Advice for Others
I would say that no diagnoses is an emergency to stop reassess and think about what’s best for your life and get as many opinions as possible and do your research don’t just jump into fear-based medicine.

My Story

I never thought that it was me who was going get cancer! On February 14, 2022, I was diagnosed with a rare blood bone/marrow cancer called Multiple Myeloma and within 8 months, I went through an toxic induction period of chemotherapy, a stem cell transplant, and then went into remission. During that period of time, I used all of my resources, knowledge and education to support myself with non-conventional, non-toxic integrative therapies/medicine and nourishment, so that I could support my body and truly heal once and for all.

The Cancering Process in my body WAS NOT a result of poor dietary habits, genetics, or lifestyle, it was emotional conflict. As a Wellness Warrior, I believe that my CELLS were listening to the HAVOC I was causing to myself- physically & emotionally and for my radical healing to happen, it involved getting very intimate with the pressure I was putting on myself to be PERFECT in every way, professionally, physically & personally. I had some soul searching to do! I had to figure out what was broken! Yes, I did the conventional treatment to put out the fire, but I was also doing a lot of Integrative Oncology and Integrative Nutrition/Supplementation & Exercise to support and mitigate any side effects, symptoms, and for prevention of reoccurrence. This went completely against conventional treatment - but guess what?

I have NO more cancer.

During this time I studied and now I am officially qualified to provide Anti-Cancer Integrative Health (MM) Multiple Myeloma information, research data, strategies to overcome conventional medical roadblocks, gain new life skills, provide non-conventional & conventional therapies, supplementation suggestions, fitness routines, proper nutrition for dis-ease control and support to those affected by MM blood cancer. My Strength: My tenacity, grit, and resiliency are my psychological assets.
