It’s a wonderful thing. The feeling you get when you feel you may have made a difference. Ive said it before, but I do believe it’s the purpose of us being here together. On this planet. We all have something to give. What is your offering?
When I was working in the hospitals during my career, I was constantly helping people/patients. It’s was the job.
But it wasn’t too long before the job turned into much more for me. A part of the job I loved. Making connections with people. Helping in sometimes, I felt, the smallest ways, but that meant so much to that patient.
Soon I began to realize this world is about way more…than me! How many people do you know, that don’t even get that? I think when a person can look past their own needs, they awaken. Awaken to see beyond themselves. Seeing beyond the “stuff” everyone thinks they need to make them happy.
Ive seen countless patients so sick or even dying. People of every color and race. We are ALL THE SAME. We all have people that love us and people that will miss us one day.
I simply felt the need to make a difference. It was through my career I began to feel a deeper sense of belonging. Like I had something more to offer. My “offering”
I’m talking from the smallest gesture to going out of your way to help someone in need. Its what fires me up to find a new path for helping. The Cancer Coaching is that path for me. But it will never stop there.
Since last weeks post “Food for thought”, I have had several people asking me about the “diet” or as I say “lifestyle” I go by now to keep my mind and body strong.
Ive said it before, there’s an overwhelming amount of stuff out there on the internet. You must do your do diligence in researching the proper sites.
When I began to heal after failed chemo, I was at the library reading and photocopying info. It was all so much to take in. As well as the internet, I found lots of great info. I also found many documents on research trials from the 50’s and onward regarding sugar and cancer cells. Many of these trials were shut down, even after they had positive findings. They were concealed because of the negative financial impact it would have on health care and pharmaceutical companies.
Slowly we are all waking up. Time for a change I say! Doctors are now going in different directions. With their extensive medical training, they are now taking that into the direction of alternative treatments.
I myself, had even been sent to a centre in my home town that had Doctors and alternative therapies. They are out there. But they are having growing pains. And it aint cheap!
You can get chemo and radiation in Canada for free! Crazy expensive drugs and tons of expensive hospital time paid by our government. Our tax dollars. BUT, the less costly and in my opinion, possibly more effective alternative OR adjuvant therapies must come out of your wallet!!
I believe there will come a day when the alternative therapies will replace the current. Why do people still use herbs and Chinese medicines? There’s a reason after thousands of years..and that’s cause they work!
But Big Pharma won’t make a dime off it. Hospitals won’t receive funding for these therapies (yet) like they do for chemo drugs.
Doctors in the U.S get a nice big cheque every time they refer a patient for Chemo. That’s not corrupt?!
Out of this frustration, came the will to relearn what I needed to do to heal, and survive. FOOD IS MEDICINE. MEDICINE IS FOOD
Easy to read, harder to instill. But I was in a fight for my life. There was no way I was leaving my kids, a 10-year-old without a mom.
So now food is my therapy. Making sure daily I give my body what it needs to continue this fight. From supplements to eating the right cancer fighting foods.
I don’t think you should eat this way when you get cancer, I think you should eat this way to keep it as far away as possible.
So as promised for a reader that has reached out to me, this is a list of some of the things I take DAILY:
I cup of cruciferous vegetable twice a day (usually more cuz I love them)
I take curcumin with piperine
Dandelion root in supplement form
A good multi V
I eat 5 or 6 Apricot kernels (This is also known as B17 or Laetrile
I DO NOT eat refined sugars
Berries such as raspberries, blueberries and blackberries.
I take a drop or two of Frankincense oil
I also try and buy organic when I can
I buy Non-GMO certified
All my herbs and teas were replaced with organic brands
That’s the short list 😊
My offering, for today!
