Kristin Needs A Drier Climate

Hi Loved Ones,

I just finished week 3 here in Santa Rosa. California has had a very wet year and the cool, damp weather has been less than wonderful for the recovery of my lungs. We have decided to seek the sunshine and warmth of the Southwest once again. We will be returning to Arizona on Tuesday. We learned alot from Dr. Rowen and the nurses and will now take this knowledge back with us to Tucson. Dr. Vose and Dr. Cochran in Tucson now have their 10 pass ozone machine up and running, which is one of the main therapies that I have been receiving here in CA. Another benefit of the Southwest is that we are nearer to our extended community of supportive family and friends.

Please redirect any mail to my mom and dad at Huisingas, 1745 E. Knox Rd, Tempe, AZ  85284.

We will pilgrimage to the Pacific Ocean again tomorrow, as it will be the only sunshine until we leave. Here is a photo of Jon and I a few weeks ago at the ocean.

Love to you all, Kristin

Redwood trees live for 2000 years!

Hello beautiful friends, family, dear ones,

Last weekend we made it to the beach. Here are my toes in the sand.

This weekend, the weather was good as well. Jon and I had a lovely day yesterday. We drove out to Armstrong Woods State Park to visit the Coastal redwoods. We saw a redwood that is 1400 years old and 308 feet tall! It was alive in 600A.D. Jon made us a yummy picnic. It was Japanese day. Jon is on a mission to fatten me up. Last week, I had nausea every day so it was difficult to eat. BUT….the exciting news is that I got rid of sea monster (actually a roundworm) that was living in my intestines. I will spare you the details of HOW it came out because it is quite gross! Since Thursday though, when the sea monster came out, I have been able to eat more with more enthusiasm. Food sounds good and that itself is an improvement. And…parasites like roundworms suck energy from healing, so getting them out helps recovery.

This week, I am going to do some trouble-shooting with the doctor to better understand the sources of the nausea. Doc Rowen is great and checks in every day to see how I am feeling with the treatments. He listens to my thoughts about what I want to try or scale back. He orders blood tests each week to look at trends in liver, kidney and blood function. Some numbers are improved. Some are not. But it is the trend that is important. The tests in the upcoming weeks will tell us more.

We have our house here in Santa Rosa until the end of March. Dee and Harry (parents of our friend Pete) have offered to let us stay at their house after that while they are away through April 10th. How long we stay depends entirely on how I feel. I am following my intuition and assessing each day as we go. Days are still very busy.

We love you all so very much. Thank you for your unending support, love, and prayers.


An Ocean Frolic

A quick update from Santa Rosa. I have very busy days at the clinic. I usually arrive around 9am and leave between 5 and 7pm. It has been fine so far. Dr. Rowen is attentive and innovative in figuring out how to fine tune my treatments. The nurses here are fabulous and the daily IVs are going well so far. I am receiving different IV medication here than I was in Tucson. NAD to help jumpstart the energy producers in the cells. More energy equals more healing and cleanup power. Ozone directly in the blood to help kill pathogens and instigate healing via oxidation. Minerals and good fats to feed the body.  There are other therapies in addition to IVs to squeeze in there too. Magnetic pulsing on the PEMF machine, exercise with oxygen, ozone sauna, etc.

I am feeling good this week. Less pain. More energy. Easier to smile. Energy to cook and do dishes. Jon still does most of that though. Seems like these are good signs.

Last week’s Friday IV brought some intense malaise over the weekend. Combined with the rainy, cold weather, we did not make it to the ocean. Hoping for SUN this weekend. I need an ocean frolic…feet in the sand, waves crashing on shore, miles of open water to gaze at, seagulls for entertainment. The redwood forest is on the way to the ocean, which is about 45 minutes from our house. The towering trees are calling me as well.

Love to all of our people. Thank you for your beautiful prayers, visions of healing, texts, emails, support. I am so grateful for our many blessings. Love, Kristin

Goodbye Tucson, Hello Santa Rosa

Hello friends and family,
Kritin and I are very grateful for the healing progress Kristin has made here in Tucson, but she has decided that she wants to use a different doctor for a while. We like how she’s been treated by Dr.’s Chocran and Vose, here in Tucson, but there is a treatment she is seeking that they don’t yet provide. So we are flying to Santa Rosa, CA on Monday the 27th. We’re not sure how long we will be there, but we will give Dr. Rowen at least two weeks and see how things go.

The treatment that he has to offer is an ozone treatment. It is common in many places in the world and has remarkable results with many different diseases. Some blood is drawn out, infused with ozone gas, and put back in. It is another method of hyper-oxygenating the tissues and stimulating the immune system.

We are forever grateful to our hosts here in Tucson, Tony Gargano and his daughter Gina. They let us stay here in Tony’s house and all they want in return is for us to cover utilities and house cleaning. Many thanks also to our dear friend Monica Mahoney for connecting us with Gina. Angels are real and sometimes they work in teams.

Many thanks also to another team of angels in Santa Rosa. Greg and Kambria Beck-Holder and the Richardson clan have provided much assistance in finding and securing both a house to rent and a car to use while we are there. It’s hard to relate what a relief it is to have those details taken care of. Thank you soooooo much.

When we get to Santa Rosa, we will let people know where to send love letters.

Thanks to everyone for keeping us in your thoughts and prayers.

Love from Kristin and Jon

Thank you for my healing!

Gratitude is the best emotion ever! It transforms sadness, grumpiness, negativity. I am working with this every day. Visualize what you want. Believe in it. Have gratitude for what you want. Really feel it. I feel strong. I feel supported. I feel your love. I feel my arm muscles bursting out of my shirt. Thank you Raechel for creating this awesome image. Love love love, kristin

Row For Your Life

Hello beautiful people,
I am grateful today for Jon, for the sun that warmed us as we sat next to a trickling creek, for the saguaro cacti, for the walk yesterday with dad, for a relaxing and low stress weekend. Back to work tomorrow. It’s going to be a great week!

My dear friend Kate wrote this song. Last week when she visited Tucson for my birthday, she sang her song for us. I am still in tears when I listen to the recording. Kate’s song reminds me that we all have moments of rowing for our life. She speaks of rowing toward the roar, to go into the storm with courage. This is also a teaching of the bison that turn and walk into the snow storm so they can move through it more quickly. Kate’s song reminds me that we all have our plans shift. The river pokes holes in our plans. And we can heal. Thank you Kate for your insightful song. I hope you all love it too. I love you all, Kristin

Listen to the River
A song written by Kate Watters

The River she knows a lot
But she’s not gonna tell you everything, oh no she’s not
Get into your boat, grab hold of the oars
Row for your life toward the sound of that roar
There ain’t no going back now
‘cause you just left the safety of the shore.

There is beauty in this moment as it’s passing you by
Sing your songs of love to all the stars in the sky
And listen, listen to the river reply

The River, she’ll rock your boat
She’ll poke holes in all the plans you made, till you barely float
When things fall apart
The only way to begin
is sitting beside her ’til you can stand again
There ain’t no going back now
Mystery awaits you around the bend


The River, she’s been it all
A snowdrift on the mountaintop, a canyon waterfall
Even on calm water, there are whispers of change
whoever you are today, you’ll never be the same
There ain’t no going back now
Ride the waves of a timeless refrain

Vision Boards

Hello dear friends and loved ones,

Your beautiful, positive visions are feeding me. One of my birthday presents is a compilation of photos that Kim and Jocelyn hand-sewed into an unbelievably exquisite display of our shared vision for the future. A future that is loaded with joyous experiences in complete health with each of you. Thank you for taking the time to send these incredible prayers, manifested in your photos. I love the vision boards. Here is a photo of the vision boards in all of their gray ribbon and button glory.

Vision boards….The purpose of a vision board is to put images of experiences you want for your future to help keep the END GOALs in mind. Along the way, their might be bumps and pauses but having the vision of the ultimate goals helps manifest them.

We got some great news this week. I did a repeat blood test and one was for the tumor markers. The CEA marker is down in the normal range and dropped 30% in four weeks. YAY! We are still waiting on results from second marker.

I continue to feel better each day. The vitamin C, ozone, curcumin, and hyperbaric oxygen are bringing great changes and improvement. I have some new recipes to try from our new favorite nutritionist, Lauren Kanzler. Mom found her and she was the perfect person for us. Every doctor and nutritionist we speak with emphasizes that my MAIN goal is to keep my blood sugar at 80 all the time! This way the blood is balanced and the cancer cells starve.

It is Friday again!!!!!!!!!!!!! Weekends are joyous and relaxing. We will go commune with the saguaros again.

One last thank you to Tony. We are staying at Tony’s house, probably for a few more weeks (because I am feeling so much better each day with these treatments). He is an angel. Thank you Tony!
