Are You Under the Influence of Someone Else's Belief System?

Are You Under the Influence of Someone Else's Belief System?

Much of the world has been indoctrinated into the beliefs of allopathic medicine for a few hundred years now.

And, any type of thinking that offers ANY healing options outside of that system is immediately shot down as quackery and nonsense.

I shared a couple of old blogs about mammograms and cancer on my social media outlets and boy oh boy, did people get riled up!

Some folks called me an idiot, and others said I was completely irresponsible.

One gal came to my defense and sent me a quick email:

“The reason I am contacting you today is that I saw your facebook post on mammograms and was so excited to see it, as I was going to forward it onto as many 40-plus year olds to confirm my own statements. BUT…did you see the stirrings you generated? Your article was incomplete. It caused a negative reaction because, although you are right in your message BIG TIME… you didn’t give them options that they could use that are safe. Could you update the article and site the fact that ultrasound is a good alternative and the best alternative is actually thermography. I saw this on the documentary series, The Truth about Cancer.”

I appreciated her feedback, and she is correct. I didn’t offer any options for detecting breast cancer – because I do NOT believe that’s where the focus needs to be. For me, and what I teach people is that the focus is on prevention.

Cancer has been around for a long time. We all can have cancer cells and mutagenic cells in our body at any time.

Whether or not someone’s system becomes overrun with those rogue cells depends on a LOT of factors: diet, lifestyle, consciousness, epigenetics, environmental factors, detoxification pathways, emotional stress, and much more.

I don’t believe in using the modern treatments for cancer (radiation, chemotherapy, and mutilation), and I don’t support the fear of “detecting” cancer. I know it’s here. I know it exists. I live in the world of modern day reality.

But, instead of focusing on fearing cancer, detecting cancer and attacking cancer, my focus for myself and my clients is on keeping detoxification pathways flowing, Qi running smoothly, good diet and lifestyle, improving consciousness, getting regular bodywork (massage), exposure to fresh air, sunshine, and nature, and being involved in supportive and loving relationships.

It’s a choice.

I choose to NOT live in fear of cancer.

I believe what we put our attention on grows. What is your attention on?

One of the great things about life is that we get to choose how we want to live it and what we want to do with our body while we are inhabiting it.

I’m a BIG advocate of having the choice to use whatever you believe could work best for you. I encourage people to trust their gut instincts and intuition when it comes to caring for the health of their body.

Whether that means mammograms, thermograms, MRI’s or any other form of intervention, including alternative and preventative medicine and other natural healing methods, always use what appeals to YOU and your own common sense.

One gal said, “Sorry Andrea, this is very irresponsible. I am a health coach, was doing everything right. Had a clean bill of health from a naturopathic doctor one year and the next found a lump in my neck and had stage 4 Mantle Cell Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. Chemo and a stem cell transplant saved my life. Yes I did also incorporate more meditation and visualization like what you described. I also cut out the small amount of honey and maple syrup I was eating like you. But if I hadn’t had chemo, these small changes would not have had any affect on this type of aggressive cancer. I’m glad you were able to shrink your breast lump. But to encourage others is irresponsible for someone with your influence.”

I am so happy this gal is doing well. That’s fantastic! She made a choice that resonated with her.

But, I disagree, that I am irresponsible for sharing an alternative perspective. It is because I have “influence” that I do share other methods of healing so people know there is another potential way.

Radiation and chemotherapy is one way BUT, it’s not the ONLY way. And, most people do NOT know that.

Just as there are people that heal using modern medicine, there are many people that do NOT make it out of the radiation and chemo wards.

The same goes for alternative forms of healing. There are folks that heal using natural methods, and there are others that do not.

And, then there are folks that use a combination of both.

I am an influencer. That is why I say what I say.

We have been under the influence of a deeply flawed, one-sided, medical system for a very long time.

A system that penalizes you for caring for your own health and well-being. A system that separates mind, body and spirit. As if you can.

I believe you simply cannot separate mind, body and spirit, and this is one of the many reasons for our current health crises.

I also wholeheartedly believe that we should try everything and anything to heal our conditions. The options that I bring to the table are the alternative healing that have been suppressed and oppressed by the mainstream medicine and drug companies for many years.

The alternative healing possibilities need to heard by the masses, so they can begin to make well-informed decisions that are NOT based on fear.

For those of you that are ready to understand alternative types of healing, I welcome you to experiment with your body. And, when I say body, I’m talking about your entire body – mind/body/spirit.

  • Beautifully said Andrea!
    I am a nurse practitioner who has worked a long career in conventional medicine and I agree with you that we need to talk about all this. Everyone deserves to know that there are options to the conventional approach to cancer in order to make the decision that they feel the most comfortable with.

    • @dawn_lovisa:disqus – thank you for your work in the world. Yes, people need to know there are other options so they can make the decision they are most comfortable with. It’s time.

    I posted on facebook last week and here I am again because as a cancer surivor who has had radical surgery and chemotherapy this is a hugely sensative topic. I also happen to be doing IIN right now and planning a future in the health and wellness industry – which is how I started following you – I have thoroughly enjoyed your lectures. I think my problem lies in the belief that if you look after yourself (body, mind, soul) that you will not be one of the unlucky ones dealing with a cancer diagnosis. I just wish it were that simple – but it’s not. These days I am dealing with another tumor and resisting the recommended chemotherapy. It’s been six months and despite my following a cancer fighting diet and lifestyle it hasn’t shrunk. But it also hasn’t grown and if that continues to be the case I’m staying off the hard stuff. Options are good, each to their own and all that. The one thing I would say after my own experiences is investigate all options from the most toxic to the natural alternatives. Weigh up the consequences of each and do what feels right for you.

    • @yvettemayer:disqus that’s great advice, “weigh up the consequences of each and do what feels right for you.” We all have to do what feels best for us. I’m happy to hear you’re tumor hasn’t grown. Sending you a healing hug.

      Yvette, it’s good to hear that your tumor hasn’t grown but diet and lifestyle might not be enough. Have you looked into Mistletoe extract? It’s been know to be good for cancer treatment and it pretty standard in Europe, especially Germany.

  • Erica Hodgson

    i’m with you all the way Andrea! Love your work. Love what you stand for. Love love love your messages. Thanks for being willing to share them with the world!

    • @ericahodgson:disqus – thank you! I love you and your work, too. It seems we are in the mutual admiration society 🙂

  • Great post Andrea. Thanks for being bold and putting out another perspective.

  • Grace

    Thanks Andrea! My mom was one of those that didn’t make it out of chemo. She died not from the cancer but from her 1st and only chemo treatment. She was the so called “one in a million”. Wish I had known more back then to guide her in a different direction rather than encouraging her to go for chemo. Love your blog and all that you do! Thank you!!!!

    • @Grace – awhhh I’m sorry to hear about your mom. Sending you a hug. You made the best choice with the information you had at the time.

  • Suzanne Dupont Healy

    Excellent article Andrea and I agree 100%. We have options when it comes to cancer treatment and many people are not aware that they have choices. The Truth About Cancer documentary series was eye opening for me. Thanks again Andrea for your candid honesty.

    • @suzanneduponthealy:disqus I haven’t seen that documentary yet, but I’m going to put it on my “must watch” list. Thank you!
