Listen to this podcast to learn about what has helped Joe on his healing journey, and how a Healing Strong support group meeting can help you on your healing journey.
3:07 Cancer patients can extend their life expectancy by 40% by losing weight and getting exercise. My doctor said to take 10,000 steps a day.
4:43 Modern convenience has cocooned us into this electric shell. Just getting out into nature and getting your feet in the ground (grounding) makes a big difference.
6:04 I do fresh vegetable juices to get as much nutrition into my body.
6:33 When I was at the hospital waiting to have my first surgery, the Lord touched me and said I was going to be all right.
7:21 I want to produce results in people’s lives.
9:55 A Healing Strong group meeting is a conversation with a coursework curriculums that I pass out before the meeting. The last meeting we talked about forgiveness and touched on breathing techniques, and also a prayer.
11:58 I took the Certified Holistic Cancer Coaching course with Beat Cancer because I realized early on that I was in over my head. I had only been focusing on colon cancer and solid tumors for 2 1/2 years. I needed a groundwork and a baseline understanding to take people from square one to square two gently, with love, letting them know we can do this. It’s doable. It’s a good hands-on practical approach that if you heal the body sometimes the cancer goes away.
13:48 Our Healing Strong group meetings meet once a month, but I am open to more if someone needs more. I’m in the Bay City Michigan area.
14:50 You can find a group meeting at www.healingstrong.org where there is a map to look for meetings in your area. You can email or call me with questions. I am happy to help 24/7.
17:08 Healing Strong Is Bible-based but we are not a church and this is not an evangelical effort. We are trying to clear up confusion and help the people that are scared, alone and confused.
18:38 I hate it when someone’s eternity is screwed up. There’s a book called Cancer Can’t Kill You When You’re Already Dead by Dr. Kevin Connors. It’s a short read. It only took me one hour to get through, and it points out that this is not all there is. Eternity is real.
