I hope my story inspires others to connect to themselves and explore deep within the heart for much needed healing. There is always hope and there is always personal choice to view every life experience in a new way. My love and encouragement to all on this journey!

PurpleHair, we happy that you found an approach that works best for you, and that you are experiencing positive effects on your journey.

We want to remind our readers that we at Breastcancer.org supports complementary medicine not alternative medicine. Complementary medicine is not alternative medicine.

Complementary medicine is USED WITH evidence-based conventional care. Alternative medicine is USED INSTEAD OF conventional medicine.Because complementary medicine can be combined or integrated with conventional medical treatment, it is also called "integrative medicine." We encourage you to talk with your doctors, and understand the research before making your treatment decisions. Here are a few links containing information that could be helpful:

I had to respond to this thread because of an experience that I had many years ago. I worked as a nurse for many years, and while working in a long term care facility I encountered a resident who had been diagnosed with a very large.....above 5cm...breast cancer. She had a diagnosis of schizophrenia, or schizoaffective disorder as I remember. Well, she told me that she ignored the tumor because she truly and fervently believed that Jesus would heal her. Sure enough, I went to her medical record and read that the Drs. at that time could find no evidence of the tumor after years of her refusing treatment. A spontaneous "remission", a miracle? I truly don't know. But I do know I never forgot this woman as she had the most luminous smile, and such a kind demeanor about her.

Many years later I was diagnosed with breast cancer, twice to be exact. Who really knows what goes on with healing? I sure don't. But one thing I will never do is dismiss anyone's power to be healed. It's a wondrous thing for sure

I know a woman who believed in self-healing. I sat next to her in an integrative medicine infusion room where she was getting Vitamin C infusions. She was a gentle soul.  I tried to diplomatically educate her in a low-key way, because her avoidance of medical care was based not only on her beliefs about self-healing, but also some misconceptions about cancer care.

She died a few weeks after I met her.

Spontaneous remission does exist, there is no controversy here. It may or may not be triggered by some intentional change in lifestyle, this remains to be understood. However, spontaneous remission has higher rates of cancer coming back later, so conventional treatment may still have some value even for the lucky ones to experience it.

That is so sad windingshores. I cringe when I hear that same thing from women who are positive their way is the best way. They certainly have a right to their beliefs whether it’s based on scientific evidence or not because it’s in God’s hands, which it is, and the natural way is the safest way.

None of us wanted to endure radiation or chemo and the side effects that come with those treatments but as of now they are the treatments for breast cancer. No they don’t work for everyone but that doesn’t mean you abandon them altogether IMO.

I am now reading Mitochondria and the Future of Medicine.

It is interesting that so many cannot entertain the idea of spontaneous healing, implying results that the medical community cannot explain, and yet have no problem with the medical community misusing the word “cure” which regarding bc is not possible yet. Dormancy, remissions absolutely do happen. It is not possible to cure a disease we still do not know the root cause.

I didn't read the blog. But, as a complimentary approach to traditional medical treament for bc, I think tackling emotional issues can be hugely helpful for a person's well-being. For myself, I find there are layers and layers of emotional matters that I've addressed a little at a time over the 8+ years I've been dealing with metastatic bc.

It started during the first year right after I was diagnosed. I immediately started to honor myself more by not doing things out of obligation and to stop spending time with people who did not add anything to my life. I also read an excellent book called “Getting Well Again" published quite awhile ago. One chapter asked a series of personal questions on different issues in a person's life and how they felt about them, and the reader was instructed to write down the answers, holding nothing back. Let me tell you, five years later I came across my answers in a notebook, and I was literally cracking up reading about all the anger and resentment I'd bottled up inside towards some people and situations in my life. Cracking up because after five years, I had come a long, long way from those feelings. And I was proud for being brutally honest with myself. I did not share my answers with another soul, but it helped me find a starting place where I could begin to make changes in my life.

It can be easy to fall back into old relationship patterns without realizing it, so from time to time, I casually assess how my life is going and make adjustments. I've dealt with matters of faith, marriage, mother in law, siblings and more. Not intensely, tho, but gradually over time.

Redgirl, I also read Radical Remission and recommend it to others.

I'm very grateful for my life and ALL my experiences as they have gotten me to my current state of being which is an incredible connection of the power of the human spirit. I continue to share on my blog posts at least monthly even though most of my posts don't address cancer specifically, they do address my healing journey towards higher states of consciousness:

https://from3dto5dloveinaction.blogspot.com/

For some, my experiences of energy and bliss vibrations are very "far out" and many will never understand. But for a few, my experiences may resonate, so that is why I share on this forum, even though it's so out of the ordinary...my choices and my experiences.

What does expansion of consciousness have to do with healing breast cancer? In MY case, everything. I feel intense joy and bliss most of the time and increasingly so as I continue with the inner healing work. Any pain in my body quickly dissolves when I meditate and "process" the dense emotions behind the pain, which is often caused by fear, confusions, anger, grief and a sense of hopelessness. Many of you do not believe that mental and emotional states are really just energy projected through our minds and thus, your choices will be limited because of a lack of awareness that all is really vibration energy (study Quantum physics). For those who are more open minded, then energy work can be trans-formative. What is illness and dis-ease really? Is it a feeling of non-well being in the body? Yes, our bodies will all die. But do we not want to live feeling well, maybe feeling bliss and joy instead of pain and fear? The human heart seeks the answers to suffering but the human mind will fight against. If you are in the darkness, look deeper into your heart and soul.

I have used pain and fear as sign posts to move into it, release it, and move beyond it. We are eternal souls on a journey. Death of the body need not be feared or resisted. Fear and resistance to the unknown limits our perspective and choices. Self love and forgiveness is a powerful tool along the way. I don't label myself as a cancer victim, I'm so much more than that and I'm so much more powerful than I can ever imagine. I know there are many here suffering and I can only offer my deepest compassion and empathy as I have traveled an inner journey and witnessed great suffering within my own being. The time is not to condemn, compare, blame or judge one another for we are all worthy of love, forgiveness, and yes, healing. We are all worthy. The feminine soul of humanity has suffered and has been suppressed and wounded for eons; a heavy burden in our hearts/breasts. It's time to lighten up and release it with love, unity, self-awareness of who we are, which is more than a sick body, more than a limited human mind. I will continue to meditate and send energy of love to all who suffer and one day we will suffer as a collective no more. I love you all no matter where you are on your healing journey or what your choices, we are all in this together!

Purplehair...I read some of your posts. You said you were stage 2? and that you had PET scan and a CT scan? If no nodes were positive then how did you get your scans approved? I was stage 3 when I entered cancer land. I had follow up scans that showed my mets. the following week, my insurance company sent a letter saying these tests were not approved due to the ASCO recomendation.

this is copied from cancer.net

Recommendation

ASCO recommends that the following imaging tests are not used for staging DCIS or stage I or II breast cancers where there are no signs that the disease has spread:

  • CT scan
  • PET scan
  • Bone scan

DCIS and stage I or II breast cancers have a low risk of having spread outside of the breast and nearby lymph nodes when diagnosed. Research on these tests has shown that they are often falsely positive (the results say there is cancer when there is not), expose people to unnecessary radiation, and do not help lengthen lives.

Best of luck to you if you really do have cancer.

I am a firm believer of a complimentary treatment and not substitution. We are not talking about general ailments like cold and allergies which might get cured with some rest. it's cancer and it can be fatal. there is no point playing with the fire just to prove a point. having faith in God or a healer is is no doubt relaxing but it doesn't mean that one does no effort to heal himself and rely solely on the mercy of god to get rid of the dreaded disease. i am a string believer that god help those who help themselves; so u need help (blessing) first help yourself, let god see and appreciate your efforts and then ask for blessings.

i have been practicing yoga for a year now along with breathing exercises and it has work magically for me not only physically by making me more active and resilient but also by calming my soul. i am less anxious now and have more love and gratitude to the people around me. lifestyle changes can definitely help healing earlier than later but they are supplementary to the primary treatment for cancer and do not hold a position of a wholesome treatment plan. think wisely and reap the fruit of your wisdom else, stay ignorant and stay foolish..
