First post ...


First post …. Here’s some background info. I was diagnosed with breast cancer in January 2010, just after my 40th birthday. I can’t deny that it was a huge shock, but looking back there had been enough signs that I wasn’t well – I just wasn’t listening. And then I woke up. What has followed has been the most amazing journey, which I will gratefully be on for the rest of my life. 

I’m fascinated by how little I knew… particularly about nutrition. But I’ve also addressed 3 other important areas of my life – my mental, emotional and spiritual health. In taking responsibility the rewards have been huge. I’ve never been ‘weller’. I’ve cured myself of  chronic conditions, which I had lived with for many years (migraines, painful periods, gum disease to name a few).

The interesting thing is that I now know how I came to cancer. Years of stress, poor sleep, eating badly, drinking alcohol, being hard on myself, never saying ‘no'. It was a cumulative burden, and my body was deficient in every way. When it comes to cancer we are so unique, so individual ... we each have a different series of events which lead us here, and for me the key to my healing has been to retrace those steps, to re-evaluate what I know, to constantly question and research, and to see what resonates.

This blog is an effort to catalogue my journey and to share what I've learned, in the hope that it will plant a seed of interest in others so that they too can grow.

  1. So encouraging to hear your story. I agree – without mental/emotional healing there's little chance of recovering fully physically, and yet the mental and emotional can be so difficult to fix. Look forward to reading more from you.

  3. HI Scarlett,
    So far my results have all remained stable at 3.8. I believe that staying stable is just as important as reducing ctc's. How many tests have you had?

  4. No, at the moment, all I am doing is juicing, coffee enemas, and continuing with my 'diet'. I still take supplements, but a reduced amount (every now and again this includes taking sachets of liposomal vitamin C - approx 5000 mgs a day). I'm going to have another CTC test in the next month, and see if I need to tweak my protocol. How are you feeling? You've been very proactive.
