Walk the Walk for Breast Cancer 


When I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2010 I was very fortunate to have many therapists amongst my circle of friends and they kindly gave me alot of help. So I know how important it is to have this help and support and this is why I decided to do the marathon, yes 26.2 miles for Walk the Walk.  Although I am against big pharmaceutical companies making profits from cancer, Walk the Walk  give funds to organisations such as the Maggie Centres  which provide free of charge support, counselling, advice, workshops and therapies for those dealing with cancer now.  A bonus for me is that  when I was a child I had a dream to take part in a marathon and now I will achieve that a few months off my 64th birthday.  So yes I am looking for sponsors. If you would like to support this worthy  cause  I would be very grateful and you can donate on my page here:-

Cancer - IMPORTANT PLEASE READ Especially Breast Cancer 

If you have been prescribed Calcichew-D3 Forte chewable Tablets which alot of Breast Cancer patients have in the U.K. Please look at the tablet content. You will see that it contains three E numbers. One of them being Aspartame. As alot of people already know Aspartame is very dangerous for your health. If you don't already know about Aspartame please google side effects of Aspartame and you will be horrified.

Calcichew-D3 Forte Tablets are prescribed for the calcium and vitamin D. You can obtain both of these in forms which do not contain Aspartame. Unfortunately you will have to pay for them yourself.

However - what price your health?

Please pass this along to everyone who you think will be interested. Which really needs to be Everyone.

What's Really in Chicken McNuggets? (Scary) 

by Mike Adams, NaturalNews.Com

Ever wonder what's really found in Chicken McNuggets? Some of the ingredients, it turns out, seem to belong more to an industrial factory of some kind, not a food retailer. According to the McDonald's Corporation, its famous Chicken McNuggets are made with ingredients including:

  • Autolyzed yeast extract (which contain free glutamate, similar to MSG),
  • Sodium phosphates and
  • Sodium aluminum phosphate.

But that's not the freaky part. According to McDonald's own website, Chicken McNuggets are also made with:

  • "hydrogenated soybean oil with TBHQ and
  • citric acid added to preserve freshness" and
  • "Dimethylpolysiloxane added as an antifoaming agent."

At least two of these ingredients are artificially synthesized industrial chemicals. TBHQ, a petroleum derivative, is used as a stabilizer in perfumes, resins, varnishes and oil field chemicals. Laboratory studies have linked it to stomach tumors. "At higher doses, it has negative health effects on lab animals, such as producing precursors to stomach tumors and damage to DNA. A number of studies have shown that prolonged exposure to high doses of TBHQ may be carcinogenic, especially for stomach tumors." (

Dimethylpolysiloxane, a type of silicone, is used in caulks and sealants, as a filler for breast implants, and as key ingredient in Silly Putty. Says Wikipedia:

"PDMS is also used as a component in silicone grease and other silicone based lubricants, as well as in defoaming agents, mold release agents, damping fluids, heat transfer fluids, polishes, cosmetics, hair conditioners and other applications. PDMS has also been used as a filler fluid in breast implants, although this practice has decreased somewhat, due to safety concerns. PDMS is used variously in the cosmetic and consumer product industry as well. For example, PDMS can be used in the treatment of head lice..."

Not that the other ingredients are any better. Because cotton is not regulated as a food crop, cottonseed oil may contain chemical pesticides that are banned in food production. It is also almost always genetically modified. Hydrogenated oils, of course, typically contain trans fats, the artificially produced fats that are unusable by the body and that studies have linked to a number of detrimental health problems. And autolyzed yeast extract is a chemical taste-enhancing ingredient containing free glutamate that manufacturers use as a friendlier-looking replacement for MSG.

And what about the chicken in Chicken McNuggets? It's factory-farmed chicken, not free-range chicken. So it's the kind of chicken that's typically treated with vaccines and hormones while being fed conventional feed products that are medicated with pharmaceuticals and grown with pesticides.

Yum!! Don't forget to ask for extra dipping sauce. We haven't even talked about what you'll find in there...

Car Air-conditioning - Very Important!!!! 

No wonder more folks  are dying from cancer than ever before.
We  wonder where this stuff comes from but here is an example
that explains a lot of the cancer causing incidents.
Many people are in their cars first thing in the morning and the last thing at night,
7 days a week.

As I read this, it  makes me feel guilty and ill. 

Please pass this on  to as many people as  possible.
Guess it’s not too late to make some changes.
Question: My car book says to roll down the windows to let out all the hot air before turning on A/C.
Why is that?
I have heard that it is very important to do that for health reasons!
Answer: Car A/C (Air  Conditioning) MUST READ!!!

DO NOT turn on A/C as soon as you enter the car.
Open the windows after you enter your car and then turn ON the AC after a couple of  minutes.

Here's  why:
According to research,  the car dashboard, seats, air freshener  emit Benzene,

a Cancer  causing toxin (carcinogen - take time to observe the smell of heated  plastic in your car).
In addition to causing cancer, Benzene poisons your bones, causes anaemia and reduces white blood cells.
Prolonged exposure  will cause Leukaemia, increasing the risk of cancer and also cause miscarriage.

Acceptable Benzene  level indoors is 50mg per sq.ft.

A car parked  indoors with windows closed  will contain 400-800 mg of Benzene.
If parked outdoors  under the sun at a temperature above 60 degrees F,

the Benzene level goes up  to 2000-4000 mg, 40 times the acceptable  level.

People who get into the car, keeping windows closed will inevitably inhale,
in quick succession, excessive amounts of the toxin.

Benzene is a toxin that affects your kidney and liver.
What's worse, it is extremely difficult for your body to expel this toxic stuff.

So friends, please open the windows and door of your car - give time for interior

to air out  -dispel the deadly stuff - before you enter.


To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation

of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends. To appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the

world a bit better whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know that even one life

has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded....... Ralph Waldo Emerson

Cancer Update from Johns Hopkins 

Johns Hopkins Update...A Very Good Article


Cancer Update from Johns Hopkins :

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

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

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

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

5. To overcome the multiple nutritional deficiencies, changing
diet to eat more adequately and healthy, 4-5 times/day

and by including supplements will strengthen the immune system.

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

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

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

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

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

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


a. Sugar substitutes like
NutraSweet, Equal, Spoonful, etc are made
with Aspartame and it is harmful
. A better natural substitute
would be Manuka honey or molasses, but only in very small
Table salt has a chemical added to make it white in
color Better alternative is Bragg's aminos or sea salt.

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

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

d. A diet made of 80% fresh vegetables and juice, whole
grains, seeds, nuts and a little fruits help put the body into
an alkaline environment. About 20% can be from cooked
food including beans. Fresh vegetable juices provide live
enzymes that are easily absorbed and reach down to
cellular levels within 15 minutes to nourish and enhance
growth of healthy cells. To obtain live enzymes for building
healthy cells try and drink fresh vegetable juice (most
vegetables including be an sprouts) and eat some raw
vegetables 2 or 3 times a day. Enzymes are destroyed at
temperatures of 104 degrees F (40 degrees C)..

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

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

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

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

15. Cancer is a disease of the mind, body, and spirit.
A proactive and positive spirit will help the cancer warrior
be a survivor. Anger, un-forgiveness and bitterness put
the body into a stressful and acidic environment. Learn to
have a loving and forgiving spirit. Learn to relax and enjoy

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

No plastic containers in micro.

No water bottles in freezer.

No plastic wrap in microwave...........

............Johns Hopkins has recently sent this out in its newsletters. This information is being circulated at Walter Reed Army Medical Center as well. Dioxin chemicals cause cancer, especially breast cancer. Dioxins are highly poisonous to the cells of our bodies. Don't freeze your plastic bottles with water in them as this releases dioxins from the plastic. Recently, Dr Edward Fujimoto, Wellness Program Manager at Castle Hospital , was on a TV program to explain this health hazard. He talked about dioxins and how bad they are for us. He said that we should not be heating our food in the microwave using plastic containers. This especially applies to foods that contain fat. He said that the combination of fat, high heat, and plastics releases dioxin into the food and ultimately into the cells of the body. Instead, he recommends using glass, such as Corning Ware, Pyrex or ceramic containers for heating food. You get the same results, only without the dioxin. So such things as TV dinners, instant ramen and soups, etc., should be removed from the container and heated in something else. Paper isn't bad but you don't know what is in the paper. It's just safer to use tempered glass, Corning Ware, etc. He reminded us that a while ago some of the fast food restaurants moved away from the foam containers to paper The dioxin problem is one of the reasons.

Also, he pointed out that plastic wrap, such as Saran, is just as dangerous when placed over foods to be cooked in the microwave. As the food is nuked, the high heat causes poisonous toxins to actually melt out of the plastic wrap and drip into the food. Cover food with a paper towel instead.

Me and the Big C 

When I wrote the first article ‘my dance with breast cancer’ I wanted to get the message out to women how important it is to check themselves regularly so they could find any changes quickly. An early diagnosis is very important to a full recovery. However I would now like to say that prevention is better than a cure.

When I was diagnosed with breath cancer, I had so many fears arise, some of which were mentioned in my previous article. I found myself thinking about my father, mother and brother and how they died of cancer. Would that happen to me?

My mother had breast cancer. She didn’t take the tablets they gave her as they made her extremely sick. This was a reaction caused with them being mixed with all the tablets she was already taking for Parkinsons disease. Then one day she collapsed and was left paralysed from the neck down. Told she could be treated for the cancer but she would remain paralysed and she made the decision not to have the treatment. She died two weeks later.

I also thought about my father who had gone into hospital for ulcers. Only to be told the next day he had cancer and unless he had a major operation would be dead within sixmonths. He died eighteen months later. Then I also thought about my brother who had pancreatic cancer and died a few months after being diagnosed.

All these thoughts kept going through my head. Would I end up the same way? I kept re-assuring myself by reminding myself I knew about the body mind connection.

I was having the normal medical treatment and the alternative treatment. Also I was having Theta Healing

which was removing old negative beliefs from my subconscious mind. I was having new positive beliefs inserted into my sub-conscious to help me. These were all a big plus on my side which unfortunately my parents and brother didn’t have. Also I think it was important for me that I was dancing with the cancer and embracing it - not fighting against it.

When my article “My Dance with Cancer” in issue 13 of the More to Life magazine went to press I had just been given the dates for my radiotherapy treatment. Within a few days of being diagnosed with breast cancer I started taking Essiac tea which is a herbal remedy believed to help deal with cancer. I also had hands on healing, absent healing, theta healing, massage and reflexology. After the surgery to remove the tumour I took homeopathic, flower and vibrational remedies to help remove the shock from the body. I used affirmations and did creative visualisation.

Then while I was having the radiotherapy I took a homeopathic remedy to help eliminate the bad effects of the treatment on the body.

My first radiotherapy appointment was the strangest, all being very new to me. To make matters worse both machines had broken down and they were running at least an hour behind. After stripping off to my waist and putting on a gown I waited to be called. When my turn came I was led down a curvy corridor into the room which contained a very large machine. I had to lie down on the bed, the radiotherapist then took measurements around my breast and aimed a green laser light beam onto my breast. They doubled checked all the measurements. I was told I must  lie very still and not move during the treatment. Then when all was ready they said they were leaving the room. They switched the machine on and as they left I heard the door slam shut behind them. They said they would be watching me on a monitor from another room. When that door slammed I didn’t know what to expect. I heard some celebrity once describe the machine as being like an alien from outer space. I could relate to that now lying here all alone and the machine making weird space like noises. I thought to myself this machine is so big if it collapsed on me I would be a gonner. Then I thought if I think like that I will frighten the life out of myself. So I decided to take myself off to the 7th dimension as I had learnt to do in Theta Healing and stayed there until it was over. In fact it was finished much quicker than I had anticipated. That was my first session over and then I had another fourteen sessions. I got weekends off for good behaviour.

I am normally a good sleeper, once my head hits the pillow I am gone. However during the treatment my sleep patterns were completely put out of sync.

Just before I had my final treatment I saw the oncologist again. I wasn’t very happy when he told me I would have to go on a five year programme of hormone treatment, as his assistant had told me before I started the radiotherapy that it wasn’t worth putting me through five years of that treatment just to give me another three percent chance of it not coming back. So I was quite upset, however he assured me that he felt I needed it.

When I researched this hormone treatment there were a lot of side effects connected with it. The mains ones being weakening of the bones, tiredness and weight gain. I started the treatment the day after the last session of radiotherapy.

Yes, I get tired now and again so I am pacing myself as much as I can. I had a bone scan to check the condition of my bones which were fine. However the oncologist put me on calcium and vitamin D to counteract any effects of the hormone treatment on my bones.

As far as the weight gain goes I have kept to the same weight. I did lose a stone after coming out of hospital. I went onto a forum for hormone treatment for breast cancer and saw that the women were complaining about the weight gain they were having no matter what they did. It didn’t seem to make any difference how little they ate or how much exercises they did they still just kept piling on the weight. I felt I needed to do something to stop that happening so I have for most of the time being combining foods. I think this is the reason my weight has stayed stable. I have also been allowing the correct amount of time in between meals giving the food the time to fully digest.

One of the things I have started doing is drinking water from glass bottles. It is said that once water in plastic bottles gets warm then the chemicals in the plastic leak into the water. It has now been linked to breast cancer in women and prostate cancer in men.

Eating lots of fruit and vegetables is of course a good healthy diet. They say our 5 a day is important to help prevent cancer. Watching what we eat is so important. There are so many chemicals and preservatives added to food these days, or in the packaging which can leak into the food then we digest them.

There are also fruit and vegetables which are believed to help prevent cancer. The National Cancer Institute estimates that roughly one-third of all cancer deaths may be diet related.

We can harm ourselves by what we eat or on the other hand we can help ourselves. It all depends on what we eat. Broccoli, cabbage, and cauliflower have a chemical component called indole-3-carbinol that can combat breast cancer by converting a cancer-promoting oestrogen into a more protective variety. Carrots contain a lot of beta carotene, which may help reduce a wide range of cancers including lung, mouth, throat, stomach, intestine, bladder, prostate and breast. Grapefruits, like oranges and other citrus fruits, contain monoterpenes, believed to help prevent cancer by sweeping carcinogens out of the body. Seaweed and other sea vegetables contain beta-carotene, protein, vitamin B12, fiber, and chlorophyll, as well as chlorophylones - important fatty acids that may help in the fight against breast cancer. Eating pomegranates and other fruits that contain certain phytochemicals have been found to reduce the occurrence of hormone-dependent breast cancers, according to results of a new study.

Also we must think about the cream and lotions we put on our skin. We need to move back to all natural products. A lot of creams and lotions these days contain some amount of chemicals and these are absorbed by the skin and taken into the body. What is the long term effect on our bodies?

I expect most people know all this information. The question is what do we actually do about it? If we were to put chemicals on the back of our hand day after day and then one day we see a small cancerous growth on the back of our hand, as it started to get bigger we would start to get concerned and do something about it. Well we imbibe all these chemicals but unfortunately we can’t see what they are doing to us on the inside. So we need to stop using them, as prevention is the best cure. Things can be gone way too far on the inside before we feel the effects. Unfortunately in a lot of cases this can be too late.

Another important thing for us to do is exercise. How many of us actually exercise on a daily basis? I mean good exercise where we build up a sweat. Also connecting to the earth and grounding. It can help to detox the body to walk in bare feet on the earth each day. I like now to stand bare foot on the grass in my garden each day even if it is just for a few minutes. I remember as a kid I use to go bare foot for most of the time as much as I could. I didn’t like wearing shoes. How many of us did that as kids? How many of us still do it now?

What did I learn from my experience? This was a big wake up call for me to learn to take more care of my body. I had being taking care of the mind and spirit for years and although I had done the emotional work on the body I had neglected it in other ways. The biggest thing was that I had an old programme of I must keep going no matter what. I learnt it well in childhood, so much so that I realise now I never really knew when I was tired. My body would be exhausted and I would say I was alright and keep going.

Being brought up on a farm where we were ruled by  animals, weather and seasons, even if we were really sick we still had to get up and see to the animals and had to plant and reap according to weather and seasons.

I have learnt that though an illness runs in a family it can be broken. Someone has to be the first to break the pattern.

I take more care of my body and allow myself to rest when needed. I also make sure to eat more of the foods that prevent cancer.

Most of all I am very grateful to wake up every morning to a brand new day and I am so grateful for

my wonderful family and friends and life itself. Life is a wonderful gift we have been given. So grasp it

with both hands and extract all of its magnificent treasures just waiting there for us to explore and experience. That includes happy times and sad times, life is a duality.

I saw the oncologist in October and was given the first all

clear. I  see the surgeon again in January.

Shadows and Mirrors By Anita Pathik Law (Ani) 


Am I brave enough to go into those places, I’ve come to avoid?

To move out of what’s seen, and into the void?

Do I trust the outcomes unknown?

Will I be present to what I am shown?

Do I feel the strength I will need,

or will my fears take the lead?

I must admit, that sometimes I fear,

the shadows within that begin to appear

I might try to stuff them, deny they are there

At times I feel hatred, at others, despair

Sometimes it’s shame, judgment, or blame

And there are even those moments I feel completely insane!

But when I am silent, and present to truth

I know they are serving me, helping me choose

Each time I pray, for strength and surrender

I remember my whole life is yet but a mirror

I no longer fight the wisdom they offer

As I listen more intently, they don’t have to holler

They are my teachers, villains no more

No longer parts of me hated, rather, adored

As I love them they heal and I find my way back

To the essence within, no longer attacked

And in renewed wholeness, I expand into love

Thanks to my shadows, and their tricky little shoves

And in moments of forgetting, when I’m tired or stretched

I find that I’m gentler, ‘cause they no longer are threats

to my progress, my safety, not even my peace

I now know their voices, whether loud or a tease

And I embrace them as children, no longer afraid,

of my shadows’ projections, threatening plans once best laid

I surrender instead to the wisdom beneath

And honor the lessons they now do bequeath

Me and my shadows, travel together as ONE

I can see how loving them may actually be fun

Lighter and whole, I expand towards the light

And my shadows feel loved, since I no longer fight

So I stand here in wholeness, complete once again

Returning to the place of my Original Intention
