Budwig Diet

Hubby is adding the Budwig diet to his juicing protocol.

Victoria Boutenko (rawfamily.com) has great information in her books on juicing – on notable distinction she makes –

(I am paraphrasing)

– should fruits and vegetables be juiced/blended together?

VB says – there should be 3 categories –

fruits

vegetables

greens (leaves of vegetables)

and VB says – greens can be combined with fruits, can be combined with vegetables (non-leafy).

She’s done it since 1993 and has had success after success with her family (out of five, four were very sick) and other people across the world.

Her books are available in local libraries.

GMO Pesticides – Not Good For Your Family

http://www.gmo-compass.org/eng/news/476.docu.html

Differing studies

Cultivation of genetically modified plants: more or less pesticide?


(17.11.2009) Two current studies on the environmental influence of genetically modified (GM) plants arrive at differing results. According to one study, significantly more pesticide has been applied to fields since the cultivation of genetically modified plants began in 1996. The other study books substantial environmental relief through GM plants.

One study, authored by Charles Benbrook and published by the American non-governmental organisations The Organic Center and Union of Concerned Scientists, has come to a negative result: since the market entry of herbicide-resistant GM plants in the USA in 1996, the quantity of applied herbicidehas increased by 175 million kilogrammes, of which 46 per cent fall in the years 2007 and 2008 alone. According to Benbrook, primarily in the south of the USA numerous weeds have spread in the meanwhile that have developed resistance to the herbicide agent glyphosate (Roundup) suited to the GM plants. Many farmers attempt to combat these weeds through higher doses of glyphosate or through the application of other herbicide agents. For this reason, a further increase in the amount of deployed pesticide may be expected.

In contrast, a positive balance is found in the study conducted by the British agricultural economist Graham Brookes (PG Economics). He ascertained a world-wide decrease in the application of herbicide between 1996 and 2007 due to the cultivation of GM plants. According to the study, approximately 200 million fewer kilogrammes of herbicide were deployed. However, in contrast to Benbrook, Brookes did not compare the total quantity of herbicide deployed but the quantities of active agent. In the case of soy, according to Brooks, a reduction in deployed herbicide agent of 4.6 per cent in comparison to the level of 1996 was found as a result of the cultivation of herbicide-resistant varieties. In the case of cotton, this figure was 15 per cent.

With regard to insect-resistant plants, the studies arrive at similar conclusions: Benbrook determined a reduction in the application of plant protection agents by 28 million kilogrammes since 1996 as a result of the cultivation of Bt maize and Bt cotton.

According to Brookes, the worldwide application sank by as much as 157 million kilogrammes. Once again, this was stated in terms of the active agent. For this study, primarily cotton contributed to environmental relief through insecticide reduction. However, neither China nor India, which have large field areas of Bt cotton, were addressed by Benbrook.

In total, Brookes calculates a global environmental relief of 17 per cent due to the lowered need for insecticide and herbicide in the cultivation of GM plants. In contrast, Charles Benbrook states the stark increase in glyphosate-resistant weeds as the primary problem. As a result, he expects rising costs, declining yields and increasing environmental strain.

Update – Juicing Against Cancer

This is the second weekend of hubby’s more stringent protocol, using juicing to nourish and detox.

Last weekend – he was aching and in discomfort, sit up, lay down, just did not feel right, sort of fighting flu and not.  Then a couple of days later, he was feeling great.

He got disheartened thinking that those few days were a sign that he was not doing the right thing.   Then, we came upon this website (I have posted this separately) at http://www.treating-cancer-alternatively.com where this lady decided against chemo from the moment she was diagnosed and, instead, nourished and detoxed her body – she is cancer-free, she does provide an email address so you can fact-check for yourself, which I have not done, but she did list similar symptoms that hubby was going through.  He got quite upset with those few days that we went to eat and he had beef hor fun and turnip and beef hot pot.  Oh well, we had a great time, saw 2012 too.

It was the next day,  we found Alice’s website, where she used Gerson therapy.  Hubby is back to protocol.  Today, started those symptoms again.  So, he is doing energy stuff, meditation, mind things, and continuing juicing.  Today, he had some fish and he actually felt better eating that.  I made a thermos of herbal tea (jasmine, hibiscus, rosehips, chamomile, peppermint, valerian) as most people have advocated sipping at good herbal teas through the day.

Conquering that Enemy

Called Cancer – Alternatively

I am living proof of conquering sickness, and I climbed my mountain with strength, energy, vitality and abundant life.

Cancer is an enemy that strikes with fear, pain, and death. We face confusion, chaos, and devastation. Our emotions run out of control with anger, bitterness, and resentment. Both the individual and loved ones are facing individually the “enemy called cancer” with no answers.

Is it possible to conquer the “enemy”?  If so how?   It is time for you and your loved ones to conquer “your mountain”.

No Surgery, No Chemo, No Radiation, No Drugs

Together we will share “Gems” of truth and

discover how our bodies heal.

Here I am 7 years later.  I am here to share with you the “Gems” of truth I discovered along the way.

That phone call, appointment, or announcement of cancer changes you and your family’s life!

I know.  I was struggling with fatigue, weakness, and a general unrest.  I decided to go for a check-up.  It was a Friday.

I went for a routine mammogram.  They requested to do a simple biopsy.

I thought it was based on my age.  How naïve I was?

The following day, Saturday, we received the phone call from the surgeon saying I had cancer, two locations, two types.  They wanted me in for mastectomy on Monday.

When asked the prognosis? They suggested 6 months or so if I did not respond, maybe 2.5 – 5 years as I followed the medical regimen.

I did not like either answer.

We turned to God Almighty, asking what we should do.  We had learned to hear His Voice.  We each listened individually and then shared our response.  God, through Jesus Christ, spoke the same things to each of us.

He would Heal.  He, Jesus Christ, would teach us to live and care for our bodies.

I was led to many therapy individuals and websites.  I chose to turn my back on surgery, chemo, radiation, and other medical treatments and drugs.  I would follow natural options that could be done in the confines of our home.

Whether you have chosen the medical route or another route of healing  – you will begin a journey of discovering “Gems” of truth and regain a life of strength, energy and vitality.

Although I will share about cancer – theses “Gems” of truth really apply to every illness, debilitation, or affliction.

My passion is to teach and give hope. I desire to be a part in giving abundant life, health, and energy back to you and your family.

Together, we will share solutions to every aspect of our lives, spirituallyemotional, mentally, andphysically. You may not agree with everything, however please think of our sharing as a “buffet” table.  Take what you need and leave the rest.

I will share again and again how I conquered the enemy called cancer in my life and the preventive measures for my family.  It is my desire that you and your family are and will find the same healing.

ABOUT ME – My Life

I went to college and trained in nutrition and counseling.  I attained both my B.S. degree and Master’s degree.  I taught school (7th – adult) for 17 years and then worked in the corporate world.

I changed my eating habits and purchased food from the market place.  I enjoyed the convenience of

  • fast food,
  • cooked food,
  • microwaves,
  • processed food, and
  • prepared frozen dinners and
  • all the other conveniences of moving into the 21st century.

30 years later I faced herniated discs, arthritis, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, aches and pains, edge of diabetics, overweight, and finally cancer with a death sentence of 2 – 5 years at best.

Would my body heal itself?  How do I begin to turn back to the basics?

I made my choice to chose to conquer cancer alternatively.

7 years later, my body has and is continually renewing itself.  All the diseases and afflictions have ceased.  My last area of healing is in reduced weight.  As my liver continues to heal, the metabolism will change and the weight will come off naturally.  The body will shed, and continually work, to create the optimal health and weight.

Early Experiences from farm life that influenced me

I grew up on a Wisconsin farm.  My parents chose to raise our crops and animals without using chemicals, fertilizers, and hormones.  I saw and experienced the difference.

I worked closely with my Dad on the farm.  He was always careful to give back to the earth plenty of nutrients.  That was the foundation of our next year’s crop.

If an animal was sick, it was cleaned up and separated from the rest of the animals.  The animal was given extra tender love and care and special food to strengthen it’s immune system.  Most of the time, the animal recovered.

It has always amazed me that we become sick we are separated from the family and in the hospital we are given sodas, puddings, jello, and other foods that does not seem to build the immune system.

A few years ago when monies were more abundant, we had our lawn commercial cared for.  The lawn became very lush and green.

I was diagnosed with cancer and chose to go alternatively.  Our monies were redirected toward investments in my health.

It has been interesting to see how quickly the dandelions, thistles and quack grass took over our lawn.  The thistles and weeds are more abundant than before we worked with the commercial lawn care.

As I considered what had happened, I realized that the commercial lawn care did not feed nutrients to our lawn, thereby killing the thistles and weeds.  They only masked the problem with chemicals and fertilizers that killed the weeds and thistles initially.  Every season the chemicals and fertilizers had to be repeated.

Now, each time I mow the lawn, I am reminded that the same thing is happening inside my body.

I can choose to go medically and through surgery, chemotherapy, radiation the cancer cells can be killed.  It seems as though all is well.  However the immune system has not been strengthened.

As a result the cancer often returns more vigorous than before.

Each time I mow and work on my lawn I am reminded of my Dad when he said “The way you kill weeds is by giving the earth more nutrients.  The weeds and thistles will choke themselves. The crops will grow and produce.”

I believe that is similar to fighting cancer.  As I strengthen my immune system and detoxify my body of all the chemicals, pesticides, hormones, additives and preservatives, my body will regenerate and kill the cancer.

Seven years later I live to speak truth to the need to feed my body.  I am reminded of the scripture verse: Galations 6:7 “What you sow you will reap”

I choose to sow health options and to reap health and vitality.

Muscle Testing – Touch For Health – John Thie – Vianna Stibal – Lifonics

Notochemo: The same website below at thetahealingtechnique.com publishes the following about Vianna Stibal and below that, I have extracted Vianna’s claim to her technique.  Make your own judgement to decide between Lifonics and Theta Healing.

 

IN MY RESEARCH OF THETA HEALING WHICH BROUGHT ME TO VIANNA STIBAL ETC. I FOUND OUT ABOUT “TOUCH FOR HEALTH” CREATED BY JOHN THIE (AND MATTHEW THIE).  JOHH THIE SEEM TO HAVE VERY CREDIBLE CREDENTIALS.  Well, researching is endless.

_________________________

 

 

http://www.thetahealingtechnique.com/instant-healing.html

 

 

Dear Trisha,

I have received an email from you this morning about Lifonics and have been reading it with interest.  It would seem that you have taken ThetaHealing and renamed it.  I understand that ThetaHealing develops in its own way for everyone who works with it.  We find ways to improve on the Basic tools and the speed and depth to which it works increases as time goes on.  Many new experiences, insights and intriguing ways to work with Source come flooding through; this is the beauty of being ‘connected’.

 

What I don’t understand is why you are separating yourself from that Oneness and competing in a way that appears to show, that you have taking what you have learned from Vianna and remodeled it without even a mention of who or what inspired you.

It looks and feels to me like plagiarism and I’m wondering how you justify this.

With Intrigue
A Reader

 

Hi Reader,

There are some elements in Lifonics–such as the potential power of belief and feeling work–that I learned when I was a ThetaHealer: elements that exist also in Psych, EFT, etc. and which Vianna actually took from her years as a Religious Scientist and did not credit them with. She also took many elements from shamanism, common ways of psychically working with people. etc. that have no uniqueness in the way they are presented in ThetaHealing. ThetaHealing is essentially a mish-mash of other techniques, with the addition of “Creator,” a dark entity that Vianna claims is God or the All but which hundreds—perhaps even thousands—of people have experienced as otherwise.

Elements, such as belief work, that Lifonics also utilizes I fully credit Vianna and others with in my manuals, which you have not seen. Also, if you look at http://www.lifonics.com/faq-general.html you will see that I also credit ThetaHealing on my Lifonics website for the useful elements—really just the belief and feeling work—that I learned there.

Actually, Evolutionary Technique has been a much bigger influence on me than ThetaHealing. I credit it too and, unlike Vianna, Evolutionary Technique founder Soleira Green invites all of her students to utilize principles that she has developed in their own classes–principles that are so powerful compared to ThetaHealing that everyone who takes her training goes 2-3 paradigms beyond the rather outdated paradigm ThetaHealing is based on.

If you took Lifonics courses, you would see that they too are based on a whole new paradigm way more advanced than what ThetaHealing is doing and that most of the Lifonics processes have little or nothing to do with anything in ThetaHealing. Even belief and feeling work is done in an entirely different way in Lifonics (more based on Radionics) than in ThetaHealing.

In Lifonics there is no “Creator,” which is a very dangerous entity to work with. In Lifonics it not a matter of connecting with something outside of yourself, as in ThetaHealing, but of viscerally stepping into your massive mega being, actually becoming yourself the All, and working from there.

This is another place where Lifonics differs from ThetaHealing. In Lifonics we don’t just give lip service to oneness; we actually work from the visceral feeling and realization that we are all unique expressions of One Being. The LifeForce energy that makes me alive is virtually identical to your LifeForce energy. And in Lifonics, we really feel our oneness—especially when we are in our true massive mega being—and we evolve new ways of living, playing, and working in the world from there. In contrast, ThetaHealing talks about oneness, but its whole organization is around an implicit belief in separateness: Creator is a separate energy practitioners must connect with, there are separate Planes of Existence, other people are relatively small separate entities from us with “problems” to be solved, etc.

One of the most important elements of Lifonics (which is wholly absent in ThetaHealing) is the practice of looking at the massive mega being of the client and seeing what they are truly up to in the world, what their life purpose and gifts are, and how they can best manifest these in their lives. I call this looking at a person’s magnificence. It is dazzling both for the practitioner and the client and can, by itself, totally transform the client’s life forever, changing hundreds of beliefs and feelings automatically.

Another huge difference is that instead of ThetaHealing’s focus on “problems” that need to be changed and what is “wrong” with the client, Lifonics looks at what the higher potential of each challenge is and what is really right with the client. This includes showing the client concretely how each challenge is a perfect opportunity for them to go to the next level of growth in their lives and showing them how to use it as such. When the higher potential is revealed and the client steps into that energy, “problems” disappear. And this happens in a painless, pleasant (even ecstatic), and uplifting way.

I hope this gives you a rudimentary understanding of some of the major differences between ThetaHealing and Basic Lifonics! If you read carefully the descriptions of the 14 Lifonics classes, you will see that they actually have very little in common with ThetaHealing.

When the information (that later changed and became Lifonics) first started coming to me, I thought it could be incorporated into ThetaHealing. I offered it as such to Vianna who (via her husband Guy)—without seeing any of my materials—immediately threatened to sue me if I didn’t: destroy the courses I was developing, take mention of them off my website, promise to never teach such courses again, and apologize to Vianna for ever having dreamed of such courses.

As this shocking correspondence between the Stibals and me played out, it was an eye-opening experience to find out how Vianna and her husband Guy don’t live at all according to the principles of ThetaHealing. For them, life is about competition, separation, hierarchy, and insulting, disparaging, and beating down anyone who will not tow the line with them. I am now in contact with many former ThetaHealers who have been traumatized by Guy and Vianna’s brutal treatment of them over the years.

I also, along the way, found out about many of the lies Vianna tells her students (for example, she did NOT have an instant healing from her cancer, as she claims), her many plagiarisms (Religious Science, medical texts in her incredibly inaccurate and even dangerous Intuitive Anatomy course, etc.), and her many legal misrepresentations (she has no registered trademark on ThetaHealing, she has no copyright on any of the ideas she uses–only the way she states them in her manuals–and the contract she forces teachers to sign is illegal in multiple ways). I already knew about many of the inaccuracies in her work, but the above was quite disheartening.

And it was not fun finding out how many ThetaHealers have some version of the belief, “Vianna must be obeyed,” which she implants subliminally in susceptible people—teachers and practitioners—who take her courses (which the teachers then pass on to others). Vianna, according to some who know her, has had a guru complex for many years and cannot let go of that adoration so that she can actually truly empower and free people. Whereas I believe that healing and coaching work should make people freer, more empowered in all ways, and able to be independent.

I think that the mind control in ThetaHealing is shameful. When I had the Creator entity attachment removed from me, I felt a subtle part of myself return which had been absent without my realizing it during the whole time I was a ThetaHealer. My wish for all ThetaHealers is that they may wake up and recover this valuable part of themselves that has been lost.

Because of my insistence on truth, on freedom, and on expanding healing in the world, and because of my “disrespect” toward Vianna (because I think and act independently) and Guy’s assertion that my new classes give me an “unfair advantage” over others, Vianna suspended my 4 teaching certificates (which makes no practical difference to me since I wasn’t teaching ThetaHealing classes anymore anyway). In case you are interested in the correspondence between us, I am attaching it here. It will soon be on my ThetaHealing website too for all to see. Despite Vianna and Guy’s ill treatment of me, I sincerely wish them very well. I think there are a positive elements in ThetaHealing, which I continue to mention on my ThetaHealing website, though I don’t do ThetaHealing anymore myself (Lifonics is so much more powerful).

I hope this helps you to understand the situation. I don’t feel that I am in competition with anyone. I feel my oneness with all beings, and I believe in cooperating for the highest and best good of all. All people can heal themselves and facilitate healing for others, and they can do so through a variety of different modalities. That’s why I am so open about healing modalities and promote so many different ones on my Healer Database (www.HealerDatabase.com) so that everyone can get the help that is best for them. All healers—and all human beings—are my brothers and sisters.

Lots of love to you,
Trisha

(Here, from the same website where I extracted the correspondence above, is more about Trisha’s experiences about Vianna Stibal.)

did vianna have an instant healing?

 

ThetaHealing is based on founder Vianna Stibal’s claim that she healed herself instantly of terminal cancer using its principles. This alleged spectacular occurrence is what validates in ThetaHealing practitoners’ and teachers’ minds the ability of ThetaHealing to effect instant physical cures in clients. But did this healing actually take place?
Three different people who were very close to Vianna at the time have assured me that it did not—they say she recovered from the cancer over a long period of time through natural methods.
This was a very shocking revelation to me at first, even though I was in the process of leaving ThetaHealing already at the time. It did, though, explain some things that I had found puzzling.

 

  • When I went to take teacher training and met Vianna for the first time, her energy field looked rather weak to me and she was sniffling constantly. I wondered why she didn’t heal her runny nose if she had healed herself of cancer. Also, there was a lot of sickness I noticed in her immediate circle—her husband’s psoriasis and her massage therapist’s asthmatic son being just two examples—that she did not seem to be addressing. (I now understand that one of her little granddaughters has been in and out of the hospital many times and Vianna has never even attempted to help her.) Granted, you cannot heal someone who is not willing and who won’t let go of certain beliefs and feelings, but wouldn’t Vianna’s own family be willing to have her work on them and be open to changing?
  • Vianna has some major health crisis almost every year. I understand, by the way, that she has now had surgery to fix her nose, but last year (2008) she fell into a coma, before that she had congestive heart failure, she’s been in serious auto accidents (one she even sued her husband Guy over to get insurance money, saying that she had suffered permanent injury in the court documents), etc. Someone close to her told me that she also carries around a bag of pharmaceutical drugs that she frequently takes. Why not use ThetaHealing to heal herself of all that and, better yet, not let any serious health conditions develop, if she could do so?
  • In Vianna’s latest edition (2008) of her general book, ThetaHealing, she talks about how she instantly healed herself of bone cancer in the late 1990’s and that this was the genesis of ThetaHealing—her shrunken leg bone immediately returned to full length and strengthened when the healing happened. But in other talks and in earlier books (I understand the first edition of her first book has a very different story, but I haven’t been able to get a copy of it), her story has varied. Since her alleged instant healing (not just before the healing took place, as she now says in her latest general book), Vianna has given the following different accounts (and more) of what happened:
    • Vianna had blood cancer.
    • Vianna had lymphoma.
    • Vianna had bone cancer.
    • Vianna healed herself in front of her office.
    • Vianna healed herself inside of her office with other healing colleagues in attendance.
    • Vianna healed herself at home in front of her family.

 

So you can take your pick of which story to believe. You do wonder, though, why if the instant healing really did occur, Vianna’s story about it has kept changing. Each version of the story has become more dramatic. Could it be that Vianna doesn’t remember what she said from one time to the other (the various editions of her main book have been based largely on recordings of talks she’s given) and looks each time to create the best story? The founding story of ThetaHealing seems to be just that: a story.

About Vianna Stibal – Founder of ThetaHealing™

My name is Vianna. I am the founder of the technique ThetaHealing™. In 1995 I received an instant healing from cancer through the Creator of All That Is. Since then, I have healed myself through the Creator many times using ThetaHealing™.

From the first time that I had an Instantaneous Healing my curiosity has always been the same; “what made my leg heal so fast?” Years later I was diagnosed with congestive heart failure. Yet again I found another way to make my heart heal incredibly fast. Once again I asked the same question, “what made my body heal so fast?” Perhaps the correct question should be “why did I have to get sick in the first place?” As always, the Creator answered me with the same patience. I was told, “Vianna you have a resilient body. You should bless your body. Encourage your body, don’t discourage it.”

I’ve witnessed thousands of instant healings with my clients and my students. I have spent my time since 1995 showing others how to do this simple meditation and receive results. In 2000 I began to certify others to teach it.

ThetaHealing™ is best described as a way to tap into clear answers. It also enables the participant to find limiting beliefs and change them instantly. No long goals, no reading affirmations, no voodoo who-do, just a simple realization and decision to change them and then witnessing the Creator instantly change them. The Four Level Belief Work was shown to me to help my clients.

After I was healed from cancer, people found me. The very sick came in droves. I asked the Creator how to help them. Some got better with just simple Healings. Others did not, and I was told they believed they should be sick. Working with Belief Systems was not new to me at the time. I had been married to a hypnotist and despite our differences he was good at what he did. But hypnosis was a long process. Some of the beliefs were genetic and historic. God showed me the Four Level Belief Work after I remarried my man from Montana, Guy Stibal. The results were amazing people came from everywhere to be healed and taught. Then the Feeling Work was formed. The ThetaHealing™ book and Advanced ThetaHealing™ describe the technique. There are certified teachers in ThetaHealing™ everywhere as I share my answers and prayers with the world. Most of the teachers I’ve taught are amazing, only a few have brought me heartache. Still I am driven by a sense of purpose to share what I know. I know that there is a Creator and we are part of it. That we are divine and as we clear limiting beliefs, all things are possible. I cannot deny that I was healed as my x-rays of my leg are a constant reminder. I have watched things instantly appear (with witnesses of course.) I healed my car (with witnesses of course.) I have seen people heal and others that did not. But I have a knowing that the Creator is Real and no matter what religion you are you can tap into it.

I have dedicated my life to the Creator, teaching others the realization that we are one. Through this journey, I have found ways of helping myself and others to have health, love and joy.

ThetaHealing™’s amazing success is based on the purity of the work and the devotion of its teachers and practitioners that love and spread this work over many cultures. Each teacher and practitioner brings their own amazing experience, but the technique stays pure.

Reiki – Pulse

Hubby had a reiki session today, short one, but he had the same Reiki practitioner before – she said energy was flowing in his abdomen and leg (the affected one) – that she felt a therapeutic pulse which was not there before.  Hubby is doing great!  This new protocol is doing something very right.

Hubby Stopped This Protocol

I wrote the date and I lost it, but I would say, about two months ago, hubby stopped Dr Tom Wu’s anticancer smoothie.  We monitored – probably the tomatoes started to bother him.  See Hubby’s Healing – Nov 7 – we started a new rigid protocol of juicing.

Anne Frahm – Healthquarters.org

Anne Frahm documented her recovery to cancer by using alternative health methods (after conventional medicine failed).  In the end, she passed away and her husband has provided this letter to explain what/why/how Anne succumbed to toxicity despite her previous success with alternative health methods.  You can visit the site provided below to read more of what Anne left to others who need help with cancer.  David Frahm has lodge programs in Colorado Springs, Colorado to help people regain or maintain health.

“Dear Friends:

As you have no doubt heard, my dear wife Anne Frahm went home to be with Jesus on Feb. 5th. On the 9th we celebrated her life with several hundred friends and family who gathered in tribute. Many in the audience were there because Anne had given them help and hope in the face of their own health battles. Hers is now over, but the ministry of HealthQuarters remains as a reflection of her heart for others. The kids and I miss her, but rejoice that she’s in good hands and loving it. She’s run away with a better man, and that’s OK by me.

So what happened?

The autopsy reads that she died from cancer that had returned to her backbone and pleural lining of her lungs. Fluid was also accumulating in the sack around her heart, which in the end caused it to quit working.

But why did this happen? Wasn’t Anne doing what she knew to do to keep cancer cells in check?

The answer to that is yes. We were working very hard at all that we knew to do. Through our years of study we’d come to subscribe to the notion that there’s really only one disease of the body, and that’s toxicity. Cancer, and all other so-called diseases, are really just symptoms of a system in disrepair–a body that has become so overwhelmed with a toxic buildup that it can’t perform the self-healing and protective functions God designed within it.

For the last year or so Anne had been plagued by troublesome symptoms in her system. Blood tests revealed a rise in her CEA rate (a tumor marker), to which she’d responded by redoubling her efforts at juice fasting and internal cleansing. We’d also begun seeing a “wholistic-minded” MD who traced the source of the development of a small tumor in her ovaries to infection in her jaw bone beneath a certain tooth. A “biologically-trained” dentist (a dentist who recognizes that what goes on in the mouth impacts the rest of the entire body) drilled a little hole in the bone and flooded the infected area with homeopathic medicines to kill the offending bacteria. The ovarian tumor went away.

That experience taught us how devastating jaw bone infections (known as cavitations) can be to one’s health. Little did we know then that there were other cavitations yet to be detected. Finally, afier two more rounds of identifying and injecting various cavitation sites, oral surgery was strongly suggested. A month and a half before her death, in some back-pain at this point but not to the point of being immobile as she later became, Anne had three areas in her jaw laid open. Two were places where bone had never healed after the extraction of wisdom teeth 25 years previous. These empty holes, in direct contact with her sinuses, had become breeding grounds for a bacterial build up. The third site, a place in her lower right jaw, proved to be a nasty mass of pus. Early indications show that both aflatoxin and botulism, two very toxic and life threatening bacteria, were present. (By the way, cavitations are not only potentially deadly, but for the most part silent. Very seldom is there any pain associated with their existence. Guess it’s important for us all to regularly call upon professionals trained to be able to identify them.)

Although all three cavitation sites were cleaned thoroughly, the lower right quickly became reinfected. In fact, getting that cavitation dealt with (and any others that might’ve shown themselves) was top on our list of priorities as I loaded up our van on February 1, preparing to drive Anne down to see our specially trained dentist (in another state). Anne’s body, however, would not cooperate. She had become so depleted and immobile over the last weeks that she couldn’t raise herself that morning from the recliner she’d used for sleep over the last six months. Her pain was excruciating. It became abundantly clear to me that I needed to get her into the local hospital and get her some spot radiation to see if that would help her regain mobility.

Radiation was something she swore she’d never do again to her body after her first experience nearly ten years previous. It was an emotionally hard decision for me to make, but my only option. My intent was to see if we couldn’t get the tumor load on her spine reduced, then get her back to doing all the dental detoxing and immune system rebuilding.

Perhaps that raises yet another question worth trying to address. With all the juice fasting, internal cleansing, and immune system building Anne had been doing for years (and in fact helped her get well the first time around), should that not have taken care of the jaw infections without the need of injections and surgery?

Theoretically, yes. However, in Anne’s case there were complicating factors weighing heavily upon her body’s ability to build and maintain immune system power.

In teaching people who come to our Lodge to work at improving their heath, I liken our bodies to cars. As we go through life we tend to pick up various rocks (through our own choices or the impact of things outside our control) and put them in our “trunks”, which puts a growing burden on our whole system. At some point the growing pile of rocks may get too heavy, causing a break down.

In Anne’s case, at least five very large rocks remained in her trunk up until the end. The cavitation rock, of course, which I’ve been explaining. The other four was mercurv toxicity (having to do with dental fillings in her mouth), parasites, iron poisoning (having to do with blood transfusions) and bitter-root-judgements (having to do with emotional/spiritual issues).

Mercurv toxicity. Over the years Anne had collected a total of 14 mercury fillings in as many teeth.

If you’ve got silver fillings in your own mouth, they’re at least 50% mercury. Mercury, although easy to use in dentistry, is also the most toxic non radioactive substance on the planet. It’s so nasty that it’s now illegal to bury it in the ground. For many years the American Dental Association claimed that once it’s buried in your teeth, however, that it’s all right. In 1985 that notion was proven conclusively wrong. Mercury fillings do leak mercury fumes every time one chews.

There is no safe exposure to mercury. Those who have studied these things say that more than four mercury fillings in one’s teeth present a very dangerous situation. As I said, Anne had 14.

Afew years back she’d had all her mercury fillings (otherwise known as amalgams) replaced with nontoxic substances. She’d turned off the mercury ‘faucet”. Unfortunately, there were still the pools in her body to mop up. Once in the bloodstream, mercury has an affinity for the brain, kidneys and liver.

In Anne’s last year, our ‘wholistic-minded” MD did some testing which revealed three things: 1) Anne’s body was detoxing mercury from her brain tissues, 2) her kidneys (the only way out of the body for mercuries) were under heavy stress, and 3) her liver was in reverse spin, no doubt caused in whole or part due to mercury. (All organs in the body have an electrical spin to them, and they spin in the right direction. Nutrients are spun in, toxins spun out. When an organ is in reverse or left spin, toxins are spun in and nutrients out– the exact opposite of what is healthy.)

In addition, he told us that parasites are attracted to and feed off mercury. Further testing revealed that Anne was battling two specific types of parasites in her system: 1) Giardia, a microscopic parasite often found in mountain streani water and surrounding tap water, and 2)Taenia, also known as a tapeworm.

It’s not unusual that Anne was dealing with parasites. Most of us have them. Growing up in the Midwest we knew that farmers made it a practice to de-worm their livestock and their kids twice a year. It’s a good idea for all of us to do a parasite cleanse at least twice a year. Anne’s problem with getting rid of them was the chow line of mercury locked up in her system. And when parasites find the mercury, they bring with them bacteria, viruses and very toxic excrement.

Well, that’s a lot of info, some of which you may not understand. Suffice it to say that mercury in her system was putting heavy stress on her body’s ability to heal and protect itself. Mercury rapidly depletes the immune system. We were doing some things to help her body purge it as fast as possible, but as I said her kidneys were having trouble. Mercury has the potential to impair kidney filtration by 50%.

Dentist Edward Arana writes, “Mercury and other heavy metals from dental fillings contribute to all chronic disease states.”

Iron poisoning. During the bone marrow transplant which she’d undergone some eight years previously, Anne had received in excess of 150 blood transfusions. With each introduction of new blood to her system came a whopping load of iron. Had she still been menstruating, her body would have been able to discharge any excess iron accumulating. However, chemotherapy had sent her system into menopause.

Excess iron had no way of escaping her body. Theoretically, chelation therapy should have been able to help. Chelation is the introduction of a certain chemical agent into the bloodstream via an intravenous drip in an effort to bind with excess iron and /or other heavy metals and flush them from the system. Trouble was, every time we tried it, very little impact was made on her iron (ferritin) levels, while at the same time it wreaked havoc on her magnesium stores. (Same thing happened when we tried to use chelation to fitish the mercury from her system). When magnesium is low, muscle pain is high. Hers would sore off the charts! She would get muscle spasms in her feet that would drive her to tears. They would be so intense that I’d fear she’d break a bone.

Although the normal range of ferritin (iron) in the blood is between 10-291, Anne’s was near 1600 at the time of her death. Chelation had not been working for us. We’d thought about bloodletting, basically having blood drawn and throwing it away. However, unsure her system could handle that, we never tried it.

So what’s the problem with having too much iron in one’s blood? First, according to Maria de Sousa of the Sloan-Kettering Cancer Research Institute, bacteria have a ravenous need for iron. What a food supply the bacteria in Anne’s jaw bone and elsewhere must have had! No wonder we were having trouble killing it off.

Secondly, white blood cells, our protective agents against both bacteria and cancer cells, are attracted to the iron in bacteria, thus making contact and killing them. However. when there are excess stores of iron in a body, our white blood cells attach themselves to this excess iron and are thus unavailable for our protection. Bacteria thrive. Cancer cells multiply and form tumors.

Iron poisoning was indeed a heavy rock in Anne’s “trunk” which we never did figure out how to unload from her system. I suppose there would have been a way had we given more attention and priority to it–maybe bloodletting would have helped after all. Bottom line, with all else that we were trying to do for her, and with our frustrations with her body’s response to chelation therapy, we just didn’t know that dealing with iron poisoning was as important as it was. Only as I’ve had time to review the battle plan in retrospect was I able to put two and two together.

And finally, the other significant rock in Anne’s trunk–bitter-root-judgement. Let me confess right up front that I’m not as informed in this element of the emotional/mental side of fighting cancer as I expect to be shortly. It was only in the last six months of Anne’s life that I began to see more clearly how the judgements we form against ourselves and carry- around inside us play perhaps the most important role in the health of our bodies.

John Diamond, MD observes that the emotional components of cancer are ~the most important and least addressed by conventional medicine. As children, sometimes even as babies or in the womb, we are wounded by circumstances (parental attitudes, relationships with siblings, and the overall family environment). To survive, we produce a response–many call it a wall–to maintain emotional and biological balance and protect ourselves.”

As I mentioned. in the last year of Anne’s life we’d had the pleasure of building a friendship with a ‘wholistic-minded” MD–a godly Christian man–who knew the importance of asking and granting forgiveness. He taught us that, as mentioned above, things can actually happen to a person, even while still in their mother’s womb, that are emotionally wounding. The resulting emotions, even if not consciously felt in later years, can be subconsciously retained. This can lead to what counselors refer to as “bitter-root-judgements”.

The best I can describe a bitter-root-judgement, is a condemnation you make against yourself subconsciously based upon how you perceive others to have treated you. For instance, if you were the result of an unwanted pregnancy, the emotions of regret and anger expressed by your mother or your father even while you were still in the womb will be perceived by you, the fetus, as rejection. The subconscious judgement you might make against yourself is “I don’t deserve happiness, health and healing” or “I do deserve sadness, pain and punishment”.

Another example would be, suppose your grandfather began to sexually molest you at a very young age. Your parents had no idea, often leaving you and your siblings in the care of this man. When you finally told your parents, you felt their anger at your revealing something that had the power to destroy the family. You also felt rejection–their seeming unwillingness to have protected you from this most vile of childhood experiences.

And yet another example, later in your childhood, in fact in junior high school, a male teacher, much you’re elder, begins to flirt with and fondle you. He calls you into his classroom repeatedly to stay after school. The blinds are pulled and the wrestling match ensues. When the principal and your parents are finally told, you get the impression that it’s somehow your own fault.

Later in life you become a Christian, and you begin to learn the importance of forgiveness. You read in the Bible that we are to forgive others, just as God has forgiven us. And you do. You see the need and you dutifully obey the practice of forgiving all the wrong done you in your early years–your formative years.

But there are some things that happened to you that you don’t even remember; things that your subconscious may be hanging on to but are not consciously felt. The subconscious which runs your body apart from your will–known as your autonomic nervous system–will actually begin to shut down various organs and systems in the body in response to the judgement that ‘I don’t deserve happiness,  health and healing”.

Then too, every now and then something will happen in your life as an adult that will trigger that subconsciously held bitter-root-judgement, again resulting in negative shut down by the autonomic  nervous system.

The key to overcoming this barrier to health and healing is to spend a lot of time every day in  prayer practicing forgiveness–forgiving people at every stage (fetus, child, adolescent, adult), and every age within each stage. Keeping short accounts with God. Not letting things fester. All the examples that I’ve shared above of potentiallv verv devastating situations actuallv happened to Anne. Imagine the depth of shame and rejection she must~ve felt, and later the anger. Scientists tell us that emotions impact tissues. Without question the emotions deeply imprinted on Anne’s psyche at an early age had an impact on her health as an adult. Yes, she was doing her best to practice forgiveness. If you asked her if she bore any anger or grudges, she’d have said no. To the best of her abilities, she’d forgiven all the wrong done her. But I do believe that her autonomic nervous system was still responding to that deeply held judgement that “I don’t deserve happiness health and healing.”

As I’ve mentioned, our MD friend was helping us learn how to detoxifi her mind and emotions. Still, she struggled. We were making definite progress, but the disease process overwhelmed her body before adequate emotional/spiritual healing could be reached.

Anne was a wonderful, caring, sensitive, artistic, cause-orientated woman whom I loved deeply and will miss always. She was also a deeply wounded soul, scarred by sin which so often surrounds us in this world–a world which she both loved and hated.

“I’m homesick for Jesus,” she told a friend not long ago.

Well, not anymore!

So my friends, that’s what I think was happening to Anne’s body during her last months. By God~s act of grace, He led her to use nutrition and nontoxic therapies to help her win back her health when cancer first reared its ugly head nearly 10 years ago. The conclusion I’ve come to in watching is that for some people simply cleaning out their liver and colon, improving their digestion, changing to a health promoting diet, and taking supplements will be all they need to regain their health. And indeed, that worked for my wife the first time around.

But for many others (perhaps most others), the cleansing/detoxing process must not stop there. There may be other big rocks to deal within one’s trunk. If left unattended they may get quite troublesome, creating an internal environment in which cancer can once again thrive.

In all healing there is a purpose. I’m fully convinced that His purpose in Anne’s original healing was so that she could launch and lay a firm foundation for the work of HealthQuarters Ministries.

My wife’s experiences have taught me much. Her life was a proving ground–a field studv for many of the things we now teach others who wish to be better stewards of their own health. Through what she experienced, I’ve learned and added to my own understanding of the broader scope of the detoxing process since we originally wrote A Cancer Battle Plan. The book I began writing shortly before her death, A Cancer Battle Plan Manual, will contain all that we learned these last 10 years.

Anne and I shared a common love for poetry. The following, by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, was our favorite and motivates me to press on in the face of the hollowness currently residing in my heart.”
