Cancer and Healing Touch - My Journey

Posted by on in Energy Magazine

Originally published in Energy Magazine: The official Publication of the Healing Touch Program Feburary 2011 Issue

In November of 2004, during a routine physical, my doctor felt a mass in the lower right side of my abdomen. Further testing revealed the presence of stage 4 neuroendocrine carcinoid tumors that had originated in the small intestine and metastasized to my liver and peritoneum. This is a “rare cancer” they said, one of the “best” to have because it grows slowly. “This is cancer,” I said. “There is nothing good about it.” I was 51 years old. My world was rocked.b2ap3_thumbnail_Cancer_treatment_Healing_Touch.jpg

My grandfather was a chiropractor, one of the first in the Chicago area. As a child, I was adjusted regularly and raised without immunizations. Chiropractic became my primary medicine of choice. Natural healing principles became second nature to me as I studied herbalism, homeopathy, nutrition, and iridology. You get the idea.

I had cancer? The diagnosing gastroenterologist said I needed surgery. He called my home often asking if I had seen a surgeon. Those calls were never returned. He finally sent a certified letter with all the grim news.

During 2005, I traveled the country looking for the natural magic bullet. It took that long for me to realize that I was in profound denial and that the tumors were still growing. Did I intend to take any immediate steps to prolong my life? One night at the end of February, 2006, I found myself experiencing intense, excruciating pain. Weak and sweating, I assured my husband that it would pass. After several hours, it did, and I fell into an exhausted sleep. In hindsight, I came to understand that the pain was the result of an obstruction that eased when the intestine stretched around the tumor instead of rupturing. This was my first miracle and a huge wake-up call. Shortly after, major surgery was performed and I began the long and painful recovery that brought me to Healing Touch.

Nicholas Brady is a healer. He has enthusiastically agreed to allow me to assist him this day as he works with his mother in a Healing Touch session. He assists her to the table and then inquires “What is bothering you today, Mom?” She relates that she has tight shoulders and a tension headache, in addition to a mid-lower back ache, which she feels are all related to the over-scheduled calendar that she has recently been following. Nicholas makes sure that she is comfortable lying face down on the treatment table with her head resting in the face cradle. He reminds her that he is placing a bolster under her feet to decrease the pressure on her back.
