In the early 1900’s, infections were the number one killer in the human society. Plague, tuberculosis, syphilis, typhoid and staph infections caused the highest mortality. The advent of antibiotics and vaccines slowly got the better of these infectious diseases … Fast forward a century and now
While bugs may be implicated in some rare cancers, generally speaking the “BIG 4” have just one thing in common:
Talking about cancers specifically, “One out of every three men and one in every two women are going to be diagnosed with Cancer in their lifetime”. A staggering number and a risk to our future.
What is even more shocking is the number one cause of death in kids today is not trauma – rather CANCER!
Cancer has not been native to human beings. Our bodies have the ability to heal and self regulate. We have an amazing immune system, that can kill these “deregulated cells”. However, if the immune system is weak (such as in AIDS or after Transplant) these cancer cells take over and manifest overt symptoms.
Dear Friends, modern medicine, by way of surgery, chemotherapy and radiation therapy can target the physical disease, however if we don’t address the “soil” in which these cancer cells have “sprouted”, we will never be able to win our battle against cancer.
When the environment we provide to our body becomes toxic, we start to see diseases like cancer. When I say “toxic environment” it’s not just the air we breath. The toxin or the poison I am referring to is the one that we put in our mouth ”Processed Foods” and the one that brews in our mind “Stress”.
Now is the time to find clarity and confidence in navigating your emotional, physical, energetic and mental well being.
Meet Brian who never smoked or drank heavy and was shocked to find that he had esophageal cancer in 2012. He underwent chemotherapy and radiation followed by major esophageal surgery to remove cancer and associated lymph glands.
Brian made a remarkable recovery from his surgery and is completely cancer free for 4 years after his operation. The pathologists struggled to find cancer cells in the removed portion of his oesophagus and lymph glands.
Brian is a minister in the church, always smiling and his favourite mantra is “Praise the Lord”. He personifies the “Attitude of Gratitude”
Was Brian’s attitude the reason for his amazing outcome with a diagnosis as dreaded as cancer?

It may be overlooked that mental health may seem to be of little significance in cancer treatment, however, in a well structured study done on women with breast cancers, it was found that women with history of depression had 2.5 times higher risk of cancer recurrence when compared with mentally healthy women. Stress, guilt and anger suppressed over a prolonged period of time is toxic and adversely affects our immune system.

Tools to support the grief, depression, anxiety, negative thoughts, dietary needs and physical needs all created as a result of cancer diagnosis and treatments, are integrated into a program of relaxation, nurturing and care.
CHANGE YOUR CANCER STORY is the brain child of three medical professionals who have made their life mission to bring to you an integrated overview of “tools” that can create the internal and external environment for cancer healing.
We look forward to helping you CHANGE YOUR CANCER STORY.
Just like a tree our body knows how to repair, regenerate and heal if it is given the right nutrients and environment. The speakers specialise in incorporating a whole person approach to cancer care, that integrates with your ongoing medical treatment.
This event is fully catered so booking is essential.
Hear from Brian and Dorothy, both cancer survivors who will share their story on how priniciples learnt from the workshop helped them navigate their cancer journey.
