The Fear of Cancer [Free Webinar Replay]

Fear is a very important natural response helping us to protect ourselves and deal with life-threatening or dangerous situations. Fear is an important emotion >>> WATCH THE WEBINAR REPLAY HERE  <<<  and has been hard-wired into our biology due to its vital role in the survival of the individual. Researchers have found that fear is established unconsciously and that the amygdala is involved with fear conditioning.

It was also discovered that fear can contribute to behavioral changes. It was examined that fear conditioning may play a huge role in altering an animal’s (or human’s) behavior in a repeated stress paradigm.

Our senses play a major role in how fear is perceived. A visual stimuli is first received by the visual thalamus and relayed to the amygdala for potential danger. This information is sent to the visual cortex to see if the stimuli poses a potential threat. If so, we react with muscle contraction, increased heart rate and blood pressure and our sympathetic neuronal pathway (flight-flight) is activated.
It has been shown that if more senses are involved (like visual, auditory and self-talk) the perception of fear or suspense will be amplified.

There’s a big difference between how we process or develop fear under different circumstances. 

For example a natural incidence of a healthy fear reaction might be the threat of being eaten by a dangerous animal or being injured in an earthquake or other survival situation. This is an important and essential part of our biological-protective behaviors.

But many times our fear’s have actually nothing to do with reality. They are based on “subjective” perceptions of reality based on our beliefs, past experiences and conditioned programming.

Fear creeps up inside of us and we might not even know where it’s coming from or what triggered it. We talk to a person and suddenly we are fearful. We hear about an earthquake far away and suddenly can’t think straight anymore. We hear a strange sound in our car and are afraid the car is broken or will crash.

It seems whenever we feel helpless, alone, don’t have a strategy to deal with a situation or don’t perceive reality with awareness fear and anxiety may appear.

But you might ask what has this to do with cancer? 

One of the most predominant emotions most people feel when they talk about cancer or if they are due for a health checkup or if they suddenly discover a lump … is FEAR.

Fear seems to be such a predominant state of mind and emotion when we talk about cancer that it is almost impossible to think in a logical, smart and conscious way. We want to win the war against cancer, we fight tumors, we use all possible weapons to defeat the “overgrowing cancer cells”.

And all this without really knowing what causes cancer.

But it seems a shift is happening. Many doctors, researchers and people – like you and me – are starting to question the old models of “waging a war against cancer” and are exploring new ways that go beyond biochemistry or fighting disease.

Let’s step back for a second. Let’s NOT talk about which therapy, modality or treatment needs to be applied. Let us go beyond Traditional, Complementary or Alternative Models and ask a powerful and absolutely important questions:

WHY? Why is this happening? Why does the body react with a tumor? What’s the process involved?

And let’s look beyond biochemistry, risk factors and other old models based on managing the “disease”.

To me it seems clear, that we can’t really understand the cause and process of any illness without taking our emotions, thoughts, social experiences and our lifestyle into account?

From a holistic and integrative perspective our body is actually a powerful self-healing “machine”. Every organ is our body is constantly aiming to regenerate and repair. Every cell is being renewed regularly to ensure our survival.

We start to realize that there is an Art and Science of Self-Healing that allows us to understand the WHY and the HOW.

Knowing the root-cause(s) and the process of self-healing transforms the fear into knowledge and awareness. Fear disappears if we are aware and feel a sense of control, confidence and empowerment.

Our symptoms are not something we are dreading (because we don’t understand them) but something we trust as messages from our body-mind and feedback we can use to change and align with our life’s path.

Breast Cancer – Are you being kept out of the loop?

“When we have inflammation, swelling, dragging or stinging pain in the breasts, and have been diagnosed with Carcinoma in Situ, this may be the breasts going through a regeneration self-healing cycle after a period of significant emotional trauma to do with loss of touch or nurturing.”
Next week is BREAST CANCER awareness week. and I get asked to stand on street corners with a bucket to collect money.
Every year the TV and radio ads go on and on about ‘finding a cure’. But here’s the thing: many of the answers are already here, they’re just not well known (yet).
So I’d rather spend my time writing a blog like this to give people REAL information that can help them right now, rather than waiting for this elusive ‘cure for cancer’ which never seems to arrive via the media.
So here’s the low down on breast cancer which you’re probably not being told:


The body is an incredibly intelligent machine. It knows how to maintain health and it knows how to heal itself. If we get ill there are tangible, discoverable, resolvable reasons, and symptoms are rarely (if ever) random.


Symptoms are not a mistake and come in response to the stresses and emotional challenges we have in our life. They come as a result of uncleared emotional hurts from the past, or present, building up to such a state of ‘dis-ease’ within the body that they turn into ‘disease’.


Symptoms also come as a result of the unconscious ‘damage’ we do to ourselves by living a life that is not in harmony with the ‘laws of life’ and ‘laws of health’ which we are unwittingly breaking. Just as when we break a law in society there are consequences (eg jail) so too are there consequences when we break the laws of health. The question is, do you know what these laws are, and are you breaking them? If you are ill, the answer will be yes. (By the way don’t get offended, worried or concerned by that statement – we are always doing our best as a human being, it’s just we do things unconsciously that harm us).


Symptoms have meaning and message. They have a purpose. It’s up to us to decipher the meaning beneath them. Do you know how to do that? Most people don’t, because we haven’t been taught how to. In fact, most of us are not even taught to question symptoms. They just ‘are’.


Society and ‘the establishment’ tell us to ‘fight’ the ‘war’ on cancer. No-one ever wins a war. It’s not about fighting any illness. It’s about getting on the same side of symptoms and making friends with them. Symptoms are your friend. They have a message to tell. They have a story. They are trying to tell you something very important. The question is, will you listen? Will you take the time to interpret them? Without the right tools and skills this can be really hard, especially as we all have our own ‘dark side of the moon’ where we just don’t ‘see’ our own stuff.


Every cell, tissue and organ in the body has a dual function: physical and ‘meta’ physical. Meta means beyond or above, so metaphysical is not some ‘woo woo’ term. It just means beyond physical.

So for example whilst the digestive tract digests our food, it also has to digest our emotional lifeThis is the BIGGEST missing piece in understanding the real root cause of any symptoms or illness.

stress regen cycle simple

Symptoms are often a sign the body is already self-healing and in a so-called ‘regeneration’ cycle. This applies to breast cancer too.

Bearing in mind the physical function of the breasts is to ‘nurture’, so it is for the metaphysical function. It’s all about how much do you feel nurtured? Were you nurtured as a child?  Are you nurturing yourself? Are you being nurtured by others right now in your life?

For example, Carcinoma in Situ:

When we have inflammation, swelling, dragging or stinging pain in the breasts, and have been diagnosed perhaps with Carcinoma in Situ, this may actually be the breasts going through the regeneration self-healing cycle after the body-mind has experienced a ‘regeneration trigger’ after a period of significant emotional trauma to do with loss of touch or nurturing. 

For example, say you are in a loveless or abusive marriage for 10 years and are receiving no nurturing love or attention from your partner. During this time you have felt frustrated, unloved, unheard, invalidated, sad, lonely, upset, devastated… but you put up with it because you don’t know how to stand up for yourself or meet your needs (which in turn is due to childhood experiences we don’t have time to go there in this blog).

You suffer in silence, the emotional pain building up inside you for years. Then you finally decide ‘it’s enough’, it’s the last straw, I’m finally going to leave him’ and you do.

It’s traumatic, it’s difficult to leave, but at the same time it’s a HUGE RELIEF because FINALLY you are putting yourself first, you are meeting your own needs. You are LOVING  AND NURTURING YOURSELF.

You make the decision and you part ways. You move out, and although it’s lonely to begin with, and quite a shock to be on your own, your body HEAVES A SIGH OF RELIEF as you are finally out of this ongoing stressful environment which was creating untold ongoing levels of stress and emotional pain. This is the regeneration trigger. Your body can now start to heal and re-balance itself, as it is perfectly designed to do. And paradoxically it starts to manifest symptoms of inflammation, swelling, dragging or stinging pain in the breasts, and you are diagnosed with Carcinoma in Situ. 

Oh my God! Immediately you think something is wrong and panic. The fear kicks in. “I have cancer”. This is how it is for so many women – so much fear because the underlying causes of symptoms (any symptoms) is not understood.

What you haven’t been told is that the breast ducts are affected by LOSS OF TOUCH or LACK OF NURTURING. You have not been told that during the stress phase (eg when you are putting up with the emotionally stressful marriage) there will be ulcerative dilatation, numbness and perhaps retracted nipple. The numbness comes from your body-mind ‘numbing out’ the emotional pain.

Then in the regeneration phase, after the regeneration trigger (of moving out, putting yourself first etc) the inflammation, swelling, dragging, stinging begins. And that is when the diagnosis of Carninoma in Situ is made. From the doctor’s perspective ‘it’s a mistake, it’s bad’. From the body-mind’s perspective, it’s self-healing. What a radical shift in perspective!

The body is far too intelligent to make mistakes. It does not make mistakes. Symptoms are not a mistake!


The body is far too intelligent to make mistakes. It does not make mistakes. Symptoms are not a mistake! Your body is doing what it needs to do to re-balance after the period of stress and emotional trauma. It knows what it is doing.

I do need to stress at this point that the example above is a simplistic example of how this works, but hopefully it will give you an idea and some fresh perspectives.

The main point is that symptoms are not a mistake, they have a meta-physical meaning, and if we work out what the emotional trauma cause is, and HEAL THAT, then the body will heal itself because it’s designed a self-healing machine.

And the other point here is that we can stop being so afraid of symptoms and diagnoses. We can start to understand that the body knows how to heal itself, and as long as we heal the underlying emotional pain, it will self-rectify, because it’s designed to do so.

We all know this on one level: if you break an arm, you expect it to heal. But remember, it’s not the plaster cast doing the healing. The plaster cast just holds the bones in place so the body can work its magic.

If you find this all too hard to believe and are saying ‘what a load of poppy cock’ I hear you. This will either (a)  sound unbelievable if this is the first time you are hearing such a theory or (b) you will say “Oh my God, this makes so much sense”. This leads me to the next topic…

The level of healthcare you choose will depend on your own internal (subconscious) beliefs which come from your familial / societal / cultural / personal conditioning.

The level of healthcare you choose will depend on your own internal (subconscious) beliefs which come from your familial / societal / cultural / personal programming or conditioning. We are all unconsciously ‘programmed’ by the age of 7 by our environment, depending on the culture, country, family of origin, ancestral history and more. So what are you ‘HEALTH BELIEFS’? What do you believe is possible around health? What have you been taught about healing and illness?

For myself, I grew up thinking the one and only solution was to go to a doctor and get medication or have surgery. I was never told that symptoms have a meaning or purpose and that you question why they are there. I was never told this. What about you? What is your programming?


You can check out my free ‘what causes illness’ or ‘what healthcare is right for me’series for more ways to enhance your health from the inside out.

This is why I created my free e-book ‘Your health beliefs guide’ which you can find inside the free online program ‘Which healthcare model do I choose?’ 

You may also wish to find out more about the causes of illness (any illness) in my free ‘What causes illness’ online program, which talks about the many physical, mind, emotional, environmental causes of illness. It goes into great detail of how we choose our healthcare options according to our unconscious programming and beliefs!


My colleague Johannes is running a webinar on what really causes breast cancer. IT WILL BE FASCINATING. If you are fed up of hearing the media going on about ‘finding a cure’ (and never doing so), or know someone who would like an alternative medication-free surgery-free option to breast cancer, THIS IS A MUST-WATCH EVENT. You can register here for the webinar.

I also highly recommend you seek yourself out a Lifestyle Prescriptions Health Coach. They are trained (like myself) to decipher the hidden messages in symptoms, the deeper meaning within the illness. We can show you how to reverse symptoms without medication, just by healing the root emotional causes, and yes, it’s possible!

So the question is, are your health beliefs serving you or keeping you from the answers and solutions you really want?

If you’re happy with your healthcare choices, great! But if you want more answers, more solutions, more understanding, more choices, and in particular want another route that doesn’t involve medication, supplements or surgery, then maybe it’s time to upgrade your healthcare choices!

Wishing you the healthiest life!
