Cancer is a scary word. No one wants to hear “you have cancer.” Yet one in three men and one in five women will develop cancer in their lifetime.
My journey into the field of nutrition started because I was searching for a way to restore my husband’s body. Two years of cancer treatments had devastated him. If you have gone through any of the “Big 3”, Chemo, Radiation, and Surgery you know what it’s like to try and recover. To try to bring back a sense of normalcy to your life. Do you ever get over it? I don’t know if you do.
For my husband Ed, it’s been thirty-five years and occasionally I’ll see him reach up and feel his lymph node on his neck (where he first discovered his cancer). “Thought I felt something” he will say. Here he is celebrating his 75th birthday with his granddaughter and cancer free for thirty-five years!!
Integrative Therapies for Cancer
In the fall of 2019, over a period of three months, I had three friends diagnosed with cancer. As I watched the fear and all-consuming trips to doctors, oncologists, and surgeons, it brought back all the memories of those years with Ed. I had a “sense” that I needed to do something in this field. People needed help realizing there are proven, integrative therapies that can be used during treatment and after treatments are over. These therapies can help the body cope, restore and rejuvenate.
I made a commitment to myself to create a Cancer Recovery Program This program will be released in the summer of 2019. Since that time I have immersed myself in studying alternative and integrative therapies. Therapies that can help in the co-management of cancer. Wow! this has been a real eye-opener and education It has also been inspiring, to hear the stories of lives that were given up on by Western medicine, but now are cancer free and thriving!
I want to ignite hope for those just diagnosed with cancer. Ignite hope for those in the middle of, or coming out the other side of the cancer journey. There is solid, scientific research behind these integrative therapies. They truly give you back your hope and power to live beyond “waiting, watching and worrying.” They empower you to be the “Boss” over cancer!
The Truth about Cancer
One of the documentaries that I watched over three years ago was “The Truth About Cancer.” Ty Bolinger watched seven of his family members die of cancer over a decade. He set out on a mission to discover what was available besides the “Big 3”, and boy did he find out some amazing things! He has since gone on to do two more documentaries. The third one is coming out this week. Sign up and watch it (on your computer). Share this Link with friends and family. Let’s spread the word!
Cancer research is important and should, of course, go on. But let’s not kid ourselves that it’s been cost-effective because it hasn’t. Since President Nixon declared the War on Cancer in 1971, we’ve dumped $500 BILLION dollars into research and the cancer death rate has barely budged.
We are seeing an “awakening” and a “questioning” about the “Big3.” In the next decade, we will see more and more people turning to integrative therapies without fear that their “doctor won’t like it.” I’m working with two cancer patients right now who have chosen traditional AND integrative therapies during their journey. They tell me “I feel like I have some power and control and I’m not just a number in the system.”
Cancer Recovery Program
As I work on my Cancer Recovery Program I am almost brought to tears. There is so much good stuff to share!! I can’t wait to get this information into the hands of those who have been on this journey. To watch their lives be transformed and empowered as they come out the other side with hope!
Be blessed my friends and thankful for the gift of health…
