THE ENDING OF THE MONTH


THE ENDING OF THE MONTH

 

This month was special to me for many family birthdays, my husband and my dad’s.  Both are special men that have influenced my life and gave me a chance to think outside the box. I too had breast cancer, but this month wasn’t about survival, but education.  I wrote a book about my ordeal with cancer and how I managed it while enjoying life without all the treatment side effects.


 

People do not get it, healing yourself starts with a lifestyle change.  I used scientific methods in which the results were fabulous and suffered no loss of hair and never felt ill.  The first thing I learned from Dr. Perez was heat and oxygen kills just the bad cancer cells.  The treatments I received allowed the good cells in my body to remain.

 

The most important of all that I learned was what our environment is doing to us…  The pesticides and GMO’s  are what is helping us to get cancer.  This is why I go organic.  It’s not just what I eat, but also what I put on my skin. It only takes 5 seconds to absorb in your skin.  One most important clue is that cancer feeds on sugar and wheat.  So I now do not eat processed sugar or wheat.  I am gluten free.

 

Please, do your research and gain knowledge before it is too late.  Remember you can manage cancer ~ Knowledge is power.

 

In closing I am remembering a Facebook friend Christina for she lost her battle this month with breast cancer and all the others that have been suffering, it does not have to be that way.  My husband and I are Proof in the pudding, both had cancer and both did not have surgery, chemo nor radiation.  It’s all about the type of procedure you use and USA doctors only know one way the conventional way.  Look up Functional Medicine and research other ways.

 

Individual we are a drop, but together we are an ocean.  If anything you get from this, I would like you to spread how important knowledge is and to think outside the box.

HUMMINGBIRDS ~ LOVE AND JOY

HUMMINGBIRDS ~ LOVE AND JOY



Looking out my bedroom window, a hummingbird nest appeared. To me it brings back why we are here on earth.  The joy of nature and love.  The hummingbird is a factor of giving peace a chance.  Today as we spend our day expressing ones opinions, think of this bird and what it represents.  For we need more hummingbirds in the world…

Hummingbirds, called new world birds because they are native to North America, Central and South America, are considered to be symbols of peace, love and happiness, moreover, ancient pagans held them sacred for their tireless energy and anxiety.

In Native American culture, a hummingbird symbolizes timeless joy and the Nectar of Life. It's a symbol for accomplishing that which seems impossible and will teach you how to find the miracle of joyful living from your own life circumstances.

They are really spectacular birds, and have a lot to teach a person about self-discovery and healing.

It stands for immortality. Or sometimes the Sun.

Hummingbirds are seen by some as a messenger of love and joy. It symbolizes energy, wonder and swift action. It is associated with the Ghost Spirit Native American religion which teaches a dance that is intended to return the natural balance of the world.

 

Interesting facts about the hummingbirds: 


The hummingbird is the smallest bird and also the smallest of all animals that have a backbone.

 
They have no sense of smell
 

 
 
 
Because the hummingbird can rotate its wings in a circle, they are the only bird that can fly forwards, backwards, up, down ,sideways and  hover in mid air.
to conserve energy while they sleep or when food is scarce, they can go into a hibernation-like state (torpor) where their metabolic rate is slowed to !/15th of its normal rate.

 
During migration, some hummingbirds make a non-stop 500 mile flight over the Gulf of Mexico.

 
During courtship dives they can reach speeds up to 60 miles per hour and can average speeds of 20 to 30 miles per hour.

 
They are the second largest family of birds with 343 species.

 
Their wings can beat their wings up to 80 times a second during normal flight and up to 200 times per second during a courtship dive.

 
The hummingbird has a heart rate that can reach up to 1,260 beats per minute.

 
Percentage wise, the hummingbird has the largest brain of all birds (4.2% of its total body weight).

 
They have very weak feet and use them mainly just for perching.
 
 
 

 

PINK, PINK, PINK


PINK, PINK, PINK

This month look around you and see all the products that are in pink.  This is supposed to represent Breast Cancer Awareness.  I suppose for some this helps them feel there is a purpose for the cause.  I just sit back as a breast cancer survivor and honor all that have passed from this disease.  I think we need to put our money into researching, how to manage this and its cause.  KNOWLEDGE IS POWER.

For the past four years I have done a lot of research on other methods that treat cancer.  I take the color pink to another level, using it with my passion and love to direct it toward the cause.  A lot of the products that use the tool of pink this month are the causes. If you do not believe me look up the ingredients of the products and you will see.

This world is big and other countries are using methods that are not accepted by the FDA.  For me, my insurance company stated that it was an experimental procedure and would not cover it.  Lesson learned; it worked and that is all that counts…  I am alive and had no surgery, chemo nor radiation. 

We all have choices and it’s all right to buy pink, just remember that life is not about that ~it’s about knowledge.  

So today, consider all the walks and events that you attend, and honor the ones that passed on from this disease, along with the concept of awareness. If only my Aunts that left us with breast cancer tried the methods that I used. I feel now I would be able to hug them today.

So put your money like me into pink to understand the cause and not the cure.  Because it can be cured by knowing the cause. I am proof….

BREAST CANCER MONTH ~ THE PINK RIBBON

BREAST CANCER MONTH
THE PINK RIBBON

Breast cancer is always filed in the back of my mind, for I was diagnosed in 2010. When October comes around it is rather personal to me, for I like all women see pink everywhere.  Now they have the Empire State Building in New York lit up with pink. Considering this I wanted to do some research on how the pink got started.

The first known use of a pink ribbon in connection with breast cancer awareness was in the fall of 1991, when the Susan G. Komen Foundation handed out pink ribbons to participants in its New York City race for breast cancer survivors.

The pink ribbon was adopted as the official symbol of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month the next year, in 1992. The pink ribbon was derived from the popular red ribbon for AIDS awareness. Alexandra Penney, the editor-in-chief of the women's health magazine Self, and breast cancer survivor Evelyn Lauder, the senior corporate vice president at the cosmetics company Estée Lauder created a ribbon for the cosmetics giant to distribute in stores in New York City.

Estée Lauder and Self initially approached Charlotte Haley, who had begun a peach-colored ribbon campaign to press the National Cancer Institute to increase its budget for cancer prevention research. Haley refused to be part of what she felt was a commercial effort, so Estée Lauder and Self changed the color of their ribbon to light pink in 2005, to circumvent Haley's efforts to stop them.
A pink and blue ribbon is sometimes used to symbolize breast cancer in men, which is relatively rare. The pink and blue ribbon was designed in 1996 by Nancy Nick, president and founder of the John W. Nick Foundation to bring awareness that "Men Get Breast Cancer Too.

As an art lover, I take color very seriously and adopt it in my book   http://outskirtspress.com/myjourneyofcompletion/ which shows FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE and not the CONVENTIONAL WAY while enjoying life while managing cancer without side effects.
I feel that the color should not just be pink, but a mixture of pink and green.  For this represents two sides of cancer.  Pink to represent the compassion, and love.  This relates to unconditional love and understanding. The deeper the pink, the more passion and energy it exhibits.  Green represents the balance of harmony.  It’s the greatest balancer of the heart and the emotions, creating equilibrium between the head and heart. 

I stand up and hope someday they will change the pink ribbon to not just pink but to stripe it with green for a balance of choice!!!!! Also to educate people on the knowledge of other methods to manage cancer and have insurance cover whatever we choose.  It should be our choice and not up to the doctors or insurance companies to dictate what we should have.  It should not be one method for all!!!! 

Please stand up with me and make the first step for the future of our children.  E-mail me with your input and comments at   mycolorfuljourney@gmail.com  or just put on my timeline your thoughts.

BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH


BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH

 

October represents several occasions. The first that comes to my mind and anyone that had someone dear to them or has breast cancer, this is the month to honor them.  I will be busy this month spreading the word that there are choices of other methods to manage this disease.  Proof is in the mudding for I have learned first-hand with the treatments that I chose we can manage cancer without surgery, chemo or radiation.  The saying, “We individually are drops of water but as a whole we are the ocean”, so I am going to spend most of my time working on educating and giving knowledge out through my book and speaking out to the public for the cause. 

 

Yes, we do have choices.  I am so upset and heartfelt over this subject, for I have been effected and now that we can manage this disease not only through FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE, but also through lifestyle.  It’s hard, but not as hard as having surgery, chemo or radiation.  We need to make a stand and fight for our lives.

 

So, let’s take a moment or two to honor all that have died of this illness. I have several family members that have died through surgery, chemo and radiation.  Enough is enough ~ stand up with  me and show my book to someone that needs help, that want’s not to go the conventional way.

We can manage this and live a happier life without side effects. 


 

For only $5.00 on Kindle or E-Book, this might save a life of someone that didn’t know of other ways to manage cancer.

          Everyone lives in fear of a cancer diagnosis. Aside from the pain and stress of the disease itself, the diagnosis brings with it the horror of being subjected to terrifying surgeries, radiation, and chemotherapy…all of which can have side effects as bad as or worse than the disease. When Sheryl Malin was diagnosed with breast cancer, she wasn’t willing to have her health ruined by US-standard cancer treatments. Instead, she and her husband went to the internet, and armed with their belief that the usual prescribed course of action wasn’t right for Sheryl, they discovered highly effective alternative treatments being used in Europe and in Mexico. This is the story of how Sheryl beat cancer without surgery, chemo, or radiation. Through her daily journal, which she also shared online as a blog with readers who followed her journey of hope, Sheryl charts her progress. With information ranging from the types of alternative treatments available to the necessity of lifestyle changes to stay healthy, Sheryl’s amazing memoir is a radiant beacon of possibility for anyone who has been diagnosed with cancer. Her message always remains that how you treat your illness should be your choice. Everyone is unique, and it’s your right to trust the wisdom of your body and mind to choose the path that is best for you. Follow Sheryl on the road to recovery…and learn about the innovative options available when you start thinking outside the box.

WOODSTOCK MEXICAN STYLE
 


Here is a twist, after forty-five years Woodstock has come to Ajijic Mexico.  It’s amazing how another culture can pick up the music of the 60’s.  Dan and I never went to Woodstock during the day, but we have been to the town and concert site different times through the years.  The town still represents the hippie era with peace, hippie art, dreadlocks and all.


 


It was fabulous hearing a Mexican band play the all-time 60’s songs.  Listening to the greatest of all times like Joe Cocker, Richie Havens, John B. Sebastian, Santana, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Janis Joplin,  and many more brought Dan back to his youth.  I have taken some movies of clips from the songs that were played along with some pictures to celebrate this event.


 


To see that generation now dress up like hippies and dance was amazing.
