3 Steps That Can Help YOU Prevent and Survive Cancer

Have you had cancer or does anyone you love suffer from cancer? Today, Ginny Brant shares her powerful healing story and ways that we can prevent and survive cancer starting today!

Ginny shares, “I was on a mission to not get cancer because there was so much of it in my family. And it was four months after my mother died of breast cancer that providentially, as my sister would say, I found a lump in my breast. I had just done the Cooper River Bridge run with my husband. I walked briskly, but the point is, at the end of it that night, my ring got caught in my nighty in the middle of the night, and that’s when I found the lump. So I immediately looked into it, but I wasn’t too concerned about it. I had been here once before, and they weren’t anything to worry about. But I went to the doctor, and the first bad news was, yeah, this is cancer. And then the next week, more test results came back. They told me it’s not just cancer. It’s aggressive. And then, the third week after the results of the MRI came back; they gave me the news that brought me to my knees. They said it’s not only aggressive; it appears to be in your lymph nodes and different places in your body. Wow. I don’t understand. Because I went for a second opinion in Chicago of Cancer Treatment Centers of America. And the first thing that doctors went through with me was the risk factors for this aggressive breast cancer. There were eight of them. I didn’t have one of them. So since my mother had died from breast cancer, they did extensive genetic testing that showed nothing.”

This started Ginny’s search for how she could’ve prevented cancer and how she would beat cancer!

Here are her top three revelations that she shares will help prevent and increase your successful survival of cancer:

Emotions:

Your emotions can draw illness. These unresolved emotions, things like in my case for 15 years, I took care of ailing parents, a father with dementia, and a mother with breast cancer. The point is, we were in a grief cycle we couldn’t get out of. I’ve discovered that long-term grief, long-term anger, or any long-term negative emotion can suppress your immune system. So 15 years of not being able to stop grief put my body in a position where it couldn’t heal normally and regenerate. It suppressed the immune system that God had given me.

Toxins and heavy metals:

My doctor tested me, and I had heavy metals because of the chemo. I was introduced to the infrared sauna company. I thought they would test heavy metals, which I already knew, and how we keep track of my progress. They pointed me to 15 out of 20 chemicals in that chemical profile, that red high zone in my body, and many of them work endocrine disrupting hormones, or what we call Xeno estrogens that mimic estrogen in the body. I had an estrogen-based and aggressive cancer. So when I showed the results to my doctors at the cancer center, they said, ” Oh, this is definitely one of the causes of your cancer.

Healthy Gut:

Having a healthy gut lining protects you from cancer. It protects you from brain disease, heart disease, and even severe symptoms of COVID 19. The research is clear that 70 to 80% of your immune cells are in that gut lining. And so we must keep it nourished adequately with fruits and vegetables and plants and fermented foods.

Ginny shared that she was very intentional. She was very different. She said, “You know, I just asked God to guide me as I was doing my research, and you know, like He clearly pulled back the curtain on cancer for me, and I never would know everything that was going on in my body, but I saw the main things that would give me something to work with so that I could respond well after receiving the worst chemo known to mankind. I could restore my body back to full health. And why is that? Because God created our bodies to heal on an everyday basis. It is a miracle, and when we start to remove all the things that are suppressing that, then our body can get back to healing and regenerating as God created it to do.”

Fear and panic don’t have to be your story!

Can we have victory over anxiety? Can you overcome panic attacks? Our world is so busy! We can have the peace of God in the craziness when we learn how to overcome fear and panic by partnering with God.

At 25 years old, Christy Boulware was so successful, but in 2011 she had her first panic attack. Her life snowballed from there- paralysis, vision issues, and she had to rush to the emergency room in the middle of the night. All the tests show that ALL is fine- NOTHING was wrong with her. She felt like she was dying. The doctor said to Christy, “You have anxiety.”

Christy was shocked! Christy had everything: money, success, children, and happy marriage.

But her anxiety got worst, and she had back-to-back panic attacks. She had to have her mom help take care of her children because she couldn’t get out of the bedroom. She then had suicidal thoughts. 

The fact is that anxiety will manifest. Stress and anxiety can physically show up: shortness of breath, GI tract can be impacted, the tension in your body, and maybe your chest tightens. There will be constant obsessive thoughts. Then, spiritually we are attacked through fear.

Christy shares that your nervous breakdown can be a nervous breakthrough!

From her own experiences, Christy shows how you, too, can find victory over panic attacks and anxiety.

The two lifesaving keys to overcoming anxiety are surrender and prayer! Christy invites you to do as she did and untie your superwoman cape. No one is capable of doing it all! No matter how highly successful we are, we must pause and allow God to take control of our lives, cry out and surrender to God. 

Christy shares that she was a fan and not a follower of God but committed to going deeper with God. This is where her healing began.

She shares that we need to pray for God to help us and line up Christian helpers, doctors, counselors, and friends. These influences will help give us strength and encourage us to take faithful steps.

We can’t get too comfortable in our pain. We need to take steps to gain victory!

God wants to help. He wants us to have victory! Fear is mentioned over 360 times in the Bible. We will face it, but we don’t have to stay in it and overcome it through the power of Jesus.

Here are a few keys to help us move out of anxiety into God’s healing arms:

  1. Surrender- allow God to be our ALL. We need to surrender everything to God so that He can lift us and heal us.
  2. Prayer- Pray- do not be anxious about anything. In the scripture, we get a prescription straight from God. Philippians 4:6-7, “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.” 

The prescription is to mix these ingredients:

-Pray and ask God for help

-Be thankful; don’t grumble and complain

– Find His goodness and grace in everything

-Ask Him to help you where you need help, get specific with your needs- then the peace of God will fill our hearts and minds

  1. Find a Christian counselor who helps you see it as God sees it, mixing theory and truth.

Remember, there is no shame in anxiety or panic attacks. Don’t stay stuck, and please take the steps needed to find the healing Christy shares that helped her find victory! Also, don’t feel like a failure if you have a setback. You will see success as you keep seeking God’s healing touch.

You Can Beat Anorexia a Hope-Building Story

Tina Yeager is a licensed mental health professional with personal experience with anorexia. Today I will be sharing her journey of overcoming anorexia. Tina shares her hope-building story on her victory in overcoming anorexia, tips, and ways to help navigate healing.

It started with middle school age junior high school. She didn’t fit in and wasn’t popular. Someone suggested that I might be a little chunky and need to be thinner to be included. Precise details on food, and I thought if I could be smaller or thinner. Maybe they would let me even be in the background.

She became very restricted with what she ate. This lasted about eight years. She never reached the worst stage where you lose your period. In middle school, she starved herself so severely that her elbow was the most significant part of her arm. Her hips stuck out, so only bones appeared. Her skeleton poked through her clothes. 

She ate under 1000 calories a day. Then she over-exercised. She would exercise in intense heat to sweat more pounds off. Her parents began to see her lose interest in food. So she began to hide it very well.

She would take laxatives to lose weight. She would work during meal times to not have to eat with the family. She became very good at hiding her disorder. She even hid rat poison in her bedroom. Instead of getting better, she got better at hiding her anorexia.

She said these are thoughts I was thinking, “I am never going to be thin enough, and I am never going to be good enough,” throughout the entire eight years of her battle. Her self-image was not based on God’s lens but through her filter of not being good enough or thin enough.

Tina got worse and worse. Her non-eating and exercise led to terrible consequences. Desperate to be thin at all cost!

But God had a plan of healing. Tina became pregnant, and it saved her from anorexia! 

The darts of the anorexia disorder attacked Tina, but God unexpectedly delivered her! After she found out she would have a baby, she began to take care of the baby inside of her and started to eat healthily. She focused on her baby!

Tina then became immersed in God because something beyond her was vital. She began to focus on God first. She began to look at her life as a mother and a parent. She studied God’s word to give her statements of value and worth.

It takes a process. It takes time to heal. This is not a one and done with this eating disorder mindset. This takes time to unravel. Here are some tips to overcome anorexia:

  1. Get Christian counseling offering spiritual help as well physical help expediting healing 
  2. Every story is different, so all of them can be worked through with prayer, believing God will deliver and heal anorexia
  3. Address medical issues along with counseling to prevent long-term medical problems

Tina shares that one of the essential tips she can give us is to have deep conversations with your teen or young adult if you suspect anorexia. If we don’t try to address the issue, they can continue hiding it. This is the best way to start the journey of healing.
