The cancer diagnosis won’t kill me but Simon Harris and Kate O’ Connell’s proposed bill might. There I was happy living with a cancer diagnosis, minding my own business, looking for my cure to self-heal when Pat Kenny gives Kate O’Connell radio time to discuss her nasty bill.

I know some of you believe it is a bill to regulate alternative therapies, all I can say is look deeper.

It will take away your right as an Irish citizen to get alternative therapies in your own country for a cancer diagnosis, the only choice you will have is whatever the oncologist decides to prescribe.

If you want all choices available to you when faced with a cancer diagnosis please sign and share the petition. Team work makes the dream work.

Two weeks back I was on the verge of giving up. People had signed in front of me yet their signatures went out into space somewhere. I wrote to FB and Simon Harris, still no reply.

So please never give up, sign and share. Tell your friends, ask them to sign and share.

So,what inspired me to never give up, TREW FIELDS FESTIVAL

We need this in Ireland.

2 days and 3 nights of wonderful talks, workshops, great vegan food, organic drink, music, talent and dancing with people who had stage 1 to stage 4 various cancers. People who inspired me to keep on my chosen path and to never give up until that last breath.

Camping2 nights in a tent with John and 2 sleeping bags only, my tumour earthed for the first time and I slept like a baby. The lashing rain failed to unearth us from our magical sleep.

There were cancer awareness talks on both days from 10am to 6pm alongside four different venues with a variety of holistic health workshops and classes. Full, full days.

What struck me was the positivity, what you think really does matter.

“How your mind can heal your body” by David Hamilton PhD.

David has a PhD in organic chemistry and spent 4 years in the pharmaceutical industry, developing drugs for cardiovascular disease and cancer. Inspired by the placebo effect, he left the industry to write books and educate people in how they can harness their mind and emotions to improve their health.

The Doctor Patients Panel with Dr. Lauren MacDonald, Dr.Lyanh Dang, and Dr. Robin Fawcett, Family doctor, mama, writer, speaker, nature-lover.
Navigating life and medicine after BRCA2+ cancer. Inspirational Doctor’s, all with great insights and advice to give.

Leah Bracknell From cancer victim to cancer rebel.

Fi Munro PhD Live like you are Dying.

Professor Robert Thomas Polyphenols-The Gifts from Nature. My hero for banning sugar from his oncology department.

Steve Ottersberg how to change your genes- Epigenetics, a little heavy for me, shame I forgot the pen and paper.

The awesome Dr. Nasha Winters, Treating the Terrain, not just the Tumour.

The Metabolic Approach to Cancer  I could listen to this lady for hours.

Then last but definitely not least “The I’ve got cancer, what now panel” with Dr. Aryan Tavakkoli, Dr. Catherine Zollman,Dr. Nasha Winters &  Mairead Mc Dermott.

So many workshops, talks and demonstrations and all for optimum, positive health. So many wonderful people all in it together for the health of mankind.

I found the rebounding and lymphatic drainage demo useful, now at least I know how to rebound correctly.

Nothing prepared me for the effect of the inspirational breathing, it took my breath away and I am definitely doing the training.

This festival is a life changing experience for anyone diagnosed with cancer. It brings hope and inspiration to try different treatments and leaves the door open to experiment with all therapies available. Just because if hasn’t been clinical tested doesn’t mean it won’t work. It will never be clinical tested unless it makes a profit for shareholders. The pharmaceutical industry has a lot of shareholders to keep happy and one needs to ask the question is it money driven or health driven?

In my eyes this Bill will achieve nothing only to hinder anyone who refuses chemotherapy, radiation and the chemicals offered to an already sick body.

So, to all my friends out there dealing with a cancer diagnosis stay positive OPtimisimand if you ever feel yourself getting down click on any of the links above to lift your spirits. Join as many cancer forums as you can and empower yourself.

Simon Harris

Dearest Simon,

I know how busy you must be dealing with mandatory vaccinations, the damage caused by the HPV Vaccine, I think Regret has over 24k supporters, ouch a lot of people to keep happy. Not to mention the Mesh Disasters , added to a hospital shambles. I guess it won’t be long until you have a recruitment issue, more hospital staff required due to the increase of sick people when you roll out 5G.

Taken all the above into consideration  I am still disappointed that I have not heard from you.

So, my life with a cancer diagnosis continues with or without you.

I am happy, healthy, working, enjoying life and appreciating every day. If you did read my emails you should know I was diagnosed with Invasive Ductal Carcinoma in my left breast, node positive, estrogen driven, in August 2016. After lots and lots of research I refused chemotherapy, radiation, surgery and drugs.

It took time to find anyone from an alternative background to work with me, to fight this deadly diagnosis and now you and some of the elected government have hopes to prosecute those same people who can give health advice from a different perspective.

For those of you who don’t know Kate O’ Connell and Simon Harris have taken it upon themselves to produce a bill that will decide what we can and cannot to with our body when faced with a cancer diagnosis. https://www.oireachtas.ie/en/bills/bill/2018/139/?tab=bill-text

So, in my eyes you intend to slowly kill me and anyone who chooses the alternative route. If I cannot access alternative therapies in this country for my cancer diagnosis is that refusing me the treatment I deserve?

Shame on you both.

My petition against the Bill slowed down around the time I read the following (your words taken from https://www.oireachtas.ie/en/debates/debate/dail/2019-05-16/35/)

I welcome the fact that some social media giants have responded to the call for action made by me, Deputy O’Connell and others. They have a responsibility to ensure they do not become a platform for misinformation and I welcome the fact that some of them have made progress in that regard.

Coincidence I thought, no one would stoop as low as trying to halt my petition. I believe Ireland is a parliamentary, representative democratic republic and a member state of the European Union.

Simon, did you and Ms O’Connell have anything to do with the stopping of my petition on Facebook?

I am happy to meet you to discuss further, just not this weekend please as I am off to the UK to attend a Holistic Cancer Festival where medicine and alternative are very welcome.

Looking forward to a reply.



Now for the all-important petition. Please sign and share if you want access to all advice be it conventional or alternative if faced with a diagnosis of cancer.

When faced with a cancer diagnosis can the MIND make or break you?

I took a day off last week as I was tired and low. Yes, everyone I hate to admit it but I can get tired and low.

The last month has been so busy and my body and mind needed a break.

I am no good with time off, I had a list reeling around in my head. I find it hard to sit and do nothing. Okay I didn’t get up until 9am so I got my 8 hours, but once up it was go, go, go. As I am doing, I am thinking, I have to promote the petition, I have to write a blog, I have to wash the floors. I have to do a tax return. I made a list and it filled an A4 piece of paper. Lady Sobbing

I was overwhelmed with all the I had to do and tears flowed. Then I heard my son Finnbar’s voice in my head, suck them in Mum, so I suck them in. Then I get a message from my daughter Pippa, you okay Mum? As if she can feel my mental pain and sadness and Lady sobbing 2 you know what it is like once the tap opens, that is it I am afraid. The bladder is just too close to the eyes.

The light bulb moment…. I know my next Blog has to be the power of the mind and the importance of good quality sleep when you need your body to heal.

“When the immune system isn’t able to function at the perfect level, then there’s a risk that some of these rogue cancer cells will get through the net and start to cause trouble. … It’s very important that cancer patients learn to control and perfect the art of sleeping.”

Prof. Keith Scott-Mumby


I had a few wonderful days in London at the beginning of the month with my daughter and growing family and I can honestly say it was perfection, bar the lack of sleep. Oren, my grandson is a bundle of life from 5.30am, followed by Aurelia shortly afterwards and Grandma is a bundle of life after 5.30pm so it can be exhausting.

Spending time with them adds so much value to my life but I came back with a lingering cough and tired, my fault.

Then guess what alongside running my Shiatsu practice. I decide to help my partner John with house renovations. I went mad, cleaned out the greenhouse, planted so many seeds, washed windows, cut grass and hedges, painted doors and walls, you name it I did it, again my fault.

Then I did something rather silly, I decided to sand doors and boy did it irritate my cough, so for 4 nights I struggled to sleep, cough, cough, cough. So, I was feeling great and perfect until I choked on fine sand and got no sleep……………………. what a fool.

Life without sleep is like life without good red wine, desperate.

Seriously though sleep is so important when dealing with cancer.

We heal when we sleep so lack of sleep means lack of healing.

Then to add insult to injury have you ever noticed when the mind gets like this everything else is a problem, why won’t people take 5G seriously, why aren’t our politicians talking about its safety rather than its cost.

Why is it taken so long to get signatures for my petition, does no one care, why does everyone believe there is a cure in a pharmaceutical tablet. Why are we now living in a world where everyone is so busy no one gives a s*it, you get the picture?Upset

I guess you could say I was feeling very sorry for myself. Why?

I forgot I was important.

So, I did a wonderful Kundalini meditation and watched Dr. Habib Sadeghi discuss how emotions and thoughts affect our health.

Meditation came in my life, albeit badly when I started studying Shiatsu, 11 plus years ago.

I did it because I was told to, I found it difficult. I started meditating in earnest in 2016 when I got my diagnosis and I am now a big fan. It got me out of my despair last week.

Whenever you feel down get those earphones out and meditate, go on YouTube and search by your emotions and needs. If you can’t sleep, focus, feel sad whatever there is a meditation for you. If you feel stuck do a little shaking meditation.

It works 100%, however to get good at it like everything else it takes practice.

On that note I am going to take off my shoes and earth myself in this wonderful world while I still can and go and enjoy the sunshine. Then I am off out to search for a venue for an holistic cancer festival.

If you don’t believe negativity makes cancer grow read scientists have proven that negativity makes cancer grow inside the body.

I am so late, sorry.

White Rabbit

Sincere apologies to you all for not blogging for a few weeks, it has been none stop and finding the time was impossible as my new life style insists on 7 hours sleep. There are never enough hours in the day to achieve what I would like to.

As I have another busy week ahead of me this blog will contain information that people were keen to find out about after my talk in Cork.

So, I was asked about The Bill that I am petitioning against. I feel strongly that if this Bill is passed there will be no alternative route available to people with a diagnosis of cancer in Ireland.

This Bill will take away our freedom of choice.

From the very beginning I have said I do not have a cure for cancer, I believe no one does. My cure is changing the terrain of my body so the cancer dies off, then build up my immune system and enjoy life to the full.

The relevant part of the Bill that upsets me is: “Prohibition of certain advertisements 2. (1) No person shall take any part in the publication of any advertisement containing an offer to treat any person or provide any remedy for cancer, or any advice in connection with the treatment of cancer, or which suggests that a medical consultation, diagnosis, treatment or surgical operation is unnecessary for the treatment of cancer. (2) A person who contravenes subsection (1) shall be guilty of an offence. (3) A person who is guilty of an offence under this section shall be liable— (a) on summary conviction to a class A fine, or (b) on conviction on indictment, to a fine not exceeding €1,000,000 or to imprisonment for a term not exceeding 5 years or to both. “

(taken directly from the Bill on Oireachtas.ie)

No treatments and no advice.

My experience is having to beg alternative therapists to have anything to do with me when I mention my diagnosis of cancer.

This Bill intends to slam that door shut in my face and anyone else who favours the alternative route.

I would love to know where these people are who claim to have a cure for cancer because I for one would love to hear what they have to say and decide if I want to spend money with them or not.

If you feel as strongly as me please sign and share the petition and keep sharing.

I wrote to every TD in the country and got 3 replies, lolso if you would like freedom of choice when faced with a cancer diagnosis please write directly to your TD.

Now for something more on the fun side, the Festival we spoke about TREW FIELDS FESTIVAL. Wouldn’t it be just awesome to have this in Ireland.

Inspiring is how I would describe it. You can also find them on Facebook.

Unfortunately, the aforementioned purposed Bill would definitely put a stop to this festival ever happening in Ireland.

I plan to attend again this year, if you are going please let me know and we can meet up.

You asked for more information on this poultice

Please do not use this poultice without professional advice.

The DMSO stung like hell for me but we are all different and that is the key when choosing any treatment. I think DMSO may be banned?

Remember this blog is my journey only and should not be used for your treatment. Take professional advice always.

I have in fact stopped using this particular poultice for a while as I don’t want my tumor to break up quickly at present. In my opinion the terrain of my body is not quite ready yet. It can do without a tsunami.

This decision came about because I had my annual Bioresonance after speaking to you in Cork.

It turns out my drainage system is backing up a little so the focus for me for the next month is draining my liver, kidney, lymph’s, intestines etc. I have stopped all killing on my rife machine at present and the focus is on healing.

I started taken Solidago about a week ago until my herbs arrive and what a difference already. I had been badly constipated for a couple of days and since taken Solidago my bowel and urination are almost back to normal function.

The power of herbs and mother-earth.

Perhaps this is the time to mention some websites so you can do your own research.

Also, FB is a great source of information.

  • Cancer healing, the holistic approach.
  • Curing Cancer Naturally-True stories from real people.
  • Cancer Truth
  • The Truth about Cancer
  • How to starve Cancer
  • Breast Cancer Alternatives.

Remember, I am not advising you to go down my route. I am sharing my journey and research with you. I found it very hard to find alternatives in Ireland and it will be impossible if and when The Bill mentioned throughout my blog gets passed as law.

I have to finish by mentioning 5G, it would be wrong of me not to.

It is happening right now, here in Ireland. If you value your health and the health of future generations do your research. So much happening on Facebook.

Rife for Life.


“What if someone invented an electronic device that would destroy pathogens, bacteria, and even viruses with no toxic side effects? What if that same device could wipe out cancer by altering the cancer’s cellular environment or by killing cancer viruses with an electronic or ultra-sonic beam? That was accomplished years ago. The researcher who invented and perfected this device had an odd name, Royal Raymond Rife. But his associates and colleagues knew him as Roy Rife.” (author unknown)

I found this blog difficult, it was hard to recall and explain how I got to here. I only hope I can do the Rife world justice.

The best way I can begin to explain is, think about a glass being shattered by a really high-pitched voice.

How many times in your youth did you try to shatter a glass with your voice and succeed? I tried and failed only because I never hit that right note. Listen to Anthony Holland talk about shattering cancer with resonant frequencies,and find out what you were doing wrong or more importantly how we could be tackling cancer differently. If you open only one link on this blog please let it be this one.

I guess if you are anything like me it’s a “you have got to try it before you believe it scenario” All I can say is if you get the chance, try it.

I came across Rife whilst researching Diet and Bioresonance.  Be warned Dr. Raymond Rife is highly controversial, stay open-minded to the end.

During hours and hours of research most sites I visited agreed that the alkaline diet is based on the theory that eating certain foods can change the body’s acid levels (pH levels). Some suggest that changing the body’s pH levels can improve your health and even prevent or cure cancer. Most agree that there’s no way the foods you eat can alter the pH level of your blood but they can alter the pH of your saliva or urine because these are waste products. My understanding is that you could never eat enough food to impact the pH levels of your blood but rifing can help to achieve this.

So, my research had taken me from food to bioresonance, energy medicine and now rifing.

Rifing and Dr. Raymond Rife go hand in hand. Rife was on his way to a Nobel Prize in Medicine.

What happened?

There are so many conspiracy theories. Is it a case of no smoke without fire?


I see myself as a kind of the middle of the road kind of person. I try something with a closed mind and if I get a result, I open my mind to the possibilities of the sales pitch or in my case frequency pitch actually working. I couldn’t ignore my research around Rife so I finally bought my own Rife machine in 2017.

I now attempt on a daily or weekly basis to shatter my tumor with plasma. It is a continuous experiment for me. My problem is that instead of focusing on my cancer diagnosis I cure toothaches, headaches, constipation etc, etc I experiment on myself and anyone else who likes experimenting.

I am now 2 years and 7 months into my alternative treatment journey and I still believe 100% this is the route for me. Taking control of my own health is enabling me to live my life with no fear of the word cancer.

Trust me I am not ready to die; my fear is I may be a bit blasa about my diagnosis. Then again, I have zero faith in chemotherapy and radiation and the more I research the less respect I have for the pharmaceutical industry so what choice do I have?

Let us now Rife again. An interesting video I came across showing it is possible to destroy microorganisms with plasma was Rife-Bare Plasma.

For  those of you interested in research an interesting article. If you have no time to read the full article please go straight to conclusions.

If you are lucky enough to be in London on May 25th 2019 Nenah Sylver Nenah Sylver, PhD will present at the only 2019 European seminar,“Rife Therapy and Natural Approaches to Illness”

I know I am going to try hard to be there.

There are so many rife machines on the market but after a lot of research and recommendation I bought a Spooky2Since my purchase another great plasma has hit the market, Genesys.

I really do not have the expertise to recommend a machine but if I was starting all over again I would probably like the Genesys.

There is a frequency out there to match everything so I must mention that rife machines can be used for Lyme’s Disease and Morgellons.

I love my rife machine, I have used it to scan my body, detox and treat acute or chronic illnesses. I really enjoy experimenting with a lot of the beautiful healing frequencies. I learn something new and useful every time I use it

In the beginning at heavy detox stage I got tired. I couldn’t say if it was Spooky2, oxygen or the radical change of diet but I do know when it happened, I just had to have an early night. Early nights do not come easy to me but I am learning how important sleep is during the healing process.

So, until the next blog I hope I have opened your mind to the exciting world of Rife.

A man is but the product of his thoughts what he thinks, he becomes.

You are energy, and energy cannot be created or destroyed.

Energy just changes form.     

Rhonda Byrne

On Tuesday 30th August 2016 I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer and on Saturday 24th September 2016 I was having my first Bioresonance therapy..

I came across bioresonance after I emailed my circle of friends, who I knew were open to alternative treatments. Of all the therapies suggested bioresonance was the one that appealed to me the most.

My friend suggested I contact a person called Damian Wilkowski at D&D physical therapy clinic and after a conversation with Damian I knew this was an appointment that had to be made.

It was made perfectly clear to me from day one that bioresonance cannot diagnose, treat or cure cancer but can search for weak, toxic, underactive or overactive systems and organs in the body to strengthen them.

I still can’t explain the science behind bioresonance but then I can’t explain the science behind MRI’s and CT scans. I can only tell you it resonates with me more than drinking Gadolinium and radiation.

I may be the least techy person on the planet and have no scientific background but I have a passionate belief and years of experience with energy healing and the body’s ability to heal itself, with help of course depending on the illness.

I would now 100% recommend bioresonance as the first port of call for any health problems and 1000% recommend D&D Clinic  It is now MY annual health check.

My visits to Damian at D&D clinic were professional, helpful and totally educational. D&D clinic helped me beyond the call of duty. The bioresonance machine used at D&D is the Sensitiv Imago

Interestingly, Cancer Tutor suggests that bioresonance can support malignant tumors.

For those of you who like evidence based studies I came across this when researching but for me this article was important. Perhaps, it was because on my journey I had contact with Ann Devlin who features in the article. Ann practices in the U.K.

For those of you with an hour to spare an interesting video to watch

Now, let’s get back to those first all-important results from my very first Bio Resonance on the 24th September 2016.

The Bio Resonance showed up lots of various issues but I am going to cover only the results that blew me away and opened my mind up to one of the many possible causes of my breast cancer diagnosis. Below is only a small section of the report I received that day.

I didn't see it coming

So, my past possible infections were:

STREPTOCOCCUS LACTIS (GASTRIC WALL#TISSUE) IN REMISSION. Streptococcus lactis has a clear link with breast cancer.

HELICOBACTER PYLORI (DUODENUM WALL# TISSUE). Helicobacter Pylori also has clear links to breast cancer.

HERPESVIRUS (HEAD LONGITUDINAL SECTION). Guess what Herpesvirus could cause breast cancer.

My present infections back in September 2016 were also associated with breast cancer.



Just looking back at the results of my first Bio Resonance blows my mind, every virus I ever had or still had is linked to cancer.


I decided to include hidden possible infections effecting the organ from a distance because they show acid, liver, kidney, large intestine all filtering organs that needed attention.






For me Bio Resonance is now my first choice when unwell, for example, I was in London the beginning of April 2017 visiting my children when I became really ill. I arrived Friday, took to bed on Saturday and could not get out of it until Monday. It was only one of two times since I started my alternative journey that I thought I was dying. I just couldn’t move, I had a high temperature and felt awful. It was either a massive detox or the end. Luckily it wasn’t the end, the Bio Resonance I had when I returned home showed I had E. coli, a remission of papillomavirus and a benign tumor.

Now I was armed with so much more information, the next step was easy, find a way to kill the virus, make sure my filtering organs worked and build up my immune system.

I researched until my eyes ached and time and time again, I came across Dr. Rife technology. More on that in my next blog as for anyone new to bioresonance the above is enough to take in.

Now for the all important petition. Please sign and share.

Are we what we eat? I now know, I am.

“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” 


Can cancer be cured by diet alone?

There are lots of testimonials out there saying diet can cure cancer.

I personally would not like to depend on just a diet change to cure my cancer diagnosis. All I can say is changing my diet got my energy levels back to better than they ever were, my outlook on life changed and my thoughts on food will never be the same.

Changing my diet, radically in the first year helped my body to detox from years of overeating and abuse, boosted my immune system and got me on the road to recovery. It gave me the much-needed energy to enjoy life, work and research.

I now believe a change in diet is the number one thing to tackle when faced with a diagnosis of cancer. My food bibles now are The Art of Conscious Cooking, Healing with Whole Foods and Square One recipes.

Back in August 2016, I had days I was so tired I struggled to get out of bed.

As I previously mentioned the first few nights of research left me with two words oxygen and acid.

The oxygen was sorted now to tackle the acid.

What Google has to say is: Some studies have shown that acidic environments help cancer cells grow. So, the idea is that a diet high in alkaline foods (high pH) and low in acidic foods will raise the body’s pH levels (make the body more alkaline) and prevent or even cure cancer.Apr 2, 2018

The chart below was basically what I knew about acid/alkaline. Had I ever looked at the foods I ate? no. I bought the best I could afford and enjoyed it. I loved fatty, full-flavored food. I adored meat, in fact a meal was not a meal without meat. Yes, I ate lots of salads, some fruit and veg but loved potatoes, roast, boiled, mashed with lots and lots of butter, yum.

I thought my diet was great, 80% good, 20% naughty.  I loved food and wine, it was my God. I loved cooking and entertaining when it suited me. I wasn’t a fan of processed foods but enjoyed a good take away and loved eating out. I went through stages of sprouting and eating raw at various stages of my life but not on their own, as an accompaniment to the steak or lamb. I ate lots, too much and looking back was obsessed with food, it was my joy. I would eat lunch and an hour later I was planning dinner. I had never been on a diet in my life and never planned to. My 20% naughty was red wine and lots of chocolate. I converted to dark chocolate in my 50’s, not a couple of squares though. I could polish off a large bar of green and blacks in one sitting.

I rode a bike, danced and kept active so I thought I deserved a treat. What was I thinking?

I  never tested my Ph. Levels, I never gave them a thought.

When I did, I got a shock.


It was this article How Body pH Can Affect Your Energy Levels that got me testing my ph. levels. I tested them 3 or 4 times a day for months, until I was satisfied with the results. Nowadays I test them once or twice a week to ensure I am more alkaline than acidic.

My diet for the first year may seem a little harsh and impossible but honestly, I just missed my social life around food. As each day passed and my health and overall outlook improved it became easier and easier. The hardest thing for me was the criticism and comments about my weight loss, of which unfortunately, there were many.

So, are you ready?

Upon waking and on an empty stomach I had a glass of water with lemon and baking soda,  2 ginger root tablets and 2 Blockbuster tablets . Then wormwood and black-walnut taken with gentle iron . A cup of warm Graviola tea with a little honey added.

Breakfast was always organic fruit.

Lunch and dinner were always huge salads, all fruits, veg and nuts. Basically, I lived on fruit, veg and nuts for a whole year, either in a salad, a meal or a soup, if I was cold. I did not introduce juicing until the second year and then I followed a vegan diet and somewhere along the line the vegan changed to vegetarian.

Before my lunch I would have more wormwood and walnut with gentle iron, moringa and raw vegetables. With this meal I would also take Vitamin D3Vitamin K2, Vitamin C  and Magnesium.

Between meals I would drink dandelion tea and snack on nuts, fruit and raw vegetables, all organic.

Every day I included apricot-seeds, 10 a day split into 3 doses, I later read that these are more effective when taken with pineapple so I added this to my protocol.

Sometime during the day, I would make time for a 20-minute meditation which inevitably led to sleep. I was exhausted due to all the changes and my body was detoxing fast. Upon waking I had a glass of Flor Essence  which I later discovered was similar to essiac-tea.

I walked daily for a minimum of 20 minutes to keep my lymphatic system flowing.

With my evening meal I took 2 more blockbusters, moringa and raw vegetables and my daily dose of raw garlic ,5 to 6 cloves daily, sliced and left to sit for 15 minutes to release allicin.

Free evenings were spent researching with another cup of graviola tea with honey and a cup of apollo tea.

Before retiring I had my final drink of the night which was baking soda and honey remedy

All of the above were taken with some advice and researched by myself.

I stuck to the above for the first year and never touched sugar and I mean all sugar. I drank wine only when I started to eat out in year 2, to be honest it wasn’t until I was 60 in October 2018 that I drank again on a regular basis. I made the decision to celebrate hard and enjoy it. My celebrations started in September and ended in November, ouch…. but it was fun. Then of course Christmas came. So, In January of this year I upped my game and ate loads of greens and never drink on average more than a bottle of red wine a week.

If I were to feel unwell again the wine would go but for now, I am enjoying my guilty pleasure.


For those of you who believe cancer and diet are not related, I suggest you read the following book. The China Study

I never managed to read the whole book so if you are like me the 10 things you need to know are here.

If that is not convincing enough another great book linking cancer to food by our very own  Dr. John Kelly “Stop feeding your cancer” 

Look him up on FB.

It is a must read, if you don’t, the following is written word by word from the back cover of the book.

“The link between animal protein and cancer became global news with the publication of an international lab study a decade ago. The facts were startling: a diet rich in animal and dairy products was shown to stimulate cancer cell growth.

But conventional medical institutions apparently overlooked the obvious. Counteracting the disease by promoting an animal-protein-free diet could be a revolutionary step in cancer recovery.

Our visionary Dublin doctor choose to investigate the realities of the alternative approach to cancer treatment in a trial conducted with his own patients.

What he learned may change our view of cancer forever.”

Dr. Kelly has since retired, how I wish there were more Doctors like him.

So armed with the above information, a radical change of diet and oxygen covered, the decision was, what next?

The what next turned out to be Bio-Resonance.


Just make sure the farmer is 100% organic.

My favourite source of organic fruit and vegetables is Carraignamuc Cottage,delivered weekly to my door. I believe Phil has a weekly market at Pender’s Yard, Stonybatter, Niomh Olaf and Aughrim Town and expanding.

The quality of food and service is exceptional, at affordable prices.

plus-signA must add is, somewhere along the line of research I read that there was no way the foods you eat can alter the pH level of your blood. The body’s pH is a very tightly regulated system. If you change your diet, you may see changes in the pH of your saliva or urine because these are waste products, but there’s no way you could ever eat enough that it really impacts your blood.

So is that true, maybe, but I also read rifing and oxygen can impact the ph. of ones blood.  Rifing was and is still part of my protocol and I will cover the subject in a later Blog.

“Take a shower, wash off the day. Drink a glass of water.

Make the room dark. Lie down and close your eyes.
Notice the silence. Notice your heart. Still beating. Still fighting.

You made it, after all. You made it, another day.

And you can make it one more. 
You’re doing just fine.”

Healing choices are for each and every individual to decide on.

Before I begin recalling my alternative journey, I must stress I do not have a cure for cancer. What I do have is a determination, belief and will to find MY cure.


Ironically after so much research, I came across a wonderful website last week, that basically has all the information that took me 30 months to find. It is a fantastic read. I am not encouraging any of you to take my chosen route but for those of you who are researching and contemplating it, this website is brilliant, thekeystocancer.com

If you are at the beginning of your journey ask someone you know who has an interest in your health and the time to help with your research, be it the conventional or alternative route, or both.

I know when I started my journey it was difficult to take it all in and still is to this day

It is important for me to tell you that never once and I mean never once did any of the alternative therapists or people I met ever say they had a cure for cancer. The truth is that some of them treated me for nothing, yes, I said, nothing, no money.

You will find no anger from me going forward, hopefully. Maybe the odd rant about the Bill planned to prosecute any alternative therapists who claim they have a cure for cancer. I don’t think I can put that Bill to the back of my mind just yet, so please sign and share and share again. (You will find a link at the bottom of each blog page.)

I have tried and will continue to experiment with many different protocols. They all offered me something, some more than others. I am very open to experimentation. especially if it makes me feel good.

Some of the treatments were/are pleasurable, some, were/are challenging but not many. Lots are time-consuming and very few, awful.

My cancer was diagnosed in August 2016 and my alternative journey started on 19th September of the same year.

It will continue until my tumor has left my body. Which reminds me of one of the first books I read.

Book Carni Hazen

From my initial research which is mostly from memory, I used Google, YouTube, and books. As previously covered one of the biggest things that hit me first was, cancer cannot live where there is oxygen.

So, to me it was obvious, get oxygen quick, whilst I did more research.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy involves breathing oxygen in a pressurised chamber in which atmospheric pressure is raised up to three times higher than normal, so to me that means my lungs get 3 times more oxygen.

Do whatever you can to stop the cancer spreading, so on Monday 19th September 2016 I entered an oxygen chamber for the first time to attend  2 treatments a day for the next 5 days and then 1 treatment weekly.

I received oxygen for at least 18 months, maybe more.

I would recommend it highly and if you don’t trust me, trust the Doctors.

Cancer cannot thrive where there is oxygen,

Oxygen Deficiency and Disease
Dr. Otto Warburg Two-time Nobel Laureate
Winner of two Nobel Prizes for Cancer Research in the mid-1930’s.
“Cancer has only one prime cause. It is the replacement of normal oxygen respiration of the cells of the body by an anaerobic (i.e., oxygen-deficient) cell respiration”.

 Dr. F.M. Eugene Blasse Ph.D., author “Oxygen Therapy: It’s Foundation Aim  & Results”
“Oxidation Is the source of life. Its lack causes impaired health or disease, its cessation, death,”

Dr. Stephen Levin, Renowned Molecular Biologist, and Geneticist Author, Oxygen Deficiency: A Concomitant to All Degenerative Illness” “In all serious disease states we find a concomitant low oxygen state. Low oxygen in the body tissues is a sure indicator for disease… Hypoxia, or lack of oxygen in the tissues, is the fundamental cause for all degenerative disease.“Oxygen Is the source of life to all cells.”

Dr. John Muntz, Nutritional Scientist “Starved of oxygen the body will become ill, and if this persists, it will die. I doubt if there is an argument about that.

Dr. W. Spencer Way, from the Journal of the American Association of Physicians
“Insufficient oxygen means insufficient biological energy that can result in anything from mild fatigue to life-threatening disease. The link between insufficient oxygen and disease has now been firmly established”.

Dr. Harry Goldblatt, Journal of Experimental Medicine

“Lack of oxygen clearly plays a major role in causing cells to become cancerous.”

  Dr. Arthur C. Guyton, M.D., author “The Textbook on Medical Physiology”
“All chronic pain, suffering and diseases are caused by a lack of oxygen at the cell level.”

 Dr. Wendell Hendricks, Hendricks Research Foundation
“Cancer is a Condition within the body where the oxidation has become so depleted that the body cells have degenerated beyond physiological control. Similarly, the true cause of allergy is lowered oxidation process within the body, causing the affected individual to be sensitive to foreign substances entering the body. Only when the oxidation mechanism is restored to its original highest state of efficiency can the sensitivity be eliminated.”

Dr. Albert Wahl
“Simply put, disease Is due to a deficiency in the oxidation process of the body, leading to an accumulation of toxins. These toxins would ordinarily be burned in normal metabolic functioning.”

Dr. Parris M. Kidd, Ph.D. author, “Antioxidant Adaptation
“Oxygen plays a pivotal role in the proper functioning of the Immune system.”


My experience with oxygen was a success. How I came to that conclusion was simple. 3 months before I got my diagnosis, I was extremely breathless. Now I am back to doing whatever I please with breath to spare.

I met so many lovely people in the chamber with wonderful success stories.

I really enjoyed my time in the chamber, on with the headphones and zone out.The only downside I found with oxygen was I was tired for the first few months and very, very hungry. A small price to pay for great benefits.

Some weeks I actually miss it and I know if I had a chamber closer, spare time and extra cash, I would make it my weekly treat.

Now I rely on my very own Blood Oxygen Saturation & Heart Rate Monitor to check my oxygen levels, a beautiful gift from a wonderful person.

There are many articles written about HBOT, some glowing, some not so glowing.

I know it helped me greatly and I met a lot of people in the chamber who hold the same view as me.

It is also worth noting that HBOT can assist whilst undergoing chemotherapy and radiation. I believe this should be an add-on to conventional medicine to help with the healing process,  bloodjournal.org/content/126/23/1399

I am including a few interesting articles about Hyperbaric Oxygen as I am shocked that I never knew about this wonderful treatment up until September 2016.

My lesson learnt is I am a very shallow breather and it took a diagnosis of cancer to instil in me the importance of breathing.

Learn how to breath deeply now.

the first time his fingers touched the keys
the same way a soldier holds his breath
the first time his finger clicks the trigger.
We all have different reasons for forgetting to breathe.”

The results are in or so I thought so on Monday 19th September I met with the oncologist, who went through my treatment protocol.

When I asked about the results of my MRI and CT scan, she discovered they were not available to her yet. I questioned how my treatment was decided before all results were in and I was told it was irrelevant.

Irrelevant to whom, wow…alarm bells.


A team of individuals had decided a treatment plan without even knowing the full extent of my disease. I may be irrelevant to them but I am not irrelevant to me.

Even knowing this I decided I would still be open-minded and agreed to attend an appointment with a chemotherapy nurse who would explain procedures

My chemotherapy lesson consisted of a one hour talk with a nurse telling me I would receive the drugs Adriamycin and Cyclophosphamide every 2 weeks for 4 treatments. Seemingly the nausea is so bad I would have to inject another drug the following day to alleviate the sickness.

I would also have to have a heart echo to ensure my heart was healthy enough for the drugs. After researching the side effects of these drugs, I understood better.

Some side effects of Adriamycin and cardiac problems.

Some side effects of Cyclophosphamide.

Then for the next 8 weeks I would receive Taxol again with horrific side effects.

Here also is list of late and long-term effects of treatment.

Possible long-term side effects of chemotherapy.

I was concerned with the amount of toxicity planned for my body so I asked what I thought was a reasonable question “what are you planning on giving me to build up my immune system” the answer “nothing”

I tried to discuss diet but got little response.

You are what you eat

I left knowing 100% sure that all of the above drugs where never going to see the inside of my body.

I decided my body was a temple with a slight problem, not to be messed with.


I received an appointment for October 5th for an Echocardiogram which I kindly cancelled. It was my birthday.

I then received another appointment for October 21st again for an Echocardiogram which I again cancelled. My intuition was telling me to keep searching for as much information as I could.

I was sent an appointment for 27th October with Oncology, which I asked to defer, I was given an appointment for November 10th.

I attended this appointment with my daughter, who was definitely subjected to emotional blackmail, which I really didn’t appreciate. The only example I can think of now is “if it was my mother, I know what I would be telling her to do”. Who wants to hear that at such a difficult time? My poor daughter.

I made it very clear at this appointment that I would not be rushed into chemotherapy. I requested another Ultrasound as I had changed my diet, started oxygen therapy and rifing (more on that later).

I specifically told the oncologist that I would be having no more mammograms, so I was shocked that when I went to the hospital on Monday 28th November 2016 I was booked in for a mammogram and ultrasound.

I refused the mammogram and because of that my ultrasound was done with a lot less love. As I was having the ultrasound, I got a scolding for refusing the mammogram. I was actually told “your tumor is too big to fit on the scan”, in such a way as if now there you go, you refused a mammogram so I am going to scare you. I actually understood why I was treated like that but don’t have to appreciate it.

The staff at the hospital were really lovely until you disagreed with them and I really can’t paint that statement any other way. That was my experience.

On the 6th January 2017 I was called to the breast clinic and my sister Marian insisted on coming with me. I was met by a group of people the surgeon, a nurse and one other.

I was told I could have my mastectomy. I declined, although my tumor was not shrinking, I felt great. I wanted time to continue on my journey with the thousands of others who have done so before me.

I asked for a 6 monthly ultrasound to monitor my progress. I was offered one last ultrasound but then the hospital would need an outcome. I asked what that meant.

I was told I would then have to start chemotherapy or have surgery.

Wow.  I do not call that caring. So, there I had it, a last ultrasound was offered. After that any future requests for an ultrasound would be refused if I didn’t do as I was told.

On Monday 20th February 2017 at 10.15 am I had that last ultrasound and my final visit to the hospital.  With the exception of receiving my results I have had no communication from the hospital since.

My greatest memory from my hospital visits was not the kindness the majority of the staff showed me but unfortunately the 3 or 4 times I was told I would die if I did not  follow the conventional route.

When I requested all reports, my final ultrasound stated signed off.

OH, My final results were Invasive Ductal Carcinoma with features suggestive of grade 2 HER + ER- Node Positive.

I would like to add the following, I am hoping it will  help you to understand me better and continue to read my blog and sign my petition.

The only person I allow to critique this blog is my daughter and on first draft her comments were as follows.

You come across a bit angry and I think you can expand more on your points. –Remember your audience may or may not know anything or everything about this subject

 Be informative and a bit gentler.

 Also, you refer to death a lot and dying. Remember some people coming to this page may have just had their diagnosis and I think you can refer to it more gently. (of course, if you think I am wrong on this point ignore it. It is probably a bit hard for me too)

Dying is a fact of course, but don’t hammer it home, not sure everyone is completely comfortable with it and the aim of your blog is to get as many people interested in your alternative thoughts. You need to be enticing not frightening.

 Respect the readers. They are the reason you are writing this so write as if you are their friend. 

(Sorry for sharing Pippa, your comments are so helpful and correct and just what I would expect from the sweet, thoughtful young lady you are. I need to share them and explain myself)

You come across a bit angry and I think you can expand more on your points. –Remember your audience may or may not know anything or everything about this subject

I am angry. I am angry for the little things like my treatment was decided prior to all my results being available. I am angry that I was almost bullied into conventional treatment and threatened with death if I didn’t follow procedures. But most of all I am angry with a TD who is trying to take away my support, my life line, a TD with power to do so. So, I apologise to you, my readers and friends for coming across angry.

As for me knowing about this subject, let’s just say I am continuously learning.

Be informative and a bit gentler.

Going forward I will try to be a bit gentler. A blogger and writer I am not and the impetus I have for doing this is to share what I have learnt and to ensure a Bill I disagree with never gets passed.

Also, you refer to death a lot and dying. Remember some people coming to this page may have just had their diagnosis and I think you can refer to it more gently. (of course, if you think I am wrong on this point ignore it. It is probably a bit hard for me too)

Dying is a fact of course, but don’t hammer it home, not sure everyone is completely comfortable with it and the aim of your blog is to get as many people interested in your alternative thoughts. You need to be enticing not frightening.

I have thought about the above a lot and even the title I choose for this blog was “Will I live or will I die”.

I apologise to anyone it offends but trust me it needs to stay as is because death is inevitable.

The question you need to ask yourself here is, does cancer have to mean death?

Look at all the advertising around death and cancer and then visit the alternative sites. Whatever route you decide forget about dying, learn about detoxing, building up your immune system and healing your sick body.

Stay positive, be happy, do not be afraid. Fear and stress are killers.

I must also correct something very important here, the aim of this blog is not to get you interested in my alternative thoughts. The aim of this blog is to ensure the bill previously mentioned never gets passed so you always have the choice to have your own alternative thoughts.

Self-healing cannot be regulated and what cures one does not cure another.

Always ask for a second opinion and give yourself time to decide your path.

Find the cure that suits you, stay positive and enjoy life, it is a journey.

So, on a positive and less angry note I have a very caring young medical doctor I go to for blood tests. He will do all tests available to him and talks to me with such joy and compassion and long may he stay that way. Thank you.

Oh, forgot to answer the last comment.

Respect the readers. They are the reason you are writing this so write as if you are their friend. 

Now you are all my friends I want to ensure you that I respect each and every one of you, even those of you who disagree with me and I promise I will never prosecute you for your choices.

So as my friends I ask you to please sign and share the petition, only if you agree. We all need to choose what is right for us.

Please sign and share, share, share.

Sharing the News

Thank you

I decided to include this section to give you an idea of how hard it is to share a diagnosis with family.  It is so painful to watch your loved ones receive your bad news. Please, if you ever find yourself in this situation ask for support.

It was without a shadow of a doubt the hardest part of my journey to date.

From the start I had no intention of telling anyone about my diagnosis until I had the full results, completed my research and decided on the road I would take.

I was persuaded rightly or wrongly by the staff at the hospital that my children must be told.

On reflection, I may have waited. Looking back, I caused a lot of unnecessary pain.

I returned to London on Saturday the 3rd of September 2016 with my sister Barbara to tell my children and son-in-law my news. It was emotional, very emotional.

It almost felt as if I was telling them I was dying and had come to say goodbye.

We were all devastated.

Recalling the memory over 30 months on still makes me emotional, I was riddled with guilt. Just to look at my children and grandchild that weekend made me feel sad, guilty and for the first time in my life out of control of my situation.

The reason I want to mention this part of my journey is to acknowledge my sister, Barbara. I have a great need to say a huge thank you to her publicly. She was and always has been there for me when I need her.

She made an awful journey bearable and if I ever needed support, this was the time. She was there for me 100%. Thank you from the bottom of my heart Barbara. I will never, ever forget what you did that weekend. You may never know how truly grateful I was and will always be.

I also have to thank my children and son-in-law for that weekend, you made a very difficult time easier. Limoz, my favorite son-in-law even gave me a trendy short hair cut in preparation for my treatment.

I think it is fair to say this demonstrates that I was still open to conventional treatment at that time.

On a much lighter note if only everyone reacted like my sister Marian when I gave her the news. Her reaction still makes me laugh out loud. There she was in her utility room, muddling through dirty washing when I arrived and said: “sit down Marian I have something to tell you”. “No”, she said, “just tell me”.

“Okay,” I said, “I have been diagnosed with cancer”. There I was waiting for the tears and she says” oh thank God it was you. Someone had to get it and out of all of us, you will be grand. I would fall to pieces”.

For her faith in me, I will always be grateful. Everyone needs a Marian to keep it real.

So, Marian and Barbara were commissioned to tell my siblings only. They were under strict instructions to tell no one else. I personally didn’t care who knew but it was important to me to keep this news away from my elderly parents. They really did not need to know, until I knew what could happen.

No news is good news.

Over 2 years on and my parents now know. It became apparent that if I didn’t tell them, someone else would. I told them the diagnosis, my decision and what I had been doing and as far as they are concerned, I have cured myself and that is the way we leave it. To be honest after the first initial shock and a month of watching me like a hawk we never talk about it.

As a person who has a cancer diagnosis, I can say my experience of telling people my diagnosis has made me realise how fearful everyone is around the word cancer.

Fear does not help, what helps is to remain positive, do some research and make your own decisions with medical advice and a lot of research. If the news of a diagnosis of cancer is too much to bear get yourself a cancer buddy and ask them to research for you.

I would also like to thank all those great people out there who do not make me feel diseased when they hear my news. Thank you, especially all of you who joke with me. Laughter is medicine at its best. This journey is not easy and for anyone contemplating it, believe me it is lonely.

A special thanks must go to my children, my partner and my son-in -law. My children for being the best and my partner for putting up with me.

To Pippa, who is a pure lady, my greatest critique and advisor, who conceals her emotions and fears like a professional.

To Finnbar, who jokes with me totally inappropriately but is secretly concerned.

To Limoz, who is terrified of death and cannot speak about it. Your practical offers of help and support do not go unnoticed.

To John, who shows no emotion but supports me with all my decisions and who never gives up believing in me. Your support has been amazing and although I am not the most sentimental person in the world, I know, you know you are always appreciated.

I love you all.


Now since I have given you all an insight into a piece of my heart can you please sign and share, share and share again. My posts on FB only get a 3-hour window of opportunity every time I post them. Trust me this petition is not for me it is for the children and grandchildren of the world.
