Why Is It Still Considered Such in the Mainstream Medical world?!?
The very first question asked by the doc – Do you have a family history of cancer?
It’s no longer relevant. We know far too much now but there is still over 100 Billion $$$$ spent annually on genetic research for cancer. That cancer and many other diseases or metabolic and related to the cellular or mitochondria has been known for over a century from all the books I’ve read – some which were published in 1927 –
Thomas Seyfried, Ph.D writes in his 2016 book Cancer as a Metabolic Disease: On the Origin, Management, and Prevention of Cancer
“What we have to recognize … is that if cancer is a mitochondrial metabolic disease and you get cancer because of mitochondrial failure in certain populations of cells and certain tissues, if you prevent your mitochondria from entering into this dysfunctional state … [then] the probability of getting cancer is going to be significantly reduced.
To what percent? I would say a minimum of 80 percent. Cancer is probably, as I said in my book, one of the most manageable diseases that we know of …
The problem is that many people don’t want [to take the preventive steps to avoid cancer]. They’re like, ‘I have to therapeutically fast for a week? Oh, I’m not going to. Give me a break’ … An effective prevention is to eat less and move more. A lot of people don’t want to do that … Once you realize what cancer is, that it’s a metabolic disease, you can take charge of those kinds of things. In other words, getting cancer is not God’s will. It’s not bad luck.”
Why don’t more people know about this? Why doesn’t every doctor and practitioner who deals with anyone with cancer of any kind know this stuff?
Why were the only options presented in the year 2018 – cutting, burning and poisoning? And that I chose not do more research and not schedule my surgery and next steps was a given the stink eye. Something is not right here. And it’s gotta be more than just that people don’t want to change their diet.
When I was finally diagnosed with Celiac disease after a string of diagnosis trying to find out what was “wrong” I found out about colonics as a Tool for self healing.
This was back in the 90’s when little was even considered around gluten and it’s harm on our gut health. You see, I was in great shape physically but I was constantly sick, lethargic, depressed, had anxiety attacks and so on. I had diagnoses of lupus, fibromyalgia, depression, chronic fatigue syndrome and from the cult I was in I was known as PTS (potential trouble source). The common theme here though – it’s all symptomatic. None of it ever looked at the WHOLE person. So to even consider that what’s going on in the intestines might have an effect on the whole was really unheard of.
To date though, the 2nd biggest progress I made was when colonics were recommended to me by my Functional Medicine MD. The first has to do with the mind and our thoughts and that’s in another article worth checking out.
Although it was the first I’d investigated colonics for myself, hydro therapy has been around since ancient Egyptian times and I knew about enemas. In fact, enemas we not uncommon only distasteful to discuss and likely “died out” as a very simple workable solution illness around the same time our natural and traditional diet and medicine was displaced in the early part of the 1900s.
My first set of colonics I did with a professional therapist. I learned so much from her and appreciate the experience greatly. I started out doing 2 per week for a month then 1 weekly then 1 monthly for about a year. It may seem like a lot – and I’ve heard people say they don’t need it because they poop regularly, but believe me when I say, there could be a lodged piece of dead food in your upper intestines…well…it’s not really a fun topic but it’s necessary.
I had done regular (weekly) coffee enemas as part of the Gerson therapy for cancer but my RBTI practitioner reminded me the significant difference between the enema and the colonic. They are not even close to being the same.
The enema is only getting the lower colon…
It’s very rare that only 1 colonic is needed. Colonics can get expensive. Right now they are around the $75 market – well worth it with a competent colon hydrotherapist of course but my budget couldn’t handle how many I would need over this period to get my health back. So I decided to invest in my own colonic board.
This is the colon board I have at home.
It’s all relative of course because I was an active health and fitness trainer and was really good at my job. But I think many people who go into a career they are passionate about do so because they have either been helped from it or have had someone they love helped. And we also keep learning because we want to keep getting better, for ourselves and for our clients.
As a mom and a business owner I learn a lot from parenting that helps me in my business. I have two very different little boys and I have had to adjust my thinking about how to raise children. No two children are alike. My oldest, Ryder, who is eight, is gentle, nurturing and has an innate ability to see the bigger picture. Dax, my 5-year-old, is an artist through and through. Emotional, sensitive yet very intense. I’ve had to really step back and see my boys from a place of full presence and not fit them into a structure I found in books, approaches or guidelines. In other words, I still have to be and do my parenting.
As any parent knows, understanding is one of the most important pieces to parenting. If you don’t understand your children, you won’t be able to “stand” your child.
In business, no two clients are alike. Any cookie cutter approach or system out there can tell you to do “these steps and it’s a no fail”. I say, that’s a fast way to poor results. If you do not understand your client you won’t be able to stand them. Conversely, they won’t be able to stand you and you are going to have a lot of unhappy clients or none at all.
You must understand your client and their unique needs, what drives them, what specific fears, beliefs or lack of skills might be stopping them. If you communicate in a way that’s like a robot or a script not your own – no matter how much you’ve rehearsed or practiced, you aren’t fully present – not with yourself, not for your client. I can guarantee full understanding will be missing.
Last week I was working with a client who had a challenge around clearly communicating during enrollment conversations. I knew she was following the script of a competent and successful business coach but she hadn’t “made it her own”. As an actress I am very much an advocate of living truthfully even in imaginary circumstances and I teach this to my clients. We don’t need anymore talking heads. We need hearts opening and communicating their truth.
What I felt was intriguing and what she experienced was a breakthrough that led to her landing her first major client with a huge success story from the client just from the enrollment conversation alone.
Here’s what I coached her on: I knew the best way I could help her was to “ACT” as a real client so I could actually “FEEL” how it went rather than think and analyze the process. When she was following the script I felt a break/cut in our connection and as a result the understanding diminished. I felt less interested in what she had to offer and actually confused by the words she was saying and in her ability to help me and my desire to hire her, when moments before had genuinely been there.
I felt myself really wanting her services when she was fully connected with me, listening to me, coaching me, directing me from her grounded and authentic place as her unique genius, her blessed gift and talent as a coach. It happened each time she went back to the “script”. I could feel the disconnection. I could feel the break in understanding. Even though she was word for word of a “masterly” written script. I could feel myself getting distracted. As I expressed this to my client we were able to tweak and work through this in order to refine her enrollment conversations. By the end of the session, she was laughing and excited about doing what she does best, connecting!
Every time I work with a client I gain so much more understanding. It is so important to fully understand our own truth, know our own unique voice and from a confident present place, listen, observe and respond. Only then will you truly understand the person in front of you, whether it is your child, your client or yourself! That’s what I like to call stepping on to Your Center Stage.
