Connah Broom

Connah Broom, of Denbighshire, Wales, was just four years old when he was diagnosed with neuroblastoma in 2006. He had been suffering from strange symptoms that included unexplained screaming and drenching sweats in the middle of the night.  Subsequent testing confirmed the presence the cancer.


Connah Broom, of Denbighshire, Wales, was just four years old when he was diagnosed with neuroblastoma in 2006. He had been suffering from strange symptoms that included unexplained screaming and drenching sweats in the middle of the night.  Subsequent testing confirmed the presence the cancer.


Neuroblastoma is a cancer of the nervous system that can spread throughout the entire body.  It accounts for 10% of all cancers that are diagnosed in children, with approximately 700 children being diagnosed in the United States every year, and 100 in the United Kingdom.

Doctors found 11 tumors stretching from Connah’s neck down through his chest area (right next to his heart), into his stomach close to several major organs (including the kidney and intestines), and continuing down into his left leg.   He was stage 4 at the time of diagnosis and not expected to live past the age of five.

Connah had chemotherapy for seven months but it did not improve his condition and doctors said that surgery and radiation would not be effective for him either.  The family was given the option of using an experimental drug called Tapotecan, but they were told it could also damage his kidneys and heart.  Doctors said that he had a 50/50 chance of surviving the treatment, and they  couldn’t give statistics on whether it would be helpful for the cancer or not.  Connah was living with his grandparents at the time and they immediately began searching for alternatives to help him.

Connah’s diet and supplement protocol:

  • To begin feeding him an organic diet based on whole foods that are eaten in their natural form. You can read more about an anti-cancer diet with this link.
  • He also began taking a variety of supplements and herbals.
  • Having him drink filtered water to reduce his exposure to the harmful toxins that are commonly found in drinking water. Your body needs a minimum of 50 ounces of water per 100 pounds of body weight per day in order to flush toxins out of the body and to stay well hydrated. Consider purchasing a water filtration system that will remove fluoride, chlorine, and other chemicals and metals that are found in municipal water supplies. A simple carbon filtration system will only remove the chlorine. You can find products online that will remove the harmful elements and leave the beneficial minerals intact.
  • Connah’s grandmother says, “Once we did these things, Connah stopped becoming ill.”

Reiki Therapy

The next alternative treatment that the Broom’s employed was Reiki Therapy which is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing.  It is administered by “laying of the hands” and is based on the ideas than an unseen life force energy flows  through us and is accessible to all.  If one’s life force energy is low, then we are more likely to become sick or feel stress.  This therapy is said to activate the natural healing processes of the patient’s body and works to restore the physical and emotional well-being of the patient.  People have most often use Reiki as a relaxation technique and to assist with pain relief.  For his therapy, Connah was visited by a Reiki Master who volunteered to come to his home on a weekly basis.

Sauna Detox Therapy

Connah also was given daily sauna treatments that allowed his body to sweat out the toxins that had built up in his system.   Although the kidneys are considered to be the pillar of the detoxification system, intense sweating from a sauna can help to rid the body of about one-third of the toxic material that your kidneys would normally have to filter from your bloodstream.

Multiple studies have shown that saunas are effective in removing solvents, organic chemicals, PCBs, pharmaceuticals, and heavy metal toxins from the body.  The high temperatures of saunas can also give your immune system a boost by increasing the number of white blood cells that fight infections by as much as 58%.  Your T cells (which are the cancer killer cells)  and antibodies can increase by as much as 2,000%.  Additionally, many microbes can not survive in a heated environment so many of them die off with exposure to the heat. Connah’s grandparents bought a Portable Sauna System that could be used in the comfort of his own home.

Photodynamic Therapy

In 2007, his grandparents learned about a clinic in Mexico offering a treatment called photodynamic therapy (PDT), which uses a laser or another type of light source that is combined with a photosensitive chlorophyll extract.  The patients swallows a chlorophyll agent and a period of time passes which gives the agent some time to collect in the cancerous cells. Connah was then placed under six full-spectrum lights which simulates the sun’s natural light.  This ‘activates’ the algae extract to create a powerful oxidant effect which has the ability to kill cancer cells.

This therapy has been approved in the UK and Mexico to treat some forms of skin cancer. Connah underwent an intensive two-week course of this therapy in Mexico and his family firmly believes that it was responsible for destroying 10 of the 11 tumors.

Following their trip to Mexico, Connah’s grandfather built his own version of the light therapy box in their basement so they could repeat the therapy in the comfort of their home. They also imported the algae extract from Russia. You can read more about this therapy at the bottom of the post.
