MY SUDDEN DIAGNOSIS 

In June of this year, 2018, I found out that I had stage 4 Pancreatic Cancer. Literally out of the blue my life changed overnight! Imagine one day you think you’re healthy, life is normal, and the next day someone tells you you have months left to live. Well that’s exactly what happened to me. But instead of panicking, I embraced this as a positive challenge, a monumental opportunity for growth, and a preliminary step to a profound awakening.  As the doctors looked at me piteously while giving me the grim news, I smiled and said “Ok, great…I’m glad I know now. I know all will be fine.” Peace flowed over me. Acceptance. Joy. I cannot describe the relief I felt just from finding out what was wrong with me – or the fact that there was something actually wrong, despite x-rays and blood work that always confirmed I was healthy.

LIFE BEFORE STAGE 4

Meanwhile, for some years most likely, unbeknownst to me, I was working up to stage 4 pancreatic, and even the few more recent emergency room visits and doctors could not detect it, sending me home to take Tylenol for pain! I am one who believes in the daily practice of positive affirmations – so I had always affirmed “I am well, I am in perfect health.”  Yet, even though I believed and affirmed I was in perfect health, I had been suffering with bouts of mysterious pains in my left upper and  lower abdomen and upper chest (which took me to the emergency room on several occasions), and gastrointestinal digestive issues. I had a feeling something had to be fixed at a much deeper level, and that there was something ‘stuck,’ blocking my energy and body’s ability to absorb nutrients.

After lymph node biopsy which detected a stage 4 carcinoma tumor, sitting on top of two blood clots on my left side; and a thyroid biopsy the next day.

HOW I FOUND OUT

It was a dentist’s visit that ended up sending me to the emergency room in early June, where they identified two blood clots, one on my jugular vein and one on the subclavian lymph node in my left neck (right above the clavicle bone), with a carcinoma tumor the size of a small lime. A few days prior, I went to see my dentist to fit me for a new crown. The next day I noticed pain in my neck on the same side where the work was done. Bacteria seeped into my lymph node, which was already clogged no doubt, and it erupted like a volcano pushing the tumor out. Did you know that numerous root canals can lead to cancer and massive toxicity in the body over time?

EMERGENCY ROOM FINDING

A few days later the whole left side of my neck was swollen and red, and I could hardly move my neck.  Once at the emergency room I got immediately admitted into the hospital for extensive blood work and tests, I received my diagnosis of stage 4 pancreatic cancer which had spread to my liver and lymph nodes. My lymph glands had swollen every where in my body, especially in my stomach and neck, and I was also diagnosed with acute gastritis and esophagitis. I could hardly eat, as the swelling of lymph nodes continued into my left arm where additional blood clots were identified. I was put on blood thinners right away. The initial concern was that the blood clots in my neck and on the jagular vein were in such close proximity to the brain and the heart. Somehow despite all this, I knew everything would be fine. In a matter of hours people began praying for me, especially my immediate spiritual community at my church. The prayers were so intense that I felt as if my body was being lifted, and began experiencing an unprecedented state of peace and blissfulness. I felt so incredibly light, and so calm. I can attest to the divine power of prayer. God was ever-present.

LIFE AND DEATH

They call pancreatic cancer ‘the silent killer’ because it’s not easily detectable, even though I had had blood work regularly over the years, including ultrasounds and x-rays. The hardest part of all this was breaking the news to my family. I could take it no problem. After all it was only a diagnosis as far as I saw it and not a life sentence. I don’t believe in the allopathic medical system, and I took everything they told me with a grain of salt. I always knew that if push came to shove, I would never be a victim of our medical system. I am actually one of these people that doesn’t fear death, because I know with full faith what lies beyond.  My life has always revolved around my strong spiritual practice and unwavering faith in God, karma, and the soul’s destiny and purpose. Death for me is a mere transition from the physical body, into the energy body and beyond, and part of our cosmic evolution.

“I’LL DO IT MY WAY”

My life philosophy and spiritual path is based on detachment and surrendering to a higher power, through a deep connection to the Higher Self. But I also believe in fighting for my life now, because God helps those who help themselves! And I am convinced that through my trials, facing and ultimately overcoming cancer, I can and will help others become more educated in making treatment choices, and empower them to realize that cancer is treatable and not a death sentence. As a holistic health and nutrition coach, yoga therapist, and wellness counselor I have always made it my personal business to educate myself and bring healing and support to those who seek it. I also have offered this support freely, deriving the greatest joy from giving and sharing the gift of life and health.

LOVING CANCER

I believe that cancer saved my life! It is not an enemy. We shouldn’t hate and ‘fight’ cancer. Why? Because then we are fighting and hating ourselves. Cancer has to be accepted. It’s part of my body now. And I choose to heal it with love and care. I even give it thanks. What is the strongest universal energy and vibration? Love. Love heals. It takes a certain understanding to get this: you have to love yourself to heal yourself, and love the cancer because it is part of your body.

KILLING VS. LOVING

Instead of wanting to ‘kill’ cancer you transform it. You accept it and release it. You shift consciousness. Isn’t that the message for the ages: Don’t fight aggression with aggression? Cancer manifests in the body when the cells are completely overwhelmed by toxins, and the body can no longer process and expel all the junk that has accumulated over time for individually specific reasons. Why get mad at the body for trying to do its job?

Cancer cells are always present in our bodies, but they do not become active unless our immune system runs down and becomes overloaded with expelling toxins. When cancer turns into a tumor, that tumor actually isolates all the cancer cells in one spot so they don’t run rampantly throughout the body and spread. If the tumor is not detected early, the cancer cells will multiply throughout the body and spread. Once I understood that, I began thanking my cells, even the cancerous ones, for trying to protect me. For fighting for me all this time! They were overwhelmed. Forgiveness-in-an-Ugly-WorldI felt love and sympathy for what my body had endured.

TIME TO HEAL

I now send love to my liver and pancreas and my lymph nodes. I do this multiple times of day now, and talk to my cells and guide them towards healing. The first thing that I was told that made the most sense after my diagnosis was “cancer is not trying to kill you, it’s trying to heal you!” This statement came from a remarkable woman who cured herself of cancer and who guided me to the best possible clinic for integrative cancer treatment, where she also received care. I met her via an email through a friend who suggested I contact her, and in less than 24 hours after we talked she brought me down to this amazing place just outside the country, and put me in the hands of the most amazing medical team. I am so grateful. She saved my life. Truly God sent. And I plan to pass it forward!

COUNTDOWN TO FULL RECOVERY

IMG_1629Since I have been here, going on my fifth week of treatment, my cancer markers have gone down, and the tumor in my neck has shrunk by 70%! And I continue to make unprecedented progress, despite that I was given only months to live (from the traditional doctors of course). Having to unexpectedly finance the cost of this treatment out of pocket all alone, I have been blessed with the outstanding support of friends and acquaintances who started a GoFundMe link, to help me receive my first weeks of  crucial treatment at no cost, but the additional weeks and months needed are not covered beyond next week (July 30, 2018)! Yet, I have full faith that I will somehow be granted the opportunity to continue my treatment through further divinely guide shares and contributions. I have to maintain my progress as the doctors advised me here at the clinic this week, with follow up visits after departure. I wanted to share my story  in real time, and I will continue to do so, because my journey may inspire others to carve out their own journey, where radical healing is possible despite all circumstances.

MY MISSION AND PROMISE

I want to heal for myself and for the world. So I can make a difference. So I can show others that there are so many possibilities to overcome this, and to guide others as I have been guided. Once you understand that cancer is a gift in disguise and go beyond fear, have the right tools and resources to seek the proper treatment – including a more non-conventional alternative based and integrative approach (because it works!) – then the rest is history. I never wanted to look in the mirror and see an emaciated person with no hair staring back at me. So instead, I opted to keep my body intact without destroying it from the inside out, and to work for and with my immune system, and not kill it with inhumane maximum doses of poorly targeted chemotherapy and radiation.  The results speak for themselves, as my weekly GoFundMe Updates so far indicate, but far more work is needed both financially and treatment wise!

In Life and Death: In Memory of Annelise, The Angel Who Saved My Life (1970-2018)

IMG_1210I found out a few days ago that the woman I called my Healing Angel, passed away here in Mexico, just a few minutes away from where I live now and continue to receive treatment. Annelise saved me from the hands of death in June, when I didn’t know where to go to save my life, except far from any American hospital where my death would have been certain within a month or two. Just two days out of the hospital where I got my diagnosis in Los Angeles, I prayed that God provide me with an immediate alternative solution, refusing to undergo standardized chemotherapy, which I have been told by doctors here would have killed me within a short time. The next day I checked my email, and was forwarded through the friend of a friend Annelise’s contact information, who happened to live only 5 minutes away from me. I knew that had to be a sign. I felt such a surge of energy, something I cannot explain, knowing that somehow my prayer had been granted. Minutes later, I heard the most loving voice on the other end of my phone, and I immediately felt like I was talking to a friend from a long long time ago. 

She was so loving, so real, so happy to talk to me, a mere stranger who randomly called her to ask for help. I tried not to choke up and keep my voice calm, although my heart was throbbing with an indescribable panic, feeling like with every moment I was running out of time – a countdown to an early death sentence.  I shared that I had just been handed a terminal pancreatic cancer diagnosis, and before I could say another word she stopped me. I will never forget what she said. “Don’t be afraid my dear, cancer is not here to kill you, it’s here to heal you! You are not going to die from this, you are going to heal!” She shared with me how she cured herself of stage 4 breast cancer using alternative treatments, never setting foot in a conventional hospital. Then went on to share that unfortunately the cancer had metastasized to her liver, and found herself in a life and death situation suddenly over night. I listened and waited for her to tell me how she was still here and thriving, with a pen in my hand ready to scribble any information she might give me. And then finally she told me how she got herself to this clinic in Mexico just in the nick of time, with her liver so swollen that she looked nine months pregnant. She spent the most excruciating week fighting for her life last November, receiving integrative alternative treatment that saved her life, and made her go into remission shortly thereafter. And then out of the blue she asked me, ”I am going down to the clinic where they saved my life in Mexico tomorrow for a check up, do you want to take the train down with me?” Without even thinking, I said “Yes!!! I am packing now. I am coming to Mexico with you tomorrow!” And that is how our friendship began! I will never forget her beaming face with the most radiant, colossal smile. She carried my bags for me on the train, all five of them, even though her back hurt. I was too weak with a large tumor sticking out of my neck. She was my heroine! She made sure to arrange everything for me; called and set up that I would receive treatment right away, and within two days I was receiving crucial IV’s and had a program set in place for the next eight weeks. 

Last time I saw her was six weeks ago. Her beautiful radiant smile was gone for some unknown reason. Her face had changed. It was more serious. Unbeknownst to me or her perhaps at the time, the cancer had unexpectedly found her way into her bones. It had been festering there for a long time undetected. She never complained or said much about how she felt. She was a trooper. I invited her to come to visit me so I could make us dinner. She gently smiled and said maybe. That was the last time I spoke to her and saw her. I heard she fell and fractured her spine and went into excruciating pain less than two weeks ago.  I knew nothing of this at the time. I myself was dealing with major bone pain and getting treated at another clinic. I could never have imagined a week later she would no longer be alive. She was the star at the clinic where she initially brought me. The golden child who got healed and went on to help others. All the nurses were shocked and crying, and the owner of the clinic who had become her friend was inconsolable 

Annelise saved my life, but brought me close the brink of death with her own passing. She was my role model. I planned to be like her: miraculously healed. And now dealing with her sudden passing, I am so much closer to staring death in the face, and reflecting on my own mortality. You see, I could have been her! Eight weeks ago when the cancer went into my spine I was suddenly immobilized and crippled with pain. Had I not received the urgent and precise treatment for my bones when I did, who knows what would have happened. I came close to the abyss myself, yet somehow through my faith and through the help and kindness of people supporting me on this journey I have been able to elude the unthinkable. Everyday counts like you wouldn’t believe. I realize how unimportant the big goals I once had now seem. All I want to do is just be able to go for a walk, or sit on a bench and watch children play in the park. All I want to do is just sit and breathe. Each breath is cherished, each moment poignant beyond belief. The simplicity of life is magnanimous. I have heard of the fires back home in Los Angeles. I have seen people cry for their homes. But you see, nothing that’s built of stone or wood matters. These people are alive. I hope they realize how blessed they are.

I hope you all realize the fullness of your life now. The fullness of the simple moments that matter the most. Before you ever get to experience the fragility of your own being you must awaken to this reality: nothing else matters except the act of being alive. The overlooked gift of simply being alive and healthy is the greatest high. It’s ecstatic just waking up to see another day. Trust me. Nothing else is as precious as this. 

If you would like to make a tremendous difference and contribute toward my continued and extensive treatment, including newly scheduled biological dental work to remove dangerous heavy metals from my root canals and old mercury fillings which are suppressing my immune system, please kindly donate to my GoFundMe here. And share this story with others who have inspired you with their friendship – and maybe even saved your life! You will be giving me the GIFT OF LIFE. And in turn, I, like Annelise, will continue to guide others to receive the treatments that I know are saving me, so I can hopefully save other families from experiencing the loss of a loved one. 

I am paying it forward, my dear Annelise. May you continue to guide others from above. You will always be remembered as the Angel who saved my life. 

 


Healing Beyond Physical Limitations: Transcending Fear and Suffering (PartI)

IMG_0784I always considered myself a fearless person. I have been told I am. I could live in a remote forest or area all alone. I go on silent retreats, and love the inner journey of solitude and contemplation. I never feel lonely or scared. When I first got diagnosed this past June with what is considered probably the most severe terminal illness, I remained fear-less. I even scrutinized myself to see if I would begin to falter in my fearlessness. But I didn’t waver. First of all I don’t fear death. And second, I don’t fear a diagnosis given to me by people who choose, yes, choose, to live ensconced in the consciousness of a limiting and vastly unconscious material world. When a someone with little understanding of the all encompassing mind-body-spirit energy realm of pure consciousness, which imbues everything allowing for infinite possibilities to manifest (if we put our will behind it), tells me that I am limited by time and illness – I absolutely don’t believe it. If you don’t believe in something, you have no fear of it! Right? One of my favorite definitive quotes by Paramahansa Yogananda, my spiritual teacher is,  “Everytime you feel limitation, close your eyes and say, ‘I am the infinite.’”

Everything is stored in the body! Remember this. Fear, sadness, trauma, betrayal, low-self esteem, rejection – they all need to have a vehicle or container. Nothing remains suspended in the ether for too long; even an idea which becomes an emotion (if we allow it) starts out as a thought-form in the energy field of the body. So many books have been written on how one can heal himself of an illness by getting to the root of the emotional dis-ease, which inevitably takes the shape of a tumor or chronic disorder. Most women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer had experienced severe trauma or sadness in intimate relationships. When they work on addressing that emotional pain, and releasing that toxic energy, healing takes place. There are countless people who have experienced spontaneous remissions of deadly diseases by merely going within to do inner work, and then bingo….their disease disappeared. This is what I am doing. Every day. While the doctors put IV’s in my veins, and administer various treatments, I try to stay less on the surface, and be observant of what lies beneath the waves.

SOF_Hebrews-11-1Some have wondered how I could remain composed, and not give into fear. It’s simple: I don’t entertain my mind with anything negative or fearful. That’s one reason I don’t watch TV. I don’t want anything to pollute my consciousness. I don’t think of things I do not want, or are not conducive to my wellbeing. And above all, I try to remain in the present moment, and don’t think of myself as any different than before. As a matter of fact I never once referred to myself as a cancer patient or ever said ‘I have cancer.’ Why would I associate myself with a disease? I am Claudia. I am not going to wear the badge of a victim. I would rather focus on ’the big task and opportunity’ I have been given to now fully succeed in my life! With objectivity, introspection, and emotional detachment each one of us can learn to detach from the concept of fear. The first thing to stop fear in it’s tracks is to remain in the present moment. Not to fantasize about what might or might not happen. Fear is not a thing, remember. It is only some-thing perceived by the mind. It has no shape or form; or real substance. Fear is simply a learned habit. It’s like a poisoned apple handed down from generation to generation. It might as well be called a habit, not an emotion.

Bcp0AxThere is a caveat when it comes to cauterizing fear and accepting change: Faith! You need to put your faith in SOME THING in order to conquer fear. That’s what I did. Most people might put their faith in doctors, but I knew to fully put my faith in God and My Self. To me, having faith in oneself is synonymous with having faith in the higher power which is God, or whatever you choose to call the Supreme Universal Power. I realized a while ago, that not to have faith in myself, meant not to have faith in God. Why? Because as Jesus clearly said it, ‘My Father and I are One’…‘Don’t ye know that ye are Gods?’ I see myself as being ONE with the Divine, that I am certain of. There are times when I get physically low, and have to muster up all the strength I have to remind myself of this magnanimous truth. And standing by this truth, I believe that what’s divine is mine! I have the power to create, to will things into reality, and to manifest on the same level as my Creator. WE ALL DO! The secret ingredient is FAITH.

49814-Edwin-Louis-Cole-Quote-Have-faith-in-God-God-has-faith-in-youFaith is the fuel behind any manifestation! When Jesus healed, he would ask the person receiving the healing, ‘do you believe?’  The person who ‘believed’ healed instantly. Faith is to believe in something before you see it manifested before your eyes. You have to believe it to see it! Faith bypasses mind and logic, it springs from the core of one’s being. To have faith in our own divinity grants us what we ultimately need to succeed! And that means having full fledged faith in ourselves. To succeed in anything you have to believe in your own power to create. I am excited to have the opportunity to show what we can all accomplish by connecting to our own source of power, drawing inexhaustible strength from the source itself!

In her groundbreaking book, Anatomy of the Spirit, medical intuitive and theologian Caroline Myss writes, ‘Habit is a hell to which people cling in an attempt to stop the flow of change.’ Do you realize that most suffering comes from our resistance to change? We are such creatures of habit! Unfortunately, most of them bad. Yet, we spend our lives trying to avoid any changes that might threaten our sense of false security, rather than accept the otherwise unavoidable truth that change is something we cannot control. If you can understand that change is unavoidable, and that change is nothing to fear, you can accept any circumstance in your life with a positive, rather than bleak attitude. I accepted this change in my life with gratitude, despite the grim reality other people might experience. My trial is a change for a better future, and I know that through this change I finally get to manifest my life’s purpose!

self-confidence-2076793_1920Even when I first learned about my diagnosis, I chose to go along with this sudden ‘change;’ not to oppose or deny it! And trust me, a sudden illness foreshadows immediate changes in every aspect of one’s life. So instead of resisting the inevitable, I conserved my energy and intuitively shifted my consciousness to my FAITH in a higher, pre-ordained purpose designed to unfold as a result of all this. I knew – there is a reason for all this! The Divine Creator, God, The Universe doesn’t make mistakes! That I am sure of. We are the ones who make a mess of things! We mess up our lives, our health, and create wars, then blame God for all of it. Part of integral healing involves taking responsibility for our own actions. Taking responsibility for our own thoughts and emotions, and the devastating consequences they might have on our health. *I will write more about this in Part 2 of this essay.

IFKOD00ZCaroline Myss writes in relation to how our thinking and habits impact our health, body, and spiritual evolution, ‘Make your choices wisely, because each choice you make is a creative act of spiritual power for which you are held responsible. Further, any choice made from faith has the full power of Heaven behind it. Faith the size of a mustard seed can move a mountain, said Jesus. Any choice made from fear is a violation of the energy of Faith.’ Acting on faith and exercising my will power is the key to manifesting the reality I want for myself. I hope each and every person reading this will contemplate on their incredible potential, and manifest health, creativity, abundance, and joy in their life, reversing the course of an impending emotional trial or illness. Ultimately healing and transformation lies in our own hands. We just have to acknowledge our fears and limitations, and move beyond them! Above all, we have to acknowledge our OWN divine power, and water it with abundant drops of Faith.


Only ONE: Healing Through Oneness (Vlog)

 

“Health is the best gift, contentment the best wealth, trust the best kinsman, nirvana the greatest joy.” The Buddha

My cancer journey has awakened me into a new Reality. I no longer feel disconnected from the rest of the world. I am the world! And the world is inside of me! We are all inter-connected. I am a vast body, and as Samkhya philosophy expounds, which is the basis of Vedantic philosophy, each human being is a Microcosm, and part of a vast universal Macrocosm. The Universe is not only outside of us, it is also inside us! The Buddha means ‘the awakened one.’ I’ve always wanted to attain Nirvana or enlightenment, that ultimate state of self-realized or awakened existence. Just like the great Gautama The Buddha himself. The basis of his teaching and message – oneness, compassion, and our microcosmic bodies encompassing the Universe, are rooted in Samkhya philosophy. It is also part of Paramahansa Yogananda’s, my Guru’s teachings. In fact the whole science of Yoga and Self-Realization is based on these teachings.

Forgiveness-in-an-Ugly-World

Now I can finally say, that I understand what that means. You see, I am gradually awakening. That is why from the beginning of my diagnosis I saw this as the opportunity of a lifetime – the greatest gift – only if I were up to the challenge of course. And I was! I immediately recognized the opportunity for growth and transformation! This video/vlog is my story;  and my journey in re-connecting to Life. It is the beginning of my awakening. When you face your greatest fears head on, the light comes on.

If you feel inspired to share my story and this video, I invite you to visit my GoFundMe page: ‘Urgent Help Needed 4 Claudia Ghetu’ (link below), where this video is also posted as my latest health Update. You will see other posts which may inspire you, and read how it is possible to overcome the worst possible obstacles, including fear and misdiagnosis – something I experienced and share in my posts. If it weren’t for the support of hundreds of remarkable people, I many not be alive today, and making extraordinary progress, as my Updates on GoFundMe will document. Regular chemotherapy would have sent me straight into a coma, as I was later told by my current amazing integrative oncologist; which is why I refused traditional treatment. They gave me only a 2% chance to live, and less than 6 months life span with chemo – in short a false death sentence, which no one should accept or have to endure. Yet, I am beating unbeatable pancreatic cancer! Thanks to all of you who have contributed, I can continue to do my work in the world, and assist others in accessing emotional and physical healing tools, while guiding them towards proper integrative medical care, which almost always guarantees the highest recovery rate, even from terminal illnesses! To learn more about my diagnosis this past June and my approach to embracing – not fighting- terminal cancer I invite you to read my story ‘How Cancer is Healing Me.’

It is only through our sheer will power that we can defy duality. If old patterns of thought and actions are not serving your own evolution, use Goddess Tara as an example of how she vowed to become awakened defying all limitations. I am Tara. You are Tara. Male or female doesn’t exist. That’s duality. The Supreme Spirit is ONE; male and female. We are one with the Supreme Spirit, God, Brahman, or Universal Intelligence. We just have to WAKE UP and realize that. Liberation begins with wanting to wake up into a higher self-awareness, seeing reality as it is, not mind manufactured fiction – and shifting our perception.

You Don’t Have To Die! The Misleading Medical Prognosis About My Terminal Diagnosis and Crucial Tips on How You Can Avoid Being Misdiagnosed

IMG_1004 (1)

“If you are inspired to offer your kind support so I can continue to serve others, and read about my latest progress, please visit and share my  GoFundMe page. 

“If you have the will to live, the faith to survive, and the intelligence to think on your own, you have a good chance of survival… Healing is not for the weak of heart or those with a lack of faith.” – CancerTutor.com

I will never forget what happened just one day after receiving my diagnosis of Stage 4 Pancreatic Cancer, this past June. I was sitting in my hospital bed with a dear friend visiting me, discussing my dilemma over receiving urgent chemotherapy, as had been indicated by the staff oncology doctor who delivered the news. He said, ‘you need to pick an oncologist through your primary right away, and have a catheter put in immediately to start receiving chemo…you don’t have any time to lose.’ I looked at him and said, ‘this is not something I can decide right away. I need time to think if this is the best option for me.’ He looked at me as if I told him that aliens had just landed on Earth and were soon to invade the hospital. I am alive now because I exercised my power of reason and free will under pressure, with faith as my anchor!

IMG_1003 copyI understand in retrospect that the kind of answer I gave is something doctors are not used to hearing. After all, they are not used to having their authority challenged. They are the modern day demi-gods in white coats, who wave their magic prognosis wands, administer complex drug potions, and are unquestionably trusted and credited with the ability to save lives. They give you the gift of life. Or death.  My prognosis was death. Should it have been? And why didn’t the doctor give me some positive information, including other possible treatment options, and put me at least in the 50/50 survival range? Why wasn’t I at least told about the Kelly Metabolic Protocol, and given a glimpse of hope? Incidentally, I only found out about the latter amazing program that cures incurable cancers and various other diseases at the clinic where I am getting treated here in Mexico. And it’s a treatment that can be done at home!

734c15b950346710079ebb47bcbfe2d7“Dr. William Donald Kelley contended this cancer protocol had a 93 percent cure rate on newly diagnosed cancer patients, even including pancreatic cancer and liver cancer. How could it be that successful? The Kelley enzymes strip the unique protein coating off of cancer cells so the immune system can identify and kill the cancer cells. Dr. Kelley and his practitioners treated more 33,000 patients, claiming a 93 percent success rate for those who came to him before — not after — chemotherapy, radiation, or surgery. For those with a predicted life expectancy of about three months, he said that a well-designed nutritional program would yield “slightly better than a 50-50 chance of survival.” So this means, in my opinion, the stats that are given in hospitals should be taken with a grain of salt. People were made to believe the Earth was flat, remember? 

rocks-2Getting back to why the doctor didn’t discuss other treatment options and walked away in dismay shaking his head, the answer to that is very simple. Because they are only supposed to give you a prognosis based on their own conventional treatments, which are not in line with the latest and more highly advanced medical developments and treatment options available out of the country or practiced privately. Think of a salesman trying to sell you a car. They’re not going to tell you where else you can go spend your money to get a car besides his own dealership. That’s would be inconceivable, right? Especially if the the Big Boss is reputed to hear everything behind the scenes, and can take his sales badge away at a moment’s notice, then prosecute him. So the doctors pick their bosses and they stick to their bosses’ rules. And there’s really just one Big Boss at the top.

loving-life-quotes-1

To add to that, most doctors unwaveringly believe that all the scientific medical studies they have access and are exposed to during medical school is accurate and indisputable. Yet, these studies are based on inconclusive and misleading case studies and medical histories which selectively publish high failure rates for pancreatic and other cancers or various diseases. On the other side of the coin, they publish only the positive test results of drugs and their effectiveness, based on selective trial studies, dismissing the negative results of tests which usually far outweigh the latter. These don’t get published.

As I found out, mostly the negative findings are published in the medical journals! This is called selective publishing. Let’s say out of 100 case studies of patients with pancreatic cancer, if 40 die shortly after treatment, but 60 recover, the consensus is to deliver the outcome only on the deaths. The patients who recover or so called ‘spontaneous recoveries’ and are not acknowledged or discussed in the medical community. They are considered flukes and seen as ‘unscientific’ recoveries because they don’t match the text book criteria and challenge the status quo. Watch this highly informative and potentially  life saving TED talk, “What Doctors Don’t Know About the Drugs They Prescribe,” by Dr. Ben Goldacre. You will understand perfectly.

YogaSo back to my story, the intent of which is to share my personal experiences and findings, so you and your loved ones don’t have to experience something which can easily be avoided! Most important thing I’ve learned is: EVERYTHING CAN BE CURED! However, mental attitude is probably responsible for 80% of your success! Staying level headed and thinking outside the box will most likely save your life. And as I always say, “What you don’t know WILL kill you.” This will most likely be the title of one of my books, so look out for it because I plan to live a very long life! Your support in sharing my findings and story will ensure I continue to do the work I am destined to do, and will hopefully help many who may otherwise become victims of the system.

Picture100Crucial Advice When Receiving A Diagnosis Or Seeking Medical Advice

  1. When you get a scary diagnosis, don’t panic; go into research mode instead and keep calm. Remember you are just getting an opinion, not a life sentence.
  2. If you fail to get a diagnosis and are wasting months going to specialists and waiting for referrals, skip immediately to #3.
  3. Go to a well reputed alternative or integrative clinic or doctor for a re-evaluation, which will also allow you to tap into a network of alternative state-of-the-art healing options and resources you never know existed.
  4. Connect to patients from those clinics and get their feedback and ask for further referrals.
  5. Take a ‘medical tourism vacation’ out of the country and schedule MRI’s and a PET scan, which are usually impossible to obtain unless you are already diagnosed and usually far advanced in the disease. This is preventive care! Forget X-rays or blood tests which show nothing useful or conclusive most of the time.
  6. Get all your medical records printed or on a portable disk from all your tests, and doctors visits and have them ready and available at all times.
  7. Get a passport, or make sure it’s up to date. Be prepared to travel on short notice.
  8. Establish a support network of family, spiritual community and friends who are aligned with your core views, who are positive, and will 100% support your choices. If that is not feasible – Fly Solo! It is best to do this alone than to deal with people who disempower or scare you!
  9. Consult with a Holistic Nutritionist or Naturopath at the earliest, and radically modify your diet, focusing on plant protein, natural supplements, juicing and detoxing. I believe going vegan is the best option, as that is what is done in the most advanced clinics with high recovery rates. At least go vegetarian! Remember, be obsessed with your health not your taste buds!
  10. Plan in advance to have available cash and to pay out of pocket costs in excess of 30K to start, downsize, and get rid of or sell anything you don’t need that could go towards your treatment. You will be glad you prepared in advance!

The Unethical and Harmful Effects of a Paleo Diet!

“In 2005, T. Colin Campbell, PhD and his son Thomas M. Campbell, MD, shared the China Project findings along with additional research with the world in The China Study. This groundbreaking book examined the connection between nutrition and heart disease, diabetes, and cancer and the source of nutritional confusion produced by powerful lobbies, government entities, and opportunistic scientists. The revised and expanded edition includes new content, statistics, research and information about the changing medical system and how patients stand to benefit from a surging interest in plant-based nutrition. The China Study is hailed as one of the most important books about diet and health ever written.”

Here is my short synopsis on the Paleo diet: HIGHLY HAZARDOUS TO YOUR HEALTH!

The overly hyped Paleo diet is the number one cause for the inflammation of joints and tissue in the body, inflammation being the number one cause for disease, including cancer, and is detrimental for your longterm health and physical and mental degeneration later in life. Atherosclerosis sound good as a retirement plan? Premature aging? Then keep eating meat! You are sure to get there! Eating high amounts of protein taxes the organs especially the liver and kidneys, and excessive uric acid is produced, which causes another retirement option: gout!!!

Meat eaters are also prone to excessive anger and emotionality – as the energy derived from meat is considered ‘tamasic’ in Ayurvedic science. Tamasic is anything that contains negative imprints of energy. Think how a food you eat was raised, processed, and treated. As we are all part of the food chain – especially on an energetic quantum level – you are what you eat! Taking the flesh and energy of an abused, animal loaded with antibiotics, hormones, and forced to live in small stalls while force fed unnatural foods, is seriously detrimental to your health! Their cortisol level is really high out of panic at the time of slaughter and their blood coagulates, and when that meat/blood enters your system the unusually high cortisol level stimulates your adrenal glands. When people suffer adrenal stress because of excess adrenal stimulation they can’t sleep, they are hyperactive, they can’t digest well, and of course they are nervous wrecks. Also, think of the most savage and aggressive civilizations and invaders in history. They were excessive meat eaters! Notice the difference in how you feel after you eat a healthy well rounded salad, and a piece of steak. While the meat rots in your system and puts your digestive tract into overdrive, you feel sluggish and full. When you eat live foods, or easily digestible plant protein you feel light and alive. My motto is: Be addicted to your health, not your taste buds!

Want a cure for your insomnia and anxiety? For chronic tiredness, lack of flexibility and agility too? Become vegetarian! Research has shown for decades that vegetarian countries and cultures – think Thailand – are extremely kind, happy, and compassionate. The are also active, mobile people. They weigh less and live longer!  The people who have lived the longest, unknown to most who don’t venture to learn anything beyond what’s on the news or on social media, are vegetarian and fruitarians. Yes, there are people who lived and live exclusively on fruits or other botanicals including nuts, and who are centenarians. If you consider yourself a nature lover but eat abused animals who are yelled at and electrocuted so that you can have a nice piece of steak at your favor meat joint, then you are somewhat of a hypocrite. Animals are part of nature! You should love and help them, and maybe you will learn something from these four legged creatures. They have so much to teach us humans! And one last note. Paleo eaters are the top contributors to global warming. You should look that up if it perks your interest, and if you consider yourself to be an environmentalist. So my dear human friends, be kind and wise.  Learn about yourself for yourself. And then teach others.

The China Syndrome is one of the most fascinating books ever written about meat eaters, and the effects of meat on the human body and psyche. Get it, and order a salad for dinner!

FRIENDLINESS & EMPATHY: THE MISSING LINK IN HOW YOU EXPERIENCE THE WORLD, AND HOW THE WORLD RESPONDS BACK TO YOU!

3fa6226f8147a41b385458a9f310c6b8

“The vibrations of the world pass through your body. There is a constant exchange of magnetism between you and your surroundings and the people with whom you come in contact…Cultivate within yourself the spiritual magnetism which is in Christ and Krishna and all the masters. In order to do this, you have to become unselfish; you must express selfless love for all. Try always to be helpful. Develop your usefulness daily to your family, community, to your friends. Be willing to help wherever you are. ” (Paramahansa Yogananda, The Divine Romance).

How good natured, helpful, or friendly are you towards others? Do you just look straight forward, like a horse on a race track, engrossed in your own world most of the time, as if your time is the the only time that counts? How willing or able are you to genuinely experience the joys, sorrows or needs of others, and make yourself emotionally available beyond mere appearances? If you were to look deep within, do you experience envy or annoyance at times when others share their good news with you, or ask you for a favor? I once had a self proclaimed ‘spiritual-sister’ tell me: “You always know who your true friends are in LA by whoever makes the time to come to the airport to pick you up.” A few months later I asked her if she could please pick me up when I got in from an overseas flight. Being relatively new to LA, public airport transport was a daunting enigma which I could not unravel at the time, hence needing the guidance of my native friend.  She unapologetically declined, saying it was too late for her, and advised me to try to figure out where I can find an Uber (which were not allowed to come to the airport terminals for pick ups at the time!).

Do you grasp the deeper meaning of altruism? Being thoughtful and selfless sounds good on paper and in spiritual circles, but understanding what selflessness encompasses reaches beyond mere appearances. It’s beyond sharing half your bag of potato chips. It’s about sharing EMOTION. IT’S ABOUT SHARING YOUR TIME. Altruism and kindness-friendliness stem from the same root: OPENNESS OF HEART. True kindness comes from a heart that is open to the needs of others – their mental, spiritual, emotional, physical needs. Did you know that if you shut yourself off from experiencing or sharing in the happiness of another person, remaining detached or aloof, weather they are sharing their joys or hardships with you, YOU WILL INEVITABLY CONTAMINATE YOUR MIND, PSYCHE, AND ENTIRE BEING, WITH THE LOWER VIBRATIONS OF ANXIETY, ISOLATION, DEPRESSION, AND DISPASSION FOR THE WORLD? Why are people anxious? Because they are all wrapped up in Them-Selves 24/7 – their needs, their problems, their agendas. What happens when you volunteer and contribute your time giving to a cause, helping others? You step outside of the “all-about-me” agenda, and the anxiety that you’ve created around your life suddenly melts into an altruistic state of pure being, where thinking and caring about others elevates you to higher state. You move from being into yourself, by being in the moment – and that moment that you spare plays a significant part in someone else’s life!

This openness of heart is the core foundation of all the world’s religions, sublimating in the Vedantic, Buddhist and Christ’s teachings.  One of the techniques of cultivating a higher spiritual state, is allowing the mind to rest in a state of tranquility by purifying it with the thought of happiness and compassion for others. This is the foundation of Vedic and Buddhist meditation. Think about it, when you are upset or annoyed at someone they steal your peace of mind, don’t they? The Dalai Lama says that, “According to Buddhism, compassion is an aspiration, a state of mind, wanting others to be free from suffering. It’s not passive — it’s not empathy alone — but rather an empathetic altruism that actively strives to free others from suffering. Genuine compassion must have both wisdom and lovingkindness. That is to say, one must understand the nature of the suffering from which we wish to free others (this is wisdom), and one must experience deep intimacy and empathy with other sentient beings (this is lovingkindness).” Pantanjali, the great Indian Sage and author of the Yoga Sutras, also writes in what many believe to be one of his most important Sutras as a key preliminary practice for attaining a deeper and more tranquil meditative state, “By cultivating attitudes of friendliness towards the happy, and compassion for the unhappy….the mind retains it’s undisturbed calmness.” (The Yoga Sutras, Part1/35).

friendship-quote-e1327408483515-3455So go out of your way starting today, experience and share your FRIENDLINESS AND COMPASSION with others, and see what happens! Let go of saying, “Sorry, I can’t” for a while. Take off your blinders and look around. There’s always someone you can be kind to! And at the end of each day, remember that feeling of SHARING YOURSELF. Step back, unwind, close your eyes, and just connect to your own precious heart.  Notice how your mind is filled with joy and peace – a sense of inner contentment. Recognize how being a giver brings you much greater joy, peace, and metal calmness than being a taker. Enjoy the inter-connectivness of life. You deserve to feel this greater joy coming back to you!

*Try this affirmation when you wake up, mid-day, and before you go to sleep for one week: “I feel connected to everyone today. I share everyone’s joy, and fill my heart with friendship and kindness for all!” You will see how the world suddenly responds to you with overwhelming kindness!
