As is the nature of building a new career while phasing out another, the consistency of both will suffer during the transition.   So it's been a while since I've been able to post anything.  That being said, I thought I would share a few personal things with you to re-launch a new inundation of posts ...Read More...

OVERDIAGNOSIS...More Common Than You'd Think... While this is directed toward thyroid cancer specifically, this is often the approach that most natural practitioners take when working with cancer patients.  With everything I have read, I personally believe that most cases have time to work through ...Read More...

Meat.  It's Still What's For Dinner (For Some) If you are currently healing from cancer (especially tumorous), or have just recently healed, animal proteins should still be kept at bay as much as possible.   While many continue on a vegetarian/vegan lifestyle after cancer, many will want to reintroduce ...Read More...

I'm so busy these days!   How often do we hear that when we check in with our friends?  Probably 9.5 out of 10 times, right?  Until cancer, I was one of the 9.5 and today I am the 0.5.   Why?   Because my life depends on it. After more than 2 years of study and research, I have yet to come across ...Read More...

Your Fired!    If only it was that easy, right?  Only in recent decades have doctors had the presumed power over patients, turning what was once reverence to one of fear today.   Fear of confrontation and questioning is quite common because no one wants to feel belittled during a health crisis, and ...Read More...

I first began working with a natural practitioner and energy healer back in 2004.  Several sessions in those early years exposed such deep truths that brought great insight to the issues that I was already aware if in addition to many more I was not.   Throughout the process, one word kept surfacing ...Read More...

Food Nighmares.   If you aren't convinced that your processed food is a culprit in your cancer or other chronic illness, perhaps the mere disgust of what is used will be enough to keep you from continuing to consume such products.  Everything from feces to mechanically separated meat (everything BUT ...Read More...

But I'm HEALTHY! That was one of my first thoughts when I received my diagnosis.  And it was also the thoughts of each doctor I worked with.  So for those of you who know me well, and my independent stubbornness, you were not surprised when the unanswered questions weren't going to cut it for me.   ...Read More...

Cancer Killers.   It is one of my favorite books when it comes to the basic essentials of understanding cancer, how to rid the body of it and help to prevent it.   The approach in this book along with other holistic healings is not only to rid the cancer, but prevent it's return.  And frankly, that ...Read More...

Healing Essential: Nutrition.  When discussing cancer, it's a topic that brings quite an array of views, onions and responses.  And that's just with the MD's! Yup, there are the educated oncologists out there who strongly recommend strict, healthy diets to help patients in their healing, while others ...Read More...

Mindset and energy are the biggest elements in healing.  My elementary study of quantum physics has only enticed my desire to know more about it, but even with minimal education, I am convinced of this!   Not only has my own experience proven this to me, but I continue to see first hand the cases around ...Read More...

There are lots of protein drinks, juices, smoothies and shakes out there with great sounding labels touting healty boosting ingredients.  Sadly, our standards for labeling allow for ample opportunity to fool us all...unless we read the labels ourselves.   Most all commercial options in this arena are ...Read More...

The strawberry... yum!!!  Most everyone's favorite part of this time of year.  The sweetest of berries are easy to get a hold of, and satisfy the sweet tooth for many.  They are consumed fresh, frozen and offered as toppings on a favorite dish or blended to sweeten those protein and veggie smoothies. ...Read More...

Today happens to be a classic example for self-care.  It's not something I would have done in years past, but now I clearly understand the warning signs for when it is needed, and unapologetically do what's necessary to keep myself from getting into a danger zone.  I've learned the hard way that being ...Read More...

While I would ideally love to see all care options be 100% natural, I am totally supportive of modern medicine to be used in emergency and acute situations.  Healing Touch (what I am currently studying) is recognized by many in the medical industry as an integrative therapy.  It's the facilitation of ...Read More...

I remember telling my husband several years ago that I had a feeling...a feeling that something big was going to happen.   There were times when it felt like a dreaded anticipation, but the dread would fade into excitement.   The anticipation would go away only to return some months later with the same ...Read More...
