Walking the Path of Hope and Healing
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.

Detoxification: Near-Infrared Sauna
The skin is the largest organ in the body, designed to help release toxins from the body. But in most people, the skin is inactive, toxic and congested. This impairs the body’s natural ability to eliminate toxins through the skin. Near-infrared sauna drives skin rejuvenation and shuttles blood to the skin’s surface, bringing nutrients and oxygen that allows the skin to resume its detoxification function.Learn More
