The Topic is Cancer.
I don’t have a personal history with Cancer. I know it’s in my family at the cousin or relative level but because my family is what it is, I have had no contact with those experiences.
We all have heard that cancer is within us all. I think about that all the time. Do you?
I haven’t lost a dear friend to cancer, or a child or a parent. Yet I have watched, heard, cried and have kept many in my thoughts as they bravely survive
In my work I find once a client is in the machinery of the “c” word, the medical perspective that is – they have little room for alternative solutions. They are scared out of their minds. I respect this. Cancer isn’t something one takes lightly. Those who have a belief in the value of high quality nutritional supplements do come to me and we work together to detox their body carefully from all the poisons of chemo and radiation. We then start slowly rebuilding immunity by offering quality nutrition.
Years and years ago, as a young mom I remember hearing the word carcinogenic. I had never heard of that before. The definition of carcinogenic is any substance or agent that tends to produce a cancer. In my everyday world there were carcinogenic ingredients in just about everything!! I was shocked and horrified. Still am. This is when I began to personally step into a path of choice. I tried very hard to choose alternative meats, eggs, dairy, cleaning products, personal care and more.
What bothers me the most is why we HAVE to choose. WHY are products produced that have carcinogenic substances in them in the first place? This just boggles my mind.
I wish that the billions of dollars raised to support research for a cure for cancer would instead be funelled to the cause. In my mind the cause of cancer is what we eat, breathe, and put on our bodies. It’s what we fill our homes with. What if we started over and manufactured clean products? What if all carcinogenic substances were simply no longer allowed?
We all know that the plastic shopping bags are a major contribution to pollution. Stop making them. Period. Life still happened before the age of the plastic bag. We could figure it out. What if fast food, the single largest contributor to obesity today was outlawed? A rather out there thought I know. Is fast food convenient ? Is our life fast paced ? What if we paused in our fast lives and packed a lunch. What if high fructose corn syrup was banned? Like gone. As a matter of fact HFCS is at the root of such horrific illness if we stopped making it imagine the possibilities?
Are my ideas that off the wall? Or could it be that simple?
I could go on and on and it would just be my very own personal rant and opinion.
I don’t really know if our world will really look any different in my life time.
I also don’t have all the answers either.
I do know that if you are searching, just like I was twenty years ago — it’s all about choices
Where to start?
One place to start is to stitch to less toxic cleaning products.
