Healing Energy–Touch is More than a “Warm Fuzzy”

Although it’s been years now, I still vividly recall lying in the post surgery ICU of a top level oncology hospital and craving the loving touch of my family members who kept a “waiting room vigil” only to be allowed to “see me” briefly and infrequently. I was in and out of a coma but I knew one thing for certain. I needed the touch of my loved ones. I know now that my life depended on the electrons their touch could transfer to my body that was nearly depleted of energy due to pharmaceutical intake and isolation from life-giving resources.

Recently I shared a short excerpt from my book, “Slam the Door on Cancer”, on by blog at www.slamthedooroncancer.com . In that post, I mentioned several Scriptural and secular references regarding the importance of our healing touch. I hope you will check out that short post if you have not yet. The science is profound but the Word of God gives it credence not obtainable elsewhere. And, of course, the “science” is God’s own design.

In this post I want to look at the basis of that power in human touch from a “science perspective” because it is literally a “high voltage” healing mechanism. We are biochemical beings in our body/souls and “modern medicine” is honed in on this chemistry much to the exclusion of our equally important bioelectrical state of being. We should not wonder that chemical therapy makes us deathly ill . . . and, oddly, most people don’t even stop to think about this issue when they “sign on” for it. I will also share ways to “recharge the power in our touch” by boosting our own electron balance.

Recently, a friend whose adult child has entered the “chemo-therapy/radiation” protocol doctors recommended for post surgery cancer treatment, expressed how disturbed she was at the orders to not hug her daughter because the treatment so weakened her immune system that human contact was being denied this beloved child. I began to pray even more fervently for insight and discernment for these treasured folks using Paul’s prayers in Ephesians 1 and 3.

I reflected upon the many hours I’d spent in oncology waiting rooms awaiting lab tests and scans during the months directly following my own cancer surgery. So much fear and anxiety and evidence of treatment “side effects” and just so much dull gray fatigue in the atmosphere! Conversation amongst many of God’s stricken beloved, sharing a kindred burden, compared what “the doctors had told them”. This “mantra” always included: “stay out of the sunshine”; “eat only cooked foods”; “always wear the surgical mask and avoid human contact”, etc. Faith was stifled by fear and isolation.

If you’ve read “Slam the Door on Cancer” or followed either of my blogs for very long, you know my compelling interest

Michelangelo's painting of God's hand reaching near man's is quite prophetic of the electron transfer we can experience.

Michelangelo’s painting of God’s hand reaching near man’s is quite prophetic of the electron transfer we can experience.

in all the insights we are getting from quantum science opening up to us in just the past century and largely ignored by “conventional modern medicine” perhaps due to its financial alignment with the chemical industry.

Quantum science is all about energy and matter. Einstein proved that relationship. Our bodies are “matter” and life is fueled by “energy” at the cellular level. Insights for healthy living abound as we learn the role of our bioelectric aspects—especially electrons. I see many links to Jesus’s ministry in quantum science—the things we “saw darkly” are now being clarified.(1 Cor 13:12)

It’s undeniable that our brain and nerves function electrically and our hearts beat because of an electrical impulse. Every cell of our bodies, if healthy, generates electrical energy fueling the work the cells do and the work (and play) that we do. We were created with a “healthy voltage” that we can maintain or replenish (or not). Lifestyle (and chemical intake) can rob us of this power forcing us into the chronic “dis-ease state”. Electrons (atomic particles in all molecules) are our “ground zero” energy “instruments”. Incidentally, electrons are particularly sabotaged by every single part of the “fear based waiting room mantra” I cited earlier.

I intend to write more about this subject in the future; however, I wanted to introduce a few practical points here.

“Chronic disease is always defined by having low (body) voltage. One cannot cure chronic disease without inserting enough electrons to achieve -50mV. One must have the raw materials necessary to make new cells and to eliminate the toxins or infections present that will damage the new cells. You can take all of the medications you like and do as much surgery as you like, but you will not heal unless you have -50mV (millivolts), raw materials (nutrients) and lack of toxins.” (source: Dr. Jerry L. Tennant, M.D. in “Healing is Voltage: The Handbook”).

The human body, of course, is mostly water and most of us know water is two parts hydrogen and one part oxygen. Turns out that low body voltage causes the oxygen “part” to leave our cells. How long can you hold your breath? Cells can’t do without oxygen either—except cancer cells that ferment rather than oxidize nutrients.

What can we do to maintain healthy body voltage level? Electrons, the “stuff” of voltage, naturally flow from areas of high voltage to areas of low voltage. So is health maintenance a matter of bringing more electrons flowing into our bodies and hindering electrons leaving us? It is and doing so involves lifestyle!

1. Touching (like hugs) transfers electrons from one person to another—from the person with higher voltage to the person with lower voltage. Of course this can be part of a “healing touch” and the “healthy person” can replenish electrons through lifestyle.

BUT THERE IS MORE!

2. Since our bodies are 70+% water, of course water intake is critical (Quantity and Quality). Drinking acidic water—“tap water”, chlorinated water, fluoridated water, most commercially packaged water etc. robs us of electrons rather than providing them. Alcoholic, caffeinated, carbonated, and otherwise processed beverages are “anti-electron” in our metabolism. We get electrons from ionized water (obtained from clean wells or through specialized (and often expensive filters) or well-filtered water (I use an inexpensive countertop Zero Water Filter) that comes with a digital meter.

3. Raw organic foods are essential and potent electron suppliers. I recently posted about labeling to look for on my www.slamthedooroncancer.com blog. Cooked and processed foods not only do not provide electrons but those that contain chemical additives cause additional electron loss.

4. Exposure to wind and air conditioning stimulates loss of electrons . Thus, fatigue (low energy due to low voltage) is intensified by exposure to wind. Knowing this, we can purposely replenish our electrons with intermittent breaks to exercise and pray, which has been proven to recharge our physical/mental battery.

5. At least minimal exposure to natural sunlight daily replenishes electrons in ways we absolutely need and can store (if our cell membranes are healthy). Organic plant based diets (photosynthesis produces photons that attract electron); diets rich in balanced Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids; avoidance of hydrogenated fats (processed oleo and some nut butters); and partaking of the “Budwig flax oil/high sulfur protein protocol” all work because of their electron enriching properties. Cell membranes (brain of the cell) are largely constructed of fatty acids.

6. Exercise! Our muscles actually create electrons when we exercise. Muscles also act like a storage

Here is the link for my own series of exercises that include purposeful deep breathing both the move lymphatic fluid (move toxins from body fluids) and energize body tissue: https://youtu.be/lIWoEaiHEV8 . I offer a DVD with the routine with the simple movements explained and then repeated several times. It can be ordered for $5 including shipping (in US) from www.slamthedooroncancer.com . The routine can be adapted to various healing levels.

7. Moving water generates absorbable electrons. Thus taking showers rather than baths is a way of replenishing electrons. Filtered showerheads, of course, can help remove the damaging chemicals in tap water. We know our skins absorb such chemicals so we do well to protect it from exposure to them in water and skin care products.

8. The earth is a powerful electromagnet. Walk on it barefooted, lean against trees and soak in blessed electrons. Let your pets spend time on the ground (that’s not sprayed with electron killing chemicals) so they can carry electrons back to you when you pet them. God’s given us an abundant “battery charger”. Get your hands dirty in a garden.

9. Fulvic Acid dietary supplementation can supply our bodies with a wealth of energy generating electrons. Recently on www.realhealthhope.com , I provided several links to information about Fulvic Acid (extracted from deposits of plant based Humic Shale in various areas of the world).

There are deposits of material from ancient forests now yielding humid shale with "lost minerals and nutrients" now available again.

There are deposits of material from ancient forests now yielding humid shale with “once lost minerals and nutrients” now available again.

Fulvic acid is the absolute smallest particle of this “ancient forest compost” so to speak. “It has all the genetic information, all of the nutrition, all of the antioxidant capacity. The molecule of fulvic acid has 14 tetra trillion (14 with 21 zeros behind it) electrons it can donate (and neutralize free damaging free radicals which are cellular debris left over from cellular metabolism and work). Thus the body can return to carrying a healthy electrical voltage and body cells and tissue work as they are created to do. They have the electricity to operate.

High electrical activity kills cancer cells. It balances acidity, delivers oxygen to cells, and balances the chemistry of well over 70% of our bodies.

Fulvic acid acts as a delivery system for nutrients as well as “picking up the cellular garbage including heavy metals. It is high in carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen. (source: Dr. Daniel Nuzum, MS., ND. in an interview with Ty Bollinger, author of “The Truth About Cancer” in transcript of “The Quest for the Cures Continues” 2015. Paraphrased.)
https://vimeo.com/111337999 links to a video with Dr. Nuzum explaining Fulvic Acid further.
https://youtu.be/X_k1BNenl_c is a link to one of Dr. Tennant’s videos on Youtube and this particularly one discusses Fulvic Acid.

 I will be posting about bioelectrical healing topics again soon. I want to help my readers understand even more powerful ways to “Slam the Door on Disease” once and for all. I hope you will take time to read Psalms 91 soon and be encouraged that, although the world deals out a lot of harm, God offers protection for those who realize the great gift of His grace through faith. If we focus on His Grace . . . then our faith expands just like the “woman with the issue of blood”. (Matthew 9, Mark 5, Luke 2). Focused prayer is focused energy—“The same spirit that raised Jesus from the dead dwells in us and quickens our mortal bodies . “ (Romans 8:11)  It’s REAL power.

Fulvic Acids–Worth Investigating Now!

Fulvic acid molecules are so small and transportable that they "service" our body cells like no other molecules can.

Fulvic acid molecules are so small and transportable that they “service” our body cells like no other molecules can.

Fulvic Acids (and Humid Acids) are definitely worth taking a little time to investigate for your health.
I Believe You Will Want to Learn About Humic and Fulvic Minerals and their integral part of health and healing. Personally, I have been digging in the research for months since learning about these critical and ever more important nutrients (increasing in importance as our food sources are grown in steadily depleting soils).

The subject of fulvic/humic acids is somewhat complex; therefore, I will give you several links for you to glean further information. I encourage you to take the time to become informed about these nutrients as well as to pray for insight as you seek the information.

These nutrients are NOT some man-made substitute for God’s own nutritional plan. They are, in fact, part of Creation itself and are entering our awareness now much as though God knew we would mess up our “perfect world” and need “stockpiles” of these God-made nutrients for such a time as this.

We have access but it comes with some responsibility. Let me explain. I am going to provide you with a few links so that you can check out the rich information on these wonderful nano molecule nutrients obtained fully from deposits around the world. Instead of trying to explain the science, I’m listing below several resources and each of them have resources also so that you can delve as deeply as you wish into this important subject.

I will likely write about these again soon as I am personally taking Fulvic Acid (5 drops daily in my fresh made organic vegetable juice). The word of caution is that chlorinated water must be avoided with the intake of these powerful nutrients as is explained in some of the articles I link you to. I trust my home-made organic juice to be filtered by nature.

These minute (nano) nutrient molecules basically deliver tremendously powerful fully natural plant based and concentrated nutrients throughout our bodies ultimately making certain our bio-electric mechanisms are functioning fully—our energy for living functions if you will. We are, after all, electrical beings as well as chemical beings and, of course, spiritual beings.

Besides delivering the nutrient molecules to the most “remote corners” of our bodies and cellular make up, these molecules “carry out the trash” hidden there by chelating heavy toxins we’ve taken in through exposure to them in our food, water, and air. As I said in the opening paragraph of this post, I think you will want to learn more about humic and fulvic acids. Do Not Be Alarmed at the word acid just as you shouldn’t be alarmed at the words “fatty acids”. These are scientific terms and not “scare words” for those who realize we must maintain an alkaline body chemistry to be healthy.

Again, it is extremely important to realize that this “Godsend” is not something magic to throw on top of a poor diet and unhealthy lifestyle. Doing so would be like dumping ever more trash into a room as “good guys” are diligently working to clean that same room up even removing the tiniest bits of garbage.

Fulvic acid nutrients are tremendous health booster and restorer “good guys” or “workers” and they do the double duty of delivering needed molecules that have grown nearly impossible to obtain elsewhere AND, once the delivery is made to a cell, these “good guys” pick up and carry out the trash. That’s the way I’m beginning to “see the picture”.

I strongly encourage you to check it out for yourself and, again, prayerfully consider your choices regarding this relatively new information.  Also, please visit my other blog, www.slamthedooroncancer.com for my latest post on the medicinal impact of our “healing touch” which is another aspect of our bio-electrical nature and health.

2 Major Dairy Food Issues in the Anti-Cancer Lifestyle

2 Major Dairy Food Issues in the Anti-Cancer Lifestyle

Cows make their "products" out of more "stuff" than we realize and our bodies don't want it so our immune systems react with persistent inflammation, the hotbed for all disease.

Cows make their “products” out of more “stuff” than we realize and our bodies don’t want it so our immune systems react with persistent inflammation, the hotbed for all disease.

In my writing office I have many bookshelves filled with anti-cancer diet information. My Kindle is loaded with literally hundreds. I don’t adopt or share information (and didn’t do so in my book) unless I have found a reliable consensus of information and actually applied it to my own healing from cancer.

There is an undeniable consensus that animal based (and soy based) “dairy foods” enhance the bodily environment cancer likes. That particularly refers to cow’s milk products. Soy is an issue because literally ALL soy products have genetically modified organisms in them. Soy research also shows it contains a molecule that may stimulate breast cancer growth.

The main two issues that remove dairy foods from the Anti-Cancer lifestyle/diet include:
• Animal based dairy products (indeed ALL animal based foods) contribute to acidity in total body chemistry. Cancer requires an acidic biochemistry to initiate and grow. It also augments inflammation, which, by a very strong consensus in scientific literature, is the hotbed for most serious diseases including but not limited to cancer.
• Animal based dairy (and meat) products usually include Genetically Modified Organisms or GMO’s through the feeds the producing animals ate.**

There are other issues with eating dairy such as digestive difficulties; pasteurization that changes organic minerals into toxic elemental minerals; nearly universal addition of generally harmful man-made ‘vitamins’; a large portion of cow’s milk contains carcinogenic viruses even if pasteurized. However, acidity and GMO’s would be enough on their own to make removing dairy products from one’s diet a true “anti-cancer strategy”. *

In his extremely useful booklet, “Dr. Blaylock’s Guide to Avoiding GMO Foods (available at www.BlaylockGMO.com ), There is a succinct section entitled, “Dairy Aisle GMO Land Mines” warning the reader against hidden sources of GMOs in the supermarket dairy section. I highly recommend you subscribe to Dr. Blaylock’s blog to access a wealth of information from an M.D. who actually became educated on alternative medicine including nutrition.

He briefly discusses Nondairy milks pointing out the issues of GMO soy but saying that almond, rice, or coconut milks are generally GMO free unless they contain emulsifiers and added flavorings that are GMO. He advises to look for the organic or Non-GMO labels I described in my last blog post (July 13, 2013) on www.slamthedooroncancer.com .

Other product warnings include “Nondairy creamers which often contain GMO soybean or cottonseed oil, corn syrup or corn solids, and sugar from GMO beets. Again look for the organic products.

GMO whey is very common as a dairy based food additive for binding or improving texture. Check labels on processed cheeses, spreads, meats, chili, soups, gravies, beverages, candy, salad dressings, snack foods, candy, baked goods, mixes, and frozen desserts.

Protein powders and shakes, popular with athletes or others focused on healthy weight control, often have GMO whey and or soy protein. These are usually GMO.

I happen to know that the Whey product offered by www.thepeopleschemist.com is GMO free. Elsewhere, look for organic or non-GMO versions usually made with proteins from rice, peas, or non-narcotic hemp.

** Animal feeds and artificial hormones such as (rBGH or rBST) routinely given to cows that produce milk are GMO. I encourage you to visit www.nongmoproject.org to see the verification seals you should find on dairy products to assure they don’t contain these hormones and other GMOs. You want to see a well placed note on the label stating “Dairy not treated with rBGH”. The FDA says there is no significant difference between milk from cows treated with rBGH and untreated cows. However, no test can distinguish between the milk of treated and untreated cows. These hormones are produced through genetic modification (literally creating “Frankinfoods” that aren’t “read as food” by our bodies that are way too complex and wonderful to be tricked by counterfeit material sold as food.)

If we embrace God;s wisdom as expressed in His Word, we never forget that the enemy of our souls is not powerful but crafty as a counterfeiter and his first move to trick man, well woman first, was a “slick food commercial”.   He still tries the same tactic.

*NOTE: I substitute unsweetened organic coconut milk in cereal and recipes and sometimes I drop in a bit of Stevia herb (powdered or liquid). I do use organic cottage cheese with my organic flax oil for my Budwig protocol knowing that this great omega 3 oil literally mixes with the high sulfur protein of the cottage cheese (or organic kefir or organic yogurt I make myself) removing the “dairy characteristics” of these proteins. The amazing chemical change in both the protein and the oil make it ideal for transporting oxygen into cells and building healthy cell membranes. Search “Budwig protocol” in my blogs for more information about this important topic. I regularly use the coconut milk as “cream” along with stevia drops as sweetener in my Teeccino alternative to coffee.   I also purchase a very dark chocolate made with Stevia and treat myself to a small piece several times a week.   It is a great antioxidant.

Laughter is Powerful Medicine

LAUGHTER IS POWERFUL MEDICINE

Occasionally, I’m compelled to remind my readers that their sense of humor actually stimulates their body’s “good health and healing mechanisms”. In my book,  “Slam the Door on Cancer”, I share the well-known author Norman Mailer’s story of recovering from a “terminal disease” by getting out of the hospital and into a hotel room where he was monitored by his physicians while he “laughed himself well” through watching good old wholesome comedy videos.

laughter best medicine cartoonI, too, was aggressive in making laughter and humor (only wholesome and not dark humor) a huge part of my daily healing protocol. I still keep resources handy and I’m often reminded in prayer to “lighten up and laugh more”.

The “science of laughter” is well founded in God’s Word, “A merry heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.” We know that laughter physically stimulates the lymphatic system and circulatory system.” In fact, as Norman Mailer put it, “laughing is ‘internal jogging’ “.

Here are some video links I have found tremendously helpful in healing and you can network out from these to even more. They are free on Youtube although I also purchased some of the DVD’s and MP3 audios from these and others to keep handy. They can change your day. Chonda Pierce lost her beloved husband a year or so ago and I wondered if she would or could go on. She has done so. I find her honest humor hilarious.

Anita Renfroe Youtube Videos

Michael Jr. Youtube Videos

I also highly recommend the “Bananas Comedy Series” and “Thou Shalt Laugh” comedy series. Enjoy them with your entire family.   You can purchase the DVD’s or you can watch many segments on Youtube.

I also recommend a book by Charles Hunter (the great healing minister along with his wife, Frances) entitled “Laugh Yourself Healthy: Keep the Doctor Away With a Giggle a Day!”  Some jokes are precious and some a bit corny. Laugh at all of them.

Finally, if you can, spend some time with a child and exchange some “Knock Knock” and other silly humor…..make up some outrageous stories. GIGGLE “as a child” and be refreshed.

Additionally, please visit www.slamthedooroncancer.com for my recent post on arming yourself to shop without buying GMO products that surely threaten your health.  My current post is succinct and describes the labels to look for the the ones that have no legal definition but do imply information shoppers too often assume is true.

Dangers of Hydrogenated Oils

I want to share an article with you by Dr. Jana Fortner, N.D. who is the author of a book I highly recommend entitled 7 Keys to Awesome Health.   The book is available from www.amazon.com Early in my recovery, I consulted with Dr. Fortner personally.  Fortunately, her office was a short drive from my home at the time.

 She confirmed what I was already doing, but adjusted several things, tested me for certain deficiencies (like zinc) and added two or three important supplements to my regimen including a supplement to help me digest fats since I had my gall bladder removed as part of my cancer surgery.  She fine tuned my nutritional program.   She monitored  my progress until I was satisfactorily balanced in a program designed just for me.  

The information in this article is meant to clear up confusion regarding fats in our diet.  We MUST balance our fat intake, and avoid lethal fat products; yet, we need fats because our cell membranes are actually constructed largely from fats.  I hope you enjoy the article and that you will visit Dr. Fortner’s website.

What’s Wrong with Hydrogenated Oil or Chemically Altered Oil?© www.awesomehealthmakeover.com
Hydrogenated oils are essentially refined and processed vegetable oils. They are the product of a lengthy process which culminates in the bubbling of hydrogen through refined and deodorized oil at temperatures exceeding 200 C. The extreme heat causes the structure of the fat molecules to be altered such that oil which was originally liquid at room temperature is now solid or semi-solid. These altered, unnatural fatty acids are then called trans-fatty acids but they are more commonly known as shortening or margarine. Now, there are also “trans-fat free” margarines which are chemically altered, nutritionally void, and just as unhealthy as the trans-fat variety they are meant to replace.
It is not at all safe to eat hydrogenated, partially hydrogenated, or chemically altered oils even though they are found in all kinds of pre-packaged foods. Food manufacturers add hydrogenated oils to foods in order to preserve shelf life and produce a pleasing texture. They use these unhealthy fats because their healthier counterparts are a lot more expensive and have a much shorter shelf life.
Because the human body was created long before altered fats were, it was not designed to process them. While we have very efficient mechanisms for handling normal fats, abnormal ones throw the body into a state of confusion and disorder.
Healthy, unaltered fats normally serve a number of vital functions in the body. They are burned for long-term energy, and they are necessary components of the membrane surrounding every cell in the body. You make thousands of new cells every minute. [My note:   Several of my blog posts here and at www.slamthedooroncancer.com discuss the need to balance Omega 6 and Omega 3 fatty ESSENTIAL (must ingest in foods) acids.  All of the posts discussing the “Budwig Protocol” include this information.  My book, Slam the Door on Cancer and Lock It Out of Your Life, also discusses the importance of our taking in proper fatty acids.   Dr. Fortner’s book is a great source of information on all these subjects as well and both of our books are quite readable.]

Trans-fats, however, don’t burn properly for fuel and don’t function properly in cell membranes. When fats don’t function correctly, the cell membrane’s ability to control what comes into and goes out of the cell may be severely impaired, resulting in lowered immunity, impaired hormonal function, and early cell death.
Because trans-fats are not recognized by the body as useful substances, the liver classifies them as toxic wastes and attempts to detoxify and eliminate them. This creates an unusual burden on the liver and gall bladder, which can lead to degeneration in those organs. The liver performs at least 500 distinct and critical functions in the body, so it pays large dividends to make sure it is not stressed.
Body chemistry requires many vitamins and minerals in order to digest and process foods to make energy or produce new body cells. These specific nutrients are normally contained in the foods we eat to keep a balance in the body between what we are using up and what we are taking in. Like all refined foods, however, hydrogenated oils have had all of their nutrients removed during processing. This lack of nutrients is the reason they keep so well on the shelf – nutrients spoil, motor oil doesn’t. When you eat refined food, your body has to use up vitamins and minerals from your own reserve supplies – leaving you with a deficiency that will negatively affect energy production and organ function.
According to a study reported by Mary Enig, Ph.D., “when monkeys were fed trans-fat containing margarine in their diets…their red blood cells did not bind insulin as well as when they were not fed trans-fats. This suggests a link with diabetes. Trans-fatty acids have been linked with a variety of adverse health effects which include: cancer, ischemic heart disease, multiple sclerosis, diverticulitis, diabetes, and other degenerative conditions.”
Where might you find hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated oils? Here is a partial list of possibilities:
some cold cereals, chips and crackers, some peanut butter,microwaveable popcorn, roasted / salted nuts, pre-packaged cookies, many candies, margarines and shortenings, pre-packaged snack cakes.
ALL deep frying or high-heat baking hydrogenates the oils in foods such as french fries, chicken nuggets, onion rings, etc.
Virtually all baking mixes and many batters including cake, muffin, and pancake may contain hydrogenated oils.
Are there any good oils? Some fats are necessary for proper function and rebuilding of the body. Good sources include flax oil, extra virgin coconut oil, and extra virgin olive oil. For maximum benefit these oils should be consumed raw. Flax oil in particular should never be heated. Here are some substitution suggestions to help you on your way to health:
Instead of: Use:
Instead of margarine use organic butter, extra-virgin coconut oil
Instead of shortening, use organic butter, extra-virgin coconut oil
Instead of canola or soybean oils, use extra-virgin olive oil, flax oil
What can you safely do with a hydrogenated or chemically altered oil? Save it for the next time you have a squeaky hinge.”

Two Part “Insurance” for Real Health

We CAN make our bodies inhospitable to cancer or nearly any other disease

We CAN insure our body is inhospitable to cancer or nearly any other disease which certainly beats fighting to get insurance to pay for sick care.

People ask me often, “If you could only do one thing to keep your health and surely avoid a cancer relapse, what would it be?”   The response is not complicated for me.

First, any time and every time the slightest hint of illness arises (and, yes, occasionally relapse symptoms give it another try),  I immediately become  even more earnest and aggressive in declaring the Word of God into my body and soul.

Second, I make sure one particular substance is kept out of my body as much as possible–a substance that was the strongest craving I had pre-cancer and one the majority of people I talk with seem to share–it is sugar and it WILL cost us 11 to 20 years of life on average if we let it.   Sugar seeds and fertilizes inflammation–the hotbed for the vast majority of debilitating disease including cancer.

If I have to pick from the two — declaring God’s Word or eliminating sugar, –God’s Word is the ultimate “healing insurance”; however, I do recall Jesus declaring that the unfruitful fig tree would die (I think of this “freeloader tree” as a “type” of cancer).   Yet before the declaration manifested, He went and cleansed the temple.   We ARE now the temple of Holy Spirit; thus, considering my two “insurances” for real health separately is really impossible so let’s call them “Part A” and “Part B”.

“Part A” –Declaring God’s Healing Word aloud persistently and consistently is not “hocus pocus” and it is not “hoping against hope”.   It is absolute quantum healing power.   Remember that God spoke the universe into being.   There was nothing and then there was everything OR God’s spoken word caused unseen matter to become seen matter.   The point is that words change matter (substances that have weight and take up space).     Our bodies are, of course, “matter” and we know they react to words if we’ve ever blushed at someone’s remarks.    Declaring what the actual words of our Creator say about our health and healing has a distinct and powerful impact upon the “matter” that makes up our bodies–indeed, our body cells where our living is rooted.

Sound (speaking) is, of course, vibrational, and although you may not realize it, quantum physics has disclosed that all

Scripture contains healing light.

Scripture contains healing light.

matter including our bodies is also vibrational at the sub-atomic or quantum level.  Declaring God’s Word is precisely declaring God’s intention for us individually and that intention is light and love which heal any and all maladies.   What could be a more powerful “insurance” for real health  than bringing one’s body into rhythm or resonance with the loving Creator of that body?

In my book, Slam the Door on Cancer and Lock It Out of Your Life, I share my personal experience with declaring God’s healing Word three times a day as though I was taking medicine.   I obtained my healing and kept it.   Any time I sense any illness from headache to sore throat to cancer symptoms trying to attack, I begin prayers of thanksgiving [“Enter His gates with Thanksgiving and His courts with praise” as in Psalms 100] and I’m always amazed at how quickly the enemy gives up.   He’s a bully anyway and he can’t stand the powerful resonance of a body/soul/spirit “in tune” with the Lord Himself.

NOTE:  You can find a wealth of “Healing Scriptures” at www.slamthedooroncancer.com by clicking the “Resource” tab and then “The Healing Word of God”.  There is also a tab for “Scripture Audio” you can listen to or play in the presence of an ill loved one.  I’ve known people who have recovered from terrible sickness after their loved ones read and played audio of the healing Scriptures to them 24/7 even when the patient was unconscious.

 

Cleansing the temple includes body, soul (mind, will, emotions) and spirit!

“Part B: —“Cleansing the temple” physically would mean removing that which corrupts our being “in tune” with God’s design for us.  Jesus got all the  crooks and deceivers out of the temple in perhaps His most violent action.   Truly, He cleared out the enemy who had counterfeited a way to control temple life.   Sugar counterfeits food because it is not useful as food and it does nothing but destroy lives.   Sugar actually controls life within the body of a person subject to sugar cravings.

The Journal of The American Medical Association (JAMA) reported that 1 in 3 children born in the year 2000 or later will lose 11-20 years from their lifespan from sugar consumption!    That is from the many diseases that are fertilized by sugar. These include ALL, yes ALL, “dis-eases” such as diabetes, cancer, heart disease, ADHD, depressions, allergies etc.

Something causes these things and it is NEITHER our loving Creator’s plan NOR “luck of the DNA draw”.

Most of us walk around feeling less than half as well as we could

Most of us accept feeling unwell as a natural part of life and IT IS NOT.

Sugar beats the insidious drum that corrupts our inner resonance and dirties our blood setting us up for feeling terrible, being cranky, hearing dreaded disease diagnoses pronounced over our bodies, an on and on.   We do not get sick because we lack some man-made chemical (pharmaceutical) in our bodies.    We get sick because our lifestyle (emotionally and/or physically) allows or causes us to become out of resonance with the loving Creator’s purposes in our lives.   We get “out of tune” and “out of resonance and usually it’s because we don’t keep our temple clean.     We get used to feeling half or even less well than we are intended to feel and disease creeps upon us.

I know that giving up sugar seems impossible to some.   One dear man told me, “If I’m going to die of cancer, then I want to enjoy all the desserts I can before I go.”    I’m not making this up folks.   That enemy counterfeiter is a “sweet talker” — remember he wooed Eve in the garden with a “slick food commercial”.

There is help for putting sugar addiction behind us once and for all.  It includes reading every food label and returning the container to the shelf if it contains any form of refined sugar including those with fancy names like “HFCS, high fructose corn syrup, cane syrup, raw sugar, etc.”     Sugar is sugar and any is too much.   We burn glucose for energy but it needs to come in good food like fruits and vegetables.   Moderation is important in eating fruit.  I delve further into this topic in the book.

I found Stevia herb very helpful because it does not raise blood sugar and is a natural sweetening herb.  I also found pure

Real Ceylon cinnamon can help control blood sugar if we don't overwhelm our bodies with high glycemic index "food".

Real Ceylon cinnamon can help control blood sugar if we don’t overwhelm our bodies with high glycemic index “food”.

Ceylon cinnamon a tremendous help as well as Milk Thistle Supplements in controlling the craving and moderating blood sugar.  I’m not doing a commercial, but a product called Cinnergy which is a well made pure blend of cinnamon and milk thistle is a supplement I like.  Check out www.getcinnergy.com .   It comes from www.thepeopleschemist.com  where there is much good information on lifestyle and wellness.   Instructions say don’t take it if you have a problem with hypoglycemia or low blood sugar and everyone should seek the advice of trained health care professionals.    I also use quite a bit of pure Ceylon cinnamon in my food (like yogurt, smoothies, and cereal).   It does not have a strong cinnamon taste.   Avoid cinnamon with additives like chromium and make sure you get the real thing.   A good Nutrition Center can help you with getting the real cinnamon.    It’s also available from www.renegadehealth.com .    I get organic Ceylon cinnamon through www.amazon.com and keep it in a quart glass jar to refill my shaker from.

I found my sugar cravings had subsided after about two weeks of “violently” persisting to cut sugar out of my diet.  My bout with pancreatic cancer left me with 1/3 pancreas (after surgery) and that remnant had troublesome spots as did lungs and liver.  I’ve never taken insulin and my hemoglobin A1C tests have been just fine for years now.    I do watch the carrot content in my daily vegetable juice and blend it with celery and cucumber juice made fresh from organic produce.

Remember that a healthy cell cannot become cancerous.  Building health is “the cure”.

Have a Teeccino–Healthy and Delicious

Break the coffee habit without feeling like you are being deprived. Teeccino is a great alternative.

Break the coffee habit without feeling like you are being deprived. Teeccino is a great alternative.

In my quest to convince my readers that a healthy lifestyle is gloriously joyful, I am sharing another of my favorite products in this post.  “Let’s have a coffee!” is a mechanism for getting folks together for conversation and fellowship; however, the caffeine is an issue for many facets of our health.   In fact it is a drug with a myriad of side effects.   For many (including me), I reacted to the loss of my “morning friend” as though a favorite toy had been taken from the child in me.

However, as He does when we let him, God brought a wonderful coffee alternative into my life and I haven’t looked back.  My husband, a long time coffee hound from a family that drank a great deal of coffee, has largely turned to this alternative also.   He arises before me and makes us a pot in our drip coffee maker nearly every day.

I especially enjoy the “Vanilla Nut” Teeccino with a drop of Stevia and a bit of coconut milk.    I also enjoy the chocolate and I suggest it  will get you through a chocolate craving episode richly.   All the flavors are amazing.

Here’s the snag . . . or it seemed so to me for a while.  Teeccino is rarely found in restaurants and having a coffee after dinner or just as a “conversation opportunity” is a treat I didn’t want to give up.   But, again, there is a solution.  Teeccino comes in nice “tea bags” in many flavors such as French Roast, Chocolate, Dandelion Caramel Nut,  Vanilla Nut, et al.   All are absolutely delicious.   So I carry a small ziplock bag in my purse with a few bags of various flavors of this drink–enough for me and often to share with a friend who has never tried Teeccino.     Honestly, I have never had anyone try it who did not like it.    I just order hot water or hot tea with cream and ask them not to put the tea in the water.    I fudge on the cream/milk but I also carry small packets of stevia powder and just a few grains work for me.     I get two cups from one Teeccino “bag”.   Never have I discerned a difference in flavor from the drip percolator or “tea bag” produced drink.

I have found Teeccino at Whole Foods and at one health food store.    I live in a rural area of Kentucky so I do a lot of online shopping.   Both www.vitacost.com and www.amazon.com have supplied my Teeccino.

I urge you to give Teeccino a try if you are serious about “kicking the caffeine habit” and I urge you to do so.  Teeccino is non-acidic (huge asset) and gluten free.   This drink is of “Mediterranean ilk” and ingredients (varying slightly per flavor) include organic carob, organic chicory, almonds, dates, organic figs, organic ramon seeds, natural chocolate, organic dandelion, natural coffee flavor, natural vanilla extract, organic barley, chile flakes.  All flavors have zero sugar except vanilla nut has 1 g sugar.   Delicious iced as well as hot although I don’t mind it at room temperature.

Visit www.teeccino.com for more details.   The package mentions that this drink provides a natural energy boost from nutrients rather than stimulants.   It has heart healthy potassium and soluble fiber.  It also contains inulin which is a natural derivative from the chicory root supporting beneficial microflora that improve digestion, elimination and intestinal health.

Again, I have no business or other connection with this product.   I do hope it blesses my readers as much as it has blessed me.  I enjoyed many cups of teeccino at my laptop while writing my book, Slam the Door on Cancer and Lock It Out of Your Life.  

NOTE:   Visit this week’s post on my other blog:  www.slamthedooroncancer.com to learn about an inexpensive and effective internal cleanse……easy too.

Enjoy Eating Healthy–It’s the Berries

When I do seminars or counsel one-on-one, sometimes I can feel in the air a resistance to the idea of healthy eating because people are so influenced by “junk food advertisements” that sublimely imply that “eating healthy” is boring and joyless.  In this practical post, I share one of my favorite healthy foods that actually “jazz up my daily diet”. They are a delicious treat and packed with “good nutrition”.   I’m pretty certain you can’t overdose on these because I eat LOTS.

I keep a glass spice shaker with 1/8" holes filled with freeze dried organic black raspberry powder--TASTY!

I keep a glass spice shaker with 1/8″ holes filled with freeze dried black raspberry powder–TASTY!

This treat is freeze-dried black raspberry powder.   I actually learned about this food product from one of my readers whose wife beat ovarian/uterine cancer and who “gets it” regarding “interactive miracle healing”.

The photo to the left is the brand my friend recommended to me and I actually communicated with the company and found them very dedicated to the quality and purity of their product.  I have no business connection and do not benefit financially from sharing this information.  It is whole berry powder, non-GMO and gluten free.  I don’t have personal experience with other brands but I’m sure there are some.

Of course “Big Brother” limits what we can share regarding how absolutely “anti-cancer” and “anti-disease” the innate ingredients in this food can be; however, you can read more about the potent anthocyanidins in such berries in my book, Slam the Door on Cancer and Lock It Out of Your Life, as well as some of the resources I cite in the appendices of the book (and on the resource page of this blog).

[Note: “Anthocyanidins are a class of polyphenols responsible for almost all of the vivid colors–pink, mauve, orange, and blue–found in many fruits and vegetables.  These pigments are particularly abundant in berries, and especially in raspberries and blueberries, which can contain up to 500 mg per 100 grams of fruit.” (p 122 Foods to Fight Cancer by R Beliveau, PhD and D Gingras, PhD)]

What a gift from God to make attractive, delicious food contain such health giving molecules!  I love to sprinkle this powder on toast made from Ezekiel 4:9 “low GI” bread and spread with Barleans Organic coconut oil.   It is great sprinkled into yogurt, cereal, or even salads or you can simply mixed with purified water for a delicious and nutritious juice drink.  The package says to mix one serving of 2 rounded teaspoons (equal to 1/2 cup fresh berries( in a full glass of water.  We can be creative as we take in this tremendous food!

I order this product through www.amazon.com and the BerriProducts contact information is 1-888-761-8407,  www.berrihealth.com and email is service@berrihealth.com.  This is a family company (Sturm’s Berry Farms in Oregon) and has been practicing ecological farming in the foothills of Mount Hood for 70 years.  The powder has fiber, potassium, vitamin C, Iron, Calcium, etc on its package label; however, standard package labeling does not facilitate including the listing of powerful anthocyanidins–molecules shown in laboratory testing to be capable of forcing cancer cells to commit suicide (apoptosis).  In his book, Anticancer,  Dr. David Servan-Schreiber, MD, PhD,and long time brain tumor survivor, says “. . . these molecules act on several cancer lines and are particularly effective against colon cancer.” (p 118)

He also says that research done on “rats who consumed black raspberries from Canada experienced an inhibiting effect on cancers of the esophagus, mouth, and colon.”  Dr. Servan-Schreiber goes so far as to say, “” . . rats in the group that consumed the berries developed 50% fewer tumors than the control group.  This magical little fruit has already proven its effects in small group of patients who genetically suffer from a particular kind of polyp that is known to aggravate the risk of breast cancer.  Patients who took black raspberry extract had up to 59% fewer of these dangerous polyps than the throat who were given a placebo.” (ibid. p 119)

Per several sources including Servan-Schreiber, we also recall that raspberries (among other berries) contain ellagic acid and many polyphenols that stimulate the mechanisms of elimination of carcinogenic substances and inhibit angiogenesis.  And, again, anthocyanidins and proanthocyanidins also promote apoptosis in cancer cells.  And “freezing does not damage the anticancer molecules in these berries, so in winter, frozen berries can replace fresh ones.” (ibid p 139).    Thus we can conclude that the freeze-dried whole berries are not lacking in these important nutrients.  Servan-Schreiber documents the research sources for his statements.

The Encyclopedia of Natural Medicine, 3rd edition (p 912) shares this information:  “Blackberries, raspberries, blueberries, black-currants, cranberries, ace berries, and strawberries as well as other fruits rich in similar flavonoids such as pomegranates, cherries, and plums, appear to be extremely helpful in preventing prostate cancer, as test tube studies have shown impressive anticancer action. . . . Regular consumption of these foods and supplementation with concentrated source of procyanidolic oligomers are recommended.”

By the way, these nutrient molecules in berries also “reduce capillary fragility, increase the integrity of the venous wall, improve the muscular tone of the vein” and thus very helpful to people with blood vein issues like varicose veins. (Ibid. p 994)

Your Body’s Most Overlooked Anti-Cancer Mechanism

You can activate your body’s most overlooked anti-cancer mechanism.

lg-2Bezine-2BbuttonSummary:
Chronic inflammation is a hotbed for growth of tumors. Our lymphatic system is the mainstay for draining an inflammation “swamp” within us. This article discusses five ways we can activate our amazing lymphatic system.

Body:

The lymphatic system parallels the blood vessels. It filters fluid from cells then dumps it back into bloodstream.

The lymphatic system parallels the blood vessels. It filters fluid from cells then dumps it back into bloodstream.

“It’s in the lymph nodes.” is threatening information to someone dealing with cancer. Yet, many people are unclear what a lymph node, or for that matter the lymphatic system, is designed to do. This important system pervades all body tissue with vessels parallel to the blood vessels.

Simply stated, the lymphatic system’s job is to pick up, filter (through nodes) and recycle the fluid washing between cells. It is also the only means for evacuating the blood protein molecules that become trapped in that fluid surrounding body cells. The lymph fluid carries these proteins through the filtering nodes along the way, and finally “dumps” both the fluid and “vetted” proteins into a vein under the left collarbone

Chronic inflammation increases the amounts of extra fluid and blood proteins in the space between body cells (which is meant to have minimal fluid) and thereby overworks the lymphatic system. If the fluid is not kept moving, a stagnant unhealthy state sets so that oxygen and nutrients are not delivered to cells and they can’t do their jobs. All of our energy, indeed every life process, generates at the cellular level. Cancer and other nasty diseases begin to develop in such inflammatory stagnation.

While several absolutely critical lifestyle elements such as diet, sleep, and stress management get much attention in anti-disease discussions, lymph system health is practically ignored. However, we can do several specific things to activate and support this very important system.

Here are five lymph-moving activities to consider:

Muscle Contraction:
The lymphatic system does not have a pump like the heart that pumps our blood. Like blood veins, however, lymphatic vessels do have check valves to keep fluid moving in only one direction. However lymph fluid relies on both pressure differentiations and mechanical pumping means. We supply the latter as we live our lives.

Muscle contraction helps the fluid move–especially at the capillary and small vessel level. Muscle driven movement is essential and various forms of exercise help but cannot do the entire job and more physically active lifestyles serve our lymphatic systems better.

Exercise, Laughter, Deep Breathing, proper massage can all move lymph.  Chemicals do not.

Exercise, Laughter, Deep Breathing, proper massage can all move lymph. Chemicals do not.

Bouncing on Mini-Trampoline:
Bouncing on a mini-trampoline is an excellent way to stimulate lymph fluid movement because it suspends the body “weightless” for short “bursts” that encourage the lymph fluid through the check valves. These trampoline devices are available in a wide price range and some have a handle bar for those who need steadying. People who are weak can sit on the larger bouncers while someone else gently bounces. I’m amazed at how this bouncing has helped me and I use a small inexpensive device. There are free online videos demonstrating this activity.

Deep Breathing:
Deep breathing is absolutely critical for moving lymph fluid especially through the larger ducts in the trunk and then depositing it into the blood. A big yawn, a cough, a sneeze, a belly laugh, singing with proper breath control all do it because of the deep breathing they evoke. Still, breathing exercises and good breathing habits are absolutely essential to avoid lymph back up, pressure on nodes and pockets of inflammation. Deep breathing is particularly important for anyone who has had surgery in their past.

A person with a sedentary job can do deep breathing exercises in place and one well tested “routine” is this:
1. Sitting up straight with chin up, place the tip of your tongue behind your upper front teeth with lips slightly parted.
2. Focus on filling your lungs fully from the “bottom” to “top”.
3. Breathe in through your nose steadily while counting to four.
4. Hold the breath to a count of seven.
5. Then, making a soft “whoosh” sound, breath out through your mouth to a count of eight.
6. Work up to repeating this in sets of four and do it hourly.

Well-designed studies have demonstrated that deep breathing effectively activates lymph fluid movement. Exercises that have a very deliberate breathing component like one I have adapted in my recovery from pancreatic cancer can be very helpful. It is similar to Tai Chi.

Low Voltage Devices:
Under care of physical therapists, sometimes battery-powered devices are used to emit a very low voltage intermittent impulse into the local tissue. The impulse is delivered through strategically placed electrodes adhered to the skin on either side of a site where pain is occurring. Pain signals a lack of oxygen that is often a result of inflammation blocking the removal of trapped blood proteins. This stimulation is meant to break up clumps of trapped plasma proteins to enable lymphatic capillaries to evacuate them. The capillaries often cannot absorb the large protein molecules clumped together.

Lymphatic Massage:
Some professional masseuses are trained and licensed in lymphatic massage. You can seek out such a specialist to perform therapeutic massage that is helpful in activating the lymphatic system. Doing so might be beneficial for someone who has spent time being very inactive due to hospitalization or illness.

Anyone can improve their state of health by being aware of their lymphatic system and doing some simple things to keep it moving its cleansing and balancing fluid through our bodies. Who wouldn’t want to minimize stagnation and do all they can to eliminate pockets of chronic inflammation that can become a tumor’s favorite environment?

7 Things I Learned About Cancer That Helped Me Beat It

A plant based diet (largely raw) jump starts your healing.

A plant based diet (largely raw) jump starts your healing.

My last post may have been more technical than some of you were comfortable with.  I assure you that my book is not highly technical although I do share some of the “science” regarding a few topics.   In this post, I’m going to keep it simple and share seven critical things I learned about cancer that helped me beat it.

ONE:   I learned that cancer cannot live in a body chemistry that is kept slightly alkaline rather than acidic.  When I learned this fact, I ordered litmus paper and began checking my morning urine daily.  I learned that eating a plant based diet , supplementing with Barley Power tablets (www.greensupreme.org), and getting the stress out of my life (“resting in the Lord”) keep me balanced.  Juicing (drinking homemade vegetable juice daily) is a tremendous boost in maintaining a healthy biochemical balance.

TWO:  I learned that cancer (tumor cells)  must have sugar to live.  In fact, PET scans, tumor cells are identified by their profuse uptake of sugar.   I deleted sugar, food and drink that contain sugar, and food that readily converts to sugar (like white bread) from my diet.   Sugar is absolutely “cancer fertilizer”.     Good cinnamon supplements (with no additives) can help you with your sugar cravings which you can squelch within two weeks.

THREE:  I learned that certain nutrients in foods actually fight cancer by (a) enhancing apoptosis or the suicide of tumor orIMG_9034 pre-tumor cells, and (b) reducing angiogenesis or the mechanism by which tumor cells trick the body to develop extra blood supply to them.    These foods include but are not limited to:  organic berries, turmeric (curcumin) and some other spices, garlic, green tea and other foods listed in an appendix of my book and on the “resource” page of this blog as well as my book blog, www.slamthedooroncancer.com .   And, yes, organic is important.

FOUR:  I learned that actively honoring my “immune system” was very important to allow my body to do what it is created to do–fight tumor cells.   I found the research on Transfer Point Beta Glucan indicated this supplement is quite potent in boosting the immune system (especially T cells that literally “eat” tumor cells).  I began taking Beta Glucan and get it from www.betterwayhealth.com.

FIVE:  I learned that drinking a lot of pure water is absolutely essential for healing and health.  For a few years I distilled my own water with a countertop machine, but then changed to a Zero Water Filter (again countertop).  The Zero is not expensive, uses no electricity, and reduces total dissolved solids in “tap water” to zero.   It comes with a digital meter to keep track of when to change filters.  I buy mine from www.amazon.com.  Coffee, tea (except herbal), sodas, alcohol are negatives to health and often provide tumor cells the sugar they require.

SIX:  I learned that quantity, quality, and regularity of sleep is often overlooked as a cancer fighter.  Our bodies want to heal and they do so primarily while we sleep.  Sleep depravation is a cumulative health hazard we must avoid because it can be seriously damaging to our DNA and open the door to cancer.

SEVEN:  I learned how important our cell membranes are and that they are largely constructed of certain healthy fats.  I researched the “Budwig Protocol” which is simply combining organic flax oil with a high sulfur protein like cottage cheese or yogurt and including it in daily diet.  I add berries if I use yogurt and I chop up some fresh vegetables in it if I use cottage cheese (organic of course).   I talked about this a bit in my last post.    There is now a product called CelltraMax that I use as a “portable Budwig Protocol” when I need it.  It is available from www.bodybyvinpro.com .

Knowing you can be powerfully active in your own healing is exhilarating.

Knowing you can be powerfully active in your own healing is exhilarating.

These seven things were my “arsenal” as I set out to make my body a place cancer could not live.   Sometimes people scoff at the idea that we have control over whether or not our bodies will “host” a tumor.    They prefer to think of cancer as random bad luck hoping some “expert” will fight their battle for them.   I don’t understand that point of view.  I knew my Creator had made my body to be healthy and I knew He was, therefore, “for me” as I set out to move into an “anti-cancer lifestyle”.    Knowing God absolutely loves you and wants you in full blown health is the foundation for health restoration of wholeness which includes body, soul, and spirit.

The single most important thing I learned spiritually was how to pray effectively.  I learned that whatever decisions and choices I made needed to line up with God’s intent for me.  Whatever I did needed to be rooted in “peace in my spirit” so I learned to pray and listen before making decisions and choices.  I also learned to spend time in God’s Word and I found the “healing scriptures” energized my healing of body and soul (which cannot be separated). There are many “healing scriptures” in an appendix of my book as well as in pages on both blogs.
