Powerlifting champion, 76, defies odds to set world record

A KINGSWINFORD based champion powerlifter who survived devastating injuries in a road crash in Germany four years ago continues to defy the odds and has set a new world record in her sport.

Nutritionist Pat Reeves, who follows a plant-based diet of mostly raw food, has been power lifting since 1983 and has set records galore in the sport and refereed all over the world.

But in September 2018 she was seriously injured in a high-speed crash on Germany’s autobahn.

The horrific collision, which killed her driver and the driver of the oncoming vehicle, left her with crushed lungs which has resulted in pulmonary fibrosis and she says she was given just three months to live in June 2019.

But pint-sized Pat has cheated death twice before.

She has survived, and thrived for many years, following two terminal cancer diagnoses…the first in 1982 due to a brain tumour and the second in 1994 due to osteosarcoma (bone cancer)…and in 2008 she published a book entitled A Living Miracle, detailing how she applied her knowledge of nutrition, exercise, naturopathy and healthy living to try to improve her prognosis and extend her life expectancy.

Now, despite her injuries which have changed her life considerably, she has managed to break not just one record but three in her beloved sport of powerlifting.

Grandmother-of-two Pat, of Bromley Lane, has continued to train, despite her condition which means she requires supplemental oxygen daily, and her schedule includes deadlifting three times a week and bench work four times a week.

She said: “I can really only do single repetition now. If I was to do double or treble I’d need oxygen.”

But she has her own gym at home and her determination has paid off and on March 26 she lifted a record-breaking 60.5kg at the British Drug Free Powerlifting Association national singles event at Motive8 gym, King's Lynn.

Although she admits it’s “nowhere near” the 135kg she used to deadlift in her heyday, the feat meant she set a new national, European and world record for her weight and age classes (U50.5 / over 75s).

She said she still enjoys the sport and is determined to keep participating for as long as she possibly can. She also organises competitive events for the BDFPA – the most recent of which was the West Midlands divisional championships at Black Country Barbell in Stourbridge in January, with a further event planned for later this year.

Pat is believed to be the oldest competitor in the association at 76, going on 77.

The 2018 car crash had a devastating impact on her at a time when she was in great shape and she said: “Before the accident I was absolutely wonderful.”

She said she had been working at a hospital in Detroit, USA, and at different clinics in Germany - helping cancer patients with nutritional protocols. She had also been jet-setting around the world refereeing powerlifting events.

She added: “My life has changed considerably and it took me a long time to come to terms with it but there’s a lot I can do.”

She hopes to be back in Buckinghamshire later this year for another event and is hoping to compete at a European event in September.

  London Vegfest PAT REEVES - Cancer survivor & Powerlifter

At the time of writing this I am recovering from a bad fall nine weeks ago, breaking my dominant thumb and wrist, sadly having to miss increasing my World dead-lift record in Antwerp on 4th June, 2017. Hopefully I can regain sufficient fitness to be successful in Ukraine mid-September.

Now approaching seventy-two - where do these years go?! - I am Gen Sec on behalf of British Drug free Power-lifting Association, National and Divisional event promoter, holding the current World Dead-lift and Bench-press records in my age and bodyweight category, International referee and coach, travelling world-wide.

Within my role as practitioner in the field of Nutritional and Functional medicine, whilst based in the West Midlands, I am now also working from Detroit, USA and Germany. Almost thirty years experience in returning thousands of patients to optimal health, I am enthralled to still be living an amazing life for far longer than anyone expected, given my own well-documented genetic cancer challenge. I am consulted to assist with all manner of compromised health problems, from the most serious to those that are simply very annoying and decrease the quality of life for those suffering. I enjoy a very busy and super-rewarding life!

This is my fifty-first year using a plant-based regime with the last twenty-five mainly consuming living foods. This has totally transformed my serious situation and radically changed the earlier predicted outcome, enabling me to defeat an intractable cancer situation.

My updated book 'A Living Miracle' (available via this website) now confers information relative to the most valuable supplementation which has dramatically assisted a return-to-health for my patients worldwide.

My book also covers all aspects of how to make a living food protocol become second nature and as easy as switching on an oven! I have featured one hundred simple recipes developed and used since I discovered this amazing life-extending food preparation method.

  As General Secretary of the BDFPA, Pat hosted both the National Singles and National Full Power, respectively on 28th February and 28th/29th March, 2015. In addition BDFPA were sanctioned to host World Single event during June, 2015 in Telford, and everyone was made welcome!  

  During the last six months of 2012, Pat has extensively revised and greatly added to her inspirational book 'A Living Miracle'. This has just undergone a second printing and is now availaible via this website, or on Amazon, etc.

The Early Years

The following was published in a magazine seventeen years ago

November, 2001

Currently I am aged 56, with a familial genetic implication of cancer, ascertained in 1975. Between 1975 and 1984 - when I was diagnosed with a brain tumour, I spent considerable time and endeavour researching what the future could hold for me. I achieved a high level of fitness through competitive swimming, triathlons, marathon running, body building and subsequently power-lifting - which captured my heart in the late eighties and has seen me through many a trauma. I have held the British Masters' champion title for many years and was successful at the Worlds' and the European Power-lifting Championships. However, after a nervous breakdown in the eighties over an eventual divorce, a brain tumour was diagnosed. This consolidated my efforts to fight back with every ounce of energy I had. Conventionally speaking, I had time to seek other options. I declined orthodox treatment, favouring a natural approach and began a modified Gerson therapy and ate along the lines of the Bristol Cancer Centre. Already vegan for over many years, this was not difficult. My studies, research and application of nutritional therapy, as I understood it then, were so successful, that I eventually became a qualified practitioner.

I partnered a brilliant Canadian immunologist. With his untiring research and my total focus on nutrition to support my immune system, the tumour shrank and a year later, no further evidence was found. In the late eighties, during my study years, I urged my conventional medics to check out osteoporosis, as I had a strong feeling I was heading in this direction. My fears were ignored for a considerable time, but eventually a bone density scan showed significant deterioration. Despite dire warnings of 'probably I had twelve months' without drug treatment, I felt sufficiently confident to resolve this situation. Although the medics were highly doubtful of a successful outcome, subsequent bone-scans showed indisputable evidence of bone-regeneration. This is the period when I 'discovered' living foods and their application, and did a total shake-up of my mineral input. I discovered my anaerobic training really impacted on my bone density in a positive way. I manipulated dietary minerals to the extent that I could heal a break in a few weeks. I now have to 'fight' for repeat bone-density scans, but my present endocrinologist is so impressed she actually refers patients to me!

This whole episode was considered a separate issue to the cancer situation. My life progressed well for a few years until 1994 when a tumour in my knee developed, again after a particularly stressful episode. Cancer now challenged the bones. Diagnosed as a rare type of Paget's disease, amputation loomed close. This cancer compromises my heart and kidney function. The connection between the osteosarcoma and my heart is an insidious one - already giving me four heart attacks. I have had to address atrioventricular problems, which at present remain controlled. Still shunning conventional treatment, except for a short spell using Dioxin, but alluding to the fact that some heart surgery may become necessary, I employed herbal medicine, under instruction, using hawthorn extract, Terminalia arjuna, Astralagus membranaceus plus high doses of ubiquinone as the most potent catalysts. My antioxidant intake escalated, vitamin C was around 16 grams at this time. I avoided the surgery.

Unfortunately further tumours in my arms became evident last year, following the fourth heart attack, the last several months have seen me exhausted with fighting back, with a prognosis of three months. I am very pleased to say that I have outlived an astonishing number of death sentences.

One of my very low moments last year was being overdosed with a form of chelation therapy, which was instigated by my American cardiologist in conjunction with a programme I agreed to with an American Cancer research centre in my efforts to establish the unknown connection between the osteosarcoma and my heart malfunction. Unfortunately, I was so sensitised that even the correct dosage could not be given and I had to withdraw. I had to use kidney dialysis for a considerable time. Subsequently I have relied upon herbs and chlorophyll to slowly remove the heavy metal toxicity, thought responsible. Supporting the immune system works on all levels. Presently I have just made it into remission. It has only been a few days since I have known that the cancer is not presently active, and I am in celebratory mode!

The objective of my treatment has always been one of supporting the immune system, which is all I ultimately have to win with. I have supported myself with a dietary dogma that excludes anything which could negatively influence my situation and have built up Living Foods into a veritable art form - foods that entirely contain their original enzyme content. I am convinced I would not be here now without embracing this modality. I have a fierce desire to win, both the disease and at my chosen sport.

Like Elaine Bruce, I conduct Living food days in the West Midlands, where patients with cancer - and other illness may avail themselves of this highly immune-enhancing lifestyle. Obviously, though intrinsically important, dietary/supplemental considerations are not a complete answer and thus I have used many other allied therapies addressing mind, body and spirit. NLP, bio-energetic-medicine, electro-magnetics, ozone therapy, meditation and spiritual healing now take high priority in my life, together with reflexology, aromatherapy and bio-feedback. In spite of a (conventionally speaking) bleak outlook with a 'no-hope' cancer, I have continually trained, competed and worked - taking only a few breaks during all this time when I simply could not function.

I remember well the early days of horrendous diagnosis, of being given no choice other than allopathic medicine, and I had to dig deeply into my reserves. There is now a lot more natural cancer care. I am presently putting thoughts together which will eventually become my first inspirational book on events over many years. This year, I have undergone several wheatgrass juice 'fasts' as total water-fasting is, at present, considered not the best option. With wheatgrass I can cleanse and optimally provide basic nutrition for my body to heal. I have successfully applied a therapeutic diet to optimally improve immune function in my relentless quest to defeat this most unconquerable of cancers. I implore readers never to give up. Embrace whatever it takes to achieve a lifestyle that balances mind, body and spirit harmoniously to achieve the result you seek. Conceive, believe and achieve.

Love, Light and Peace.
