Cancer is NOT the problem

ShareTweet You might be wondering why I’ve come to the conclusion that cancer is not the problem. Certainly it’s an issue. And a bloody big one. But it’s not the actual problem. I believe cancer is in fact the consequence of the problem. Of course that begs the question ‘What then is the problem?’ As […]

This year of learning

ShareTweet I’ve learned a lot this year. About myself. About cancer. About treatment. And about what’s possible. I’ve learned I can come back from the ‘dead’. That a recurrence is not the end and that I don’t have to buy into the fear mindset out there.  That there is a ‘cure’ if I look inward […]

Don’t forget your fascia

ShareTweet So nobody ever told me you need to look after your scar tissue. At least not that I remember. And despite my degree where we covered anatomy in those wet labs, I never gave my fascia a second thought. That beautiful web of tissue that weaves its way around every nook and cranny in […]

Does the mind matter?

ShareTweet I received some feedback about a talk I gave recently. And while the large majority of people found the content of my talk enlightening (which I am thrilled about because this knowledge will go on to help even more people), there was someone who wasn’t too happy. The feedback went something like this: … […]

A Dog’s Life

ShareTweet So my daughter’s boyfriend has in recent months adopted this gorgeous little puppy called Guinevere. Tan in colour, rolls of skin, a gentle nature and those sad doggy eyes to match. She’s just beautiful and loads of fun along with her sister Boadacea. Last week the dynamic duo reached the required age to be […]

Reframing the picture

ShareTweet My husband heard a beautiful story the other day about a woman just about to embark on the trip of a lifetime to Paris. Fortunately, the leg she had broken just weeks earlier had healed just in time. But en-route, making her way through the airport terminal she tripped…. and succeeded in tearing all […]

Putting your mind on the job

ShareTweet These days I choose to make things easier for myself. Not just in the choices I make so I don’t push too hard. But also in the way I approach things. Simply put, I get my mind on the job. And it made such a difference through chemo. Putting your mind to it, mind […]

Stress spreads cancer

ShareTweet There’s some great stuff on Catalyst and the episode on stress and cancer is no exception. An interview with the Australian researchers who’ve worked out at least one of the ways in which stress helps cancer to spread. And there were a few things in particular that grabbed my attention. The first… The beautiful […]

I’d give my right arm…

ShareTweet And some people do. Their right arm. Or a part of their brain. Or a breast, or perhaps a leg or a prostate. For my uncle it’s his right lung. The loss of a significant part of ourselves to regain another chance at life is no small thing, is it. Another of those incredibly difficult […]

Hey Sugar

ShareTweet Sweet poison they call it. I haven’t read the book. But after viewing a youtube clip from the University of California, it’s got me thinking. Google Fat Chance: Fructose 2.0 and you’ll see what I mean. And I always know when one of my girls has overdosed on sugar. She becomes Dr Jekyll. A […]
