The 10 Step Radical Remission & Total Health Program
The following ten steps are based on Radical Remission: Surviving Cancer Against All Odds and Radical Hope: 10 Key Healing Factors from Exceptional Survivors of Cancer & Other Diseases by Kelly A. Turner, Ph.D.
#1 Exercise: Daily activity including walking, softball, pickleball, possibly yoga/stretching.
#2 Spiritual Connection: Meditation, breathwork, reading spiritual material.
This is is a short prayer a good friend of mine shared with me from the Bahai faith:
Thy name is my healing, O my God, and remembrance of Thee is my remedy. Nearness to Thee is my hope, and love for Thee is my companion. Thy mercy to me is my healing and my succor in both this world and the world to come. Thou, verily, art the All-Bountiful, the All-Knowing, the All-Wise. Bahá’u’lláh (Thanks David)
#3 Empowering Myself: Staying in the transformational conversation as explored by Landmark Worldwide through participating in their programs and seminars). Continue to be of service to others, not only as a Write On Purpose Coach and writer/author but as a regular human being.
#4 Increasing Positive Emotions: Daily prayer and gratitude/appreciation. Laugh daily and watch funny shows/movies. (One of my favorites right now is Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist, also Friends, and The Big Bang Theory. (Yep. I am a nerd… a Cancer Cyborg Nerd.)
#5 Following My Intuition: Meditation to stay connected as well as regular J-Talks (writing in my journal and communing with my Higher Self and Muse).
#6 Releasing Suppressed Emotions: Regular forgiveness including forgiving the doctor who failed to recommend a PSA test to me in the 7-8 years I went to him even though I was well over fifty at the time, and perhaps others.
#7 Changing/Upgrading my Nutrition: Continue my research on the Keto Diet and lowering my carbs, I’ve eliminated sugar & alcohol, added more organic foods esp. vegetables, quality protein. Eliminate processed foods as much as possible as well as greatly reducing red meat. Continue to read Eat to Beat Disease by Dr. William Li. (Watch his YouTube Ted Talk.) I’m also leaning towards a more Mediterranean-style diet.
#8 Herbs & Supplements: Tumeric, Saw Palmetto, Vit. D Vit B12 plenty of water, hibiscus tea, etc. Also started IV vitamin C twice weekly (currently at Great Smokies Medical Clinic in Asheville) on June 24, 2021. I Will likely continue the IV regimen for 6-12 months and the altered nutrition for the rest of my life.
#9 Having Strong Reasons for Living: My vision is to celebrate my grandson Logan’s 21st birthday with my family as well as the other twenty before that one. I will continue to be of service as a Write On Purpose Coach, as well as sharing my own health and well-being journey to serve others. I will continue to live true to my Divinely Inspired Life Purpose.
My Divinely Inspired Life Purpose is to live a courageously creative life of purposeful, passionate, playful service with simplicity and spiritual serenity.
#10 Increasing Social Support: Staying connected with my family, Ann, Amber, Justin, and Logan. Also, continue socializing with my softball and pickleball buddies PLUS my Landmark friends and other personal friends. Regular/weekly calling people to connect.
