It only took me nearly 46 years to figure this out... That my name, "Paula", has a cool twist of life path outcome for me.  Growing up, I've always been fascinated to learn when people are given names after a family member, an event the parents encountered, or a special meaning or intention for ...Read More...

Well, DUH. Ok, "duh" to anyone who has researched the real fundamentals of cancer development, spread and prevention,  However, I was NOT one of those informed until after I had my mastectomy, so there's that.  But little did I know that the changes I did make prior to that surgery made a huge difference ...Read More...

Healing is Forever... The counting of months and years as "cancer free" have fallen flat for me this year.  In fact, days go by where I don't really pay much attention, and when I was asked recently how long it had been since my cancer adventure began, I had to think about it.  But this month of ...Read More...

"Learn to Love Your Cancer"... Say WHAT?!?!  Yup, you hear that right.  And the first time I heard it, I thought it was absolutely crazy talk!  But the more I learned, and the more I was willing to receive in my healing adventure, the more I understood this seemingly backwards idea. When working ...Read More...

The Essence of Life is Breath... As a member of Healing Touch Buddies in FL, I received this image to share...and it really promted further thought on this matter. We all know this in our minds, but for someone who's just received a cancer diagnosis, it is a critical reminder. Remember, I've been ...Read More...

Cannabis... I did not included cannabis as part of my cancer protocol, but I certainly would have if I had the access and information that I have in hand today. However, I do have CBD in my nature's medicine cabinet and I'm continuing to research the plant for my own knowledge. While it's the big ...Read More...

I write to heal... As many of you know, my father-in-law passed away early last week.  This came as no surprise as his health had been an issue for many years and his decline was slow, yet imminent.  I always joked with him (lovingly playful) that he was part feline and that he had gone well beyond ...Read More...

It CAN be released... We've all been experiencing this "shift" lately.  For most, the recent events of our country and world - both in nature and by the hands of humans - have deeply disturbed even the most grounded.  Even my cranial sacral therapist sensed my own disturbance during my appointment ...Read More...

Too Much Toxicity + Low Immunity = Disease... It really IS that simple! And this is not a theory that applies to the common cold or current virus of the day, but to long term disease as well.  At some point in time, a diseased person's body was loaded with a toxin (or multiple toxins) at the same ...Read More...

Remain Calm! Easier said then done, right?  When you or your loved one receives that call confirming the bad news, a wave of shock wraps around, over and under, wiping away your view of the rest of the world.  The speculations begin and fear overwhelms while only murmers of those around us hint ...Read More...

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!

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!

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.
