WHEN TO GIVE UP?

Mouse

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
MY PLEA FOR HELP

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.

Tricia

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.

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.
