Exploration, Discovery & Healing @ the Total Health Show 2013

On a lovely spring afternoon in Toronto, had the good fortune to spend it exploring the Total Health Show @ the Toronto convention centre- which is run by a not for profit and is an annual event that celebrates the holistic world and the plethora of mostly under the radar wisdom and wonder cultivated by all of us fellow brave healthy entrepreneurs, Dr’s, Scientists and practitioners… there is to be a farmer’s market, where we will stop for some early-day nourishment, a vendor-space where hopefully we will discover some interesting and innovative developments in the holistic-sphere. We decided against a table at this event for our intention-based jewelery company – enerCHI as in the last few years we have been focused more on the custom-wear aspect of the business than the craft=show- direct to consumer/mass- way of marketing. ) having said that there is some real excitement brewing around what potential gems we might find along our journey. Apologies it never came to fruition, but i was hoping to be able to video some of the proceedings, specifically some of the lecture series that features a variety of experts in a diverse manner of areas- specifically we are planning to be present for Nick Begich‘s seminar on HAARP ( for those of you who are not party to the realities of HAARP- it’s a pretty terrifying ongoing program run by the same peeps who are responsible for CHEMTRAILS… HAARP is short for The High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) and is an ionospheric research program jointly funded by the U.S. Air Force, the U.S. Navy, among other questionable cohorts. It’s a pretty scary proposition and while technically it is described: ”  its purpose is to analyze the ionosphere and investigate the potential for developing ionospheric enhancement technology for radio communications and surveillance. “ at an overall the truth is more deeply disturbing, and for those brave enough to step into the know i would suggest checking Nick’s documentary film ‘ Angels don’t play this HAARP’

Based on his best selling book, Dr. Nick Begich presents a compelling discussion of one of the important military advances of the United States government….digging even deeper into the truth behind HAARP will certainly lead you to a different view of the northern lights…check out:  http://www.theforbiddenknowledge.com/hardtruth/haarp_index.htm – Though we did not make it to the show in time to enjoy Nick’s wisdom, we are well acquainted with his work and highly recco. educating yourself as to the reality he presents within it.

Another terrifying yet enlightening experience in our day – was a film screening of Genetic Roulette

a real wake up call as to just how deep the corruption of our food chain truly is… unveiling a world most of us have never seen: exposing the bullying & deceit of the biotech industry, some of many of Monsanto’s strong arm tactics, the FDA’s fraudulent policies, & how the USDA adamantly ignores a growing health emergency- Jeffrey Smith’s mesmerizing film shines a bright light of hope that we can reclaim our health and our food systems
Watch it & be galvanized, inspired, and engaged.

post Total Health Show show roundup:

total health show

After gratefully being granted media passes on behalf of Ecocentric Guide, we took to exploring the holistic wellness space, that was the Total Health Show– there were exhibitors from every corner of the conscious business sphere it seemed, a holistic heaven for LOHAS lovers and local wellness-junkies alike. We started by mingling with some of the vendors whom were showcasing products that were most aligned with our mission for the day: which was to discover some new tools to implement into our healing experiment, or to obtain some treatments that would empower our current regime. We wandered past the booth taking “Auric Photography” capturing your energetic image by way of digital camera ( though i had to wonder how much of this can be enhanced in photoshop )… tasting our way through a plethora of gourmet…gluten free, vegan and raw food deliciousness- chemical free crackers, cookies and cakes– washing it down with Coconut water as we happily nourished our curiosity and hunger for some free and tasty healing.

Gisela + crew were representing Natural Healthcare.ca, giving away some sweet baskets full of goodies- alongside promoting their Bliss Passes, which offer incentives for ethical shopping across the country via rewards, discounts and other freebies. Of course a pioneer in eco-media, I am Always an advocate for peeps puttin’ out just another reason to support the sustainable business. She gifted us a lovely calendar, featuring gorgeous cultural paintings by local Artist, Sheena Singh and it serves to be said, despite our app-controlled lives- there is something old-school irreplaceable about taking pen to paper, to pencil in your plans.

acupunctureThe first exciting stop we made was at a booth, where a lovely Asian man named Dr. Howard, who was a practicing medical doctor in china for 20 years, was sharing his newest innovation and invention ” needle-less accupuncture” The product itself is an innovation in this modality as it offers a portable system by which to heal- ‘ The Health Recovery Chips’ – are a unique kit that includes all that is needed to administer a safe and needle-free form of accupuncture. What was being showcased was one of the 5 different kits available for purchase – Dr. Howard was offering sample 2 minute treatments for free- and various other opportunities for experiencing this modality- the top level treatment available was around $50 for a full 20 minutes, (  luckily our media passes granted us what seemed to be an extra measure of kindness and generosity throughout the day), and we were treated to a full-length treatment which was interesting to stay the least. The Health Recovery Chip Wellness and Vitality System’ – is what was being used for this particular treatment- ( the kit itself; included 5 stones nestled in a platter, 1 jade pressure point wand, tape, 1 bottle of Surface Liquid, tape for the stones to be affixed to the skin )  Accupuncture itself has only really been garnering the respect it deserves and gaining the popularity it needs to flourish and effect higher level healing, in the last 10 years. With a large Asian poplulation in Toronto, the opportunity to experience experts in this modality, is vast in this city. Typically acupuncture is administered via a strategically placed series of special needles, deliberately placed upon different points in the body- according to the individual’s unique energy flow ( or lack thereof ) and particular blockages. The end goal- is to unleash, un-hinder and promote the healthy flow of energy/CHI throughout the body- by balancing the meridians. Advocates for this healing practice will tell you- its ability to cure illness, is remarkable, often inexplicable considering there is no prescription for pills or pass off to big-pharma involved in this exchange. Practitioners of accupuncture are deeply knowledgeable on how the life force runs, not only through the body but through the universe itself, after all we are all part of the same mass of energy.) Here is a unique chart provided by the Shennon Group… http://www.shennonggroup.ca/acupuncture-guide.php

So taking this energetic knowledge as the axis point of this healing practice- it only makes sense that all you would really need to administer this art, is a skillfull understanding of the meridian points, an intuitive knowledge of the body and some tools by which to place upon the physical body- to draw, generate and move the energy itself- thus Needle-less Acupuncture, makes sense from an overall perspective. Dr. Howard was using his own invention, something never before seen in this field ( at least we had never seen it ! ) He had crafted a kit which included 6 hexagonal stones. Each engraved with a symbol, each the same size, colour and shape. Prior to treatment we were asked whether we had any problem areas or pain, My brother had 3 stones placed upon points in his spine, and i watched as Dr. Howard gingerly taped all full five stones- across my bare abdomen, sharing with me that ” The higher my tolerance, the hotter they would get” Tolerance in this case, means not your tolerance for pain, but the energetic level of the pain itself. Seeing as i have been – albeit recently decreasing, regularly experiencing abdominal pain, i excitedly obliged this rather odd seeming practice of placing shapes upon my stomach as i sat amidst a crowd of hundreds wandering by… While the stones themselves went to work – we got an interesting briefing on the history of the stones- while they were brown in colour- they were in fact, mostly made of Jade ( one of our favourite crystals/gemstones to work with when crafting our own healing tools ) So we were happy to learn that someone else was harnessing its healing properties to work on the energy within the body.

Jade is one of the most revered stones throughout history- often being referred to as a stone of wisdom, protection and purity- it also works to protect its wearer from harm-& foster harmony and alignment of the chakras. It has a profound ability to promote emotional release, especially of any sense of anger, irritability or negativity ( all emotions that would create blockage and discord within the meridian system ) On a physical level, jade supports the body’s filtration and elimination process, removing toxins, especially from the kidney and adrenal glands, balancing bodily fluids, and rebinding cellular systems on a deep foundational level.

Dr. Howard has been practicing chinese medicine in Toronto for 15 years, and he has just recently developed this new innovation in Acupuncture, offering an ancient modality a modern-esque twist on delivery, by integrating the profound healing properties of natural stone with the targeted energy centres that make up the unique matrix of Qi that sustains our physical bodies in this reality. The stones, Howard said would begin to feel hot, or rather your body would begin to feel increasingly h0t- as the stones pulled the energy from your pain body out. The physics of this experience was nothing short of fascinating as the stones themselves, just as Howard said they would- remained completely and utterly cold to the touch, yet under the taped hexagonal jade, our bodies began to burn… it started out as a warm sensation similar to placing a heating pad on the skin in targeted areas, and it began to build rather rapidly over the twenty minute period, eventually becoming akin to the sensation of rubbing on all too much A-535, vicks vapo rub or some other analgesic balm that causes your skin to burn. My brother lasted about 10 of the 20 minutes before needing to have the stones removed, his pain body quite large from years of chronic suffering- the heat below the treatment tools became too much to bare. I lifted my shirt and stared fascinatedly at my bare abdomen as it began to burn as well, similar to the feeling of being scalded by a hot iron brand, i imagine as i have never experienced that manner of burning, the sensation equates with that in my mind. Upon removal we were told that the burning sensation would continue for at least ten more minutes as the energy continued dispersing, providing healing to our overall auric field, our physical bodies and alignment in our meridians that- for both of us, was lacking due to illness, imbalance and pain. We walked away with smiles and sensation that we had just undergone something far more profound than we had realized, wondering if the burning itself was in fact a distraction from the underlying pain, not actually lessening it, but providing some ulterior measure of focus for the conscious mind to busy itself with… But indeed, just as Howard said, the pain itself had subsided, considerably and though the burning continued ( along with 5 growing red blotches on my tummy that looked like an allergic reaction ) all of that was but a small side effect- to a much larger measure of healing that took place at booth # ( ill insert booth here when i remember ) For those practitioners out there who are looking to add another level of integrative medicine to their clinics, or for individuals who have the investment dollars to acquire one of these Healing Kits- i would strongly recco. going in for a treatment, experiencing this amazing modality- live- and then making the investment to nourish your nature- by adding this to your arsenal.

Next on our journey we stopped in the centrepoint of this vast holistic- healing-wonderland, the wafting scent of artisanal food overtook our senses and the hunger for some nourishment gave us pause- at the food vendors. After taking stock of our options, we decided upon fueling ourselves- with arguably the best bit of cuisine available under the roof of the convention centre that day… In 2009 Ecocentric Guide discovered a wee little chocolate operation, at a Farmers market- a pedal powered-band of chocolatiers- that biked it’s baked goods and artisan chocolate around the city of Toronto, for years- delivering raw chocolate goodness to the sweet toothed masses… Those in the know, know that cacao has incredible healing properties in itself, the food of the gods, it was considered by many an ancient culture, especially Aztec and Mayan, which this ingenious Toronto operation- has based its business model around, ChocoSol, is a horizontal trading organization participating in trading networks that support economic production and growers in Mexico, as well as other regions (including local farmers). ( Another aspect of horizontal trade is passing on the best prices to networks, artisans and customers that show solidarity. ) Partnering with Suppliers in Oaxaca, Mexico, has enabled ChocoSol to bring the raw chocolate goodness for coming up on 5 years. This year it seems, they have rebranded, reinvented and are delivering an updated and expanded menu of Home-cooked delights. The lovely chefs, were hand=pressing organic purple corn grain into masa, and then hand-pressing it into vegan and gluten free tortillas, which were the base for some of the most amazing quesadilla creations- ever to grace the lips of a Nourished Warrior. Just, pure yum.

vrajaBellies full and hunger satiated, we thirstily made our way to each and every one of the Alkaline and ionized and otherwise enhanced water vendors- tasting the purity and empowered hydration offered by advancements in an ancient industry- water.  At the show that day, there was one table generously giving out free bottled water and we hunted it down like clue-finders in the amazing race to quench our thirst, at one point stopping to ask someone where they had retrieved their bottle- her answer being ” off yonder… follow your intuition”… and so we did, making our way to the back corner of the room- never finding the water, but instead intuitively stumbling upon something else much more intriguing… living Buddhas in our midst, the Nuns representing the ‘Buddha Maitreya’ brought Shambhala Healing Tools of sacred geometric meditation, healing meditation tools & music – their space was filled with crystal and giant copper pyramids, set up as an interactive experience. Chairs strategically placed around a copper pyramid, each with its own headset- resonating deeply meditative music, as you were told to sit, holding two ‘ Earth Etheric Weavers® ,or  Vajra Etheric Weavers,  – each about 2″ x 2″ x 20″ featuring long double terminated, symmetrical laboratory grown pure quartz to  provide a photon light source, neodymium rare earth magnets placed in the center of each crystal, exciting the photon light and being channeled by copper wire, which was wrapped around each crystal to “radiate out the light like a radio transmitter. Each wand also said to have radiated ‘the blessings of Buddha Maitreya,” According to the Nuns, The Etheric weavers are to be used by holding in the hand as a pendulum, it is said- when you put the Earth Etheric Weaver in a Pyramid or Metatron Pyramids such as we were sitting under, – that they heal not only you- but also the environment and Earth..working like generators that draw negative past and future karma, transforming it to become more aligned to the initiations for the nations and humanity. “pyramid

From their website: ” The Etheric field is God. It is the pulse and the matrix that holds everything together. Through your humility, you ask God to work through you, not to be in charge of you but to co-create with God. It is the intellect that causes separation and it is through the Etheric Field where the past, present and future the mind, emotions and the physical all come together and can be healed. “ ….Sitting under this pyramid, holding these wands, listening to the sounds of a deep and resonant hum…  according to the Nuns, provided us Soul Therapy. A most fascinating experience as we both sat, eyes closed, slipping in the midst of a crowd of many, into a realm beyond this space. In all honesty i likely could have sat there, peacefully, happily all day- the experience felt as if i was being fed a soul-level healing shift, while being encompassed by a protective energy, that at once felt subtly purifying. The experience itself lasted about 10 minutes, or so it seemed- in that transcendental state- it full well could have been more like an hour, a shift that is still taking place began in that chair, as i felt myself downloading light, becoming at once aware of my humanity, and my infinite nature- i was being given a message to move on, carrying with me the wisdom, and the hope that despite all that is stacked against us, against me in this life, be it illness, or poverty, or suffering or strife, i can hold fast to the inner knowing that this life is but a journey to something greater. An opportunity to evolve before the next level of existence, be it ascension, or re-birth karma, be it death before im old. I feel safe in knowing unequivocally- i can heal, me. The tools are everywhere, all around and every day becoming stronger. So it is my mission in this life, it is our mission in this life- as Nourished Warriors to share them with you, to empower you to Nourish Your Nature. Becoming bigger, better, brighter, bolder and move more brazenly towards your thriving.

original story in italics | updates in green

_____________________________

It’s been 16 days since i began this journey, and having made the move from the capsules i articulated previously, directly to an oil version of this treatment- i have noticed a considerable difference in my need for sleep, it’s as if the plant is re-stacking my DNA from a cellular level, eradicating anything unnatural or cultivated from synthetic means- in the entirety of my system…

Last wednesday i went for an ultrasound: i posted a video on the results here.

It was pretty shocking to say the least- to walk into the sonographer’s office and see that the view of my insides from the ultrasound machine- was completely CLEAR! … how could i have had an entire reproductive system, riddled with fibroids and follicles and an unidentified mass that was potentially cancerous- just 10 short days before that??? The ultrasound technician, in fact, was so impressed by the health of my uterus she complimented me on the photos in such a way that it seemed she might want to keep them as evidence of what natural medicine is capable of- I shared with her my experiment although not the nature of the medicine, and she was slightly shocked but definitely delighted to hear of another case in which a patient had cured themselves through natural means…During the ultrasound she seemed incredibly confused as to why i was even in her office at all, she quite literally could only see a view of a very healthy uterus, showing no signs of PCOS, no signs of a cyst, no signs of any abnormalities whatsoever, and i left her office with a sense of disbelief and profound relief- even while i still need to visit the specialist again on the 9th in order to receive the biopsy results, but from an ovarian and uterine standpoint i seem to be nothing if not vital, well, healthy and perfectly normal for a 32 year old woman.

This put a little bit of an unexpected twist on my plans to continue this series, and documenting the progression of healing which we originally thought would at least be as long as the wait until my next appointment as high-quality medicinal cannabis can typically take up to one month to build a cumulative effect in the body and build momentum enough to begin the eradication of cancer cells. 

as a vital sidebar here, it needs to be said, that all of this ( i.e the statements speaking to the success of cannabis use to treat disease  )  is subjective statement which is wholly dependant upon the individual, one’s holistic health status, the type of diagnosis, the stage and duration of disease in one’s body and whether or not one has been subject to any type of conventional treatment models- i.e chemotherapy, radiation, invasive surgeries and procedures and the host of other so-called traditional oncological ‘treatment’ protocols, ( which for critically ill patients unfortunately is more of a death sentence than a life saving prescription) cannabis can certainly improve the quality of life for all patients in all stages, immediately relieving some of the vicious symptoms resulting from the aforementioned side-effects of western medicine but for those who are undertaking a serious and time-sensitive, alternative approach to ‘cancer’ specifically-  the action of Cannabis and its ability to heal the body is categorically reliant upon 3 fundamental things 1- the current state of health 2- the timing of treatment and 3- the quality of the medicine*  ( *see updates below for additional information on this as well as more to follow in separate articles )

Having said that- at this juncture, there are currently alot of unanswered questions for me, were the doctors wrong? was there ever any suspected cancer to begin with? did they read the first ultrasound wrong? was he mistaken in thinking i had a giant cyst?       ( not even mentioning the immediate question- which is why a Dr. would even bring up the word ‘cancer’ without any diagnostic evidence to back it up..?

( UPDATE: this question that cropped up for me then, now certainly makes a whole lot more sense 4 years later, revising this article with profound knowledge gained around the ‘healthcare’ system as a whole ( from big pharma’s strangle-hold on the entire medical industrial complex to suppression of natural cures and alternative therapies to more nefarious goings-on such as false-diagnosis-for-profit ) the full scope of this truth is staggering ) Particularly revolting is the billion dollar ‘business of cancer’ … ( a highly organized monopoly inclusive of: Pharmaceutical companies, a system of charities who collect money for ‘research’, plus Medical Associations ( AMA etc. ) and a host of Federal agencies ( which vary by country but in the US would include the FDA etc. ) …to take on disclosing this breadth of understanding in entirety, requires several new instalments to this series, which are currently in-production- however; as a prelude, i would offer the following  for your consideration and to serve as a tool to further your own personal research-

1. Cancer doctors have a financial incentive to give you toxic chemotherapy treatments, even if you don’t have cancer {  See this article for information on the unravelling story of US Doctors, who have been facing prosecution for intentional false-diagnosis to push cytotoxic chemotherapy treatments } http://www.naturalnews.com/048394_chemotherapy_cancer_diagnosis_medical_fraud.html

2. The Cancer Industry is too prosperous to allow a cure the ‘cancer factory’ continues to be a multibillion dollar piggybank filling the pockets of the few, while countless patients suffer needlessly. Please visit this article for historic documentation, scientific facts on treatment, financial statistics and the truth about Physicians and the cancer factory } http://www.naturalnews.com/055697_cancer_industry_big_pharma_natural_cures.html

2b – among the plethora of often buried evidence scientific and otherwise- over the last 30 years alone- here are a few choice quotes around ‘standards of care’

  • Top doctors: “Chemotherapy, is one of dozens of procedures shown to ‘give no benefit’ a list was created by 11 top specialists, who were each asked to think of five prominent health-care treatments they felt provided little to no patient benefits; Academy of Medical Royal Colleges ( AMRC) said that “chemotherapy cannot cure terminal cancer, The treatment is ‘by its very nature toxic’ – Therefore, the combination of failing to achieve a response and causing toxicity can ‘do more harm than good.’ 
    http://www.naturalnews.com/055790_cancer_chemotherapy_ineffective_medicine.html
  • A 2004 study also found that cytotoxic chemotherapy does very little towards enhancing cancer survivors’ 5-year survival rates. Research, led by scientists from the Department of Radiation Oncology at the Northern Sydney Cancer Centre of the Royal North Shore Hospital, located in Sydney, Australia, raised serious questions about the actual efficacy of curative and adjuvant chemotherapies. What they found was that chemo only contributed 2.3 percent to the 5-year survival rate in adults, and in the U.S., that number dropped to 2.1 percent.
  • The AMRC urges doctors and patients to question whether or not particular treatments are necessary and while i am not a medical professional i certainly share the sentiment. The word ‘cure’ is rather a loaded term. Its very definition infers a restoration of health, a healing ‘ making well, whole, or right. ‘ I would pose to any readers whom are currently in the midst of dealing with ‘disease’ whether it is your own, or the illness of a loved one, to examine the current course of action being prescribed to ‘cure’ said illness, consider the statement which is very often made by those who are undergoing allopathic cancer treatment ‘ the cure is worse than the disease‘ – a statement which for those who have been subject to the abuses of the for-profit industry, must ring true. If you are on this page, reading these words, chances are that you are already of the mindset that these conventional methods are not serving the proposed purpose and have opened your mind just enough perhaps to google one of the keywords which led you here, which is the first step on the journey to true healing. In the age in which we live, information is a crucial currency to waking up and taking control over your own destiny. The truth is, that the truth is… terrifying, but beyond that terror is liberation. Beyond the fear that is instilled by every aspect of our programmed reality, is an understanding that your birth right is to thrive.

2c- it’s in the numbers:  

  • 17,435,275 = the number of deaths via chemotherapy since January 2000 – BIG PHARMA’S CHEMICAL WARFARE ON HUMANITY DWARFS THE NUMBER OF VICTIMS KILLED BY ALL WORLD WARS AND ACTS OF TERRORISM COMBINEDWhile drug companies profit billions, people are dying by the millions. For some real perspective on the numbers, visit the Big Pharma Death Clock- developed by the Health Ranger to statistically show the impact of those only concerned by their bottom line… http://www.pharmadeathclock.com
  • In America the reality is that 1 in 3 people will have cancer in their lifetime; a crazy number given that in your Grandparents time it was more like 1-15- the sickest part of this ( IMO ) is that patients are actually getting younger and younger.

( a personal experience sidebar: A member of my extended family, was diagnosed with testicular cancer at just 28, just a few years after he was married. He had all the benefits of a universal healthcare system at his disposal ( or rather-whatever poor excuse for care can actually be called ‘benefits’ under the OHIP i.e- the Ontario Health Insurance Program ) and 4 years later, many rounds of chemo and radiation later- he has had both of his testicles removed and i can only imagine the impact that this has had on his young marriage and their dreams for the future, even in a country where we are supposed to be blessed by government subsidized healthcare, even in a time where all of the information on alternative treatments is widely available, he is still now barely into his 30’s and has gone through far more poison and suffering than one should ever have to deal with at such a young age. The thing that shocked me the most is running into his mother the other day in the grocery store, inquiring as to his health- it came about in the conversation that testicular cancer has become ‘a young man’s disease’  equally shocking to me is the notion that this generation is speculated to be the first ever who potentially will be outlived by their parents. How is it that with all of the wisdom, all of the possibility, all of the potential for living a thriving life, that is available to us… We are dying before we reach middle age?! This is baffling and at once incredibly nauseating to me, knowing that for the most part these diseases are not only curable but preventable! Unfortunately, largely this vital knowledge reaches very few people due to a myriad of factors from controlled media perception to misinformation campaigns to disinformation agendas, and the root of much of the suffering and fallout from that traditional cancer ( and disease treatment in general ) is fear. plain and simple- fear. Manufactured fear which is seeded into the collective unconscious like a sleeper cell, awaiting activation- or more accurately in the case of so many patients- awaiting diagnosis. It is this fear which creates perhaps the biggest obstacle to natural healing- which was affirmed by my experience watching this young man turn his back on the cannabis solution that we offered – and instead following the fear-based protocols layed out by bigpharma funded oncologists… sadly this is a story which is all too common in the times in which we live. It is not unique and happens an uncalculable amount of times per day. Still every moment, the agenda washes your brain into believing that you have only the options set before you by those who line their pockets with your illness. The medical industrial complex is a fear factory with cancer as its primary boogey man. And the human side of that is that the so called ‘run for a cure’ has become a ‘run from the cure’

– back to the original documenting of my experience: i was speaking to the many questions which had at this juncture crept up into my consciousness- alongside the initial inquiry as to why the fuck a Dr. would even bring up the word ‘cancer’ during my first visit to him.  ( i understand of course that during an examination in which he discovered a large mass in my ovary- this would be the general course of action for his profession … however there is bedside manner amidst all else, isnt there? )…. And, might i add here- for those women like myself who are seeking answers for any issue related to their reproductive systems- please, please educate yourself prior to any appointments wherein you might face examination that includes a potential biopsy. Because what i went through, on the table that day was literally in the top 3 or so of acute painful experience. I refer to an unprecedented and unplanned for biopsy of my uterine lining, which he swore to me at the time ” wouldnt hurt a bit ”  ( how the fuck he could say that not having a uterus himself is beyond me! ) as he came towards me with 12 inch scissors and the nurse held my hand… what wasnt going to “hurt a bit” had me screaming “NOOOO, MOTHERFUCKER!!!!!” and in immediate sobbing tears from the pain. Little did i know, upon my later-research i discovered that such a procedure is meant to include pain medication &/or anaesthetic of some form, at the very least some lidocaine spray or even some forewarning; because my recollection of that experience will continue to be one of the worst medical experiences of my life. Again- For those ladies out there who are in the process of seeking medical answers for fibroids, PCOS, or any other issue which might garner a biopsy- please, please demand that they offer you something in the form of proper freezing. ) At the time i had been been in alot of pain for months and months and, perhaps showing signs of potential ‘disease’… and my mind was a spinning with questions… perhaps spurned on by the use of the word ‘tumor and cancer’ …

“Why are people terrified when they hear the word cancer? Because they know it [conventional cancer treatment] doesn’t work.” (Dr. Julian Whitaker, M.D. Founder, Whitaker Wellness Institute)

post- ultrasound and much introspection i wondered how i had gone from fibroids and giant ovarian masses and biopsies to what would inevitably become a clear pathology. given the general stock-answers on ‘efficacy’ and such, typically given by western medicine doctors’ it was a tough decision as to whether i would share with him the self-treatment regime i’d been undergoing, basing the extent in which i would share- upon his reaction to the ultrasound, and how he intends to account for the things which he told me ( or rather, filled my head with ) at my previous appointment… i truly wish i could take my little iPod into his office and record his explanation of the current state of the union that is my body- and in fact if there is a way to do this on the DL, spy-styles, i believe i will try to do so – even just so i can share the reality of how a western medicine doctor addresses his potential mistakes, or addresses inexplicable healing happening in the body of a patient whom was previously thought to house potential ‘cancerous cells’..

another important addition to this content, is to draw a correlation between ‘cancer’ and women’s issues such as uterine fibroids, PCOS etc. ( all of the above i had been at one time or another been supposedly ‘diagnosed with’ ) to speak to a common misconception about cancer; It is believed & very much portrayed as a ‘genetic’ disease. When it is in fact a metabolic disease. Let me say that clearly: Cancer is not a genetic disease it is a metabolic disease. Furthering the agenda of convincing you that cancer is caused by ‘genetic abnormalities’ is the supposed ‘research’ conducted for the pharmaceutical industry which serves the drug companies bottom line and their narrative very well. They want you to believe that a ‘cure’ needs to be based upon genetics, and thus more and more drugs need to be developed to match each individual’s genetic profile and specific ‘type of cancer’ ( this inaccurate, ill-conceived belief system gets them hard-  excitement around genetics has its roots in knowing that these drugs and medical treatments only make them rich vs. offer up cures to most cancers…a belief system that fuels the sick cycle referred to as ‘ cut poison burn‘ by filmmaker Wayne Chester in the documentary ‘cut poison burn’  ) They want you to stop asking why this poison cut burn protocol is the only approved treatment for cancer. Why is surgery, radiation and chemo the only medically advised avenue? These treatments do not cure cancer. They fuel sickness and fill pockets. The narrative they would have you believe does not involve you asking questions about where the ‘cancer research’ money goes. Why has the 4decadelong, so-called ‘war on cancer’ perpetually failed to produce any cures, let alone any results at all? Why hasn’t there been any new FDA approved therapies in 100 years?  These are the questions they don’t want you to ask, their narrative would have you stand ignorantly and complicit-ly by, never questioning while every single day thousands die.. 

Cancer, like all diseases- ( the very etymology of the word ‘dis’ – ease speaks volumes )  is a disease which is cured by balancing the body. By starving out cancer cells and detoxing any and everything that it depends on, from the body it is ‘cured’ What cancer thrives on is similar to what drives women’s conditions such as PCOS…Above normal levels of insulin in the blood stream can both drive hormonal instability that leads to issues such as PCOS and fibroids and at once it provides the conditions that cancer depends on to thrive. ( Cancer cells depend on glucose to survive and proliferate ) This is just one of the links between Cancer and conditions such as PCOS, fibroids etc. there are many parallels and correlations that can be drawn here, however my intention for this digression was originally to provide a basis for why i focused so much on ‘cancer’ in this article, my story, in actuality is about the journey to uncovering answers for my own reproductive symptoms. perhaps i will focus more on the link between these diseases in the future, for now i hope this has provided even some small measure of insight… )

In addition to that nourishing, inspiring and empowering update, i would also like to briefly share a little as to how i have been feeling during the last week of treatment. We made the executive decision to switch from raw, whole-plant capsules to straight oil(s); the medicine we are using is two-fold, A- a raw supercritical extract which is undecarboxylated, thus preserving the acid molecule of the dominant cannabinoids ( i.e CBDa and THCa ) using indica dominant high-CBD flowers and with a cold-process method, extracting the divine, healing nectar in a way that strives to retain a full spectrum therapeutic effect inclusive of a full entourage of cannabinoids, and critical medicinal terpene profile.  ( not to be confused with Rick Simpson oil which is a different process and produces a different high-THC end-product vs. the high CBD, anti-mutagenic, tumor-fighting product that i am using ) the medicine itself: is the sticky consistency of a highly resinous essential oil. with quite a powerful onset, meaning i begin to feel the effects within minutes of sucking the teeny pinpoint size dab from my finger tip…

perspective: this is an excerpt from a documentary ‘ride with Larry’ a former South Dakota Police Officer and 20 year Parkinson’s Sufferer. Symptoms include severe dyskinesia, tremors, speech loss etc… Aided by A Cannabis advocate and fellow Parkinson’s patient, Larry showcases the raw power of this plant medicine.

It is of vital importance to understand that regardless of the health concern you are facing, if you are seeking optimum medicinal benefit from Cannabis, you should not under any circumstances be smoking it. I have been taking small doses of this oil three times a day, ( as is a family member whom is using high CBD cannabis oil as a substitute for pharmaceutical pain medications…results to come.. ) …in brief discussion with this family member as to how we have been feeling- we both, at the same time, bursted out with the same sentence, ” it’s like it is reprogramming our DNA”… and that is almost precisely how it feels.. it’s as if the energy of the plant medicine, once inside you- embarks on a mission to re-arrange any and everything that is out of organic-order.. i like to think of it as “ physiological feng shui” – at a cellular level, this plant transforms all that is off-kilter, all that is skewed, all that has been rendered out of place by toxins, or free radicals or by years of mal-nourishment… it’s almost difficult to articulate this feeling of being ‘restacked from the inside out’- if i can muster up the words i will post a video describing this; But for those who cannot envision by way of my words, the energetic shift that i am eluding to here:

  • SKIN: I have noticed my skin clearing up, with juice cleanses, which i have been doing once or twice a month, for 4 days @ a time )  toxins leave the body by way of urine and by way of dermis- therefore you tend to notice blemishes or imperfections that crop up after sweaty workouts, or steam baths…anything that stimulates detoxification purge..  that said; the cannabis oil seems to be taking swift care of these blemishes, leaving me with a sort of glow that i never had before without makeup, or a post-orgasm flush ) … this discovery sparked what became Bodhi Blends®: the Nourished Warrior’s apothecary. Crafting bespoke alchemies featuring organic, raw, veganic and wildcrafted phyto-fuels.  Custom crafted Bodhi-care, high-vibration elixirs, handcrafted tinctures, antidotes & ambrosias. ( for more info on accessing or inquiring about Bodhi Blends please connect with me via this page )
  • DIET: as the cannabis re-arranges my homeostasis, and re-programs me from a cellular level, i feel better, i feel stronger,  Also i have been noticing that my hunger seems to be regulating itself, for years i had a very tumultuous relationship with food and with eating ( no doubt in part to the fact that i had an unrecognized eating disorder for most of my life)… but with the plant medicine – i am told that i must eat a hefty portion of protein at least once a day… i perceive this as being a gracious host to my body’s guest, and i have been working to ensure i ingest a significant amount of raw nuts between my protein shakes each day… Coupled with periods of raw juice cleansing and phyto-fuel supplementation- weight loss is supercharged as well. ( If you are seeking to lose weight at the same time as addressing health issues- i would suggest seeking out a holistic view of your overall wellbeing prior to undertaking any strategies. ‘Diets’ are a very complex and stereotype-driven subject, and more often than not, people, women especially find themselves falling into ‘diet-traps’ which unfortunately usually end up causing more harm than good and certainly aren’t something to be considering when dealing with any illness of any kind. ) My suggestion to anyone who is meeting health challenges is always going to be to begin with nutrition. Of course, this topic most certainly requires a novel-length discourse unto itself, but as a prelude, my recco. when considering treatment of any kind, is to begin with your diet. There are so many so-called disease which can be corrected using diet alone as a means to treatment. But, the protocols for this involve a re-education around food. ( as part of the Nourished Warrior’s mission to thriving, is partnering with people to teach ‘food as medicine’we are offering consulting and strategy for those seeking healing and more info can be found via this page )
  • REST:  I have also been sleeping alot more than usual, there was a time in my life, where i was near insomniac, although i considered it being an ‘intentional insomniac’,  because i had so much fire and so much drive that i would workout 3-4 hours per day at the gym, i would arrive home and spend the next 16 hours or so working – perhaps sleep an average of 3 or 4 hours, and get up to do it all again. I am no longer able to achieve this robotic-method of pushing myself into exhaustion, when the plant energy tells me i need to sleep- i sleep. this weekend i probably slept a total of 22 hours give or take, much more than usual for me- even as i have improved my schedule from years ago- i still strive to keep sleep last on my agenda ( despite being reminded continuously by my close friend who is a complete advocate for sleep as a cure-all medicine in itself )… with this improvement in my rest, i feel my body is better able to perform the transformation that it needs to, without taxing my reserves too much. I feel clearer on what my mission in this life is, and every day i get closer to uncovering some of the answers i have been seeking for so long, whether that’s how to build a sustainable business without compromising my heart or my integrity…or how to live consciously in a world that is imprisoned by suffering and deceit….facing these questions becomes easier. Insight arrives without the anxiety that came alongside truth for most of my life…. and for this gift-  I have to take a moment to thank the medicine for continuing to align me, from the inside out- as it re-organizes my DNA and equalizes my frequency, bringing me to a higher vibration, i evolve without any need for hours of meditation or days and days of fasting, or any other ancient or esoteric tool by way to achieve that higher level.. i simply find these states within. every moment is a blessing as i begin to vibrate higher, and rid myself one by one, of the toxins of my past, and the baggage from my body- the best part about this supplementation process is that  by taking this medicine, in this way, it’s just like another herbal supplement… none of the psychoactive THC-induced effects, it’s all CBD-vibes – which in essence makes me feel as if i am glowing from the inside out.  being fundamentally shifted to a higher frequency- the plant power works its magic and it feels like i am taking a tonic of pure-life… and as a willing co-creator, as a conscious witness to this… my heart heals from its previous- breaks-a plenty-and i am but am a willing co-conspirator, acting as the temple for the battle for optimal wellness. The Nourished Warrior will always prevail.
