I didn't know what retirement would look like, but I wasn't expecting it to turn out like that. I was diag- nosed with Stage 1.5 breast cancer - but it hadn't spread to a node. I was told that it would, so I'd better have surgery fast. But, that was out of the question for me. I was attached to every single one of my body parts. So, I read everything I could find during that (s)madness - and healed my breast and life (after years in cancer-immersion college.)
This is a book with a happy ending. It's the truth about us as unique individuals and the cancer that's plaguing us all, not just the ones we pity but don't have time for. It's about the real heroes in the war on cancer, a brief history of Big Cancer - and why our cancer medicine is so foolish and barbaric.
It's a compendium of the natural medicine prac-ticed by genius doctors and smart lay people in and out of the United States. Ronald Reagan went to Ger-many to be healed.
It's a source of insight and new hope for real cures that had to go underground because nature can't be patented. It's about tailoring and monitoring our med-icine, so our bodies get well, not destroyed.
It's a testament to the men and women who are alive, because they became informed. It's for my son, Flynn, who didn't make it, because he had to learn for himself and I, his mom, who learned a new way to love
It's a wake-up call for all the people - who are strug-gling to be all they can be in a world that is turned upside down. I wrote this book for all of us who are looking for better ways to survive and thrive. We are better off if we know the truth now - before being blindsided by tumors that are really symptoms.
Consider this a love story, It was created out of my love for people of all ages, their precious lives - and life itself. What good does it do to have health insur-ance if we lose our lives paying them to help us die?
About the Author
Judith grew up in Washington State on the Olympic Peninsula across Puget Sound from Seattle. Her parents had no money, so her mother had to be her doctor. When Judith fell off bicycles, horses and hay wagons, her mother knew what to do.
Her mother read Prevention Magazine, and she thought doctors did more harm than good. She dried their clothes on a clothesline and bought their meat from local butchers - grass-fed. That was before the Big Beef and Poultry Industries took over.
Everybody called her mother Mom, so, when Judith got the bad news, she read everything she could find about holistic cancer treatments, because that's what Mom would have done.
Mom had allergies, so she put herself on a rotation diet and discovered she was allergic to wheat. So, when Judith got cancer, she noticed that bread made her feel worse, but she knew what to do. She started eating plain goat yoghurt and non-gluten bread along with her raw, organic juices and bone broth.
She calls herself a "miracle," because she seems to attract whatever she needs. She discovered apithera-py, epigenetics, the gene that kept her anxious and depressed the greater part of her life, and, then, she found Flynn again, her son, who died of ocular melano-ma metastasized to everywhere in his body - and the most advanced healing system in the western world, the Body Code. She is healing her life; she needs to heal.
For reasons Judith cannot remember, she was always afraid of doctors. She finds doctors who know more than most doctors all the time.
Her older sister took vitamins at a time when most people didn't know what they were. So, when Judith lived with her in the summertime, she took vitamins A and E, so her skin would glow and ate salads and grains and lots of fruit. She knew without knowing that she is a vegetarian meta-bolic type. She considers herself lucky.
She followed the alternative cancer folks' advise to eat vegan, but that could have been a big error, because she knows now that the autonomic ner-vous system can determine what foods to eat. At healthexcel.com there is a test to take to determine your metabolic type.
Judith still studies Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez and Dr. William Donald Kelley. She continues to learn from the pioneers who figured out by trial and error that certain nutrients stimulate the sympathetic (fight, flight or freeze) and the parasympathetic (rest and digest) sides of the autonomic nervous system.
Her chronic anxiety is subsiding on daily doses of magnesium glycinate and potassium citrate. All the peanut butter on rice bread and strawberries and raspberries must have been right for her. She believes we KNOW what foods are best for us. And, when we don't, we can find out at: healthexcel.com
