Default Amazing Transformation. :)

This has been posted before. It still has power and serves well to remind us not to let beliefs, ours or others, imprison us. Many of us around here are facing challenges right now of one kind or another. Success IS possible!

In 2011, my wife and I were attacked on the streets of Buenos Aires. My shoulder was shattered and had major reconstructive surgery. Then, I felt getting knocked down was life but how you get up is living.
New Years 2013, I was diagnosed with cancer, lots of dark days in the spring. I can see this video in beating a "structural " problem -back, knees, shoulder etc. but I'm having a hard time relating - Never give up philosophy - to disease. Never had disease before.
Structural issues can be beaten on by his hard work and support; Disease takes a different tack.
my 2 cents

my 2 cents
Nassau, 20 years ago I was a part time psychotherapist at a mind-body clinic in Orlando. It was a 6 week intensive residential program for people with severe health challenges. I was then diagnosed with hepatitis-C. That explained my moderate elevation in liver enzymes over the previous decade. A liver biopsy confirmed the diagnosis and stage of liver fibrosis. I was scheduled to begin 8 months of 3 times per week injections of alpha-Interferon 2B. Prior to beginning that I switched from therapist to patient. For the next 6 weeks my days and nights were spent in every flavor of psychoneuroimmunology from Qi Gong to hypnosis, art and recreational therapies to guided imagery and touch therapies. One of the most profound of my memories was our death rehearsal where we were put into a deep hypnotic state and taken forward to our deaths and then even further to viewing our funeral. My group was comprised of people with various cancers, Lupus, and MS.

The day after I finished the program I had a baseline liver panel drawn prior to beginning chemotherapy. It came back normal. For the first time in over a decade my liver functions were normal. I went ahead and did the Interferon therapy. I responded but then relapsed. I then incorporated many of the modalities from Getting Well in my daily life. My hepatologist at Mayo was certain that my liver damage had accelerated greatly over the last 2 decades. Much to his surprise this spring a MR Elastography study showed that the scarring in my liver had actually DECREASED. It is now minimal. I still have the hep-C of course but can wait for the new and highly effective drug to hit the market in January. What made the difference? It wasn't clean living. Perhaps some of my supplements such as turmeric and milk thistle help. However I think that the mind-body regimen and my subsequent practice of it had a major role.

I want to point out though that healing does not always mean curing. Several members of my group passed away during the few years afterwards. Each of them felt that our time and treatment together enhanced what life they had left. It has for me and I hope that similar type activities help you as well.

Yancey says..."I want to point out though that healing does not always mean curing."

Now that is cogent, concise and appropriate. Well done, Sir.
Illness and disease (had none) seem so different to injury and related surgery (had a bunch); during the long PT work I could see a light at the end of the tunnel. Now its, ok 3 months are up - time for another surgery.
