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:)
