Cancer returns because treating cancer typically does not resolve the reasons for the cancer

Cancer returns because often the treatments for cancer spread the cancer.

Cancer returns because your MIND could be making you sick or believes you want to be sick.

Cancer Treatment Does Not Resolve the Reasons for the Cancer

German scientist and physician R.G. Hamer, founder of Germanic New Medicine, did considerable research in the field of psychosomatic cancer therapy. He examined some 20,000 cancer patients with all types of cancer and discovered that every cancer in the body has a different emotional cause. He believed that cancer occurs when an individual suppresses for long periods toxic negative emotions (primarily anger, hate, resentment and grief). This creates cell changes within the body leading to cancer.  There is a strong correlation between emotional patterns and the progression of cancer.

     “Cancer does not begin in the body; cancer begins in the brain  R.G.Hamer

The power of repressed emotions, anger, and resentment as well as a lack of self-love is not to be overlooked in the creating and healing of our cancer. Emotional challenges can develop into physical ones. Emotions not expressed in words or actions find expression in physical ailments.

When I discuss the past with my clients, there is always the ‘ah-ha’ moment when he or she looks at me and says “yep, that’s me”, and this applies to cancers across the board. So much of healing comes from inside, by healing past hurts. It is therefore critical to uncover and release these toxic negative emotions (or relationships) in order to heal  and reduce the risk of the return of cancer.

There are many ways to heal the mind. EFT tapping, EMDR, psychotherapy, the Emotion Code and the Healing Code are a few suggestions.

           Epstein Barr Reactivation and Cancer

Scientists now know how viruses such as Epstein Barr (EBV) reprogram healthy cells into cancer cells. It has become clear that EBV is involved with most cancers, especially for those who have impaired immune system (if you have cancer, that is likely the case). It seems that a protein component of the virus itself (Latent Membrane Protein 2A) promotes the development of cancer.[i] EBV infects the cell-signally mechanism of B cells. As a result, these cells have a greater chance of transforming into cancer cells.[ii]   

Thankfully, more and more oncologists are now testing for EBV reactivation. If yours has not, you might request it and follow the recommendations on my EBV page.

Cancer Treatments Spread Cancer

Cancer Surgery

Although surgical removal of tumors can reduce tumor load, it has long been acknowledged that the surgery itself may precipitate or accelerate tumor recurrence.

Cancer surgery can be curative in some cases, but other times it can actually activate tiny, distant tumors that had been held in check by the immune system. (Note: biopsies can also spread cancerous cells). In many cases micrometastases from a primary tumor have traveled long before that tumor was detected.

Therefore when your surgeon says “We got it all”, that might not be the case.

    “Surgery promotes the growth of micrometastatic and residual disease.”[vii]

Metastatic cancer cells that leave the primary tumor can form clinically undetectable micrometastases at distant sites. A study published in Science Translational Medicine found that “About 35% of women diagnosed with breast cancer already have thousands of micrometastases, but only half of them eventually develop metastatic, life-threatening cancer.”[iii] In those who do not go on to develop metastatic breast cancer, the body’s cell-killing white blood cells known as CD8+T cells have been able to eliminate the cancerous cells.  

The researchers found that “surgical wounding”, either through biopsy or surgery, can promote the growth of these metastasized cancer cells. The scientists labeled this as “surgery-driven interruption of dormancy in breast cancer.”[iv]They found that surgical wounding triggers a substantial increase in the outgrowth of previously immunologically restricted tumors. Their results indicate that systemic inflammation initiated as part of the wound-healing process contributes to distant recurrence.

The research, performed at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, Department of Surgery, concluded that “Surgery which is intended to be a curative option to remove and reduce tumor mass, can paradoxically also augment development of metastases.”[vi]

As a cancer and wellness coach, I can not advocate for taking damaging NSAIDS or aspirin used in the study (aspirin being the lesser of the two evils, but taken routinely can damage the stomach lining). There are many non-toxic, safer ways to target inflammation and help prevent the immune system from letting down its anti-cancer guard (such as curcumin, but a comprehensive protocol would be optimal).

 Chemotherapy and Radiotherapy

While doctors often recommend chemo and radiation to target stray cancer cells, they are toxic to healthy cells. Further, increasing evidence suggests that chemotherapy and radiation can promote cancer, fueling metastasis and making malignant cancer stem cells (CSCs) more aggressive.[viii]

Cancer stem cells are virtually resistant to chemo and radiation, and are often responsible for drug resistance, tumor recurrence, and the progression of cancer.

Normal stem cells are capable of self-renewal and multi-differentiation. Cancer stem cells are no different. They have the ability to reconstitute tumors and proliferate slowly. Cancer recurrence and progression are often due to the fact that therapies are aimed at the tumor bulk without targeting CSCs. [ix]  (For more information, including recommendations for targeting CSCs, see my articles on CSCs, links to which are in the footnotes below).

The Mind is the Healer, The Mind is the Killer   

No matter what you believe in, know this — the mind is powerful.

Having faith in your chosen therapy is very, very important. Whether it is chemo, radiation or any of the plethora of holistic remedies, you must believe in it and do it 100%. If you allow fear to get the better of you, if you are in a state of panic, it is almost impossible to make good choices. Importantly, if you remain in a state of panic, it will not matter what therapy you choose, the cancer may win.

The worst scenario is when there is doubt and becoming overwhelmed by all the choices. Choose something and just DO IT. People who jump from one thing to another just end up in a perpetual state of anxiety, and the result is rarely good.

The late Dr. Nicolas Gonzalez wrote an excellent article Four Reasons Why Cancer Patients Routinely Die. He spoke about how panic, inability to make a decision, the Myth of Authority, and the Myth of Credentials make it very difficult to survive.[x] I cannot stress how important it is to choose a treatment plan and believe in it.   

        “The Mind is the Healer, The Mind is the Killer”  Ze’ev Kolman  

The mind is more powerful than the body. The cancer may return because the mind believes you want to be sick.

The Mind is the Healer the Mind is the KillerHealer Ze’ev Kolman wrote the book, The Mind is the Healer, The Mind is the Killer. In it he details how the mind can heal you and how the mind can destroy you. Everything you think, say, and write makes a difference in your healing. Say and think only positive thoughts, affirm that you are happy, healthy, and worthy of love.

Even cancer lingo can hinder life. For example, the word ‘remission’ implies you are expecting the cancer to return. When you focus on recurrence, cancer has a better chance to revisit you. When you believe you can heal, or  have healed, you have a better chance of doing so. Conversely, if you believe you will not survive, likely you will not.

There are many reasons why cancer returns. Cancer is not a battle, we don’t ‘fight’ cancer or conquer it.  We heal from it. We make the necessary changes and correct the imbalances to alter the terrain to one inhospitable to cancer. 

As Albert Einstein so correctly said, you can’t keep doing the same things and expect different results. Cleaning up our diet, detoxifying, and avoiding cancer-promoting substances and activities is critical. However, it is not always about what you are eating, but what is eating you. Emotional toxins, fear, and past traumas are often the issue and can be the biggest hurdle.

So what can you do about your mind, CSCs and mircomets from surgery? There are plenty of supplements and foods that improve immune function and target cancerous cells. Healers and therapists can help with the traumas (see the suggestions above). If you would like to discuss your options to reduce the risk of your cancer returning, please request a consult.

In your everlasting good health,

Healing Cancer Naturally: Elyn’s Potions and Motions

In Cancer, Energy Healers, Healing Cancer Naturally on October 16, 2015 at 8:42 am

Working at my desk, I suddenly get the urge to feel under my arm—the lump. Distinct and concerning, I have my husband feel it too. Round two begins, September, 2014.

While my first instinct was to decline the biopsy, I decided that maybe I did need to know, that maybe it would help me to know how aggressive I needed to be in resolving the ‘situation’. Plus, without the biopsy, I am told, there was no way to know if this was a new cancer or recurrence (new cancer at stage one vs recurrence at stage three–but as it turns out, the biopsy was inconclusive) I was also inclined to decline the surgery, knowing this was not a good option (note to self—go with your gut in the future, it is smarter than the brain).

My surgeon agreed that opting out was a very good option. While it does seem like common sense that the removal of cancerous lymph nodes would improve survival rates, the evidence shows this is not the case and it causes far too much harm, further damaging an already sluggish lymphatic system—which can lead to lymphedema and more cancer. But then in further discussions, he said he could just remove that tiny spot, no need to put me to sleep, and that perhaps removal would help me sleep as I am the type of person who will remain awake, thinking, and thinking.

As a family, we had much on our plate, so heading off to Germany or Mexico right then didn’t seem to be the best option (albeit a good one); we considered holding off until February when the timing was better. Then for some bizarre reason (okay, I started to doubt my healing plan). I decided I would have the surgery (big mistake). To make a long story short, in November my surgeon removed ten nodes (note to all, never trust a surgeon, even a really good one!); five had cancer. Plus, I didn’t get much useful information from the pathology report, only that I was now stage three.

My well-meaning oncologist recommended chemo; my well-intentioned radiologist recommended radiation. I declined both. My oncologist fully accepted my choice; my radiologist not so much, but understood it was my choice.

Come January, I went for a follow-up sonogram, expecting to get the all-clear.  Unfortunately, the radiologist found two more suspicious nodes nearby the excision. I declined the biopsy. I continued with my protocol and retested in April. The two nodes remained suspicious, but had not grown; an additional one was found. I declined the biopsy.

October 2015

Woo hoo! Sonogram shows that all nodes in the armpit are now clear! It seems my protocol is working.

I am incredibly grateful to all of my doctors and healers who while might not always agree with my choices, understand and support them. I will cherish the look on my radiologist’s face when she said, “Elyn, I was worried as you declined all recommendations, but whatever you are doing, keep doing it, it’s amazing!”

Elyn’s Motions and Potions

The Motions

For the 7 years since my original diagnosis I researched everything about cancer—why it develops and how to reduce risk. I juiced and ate to beat cancer. Under the guidance of my oncologist, I took copious amounts of targeted supplements.

My oncologist also said I needed to reduce my stress—he said my life would depend on it. He said likely something happened to me when I was five years old that was driving my cancer. When I went for some coaching training, I learned even more about how powerful the mind is, including the damage past emotional traumas can inflict on the body. At the time I couldn’t get myself to meditate or do yoga (which for the most part does not agree with my body), but I forgave all that have caused me stress and trauma. Little did I know that my subconscious was not on-board, that forgiveness only goes so far.

Needless to say, in September 2014, it all changed. I now fully realized that the root cause of my cancer was indeed emotional and I needed help.

Dr Ryke Geerd Hamer, a German physician and scientist, has studied and written much on how unresolved psycho-emotional trauma causes cancer. He believes that cancer occurs when the individual suppresses for long periods toxic negative emotions (primarily anger, hate, resentment and grief). This creates cell changes within the body leading to cancer. Other researchers have come up with similar theories supporting the idea that past traumas, including those of our ancestors, affect gene expression just like environmental factors, and leave molecular scars leading to cancer.

I wish I had known that beyond the field of white coats, is a world of healers, who for centuries before modern medicine, were the true healers—people who can heal these scars.

The Power of Healers

That September, I met a Ki-Energy Healer at a conference. He told me I was absorbing too much negative energy from others and that he could heal me of the cancer. I liked him, but he was only available locally one day a week; healing required three.  I met another healer, he said the same thing. I had so much confidence in Ki healing, and after each session, the lump would shrink; but then the darn thing kept growing back. I lost confidence, but perhaps I should have stuck with it. Thinking back, I knew I could not manage the travel, so perhaps that was not meant to be my plan.

I also tried BioEnergetic Healing with Zev Koleman.  I found this fascinating, but I did not notice a change. I did some EFT tapping (Emotional Freedom Technique) with Dr Thelma Jones, and found that very helpful in removing cancer-causing emotions.  I worked with a psychotherapist, Dr Peter Resnik, for many months as we chopped through toxic emotions and through visualization and dream-analysis, worked on healing. I practiced yoga with my friend and yoga instructor Yuliana Kim Grant,who also turned me on to Yoga Nidra (a form of meditation and guided relaxation). Sometimes we have to try many healing modalities before we find the right one for us. I credit all of these amazing people for contributions made to my wellness and will keep up with the techniques I learned.

When I tried Reiki, it was love at first touch.  My Reiki Master, Brian Brunius, is nothing short of amazing.  My stress melted away as I melted into the table. I also stumbled across Holly Hallowell, another great healer who with her Emotion Code and Anahata expertise, helped me to remove ties to emotional traumas that were contributing to pain, and likely my cancer as well. (Anahata Codes are assisting frequencies which add the perfect blend of vibrations needed to unblock, release and elevate energy to a place of perfection.) I also came across April Fontana (note to all, nothing happens by chance—always for a reason). April is an amazing clairvoyant psychic healer (The Oracle Method), and she has fixed my mind, body and soul.  She has cleared my mind so I can think, opened my crown so I can sleep, and fixed so many physical issues I can’t count them all—but for example, this summer when I struggled with bouts of intense stomach pain and could not eat for weeks at a time, and my doctors could not find reason nor remedy, April repaired my raw stomach; problem solved. April also recommended I wear crystal bracelets to protect myself from negative energy, radiation from technical devices and more. While all of my ‘motions’ were very helpful and clearly played a role in my healing, I knew I had to narrow down my team of healers. Brian, Holly and April are clearly my ‘A’ team–I don’t know what I would do without them.

Here’s the recap of the Motions that helped me heal: (Stay tuned for Part II, Potions)

  • Energy Healing (The Oracle Method, Emotion Code,Ki, and BioEnergetic)
  • Reiki
  • Psychotherapy, visualization
  • Rebounding
  • EFT tapping
  • Crystal healing bracelets bracelets
  • Oil pulling to remove oral toxins and bacteria
  • Yoga, meditation
  • Frankincense oil, applied to my armpit and on the souls of my feet (more about this in Potions as I firmly believe this made a huge difference in my healing)
  • Making Elyn a priority, spending more time with friends, and having more fun!

Remember, something works for everyone, but everything does not work for everyone….I share with you my story to give you confidence that there are many ways to heal from cancer–and to heal the reasons for that cancer.

I am incredibly grateful to all of my doctors and healers who while might not always agree with my choices, understand and support them. I will forever cherish the look on my radiologist’s face when she said, “Elyn, I was worried as you declined all recommendations, but whatever you are doing, keep doing it, it’s amazing!”

ej pinkWhat do I do now?  I will never let my guard down; I will continue with my protocol for the rest of life, likely with a few tweaks along the way. I know I still have much to do, but I will have more fun; I will laugh more and wear bright clothing (as suggested by team member Dr Resnik). I have forgiven myself (and my surgeon) for the choices made. I will continue to nourish my soul and not allow others to interfere with my happiness. I will never forget the importance of having a “Plan B”. While I hope I never need it, I know that it is important to have that in my pocket.

Life is good.
