Laura Powers was born in the same part of France as one of the world’s most famous psychics: Joan of Arc. In a sense, it was her destiny to become a clairvoyant. But just like all journeys, Laura had to overcome many obstacles before finding her true path.

 

Having been thin all her life, at 30 years old Laura was on the edge of obesity. She had gained a ton of weight, and nothing she did was helping her lose it. She had bad skin, sleep problems, leaky gut, and PCOS. She was also unemployed and in a toxic marriage.

 

So how did she heal her body and transform her life to become a celebrity psychic, model, writer, actress, singer, producer and podcaster?

 

She tuned in, listened to her intuition, and connected with her guardian angels. There are angels everywhere, just waiting for you to reach out and ask for guidance. When she did, they answered. Knowing she wasn’t alone gave Laura the courage to make choices from a place of love and hope.

 

She transformed her diet, quitting diary, soy and wheat. Did you know gluten is one of the major factors in inflammation? And where there’s inflammation, there’s chronic disease. For Laura, this inflammation was so severe than after she quit wheat, she didn’t just lose weight, she dropped two shoe sizes! And then she discovered the she had parasites (Laura used Dr. Todd’s Microbe Formulas to get rid of these, and a huge tape worm!).

 

But healing has to be holistic to be complete - that means you have to go beyond diet and exercise to really heal. Take excess weight, for example. The body stores toxins in fat cells, as a way of protecting your organs from toxic damage. So if you’re in a toxic situation, or surrounded by toxic people, your body hangs on to that fat - no amount of dieting and working out will help. Until you do the inner work. When Laura left her marriage, she lost 30 pounds almost instantly.

 

Your emotions literally change the chemical structure of your cells with every single thought. If you don’t believe us, check out The Hidden Messages in Water. This groundbreaking work involved meditating over water, sending it either love or hate, and then taking photographs of the water molecules. The water that had been loved showed perfectly crystalized patterns. The water that had been hated was chaotic, misshapen and fragmented. We are made up of over 80% water. So what do you think is happening to your body when you are constantly hating it, or if you’re stuck in self-doubt, or are always criticizing yourself or someone else? Or if you’re always around negative people? Exactly. That’s why it’s so important to do the inner work, and take a step back from toxic relationships. Connecting with your intuition and psychic wisdom really helps with this.

 

How to access psychic wisdom:

  • Find some quiet time and pay attention to your intuitive messages.
  • Don’t be afraid - you’re not trapped in any situation.
  • Ask angels for guidance - they’re all around, just waiting to help you.
  • Practice, the Universe is always trying to communicate with you. If you pay attention, you’ll notice the signs. It’s a conversation: ask!
  • Book a psychic reading with Laura.

 

On the next episode, Laura’s back to talk about ghosts, angels and manifesting! Make sure you tune in!

What if every day you could elevate your consciousness, and create miracles in your life? Beating cancer can seem like a miracle. But it IS possible, and Hal Elrod is proof of this.

 

When Hal was 20, he had a car crash and died - he was clinically dead for 6-minutes. When he woke up from a 6-day coma, he found out he had 11 broken bones, brain damage and, according to the doctors, was never going to walk again. But he decided right there to maintain the faith that he was going to walk, and that he was going to do everything in his power to make it happen. Within 3 weeks of the car crash, he was taking his first steps. That marked the beginning of his life’s work. But it wasn’t an easy ride.

 

In 2007 Hal was in a tough spot. He’d lost half his clients, lost his house, he was broke and depressed. So he started looking into what the world’s most successful people do, and designed a morning ritual of self-improvement. Within 2 months, he’d doubled his income, completed an ultra-marathon, overcome depression and totally changed his life. To his wife, he said “It feels like a miracle.” That’s how The Miracle Morning was born.

 

You might feel that you’re not a morning person - most of us feel the same! But how you begin your day will either put you in a sub-optimal physical, mental and emotional state, or an optimal one. Start your day at your best, and you can give your best in everything you do. This will reflect in every aspect of your life. But how? You need simple, daily strategies that can be easily implemented. In The Miracle Morning e-book, Hal breaks down exactly what you need to do to begin uplifting your mornings, and uplifting your life.

 

But that’s only the beginning of the story.

 

Just 2 years ago, Hal was diagnosed with acute lymphotoxin leukemia - a rare cancer with a 30% survival rate. Not only that, but Hal also had a genetic condition that caused his cells to divide and replicate rapidly, making the cancer spread even faster. He had a collapsed lung, his kidneys were failing, and his heart was surrounded with fluid. He was told he had a 70-90% chance of dying within a few months. Going without chemo was not an option - his oncologist told him that the cancer was too fast, and if he didn’t have chemo, he would die within a week. After doing his research, Hal decided to have the treatment, while at the same time implementing every holistic practice he could to counter the negative effects. And it worked. The cancer went into remission.

 

Hal’s cancer-healing process:

  • No sugar
  • More greens
  • Lots of supplements (food-based)
  • Acupuncture
  • Ozone sauna
  • Beamer mat
  • Coffee enemas
  • Lymphatic massage
  • Read other people’s healing stories (check the links section for ideas)

 

Beyond all these methods is mindset. You need to believe that you can beat cancer:

  • Unwavering faith - faith is a loaded word, it’s elusive and unreliable, it’s a bit like hope, it’s fear-based. But faith in yourself and your limitless potential is a whole other story. Faith moves your goals from possible to probable.
  • Extraordinary effort - be committed to give it everything you have, and be ready to keep going.

 

Hal’s new book, The Miracle Equation: The Two Decision That Move Your Biggest Goals from Possible to Probably to Inevitable, is your process for goal achievement. It will help you step out of your comfort zone to pursue your biggest goals and dreams. Use it in conjunction with The Miracle Morning and you can achieve anything you set your mind to.

When someone is diagnosed with cancer, it feels like the end of the world. But it doesn’t have to be. Our guests didn’t just overcome cancer naturally, they used it as a platform from which to be a voice for positive change. Pretty powerful stuff!

 

Amanda Deming - Healing cervical cancer - Episode 8

Cervical cancer killed nearly 4,000 women last year. It’s the second most common cancer among women. Conventional treatments, like surgery, chemo and radiation, aren’t just poisonous, they often lead to infertility. When Amanda was diagnosed with cervical cancer, she was determined not to go down that road. Instead, she chose a raw vegan diet, meditation, and yoga. She’s now cancer-free.

 

Jeff Witzeman - Cancer can be killed - Episode 190

When Jeff’s wife was diagnosed with an aggressive form of bladder cancer, she was told her life would change forever: surgery, chemotherapy, radiation, a life without an essential organ. Instead of taking the doctor’s word for it, they travelled to Germany to treat the cancer to a spa. Thanks to juicing, a plant-based diet, hyperthermia (targeted heat therapy), oxygen therapy, intravenous vitamins, and colonics, she was completely cancer-free in just one month. 

 

Tracey Edmonds - The truth about healing cancer - Episode 226

Just like Alli, Tracey lost both her parents to preventable diseases: her mom died from cancer and shortly after, her dad died from a heart attack. This made her determined to be a pillar of health and to spread the message through as many media outlets as possible. She launched the wellness website Alright Now to give people the tools they need to live their healthiest life - from nutrition and fitness to relationships and parenting. We think she rocks!

 

Jill Tomback - Beating breast cancer - Episodes 26, 27 and 28

Jill and I were room-mates when she was first diagnosed with breast cancer at just 25 years old. She endured four years of conventional treatment, including chemo and surgery. But since then, she’s taken the holistic route: she’s a plant-powered Pilates superstar, an avid juicer and a big fan of the Gerson therapy. As of this year, she’s celebrating 9 years cancer-free.

Cancer. It’s the kind of diagnosis that no one wants to hear. And yet, cancer doesn’t have to be a death sentence. For our guests, cancer was an opportunity to build up their health from the inside, and be a force for positive change.

 

Evita Ramparte - Healing ovarian cancer - Episode 57

When she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer, Evita made the brave decision not to have surgery, radiation or chemotherapy - against her doctor’s wishes. She knew that toxic food and toxic thinking had caused her cancer, and she was determined to heal herself. Thanks to detoxing, fasting, and a lot of inner work, she did exactly that. In just 4 months, her tumor had disappeared, she lost 50 pounds, and felt better than ever before.

 

Chris Wark - Beating colon cancer - Episode 236

At just 26, Chris was told he had stage 3 cancer - it started as a tumor the size of a golf ball in his colon, and spread to his lymph nodes. He was given one option: chemotherapy. But poisoning himself back to health didn’t make sense to Chris. Just like Evita, he realized he’d created his cancer through his diet choices. So he switched from a standard American diet to a 100% vegan, 100% raw diet. The cancer disappeared. Now, he teaches others how to do the same.

 

Janette Murray-Wakelin - Overcoming breast cancer - Episode 52

Janette was given just six months to live when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. So she decided to use that time to change her life completely. Instead of accepting the chemo, she took the holistic approach: she went 100% raw vegan, oxygenated her blood, and started loving herself. After all, how can you heal yourself unless you love yourself first? Within 6 months, Janette was cancer-free. And as if that wasn’t amazing enough, she then ran a marathon, every day, for 366 consecutive days. We think she’s pretty incredible!

 

Jolen Philbrook - Healing breast cancer and kidney cancer - Episode 193

When it comes to surviving, Jolen’s an expert! She overcame cancer twice - first a rare type of breast cancer, then kidney cancer. At the same time, she was fighting a custody battle with no income. Most people would crumble under that kind of pressure, but Jolen pulled through. How? It all comes down to mindset. And power shoes.

Dr. Roy specializes in cancer prevention and reversal. But he doesn’t do it in the traditional way. He combines his background as a Buddhist, western medical training, in depth research into alternative healing, mental health therapies, and meditation, into the House of Health, a scientifically backed up system you can use to heal yourself.

 

In today’s episode, Dr. Roy answers Food Heals Nation questions on health, healing, and cancer.

 

#1. How do you know if you have physical/emotional/spiritual issues you need to deal with?

Look at your present life. How are things going? If they’re not going well, there’s something you need to look at. In Dr. Roy’s book, Healing Before You’re Cured, you’ll find 10 questions to help you figure out what is going on, and strategies to help you address whatever comes up. You can also tune into Episode 255, where Dr. Roy shares some simple strategies to quickly release negative emotions.

 

#2. How can we deal with chronic stress?

Chronic stress can lead to disease. And we are constantly stressed these days with all the demands we have to deal with - work, social media, expectations. But what is disease? It’s a state of not having ease.

 

We need to get out of chronic stress into a state of ease. How? Simple. Inhale, tense your body completely, and double exhale. Do it three times. Your body will automatically respond to the physical tensing by relaxing.

 

Here’s another strategy. In your brain, the limbic system deals with fight of flight - when you’re stressed, it sends a signal to your adrenal glands to release epinephrine, which in turn causes a physical reaction. It’s important to get out of that part of your brain, otherwise you carry on the stress response throughout the day, or longer.

 

Here’s how you shift to another part of your brain:

 

  • Close your eyes and picture the most beautiful thing you’ve ever seen.
  • Inhale that picture into your brain.
  • Exhale.
  • Smell the most beautiful thing you’ve ever smelt.
  • Inhale that smell.
  • Exhale.

 

This exercise connects you to something that is beautiful to you. These memories are in the cortex part of your brain. You cannot focus on two parts of your brain at the same time. By getting into the cortex, you move out of the limbic, and therefore out of that feeling of stress. You shut down the stress response and connect with peace.

 

#3. Where do you start after a cancer diagnosis?

First, don’t choose one or the other. You have both eastern and western methodologies at your disposal. Eastern medicine is over 7000-year-old, and deals with the mental, emotional and spiritual side. Western medicine deals with technology and drugs, and has billions of dollars’ worth of research behind it. Dr. Roy’s advice: do both.

 

Second, stop thinking about death. In life, nobody makes it out alive, cancer or no cancer. No one lives forever. Take death off the plate, and focus instead on how you want this to go.

 

Thirdly, take ownership. This is your life. Make a decision and get on with it.

 

Now you’re in a solid place to move forward. Things will start to come to you, depending on what you need to heal on your journey.

 

#4. How can we help people who don’t want to hear about the holistic part of healing?

You can’t treat someone who doesn’t want to be treated. You can’t fix someone. If you want to help, you have to take yourself and your needs about this situation out of the equation. You have to respect that person’s needs.

 

Instead of telling them what you think is right, you have to take a step back and ask them what they need or want to know. Don’t be afraid to be vulnerable and share how important it is to you. But accept that they might not want your help or your advice. For healing to take place, there has to be free will, that person has to want to heal. Pushing information on them will only build resentment. Accept where they are, lead by example and stay hopeful - because sometimes people change their minds.

 

 

If you want to know more, pick up Dr. Roy’s new book Healing Before You’re Cured, which is packed with simple evidence-based techniques you can use to heal the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual areas of your life. You can also sign up to Dr. Roy’s free email course by texting HEAL to 345345 or going to www.drvmd.com.
