“At first, I had no clue what spiritual healing was all about. Although I was brought up in a very strict religious faith [Catholicism] I hadn’t been practicing it, so I was off on an adventure of my own. Little did I know that the spiritual healer was myself! I found that out after I had been diagnosed as cancer – free the following year, and most of my healing was just looking at and connecting with my inner self.” Bridget Dinsmore
Bridget Dinsmore heals from uterine cancer with diet changes and spiritual therapies
It was in 2002 when Bridget Dinsmore became concerned for her health as she began noticing some intermittent vaginal bleeding. She called her nurse who set up an appointment with her gynecologist and it was discovered upon further examination that she had uterine cancer. Bridget was told that she needed to have surgery, which would be followed by chemotherapy and radiation which her doctors said might give her an additional 5 years to live. Bridget felt this was not enough time, so she told her doctors that she wanted to take three months to become more in tune with her body to see if she could change that prognosis on her own.
Bridget had just finished reading Louise Hay’s book You Can Heal Your Life and was inspired by the author’s description of the body’s ability to self heal. Bridget decided to postpone any medical treatment for a few months so she could try what she calls “spiritual healing,” which among other things, included practicing guided imagery and Reiki therapy.
The first thing that Bridget looked at was how she was feeding her mind, body and spirit. Bridget was an avid reader so she went to the library to research how to heal her body. She says there really wasn’t a lot of books on healing cancer naturally back in 2002, so she read books that were about general healing instead. She credits the book 8 Weeks to Optimum Health: A Proven Program for Taking Full Advantage of Your Body’s Natural Healing Power for information on the importance of switching to an anti-inflammatory diet. She also found a nutritionist to help guide her.
The natural therapies that Bridgette used to heal from uterine cancer:
- Bridget says that, “cancer feeds on the acidity of the body.” So in order to change that acidity you must begin to alkalize yourself. This is done through the diet by eating leafy greens, fruits and vegetables.
- She also eliminated all dairy products and all meats.
- She also went outside frequently for fresh air and sunshine
- exercises that included walking and biking.
Bridget also made the decision not tell anyone other than her husband and her two children that she had cancer because she did not want to be exposed to the negativity or sympathy that often surrounds a diagnosis of cancer.
After 3 months on her new diet Bridget lost 50 lbs and found that her type 2 diabetes was gone, her rosacea had also cleared up, and the cancerous lining on her uterus had decreased by 50%. She then added a yoga routine at which time she would talk to the cancerous cells within her body, telling them that they weren’t welcome and that they needed to leave as she performed the various poses.
Bridget further embraced her spirituality by creating an altar of healing in her home which she would fill with trinkets that represented change and healing. She then came in contact with a holistic nurse who was also a Reiki Practitioner. She began to have healing sessions, and found them to be such a wonderful addition to her healing regimen that she made the decision to become a Reiki Master Teacher and Practitioner so that she could help facilitate healing in others.
