Shedding Light on Nutraceuticals for Health Support with Bogdan Chugunov
Bogdan Chugunov is a 17-year gastric/stomach cancer survivor. He has traveled around the globe to find people who had minimal mortality rates due to cancer. He found that diet played a big part in the low rates, and he also discovered the amazing healing properties of beehive products. Bogdan incorporated nutraceuticals that help people get and stay healthy under Bee Magic and Health Republic brands. He personally tests and consumes all of his products in addition to sharing his experience and knowledge. Bogdan is not a medical doctor. ✨A few highlights from the show: 1. Nutraceuticals are food or dietary supplements that are believed to provide health benefits. 2. 100% of nutraceuticals can be absorbed into the body. Our bodies are not designed to consume pills or capsules. Therefore, only about 5-10% can be absorbed from consumption. 3.

Cancer and the Healthcare System Through the Eyes of a Daughter, Caregiver, and Patient Advocate with Melissa Mullamphy
Melissa Mullamphy is a patient advocate. She was also the caregiver for her mother, Constance Burns, who passed away from ovarian cancer. She has a message that needs to be heard and tips on making your healthcare experience and outcomes positive. Melissa wrote a memoir and self-help book called, Not in Vain, A Promise Kept. It is about her mom's battle with ovarian cancer 10 years ago. It is a real and raw account of what her mother and her family went through for nine months of her cancer journey that she ultimately lost. Melissa's vision and goal are to get the message out and help people find their voice and take better control of their health. ✨A few highlights from the show: 1. Ovarian cancer is known as the "silent killer" because the symptoms are often mistaken for other benign conditions, particularly the ones that affect the gastrointestinal system, or simply changes in a woman's body as she ages. 2. Always research hospitals, facilities, and doctors before becoming a patient. Read the reviews and ratings. Use them as a guide. 3. Befriend nurses. 📖Follow and learn more about Melissa at: http://www.melissamullamphy.com https://www.linkedin.com/in/melissa-mullamphy-83b5b28a/ https://www.kirkusreviews.com/book-reviews/melissa-mullamphy/not-in-vain-a-promise-kept/ 🦄About Me: In 2011, I was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma, out of the blue.

How to Share Acts of Love When Cancer Shows Up at Work and in Your Personal Life with Kim Hamer
How to Share Acts of Love When Cancer Shows Up at Work and in Your Personal Life with Kim Hamer
On April 16, 2009, Kim Hamer watched her 44-yr-old husband take his last breath. During his illness and after his death, she was amazed by the helpful ways their coworkers, bosses, friends, and family supported them. Kim started calling their kind actions "acts of love". After the death of her husband, Kim, an HR leader, noticed how little guidance leaders received when navigating cancer, health crisis, or the death of a team member. She knew their lack of knowledge negatively affected morale, employee engagement, and productivity. She set out to change that. Combining her personal experience with her professional knowledge and leadership skills, Kim launched her business to support leaders and coworkers when cancer (or any health crisis) affects a team member. ✨A few highlights from the show: When someone has cancer, do NOT say, "If you need anything let me know"!  WHY? What is anything? They have no idea what kind of help they need. They do not want to risk rejection. Instead, be specific about HOW you can help. 💖💖Follow and learn more about Kim at: Website: https://www.100actsoflove.com/ LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/kimthamer Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/100actsoflove/ Book: https://www.100actsoflove.com/shop 🦄About Me: In 2011, I was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma, out of the blue.

How Insight and Changing Our Signal Can Lead to Inner Peace and Healing
How Insight and Changing Our Signal Can Lead to Inner Peace and Healing
When Ann was 19, she woke one morning to find her mother dead in her bathroom. Twenty years later, the tears from that trauma were still just under the surface. Ann found a simple technique that helped her release these emotions - but she went further and can now put her awareness inside her body - and has changed the bone structure of her skull and grown ½ an inch at age 55. Ann has found that seeking out our truth, what we truly feel, and accepting those feelings, is the key to inner peace. A few highlights from the show: 1. Using EFT during and after cancer treatment can help release tension (dis-ease) in the body and find the true feelings one has about the diagnosis. 2. Our thoughts replay so we can release the energy around them and get them out of our minds. 3. Everything that we are experiencing is a result of our previous signal. The good thing is that our signal can be changed to attract different results.   4. Insight is bodywork. It is feeling where your awareness is. It allows you to get to know yourself on a deeper level.

Maren Mittal is a therapist and success coach and is most passionate about partnering with individuals to build a strong, authentic relationship with themselves, which is the foundation for building strong, authentic relationships with others. She is certified in Brainspotting, a progressive brain/body healing protocol, and The Daring WayTM, psychoeducation material based on the research of Dr. Brené Brown, two approaches that she can integrate with inner healing spiritual practices. Maren owns her private practice, Revealing Life Holistic Services, in Minnesota. In her free time, she enjoys being a mom to 2 young adults, golfing and traveling with her husband, being outdoors, and exploring new healthy recipes. A few highlights from the show: 1. Brainspotting locates points in the client’s visual field that help to access unprocessed trauma in the subcortical brain. 2. Brainspotting is a great tool to help people get unstuck after a cancer diagnosis. Especially after treatment is complete and the next phase of survivorship starts. This is a time when many people are left feeling like, "what's next" and abandoned. 3. The practice of Safe Conversations® integrates the three brain lobes and balances the two brain hemispheres making it possible for people to talk without criticism, listen without judgment, and connect beyond differences.

Healthcare Is a Matter of Education with Robert Yoho
Healthcare Is a Matter of Education with Robert Yoho
Robert Yoho calls himself a healthcare whistleblower. He practiced medicine in the United States and retired two years ago. He spent three decades as a cosmetic surgeon after a career as an emergency physician. This generalist training gave him perspective and allowed him to avoid favoring any medical specialty.  Robert has recently published two books, Butchered by Healthcare and Hormone Secrets. He has had little dealings with hospitals, Big Pharma, or insurance companies before he wrote his books. No one has ever considered him a "whale" prescriber or device implanter. A few highlights from the show: 1. There is now one pharmaceutical sales representative for every five doctors in the US. They call the big prescribers who like and use their drugs “whales.”  2. Per Robert. How to stay healthy: (a) change your diet to a higher fat diet,  (b) learn about and practice controlled fasting, (c) cut carbohydrates (simple sugars and corn sugar). 3. Having an advocate is key when navigating the healthcare system. It is ok to change your doctor if you are not feeling better. 4.

Thinking Outside the Box: Quantum Healing
Thinking Outside the Box: Quantum Healing
Tom Paladino is a Scalar Energy Researcher with over 25 years of experience developing healing techniques designed to help people all over the world to recover from pathogenic infections and experience true health and wellness.  The story begins back in Tom’s undergraduate days when he became inspired by his research into the work of various scientists. Exploring the discoveries and theories of Hieronymus, Moray, Priore, and Nikola Tesla, he was intrigued by the existence of an energy that is not part of the electromagnetic spectrum. Taking this as his inspiration, he dedicated himself to a course of independent study to better understand the possibilities of this unique energy with the ultimate aim of successfully harnessing it.  Tom realized that the scalar energy he was studying has been known to many cultures throughout the ages; it may be referred to as prana, chi, radiant energy, zero-point energy, qi, orgone, or eloptic energy. Encouraged by the timeless, all-pervading nature of this fundamental energy source, and after years of experimentation and modification, Tom developed a unique healing technique using scalar energy called Scalar Light that appears to have the ability to transmute pathogens quickly and painlessly. A few highlights from the show: 1. Scalar Light is a remote healing process, which is made possible by scalar energy instruments that harness and transmute instructive energy. 2. Tom only works with photographs. He does not work directly with people in any way. This process prevents barriers to entry. 3. Scalar Light disassembles and eradicates the molecular bonds to the DNA/RNA of over 400,000 species of harmful pathogens, heavy metals, and environmental chemicals. This frees the immune system to restore homeostasis. Follow and learn more about Tom and Scalar Light at: Scalar Light https://www.scalarlight.com/ 15-Day Free Trial  Scalar Light YouTube Channel  About Me: In 2011, I was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma, out of the blue.

Ten-Year-Old Caregiver and Chronic Oasis Creator
Ten-Year-Old Caregiver and Chronic Oasis Creator
Rosie Paulyk is the creator of Chronic Oasis - an online community where humans who love and care for chronically ill family members reinforce, remember, or redefine who we are. In her free time (yes, she has some!) she sings Jazz, writes sassy stories with her beloved/rad Mama S, and entertains her 17-year-old zany cat, Eric.  A few highlights from the show: 1. Many caregivers have to mold themselves into society rather than honor themselves and focus on being the best they can be for their loved humans and communities. 2. Rosie intentionally changes things physically to prepare for a "new" moment. For example, before this episode, she put on a jacket that served as a very physical reminder that something fresh and new was about to happen. She says this kind of visual reminder is really helpful for her to release what was going on a moment ago. 3. Uncertainty doesn't have to be viewed as scary. It can be exciting because it could be full of possibilities. 4. Chronic Oasis is specific to chronic illnesses and family caregivers. The Chronic Oasis community is free for caregivers. NOTE: According to a National Alliance for Caregiving and AARP survey, there are at least 3.4 million caregivers under the age of 18 nationwide. - American Heart Association News  Follow and learn more about Rosie and Chronic Oasis at: Rosie (https://www.instagram.com/rosiepaulyk/) Chronic Oasis - Officially launching January 1, 2022.

The Birth of a Wig Resource for Women of Color
The Birth of a Wig Resource for Women of Color
Dianne Austin is the co-founder and CEO of the startup, Coils to Locs, a direct to hospital distributor of high-quality coily, curly medical wigs for black women or any woman with highly textured hair. Coils to Locs is at the forefront of addressing an unrecognized health care disparity that impacts Black women or any women with highly textured hair experiencing chemotherapy-related hair loss: The lack of coily, curly wigs that are available at cancer centers in the U.S. that can be purchased with health insurance reimbursement. Dianne is a breast cancer survivor and diversity and inclusion expert turned community activist and entrepreneur. A few highlights from the show: 1. Dianne goes into detail about how integrative therapies such as acupuncture, yoga, art therapy, and massage were very helpful for her. Getting these therapies helped her realize how important self-care is even when the treatment stops and into survivorship. 2. Dianne scheduled people to sit with her while she received chemotherapy. That was a way for her to make sure that the people who wanted to support her had an opportunity to do that. It was also a way for her to accept their help and support. 3. Dianne was surprised by the physical changes and issues that occurred due to chemotherapy.  4. Dianne believes that it is okay to be vulnerable and to accept that she is not Superwoman. When you reach this point, you open yourself up to help.

How to Heal, Speak to Your Soul, and Keep Your Ego In Check with Lads Talk Health
How to Heal, Speak to Your Soul, and Keep Your Ego In Check with Lads Talk Health
James Mannion and Harry Thomas are the hosts of Lads Talk Health. They are two friends who worked with each other over 12 years ago.  They have always stayed in contact, and in 2020 they reconnected and now are loving life and helping others. Both of them are Life Coaches, and they do a lot of work with people who have terminal illnesses, relationship challenges, parenting, and child development. James and Harry are also on amazing spiritual journeys. They aim to have real conversations, talking about everything health! A few highlights from the show: 1. There is a lot of evidence now that suggests that most sicknesses, especially cancers, manifest from traumas you don't deal with and the energy you don't flush out. 2. Coaching allows people to be ok with themselves and their story, let go of the limiting beliefs they've built up, and make them aware of that. Then they can start focusing on the life they actually do deserve. 3. When you are having negative thoughts, address your ego and then look at your soul. 4. Your ego makes you sick.  You can learn more about Lads Talk Health, Harry, and James and connect with them at: FB: https://www.facebook.com/ladstalkhealth IG: @ladstalkhealth (https://www.instagram.com/ladstalkhealth/) YouTube: Lads Talk Health (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCyzEl28Ks2fnJCxils-UO8Q) Harry's IG: @harrythomascoaching (https://www.instagram.com/harrythomascoaching/) Harry's website: https://harrythomascoaching.com/ James' IG: @jamesmannioncoaching (https://www.instagram.com/jamesmannioncoaching/) James' YouTube: James Mannion Soul Coach (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC8x--8V11VsELb11_RwG5Ng) Listen, Rate, Review, Subscribe, Share, and Support 🔽 ⚓ Anchor: https://anchor.fm/navigatingcancertogether 🟢 Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/show/0o6LMv02knfCmjkk7OI2mx 🍎 Apple Podcasts: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/navigating-cancer-together/id1580570728?uo=4 💙 Google Podcasts: https://podcasts.google.com/feed/aHR0cHM6Ly9hbmNob3IuZm0vcy8xZGE3MDQ2NC9wb2RjYXN0L3Jzcw== Thanks for tuning in! #NavigatingCancerTOGETHER #podcast #LadsTalkHealth #JamesMannion #SoulCoach #HarryThomas #LifeCoach #Healing #SpeaktoYourSoul #BeRandomlyKind #Happiness #spiritual #emotionalsupport #cancer #cancersupport #cancerdoula #cancerpatients #cancerthrivers #cancersurvivors #caregivers #RealLifeCancerStories #sharetoheal #OnTheOtherSideCancerSupport Music: QuangerineCream by Noir Et Blanc Vie

Living & Looking Beyond 6 Months
Living & Looking Beyond 6 Months
Kelly U'Ren Moody was diagnosed with oral cancer, also called head and neck cancer about six and a half years ago. This news came shortly after she decided to make a big career change. After spending most of her career in finance, Kelly began attending school in 2013 to obtain her certification in health coaching.  Shortly after Kelly started pursuing a new career, she faced another life change, a cancer diagnosis! In 2016, Kelly learned that the cancer was terminal, and she had four to six months to live. Thankfully, she is still here with us, and some great things have been happening in her life. Today, Kelly shares her story with people all over the world to provide hope and help to those who are facing cancer. She is an example of how to face it head-on!   A few highlights: 1. There is a lot that goes on behind the scenes that people don't know about. When someone has cancer and they look ok on the outside, there is a lot that is going on inside. Kelly explains that there are days when she doesn't feel so well because she is still dealing with the side effects of treatment. One of those side effects is lymphedema. 2. I am here and I am doing the best that I can. Kelly shares that telling her mother this helped to carry her and it helped the rest of her family as well.  3. Kelly's favorite word is gratitude. She talks about how angry she was for quite some time. Now she reminds herself at the end of every day how much she has to be grateful for. She prays every night, and thanks God for her day!

Preparing for the End of Life with Leanne Nolan
Preparing for the End of Life with Leanne Nolan
Leanne is a former school teacher turned yoga instructor, death doula & educator as well as a plant medicine advocate. She believes that natural psychedelic plant medicines, and their synthetic relatives hold vast potential as tools for improving health and wellness, and she is especially interested in their benefits for end-of-life anxiety. A few highlights: 1. When I asked Leanne about the terms used for the kind of work that she does (i.e., death doula, end-of-life doula), she said that she prefers death doula because she doesn't like to hide the fact that we all do die and she doesn't want to have death be a word that we are afraid to say. 2. Death is change. 3. Many people have a fear of suffering, which can lead to a fear of dying. Plants or psychedelics help one to see that there is nothing to fear. You can connect with Leanne at: IG: @leannenolan_yoga (https://www.instagram.com/leannenolan_yoga/) Website: www.leannenolan.com Email: LeanneNolanDoula@gmail.com Below are some very important and helpful resources that Leanne would like for me to share with you.

How Breast Cancer Led to AABCA with Reona Berry
How Breast Cancer Led to AABCA with Reona Berry
Reona Berry is a founding member and current president of the African American Breast Cancer Alliance, Inc. (AABCA), established in 1990. Reona is a survivor of breast cancer, first in 1990 and then again in 2019.  Reona is committed to the mission of AABCA, disseminating information about breast cancer and supporting survivors in the African American community to help reduce the negative effects breast cancer has on African American/Black women, men, families, and communities.   Reona enjoys providing survivors connections and knowledge so they can come together to share their experiences, inspirational stories, and knowledge, empowering themselves and others in their cancer journey. A few highlights: 1. A survey revealed that many families in the Black or African American community did not talk about cancer. It was often called the "Big C". Reona pointed out that it is really the "Big Secret"! She expressed how important it is to talk about cancer in the family. Family history is important.  2. Feel the fear and do it anyway. 3. AABCA will be rolling out a fund campaign in October. Just in time for Breast Cancer Awareness month called, A Little Help, A Little Hope. More information will be coming soon. You can connect with Reona and learn more about AABCA at: FB: @AABCAInc.org (https://www.facebook.com/AABCAInc.org) Twitter: @AABCA_Mpls (https://twitter.com/AABCA_Mpls) Website: https://aabcainc.org/ Email: info@aabcainc.org Phone: (612) 462-6813 Listen, Subscribe, Share, and Support 🔽 ⚓ Anchor: https://anchor.fm/navigatingcancertogether 🟢 Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/show/0o6LMv02knfCmjkk7OI2mx 🍎 Apple Podcasts: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/navigating-cancer-together/id1580570728?uo=4 💙 Google Podcasts: https://podcasts.google.com/feed/aHR0cHM6Ly9hbmNob3IuZm0vcy8xZGE3MDQ2NC9wb2RjYXN0L3Jzcw== #NavigatingCancerTOGETHER #podcast #cancersupport #cancercare #cancerdoula #cancercommunity #cancerguidance #cancereducation #cancerresources #cancerpatients #cancerthrivers #cancersurvivors #caregivers #breastcancer #supportgroups #AABCA #AABCAsupportgroup #AfricanAmericanBreastCancerAlliance #ReonaBerry #RealLifeCancerStories Music: QuangerineCream by Noir Et Blanc Vie

A Cancer Entrepreneur with Cinde Dolphin
A Cancer Entrepreneur with Cinde Dolphin
Cinde Dolphin is a four-time cancer survivor who has been through nine surgeries that required post-surgical wound-care drains. The attending nurses provided safety pins for managing the drains, instructing her to use the pins to attach heavy drains to her clothing. Cinde engineered a more effective protocol that resulted in the invention of the KILI Medical Drain Carrier, a simple mesh apron that safely and comfortably suspends drains during recovery. The device is now a standard issue at several prestigious hospitals around the U.S. A few highlights: 1. Cancer patients should provide feedback to their medical teams. This is a way to be more engaged in the process of building solutions to medical challenges. Is there a void where the care isn't meeting your needs? 2. Caregivers can identify the needs of the patient and shortfalls in care. 3. The KILI Medical Drain Carrier's mesh design made it possible to wear it at all times. Even when bathing!   You can connect with Cinde and learn more about KILI Medical Drain Carrier at: FB: @KILICarrier (https://www.facebook.com/KILICarrier/) Twitter: @KiliCarrier (https://twitter.com/KiliCarrier) IG: @kilicarrier (https://www.instagram.com/kilicarrier/) LI: @kilimedicalcarrier (https://www.linkedin.com/company/kilimedicalcarrier) Website: www.medicaldraincarrier.com Email: cinde@medicaldraincarrier.com Listen, Subscribe, Share, and Support 🔽 ⚓ Anchor: https://anchor.fm/navigatingcancertogether 🟢 Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/show/0o6LMv02knfCmjkk7OI2mx 🍎 Apple Podcasts: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/navigating-cancer-together/id1580570728?uo=4 💙 Google Podcasts: https://podcasts.google.com/feed/aHR0cHM6Ly9hbmNob3IuZm0vcy8xZGE3MDQ2NC9wb2RjYXN0L3Jzcw== #NavigatingCancerTOGETHER #cancersupport #cancercare #cancerdoula #cancercommunity #cancerguidance #cancereducation #cancerresources #cancerpatients #cancerthrivers #cancersurvivors #caregivers #CancerEntrepreneur #KiliMedicalDrainCarrier #RealLifeCancerStories Music: QuangerineCream by Noir Et Blanc Vie
