“Out of difficulties grows miracles”- Jean De La Bruyere
Please do not judge my story by the chapter you walked in on. You know what I choose to let you in on. For a few months I have been on a new and different approach to healing. I have gone against the opinions of my doctors, who think they know what is best for my health. After many failed attempts at “new” and experimental treatment I decided to come off of chemotherapy and to heal holistically. Some have scratched their heads at my approach, so in an effort to shed some light, this video will be a look inside my day and how I am healing my body.
Every day starts with rubbing specific, essential oils on my spine and the bottom of my feet to open the lymphatic system, detox the body, and open up the kidneys. The recipe I use changes on a monthly basis to keep my body from becoming stagnant. My current recipe is made up of seven oils, some to specifically target cancer like Sacred Frankincense and Copaiba. I repeat this process in the evening as well.
If you have been following me for a while you may be familiar with my beloved Soqi Bed. I spend a half hour twice a day soaking up some infrared rays. Far infrared or FIR technology, is the “warm” energy in humans, animals and plants and is emitted in sunshine. This has been known as healing energy for centuries and is the foundation to hand healing and other practices like Reiki. The Soqi bed also incorporates passive aerobic exercise through the use of a chi machine. This movement activates circulation which drives blood through the body, forcing oxygen and nutrition throughout. The lymph system, the body’s sewage system which has no pump, is also forced to work. So just as the oils are targeting the lymphatic system, so is the chi machine.
The mind body connection is often taken for granted. The truth is, that our mind generates our reality. I have been practicing meditation for many years, but currently I am using sound healing during my meditation. Sound healing uses sounds like gongs and Tibetan singing bowls, which reduces stress and places the listener in a meditative state. The music is mathematically consistent with the universe at 432 hertz which transmits healing energy because of its pure tone.
Another thing that we have taken for granted is our food and the role that nutrition plays in how our bodies function, in disease and in healing. Our bodies function best in an alkaline state and diseases like cancer will not grow in an alkaline environment. Stress and what we have done to most of our food, with GMOs and pesticides, actually make the body acidic. Certain fruits, vegetables and botanicals help to bring the body to an alkaline state. As a part of my holistic approach to healing, I am mostly eating raw food, with most days being vegan, and always vegetarian. Eating food in its raw state preserves the nutrients and enzymes that our body needs for fuel, optimal function and to prevent and fight chronic disease. Additionally, cooking foods at high temperatures can make them carcinogenic, essentially turning them toxic. When I want a hot meal, I am sure to use gentle cooking methods like steaming.
My journey is mine to make. I understand that some may not understand why I have chosen to heal myself holistically, and that is ok. After 12 years of daily chemotherapy, literally killing every cell in my body, but still allowing the cancer to ravage me, I decided it was time to take matters into my own hands.
This decision was based on the premise that what doesn’t kill us makes us stronger. The chemotherapy nearly took my life, on more than one occasion, and I thank God that my mental tenacity and hope were stronger than the poison. As my body got weaker I continued to strengthen my mind with knowledge thru continuous research on alternative methods. I strengthened my soul with knowledge thru diving deeper into my meditation practice and placing my faith in the universe and God. Above all I am thankful to God for helping me to have the strength to fight everyday. My journey is far from over.
