Lynsey Bennett has shared her joy after spending her final day at a cancer treatment clinic in Germany.

The mother of two flew out in February to undergo further treatment for her invasive cervical cancer.

“1st day purple fluffy top, last day green grateful,” she said, sharing a picture of herself on her first day at the clinic and on her final day there.

“What can I say other than: thank you, thank you, thank you Arcadia a family who support, show love, educate you, believe in you and your health and living life. I love you, my little haven of peace.”

“The universe has had my back with this journey and the decision to go with my gut and looking at my body medically holistically aka WHOLE BODY.”

“Not just trying to attack the problem aka cancer, it’s looking at my entire make up, recharge myself,” she said.

“Mind, Body and Spirit and taking a look at the full picture to see what isn’t working to let my immune system let cancer grow…”

“I’ve been told that we all have cancer cells floating around our body every day and it’s only in the right terrain (aka the unhealthy one with enough factors) that cancer starts to stick and not be eliminated from my body,” she said.

“Which makes perfect sense to me, because the second I started to change my ways over a year ago (after 4 years of being told to eat and do what you want makes no difference).”

“Suddenly news that in months this would take over my body was brought to a halt for an entire year and it was only when I went back to trying harsh things that it started again as harsh treatment affected my immune system.”

The CervicalCheck campaigner said that while other people may choose a harsher treatment for cancer, that path is not for her.

“I truly hope that we find a way of opening this other door to others in Ireland just unfortunately that some treatments aren’t allowed here and both conventional and holistic aren’t combined in one centre; it's not just for cancer this would benefit.”

“Ireland/Longford’s Centre of holistic excellence here we come some day.”

Earlier this week, she shared other good news about her treatment.

Alongside a photo taken while out exploring, she wrote: “I got some good news near the end of last week…”

"As well as then I did have a heavy bleed from my bowels yesterday with clots, so no blood thinners for me again for a while which am not that hugely long back doing everyday…”

“But anyway... Amazingly my tests results came back and my CA 125 tumour markers are at 25.3 whoop which anything under 35 is brilliant and normal range for a healthy person.”

“This would indicate that I am responding to all I am doing. My gratitude, mindset, energy machines and helping my immune system get boosted and everyone’s prayers and good intentions is working for me.”

The Longford native said that she’d love to see this kind of cancer treatment become available in Ireland.

“How amazing would it be to get funding to set this up at home for people with all different issues and getting to boost their immune system. Tempted to get a petition going,” she wrote.

While Lynsey will return home imminently to reunite with her two daughters, she plans to return to Germany for further treatment in April.
