Lynsey Bennett has shared an update from Germany after she returned there for further cancer treatment.

Taking to social media, the Cervical Check campaigner said she was on day three of her five day treatment.

“Full body hyperthermia today, the treatment that needs the most deep breaths in and out to stay in it for the 2 hours,” she said, sharing a picture from her hospital bed.

“Over the moon. My scan results, we’re good once again the path I am taking is one that truly works for me. I just smile now when I think of it and feel safe in the belief of what I do.”

“I have always said I work better with natural things and sure enough my sensitivity test came back with 12 natural compounds 10 of which were mostly in the 70% and 80% ranges of being sensitive to help me…Anything over 60% would be amazing to try so seeing 75 and 85 was a dream,” she added.

“And so it’s opened many more treatments to try here. And this week is intense.”

Lynsey said she would be allowed bring her treatment back to Ireland if she had a nurse to set up her IV.

“These are treatments I would be allowed bring home if I had someone to help me get access to the vein,” she explained.

“I knew had to ask the hospital at home for help even though I knew in my gut what answer would be when I asked before I came back here, asking about helping me with infusions I get here:”

“‘We can only infuse approved chemotherapies here due to Hospital insurance. We do not have the ability to infuse vitamins, supplements, or other complementary cancer therapies.’”

“And I respect their hands are tied, but who’s aren’t? This is what I need to find out,” she asked.

“I need more than the amazing vit c and curcumin that’s now available in infusion places. I need someone available to put the different natural infusions that are tailored to my results. That I can bring home and have sent over to me. I need someone who can administer them,” she said.

“It’s back to the drawing board? Who do I speak to then? Who has the power? Would Ireland leaders care? Have I proven enough the past 17months, that this line of alternative treatment works for me?”

“The funds for Germany will be gone and what does one do then? And I asked all these questions in a honestly respectful way,” she said.

“Centre of holistic excellence please Germany is an EU country does that mean there’s a chance in Ireland that we can have the same access to give us all a chance when other routes are exhausted?”

“With much love, belief and healing, happy Wednesday beautiful world.”

The mother of two recently spent time at the clinic for treatment and returned home at the beginning of March.
