38 Year Cervical Cancer Survivor Jann Holden Used Natural Interventions

Sunday, July 30th, 2017

My first guest  Saturday, Jann Holden is a 38 year Stage 4 Cervical Cancer Survivor who through a strong determination, REIKI. and diet change overcome cancer without chemo, surgery or radiation. She is an  Ordained Minister, REIKI Master, EFT Coach,  Tuning Fork & Sound Therapist with over 35 years experience in my field.  I offer doTerra essential oil products as well as Nikken Magnetic products. I also offer advise on dietary changes, and supplements you may be lacking.  Hair analysis and saliva testing are also available thru my office, as well as ph testing and iodine deficiency tests.

She is very passionate about energy healing, REIKI in particular.  Much against my families wishes, I did not use the conventional methods of chemotherapy, radiation or surgery for my cancer.  Instead I took a class in REIKI and learned to work on myself.  Later I went on to become a REIKI Master. My work is now aimed at making a difference in other people’s lives as well, whether physically, emotionally or spiritually.

REIKI is a hands on modality that balances the energy of the body, allowing the healing process to take place.  My specialty is distant REIKI where I work off a picture or even just a name.  REIKI can be used on animals, and literally anything with “energy”. I have actually fixed machines!

One thing people must realize is that I am a facilitator to the healing process, not a healer. REIKI is not a religion and you do not have to believe in it.  The actual healing work is done by the person requesting the healing thru their intent and often dietary and lifestyle changes.

Although REIKI cannot always physically heal everyone, it does make a difference on other levels, meaning mentally, emotionally or spiritually.  It is especially helpful to the terminally ill, making their transitioning easier, more comfortable and acceptable to them.

I offer many other modalities as well, including EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques or tapping), Sound/Vibrational Therapies including OHM and color tuning forks, drumming, singing bowls, and I use crystals, orgonite and pendulums in my work.  I also offer Ear Candling, and Magnetic Therapy and roll-outs. I often combine some of these techniques.  Please see descriptions on each of these modalities.  My special is a combo tuning fork/REIKI session with special deep relaxation music and colored lights.  I call this “THE WORKS”.

My husband and I have been married for 40 years and own a small ranch in the foothills of Red Bluff, CA.  I have 2 sons and 6 grandkids that all live back near Chicago.

I enjoy trail riding on my horse, bike riding, camping,  gardening, country western dancing, gourmet cooking, and I am an avid reader.  Of course, my passion is healing work.More information is available at: http://jannholden.webs.com/aboutme.htm

Dr Carlos Garcia

Utopia Wellness is a leading-edge medical center that offers integrative, holistic, patient-focused medical treatments. Under the direction of Carlos M. Garcia, M.D., programs designed for anyone who wants to enjoy optimal health are offered: Whether suffering from a chronic illness or simply wanting to prevent disease. Our extensive menu of wellness programs complement each other by addressing all issues related to well-being.

Dr. Carlos M. Garcia M.D. received his formal medical training at the University of Massachusetts, Medical School followed by an internship in Internal Medicine and residency in Anesthesia, both at Hahnemann University in Philadelphia, PA.

After moving to the Tampa Bay area in 1984, he began his practice as an Anesthesiologist at Bayfront Medical Center, Edward White Hospital, and Physicians’ Community Hospital.

Over his years working in hospitals, he came to realize that traditional medicine was driven more by the profits of pharmaceutical companies and hospitals than it was on providing the patient with the best possible care. So in 1996, Dr. Garcia redirected his medical focus to natural alternative health care including holistic medicine, integrative cancer treatments, Chelation therapy, bio-identical hormone replacement, IV vitamins and antioxidants, and weight loss. In all of these areas, he uses non-harmful and natural alternatives to conventional treatments. His passion to help others achieve optimal health through natural medicine led him to found Utopia Wellness, where he incorporates the best that medicine has to offer, traditional and alternative.

Dr. Garcia’s focus over the past several years has been on helping people suffering from cancer and its related diseases. His approach is holistic in that he addresses not only the tumor or cancer but also on the whole person and the cause of the cancer. To be truly cancer free for life, you must identify and eliminate the underlying cause of the disease.  In 2012, Dr. Garcia published his book Cancer is a Symptom: The Real Cause Revealed where he addresses the prospect that cancer is merely a symptom and unless you heal the underlying cause, you will never be truly cancer free.He also co authored Cancer Free with Bill Henderson.

Dr. Garcia is a member of ACAM (American College for the Advancement of Medicine), ICIM (International College of Integrative Medicine), and the American Holistic Health Association.  Additionally, Dr. Garcia holds certifications in Chelation Therapy from the American Board of Chelation Therapy, and has given numerous lectures on various health topics to professionals, medical students and the public, has had a radio talk show, and has been interviewed for several health related television news topics.

Dr Gil Kajiki, Natural Rx for Thyroid/AutoImmune Conditions.

Sunday, June 19th, 2016

dr-gil-img

My guests next Saturday, Dr Gil Kajiki is the founder of the Valley Thyroid Institute. He graduated from the Pasadena College of Chiropractic and has been a chiropractor for 30 years. The main focus of his practice is thyroid and Auto Immune conditions.

Through working with his patients he developed the Kajiki Protocol for determining thyroid and autoimmune issues with a particular concentration on Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis. He offers his patients answers and protocols to improve thyroid function and overall health.

With his roots in chiropractic-biophysics, Dr. Kajiki was busy helping patients in the San Fernando Valley in Southern California with their spinal structural corrective care when his wife became ill with what at first appeared to be Epstein Barr.

As he watched his wife’s health deteriorate under the care of several doctors, Dr. Kajiki began a relentless search for answers to why his healthy wife could become so ill and yet no one seemed to know how to care for her. After more than two years of tests, medication, B12 shots, and finally hospitalization, it was her husband and not her medical provider who came to her rescue.

After countless hours of study, consultation with colleagues, and testing, Dr. Kajiki diagnosed his wife with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, an autoimmune condition that attacks the thyroid. He spent the next several months treating her autoimmune condition through natural supplements, lifestyle modifications, and dietary changes. She is now symptom free and doesn’t take any thyroid medication.

Dr. Kajiki couldn’t stand to think that perhaps somebody else was having to go through the prolonged struggle with this condition as he and his wife had. Because of this experience, he dedicated his practice to helping Hashimoto’s and low thyroid patients overcome their symptoms naturally.

Dr. Kajiki still works from his office in Tarzana, California, however his patients are from countries and cities all across the globe—many as far away as Canada, Romania, London and New Zealand. He is available to his patients in person, via skype or phone. Dr. Kajiki also has more than 100 video testimonials of successful outcomes from happy patients that implemented his Low Thyroid Protocol and are thrilled to tell the world of their success.

Dr. Kajiki has been interviewed several times on Lisa Garr’s “The Aware Show”, heard on KPFK. Garr (also a Hashimoto’s patient), collaborated with Dr. Kajiki on an educational 5 DVD series of self-help for patients with chronic thyroid problems called “The Thyroid Mystery Solved”.

Tara & Steve Mann (Cancer Crackdown) and Bernice Yoder (Pancreatic Cancer Survivor) Interview.

Sunday, March 13th, 2016

taramannMy first guests, Tara and Steve Mann, are Co-Founders, CEO and President of Cancer Crackdown. (This is a continuation of an interview started last show). Cancer Crackdown is a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit organization, their passion is to help fighters take their battle with cancer to the next level. They are unique in that they fight alongside those battling this disease. They develop plans and help fighters and survivors to be successful in following them to reach their overall health goals. They offer a wide range of resources and encouragement for those fighting, those surviving and those that wish to prevent this disease. We all have a choice in this battle against cancer, to survive or to prevent!!
Their mission is to be the trusted source of knowledge regarding natural therapies to defeat cancer and remain cancer free. We partner with fighters and survivors by supporting and navigating them through their battle. Together, they develop a unique plan that is specific to each individual and instills in them a fearless approach to winning the battle.
Cancer Crackdown started as a small group on Facebook in January 2012 with a few people who wanted to share some information on tips and best practices during chemo. Cancer Crackdown has grown and we are now serving cancer fighters all over the world!!
Cancer fighters that can no longer take chemo or choose not to are in dire need of accurate information and guidance. Due to the vast amount of information available and many untrustworthy sources on the internet, it makes it difficult for us to make decisions about what is viable information and thus dissuades many from knowing what is worth trying. We have and will continue to research topics of interest and ensure credibility of sources. We help put patients in contact with proper practitioners in their area and locate services for them that may benefit their treatment. We are in the process of building on the services we are able to provide to cancer patients that we are so fortunate to partner with during their difficult time. More information available at: http://www.cancercrackdown.org

berenice yoderMy second guest is Bernice Yoder, a 9 year pancreatic cancer survivor. Berenice says: I will be a nine year pancreatic cancer survivor this coming November. When I found out I had cancer, I had no idea what pancreatic cancer was. It had never touched my immediate or extended family. It was something you heard of or read about, not something that happened to you.

This illness changed my life. It gave me more will to live, to be able to finish raising my then 13-year-old daughter who had just lost her dad 15 months before. It taught me to fight, and to never give up. There is always hope even through the pain and grief and anger that is part of this terrible illness. I am proud to say I am a survivor of one of the deadliest cancers
