“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.

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!

SVADHYAYA: Freedom From Suffering – From Mental Darkness Into Light Consciousness

THE UNIVERSE RE-ARRANGES ITSELF TO ACCOMMODATE YOUR PICTURE OF REALITY. THE QUESTION IS, WHICH REALITY DO YOU LIVE IN, OR THINK TO BE TRUE? HOW WELL DO YOU THINK YOU KNOW YOUR TRUE SELF?

IYENGAR-MEMORIAMRight after Buddha attained enlightenment, he was recognized by a someone who thought knew him before he underwent his spiritual transformation. Not sure if he was indeed the same person he once knew, the man looked at him quite perplexed and asked, ‘Who are you?’ to which Buddha answered, ‘I am AWAKE.’ The late B.K.S. Iyengar, who inspired my yoga practice and that of million others around the globe said, ‘There is only one reality, but there are many ways that reality can be interpreted.’ Most of us live in a state of ignorant bliss. We are not only unaware of who we really are, but we are also unaware that we live in a world perpetuated by our own delusions. Buddhists call this delusional state maya, and the yogis refer to our ignorant state of existence as avidya. The moment we are adept enough to reason, we begin to manufacture a complex mental framework comprised of infinite perceptions and interpretations, based on our myopic, egocentric, and biased viewpoints and relationships. Unfortunately, we are born and cast into a pre-existing society and/or dogma which is held together by a rigid status quo infrastructure. Unbeknownst to us, we are automatically endoctrinated into a ‘mental culture’ that is already biased, afflicted, and divided by a an already corrupted worldview. These machinations of the mind, shaped by our culture, past, and society, blind us from recognizing the ultimate TRUTH, and seeing the true REALITY behind our biased opinions. It blinds us from seeing that who we think we are, is actually not who we really are at all. Therefore, it is safe to say that our thoughts are not entirely our own. In a sense, we are bi-products of the past and the present. But we can be the masters of a new present tense, and certainly of a future that is entirely of our own making. I recently took a one week Yoga Therapy & Mood Management training with Richard Brown, renowned psychologist, Qi Gong and yoga practitioner and author of ‘The Healing Power of Breath,’ and listened to him compare the mind or our psyche to a clean, pure white tablecloth that gets stained with false perceptions and psychological scars over the course of a lifetime. The tablecloth inevitably changes color completely, until there is not longer a speck of white remaining – just stains. Another Buddhist and yoga metaphor I like to share with clients during a yoga or meditation session, is comparing the mind to the crystal clear surface of a lake; if you stir up the sand at the bottom, the water will get murky and cloudy; likewise, the mind must be kept still and undisturbed of chaotic thoughts and false perceptions (through meditation) in order to attain and maintain true clarity. The whole premise of Buddhism and Yoga Psychology is to present us with powerful long-tested tools, or that perfect mix of ‘magic ingredients’ that will wash or dissolve all those ‘tablecloth stains,’ or keep ‘the sand’ from obscuring the clarity of our minds – bringing us back to our ORIGINAL state, before the stains set in. But without being able to acknowledge or recognize that we are in part responsible for those stains and clouded thinking, we cannot begin to do the real work. It is only through cleansing our minds and getting to know who we really are, behind our many masks or the multiple stains or layers of non-reality, that we can awaken to find our way from the darkness of ignorance into the light of self-awareness.

Lao Tzu photo-69In yoga, we use pranayama and kriyas (breathwork techniques) that act like the detergent on the stained tablecloth, cleaning and purifying everything away before we engage in meditation, which in and of itself is like the pressing iron that smoothes all the wrinkles away, leading us to the ultimate state of samadhi (union with the divine). This is where and when the real work begins – sitting in meditation or self-reflection – where the seeds toward transformation are sown. This is where and when ‘unreality’ begins to let itself be seen, as we begin to slowly peak behind the veils of maya and avidya; when the answers to our long-awaited questions or dilemmas suddenly begin to surface out of the depth of our consciousness. Deepak Chopra said that when we pray to God we ask him for answers, whereas in meditation he reaches out to us and gives us the answers. Buddha’s first sermon after his enlightenment or ‘awakening’ was on the Four Noble Truths, which if pursued and clearly understood can lead us all out of our ‘mental darkness’ and relinquish us from pain and suffering. The First Noble Truth is that we all suffer. The Second Noble Truth is the truth behind the suffering, or the cause. The Third Noble Truth is the truth of the end of suffering. The Forth Noble Truth is the path leading us out of suffering. The elemental truth which we are to arrive to via The Four Noble Truths, is the core revelation that we suffer because we live in a perpetual state of ignorance and denial, rather than being fully awake to what truly is. Through our erroneous judgements and perceptions we create our misery, self-induced pain, weaving a persona subjugated by the whims of a self-defeating, self-satisfying ego. The Fourth Noble Truth or path, is actually the ultimate and final doorway that leads us out of the darkness into the light. Thankfully, Buddha didn’t stop there. He gave us a precisely delineated path to follow, and called it The Eightfold Path, which Sage Pantajali, a contemporary yogi and follower of Buddha’s teachings adapted into The Eight Limbs of Yoga in the 6th Century AD, as part of his systematic approach to the practice of Raja Yoga, adding yoga asana (the physical practice of yoga, via the postures). What most people call yoga in the West is just a small fraction of the entire discipline and philosophy of Yoga, particularly Pantanjali’s Raja Yoga branch from which the most widely practiced form of yoga, Hatha Yoga, emerged. It’s like running a quarter mile rather than completing an entire marathon, and hoping to be awarded a medal. There are Eight Limbs of Yoga, not one. There are Eightfold Steps, not one. There are no short-cuts to be taken if we are to truly attain enlightenment and permanently free ourselves from suffering.

How do we get there? We undertake this journey by studying OUR SELVES! That’s what yoga is. The yogis, following Buddha’s advanced teaching, prescribed one of the most advanced psychological techniques, which would ultimately lay the foundation for modern-day psychotherapy. It is called ‘svadhyaya,’ translated from Sanskrit as ‘self-study’ or self-analysis. It literally means studying our selves and our behavior, training to cultivate self-awareness and accountability for our physical, mental, and emotional states and actions. As mentioned, The Buddhist approach is outlined in The Eightfold Path, which directly influenced the yogic approach as authored by Sage Pantanjali. The yogic approach to attaining enlightenment through self-study and meditation differs slightly, only because yogis believed that in order to get through to the mind and tame its neurotic nature, before completing the entire Eight Limbs of Yoga, one must first conquer the limitations of the physical body through the practice of asana – Asana being the Third Limb of Yoga, which is preceded by the Yamas and Niyamas, the moral and physical rules of conduct towards self and others, which were directly influenced by contemporary Buddhist ethical mores. Yogis used the body as an instrument (via advanced breathing techniques, mudras, and asanas) to eventually conquer the mind, and as an initial point of self-mastery and self-awareness; if we can discipline the body first, we will then have a cleaner vehicle to work with and conquer the limitations of the mind, fine tuning our spiritual practice. Svadhyaya or self-analysis can then shine like a flashlight, lighting up our subconscious and illuminating those dormant parts of our consciousness that will ultimately shift into higher awareness, allowing us to finally see things as they really are.

In the end, we are not the wounded, flawed, and imperfect individuals we act out to be, or falsely identify ourselves with. We are essentially walking through life dormant, until that moment when we realize that things are not right somehow, or something beckons us to look deeper within to find the answers to some hard questions. In order to understand the complex reasons behind our self-induced suffering, we ultimately must engage in the most advanced kind of psychotherapy – with Our Selves. Thankfully we have Buddhist Psychology and Yoga Psychology, long referred to as the original ‘Sciences of the Mind.’ It was inevitable that the fathers of modern psychotherapy, Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung, would use many of these previously pioneered psycho-analytical precepts as techniques to unlock and heal complex psychological issues. Jung’s breakthrough terminology of ‘the Shadow’ which refers to the hidden and repressed dimensions of the Self, encapsulates that which the yogis and the rishis have referred to for centuries as the ‘non-Self,’ afflicted by avidya, or ignorance of the true nature of things. It is this fragmented self, the Shadow or the Ego, that wants to emerge from behind its multiple false masks, from darkness into the light. It is not us, but our Ego which entraps us and perpetuates all suffering, forever craving and pursuing those things which only satisfy material and primal needs. I am convinced that if we choose to bravely pursue any of the paths carved out by our wise immortal teachers, we can can get to the other end of the tunnel. We can become once more that immaculate white tablecloth, that tabula rasa onto which we can write our own story.

13319946_630243450485170_1222448104449714639_nYOGA THERAPY ASSIGNMENT: Get a journal and write down the Four Noble Truths, and then try to turn each one into a question. Of course, first and foremost you must acknowledge the First Noble Truth – that you do indeed suffer or are emotionally wounded on some level. That will be your #1 Statement. Then question-answer the remaining Four Noble Truths: #2) What is the real truth behind my suffering; #3) How can I get to the end of my suffering; #4) What is the path I have to follow to get there? Then go back and elaborate on what might have been the root cause of your suffering, and set an intention on what you are willing to do to reclaim your true identity and life beyond suffering. Don’t harbor on the past or the suffering. Stay detached from identifying with any negative emotions. It is just ‘a story’ after all. Write down Four Noble Things About Yourself – things you know deep down about yourself to be good and lovable. You can ask others if you have difficulty with this. Lastly outline, the steps you will take – you can begin with 3 – each day or each week, to work towards shifting into a higher self-awareness and consciousness, manifesting a life filled with, peace, joy, and love of Self. Then wait and notice how the Universe will re-arrange itself to accommodate your new version of REALITY.
MAY TRUTH, LOVE, AND CLARITY SHINE UPON YOU. NAMASTE.
