Our Patients' Stories
Walking the Path of Hope and Healing
Through this experience I’ve learned that our bodies are amazing! That it can heal and do amazing things if we listen to it. That cancer is not a death diagnosis, it means the body is out of balance so lets find the imbalance and repair it so the body can repair itself. Cancer can’t live in a balanced body.
Life is a gift. Not just the years, but the minutes. I breathe more deeply and carry less heartache inside. I do not see my days as boxes to be filled on a calendar, but days to keep flexible, to be fully present in each moment whether I am pushing my little ones on the swings at the park, or sitting on the backyard swing at night with my husband.
My career in the pharmaceutical industry for 14 years had trained my mind to only understand and believe in gold standard clinical research… But I knew somewhere in my heart that there had to be another answer to dying of chemo and side effects slowly over a year or more… I knew my God was bigger!
A cancer diagnosis is scary for anyone. When you hear your doctor say, “There is a very large something in your abdomen and it is very likely a sarcoma,” your world just kind of stops. I was at work when I got the call. My husband was in the next office. I went in, sat down, started crying and said, “I have cancer.” That word just filled up my mind and seemed to pervade every waking moment.
I knew deep within my bones that chemo would kill me and that I would rather die than take that path. I had a young son and I especially needed to listen to that still voice within my heart, so I could choose the correct path so I could be there for him.
Hurry up. Make a decision. You need surgery. You need radiation so it does not get worse. This was something I could handle if I would get moving on it. But no prognosis. They were confident we caught it early and with treatment I could live a healthy life.

Toxins & Cancer
Like it or not, but hazardous chemicals are everywhere in our modern world: in our air, in our water, in our food, in our beauty and cleaning products and even in our homes. Yet most of us live our lives unaware of our daily exposure to these toxins (which can be loosely defined as any poisonous substance). Most of us only learn that our bodies have been affected by toxins when we receive a diagnosis like cancer.Learn More
