Judyth Reichenberg-Ullman, homeopath and naturopathic healer, in the prime of her health was diagnosed with breast cancer, and has shared her story from diagnosis to surgery in an elaborate and uplifting way.
My life was perfect, why did I get cancer
“It never occurred to me that I might be diagnosed with breast cancer. I had practiced yoga and meditation for decades, been blessed with a loving marriage, felt passionate about my life’s work as a naturopathic and homeopathic doctor, and lived in the breath-of-fresh-air Pacific Northwest. I ate a healthy, organic diet and exercised. My saga began when I was awakened in the middle of the night with excruciating pain in my left breast.”
Blessed to have so much love and prayers
Judyth went on to have surgery – a mastectomy (removal of the breast). Here she recounts the days before her surgery.
“One of the high points of my week before surgery was a terrific 50th birthday party where I was surrounded by loving friends. So many blessings. The party concluded with a healing circle in which I not only received prayers and more love, but friends even sang to me. The atmosphere was truly magical, one which I will never forget.”
Life after cancer surgery
“Sure, my body’s a bit rearranged but women who have gone through it assure me that in time I will forget about it entirely, although I do want to remember the personal lessons I learned about love, God, friends, and courage.”
“I am thankful in many ways for having had cancer. It has brought me much closer to friends who I have sometimes neglected due to what I thought were higher priorities. It has made me feel a closer bond than ever with Bob. I believe that I am much better able to understand what people go through who have cancer and other serious illnesses.”
Judyth and her husband practice homeopathy and naturopathy and run the website Healthy Homeopathy, and have authored many books on the subject. You can read their full story here.
