"In October 2001, when I was diagnosed with breast cancer, I said no to surgery, radiation and chemotherapy, and decided to follow a natural course of holistic healing - It's not that I wanted to rule out orthodox medicine altogether, indeed no - I wanted to be part of a bridge between the two; walk the middle way, and hopefully find some less invasive way - I wanted to feel good about my choices. This was not something the doctors could just cut out and I would return to normal life. I knew instinctively that all was not well in my 'normal' life. The truth is I was sad and heartbroken - Surely there had to be a connection. It would take time and courage to unravel the toxic mass that had encamped in my breast. Taking time to tune into my own intuition to explore the emotional side of my psyche carved a pathway back through the labyrinth of my life. With careful nutritional guidance and detoxification; confronting life's shadows, delving down deep inside, and beyond ordinary levels of perception, I was able to peel away the layers and connect with a 'higher order of being' - There was nothing else but TRUSTING in the 'all-knowingness' to which there is no name.In the process I began to feel better than I had in years. Ultimately, the journey has been a rare gift of such spellbinding wonder to me, that I feel destined to share it. My story does not portend to be a great treatise on the cure for cancer, no great academic achievement to be hailed by science, but hopefully its contents will touch those hearts that chance upon it and help other brave souls on their journey of healing."
