I have spent the last two+ years working intensely on my emotional and mental state of mind. I've consulted with a number of powerful energy healers and learned techniques that clear subconscious beliefs and emotions.
I am convinced that Cancer is 90% of the time a manifestation of an emotional block...stuck emotion/trauma...past or present.
The power of the mind is not unknown to any of us. Volumes have been written about ordinary people harnessing the power of belief, of visualization, and changing their world. From Tony Robbins to Napoleon Hill to Dr. Wayne Dyer, all talk about controlling your negative thoughts, clearing old grudges and practicing forgiveness to pave the way for a healthy, happy life.
In the video below, Dr. Wayne Dyer, bless his amazing soul, shares Ten Principles of Manifestation that will transform your world and quite possibly what's going on in your body. I recommend you print this list and keep it somewhere where you can see it daily.
You are the healer. There is no greater power than that of Divine Source Light. Fill your being with it. Focus that light on the areas of concern and ACT AS IF YOU ARE ALREADY HEALED.
The mind works to manifest what we BELIEVE. It cannot distinguish between imagination and reality. That's why hypochondriacs can manifest symptoms when there is no illness.
What the mind believes, the mind achieves.
The 10 Principles:
1) Have a mind that is open to everything and attached to nothing.(Tilapa)
2) You can't give away, what you don't have. (Don't give away empty rhetoric)
3) There are no justified resentments. (snake bite/venom analogy)
4) Don't die with your music still in you. (live it now, there are no guarantees except on pillow labels)
5) Embrace Silence. (music is the silence between notes)
6) Give up your personal history. (everyone has a story, don't live stuck in a moment that is gone
7) You can't solve a problem with the same mind that created it. (embrace new thoughts)
8) Treat yourself as if you were already what you want to become. (act your way into reality)
9) Treasure your divinity. (you are part of something non-physical)
10) Wisdom is avoiding all thoughts that are weakening you. (entertain ideas only that will strengthen you)
If the day and the night are such that you greet them with joy, and life emits a fragrance like flowers and sweet-scented herbs, is more elastic, more starry, more immortal — that is your success. All nature is your congratulation, and you have cause momentarily to bless yourself.Read More
Salvis Officinalis, comes from the Latin salvare, meaning to 'save' or 'cure'.
There is a proverb in an old Italian manuscript that states: 'Why should he die who has sage in his garden?'
We have the English to thank for the idea of smothering sage in onions and adding it to breads and sausage for stuffing! Who knew.
The English also drank sage tea long before black tea became the choice for this afternoon tradition. I found it very tasty.
Several scientific studies show that Sage brightens your mood, rejuvenates your concentration, and sharpens your memory. Perhaps that's why a sage is thus named?
Sage extract has also been valuable in alleviating or preventing:
- Age-related Memory Loss
- Diabetes and
Sage is native to the Mediterranean. This aromatic plant is easy to grow in many temperate climates, and will attract bees with its lavender flowers.
Clary Sage is the sweet and milder variety, Greek is stronger. Dried Sage is usually Dalmatian Sage native to Croatia, and is sold rubbed, crushed or powdered.
Sage goes well in gravies, butters, stuffing, meatloaf, scones, polenta, on pizza, and with fatty fish.. like Salmon.
Sage will keep for up to a year kept in an airtight container, and stored in a dark, dry place.

This quick guest offering is inspired by an appetizer served at a hotel in Limassol, Cyprus. Their version is served as triangles of watermelon sandwiched with triangles of cheese and lettuce.
Tip: Gently punch a hole with the blunt end of the skewers into the middle of each square of cheese before you begin. This prevents them from splitting when you skewer them.
- Cool Watermelon cut into cubes
- Almond Cheese, cut into thin squares
- Fresh organic Basil, cut to fit
Skewer a watermelon slice, a piece of cheese, a piece of basil leaf, another watermelon cube and one more basil leaf. Wrap and refrigerate until ready to serve.
Easy, quick, delicious.
Our Squash and Tomato plants are growing far beyond the generous 4' x 8' raised bed boundaries we thought they'd settle in quietly. The tomatoes are about 3.5 feet tall...
and the squash have spread down the 18" sides and are making their way across the back lawn to who knows where!
I won't even describe the pumpkin vines - and the beanstalks.. well, they would make Jack proud.
We have to get out and water before the heat of the day... before 8:30am these days. It's been in the low 100's for the past handful of days, and boy are we all ready for a break.
This afternoon, after picking my son up from work and driving to a friend's house to relieve her of a silk Ficus tree she no longer could accommodate, we rushed into our cool home yearning for something to quench our insides.
A bunch of organic limes sat on the counter, and I started singing, "She put the lime in the coconut and drank them both up.." and then it struck me!
A Tropical Cooler is Born!
Now, I'm not sure how unique this is.. but I don't believe I've come across a similar medley of ingredients.
I squeezed 3 organic Limes, added some thick Coconut milk (about 1/2 cup), a couple of Tablespoons of Raw Honey, a cup of cold Water, and a jigger of Black'n'Blueberry Juice.
A couple of ice cubes and a straw.. and Wow! Delicious, refreshing, and good for you.
Adjust honey and water to taste... I liked it on the tart side.

A few years ago, a prominent health practitioner advised me to eat Bitter Melon 3 times a week. "Studies are demonstrating that it has powerful blood sugar control and anti-tumor properties", she said, "it is used in Asian medicine to treat diabetes." And so began "The Hunt for Bitter Melon", worthy of a chapter in an adventure novel.
When I finally found some in a large, sprawling, "every gadget, house-ware, street food, produce item and food-like thing ever made in China" store... they were of course not organic. But the benefit so superseded the ingestion of the pesticides, I bought a few of the ridged, bumpy cucumber-like things.
For anyone who is dealing with diabetes, or cancer it's highly recommended to include in your diet.
To prepare bitter melon, slice the fruit open and remove seeds and pith. Do not peel. Beginners to bitter melon may parboil the fruit to lessen bitterness, although aficionados say this changes the texture too much.
Typically bitter melon is stuffed, pickled, or curried and served with meat or in soup.
Here are some suggestions:
- Chop it into Pasta Sauce with lots of garlic and oregano
- Dice it and cook with other vegetables, like sweet potatoes and peas
- Cook it with onions and pineapple chunks, season with cinnamon
- Add it to a Curry dish
- Put some in a Stir Fry with lots of ginger, season with Coconut Aminos
- Cut in half, hollow out seeds and stuff with heavily spiced ground grass-fed beef, onions and tomatoes
And finally... the evidence
Bitter melon is a fruit that grows in Asia, Africa, and the Caribbean. Traditionally it has been used to treat diabetes. This is what spiked the interest of Dr. Rajesh Agarwal, a lead researcher in the Colorado study. He thought bitter melon might treat pancreatic cancer, since Type II diabetes often precedes the disease.
Researchers examined the effect of bitter melon on 4 different lines of pancreatic cancer cells and in mice. Mice were injected with pancreatic tumor cells and were randomly divided into one of two groups. One group received water (control), and the second was given bitter melon juice for six weeks. At the end of the study, the tumors that developed on the mice were dissected, weighed, and analyzed.
The results showed that bitter melon juice inhibited cancer cell proliferation and induced apoptosis (cell death). Tumor growth was inhibited by 60% in the treatment group with no signs of toxicity.

For years women, children and the elderly have been advised to increase their intake of Calcium through supplements and dairy foods.
That statement was not accompanied by a warning that unless you provide your body with the mechanism to transport that calcium into your bones, it will form calcium deposits.
The Problem with Calcium
Calcium buildup in soft tissues can cause medical problems.
Calcium can accumulate in the arterial plaque that develops after an injury to the vessel wall.
Normal deposition of calcium occurs in only two places: bone and teeth.
Abnormal deposits of calcium occurs in multiple tissues including:
the inner lining of the arteries (the intima) where atherosclerotic plaque accrues;
the middle muscle layer of arteries (smooth muscle calcification);
the heart valves, especially the aortic valve causing aortic stenosis
To The Rescue
Vitamin K2 appears to be the most important factor in steering calcium into the bone and away from heart valves and the arterial system.
Vitamin K is absolutely essential for regulating calcium balance in the body. A deficiency of vitamin K status causes brittle bones and a vascular system that hardens to a state of poor functionality.
Based on the plethora of studies published in 2008, vitamins K2 and K3 have also emerged as intriguing agents in both cancer prevention and treatment.
Vitamin K2 has been shown to induce apoptosis (cell destruction) in leukemia cells in vitro.3
In nature, vitamin K is found in two forms: vitamin K1, which occurs in leafy green vegetables; and vitamin K2, which exists in organ meats, egg yolks, dairy products, and particularly in fermented products such as cheese and curd.
While some ingested K1 is converted to K2 in the body, significant benefits occur when vitamin K2 itself is supplemented.4

StarKist, once a unit of San Francisco-based Del Monte Foods, is now owned by South Korea’s Dongwon Industries. It was purchased by Dongwon two years ago for $363 million. At the cannery inspection Nov. 2010, the FDA found “serious violations” involving StarKist’s seafood Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point plan and its production of low-acid canned foods. FDA said both the canned tuna and pouched packed tuna being produced by StarKist on American Samoa are “adulterated.”
Asked by Food Safety News about the warning letter, StarKist spokeswoman Mary Sestric said: “All StarKist products are safe and no product withdrawals are being initiated.”
Fisheries in China range from large commercial operations that are much more tightly run down to tens of thousands of small farmers with small ponds. Ditto for Vietnam on a smaller scale.
Some of those farmers have used more ‘economical’ methods of feeding their ponds – including feeding the fish waste from other livestock.
Given that situation, along with some highly publicized contamination incidents, the US FDA has just effectively brought the import of 5 specific types of farmed fish to a screeching halt (basa, catfish, shrimp, eel and dace).
But what about the rest?
Tilapia is a very popular fish in the US, and much of it is farm raised in China. Albertson's recently had a 4-day special of 4 bags of frozen Tilapia for the price of one. Sure enough, the label stated: 'farm raised', and on the bottom in small print it said, 'China '.
vegetables are sourced from many countries including China. A shopper posted her examination of frozen vegetables she purchased and wrote:
"The first package was
Birdseye Mixed Vegetables: Carrots, broccoli, baby potatoes, baby cob corn and red diced bell peppers. It said 'Product of U.S.A., Mexico and Vietnam'.
The other was a Safeway Market brand: Sugar Snap Peas, whole Baby Carrots & whole Baby Cob corn. 'Product of U.S.A.: Carrots; Product of China: Corn, S.S. Peas. Packaged in Canada'."
China is far and away the world's largest garlic producer. In fact, in any given year China produces between 75% and 80% of the world's total garlic production. So far as the fields being fertilized with sewage. I choose to buy local, organic garlic.
NOTE: I believe we grow all these vegetables in the U.S. I grow many of them in my backyard. So ask yourself why these companies choose to source their produce from China.. thousands of miles away?
I like Trader Joe's for a few things.. but they are one of the worst for frozen veggies which are imported from three different continents.
A liquid version Cold FX was found to be contaminated a couple of years ago. So please read labels, if it's not clear where your food is sourced from.. put the item back on the shelf and choose a local, organic brand that is less likely to be sourced from a foreign country.
Genetically engineered food has yet to be proven safe.
In 1998, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) admitted in court that it had reached "no dispositive scientific findings" about the risks of genetically engineered foods.
There is no scientific consensus about the risks of eating genetically engineered food, according to a statement last year signed by nearly 300 scientists.
The scientists agree that "Concerns about risks are well-founded" and that a "substantial number" of "animal feeding studies and reviews of such studies...found toxic effects and signs of toxicity" in animals fed genetically engineered food, compared with controls.
"Some of the studies give serious cause for concern," the scientists write.
>> Genetically engineered crops have led to increased use of pesticides.
>> Mutating weed resistance is requiring the Monsantos to sell even more powerful herbicides.
>> The Big 6 chemical and seed companies are working diligently to monopolize the food system at the expense of consumers, farmers and smaller seed companies.
>> Industry is spending lavishly against the food movement.

It is well worth 5 minutes to read it, and to forward, blog or tweet about it.

Fava beans, also known as Broad-beans and very popular in Middle Eastern cooking, are dense with nutrition.
Fava beans have no saturated fat or cholesterol and offer a healthy dose of thiamin, vitamin K, vitamin B-6, potassium, copper, selenium, zinc and magnesium.
They are also a source of lean protein.
Fava beans can be served raw or cooked. The bean pods are usually discarded, but if young and tender you may blanch them before adding to a dish.
The beans themselves can be served in their skin if young and tender, or shelled before eating.
A serving of cooked or fresh Fava beans can significantly increase your intake of folate, iron, manganese and dietary fiber.
This traditional Lebanese recipe is a meal-in-a-pot. It is cooked with home-preserved beef during winter months. You may omit the beef for a vegetarian version.
But besides being an excellent cool weather meal, it can be served at room temperature on warm days. Add a vegetable or salad and dinner is ready.
Fava Bean Stew with Rice
- 2 Tbs. Coconut oil mixed with 1 Tbs. e.v. Olive Oil
- 1/2 c. organic Onion, chopped
- 1/4 c. cubed grass-fed beef rubbed with Sea Salt, 1/8 tsp. Black Pepper and 1/2 tsp. Allspice
- 2 cups of shelled, fresh Fava Beans, you may leave inner skins on if tender
- 1/2 c. each organic Brown Basmati and Wild Rice
- 1/4 c. organic Brown or French Lentils
- 2 c. Hot Water or warmed up Broth or brewed Green Tea
- 1 tsp. Sea Salt
- 1 tsp. Cinnamon
- Pinch of Saffron (opt.)
Place oils in a 1-1/2 qt. pot over medium-low heat. Wait 3 minutes, then add onions. Turn heat to medium, and cook onions, stirring, until translucent.
Add beef and saute, stirring until no longer pink on the outside.
Add Fava Beans and rest of ingredients. Turn heat to medium-high and bring to a boil.
Cover, and cook on low heat until rice and beans are tender, and liquid is absorbed, about 30-35 minutes. If needed, add a little more liquid, cover and cook until done.
Enjoy alongside a fresh green salad served with a lemon-vinegar-garlic dressing.

Every year the Environmental Working Group (EWG) releases their annual guide to sunscreens,1 and this year's data again shows that you must be very cautious when choosing sunscreen to apply to your skin.
LOOK OUT FOR THESE
1. Oxybenzone This is one of the most troublesome ingredients found in the majority of sunscreens.Oxybenzone is believed to cause hormone disruptions and cell damage that may provoke cancer.
2. Retinyl Palmitate (Vitamin A palmitate) Sunscreen products may actually increase the speed at which malignant cells develop and spread skin cancer because they contain vitamin A and its derivatives, retinol, and retinyl palmitate.
3. Fragrance Beware of products that contain synthetic fragrance, as this term describes any number of harmful chemicals that do not have to be listed individually on the label.
WHAT TO CHOOSE
- Avoid Spray Sunscreens
- Protects Against Both UVA and UVB Rays: SPF only protects against UVB rays, which are the rays within the ultraviolet spectrum that allow your body to produce vitamin D in your skin. But the most dangerous rays are the UVA rays. Make sure your sunscreen protects against both.
- Avoid Sunscreen Towelettes or Powders: Dubious protection
- Avoid Spray Sunscreens: Contain toxic particles that can be inhaled
Does Your Sunscreen Offer UVA Protection?
Even a sunscreen that claims to be "broad spectrum" may not provide adequate UVA protection. As EWG reported:5
"After a 34-year process of reviewing sunscreen safety and efficacy, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has implemented enforceable rules on sunscreen marketing and UVA protection. The FDA allows American sunscreen makers to claim their products are 'broad spectrum,' even though many offer much poorer UVA protection than sunscreens sold in other countries.
Based on the products in our 2014 database, EWG estimates that about half of all beach and sport sunscreens could not be sold in Europe because they provide inadequate UVA protection."
So, look for a sunscreen that contains the minerals zinc oxide and titanium dioxide.
Use Sunscreen When Absolutely Necessary
If you work in the outdoors, are planning a trip outdoors, or if you need to protect sensitive areas of your face (like around your eyes), safe sunscreen is certainly recommended. But if you apply sunscreen every time you're out in the sun, you'll block your body's ability to produce vitamin D.
Optimizing your vitamin D levels may reduce your risk of as many as 16 different types of cancer, including pancreatic, lung, ovarian, breast, prostate, and skin cancers.
Studies show melanoma mortality actually decreases after UV exposure. Moderate exposure to sunlight, particularly UVB, is protective against melanoma (the deadliest form of skin cancer) due to the vitamin D your body produces.
>> That being said, you NEVER want to BURN!
5 Top Sunshine Tips
Spend some time outdoors in the sun regularly, but do so with some commonsense precautions:
- Expose your skin to sunlight for short periods daily
- If you're in the sun for longer periods, cover up with clothing, a hat or shade
- Shield your face from the sun daily using a safe sunscreen or a hat.
- Consider the use of an "internal sunscreen" like astaxanthin to offer additional protection.
- Consume a healthy diet full of natural antioxidants. Fresh, raw, unprocessed foods deliver the nutrients that your body needs to maintain a healthy balance of omega-6 and omega-3 oils in your skin, which is your first line of defense against sunburn.

If you have amalgam fillings or a root canal - don't wait to have them removed.
98% of Breast Cancer occurrences have a dental association
When I lived overseas as a teenager, I had to have a root canal. I was so terrified of shots in my gums, that I refused the anesthetic. The Dentist did the best he could with topical Novocaine and pain meds. Not surprisingly that root canal had to be revisited 20 years later. And after I developed breast cancer, 15 years after that, and heard about this connection, I realized my root canal was on the same side of my body as the breast that had cancer.
Also, amalgam fillings : the silver fillings made from a mixture of mercury, silver, tin and copper, build up toxicity over time. Mercury is a known carcinogen, and copper is the metal that allows cancer cells to establish new blood supplies!
Below is an excerpt from an article published by the Independent Cancer Research Foundation. To read the full version, click here, or go to //www.new-cancer-treatments.org/Articles/RootCanals.html
The Relationship Between Root Canals and Cancer
When a person in the United States has a toothache, due to an infection in the tooth, rather than cure the infection with 3% food grade hydrogen peroxide, dentists almost always kill the tooth. They will typically drill out the insides of the tooth and fill the tooth with metal rods.
This is called a "root canal." Root canals are a safe haven for microbes. Because no blood reaches the inside of the tooth, the immune system cannot kill any microbes inside the dead tooth.
Microbes do not originate in the root canals, rather they originate elsewhere in the body (such as were cancer cells form). The microbes thrive and some of them hide from the immune system inside the root canals.
These microbes, and other toxins from inside the tooth, periodically come out of the tooth and cause reinfections. It is impossible to cure more than 200 diseases unless all of the root canal teeth are removed properly because even if you killed the microbes of the disease, microbes hiding in the root canals can come out and reinfect the person.
The American Dental Association has known about this for decades.
Root canals are a major cause of the immune system being suppressed and they are a major cause of cancer:
- "Dr. Thomas Rau, who runs the Paracelsus Clinic (cancer clinic since 1958) in Switzerland recently checked the records of the last 150 breast cancer patients treated in his clinic. He found that 147 of them (98%) had one or more root canal teeth on the same meridian as the original breast cancer tumor. His clinic has a biological dentist section where all cancer patients, on reporting in, have their mouth cleaned up first -- especially all root canal teeth removed.
- There are about 24 million root canals done in the U.S. alone every year. They were proven deadly disease agents in 1925 in a study by Dr. Weston Price and 60 prominent researchers. That study has been suppressed ever since by the ADA and the American Association of Endodontists (AAE).
- Read the book "Root Canal Cover-Up" by George Meinig, DDS, FACD for the full story. Dr. Meinig was an endodontist for 50 years. He helped found the AAE in 1943. His book is a mea culpa (apology) to the thousands of patients whose health he ruined doing root canal fillings.
What is interesting about this quote is that 100% of the breast cancer patients had root canals, or other infections, on the same acupuncture meridian.
Since the microbes do not originate in the root canal, what this implies is that breast cancer cannot form without the assistance of the metals and microbes coming from the root canals.
What You Can Do
The ideal solution is the have the root canals AND all dental amalgam removed from the body, followed instantly by heavy chelation therapy (e.g. chlorella, zeolites, etc.).
But don't go to your local dentist to have this done or things might get worse. In other words, if the root canal is not done by the right kind of dentist, the net result may be that nothing is accomplished or things have been made worse.
There is a specialized type of dentist called a "biological dentist" or a "holistic dentist."
These dentists are sometimes persecuted by the corrupt American Dental Association, so do not expect to find one in the local telephone book. They can be hard to find locally. Internet search engines may be the best way to find a local holistic or biological dentist.
In the San Francisco Bay Area, we have such a dentist in Alamo. Conduct your own search. Even if you find one 30 miles away, it's well worth the trip for your future well-being. And be firm about asking for non-amalgam fillings in your children's teeth.
Adya Clarity detox liquid contains Aluminum, Sulfuric acid
TUCSON, Ariz. (March 25, 2013) - The non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (www.ConsumerWellness.org) has issued a consumer health warning over Adya Clarity, a "detox" product that was seized by the FDA in 2012 and tested at over 1200ppm aluminum.
The product is currently being marketed through a series of highly deceptive webinars that claim almost magical powers for the product. In reality, the product is primarily made of metals dissolved in sulfuric acid, and it was imported into the United States using the description "battery acid" on import documents.
Adya Clarity's two most prominent metals are aluminum and iron. The manufacturer of Adya Clarity intentionally and deliberately refused to list aluminum on the label, instead listing beneficial trace elements such as magnesium.
Here's the chemical breakdown of Adya Clarity, as tested by the FDA after they seized the product:
• Aluminum average 1040 ppm • Iron average 1070 ppm • Sulfuric acid average .927 % • Lead .012 ppm • Arsenic .027 ppm
The marketing of Adya Clarity is based on a parlor trick of pouring an acidic liquid containing dissolved metals into a glass of water, which is more alkaline.
The sudden shift in alkalinity causes particles (metals) to appear in the water. This is described by the deceptive marketers as a "cleaning" of the water.
Promoters of Adya Clarity, which include Matt Bakos and Kacper Postawski, claim that when the product is consumed internally, it pulls metals out of your body. In reality, the product introduces potentially toxic levels of non-organic iron and aluminum into your body.
Adya Clarity response: Label to be modified for full transparency, no internal use marketing without clinical proof (updated)

Sweet potatoes are full of wonderful vitamins, are alkaline and help reduce blood sugar.
You can enjoy them several times a week cooked in various ways. They're versatile enough to be in a stew, curry, veggie patty, side dish or served on their own or in a dessert. I modified this recipe I found online.
Baked Southwestern Sweet Potato Cakes
- 2 organic Sweet Potatoes, halved
- 2 c. cooked organic Black Beans, drained
- 2 cloves organic Garlic, minced
- 3 organic Spring Onions, thinly sliced
- 3 Tbs. organic Red Onion, diced
- 2 Tbs. organic Parsley, chopped
- 2 Tbs. organic Cilantro, chopped
- 1 tsp. Cayenne Pepper
- ½ tsp. Cumin
- ½ tsp. Chili powder
- ½ tsp. Sea Salt
- 1 tsp. fresh organic Thyme, minced or ¼ tsp. dry
- 2 tsp. fresh Lime Juice
- Zest of 1/2 lime
- Avocado or Olive oil for baking sheet.
Preheat oven to 425ºF.
Steam sweet potatoes in their skin, covered, until soft. Do not boil, as they lose flavor and will be too mushy.
Remove potatoes from pot, peel and mash in a medium bowl.
Place 1/2 the beans in food processor and blend.
Add all the beans to the potatoes. Add the garlic, onions, parsley, cilantro, and spices. Stir together to combine.
Stir in the lime juice, zest.
Form mixture into 8 patties, just under 1/2" thick.
Place patties on oiled baking sheet. Brush tops lightly with olive oil.
Bake for 12 minutes, flip carefully and bake for another 10 minutes, or until lightly browned.
Serve topped with a fresh salsa (tomatoes, onions, cilantro, cucumber, lime or lemon juice and 2 Tbs. plain almond or coconut yogurt), or enjoy in a high-fiber gluten-free bun with condiments.
