In August, 2010, I was diagnosed with bladder cancer. Did I ever think it would happen to me? not a chance, but it did... On August 26th, my ct scan showed my tumour to be approximately the size of a golf ball! I was scheduled to have surgery with the first available date in November…3 months away. The wait initially seemed like forever, but I insisted on incorporating integrative cancer care approaches in my treatment, which included regular Vitamin C infusions, elements of orthomolecular medicine, long walks in the forest (my refuge) and the basics for a healthy life. My surgery day finally came and I had my tumour removed. On November 22, 2010, I had an appointment to remove my catheter and that’s when I got the news – the incredible news that my tumour had actually shrunk to the size of a penny! I couldn’t believe it, in 87 days, my tumour shrank from the size of a golf ball, to that of a penny… thanks to the integrative non-traditional treatments that I was fortunate enough to try (I did not do any form of chemotherapy in this interval between diagnosis and surgery). My treatment choices made the surgery so much simpler than expected and my healing, almost effortless.
One of my passions is song-writing… my songs and poetry help me evolve and grow and I’d like to share this one with you…
A slow walk in the forest
A slow walk in the forest daily, is something I must do,
It gives me inspiration, so I can write this song for you,
The energy in the forest, fills me with golden rays of sun,
It makes me energetic, so I can sing and dance and run.
The trees grow straight and tall, they reach halfway to the stars,
Energy descends from heaven, grows tree trunks thick as cars,
The air’s so clean, the sun so bright, my steps so easy, my steps so light.
A slow walk in the forest, instills peaceful insight, and makes all things just right.
A daily walk in the forest, is something that I must do,
It makes me strong a healthy, and it can do the same for you,
There is peace, harmony and stillness, it permeates the air,
The natural sounds and colour, fills your spirit with universal care.
For beauty, symmetry, and love is, something tangible that you can feel,
A daily walk in the forest, brings out the best in you, it’s free, oh what a deal!post a comment >
