The unexpected outcome of a life-threatening diagnosis…
There are moments in everyone’s life that are pivital; that have the power to inspire one to re-evaluate and look at life from an entirely different perspective. In April of 2011, Bonnie experienced one such moment that took her breath and knocked her into a flurry of uncertainty when she heard the words from her family doctor: “You have cancer.”
“Was I going to die?”, “Would I have to endure the debilitating effects of chemotherapy, radiation, and the other allopathic treatments?”, “Was the possibility of having children gone?” and “Would I lose my breasts and all of my hair?” These were all questions whirling through her mind as the news of this diagnosis began to set-in. Having lived a relatively healthy lifestyle — regular exercise, vegetarian diet, non-smoker — it was not only overwhelming, but an especially confusing situation for a young woman at the age of only 35.
How incredibly grateful Bonnie was that some dear friends handed her books on holistic healing with a recommendation to stay calm and to not make any decisions until having read them, despite the plea of urgency offered by the oncologist. What she discovered in those pages completely altered her perception of cancer and opened her mind and heart to a world of plant and energy medicine.
A deep desire emerged to find another way – a way that addressed the entire being, not just the physical. Bonnie embarked on a life-altering journey that included detoxing and rebuilding her body, clearing and settling her mind, as well as reconnecting with her inner guide and spirit. More than six years later, Bonnie is living life on purpose and leveraging what she has learned to serve others. In the fall of 2017, Bonnie finally heard the words she prayed so often to hear – that the cancer has “resolved”. She continues to undergo a very effective, yet gentle allopathic treatment but is otherwise experiencing thriving health and building a heart-centred business that serves her global family.
