Surgery Without Pain


A wrong diagnosis can be deadly.

Chuck and Marilyn Brockwell in Grimsby, Ontario, know this from experience. After noticing a lump on his neck, Marilyn and Chuck visited their family doctor, who diagnosed it as a carbuncle - a skin infection that often involves a group of hair follicles. But the lump kept growing.

Five years previously, Chuck had a heart attack. He had to regularly visit his heart doctor. In a way, this proved to be fortunate because when the heart specialist saw the lump, he gave them the reference Chuck needed to see a highly regarded plastic surgeon, who determined that the lump was not an infection.

Chuck had cancer.

During the five weeks before the scheduled surgery on December 30, 2010, Marilyn gave Chuck her personal recommendation for servings of the Garden Trio® daily - every hour from eight o'clock in the morning until eight at night:

  • 1 tbsp. of BarleyLife® 
  • ½ tsp. of Just Carrots® 
  • ¼ tsp. of RediBeets®

The surgeon had warned that Chuck would experience incredible pain following the surgery, which involved removing the cancerous lump and taking a skin graft from his leg to attach to his neck.

On the day of the surgery, the surgeon wrote out a prescription for Marilyn to get for her husband. "But I never got the pain medication. It was so strong and addictive," said Marilyn. "After the surgery, Chuck was alert and he felt no pain whatsoever. The nurses could not believe it."

Two weeks after surgery, the Brockwells had a follow-up visit to the plastic surgeon, who asked them about the pain. "When we told him that there was no pain at all, he was lost for words," said Marilyn. "We have shared this story with a lot of people."

Chuck's experience is truly remarkable because the pain from a skin graft is usually unbearable without pain medication. Marilyn added, "I truly believe that the Garden Trio made the difference, and I am thankful for BarleyLife, Just Carrots and RediBeets." - Chuck and Marilyn Brockwell, Grimsby, Ontario
