What Two Breast Cancer Healing Journeys Taught Me

The 7 Essentials System® and the Survive & Thrive: Conquering Breast Cancer with Conventional Treatments and Natural Medicine program is my life’s work punctuated by the healing stories of our fellow Breast Cancer Conquerors worldwide. They can also be YOUR story of hope, community, healing, and never fearing breast cancer again!

Today I will dig deep and share my personal story about getting breast cancer—twice. Since I was “the picture of health” and a breast cancer coach, the deep shame, disappointment, and fear were really tough. But I didn’t let it be the end of my story. I cried and cried—and then started researching, testing, discovering, and learning from experts. My education, self-care practice, and supporting women around the world will never end! To hear my whole story, in my own words, please take time to listen to this podcast episode. 

I have not kept my growth and change to myself. Breast Cancer Conqueror has metamorphosed from an ONLY natural medicine company to a company that supports women who choose and integrative approach. About 70% of my clients choose some sort of integrative protocol, and I firmly believe that it is the best way to heal. Never stop learning and growing!  

Top 10 Lessons That I Learned Throughout My Healing Journey

  1. Take your time. From the moment of diagnosis, there are many decisions to be made – no need to panic – your diagnosis is not like a heart attack. You have time to look at your various treatment options. 
  2. Understand what cancer is and what it is not. Less than 10% of breast cancers are genetic or passed down from your genealogy – the rest is epigenetic: That means that your lifestyle, diet, stress, environment, etc., have a huge impact on your body creating breast cancer. 
  3. Your body created cancer – your body can heal cancer. How you have lived your life so far, allowed cancer to show up. If your body created it, it can also heal it IF you give it what it needs. The Survive & Thrive Program is the perfect place to start!
  4. Healing is about transformation and change. Healing your emotional wounds and baggage is one of the most important steps. Your mind and thoughts affect your DNA, and your Immune System. Psycho-neuro-immunology and hundreds of studies have proven that over and over again. Boosting your mental health and healing your inner child are powerful tools you can use today.
  5. Learn how to get into the relaxation response every day.  Staying in the fight or flight mode increases cancer growth and metastasis. Stimulating your parasympathetic nervous system, the calming part of your nervous system, with meditation, tapping, and deep breathing will boost your healing and immune response. Your body cannot heal if it feels like it is being chased by a saber tooth tiger. 

Start making changes right now—but taking deep, slow, and relaxing breaths..innhalleee…exxhhalleee…Do this whenever stress starts brewing in your body.

  1. Visualization is a powerful tool.  Your cells are listening and responding to your thoughts. You can manifest healing energy.
  2. You ARE the Placebo. You must be 1,000% convinced that your body has all the chemistry it needs to heal. Learn how to be your placebo here
  3. Become metabolically flexible. In other words, train your body so that it does not depend only on glucose for energy. Check to make sure you are not insulin resistant. Lower your carb and sugar intake. Increase healthy fats.
  4. Keep moving your body. Researchers found that there were 72% fewer metastatic cancer cases in people who reported regularly exercising at a high intensity compared to those who did not engage in physical exercise.
  5. Test..test…test, and then assess. Never guess when it comes to your health. Become your own health detective with Your Lab Work tests. Our program also teaches you about specific unconventional tests that can help you monitor your progress. 

My BIGGEST Lesson: Taking a balanced and integrative approach is the BEST way to go! It’s not just about getting rid of the “lump” – it’s about a complete transformation – physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually! Working with Western AND Eastern doctors, traditional AND natural treatments tailored specifically for you is how you will survive and THRIVE!

Why Take an Integrative Approach To Breast Cancer?

Taking an integrative approach doesn’t just give you a treatment plan but rather a whole-self healing plan for life! Conventional cancer treatments focus on killing visible cancer. Natural medicine combined with lifestyle changes helps heal your body so that cancer never returns. Natural medicine and therapies can also make traditional therapies (such as chemo) even more effective and with fewer miserable side effects. My blog and podcast are packed with countless examples of how weaving traditional and natural medicines and treatments together provides optimal outcomes.

To give you a quick summary, here are a few salient cases for using an integrative breast cancer health approach:

  1. Drinking matcha tea fills your body with potent EGCG antioxidants that protect against free radicals causing cellular damage, giving it the nickname “Tumor Terminator.” 
  2. Eating cruciferous vegetables can reduce miserable menopausal symptoms caused by chemo and radiation.
  3. Taking TQ (Thymoquinone) supplements (Black Cumin Seed)  improves the outcomes of Adriamycin, Taxol, Taxotere, cyclophosphamide, and cisplatin in hormone receptor-positive and triple-negative breast cancer models. TQ also radiosensitizes ER+/PR+ breast cancer cells, thus increasing the treatment effects of radiotherapy.
  4. Healing Your Inner Child. The stress behind cancer development may often begin at a very early age when unresolved traumatic events occur. Therefore, if we had a hand in subconsciously creating disease in our bodies, we could invariably be part of healing and improving our health.

If you are like most women I talk to, you are probably confused, frustrated, and overwhelmed by all the information out there about preventing or healing breast cancer. That’s why I have invited world-class medical and integrative experts and fellow Breast Cancer Conquerors to share their experiences, insights, and answer your questions. All of this is packaged up in a way that you can easily digest at your speed. To guide you in taking an integrative approach, The Survive & Thrive: Conquering Breast Cancer with Conventional Treatments and Natural Medicine program’s recordings will help you curate an ACTION Plan of protocols for YOUR healing journey.

You can do this! You can make healthy changes daily and keep going even in the hardest times. Women before you are here to lift you up, just as you can do the same for the ones to come.

“I have seen a lot of information on natural healing for cancer, but this is the first program that I have participated in that addressed syncing natural healing with traditional (or Western) healing. I really like the idea of these approaches working synergistically together.” – Jamie, USA

“This program would help ANYONE at any stage. I have immersed myself in knowledge since my diagnosis but this program is everything wrapped up in a concise easy to understand package. Dr. V (and all the other integrative experts) teaches through love, and you can feel it. What an amazing program, and amazing community!” Jackie, USA

No matter where you are on your journey, Survive & Thrive: Conquering Breast Cancer with Conventional Treatments and Natural Medicine is for YOU!
