Soooo inspired, I had to share!

by Julie on September 30, 2013

Oh hey there:) How are you?  I just had to pop in and say hi and share this inspiring info with you. This post marks the first time ever in over 2 years where there is no recipe! My apologies!  However, I think you will be glad you took a quick read anyways as you will probably be just as inspired as I am when I share what has me fired up lately!

This won’t take me long as I am on the last leg of my journey as an author of this alkaline cookbook that is due by Halloween! and I have to get right back at er!

But it’s going well.  I think I should be done on time even tho I’m not sure how many hours of sleep I’ll get in the next 30 days-eek!  I’m wondering if you are anything like me…never finished with anything til I run out of time!  Being such a perfectionist and an over achiever I always think that I can do more, write more, cook more,  or squeeze more in.  And I keep doing so until the clock strikes midnight.  I am yearning for the day that I will actually complete something early and be completely satisfied with it! It would be a miracle, really! And a lot less stressful too! I need to work on this.

Inspiring others is one of my top values! I love it when I have something to share with you that I truly think could help you to create change for yourself and for those around you, and that you perhaps feel empowered to continue the inspiration.  And just know I am sharing from the heart, from my passion and not because I am receiving any kind of benefit from doing so except the complete satisfaction spreading the word.

Anyways, this past week as part of my homework for this book I managed to fit in a few audio recordings from the Cure to Cancer Summit and it has my head spinning!  I just knew with 22 experts speaking on the subject of cancer in a holistic, alternative and integrative manner that I would get fired up!  Their energy is contagious and so is their frustration which is also a motivator to help people to understand how to be more proactive with their health and make different choices.

I was alerted to this amazing summit by Dr.Robert O.Young, Author of The pH Miracle, whom I receive newsletters from.,  He informed me that he was among the interviews.  I highly recommend listening to his talk as you will quickly learn a wealth of knowledge that he has condensed and honed.  With his experience in this field for over 20yrs I believe it is he has seen the amazing results of many, many clients who have completely taken charge of their health conditions and turned their serious diagnosis into success stories and are still living the lifestyle many years after being given only months to live.

I have a few points to share from his talk that you may find interesting:

• The average medical doctor dies at the age of 57!  (I mean no disrespect here. Doctors are amazing and they save thousands of lives every single day.  But when it comes to chronic illness and disease they only understand how to treat the symptoms and Not the cause.  What I understand is that choosing alternative treatments for most illness has proven to generate far better results than conventional medicine and is keeping people alive with a far better quality of health when it comes to cancer)

• In the mid 1900’s only 1 in 30 people were diagnosed with cancer. Today it’s 1 in every 2 people who are diagnosed with cancer!

• In the US there is $14M/minute spent on health care.  50% is spent during the last 5 years of life, with 90% spent on the last 30 days of life!  If they could just spend a portion of this on prevention and health education we could certainly turn these stats around, don’t you think?  And not to mention the billions of dollars spent that continue to be spent on the cure for cancer of which ‘they’ have not figured out while alternative therapies are finding 70-80%+ success in reversing cancer or placing people in remission.  It’s quite ludicrous.  And what’s worse is the billions of people who have no idea that there are other choices besides chemo and radiation who without any question believe that these are the best choices they have.  And on top of that, they are told that diet and lifestyle changes will have NO affect on their diagnosis!!    I hear this over and over again and it really gets me fired up!  It further inspires me to keep following my passion and sharing that which I have learned along this journey and continue to learn.

• Stress = Deficiency = Disease!  So many of us are so incredibly stressed or emotionally unstable, dealing with loss or turmoil in our lives.  If we could work on ways to cope and clear the air here (I know it’s not easy, but awareness is the first step to healing) we would improve our immune system tenfold!  Stress causes acidity in the body, so all the more reason to alkalize your lifestyle even if you are not experiencing symptoms of ill health–yet, as it will help you to avoid becoming a statistic.

Dr Young says “In a state of deficiency the body is stealing from itself to survive”.  It is robbing precious nutrients to buffer the acidity that we are ingesting/metabloizing or self creating within from the lifestyle we are living.  You need to be constantly replenishing to keep up in this stressful life that many of us lead along with the nutrient deficient foods that we consume from the nutrient deficient soil.  Good quality supplements are pretty much a given in order to keep up with our body’s demands if we want to remain optimally healthy.

There is so much more but this is the just of it.  There is tons more information along with suggestions and solutions to help get you back on track. There are lots of resources shared by many of the speakers to set you off in directions if you need.

If you are suffering from symptoms of disease I highly recommend that you take the time to learn and empower yourself with the knowledge and understanding of how you can change your journey with an alkaline lifestyle which will be the key to staying motivated.  If you have loved ones who are not well, do your best to help empower them. You won’t be able to convince them other wise no matter how sick they are. And they have to want to heal or it’s all one sided and is not usually effective.  They need to know that there is HOPE. And there sure is!

It was pertinent that I share today as I had realized that the free playbacks on all of the speakers expires at 12 noon on October 2nd.  So you have about 36 hrs to listen to a few and see if you are keen to learn more.  However, it is so worth it to upgrade and own the interviews for only 69.00 which is what I did.  You can then listen to them with family and friends and share further. The link once again is here.

I do hope this quick message today finds you well and that my inspiration becomes yours:)

I must get back to my project on hand but am looking forward to preparing some tasty recipes just for You, here on the blog. Getting back to sharing one recipe a week or bi-weekly (I’ll find a groove) with you in November will be a cinch compared to the marathon of recipes I have been cooking up and shooting lately!

Wish me luck finishing up this book! And may I be early:)

Have a great October and a cozy fall.  I will chat with you in November:)


ps. let me know if you listen to any interviews and share your thoughts below or recommendations. I hope to get to listen to them all but it won’t be until I have this book done as I can’t spare much time right now:)

Update: October 4th:  I Just watched this movie last night.  Wow!  I can’t even express how pertinent it is for us all to view this movie! Most of us can say we have someone in our circle who has cancer or who has not survived it. Watching this show empowers us with knowledge we can use for prevention for ourselves or for healing if we or anyone we love needs it. Make time for this one, it will change your life or someone elses:)

With all due respect, I think you might want to check your statistics. The likely reason that fewer people were diagnosed with cancer in the mid 1950’s is because people died much earlier of what is now more treatable diseases: diabetes, heart disease, TB, pneumonia, etc. They just didn’t live long enough to develop cancer. And our diagnostic techniques are much improved. For instance, mammography was not available in the mid 1950’s and I don’t think Pap smears were either.

The statistic that 1 out of every 2 people is diagnosed with cancer is just plain wrong. Go the National Cancer Institute website. They have the incidence of cancer from 2006-2010 and it is just over 400 per 100,000 people. That includes ALL cancers, even skin cancer. This is less than 1/2 of a percent. Now even if the NCI is skewing the figures for its own purposes (doubtful, but let’s assume) that is a BIG difference from 50%.

I am a cancer survivor. I’m interested in being as healthy as I can to live as long as I can. But it is a disservice to post very incorrect information.

Hi Antonia, thank you for your kind comments. I felt comfortable relaying his thoughts and his stats because they happen to be true, unfortunately in my circle of friends & family- you can’t help others if they don’t want to help themselves in a holistic way– 1 in pretty much every two people has cancer or has had cancer-it’s frightening to see! I also don’t feel like I can go with the cancer institute stats as they are biased and would reflect only what they want us to hear, in my opinion. The reality is that among people I know and see the stat is much more serious than they declare even if 1 in 2 is a little high. The bottom line is that it is an epidemic of massive proportion and we must decide to let go of the notion that ‘they’ will find a cure with all the billions of dollars that all these well meaning folks raise for the cause. Cancer is big business even tho they don’t want us to really know that- they are in it to help us is what they want us to believe. It may never end as it is a very lucrative business for the players involved.
As for the fewer folks dying in the 50’s of cancer, it’s pretty much related to our food supply chain. Processed foods were just beginning to be produced and pesticides were also being introduced which are a direct result of the increase in cancer rates. Yes many chronic diseases can become cancer, this is true, and our medical system has found ways to keep people alive longer but the sad part is that although they are living longer with these somewhat treatable diseases, their quality of life is drastically reduced. We are living longer but many with limping bodies.
I am so happy to hear you have overcome your diagnosis. I truly appreciate your comments.

I am in total agreement with you about the effect of nutrition on health. Poor nutrition has an enormous effect on wellness and disease, including cancer.

That said, I think you need to be much more careful about how you marshal information to demonstrate that importance. For instance you say, “I felt comfortable relaying his thoughts and his stats because they happen to be true in my circle of influence– 1 in pretty much every two people has cancer or has had cancer-it’s frightening to see!” If you think about this statement, it would seem to imply that those people whom you influence and who influence you — presumably those who use good nutritional habits (they are influenced by you) — have a very high rate of cancer! I don’t think that is something that would actually support your argument and shows the fallacy of confusing CORRELATION with CAUSATION.

Secondly, you state, “I also don’t feel like I can go with the cancer institute stats as they are biased and would reflect only what they want us to hear, in my opinion.” Again, be careful. If cancer is “big business”, it would seem logical that the NCI would want to show that cancer is very, very prevalent — say 1 in 2 people as you state — rather than less than 1 person in 100 as the data shows. They would want to show this as a gigantic problem (and it is not a small one, don’t get me wrong) so that they could gain more funding, etc. However, that is not what their statistics show. So, something is not right with this argument.

It would be a shame to have your good position about the importance of eating well, nutrition, etc. be so under cut by a lack of critical thinking.

Antonia, again Thank you kindly for your comments:)

As you can see I am under deadline and was not clear here – I should NOT have said ‘my circle of influence’- it’s more my circle of family and friends & acquaintances. And you probably well know that these are the people who are the most difficult to share with and inspire as they don’t see you as an expert because they are too close to you and they know you as your previous title, a designer in my case, not a health practitioner with years and years of experience. I was told in nutrition school not to expect to help my friends and family!! except for my immediate family. I will edit tho this so I can be more clear. Thank you.

As for the cancer stats, what I see is that the stats have to reflect that they ARE helping people and that their treatment works so that they can sell it!! and make people believe that they will be helped! Only those of us that have woken up to the ‘big business’ of cancer will look at it from the perspective of a ‘failing business’ with stats that they report but we know better and that the stats have most likely been skewed. Does this make sense for you? Sorry if I am not concise here.

I appreciate you looking out for me. It is a bit of a dicey playground to have ventured into and I don’t do it often but after listening to the speakers I couldn’t contain myself and wanted to share. I’m hoping that readers will understand my viewpoint without getting into a frenzy here.
