Beware Fad Diet for Cancer Healing – Gwyneth Paltrow diet story

Because Grace is seeing so many cancer patients harming their health or risking their lives following extreme diets we decided to run this post about Gwyneth Paltrow. Please consider wisely before embracing any ‘extreme’ diet regimes or contact Grace at grace@gracegawler.com

Fad diet leaves Gwyneth Paltrow with brittle bones  –

* Star is suffering from osteopenia
* Precursor to brittle bone disease
* She was follower of macrobiotic diet

HOLLYWOOD star Gwyneth Paltrow was a pin-up for healthy living but her extreme dieting may have given her the bones of an 80-year-old woman.

The 37-year-old actress – who has followed a macrobiotic diet for 11 years and exercises up to three hours a day – has revealed that she has been diagnosed with osteopenia, an illness that can lead to the serious bone disease osteoporosis

Cancer death puts homeopathy in dock – balanced dialogue required

Australian paper’s headlines read…. Cancer death puts homeopathy in dock
Inquest hears of carers’ concerns
Dingle says wife unwilling to have surgery

The headlines discuss the Penelope Dingle inquest in Perth this last week – (see links to full articles and extracts of articles below)

This is a ‘hot’ topic with the potential to further polarise conventional and ‘alternate’ medicine. Mature dialogue is required so both polarities can see reason and become less entrenched. A glance around the internet reveals countless ‘skeptics’ blogs laced with the usual bias they purport to disdain.

Bridging the Gaps in Cancer Treatment

ABC FM Radio Gold Coast Interview – Nicole Dyer interviews Grace Gawler about her new Integrated cancer Solutions Trust. – by Pip Cornall

For 35 years Grace has combined conventional and complementary medicine to give her cancer patients the best possible outcomes. In this ABC radio interview she speaks about her history, the new charitable trust and the formation of a new integrated cancer solutions centre on the Gold Coast. The need for an integrated approach is illustrated by the controversial and tragic death of Penelope Dingle in Perth, which is receiving much publicity.  (it will be featured in detail in my next blog).

AUDIO INTERVIEW 10.33 MINUTES:

Cancer and Violence – How Fragile We Are – featuring Sting

By Pip Cornall

When Grace Gawler and I reconnected in 2007 via an article I had written in the Sentient Times, I was living in Ashland, Oregon. My article was called Restorative Justice – The New Hope for Revitalizing Community. The goal was to educate the community about the benefits of a’ restorative’ system rather than a ‘punitive’ one with an end towards reducing violence.

My work had been reducing gender based violence and among other things I helped boys in juvenile prisons. Grace had spent a lifetime coaching cancer patients to choose healing pathways that drew from the best of all medical systems – an integrative approach. Her initial success with a dying husband when she was in her early twenties received widespread press and they soon established a centre helping thousands of cancer patients.

I’ve often seen human violence as a cancer – when cells on the global body attack each other and ultimately – destroy the host. Working alongside Grace I witness the ‘punitive’ mentality playing out in cancer healing. A restorative approach to healing would be much kinder to body/mind and involve tried strategies such as ‘convalescence.’

I’ve seen tragic cases in juvenile prisons yet my work there has rewarded me with deep spiritual moments. It was not the boys who were a cancer on society but the mentality underpinning a society that glorified violence and other sordid dysfunctions as attributes of a ‘real man.’

Similarly cancer work is not for the faint-hearted. Sadly in past months we’ve known some lovely people who have succumbed to the disease. It always lands hard and one wishes it had been otherwise – that we’d been in a position to have more influence over decisions made.

When you’ve worked at the ‘coal face’ of cancer guidance and healing as Grace has for 35 years, you have a grasp of what will work for this certain patient and a wide toolbag of skills to draw upon. Disturbing is the trend for patients to take advice promoted by internet ‘sensations’ – many have little experience or appropriate qualifications for caring for and guiding large numbers of cancer patients. This is dangerous and constitutes medical fraud.

Happily our new Integrated Cancer Solutions trust will make it possible to assist more patients with trustworthy and proven integrative strategies.

My goal for this post would be that we stop rushing for a moment to remember how fragile life is and for us to collectively wake up. Perhaps when we stop hurting each other cancer as a disease will also disappear?

The song “Fragile’ by Sting addresses it elegantly and may help us to ‘slow down.’

ABC Compass Message Board – Debating Ian Gawler's Cancer Healing Story

During the three years I worked with Grace Gawler and her cancer patients I’ve already seen too many good people making poor choices based on misinformation and misreporting of the Ian Gawler Cancer Healing story. Truth is crucial for people whose lives hang in the balance. They must be able to  depend on accurate information. The least I can do is help Ian’s former wife Grace, tell it as she saw it – especially with regard to the role meditation and vegan diet played in his cure.

In the interest of truthful data so patients can make informed choices I offer the link to a discussion after Ian’s appearance on ABC TV- Compass _ A Good Life –

Cancer Survival – Grace Gawler

Written by Pip Cornall
A not for profit trust – a centre for integrated cancer solutions – is finally close to fruition. This will enable Grace Gawler to deliver quality care to greater numbers of cancer patients.

Healing has been a lifelong passion for Grace. In a career that began when she was 15, working after school at the local veterinary clinic, Grace was soon diagnosing and assisting in surgeries on animals with cancer.
Six years later, at the tender age of 21, while working as a vet nurse, she became full time care giver, motivator and researcher  for one of Australia’s more famous cancer recovery cases, Ian Gawler. She defied family, friends and medical authorities by believing Ian could recover.

This unshakable resolve is a mainstay of her work with patients today!
As it was with Ian Gawler, Grace’s work with cancer patients is legendary. Her greatest asset is an uncanny ability to deliver advice, guidance and top quality care across many healing modalities – true holistic medicine. This enables her to design treatment plans which draw on the best the world has to offer in the fields of complementary and conventional medicine.

Another vital service Grace provides is to dialogue with doctors, oncologists, radiologists and other specialists, co-coordinating diagnostics, testing and treatment. In some cases, when required, Grace will attend appointments with the patients to ask those complex questions and interpret the answers they often have little understanding of.

As a trained naturopath and herbal medicine specialist, Grace offers the best of nutritional and herbal medicine support but her work goes much further. The jewel in the crown for treating the ‘whole’ person and not just the disease is her skill in body-psychotherapy, which has culminated in a discipline of healing she teaches to professionals in the healing industry. This method of body psychotherapy enables her to deliver support across the mind/body, emotional-psychological, spiritual and energetic healing levels.

Because of her reputation for ‘getting the worst cases through,’ Grace attracts a lot of ‘end stage’ cancer patients who have trialled all manner of ‘nature cure’ regimes, including extreme diets. Unfortunately many of these arrive emaciated, with compromised immune systems, and riddled with fast spreading tumour loads. Ironically, she is then cast in the role of designing a treatment plan that brings them back into mainstream medicine while retaining proven elements of complementary medicine. In other words, Grace acts as a bridge between the two fields of medicine.

A common statement I hear from her clients is – “I wish I had found you years ago – I had no idea you had so much wide expertise enabling you to support and guide me through all aspects of cancer recovery. I feel comforted knowing you are there for me and that I have found the best help possible for my particular cancer situation.”

If you need Cancer Help – even if you live overseas (Skype consultations available)  Please contact Grace through her website www.gracegawlerinstitute .com or call (61) 7  5577 2997

Be sure to scan her website, blogs and watch the videos so you are well prepared before you speak to Grace
I’ve been Grace’s assistant for 3 years and continue to be astounded at the high quality of supportive care medicine she delivers for patients.

I wish you success on your exploration and recovery – Pip Cornall
