BC-061 Intro To A Coach: Kim Meacham

Kim Meachamwas diagnosed with a rare form of lymphoma in 2016. With a determined spirit and a supportive wife, Kim went from being given 2 months to live to being in complete remission and feeling healthier than he ever had before. Kim and his wife Ingrid started Health & Success to counsel people to improve their quality of life from preventable or holistically-treatable diseases or conditions. Listen to this podcast to hear about the diet, lifestyle and spiritual changes he made that address all aspects of health necessary for healing. 5:11Even though I thought I was eating the right way I wasn’t. I had an absolute problem withsugar. 5:44Along with sleep deprivation, I was getting 5-6 hours of sleep a night from the time I was 11 years old. 7:19I had a hernia surgery in January 2016 and the surgeon detected some lymph node activity. 8:21I found a lump that came out in the back of my neck. They also started to develop in my armpits and abdominal and groin area. In 12/29/16 I was diagnosed with stage 4 mantle cell lymphoma with 100% proliferation rate. My tumors were doubling in size every week. 10:03We continued down a holistic path to feed my body so it had the nutrients it needed to survive 4 months ofchemotherapyand bone marrow stem cell transplant. 11:50Bone marrow transplant surgery is one of the most invasive, toxic treatments anyone can go through. 13:21In the 20 days that I was in the hospital, I walked 92 miles with my IV pole. Other patients started walking for the first time. My energy and true passion to live inspired others. 14:21I was told I was cancer free but they missed a small cyst in my lower back and it started to grow. I got an appointment with Dr Michael Wong at MD Anderson. 16:48I told my Dr. not to ever give me an expiration date, so Dr Wong told my family I had less than 2 months to live. There was a clinical trial in phase 2 that was put on hold due to brain toxicity. 18:56My wife had discovered a dried form of vitamin D mixed with olive oil that was supposed to help reduce tumors on the brain. I had been doing that twice a day for 6 months. When it came time for the trial to begin they couldn’t find any lesions on my brain. I was the first person to do this trial after FDA approval. 20:58I went through a 24 day stay at MD Anderson for the trial. I had a softball size tumor and about 18 other external tumors. We worked hard to support my body through the 400 hours of chemotherapy and never had nausea, diarrhea, mouth sores or a lack of energy. I hid my supplements and herbs from the hospital so they wouldn’t take them away. 24:18It’s a travesty the food that hospitals are feeding people that are trying to heal. 25:33I almost passed away twice during the procedure. I told my Dr. I don’t know what dying feels like but I’m not dying. I had a positive attitude and walked 2 miles a day. 30:21It was my cells, not the chemotherapy, that ultimately took these tumors that were as large as a softball and now they’re just ugly scars. 31:00Take your life in your hands and make your own decisions. Don’t let your doctor make your decisions. He’s an advisor. It’s your life. Make your own decisions. 32:24Pick a decision and go down that path until something tells you that you need to make a fork in the path. 32:49SEEDS- Acronym forSleep,Exercise, Emotion, Diet, and Supplementation at the cellular level. 35:32I’ve been a green tea drinker for 40 plus years. 36:20I do not miss a day of exercise. In 2017 I logged 1800 miles, and 2018 over 2000 miles. That was my internal drive. I do not recommend a hard core workout for someone who had been dormant. I believe in baby steps. 38:07The emotional part of staying positive and focused on the task at hand is the biggest challenge.Meditationand prayer is a huge part of our life. I believe in energy. Positive energy from people praying for you makes a huge difference. 39:30We eat 100 % organic, non GMO whole food. We have a substantial garden that I pick from. 40:22I

BC-059 Intro To A Coach: Jodie Lin Learned The Value of Nutrition and Stress Management To Manage Her Breast Cancer, IDC

Jodie Lin is a mom of five beautiful children, a breast cancer survivor, a runner, an attorney, a musician, a personal trainer, a health coach, and a cancer coach. As a breast cancer survivor, she spent the past five years really delving into the impact food has on the body, which foods will benefit each individual, and which can cause harm. After realizing her own diet lacked the essential nutrients her body needed to heal from cancer, she became passionate about helping people to understand the inflammatory process that food can create as well as the impact of proper nutrition so that they can learn to make the best nutrition and exercise choices that will keep their individual body in optimal health. Listen to this podcast to learn about Jodie’s journey from “pastatarian” to cancer coach as she navigates invasive ductal carcinoma and her passion to help others heal holistically from cancer. 1:25It all started when I was a child and had to go on a lot of antibiotics for ear infections. 1:29I became a vegetarian at the age of 10 purely by choice. 1:55I was eating as a vegetarian later in life but was known as a “pastatarian” because I ate more pasta than vegetables. I ate iceberg lettuce. There was not a lot of the darker greens and color in my diet and fruit. 2:47I had 5 kids and they opened my eyes to being able to be allergic to food and having inflammatory reactions to food and gut dysbiosis because of it. 3:31Just before my 5th pregnancy I started a pain in my right breast. 4:00I had a mammogram that showed micro calcifications and I was just to be monitored. 4:30With the pregnancy of my 5th Child there was definitely telltale signs of something being wrong. 5:19I went back to the Dr. 5 weeks after my son was born and had a follow up mammogram and I was told I had cancer. 5:3880% of micro calcifications are benign. 6:00There’s no breast cancer in my history. I was a runner and a mom of five and everything that I had read suggested that the more children you have the lower your likelihood of having breast cancer and I nursed them all which lowers your risk and I was very fit and healthy and at a healthy weight. So there was nothing in the literature to suggest that someone in my position we get breast cancer. 6:45I had DCIS, ductile cell carcinoma in situ. I had a mastectomy and 7 weeks of radiation. 7:09I really wanted to get to the root cause. I started to do research and learned about the impact of nutrition and that the sugar and soy I was eating, as well as white flour and processed foods was damaging my body. 8:02I went to the Institute of Integrative Nutrition and became a health coach. 8:08Eight years later I was doing great and I had put this all behind me until I started having pain in my right breast again, where I had an implant. 8:54During the year prior to my diagnosis I experienced a lot of stress and trauma. My sister was diagnosed with cancer and my brother-in-law’s sister had been diagnosed with her 3rd round of metastatic breast cancer and passed away and my father passed away unexpectedly. 10:50Through faulty testing with an MRI without contrast dye they decided my implant ruptured. 11:20I went in for what was supposed to be a three hour surgery and they removed a lump that was tested and came back as invasive ductal cell carcinoma. 12:00The piece I was missing was managing my stress. They caused inflammation and weakened my immune system. 12:22-13:50I came to BeatCancer.org to understand my situation and to help others. 16:48I've been trying yoga to quiet my mind. I’ve been journaling to help me cope. We are practicing gratitude as a family. 17:34Everyone has to find the stress management mechanism that will work for them. Could be yoga, gratification, journaling or breathing. 18:15JKL Well Health Coaching stands for Just Clean Living. 18:44I like to do food testing to make sure the foods that people are eating or not causing them inflammation. 19:20Symptoms are not always just gas and bloat

BC-058 INTRO TO A COACH: Jackie Bye Learn About The Breast Cancer Personality and How Coach Jackie Bye Learned What It Takes To Put Yourself First In Order To Heal

2:23I’ve always been one who likes to take care of people and a people pleaser, which goes along with breast cancer too, it’s that type a personality. 2:31I went to the Peace Corps after college and was diagnosed with amoebas, giardia, and parasites and I had over 40 immunizations as well in the Peace Corps. When I got home I was never the same. I had no energy. 3:20In 2016, I was running around with kids, had a stressful job, was not eating or sleeping well, and I was diagnosed with cancer. The source was my gut microbiome, the parasites, root canals, and cavitations that were identified on a dental thermogram. 4:25Even though I was a people pleaser, I stood up to conventional doctors and said I’m not going to do chemotherapy and radiation. I knew I was running on fumes and I knew my body well enough to know it wasn’t going to work for me. 6:15Vitamin C, and HOCATT- an infra-red sauna, ozone therapy with PEMF were all part of my treatment. 6:30Or conventional approach is a one-size-fits all method, and when you treat cancer it has to be multi-pronged approach, because all of our bodies are different. 8:42When you are diagnosed, you have time and choices and you don’t know that at first. Time is important. Take as long as you need to come up with a plan that resonates with you. Women have a great gut instincts we need to listen to. 9:57I just put out a blog and a movement for healing breast cancer versus fighting breast cancer. It is counterproductive when you fight anything. Your body goes into fight or flight mode which means stress, which leads to inflammation, which leads to disease that can appear as auto immune disease or cancer. 10:52My life needed to change. I was a people pleaser and had type A personality. I’ve learned to focus on me. Me first, then family. 11:14For stress I walk my dogs in the morning while forest bathing and doing affirmations by Louise Hay, to get my mind out of fear. We must heal the mind first. The suppression of emotions, stress, and holding back resentments needs to be healed. It’s critical to find out where you are in your mind. Then I do 15 minutes of meditation and 20 minutes of yoga outside for extra grounding. And I also do rebounding once or twice a week with shoes on 13:17I also see a therapist because I felt really heavy emotionally and I wanted to preserve relationships with my family. 18:46I am a school counselor as well, so I’ve been meeting with students whose moms have cancer and they are hurting and having a hard time coping. I am working with kids and coaching moms to help their kids. 20:11In my home there are no guessing games. My children know where I am and I share all the results of my tests. We have a meeting once a month for our family to talk and we keep the lines of communication open with our children. 20:47The holistic cancer coaching course with Beat Cancer filled in the blanks for me with things I didn’t know so I could walk the walk. It empowered me and educated me to reach out and help others. It has great information and includes a great support system with other coaches. It hits on many topics to support others on their healing journey. Jackie is passionate about counseling mom’s with cancer and their children.

BC-057 Learn How Mari Beth Beat Cancer by Incorporating A New Lifestyle

Intro To A Coach: Mari Beth Nicastro-Price Becoming Disease Free Involves a Lifestyle Change 1:18I thought I was living a healthy lifestyle, but in 2017 I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I did a ton of research and I found out it’s not just what you eat. It encompasses a whole lifestyle change. 2:12I hired a health coach myself and she got me through. It was a hard decision, but I opted out of conventional treatment and made lifestyle nutrition changes and now I’m cancer free. 3:20I wished I could help people with all the knowledge I had, especially cancer patients, because every cancer journey is so unique. How Beat Cancer’s Holistic Cancer Coaching Course Helped Her To Heal Herself and Others 4:39-5:20I foundBeatcancer.organd yourcoaching certificationand I was so excited I signed up that day and did it alongside the IIN year-long health coach certification. 5:53I had genetic testing done but it wasn’t for me. It threw me off. They just test you and tell you you have this gene and that gene. But a lot of people that have breast cancer don’t have that gene. I’m one of them. We all have mutated genes but it’s the way they were expressed that we have control over. A lot of it is aboutstress. I had stress and did not manage it well. It’s a whole lifestyle change needed. 7:39You can’t just eatwhole foodsand expect to be disease-free. There’s a lot that goes with that that needs to happen. Stress Relief, Nature, Taking Breaks, and Making Healthy Eating Changes 9:28My favorite stress relief technique is being out in nature. I do a lot of hiking and that’s where I am at peace. My morning routine starts at 5:30. I write in my gratitude journal then I go outside and it’s mymeditationtime. 10:56We are bombarded with light from TV, computers, phones, etc. My surgeon told me how that messes with your circadian rhythm. 12:45My coworkers had been very stressed. We take a 15 minute walk in the morning and a 15 minute walk in the afternoon. You also get in touch with your spiritual side on a walk. 14:57Cancer is not like it used to be. It’s not a death sentence anymore. 18:30You need to recognize the root cause and fix it because you can’t keep going on the same way. 20:53My lentil soup recipe on my website,www.beyondnutritioncoaching.comis one of my favorites. 21:15I’m a big believer in essential oils. 23:49I try to teach my clients to crowd out your food instead of depriving yourself. I start with a huge salad with everyvegetableyou can imagine. Portion-wise that’s my main meal. Then I will have a little meat and/or maybe a little piece of sweet potato or quinoa. 24:40So the only thing you have to cut out is processed foods and refined sugar.

BC-056 Coach Paul Schmitendorf Speaks About The Importance of Having A Game Plan To Prevent, Heal From, and Prevent Recurrence From Cancer

The group of people most susceptible to getting cancer are those people who've already had it once and haven't made any changes to their diet, lifestyle, and other key risk factors. They typically haven't figured out what got them in trouble in the first place and addressed those issues. Whether you've had cancer once before or you'd like to never get cancer, having a simple cancer prevention game plan can make the difference. In this podcast we'll talk about how you can begin to take an active, conscious role in preventing cancer. At the Center for Advancement in Cancer Education we believe cancer is a highly preventable disease and that prevention starts with well thought out game plan. A simple game plan starts with a diet high in fruits and vegetables while reducing sugar, processed foods, meat, dairy, and omega-6 fats. Of course smoking is a key risk factor and should not be a part of a cancer prevention game plan. Getting 30 minutes of exercise a day can lower cancer risk considerably. Exercise can be as simple as going for a 30-minute walk on a daily basis. Another important aspect of a game plan it considering what negative or trapped emotions we're holding onto. Working through these by talking with a close friend or counselor can be an important step in living more joyfully and reducing cancer risk. It's also important to consider the level of stress in one's life. People tend to know when their lives have become overstressed. The key then is to take action steps to reduce stress, perhaps by changing jobs or ending toxic relationships. Simple stress relieving techniques like exercise, spending time in nature, meditation, EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique), yoga and Tai Chi can be helpful. Encouraging your "internal terrain" to detoxify on a regular basis is important for creating an inhospitable environment for cancer cells to grow. We can do this by fasting, cleansing, juice cleansing, sweating out toxins in a sauna, and improving detoxification through colon hydrotherapy. One final element to a cancer prevention game plan is to be mindful of sun exposure. Getting 20-30 minutes of sunlight on the skin each day, preferably in the morning, is important in helping the body to create Vitamin D. Vitamin D is actually a hormone that greatly reduces cancer risk when maintained at a healthy level. Supplementing with Vitamin D during the winter months is often necessary to maintain optimum levels. If making many changes feels overwhelming, then consider making one change each month. By the end of a year you'll have adopted a cancer prevention lifestyle. Prevention is the cure!

BC-055 How To Grow Cancer Fighting Broccoli Sprouts

What if you could grow one of the most potent sources of an apoptosis (cancer cell suicide) inducing compound right in your own kitchen? You can! And this can be accomplished easily in 5-7 days. I'm referring to broccoli sprouts, the most potent source of sulforaphane we know. Stalks of broccoli are a great source of sulforaphane, but broccoli seeds grown into sprouts have been shown to have an impressive 50 to 100 times more of this important compound. As if that weren't enough, they actually taste good and can be used in smoothies, on salads, sandwiches, or a topping on pretty much any dish. These sprouts can be grown in a few easy steps. Broccoli seeds can be purchased at your local health food store or online. The first step is to take a 1/2 cup of seeds and soak them overnight. Using a strainer or jar with a mesh screen they can be rinsed and then allowed to sit somewhere in your kitchen. It's important that the seeds stay moist throughout the process and are not placed in direct sunlight until the very end of the process. Continue the rinsing step 2 or 3 times a day over the next 3-5 days. Again, the key is to keep the seeds moist. On the 3rd or 4th day they will start sprouting. Once they have had a day or two to sprout they can be placed near a window or outside to receive some direct sunlight. This will help them green up and be ready to be eaten. Enjoy!

Intro To A Coach: Breast Cancer Survivor Melissa Eppard Talks About The Challenges Of Navigating Life After Treatment. What’s Next After the “Survivor Confetti” Has Been Swept Away?

Melissa Eppard is a 5 year survivor of triple negative breast cancer. Having been immersed in the holistic healing world before diagnosis, Melissa knew it was her calling to be a coach for cancer survivors. She is particularly passionate about being a support for people with a cancer diagnosis in the 20s-50s age group who deal with the complex nature of raising children, caring for aging parents and working. Often times finances are affected, relationships are affected and fear of recurrence is strong. Melissa believes that as a someone who has been through this experience she lends a great deal of support and wisdom. Some Of Her Favorite Tools For Healing: 5:58 I love to use guided visualization. There are some great scripts I use with people. I am also trained in EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) which is tapping on acupuncture meridian points with a issue in mind. It is a powerful transformational tool. 10:40 Humor was a good tool to help me heal. Children are real teachers that show us how to play and how to stay in the moment. How Beat Cancer’s Certified Holistic Cancer Coaching Course Helped Her to Heal Herself and Others 14:20 As a life coach and wanting to work with those with cancer, the course has filled the need for resources and deeper information on how to manage side effects and stay healthy when you have cancer. I love Beat Cancer’s approach in treating the person and not the cancer. 14:49 There is selfish component for taking the course also. I was a survivor of 4 years when I discovered the course and it has helped me to stay on track with things like nutrition and pumping the lymphatic system. There are so many great references to books and studies that I filled a whole notebook taking notes. 15:50 The depth of information from the course would’ve taken me years to compile. 16:12 It has inspired me to stay the course and keep eating the right foods and doing the right things. We Need Each Other To Heal 22:09 Together we heal. We need each other. My greatest source of hope and light for me when I was going through my battle was hearing from other cancer survivors that had been through it and were living their lives years later. When I got my diagnosis a black curtain fell and I could not see beyond it. 22:46 Connect with your future self. Have a dialogue with that part of you. What does that future person want for you? What special tools and gifts does your future self have to give you now so you can come through this empowered. Melissa coaches people remotely or in person in Kingston, NY. Please visit her blog site also. What you nurture will grow.

BC-052 Intro To A Coach Linda Jensen: How She Beat Stage 3 Breast Cancer and her Personal Journey to Becoming a Cancer Coach, Healing Arts Practitioner, and Author

After losing her husband to a very rare form of cancer and being diagnosed herself with stage III breast cancer and having 16 out of 18 lymph nodes removed, Linda knew it was time to learn more about integrative health, nourishing the body, spirit and mind, to heal and treat herself – simply to survive. Linda specializes in the alkaline/acidic effects on the body, truly defining healthy eating that is crucial for those who have been diagnosed with cancer. Her practice incorporates integrative lifestyle counseling and the Healing Arts Techniques of Jin Shin Jyutsu, Healing Touch, and Raindrop Therapy. Her philosophy is that optimal health is achieved by bringing balance and harmony to mind, body and spirit, starting at the cellular level. Listen to this podcast to learn her philosophies and what has kept her cancer free for 15 years. 3:14They thought I would have a reoccurrence within five years and possibly a lifespan of nine. It’s now 15 years and I’ve watched my three children grow up. There was a lot ofstressso I think that had a lot to do with it because there was nothing in my family tree. 3:36I was so grateful and luck 3:36I was so grateful and lucky to have found Dr. Susan Silberstein. She was my lifeline. Through her books, her website and her teachings I found that I wanted to take her class (Holistic Cancer Coaching Course) and realized with this toolbox of information that I had I wanted to share it with others. 4:22I just wanted to help people so I went to nonprofit organizations. A lot of people can’t afford to pay $250 an hour for a nutritionist. I did a lot of nonprofit work and since 2010 have counseled over 800 people. 4:55I will always be grateful to her (Dr Susan Silberstein) and her teachings and what she’s brought to the cancer community itself. 5:36She (Dr Susan) lead me onto the path of not only wanting to help others, but realizing that you can have your nutrition and do the right things and feed your body and food as medicine, but then life hits you and stress and just so much that goes on that are cells as energy react to that puts us in a bad spot. That’s why I started to learn about Jin Shin Jyutsu, healing energy medicines, herbs, crystals, sound healing. 8:58I’m a mobile office essentially because then I can offer my services at very low cost. 9:44I took the path less traveled and found that it’s been a very good path. 10:05I wroteSurvolve. I never like the word survivor because I believe we survived, yet we evolve and that’s where that came from. 12:13with Dr. Susan‘smeal plan, you can fill that out and look at foods that you’re eating and replace them and eliminate others. 15:03You really need a coach and some tools and someone to follow you. You need that kind of support because that’s a big lifestyle change and it’s overwhelming to just get the diagnosis. Coaches can bridge the gap between the medical community and alternative options and what’s available is tremendous. 16:55Energy therapies are so important.Meditationand anything that can take your mind off that problem. Something as simple as writing something down and burning it. A ritual to make you feel better and say, OK that’s gone. On to the next thing. 17:35I have found that being grateful, and also a little mantra I found when I was diagnosed, that someone has it worse. So let me be thankful for what I do have. 18:57Her websitewww.kitchenchemotherapy.comexplains her services and has recipes, education and resources.

Kim Meachamwas diagnosed with a rare form of lymphoma in 2016. With a determined spirit and a supportive wife, Kim went from being given 2 months to live to being in complete remission and feeling healthier than he ever had before. Kim and his wife Ingrid started Health & Success to counsel people to improve their quality of life from preventable or holistically-treatable diseases or conditions. Listen to this podcast to hear about the diet, lifestyle and spiritual changes he made that address all aspects of health necessary for healing. 5:11Even though I thought I was eating the right way I wasn’t. I had an absolute problem withsugar. 5:44Along with sleep deprivation, I was getting 5-6 hours of sleep a night from the time I was 11 years old. 7:19I had a hernia surgery in January 2016 and the surgeon detected some lymph node activity. 8:21I found a lump that came out in the back of my neck. They also started to develop in my armpits and abdominal and groin area. In 12/29/16 I was diagnosed with stage 4 mantle cell lymphoma with 100% proliferation rate. My tumors were doubling in size every week. 10:03We continued down a holistic path to feed my body so it had the nutrients it needed to survive 4 months ofchemotherapyand bone marrow stem cell transplant. 11:50Bone marrow transplant surgery is one of the most invasive, toxic treatments anyone can go through. 13:21In the 20 days that I was in the hospital, I walked 92 miles with my IV pole. Other patients started walking for the first time. My energy and true passion to live inspired others. 14:21I was told I was cancer free but they missed a small cyst in my lower back and it started to grow. I got an appointment with Dr Michael Wong at MD Anderson. 16:48I told my Dr. not to ever give me an expiration date, so Dr Wong told my family I had less than 2 months to live. There was a clinical trial in phase 2 that was put on hold due to brain toxicity. 18:56My wife had discovered a dried form of vitamin D mixed with olive oil that was supposed to help reduce tumors on the brain. I had been doing that twice a day for 6 months. When it came time for the trial to begin they couldn’t find any lesions on my brain. I was the first person to do this trial after FDA approval. 20:58I went through a 24 day stay at MD Anderson for the trial. I had a softball size tumor and about 18 other external tumors. We worked hard to support my body through the 400 hours of chemotherapy and never had nausea, diarrhea, mouth sores or a lack of energy. I hid my supplements and herbs from the hospital so they wouldn’t take them away. 24:18It’s a travesty the food that hospitals are feeding people that are trying to heal. 25:33I almost passed away twice during the procedure. I told my Dr. I don’t know what dying feels like but I’m not dying. I had a positive attitude and walked 2 miles a day. 30:21It was my cells, not the chemotherapy, that ultimately took these tumors that were as large as a softball and now they’re just ugly scars. 31:00Take your life in your hands and make your own decisions. Don’t let your doctor make your decisions. He’s an advisor. It’s your life. Make your own decisions. 32:24Pick a decision and go down that path until something tells you that you need to make a fork in the path. 32:49SEEDS- Acronym forSleep,Exercise, Emotion, Diet, and Supplementation at the cellular level. 35:32I’ve been a green tea drinker for 40 plus years. 36:20I do not miss a day of exercise. In 2017 I logged 1800 miles, and 2018 over 2000 miles. That was my internal drive. I do not recommend a hard core workout for someone who had been dormant. I believe in baby steps. 38:07The emotional part of staying positive and focused on the task at hand is the biggest challenge.Meditationand prayer is a huge part of our life. I believe in energy. Positive energy from people praying for you makes a huge difference. 39:30We eat 100 % organic, non GMO whole food. We have a substantial garden that I pick from. 40:22I

BC-059 Intro To A Coach: Jodie Lin Learned The Value of Nutrition and Stress Management To Manage Her Breast Cancer, IDC

Jodie Lin is a mom of five beautiful children, a breast cancer survivor, a runner, an attorney, a musician, a personal trainer, a health coach, and a cancer coach. As a breast cancer survivor, she spent the past five years really delving into the impact food has on the body, which foods will benefit each individual, and which can cause harm. After realizing her own diet lacked the essential nutrients her body needed to heal from cancer, she became passionate about helping people to understand the inflammatory process that food can create as well as the impact of proper nutrition so that they can learn to make the best nutrition and exercise choices that will keep their individual body in optimal health. Listen to this podcast to learn about Jodie’s journey from “pastatarian” to cancer coach as she navigates invasive ductal carcinoma and her passion to help others heal holistically from cancer. 1:25It all started when I was a child and had to go on a lot of antibiotics for ear infections. 1:29I became a vegetarian at the age of 10 purely by choice. 1:55I was eating as a vegetarian later in life but was known as a “pastatarian” because I ate more pasta than vegetables. I ate iceberg lettuce. There was not a lot of the darker greens and color in my diet and fruit. 2:47I had 5 kids and they opened my eyes to being able to be allergic to food and having inflammatory reactions to food and gut dysbiosis because of it. 3:31Just before my 5th pregnancy I started a pain in my right breast. 4:00I had a mammogram that showed micro calcifications and I was just to be monitored. 4:30With the pregnancy of my 5th Child there was definitely telltale signs of something being wrong. 5:19I went back to the Dr. 5 weeks after my son was born and had a follow up mammogram and I was told I had cancer. 5:3880% of micro calcifications are benign. 6:00There’s no breast cancer in my history. I was a runner and a mom of five and everything that I had read suggested that the more children you have the lower your likelihood of having breast cancer and I nursed them all which lowers your risk and I was very fit and healthy and at a healthy weight. So there was nothing in the literature to suggest that someone in my position we get breast cancer. 6:45I had DCIS, ductile cell carcinoma in situ. I had a mastectomy and 7 weeks of radiation. 7:09I really wanted to get to the root cause. I started to do research and learned about the impact of nutrition and that the sugar and soy I was eating, as well as white flour and processed foods was damaging my body. 8:02I went to the Institute of Integrative Nutrition and became a health coach. 8:08Eight years later I was doing great and I had put this all behind me until I started having pain in my right breast again, where I had an implant. 8:54During the year prior to my diagnosis I experienced a lot of stress and trauma. My sister was diagnosed with cancer and my brother-in-law’s sister had been diagnosed with her 3rd round of metastatic breast cancer and passed away and my father passed away unexpectedly. 10:50Through faulty testing with an MRI without contrast dye they decided my implant ruptured. 11:20I went in for what was supposed to be a three hour surgery and they removed a lump that was tested and came back as invasive ductal cell carcinoma. 12:00The piece I was missing was managing my stress. They caused inflammation and weakened my immune system. 12:22-13:50I came to BeatCancer.org to understand my situation and to help others. 16:48I've been trying yoga to quiet my mind. I’ve been journaling to help me cope. We are practicing gratitude as a family. 17:34Everyone has to find the stress management mechanism that will work for them. Could be yoga, gratification, journaling or breathing. 18:15JKL Well Health Coaching stands for Just Clean Living. 18:44I like to do food testing to make sure the foods that people are eating or not causing them inflammation. 19:20Symptoms are not always just gas and bloat

BC-058 INTRO TO A COACH: Jackie Bye Learn About The Breast Cancer Personality and How Coach Jackie Bye Learned What It Takes To Put Yourself First In Order To Heal

2:23I’ve always been one who likes to take care of people and a people pleaser, which goes along with breast cancer too, it’s that type a personality. 2:31I went to the Peace Corps after college and was diagnosed with amoebas, giardia, and parasites and I had over 40 immunizations as well in the Peace Corps. When I got home I was never the same. I had no energy. 3:20In 2016, I was running around with kids, had a stressful job, was not eating or sleeping well, and I was diagnosed with cancer. The source was my gut microbiome, the parasites, root canals, and cavitations that were identified on a dental thermogram. 4:25Even though I was a people pleaser, I stood up to conventional doctors and said I’m not going to do chemotherapy and radiation. I knew I was running on fumes and I knew my body well enough to know it wasn’t going to work for me. 6:15Vitamin C, and HOCATT- an infra-red sauna, ozone therapy with PEMF were all part of my treatment. 6:30Or conventional approach is a one-size-fits all method, and when you treat cancer it has to be multi-pronged approach, because all of our bodies are different. 8:42When you are diagnosed, you have time and choices and you don’t know that at first. Time is important. Take as long as you need to come up with a plan that resonates with you. Women have a great gut instincts we need to listen to. 9:57I just put out a blog and a movement for healing breast cancer versus fighting breast cancer. It is counterproductive when you fight anything. Your body goes into fight or flight mode which means stress, which leads to inflammation, which leads to disease that can appear as auto immune disease or cancer. 10:52My life needed to change. I was a people pleaser and had type A personality. I’ve learned to focus on me. Me first, then family. 11:14For stress I walk my dogs in the morning while forest bathing and doing affirmations by Louise Hay, to get my mind out of fear. We must heal the mind first. The suppression of emotions, stress, and holding back resentments needs to be healed. It’s critical to find out where you are in your mind. Then I do 15 minutes of meditation and 20 minutes of yoga outside for extra grounding. And I also do rebounding once or twice a week with shoes on 13:17I also see a therapist because I felt really heavy emotionally and I wanted to preserve relationships with my family. 18:46I am a school counselor as well, so I’ve been meeting with students whose moms have cancer and they are hurting and having a hard time coping. I am working with kids and coaching moms to help their kids. 20:11In my home there are no guessing games. My children know where I am and I share all the results of my tests. We have a meeting once a month for our family to talk and we keep the lines of communication open with our children. 20:47The holistic cancer coaching course with Beat Cancer filled in the blanks for me with things I didn’t know so I could walk the walk. It empowered me and educated me to reach out and help others. It has great information and includes a great support system with other coaches. It hits on many topics to support others on their healing journey. Jackie is passionate about counseling mom’s with cancer and their children.

BC-057 Learn How Mari Beth Beat Cancer by Incorporating A New Lifestyle

Intro To A Coach: Mari Beth Nicastro-Price Becoming Disease Free Involves a Lifestyle Change 1:18I thought I was living a healthy lifestyle, but in 2017 I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I did a ton of research and I found out it’s not just what you eat. It encompasses a whole lifestyle change. 2:12I hired a health coach myself and she got me through. It was a hard decision, but I opted out of conventional treatment and made lifestyle nutrition changes and now I’m cancer free. 3:20I wished I could help people with all the knowledge I had, especially cancer patients, because every cancer journey is so unique. How Beat Cancer’s Holistic Cancer Coaching Course Helped Her To Heal Herself and Others 4:39-5:20I foundBeatcancer.organd yourcoaching certificationand I was so excited I signed up that day and did it alongside the IIN year-long health coach certification. 5:53I had genetic testing done but it wasn’t for me. It threw me off. They just test you and tell you you have this gene and that gene. But a lot of people that have breast cancer don’t have that gene. I’m one of them. We all have mutated genes but it’s the way they were expressed that we have control over. A lot of it is aboutstress. I had stress and did not manage it well. It’s a whole lifestyle change needed. 7:39You can’t just eatwhole foodsand expect to be disease-free. There’s a lot that goes with that that needs to happen. Stress Relief, Nature, Taking Breaks, and Making Healthy Eating Changes 9:28My favorite stress relief technique is being out in nature. I do a lot of hiking and that’s where I am at peace. My morning routine starts at 5:30. I write in my gratitude journal then I go outside and it’s mymeditationtime. 10:56We are bombarded with light from TV, computers, phones, etc. My surgeon told me how that messes with your circadian rhythm. 12:45My coworkers had been very stressed. We take a 15 minute walk in the morning and a 15 minute walk in the afternoon. You also get in touch with your spiritual side on a walk. 14:57Cancer is not like it used to be. It’s not a death sentence anymore. 18:30You need to recognize the root cause and fix it because you can’t keep going on the same way. 20:53My lentil soup recipe on my website,www.beyondnutritioncoaching.comis one of my favorites. 21:15I’m a big believer in essential oils. 23:49I try to teach my clients to crowd out your food instead of depriving yourself. I start with a huge salad with everyvegetableyou can imagine. Portion-wise that’s my main meal. Then I will have a little meat and/or maybe a little piece of sweet potato or quinoa. 24:40So the only thing you have to cut out is processed foods and refined sugar.

BC-056 Coach Paul Schmitendorf Speaks About The Importance of Having A Game Plan To Prevent, Heal From, and Prevent Recurrence From Cancer

The group of people most susceptible to getting cancer are those people who've already had it once and haven't made any changes to their diet, lifestyle, and other key risk factors. They typically haven't figured out what got them in trouble in the first place and addressed those issues. Whether you've had cancer once before or you'd like to never get cancer, having a simple cancer prevention game plan can make the difference. In this podcast we'll talk about how you can begin to take an active, conscious role in preventing cancer. At the Center for Advancement in Cancer Education we believe cancer is a highly preventable disease and that prevention starts with well thought out game plan. A simple game plan starts with a diet high in fruits and vegetables while reducing sugar, processed foods, meat, dairy, and omega-6 fats. Of course smoking is a key risk factor and should not be a part of a cancer prevention game plan. Getting 30 minutes of exercise a day can lower cancer risk considerably. Exercise can be as simple as going for a 30-minute walk on a daily basis. Another important aspect of a game plan it considering what negative or trapped emotions we're holding onto. Working through these by talking with a close friend or counselor can be an important step in living more joyfully and reducing cancer risk. It's also important to consider the level of stress in one's life. People tend to know when their lives have become overstressed. The key then is to take action steps to reduce stress, perhaps by changing jobs or ending toxic relationships. Simple stress relieving techniques like exercise, spending time in nature, meditation, EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique), yoga and Tai Chi can be helpful. Encouraging your "internal terrain" to detoxify on a regular basis is important for creating an inhospitable environment for cancer cells to grow. We can do this by fasting, cleansing, juice cleansing, sweating out toxins in a sauna, and improving detoxification through colon hydrotherapy. One final element to a cancer prevention game plan is to be mindful of sun exposure. Getting 20-30 minutes of sunlight on the skin each day, preferably in the morning, is important in helping the body to create Vitamin D. Vitamin D is actually a hormone that greatly reduces cancer risk when maintained at a healthy level. Supplementing with Vitamin D during the winter months is often necessary to maintain optimum levels. If making many changes feels overwhelming, then consider making one change each month. By the end of a year you'll have adopted a cancer prevention lifestyle. Prevention is the cure!

BC-055 How To Grow Cancer Fighting Broccoli Sprouts

What if you could grow one of the most potent sources of an apoptosis (cancer cell suicide) inducing compound right in your own kitchen? You can! And this can be accomplished easily in 5-7 days. I'm referring to broccoli sprouts, the most potent source of sulforaphane we know. Stalks of broccoli are a great source of sulforaphane, but broccoli seeds grown into sprouts have been shown to have an impressive 50 to 100 times more of this important compound. As if that weren't enough, they actually taste good and can be used in smoothies, on salads, sandwiches, or a topping on pretty much any dish. These sprouts can be grown in a few easy steps. Broccoli seeds can be purchased at your local health food store or online. The first step is to take a 1/2 cup of seeds and soak them overnight. Using a strainer or jar with a mesh screen they can be rinsed and then allowed to sit somewhere in your kitchen. It's important that the seeds stay moist throughout the process and are not placed in direct sunlight until the very end of the process. Continue the rinsing step 2 or 3 times a day over the next 3-5 days. Again, the key is to keep the seeds moist. On the 3rd or 4th day they will start sprouting. Once they have had a day or two to sprout they can be placed near a window or outside to receive some direct sunlight. This will help them green up and be ready to be eaten. Enjoy!

Intro To A Coach: Breast Cancer Survivor Melissa Eppard Talks About The Challenges Of Navigating Life After Treatment. What’s Next After the “Survivor Confetti” Has Been Swept Away?

Melissa Eppard is a 5 year survivor of triple negative breast cancer. Having been immersed in the holistic healing world before diagnosis, Melissa knew it was her calling to be a coach for cancer survivors. She is particularly passionate about being a support for people with a cancer diagnosis in the 20s-50s age group who deal with the complex nature of raising children, caring for aging parents and working. Often times finances are affected, relationships are affected and fear of recurrence is strong. Melissa believes that as a someone who has been through this experience she lends a great deal of support and wisdom. Some Of Her Favorite Tools For Healing: 5:58 I love to use guided visualization. There are some great scripts I use with people. I am also trained in EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) which is tapping on acupuncture meridian points with a issue in mind. It is a powerful transformational tool. 10:40 Humor was a good tool to help me heal. Children are real teachers that show us how to play and how to stay in the moment. How Beat Cancer’s Certified Holistic Cancer Coaching Course Helped Her to Heal Herself and Others 14:20 As a life coach and wanting to work with those with cancer, the course has filled the need for resources and deeper information on how to manage side effects and stay healthy when you have cancer. I love Beat Cancer’s approach in treating the person and not the cancer. 14:49 There is selfish component for taking the course also. I was a survivor of 4 years when I discovered the course and it has helped me to stay on track with things like nutrition and pumping the lymphatic system. There are so many great references to books and studies that I filled a whole notebook taking notes. 15:50 The depth of information from the course would’ve taken me years to compile. 16:12 It has inspired me to stay the course and keep eating the right foods and doing the right things. We Need Each Other To Heal 22:09 Together we heal. We need each other. My greatest source of hope and light for me when I was going through my battle was hearing from other cancer survivors that had been through it and were living their lives years later. When I got my diagnosis a black curtain fell and I could not see beyond it. 22:46 Connect with your future self. Have a dialogue with that part of you. What does that future person want for you? What special tools and gifts does your future self have to give you now so you can come through this empowered. Melissa coaches people remotely or in person in Kingston, NY. Please visit her blog site also. What you nurture will grow.

BC-052 Intro To A Coach Linda Jensen: How She Beat Stage 3 Breast Cancer and her Personal Journey to Becoming a Cancer Coach, Healing Arts Practitioner, and Author

After losing her husband to a very rare form of cancer and being diagnosed herself with stage III breast cancer and having 16 out of 18 lymph nodes removed, Linda knew it was time to learn more about integrative health, nourishing the body, spirit and mind, to heal and treat herself – simply to survive. Linda specializes in the alkaline/acidic effects on the body, truly defining healthy eating that is crucial for those who have been diagnosed with cancer. Her practice incorporates integrative lifestyle counseling and the Healing Arts Techniques of Jin Shin Jyutsu, Healing Touch, and Raindrop Therapy. Her philosophy is that optimal health is achieved by bringing balance and harmony to mind, body and spirit, starting at the cellular level. Listen to this podcast to learn her philosophies and what has kept her cancer free for 15 years. 3:14They thought I would have a reoccurrence within five years and possibly a lifespan of nine. It’s now 15 years and I’ve watched my three children grow up. There was a lot ofstressso I think that had a lot to do with it because there was nothing in my family tree. 3:36I was so grateful and luck 3:36I was so grateful and lucky to have found Dr. Susan Silberstein. She was my lifeline. Through her books, her website and her teachings I found that I wanted to take her class (Holistic Cancer Coaching Course) and realized with this toolbox of information that I had I wanted to share it with others. 4:22I just wanted to help people so I went to nonprofit organizations. A lot of people can’t afford to pay $250 an hour for a nutritionist. I did a lot of nonprofit work and since 2010 have counseled over 800 people. 4:55I will always be grateful to her (Dr Susan Silberstein) and her teachings and what she’s brought to the cancer community itself. 5:36She (Dr Susan) lead me onto the path of not only wanting to help others, but realizing that you can have your nutrition and do the right things and feed your body and food as medicine, but then life hits you and stress and just so much that goes on that are cells as energy react to that puts us in a bad spot. That’s why I started to learn about Jin Shin Jyutsu, healing energy medicines, herbs, crystals, sound healing. 8:58I’m a mobile office essentially because then I can offer my services at very low cost. 9:44I took the path less traveled and found that it’s been a very good path. 10:05I wroteSurvolve. I never like the word survivor because I believe we survived, yet we evolve and that’s where that came from. 12:13with Dr. Susan‘smeal plan, you can fill that out and look at foods that you’re eating and replace them and eliminate others. 15:03You really need a coach and some tools and someone to follow you. You need that kind of support because that’s a big lifestyle change and it’s overwhelming to just get the diagnosis. Coaches can bridge the gap between the medical community and alternative options and what’s available is tremendous. 16:55Energy therapies are so important.Meditationand anything that can take your mind off that problem. Something as simple as writing something down and burning it. A ritual to make you feel better and say, OK that’s gone. On to the next thing. 17:35I have found that being grateful, and also a little mantra I found when I was diagnosed, that someone has it worse. So let me be thankful for what I do have. 18:57Her websitewww.kitchenchemotherapy.comexplains her services and has recipes, education and resources.
