Feel GREAT Friday! I Believe in our Ability to help our Bodies Heal-Do you?

Dear future Pinksters,

Today’s Feel GREAT Friday blog post is inspired by my weekly Sunday school assignment. Specifically, Matthew chapters 8-9. They are about the miraculous healing’s Jesus performed.

The two major qualities all of the people had in common that Jesus healed were their BELIEF and desire that He could heal them.

I know from personal experience that BELIEVE He has healed me on several different occasions.

I have had MANY experiences which have led me to BELIEVE He has guided me to resources and people that would help me heal physically, emotionally and spiritually. I BELIEVE He hears and answers our prayers according to the desires of our hearts.

I BELIEVE with ALL my heart that He loves me and wants me to be healthy so I can serve Hi by serving His children. I BELIEVE I do this in one small way by sharing my story and by writing these blog posts.

Do you BELIEVE there is a cure for cancer? (Hint: Otto Warburg won the Nobel Prize in 1931 for discovering that cancer cells can not survive in high-oxygen and high alkaline environments.) For more information, click here.

What does this mean? The short answer: When we exercise, our bodies have more oxygen. When we eat less sugar, they become more alkaline. (Hint: Read package labels. Sugar is hidden everywhere and goes by at least 40 different names.)

Why isn’t this front-page news?

Do you BELIEVE there is a solution to the skyrocketing costs of health care in the United States?

Do you BELIEVE the’ powers that be’ really want to find a cure for cancer or any other diseases for that matter? If so, why haven’t they?

Toastmasters speech I take this medication for because eating healthy and exercising are too much trouble

I listened to a webinar with several Functional Medicine specialist last week on the topic of cancer and alternative treatments last week. The following statistics were revealed: 

Healthcare is a 3 Trillion dollar/year business.

Drug care is a 400 billion dollar/year business.

Cancer is a 200 billion dollar/year business.

I don’t know about you, but if any business is making this kind of money, it is NOT going to be in THEIR best interest to find a cure for any diseases. If they did, they would go out of business.

Would you like to put them out of business and start keeping your hard-earned dollars? You have it in your power to reduce the cost of your own healthcare by at least 50% or more.

Do you BELIEVE you have control over your ability to help your body heal itself? The World Health Organization says that we have control over 50% of the causes.

The World Health Organization has stated that lifestyle and what you eat causes cancer. To read the article, click here.  

The cost of healthcare, insurance, prescription drugs, and the growing epidemic of cancer diagnosis, diabetes, and heart disease rates have been increasing every year. Why do you believe this is happening?

I read the following article this morning about the financial crises that is being caused by medical expenses. If you would like to read it, click here.

This article states that at almost a third of the population in the United States that HAS medical insurance is having trouble paying for their medical expenses.

Would you like some help reducing these costs? I have learned only 5% of the population is capable of making lasting lifestyle changes on their own.

I BELIEVE I CAN help you make lasting lifestyle changes for you that could help put more of your money back in your own pockets.

Western medicine as we know it has only been around for a little over 100 years. Our life expectancy has increased, but our quality of life has decreased. This is especially true during the last 20 years.

I had never heard of the term: Functional Medicine until November of 2016 when I developed a severe case of eczema. I learned that the primary focus of: Functional Medicine is to find the cause of a disease, not just mask the symptoms with a drug (although in some cases-drugs are effective for short-term use to get chronic symptoms under control.)

I like the fact that the word functional includes the word: Fun. Don’t you? It certainly beats the alternatives we have been discussing.

I am pretty sure that NOBODY ever received a cancer diagnosis because they didn’t take enough prescription or over-the-counter drugs!

During my studies at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, I learned that at least 70% of ALL diseases ARE preventable by making lasting lifestyle changes that work for us.

I learned from one Functional Medicine doctor that there are seven foods that we can eat every day that will decrease our risk of getting cancer by at least 90%.

Would you like to know what they are? Click here to schedule your free consultation and I will share them with you along with some simple, personalized recipes.

I learned that there are no one-size-fits-all-solutions. I learned that diet and exercise are only a couple of small pieces in this very large of the puzzle we call life. 

Bad things that happen to us lead us to better things shared by Carrie Smith Aug 22 2016

I love the book: Radical Remission by Kelly A. Turner. Her book focuses on Stage 4 cancer patients who survived and what they have in common. Their doctors had exhausted all of their conventional approaches and had given them a death sentence. They found alternatives. She shares nine of the approaches all of them used. 

Kelly A. Turner’s book inspired me to write: 47 Shades of Pink-Improve your quality of life-Reduce your risk of developing breast cancer. My book is a mini-memoir and self-help book. Every chapter includes a description of the tip, my story, and some simple, actionable steps you can take as you begin your journey to living your life…in the pink!

If you would like to purchase the soft-cover edition of: 47 Shades of Pink, live in the continental United States, and would like to save the money on the cost of shipping, send an email to: try.onsomethingpink@gmail.com

I am going to end with my motto: I do NOT want to find a cure for cancer or any other diseases. I WANT to find ways to PREVENT it from happening in the first place!

I am passionate about helping YOU do everything in your power to PREVENT cancer and other diseases. I am passionate about helping you save money on the cost of YOUR healthcare.

Tip of the Day Tuesday: Stop Procrastinating!

Dear Sisters,

As I was Pondering what tip I could share today, I visited my favorite Place to meditate: The treadmill. We are old friends and at one time, my commitment to exercising regularly helped me lose 35 pounds in 9 months. I even succeeded in keeping it off for a few years-by Keeping up with my ‘regular visits.’ 

What does this have to do with the subject of: Stop Procrastinating? 

One of the primary purposes that I created this website was to help YOU become: Proactive in Preventing disease and Improve your over-all health and well-being. 

Most people (including myself) ARE lazy! We are searching for a ‘magic Pill’ that will help us stay healthy and not encounter any diseases that could end our lives Pre-maturely.

Doctors no long claim that chemo and radiation will cure the disease. They do say that if their patients survive for 5 years-that they are cured. I have read and heard too many stories about and from people who were pronounced: No evidence of disease when they completed cancer treatments and had survived for at least 5 years only to experience a recurrence shortly after they ‘thought they were cured.’

My theory AND opinion is that the treatments did NOT cure the disease. More than likely, the patients that were involved changed their life-style and once they experienced the 5 year mark, they returned to the habits that caused their disease to happen in the first place. 

I thought I was doing pretty well for a few years after my breast cancer diagnosis. Most of my alternative remedies were working, BUT I was still experiencing a ‘few Negative’ and lingering side-effects from ‘the Pill’ that I took to Prevent recurrence. 

I was Introduced to essential oils by a dear sister three and a half years ago. I thought they were expensive and that I could not afford them. I suffered for three years BEFORE I became Pro-active and started researching essential oils and their benefits. 

They have Improved my over-all health and well-being in a reasonably short period of time. They are Inexpensive when you factor in the fact that they have multiple uses: 

The essential oil that I flavor my water with, (I have been drinking A LOT more water because it tastes Incredible!),  I also use as a toner on my face. No harsh chemicals and it works BETTER than the brand I have been using for several years.

The essential oil that I use in coconut oil as a moisturizer has been around for thousands of years and was one of the gifts given to the baby Jesus. I feel confident that it is Improving my quality of life. 

The essential oil that I use as a pain-reliever, I also use to clean and disinfect my counter-tops. It is also the primary ingredient in the cleaning products from Young Living.

The same oil that purifies the air in my home, I also use to help me relax and manage my stress and Improve my well-being.

Magic pills do NOT exist and will NOT improve your quality of life in the long-run. 

When we Stop Procrastinating and do the things we need to do: Keep eating a plant-based diet, exercise, manage our stress and add a few alternative remedies, like essential oils will our health and well-being: Improve!

For those of you who are looking to save money and would like to try essential oils, Young Living is offering a 10% discount until: Thursday, June 30th. 

10% off YL Essential oils through June 30 2016

STOP PROCRASTINATING and perhaps, you will discover the same ‘missing Puzzle Piece’ that did to help you Improve your quality of life.

Enjoy your day!


Leadership: The Power of 3 and ESP

Dear Sister,

Since today is St Patrick’s Day and most people are celebrating by being at parades and getting drunk-which is something that I don’t do, I decided to share some ‘reflections’ on Leadership and the power of 3 and ESP. ESP is an acronym. I usually use: PINK as an acronym, but today I wanted to take a break from that because ESP seemed more appropriate for what I want to accomplish.Besides the clover has 3 petals and I believe it is a beautiful illustration of the number 3. It also speaks to my religious beliefs and represents the Holy Trinity: The Father. The Son and The Holy Ghost. Three separate personages and one common purpose.


When you are writing a speech for Toastmasters, it is recommended that you break down your speech into three smaller points that support your main idea. The motto for Toastmasters International is: Where Leaders Are Made.

The main idea for this post is: Leadership. E stands for: Example. S stands for Sincerity and P stands for Pattern. The Power of 3 supports the Leader and their main purpose. In the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, our organizations have 1 President and 2 counselor’s. All of them work together.

My husband and I started researching home-based businesses many years ago. We have been involved in a few businesses…most of them with negative consequences. We had determined that we would NEVER get involved with another one. That is about to change.

I have had a few health challenges-breast cancer being one of them. I have experienced side-effects from taking a drug and most of the time I have been able to manage the side-effects with alternative remedies which, for the most part, have worked.

A close friend of mine introduced me to an alternative remedy three year’s ago that was helping her with a health challenge that we have in common, but I discarded it. I thought it would be a ‘no-brainer’ to get involved with that particular company and the person who introduced me to that remedy. 

I did NOT want to join a company based on what was working for my friend especially when she was not actively building her business. She was not setting an Example that I wanted to follow.

Add to that, I decided to do some research on the company that she is involved with. I did NOT like what I found out from numerous objective sources. I DID find a company that has the same kinds of products and has a reputation for having integrity. I was immediately sold on that company.

The next thing I did was begin searching for a Leader to join. That Leader had to have a system in place for marketing their product that contained: E.S.P. The Leader that I choose to join had to set an Example and not just try to sell me a product or on the company. (I am already sold on the company.) I know what I am capable of doing and what I won’t do from prior experience.

The Leader had to be: Sincere-sincerely interested in me! The Leader had to provide me with resources that would help me duplicate what they are doing to build their business without going broke. Their story had to speak to my soul. I had to feel peace when I heard their message. (I watched one youtube video today that accomplished that). When I contacted that person, they responded to my message very quickly. They are currently looking for a mentor for me that lives closer to me than they do.

I have watched several youtube videos and visited dozens of blogs during the last two weeks and I had narrowed my search down to a couple of individuals that I thought would be good Leaders for me to follow. Both of them spoke to different parts of me, but neither one of them spoke entirely to me until today.

The Leader had to have a Pattern in place that would plant one idea in my head when they were finished with their presentation. That idea was: I CAN DO THIS! I CAN duplicate what that Leader IS doing! I am a big believer in the K-I-S philosophy: Keep It Simple. That is a topic for another time.

Some of you may know that I do counted cross-stitch. I am self-taught. Cross-stitch Patterns provide instructions as well as a list of materials that you need to complete a project. Most counted cross-stitch projects contain three steps on HOW TO complete them: Make an ‘X’ and out line the picture when you are done. The ‘X’s need to be uniform and going in the same direction. One diagonal stitch going left to right and then cross over with the other stitch right to left and then out-line when you are done. It is very easy to duplicate this pattern.

If you were to see the completed cross-stitch project above, you would probably think: I CAN’T DO THIS! But since I posted the smaller picture, you would probably think: I CAN DO THIS!

For that reason, I will share the bigger picture very soon along with the name of the company and the product that I am VERY impressed with. I still have one more assignment to complete BEFORE I sign on the dotted line. That my dear sisters IS the Power of 3 and E.S.P.!

Enjoy your evening!
