Laura- I’m scared about going home tomorrow to do the therapy. It’s been very restful at the Gerson Clinic. Everything here is taken care of and now we will have to organize all this on our own. I’ve formed strong bonds with the other patients. When your life is at stake, it brings you closer together.
Recently I’ve noticed the things that so deeply mattered to me before just don’t seem so important…collecting antiques, having expensive clothing, a great haircut, a sexy bra, the perfect boots. The cancer has stripped me down to the basics and I’ve had to re-think what is important in my life.

Safe travels ladies – Laura, this next step may seem big, but take it one juice at a time. See the healthy you at the bottom of each glass. I lover your share about changing priorities – the coffee enemas seem to be scrubbing more than your liver. And speaking of liver, you are a liver – so live!!!
Wishing you a safe trip home and a soft and easy landing. You have a lot of people pulling for you Laura every day as you continue your recovery. One juice, one day at a time…. Sending you and Lucie many blessings and good good good vibrations!
I have no doubt that all sorts of feelings will wash over you –perhaps in gentle waves and sometimes heavier torrents. Hold yourself and hold one another. Acknowledge your feelings, embrace your vulnerability and then drink your juice and keep being, and keep swimming and riding the waves.
When sipping your juice, recognize that it is this care & love you show each cell of your body which allows healing. See it purifying. Know it to be renewing you. Be the juice as it trickles into every part of your body and becomes YOU. No fu fu logic. This is real communication. We often underestimate love, or the power of applied ethics, directed toward oneself.
