Pure Plant Nation preview

If you missed the preview of this film you must come see it in July. It releases on 7/4. It's everything I've been living & telling for the last 7 years! Nelson Campbell did an amazing job. I'm a huge fan of his work and his fathers book The China Study. It's what led me  on my journey to better health and consciousness. This film is a MUST see as was Forks Over Knives. I remember when Brian Wendall allowed us to preview his first film inystic CT. Dr Esselstyn himself arrived in Stonington to lecture. We asked Colin Campbell to lecture at my wellness center and he did so over the phone to our listeners. 
It was such a success- the fMystic Fire Deparemt had to ask us to close our doors because our local theater couldn't contain the crowd!
More to come about viewing this in our area! Maybe you will even see me as a surprise appearance.  

The Real Truth About Health

I'm at the first ever 10-day Free seminar at the Caribe Royal resort in Orlando Fl where 29 of the worlds leading authorities have come together to lecture on important topics such as global warming, nutrition & radiation. I've met some of the most incredible people. 
The Life Transformation Program , the Dr Days program and the Comprehensive Cancer Wellness Program at Hippocrates institute were discussed yesterday. 
I am both proud and grateful to be a product of all three and a co-founder with Caroline Bryan of the doctors program.

We can't express how wonderful it has been to hear all the fabulous testimonials.

Dr Days at Hippocrates Institue

A new perspective

Six yeas after initial cancer I've learned that feeling strong & having a strong immune system are not always the same thing. I've been re-educated about the
effects of sugar on my immune system and how my departure from my plant based lifestyle has promoted cancer once again. Live & learn. It's a humbling process - you never stop learning:)
I regret to inform that fructose from fruit is even considered a "bad" sugar when it comes to cancer!
According to Hippocrates Health Institute where I spent last April /May, I should be fruit free for 2 years & eating a diet rich in sprouts. I'm back on wheat grass but this time making all the corrections to my first try at this. Failure is part of success. Not to worry- the body is resilient & my new lifestyle took 40lbs off my frame already!

I'm taking a leave from business & focussing on health & education for the next few months. Please follow If I had this knowledge s few years ago- much of what I'm dealing with may have been avoided. It's not too late for anyone!
I had a metastasis to my spine. It was painful and prevented me from walking. The reoccurrence reminds me every day that we should not take things for granted. Feeling & looking good is no indication of the dangers that lie within what we are eating and telling ourselves.
The good news is that dis-ease can be reversed with a plant based diet and a change in lifestyle! Drs Brian & Anna Maria Clement have this knowledge to share with each of you at
Rest assured I will be up & walking again. My hope is to mentor others & organize group trips to their center in West Palm Beach! Once you experience this place- you'll want to return again too:)

Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead is a fantastic DVD for anyone seeking better health not just Weight Loss.

Greg and I experienced the benefits of juicing first hand when we decided to ditch the "medical answer" to my stage 3 cancer back in 2008. We passed this info on to many of our friends and neighbors who have adapted a raw plant based lifestyle. Joe Cross did a marvelous job with this film. We highly recommend it. We noticed that the Breville Juicers are out of stock in many places- probably as a result of Joe & Phil's incredible stories! Enjoy :)

Negative Ions Now Available in 3 Locations In CT & RI Jackie & Greg Explain Health Benefits of Simulated Earthing


Warning: This Movie Could Save Your Life

Pre-Orders are being taken currently by Dr. Jackie Campisi 860 908 7432
Each Energy Armor site will provide books and DVD's in these locations:

Stamford Town Center, CT
Providence Place Mall, RI
Westfarms Mall in Hartford CT

FORKS OVER KNIVES examines the profound claim that most, if not all, of the degenerative diseases that afflict us can be controlled, or even reversed, by rejecting animal-based and processed foods.
The major storyline traces the personal journeys of Dr. T. Colin Campbell, a nutritional biochemist from Cornell University, and Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, a former top surgeon at the world renowned Cleveland Clinic. Inspired by remarkable discoveries they made, these men conducted several groundbreaking studies. Their separate research led them to the same startling conclusion: degenerative diseases like heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and even several forms of cancer, could almost always be prevented—and in many cases reversed—by adopting a whole foods, plant-based diet.

The idea of food as medicine is put to the test. Cameras follow “reality patients” who have chronic conditions from heart disease to diabetes. Doctors teach these patients how to adopt a whole foods plant-based diet as the primary approach to treat their ailments—while the challenges and triumphs of their journeys are revealed.
The film features leading experts on health and tackles the issue of diet and disease in a way that will have people talking for years.

Dirty Electricity: Are u Protected? iPods, Kindles and Phones Oh My!!

Get grounded.  Greg and I love this FREE technology.  You can get it by walking barefoot on the ground but are we protected when we come indoors?  The book Earthing by Dr. Stephen Sinatra (cardiologist); Clint Ober & Martin Zucker will explain how touching the earch can reduce blood pressure among other things. Click the link above to see what you can do to protect yourself from electrical devices.
We even opened a Kiosk on the 1st floor of the Providence Place Mall (right near the Apple Store) to help teach people about negative ions with  Come check us out!

Earthing is about grounding your body to feel better.

Our bodies are electrical - the heart, brain, muscles, cells and all body systems function electrically. Even our emotions are literally “energy in motion.” Today we live insulated from earth and our bodies become electrically stressed and charged with inflammation and chronic pain, a very unnatural state.

The effect of Earthing is that it discharges electrical stress and restores the body’s natural and stable electrical state.
To experience the profound effects that Earthing has in reducing stress and chronic pain: go outdoors and place your bare feet directly on the earth and ground yourself for thirty minutes.
The Earthing products available on this site are for “use” to get grounded when indoors. They are "barefoot substitutes."

From Alternative Health to Alternative Finance

After learning all that was hidden from the public eye with respect to nutrition & alternative health, we discovered there was also much to uncover in the area of financial planning.  Greg and I have teamed up with Family 1st Finanacial to produce an educational seminar series at Connecticut College that will unearth some of the myths and secrets of Retirement Planning.  We have created a fun and simple slide presentation along with door prizes and dinner entertainment that will sure to captivate our audience's attention and help them navigate thru some of the most challenging financial decisions they will make (just as I had to do with cancer)
Now that we've regained our health, we are learning to take responsibility of our finances while helping others to do the same.  Call 860 908 7432 for details or to learn about our next event.

The movie will not be out in March as we'll have to wait until May according to Brian Wendal, Executive Producer.  Take it from me: it's worth the wait! But dont' wait for the movie, get the books ahead of time. The China Study, Preventing and Reversing Heart Disease and my recent favorite: The Hundred-Year Lie.

Beating Breast Cancer- Dr. Mercola's recent report

Hope you all had a healthy, romantic Valentines Day.  It's been 3 years in my recovery from breast cancer.
I find that many articles published tend to promote a product but this one offers great information that I've experienced first hand. I would highlight Vit D, Melatonin (from sleep not suppliments), CoQ10 Ubiquonol, Black Cohosh, Primrose Oil and Green Tea along with a GREEN drink everyday.  Other solutions mentioned were also part of my personal regimen.

The Hundred Year Lie

You can purchase this book online or download it to your Kindle as Greg has done. We have been reading it's contents each day.  We are just as facinated by this work as we were when we read the China Study 3 years ago.  There are several movies you can watch regarding toxic chemicals in our food supply.  I think it's time to have another in-home showing of two of my favorites.  More to come!

Wellness Concierge Closes for the New Year

The center is closed but the message is alive and well.  The location of 23 Clara Drive has been closed.  Due to an underutilization of the space, we were forced to close our doors last December.  I will always be a supporter of alternative health practices and will continue to refer my clients to the many practitianers who were members of the center.  It is my hope that each of you will view the film Forks Over Knives which illustrates the very path I chose to take over 3 years ago.  Although I'm not featured in this particular movie, it embodies everything I've been blogging about and has vindicated some of the 'radical' changes that I have made in my life and my career. Many of you know that I have returned to practice 1 day per week at Professional Eye Care in Waterford CT.  I am accepting new clients and would be happy to share my first hand knowledge of this film and subject matter as part of our consultation.  Feel free to call 860 442-5058 for an appointment.

Talk Radio?

I was asked yesterday by Executive Producer, Mark Pace, to host a show on Voice America and World Talk Radio.  I was of course very flattered but would be interested to know how many of you would listen to the show or be interested in being a guest on my program?  I will give it some thought over the next few weeks and perhaps we could put together a great show about how plant based diets have impacted our lives.  I welcome your thoughts and look foward to a new chapter- internet broadcasting!  What a great way to spread the message!

Does Milk Do A Body Good?  A cow's body yes...if it is a calf.  Milk has growth hormones that help a baby grow and that's not all....cancer cells grow in the presence of these hormones as well say Ailia Alamoyed in her very informative lecture and book seen here.  She claims that the best research is to try cutting out dairy for 2 weeks and see for yourself.  Imagine helping autistic children, learning disabilities and a host of other things!

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month: Being "aware" and actually DOING something about it are 2 different entities

So many times I wanted to say somthing like this to those advertising pink parafanalia and "walk-a-thoners" who are out looking for a cure in the backyards of big pharma and stepping over carrots to pick up pills!  I love this article and think that more people should take heed.  Let's ask some questions before we drink the pink coolaid full of high fructose corn syrum - in the name of raising awareness.  To all of my sisters who are in "remission"...let's not propagate the 'wear and scare' pink ribbon program....let's put our efforts to good use by teaching others about the value of plant based diets!

We were both big fans of the work done by Dr. Colin Campbell in the China Study.  We learned about Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn's work as a result of reading this masterpiece.  We later learned that there is movie comming out next Spring about these 2 men and their research.  I am proud to say that we will be hosting a private preview of this film in December 2010.  If you would like more information, please join our mailing list at click the link in the title to view more photos

Sadly, the event didn't make the papers but you can read the press release below:

  Heart Disease Reversible At Any Age Says Cleveland Clinic Doctor

An enthusiastic crowd of over 100 was treated to a informative lecture by Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, Jr. and a "health-promoting" dinner featuring Ann Esselstyn recipes at the Stonington Harbor Yacht Club on August 25.
Dr. Esselstyn is best known for his work with heart patients at the Cleveland Clinic following a 30-year career there as a general surgeon. On Wednesday evening, he told the crowd about his interventional study with heart patients that began in 1985. Working with a total of 23 seriously ill heart patients, he reported the remarkable reversal of heart disease in 100% of the patients who complied with the guidelines. Specifically, for seventeen individuals who complied, there had been a total of forty-nine cardiac events in the eight years leading up to the intervention. For the following eleven years after the intervention, there was not a single cardiac event among that entire group.

Working as a team passionate about their topic, Dr. Esselstyn and his wife Ann explained how our nation's #1 killer can easily be reversed by simply shifting to a "heart-healthy" diet consisting of little more than whole plant foods. In order to demonstrate that the diet was healthy, delicious, and easy to prepare, the Esselstyns and the crowd enjoyed a totally vegan lasagna dinner followed by a tasty lime mousse (with tofu) and fresh berries.

The results of Dr. Esselstyn's impressive work and guidelines for the dietary regimen can be found in his book, Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease. A true American hero, he is a Yale graduate, an Olympic gold medallist, and the winner of a bronze star while serving in Vietnam as an Army surgeon. Now, he has taught people around the globe how they can easily rid themselves of heart disease...and a host of other "food-borne" illnesses as he calls them. Dr. Esselstyn is currently the Director of Cardiovascular Disease Prevention and Reversal at the Wellness Institute of the Cleveland Clinic, where he counsels hundreds of patients per year. As with his original study that began in 1985, he reports a near 100% success rate for all compliant patients. For more information, visit his website at or contact Jim Hicks in Stonington at 860-535-2212.

To learn more about this provocative topic, plan to attend a preview of a new movie, FORKS OVER KNIVES, which will be showing in Mystic later this year. The movie is based on the story of two men, Dr. Esselstyn and Dr. T Colin Campbell, author of The China Study. Both grew up on dairy farms and have dedicated the rest of their lives to researching the benefits of plant-based nutrition in the prevention and reversal of disease. Dr. Neal Barnard, founder of The Cancer Project, also appears in the film. Dr. Jackie Campisi has sponsored lectures by all three of these men at The Wellness Concierge Center at 23 Clara Drive in Mystic. The center will be offering a sneak preview of the film in December. Please join the mailing list to be the first to be advised of the date: or call 860-572-4805.
Free photos from the Esselstyn event are available upon request.

Time for a New Year & New Changes

I havn't written in nearly 2 months. I retired from my 7 yr old practice and decided to work 1 day/week. This was the best health decision I made in over a year. The stress of owning a private practice/small business was too great & I realized over the past year and one half that life is too short for these kinds of worries.
From this change came another fantastic opportunity. I changed the site once called Visions into Wellness Concierge, Natural Health & Healing. WIth the support of Greg and my dear freind Jamie Lee, we created a model where holistic practicianers can extend their reach of clients to the Mystic Area. The idea was well recieved and my hope is to keep Wellness Alive, viable, & Visable!!! It took me too long to find the necessary folks I needed in my quest for's now my turn to help others find them effortlessly. Visit our new site this year
DOn't forget that if you have an HSA, you need to spend those pre-tax dollars before 2010. Feel free to contact us at in order to purchase a gift of health for the new year!
Happy Holidays to all and thank you for your support!

Cancer Control Society

Richard Weeder, MD was the kickoff speaker at the 37th Annual Cancer Convention this past weekend. Sadly, this convenion has been meeting for 37 yrs and I've just learned of it- luckily thru the people I've met on my journey, like Dick Weeder and Jessica- I have new resources to share!
Had I not shared some Monavie with a freind, I may have never met Dick and so on....

PLease view this site for amazing info on "What your doctor wont tell you about cancer" and "Cancer, Nutrion & Healing" by Jerry Brunetti, Lymphoma Survivor.

A New Model for Cancer- Dynomite!

In a new study, researchers used a complex computer prediction model to determine that intake of vitamin D3 and calcium would prevent 58,000 new cases of breast cancer and 49,000 new cases of colorectal cancer annually in the U.S. and Canada. The researchers' model also predicted that 75 percent of deaths from these cancers could be prevented with adequate intake of vitamin D3 and calcium.

The Happiest New Year

Yes, it's been one year since my diagnosis and I'm doing great. NO drugs, No chemo. No radiation. No more medical procedures other than a blood test now and then. Cancer FREE.

I owe it all to The China Study by T.Colin Campbell, my doctors Harris Brody and Karl Goldkamp and the changes I've made in my diet this year. If you havn't seen the show THE DOCTORS featured on Jan 7,09 you must go to this link:

We had a very successful Cancer Project party on Dec 12th 08. It made the press here in Mystic and I plan to do this every quarter. Our guest Speaker, Neal Barnard, who was also featured on the ELLEN SHOW will be back again this quarter.

I also had the great pleasure of meeing Dr. Buttar at his last lecture in Orlando on New Years. What a way to welcome in 2009- surrounded with people who know about better health.

And if you havn't read this book yet: Harnessing the Healing Power of Fruit by Roger Rinn, you are missing the point about better health. Dr. Rinn was also at the Orlando event and I'm shown with him here. I told him that I was living proof that his book is true.

The Beautiful Truth Movie

If you havn't been reading this blog, you may not know that I've been passing along free informatoin to those willing to learn about healing. This is the kind of information one pays dearly for. I find the word "alternative" an oxymoron. With FOOD being my medicine, the alternative to this would be more surgery, drugs and radiaiton. Interestingly, these treatments are covered- my food and suppliments are not.
This movie is not yet released but you can view the trailer.
The Beautiful Truth Movie

If you liked that trailer...get Simply Raw and Food Matters. Try Crazy Sexy Cancer for refreshing outlook when being handed an "incurable" diagnosis.

Don't stop The China Study if you think you knew about healthy again. This is a national best seller. You can think of this as the owner's manual to the human body.

We beleive this should be mandatory reading for anyone entering the health field and required reading for grade school students, teachers and cafeteria program directors.

For more informatoin: go to This site offers a free download of the Cancer Survivors Handbook.

Jayne Harvey Visits the USA from the UK

Thank's to Jayne and her book, Crack the Cancer Code, Greg and I were able to meet a person first hand that has healed herself 12 yrs ago with food and a great mindset. Jayne stayed with us this past week and even though she's British and doesn't celebrate Thanksgiving...we have much to be thankful for. Her message saved my life and continues to inspire others.

Diamond Executive Scott Falany of Jacksonville FL aslo paid us a visit during this time. Our home was filled with over 60 guests all interested in the Monavie Opportunity. In these tough times, Greg and I were happy to help create over 100 new job positions in our company.

Jayne spoke about Antioxidants at our "tasting party" and also counselled a few of my patients at the practice about diet and healing cancer.

Friday, December 12th at 4pm, we are hosting a Party For Life to support the Cancer Project. For more information, go to Unfortunately, Jayne had to leave for the UK but she left behind some very healthy minded people who are willing to share what we've learned with all those who attend. Her book will be offered at a discount during the event.

For a few long months this year, my life was "hijacked" by cancer and the fear of unknown. Several months had passed before I had the courage to embark on this quest. What I'm about to give to you, the reader, not only cost me thousands of dollars and a right breast, it set me free.
You see, I needed to find the "answer to cancer" or at the very least, the truth about why this is such an epidemic and "why me".

I knew you couldn't find a solution until you knew what the proplem was. So my journey began. I began to ask questions, read, interview, travel, watch DVD's and get 2nd,k 3rd and 4th opinions. I recommend you do all the same.

In 2 months, I absorbed more data than some people have the opportunity to view in a lifetime. I rapidly learned that at 44 yrs old, most of the information given to me was either incorrect or incomplete. We've all heard the phrase, "the truth shall set you free". It's true. I'm here- alive today to tell you...always seek the truth. Fear is darkness. Knowledge is light. Just as light puts out darkness, knowledge conqueres fear. Syncronicity put people in my life at this juncture who helped me find that knowledge, quell my fear and give me the couragae to look within.

The enlightenment I experienced from this journey amazing. There were many experts telling me what to do. After the reasearch I put in, I chose the expert inside of me- my conscious. How empowering is that! Its quite a realization when you actually trust yourself to listen to yourself. To do this, one requires knowledge. Beleiving in yourself and that knowledge is what sets you can also heal!

Equipment I needed to purchase

Vitamix: The number one item on our list. We never heard of it before unitl Tim Bishop sent me one for my birthday. To this day, it's the singlmost item responsible for quick starting my raw food lifestyle. I probably would not have purchased a $450 item for myself that seemed to be just another kitchen gadget but that was before I knew about Raw Food.

It's a turbo blender that can cook soup and make ice cream all in one. There is a great DVD that comes with the purchase so its "out of the box" easy to use and easy to clean. Best smoothies we've ever had- we take our on trips all the time. I use mine 3 times a day! They are made in USA by a family in Ohio. If you use this code, you will get free shipping: 06-003490.
Get the 5200 model. Ask me for a brochure.

Samson 6 in 1 Juicer: Even though it's not the first on my list, this was the very first peice of equipment I purchased. It juices wheat grass with ease. I recently ordered a portable manual plastic model which you can find on the website.

Saladaco: Helps to spiralize veggies to make "pasta" and fun decorative salads

Mandolin: Benriner makes it easy to slice thin sections. I use this for raw raviolies (turnip)

Dehydrator: Excalibur 5 or 9 tray unit- you'll need this for those coconut Macaroons!

Banana holder: Organic bananas are great to freeze when they are ripe (remove the skins)

Steamer: Organic Rice and veggies on low temp

The BioMat Essential for healing, far infared energy from within an amathyst crystal mat that detoxifies cells and puts the mind into a theta state of healing.

Products and suppliments I take

Drink juice, eat raw, live long! This is organic, wild juice from Brazil and 19 other fruits that help your body function.

Monavie Active is great at decreasing inflammation since it has GLUCOSAMINE.

People I Needed to Meet

There are no coincindences. The people I've met on my journey were meant to come into my life at these exact moments. The only way that I could have found these truths was to collide with the knowlege of these individuals. If you've seen the movie, The Secret, you know what I mean.

The first person I met was Jayne Harvey, England. Jayne had puplished a download of her book, Crack The Cancer Code . In my desperate search for an "alternative" cure, I found Jaynes book, read it and began following it until one day she emailed me. Her message saved me emotionally. I learned that there other people out there who didn't use conventional medicine to health themselves and I could do it too! We began a wonderful friendship online. I plan to host her visit to the USA and assist with putting this work of art on DVD.

While this was going on, my neighbor Angie told be about wheat grass. Her mother, Joanne, had gone thru this many years ago and felt it was an excellent thing to read about. I quickly contacted an online source and spoke to Katherine about ordering a juicer and some harvested grass that she sends FedEx fresh from Fl. This was my introduction to Sampson 6 in 1 juicers and the Wheatgrass book. I learned some eye openning stuff from this book which led me to the next step...alternative medicine.

As I juiced grass, Dr. Chris Deveau learned about my situation and brought over a case of Monavie. This is a high antioxidant puree derived from 19 fruits including the acai berry from Brazil. Chris informed me that it helps to reduce inflammation and protect the immune system. I needed that so I began 3 oz in the am and pm every day. Greg did the same. What followed was amazing...

I called my freinds Lauren and Dana to tell them what was up. They sent me a Life Extension article about CoQ10 and cancer. I learned quickly that I was lacking a few vitamins and minerals even thought I pride myself on taking my daily suppliments. My OBGN told me to have my Vit D levels checked. Dr. David Schwindt, my MD told me about the need for Melatonin and exercise. Everyone involved became part of the "make Jackie well again team". I was surrounded by great energy and fantastic minds.

Chris suggested I see Dr. Karl GoldKamp so I did. We did blood tests and determined what suppliments I needed to boost my immunity and rescue my body from the state it was in. I learned so much about myself. I had a heavy metals urine test, a spectrocell test for coQ10, natural killer cell tests and lots of education on how to eat right. Karl suggested that I take my daily dose of Monavie PULSE (just released Sept 08) since it has ingredients proven to fight cancer cells.

Karl also suggested I pursue colon hydrotherapy. Yup, that's the one thing I said I'd never do. But when you are trying to detox and clean out years of meat and dairy byproducts, you've got to do this. He referred Linda Zitka, RN, ACH, CHT who made another amazing difference in my life. She offers many therapies including the "Susan Somers" Ondamed laser treatment.

Meanwhile, my neighbor Angie, introduced me to her mom. Joanne had suggested I take a trip to PA to meet her doctor from 13 yrs ago. She was so vibrant and glad to help so I said I'd go. Sadly, this didn't happen until after my surgery but I eventually got around to it. It seemed kind of far, I was pressured by getting this surgery over with and I was getting pretty down on "alternatives" after looking into a few other options. I had a right mastectomy in May of 2008.

By Mid June, I called for an appointment with Joanne's doctor. Rene Scally answered the phone. That was pretty wild since I was childhood freinds with Patty Scally (Rene's sister in law). My parents had just return from a trip to PA in which they told me they "ran into" Rene. Somthing in the stars were lined up here- I know I had to make this appointment with Dr. Harris Brody H.M.D., N.M.D, CN. Little did I know that this was Rene's father. He would be the one who would change my life forever. He told me about Raw Food and how my body was infected by a yeast called Candida. Dr Brody discussed the healing power of RAW CHOCOLATE and turned me onto David Wolfe, worlds authority on Superfoods- (He's also into planting trees and promoting chocolate for health- my kind of guy!). My friend Connie accompanied me to this visit since I was 1 month postop. We were both amazed how food could heal the body of this condition and much more!

I returned with the feeling that this would just not fly with Greg. Afterall, we were big carnivores. We even were signed up to get "meat in the mail" by Allen Bros and Omeha Steaks! At first we were both a bit reluctant. Weviewd the DVD Healing Cancer together after my return from PA. We were each motivated to not live another day in poor health. We learned about the "mis"information handed to Americans by the food and drug companies, big corporations, government and media. We read the book, The China Study-Human beings were not meant to eat animal products.
We learned it, we accepted it and we started doing it. In June of this year, we began eating raw!

Cold Turkey- that's what it was. No coffee, no sugar, no meat, no dairy, no wheat, nothing processed. No animal protein- not even fish!

I called Linda Norris, RN to do a Barbara Brennan healing with me to lift my spirits after my mastectomy. Linda knew about raw food and turned me onto She was surprised to find me in excellent health and pretty upbeat considering what I had just been thru. I don't know what actually happened that day but this is when my mission began. I had a real spiritual breakthrough. I thought the Secret was a great movie- well I was living it. Other healers like David Farkas and Maggie Landman (from Australia) and my friend Indigo Nat came to visit me. Everywhere I turned, I ran into someone else who knew just what to do and say. The "make jackie well again team" was growing- I couldn't help but feel better with all this great energy swirling around me. I was attracting people into my life that I never knew I could.

I had heard about the BioMat through a friend. I scheduled a session without knowing that the BioMat Clinic was next door to my surgeon's office! (talk about synchronicity) After feeling the soothing effects of the BioMat, I was ready to have one shipped to my home ASAP. The BioMat's light technology speeds up cell renewal, providing detoxification and deep relaxation to assist the body in balancing itself. You lay on this amethyst crystal mat feeling the warmth from the Far Infrared rays penetrating several inches into your body. Negative ions being the third component allow for (optimal cell functioning & health, especially the removal of cellular wastes)....
When I went for my 2 week check-up following the surgery, my surgeon was amazed at how quickly my incision had healed AND there was no bruising of the skin typical for manipulation of the area. I sleep on my BioMat as much as I can. Greg had an amazing reaction to it..we both felt the clarity of mind, detox effects, weight loss and basic higher energy level. Our attitudes began to change for the positive- no more stress! For additional information, contact Independent International BioMat Distributor Jocelyne Colombe at 860.830.1115 or
Turns out, Jocelyn is Egyptian and is a spiritual healer too. I was just following a lead to get a gizmo for my health and I found another individual who would be instrumental in helping me in my mission. Did you ever notice the synchronicities in life? They become stronger as you get closer to following your mission. If you are not in tune with your mission, you miss these opportunities. Being "in tune" is what was turning Greg and I on. We lived for the next big "coincidence". Boy did they keep comming....

Greg was the very first person I attracted into my life 6 yrs ago. Without him, none of this would have been possible. He stood by me thru 4 different biopsies, many opinions and appointments, tears, fears and lots of self doubt and ultimately a right mastectomy. He always supported that my gut feelings were correct- no matter how many conflicing opinons we were given. I trusted him to help me make these decisions because he is one of the greatest decison makers of all time. We agreed that I needed the surgery inorder to label myself "cured". We both knew that removing a breast or nuking my system wasn't going to "cure" me of cancer. The tumors were just "warning" signs of the condition my body was in (just like an idiot light on the dashboard). I was being told by a force from within that "It's time to clean up my act". We both knew it had to come from a change in diet, a change in thinking and a change in how we lived. This was a paradigm shift for our entire family and the best thing we ever did. Change is good- beleive me.

Greg was the last person on earth I thought would embrace a raw food diet. He did it because he not only loved me and wanted to support my health; he learned the truth by watching Healing Cancer and that's what set us both free. Not only did we each loose 15 lbs but emotional baggage and negativity slipped away. How nice to feel alive from eating LIVE FOOD. (I knew radiation and drug therapy wouldn't have done that for me!) Happy feelings emerged, more energy, no more aches and pains, dry skin, acne or allergies. We were convinced we'd live forever feeling this good. We had the "glow".
Knowing we were on the right path, we began to tell others about what we've experienced.

Now EVERYONE was noticing us. "What where they doing?" Didn't she just have surgery? How can they be this happy after just being diagnosed with cancer? What is going on? Are they really eating RAW FOOD?
This is where the story gets really good. ..there is just too much to tell in a blog.

This video was fimed over 1 year ago (5 months before my diagnosis). The show featured on the top right of this blog was filled DURING my biopsies and pre-surgical consults. Even though the fear was there, I was determined to be the person I was pre-cancer. Thanks to the events that brought all these terrific people to my side, I emerged even brighter than ever!
