It’s time for another awesome, eye opening, inspirational video! I’ve got a couple more incredible finds to share with you, and today’s documentary had me doing another happy dance. I’m no stranger to nutritional therapy – I’m a huge believer that the foods we choose are a direct reflection of our vibrations. As we raise our vibrations, our diets will change to reflect it, but we can also assist our energy changes by choosing different foods. It’s all connected, people.
Years ago, I heard of a doctor who’d opened a clinic in Mexico and was quietly curing cancer patients. At the time, I didn’t think much of it. After all, there’s a lot of crap floating around out there. This was before the internet, mind you, so it wasn’t easy to verify or dispute such claims. But I liked the idea of it – a rogue doctor having found “the cure”, fleeing to Central America to heal the sick. In my mind, he looked a little like Fabio (anyone remember him? The “I can’t believe it’s not Butter” dude? No? Just me? Sigh.) It would make a great Lifetime Original Movie. Well, it turns out it’s not fiction. There is a clinic in Mexico and several more around the world, which are actually doing the undoable – they are bringing people with terminal diagnoses back from the brink of death using the protocols of a German doctor name Max Gerson (although, he looks NOTHING like Fabio. Oh well, one can dream).
I’m not going to give you his whole life story here, the documentary covers that; nor am I going to give you a rundown of what the therapy entails (ok, really quickly, it’s all about the right nutrition). Instead, I’ll tell you why I love Dr. Gerson’s work and that of his daughter so much. It’s because it underscores an incredibly important message, one which we can’t repeat enough:
We are not powerless. We have everything we need to heal ourselves and progress right here, and we’ve always had it. The answer isn’t to find ever more complex solutions, to take more drugs, to invent bigger, better, faster whatevers. It’s to get simpler, easier, quieter, calmer, more basic. That voice inside you, the one that tells you to slow down, to take it easy, that all that other crap doesn’t really matter, that quiet little voice you’ve been taught to ignore, it has the answers. It’s in our food. It’s in our water. It’s in our spirit. It’s in our laughter and our joy. All we have to do is listen.
You’ve had the power to find your way back home to Who You Really Are all along, Dorothy.
I know a lot of you are suffering from health issues. Will the Gerson therapy help you? Use your intuition. Nothing helps everyone. There is no method or way of life that will overcome your vibration. But as I said at the beginning of this post, you can support your vibrational changes with higher energy foods. It makes perfect sense that honoring our bodies and what they need would help us to change our energy. So, sit back, relax and enjoy. Then, let me know what you think!
After posting this video, I received a question from a reader, regarding the apparent mismatch between the message this video sends and what I normally teach. The reader asked why I was supporting giving our power away to nutrition, when I normally supported the idea that all illness and how we feel is all down to our vibration. While answering her, I realized that I really hadn’t been clear about that in this post. I’m posting my answer to her here, so that all of you who may have had the same questions can benefit.
Thanks so much for writing to me with your question. I never meant to suggest that any diet held the answers or that if we just “eat right” that this will solve all our health problems. I thought I’d made that clear in the words I wrote before the video, but if I didn’t, I apologize and I’m grateful for the chance to explain.
Of course our health and the state of our bodies are a direct reflection of our vibrations and beliefs. And so, it is possible to eat whatever we want and stay healthy, or eat all the “right” foods and still get sick and die an early death (which, by the way is not some kind of failure. People don’t die because they failed to live longer. They die because it’s the next logical step for them).
However, I’ve found that food and how we view it and our bodies can play an integral part in helping us change our beliefs. So, for example, you may be ill and/or overweight and you’re looking for a solution. Now, of course, there’s something going on in your belief system – a lot of things actually (it’s never just one belief, that would be way too easy) – but how to do go about shifting all of that? One way I’ve found is to actually use food to help us shift our beliefs rather than fight against it (food) or try to somehow surpass it altogether.
So, you may look at different diets, different possibilities. What you find and what resonates with you will be shaped by your beliefs. But, if you pay attention to how you feel (maybe for the first time ever), you’re going to be able to find the BEST POSSIBLE choice you have access to. In other word, the choice out of the ones you have access to that most closely matches what you want – to be healthy and/or thin. As you then begin to eat this new way, you will start to feel better. You will be doing something that more closely aligns with Who You Really Are. Maybe you’re nowhere near your higher self yet, but it’s closer, and that’s the key. Now, as you go, you may notice, in time, that you begin to resonate with a different way of eating; or foods/methods/ideas come in that you didn’t have access to before. If you keep paying attention to those impulses and follow them, you will continue to move towards what you want.
Of course, as you do this, all kinds of emotional stuff will come up, too. And you may well have experiences that mirror specific resistance back to you. If you pay attention to those things, too, you will be able to release them. So, over time, the fact that you began to eat in a way that felt a bit better to you was the catalyst that moved you closer and closer to what you want and Who You Really Are. This is very different from just doing a diet or eating “right” out of fear, or trying to use action to get what you want. Paying attention to how you feel is the key.
Looking at the Gerson Diet offers people the chance to see food differently. Fasting and juicing often allow people the opportunity to shift a lot of energy and access vastly different perspectives they’ve never had access to before. For example, during one fast, I realized that I’d always been afraid of food. Not eating made me realize this fear and I was able to release it. Going raw allowed me to see that I’d always had a lot of guilt around food. The first time I had a raw chocolate smoothie packed with nutrition, I burst out in tears. It was the first time I’d ever had chocolate without feeling guilty about it.
These kinds of videos also show people that it’s possible to heal. It gives hope where there often is none. Just knowing that someone else has achieved it can often make the difference between continuing to try and feel better and resigning ourselves to powerlessness.
Of course, the goal is to get to the point where what you eat doesn’t matter at all. But many of us are nowhere near that and it’s a journey to get there. We can use food to help us go down that path. We can use the beliefs we have about food. I don’t personally know anyone who went from having food or health issues who was able to instantly drop all the beliefs they had around that and just be healthy and be able to eat whatever they wanted. It’s always a journey.
Ok, yeah, I get that maybe I wasn’t entirely clear on that.
Now that I’ve written all of this, I can see how many people might be confused about the post and the message. Again, thank you so much for sending me your question and giving me the chance to clarify. I’m certain that you represent the energy of a whole host of people who will be grateful that you did.”
