Most of you know I’ve been dealing with cancer since 1989 with a whole person approach – mind, body, emotions, and spirit. I don’t say I’m “fighting” cancer because the imagery of war doesn’t resonate with me. Cancer has been, and continues to be, one of my teachers.

In March I attended a workshop with Dr. Joe Dispenza and am continuing in a local book study group to learn how to apply the principles to my life. We just finished reading You are the Placebo, in which he says “if you combine a clear intention with an uncompromising trust in possibility, then you’ll step into the unknown, and that’s when the supernatural starts to unfold.”

My clear intention is to have a healthy body, mind, and spirit. When that happens, the confirmation will be “No Evidence of Disease” – also called dancing with NED. In my daily meditations, I can feel my reaction to receiving that news as if it has already happened.

For the 5th month in a row, my cancer marker (CA27.29) has gone down. It’s now at 122. I am grateful, and expecting it to keep moving in this direction. I can barely find the cancerous lump under my arm because it keeps getting smaller.

Since much of the immune system is in the gut, digestive health is part of my health-promoting strategy. The diarrhea I struggled with for several years is not a problem as long as I don’t eat any grains. It took a long time to figure this out, and I’m happy we finally did. Even a few spoons of rice creates a problem, so no grains for me for a while.

It’s possible that taking Femara has done the heavy lifting in this improvement. It blocks the estrogen that feeds my cancer. I continue to experience side effects from Femara – fatigue, bone pain, and hot flashes, and I can live with these.

My experience of wholeness and health is enhanced by fostering the feelings of acceptance, gratitude, and curiosity. As JD Martin and Jan Garrett sing in one of my favorite songs – “I’ve got no complaints whatsoever.” You can listen to it here.
