Your Cancer Cure Mindset

If you think you can, or you think you can’t, either way, you’re right. ~ Henry Ford

Nobody likes pessimistic, cynical of negative people.  Why?  Because that negative energy is actually harmful to more than the mood in the room.

In fact, if you are diagnosed with cancer, negativity can kill! No matter what cancer cure therapy you choose, your mindset is a critical factor in your recovery and continuing health.

Henry Ford said, “If you think you can, or you think you can’t, you’re right.”

Well, Robert Geiger says, “If you think your cancer can be cured, or you don’t think it can be cured, you’re right.”

Sad Woman

When I first got my diagnosis, fortunately for me, I was still pressing the “pain button” frequently enough to numb both the pain of surgery and the psychological pain of “stage 4 cancer.”  As if that wasn’t enough, looking at myself in the mirror was a horror show.  I looked like I walked into a Samurai sword.  Everything I learned about my diagnosis was BAD.

I remember breaking down into tears at least once an hour.  I didn’t even know why half the time.  I recall talking to my sister about feeling completely lost in the woods.  What’s my purpose?  Was there a point to my life, now that things looked so bleak?

Clearly, my first task was to work through my psychological pain.  I needed a major mindset adjustment if I was going to make it.

It helped to find out that I was not alone. Many people have the same problem with a positive mindset after getting such bad news.  That point was driven home for me when I listened to Dr. Lissa Rankin’s TEDx talk, Is there scientific proof we can heal ourselves? Listen to it below and you’ll see what I mean.

Dr. Lissa Rankin: Is there scientific proof we can heal ourselves?

I’ll summarize one of her stories for you.  Dr. Rankin tells about a man who read about a treatment that was said to have great promise for his cancer. He got his doctor to give him this treatment and his cancer cleared up.  Shortly after that, the man read that the story of the treatment’s efficacy were greatly over stated.  His confidence in his cancer sure was crushed.  His cancer came back shortly thereafter.

Here’s the interesting part.  His doctor thought that his recovery should not have happened the first time!  So the doctor decided to do a little experiment. He told the man that there was a brand new  better version of the drug and would like to start the therapy immediately. The man immediately brightened up, all excited about his new cancer cure.  The doctor proceeded to give him a course of saline solution (water). The result?  His cancer completely went away.

Sadly, the man caught a news report that declared the new drug a complete bust.  Shortly after that, the man died.

His confidence and positive mental attitude created not just the possibility for a cancer cure, but the cure itself!

There are numerous cases like this that the medical profession calls, “spontaneous remission.”  That means there is no medical reason they should be alive.  But they are.

Positive MindsetThe Solution is Mindset

The solution is obvious. It was their Mindset!

You may think that’s just Pollyanna.  You may think I’m suggesting you paste a smile over a sad face even if you don’t feel like it. Nothing could be farther from the truth.

The fact is, you have to process your emotions, no matter what they might be. There’s nothing wrong with feeling bad, being angry, feeling cheated by life or just being afraid.  It’s perfectly natural. But emotions are not the truth. Fearing something does not make it the truth.

A cancer curing mindset is one that holds onto the possibility that cancer can be cured and you can cure your cancer. The good news is that you can know and be confident knowing that cancer can be cured.  You can know that YOU can cure your own cancer. You can choose to trust.  There’s plenty of people who are more than just surviving cancer. They are thriving in their lives.

Finally, there’s no downside to adjusting your mindset and believing in the possibility of life. 

Movie Review: Forks Over Knives – The Basis for a Cancer Fighting Diet

forks-over-knives-movieposterForks over Knives, by Dr. T. Colin Campbell and Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, is one of the most important movies on health and lifestyle and you need to watch it!  This is NOT a movie about dieting or being a vegan.  It’s about what we need to eat to be healthy.

The stories of  patients on death’s door, sent home to prepare for death, who were completely healed by these Doctors is simply mind boggling. When you see it, you can not help but be moved and motivated to take your health more seriously and reconsider what you eat.

If you have Netflix, you can watch the entire movie there, along with the extended interview version.

This is the description from the Youtube post

What has happened to us? Despite the most advanced medical technology in the world, we are sicker than ever by nearly every measure.

Two out of every three of us are overweight. Cases of diabetes are exploding, especially amongst our younger population. About half of us are taking at least one prescription drug. Major medical operations have become routine, helping to drive health care costs to astronomical levels. Heart disease, cancer and stroke are the country’s three leading causes of death, even though billions are spent each year to “battle” these very conditions. Millions suffer from a host of other degenerative diseases.

Could it be there’s a single solution to all of these problems? A solution so comprehensive but so utterly straightforward, that it’s mind-boggling that more of us haven’t taken it seriously?

FORKS OVER KNIVES examines the profound claim that most, if not all, of the so-called “diseases of affluence” that afflict us can be controlled, or even reversed, by rejecting our present menu of animal-based and processed foods. The major storyline in the film traces the personal journeys of a pair of pioneering yet under-appreciated researchers, Dr. T. Colin Campbell and Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn.
