10 years after healing breast cancer naturally

10 years later. Happy. Healthy. Healed. (Yes really!) NO recurrence  and NO fear of it 'coming back' because I know how and why I healed. I know it won't ever be an issue again because I am feeding my body high dense super foods, minerals, vitamins and doing cleanses (without fasting).

We aren't taught how to take care of these bodies. I have taken classes that teaches what we really need to know. I love being healthy and I love knowing how to share this information with others. has a new style of teaching by Taking Action For Your Health you also can heal your body. These classes are 15 minutes, 5 days a week for 8 weeks, by telephone. You are e-mailed the class material that you print and put in a binder for your continuing study.

 The amount learned is astounding in such a short amount of time. We need to look after the basics, if we are sick we need to address the issue (the injury), the inflammation, the infection, circulation and elimination. As we address and heal these issues the body heals whatever illness has been diagnosed. I did not know this as I was going through my healing journey but I sure wish I did. I wouldn't have done the surgery, that I know for sure!

I am a TAFYH leader now and am teaching these classes, you will be taught what to eat, what not to eat, what minerals and herbs all our bodies need and why, how to make a delicious smoothie to have in the morning, or at night. You are taught what to add to the smoothie to bring your body back to balance. These are some of the changes I have noticed:  the red itchy rash on the back of my neck that was there for years is GONE. My taste for wine is GONE, I just don't want it anymore. My metabolism is BACK, I don't know where it has been all these years. I lost 5 pounds. I feel awake and alert when I awaken in the morning, no more groggy, foggy brain. These are a few of the changes that have happened and its only been 2 MONTHS!

I wish I knew this stuff when I was diagnosed, but I know it now and would love to share it.

My publisher and I have decided to change the title of my book from "HELLO SUSAN, IT'S ME, CANCER!"…to "GUIDED TO WISDOM", mainly because when I revised it and added 4 new chapters the book was no longer about 'cancer' but more about the emotional journey that led to my healing without the use of chemotherapy, radiation and hormone therapy. It is more about the challenges in life and as we move through them, (or not) i.e. depression, not having what we want, feeling stuck, etc, we begin to gain wisdom and power to truly live the lives we love. This book is a guide for getting out of the life that doesn't  feed our soul into one that does. Please feel free to write a review for my book on Amazon, Chapters/Indigo or Promontory Press. I really appreciate the comments about this book as when I began to write it I didn't know how to write a book, my attitude, anger and candid approach opens into a very honest vulnerable and powerful story. I hope you enjoy the read. 
Sincerely, Susan

Riding The Wave's been a while since I have last blogged! Life has been changing very rapidly it seems and as I type those words I realize just how amazing this journey is. I know I am creating my life every day and it has come to my attention lately how negatively I have been thinking the past while.
It seems I have allowed my negative thoughts to rule once again. I have been plagued by this negative thought process for years. Even though I have done tons of emotional releasing of the past, I have forgotten to keep my mind focused on what I want instead of what I don't want. So today I remind myself to imagine my life as I wish it to be. I have created a beautiful life up til now and it came from keeping my mind focused on BEING happy and feeling happy. I remember the years I struggled with depression, most of my life in fact.
The simple answer is; think good thoughts.
Yesterday I got the idea of the mind being in two parts, the childlike part that wants to dream and have fun and the grown up part that worries and is afraid of what 'might happen', (worst case scenario, of course). The childlike part of the mind seems bright and happy while the grown up part seems to be dark and sad. I think I will let the childlike part come out and play for a while. Maybe I needed to allow 'the dark side' to show up so I could see how icky it feels and then smarten up and lighten up. It's my choice how I feel, it took me a long time to realize this. I choose to look at all the blessings in my life, friends, family, work that I love, a roof over my head and food in my tummy. If life is what we make it, I choose to turn over a new leaf and remember I matter, I deserve good things to happen in my life and I AM worth it!

Signs Signs Everywhere a Sign...

Have you ever noticed something and then realized you have been noticing that thing enough times that you noticed you were noticing it?
Sometimes that is a 'sign' that is being conveyed by our higher self to give us a hint or to show us the way of our path.
What we may not know is that we can ask for a 'sign' in order for us to get some validation or confirmation.
A friend of mine wanted validation about something and her and I were hiking up a mountain the following day, so she asked that her 'sign' be 2 feathers.
So up the mountain we went, we came upon a tree where others had put little tokens, there were stones, charms, feathers etc all attached to this tree. There were more than one feather and she thought maybe it was her 'sign'. As we walked further, almost at the end of the hike laying on the mud were two tiny pure white feathers. We looked at the feathers as we walked by and she turned to me and said, "Did you see that"? I indeed did. After contemplating what she had seen she decided to go back and pick them up. These were her validation or 'sign'. Now we could say "ya well we were in the forest on the mountain, there is BOUND to be birds and feathers..." or we could choose to believe.

Another time, a client was wondering how she would know what to do about a situation she was involved in. I explained about asking for a 'sign'. Earlier in the session she wondered if a word she was thinking of was 'really a word'. I brought out a dictionary and we discovered it 'was a word', because it was in the dictionary. She wanted some kind of confirmation about the situation she was involved in. I asked her what 'sign' she wanted to see as that confirmation. She thought that seeing a 4 leaf clover would be her 'sign'. Unbeknown to her the dictionary I had pulled out earlier had about 25 four leaf clovers in it because I seem to find them effortlessly and after finding them I don't really know what to do with them so I put them on the inside cover of this large hard cover dictionary. When I opened the dictionary and showed her all the 4 leaf clovers she seemed a little surprised. She thought she would actually be finding the 4 leaf clover herself. Sometimes it happens quickly and it can come in a way that is not how we thought it would show up. The choice is always ours whether we choose to believe or not.
Me, I believe.

I Wanna Be Just Like Her!

I keep thinking I will do this one for my next speech at Toastmasters (public speaking club) , but maybe I will use it as an inspiration instead.
I went to Toastmasters about 12 times as a 'guest' because I was afraid and unsure about joining the club. May sound silly but it is the truth.
One time members from another club joined ours for the evening. Table topics is a Toastmasters tradition to have members 'think on their feet'
for a maximum of 2 minutes. They are to speak about a topic they only know about when they are called upon.
I went to Toastmasters to have this experience and I felt so nervous sometimes I wished I had just stayed home.
On this particular evening was one of those times I wished I had stayed home, avoiding the whole nerve wracking experience. But here I was sitting in my chair trembling, because I knew sooner or later the Tabletopics person would ask me if I would like to have a turn.
I always said yes because I really did want to overcome my nervousness and anxiety.
They usually asked experienced members to go first so I knew I was OK for a while longer. As one by one the members got up and said their little spiel, I knew my turn was fast approaching. I could feel the anxiety consume me as I sat sweating in my chair, my throat tightened so I could hardly swallow, I desperately wanted a drink from my water bottle but I knew my hands would tremble violently and I didn't want to draw any attention to myself so I sat in anxiety ridden silence. Maybe they were going to call on me next...and I could feel my heart pounding in my chest. But no, they called on someone else. A member from the other club.
The woman stood up and her shoes went "tap, tap, tap" as she headed for the front of the room. She began her little talk with conviction. She spoke as if she truly knew what she was going to speak about and she passionately delivered her message. When she was finished her shoes went "tap, tap, tap" all the way back to her chair.
As I sat in my chair, I could feel my back straighten as I thought to myself, "I want to be just like her!" I want to stand up tall and walk confidently to the front of the room and speak with passion and intelligence.
Sure enough, I was asked next if I would like to give it a try and I accepted. I stood up and headed for the front of the room and even though my shoes sounded more like "clop, clop, clop", I began to speak words that formed coherent sentences and with a little humour thrown in, soon my time was done and my shoes said "clop, clop, clop" all the way back to my seat. I DID IT!!

Finally the Answer to Cancer!!

Finally the answer to Cancer!!
After my own healing from cancer, I finally have a complete understanding of 'it', 5 years later.
I attended an information meeting last night and am absolutely delighted about what I learned! It all makes perfect sense to me. And FINALLY the coming together of like-minded people to discover the answer was discovered YEARS AGO! Here it is........are you ready?...
I am going to tell you the short story of it.
It is that simple. I heard that before but didn't completely understand it.
I even wrote about little bits and pieces of this in my book, but didn't understand it completely because I didn't really know what cancer was.
I know I was totally in fear and I didn't want to study 'cancer' even when they told me I had it because I didn't want my mind to believe something I didn't want to believe.
As I went through my own healing, I did modify my diet somewhat. I always ate quite healthy (but I am by no means perfect in this area or any other). I included more vegetables like kale, swiss chard and spinach.
I did stop eating sweets, even though I DO indeed have a sweet tooth.
I cut way back on anything that had wheat in it.
And of course I released all the rage I had been suppressing and then surrendered to depression that plagued me my entire life.
I am going to write more about what I learned another day as I have some things to attend to that I have been procrastinating about. So stay tuned.

Dreary day

This morning I started out feeling somewhat less than my happy self as I do not appreciate setting the clocks ahead because I am a person who appreciates allot of sleep. I don't like to sleep in, never have, so in order to get up around 6 or 6:30 I need to go to bed early. All this is fine with me except when we 'SPRING' ahead I LOSE an hours sleep! Getting up at 6 is fine with me getting up at 5 ISN'T!!!
So putting that boo hoo story aside, I debated whether I wanted to go for my 2 hour walk to the beach. I decided to go after all and since it was raining it matched my mood.
On the way to the beach I pass through a ravine and climb down many stairs, on the way back I climb up the steps. Today I saw a little animal on the step, it was a black and white cat. I asked it if it was OK and it said MEOW I asked it if it was lost and it said MEOW. I told it to wait there and on my way home if it was still there I would bring it home with me and together we would find its family. I love all animals, but have more experience with dogs. Our latest dog passed away last summer.
On my way home I wondered if that little kitty would still be on the step. Odds were it wouldn't be because many people climb up and down those steps including many dogs, so I was surprised to see it was still there. It looked sick or maybe in shock so I gently picked it up. It vomited on my boots and I thought 'vomiting is good' so we continued up the steps and I carried the little one home, knowing it didn't seem to be doing too well. I talked to it and told it to hang on, and I promised to take care of it. We finally reached my front door and walked into the house where I grabbed an old towel for it to lay on, only to find it had died in my arms while I carried it home.
The animal control person just came by to pick it up. When I told her what had happened she said that it was poisoned. That's why it vomited. She said it may have been rat poison, either the cat ate the rat or the poison. She said it is the slow release formula that causes more deaths. If people would use the fast acting rat poison then the rat dies right away and sort of mummifies, so if you use rat poison please use the fast acting one. I have had experience with rats as well but that is another story.
So I am still feeling a little down today. I think I will just rest in it.
In memory of an innocent young cat on a rainy morning.
love Susan
