Cancer’s Trojan Horse

“There is not a tumor on God’s green Earth that cannot be licked with a little baking soda and maple syrup.” —Jim Kelmun

Kenneth Brown, CEO
September-October 2018 • Vol 3, No 100

LLong about February of 2018, I had a large lump in my chest so I went over to the VA hospital in Helena for a biopsy. The surgeon said he would let me know. I then did the maple syrup and baking soda routine described here. After about two weeks, he called and said he wanted to do another biopsy. I told him there’s no need because the lump is gone now. After two more of my friends died of cancer,
I made copies of this newsletter and started asking around, “Do you know anyone who’s got cancer?” The answer was almost always yes, so I’ve been handing out this information since then.

I mentioned it to a fellow named Jay who had stage-4 colon cancer. He went out and got the 100%-pure maple syrup and the aluminum-free baking soda. After about three weeks on it, he went back to the doctor who said, “I don’t know what you’re doing, but keep doing it, because your numbers are way down.” A friend named Terry also had colon cancer. After a while, I was meeting a mutual friend for coffee, who told me, “Terry wants you to know he’s doing fine and says, ‘Thank you, thank you!’”

What’s Your Face Telling You?

A Picture Paints 1,000 Words

Marlenea La Shomb, ND
September-October 2018 • Vol 3, No 100

In life I have found keeping it simple and finding what works best for you are most beneficial when working to move forward through challenging situations, whether mental, emotional, or physical, since they are all tied together with one affecting the other.

Over the years, I have met some people with a very strong sense of smell and taste, disliking pure essential oils. For that very reason, they can also have a dislike for stronger tasting foods, like raw garlic, onions, lemon, ginger, cayenne or turmeric, herbs and herbal remedies (tinctures), teas and have never gotten used to the benefits due to the taste. Adding to that, some cannot swallow tablets or capsules, making me wonder, what can I recommend to these people that they will actually take?

Herbs: The Root of Medicine

They Work Much Better in Their Whole State!

Crystal Maceira, Master Herbalist
July–August 2018 • Vol 3, No 99

I have been a Master Herbalist for over 35 years and have seen much good in herbs. I personally have benefited from their use, which has kept me from getting sick, by using the Formula KVA, for instance, because its main herb is Garlic. (I even hugged friends of mine who had the West Nile Virus!) I have healed sprains, cuts, big open wounds (on my previous husband) and so much more.

I have seen people healed of many diseases using herbs, along with dietary changes.
I personally make many herbal formulas and single herb tinctures, several of which I use. The favorite ones I am taking now are Turmeric and Boswellia for arthritis. They both help inflammation in my joints. I also use a couple of salves (Hot Tamale and Comfrey) on the clients I massage and personally on an old injury.

Herbal Detoxification

The Body’s Power to Heal Itself

Elaine Rylin
July–August 2018 • Vol 3, No 99

Excerpts from The Essiac Report: Canada’s Remarkable Unknown Cancer Remedy:
“Chemotherapy and radiation are, for the most part, indiscriminate killers. Skeptics conclude that, in most cases, these “therapies” are no better and sometimes much worse than the actual disease.

An alternative is the Native-American formula for Essiac Tea that consists of 4 or 5 herbs (see illustrations below). It’s a simple, inexpensive, highly effective and natural approach that has no side effects and is available to everyone. For over a century, detoxification programs using this tea have restored health to thousands of cancer victims.

EFT—Relief Is Just a Few Taps Away!

Emotional Freedom Techniques

July–August 2018 • Vol 3, No 99

Can tapping on acupuncture points really change a person’s life? Twenty years ago, when few Americans had heard of energy psychology and its methods for redirecting the body’s energy, those claims raised skeptical eyebrows.

Then EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) burst on the scene and in record time, people around the world reported amazing results in their efforts to lose weight, stop smoking, improve in any sport, get along better with others, alleviate stress, improve vision, eliminate pain, reduce allergic reactions, overcome anxiety, recover from illness, have more energy, make more money, and even relax and enjoy public speaking, America’s number-one phobia.

Understanding Bowenwork

Extremely Gentle, It Addresses the Whole Body

Crystal Maceira, LMT, MH
May-June 2018 • Vol 3, No 98

The Bowen Technique is a gentle form of natural healing. In order to appreciate its subtlety and depth, the therapy really needs to be experienced. It’s a system of moves along muscle and connective tissue that enhances the body’s innate ability to heal, creating balance and resetting the nervous system out of “stress mode.” After the first session, people often wonder how such gentle moves can have so powerful an effect—not only on their posture and structural problems, e.g., bad back, frozen shoulder, etc., but also on their general well-being.

The gentle touch used in a Bowen session will vary according to the client’s sensitivity. The therapist uses her fingers or thumbs to move over muscles, ligaments, tendons, fascia and joints, and occasionally over nerves, in order to elicit a healing response in the body.

The Healing Crisis

They Say It’s Darkest Before the Dawn

Mary Loveless, LMT, PTA, C.Ped.
March–April 2018 • Vol 3, No 97

“Why are my symptoms feeling worse?” What you are experiencing is the healing crisis — sometimes you feel worse before you feel better. Why does this happen? This occurs as you begin to release into the deeper layers of restrictions. Not only can the symptoms intensify, but also other sensations or emotions may come to the surface.

Usually this process lasts around 48 hours, but can go on longer. This is your body’s way of bringing your awareness into what you are actually dealing with everyday, but you “tune out” and don’t feel. At times, it can feel like you are taking two steps forward and one step backwards…

What Is Iridology?

Can It Help Me Gain Control of My Health?

Crystal Maceira, LMT, MH
November-December 2017 • Vol 3, No 95

I have two favorite definitions of Iridology. The first is from Dorland’s Medical Dictionary: Iridology is a diagnostic technique based on the premise that early pathologic changes elsewhere in the body are reflected in the iris before disease becomes clinically apparent. An analysis of a person’s state of health may be made by visual examination of the iris, with the color, density, and position of deposited pigment helping to identify the pathologic process and the organ involved.

The second is from Dr. Ellen Tart Jensen, the person from whom I received my training: Iridology is the study of the color, pigmentations and structure of the iris or colored portion of the eye as they relate genetically through reflex response to the strengths and deficiencies of the body’s systems.

Chakra & Crystal Work

Creating Inner Peace & Balance

Sara Gibbs, NCMT
November-December 2017 • Vol 3, No 95

What is a Chakra anyway? Defined in Sanskrit, Chakra means disc or wheel, and refers to the energy centers in our bodies. Chakras are universal, although some cultures refer to them more than others. Everybody has Chakras, the same as we all have a physical anatomy that includes organs and blood. There are seven primary chakras as mentioned in this article, which are located from the top of the head, down the spine, to the base of the sacrum.

The chakras are an essential part of our energy anatomy that connects the energetic body—including our mental, emotional, memory, and spiritual bodies—to the physical body. When we are working toward our mental and emotional well-being, we always include the balancing of the Chakra system.

Clearing Out Summer’s Heat

for Winter’s Health

Kristine Backes, MA
September–October 2017 • Vol 3, No 94

Ancient healing traditions such as Ayurveda see the transitions between the seasons as an opportunity to pause, take a break, and clear out imbalances accumulated in the previous few months. Much as we love our summers here in Montana, the long days, high temperatures and intense activity can result in excess heat lodging in our bodies.

In Ayurvedic teaching, any substance we take into our bodies that is not completely digested and either assimilated or eliminated can become a toxin, called “ama.” Ama tends to collect first in the digestive system, then spill over into the parts of the body in which we are uniquely vulnerable.
