Preventable: Protecting Our Largest Organ Documentary!

Have you seen the new documentary about eczema, topical steroid addiction and withdrawal? It’s called Preventable: Protecting Our Largest Organ and its a must watch and share! Briana has worked so hard at bringing this documentary to fruition and it’s awesome that we can give back for her efforts with the GoFundMe set up for her below! This documentary brought up so many emotions for me, it brought me back to the worst stages of my own topical steroid withdrawal process. There’s so much that the medical community needs to know about eczema and how dangerous these medications are to our health. I know that this doc is going to prevent so many from going down the awful path that thousands have gone down with these medications. This dis-ease is preventable, and steroids are not the answer, there are ways to naturally heal from the inside out…steroids only act as a band-aid and a temporary solution. Please watch, and share with anyone you know using steroids, who has eczema and those in the dermatology field. If you can, please donate to Brianna for all of her hard work and sacrifice. I see the passion that she put into this project and she deserves our support.

Change Your Speech!

🌈Just thought of this today and wanted to share to give encouragement and a different perspective in the eczema recovery process.🌈

Having a positive, faithful mindset is so important when recovering from dis-ease. The body is so amazing at self healing, we just have to give it the right environment to thrive…alkaline plant based foods, hydration, sunlight, rest, exercise, loving words of affirmation and the right positive attitude. By saying faithful words we allow our subconscious to accept the idea that we WILL be free of dis-ease.

🌟Saying “I’m healing from eczema” tells our mind that the healing is taking place NOW! We must say the things that we want, call it into existence before it has been manifested…”I am healed”, “my skin is smooth, supple, healthy, wrinkle and symptoms free”…speak these words into existence over and over…train your mind to believe it before you see it! So when you talk to someone and they see symptoms showing up on your skin, instead of saying, “ I have eczema” say “I’M HEALING FROM ECZEMA”! Don’t own that dis-ease, stir up your faith and own the freedom of recovering from the dis-ease! 💚

10 Years Cancer Free!

I can’t believe 10 years have passed since my Hodgkin’s Lymphoma stage 3b diagnosis! I thank God everyday that He brought me through, & stronger than ever, with a deep passion for natural healing🙏🏽.

I mark today as my 10th year cancer free, as this was the day that I completed my very last chemo treatment. I did 6 months of chemo, 2x a month. I try to not live with regrets, & I must admit, it’s something that I still struggle with even ten years later…the regret of not looking towards alternative routes of healing instead of using chemo (which my oncologist told me has a half life of 10-12 years in the body!). I WISH I had all of knowledge that I have now about healing from the inside out & I WISH I was in the right head space to do so. I just know in my gut that 23 years of topical steroid use for eczema at the time contributed to the cancer. Plus just not taking care of my health in general, eating terribly etc. Clearly in retrospect I would’ve done things much different, BUT I’ve learned that everything happens the way it should, in its own divine time, in its own way. Some background to my diagnosis…I was 23 years old, I had graduated college the year before, the stress of school really took its toll on my body & my skin & overall health was going downhill fast. It’s like I could feel it the moment I graduated…like I was just holding out the last couple of months, struggling to make it through. I didn’t know anything about stopping the steroids and looking towards natural routes of healing, I had no intention of living a healthy lifestyle…I became reclusive because of the way my skin looked as it was getting worse and it was hard for me to even look in the mirror, hence why I had no idea of the lump growing in my clavicle. It was only until I went for a regular check up with a new primary care doc did she point out the lump. Many needle biopsies at the ENT doc later which were inconclusive, then to surgery of the removal of the golf ball sized mass which then led to the diagnosis of cancer.

My world stopped, in disbelief I felt like once again my body was broken. I had a mediport put into my chest to administer chemo…which my body literally pushed out weeks later! It’s like my body was screaming to me that it didn’t want chemo, & to find another way! I then had to have multiple PICC lines in my arms to take the chemo (multiple because my skin continually got infected from the PICC lines). Thank the Lord I didn’t feel sick, not once during chemo & that I didn’t lose all of my hair, just some of it, & it came back thicker than before! Everyone told me “you’ll be stronger after all of this” & it’s so true! In times of fear, I’ve told myself “if I can get through cancer like a boss then I can get through anything!” Although it took me 3 more years to learn about the danger of topical steroids, within that time I was seeking a better way of living, which allowed me to gradually change my lifestyle to a healthier one. I continued to hunger for knowledge and when I learned about naturally healing eczema I knew it was the direction I needed to be in. If you are dealing with a health issue, and/or cancer I highly recommend looking into alternative treatments, using food as medicine. Become knowledgeable on all of the resources out there…look into the Gerson Therapy, movies like The Truth About Cancer, What the Health, Forks Over Knives, books like The China Study by T. Colin Campbell, and amazing doctors like Dr.Greger are all full of great info to get you on the right path. I now know of how amazing our bodies are at self healing, that anything is possible and we just need to give the body the right tools to help it heal.

I’m cancer free and I give all thanks to God for getting me through & for continuing to repair my body! 💙

Get Out in Nature<3

🌤🌿🌸Getting out in nature is so healing for the body and soul. Just having the warm sun on your skin, feeling the cool breeze and listening to the sounds of the birds and the wind can have such a calming and healing effect on us. 🌤🌿🌸

Saying healing mantras while closing your eyes and absorbing the sun rays is a wonderful routine one can do as well! 💛 I recently heard this mantra from a detox specialist and I want to share it with you all:

“I trust in my body. I listen to my body. I allow my body to heal.”

Your body doesn’t make any mistakes, it knows exactly what it needs to do to self-heal, we just have to give it the right tools to help it out! Always be loving and kind to yourself and only speak life into your body. Your positive thoughts alone can effect positive healing. Continue to envision your skin healthy, smooth and symptom-free and it WILL manifest 🙏🏽 I hope everyone has a great weekend! 🌼🌤🌿🌸
