My experience with the importance of breathing and how you breathe, became crucial to my survival after being on my back for 8 weeks while waiting for my vertebrae to heal from the disintegration caused by the tumours in my spine and the resulting compression.  

When I was released from hospital, I had difficulty breathing due to fluid in the lungs, which is quite common for anyone who has spent a long time on their back. 

Oxy Rich is a liquid form of oxygen, and according to David Cuthbertson. 
"Harmful anaerobic bacteria and viruses cannot survive in the presence of oxygen" and "it is a broad spectrum bactericide, fungicide, antiviral, anti-yeast and antiparasitic solution"

This became one of the many natural products which became an essential building block to gradually restoring my health.

The awareness of the breath during meditation sessions, led me to be more aware of how I was breathing. With mindfulness, I became very aware of how differing emotions affected my breathing throughout the days and learnt to ‘catch’ myself when it changed to short, shallow breaths.

Learning pain meditation had the added benefit of making me more aware of my breath and how I was breathing.  To settle my restless mind, I would count my breaths, in and out.  To begin with, it was eight counts to breathe in slowly and 12 counts to breathe out slowly.  Over time, this gradually improved and extended my lung capacity and led the peak health I now enjoy with my breathing.

Surviving cancer when the diagnosis was NO Hope!

Here I stand broken and left for dead; this was my situation in 2006.

Trying to survive cancer is hard enough, but the no hope situation I had found myself in, almost had me believing that there was no way I could survive the crippling cancer in my body.

The medical PET scan showed the cancer had metastasized into the bones.  My vertebrae broke in two places, and the damage to the following parts of my body was evident.  C6, T1, T2, T3, T5, T6 and S1. Several right and left ribs, sternum etc etc.  You get the picture?

Repeatedly told by the medical professionals that I was going to die, and the nurses prompting me to get my affairs in order was mentally paralysing and crippling.

The ultimate betrayal though was yet to come.

One of the drugs I had been prescribed called Tamoxifen is listed on the US Government Toxicology website as a human carcinogen, it causes liver and uterine cancer and this tamoxifen salts is added to 10 other drug products.  In my blind belief I thought Doctors were there for my health and well being, not prescribing drugs, that would cause further health issues, and ultimately death.  I would like to quantify for you the No Hope situation for me, was when the Oncologist writes a letter that allows you to purchase a burial plot, which we did and we picked out a coffin.

Because I was so ill at the time, I didn't question the drugs they put me on.  I blindly trusted and respected the medical professionals - no questions asked.  The medical professionals instill gut wrenching fear in you, so you don't question the drugs and the medical treatments they prescribe you. You become a pawn in their agendas, and limited belief systems.

The promptings from my intuition, and having to learn to listen to my intuition, had me walking away from the medical system over nine years ago, and I have not sought medical advice or assistance for cancer since.  To be alive and thriving outside the medical system is what my story and journey is all about.  Hopefully I can inspire others to take absolute and full responsibility for yourself, and survive to live a long and happy fulfilling life.

I am a growing number of people who believe in Epigenetics or Holistic Healing of body, mind and spirit.  In a gentle nurturing environment, not one with synthetic drugs that make you feeling worse, not to mention the numerous side effects.

My story is about Living Life with Courage & Conviction, when there is so much negativity and fear surrounding cancer.
