What I don’t believe in is the modern diagnosis and treatment of this condition.
Cancer (and other disease) doesn’t happen overnight.
I’ve had clients come for health coaching and say, “One morning I woke up and there it was… breast cancer, colon cancer, liver cancer…”
The truth is cancer didn’t stumble upon them one fateful day. It may have been growing for many years.
John Hopkins University Hospital informs us that every person has cancer cells in their body. The mutagenic cells do not show up in lab tests until they have multiplied.
If the immune system is strong and detoxification pathways are working, many cancer cells are naturally kept in check. The body is beautifully self-protective that way. I will go one step further and say that the body, using its infinite wisdom, herds cancerous cells into a safely contained area (a tumor) so it doesn’t affect the functioning of the rest of the body.
Modern medical treatment detects a tumor, attacks the body, and cuts out not only diseased cells, but oftentimes, lymph nodes as well. That, to me, is just plain crazy!
The lymphatic system is the body’s protector. It transports immune cells that safeguard the body against viruses, bacteria and other adversaries. Removing lymph nodes insures the disease has a greater chance of survival.
To add insult to injury, the body is then pumped with poisonous chemotherapy and radiated. When the body is overloaded with the toxic burden of these two hazardous therapies the immune system is compromised or destroyed, further weakening the body.
For those that have survived these traumatic treatments and lived to tell the tale, congratulations. Your body is strong! Many others have not been as fortunate.
Cancer cells are mutagenic cells that refuse to die. One of the questions we need to ask is, “why are these cells are refusing to die?” And, there could be many reasons.
- Eating food that contains chemical preservatives. Preservatives stop the “breakdown” process of food. If we eat food that doesn’t “die,” energetically, that has an effect on our cells.
- What is weakening our immunity and our ability to breakdown and release cancer cells through our natural detoxification processes?
- Is there pesticides and other toxic substances in the food we are eating that is disrupting the endocrine system?
- Why is there stagnation in a particular part of the body where the cancer is thriving? Is it a physical, emotional or spiritual blockage?
- Does an idea or thought live inside you that refuses to die? Anger, victimization, prolonged sadness, hopelessness…?
THE BIG C
I’m not snarky enough to think disease won’t manifest in my body, it does and it has. And, when it does, I work with my body not against it; I give my body the tools and support it needs to stop or reverse disease’s progression. Naturally healing my thyroid was proof enough for me, but new and potentially bigger diseases showed up as well.
In 2009 I experienced a major symptom – a dull ache that emanated from my breast and radiated down my left arm. I didn’t know what it was, but after two months of discomfort, I discovered a hard lump the size of my pinky-tip. My mother found her breast cancer the exact same way, and at the same age – she was 43 at the time of her breast cancer (that story here).
My boyfriend (now husband), Pablo, urged me to get the lump checked by a doctor. Knowing my mother died from breast cancer he was worried.
He said, “Babe, I know you’re all crunchy granola and stuff, but this is a lump. A real lump in your breast! You have got to get that checked out.”
I said, “I understand your fear, and I’m scared, too. But, I don’t believe in the modern medical treatment of cancer. Even if my lump is cancerous, I wouldn’t subject my body to radiation or chemotherapy.”
Immediately, I re-adjusted my diet and lifestyle. Even though I was only using honey and maple syrup as sweeteners, they are still sugar and, in excess, can impair immunity. So, I tidied up my diet, and incorporated a new daily healing meditation and visualization into my routine.
Every morning in my meditation I visualized the lump. I imagined that it looked like a hard silver pinball. I saw it circling around and around my body, like a gumball being released from an old-fashioned gumball machine. When it got to the bottom of my body it popped out of my pooper and I imagined flushing it down the toilet. I did this every day for five weeks.
The first week, I thought I noticed a decrease in size. I had my trusty companion, Pablo, check it out.
He said, “I think it’s the same size. But, I’m not a doctor. I don’t think you should mess around with this thing. What if it grows?”
“Yes, it could grow. That’s a possibility. Patience, honey. Patience and persistence are the keys to healing.”
At the end of the second week Pablo checked it again. This time he said, “Yeah, maybe it’s getting smaller, but I can’t really tell.”
The third week, Pablo looked at me wide-eyed and said, “Wow! It is definitely getting smaller.” He grinned slyly, “And, I’d be happy to continue checking this for you. Anytime you need me to squeeze your boobs, I’m on it!”
By the fifth week my lump was the size of a pinhead. I visualized it popping out from the side of my breast. But, instead of circling around my body and exiting out my pooper and into the toilet, it simply popped straight out of my breast and dissolved into dust particles in the air. After my meditation I knew that lump, whatever it was, was gone.
I believe disease can give us amazing insight about ourself and our journey on this planet.
