As a cancer survivor, I have firsthand experience in healing from stage 4 skin cancer using body-mind-spirit interconnection.
“We are more than our physical body. We must heal all parts of our being: our body, mind, emotions, and spirit. I knew I had to address my body, mind, and emotions to be well and whole and heal from Stage 4 cancer.”
I used natural cancer treatments including programs of alternative and complementary medicine as well as integrative medicine (combinations of conventional physical medicine and alternative therapies). Now I share what I learned with others as a cancer survivor speaker.
One of the most important insights that I gained on the road to becoming a nearly miraculous cancer survivor is that negative feelings can in time have a direct effect on the body. “Negative energy can be any experience, feeling, emotion, relationship, or thought. When we identify with the negative energy and carry it with us and relive it and react to it over and over, it will affect our health…When your cells are not doing what they are supposed to…your body starts to break down and you [have] Dis-ease.”
Can food affect our survival from cancer? Can food be a predictor of our chances of getting cancer.
There is more and more research available that states we are deficient in certain vitamins and minerals. The data over time will help all of us know for sure what areas we need to seriously look at and change our habits.
One such area is our omega 3’s. It has been shown that since the changes in our fats in our diets after 1945, we have seen increases in cancer. They now know that the balance between omega 6 and omega 3 is out of whack. Wth Animals fed on grasses, we were getting omega 3’s. Then the change to soy and corn fed animals with see an increase in omega 6 and a deficiency in omega 3.
Now some doctors will recommend increasing with foods or supplements omega 3.
Now I have heard 2 times in 3 days the same message. This is a message for all of us to take notice.
Does vitamin D deficiency contribute to cancer?
Now most medical doctors feel safe recommending vitamin D as a supplement because of the research data showing we are deficient in it. They believe this is one of the vitamin and minerals that we are fairly certain are safe for anyone.
They are seeing a link in this deficiency to some cancers. Here is an excerpt from a news report this week.
“This study found that vitamin D deficiency is very common among women with breast cancer, and it suggests that vitamin D deficiency is linked to poorer outcomes in these women,” said Nancy Davidson, director of the breast cancer program at the Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center and president of the American Society of Clinical Oncology.
We all have a gremlin sitting on our shoulder. It is that little voice chattering all the time. It is that voice creating all the drama in your life. It is that voice
- telling you all the things you did wrong,
- telling you all the bad traits about yourself,
- telling you you are not good enough,
- telling you to go ahead and take another drink,
- telling you to abuse yourself or another,
- telling you you are justified in your anger,
- telling you to try those drugs again,
- telling you to eat some more………………………………
All the pain in our lives seems to be caused by this little gremlin………………………..
Who is the gremlin any way? Is it YOU?
When you are so sick and tired of listening to the gremlin and you can’t take another minute of it and you can’t stand to live with it any more, you can decide to divorce it.

Cancer is such a dreaded disease,
God take it away would you please.
You hear that word and your heart just drops,
The Gremlin is here, on your shoulder he plopps.
He whispers in your ear all that can go wrong,
Your mind races back and forth like a frantic ping pong
You try and erase his voice once and for all,
But when you dont feel good he makes his call.
You know that it can go one way or another,
You hang on to everyone husband, sisters and brothers.
Just remember that he is not for real,
And as long as you beleave, your Faith he can not steal
Gratitude, appreciation, or thankfulness is a positive emotion or attitude in acknowledgment of a benefit that one has received or will receive.
Dr. Demartini says,
“I count my blessings daily.
My life is a constant stream of blessings.
The more I am grateful, the more I have to be grateful for.
I am blessed and my blessings are infinite.
Everything is a gift. Thank you.”
Gratitude is the highest vibration on the Emotional Guidance Scale
Therefore when we are feeling the worse gratitude is the only place to be.
Every day write down five things you are grateful for and it will change your life.
This is an easy Cancer support tool.
Very important news alert I had to share.
As a cancer survivor speaker, I share my story of healing through natural methods. The article is about an attack on natural cures for cancer.
Beware, the author of the following article is quite passionate and his opinion can be attacking and negative which I don’t believe is the most effective approach, but read the facts.
I know some of the facts to be true, because I have lived them!! I have experienced it, seen it, heard it and heard many other similar stories. Take what feels good to you. It is my responsibility to share what I know for sure through my own experience and other information and data revealed to the world.
You are special. No one in this world is just like you. You came here to share your gifts and talents. Don’t shrink. Don’t make yourself small. Be the YOU that you are meant to be. BE SPECIAL!
My friend Ray sent me this.
I reckon this should probably be taped
to every ones bathroom mirror
where we could read it every day.
You also may not realize it,
but it’s 100% true.
1 There are at least two people in this world
that you would die for.
2. At least 15 people in this world
love you in some way.
3. The only reason anyone would ever hate you
is because they want to be just like you.
4. A smile from you can bring happiness to anyone,
even if they don’t like you.
5. Every night, SOMEONE thinks about you
before they go to sleep..
Through my cancer survivor journey, I have intuitively known (like all of you) certain things I ate or drank or used were not good for me. Many times I did not want to give up a pleasure or a convenience. When is the time we are willing to stop and take notice and change? Is it when we are sick or our child or grandchild is sick or dying?

Research Links Plastics Containing Bisphenol A to Heart Disease and Diabetes
by Sherry Baker (see all articles by this author)
If you live in the U.S. and eat any packaged foods at all, you are probably also consuming the chemical bisphenol A, or BPA. Now, for the first time, scientists have made a startling discovery about the chemical that could help explain the epidemic of heart disease and diabetes in this country.
