During my latest holistic doctor consultation, Dr. Carlos Garcia, who offers a complimentary one-hour consultation to anyone with a cancer diagnosis, told me “This is an emotionally-based disease” with conviction as he flipped through my biopsy report and PET scans and checked his intuition via Applied Kinesiology. I didn’t expect the same old “poison, cut, and burn” plan from him, but I didn’t expect a recommendation to get a grip on my stuffed emotional trauma either.
It resonated with me, though, and it wasn’t the first time I’ve heard it. Three years ago when I met my now trusted Intuitive Medium Christiana McMahon, I told her I had a health issue. She told me “it’s in your breast,” adding, “you just got out of a really bad relationship.”
Working on my emotional baggage might not be easy but it will undoubtedly be more pleasant than the treatment plan of the oncologist I saw the day before. In my opinion, there was nothing right about Dr. Wright’s recommendations, which included 6 months of chemotherapy, 10 years of estrogen-blocking drugs, 3 surgeries, and 6 weeks of radiation. I asked for the data sheets that list the side effects of the 4-5 drugs she was recommending (heart disease, uterine cancer, liver damage, and death among them), but I already knew that was not going to be my path. I must choose a plan that I believe in for it to work. I do not believe in poisoning myself to get well.
The treatments I saw while getting the nickel tour of Dr. Garcia’s holistic health care center made more sense to me. Alternative remedies included IV vitamin therapy, which I have already been receiving for several weeks, detox foot baths, infrared sauna, massage, and a hyperbaric oxygen chamber. I also noticed a juicer and a therapist’s office, both of which I have also begun to utilize. Although it is expensive and rarely covered by insurance, I’m sure this is one of the places I will visit in the weeks ahead as I begin my mission toward mind and body wellness.
I want to use this blog as a place to document my experiences, and to share information and opinions that may not widely available, and to tell the story in my own words. My “Health Plan” will be a permanent page that I will keep adding to initially, for anyone who chooses to see specifically what I am doing. I will also have a page with ideas for those who wish to help me on my journey in some way.
For those I know well, if you’re wondering…or if someone should ask you the latest about my health, please refer to my blog here, http://www.carrieannsalvi.com. Though I appreciate the caring concern of my friends and family, I want to conserve my energy and stay in a positive state, instead of giving the dis-ease power by talking about it all the time.
So I invite all to come along for the ride if you wish, or not to if you don’t. I will share my blog posts on Facebook, Twitter, and Linked In, or you may follow it here to receive an email with each new post.
This story will have a happy ending, I am sure of it. I hope all who visit will do their best to believe too, and to share positive thoughts and energy. I am not owning the “c” word; I will not give it power or even capitalization.
Here’s to health and new adventures!
