If you are special to God, then those who are special to you are special to God and you can ask God to take care of them.

This is a really important story. Here are some things to remember. God does test us. When we are faced with something really hard, it shows what is really in our hearts. If God just gave us perfect lives, we would love Him for selfish reasons. We need to love God for who He really is. This is one big example. God did give up His only Son to be killed for us. God never wanted Issac to be killed.

He only wanted to see obedience in the heart of Abraham. We are to love others. That is the greatest commandment—love God, love others. In Islam for example, it is okay to kill sometimes.

Why would you serve a god that cares more about you not eating than not killing? Another example is how rats are sacred in Hinduism. In India it is forbidden to kill a rat, so people starve because the rats eat their crops.

Why would you serve a god who cares more about rats than you? Make sure you fill in at least one thing for each category and place some date to go with it.

If you get something wrong, learn from it. My blood sugar and vitamin D levels are normal; my cholesterol levels are close to where they need to be. As I look back now it is amazing that what I was eating was actually poisoning me. I started back walking about months ago. My first ride was about 8 miles and on mainly flat terrain—my average speed was 9.

This past Sunday I completed a 43 mile ride with a Then on June 23, , my husband bought me a backpack and sleeping bag. My first real hike with a backpack! It seemed as the older I got the harder it became to have energy, lose those last stubborn lbs or even see results from exercising even though I did times a week. To add to my confusion, I did not eat junk food and yet I still felt terrible, I had daily inner ear fullness which required allergy meds, strange tingling in my toes, had an under-active thyroid which required Synthroid daily, bowel issues which did not clear up AND I felt down mentally because of not understanding what was happening to my body!

Confused, hopeless, and feeling somewhat like a hypochondriac because of the many aches and random pains that popped up I wondered if they could even be resolved though I was still in my late thirties OR was it just a part of growing older??? After my first visit with Dr. Cabeca I started the detoxification program the very next day! AND my husband did the program with me as well! I literally began to notice a difference day 1 and by day 4 things were significantly different which kept me motivated.

As the weight came off and pains went away and energy level increased I was excited…yet the hardest part was the learning curve with this new way of thinking. For me it was totally worth it, and I did not cave. I have normal daily bowels, exercise more and longer because of increased energy level, AND mentally positive because of the results! Not only do we both feel better but we are also more educated on nutrition. We are very grateful for Dr. Cabeca and her team for their assistance as we continue to strive for optimal health!

I have more energy, and I was able to come off antidepressants slowly over time a few months ago. Keeping the weight off seems almost effortless.

One of the best changes is that I can now listen to what my body wants and needs to eat. It will tell me what I am hungry for and that is different than the consummate sugar cravings of long ago.

I have owned horses for the last 20 years or so, but I have not seriously ridden in the last I am pleased to say a few months ago I picked up my saddle and instead of just working with the horses I am an Equine Facilitated Psychotherapist I claimed a horse that had been given to me years ago and he has been waiting on me to pick up the reigns.

Dylan and I ride three days a week now. Dylan is young and impressive but has never seen the show ring. It is just wonderful to be back in the saddle again. I had no idea I had seat bones, but pounds will give you back all kinds of body parts.

Maybe a bigger change for me is in my attitude and perception about my role in the world altogether. I had a lot of detoxing to do. I was sustaining toxic relationships in business and holding onto things it was past time to let go of in my personal life. It has taken me some time to find which ones are to go and which ones deserve more time and attention, but I am quite pleased with the changes.

Over time, as the pounds were melting, whatever I was covering up with the layer of fat was coming to the surface. The difference this time is that I had a new found since of clarity that would allow me to deal with it, and deal with it I have. Since taking up the Dr. Cabeca lifestyle of Restorative Health, my mental and emotional clarity has been amazing. I am loving my work more than ever, and thrilled to be a part of a creative process engaged in making the world a better place with healthy people who are sharing the road on this journey with me.

Most profoundly, I am not afraid. My relationship with my husband is better than ever, but honestly, we are still working on it. We are still shedding belongings and reorganizing relationships, cutting expenses and putting our priorities in line, but by the time I hit the 1 year mark a little more than a month from now for sure our lives will be in much better shape than they have ever been.

Cabeca, I cannot thank you enough. You have truly healed me. I have not felt like I was free from cancer since December 7, , the day of my first diagnosis.

Today, I claim my health and I no longer look for or wait on it to come back. No one would ever believe I had ever been that sick. I try to make the world better because I am in. If not for you, I would not be in it long enough to make a difference. You got it, and I am very grateful to have the opportunity to work with someone that really sees and treats the whole person. The complicated history since then has been punctuated by some of the best medical minds at least in the Southeast, if not the county.

I have been very fortunate to have great doctors to treat what ailed me. I have survived because I was willing to go to whatever lengths necessary to get the best doctor possible and willing to take personal responsibility for what psychological, spiritual and physical healing was within my control in partnership with my doctor.

You were right, however, I still live waiting on the other shoe to drop. Grateful that I have had as long as I have to live as healthy as I have been, but living nonetheless, on a roulette wheel not knowing when my number would come up and cancer would come calling yet again.

The last 20 years has been a race. What can I get accomplished before time runs out. I have accomplished a lot in my field, in the communities I have lived in and in my life. I just got this sense that you know how to teach me to do that. I left your office today feeling like you knew what you were doing and that you knew me and what was going on in my body, mind and soul.

Thank you, for taking your journey and transforming it into healing for the rest of us on this path. The amount of time Dr. Cabeca spent with me during my office visit was so generous. I was uplifted mentally, physically and spiritually—filled with hope. Cabeca was the first person who gave me hope that it was possible. Thank you Dr Cabeca! You can see I am including everything I can to set you up for success!

I knew some information about many of the recommended changes nutrition, rest, exercise prior to boot camp. Then came boot camp — just what I needed! I started drinking Mighty Maca daily. Aches and pains were gone! With each week I gained confidence after the knowledge building sessions and knew that continued success would follow.

Even though boot camp ended some time ago, I am still following the guidelines and feeling great! Cabeca creates Boot Camp 2. I want to enroll today! Thanks for changing my health for life!
