Dear Difference Maker,
While my birth mother passed four years ago with another form of cancer, breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in women. At last count, I found that October has 43 ‘Awareness Month’ Campaigns going on, one of which Breast Cancer Awareness.
Did you know Statistics show that ….
About 1 in 8 U.S. women (about 12%) will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime.
In 2015, an estimated 231,840 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in women in the U.S., along with 60,290 new cases of non-invasive (in situ) breast cancer.
About 2,350 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in men in 2015. A man’s lifetime risk of breast cancer is about 1 in 1,000.
So what can a person do to BE as healthy as possible in this world of ours?

Own Your Life: Your Health is Your First Wealth
Owning Your Life initially means to take your inherent power back. Stop giving your car keys away to others to drive your car. It’s YOUR car! Take the wheel back and drive it!
This does not afford you the huge health expense of being angry and resentful about how difficult other’s have been or have taken advantage of you over the years. Owning your life means deciding to take responsibility for how you are feeling, what you are thinking and OWNING that you have not taken all the steps you could be taking to learn better effective ways to be in the world peacefully which has – up to this point – caused harm to yourself and to others.
All of the Awareness Campaigns, while initially about finding the funding to find cures, are also about making a personal decision to learn new ways of stepping up to life’s offerings.
The Fall signals a time for new learning. New learning brings change and release. As the leaves are turning and letting go, we can also release old-worn out ways of being and acting in the world. We have the power 24/7/365 to choose to learn new ways on how we can see and understand people and situations differently.
We can also try new things like beverages that make life easier on our body’s ability to stay healthy because everything we do is accumulative.
One of the things I knew I needed to address was sugar cravings and eating for energy when I turned about 44, approximately 18 years ago. The food plan that had worked very well for me for 20 years at that point, no longer did. I tried harder at what was not working, year after year instead of making the time to learn something new, try out new approaches and give myself a full year to stick with it.
Raising my family and allowing myself to be constantly driven in my business to produce, produce, produce, I put my health last and it’s been accumulative. These past several years, however, I decided to just own my life! I fully committed to immersing myself in new learning about what’s healthy and what’s not for my body type. I have been finding surprising new, easy and enjoyable ways to change up what I eat and drink, which has brought me much relief.
I’m happy report that my desire for sweets and over eating for energy has shifted and I am completely off of all medications including estrogen. My ability to make these changes has been at least 70% a result from drinking Energy+Mind Coffee every day.
Over the upcoming weeks and months, I intend to share with you the things I tried that have brought me tremendous mental, emotional and physical relief that is directly impacting how I manage my business.
The first step to Own Your Life is putting yourself in the position to experience resilient, radiant health, begins in your brain! Learning something new – trying something new – can be simple, easy and effective.
How Coffee Loves Us Back
We all know that green tea and cocoa both have mega health benefits but did you know that over the past few years coffee has been getting some negative press? But what if that was only one side of the story? What if, as with other things the swing of mass media and short sighted research got wrong? For example the newest research on low fat diets has revealed that it has actually made our society fatter not thinner over the past 35 years!
For example 30 years ago eggs were bad for you now they are one of your best sources of nutrition along with good fats. If this is news to you, then I highly recommend you research healthy fats and why they are so important to your health.
You don’t have to wait for your doctor to prescribe coffee to you in order for you to enjoy drinking it. I wasn’t a coffee drinker but I am now largely because of how well I feel mentally, physically, spiritually and emotionally now that I do.
Here’s what Harvard Study reveals about all of the benefits of coffee:
Coffee WITH Additional Benefits …
Before jumping on the big pharma, antidepressant band wagon or taking handfuls of supplements that you don’t even know if they are synergistic together or not, you could try two easy nutritional health drinks such as our Energy+Mind Coffee and FocusFusion Cocoa that have the benefits of two additional brain supportive herbs built right in: gotu kola and bacopa monnieri.
Unlike other blends our Energy+Mind Coffee and FocusFusion Cocoa are both infused with a potent blend of gotu kola and bacopa monnieri herbal extracts to provide maximum health benefits. People all over the world are raving about how they feel after drinking either one or both of these beverages regularly!
Bacopa Monnieri (also called Brahmi or Water Hyssop) is an Ayurvedic herb with a long and proven history of health benefits. It is said to enhance cognitive ability and is used to consecrate newborns in India to “open the gateway of intelligence.” Laboratory studies show it may improve memory and intellectual activity and it is also a powerful antioxidant which helps our bodies neutralize free radicals. Bacopa can also have a positive effect on anxiety.
Gotu Kola is a type of parsley and is a staple of Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine which use Gotu Kola to help heal skin conditions, treat asthma, fever, stomach ulcers and provide mental stimulation. Scientific and medical studies also suggest Gotu Kola can help boost the memory and has a positive effect on anxiety and depression.
Because it’s Breast Cancer Awareness month, here are just a few of the many coming in daily that apply directly to improvements in health related experiences with our Energy+Mind Coffee:
Real People Real Results!
Kimberly fought breast cancer and won, now this survivor has won the battle in taking her life back thanks in large part to adding Energy+Mind Coffee to her day …
“Before I began drinking Energy+Mind Coffee, I hoped it would help me to become healthier, and to feel somewhat like myself again. However, I never fathomed the results I would get AND in such a quick amount of time. I am a breast cancer survivor; I have had two surgeries and a round of radiation, but I have been cancer free for two years.
The problems really began with the radiation. I suffered so much fatigue that I couldn’t get out of bed. I also developed digestive issues and severe anemia. I was a mess!! I had to go back to work regardless of how I felt, so I did. I would drag myself to work, and at the end of my day, I would be on the couch as soon I got home. I wasn’t able to be the mom that I wanted to be. So, I started researching super foods, and healing herbs.
My daughter’s pitching coach keep sending home these “little packets” of coffee and telling me to try it. So I did. I realized that I felt better. Through her persistence to help me, I learned about all of the herbs that were in Energy+Mind Coffee.
I knew about natural supplementation, because I had been educating myself on herbs and foods used to nourish the body. I was so excited I was feeling better, I became a preferred customer soon thereafter.
I have been drinking Energy+Mind Coffee ever since. I feel amazing. I have myself back. My energy is back, I am incredibly happy, not to mention that I am off the prescription meds the doctors had prescribed because they felt the fatigue was due to low serotonin levels.
AND I don’t take heavy-duty prescription pain meds everyday which I have had to take for years because of back damage and chronic pain. I told you…I was a hot mess!
It is not an understatement when I say Energy+Mind Coffee has changed my life…it has given it back to me. I have 80% less back pain; 75% improved digestive issues; I have 100% improved mood and happiness; and 100% increased energy.
I also had my blood pressure checked, and it is down; all of which is documented. It has never been high; it usually ran 120 to 130 over 80; now it is 100/70. It hasn’t been that low since I was 25 and taught aerobics.” -Kimberly B.
Changing lives, saving lives and so much more… isn’t it time you add Energy+Mind Coffee to your life?
“Well my story begins in April of 2011 when I was diagnosed with breast cancer. Fast forward two years I have been through 4 surgeries, 8 rounds of chemo and 25 rounds of radiation and now on hormone therapy for 5 years.
Breast cancer treatment gives you an extra kick in the bum because unlike other cancer, this treatment actually makes most women gain weight.
So with the treatment, physical limitations and surgeries, I gained 45 lbs. Then the hormone therapy that follows also causes weight gain, fatigue, bone pain, to name a few, so as you can imagine, it has been extremely difficult to lose the weight and keep it off. I’m exhausted all the time. I also lost my job for going on medical leave and was depressed and tired all the time.
So my friend Ti and Lucy talked to me about Energy+Mind Coffee. I was nervous about trying it because I haven’t been able to drink coffee since Chemo. It’s too acidic. But decided to try it anyway. The energy is amazing and it doesn’t upset my stomach. I’ve been able to start training and have in 3 weeks I have lost 5.5 lbs and 1.6 inches on my waist. My energy level is back to what it was pre-cancer. I loved it so much I became share it with my friends when they ask what I’m doing differently. Thank you Energy+Mind Coffee for giving me my life back.” ~Cindy G.
Nedy is not only a nurse, she’s a SURVIVOR, and she’ll never be a VICTIM, taking an active and perhaps unusual route to alleviate her pain…drinking Energy+Mind Coffee. Some stories you have to read to believe, Nurse Nedy’s journey is no exception. Check it out…
“I was diagnosed with bilateral breast cancer in February 2010. I had multiple surgeries, radiation therapy and I have to take an aromatase inhibitor for five years.
After I started taking this medication, I started having chronic muscle pain and joint pain, fatigue, tenderness, numbing and tingling of my fingers.
My oncologist switched me from one drug to another, but the result is the same. I have no choice but to take this medicine to reduce the risk of reoccurrence.
I was referred to a Physiatrist to help manage my pain. I was doing physical and occupational therapy for a few months, but they were ineffective.
There came a point where I couldn’t do anything without hurting. Every movement was a struggle…even turning in bed, getting out of bed, going up and down the stairs, getting in and out of the car. I can’t even open a bottle of water, let alone sleep at night. I had to stop working because of all these symptoms.
I tried Tylenol extra strength, Capsaicin topical ointment, Voltaren gel and a special cream that has to be compounded at the direction of my physician.
Nothing worked. So my doctor put me on Cymbalta – started on a lower dose until I reached the maximum dose. Pain did not disappear so he added Lyrica to my treatment – same thing – started on a lower dose until I reached the maximum dose. Pain was lessened, but I felt drowsy all the time, can’t do anything. In short, I have no life.
Tried acupuncture 2-3 times a week, didn’t help. Then I discovered Energy+Mind Coffee (March 1014), thanks in part to my cousin. I started drinking it every day, and I noticed that I was moving more comfortably. So I began lowering the dose of my medications without telling my doctor, after all I’m a nurse anyway.
Then one day I decided not to take any more of those pills. I felt great, no pain, I’m more alive, started to do things that I haven’t done in four years. I’m still taking my cancer drug, but I’m pain free and get to do things that I want to do and enjoying life more.
Thanks to Javita, after four years of misery, I’m now a happy person and enjoying life to the fullest.” -Nurse Nedy
