   When I began this weekend… I knew I would write about “your conscious being,”  however didn’t know how that would transpire. From beginning my cancer research in March 2006 ….with a vision through prayer arrived upon at  Mass in Carey, OHIO.  To meeting a …. Good Friend Rosa Parkin through our Facebook group.  Going from bedridden  with  a  8 cm Leiomyosarcoma tumor …in her uterus …. to flying out to Oregon with a meet and greet from Brighton in the United Kingdom 7 months later.

   In the nine months I knew Rosa: I came to realize it was with “her” renewed spirit  and HOPE that caused that tumour to shrink as she told me in Portland. And through my own eyed experienced seen the fear she had of Losing her battle and son Manu to this dreadful disease at such an early age in Life… 44 years.  As Rosa would type vigorously everyday in That Memorial Day weekend 2015 in her stress filled “frantic” attempt to find answers.
  Meet Melissa Lyn DeNault 🙂
   Ken I had run out of treatment options as surgery, and numerous chemos had failed, and I had numerous tumors so radiation was not an option. I knew CART-T Cell therapy held great promise and knew the CarT program was about to open …at Dana Farber …in Boston. However,  it was a month until it opened ~ it would be another month from there until I could  received treatment and at that point my two oncologist told me …. I didn’t have two months to wait.
  I did not like the options they offered, so enrolled in a CarT in San Diego. I was going to travel across the country for CarT because I knew it was what would save me. I went into    it pretty much dying from cancer at that point. I had about a few weeks left to live, had started to go downhill but I knew at the same time that I wasn’t dying .
 The morning my father and I were going to leave for our flight, my oncologist called from U. Mass General and said a spot had opened up that morning.  Since my side effects were so severe,  San Diego would not have worked and likely would’ve killed me.
   At one point I was dying and there were no treatment options but by getting myself in proper alignment and putting myself in an actor role in my treatment plan, miraculous opportunities would line up. I knew CarT only works for 50% of patients but intuitively,       I knew it would work for me. That’s why I would not look at  other studies, that was the only path to living dying was not an option for me.
  Ken in my Healing Journey was a path I was offered and I made it happen.  I used the book:  Getting Well Again  by Carl Simonton in which was exercises:  I knew I had to do.      I did visualization twice a day and used some aspects of radical remission but mostly was guided intuitively … and it was after I began the exercises in Carl’s book,  is when I came across Jenny. It all of it helped in moving from a place of complete fear of leaving my son that was crippling me,  to a place of complete empowerment and knowing I would live even though they were telling me otherwise.
   It’s hard to trust a stranger online for healing work. I was lead to Jenny in just the right time,  as she played an integral role in my healing journey.  Things started to change from that point from complete fear to empowerment. I went through about a year and a half or news that got worse and worse each step of the way until I was just about dying.
   In my book the Will to Survive,  I am the will to survive, The battle call that screams out In the silence of the night.  A silence deafened, when warrior ignites. I am the spirit of the souls who came before.  Let Your Spirit Sing (Giroux) 
Clawing at life, the greatest of fights; I am their plight. I am the love for my child that says, “I won’t let me fall, hold on my little guy.  Love is stronger than all”.  Will Yourself to WIN!  
    I am the light that never fades,  When encompassed by darkness. In an instant all can be     lit, With even the tiniest spark. I am the hope that never dies, In all the survivors, I am the way in their eyes. Guiding me to their path, With no compromise. I’m the change that will seal my fate, Charging towards life, A lion at the gate. 
    All thoughts point to healing, All else dissipates. I am the will to survive, Manifesting    my destiny Guiding it’s course….  with the Opportunities that had began to arise.
I… Am my life after all!
Thanks for the share,
Melissa xoxo <3

HOPE Heals by Jackie Sarnecky

Whatever I can say right now to tell you to watch this video
to glean wisdom from this young woman’s story.
I feel it isn’t enough.  I can’t do it justice.
                                                 ^  click image to be taken to the video ^
I can tell you that we have many, many mutual friends.
We attended the same church.
And though before this part of her journey began we had not met,
her story and her family’s faith through it touched me so deeply. I came alongside so many praying for her and her family.Her mother’s writings through that time were so beautiful
and painful and raw and awe inspiring. Katherine Arnold Wolf wasn’t supposed to be alive.
And if it weren’t for her six month old baby boy,
the surgeon said he most likely would not have tried to save her.
Plus, her husband Jay was in law school.
He was set to take the bar exam I believe that very day.
His chosen profession also had people advising against the risk of a lawsuit.
Other doctors admitted by the look of things they would not have tried.It looked that bad. That hopeless. But her story of recovery and survival is against all odds. It’s a miracle and the Lord’s hand is seen all throughout it.
It still is.
And her life is a testimony to how Hope Heals.
I’ve since met Katherine and can tell you she is every bit as sweet and kind
and caring and full of life as I had read and heard.  I love that she hasn’t lost her spirit
through it all.     Katherine’s story of courage and hope and optimism
through continued struggles and life altering changes is still awe inspiring.
You just must take the time to watch the unfolding of her story.
It’s better than me trying to explain it all.
What Katherine doesn’t know is during my deepest struggles
with lupus, which I know is absolutely nothing compared to
what she was going through.  It was her story of fighting
through something so extreme that would inspire me and help me push through.
And I think her journey has touched many in this way.
Because we all have struggles.  We all have trials.
We all have days where it feels too much.
But we can learn from Katherine’s tenacity, her faith, her determination.
And the healing power of hope.  https://www.facebook.com/willowofwonder/

Solitarius: My Quest to Understand!!!

Scientists have located the conscience 🙂

ventromedial prefrontal cortex

by Kounteya Sinha

The part of the brain that makes humans superior to all known animals, and which also functions as the voice from within — popularly called conscience  has finally been found.

| TNN | Jan 31, 2014, 05.56 AM IST

London Scientists from the Oxford University have for the first time identified an area of the human brain that appears unlike anything in the brains of other primates. It is part of the Ventrolateral Frontal Cortex, a region of the brain known for over 150 years for being involved in many of the highest aspects of cognition and language.

To look into which part of this region actually controls our superior decision making , scientists carried out MRI scans in both humans and monkeys. They found one area of the cortex that had no equivalent in the macaque monkeys — an area called the lateral frontal pole prefrontal cortex.

“We have established an area in human frontal cortex — the brain area known to be intimately involved in the most advanced planning and decision-making processes — that we think of as being especially human. It does not seem to have an equivalent in the monkey. This area has also been identified with multi-tasking ,” says author Franz-Xaver Neubert of Oxford University.

Scientists also believe that lateral frontal pole prefrontal cortex is the loud (inner ) voice that pricks whenever we are inclined towards evil or blunder in our lives. Oxford scientists say this is the region that tells us when we go wrong and whether we have been well advised to do something better.

MRI imaging of 25 adult volunteers was used to identify key components in the cortex area of the human brain, and how these components were connected up with other brain areas.

The results were then compared to equivalent MRI data from 25 macaque monkeys.



Patients with bilateral lesions of the vmPFC develop severe impairments in personal      and social decision-making even though most of their intellectual ability is preserved.

For instance, they have difficulties in choosing between options with almost uncertain    outcomes, whether the uncertainty is in the form of a risk or of an ambiguity. After their lesion, these patients have an impaired capacity to learn from their mistakes, making the same decisions again and again even though they lead to negative consequences.

These patients choose alternatives that give immediate rewards, but seem to be blind to the future consequences of their actions. However, the underlying mechanisms of this behaviour are not yet fully understood.

Damage to the ventromedial prefrontal cortex (especially in the right hemisphere)          has been connected with deficits in detecting irony, sarcasm, and deception. Subjects    with damage in this area have been found to be more easily influenced by misleading advertising. This has been attributed to a disruption of a “false tagging mechanism”   which provides doubt and skepticism of new beliefs.

People with damage to the ventromedial prefrontal cortex still retain the ability to consciously make moral judgments without error,  but only in hypothetical situations presented to them. There is a gap in reasoning when applying the same moral principles  to similar situations in their own lives.

The result is that people make decisions that are inconsistent with their self professed moral values. People with early damage to the ventromedial prefrontal cortex are more likely to endorse self-serving actions that break moral rules or cause harm to others.     This is especially true for patients whose damage occurred the earliest in life.

Regulation of Emotion

Activation of the vmPFC is associated with successful suppression of emotional     responses to a negative emotional signal.

Patients with vmPFC lesions have shown defects both in emotional response and emotion regulation.  Their emotional responsivity is generally diminished and they show markedly reduced social emotions  such as compassion,  shame  and guilt.  These are emotions that  are closely associated with moral values. Patients also exhibit poorly regulated anger and frustration tolerance in certain circumstances.

Patients with focal lesions in the vmPFC show personality changes such as lack of empathy, irresponsibility, and poor decision making. These traits are similar to psychopathic personality traits.

The right half of the ventromedial prefrontal cortex was associated with regulating the interaction of cognition and affect in the production of empathic responses. Hedonic (pleasure) responses were also associations to orbitofrontal cortex activity level by   Morten Kringelbach.

This finding contributes findings suggesting ventromedial prefrontal cortex being associated with preference judgement, possibly assigning the ventromedial prefrontal cortex a key role in constructing one’s self.  Studies with PTSD also supported the idea   that the ventromedial prefrontal cortex is an important component for reactivating past emotional associations and events, therefore essentially mediating pathogenesis of PTSD.

Treatments geared to the activation of the ventromedial prefrontal cortex were therefore suggested for PTSD. The right half of the ventrolateral prefrontal cortex, being active during emotion regulation, was activated when participants were offered an unfair offer   in a scenario.

The capacity for mature defense mechanisms such as intellectualization, compensation, reaction formation, .and also isolation. has been tied .to proper functioning of the right ventromedial prefrontal cortex, while more primitive defense mechanisms ….such as…. projection, splitting, verbal denial, and fantasy have been found to rely on other regions, primarily in the left hemisphere.   How does human conscious helps us heal!!!!

shutterstock_88192939 Does a mouse think like a human?  Does a cat?  Or Does a macaque monkey? These are fascinating questions to ask on a philosophical level,            but they are also of immense practical importance.

Current regulations on drug development mean that animal research plays a huge role in deciding what substances might be safe and beneficial to humans.  This has lead to great success in understanding many aspects of how the body works, and using that to develop treatments.

But is the nervous system different?  If it contains the main adaptations that mean humans can do many more complex things than other animals, can working out how an animal’s brain works reap the same rewards?  Many drug companies have spent a lot of money on compounds that worked very well on mouse behaviours, but did not have the desired effect in humans.  This has contributed to some of them pulling out of neuroscience research altogether.  It means that finding ways to better understand how similar/different animals’ brains are from each other can offer both the hope of better treatments for humans, and fewer animals used to find those treatments.

Using imaging to do this allows for more humane studies of animals close to us the evolutionary tree.  It also offers the opportunity for speculation about the areas of the brain that ‘make us human’.  Whilst it is impossible that there is one area of the brain that contains the essence of humanity, the differences between species offers vital clues as to how the brain functions.

Researchers from Oxford have been combining data from humans and macaque monkeys across a series of studies, and the one we are focusing on today is on a part of the frontal lobe (see figure 1).

The ventral, inferior frontal cortex (vIFC) has been linked with a range of functions,         but seems to be heavily involved in modelling the potential consequences of actions        and selecting appropriate behaviours for the situation.  It includes Broca’s area, long recognised as part of the system that understands and produces speech.

Figure 1 - Click on the image to see a bigger version

Figure 1 – Click on the image to see a bigger version


The study had three goals:

  • Split up the human vIFC based on where each sub-region connects to anatomically
  • See what the pattern of functional connectivity is for these areas
  • Compare this pattern to macaque monkeys

In order to do this the researchers scanned 25 healthy humans using MRI.  They used two types of MRI scanning: examining the white matter connections in the brain (anatomical connectivity) and functional MRI at rest (functional connectivity).  They also scanned 25 macaque monkeys using fMRI while they were anaesthetised.

The researchers used some very sophisticated analysis methods to meet their goals.  Every tiny area (a 5x5x5mm voxel) in the vIFC was examined for its connection patterns to the rest of the brain.  These connection patterns were then compared to each other and the voxels that had similar pattern were grouped together.  Finally these groups were fitted back onto the anatomy of the brain.  Figure 1 shows the subdivisions found.

A different method was used to subdivide the monkey’s putative equivalent brain areas.  This was done by using already published maps subdividing the macaque brain.  These maps are made by identifying areas that have similar patterns of cells, not anatomical connections. This has been done with humans as well (Broadman areas) and the areas described overlap substantially with the imaging findings in this study, but by no means exactly.

Finally the functional connectivity was compared from region to region to see if the human and monkey regions of the brain match up in how they connect to the rest of the brain.


There was both substantial overlap between human and monkey brain function, and key differences.  The detail for each area is fascinating and if your neuroanatomy is up to it I’d highly recommend looking at the paper’s figures, e.g. figure 2 for two of the subdivisions of the motor part of the vIFC

  • In areas associated with using visual information for motor control and planning the humans and macaques were very similar
  • Some human areas implicated in language showed very similar patterns to equivalent monkey areas, despite macaques not having sophisticated language skills.
    • This provides support for the idea that there is not a specific/separate language network in humans.  Language processing probably ‘built upon existing mechanisms for sensory –motor mapping, sequential motor learning or multimodal sensory integration’
    • But there was a crucial difference in how much auditory processing impacted on the frontal areas
      • There was much, much more in humans and we are much better at auditory tasks than macaques
      • There was an area in the very front of the brain (labelled FPI on figure 1) that was only found in humans.  It was highly correlated with other areas of the frontal lobe but its contribution to brain function is not entirely clear.

Sum Up

  • This study offers a fascinating insight into cutting edge research into how human brains and macaque monkey brains compare
  • Despite differences in how they were studied, the human and macaque brains demonstrated a striking level of similarity in some areas
  • But there were clear differences in others, especially regarding auditory processing
  • It is far too simplistic to say that one area is the root of the difference between humans and monkeys
  • Improved understanding of how human brains relate to animal brains will hopefully allow us to use less animals in research and find better treatments, quicker

Clearly, this blog is much more than an opportunity to show cute photos of monkeys.

The first rule of blogging: Never pass up the chance to include cute photos of monkeys 🙂

 Many cognitive scientists believe that humans’ ability to innovate by varying syntax engenders much of the richness and complexity of our thoughts and ideas. This gulf between humans and our nearest primate relatives is but one of many.


 Humans are bipedal, and except for short bouts of uprightness, great apes walk on all fours. It’s a profound disparity.

Kevin Hunt, director of the Human Origins and Primate Evolution Lab at Indiana University, thinks humans’ ancestors stood upright in order to reach vegetation in low-hanging tree branches. “When Africa started getting drier … about 6.5 million years ago,  our ancestors were stuck in the east part,  where the habitat became driest,”  Hunt told Life’s Little Mysteries.

“Trees in dry habitats are shorter and different than trees in forests: In those dry habitats, if you stand up next to a 6-foot-tall tree, you can reach food. In the forest if you stand up, you’re 2 feet closer to a tree that’s 100 feet tall and it doesn’t do you the least bit of good.”

Thus, our ancestors stood up in the scrubby, dry areas of Africa. Chimps in the forests did not.

Charles Darwin was the first to figure it out why the simple act of standing up made all the difference in separating man from ape.  One word:  tools.  “Once we became bipedal, we had hands to carry tools around. We started doing that only 1.5 million years after we became bipedal,” Hunt explained. Give it a couple million years and we turned those chipped stones into iPads.

[Read: Why Haven’t All Primates Evolved into Humans?]


According to Hunt, if you shave a chimp and take a photo of its body from the neck to the waist, “at first glance you wouldn’t really notice that it isn’t human.” The two species’ musculature is extremely similar, but somehow, pound-for-pound, chimps are between two and three times stronger than humans. “Even if we worked out for 12 hours a day like they do, we wouldn’t be nearly as strong,” Hunt said.

Once, in an African forest, Hunt watched an 85-pound female chimp snap branches off an aptly-named ironwood tree with her fingertips. It took Hunt two hands and all the strength he could muster to snap an equally thick branch.

No one knows where chimps get all that extra power. “Some of their muscle arrangement is different — the attachment points of their muscles are arranged   for power rather than speed,” Hunt said. “It may be that that’s all there is to it,     but those who study chimp anatomy are shocked  they can get that much more power out of subtle changes in muscle attachment points.”

[Read: Planet of the Apes: Can Chimps Really Shoot Guns?]

Alternatively, their muscle fibers may be denser, or there may be physiochemical advantages in the way they contract. Whatever the case may be, the outcome is clear: “If a chimp throws a big rock and you go over and try to throw it, you just can’t,” Hunt said.


Herb Terrace, the primate cognition scientist who led Project Nim, thinks chimps lack a “theory of mind”: They cannot infer the mental state of another individual, whether they are happy, sad, angry, interested in some goal, in love, jealous or otherwise. Though chimps are very proficient at reading body language, Terrace explained, they cannot contemplate another being’s state of mind when there is no body language. “I believe that a theory of mind was the big breakthrough by our ancestors,” he wrote in an email. [Video: Trailer for ‘Project Nim’ Documentary]

Why does he think that? It goes back to Nim the signing chimp’s linguistic skills. Like an infant human, Nim spoke in “imperative mode,” demanding things he wanted. But infantile demands aren’t really the hallmark of language. As humans grow older, unlike chimps, we develop a much richer form of communication: “declarative mode.”

“Declarative language is based on conversational exchanges between a speaker and a listener for the purpose of exchanging information,” Terrace wrote. “It is maintained by secondary rewards such as ‘thank you,’ ‘that’s very interesting,’ ‘glad you mentioned that.’ In the case of declarative language, a theory of mind is clearly necessary. If the speaker and the listener could not assume that their conversational partners had a theory of mind there would be no reason for them to talk to each other. Why bother if there is no expectation that your audience would understand what you said?”

He added, “I know of no example of a conversation by non-human animals.” This limitation, perhaps more than any other, prevents a series of events like that in the new film “Rise of the Planet of the Apes.” In the film, chimps learn sign language — a realistic scenario. But it’s a stretch to imagine them using their new skill to discuss and plan a world takeover.


The chimpanzee genome was sequenced for the first time in 2005. It was found to differ from the human genome with which it was compared, nucleotide-for-nucleotide, by about 1.23 percent. This amounts to about 40 million differences in our DNA, half of which likely resulted from mutations in the human ancestral line and half in the chimp line since the two species diverged. [Read: How Many Genetic Mutations Do I Have?]

From those mutations come the dramatic differences in the species that we see today — differences in intelligence, anatomy, lifestyle and, not least, success at colonizing the planet.

 Laurie Santos studies primate psychology and monkeynomicstesting problems in human psychology on primates, who (not so surprisingly) have many of the same predictable irrationalities we do.

Why you should listen

Laurie Santos runs the Comparative Cognition Laboratory (CapLab) at Yale, where she and collaborators across departments (from psychology to primatology to neurobiology) explore the evolutionary origins of the human mind by studying lemurs, capuchin monkeys and other primates. The twist: Santos looks not only for positive humanlike traits, like tool-using and altruism, but irrational ones, like biased decisionmaking.

In elegant, carefully constructed experiments, Santos and CapLab have studied how primates understand and categorize objects in the physical world, for instance, that monkeys understand an object is still whole even when part of it is obscured.  Going deeper,b their experiments also search for clues that primates possess a theory of mind — an ability to think about what other people think.

Most recently, the lab has been looking at behaviors that were once the province mainly    of novelists: jealousy, frustration, judgment of others’ intentions, poor economic choices. In one experiment,  Santos  and her team taught monkeys to use a form of money, tradeable for food.  When certain foods became cheaper,  monkeys would,  like humans, overbuy. As we humans search for clues to our own irrational behaviors, Santos’ research suggests that the source of our genius for bad decisions might be our monkey brains.

What others say

“Through a series of groundbreaking experiments, Santos has seen in her primates a humanlike propensity for hoarding, larceny, and competitiveness. By exploring the inner lives of primates,  she has offered persuasive evidence that monkeys are capable of sophisticated insight, complex reasoning, and calculated action.” Laurie Santos looks for the roots of human irrationality by watching the way our primate relatives make decisions. A clever series of experiments in “monkeynomics” shows that some of the silly choices we make, monkeys make too.

Humour in MY Tumour

Image may contain: 1 person, closeupImage may contain: one or more people

As  I  leave Brannenburg in Oberbayern – Germany today.

I have never felt so much peace, happiness, healing and excitement about my life!

This place really does heal your soul as well as your body it’s like nowhere else.                  I’ve ever been! Thank you Dr.  Axel Weber!

One thing I know is that I am meant to live in the countryside with nature and animals possibly maybe humans if your nice 😉

There’s so much I am passionate about on my soul path now and I have been fasting and in deep prayer while I’ve been here so I feel on such a high and deep awareness that I am already healed energetically my physical body just needs to catch up!

So it’s time for me to step up and get on with my life!! I am so grateful to you all for donating and supporting me on this huge journey!!

I have faced death many times on this path but I feel as humans we are more afraid to truly live from our hearts and authentically than dying and I feel so grateful that I am doing just that!

Today I celebrate who I am and I love what I see back at me in the mirror! One amazing sensitive beautiful kind wise kick ass independent woman on a mission! Thank you cancer!

I love my life and I love my cancer journey it’s been tough as you know but I know my soul needed this! No more suffering now just an open road! A blank canvas! I am ready to shine!

I couldn’t be here in this wise wonderful place without all of you so thank you! If anyone could donate or share my fund I still owe money to Dr Weber but I am trusting it will all unfold!

If anyone has faith it’s me as you all know!

Here’s to love too as I may even be open to fall in love who knows (form an orderly queue 😉  but what I do know is that I am so happy and whole and I am enjoying the best love affair of my life… unconditionally loving myself! Best medicine in the world 💕

Love you all and thank you! I plan to come back here in August a year to the day I first arrived! I also plan to be cancer free by then!

Then my book finally sharing everything with you all! Anyone want to guess the title?


Its time to say goodbye to her
My amazing incredible breast tumour
Its been a pain in the ass a total blast!
So long! Adios! It’s the end at last!

Thank you for waking & shaking me up
Allowing me to feel unconditional love
Thank you for the heart stopping fear
The huge lessons I will hold forever dear
From the very start I knew it was a lesson from my soul to my heart

A wake up call to help me stand tall
Wipe the tears away no more hitting brick walls
Now only love can shine through
Thank you cancer a beautiful gift from you!

You see its all a cosmic giggle
I’ve a glide in my stride with a sazzy wiggle
What was supposed to bring death and fear
Just opened up love, living life in top gear.

I found some humour in my tumour
She has done her job so well
Its been so undeniably swell
All I can say is in surrendering to love
Has showered me with gifts from God above
So much healing in my life, body, mind and soul
Has brought about miracles that I cherish and forever hold

For with my tumour she has given me self power
With faith & heavens love it’s a blessed shower
No more tears and crying in pain
No more hurt, sorrow and utter shame
All has been released because I had faith
So can all women its never too late

Trust in yourself and know you can do it
When your body gives you pain you can see through it
The lessons its brought me has made me empowered
Self love and juicing gave me time to recharge
No more meeting for coffee with chums
Us natural girls have coffee up our bums!
Enemas and juicing everyday
Gratitude and love every time I pray

Its time to say thank you and a huge goodbye
Its been emotional I know but I wont cry
For everything you showed me has been healing and miracles
Not what most people expected
Probably me to be hysterical!

Cancer is not a battle or a victim’s tale
Or a journey when you take chemo and end up frail
It’s a magnificent healing of anger and resentment
Saying goodbye to the past and living in contentment

Opening up to loving your day
To smile and be happy with gratitude keeps fear at bay
To thank God for all of life’s wonders
Not a time to be depressed and go under

If only we can see the love that surrounds us
It would make our journey graceful and full of trust
So i thank my tumour for the beautiful humour
For bringing me here on this magical tour

As the journey is getting ready to come to a wonderful stop
I’ve managed to get it, the whole bloody lot!
So time for a new chapter where love is the best
I am happy and joyful I had courage to stand out from the rest

This tumour has given me my life’s purpose now
I am beaming with pride and so proud
Time to share this amazing time
With women worldwide I’ve got my life back in line

Everything I could ever wish for is happening to me
This tumour dance has set us both free
We both have shared our time in this lesson
But now time for living life its gonna be one happy session

Taking the darkness trip that cancer can bring
It has thought my heart and soul to sing
I am flying high and ready to soar
So now that life is not a meaningless chore

Life is what you make it each day as you rise
Fill your life with joy and laughter with lots of surprise
Letting the darkness go and embracing love
Heaven will shower you with your wishes from above

Being conscious of our thoughts & emotions as they create our disease
I get it all now my body mind & spirit are so pleased
Its time to say goodbye to her
My amazing incredible tumour
Its been a pain in the ass a total blast
Thank you God i can see the end at last!  

SO…. Open your life up to healing
Your life will have new meaning
I am sending out so much love with this
God bless, I love you
Everything is a gift
Now go enjoy a life of bliss 💕

The Cancer Logic Diet

    A major reason cancer is so frustratingly difficult to cure is that by the time it can be detected, it is often very advanced, and like all advanced diseases, much more difficult to treat. In a person with advanced cancer, uncontrolled angiogenesis keeps cancer cells growing and allows them to spread.  However, without angiogenesis, cancers can’t grow and become dangerous.

This is why the microscopic cancers that form in our bodies all the time are mostly harmless.  These cancers aren’t even visible on a standard X-ray or body scan.  So,  to effectively prevent cancer,  angiogenesis needs to be brought under control before the tumor can get a foothold. This is where  everyday diet comes into play.


Every day it seems a new diet fad hits the news, often endorsed by a celebrity or TV personality. How can you decide which diet is best for you? There is a variable amount     of research backing each of these diets.  One diet that has been carefully scrutinized in clinical trials is the Mediterranean diet.

As its name implies, the Mediterranean diet is derived from the eating patterns of the people who live on or near the Mediterranean Sea, such as in Greece, Italy and Spain.     The traditional Mediterranean diet includes a high intake

of whole grains, fruits, vegetable, nuts, and olive oil; a moderate intake of fish, poultry    and (low sugar) wine, and a low intake of dairy products, red meat, processed meat and sweets.

Adherence to a Mediterranean diet is associated with not only weight reduction but also    a decreased risk of death from heart disease, cancer and all from all causes, particularly   in individuals who get moderate exercise and avoid smoking.  Both cancer survivors and individuals at risk of cancer may benefit significantly from adhering to a Mediterranean diet in combination with other healthy lifestyle behaviors. With its abundance of fresh fruits and vegetables, summer is the perfect time to make those changes in your diet to convert to a Mediterranean pattern.

Unlike all those diets with fancy names this diet has no name. If it did,  It would be   called it the logical diet,  because it uses logic,  no gimmicks. When I learned cancer  needs methionine to build its protective protein barrier …  that cloak that makes it “invisible” to our immune system?   I learned that the best source of methionine is          animal protein,  I took animal protein out of my diet

Beta Glucans and Cancer

The rapid growth of cancer in healthy individuals can over-activate an individual’s immune system. Beta glucans bind and activate specific innate immune cells including macrophages, antibodies, and natural killer (NK) cells so that it can trigger an immune response. The ability of beta glucans to modify the attack of immune cells on invasive agents supports an efficient and stronger immune response.

Beta glucans are also prime immune cells to recognize complementary immune defense compounds. The antibody antigen response is coupled with beta glucan for a biologically synergistic response to kill cancer cells. The coupling of these 2 defense tools may even be a stronger therapy than chemotherapy or radiation. Furthermore, the ability of beta glucans to work in cooperation with antibody complexes poses no adverse health reactions as do conventional cancer treatments.

Beta glucans effectively stimulate an immune response from T-cells, NK cells, cytokines interleukin (IL) 1 and 2, as well as macrophages.  Research supports the ability of beta –  glucans to reduce the growth rate of cancer cells all while stimulating a stronger immune response to foreign invaders.

Specifically, NK cells are crucial to inhibiting cancer growth and are solely responsible    for detecting and controlling tumors. NK cells seek and destroy tumor growth.  https://thetruthaboutcancer.com/beta-glucans-immunity-fight-cancer/

Dr Gonzalez and Carol Alt …. Cancer Interview
 When I learned that papaya, pineapple and mango have enzymes which help break down that protective protein barrier, I added them to my diet. When I read the UCLA study that showed a healthy immune system can only exist  if you have a healthy gut,        I added probiotics (fermented food) and enzymes (green vege juicing) to my protocol. With estrogen driven cancer. I learned the cruciferous vegetables can be anti-estrogen, so I make sure to eat them. And learned  dandelion is better for liver health then milk thistle with estrogen driven cancers ….so ask your doctor… Etc.
  I was told if someone has cancer they should build up to this one Brand probiotic              which is very effective: https://jet.com/…/1fb8e3e96aaf4d39a6e33ef00242f7d3

  Galectin-3 is also present in various cancers and linked to sugar and cancer spread.   Research suggest that Modified Citrus Pectin (MCP) helps against that and is found in    the peel/zest of a lemon skin. Whereas Dr. Herbert T. Nagasawa states,  Glutathione is         a major antioxidant in the body responsible for maintaining cellular redox homeostasis. Which means it maintains the body pH to normal as- well- as brings oxygen to the cells.

Watermelon has an abundance of glutathione especially in its  green rind try juicing it minus the green skin!!  The rinds, peels, stems, leaves and seeds and many fruits and vegetables can be safely consumed and often contribute valuable nutritional impact       and phytochemicals to your diet.   Can I eat fruit if I have cancer?  YES!!!

Watermelon rinds and seeds are examples. Watermelon rind contains more of the amino acid citrulline than the pink flesh.13 Citrulline is converted to arginine in your kidneys, and this amino acid is important for heart health and maintaining your immune system.

Black watermelon seeds are also edible and actually quite healthy. They contain iron, zinc, protein and fiber.

Furthermore, there is also evidence that shows cancer is linked to inflammation.
 One must be made aware that the COX-2 enzyme is a heavy inflammation promoter     and natural COX-2 inhibitors used to reduce inflammation are resveratrol, quercetin, curcumin, vitamin-C. Omega 3 fatty acids and grape seed extract. And remember also amino acids are the building blocks of protein and proteins and good fat (coconut oil)      are essential to life.  The carbohydrates the body needs can come from protein or fat.        DrAnnWigmore whom cured her owned cancer used Wheatgrass!  0r Dr. Lorraine Day Carrot Juice cancer cure youtube!!   🙂
 Thus if inflammation causes cancer what can one do to prevent inflammation. Seriously what one must do is to remove allergens from your diet, such as, dairy, gluten and sugar.
   Dr. Otto Warburg states that the primary cause of cancer is the fermentation of sugar without oxygen. Cancer uses this sugar as fuel and it generates lactic acid, which in turn creates more acidic blood pH.  Some food sources are food source of lactic acid, such as dairy, bread, processed foods like soy sauce.  The more acidic intercellular cancer cells blood pH is, the more aggressive the cancer.
  Remember:  fasting (not eating food is linked to cancer remission), stopping seizures, decreasing blood glucose, decreasing insulin need et cetera. Starvation produces ketones and research shows that cancer cells have trouble processing ketones and fat for energy to multiply, but healthy cells do not.
Research, suggest that cancer cells can be switched back to healthy cells in the absence of glucose.

Wanna heal FAST?? Don’t!!!
Personally, I do not recommend the long fasts. I don`t care what it is named, called or who is doing it. When you are looking for long term healing, be smart.
Be strong, diligent and persistent, but also be smart.
Jumping on board a long and rigid regime, in desperation for quick results, can be detrimental.

In short, the body is an alchymist.

You have to let go of the old paradigm of though, and look at it from another angle. We are not sick because the body does not get its nutrients ( although it doesn`t). Bare with me: When your cells are bathing in acids, corrosive and degeneratice acids, the number one concern is always to move the lymphatic system, to clean the pipes, to let go of ths shit so to speak, for any healing to start.

The body, when clean, need very little nutrients. It is very eficient, although everything you say about carbs, lipids, to an extent true, iit becomes our mental trap. What we have learned about proteins, about lipids, seems to all be false. All we need to do is to eat ripe amazing fruits and greens, from nature, all raw, and we will never lack one single nutrient.

A balanced diet, as we have been told IS one, does not exist. One simple food is balanced. Every single orange is balanced. perfectly for us to thrive on. This post, however, is about long term fasting, where the detoxification process will kick into a gear very few can handle. The results being binging inbetween, leaving the bowy and the state of emotional health worse off.

I see this all the time.

You might be desperate to get well, and it is tempting to jump on a wagon of restrictions way beyond your emotional and mental capacity.

This results in a jo-jo type of detoxification that might hurt you more than it will benefit your journey.

First of all:
If you are not already filtering, and have daily large bowel movements, you are putting a strain on your organs and glands. A lot of acids are released, circulating your system.

Second of all:
The body will look at this new situation as a crisis, as the mental and emotional preparation might not be in place. By that, I mean that when you are not in a place of fully embracing the experience, you will feel uneasy and might end up even more imbalanced after the fast.

Third of all:
Knowledge is power, and the lack thereof can result in quite the opposite of power. A longer restricted fast requires not only knowing your body but also knowing your weaknesses and emotional standpoint.

Fourth of all:
As a result, more often than not, I see a lot of binging and cravings after ending the fast. hereof the jo-jo statement. Going all in, then out, then in, to then go out again, is confusing, to say the least. the body, the whole system is beyond confused, and the body is going from trying to dig deep, to being hit with a toxic overload from cooked or raw hell.

Fifth of all
The road to amazing optimal health on all levels requires YOU to be able to sustain your journey. By that I mean, you need to be able to go at it for several years. not on and off, only ON: Not that my clients don`t embark on shorter fasts, dry fasts, and other amazing kick ass protocols.
Believe me, they do, AND they thrive and heal doing them.
Long term is the PLAN.
Slow and steady wins the race.

Mindful detoxification also means smart detoxification.

I am about success, not the protocol.
I want you to HEAL, permanently.
I want you to learn and grow into your OWN trust and sovereignty

So my friend.
Keep a steady sustainable pace.
Anything else:
Tiering for the body,
exhausting for YOU.

It is not said without any reason that water is life. Therefore, it is really important that   you drink a large amount of it during the day so that your body can function normally. However,  what happens to your organism in the morning,  that is once you wake up     when you drink a glass of water on an empty stomach?

1. Helps remove the toxins from the body

While we drink water it has a natural effect on digestion. During the night our body recovers, that is it tries to throw out all the toxins. When you drink a glass of it on an empty stomach in the morning you will remove all toxins from the organism.        Moreover, you will feel fresher and you will be healthier.

2. Improves the metabolism

Drinking water on an empty stomach can increase the speed of the metabolism up to   25%. A faster metabolism means a better digestive system. What is more, drinking it    right after waking up cleanses the large intestine.  In that way,  the absorption of the nutritional ingredients is easier.

3. Serves for healthy weight loss

When you drink water on an empty stomach in the morning, your body gets rid of the toxins and the digestion improves. Therefore, you will not feel so hungry and the food cravings will reduce. That will help prevent the concentration of extra weight which is caused by over-eating.

4. Reduces the acids and the digestive problems

Bad digestion contributes to higher acid levels in the stomach. That happens when acid goes back again through the alimentary canal.  However,  when you drink water on the empty stomach those acids dilute, and their bad effects are reduced.

5. Improves the look of the face and the tan

Dehydration results in early wrinkles and deep pores in the skin. However, drinking a glass of water on an empty stomach boosts the blood flow in the skin, which gives it a shiny, healthy look. Furthermore, consuming a lot of water during the day means your body releases the toxins. Therefore, the look of you face and your tan will be improved.

6. Healthy and shiny hair

Apart from dehydration having a bad effect on the skin, it also has a bad effect on the hair growth. Drinking a lot of water nourishes the hair from the inside to the outside, because the lack of water intake can make the hairs fragile and thin. Consuming a glass of water on an empty stomach can have a really positive effect on the quality of your hair.

7. Strengthens the immune system

Consuming water on an empty stomach helps cleanse and balance the lymph system, that is it improves the immunity. The strong immune system will keep you safe from different diseases and will prevent diseases that occur seldom.

It is because of these reasons that drinking water on an empty stomach right after waking up has a lot of benefits. Nevertheless, this is one of the simplest and cheapest options for overall improvement of the quality and way of your life.



Also, while people do lose weight, this is a side effect of removing the toxic and extraneous matter that have been stored within your fat cells. By doing so allowing your body to achieve superior health.  Juice feasting cleanse is not a diet,  it heals, it nourishes, it feasts and regenerates your whole body.  https://rawjuiceguru.com/benefits-2/?v=e4b09f3f8402

It is impossible to eat the high doses of vegetables and fruits that are in our juice feasting cleanse.  Raw Juicing,  will not only,  eliminate the need for munching and chewing high quantities of greens and vegetables,  it also minimizes the body’s digestive effort,  since nutrients are absorbed into blood stream within minutes. Juicing breaks done fibers in  the vegetables, making it easier to abosorb all the nutrients.

Scientists have identified over 5000 different enzymes plus many more that our bodies utilize. Live enzymes are the catalyst for every human function.  They also perform 1000 important life supporting functions. They help repair our DNA help digest food, and help as assimilate the nutrients within food among many more.  Dead processed  and cooked foods have few,  if any,  live enzymes.  Why?  Because enzymes die when they’re heated above 118 degrees. Studies have shows that there is a strong correlation between eating animal protein and the incidence of cancer, heart disease and other illnesses.

With Juice Feasting cleanse its all about the live enzymes, amino acids, minerals and vitamins. Our Raw juice contains lots of fiber because of the juice extraction method we use.  Its a misconception  that Raw Juic e does not contain fiber and varies on the juicer    you use.  Juicing is a nutrient dense way to alkalize body & infuse cells  with high dose phytonutrients. By not eating solid foods u allow body to conserve energy & utilize it to heal u at base of the problem, NOT just the symptom.

Cleansing re-balances and cleans the sludge, mucus and toxins in our bodies so we can adequately absorb nutrients. It balances out our pH scale, letting our bodies be slightly alkaline, which is 7.3 pH level. One of the most important results of giving putting your cells thru juice cleanse is it will help to maintain pH balance of your body. And also has been scientifically proven, you are less prone to disease and other ailments if your body     is slightly alkaline.

Benefits of Our Juice Cleanse:

• Jump-start weight loss and cleanse your body

A cure results when the energy blockage is released on the deepest possible level. When the emotional & energy blockage is released, the acute healing mechanism will eliminate the blockage through the appropriate channel of elimination. When the blockage on the emotional level becomes acute, it may be experienced as anger, resentment, bitterness.

The same blockage becoming acute on the physical level may be expressed as fever or an angry, red, raw rash. Fever, rash, pain, pimples, boils, mucous discharge, pus, loose stool, constipation, chills, cough, anger, grief, depression, sadness, etc. are expressions of acute healing.  As Dr. Kuhne stated,  “Dis-ease is the presence of foreign matter in the body.”

Cancer Survivors (Finalized.)

“Heal and transform the soul first, than healing and transformation of every aspect             of your life will follow!”          ~Dr. & Master Zhi Gang Sha~

As you scroll through the first 50 blogs in this website you come to look at and                  old problem in a new way.

Given the vast size of the Universe all problems are small. Take a look around you someone always has it worse off.  A shallow outlook may have gave you cancer and              a shallow outlook will make it tougher for you to heal.   Don’t be offended by that  comment this blog explains what I mean.

Our brains struggle to comprehend how big the universe is because everything here on Earth, and even the Earth itself, is very small when compared to the immense scale of the universe.

So let’s think about it a different way, using something we see and interact with every day… .

While we imagine light to be instantaneous, photons of light actually take time to travel from one side of the room to the other.

In the time it took you to read this far, a photon of light leaving the Sun has travelled about 10 million kilometres – equivalent to travelling around the Earth 250 times.

Light that leaves our second nearest star, Proxima Centauri, takes just over four years to reach Earth and so we can define it as four light years away.

As such, if you were to look at Proxima Centauri, you would not be seeing the star as it is right now, but how it ‘was’ 4 years ago!

We see all things in the universe as they were in the past, whether they’re on the other side of the room or the other side of the galaxy.

To take this concept further, the nearest large galaxy to us is Andromeda which is so big and close that you can see it in the night sky with your .

What you’re really seeing is 1,000’s of billions of stars in a configuration similar to our Milky Way.  However,  all of those stars are about 2.5 million light years away,  which means you’re seeing Andromeda as it was 2.5 million years ago.

Read more at: https://phys.org/news/2015-10-big-universe.html#jCp  

The whole universe is littered with galaxies just like the Milky Way and Andromeda,      and using our most powerful telescopes we can see light from galaxies that has taken  more than 13 billion years to reach us!

Since a photon of light left one of these galaxies, life sparked into existence and evolved. Dinosaurs ruled the Earth.  Humans THEN appeared, developed tools, art, science and technology, built the Hubble Space Telescope, put it into orbit and finally stopped that poor photon on its 13 billion year journey!

The universe is about 13.8 billion years old, so any light we see has to have been travelling for 13.8 billion years or less – we call this the ‘observable universe’.

However, the distance to the edge of the observable universe is about 46 billion light years because the universe is expanding all of the time.

Imagine that a photon of light is emitted from a point on the edge of our .

While that has been travelling through space, the universe has expanded. We have moved away from the point where the light was emitted, and it has moved away from us!

Though the light might have only travelled for 13.8 billion years, the distance from us to the point it came from is, at present, 46 billion light years!

So how big is our ? Well we don’t really know, but it’s big. So big that even light hasn’t had time to cross it in nearly 14 billion years! And it’s still getting bigger all of the .

Never look back on past mistakes or experiences the universe expands and moves forward so don’t roll against the tide… we are hard wired to move ahead with excitement in motion.

If you were to grab the probes on a multimeter on the DC voltage setting, there always appears some reading of some number of millivolts. I just tried this and got a relatively stable reading of about 96mV.  I realize this is very little,  barely a hundredth of a volt,       but is my body actually generating this power? Is current actually flowing?

First of all, you seem to be confusing voltage with current. Voltage is the measurement of the difference of the electric potential strength at two different locations, which is directly related to the electric field strength. Current is the movement of electrical charge from one place to the next. Although a voltage can drive a current, you can have a voltage without a current if there is no conductive path along which the current can flow.

My point is that even though your two hands are normally at different voltages, this does not imply that electrical current is continuously flowing through the air from one hand to the other, nor does it imply  “our” body is continuously “generating power” or consuming energy in order to maintain this voltage beyond the energy needed to internally run your body.

A voltmeter used correctly measures voltage, not current. Yes, a small amount of current must flow through a traditional voltmeter in order for it to work, but this does not mean that the number displayed on a voltmeter in anyway indicates that current flows through the air between the two locations when the voltmeter is removed.

In summary, yes, your hands naturally have a very small electrical potential difference,  but the air is a good insulator at low voltages,  so effectively zero current flows through    the air between your hands  (a minuscule electrical current does flow through the air all  the time due to the ionization of air by background radiation, but that is a different topic).

Note that different points on your body naturally have different voltages, and this voltage changes in cycles because of the electrical activity of your heart as it beats.

A medical electrocardiogram (EKG) consists of placing electrodes at various points on your body and measuring the voltage at those points in order to asses the electrical activity of your heart.

People were talking about resonant frequencies for body parts and/or the entire body    and someone was looking for a chart, not sure if this is the one from NASA which they   had mentioned but it appears to follow the numbers I am seeing in various research             I can find out there .


The Effects Of Negative Emotions On Our Health 🙁

Can Hope Heal?

Related image

Hope and Silence gives birth to nothing,                                                                         however,  Hope Verbalized gives Birth to Faith.                                                                 Faith  and  Persistence  is  the Fabric of  Creation !

The brain  plays  a crucial role  in  controlling  the  body.  However,  is  mind powerful      enough to overcome illnesses such as cancer?  This question not easily answered but new observations suggest  that perhaps hope can help person heal using endorphins produced pituitary gland and then sent nervous system block messages of pain. idea wishful thinking illness exciting, alone fight off major sicknesses.    One has to find balance ☮️ 

Bravo 👏🏻. Humility and belief, is two of the main ingredients to self awareness and awakening. I have come to laugh and feel humbled every time I see How much I still have to learn. Without humility I would be an an annoying know it all 😜
A positive outlook during a time of suffering particularly during an illness can help one heal faster. It is often believed that a person can fight disease with their mind. The thought that we can combat sickness with our attitude is not an idea that has much scientific proof. Until recently little scientific research was available on the effects of hope in the healing process. However recent studies show significant evidence is available which suggests that hope may have an effect on the body during illness.

On the surface there is practical evidence that a hopeful outlook can help a person heal. Someone who believes that he or she might eventually get better when afflicted with a life threatening disease is more likely to take care of his or her body. This approach of taking care of ones body with the hope that it might heal can keep a person alive until better methods of treating her specific disease come along. This type of hope is believed to have helped some HIV patients who were first diagnoses with the virus. As these individuals took various steps to stay as healthy as possible, scientific advances made living for a longer period of time with the virus viable. While this observation is interesting this type of hope does not actually help a person heal.

As Abraham Verghese writes in his article “The Way We Live Now: Hope and Clarity” there is a belief in our society that with hope and a positive outlook one can fight off a disease such as cancer. He writes “If you accept the war metaphor… then a diagnosis of cancer becomes a call to arms, an induction into an army and it goes without saying that  in such a war optimism is essential. Memoirs of Cancer Centers state this as a creed: a ‘positive attitude’ influences survival” .

He goes on to argue that this belief is not backed by substantial scientific research and therefore adds pressure to patients to always appear positive when the realities of their situations warrant some realistic grief. Verghese cites a study from Australia, which suggests a positive attitude or hope did not have a substantial effect on the survival rate or health of lung cancer patients participating. He uses this study to show that hope cannot make a sick person magically better.

Despite Verghese’s points many scientists, patients, and medical doctors believe that a hopeful outlook can help a sick person overcome a serious illness. These proponents of the power of hope argue that a person who believes he will get better produces endorphins and enkephalins released by the pituitary gland, which can intercept the feelings of pain in the body from reaching the brain (Groopman, p.170).
The research of Jerome Groopman M.D. is some of the most conclusive about the effects hope has on sick people. His research attempts to show the way the brain aids the body’s healing and coping ability in sick peoples’ bodies. Manipulations of the nervous system sparked by the emotions associated with hope begin a chain of events, which may help sick people recover.

Jerome Groopman, author of “The Anatomy of Hope”, wrote: “Belief and expectation — the key elements of hope — can block pain by releasing the brain’s endorphins and enkephalins, mimicking the effects of morphine. In some cases, hope can also have important effects on fundamental physiological processes like respiration, circulation and motor function.” Groopman studies have shown that having hope positively impacts the nervous system, which then positively affects the whole body, giving it a higher chance of recovery. (CNN)

More interesting research on the topic came from Duane Bidwell who studied hope in kids with chronic illnesses. His studies show that there are five main modes of hope:

  • “Maintaining identity by continuing to participate in activities and relationships that help patients retain a sense of self outside diagnosis and treatment.
  • Realizing community through formal and informal connections that help patients understand they are not alone in living with disease. This community is made real through conversation, visitation, consultation and participation in daily activities.
  • Claiming power by taking an active role in treatment by setting goals, self-advocating, monitoring and maintaining one’s own health.
  • Attending to spirituality, activated through religious, spiritual and other contemplative practices.
  • Developing wisdom, which involves both gaining pragmatic, medical wisdom derived from one’s own experience and finding ways to “give back.” (CNN)

According to Bidwell’s research, any of these modes of hope will help the healing process. This study connects to what I said earlier about those who believe that they are going to get better: they actively participate in their lives, do everything to stay as healthy as possible, they try to keep connections with those around them, and have as much fun as they can while laying in the hospital. These people, the ones with hope, although it’s not 100% scientifically are the ones that keep pushing and reach recovery.


Groopman uses the placebo effect to help explaining how the nervous system, with the help of hope, combats pain (Groopman, p.175-190). The placebo effect is widely accepted by medical doctors and scientists. It shows that in some cases a placebo or fake cure can satisfy patients and make them believe they are cured when in reality no medicine, surgery, or treatment has been given. For example a doctor who prescribes a sugar pill or pill containing no medicine to a group of patients suffering from an illness, without telling them that the drug is a placebo, will have some patients who report their symptoms have faded. It may seem that theses particular patients were not really that sick to begin with, but the placebo effect is actually thought to be a result of “belief and expectancy.”

The patient believes and expects the medication to cure her ailments. Belief is encouraged as the patient trusts that a doctor will be able to identify an illness and then find the appropriate medication to treat the problem. The patient then expects the treatment to work. This combination of belief and expectation can sometimes be enough to help a person recover form their symptoms.

Groopman argues that the same type of belief that is present with the placebo effect is similar to that created by a hopeful outlook. Within the body the theory that hope can heal is based within the nervous system. When a person is hopeful their body produces endorphins and enkephalins. These endorphins and enkephalins are chemicals, which alter the messages sent to the brain through the nervous system. The types of endorphins believed to be produced in a hopeful person’s pituitary gland include the beta-endorphin, which is thought to improve ones mood by blocking pain.

According to Groopman’s study in a hopeful patient’s body the endorphins prevent the brain from recognizing the message of pain sent through the nervous system. Without the message of pain the body is able to exert the energy necessary to recuperate from an illness. The endorphins and enkephalins are also thought to help improve the immune system. If the body is not preoccupied with the pain of an illness it might be able to fight off a life threatening disease.

The production of endorphins and enkephalins alone cannot explain the positive effects of hope on ill people. A hopeful person benefits from a positive outlook because his body is less likely to produce the chemicals, which can prolong an illness and are associated with a negative outlook. To explain how hopelessness can prolong an illness Groopman looks to the effects of Substance P and cholecystokinin also know as CKK(Groopman, p176).

These chemicals, when released in the central nervous system have the opposite effect of endorphins and enkephalins. CKK helps send the messages of pain to the brain thus

increasing ones hopelessness and suffering. Groopman argues  these two chemicals are produced when a person is constantly reminded of an illness and the grave circumstances of their infirmity.  This is common  in patients  who have serious illness with low survival rates. The pain creates a cycle, which is hard to escape. Groopman argues that this cycle can be broken with hope.

If we accept the theory that hope sends on endorphins and enkephalins that act in a fashion similar to pain killers blocking pain from the brain we are left with the fact that some very hopeful patients never heal and that some very negative thinkers survive the worst of illnesses. The answer to this problem is that while hope may help a person survive or at least feel better it is not a cure for disease. It is simply another tool that can help on the way to recovery.

Hopefully more research will come along to redefine and improve on Groopman’s observations but for the time being Verghese’s belief that hope is not a cure remains. Positive thinking and the mind do not have to power to completely overcome pain. However thanks to Groopman we now know that our minds and bodies together have the ability to protect us from certain pains, which could eventually help seriously ill people heal.

Certified Emotion Code practitioner (Mis-spoken on the beginning of the video as a “Body Code” certified practitioner), Tim Janakos (in Japan) takes a live call from Natasha P (in Southern California) to see if there are any trapped emotions contributing to her Vitiligo, Thyroid and Adrenal problems or her Insomnia (Sleep Walking), weight gain symptoms and Fibromyalgia.

Working with the Emotion Code he first found that there were 7 trapped emotions of Overwhelm, and 1 trapped emotion of Worry from specific events in her life that were contributing to all or some of these problems.

After that he used the Body Code Healing System to discover that some contributing factors to her Sleepwalking and Insomnia problem were she had fungus in her body along with having blockages in her Heart Chakra, Spleen and Gallbladder Meridians, imbalances in her Pituitary Gland, and radiation from Chernobyl fallout from when she lived in Greece.

Tim was able to correct these imbalances by releasing the fungus and the radiation ,from her body and also by reconnecting her brain with her body and reconnecting her body with her brain (which wasn’t fully connected energetically). Also, he discovered her magnetic field was deficient, which he tried to remedy with sending magnetic energy throughout her meridians, but recommended she get more grounded with the earth,by putting her feet in sand at the beach or walking in a park barefoot on the grass.

We will try do a follow up call in about a week to see if any the things Tim did for her had noticeable effect on any of her symptoms. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g7ch1n3MSs0&t=827s 

Also Teal Swan explains that your feeling body (what most people call the emotional body) is the truth of who you are at a feeling level. This layer of you contains the imprints of the emotional aspect of your memories as well as your current emotional state. It is the bridge between your physical self and our thinking self. The feeling body interprets and translates the thoughts projected forth by your eternal consciousness perspective and also by your human perspective into feeling states or “feeling signatures”.
  This translation is the first step that takes place in order to enable a being to have a first hand experience of a thought. This enables the thought to be actualized instead of remain abstract. This actualization of thoughts enables us to learn and gain awareness better and faster and this in turn enables personal and universal expansion. Because of the emotional body, man is able to experience their own thoughts.
The thoughts are converted into feeling impressions. The physical body interprets those feeling impressions and as if translating the message, converts those feeling states into the neuropeptides and hormones that cause the physical reactions in our body that we call “emotions”; emotions ranging from fear, anger and stress to love, compassion and happiness.
The feeling body is not an actual body. It is etheric in nature. But it can be understood and visualized symbolically like an actual body (in fact it often is both out of body and in dream time). You can ask to be shown the visual representation of your feeling body in meditation of you like. With practice, you will no longer need to facilitate an altered state of consciousness like meditation to switch your perspective in order to see the layer of a person’s emotional/feeling body at will. You could observe it as energy, or you could observe it as the representation of an actual body.
In the second half of this episode, Teal explains how to facilitate “integration” of the emotional body.

Healing Pancreatic Cancer Naturally


Hey friend, came across this article on one of the sites I follow and wanted to share it with you. This is in not intended to be a replacement for something your doctor would advise. Always consult your physician.

Chris Wark (Chris Beat Cancer)!!!

I am determined to beat you over the head with encouraging, inspiring stories of healing. So here’s yet another awesome interview from the Healing Strong conference with my friend Kay Hahn.

Chemo nearly killed her, but nutrition is working! She is healing her pancreatic cancer.

This was a sweet, wonderful interview. Meeting people face to face that you’ve unknowingly helped in their healing journey can be a bit emotional. So yeah, I got a little choked up at the end. (Shocker)

Here is Kay’s story in her own words…

Our lives are a series of ups and downs. And when things are kind of just going along uneventful, I always wonder what is going to happen next? (good or bad) I can remember at the end of the year 2011, wondering what the year 2012 would hold for us. I did not expect what came next.

The first Sunday in January, 2012, my pastor, Max Lucado, began a sermon series entitled, “You’ll Get Through This”. I immediately had my defenses up and thought something must be coming…

Two weeks later I was in the ER diagnosed with a rare form of pancreatic cancer. It was a type of cancer the doctors rarely see and no one knew exactly how to treat it.

I had nine tumors in all. One on my liver, 7 floating in my abdomen and one on the 1/3      of a pancreas I had left.  (2/3 of my pancreas was removed with my spleen and a volley   ball sized tumor in 2006.)

The doctors were not optimistic and pretty well let me know we had to be aggressive in trying to treat this, I didn’t have time to waste. Even though the first doctor was ready for me to pick out my casket, I confidently told him “No, it was going to be ok.” I remember feeling that God was going to heal me. It was a surreal moment to have this diagnosis. It had been one of the great fears of my life. God was allowing me to face it head on and to know that HE is greater than my biggest fear.

My husband stayed with me in the hospital all night and prayed over me. He had two visions of my healing by God’s hand. Through the next year he would hold on to those visions no matter what I was going through. I had a strong belief in God answering my prayer for healing. That trust. Belief. Has to be to the very core. No doubts. I had friends all over the world praying for me. I wanted Him to get the glory for all of it.

I started searching on the internet for cancer cures. I found several. The first 2 were The Gerson Therapy and Renae Caisse’s Essiac Tea. However, since I knew no one who had experienced these and like everyone else,  all my life we are informed and led to believe that doctor’s know best and most cancer is “ treated” with chemotherapy, I followed my doctor’s direction. February 1, the day before my 50th birthday, I started chemotherapy.

All the while, there were people praying for me all over the world. ( We lived 13 years in the Middle East) I believed prayer was going to make a huge difference. I believed being thankful and believing God was going to make a huge difference. I trusted Him. He sent me little God winks along the way. I wish I had wrote them all down now, so I could remember them because they were often.

For example, the day I was at MD Anderson Cancer Hospital in Houston. I was doing my usual sitting in the waiting room praying for all those multitudes …who were sick around me. But I felt like I wasn’t quite as close to Him on this day. I prayed, “God where are you today”. Then we got called in, weighed and a CHRISTIAN nurse ushered us into an exam room to wait. I looked up and there on a white board, the only thing written was an arrow pointing up with the words, “Trust Him”.

From Feb-Nov 2012, I went through 7 kinds of chemo, 3 oncologists, and one clinical trial, with absolutely no positive results. I had just about every bad side effect you could possibly get from chemotherapy and still be alive, I almost wasn’t during the month of May.

All during that year, God kept bringing into my life the same message of natural healing via various avenues. I kept pushing them aside, not sure as to what to believe. After being divinely led, in September I began taking ChlorellaSpirulina anVitamineral Green all by Healthforce.

Within two and half weeks, I had peach fuzz on my head—my hair was growing back in  the middle of chemo! My blood work was good…I felt great! My doctor wanted to know what I was doing and would always check under my wig for the progress of new hair growth.

By the end of November, I was in a lot of bone pain due to destroyed bone marrow. I had had enough. I stopped the clinical study. Along about that time, boxes started arriving at my house from a friend overseas. A juicer. Hundreds of dollars in supplements. A coffee enema Kit. Fifteen pounds of organic coffee. And lots of letters of instructions. She had a friend heal from cancer using the Gerson Therapy and wanted me to do it as well.

The boxes sat there for two months before I actually began using them, I also bought the   Gerson book and started the protocol. Two and a half weeks later, cat scans showed a 20% reduction in the cancer! My doctor and all the nurses were so excited. Everyone wanted to know what I was doing.

My doctor told me to keep doing what I was doing and come back in three months. Along about this time,  my best friend from WA also called me one day and said hurry you have to turn on the tv. There is a guy on Rikki Lake who has healed naturally from cancer. It was Chris. Since then, his web page and all of his wonderful information has been a companion of mine. And I recommend it to everyone.

I kept eating vegetarian foods, cut out sugar, salt, meat and dairy, took lots of supplements, detoxed with coffee enemas several times a day and drank 10 fresh  vegetable and fruit juices each day. I went back in three months, for more CT scans.

Again, there was a reduction in the cancer. And that was after year’s worth of chemo       that did nothing but destroy my body. My doctor was very impressed and told me to     keep doing what  I was doing  and  come back in six months.  I am due to go back in December of this year.

I started out using a Juiceman Juicer that my friend sent to me. Later I bought an     Omega Vert Juicer and that is what I currently use. I hope to upgrade…. even more          as time goes.  I use Gerson recipes for my juices.

You can find these on www.Gerson.com.

I drink 3 green juices a day, 3 carrot and 4 carrot/apple juices.

Three to four times a day I take a “coffee break”, our name for the coffee enema time.

I usually do one first thing in the morning, one or two midday and then one in the evening. I never thought I could do a coffee enema,  especially  on  a regular basis. But after the first two, it became easier and more routine. My friend gave me some good advice about how to perform these comfortably. One piece of advice!!  I always use was to lie in the bathtub in a few inches of warm water. It is very relaxing. The coffee enemas make me feel better. Then my daughter prepares a days worth of supplements for me in little cups that I take once each hour for nine hours.

Some of the books I read while traveling this journey were:

The China Study by T. Colin Campbell,

A Cancer Battle Plan by Anne E. and David J. Frahm,

God’s Way to Ultimate Health and The Hallelujah Diet both by George H. Malkmus,

The Gerson Therapy and Healing the Gerson Way both by Charlotte Gerson,

Forks Over Knives: The Plant-Based Way to Health by Gene Stone.

I am currently reading Cancer: Step Outside the Box by Ty Bollinger. This is an awesome book, loaded full of information!

I have also been changing the way I eat. Cutting out meat, sugar, salt, dairy, and processed foods.  Trying to eat all vegetarian.  This has been challenging at times.  But, I am learning to cook this way more and more. I found two great websites with wonderful vegetarian and raw foods recipes on it. One is www.ohsheglows.com and www.girlonraw.com These have been very helpful. Great tasting recipes!

Taking care of me, keeping on my protocol takes a lot of work and attention. But I feel blessed to be using what God provided for me to heal and not sitting in a chair somewhere letting liquid fire run through my veins as it destroys my body. These are choices we have to make. I choose life!

I feel wonderful. I have a full head of soft new hair. I still keep up my every day health protocol. And I tell everyone I can about healing the way God intended with the foods, plants and herbs He has provided for us since the Garden of Eden.  I have also learned       a lot about so many people healing from cancer  as well as other degenerative diseases including heart disease and lots of others, through eating vegetarian and juicing.

This is the natural way that God provided for us to heal. He provided for redemption         of our souls and our bodies clear back in the Garden. He knew these diseases would come and He provided a way out. He always takes care of us and provides for us. The herbs and vegetables that are nutritious to our bodies were given to us to take care of ourselves. We don’t need to give ourselves chemicals to try to heal…that doesn’t even make sense. Our bodies were made to heal themselves.

Through this journey, I have learned so much about How very much God loves us and takes care of us and how much we can trust him for all things. I also learned a tremendous amount about gratitude and being thankful. It is important to be thankful even as you pray for a miracle and a healing. Trust Him with a grateful heart  and as you are praying, don’t doubt. I have to say, I would never have wanted to go through the rest of my life if I had not gone through this past year and a half.

Here are a list of some of my supplements I take large doses every day:

Healthforce brand Chlorella anSpirulina and 10,000 mg per day of Truly Natural Vitamin C. These are  tremendous sources for revitalizing new cells, detoxing,  providing  tons of nutrients, vitamins and minerals. I encourage you to go on their website and read about these products.

Essiac Tea from Essiac Canada Intl. Basically because I like having the pill form and             I wanted the original formula.

CuraminCuramed, and Tri Iodine from Terry Naturally support many organs, the immune system, and protects cells from oxidative stress and free radicals. Curamed         has a high concentrate of Turmeric which cancer patients should be taking.

IP6 Gold for immune support

Zymactive Double Strength Proteolytic Enzymes. ALL CANCER PATIENTS SHOULD TAKE proteolytic enzymes. If you have cancer at all it is because your immune system        is broken and your pancreas is sick.

Potassium powder and Key Glands liver from www.thekeycompanyusa.com

I take zinc, a multi-vitamin, Ubiquinol (strong CoQ10), a probiotic, zinc and a few     natural things for my diabetes.

If you would like more specifics you can email me at hopeinthegarden (at) gmail.com

I have had so many people calling and sending messages to want to talk to me and get information, that I had to start a blog. You can keep up with me at www.kayshopeforcancer.blogspot.com.

Thank you Chris, for allowing me to share my story.


January 2014 Update:
Hi Chris, I just wanted to tell you the good news. In Dec. 2012 my cancer markers were well over 400, in June last year they were over 200. In Dec. 2013 my doctor never even checked my markers, he just wanted me out of there. I had the cancer marker blood work done on Friday and received the results today, they are 48!!!!. I know its still not below 35 but so much better than over 400!  I am so grateful and excited!!! Thank you so much for talking to me for a while in December. It meant a lot. I had several bits of bad news in December and you truly helped me get refocused on my precious Lord who heals and takes care of me always in every way. I had grown so close to him in my walk and was learning and growing. Strong holds were being broken down in my life and then…it is awful how fast you can take your eyes off of him and fall into the water.  You’re so sweet. And I love your heart and all that you do for “the cause”. I continually keep you in prayer and this whole mission of getting the truth out so others can be well. Oh, and please put some of your recipes in your book. Hope all is well with you and your family.
Love and blessings.

Make use of this information to hype up your very own detoxification! Start now!

The detoxification process can also take in the form of a juice fast.  Here at FitLife.TV,  we recommend people to try the Alpha Reset (AR)The Alpha Reset is a 5 Day Juice Fast. Its part of the Juice with Drew System.

This is the first step in your detoxification process. If you are just starting out with juicing, do not jump right into a juice fast right away.

Just try 1 juice per day along with the rest of your nutrition and see how your body responds.  If  your body responds well to juicing, then ramp up the number of juices        per day. These healthy, nutrient-dense juices can replace that coffee you reach for in     the morning or that soda in the afternoon. Here are some of our followers that have   tried the Alpha Reset!

The Human Energy Field

                               Image result for human energy field science

This past week I had another unique treatment with The Oracle Healer April Fontana and  from Santa Monica to my home in OHIO via phone.  Let me tell you what April does from  a far  is nothing short of amazing.  April which was initially startling  was when she stated what  you have in your knees is disgusting.  What  were  you  doing  Ken ….  eating white cheese ….which is what I did the night before.

Within 10 minutes my pain had subsided and April suggested 4 supplements I should be taking for a thinning cartilage in my left hip. This session combined with the one I had a year and a half ago when April relieved my sinus and allergies giving greater oxygen into the brain. Since then, I have noticed and improved energy level and I am a firm believer    in distant healing as April taught me the importance of energy in healing.
How to See Energy in the Air. Learn a simple technique will have you actually       seeing energy that makes up the world around you within minutes. https://www.pinterest.com/pin/507569820478891652/ 
Energy defined is that second wind you achieve from running/ jogging or the excelerated feeling you achieve after riding a bicycle.

Recently I have come to the conclusion,  quite decisively,  that the character of our life       is not fully determined by our genes or heredity.  Rather the controlling influence on the character of our life is determined by signals from the environment – internal and external.

The human energy field.

It has long been known that activities of cells and tissues generate electrical fields that can be detected on the skin surface. But the laws of physics demand that any electrical current generates a corresponding magnetic field in the surrounding space. Since these fields were too tiny to detect, biologists assumed they could have no physiological significance.

 Till the recent decades, biologists focused on the physical signals like hormones, enzymes etc. The subtle energy signals like light, heat, sound etc became a subject of research much later. 
Fortunately, in this world of ours, there are people who like to throw the spanner in the works. They do not allow things to be complacent. I dare say that because of some such people we are compelled to dig deeper and come up with revelations which  shatter previously held set of belief.
It has been suggested, since long, that an energy field exists around all things. Although this was considered as quackery, mainly because it could not be explained the evolution of quantum theory in the early 20th century gave an explanation to this energy field.
In a few decades scientists have gone from a conviction that there is no such thing as an energy field around the human body, to an absolute certainty that it exists.Moreover, we have begun to understand the roles of energy fields in health and disease. Most people are simply not aware of this research, and persist in the attitude that there is no logical basis for energy healing. 

The main reason for the change in outlook is that sensitive instruments have been developed that can detect the minute energy fields around the human body. Of particular importance is the SQUID (Superconducting Quantum Interference Device).
 This magnetometer which is capable of detecting tiny bio-magnetic fields associated      with physiological activities in the body. This is the same field that sensitive individuals have been describing for thousands of years, but that scientists have ignored because there was no objective way to measure it.

When one is healthy you have that sensation in your skin that is sensitive to the touch !!!

It has long been known that activities of cells and tissues generate electrical fields that can be detected on the skin surface. But the laws of physics demand that any electrical current generates a corresponding magnetic field in the surrounding space. Since these fields were too tiny to detect, biologists assumed they could have no physiological significance.
In the 1920’s and 1930’s, a distinguished researcher at Yale University School of Medicine, Harold Saxon Burr, suggested that diseases could be detected in the energy field of the body before physical symptoms appear. Moreover, Burr was convinced that diseases could be prevented by altering the energy field.
These concepts were ahead of their time, but are now being confirmed in medical research laboratories around the world.  Scientists are using SQUID instruments  to map the ways diseases – alter biomagnetic  fields around the body. Others are applying pulsating magnetic fields to stimulate healing. Again, sensitive individuals have been describing these phenomena for a long time, but there was no logical explanation of how it could happen.
This picture began to change in 1963. Gerhard Baule and Richard McFee of the Department of Electrical Engineering, Syracuse University, Syracuse, NY detected the bio-magnetic field projected from the human heart. They used two coils, each with 2 million turns of wire, connected to a sensitive amplifier.
In 1970, David Cohen of MIT, using a SQUID magnetometer, confirmed the heart measurements. By 1972, Cohen had improved the sensitivity of his instrument, enabling him to measure magnetic fields around the head produced by brain activities.
Subsequently, it has been discovered that all tissues and organs produce specific magnetic pulsations, which have come to be known as bio-magnetic fields. The traditional electrical recordings, such as the electrocardiogram and electroencephalogram, are now being complemented by bio-magnetic recordings, called magneto-cardiograms and magneto-encephalograms. For various reasons, mapping the magnetic fields in the space around the body often provides a more accurate indication of physiology and pathology than traditional electrical measurements. Pathology alters the biomagnetic field!!!!

What is therapeutic touch?

Therapeutic touch uses a practice called “laying on of hands” to correct or balance energy fields. Despite the use of the word “touch,” the hands usually hover over the body and do not physically touch it.

Therapeutic touch is based on the theory that the body, mind, and emotions form a complex energy field. According to therapeutic touch, good health is an indication of a balanced energy field, while illness represents imbalance. Studies suggest that therapeutic touch may help heal wounds, reduce pain, and lessen anxiety.

What is the energy field?

Although scientists differ on the nature and relevance of the human energy field, the concept of an energy field is also a part of other types of healing. In the ancient medical systems of India and China, the energy field is described as life energy. It exists throughout the body, and is responsible for maintaining normal physiological, psychological, and spiritual functions. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, this energy is called qi (pronounced “chee”). In India’s ayurvedic medicine, it is called prana.

How does therapeutic touch work?

Scientists are not certain how therapeutic touch works, however, they have two theories:

One theory is that the pain associated with a physically or emotionally painful experience, such as infection, injury, or a difficult relationship, remains in the body’s cells. The pain stored in the cells is disruptive, and prevents some cells from working properly with other cells in the body. This causes disease. Practitioners believe therapeutic touch promotes health by restoring communication between cells.

The other theory is based on the principles of quantum physics. As blood, which contains iron, circulates in our bodies, it produces an electromagnetic field. According to this theory, at one time we could all easily see this field, called an aura, but now only certain people, such as those who practice therapeutic touch, develop this ability.

More generally, therapeutic touch is based on the idea that good health requires a balanced flow of life energy. Practitioners of therapeutic touch say they sense your energy through their hands and then send healthy energy back to you. When receiving therapeutic touch, people usually feel warmth, relaxation, and pain relief. The practitioner describes your energy as hot or cold, active or passive, blocked, or free.

There are 8 general regions of the body where energy is sensed, the head, throat, heart, stomach, lower abdomen, sacral region, knees, and feet. Ultimately, the person who receives therapeutic touch is the healer. The practitioner simply allows your body’s own healing mechanisms to come out. The role of the practitioner is to help this process.

What should I expect on my first visit?

Before the session begins, the therapist will ask you to sit or lie down. You don’t need to undress. Sessions can be broken down into four steps:

  1. Centering. The therapist becomes “centered” by using breathing, imagery, and meditation to achieve an altered state of consciousness for herself.
  2. Assessment. The therapist holds her hands 2 to 4 inches away from your body while moving from your head to your feet. She does this to assess the energy field around your body. Therapists often describe feelings of warmth, coolness, static, and tingling over the areas of energy “congestion” or “blockage.”
  3. Intervention. Once the therapist locates a congested or blocked area, she will move her hands in a rhythmic motion, starting at the top of the blocked area and moving down and away from your body. This action, known as unruffling, is repeated until the therapist no longer senses congestion or until you begin to feel relief. The therapist will also visualize and transmit life energy to specific areas of your body, also intended to correct imbalances.
  4. Evaluation/Closure. Once you have had a few minutes to relax, the therapist will ask how you feel. The therapist may recheck your energy field to make sure they did not overlook any blockages.

What is therapeutic touch good for?

Most studies indicate that therapeutic touch can relieve tension headaches and reduce pain, such as pain associated with burns, osteoarthritis, or following surgery. It may also speed wound healing and improve function in those with arthritis. In fact, studies show that therapeutic touch stimulates cell growth.

Therapeutic touch also promotes relaxation. Cancer, heart disease, and burn patients have reported that therapeutic touch significantly reduces their anxiety. Generally, the deep relaxation associated with therapeutic touch reduces stress, lowers blood pressure, and improves breathing. Being relaxed may also help lower cholesterol levels and improve immune and bowel functions. Difficult pregnancies may also be made a little easier with the help of therapeutic touch.

Together with medical treatment, therapeutic touch can help with many additional conditions, including:

  • Fibromyalgia
  • Sleep apnea
  • Restless leg syndrome, a disorder that causes insomnia
  • Allergies
  • Bronchitis
  • Addictions
  • Lupus
  • Alzheimer’s disease and, possibly, other forms of dementia
  • Chronic pain

Some people say that they feel emotional and spiritual changes after receiving therapeutic touch. These may include greater self-confidence, self-control, and self-understanding.

There is still controversy, however, as to whether the healing power of therapeutic touch has anything to do with the “laying on of hands.” Critics suggest that the healing observed after therapeutic touch may be the result of the relaxing nature of the therapy itself and not the energy transfer between the therapist’s hands and the person’s body.

Is there anything I should watch out for?

You may feel thirsty, lightheaded, and need to urinate. Lightheadedness generally lasts for 15 minutes after a session, but you may feel thirsty for days. According to some practitioners, if you were flooded with too much energy you might feel increased pain and be irritable, restless, anxious, or even nauseated. Some say that therapeutic touch may also make fevers and active inflammation worse, so it may be best not to have it done when you have either a fever or active inflammation, such as a swollen joint from arthritis. Some practitioners also believe it should not be done on areas of the body where there is cancer.

Some therapeutic touch practitioners recommend that children, the elderly, and very sick people be treated for only a short time. Although there is no actual touching involved, talk with your practitioner about what to expect from a session, particularly if you have been physically or sexually abused in your past.

To study the projection of energy from the hands of therapists, scientists must first recognize that there are huge individual  differences between people. Repeated practice of various techniques can enhance the effect.

There are logical neurophysiological and biophysical explanations for the roles of practice and intention.  It would be interesting to use these detection techniques to measure the effect of a Reiki attunement on the strength and frequency of biomagnetic energies coming from the hands and also to measure how theraputic frequencies may change when treating various conditions in the body.]

It is not widely understood that “brain waves” are not confined to the brain, but actually spread throughout the body via the perineural system, the connective tissue sheathes surrounding all of the nerves. Dr. Robert O. Becker has described how this system, more than any other, regulates injury repair processes throughout the body. Hence the entire nervous system acts as an “antenna” for projecting the biomagnetic pulsations that begin in the brain, specifically in the thalamus.

Moreover, waves that begin as relatively weak pulsations in the brain appear to gather strength as they flow along the peripheral nerves and into the hands. The mechanism of this amplification probably involves the perineural system and the other connective tissue systems, such as the fascia that are intimately associated with it.


In this brief summary, I have shown how some of the experiences of energy therapists have a basis in biology and physics. After centuries of neglect, energetic therapies can take their appropriate place in clinical medicine. The great discoveries of biologists and of sensitive bodyworkers are being integrated to give us a deeper understanding of life, disease, and healing. Science cannot take away the ultimate mystery of life, nor can it detract from the spiritual componet of healing. We believe that research on the energy therapies can lead to much a more complete understanding of life, desease, and healing.

Note: One day in the late 1980s, a therapeutic touch practitioner walked into the laboratory of Dr. John Zimmerman at the University of Colorado School of Medicine.      Dr. Zimmerman wanted to know whether the healing energy claimed by nurses who     used therapeutic touch with patients could be objectively demonstrated.

The practitioner and a patient entered the magnetically shielded chamber of a SQUID detector, a highly sensitive device constructed to register the subtlest of human bio-magnetic fields. When the nurse passively held her hand close to the patient, SQUID recorded a baseline level; then, when the practitioner relaxed into the focused, meditative state used in therapeutic touch therapy.

SQUID detected an immediate and huge increase of the bio-magnetic field emanating from the healer’s hand. It was by far the strongest human field Zimmerman had ever recorded. In fact, the field was so powerful that SQUID was incapable of accurately measuring it.  Zimmerman found that non-practitioners were unable to reproduce       what   the trained nurse had done.

The biomagnetic pulsations from the hands are in the same frequency range as brain waves and scientific studies of the frequencies necessary for healing indicate that they naturally sweep back and forth through the full range of therapeutic frequencies, thus being able to stimulate healing in any part of the body.

Dr. Zimmerman’s findings were confirmed when Japanese Professors Seto, Kusaka              and Nakazato (1992)  accurately measured the extraordinarily large biomagnetic fields emanating from the hands of martial arts experts such as those trained in Qigong, yoga, meditation, Zen, etc. We now know that all forms of life vibrate in the frequency range of 10 Hz, and that these healing bio-magnetic fields variably pulse at the same frequency as does the Earth’s electromagnetic field (7-10 Hz, called the Schumann Resonance).

Just as a fish breathes and feeds in water, our bodies and minds live, breathe, and have their being through resonance in and with our Earth’s electromagnetic atmosphere. Biological systems need the Earth’s magnetic field in order to function just as much as  they need oxygen, soil, water and sunlight.

Indeed, a revolution is occurring in our understanding of biological processes and healing. The 19th and 20th centuries in the West  were largely dominated by anatomical (surgery) and biochemical (drugs) approaches to the treatment of human disease.  Now,  instead of treating biological dysfunction with drugs and surgery (allopathic medicine), and the 21st century is seeing a dramatic increase in the use and study of subtle energies that elegantly enhance the body’s own capacity for self-healing.

Also known as resonance medicine, the frequencies of pulsating bio-magnetic fields — whether they are introduced by a healer’s hands, by light, by heat, by sound, or by a low-frequency electromagnetic device — match and resonate with the frequencies of different cellular and molecular structures in the body.
