It's 2:00 PM on a Tuesday... and there's nothing I have to do... Now, let's face it...if we were 10 years old, this would be a travesty with the inclination to run to a screen to fill this quiet and open mind.   But when you are almost 45 years old and having spent most of your adult time working ...Read More...

It's Not the Snoring Beast! I'm typically a great sleeper.  Even during super busy and high stress seasons, sleeping 7-9 hours is no problem and I relish in the rest that I'm able to take.  Sleep is super important for healing and maintaining wellness, but that topic is for another post.   The ...Read More...

Iodine Deficiency is believed to affect all Americans! As I embarked on my adventure to explore the "why's" and "how's" of my cancer development, every doctor and practitioner considered my iodine levels (along with Vitamin D and Omegas).  I was told that most cancer patients have iodine levels that ...Read More...

Mosquitos & DEET go hand in hand, right?   NOPE! It's that time of year where the emergence of bugs begin from their winter hibernations.  And after a mild winter, they will emerger earlier and hungrier than we'd prefer to see.  In addition to medicines, beauty and cleaning products, there ARE alternatives ...Read More...

"No man chooses evil because it is evil:                                          he only mistakes it for happiness" This was the opening quote on one of my favorite shows, Grimm.  And yes, while I am one that seeks out influences full of peace, love, harmony, sound mind, etc... I do enjoy a bit ...Read More...

Today I hear of, yet again, another passing...this time, a classmate of mine from high school. Though I haven't seen her since, she was always a shining light to those around her, and you could have only blessed memories of her. She always made us laugh as we cheered together along the sidelines for ...Read More...

How it all began.... November 23rd, 2013 - Healing Touch #1 Post Diagnosis There was a calm, wrapping around my feet.  Like warm velvet, full of strength and yet comforting, soft, a deep blue enveloped my heels while entwining through my toes.  Waves of softness and ease follows strength and ...Read More...

Gifts for a King.   Yet gifts for man throughout time.   The story we have all heard...the three wise men from the east who brought gifts of frankincense, myrrh and gold to Jesus.   How ignorant we have been for so many years now to not recognize that there is more to this than we realized.   There ...Read More...

As is the nature of building a new career while phasing out another, the consistency of both will suffer during the transition.   So it's been a while since I've been able to post anything.  That being said, I thought I would share a few personal things with you to re-launch a new inundation of posts ...Read More...

OVERDIAGNOSIS...More Common Than You'd Think... While this is directed toward thyroid cancer specifically, this is often the approach that most natural practitioners take when working with cancer patients.  With everything I have read, I personally believe that most cases have time to work through ...Read More...

Meat.  It's Still What's For Dinner (For Some) If you are currently healing from cancer (especially tumorous), or have just recently healed, animal proteins should still be kept at bay as much as possible.   While many continue on a vegetarian/vegan lifestyle after cancer, many will want to reintroduce ...Read More...

I'm so busy these days!   How often do we hear that when we check in with our friends?  Probably 9.5 out of 10 times, right?  Until cancer, I was one of the 9.5 and today I am the 0.5.   Why?   Because my life depends on it. After more than 2 years of study and research, I have yet to come across ...Read More...

Your Fired!    If only it was that easy, right?  Only in recent decades have doctors had the presumed power over patients, turning what was once reverence to one of fear today.   Fear of confrontation and questioning is quite common because no one wants to feel belittled during a health crisis, and ...Read More...

But I'm HEALTHY!

Cancer Killers.   It is one of my favorite books when it comes to the basic essentials of understanding cancer, how to rid the body of it and help to prevent it.   The approach in this book along with other holistic healings is not only to rid the cancer, but prevent it's return.  And frankly, that ...Read More...
