DIY Cure Cancer – Impressive Site

Have not done any fact-check on this but how this lady cured herself of cancer is impressive!  She uses Gerson therapy.


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 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.






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 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 ( 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,




(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.

Chakra Clearing – Angel Healing – DIY

Hubby had a few sessions with  a crystal reiki practitioner.  He said she was very different, told him about other beings coming down to heal him as well while she was working on him.

Anyway, she cleared his chakras and told him he could do it at home with Doreen Virtue’s Chakra Clearing cd.  I am interested in that too.  CD is on the way from ebay.

Parasites and Worms

I have some homegrown pomegranate fruits and researched to see how I could use them.

I found the following article on parasites and worms – and pomegranates help!  I have not decided what herbal cleanse I will be using.

But the pomegranate (and apple and mango) smoothie was delicious!


PARASITES AND WORMS by Katherine Fletcher

I know we don’t like to think about it, but we all have parasites and worms. Many of us don’t realize how much harm to the body these little critters can cause. Parasites and worms are also one of the major causes of stress and illness in the body.

Where Do We Get Parasite?

Parasites come from our food, water, pets, gardens and other sources. They are found world wide. Poor sanitation doesn’t help but we still can acquire worms through every day activities. Walking barefoot in the garden, contact with pets, meats, certain fruits and veggies (depending on the soil). Our water supply can also be infected, also swimming in lakes and oceans. Most parasites and worms are microscopic so we don’t visually see them. Worms can release as many as 200,000 eggs per day. Think about that for a minute.

Once they get in our body they can settle into our organs, sap our nutrition. The intestinal tract is the most common area for worms and parasites to settle. Parasites reproduce around the full moon so this is when we feel the effect the most. Our bodies may actually play host to over 100 different types of parasites.

Types of Parasites / Worms


It is estimated that 25% of the world’s population has roundworms. They get infections from consuming worm eggs found on fruits and veggies in contaminated soil.

Some of the symptoms of roundworms are intestinal gas, weight gain around full moon, digestive problems, fatigue, anemia, teeth grinding and blood sugar imbalances. Tapeworms

There are lots of different types of tapeworms and they can grow to be very large in the body. The usually source of tapeworms is pork, beef and also our pets. When they get in our intestines, the absorb all of our nutrients and the give off dangerous waste.

Some of the symptoms of tapeworms are thyroid and intestinal imbalances, blood sugar imbalances, jaundice, bloating, gas and a possible fluid build up during the full moon.


These are very small parasites that attach themselves to our organs. Some of these organs include the lungs, heart, intestines, brain, bladder, liver and blood vessels which can cause inflammation and damage. The eggs are tiny with protruding spines that cause damage as they move through the body. The main source of flukes is raw or under cooked fish or crab, infected veggies like water chestnuts or drinking and wading through infected water.

Single Cell parasites

These are also called Protozoans and these microscopic critters cause more harm than any other kind of parasite. Our immune systems usually naturally take care of these parasites, but if your body and immune system is weak, you have a better chance of having them. They are very resistant to dryness, chemicals and temperature which are everywhere in our society. Protozoans are found in the intestines, muscle tissue, digestive tract and lungs. They release toxins and tissue destroying enzymes. Infections caused by Protozoans are associated with arthritis, asthma, Hodgkin’s lymphoma, M.S., ovarian cysts, dermatitis, muscle diseases and more.


Herbal cleanses are great for getting rid of worms and parasites. I also recommend limiting or eliminating the amount of pork from your diet. This seems to be a huge source from our foods. Herbal cleanses should be started a week before the full moon, since parasites reproduce at the full moon. It is important to stay on a 4 to 5 week cleanse to ensure you get the next full moon to get rid of the remaining eggs. Some suggestions:

– eating raw pumpkin seeds to keep parasites away

– Garlic, thyme, cayenne also help with parasites.

– Milk Thistle and cloves are also great for parasites and restoring the digestive tract.

– Avoid sugar and alcohol and potato chips which parasites love and thrive on.

* pomegranates, cranberry juice, apple cider vinegar are good foods to control parasites

Pranic Breathing – Breathe To Live

It’s easy with practise, I think I have to practise a whole lot more.

I believe Stephen Co  (Book “Your Hands Can Heal You”) is talking about this Complete Breath.


The Science of Breath

By WRF in Alternative Therapies

Taken from, The Science of Breath, by Yogi Ramacharaka, 1904.

Breath is life! Life is absolutely dependent upon the act of breathing.

To breathe is to live, and without breath there is no life. Not only are the higher animals dependent upon breath for life and health, but even the lower forms of animal life must breathe to live, and plant life is likewise dependent upon the air for continued existence.

The infant draws in a long, deep breath, retains it for a moment to extract from it its life-giving properties, and then exhales it in a long wail, and then its life upon earth has begun. The old man gives a faint gasp, ceases to breathe, and life is over. From the first faint breath of the infant to the last gasp of the dying man, it is one long story of continued breathing. Life is but a series of breaths.

Breathing may be considered the most important of all of the functions of the body, for, indeed, all of the other functions depend upon it. A person may exist some time without eating; a shorter time without drinking; but without breathing his existence may be measured by a few minutes.

And not only are people dependent upon breath for life, but they are largely dependent upon correct habits of breathing for continued vitality and freedom from disease. An intelligent control of our breathing power will lengthen our days upon earth by giving us increased vitality and powers of resistance, and, on the other hand, unintelligent and careless breathing will tend to shorten our days, by decreasing our vitality and laying us open to disease.

In earlier civilizations people had no need of instruction in breathing. Like the lower animal and the child, people breathed naturally and properly, as nature intended them to do, but civilization has changed him us this and other respects. People have contracted improper methods and attitudes of walking, standing and sitting, which have robbed them of their birthright of natural and correct breathing. We have paid a high price for civilization. Today only some natives breathe naturally, unless they have been contaminated by the habits of the civilized man.

The percentage of civilized people who breathe correctly is quite small, and the result is shown in contracted chests and stooping shoulders, and diseases of the respiratory organs.

The Occidental teachings show that physical health depends upon correct breathing. The Oriental teachers not only admit that their Occidental brothers are right, but say that in addition to the physical benefit derived from correct habits of breathing, people’s mental power, happiness, self-control, clear-sightedness and even their spiritual growth may be increased by an understanding of the Science of Breath.

The yogi practices exercises by which he attains control of his body and is able to send to any organ or other part of his body an increased flow of vital force or ‘prana’ (vital life force), thereby strengthening and invigorating that part or organ. Oriental teachers know all that the Western teachers knows regarding the physiological effect of correct breathing, but they also know that the air contains more than oxygen, hydrogen and nitrogen, and that something more is accomplished than the mere oxygenating of the blood. The Oriental knows something about ‘prana,’ of which his Western brother is ignorant, and he is fully aware of the nature and manner of handling that great principle of energy, and its effect upon the human body and mind. He knows that by rhythmical breathing one may bring himself into harmonious vibration with nature, and aid in the unfoldment of his latent powers.

He knows that by controlled breathing he may not only cure disease in himself and others, but also practically do away with fear and worry and the baser emotions. ‘Prana’ is a Sanskrit term meaning Absolute Energy. A universal principle of energy or force, and that all energy or force is derived from that principle, or rather, is a particular form of manifestation of that principle. ‘Prana’ is a universal principle and is the essence of all motion, force or energy, whether manifested in gravitation, electricity, the revolution of planets, and all forms of life, from the highest to the lowest. It is the soul of Force and Energy in all their forms, and that principle which, operating in a certain way, causes the form of activity which accompanies Life.

This great principle is in all forms of matter and yet it is not matter. It is in the air, but it is not the air nor one of its chemical constituents. Animal and plant life breathe it in with the air, and yet if the air did not contain it not they would die even though they might be filled with air. It is taken up by the system along with the oxygen, and yet is not the oxygen.

In Genesis we read about, ‘the breath of the spirit of life,’ which some philosophers would say describes prana.

We are constantly inhaling air that is charged with prana, and are constantly extracting the latter from the air and appropriating it to our uses. Prana is found in its freest state in the atmospheric air, which when fresh is highly charged with it, and we draw it to us more easily from the air than from any other source. In ordinary breathing we absorb and extract a normal supply of prana, but by controlled and regulated breathing, generally known as Yogi breathing, we are enabled to extract a greater supply, which is stored away in the brain and nerve centers, to be used when necessary.

We store away prana, just as the storage battery stores electricity. The many powers and abilities that have often been demonstrated by people from the East is due largely to their knowledge of this fact and their intelligent use of this stored-up energy.

The Yogis know that by certain forms of breathing they establish certain relations with the supply of prana and may draw on the same for what they require. Not only do they strengthen all parts of their body in this way, but the brain itself may receive increased energy from the same source, and latent faculties within an individual may be developed. One who has mastered the science of storing away prana, either consciously or unconscious, often radiates vitality and strength which is felt by those coming in contact with him, and such a person may impart this strength to others, and give them increased vitality and health. What is called magnetic healing or laying on of hands is performed in this way, although many practitioners are not aware of the source of their power.

Western scientists have been dimly aware of this great principle with which the air is charged, but finding that they could find no chemical trace of it, or make it register on any of their instruments they have generally treated the Oriental theory with disdain. They could not explain this principle, and so denied it. They seem, however, to recognize that the air in certain places possesses a greater amount of ’something’ and sick people are directed by their physicians to seek such places in hopes of regaining lost health.

If we think of prana as being the active principle of what we call vitality, we will be able to form a much clearer idea of what an important part it plays in our lives. Just as oxygen is utilized in the blood system so is the supply of prana utilized by the nervous system. Prana is exhausted by our thinking, willing, acting and etc., and because of this constant replenishing is necessary. Every thought, every act, every effort of the will, every motion of a muscle, uses up a certain amount of what we would call nerve force, which is really a form of prana. To move a muscle the brain sends out an impulse over the nerves and the muscle contracts because of the available prana. It is again important to remember that the greatest portion of prana that people acquire comes to them from the air they inhale. This is why it is of the greatest importance that proper breathing is readily understood.

The Yogis classify respiration into four general methods:

  • High Breathing
  • Mid Breathing
  • Low Breathing
  • Yogi Complete Breathing

High Breathing is known in the Western world as Clavicular Breathing or Collarbone Breathing. A person breathing in this manner elevates the ribs and raises the collarbone and shoulders, at the same time drawing in the abdomen and pushing its contents up against the diaphragm, which in turn is raised. The upper part of the chest and lungs, which is the smallest, is used, and consequently but a minimum amount of air enters the lungs. This high breathing is the worst form of breathing.

Mid Breathing is also known as Rib Breathing, or Inter-Costal Breathing, and while less objectionable than High Breathing, is far inferior to either Low Breathing or to the Yogi Complete Breath. In Mid Breathing the diaphragm is pushed upward, and the abdomen drawn in. The ribs are raised somewhat, and the chest is partially expanded.

Low Breathing as a form of respiration is far better than either of the two proceeding forms, and many Western writers have extolled its merits and have exploited it under the names of Abdominal BreathingDeep Breathing, or Diaphragmatic Breathing. Although many Western authorities write and speak of this method as the best known from of breathing, the Yogis know it to be but a part of a system they know as The Complete Breath.

The Yogi Complete Breath includes all the good points of High BreathingMid Breathing and Low Breathing, with the objectionable features of each eliminated. It brings into play the entire respiratory apparatus, every part of the lungs, every air-cell, every respiratory muscle. The entire respiratory organism responds to this method of breathing and the maximum amount of benefit is derived from the minimum expenditure of energy. The chest cavity is increased to its normal limits in all directions and every part of the machinery performs it natural work and functions.

One of the most important features of this method of breathing, is the fact that the respiratory muscles are fully called into play, whereas in the other forms of breathing only a portion of these muscles are so used. In Complete Breathing, among other muscles, those controlling the ribs are actively used, which increases the space in which the lungs may expand, and also gives the proper support to the organs when needed. Another aspect of the Yogi Science of Breath, is to learn how to breathe through the nostrils, and overcome the common practice of mouth-breathing. Through the nostrils comes health and strength and through the mouth disease and weakness.


NOTOCHEMO’S CONCLUSION:  I have to practise more pranic breathing!

Ph Testing – Saliva – Urine – DIY – Are You Alkaline Or Acid?

Hubby does a ph (using urine) before and after every bicarbonate IV at Dr Royal.

Recently, they took his ph before but not after – REASON – he is already an 8 or 8.5 before he does the drip – he is in very healthy alkaline state.

Saliva is easy but we’ve been told urine is more accurate.  It’s easy to do.  Here’s a link and extract to help anyone interested.


Saliva PH test

The Saliva PH test is a simple test you can do to measure your susceptibility to cancerheart disease, osteoporosis, arthritis, and many other degenerative diseases.

How to Perform the Saliva pH Test

First, you must wait at least 2 hours after eating. Fill your mouth with saliva and then swallow it. Repeat this step to help ensure that your saliva is clean. Then the third time, put some of your saliva onto the pH paper.

The pH paper should turn blue. This indicates that your saliva is slightly alkaline at a healthy pH of 7.4. If it is not blue, compare the color with the chart that comes with the pH paper. If your saliva is acid (below pH of 7.0) wait two hours and repeat the test.”

Laetrile But Not In US – Thank Goodness For Dr Royal, Dr Tom Wu, Essiac, Angela Harris

Now I understand why laetrile is not available in US and why chemicals are prevalently used to treat cancer in the US.

This link and extract are a quick read, it helped me understand something else today that is so important to my health.


Why are Laetrile and many other substances used in alternative-cancer therapy not readily available in the U.S.?

The short answer is that these substances are not approved by the Food and Drug Administration. The full answer, however, is a bit more complex. The reason they do not carry approval is that they have not undergone the extensive FDA testing that all new drugs must pass before being approved for common use. That’s the law in the United States. This process takes years of research work, requires tens of thousands of pages of reports, and costs hundreds of millions of dollars. The only firms that can afford this are large pharmaceutical companies. Not even they will undertake such expense unless they can eventually make a profit through sales, and that means they must obtain a patent on the substance being tested. However, substances found in nature cannot be patented, only man-made chemicals and processes can. Since Laetrile and many other substances used in alternative-cancer treatments are found in nature, they cannot be patented. That means they will never be tested according to FDA protocol. Consequently, they will never be officially approved no matter how effective they may be. That is why you often hear it said that alternative cancer therapies are “unproven.” That is a very misleading statement. They may not have been proven by FDA protocol, but many of them definitely have been proven as both safe and effective by actual clinical experience in the treatment of thousands of cancer patients. Unfortunately, until the laws are changed, the only officially approved substances we will ever have for the treatment of cancer in the United States are man-made, patented chemicals!”


NOTOCHEMO’S CONCLUSION:  No to synthetics, no to chemo.

Pranic Breathing – Success?

Energized as usual.

Significant difference during the pulling away of palms – I felt a needle poke my left index finger, long enough for me to think, wow.

Hubby has been doing his pranic breathing every night before he sleeps – as part of his anticancer treatment, proper breathing will oxygenate properly.  Dr Tom Wu advocates chi-gong, which we tried at one time, but I think we were not quite ready for it, we could not follow the class.

Alkalize Water The Easy Way

Learned about this when we started anticancer journey.

This lemon and water thing is easy to do!



In the heat of the summer, we see people drinking gallons and gallons of pop, ice tea, ice frapacinos, you name it. There is nothing like home made lemonade for alkalizing on a hot summer day.

Juice fresh lemons till you have a full cup of lemon juice (or a bit more if you like it strong). Then boil up water, and put between a quarter cup to a half cup of honey in a large bowl. The amount is up to you, the more the sweeter. Mix in the boiling water, just a little, to melt all the honey. Then in a large pitcher, pour the honey mixture and lemon juice. Add up to 64 ounces (a half gallon) of water.

You can avoid the boiling if you substitute Maple Syrup or Agave Nectar for the honey, however, honey is the only alkalizing sweetener (though just slightly).

Let’s go over the ingredients ratios one more time:

½ Cup lemon juice to 32 oz of water, with ¼ to ½ cup honey (or substitute) depending on your taste.

To make this drink even better, you can thinly slice some lemons and add the slices. Then try this: slice up some fresh strawberries and add those.

Next, add the smallest pinch of pure Original Himalayan Crystal Salt ™, just to get a kick from it’s inherent energy.

And now you’ve got something. Refreshing, alkalizing, and when you’re through drinking, you still have some fresh strawberry slices to munch on.

Remember, the fewer chemicals in your food, the more alkalizing it is. This is why your best lemonade will be made from organic lemons.


Almost as cunningly simple in its title as ‘green drink’ – lemon water is quite blindingly straightforward in its makeup: it is water with lemon squeezed in. Could it be any easier?

The beauty of lemon water is that it is tasty, refreshing and best of all, alkalising. The lemon juice raises the alkalising effect of the water so even with standard tap water you can make your drink nice and alkalising.

However, for the full lemon water effect: distilled/ionised water withAlkalive’s pH booster (or Prime pH or another pH drop) and lemon creates the ultimate alkaline water. The trick however, is to have the water lukewarm. If the water is too hot or too cold then it will cause the body to expand energy in order to process it. Lukewarm water also has that comforting feeling to it…

I know a lot of you know about lemon water already, through reading/learning about alkalising or through Gillian McKeith (who also recommends lemon water on rising) – but it is always a good thing to reinforce the basics.”


CONCLUSION: The lemon to make water alkaline thing, I have heard about and I do it, because I enjoy that as a quick pick-me-up.  Hubby’s previous ayurvedic doctor recommended lemon and honey in the morning upon rising (and minus honey for people with candida etc.) I add lemon or lime to my morning smoothie –skin and all. – .After reading, I found the product mentioned, Alkalive at this link but I do not know the product, have never tried it, will ask hubby’s doctor.

Boost Your Immunity – DIY – Anti Infection – Antivrial – Anti Swine – Anti Anti Anti

This is a formula we make at home and have been using since our anticancer journey.  Hubby is doing well and I don’t generally get colds etc. so I can’t tell but when I compare it to store brands (and I looked them up in my herb encyclopedia), the ingredients are excellent for what they are supposed to do.

“Infection Fighter Formula

Use powdered herbs to capsulate or make a glycerin based extract

4 parts Goldenseal Root
3 parts Echinacea Angustafolia Root
2 parts Yarrow Flower
1 part Lobelia Herb


How to make Extracts or Tinctures

The basic rule is 4 parts liquid to 1 part powdered herb, or 4 parts liquid to 2 parts cut or whole herb.

Glycerin based extract:
2 parts Vegetable Glycerin
2 parts Distilled Water
1 part Powdered Herb (or 2 parts cut or whole herb)

Mix ingredients together in clean glass bottle with lid. Store out of the light. Shake 2 times a day for 10 days to 2 weeks. Strain through clean, unbleached muslin. Throw away herbs and keep liquid in a light-proof bottle. This will store for approximately 3 years.

Apple Cider Vinegar or Alcohol Extract:
4 parts Apple Cider Vinegar or 40 proof Alcohol
(like Vodka)
1 part Powdered Herb (or 2 parts cut or whole herb)

Mix ingredients together in clean glass bottle with lid. Store out of the light. Shake 2 times a day for 10 days to 2 weeks. Strain through clean, unbleached muslin. Throw away herbs and keep liquid in a light-proof bottle. This will store for approximately 7-10 years.”


In short, here’s what I do:

Herbs as above (goldenseal root is bright yellow and the most expensive, about $8-9 an ounce)

1 32 oz Braggs Apple Cider Vinegar

I large glass bottle

Small glass bottles with droppers

Hydrogen Peroxide (to clean the glass bottles)


For each part, we used tbsp as the measurement and one bottle 32 oz Braggs.  I use only Braggs Apple Cider Vinegar.

Very easy to make and a lot cheaper than buying store-ready.

This formula is totally credited to – a wonderful herbalist who cured herself of lupus and lymphoma.

STORAGE – We put our tincture into small amber glass bottles with droppers.

My picture shows the store-bought (from Angela’s store) for $29, 4 ounces.

The tincture is set in a cool place and hubby shakes it twice a day.

My loose herbs probably cost me (I bought 2 ounces of goldenseal toot) about no more than $25 and I get about at close to 3 bottles at 4 ounces or more (hubby does the final pouring) so I save a bunch.
