12 weeks ago Innate said, call your parents. My solemn dad picked up the phone, “Oh, hi Norm, you must have gotten your mom’s email”. “No dad, what’s up?” “Your mom has been diagnosed with cancer.” Yikes! My heart sank as I began to connect with the energy of the moment. For my dad, cancer is one of his biggest fears, it is his boogieman. Both his parents died from cancer and many others in our family. He considered mom much healthier than himself. She is the caregiver of the family and he was almost certain that she was going to outlive him. Considering her immortality was incredibly intimidating, “Norm, I don’t know if I can survive without her”.
"We are all immortal beings living in mortal bodies." Dr. John Demartini
Considering your own mortality and the mortality of your loved ones can be an incredibly powerful exercise. What would change in your life if you knew you only had one month to live? What would change in your life if you knew your friends and/or family only had one month to live?
Panic set in, then shame as my mind began racing with thoughts of not being enough. Then my Chiropractic philosophy kicked in and I reminded my dad what I have been sharing with them and others for years. Simple truths that can radically shift the cultural hypnosis about cancer that most live in.
1) We all have cancer cells in us, the difference between someone who has it develop into something life threatening is their immune system. We are our own best line of defence against cancer.
2) Cancer is not a noun, not an entity and it is not spelt with a capital “C”. It is a process, a process of dis-ease, one that develops over years.
3) The cancering process, like all dis-ease, is a wakeup call for change.
4) I then shared about the vitalistic mind body approach to the cancering process called German New Medicine, which has elegantly traced the source of dis-ease to internal conflicts.
5) Dr. Donald Epstein has stated the key ingredient to cancer survivors is their willingness to “fight” for their life (which initiates their immune system into fight mode).
As I stated this last piece to my dad I began to laugh. My mom is one of the most tenacious people I know. I was able to confidently reassure my father, “Dad, mom is a fighter, and she is a survivor, if there is anyone who can do this she can”. Overwhelmed my father was unable to hear my words.
The next day I talked with mom, she was in a fear spin, her mind envisioning the evil entity metastasizing throughout her body. She was in a very unresourced victim state. Who could blame her? If you ever find yourself in a traumatic situation remember to connect with source this is always the first step. I reinforced with her:
I am perfect divine manifestation there (for external world).
I am perfect divine manifestation here (for internal world).
I am perfect divine manifestation now (be present).
The next week was very challenging, my mom was being tested, tested and tested some more (1 set of CT scans, 2 sets of ultrasounds, mammograms, and blood work). I explained to mom about the morphogenic field of cancer. Everything has a morphogenic field; it is the field of energy and information associated with it. Cancer has a massive morphogenic field, it is a spin propelled by fear, the urgency of medical intervention (which leaves people racing from one appointment to another undergoing tests many of which are carcinogenic) and people’s own remorse of lost loved ones and their own fear of death.
German New Medicine sees lung cancer (which is the most common metastasis location or 2nd cancer) as a death fright. Often they see the diagnosis of cancer can cause such a death fright, which amplifies the cancering process.
Knowing my mom’s internal state was top priority I began pouring my love out to her, texting her many times a day and calling most days.
"Love and gratitude are the world’s two greatest healers." Dr. John Demartini
Through loving compassion I was able to relate to her through her emotional and mental spins and slowly start to steer her in a different direction. My mom’s spirit kicked in as she proclaimed “I am a survivor, I am going to do everything I can to beat this.” I encouraged her to listen to her Innate as Innate knew the way through this and each person’s path or healing is unique.
With her new orientation she was supported through a series of synchronicities that only God could orchestrate. In a matter of a few days she had compiled a team of leading experts all who were aligning in their message. We began to recognize self confidence was her core issue. She worked with practitioners of chiropractic, body talk, a TCM Doctor who specialized in homeopathy, reiki and a German New Medicine teacher. She began juicing, eliminated all alcohol and sugar, reduced inflammatory foods (gluten, dairy and others) and embraced an alkaline diet. We learned of the value of essential oils like frankincense and myrrh (maybe the Bible was on to something). She added other supplements like Immune 7, NanobacTX, Turmeric, Vit. D., Milk Thistle, Multigreens, probiotics. As well treated herself for parasites and candidiasis.
Healing cancer is a family affair. My father stepped forward, supporting by dropping essential oils on her lower back twice daily, doing most of the household chores and began loving her in ways previously he was unable to. My brother regained communication with me, which caused huge relief for both mom and myself. My family was stepping forward and stepping up; we were reorganizing as a family. Many others called regularly wishing her words of encouragement and expressing their love and gratitude, prayer groups were sending their healing vibes. My mom was absolutely awed by the generosity and good will of mankind. With each act of loving kindness my mom’s vitality grew stronger.
She did have hard times and bad days. Initially even with all of these positive actions her blood markers were rising and her belly was getting bigger. She met with her oncology specialist, who showed her on CT scan the tumor on her right ovary and pointed out other satellite colonies that had already taken form. He confirmed a diagnosis of Ovarian Cancer and marked it as stage 4. He offered her two options; do chemo, surgery and then a follow up series of chemo or surgery and then chemo but urged her with fear to do the chemo first. She declined the chemo as she innately was not in resonance with it and informed him that she would also be working with a number of allied practitioners. He rebutted her plans and firmly stated, “I will not have you as a patient if you are going to be working with all these people that I don’t trust.” She began looking for other surgeons, hoping to find one who was open to an integrated approach, turns out he was one of two oncology internal surgeons in Saskatchewan (the other was his associate). My mom felt trapped.
Her symptoms began to escalate. Her tummy ballooned, at one point she felt (and looked) 9 months pregnant. She noticed the direct correlation between conflict and her swelling, seeing changes happen within the hour of upset. At this point I went home for a visit. It was one of the most challenging times of my life. My mom was fighting for her life and it looked like she was losing the fight. I called on all my resources. God had been preparing me for this for many years. I used my chiropractic skills, offered bits of wisdom and most importantly loved her dearly. I left that weekend exhausted and uncertain of my mom’s future.
Over the next few weeks I energetically needed to step back. I had given a lot. At the same time mom was stepping up. Her confidence was growing; she had made it through the dark night, cleared out many skeletons in her closet. Dad and her were growing together as a couple. She paid attention to the things that brought her joy and made her laugh. As laughter is the best medicine. She started taking Frequensea. She began working with Dr. Furstenberg, a functional holistic practitioner- who used high dose of intravenous Vit. C. and naltrexone. She also immersed herself in a 9 part series called The Truth about Cancer.
(Did you know that 85% of oncologist would decline chemo for themselves and their family?)
She began feeling more and more confident when at a week before her surgery she began proclaiming that she had done it, she had healed herself. She began questioning whether she needed surgery or not. I suggested that on surgery date if she hit a traffic jam or that the surgeon was just truly unruly before the surgery to take it as a sign that she did not need the surgery.
The morning of her surgery her car would not start and when the surgeon met with her moments before the surgery and said, “Let’s go through the surgery procedure one more time.“ He informed mom that he was going to be leaving in a stint for the chemo. She replied that she would not be having the chemo. Again he replied with conflict informing her that she just didn’t understand that with all his training and experience he has learned to be pessimistic in situations like this. She looked him straight in the eye and said, “Sir you don’t understand, I have healed myself, when you open me up you will see I don’t have cancer anymore.”
During the surgery the surgeon drained 7 liters of ascitis (a fluid that accumulates through the cancering process), her ovaries and her belly button. When he called my dad post operation he humbly admitted “I have never seen anything like this, there is no cancer.”
Our body’s ability to heal itself is far greater than we have been lead to believe.
My mom’s recovery has been good. She is up and at ‘um, walking ¼ mile just days after her surgery. She met with Dr. Thurstenburg who was amazed with her success and asked “I am amazed, you had stage 4 ovarian cancer, and how did you do this?” She told him her story, of the various modalities and products she worked with and most importantly of working with Innate and of her family healing and coming together. He responded, “Oh, it sounds like you did a Ho’ oponopono.” (an ancient Hawaiian healing technique). Something my mom knew nothing about, many of you are smiling as you know Ho’ oponopono is something I have been teaching and working with for years.
I love you.
I am sorry.
I forgive you.
My mom’s healing herself (and our family) through the cancering process has been one of the most amazing experiences of my life.
Thank you God for your healing presence in our lives and to all those who have supported her healing. At first I saw it as a miracle, now I see as further proof of universal truth, when the body is aligned, surrounded by love and nourished with foundational wellness aspects like nutrition, exercise and laughter our bodies do what they are designed to do which is heal themselves.
It is as simple as that.
With loving admiration, from the bottom of my heart I thank you mom for stepping up and healing the “incurable”. You are an inspiration to us all. May your story act as a beacon of hope to those in their own healing crisis. What is possible for one is possible for all.

Navigating the Stream of Life
We are on a river of life.
Our job is to flow, gently down its stream, merrily on our way, living our dream.
We have the opportunity of floating merrily, merrily down a stream. If you look at any river system the majority of it's flow is gentle, especially a more mature river.
"but Dr. Norm this river is turbulent, it is not what I expected, it's not what I signed up for!"
First, check and see if you are the one putting boulders into your own stream. Are you creating interference in the flow of your life? Are you placing extra drama and challenges in a life that wants to flow smoothly? Are you adding extra twists and bends, dwelling on the negative or adding more into your life making it extra complicated? This is the first step….clear your own interference.
In nearly every river there are periods and segments where the flow is much quicker and more intense. Now what? There are periods of our lives where we go through more intense and sudden growth and are required to move more quickly. The same principles apply. Accept what is, partner with the flow of your life and apply yourself fully. Just like when riding a river during fast sections you are wise to paddle faster, match your rhythm to the rhythm of life and let the energy of life carry you.
There will be parts of the journey that may be uncomfortable and may not go the way we want them to and we are asked to ride out some turbulent times. This is all but guaranteed. Just like the river we do not get to tell life how to flow. How we deal with this is where we have choice. Are you someone who screams in resistance, blaming what is....or do you accept what is and partner with the flow.
This may be new for many of you as you are so used to paddling upstream and working against life. Just think how much energy this takes to resist the flow of a quick moving river trying to maintain the same as what we’ve been used to….as some would say to try and stay “balanced”. There will be time where the aligned flow is out of balance from what we have always known and experienced. This faster flow is going to feel different because it is different. Our first response may be to resist the change see it as wrong and look to preserve life back to the way it was before. However, the invitation again is to partner with the flow and things wants to happen emerge.
When things are a fast flow many feel like they have to think extra hard to figure it all out, get it right and control it. When the river is moving quickly often we are required to act faster than we can think. This requires us to connect and respond to Innate, to our intuition. Just like a baseball player that is able to sense the rotation of a baseball that is moving at him at 100 miles an hour, a feat that is simply impossible for the mind to comprehend. But innate is able to do it!
When your river is moving quickly and turbulent, enjoy the ride! Yippie we are gonna shoot some rapids! Paddle with the same intensity of the river, partner with it, apply yourself fully and listen to the quiet directions of innate. If you get bumped out of the boat, it’s all good; it’s part of the game of life! Get back into the boat, learn from your experiences and hook up to the river again.
Your Body.. Your Temple..
For thousands of years man has been turning to himself, his physical body, in an attempt to understand more of the divine nature that he is. This quest has been illustrated in art, spoken of in religious texts and found in mathematics with the Golden Ratio and the Fibonacci Sequence (patterns that are mathematically calculated and are also found repeated within the human body).
Leonardo da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man, is the most famous of this type of art depicting our divine nature, to which Leonardo says, "The outstretched arms and legs of a man form a square and a circle: the square corresponds to the solid physical cosmos, and the circle corresponds to the spiritual and eternal. Man spans the gap between these two worlds."
In religious texts, such as the Bible we find quotes such as, "Do you not know that your body is a Temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God?…. Therefore honor God with your body." (1 Corinthians 6:19-20 NIV).
My first introduction into sacred geometry and the spiritual dimensions of our physical body was through a story of Dr. Sue Brown, a chiropractic teacher of mine. Dr. Brown was mapping out the geometric patterns that she was noticing in the spine and human body during chiropractic adjustments in which the body’s innate wisdom was adapting to, integrating, and evolving through various energetic patterns. During an airplane flight home, her neighboring passenger eagerly noticed the geometry she was working on. To Dr. Brown’s surprise, she found out that day that the detailed patterns that she was uncovering matched perfectly to the Tree of Life, which according to the teaching of the Kabalah (the ancient book of Jewish mysticism) is considered to be the path on which spirit descended to become man and the path which man will travel to reconnect with spirit.
You may be thinking, “Hey I thought you were just about fixing my back and helping my pain go away”. Interestingly, originally chiropractic was never about pain or back aches. The developer of chiropractic, D.D. Palmer, stated, “The purpose of the chiropractic adjustment is to reunite man the physical with man the spiritual, so that the finite may know itself as the infinite.” The sole purpose of the adjustment is to align your spine with the divine so the divine can be maximally expressed through you. Growth, healing, wellbeing, spiritual evolution, and even a reduction of back pain is all a by-product of you being in alignment.
“Spirituality does not mean that it has anything to do with religion. It has to do only with the development and refinement of the nervous system and the accompanying rise in the level of consciousness.” ~ Itzhak Bentov
How Far Are You Willing To Travel?
Imagine for a moment that you’ve just received some important news….you have a serious, life threatening disease. Your medical doctor informs you that, luckily, there is a new, very special treatment, with a very special gadget, done by a very special specialist, that is just what you need. The bad news is that this very special treatment is only offered miles away in a far off, foreign land. To receive the special treatment you are going to have to fly there on a very large jet, for a very long time. But, once you get there you will be able to get the special treatment for your specific condition. Gulp. This is not good news! But, thankfully, there is a treatment. “Thank heaven there is someone who can treat my special disease,” you remark. The question is, “How far are you willing to travel?”
“You’ll either invest in your health now or pay for illness later.”
Now, imagine for a moment that you’ve received some other important news…you have a serious, life causing power inside of you. This is not new news, but it took one wholistic chiropractor to remind you of this very special power within. Your chiropractor further explained to you that this special power is the same special power that resides in all things and has been with us since the beginning of time. It is the same special power that created the crowning magnificence that you have become today, out of just one cell!
It is this special power that heals your finger when you have a cut, grows your hair and digests your food. The bad news is that this very special power is a special power that most people have forgotten about and have become disconnected from. Furthermore, this very special power has been stored in a very specific place that few even think to go to. Your chiropractor is here to remind you and to help you reconnect to this very special power that lives inside you, a place where few think to go to. The more you look there and the more you reconnect to this very special power, the more you can live in trust, trusting this very special power’s wisdom and guidance.
“But it has to be more difficult than that,” you remark. He assures you,”your ability to heal yourself is far greater than you have been lead to believe.”
Again I ask the question, “How far are you willing to travel?” Are you willing to make the journey inside and tune in and trust this very special power?
To travel to the far reaches of the globe and to travel to the inner dimensions of self can each be quite a journey, and both bear their own fruit. Your life is your own to travel and I invite you to remember that there is a power within that innately operates for and with you. How far you travel in partnership with this intelligence is up to you?
But he will accomplish nothing until he finds himself with his innate. When he has his great objective, life will be an open book before him. Nothing can hold him back; he will take his place amongst the masters of men.
