Cancer Support During these Times

This week I have had several calls and messages of people dealing with a new diagnosis of cancer or a reoccurance.

My heart goes out to each of you as you travel this journey.  Sadness and fear are part of the experience and a natural part of being human.  Feel the emotions and know you are never alone.  Know that there is always hope.  Reach out to those who love you and ask for what you want.  This is a time to be clear on what you want.  Do you know?

Spend some time in quiet, in prayer, in meditation and write down what you really want.  Until you are clear on what these things really are, it is impossible for them to occur.  Stay present right now and listen to that voice within waiting to be heard.  It is easier for us to get lost in the activities of the day or week or year.  What could be more important right now?

Healing Blueberries

We have heard and read about the healing properties of blueberries and now here is another study that came out.  I eat blueberries in my smoothies.  This is a good food to add to your cancer support.

This is from Mike Adams Natural Health.

If you’re looking for yet another reason to eat blueberries, scientists at the University of Reading have just found one for you: Blueberry flavonoids have now been found to activate the parts of the human brain that control memory and learning.

The research was published in the journal Free Radical Biology and Medicine. It has opened new avenues of research into the ability of blueberries to prevent Alzheimer’s disease and other neurodegenerative conditions.

But don’t think you can just go out and buy “blueberry” food products at the grocery store. Most blueberry cereals, breads and snack bars are actually made with propylene glycol (antifreeze fluid), high-fructose corn syrup and artificial coloring chemicals. If you want REAL blueberries, you have to look for it on the label.

Cancer-Causing Acrylamides

This is a very interesting article.  Acrylamides are cancer causing by-products of cooking.  I didn’t know about this.  Read on to find simple ways to prevent damage to your body.

How to Protect Yourself From Cancer-Causing Acrylamides in the Foods You Love

Can you eat the foods you love occasionally without compromising your health? A new study shows that adding certain compounds to your diet can protect you from the harmful effects of acrylamides found in many of American’s favorite foods.

Acrylamides are cancer causing agents created when foods are grilled, fried, baked or roasted. They are a byproduct of cooking starchy foods at high temperatures. Acrylamides are found in the highest levels in foods that become browned in the cooking process such as french fries, potato chips, and grilled meats and vegetables that have grill marks on them. Toasted bread and cereals, and baked foods such as sweet potatoes and browned meats also contain substantial amounts, as does dried fruit.

If I had Cancer Again?

If I had Cancer Again what would I do?

I am finalizing a process and workbook of all the things I would do if I had cancer again.  So many people ask me, as a cancer survivor speaker, what I would do and now here it is. 

There are many options available for cancer support and natural treatment options, you must be aware of.  Now I am putting it all in one place.

I would love to know what is most important to you.

I healed using integrative medicine, healing body, mind and spirit.

I will continually update the workbook as I find better and better products and services.  So when you get the workbook you will automatically get all the updates.  I am committed to helping you find what heals for you.  My purpose here on this earth is to share my story and give hope and information to you.
