Gathering options was vital in making my best decisions to heal cancer rather than kill it. Beyond physical, I was able to address the emotional & spiritual aspects that contribute to disease.
We are all endowed with the power of choice, and I urge you to leverage these resources on your own healing path"
~ Shari Hall Smith
Cancer came early for me at age 36, I got through the first diagnosis and was cancer free for 22 years until it came back metastatic and no cure in 2014. My goal is to manage the disease with my quality of life.
It's crucial to recognize that each individual must determine the treatment protocol that best suits their needs; what works for one may not work for another. For myself, I've chosen to forego many conventional pharmaceutical treatments commonly recommended in mainstream cancer care in the United States. Instead, I've embraced alternative modalities aimed at addressing the root causes and strengthening our innate immune system to effectively manage the challenges presented by cancer, all while improving my overall quality of life.
I've engaged in ongoing research to discover the most effective options and treatments for achieving the best quality of life. Recognizing the uniqueness of each individual, I believe in the importance of finding one's own path. My personal healing journey has seen success through the utilization of the resources listed below.
On both occasions when I was diagnosed with cancer, I encountered challenges that demanded solutions. My determination to share the extensive research and various options I've explored remains unwavering. I hope you can leverage any insights that resonate with you and persist in your quest for additional information to tailor your optimal treatment strategy.
I enjoyed good health until it took a turn for the worse at the age of 28 when I was diagnosed with Epstein-Barr Virus (EBV). My immune system faced relentless attacks, resulting in the onset of multiple autoimmune issues, including cancer. Determined to facilitate healing, I adopted a mindset focused on holistic well-being. This involved rejecting numerous prescription treatments and incorporating a non-toxic protocol to address the recovery of my body, mind, and spirit.
The inspiration behind the BallZ bracelets stemmed from requests by individuals worldwide who had read my published story, where a recurring question emerged—seeking insight into the process I undertook. Recognizing fear as a common hindrance to optimal decision-making, I crafted these bracelets as a support piece, each design inspired by a person along my own journey aligns with the healing properties of gemstones.
The feedback on how these bracelets offered support during challenges fills me with gratitude and fortitude, motivating me to keep the BallZ rolling.
I never saw myself as a writer and initially felt unqualified when invited to collaborate on a book project. Despite my self-doubt, I pushed beyond my perceived limits and submitted my story. "Absolute Vision" eventually became a best-selling book, boosting my confidence and motivating me to embark on my own writing journey.
Since then, I have obtained certification as a Transformational Life Coach for my own personal learning and growth.
Absolute Vision is an engaging, insightful collaboration by twenty-one men and women from Canada, the United States of America, South Africa, the United Kingdom, Nicaragua and Bulgaria.
The authors have teamed up to share their motivational, personal, TRUE STORIES of achieving their vision and intentionally creating an extraordinary life against all odds.
