“The diagnosis of my wife’s breast cancer, based on the tests carried out at the Himalayan Hospital, struck us like a thunderbolt, on the 22nd of June 2011. My daughter and I could not believe that such a disease could afflict my wife. Getting back home, we collected ourselves and started praying and researching on the internet, on how we could meet this challenge. Friends and relatives could only give sympathy. During the ensuing week, in my internet surfing, I came across a blog at Elyn Jacob’s Blogsite, the end of which said,” Information is power and it has never been more important to be informed and knowledgeable about your medical care. My goal is to get this information to women and to empower them to make choices that fit their own individual needs.”
It dawned in my consciousness that I should write to this lady for advice, sending her my wife’s test reports. The warm hearted response was immediate; and one mail led to another with regularity, everyday. Elyn spelled out the latest knowledge on the subject blending it with her own personal experience and sincere advice. In this traumatic time, till and after the mastectomy, on the 19th of July 2011, it was Elyn who held our hands and walked us through, helping us make the correct decisions. I will remain indebted to Elyn for the rest of my life. I have found in her, a sincere friend, a mentor and a coach armed with profound knowledge on the subject- a rare combination in a good human being. I am reassured, that, even in this lonesome journey ahead, where we have opted for the alternate therapies of Quigong, diaphragmatic breathing, and diet and lifestyle changes , Elyn will always be there. All of us wish Elyn success in her Journey to empower others to get over their difficult times, by making the right choices, after the diagnosis.” Subodh and Renu Abbhi September 21, 2011
“Elyn worked with my caregiver who was diagnosed with colon cancer and provided invaluable guidance – including researching and interviewing doctors to find the best possible care, counseling on what to expect from initial tests to surgery to chemo, advising on nutrition and support programs. Elyn brought a combination of expertise, relentless advocacy and compassion at a critical time, and has made a huge positive impact.” Lisa Donohoe March 24, 2011
“In December, I was given the devastating news that I had been diagnosed with breast cancer. At the suggestion of the head of school of my sons’ school, I contacted Ms. Jacobs who is herself a breast cancer survivor.
From the moment I reached out to Elyn, she afforded me a comfort and compassion that made a very difficult situation so much easier. Elyn was with me for all of my doctor appointments, took notes, and asked the important questions that I would have never thought to ask. Elyn provided clarity to what I did not understand and was an objective voice of reason during a difficult and trying time.
Elyn listened to all of my worries and concerns, and offered me crucial advice during a great time of need. Her unwavering support is more than I could ever imagine or expected from anyone, let alone someone that I barely even knew before my diagnosis. Not only was Elyn physically and emotionally there for all of my appointments, she was also the one that took care of any problem at any time. Elyn was the one who organized the food deliveries throughout my recovery (a practicality that never would have occurred to me). This is just one example of the kindness and thoughtfulness that Elyn provided throughout my recovery.”

“I am blessed to have connected with you. Thank you for all the encouragement and information you provide. You have made a difference in my healing. You are an angel.” Tina D. July 13th, 2013
“Meeting Elyn was extremely helpful from so many points of view. She is tonic, extremely informed and with a great heart. She is a great listener, but more than all, the expert friend. I live in Romania and talking to Elyn was something that I am so grateful for. She explained about supplements, about lymphedema, and about taking control of my own health. After I talked to Elyn via Skype the mailman brought “Radical Remission” – I remember telling her that it is amazing to have met someone from the book! I wish I had someone just like her here in Romania. I am grateful for the internet and for being able to learn from her experience. Doctors and other healing practitioners may or may not understand what a cancer patient is dealing with, but a former cancer patient sure does. And if that former cancer patient is as amazing as Elyn is, then you have been blessed to have met her. As I was. Cancer is the ultimate symptom, cancer needs to be understood. Your body, mind and spirit need you to be there for yourself. “Have faith, leave beyond fear, imagine yourself walking on the beach in your 80s” – that’s what Elyn told me to 🙂 Thank you, Elyn, God bless you for blessing us.” Cosmina Grigore, 28 years old, Bucharest, Romania – breast cancer, radical mastectomy. June 10th, 2014
“Thank you so very much for everything! I really enjoyed meeting with you in person. You are so welcoming and made me feel at ease right away and I had no idea I was with you for almost two hours!!! But that goes to show you how good I felt in your presence. I felt I could tell you anything. That was great! I am just in awe with this experience with you. I would highly recommend you to anyone in my situation. All I can say is thank you thank you and thank you. I look forward to working with you as I move forward in my healing journey and I truly feel blessed that I found you”. Judy P, November 7th, 2015
“I want to thank you for the session today. Ever since the diagnosis of breast cancer, I have felt overwhelmed and confused and somewhat hopeless–I hate to say that. After meeting with you today and reading some of the pieces on your website, I have been able to return to a state of calm, peace and joy and laughter–I thank you for that gift!!!!” DL March 15th, 2016
“Hi Elyn, I just wanted to thank you for coaching me a year ago. Thanks to your input and information available on your website I am a year cancer free!! I did the holistic approach. I had a lumpectomy and only removed to two lymph nodes and fought with the doctors because they wanted to remove three. I’m doing great!! I am in a keto diet, have lost 30 pounds, and I’m off medications. I am doing only juicing and supplements–no radiation or tamoxifen. All tests have come back negative. I was stage 1 of cancer. I will never forget your words. “Knowledge is power”. Thank you again!!! God bless you!!” RV, Orlando, FL. August 10th, 2016
“Hi Elyn, I just wanted to share that what my lymph nodes that were enlarged have shrunk, isn’t that amazing? No, you are amazing. I don’t have enough complimentary words or phrases to express my gratitude and appreciation for what you have provided and made possible for me. I will continue with my supplements and protocol–I have such terrific energy, I love you.” Diane S. Richmond CA August 22nd, 2016
“Thank you so much for today — I appreciate the extra time you spent with me. I have learned quite a bit from you and am excited to put a new protocol in place. I enjoyed reading the detox document and am curious to see what you pull for me to use. Meeting you today has been a relief and joy to find a way to naturally reduce the cancer cells to an inconsequential amount, appropriately deal with leaky gut, Candida and to learn a mind body technique. You are truly amazing. I admire how you have been your own advocate in beating cancer and started a business to be a guide for those who face the challenge of cancer. I Look forward to hearing from you and seeing you again”. Anita C, NYC October 11th, 2016
“Thank you so much Elyn. Over the weekend I will go over everything you sent me and put things in order. Really appreciate you sharing your extensive knowledge. You are a great asset to the world.” George C. NYC, October 13th, 2016
“Hi Elyn. This is a huge thank you from me to you!!! Everything went well.
So, happy it did!!! The pathology report came back like a real-life miracle!!! There was no cancer inside the tumor with the exception of a minute drop that was not considered at all. Not even stage 0. So, I did not qualify for radiation nor chemo, so no pressure!!! I was so happy!!! It was a true miracle for me and the doctors!!! But I have so much to be grateful for and you helped me so much. I will never forget all that you did Elyn. I am so grateful to you. Thank you so much.” Judy P, January 10th, 2017
“It was a pleasure speaking with you! I can’t express how excited I am to have finally spoken to someone who is so knowledgeable and looks for the underlying cause, not just the treatment. I am looking forward to staying on the right road to remaining healthy for life.” Vivian C, March 15th, 2017
