We are about to launch our book, “Your Life Your Choice Let the Healing Begin A JOURNEY OF DIS-EASE TO EASE Healing Holistically of Pancreatic Cancer”, and we’d love for you to tell your family and friends about it!
It’s been almost six years since Kelly received her clean bill of health! Lately, we have gathered up her writings from when she had blogged her health journey back in 2018-2019. Here’s a sneak peek of the first two chapters.
When Your Life Flashes Before Your Eyes in a Flood Gate of Memories…
When your life flashes before your eyes in a flood gate of memories… This happens during the time of year between the months of August thru October, because they hold a lot of memories. Let me explain why.
For seven years, starting in August 2010, I was sick, having severe left-side pain that ripped into my gut. I choose all-natural routes of healing to cure whatever was going on deep inside my body, starting at that time in August. For the first five years I got by, struggling at times. But it finally came to the point where I needed serious help.
At year number five my health was at a critical point. I was malnourished, weak, pale, and having symptoms that were pages long. I was also depressed. Year number five was a turning point in my health. I got to the core issue, which exposed pancreatic cancer that I was starting to detox out of my body. I worked with multiple naturopathic therapists, chiropractors and doctors, and also did a gut healing program online, all before logging on with a brilliant clinician based in the United States who was a vital key to turning my health around.
It took a total of seven years to reverse my health. During all the years when I was sick, I had journaled on a daily basis, which helped me immensely in the healing process. I first thought I’d write a book. So, I did a lot more writing, which turned out to be for my own benefit. I chose not to publish those writings AS a book at the time. A few years later, after I healed, I started sharing my story in honest, open truth about my health, my life, my emotions, and my thoughts. I had my journals and writings to look back on.
My story is raw and personal. That’s about as real as it gets, right? My health has come full circle. As a woman who has nearly lost her life because of her ill health, I can’t say how thankful I am to have my health back, restored tenfold!
When I received my test results with a clean bill of pancreas health in September of 2016, it was not a surprise to me. I had already known in my heart of hearts that I was free of cancer—free of dis-ease and ready to move on with my life and my choices. So naturally when the dog days of August arrive each year, my life flashes before me in a flood gate of memories of starting this healing journey, August of 2010 through October 2016, and I smile really big knowing all the progress that was made in gaining back my health in all-natural ways.
My Ill Health Journey Begins
My left side hurts.
May/June 2010. I’d just graduated from high school. Life happened fast, and now I was 18 years old with no idea of what I wanted to do for a life work. Being uncertain about my future, thankfully that was okay with my family. Since I didn’t know what I wanted to do, I decided washing windows with my dad was a good fit, which I’d done during the summers’ past. I liked physical work, and washing windows was a very physically active job! This will give me time to figure out what I might want to do with my future, I thought.

July 2010. Our family was in the process of helping put together a benefit for a family friend who had cancer. It wasn’t until mid-July that I said out loud, “Mom, my left side hurts.” She looked at me immediately with concern shown in her eyes.
“Where does it hurt? Point to where it hurts, Kelly.” She inquired, searching my eyes in all seriousness. I shared with her the painful physical symptoms of gas, bloating, headaches, and a dull ache that was very severe at times, and diarrhea. We talked at length, deciding it was time to pay a visit to the medical doctor.
A week-and-a-half later, I attempted to not squirm in my chair while in the waiting room at the medical clinic with Mom next to me. My abdomen hurt and my head was pounding. My hands were clammy. It was time. A physicians’ assistant called my name. On the other side of the waiting-room door, she had me stand next to the measuring tape to get my height, 5′ 6″, then she motioned me to the scale and I stepped on it. She wrote down 157 pounds. I was the heaviest I’d ever been. My weight didn’t matter to me, as long as I felt well and healthy. And that’s why I was there at the medical center. I didn’t feel well OR healthy. I felt bloated, inflamed, and on fire.
Sitting down inside the examination room, getting asked many questions and telling her my symptoms, she jotted down notes in my file. She exited the room and the doctor came in and repeated her questions. Common procedure. I told the doctor, “I recently quit eating dairy and that seems to help some, but it doesn’t make all my symptoms go away.”
Mom spoke too, saying, “Kelly is the kid that never complains about pain. The fact that she has shared it is an obvious concern to us. Kelly came to me telling me about her pain. She could pinpoint it, but can’t reach into it.”
The doctor palpated my abdomen. At the end of being poked and prodded, she said, “I’m sure it’s just some IBS (irritable bowel syndrome). But let’s do some testing to make sure it’s nothing else in the meantime.”
At that point in my life, I hadn’t had much patience. IBS? Are you kidding me? Immediately feeling defensive, I calmed myself down and Mom gave me that I know you’re ticked off but don’t be a jerk look. I attempted to throw the doctor’s observation aside and focus on the conversation. My mind reeled.
I agreed to having blood drawn, give a urine sample, a test for West Nile disease and a few other diseases. “You should get your results via a phone call in a few days from my assistant,” the doctor had told us. I’d nodded my okay, completed the tasks asked for before leaving the clinic, then Mom and I walked outside into the fresh air, at last!
My stewing silence lasted about ten steps or less, until I was far enough from the building before blurting out, “Are you kidding me? IBS? That has NOTHING to do with my left side pain.” I was angry, steaming and starting to boil over. I had a headache bigger than what I went into the appointment with, my left side hurt, and yes… you could say I was a hot mess. I attempted to hold in my emotions, thoughts, and words that I wanted to say more of, and tried to be tough. I was on the verge of tears. By the time we got to the car, hot tears were trickling down my face as I angrily swat at them. And so, my journey begins…
