people take with them is how to take a more active role in their cancer treatment. I was forced with the decision of either letting things happen to me or I could be in control of what happens to me. In the health care world, especially cancer, fear of a scary diagnosis can lead you to move ahead blindly and let others decide what is best for you; I knew that was not going to work for me. I wanted to share what simple dietary and lifestyle changes I made to keep myself cancer free.

Question: What is the first piece advice you'd give someone who has just been diagnosed with Breast Cancer?

Success! You submitted a tweet.

Christine Egan : The first thing I would tell someone is try not to be too fearful. I know how scary the diagnosis can be, but it's important to be grounded, listen and learn about the various options that are available. I was constantly reminding myself that there are always options and it is important to stay in the moment. Sometimes the thought of committing to a series of treatments can be so overwhelming.

I would tell myself, 'I am committing to treatment today, and I will need to see how I feel about it tomorrow. Interview by Brooke Hunter.
