On the possibility of cures/managing conditions:
Even if ONE person gets better from or manages an illness well, that is cause for hope, because it shows that it is possible.
"There is no such thing as false hope. Hope makes you try. Hope makes you act. Even if you live one day longer, that is a success. If you have one more quality day, week, year than you would have had if you gave up, that is a success."
On stress as a cause of cancer (and stress tends to be related to NF):
"There is no worse form of stress than making a compromise against yourself."
"Most of the cancers I have seen were caused by the spouses and the relationships. People stay in a relationship because of what the neighbors would say or the church would say, or the children. And they are killing themselves because they do not allow themselves to live and thrive, because they subconsciously give themselves the command of self-destruction: I don't want to live like this any longer."
On Positive Thinking:
Don't just tell yourself everything is fine. People actually die sooner that way.
Instead, tell your body there is something serious going on, but you are going to address it properly. Then your system knows work is to be done.
"Positive thinking without positive action" is bad.
"We need to come back to a point where we take emotional responsibility for our lives."
"There is no false hope. Using positive thinking combined with positive action and doing whatever it takes."
"Even if you get another year, or another five years or ten years out of trying to get better, you still have hope for more quality of life or a larger lifespan."
"You control your brain and your brain controls everything."
On Stress Reduction:
"The best stress reduction is acknowledging who you really are."
Look at all the ways you have helped other people, all the thousands of small things like making people smile.
Instinct is God, or nature, or our soul talking to us.
Ask yourself, if I could change anything I wanted to, what would it be?
Contemplation is the most important element of the instinct-based medicine system.
The brain has no way of telling if something actually happened or if you are just imagining it - it feels the same to the brain.
Mainstream medical doctors study only pathology. They study only sickness and death. We study health and recovery.
On Believing in Yourself:
When you start believing in yourself again you are most of the way there.
Of course you can cure yourself of anything; you just haven't done it yet.
When you ask a child if they can play the piano, they say, of course I can play the piano, and what is a piano?
