Clear Intentions for 2019

 

Christmas 2018 Update:
On one hand, I’m celebrating many great test results received throughout 2018. An ultrasound in September showed three tumors across my chest wall have vanished completely and regular blood tests indicate my tumor markers are well and truly in the ‘normal persons’ range. My MRI and full body bone scans from December indicate my cancer is stable and possibly even retreating in one of my vertebrae.

I’m also feeling more determined then ever, that I can clear this cancer out of my body. I’m happy with my super healthy, balanced low-carb diet and energetically balanced life, my strong immune system; all have all been a great achievements, but I’m feeling like I’m now in the right place on all levels to totally slay this cancer dragon.

I have been fortunate that in the past week I found this new book by U.K cancer out- smarter, Jane McLelland. It’s really a must read for anyone looking to out-smart the dragon that is cancer. Jane has mapped the metabolic pathways of the cancer cells and ways to block these pathways using affordable re-purposed medications, (both over the counter and prescription), alongside close attention to diet and  timing specific exercise.

I’ll keep you updated to how I chose to engage with the new information I’m integrating from the book and how my body responds over the coming months.

I’ve stuck this image of the Goddess Kali to my fridge to inspire me throughout the new year.

Structured Water

For a few months now, Neil and I have been enjoying, and no doubt greatly benefiting form drinking the very best structured water.

We live on a semi-rural property and draw some of our water from underground bore and some from the sky above (when we get rain). It gets stored as one mass in our water tank. Neil keeps the roof, gutters and tank lovely and clean.We have it checked from time to time at a water lab and it always get glowing reports.

We then take that glowing report water from our tank and send it through a couple of carbon filters which we change regularly. And then once the water enters the pipe leading to the kitchen, it passes through a MEA water structuring device.

Learn more here from the experts about how high quality structured water can greatly benefit your health.

This video is an interview with  Rob Gourlay, who’s Australian company makes the device we use. He explains everything we need to know about structured water and healing in an easy to follow way.

And, I didn’t stop there…
Last week we purchased a second hand i-health sauna and the day we got it home I found myself thinking about how my water intake would need to increase each day now I would be sweating so much more. Then I remembered that I had heard an interview in which gem water was discussed suddenly felt an urge to create a gem water jug in my kitchen. I did just that.

Inside a small narrow glass beaker ( a found it at the op shop – it was once a part of a small milk frothing device)  I placed rose quartz, clear quartz, aquamarine, amethyst and citrine. I covered these gems with water ( not to be drunk, just to cover them). I then placed this glass beaker full of gems and water inside my water jug. Making sure that the top of it was ‘not’ under water.  I don’t want the gems to physically come in contact with the drinking water. I just want their gemstone frequencies to further structure the drinking water indirectly.
It tastes great, looks so beautiful on the kitchen bench ( my water jug is glass too) And I’m drinking loads more great water and getting in touch with my sincere intentions for healing and thriving as I do.

 

Diet

I love to learn about people and their personal healing journeys. Everyone shares something  different about what works for them. Most people who talk about healing cancer naturally seem to place a great deal of attention on what they eat and don’t eat.
I do not believe that their is just one cancer healing diet. I believe that there are many different healing diets that help many different people.

Immediately following the secondary breast cancer diagnosis in 2017, I went on the Ketogenic for Cancer Diet for 6 months. This diet cuts of the cancer’s first main food supply which is glucose. Going full ‘Keto’ was a great way to increase my sense of mental clarity and physical energy. Focusing so much attention on learning about and practicing the keto for cancer diet was also a great way for me to deal with the initial trauma of hearing such dis-empowering words from my oncologist.

I found that making such a dramatic change in my eating habits allowed me to exercise my “need to control’ a situation that felt totally out of control. I was able to poor all that ‘need to control’ into weighing and recording my macro nutrients and micro nutrients, taking and recording blood samples and shopping for new ingredients for my new fat burning fuel system.

Below are links to the apps that helped me get into and stay in a state of ketosis.

I used the Keto Diet app to get me started, and after a couple of months I moved over to the cronometer in order to get a better understanding of my micro-nutrient levels.

One year in, I am no longer strictly Keto and I enjoy a little fruit, and more vegetables than I did at first. I now steer clear of all bread, grains, white potatoes, sugars and processed foods.

These videos below are great resources to support understanding re. the correct ratios of protein, carbs and fats. The one on the different types of fasting and feasting is worth a watch too, For many people ketosis is the first step but fasting needs to be included to remain healthy.

I make an effort to eat plenty of healthy fats, fresh vegetables… and I still eat meat.
Since I switched to keto, and then to super low carb, my brain is sharper all day, and my body feels much leaner and free from inflammation, aches and pains. I also consume loads of ginger and turmeric both wonderful in their fresh or supplement form for reducing inflammation and pain throughout the body.

I’ll share more about my diet later, but for now I recommend anyone interested in cutting off the first main fuel source feeding many types of cancer cells to read this book. I believe it is the current number one resource, for all things ketogenic for cancer. I recommend this book to people who do not have cancer but are interested in finding the best resources to support them in making the change from a primarily glucose to a primarily fat burning body. The author has listed so many resources within this book. It’s gold! It was not written when I first went Keto; it would have made my life so much easier if it was.

Update April 2019:
I am no longer doing anything Ketogenic,  and now have a deeper understanding about how cancer feeds thanks to Jane McLelland’s book ‘How to Starve Cancer without Starving Yourself’.  I now believe that many cancer’s can start off preferring glucose over fats or proteins but over time their feeding patterns will shift.

Here’s a link to an interview that Jane the author of “How to starve Cancer…” did recently with Chris Wark, which I hope helps you understand this book:

I now run a private FB support group dedicated to better understanding this book.
We are are friendly group and already over 600 strong.
Message me if you would like to join in and have trouble finding it; I will invite you in.
