How to create anything you want in life – Kate’s Top Ten Lessons

Have you ever felt like sometimes in life you just can’t go on anymore, you’ve got nothing left to give?. I know I have at times.
Have you ever experiences that feeling of being able to create anything you want in life? I know that feeling too.
The highs and lows of life is what I call this sometimes too.

However, thankfully to the power of some incredible personal development teachers I learnt so much about myself over a period of time and I continue to do so on a daily basis when things and situations show up for me to experience.

Along the way, I crossed paths, online, with Kate Marie O’Brien and I have to say her work is incredible. She’s been through soooo much and she openly and willingly shares her stories AND she is so talented too as she creates the most empowering, touching, raw, authentic and powerful messages via videos. I love her videos and love to share the messages she puts out there with others.

So here’s another one from Kate Marie O’Brien – enjoy and leave a comment of how you enjoyed and subscribe to her You Tube channel to see all the other videos and the up and coming ones too.

HOW to be unstoppable and shift through ANYTHING that can come up in your life.
This is the MANUAL of ‘HOW TO’ that we should’ve been born with…

I learnt these TOP TEN lessons, through trial and error. Going from anorexia, drug addiction, bulimia and depression, where I almost lost everything. To slowly building my life back up. Relearning how to be in the world, Regathering my strength… through to now, where I have a team of 10 full time employees, live where I want to in the world, and have the life I envisioned. PLEASE dont hear ‘perfect life’.. we all have our human experiences, ME INCLUDED! but in all honesty, its pretty damn far from what I had experienced. It feels like what happened to me, happened to someone else…

Recently someone reached out (again), and asked “do you have a video where you condense how you did it, and what you’ve learnt…”

I know they’re referring to how I turned my life around.
And I know that sounds a little wanky, and even boring
As soon many people talk about ‘I did this, and you can too’

So let’s just be clear
THIS, is NOT that.

What it IS, is THIS…

Ive taken my learnings from the last 15 years with everything Ive gone through
Put them in a pot
Boiled off all the water
And gotten it down to 10 remaining nuggets sitting in the bottom of the pot

… these are the TEN biggest things that I learnt through trial and error
And Ill be zero’ing in on the HOW

HOW I moved through my rock bottoms
HOW I managed to build up a team of 10 full time employees
HOW I’ve been able to be able to continue in the face of anything that’s arisen from me
HOW I’ve been able to not be stopped

… AND these ‘hows’ are universal.
Meaning, they’ll cross credit into YOUR life
Regardless of what you’re currently experiencing

The Ancient Tibetan Practice for Health and Vitality (via UPLIFT)

The Ancient Tibetan practice for Health and Vitality

By Azriel ReShel on Sunday March 27th, 2016

How Ten minutes a Day can change your Life

Some years ago I attended a yoga class where my flamboyant artist friend and yoga teacher shared an interesting sequence called The Five Tibetans. I immediately fell in love with this simple, short and totally useable sequence and it became a great resource that I turn to and use for a quick yoga pick me up. For some time it was a daily sequence, but it’s always been one I return to, and a sequence that I teach my students as a self empowering, simple yoga ritual they can do on their own at home.

So what are the Five Tibetans?

The Five Tibetans or the Five Rites of Rejuvenation, is a system of five, believed to be Tibetan, Yogic exercises said to be over 2500 years old. You flow through the five exercises almost in a meditative dance. Each exercise stimulates a particular chakra or hormonal system and revitalises certain organs, so that the five rites together form a complete workout for the body as a whole.

This series of movements also known as “The fountain of youth” are credited with the ability to heal the body, balance the chakras and reverse the ageing process in just ten minutes a day.

The movements are also known as
The movements are also known as “The Fountain of Youth”

According to legend, a British explorer learned the rites in a Himalayan Monastery from Tibetan monks who had excellent health despite their advanced age. Some skeptics cast doubt upon the origins of the practice, but no matter the exact source, there is no uncertainty about the great health benefits of the practice. Peter Kelder first publicised the Tibetan Rites in 1939 in a publication, The Eye of Revelation. The sequence was later popularised through a book, The Five Tibetans, written by yoga teacher Chris Kilham, who says we will never know their true origins:

“Perhaps they come from Nepal or Northern India…As the story has it, they were shared by Tibetan lamas; beyond that I know nothing of their history. Personally, I think these exercises are most likely Tibetan in origin. The issue at hand, though, is not the lineage of the Five Tibetans. The point is [their] immense potential value for those who will clear 10 minutes a day to practice.” – Chris Kilham

Yoga teachers are in agreement, the sequence is a simple yet incredibly, even deceptively powerful one that creates a dynamic energetic effect in the body increasing the flow of prana or chi up the spine and through the chakras, energising every cell in your body.

Turning back the clock

According to the Tibetan lamas, the only difference between youth and old age is the spin rate of the chakras (the body’s seven major energy centres).This specific routine is said by lamas to stimulate all seven chakras to spin rapidly at the same rate. They believe that if any one of the chakras is blocked and its natural spin rate slowed, then vital life energy will be unable to circulate and so ageing and illness will set in. The Five Tibetans are called the rites of rejuvenation because the lamas say the ageing process is stopped by the unblocking and activation of the spinning of the chakras due to this sequence. Recent medical research has uncovered convincing evidence that the ageing process is hormone-regulated.The sequence also normalises hormonal imbalances in the body which also hold the key to lasting youth, vitality and wellbeing.

As simple as the Five Tibetans may seem, they have a profound effect on the energy and chakra system of the body, stimulating the electrical energy of the chakras in the same way as switching on a light switch sets off a flow of electrical energy.

“The Five Tibetans is simple, practical, effective and certainly mind/body altering. If you would love to become rejuvenated, remain calm, feel more vitality, be more flexible and simply look your absolute best, then now there is a new way to experience a greater state of wellbeing that takes just minutes a day, but lasts a lifetime.” … Dr. John F. Demartini

How to practice the Five Tibetans

The Five Tibetans have similarities to some traditional yoga practices: Tibetan 1 is basically Sufi whirling. Tibetan 3 is essentially the camel pose. Tibetan 4 is like an upward table, and Tibetan 5 is a smooth flow of up dog and down dog

First Tibetan

Stand erect with arms strong, outstretched and horizontal with the shoulders. Now spin around in a clockwise direction until you become slightly dizzy. You can employ a ballet-like technique of keeping your eyes on one spot and then returning to that spot when you turn your head in a full revolution.There is only one caution: you must turn from left to right.

Breathing: Inhale and exhale deeply as you do the spins.

First Tibetan
First Tibetan

Second Tibetan

Lie down full length on the floor or bed. Place the hands flat down alongside of the hips. Fingers should be kept close together with the finger-tips of each hand turned slightly toward one another. Raise the feet until the legs are straight up. If possible, let the feet extend back a bit over the body toward the head, but do not let the knees bend. Hold this position for a moment or two and then slowly lower the feet to the floor, and for the next several moments allow all of the muscles in the entire body to relax completely. Then perform the Rite all over again. For greater core strength activation you can lower the legs without touching the floor and then using your belly and your in breath, raise the legs up, in a continuous cycle. Be sure to breath out as you lower the legs. An easier version is to have your hands underneath the buttocks and a more challenging version is to have the arms stretched above the head as you raise your legs.

Breathing: Breathe in deeply as you lift your head and legs and exhale as you lower your head and legs.

Second Tibetan

Third Tibetan

Kneel on the floor with the body erect. The hands should be placed on the backs of your thigh muscles. Incline the head and neck forward, tucking your chin in against your chest. Then fold the the head and neck backward, arching the spine. Your toes should be curled under through this exercise. As you arch, you will brace your arms and hands against the thighs for support. After the arching return your body to an erect position and begin the rite all over again.

Breathing: Inhale as you arch the spine and exhale as you return to an erect position.

Third Tibetan
Third Tibetan

Fourth Tibetan

Sit erect on the floor with your feet stretched out in front of you. The legs must be perfectly straight, with the backs of the knees well down or close to the floor. Place the hands flat on the rug, fingers together, and the hands pointing outward slightly. Chin should be on chest and the head forward. Now gently raise the body on an in breath, using your core strength of your belly to lift the pelvis, and at the same time bend the knees so that the legs from the knees down are practically straight up and down like an upward table. The arms, too, will also be vertical while the body from shoulders to knees will be horizontal. As the body is raised upward allow the head gently to fall backward so that the head hangs backward as far as possible when the body is fully horizontal. Hold this position for a few moments, return to first position on the out breath, and relax for a few moments before performing the Rite again. When the body is pressed up to complete horizontal position, you can tense every muscle in the body.

Breathing: Breathe in as you raise up, hold your breath as you tense the muscles, and breathe out fully as you come down.

Fourth Tibetan

Fifth Tibetan

Place the hands on the floor about two feet apart. Then, with the legs stretched out to the rear with the feet also about two feet apart in a downward dog, push the body, and especially the hips, up as far as possible, rising on the toes and hands. At the same time the head should be brought so far down that the chin comes up against the chest. Next, allow the body to come slowly down to a ‘sagging’ position in an upward dog, with only the toes on the floor. Bring the head up, causing it to be drawn as far back as possible. The muscles should be tensed for a moment when the body is at the highest point, and again at the lowest point.”Be sure not to strain the lower back, by bringing strong flowing movement to the upper shoulders. Those with lower back injuries can bend the legs as they go into upward dog.

Breathing: Breathe in deeply as you raise the body, and exhale fully as you lower the body.

Gain a more focused and purposeful mind

As with all yoga practice, it is important to synchronise your breath with the movement. It’s best to do the exercises in the morning because they get your energy going. But it’s highly likely you will fall in love with the sequence and want to repeat it during the day. To begin with it is best to complete five to seven repetitions of each rite every day and to work up to 21 repetitions of each of the exercises. Usually this takes about 10 – 12 weeks. A lot of people are keen to reach 21 repetitions quickly, but it is best to gradually increase the repetitions. The recommended slow build up process allows your body to develop a strong foundation upon which to improve your flexibility. And it also is important due to the effects of the Rites themselves.  They can initiate many changes in your bodies energy and balance systems. Although this varies from person to person, it is generally best to allow your body time to adjust.

It’s important to ay attention to what your body is telling you and not to strain or force any position that causes pain. There is also a simple and adapted version of the Five Tibetans for those who have injuries or cannot perform the sequence.

When you make this sequence part of your daily practice, you can experience an overall improvement in your health and wellbeing and perhaps the most important benefit, is a dramatic increase in your levels of energy. Other great benefits are a greater resilience to stress and the ability to stay centred. As with all yoga practice greater flexibility in body and mind are usual. Most people report a more focused and purposeful mind and greater awareness, which then creates a happier and more fulfilling life. This sequence really improves the quality of your life.

Experience an overall improvement in your health and wellbeing

A complete and balanced practice

One of the great things about the Five Tibetans, is it is a quick and simple practice that can be done by anyone, regardless of age or fitness levels. It is an incredibly simple ten minute routine that can easily be slotted into your daily life, yet will have major spin offs in all areas. Its free, and its yours. A self empowering practice you can do on your own anywhere and at any time! The Five Tibetans strengthens and stretches all the main muscles in the body. Just as Sun Salutations make up a complete sequence, the Five Rites are a complete and balanced practice.


In just ten minutes a day you can:

  • Reduce stress
  • Feel younger and more powerful
  • Slow down the aging process
  • Improve strength and flexibility
  • Enhance vitality
  • Calm the mind
  • Create greater mental clarity and focus

What is Sanakey?

NS Health has introduced the hand-held Sanakey pain-relief device for self-treatment to the Australian public. The Sanakey even has an App for smartphone or tablet and provides the user with detailed information how to use the Sanakey personal pain-relief device and clear treatment directions for common painful complaints.

The impact of pain on health and how the sanakey can help you and your family!

A study in 2012 put the cost in Australia at $A55 billion. The clear majority of these cases were represented by muscular skeletal pain. So the impact of chronic pain at a national level is easy to recognise and put a figure on. With an aging population and the growing increase in metabolic diseases, including diabetes adding to reported pain levels in society, we can only expect a dramatic increase in these costs.

Currently society relies heavily on pharmaceuticals to deal with this issue but from clinical experience we know that this approach doesn’t work in all cases.

On an individual level the impact of Pain on Health isn’t easy to quantify.

Pain is shown to affect sleep, mood and appetite and put an enormous strain on personal relationships. The chronic stress induced at a metabolic level causes a release of both inflammatory and stress chemicals into the body that are linked to wide ranging potential life-threatening conditions from obesity to cancer. Research now shows that the brain responds to chronic pain by forming new networks to reinforce that pain this teaches other parts of the brain to experience more pain.

Often when we see patients at our clinic they are caught in a vicious cycle of pain. They no longer sleep well, there is inevitable weight gain linked to reduced mobility and in some cases patients will report a low mood as well as the pain.

This all makes a clear case as to the devastating impact of pain on our general health as well as society as a whole.

So how can we address pain at an individual level in order to see the positive onflow effect in society?

Most of chronic pain patients we see our Clinic have attempted to address these issues in a number of ways; medication, rest and other therapies. Unfortunately, by the time we see them the issues have been a part of their life for many years.

The use of the sanakey personal pain relief device either as a stand-alone therapy or in combination with pharmaceutical and/or other manual therapies can be the start of breaking these pain cycles.

By treating the pain at an electrical level as well as a physical and chemical level means we see a more sustained effect in the underlying condition that has led to this point.

It’s no surprise to us when someone begins using sanakey, having suffered pain from an injury sustained some 20 years ago reports having “best sleep I’ve had in years” after using the device a few times.

Of course we don’t claim that the sanakey improves sleep, or that it leads to weight-loss but once you remove the chemical and electrical reinforcement of pain within the body it will naturally move away from these states of dis-ease!

So how can the sanakey help you and your family?

Once you begin using your sanakey you’ll find it an indispensable tool for all types of pain:

  • In little ones the sanakey comes in handy anywhere you see pain from colic in little bubs, to the unavoidable bumps, insect bites and bruises as they grow, progressing to sports injuries.
  • For Mum and Dads, the sanakey can address the general aches and pains of growing older: neck and back pain, arthritis from old injuries as well as nerve pain.

When you add up the cost of medications for common ailments over the years and compare to the years of 100% drug-free treatment we would expect you to get from the sanakey – it’s really a great investment for any family.

Ambassador Testimonial, Layne Beachley

“As a professional athlete, I placed an enormous amount of pressure and expectation on my body, mind and overall health for over 20 years.
In 2005 I pushed my body to the limit, suffering a severe disk herniation in the C5/6 region of my neck and as a result I was given two alternatives; surgery or retirement.
After trying almost every alternative medicine and complementary therapy, I elected to give NS Health Australia a go.
With consistent treatment and maintenance, I was able to avoid surgery and retirement and return to competitive surfing without pain and go on to win my 7th ASP Women’s World Championship.
Now that I’m happily retired from competition, NS Health continues to assist me in a multitude of ways.
No matter what the challenge, I encourage everyone to put NS Health Australia to the test!” – Layne Beachley

What is PlaqueAway®?

PlaqueAway® is a powder that is added to your pet’s food to improve oral health by reducing plaque and tartar on your pet’s teeth.

What are plaque and tartar?

Plaque is a film of bacteria that forms on teeth of humans and animals. The formation of plaque is a normal process. Plaque continues to form on teeth every day. Plaque gradually becomes hardened by minerals in saliva to form tartar (also called calculus). Tartar is often stained brown or pale yellow. The accumulation of plaque and tartar results in poor oral health because it is commonly associated with gum disease (gingivitis and periodontitis) and tooth loss in animals.

Gingivitis is when gums become irritated and inflamed. Periodontitis is more severe and is when there is a loss of the connective tissue fibres that attach the teeth to the gums, and of the bone surrounding the teeth. The gums pull away from the teeth and form ‘pockets’ that become infected.

What is PlaqueAway made of?

PlaqueAway® powder is made from Ascophyllum nodosum which is a seaweed that grows in the North Atlantic Ocean. The Ascophyllum nodosum powder in PlaqueAway® is sourced from the pristine waters of northern Norway.

How does PlaqueAway work?

There are many compounds present in seaweed and the exact compound or compounds that reduce the plaque on teeth have not been clearly identified. However, they appear to be absorbed via the intestines into the blood and then move into saliva where they act on plaque and tartar in the mouth. As well as reducing the formation of plaque and tartar, PlaqueAway causes the tartar to stick less well to the teeth and to be softer.

To order any of the TotalPet range please go to our online shop here

How do I know that PlaqueAway will work?

A clinical trial has been conducted in dogs and cats which shows that Acophyllum nodosum reduces plaque and calculus. For the scientifically minded, the relevant publication is: Gawor, J., Jodkowska, K. and Jank, M. (2013) Effects of an ascophyllum nodosum formulation on oral health index in dogs and cats. Weterynaria w Praktyce (Veterinary Medicine in Practice) Magazine Issue 10 p74. Poland.

What are the benefits of PlaqueAway?

Poor oral health is a major cause of bad breath. If your pet has stinky breath, it is likely that an improvement in oral health through the use of PlaqueAway® will help.

Since a build-up of tartar can lead to gum disease (gingivitis and periodontitis) and tooth loss in animals, your vet will need to mechanically remove it from your pet’s teeth from time to time. Your pet may need to be sedated or anaesthetised for this to be done. Using PlaqueAway® will reduce the amount of work that your vet needs to do to remove the tartar and reduce how often this needs to be done. In periodontitis, any infection in gums can spread to other organs in the body and cause serious disease.

How long before the benefits of PlaqueAway are observed?

The benefits of PlaqueAway® should be evident after 6-8 weeks of use.

If your pet starts losing its teeth, it is really too late to act. Start now to prevent this from happening to your pet.

Tolman Self Care: 6 Pure Essential Oils to Support Gut Health (via

When it comes to your wellbeing and longevity, ‘gut health’ is EVERYTHING!

This was a brilliant ancient wisdom that is thankfully coming back to today’s health-conscious world.

So besides a clean, plant-based diet that includes fermented foods, what else can you do to support a healthy gut?

Well, in this article I share with you 6 pure essential oils that do just that.

No. They’re not a substitute for a healthy, plant-based, wholefood rich diet, but they definitely should be a part of your regular self care routine.

First, a quick recap…

It was Hippocrates (the famous ancient Greek physician) who first recognised the importance of gut health by teaching and proclaiming that, ‘ALL dis-ease begins in the gut’.

But sadly today, most people (and their Doctors) fail to relate sickness and/or diseases to what’s happening internally inside the digestive tract.

It’s such a simple principle and yet it’s hardly spoken about in the medical world in favour of symptom-suppressing potions and drugs!

A journey, not a destination

Maintaining gut health is about embracing an ongoing lifestyle where you pay attention to your daily habits, rather than rely on a magic pill when you get sick.

If you simply wait for something to go wrong, you run the risk of causing any number of ailments and even serious diseases down the road within your body.

Signs that you have chaos occurring in your gut are symptoms like these:

  • Digestive problems
  • Brain fog
  • Fatigue
  • Problems sleeping
  • Skin conditions such as itching, rashes and nail fungus
  • Irritability
  • Anxiety
  • Depression

All of these are typically caused by constant stress on the digestive tract as a result of eating too much meat, processed foods, refined sugar and alcohol.

So how can plant essential oils help?

Essential oils are highly concentrated, pure extracts from plants that are 50-70 times more potent than herbs.

They are a safe, natural, alternative to synthetic medicine and a powerful defence mechanism for your cells. In the gut they work by killing bad bacteria and healing and protecting the stomach wall, so I recommend that you incorporate one or two of these pure oils into your daily health routine:

1. Lemon Oil

Lemon oil is one of the most versatile and readily available essential oils. It is naturally fragrant, purifying and anti-bacterial, making it effective for soothing and restoring the digestive system.

2. Cardamom Oil

Cardamom is a soothing oil that originates from the seeds of spices related to the ginger family offers fantastic gastrointestinal protection as a result of its anti-inflammatory and antispasmodic properties.In addition to its ability to prevent bacteria from growing it is also effective at preventing stomach ulcers.

3. Peppermint Oil

Peppermint is a sweet strong-smelling oil that is a great all-rounder in terms of both respiratory and digestive health and wellness. In regards to gut health, it can assist with indigestion as well as stimulate digestion processes.

4. Clove Oil

Clove oil from the buds of the … plant is widely known for its oral health and hygiene properties and is a great remedy for toothache and bad breath.By the same token its powerful antibacterial, antimicrobial and anti-parasitic characteristics are powerful for the gut as well, additionally its known to reduce intestinal tract inflammation, relieve stomach upsets and contains the compound ‘eugenol’ to fight yeast infections like candida!

5. Fennel Oil

With its strong liquorice flavour, Fennel is a potent root plant essential oil that is a wonder for maintaining and supporting optimal gut health. Full of antioxidants and antimicrobial agents it also prevents spasms, relieves gas and constipation and treats digestive issues like IBS. As an added bonus, it can also boost your metabolism and assist with losing weight!

6. Oregano Oil

Oregano oil from this popular cooking herb is also one of the most powerful in terms of killing off any unwanted bacteria, viruses, fungi or parasites that may be living in your gut!

It’s especially effective in times of digestive stress when you really need to get your digestion back to a normal healthy level of homeostasis.

A Blend of the Best

If you’re looking for a kind of ‘all-in-one’ blend that contains a combination of the best essential oils for supporting gut health, the dōTERRA DigestZen Digestive Blend is a an ideal product, or simply experiment with one or a few of the oils from my top 6 list.

How do you take essential oils internally?

If you are going to use any of the essential oils listed above to support your gut health, it’s essential that you ONLY ingest food-grade pure essential oils that have been produced using natural methods without chemicals or additives.

We use and recommend dōTERRA because of the purity, potency and efficacy associated with these oils.

The oils are each harvested in their own natural habitat and extracted using a distillation process to produce a finished product that is Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade – which basically means the highest quality essential oils available and verified safe for all ages and uses.

Always remember that with essential oils a little goes a long way.

When ingesting, use only a drop or two and dilute with a cup of water and/or a teaspoon of raw honey (which is also great for promoting healthy bacteria in the gut). For milder oils like Lemon Oil, you can place a drop underneath your tongue and swallow for quick access to your blood stream.

Whatever you do, be sure to make pure essential oils a part of your everyday self care, not only for a healthy gut but also for your overall wellbeing and as protection for your long term health.

Tolman Self Care: Big questions about cancer by Don Tolman (via

In the years that I’ve monitored the results of the “Cancer industry” – a crusade that I began after witnessing dozens of unnecessary deaths from surgery, chemotherapy and radiation – I have been shocked by the unnecessary over use of weapons of mass destruction. The problem with “Cancer” is that if they were to actually ever really solve the mystery, they’d solve the billions of dollars that this industry generates each year (i.e. millions of Doctors worldwide would need to retrain and ‘the business’ of Cancer would go bankrupt). And despite the immense money raised through countless charities each year and spent on so called research to find a cure, it’s never going to happen.I don’t mean to sound harsh, but through all my years of observational experience, personal research and in having being sent countless people who’ve been told to go home and get their affairs in order because they have incurable cancer, I’ve developed the firm belief that this industry is one of most ruthless and dangerous industries that has ever been deployed on the masses.The war on Cancer is a myth.  It’s not a war we should even be fighting.And if people would only dig in and do a little homework for themselves, they’d realise that there are certain serious questions that need to be asked of any ‘Cancer’ Doctor to be clear on the possible outcome, before undergoing any treatment.

So here are some of those BIG QUESTIONS:

Doctor, if I undergo this treatment will it actually cure my cancer or am I likely to require further treatment down the road?

Doctor, what are my chances of survival if I undergo this treatment?

Doctor, is the treatment you’re proposing one that you’d be comfortable prescribing to any family member of yours that had the same condition?

Doctor, is there any non-invasive alternative at all to the treatment that you’re proposing?

Doctor, what are the known side-effects I can expect should I proceed with this treatment?

Doctor, have you ever seen this treatment fail? If so, in what percentage of cases and are these cases documented?

Doctor, how much is your office going to make from administering the treatment that you’re proposing that I have?

Doctor, can you provide me with the names and contact details of any other patients of yours who’ve undergone similar treatment so that I can feel comfortable about proceeding with it.

These are completely reasonable questions that no one seems to ask because they place complete trust in their Doctor, because he/she is “an expert”.What we have is a system of “allopathic reductionism”. What this means is that Cancer industry success is based on a 5 year survival rate. In other words, if the cancer treatment i.e. the management of the disease, helps you to survive another 5 years, then the treatment was a success.  It’s crazy stuff!What if we walked away from “the war” altogether and started embracing “principles of health” instead, so that we can actually address what leads to Cancer in the first place?

To this day we have cultures – without a single medical degree amongst them – who have no trace of cancer in their communities. But why is this being completely ignored?Why is it that the work of such thoughtful practitioners like Sir Robert McCarrison, Dr Weston Price, Dr Robert Mendelsohn were a total embarrassment to medical science?  Go read up on what they’ve said about Cancer and Disease and ask yourself if their perspective makes sense.There is an old proverb: Fools ask questions wise men cannot answer. In the meantime, “fools” keep disobeying their medical masters by embracing ‘alternative’ treatments for cancer and those pesky testimonials keep coming in that are being hidden from broad public view.I honestly believe that many within the medical industry really do want to help people.

Most truly believe that they are doing the best that can be done to treat cancer and other diseases.  The problem is that ‘the system’ they’re a part of has evolved into an industry that is doing more harm than good. And the tragedy is that most people will not do themselves the service of asking the tough questions of their Doctor before going in for these treatments. They simply hand themselves over and blindly accept whatever the medical world throws at them because they trust it completely – all the while, there are no cures, no one is addressing the ’cause’ and the Cancer industry continues to grow.  Maybe, just maybe, it’s time we stopped ‘fighting this war’ and that we began to simply walk away and embrace a more common-sense path of achieving divine health and longevity.

Wouldn’t this make more sense?
