Healthy Body Cells Don’t Become Cancerous

DNA depiction

DNA is the “blueprint for cellular replication” so respecting our DNA in our lifestyle is a critical means of avoiding cancer

Not only do healthy body cells not become cancerous, but rogue cells in a healthy body usually do not become cancerous because of built in mechanisms that kill them off.     Physically mature adults have a total of about 100 trillion body cells. We replace cells at various rates depending upon the type and location. Skin cells reproduce very rapidly as do some cells in our digestive tract.   We have a “say” in the quality of the replacement cells.

 

Our DNA (unique genetic pattern) is like a blueprint for the new cells and replacement cells.   DNA can be damaged by lifestyle such as habitual sleep deficit, tobacco use, certain environmental and industrial toxin intake, nutrient deficiencies, prescription drugs, illicit drugs, certain rogue microbes or viruses, and persistent or intense mental/emotional stressors.   The science of Epigenetics (literally meaning “above genetics”) is disclosing specific links between lifestyle and genetic changes.

 

A cancer cell can result from improper replication of cells in various body tissues IF the “genetic blueprint” for one or more cells is altered or damaged.   This abnormal cell may or may not become a tumor cell.   If it does, it will replicate without fulfilling it’s “job description” within the tissue where it “lives”.   It will be a freeloader and may (if it is not stopped by built in protective systems inside a healthy body) and eventually invade surrounding tissue.   These cancer cells can trick the body to grow blood vessels toward it and can starve out the rest of the body.

 

A great many of these rogue cells occur but a low percentage go rogue successfully because, as mentioned earlier, the body has built-in mechanisms to make these bad cells “commit suicide” before they enter their rapid replication process. If cell suicide does not occur, then a healthy body’s immune system attacks them before they can make themselves invisible to that system. So cancer cells are unlikely if not impossible in a truly healthy body. As Henry W. Wright says in his best selling book, A More Excellent Way to Be in Health, “a healthy cell cannot become cancerous.”.   Ruth Sackman, in her well researched book, Re-Thinking Cancer, indicates that cancer is more a symptom of ill-health than a disease in and of itself.

 

Shane Ellison, MS, former pharmaceutical chemist and author of what a fantastic book entitled, Over the Counter Natural Cures, says “All cancer is normal cellular process that only leads to death when cells fail to commit suicide in response to some type of DNA damage. Ensuring proper cell suicide is ensuring that you don’t suffer from cancer.”

 

Obviously it makes sense to maintain physical and emotional health because, as I discuss at length in my book, Slam the Door on Cancer, the mind(emotion)/body connection is scientifically irrefutable and cannot be ignored regarding our health.   In the book, I also consider some other factors regarding the mind/body connection—factors nearly always ignored by allopathic (orthodox) medicine as well as by the faith-based community.

 

To avoid cancer it is critical to care for our DNA through healthy living (diet, sleep, water, sunshine, words, thoughts, etc.) . Additionally, we can supplement our diets, although not overcome a persistently poor diet or destructive habits, with some potent molecules found in foods and spices.

Below, I share a list of the foods rich in the molecules (nutraceuticals) that particularly boost “cell suicide” or “apoptosis” of rogue cells.   These also support the body’s production of NK cells or “Natural Killer Cells” that miraculously search out and destroy cancer or potential cancer cells.

 

FOODS AND SPICES THAT STIMULATE APOPTOSIS (CELL SUICIDE) and/or NATURAL KILLER CELLS:

Vegetables and fruits that stimulate apoptosis:

Cruciferous Vegetables (Cabbage, Cauliflower, Broccoli, Brussels Sprouts, etc)

Soy (Fresh broccoli sprouts can be grown in a glass jar for handy inexpensive nutrients.)

Bright colored vegetables and fruits rich in carotenoids like: carrots, yams, squash, pumpkins,

tomatoes, persimmons, apricots, beets. (Beets are very high in sugar and should be used in moderation. They are also mostly GMO so use caution in selecting your sources.)

Mushrooms such as shiitake, maitake, enokidake, cremini, portobello, oyster

Sea Vegetables such as NORI, kelp, dulse, kombu, wakame, arame (can be bought dried and sprinkled on foods in lieu of salt).

Go to this website for a more complete list of anti-cancer nutraceutical foods:

Spices that stimulate apoptosis:

Basil, Dill, Fennel, GARLIC, GINGER, Horseradish, Peppermint, Mustard seed, Nutmeg,

Paprika, Parsley, Red Pepper, ROSEMARY, Saffron, Sesame Seed, Thyme.

All Healing is Miraculous

All healing is miraculous.   We see it shortly after birth when the umbilical cord heals and drops off.  We see it as children with our first skinned knee.  We see it every day of our lives and yet we seriously doubt our innate ability to heal from “disease”.  “Medicine” is not a healer….it can be an emergency mechanism to hold status quo or improve status quo until the body’s innate healing mechanisms can “kick in”.   A surgeon can remove tissue and sow us back up, but he or she cannot actually make the remaining wounded tissue heal.   But we do heal and we take it for granted.

On the other hand, many of us default to counting on and crediting “medicine” with healing.   I hope you will watch the short video here to gain a more powerful perspective and to be encouraged.

Here, I want to share an excerpt from some conversations I had regarding empowering perspectives we can have facing disease.    How we see ourselves and the challenges a critical illness throws into our path.   I hope you will visit my online television page at www.gve-tv.com/Jacquie_Woodward where there are 18 short videos and some other videos I hope will encourage you.   I am NOT selling anything in any of these short videos.  They are meant to encourage and inform.   We overcome by the blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony.

When I was battling cancer, I was emboldened by the testimonies of others who had kicked cancer’s butt.  I wasn’t looking for “temporary victory” as I saw in the word, “remission”.   I was looking for and found full blown health.  I hope to encourage others to set such a goal because it is always reachable.

I believe it’s important to realize that others have come all the way through the kinds of challenges we face.

Some Prescription Drugs Can Deplete Vitamins

Every prescription brings "other effects" and some are stealth.

Every prescription brings “other effects” and some are stealth.

Good Health is a balancing act and sometimes stealth issues are keeping us out of balance.  Loss of vitamins needed for critical bodily functions can be one of those hidden issues if we take prescription drugs.  We may be so used to depending on man-made chemicals “for our health”  that we overlook the “big picture”.  

“Unless we put medical freedom into the constitution, the time will come when medicine will organize itself into an undercover dictatorship. To restrict the art of healing to one class of men and deny equal privileges to others will constitute the Bastille of medical science. All such laws are un-American and despotic.”
Dr. Benjamin Rush, Physician and
Signer of Declaration of Independence, 1776

We are about two and one-half centuries beyond Dr. Rush’s statement and we are living in a day when the practice of medicine is a totally different undertaking than in Dr. Rush’s day. Having been married to a classically trained physician for 50 years and, therefore, in a position to watch medical “care” change from being half art and half science to being neither, I have spent a great deal of time contemplating this reality.

In her great book, Re-Thinking Pasteur’s Germ Theory, Nancy Appleton writes: “Recently I asked an acquaintance if he believed he was healthy. His immediate answer was, “Yes, of course.” “However, . . . I found out he controls his high blood pressure with a prescription drug and takes antacids frequently for an upset stomach. Since his symptoms are controlled by medication, he thought he was in good health.” (p9)

I agree with Ms Appleton who went on to say that what we experience when medicating to mask symptoms is not health. High blood pressure and upset stomach’s are not cured by the prescription drugs but temporarily hidden by them so that the ultimate cause goes unaddressed. Thus is the modern medical culture. We recite symptoms to a doctor who matches them to a recommended prescription drug. The cause is always there but ignored.

However, I assure you, the symptoms don’t exist because the body is “short” of a prescription

Make sure your prescription drug is not costing you valuable vitamins.

Make sure your prescription drug is not costing you valuable vitamins.

drug—any prescription drug. The symptom is there because something is “out of balance” and it might be bio-chemical or it might be electrical, or it might be the result of complex imbalance due to emotional matters and so forth.

Surely, having watched so many pharmaceutical advertisements on TV warning of “possible side effects”, none of us are so naïve as to think we are getting away ‘scott free’ from ‘other effects’ that come with every man-made chemical swallowed. I elaborate more on these issues in my books. However, in this post I wanted to share information about an “other effect” from taking pharmaceuticals that few are aware of — the depletion of vitamins and minerals from our bodies due to these ingested chemicals.

Why is such depletion matter? Vitamins and minerals are absolutely essential for health—indeed for survival. I speak of the components of good food because vitamins aren’t merely another pill that “makes up for letting our kids eat mostly junk food ” or “enables silver haired people to ride bicycles” as multi-vitamin commercials sometimes imply. Manufactured vitamins and minerals are not complete molecules and of little real use. They can be harmful and they do not make up for living a careless lifestyle any more than prescription drugs do. Eventually, we lose our bio-chemical balance and health.

I don’t think it’s a stretch to say that Dr. Benjamin Rush would be appalled at seeing patients carrying bags of 20 or 30 different pharmaceuticals through their doctor’s waiting rooms. Surely he would be appalled at the minimal dialogue between physicians and patients as well as the fact that the manufacturers of those drugs educate all the doctors. After all, the scenario he described in the above quote has come to pass because the powerful medical/petro-chemical establishment has established a powerful “bastille” for their industry.

Considering loss of vitamins, what’s the big deal? Vitamins, in their complete natural form, enable our bodies to use the food we eat in ways that enable the countless complex functions to be coordinated at the cellular level. They act as catalysts for most all critical bodily functions. Consequently, I am compelled to share a link to a fairly comprehensive chart that can help you realize certain shortages you may be experiencing if you are taking prescription drugs. I am NOT advocating you stop taking medicine a doctor has prescribed. If you are at peace with your protocol, I respect your decision. Sometimes medicines help people through certain situations.

I just wanted to help you gather information that may help you deal with “other effects” of those medicines.

Below are a few examples of some commonly prescribed drugs and a list of the nutrients that are automatically depleted.

Anti-inflammatory drugs deplete: Calcium, potassium, zinc, iron, Vitamins B6, C, D, K, folic acid, chromium, glutathione, Vitamins B6, C, D, and K

NSAIDs: Folic acid, melatonin

Aspirin/Salicylates: Vitamins C, K, B5, folic acid, calcium, iron and sodium

Corticosteroids: Vitamins A, C, D, B6, B12, folic acid, calcium, magnesium, potassium, selenium and zinc

Cochicine (used for gout): Vitamin B12, calcium, sodium, potassium, phosphorus, Beta-carotene

Statins (Lipitor, Zocor, Crestor,etc.): Coenzyme Q10

ACE Inhibitors for hypertension (Lisinopril, etc.): Zinc

Walk Through the Healing Door BEFORE You Slam It!

Jesus opened the door to healing but we MUST walk through it in faith.  Then we can slam the door in the face of disease

Jesus opened the door to healing but we MUST walk through it in faith. Then we can slam the door in the face of disease

Jesus, through His teaching and His death and resurrection, opens so many wonderful doors of opportunity to those who believe that we are who He says we are and that He is who He says He is.   Jesus opened the door to forgiveness, and He opened the door to healing for those who not only believe in Him but those who believe Him.

 

He flung these doors wide open for us and told us that no man can shut them against God’s beloved. (See Rev 3:8)  But we MUST walk through these doors of blessing by using God’s kind of faith and, once we do, our enemy cannot follow.   Why is my book entitled Slam the Door on Cancer and Lock It Out of Your Life? Because, once we walk through the open door of healing and take God at His word, then we are in a safe place “on earth as in heaven” (See Mt 6:10).

 

If we stay in that intimate place with Jesus, He makes sure the enemy is locked out of our lives.   Do we have to live a perfect life to stay there? No, we fully and simply embrace our loving relationship with our Lord—knowing He loves each of us unconditionally and loving Him back.   I am in contact with many believers who are not aware of God’s love for them individually and who believe they are unworthy of healing. This obstacle must be removed because it is a lethal lie!

 

Now, let’s look at what I found in Scripture about “God’s kind of faith” and then we’ll look into God’s word that assures us that Jesus has opened the door to healing. These are truly important insights because we learn in Hebrews 11:1:  Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.  (KJV)

 

In Let’s examine Mark 11: 22-23 in a literal translation because verse 23 is usually mistranslated to read “faith

Have the Faith OF God! Pray for it and receive it.

Have the Faith OF God!
Pray for it and receive it.

in God”. However, it is the “Faith of God, as Charles S. Price powerfully teaches in the classic book, Real Faith for Healing, we must employ faith that we procure as a gift from God rather than trying to muster it up by striving.   We persist in prayer asking God for His kind of faith in order to step into the power Jesus describes for us here:
22  And Jesus answering says to them, `Have faith of God;
23  for verily I say to you, that whoever may say to this mount, Be taken up, and be cast into the sea, and may not doubt in his heart, but may believe that the things that he says do come to pass, it shall be to him whatever he may say.
(KJV)

 

I will add that the verses that follow these instruct us, before we pray for our faith, to forgive anyone we may hold offense against. Doing so will expedite the release of your faith. Not doing so will block it—Jesus was clear on that point.   We cannot bolster our faith with human will power. It is a free gift for the asking.

 

The first Scripture I want to share regarding Jesus’s assurance that the door to healing is as open as the door to forgiveness.   I memorized these Psalm 103 verses and was tremendously strengthened as I spoke them aloud into the atmosphere often.   I relied on God’s promise in Isaiah 55:11 that: so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.” I know that my healing of soul and body was in that “purpose” because I decreed God’s word: Psalm 103:1-3 (NIV)
1

 Praise the LORD, O my soul; all my inmost being, praise his holy name.
2  Praise the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits–
3  who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases,

 

The incredible revelation in Psalms 103 is that, are you ready for this….ALL means ALL! And the tense of this Psalm is present tense.   ALL and NOW!   Take that in because it is a God promise, but it does none of us any good unless we receive it in faith……God’s kind of faith.

 

Finally, three powerful Scripture witnesses that Jesus opened the door of healing to us. If you have been wrongly taught (and many have) regarding the truth of this Scripture, I implore you to consult F.F. Bosworth’s classic book, Christ the Healer. He will take you through the original language in a lucid way and it will open up a Scriptural door to save your life.

By His Stripes You ARE Healed!

By His Stripes You ARE Healed!

 

Three Scriptural witnesses that physical healing IS already yours:

 

Isaiah 53:1-5 (YLT)
1  Who hath given credence to that which we heard? And the arm of Jehovah, On whom hath it been revealed?
2  Yea, he cometh up as a tender plant before Him, And as a root out of a dry land, He hath no form, nor honour, when we observe him, Nor appearance, when we desire him.
3  He is despised, and left of men, A man of pains, and acquainted with sickness, And as one hiding the face from us, He is despised, and we esteemed him not.
4  Surely our sicknesses he hath borne, And our pains–he hath carried them, And we–we have esteemed him plagued, Smitten of God, and afflicted.
5  And he is pierced for our transgressions, Bruised for our iniquities, The chastisement of our peace is on him, And by his bruise there is healing to us.

 

1 Peter 2:24 (YLT)
24  who our sins himself did bear in his body, upon the tree, that to the sins having died, to the righteousness we may live; by whose stripes ye were healed,

 

Matthew 8:17 (YLT)
17  that it might be fulfilled that was spoken through Isaiah the prophet, saying, `Himself took our infirmities, and the sicknesses he did bear.’

 

Please realize the tense that Isaiah used (present) and Peter used (past) to indicate that our healing has already been and continues to be “bought and paid for” by Jesus within His finished atonement. Many times, people try to blame God for sickness and, in doing so, try to construe the Isaiah and 1 Peter Scriptures to mean “spiritual healing” rather than physical healing. However, in misinterpreting Isaiah and 1 Peter , these unfortunate folks are not allowing the Bible to interpret the Bible because Matthew 8:17 removes all doubt as to the meaning of these prophesies that Jesus absolutely fulfilled.

 

Through His “Beloved Son”, God forgives ALL iniquities and heals ALL diseases and we can appropriate that healing by walking through the open door of healing. How? Each person must tune into God to find out how God wants to manifest their healing and health as well as to find out how to cooperate with God in their individual healing adventure.

 

I share my own “interactive miracle” in Slam the Door on Cancer and Lock It Out of Your Life. I urge you to strongly contend for the healing Jesus has provided for you.   No other person can do this for you. Those who obtain their healing and keep it are individuals who know how much God loves them and that Jesus has obliterated the cursed source of disease with His own body and blood. They seek and seize the “God kind of faith” which begins with prayer asking for such faith and meditating on God’s word to bring that truth into their very own body and soul.

Bill Henderson Again Shares Hopeful Anti-Cancer Information

 

Being healed from life threatening disease is pure joy!

Several times I’ve mentioned cancer crusader Bill Henderson’s tireless work to help people move toward victory over cancer without the horror of conventional cancer treatment.   Shortly, in this post, I will share a link from Bill’s eNewsletter which is an article/testimony of being healed from pancreatic cancer.   The writer will introduce himself.

Most people don’t realize that their treatment decisions are theirs rather than the “experts” they encounter.   Our healing, indeed our lives, depend on what we know, what we believe, and what we will endeavor to do in order to restore our health.

I have often written on this blog that “health is THE cure for cancer” and I’ve avoided chasing rabbit trails within the “cure mentality” because there are many and some are nonsense.  

I’ve encouraged you to avoid thinking of cancer as “some alien other” we need to kill.  I am going to share a link, here, to a wonderful article written by a radio personality who wants use only the name “Cory” so that he isn’t overrun with calls and emails.  

I think you will find this article very encouraging.

Happy New Year to All my Real Health Hope readers.

Can Your Body Become Immune to Cancer?

 

  I believe there is a very good case to be made that the answer to this post’s title question is YES!

The innate intelligence of our “Immune Systems”  can keep cancer, indeed disease, totally away!

 

 

I would take it a step further to say I believe our “selves” can be maintained in a way that makes us immune to all disease.  I don’t mean immune to being attacked by disease mechanisms, but I believe we can sustain health that enables us to smack down disease before it can take hold.

To reach a persistent healthy state, all three aspects of a human’s “being” must be involved.  That is, spirit, soul (mind, will, emotions) and body.  We are three part beings and these “parts” cannot operate independently although both medicine and religion endeavor to separate them.  I explain in Slam the Door on Cancer the historical basis for this unfortunate effort.   In this post, I’ll move beyond focusing on that issue.
Spiritual “Health”:
Remembering that this is a Christian blog, I must consider Biblical Scripture as our truth.  And we are living under the “new and better covenant” God “cut” with Jesus on our behalf (so that imperfect people can’t mess it up as they did under the Old Testament).  
 I encourage you to read Hebrews 8 regarding what our Lord has done to assure that we are no longer under the curse of Old Testament Law.  The letter to Galatians also clarifies this point:    [Galatians 3:13 (AMP)   Christ purchased our freedom [redeeming us] from the curse (doom) of the Law [and its condemnation] by [Himself] becoming a curse for us, for it is written [in the Scriptures], Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree (is crucified); ]
 Jesus stood in for us and brought us to a place where His spirit will live in those who invite it in.  We can trust His perfect spirit to make our spiritual health beyond reproach.  If you are still living under Old Testament condemnation, it opens your spirit, soul, and body up to the enemy’s attacks of sickness.   Jesus’s blood covers ALL sin.  I encourage you to review the epistle of 1 John.     Spiritual freedom is “finished” on the cross.    
Soul “Health”:
In my own healing adventure of overcoming pancreatic cancer years ago, I did enormous research that I consistently share with my blog readers.  I found that the body and soul are absolutely biochemically linked.  Emotions stimulate certain bio-chemicals to be released into the blood and carried to body cells where there are specific receptors on every cell membrane for these chemicals.  Consequently body function at the cellular level where disease like cancer happens is altered by emotionally triggered chemicals.  
What are the “make your body cells sick” emotions?  Persistent bitterness, resentment, unforgiveness, guilt, hate, fear, feelings of helplessness, all kinds of insults, etc etc !   In other words negative emotions that are suppressed or unresolved inescapably cause a cascade of physical events that eventually trick our precious immune system to brew up chronic inflammation within our bodies that undermines our bodily health in severe ways.  
 
 Adding pharmaceuticals to mask the inflammation symptoms is like removing the bulb of the warning light on an automobile dashboard.  The causeremains active.
Jesus’s soul was “poured out unto death” (Isaiah 53:12) on the cross and He there modeled forgiveness (essential for soul healing).  We often overlook the many facets of His work on the cross, but our soul health is a part of our health inheritance through our Lord.  The glory light–the dunamis power–of His resurrection is in us so that we can resolve any emotional upheaval through the guidance of the gospel of peace. 
 
 Jesus’s last earthly words regarded His giving us His peace.   The gospel of John (especially Chapter 14) is a good place to study this truth as is this profound truth in Romans 8:11 (AMP)   “And if the Spirit of Him Who raised up Jesus from the dead dwells in you, [then] He Who raised up Christ Jesus from the dead will also restore to life your mortal (short-lived, perishable) bodies through His Spirit Who dwells in you.”
It would follow that our goal is not separating soul from spirit but purifying both with the Word of God. [Note:  I discuss in Slam the Door on Cancer how Hebrews 4:12 is often incorrectly translated from the original Greek regarding this point.]
Bodily “Health”:
Obviously, physical health has an emotional component as I’ve just shared.  In fact, both our emotional and physical health can be tremendously impacted by “natural” aspects of living–diet, sleep habits, exercise, recreational rest, laughter, water intake, etc.   Even”modern medicine”  may admit that “stressful living” impacts physical health.
 
Stressful living is a state in which our “body/mind” or “body/soul” is either getting too much “stuff” that harms it or not enough of the “stuff” it requires to operate efficiently.     The issue can be reduced to the old cliché “garbage in — garbage out” except defining “garbage” is the catch.   
We CAN make our bodies immune to cancer–indeed to “dis-ease” and subsequent disease in one simple way.  We have no choice but to define “garbage” the same way our immune system does–we can’t change the definition.   The immune system’s job is to “read” whether input material is “self” or “non-self”. 
 
 Is the input material a “toxin”–something the hard working immune system must try to erradicate through the process of inflammation?  Or is it material composed of molecules body cells require to make the “stuff” such as fresh new body cells or the products of body cells such as hormones, enzymes, energy, etc. that we absolutely cannot live out our intended lifespans without?  
“Toxins” also include negative thoughts, words, and emotions not” taken captive” as Scripture advises–again linking body and soul health.  But it’s not merely a matter of avoiding toxic emotions; it’s necessary to “think on good things” just as it’s critical to input sufficient food and water that cells can use in creating health.
 
 




Practical Immune System Insights


Welcome Back!  I hope your Christmas was Joyful and Restful and your New Year is filled with Real Health Hope in body, soul and spirit.

I have started 2015 by having an article accepted by

Ezinearticles.com –a website that features articles in many categories including cancer and other health topics.

I hope you will visit the Ezine site and and read the entire article.  I’m including the Title, Category and Summary below to let you know a bit more about it:

Title:
Cancer Loves It When An Immune System Forgets Its Job Description
Category: 
Cancer
Summary: 

The immune system’s innate “job” is that of a sort of “911 first responder” which means it mobilizes to deal with traumatized body tissue or wound emergencies.    However, sustained repetitive trauma changes the “first responder” to a “long-term care wannabe”.   Inflammation becomes chronic rather than short-term, and cancer often takes advantage.


The “immune system” is meant for temporary emergency action.  Keeping it turned on permanently is dangerous to health.  Purposely damaging it with drugs is like turning off the water supply to a sprinkler system then starting a fire.


If you have read my book, Slam the Door on Cancer and Lock It Out of Your Life, you know how important it is for each of us to keep our amazing immune system working within their “job description” and I expand on that topic in the article.    The Ezine article looks at the issues that trick our awesome immune system into becoming a “workaholic” which leads to potentially deadly chronic inflammation.    

Such inflammation is, in fact, the basis for nearly all disease including cancer, diabetes, heart disease, MS etc. etc.  I can’t repeat the article here; however, I want to give you the “quick and dirty” list of things in our lifestyle that, if allowed to persist, WILL cause an unhealthy hotbed of inflammation that cancer loves.

The causes are habits or patterns or repeated traumas/insults that release the same chemicals into the blood that send a “first responder” immune system into working out its innate “job description”as a wound or trauma mediator.  The potentially lethal inflammatory issues occur when the immune system tries to answer repetitive “911 calls” stimulated by such things as (Of course this list cannot be comprehensively detailed) :

  • repeated persistent exposure to environmental toxins in food, water, air (including manufactured/processed “foods” the immune system “reads” as poison).
  • consistent intake of SUGAR and foods with high glycemic index (foods that convert quickly to sugar).
  • persistent mental or emotional stress (including verbal abuse, feelings of helplessness, resentment, bitterness, shame, guilt, fear, worry, etc.)
  • repeated persistent physical trauma (improper exercise, tissue damage, etc.)
  • habitual shallow breathing 
  • certain drugs, pharmaceuticals individually or improperly combined (prescription and/or over-the-counter medicines)
  • poor sleep habits (damaging DNA)
  • impure drinking water (including legal municipally sourced water not further filtered or distilled)
  • deliberate use of substances such as tobacco, alcohol, and “artificial sweeteners”
  • persistent repetition of negative words/expectations–even in jest  (i.e. “My father died of cancer so I expect I will too.”)
I hope you see the pattern in this list.  ALL of these things, if they are repeated or allowed to go unchecked indefinitely, are “make you sick stuff”.    We do NOT get sick because we lack a certain manufactured pharmaceutical in our bodies.  We get sick because we unknowingly undermine our absolutely powerful and amazing “immune systems” by essentially calling on it 100% of the time. 

Rather than saving it for emergencies such as accident injuries, an occasional argument or emotional shock, a “virus going around”, or other threat, we do or don’t do something that continuously “dials 911″.    The immune system faithfully responds until it is exhausted and we may even add fuel to the fire (and it is an internal “fire”) by adding even more manufactured chemicals (medicines) that mask the symptoms for a while.   

We will talk more about this topic in upcoming posts.  But don’t let your heart be troubled.    Our loving Creator has built in a wonderful opportunity to put all this threatening inflammation our of our lives so that the awesome “immune system” He included as standard equipment can keep to its “job description” and we can live in health.    There IS real health hope.    Stay tuned!










You CAN Live Without Fear of Cancer –Indeed Without Fear of Disease

Below, I share several very encouraging notes received from readers of my book, Slam the Door on Cancer and Lock It Out of Your Life.  I pray these comments will help you see that this book can open new hope and encouragement for anyone who wants to prevent or overcome cancer–or any disease attack.  The book is available on this website in paperback and pdf forms and each order received a bonus CD from one of my recent seminars.  It is also available NOW in Kindle and paperback forms from www.amazon.com .
Slam the Door on Cancer is among the best books ever written on how to prevent and avoid a disease that has destroyed countless lives. Jacquie writes from both personal experience and the latest research on the topic. Highly recommended.”

“This book is definitely a must-have for EVERYONE who desires to live life on earth, in health! For me, it brought me closer to my Creator God, and loving Savior, Jesus in a deeper, most profound relationship, as I realized it IS God’s will for us to be healed and whole. The book is full of scriptures, guiding you to spend quality and quantity time with God in prayer, His Word, and by using quantum physics, nutrition, some supplements, I found out we can be a huge part of a healing inter-active miracle for the “Goliath of disease, cancer,” and any disease! I praise Jacquie Woodward for writing this book, which has been such a blessing to me, has brought me valuable information for healing, and is also chock full of resources for additional research. Easy to understand, yet full of depth and revelation, it is a real eye opener – a book worth having!”

“This book is exactly what I’d been searching (and praying) for. To be honest, I bought other books on natural and alternative treatments for cancer, and I just couldn’t get past the first couple chapters. These other books were lacking the one thing I needed most in my own journey of slamming the door on cancer, and that was the guidance and leading of the Holy Spirit. This book is so much more than a book on nutritional guidance for overcoming cancer, or the personal story of an author’s victory over this disease. It seems to have been written by the very mouthpiece and heart of God. This book is a must-read and absolutely cannot be passed up.”

Slam The Door On Cancer is a must read to anyone seeking answers to their questions concerning cancer. In this book Jacquie Woodward brings to light the possible causes, cures and preventative measures to enable you to walk in divine health. She has done all of the homework for you as she collaborates extensive scientific research with scripture. I see this book being more of a “healing manual” than an informative read and I am confident that multitudes will be healed and enabled to lock cancer out of their life as they read its contents. I would recommend this book to anyone in need of healing and I feel it is a perfect adjunct to my own healing ministry as it “scientifically” proves the principles found in the Word of God! I LOVE THIS BOOK!!!!!”

I read the book as soon as I could download it from Amazon! Having experienced fourth stage Lymphoma and also invasive breast cancer, I thought the book would now become my gift to all friends diagnosed with any type of this dreaded disease. Jacquie’s thorough research both scientifically and spiritually is so expertly written. Her scriptures and her beliefs coupled with her positive optimistic outlook for her full recovery filled me with renewed hope! I could never have written it but feel blessed to have such a friend who could express what we all feel so well. It is truly and amazing inspiration!

“I found Jacquie’s book to be refreshingly insightful into how I think about and view cancer. It is a book of HOPE. It really gave me a lot to think about, as far as my attitudes and thought processes about all diseases. I had to ask myself how I viewed both disease and healing. The reality that thoughts, attitudes, and spoken words (particularly the Word of God) will affect our health and destiny is both scary and exciting. This book gave me a lot to think about. It’s definitely a unique and think-outside-of-the-box approach that puts more of the patient in charge of their health and future! Too many times, patients feel a lack of control, while hopelessly relying on Dr.’s and drugs. Thanks, Jacquie, for giving people hope. For our HOPE is in the LORD!
Best wishes spreading the book and the message!

“What a fresh, different perspective on utilizing God’s help to rid myself of cancer! I truly wish I had read this book much sooner in my journey towards wellness. I am convinced healing would be much closer to me now if I had read it sooner.”

“Both the religious and non-religious will learn amazing life-changing truths in Slam the Door on Cancer. Jacquie Woodward’s book is more extensive and inclusive than the long-craved “theory of everything” (ToE), for her book combines the realities of theology, psychology, sociology, biology, physics, and more. This invaluable book shows how to harness real intentional power over sickness and disease to achieve holistic health and wholeness. Within days after reading this book, I have shown it to several of my family, friends, and co-workers so they, too, can be well and free from disease.”

I’m very grateful to these readers for sharing their insights and reactions to this book.  When I was deep in my own battle with pancreatic cancer nearly a decade ago, I prayed I would recover and become an encourager to others attacked by this disease….indeed, ALL disease, because I have learned that how sickness manifests is not as limiting as why it shows up.    The causes of ill-health are quite controllable if we are aware of them and participate in our healing……or in the prevention of dis-ease.      BUY NOW AT WWW.AMAZON.COM

Laughter is “Internal Jogging” and Works Against Chronic Inflammation

There is nothing like laughter to raise the level of health in both body and soul.  I recall realizing I was joking with caregivers even on the darkest days in the hospital.  One of them told me later she knew I’d make it because of that sense of humor.   When people ask “what can I do to help?”  The best answer is “tell me a good wholesome joke and make me laugh”.   It IS the BEST medicine!


Laughter is “Internal Jogging”
A rejoicing heart doth good to the body, And a smitten spirit dries the bone. (Proverbs 17:22, YLT)
We know that “rejoicing” can include a healing attitude of gratitude. Further, the Hebrew root for “gratitude” includes the words “joy and glee” which surely result in laughter. And the often-overlooked admonishment that “a smitten spirit dries the bone” points to moving body fluids around so that all tissue including the bones can be irrigated properly. Such irrigation would, of course, include the bone marrow where stem cells originate for new body cells. We are focused on replacing diseased cells with healthy cells, which means we need “joyfully irrigated” bone marrow. Science and Scripture fit hand in glove as this Proverb illustrates.
In his often quoted book, Anatomy of an Illness, Norman Cousins shares his testimony of using laughter therapy for overcoming a life threatening disease. He says, “What was significant about the laughter was not just the fact that it provides internal exercise for a person flat on his or her back– a form of jogging for the innards – but that it creates a mood in which the other positive emotions can be put to work too. In short, it helps make it possible for good things to happen.” 3
Henry W. Wright, in A More Excellent Way to be in Health, writes, “Do you know laughter can strengthen the immune system? It has been documented. Laughter causes the body to manufacture T cells and (natural) killer cells.” 4 He concludes also: “The immune system is compromised because of fear and anxiety coming out of a broken heart.” 5 This point is pertinent to our discussions of reaction to “insult”.
I agree with Cousins and Wright. Cousins mentions watching videos of great comedy figures such as Charlie Chaplin and humorists such as Ogdon Nash and James Thurber. I enjoy Bill Cosby, Jeannie Robertson, Taylor Mason, Thor Ramsey, Michael Jr., Chonda Pierce, Anita Renfroe, et al available on digital media and YouTube. I urge you to “start laughing” now and begin to realize that your “inner swamp” is changing into a “cascade of vitality”.

We know that our eyes (and ears) are “windows of our souls” so it is important to avoid media that transmits negative or “dark” energy into our atmosphere. For me, that includes minimizing exposure to news media and online social media. I’ve read that the average person today is exposed to more bad news in a day than they were in a year just five decades ago. I promise you there was plenty of bad news then, but media did not need to fill airwaves 24/7.
