My guests this week were Diane Goldner, an energy healer and author, and Denise Parchrz, a diabetic reversal coach and author.

Diane Goldner graduated cum laude from Barnard College, and began her career as a journalist. She has written for the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, American Health and other publications, and has served as editor for Variety and USA weekend. While doing research for an article, she was introduced to the field of Energy Healing and began to study it further. Now, 20 years later, Diane is an internationally known healer. She is based in Los Angeles, but also has offices out of New York. She does long distance healings all over the country and internationally. Diane is currently listed as a recommended resource by Christiane Northrup, M.D., and her books are recommended by Bernie S Siegal, M.D and Dr. Mehmet Oz.

In addition to the 3 books Diane has written, her work has been published in many magazines and websites, including on, and recently in US News and World Reports.

Diane’s work focuses on bypassing our usual resistance and working with the mental body at a deeper level (super conscious and unconscious) to create a foundation for healing a number of different aspects of a person’s life. She has a wide range of examples on how she has worked with clients to heal from a variety of illnesses and injuries, work on strengthening and defining relationships, fertility and even deal with financial issues.

Denise Pancyrz is a national holistic lifestyle coach specializing in diabetes reversal, speaker and author of The Virgin Diabetic: Reverse the Effects of Type 2 Diabetes, Reduce Medication, and Improve Your Glucose Levels, Second Edition.  Like millions of Americans, she was burdened with type 2 diabetes, prescribed a handful of medications, four daily insulin shots, and endless trips to the doctors.  After hearing from the medical community there was no hope to stop the insanity, Denise realized she needed a new course to regain her health naturally. Denise restored her health.  No more medication – no more insulin injections – no worry of drug side effects.

Denise is certified in Holistic Nutrition and Homeopathy. A Certified Six Sigma Green Belt, Denise spent a decade in the laboratory industry. After she received her diabetes diagnosis, she created her blueprint to reverse the deadly effects of diabetes. Denise’s blueprint paves the way for diabetics to truly learn how to reduce or eliminate medication and insulin while improving their glucose levels.

Denise’s journey started in Chicago until she and her husband, Larry, found their paradise in Naples, Florida.  Denise and Larry love to walk on the beach, golf, and enjoy all that Naples has to offer.

Can Bitter Melon Prevent Pancreatic Cancer?

Wednesday, March 20th, 2013

logo1267406_mdA recent study published in the journal Carcinogenesis concluded that bitter melon juice restricts the ability of pancreatic cancer cells to metabolize glucose, thus, cutting the energy supply to the cells and eventually killing them. This study goes beyond an earlier study in a petri dish that showed the effects of bitter melon on breast cancer cells. while exploring the effect of bitter melon on pancreatic cancer cells the research says they found an “Alterations in metabolic events in pancreatic cancer cells and an activation of the AMP=activated protein kinase, an enzyme that indicates low energy levels in the cells.” In a later study using a mouse model they found that when mice were fed bitter melon juice they were 60% less likely to develop pancreatic cancer than the controls. Researchers said “Many researchers are engineering new drugs to target cancer cells’ ability to supply themselves with energy, and here we have a naturally-occurring compound that may do just that.” Further trials are planned.
