I am a holistic healthcare practitioner specializing in Thermography, Body Talk, Essential Oils and Periotherapy using Lasers and ozone.
My story starts from birth, as I was born very ill and lived with chronic respiratory diseases which lead to 20 years of antibiotics and steroids. Around age 20 I began my search and studies for holistic alternatives and healed myself physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. The journey continues and time marches on and I love my life path, all that I have suffered through and all that I have learned because of it. My path has guided me to help and share with others.
When I think to tell someone about myself, I usually say I'm a cancer survivor, a cyclist, hiker, nature lover, writer, obsessed with travel, passionate cancer advocate, explorer of the world around me, bookworm, proud aunt, and so much more. It also crosses my mind to share that I love life. I prefer to embrace the good parts of life, but I know that the pesky bad also shapes who we are.
How do I know? I've learned this lesson (and thousands of others) simply by embracing life each day, but also from surviving cancer. Diagnosed at 21 with osteosarcoma (an aggressive form of bone cancer), and later with melanoma, I decided then to appreciate each day I was fortunate to live (you 'grow up' pretty fast when you're smacked with cancer as a young adult, realizing that your parents' hugs can't fix that problem). It's not always easy to smile at every moment. I know that. In the 20 years since my diagnosis, I faced my dad's cancer diagnosis and death, the loss of too many friends, treatment side effects, relationship ups and downs, career challenges and more that test my smile, patience and optimism. And yet, I still believe in that positive outweighs negative, that kindness and smiles can change the world for the better, and if we focus on gratitude, we'll be okay.
With God's help, I am on a healing journey from Stage IV Breast Cancer in it's metastatic nature, it is a challenge. I choose to contend using natural and holisic therapies and I LOVE IT. The lifestyle alone has been the best life developing the best me possible.
At this point, I've researched and searched high and low; I've seen a lot, heard a lot and most importantly learned continuously. I find it difficult to keep focus or follow any one protocol and often get overwherlmed with the infamous question, "what should I do"?
I'm totally obsessed with "buying and trying".. i haven't the money and hardly ever come across resources or even like-minded people whom I can confide and glean from. Usually there is a hefty price tag with that. So..the web communityit is!! And a world wide WEB it is. Such is life.
Born in 1950, Jeff Bell grew up planning to follow in his Dad’s footsteps through medical school to become a physician. He was so committed to this path that by the time he left high school he had most of his pre-med studies completed.
But as he was ready to begin selecting a medical school, something just did not feel right. He audited a number of classes at prestigious schools and quickly realized that far too much emphasis was being placed on suppressing symptoms and not enough on even identifying the core problems, let alone resolving them.
Disappointed and disillusioned, Jeff scrapped his plans for medical school and went back to engineering and high-end building to earn his living.
About 15 years later he met Dr. Henrique, an amazing chiropractor and master of Applied Kinesiology. Jeff fell in love with Dr. Henrique’s work, so he put the rest of his life on hold to study with and learn from Dr. Henrique. What he learned from Dr. Henrique gave him a solid platform to help people heal, often from daunting health problems that had not yielded to other approaches.
In the years since, Jeff has made it a point to study with a number of the world’s experts in leading edge alternative and natural health. Over the more than 4 decades that Jeff has studied and practiced alternative health, he has become a teacher, master healer and sought out leader in his field.
For more than 25 years Jeff has layered an intense study and investigation into the mechanisms of cancer and how to overcome them on top of his existing background in health sciences and alternative health.
He has helped many of his clients achieve remarkable recoveries, even after other practitioners declared their cases hopeless. Jeff’s approach has been so successful that his clients have begun calling him “The Overcoming Cancer Coach.”
