It looks like this list came out just before the release of my new book, Red Sunshine,- now distributed by Random House. As a pathologist who specializes in breast cancer diagnosis, I never expected to see my own malignant cells under the microscope. But at 33 years old, shortly after the birth of my second child - I was diagnosed with Stage 3 breast cancer.  Believe me, being a physician did not make me any less terrified of both my treatment and my future. But I discovered that the process can be enlightening in so many ways as well. There are lots of great guidebooks out there - but sometimes a glimpse of the journey from someone who has been through it is just what the doctor ordered!

Hi There. The Screech Owls of Breast Cancer by Eugene G Breen is a must read for all those young women and girls who do not want to get cancer. It is a provocative and controversial read of 60 pages and says what no one is saying. It is based on national statistics and cancer trends and needs to be studied.

I haven't written anything for a while, but just logged in and came across the thread above about recommended reading. In my  posts in the past, I've gone on about how brilliant I think a book I read is, so would like the moderators to consider adding it to the recommended reading list. It's called Emotional Support  through Breast Cancer and it's by a psychologist who's had breast cancer herself. She's called Dr Cordelia Galgut. What I like is that she tells it how it is! She understands that we don't 'just bounce back to normal' because our 'normal' is different from what it used to be. She reminds us that it's 'normal' to feel frightened and angry, etc. Anyway, maybe you could take a look, it's on Amazon under her name - Cordelia Galgut. I definitely think it's worth recommending to women and their families.

I would like to recommend the book "Tripping Over the Truth: How the Metabolic Theory of Cancer is overturning one of medicine's most entrenched paradigms" by Christopher Travis. It presents the history of cancer research and how we got to the present. It also provides an alternate theory that is very promising for the prevention and treatment of cancer

Have you ever read this book by Anita Moorjani called "Dying to Be Me: My Journey from Cancer, to Near Death, to True Healing"?

It's about another Radical Remission story, it's actually one of the most well documented cases of miraculous remission. I've met Anita in person in 2017 and she is very real and her truth an experiences moves the heart. Her message, very much like mine, is to just live life according to your own inner soul's promptings regardless of what messages are coming from society, friends, family and the world at large. Her motto is "go and live life fearlessly!" Your soul has your back, it really does.

Dr. Bruce Lipton provides the science behind how our beliefs, thoughts, emotions affect the energetic field in and around the body. This energy field informs our cells both negatively or positively depending on our projections into the field. That is why we are all very powerful creators. It's amazing stuff. Breathe that in.

I am energy sensitive. I don't see auras but I feel energy as vibration and sensations within my body. A lot of people are sensitive to energy, especially women. You can become more aware of your energy field by tuning into the heart area. The heart has a very strong energy vortex and it influences the entire body system. It really does. That's why the healing practice of self love always centers in the heart. If you breathe into the heart space you will start to sense your energy. Even if initially all you feel is the breath going in and out that is energy. Breath is energy. You are the breath. Without breath you don't exist. If you hold your breath or breathe really shallow all the time (stress will cause this breathing pattern) you restrict life force flow of energy into your body which will eventually cause illness in the body.

I believe my body began to clear the tumor when I had released all the stuck emotions within my energy field. Because I am energy sensitive I felt it streaming out of my core intensely. Other people might experience release of emotions like having a really good cry that racks your whole body and afterwards you feel lighter, it is still energy releasing. Even if you jump up and down and allow yourself to RAGE against the world. That is healing. That is releasing stuck energy. I encourage all to take this inner journey into the heart. Take a break from the world "out there" and be with yourself. Love yourself, love all of yourself. If there is resistance to this in any part of you, just that, say "I love and accept any part of me that doesn't want my love." I've gone deep enough to experience that resistance to love is a very real hurdle of dense stuck energy within the human experience. We frankly don't feel worthy of love, so say "I love and accept the part of me that doesn't feel worthy of love." You can't overcome resistance with force or judgement. Only unconditional love is powerful enough. Be patient and allow. Just your intention to release will start the process rolling. Humans are a play of both darkness and light. Use the light to love the dark back into the light. FORGIVE and LET GO of anything you encounter on your journey that restricts the flow of love. Having Breast Cancer is a very very high calling. It's not a curse or punishment. You are powerful. There is nothing wrong with you and you are not experiencing dumb luck. It is a divine tap on the shoulder, and invitation. The mind might resist and throw thoughts "this is woo woo, or I'm not powerful my life is in shambles, I'm don't know how or what to do about this or that, or little innocent child die of cancer all the time, if they don't deserve healing then who am I to think I can heal myself...blah blah, the resisting thoughts will flow. Like I said there is so much resistance stored in the human body, so many limiting thoughts and belief. Just love it all back into the heart. You are you. Your experience is all that matters. Leave the world out there and go within. Get to truly know yourself and start peeling away the onion layers so you get live freely and BE who you really are.

No matter what choices we make regarding our treatment plans (honor all choices) this practice of self love will help you heal. And if you practice this self love and letting go, inner peace is the reward. The mind is calm and present not always going off into anxiety about relapse or what ifs. If it does, you love it back into the heart again and again. Being present and in love with life is I feel the whole point to life. Where the mind goes the body follows. Our bodies all eventually expire. Breathe that in and accept that. How we live (in love or fear) is what counts. I am not against fear. Fear is part of the experience. It doesn't need to run our lives, so love fear, love it back into the heart, so your energy can be renewed thus regenerate the cells of the body.
