As I have been watching as many of these Immune Defense Summit interviews as I can, light bulbs are going off all over the place in my mind.

I have ALWAYS wondered why medicine wasn’t paying the most attention to understanding the immune system, as this is obviously the key to good health.

That’s why I got interested in The Healing Codes in the first place–because it addressed stresses that compromise the immune system.

This Immune Defense Summit is addressing the key issues of how the immune system works, what undermines it, and most importantly, what we can do about it.

And the people Jonathan Landsden interviewed are TOP in their fields. Many of them are doing truly ground-breaking work, such as Dr. Raphael Kellman in the emerging field of Microbiome Medicine. All in all, 36 of the world’s top experts in integrative medicine and science discuss the strengthening of your immune system to help protect you from all types of diseases, including autoimmune disorders, cancer, heart disease, dementias and even common pathogens like the flu, measles and pneumonia.

So many of my suspicions about the interaction of heavy metals, wireless technology, mold, dental issues, and toxins are being confirmed and informed by these experts.

The pieces of the puzzles of my own health issues and those of my loved ones and clients are coming together.

This is one series I MUST buy and listen to over and over. It’s one series I strongly recommend to you if you have any chronic health issue. Chances are, it is related to some challenge to your immune system.

You will finally get answers here.

“My Caregiving Experience”

Posted by: | Comments (4)

The following guest post comes from Cameron, who wrote to me about his experience as a caregiver when his wife had cancer. Unfortunately, Cameron did not know about The Healing Codes at the time. If he had, he says, it certainly "would have been a huge aide" to help him navigate the dark places, where he had to deal with emotions like fear and anger. I post his story to encourage you that, as Cameron learned, we are capable of more than we think–whether we're the caregiver of the recipient of care giving.

The most devastating moment of my life occurred on November 21, 2005. Heather, my wife, received a diagnosis of malignant pleural mesothelioma. Without any preparation, I was transformed into a caregiver in a moment. Only a few months earlier, we were blessed with the birth a baby girl, and we named her Lily.  We could not have been happier to be new parents. We were entering the holiday season, but instead of celebrating, we were beginning down a long, difficult path to beat cancer.

The process began in the doctor's office.  We both knew very little about mesothelioma, and we were given a choice of locations to find a specialist. However, Heather's silence spoke volumes; she was in shock and unable to make this decision. We had to choose between two nearby hospitals, which had no discernible programs for mesothelioma, and a mesothelioma specialist in Boston. His name was Dr. David Sugarbaker. I knew that if Heather had any chance of beating this disease, she would need the best care possible.  I told the doctor, "Get us to Boston!"

Over the next few months, a whirlwind of chaotic activity ensued. Our lives were completely transformed. Instead of being a two-income household, Heather stopped working altogether, and I scaled back to part time in order to keep up with my new responsibilities. I accompanied Heather to her medical appointments, made our travel arrangements to Boston and took charge of caring for Lily.

I tried to be strong for my family, but I was quickly becoming overwhelmed and exhausted. I also feared losing my wife and becoming a homeless single parent. The stress and pressure caused me to dissolve into tears on several occasions.  However, even in these moments of weakness I never let Heather see me down.  I knew she needed me to be strong for her, and that's exactly what I intended to be.

Over the following months, Heather underwent mesothelioma surgery, chemotherapy and radiation treatments in an effort to beat this terrible disease.  Under the care of Dr. Sugarbaker, she underwent a surgery called an extrapleural pneumonectomy, in which one of her lungs was completely removed. It was incredibly difficult on Heather, physically, and me emotionally to watch her go through this pain.  However, she fought through and against all odds, she was eventually able to beat this terrible disease. Today, seven years after her mesothelioma diagnosis, she remains healthy and cancer free.

To all those who are currently fighting cancer, or caring for someone fighting cancer, the strongest advice that I could give would be to accept every offer of help that comes your way.  Throughout our journey, family, friends and even strangers came forward with offers of help.  We received everything from kind words of encouragement to much needed financial assistance, and this support helped us get through.  My biggest obstacle was learning to let go of my pride and accept these generous offers.  Take it from someone who has been there before, there is no room for pride in a battle with cancer.  Your community will be there to help you if you let them.  Asking for help is a sign of strength, not weakness.

Being a caregiver is hard.  It will likely be the most difficult challenge you will ever face, but it can also be the most rewarding one.  You will likely have bad days like I did, and this is inevitable and natural during such a stressful situation.  You must simply remember to never, ever give up hope for a better future for your family. 

I decided to return to school two years after the diagnosis.  My time as a caregiver gave me the courage to pursue this dream of mine. I graduated with honors and was given the opportunity to speak at the ceremony. I never dreamed that such a devastating experience could help me change my priorities, manage my time and enhance the quality of my closest relationships. During my speech, I told my fellow graduates what my wife's journey had taught me – that within each of us is the strength to accomplish incredible things, if we only just believe in ourselves and never give up hope for a better tomorrow.

Just read a great article by Dr. Mercola, about cancer. I love his information because it’s so complete, scientific, credible, and practical. If you aren’t getting his newsletter, I highly advise it!

I was struck by what he said at the end of the article, where he gives lifestyle suggestions to prevent cancer. Item #4 says, “Have a tool to permanently erase the neurological short-circuiting that can activate cancer genes. Even the CDC states that 85 percent of disease is caused by emotions. It is likely that this factor may be more important than all the other physical ones listed here, so make sure this is addressed.”

Dr. Mercola believes that “heart issues,” which of course is the focus of this blog, are probably the most important factor for staying healthy.

Dr. Mercola likes EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) for addressing emotional issues, but I think The Healing Codes are at least as effective. (See my article on the difference between EFT and The Healing Codes.) Perhaps Dr. Mercola is not yet  familiar with The Healing Codes.

You can use both EFT and The Healing Codes; they each do different things. I’m not sure if EFT addresses issues at the cellular level, it’s more of a meridian system approach for removing energy blocks. I believe only The Healing Code addresses and actually changes things at the cellular level, which, as this article mentions, is where the real source of just about any dysfuntion needs to be addressed.
