Walking my Talk

This one is difficult for me.  But I am hoping it will help others.

When I was 40, the doctors removed a melanoma from my arm.  They basically told me I had 5 years to live.

Since then, I have read every Naturopathic book on how to heal yourself naturally.

The Gerson therapy, and Ann Wigmore, as well as Cherie Calbom are my go-to-resources for a healthy diet and lifestyle.

They recommend:                                                                                 organic fruits and vegetables

limiting EMF’s ( Electric Magnetic Frequencies) like cell phones, TV, computers from around your body.

Meditation and prayer for a stress free life

Eliminating toxic cleaning products like

Artificial fragrance

Hand sanitizers

Body Products with chemicals

Deodorants with Aluminum

Toothepaste with Flouride

Preservatives and Processed Foods

Alcohol and Caffeine

No meat _ especially factory farm products which would include dairy and eggs

They recomending adding:

Colon Therapy


Drinking pure water

Well, I’ve done fairly well with most of it, but I can’t say I’ve been perfect.  I am still alive!

At age 52, I was diagnosed with pre-diabetes and the doctor put me on metformin, until one day, I woke up on the floor, barely breathing.

I decided that I did not want prescription drugs in my life.  So I cranked up the discipline and started walking more, eliminated sugar.

I especially went to task clearing my pantry of preservatives, and never resorted to artificial sweeteners of any kind, or the low-fat Hype in advertising.

I was able to cure myself.  I’ve been drug free ever since.

Fast forward 10 years….

I think my metabolism stopped working somewhere along the way.

Or maybe just the stresses of life interfered.

The loss of loved-ones, trouble with the kids, financial woes, job loss, you name it, none of these helped me lose weight.

Somewhere along the road, I seemed to bury myself.

Nothing I tried seemed to help me lose weight and I don’t believe in diets, because you end up talking and thinking about food even more when on a diet.  At least, that’s what I observed watching my Mom and her sisters go on diet after diet for so many years and all they talked about was food!

I went to see a healer named “Braco”.  He gazes at the room full of people and transmits a powerful emanation of Source.  He doesn’t speak.  He only looks.

While I was there, I heard a voice in my head say ” You must excercise Sister”.

Okay, that was very logical and I was aware that I had not been exercising.  This was great advice.  We laughed about it later because it was so obvious!  That was about 7 years ago.

So, when I came to Hawaii, I decided to eliminate dairy from my diet after reading Marilu Henner’s “Total Health Makeover”.

She states that “cows become so contaminated that their milk can be near lethal brew”.

I immediately lost 5 lbs. and looked and felt less bloated.

Next, I decided to stop drinking coffee ~ Hey, I’m a Swede, and I love my coffee!!!  I was down to one cup per day, and could not get used to the Nepresso coffee or the french press.  It just didn’t tast good to me anymore.  So, I was able to stop without the usual headaches when detoxing from coffee.


I had arrived in Hawaii on February 15 and on February 24,25,and 26, I gazed with Braco, live streaming on the computer (for free) and you won’t believe what happened next.

While gazing with Braco, I was asking for help to figure out this weight issue that I’ve been dealing with.  I said I knew that I need to excercise more, but there has to be something else that can normalize my weight.  Please help.  And I gave it up to God.

I had just purchased a new swimsuit and it was the largest one in the store! Talk about a wakeup call!

On the second day, my daughter called and told me that she was not able to come home on Thursday as planned and would I mind filling in for her 2 hour, LomiLomi, Hot Rock Massage?  Say What?????

And that’s when the excitement began……

To Be Continued…..

Braco has another live gaze streaming on March 15,16,17.  He will be streaming from Croatia.  Check him out at Braco.me

    1. I love your comments, Q. My hope is that someone will find comfort in my words, and maybe just a bit of inspiration. We do need to talk about these things.


  2. Those moments that cause a gasp! in our heart… I had one of those when I got sober. Another just recently when I reached a weight I never thought I would reach. Trying to find balance in the scary information on food and food production in this country. Thank you for your telling your story, Lorna. I had no idea. You give me hope. Love you!
