It's the Simple Things

It has been a long time since I posted on my blog.  I was busy getting tangled in life.
Getting too far from the simple things that matter.
In this time that has passed, I also had my sixth month cat scans. Lots of people were waiting to hear the results.
I never posted them. 
I had to have time to process. I don't want anyone to get discouraged in what I am about to tell you.
My cat scans this time showed very small growth in the tumors. I did not lose my faith.... I know and believe God has  healed me, but I did feel like someone punched me in the stomach. ONLY because I am tired.
I have became weary and tired of all that I do in my protocol to heal. I have allowed it all to become way too complicated and tangled and messy and overwhelming.
Dragging me down.
Wearing me out.
Causing me to lose sight of and not rest in the Light and the Truth. This is not ever what God wants for us. Like Peter, I had gotten my eyes off of the One who kept me above water.
So the days following my scans I was in the midst of preparing for Christmas and after that news, I walked around in a fog. Moving like a robot. Mechanically doing everything that needed done.
A few days later, when I finally stopped to breathe, I thought,  ok, what did I do differently earlier this year, than I did the last half of the year?
Then I remembered.
In the fall of last year, I met a man who had healed naturally from brain cancer. He sent me over his protocol. Much of it, was pretty simple, juicing, vegetarian eating, vitamin c, garlic etc.. But he was also drinking Jason Winters Tea. I went to www.jasonwinters.com and read about this wonderful tea healing so many from cancer and other ailments. I ordered some and started drinking it last November (2012). I drank it religiously 4 times a day. Then in February 2013, I began juicing and taking a lot more supplements that were on the Gerson Therapy. The first week of March I had a 20% decrease in the cancer tumors. I kept drinking the tea but was not as devoted to it, as I had begun taking every supplement that came down the pike that someone else had a good result with.
In June, I had a little decrease.
In June, I stopped taking the Jason Winters Tea, thinking oh, this is just tea, I have all of these supplements to take.
Six months later, December 9, I have cat scans and there is now a growth.
The tea.??
Could the answer be so simple?
I pushed it aside as I was drown in the chaos of 20 something boxes of Christmas decorations, shopping, wrapping, mailing, baking.
Too much.
I was tired. My mind went back to that question of could the answer be so simple?
Then Max preached about an ordinary night bursting forth with extraordinary light, ordinary shepherds receiving a visit from holy angels,  an ordinary manger becoming the bed for royalty, an ordinary girl bringing forth the King of the world.
So simple. God using the simple things of this world to bring forth His glory.
My Christmas' had gotten away from being a simple time of worship. A Holy Advent awaiting the birth of the Christ Child. Away from letting Christ fill me up.
Away from being simple and holy.
As 2013 moved along at lightening speed, I had gotten away from the constant worship in my heart, the gratitude, the calling of miracles in my life, gotten away from relying on God for my healing, from listening to His guidance. This was the other thing, besides the tea, that was different in the first part of the year from the last part of the year.
We complicate things so much in our "religion". Actually driving people away with the legalism in religion.
God made it all so simple....just Faith.
He didn't come in fan fair and he doesn't expect fan fair.
God chooses the path of least likelihood.
So I am spending these quiet days between Christmas and the beginning of a new year, drawing closer to the simple faith of God and drinking my juice and my tea made of the natural vegetables and herbs of this earth He created. Trusting Him for the healing.   Because from no where else does the healing come. Only He is able to heal my body and my life.
It's the simple things.
Simple stable manger.
Old wooden Cross
simple life.
Just faith.

Please watch the video below and try to simplify your life. Enjoy each day, each moment of it.

The Greatest Expectation

I first wrote about his story in my blog dated last May 15, 2012, titled; How do you want this to turn out?
He wasn't feeling well that day. He was very sick from chemotherapy.
An older couple, Him Italian, Her Hispanic.
He only understood some of what I told him about natural healing. His wife would translate, until I spoke about God healing us, then he understood and agreed.
I tried to guide them in the necessary supplements, how to juice etc...
I haven't see them in months, even though I have kept in touch via email.
Until yesterday.
I got a call, they were here visiting from Guatemala and wanted to see me. I immediately ran out the door  to go see them.
He looks wonderful!
Photo
I was so happy and thankful that he is healing and feeling good in the process.  I don't know these people outside the walls of the health food store, but I just love them. I am happy God put them in my path to love.
So....
What does God expect of  us?
Interesting question isn't it.
Sometimes I wonder if we really want to know the answer to that. More often than not, I would venture that most people would not want to ask that question for fear they would not like the answer or He would require something of us, we don't want to give or do.

If we go back to what Jesus said were the greatest commandments, we will find the answer to the above question. He says to "love the Lord your God and love your neighbor as yourself".
Ok. We think we at least do pretty good at the first part of that.
We love God.
But over all I think we don't do so well at the second part.

We now live in a "Selfie" world of personal entitlement.
 More often than not we don't even consider someone else's feelings, or needs. Or the biggest hurt is that we show love for awhile and then put that person on the back burner, sometimes never to show love again.
God was so serious about this command, that He tells us over and over in the Bible to love one another. But not just in a flippant way, in several places He tells us to
"love each other deeply" and even "with all your heart". 
DEEPLY.
WOW!
Richard Stearns, president of World Vision, calls this lack of love, "the Hole in the Gospel", also the title of his wonderful book. He talks about how this, loving each other deeply, is what is missing from our world. It is the part of the Gospel that we have ignored, or cut out...causing a gaping hole in the  whole message of God's word and the message in it for us.
You have to be pretty involved and proactive in someone's life to love them deeply.
 I realize some people we only meet briefly, but in that moment we need to be offering them as much love as we can. You never know what is going on in someone's life or what valley  they are in today....
how much they need that deep love at that moment.
These meetings are no accidents.
no coincidences.
There is a divine reason....always.

Loving like this is something I have been learning more and more the last couple of years.
God is teaching me to be less selfish, more giving, more loving.
I can tell you, I always thought if some thing like this cancer diagnosis ever happened to me or someone in my family, we would be showered with help and love of all kinds because having lived all over the world, God has blessed us with many sweet and tremendous friends who have became like family to us...
or so I thought.
When this all happened to us...to me,
There were friends who I never heard from again. Hardly any helped at all.
Times when I almost died and my family was distraught, there wasn't even anyone to offer a meal.
Thankfully God put an elderly couple in our lives who lived next door  that did what they could to love on and help us.
But that lack of love, was a big, hard pill for us to swallow. Humanly you are very disappointed...down deep.
But spiritually, you know you have God and you don't really need anyone else.
I did learn through this, that we ARE the miracle, help, love and service that others are praying for, that God is sending. WE ARE HIS HANDS AND FEET.
WE ARE THE ONES TO DO THE LOVING.
And in being obedient to that call fills our very souls with so much joy and blessing,,,
it is a sweet thing.
So now, I  will always try to do what I can,  to love as deeply as I can. And even though we struggle trying to pay for all of my care, He always somehow provides.  I have vowed if ever God blesses me with an over abundance, I am going to give, give, love, love and make sure no one  that I know has a need, to the best of my ability.
Open your eyes and heart, today.
You have heard of entertaining angels unaware, you just never know who that is in your path.
LOVE DEEPLY.
And receive a heart and soul overflowing.

I am receiving many emails about precious folks who are trying to get a protocol together to heal naturally from cancer. I want to encourage you all to go to www.cancertutor.com. This is a great website to get loads of information and help for your to choose from many protocols that DO HEAL your body naturally.
I love getting your emails. Thank you for them. :)
I just want everyone to have as much information as possible so you can make the best decision for you.
Many blessings.

What color is your October?

How pink is your October?
I don't know, what part of the world you are living in, but where I grew up, October was filled with brilliant yellows, oranges, reds and browns. Fall colors, Fall leaves. Cooler weather and cotton sweaters.
Gorgeous.Photo: Taken from Olsen Tower in Tucker County.  Taken By Mike Hardy
My favorite time of the  year.
In October anything might be possible. The hillsides turning from a solid green carpet to God's bouquet of colorful flowers. How amazing is that? What a miracle.

But this year, instead of being met with that familiar Fall theme, everything in the whole front of the store is PINK!
Pink clothes, pink ribbons, pink pans and even pink appliances. Everywhere, people are wearing pink clothing.
T-shirts, hats and bumper stickers, that say, "Race for the Cure". Is this pink suppose to bring hope? Being diagnosed with any kind of cancer is not a time to celebrate anything. This pink campaign is not helping anyone except the people who are sticking the money in their pockets. 

In case someone out there doesn't know, this is the "find a cure for breast cancer" campaign. More specifically the Susan  G. Komen campaign.
Now,  I could write a whole lot of enlightening information about the Komen organization, but that is not my motive at this time. However, you can obtain lots of eye opening knowledge online. Go to youtube and type in "Pink Ribbons, Inc."

I don't mean anything in this blog to be disrespectful or insensitive. I am a cancer  thriver myself. But I do not support nor will I ever endorse the Pink Komen campaign, or  the American Cancer Society. They are raising billions of dollars for research to "try to find the cure". When actually what donators are  doing is making some people very rich.
Ask yourself, why after 30 years of cancer research and billions of dollars raised, why haven't they found the cure? The cancer survival rate has not improved much at all, for most cancers, over the last 40 years. I am not condemning anyone who has donated or helped out with raising money for these organizations. You were giving from your sincere heart. Caring. And bless you for that.

They tell everyone the cure is just around the corner.
My answer is they are going down the wrong road!
Why not try this colorful October campaign? The God of the Universe is showing himself off in a big way. He wants to delight us and most of all He wants our attention.

Couldn't it be possible in this October of miracles all around us in nature that just maybe this nature has a miracle for you?
 Trust the One who can turn a whole world a rainbow of colors instead of the ones who want to turn your world pink. 
He has so much life and healing to offer.
He doesn't have to LOOK or RACE for the cure and you don't have to wait any longer...
HE HAS THE CURE.
Our environment and the way we eat and the stresses we live with, the unnatural things in our food, I believe these are all contributors to any kind of cancer. The answer then is to change these things.
Give your body a cleaner environment to live in. Give your body nourishing, organic, natural foods and herbs so it can heal the way God made it to heal.
There is a growing army of people like me who are trying so hard to help others take off their pink colored glasses and see the beautiful natural world that God made for us, not just to enjoy but to use to heal our bodies.
I recently met a Doctor who healed naturally from breast cancer. She is an amazing woman and has an even more amazing healing story. She is "empowering women around the globe to prevent and heal breast cancer naturally". Please go to her web page www.breastcancerconqueror.com and under the "about" tab at the top, click on "videos". She has an eye opening video on there about how she cured her own breast cancer and actually had the tumor extract right out of her body.
Let me give you some great resources on the internet where you can get a load of helpful information for your healing and also tremendously, inspiring stories about others who have and are healing naturally from cancer and other diseases.
www.chrisbeatcancer.com
www.breastcancerconqueror.com
www.cancertruth.net
www.healingstrong.com
www.cancertutor.com
www.gerson.com
www.thechinastudy.com

These are just a few, then go on youtube and  type in "healing cancer" and there are so many testimonials, you won't get them all watched in one day.
We are not all just a coincidence, healing from a devastating disease by accident. There is a whole lot the doctors are not telling you.
This is real.
This is urgent.
Open your eyes to see the healing God is offering you and the beauty all around  you.

Out of the Darkness

Have you ever been in a room so dark you can't see your hand in front of your face?
Been in a dark place outside where you are trying to make out what you see ahead of you? It looks to be one thing but the darkness has it so distorted and when you come upon it, it is totally different than what you thought you saw?
Darkness distorts our vision in a big way.
But darkness is only the absence of light.
Trying to get a child use to the dark,  you turn the light on, have them look around then turn the light off and back on to show them everything is still the same. But when they look around in the dark there are shadows that make scary images, seeming like there are things present that are not real.
Fear enters because of distorted vision...
and not trusting that their parents are in the room and not trusting their own experience that these bad images are not in their rooms in the light.
We live in a fallen world.
In the Garden of Eden, God walked with Adam. They had a relationship...loving, trusting, and
never an indication of anything else...
Until...
The Fall.
Suddenly Adam and Eve are hiding from God. They are frightened, fearful...
hiding from God!
Hiding from their loving Creator.
Why?
Why are they hiding from Him?
Has He ever done anything to cause them to be fearful of Him?
What has changed?
They have now disobeyed and brought sin into the world.
But did that change God?
NO! God is unchangeable. He is the same yesterday, today and forever.
So then why are Adam and Eve afraid, if God is still the same? What caused them to be afraid?
The way THEY SAW God is what changed.
They were now seeing God through their own guilt, sin and fear...
Seeing Him through distorted darkness.
Not seeing Him clearly.
So viewing Him and all He is, through the fallen darkness, guilt, shame and sin, passed down through the ages...causing all of us to have a very distorted view of God.
It seems to be very popular to view God as angry, judging, full of wrath, hard to please, distant, punishing, not caring, more partial to some than to others.
So we mostly go it alone. Trying to find our own way. Trying to find our way in the darkness.
NEWSFLASH!
You will never find your way through all the distorted darkness of this fallen world without God.
As a result of seeing and viewing God through this distorted darkness, many of us cannot see past the white coats and prescription drugs to the natural foods, herbs and minerals that God has provided for us to be healthy and live the good life He wants for  us.
We no longer trust Him nor believe Him.
I come face to face with the demon of unbelief daily through the faces of so many people who are sick and hurting. People who just don't know if they can trust their lives in the hands of God's remedy over the protocol of their doctors.
As true and as SAD that is, I know how that feels.
But I also know, 18 months ago, if I had actually known a person who was healing naturally, not just something I read on the internet, I would have BELIEVED. I would have jumped at healing naturally.
Now,,,,I want every one to know...I AM A REAL PERSON.
I can testify honestly to God's healing protocol. Good nourishment for your body to heal and help you feel well. I can put you in contact with others that you can actually talk with as well.
Before you or someone you know takes another drop of chemo or radiation, PLEASE contact me through email hopeinthgarden@gmail.com
As awesome as everything is that I am learning about good health, about myself and about God, this has been a tough journey. It was tough physically last year during 7 different kinds of chemo. It has been tough mentally, emotionally and spiritually. And it all began with the start of my Pastor, Max Lucado's sermon series entitled, "You'll Get Through This".
Looking back now, it reminds me of Joshua when he took over leading the Israelites after Moses died.......

God knew this new/next assignment was going to be a tough one. It was going to take focus, digging down deep inside to keep the mind steadfast and well.
It was going to be dangerous...he would be under attack.
It was going to take relying on God completely.
He tells Joshua repeatedly,
"Be strong and courageous."
"Be strong and very courageous."
"Be careful to obey"
"Be careful to do everything I tell  you"
"Be strong and courageous"
"Do not be afraid"
"Do not be discouraged"
He tells him he will lead
He will go with him wherever he goes.
Then the  Holy Spirit puts these same exact words in the mouths of the Joshua's people to encourage Joshua,
"Be strong and courageous."
Early on, Joshua was one of only two, who had been completely confidant that God would take care of them and help them on this dangerous journey.
The path ahead was not going to be easy.
But God KNOWS the way...
The world does not.
Joshua found strength and courage in his relationship with God, and so do I.
Like the Israelites, we have never been this way before.
If we follow God, we will know the way to go.
And He will do amazing things in us.
More than once, Joshua prepares for battle and even before the instructions are given, God tells him, "Do not be afraid. Do not be discouraged." God knows that some of the greatest weapons of the world are fear and discouragement.
But Joshua passed the encouraging words of God onto His people.
The Lord fought for them.
He fights for us everyday. Spiritual warfare is going on all around us.
He battles and protects.
We are oblivious.
In Joshua's dying words he reiterates,
be strong
be careful to obey
hold fast to God
Love the Lord your God.

None of God's promises ever fail.
I promise you, you CAN trust Him and His ways and gifts.
The world wants you to continue to see things through that distorted darkness. It is more profitable for them if you don't see clearly, if you don't trust the natural way of life.
But Jesus is the LIGHT. You can see clearly when  you follow Him.
He is the TRUTH. What He provides and tells us will always stand to be true.
He is the WAY. He has provided good for  us to fully live a healthy life in this world while we are here. We need to trust Him. He warned us to be strong and courageous to lean on Him and He will bring us through. He loves us all so much. He wants us to be well. He is handing the healing to us and we have to decide to take it from his hand or turn and trust the way of the world more.

Trying what doesn't seem possible is always the place where fear meets faith and the face of God.

A Choice We Have To Make

Some people's journey's are short trips...
some last a long lifetime.
I don't know how long mine will last but I am so thankful He is in the drivers seat.
There are days when I wish this part of my journey was over.
This chapter closed.
But all things are in God's time.
He has the whole map and knows what stops are best along the way.
If I rushed past onto what I think is the best destination, I will most definitely miss
encounters I need to have,
sights I must see,
lessons I must learn,
experiences I will be blessed with.
These days, there are divine appointments on just about a weekly basis.
He amazes me at every turn.
It seems precious folks with a cancer diagnosis are climbing out of the woodwork.
The evil one is running rampant, that's for sure.
I want people to know God loves them so much. And among all this evil in the world, all these attacks on us...
He has provided ways for deliverance of our souls for eternity, through life giving blood of Christ,  and deliverance of our bodies from sickness and disease through the life giving plants on our planet.
Both of these come to us by Believing and acceptance.
Believing and accepting deep in our spirits so there is no doubt, for the salvation of our soul and believing and accepting with no doubt or no fear, that HE CAN and WILL heal you from the disease wrenching your physical body.
Fear is probably the greatest tool used against us.
Far too effective in many instances.
Through the last year and a half, I have kept a positive attitude, for the most part. But there have been a few times when I have been attacked as well with the weapon of fear.
But....
Either I have to choose fear....
 or I have to completely trust Him.
 One cannot exist if the other is true.
Fear and faith cannot operate at the same time.

Sometimes it is a hard fight.
It takes a lot of prayer, reading God's scriptures and claiming the divine power that is available to me.
Laughter and getting outside and breathing deep also helps.
Speaking life and thankfulness.
If I'm not speaking life, then I am speaking poison.
A negative attitude, whether in the mind or emotions and/or a heart of fear can give an open door for an attack on our physical bodies.
I REFUSE to accept the fear. It is a lie.

"Our desire for a miracle must be so intense we believe in our spirit that it is already done.
Doubt and unbelief are deadly.  He is my Healer and Deliverer."
Just remember that nothing surprises God. And no matter how much our world shakes, rattles and rolls, He never moves.
I am here to tell you there is so much hope and healing just waiting for you.
"Do Not Be Afraid." That message....straight from God himself.
Trust Him to take away your fear and anxiety and trust him for healing. He is the only way and only one, on the earth and beyond who can deliver our souls and our bodies.
The Only One.
Be Safe in His care.
All fear is but the notion that God's love ends.
"Did you think I end, that I will not be enough? I am infinite, child."

FULL of Healthy Life Changing Information!!!!

Do you know why so many people are dying of cancer?
Do you know why the word cancer strikes fear and anxiety into millions of people?
Do you know why most doctors  think cancer is a death sentence?
Listen closely....
THEY ARE NOT TREATING IT CORRECTLY.

I know any kind of diagnosis that is cancer or another degenerative disease, can throw you off kilter.
Can cloud your brain.
Can send you into a panic.
Please hear me...stop!
Take a deep breath,
 take some time to think.
You are not in the grave. Your still sitting in the same spot you were 10 minutes ago before you knew the diagnosis. The only thing that has changed from last week, last month, is knowledge.
Now you know something you didn't know before.
So, take the time to obtain even more knowledge.
Knowledge that will truly help you.

Cancer is the growth of abnormal cells. We all have them.
What makes the abnormal cells in some of us start growing more than others is what we eat, our environment and our lifestyle.
These are all things you can change. And IF you can change these contributors, then you can change the direction of the cancer!
YOU can.

If our car is broken, we don't fix it by throwing gasoline all over it and setting it on fire. That only makes the situation worse. That would be killing the car.
Well, why would  you want to do the same thing to your own body?
How will throwing liquid fire into your body help it to be healthy again?
IT WON'T!

Contrary to what the doctors are telling you, you don't have to take chemo and radiation.  And you CAN be well again.
Of course, the choice is yours.
The doctors for years have been attempting to treat this disease in the wrong way and failing. Yet they keep doing it and have convinced us, this is the only way. This causes fear in everyone. The chemo and the radiation is what kills.
Cancer is not a death sentence and is not passed down from your mother and grandmother. The thing that is passed down is the bad way we eat and our lifestyle.

Now that I have been through 7 kinds of chemo that did not help me at all but only destroyed parts of my body and now that I am healing naturally, (continual shrinkage of cancer shown in two cat scans)  I hate hearing that anyone is going to go through chemotherapy or radiation.
I want to yell, "Please STOP, please DON'T!"
I have done lots of research, I am trying lots of different protocols, and talking to natural survivors....
I now know...
CANCER CAN BE HEALED.
Loads of people are living, breathing proof.
I want to load this blog post up with information and knowledge for you. And if you have any questions please email me at hopeinthegarden@gmail.com or comment on this post and I will get back with you.
Empower yourself with knowledge.
Take the steps needed for a healthy body and life.
Drink high alkaline water
Stop using fluoride, stop eating processed food, meat, sugar, salt, dairy and foods high in GMOs.
Exercise *see rebound-air.com*
Laugh.
Enjoy life.
Pray and Believe God for all the healing for mind, body and soul that He offers.
GIVE THANKS! Even as you pray.
Thanksgiving precedes the miracle. :)

Juices:
There are many recipes for smoothies and for good juices. However, it is proven, and you can read testimonies on chrisbeatcancer, that pure carrot juice can heal your body in wonderful ways.
The Gerson Therapy subscribes a few very specific juices.
Fresh squeezed orange juice
carrot juice
carrot and apple juice

Green juice recipe:  Dark green lettuces – ¼ to ½ of a head (depending on the size of the lettuce): red and green leaf    lettuces, romaine, endives.  Iceberg is useless and do not use  Escarole – 2 or 3 leaves  Beet tops (young inner leaves) – 2 to 3 leaves  Watercress – 5 or 6 leaves  Red cabbage – 2 or 3 leaves  Green bell pepper – ¼  Swiss chard – little  Green apple – 1   
"My purpose is that they may be encouraged in heart and united in love, so that they may have the full riches of complete understanding, in order that they may know the mystery of God, namely, Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge." Col.2:2-3

I am not only battling the cancer but my body has a couple of other health issues that tend to battle the juicing and vegan eating I am trying to do. So I am trying to raise money to go to the Wellness retreat clinic in Sedona, AZ where they use the Gerson Therapy to help to get these other health issues in line and regulated with the cancer battling juicing and vegan eating. I also believe this would help me to help others with the knowledge. If you would like to help me by donating you can go to www.gofundme.com/38n1ts or via the mail Go Fund Me P.O. Box 2487 Boerne, TX 78006
Thank you so much.
Be blessed. :)

How Big Is Your Cross?

Have you ever heard that story about a man who told Jesus his cross was too heavy for him to bear?
Jesus takes him to a room full of crosses and tells him he can exchange his for one of the ones in this room. When the man enters the room,he sees a room full of crosses....ALL bigger than his own.
He asks to have his old cross back, for it no longer seems as heavy as it once did
We have bad days. 
We have tragedies.
We have a scary diagnosis. 
But someone, somewhere is having a worse day, a worse tragedy, a worse diagnosis.
Nothing that happens to us surprises God.
He knows all.
Sometimes the bad situations in our lives are caused by or a result of  the choices that we have made...
that old free will!
Sometimes it is evil coming against us.
Whatever the reason, you can be assured that God is already at work, making something good come of the situation. Creating a day ahead where you will rejoice and breathe deeper again.
So the question is, would you have made other choices if you had known what the future was going to hold for you?

 "Just that maybe....maybe  you don't want to change the story because you don't know what a different ending holds." (Ann Voscamp)

I can tell you if, I had known years ago, I would be diagnosed with cancer, and given the opportunity, I would have changed my future to hold a different ending.
And I would have made the biggest mistake of my life.

There is a reason I am not writing the story and God is.
He knows how it all works out, where it all leads, what it all means.
I don't.
The 'why' in me simply does not understand some things...
but He does.
To us, it may seem like He is working too slow or not at all.
But He keeps trying to tell us, to show us....
 to take one step at time.
 He gave the Israelites manna each morning...just enough for that day (except the day before the Sabbath).
He says He is a light unto our path...not a light for the whole road, or the whole future....just the path in front of us...
He says He gives us our DAILY bread....enough for today
He says His grace is sufficient for us. sufficient-enough.
Enough. all that we need.
I can tell you this waiting...this slow pace... is very hard for a type A personality, like myself.
One thing I need loads of grace for is WAITING. I don't wait well. But it is in this waiting place where He sometimes needs us to be.
Taking this slower pace. That is where we see Him. That is where He has much to show us.
He says, "In the time of my favor, I will answer you.." He doesn't say, I might answer, He says He will. We just need to wait...He knows the best time for the answer.
Jim Cymbalta said, "Herein lies the battle of faith, to hold on and keep believing God."
As we wait and trust Him, He fills us with all joy and peace. 
So many of us make it through such awful, "don't- know- how-I-lived-through-that", tragedies 
one second at a time,
 one breath, then another,
by abundant grace,
count blessings,
Give thanks and receive peace and joy.
The "make no sense events" in our lives, the wounds, the tragedies...
are our places to see God, places to cause us to get closer to God...
and believe it or not...
that makes it all worth it.
I remember I had prayed, a few years ago, telling God, "I am seeking you with all my heart and you said I would find you.."
I did.
I would not have wanted to go on living my life without having gone through this.
 Please read that again. I NEEDED it.
If I had been able to change my course I would have missed truly knowing Him. I would have missed seeing Him, I would have missed being released from the heavy crosses I bore.
Now, in spite of all the work of the protocol, learning to cook and eat differently, the days when it all seems too much....
I can't wait to see how it all ends!!!

Go ahead....take flight!!

Yesterday, as I sat at my computer, in my sunroom, a very loud thud scared the daylights out of me!
 It sounded like someone slammed themselves up against the house or one of the large picture windows.
My heart was pounding in my chest as I got up to look outside.
Nothing. I didn't see anything.
But my daughter Candace saw something from her bedroom window.
There behind my wash tub of flowers, sitting on the back porch, was a scared, stunned no less, dove.
He must have hit the window. And believe me, he hit it hard!
We decided to let it sit for awhile and allow it to regain it's senses and then see if it was alright.
Well,,,,
it sat there from 10-3:00! We would check on it every once in a while and it was still moving.
When my husband came home, he went out to take it some water in a dish. He was very quiet and slid the dish closer to the bird.
All of a sudden it flew into the grass, then, realizing it could fly, it took off and flew perfectly for as far as we could see.
We were so pleasantly surprised that it could fly and was doing so well.
Later, I was thinking about that dove, I thought, that is exactly how many of us are.
Something traumatic happens to us, and it paralyzes us for awhile. We try to be still in one place not sure if we can move and go forward. 
Until...something pushes us to take off or.... just sit there, do nothing and die.
 All the while we are capable of flying if we just would step out on faith and take the chance.
The choices that we make...a thin line in time
where at this very point...
a culmination of everything...
the decision that you make will affect the outcome of your life....
Will put you on the road to a fuller life or
the road to a shorter life.
And our decisions, are heavier than we realize, because they will most certainly affect many around us, especially our families.
And this is how we pass on faith,
Good eating and life habits.
These things will all make the biggest difference in the future
generations of your family.
MORE than anything else you hope to pass down.

This journey isn't easy...
not in your life's story and not in mine.
Now that I am in the middle of this story...
more and more I hear about people being diagnosed with cancer.
Before Jan. 2012, I would hear this once in a while and for a minute or two, I would think, "oh, that's awful", then it faded into the recesses of my mind, as I went on with a lot of superficial stuff in my own life. And I can tell this is how so many friends of mine have reacted to me. It fades...I am forgotten.
Recently, I hear these stories more and more. Especially since people are actually seeking me out for direction down the natural healing path.  And every single time I hear of another life invaded by this disease, I get a sense of urgency. 
Too many are taking the wrong path.
I want to hold up signs...
CAUTION!!!
WRONG WAY!!!
ROAD CLOSED!!!
This past week I got a call from a sweet lady telling me her mom was in ICU after one day of chemo and they didn't want to  take the chemo anymore...they wanted my  help to heal natural.
This woman has stage IV breast cancer metastasized to her liver and lungs and now had infections and could hardly breathe on her own.
We made two runs in two days to the hospital to take supplements to help her.
The doctor told the daughter her mom would never walk out of ICU.
Today she was moved from ICU to a regular room! She is doing much better. They will continue giving her the natural supplements, get her stronger and home so we can start working on getting rid of the cancer.
We are all thanking God. We had covered her in much prayer. He is our healer and provider of all that is good and all that we need.

Life gets heavy and hectic...
Stop.
Purposefully make yourself  think of a few things you are so  thankful for in your life.
Have a thankful heart.
Being thankful eases our nerves, releases our stress, allows us to trust God and see Him more and allows Him more room to work.
Keep your eyes on Him and not on your pain.
Don't lose your grip on hope.
Faith sometimes is all  you have--
But in Christ...
IT IS ENOUGH.
Isn't that what we need--
ENOUGH?

I know this vegetarian diet is hard.
I know making and drinking these juices is hard.
But it is not as hard as sitting there allowing them to run nuclear fire through your veins.
 Destroying you.
The vegetables and juices are given by God for your healing. They WILL heal.

You can be empowered by what you put in your mouth and your mind. And it can change our lives and our destiny.
You can eat  yourself to poor health and early death or...
eat yourself to good health and a long life.
Let's be honest....
These green juices are NOT yummy!
But sometimes we have to do hard things.
Just push through...
pray through....don't stop praying, trusting and thanking God even through the brokenness and mess.
 He has something better for you always...He loves you so much.
Pray Until Something Happens...P.U.S.H
You are one prayer away from a miracle.

Healing Naturally Protocol

Chemo and radiation are what kills people.
 It is not a way to save a life. I can't stomach the thought or mention of anyone taking chemo. It gives me such a sense of urgency! Please pass this on to everyone!
God provided redemption for us in the Garden in more ways than one. He gave us everything we need for nourishment and good health. We have just gotten away from using it and instead rely on man made food and medicine...which our bodies were not made to consume. We are getting tumors and cancer from our environment and mostly from the foods we consume. So we can't keep giving it the same thing that is making it sick and expect the body to get well.
 
If you go to www.chrisbeatcancer.com a tab on the left tells about testimonials of lots of people who have healed from cancer and other diseases, using natural methods. Most of them have in common:
1. vegetarian diet (organic)
2. no meat!
3. no sugar (sugar feeds tumors)
4. no salt
5. no dairy or animal products
6. vegetable juices (organic)
7. Take supplements.
Chris Wark from the above mentioned website, healed using this protocol.  
I am using the Gerson Therapy. I have done a lot of research and talked to people who have healed using this protocol and I completely believe in it. This means following the above steps, with eating a certain way, and 10-13 specific vegetable juices a day and 3-4 coffee enemas. Drinking this many vegetable juices a day, which is about 7-8 pounds of carrots a day along with all of the green vegetables, floods your system with a ton of good enzymes and nutrients. This will push all the bad toxins into blood stream. The coffee enemas cleanse the toxins out and detox's the liver. www.gerson.com
Books:  Healing the Gerson Way
The Gerson Therapy
The China Study
Movies: (Netflix on line) FORKS OVER KNIVES ( AMAZING)
The Beautiful Truth ( this is actually in the back of the Healing the Gerson Way book)
 
YOU MUST try to alkalize your body. This is done through eating vegetables, juices and drinking high alkaline water.
 
The following are some essential Supplements. As you detox these will kill the tumors and heal and revitalize  your body.....
Pancreatin...this breaks down the outer covering of tumors leaving them vulnerable to be killed
Tumeric... the best source is actually Curamed!!! Wonderful Turmeric kills tumors
Vitamin C powder ...Health force foods
CoQ10
Chlorella by www.healthforce.com you can read about this amazing supplement on the web page....very important
Spirulina... very very important ( a Harvard study was done on this and it proved to cure cancer)
Cell Food one drop in every ounce of liquid you drink. It oxygenates the cells and cancer cannot grow in that state. MD Anderson did a study on this and at 110 drops a day it cured cancer.
Vitamin B12
Potassium
***Essiac**  This has healed cancer for decades but is not sold in the US. I get it from Canada. 3, three times a day. www.essiacproducts.com
There is also another one sold here in the US, (boerne) called Ezzeac. Almost the same formula but they only have liquid and it tastes SO BAD, plus it is not the exact same original formula.
www.healingstrong.com (conference coming up in Sept.)
My green juice consists of:
Organic.
Dark green lettuces – ¼ to ½ of a head (depending on the size of the lettuce): red and green leaf    lettuces, romaine, endives.  Iceberg is useless and do not use  Escarole – 2 or 3 leaves  Beet tops (young inner leaves) – 2 to 3 leaves  Watercress – 5 or 6 leaves  Red cabbage – 2 or 3 leaves  Green bell pepper – ¼  Swiss chard – little  Green apple – 1   
Then I drink 2 plain 8 oz carrot juices a day and 3-5 carrot/apple juices 
I  would be happy to answer any questions and help you out if you need some help with any of this.
 I believe God wants people well and I believe we have to believe in His healing with a thankful heart, using what He gave us to heal. I heard someone say cancer was a toothless tiger. I now believe that as well, if treated correctly.
 
 LATEST CANCER INFORMATION

AFTER YEARS OF TELLING PEOPLE CHEMOTHERAPY IS THE ONLY WAY TO TRY AND ELIMINATE CANCER, JOHNS HOPKINS IS FINALLY STARTING TO TELL YOU THERE IS AN ALTERNATIVE WAY …

...
[Cancer Update from Johns Hopkins ]

1. Every person has cancer cells in the body. These cancer cells do not show up in the standard tests until they have multiplied to a few billion. When doctors tell cancer patients that there are no more cancer cells in their bodies after treatment, it just means the tests are unable to detect the cancer cells because they have not reached the detectable size.

2. Cancer cells occur between 6 to more than 10 times in a person's lifetime.

3. When the person's immune system is strong the cancer cells will be destroyed and prevented from multiplying and forming tumors.

4. When a person has cancer it indicates the person has multiple nutritional deficiencies. These could be due to genetic, environmental, food and lifestyle factors.

5. To overcome the multiple nutritional deficiencies, changing diet and including supplements will strengthen the immune system.

6. Chemotherapy involves poisoning the rapidly-growing cancer cells and also destroys rapidly-growing healthy cells in the bone marrow, gastro-intestinal tract etc, and can cause organ damage, like liver, kidneys, heart, lungs etc.

7. Radiation while destroying cancer cells also burns, scars and damages healthy cells, tissues and organs.

8. Initial treatment with chemotherapy and radiation will often reduce tumor size. However prolonged use of chemotherapy and radiation do not result in more tumor destruction.

9. When the body has too much toxic burden from chemotherapy and radiation the immune system is either compromised or destroyed, hence the person can succumb to various kinds of infections and complications.

10. Chemotherapy and radiation can cause cancer cells to mutate and become resistant and difficult to destroy. Surgery can also cause cancer cells to spread to other sites.


11. An effective way to battle cancer is to STARVE the cancer cells by not feeding it with foods it needs to multiple.

What cancer cells feed on:

a. Sugar is a cancer-feeder. By cutting off sugar it cuts off one important food supply to the cancer cells. Note: Sugar substitutes like NutraSweet, Equal, Spoonful, etc are made with Aspartame and it is harmful. A better natural substitute would be Manuka honey or molasses but only in very small amounts. Table salt has a chemical added to make it white in colour. Better alternative is Bragg's aminos or sea salt.


b. Milk causes the body to produce mucus, especially in the gastro-intestinal tract. Cancer feeds on mucus. By cutting off milk and substituting with unsweetened soy milk, cancer cells will starved.

c. Cancer cells thrive in an acid environment. A meat-based diet is acidic and it is best to eat fish, and a little chicken rather than beef or pork. Meat also contains livestock antibiotics, growth hormones and parasites, which are all harmful, especially to people with cancer.

d. A diet made of 80% fresh vegetables and juice, whole grains, seeds, nuts and a little fruits help put the body into an alkaline environment. About 20% can be from cooked food including beans. Fresh vegetable juices provide live enzymes that are easily absorbed and reach down to cellular levels within 15 minutes t o nourish and enhance growth of healthy cells.

To obtain live enzymes for building healthy cells try and drink fresh vegetable juice (most vegetables including bean sprouts) and eat some raw vegetables 2 or 3 times a day. Enzymes are destroyed at temperatures of 104 degrees F (40 degrees C).

e. Avoid coffee, tea, and chocolate, which have high caffeine. Green tea is a better alternative and has cancer-fighting properties. Water--best to drink purified water, or filtered, to avoid known toxins and heavy metals in tap water. Distilled water is acidic, avoid it.

12. Meat protein is difficult to digest and requires a lot of digestive enzymes. Undigested meat remaining in the intestines will become putrified and leads to more toxic buildup.

13. Cancer cell walls have a tough protein covering. By refraining from or eating less meat it frees more enzymes to attack the protein walls of cancer cells and allows the body's killer cells to destroy the cancer cells.

14. Some supplements build up the immune system (IP6, Flor-ssence, Essiac, anti-oxidants, vitamins, minerals, EFAs etc.) to enable the body's own killer cells to destroy cancer cells. Other supplements like vitamin E are known to cause apoptosis, or programmed cell death, the body's normal method of disposing of damaged, unwanted, or unneeded cells.

15. Cancer is a disease of the mind, body, and spirit. A proactive and positive spirit will help the cancer warrior be a survivor.

Anger, unforgiving and bitterness put the body into a stressful and acidic environment. Learn to have a loving and forgiving spirit. Learn to relax and enjoy life.

16. Cancer cells cannot thrive in an oxygenated environment. Exercising daily, and deep breathing help to get more oxygen down to the cellular level. Oxygen therapy is another means employed to destroy cancer cells.
