You Are Going to Die - Now What?

cancer
When we hear the word 'cancer' something happens to us. It may feel like we got kicked in the stomach or our heart skips a beat. We react in fear whenever someone we care about receives that diagnosis.

That happened to me decades ago.  The doctor told me that the only possibility I would have of living more than a year would be to have a total hysterectomy.  Although I was very sick and struggling with a lot of pain and discomfort, I knew in my heart that I was born to be a mom and that couldn't happen if I didn't have the working parts.

As a young woman who had zero knowledge about cancer and no idea what I could possibly do to win this battle, I told my doctor "No, I won't accept that.  I am going to walk in here pregnant one day."

At that point, the doctor got extremely angry and almost spit at me when he shouted, "Then, lady, go home.....suffer....and die!"

Overwhelmed, nervous, and scared but determined to prove him wrong, I left his office and began to cry. Now what?

At the time my husband and I were living in a small town where everybody knew everything about everybody.......so I was not surprised when a woman ran into me in the grocery store and told me that she heard I was sick.  She invited me to a nutritional meeting at her house in hopes that I could be helped.

I almost laughed at her.  How ridiculous.  I had visions of a weird woman trying to sell me some useless products but out of kindness to my neighbor and a wee bit of curiosity told her I would attend.


That decision changed my life forever  

By the end of the evening, I knew more about how the body functions than I ever learned in school.  I learned that the body has the ability to heal itself if given the proper tools.  I went there expecting to come home emptyhanded but instead came home with a bag of HOPE.  At this point, I had nothing to lose and received hope that the doctors never gave me during the years it took them to figure out why I was so ill.
death or life

I also walked away from that meeting with the satisfaction that if I did not get results, my money would be refunded.  I knew my husband could not argue with that.

Within three days, I felt better than I had in years.  I wrote the nutritionist a note with the words "THANK YOU" written about 100 times.  

Besides cancer, I had a bleeding ulcer, I was crippled with rheumatoid arthritis, suffered from daily migraines, had no energy, was losing my hair and that is just to name a few problems.

HealthMy symptoms and problems started to leave rapidly and every day I woke with new hope and anticipation that the words would be fulfilled that I spoke to the doctor -- I would have a baby.

I took several courses in nutrition, became certified as a symptomologist and health coach and was able to help countless people in similar circumstances on the journey to optimum health.

Fourteen years later, I returned to that doctor's office. Read the full story here of what happened when the doctor was forced to tell me I was pregnant.  Oh.....and by the way, I haven't even had a cold or the flu in all those years.  Waking up healthy and energetic every single day is something I will be forever grateful for and I share it with as many people as I can.

My blogging challenge for this month's Secret Subject Swap was:  Tell us about someone who is not a member of your family who has had an impact on your life.  This was a no-brainer because this angel of a woman, over 40 years ago, introduced me to living a life healthy and whole.  As a result, I have helped several hundred people do the same. This became and has remained my passion for decades.  I am as excited to share my knowledge about this today as I was 40 years ago.  

I continue to offer the same guarantee that was offered to me.  I give people hope and a money-back guarantee.  It has never failed to amaze me how one simple meeting changed my life and the lives of hundreds of others -- forever.

HOPE
