Guardians of Hope Awards


Our need-based financial awards have been designated to supporting individuals with chronic illness affected by the Camp Fire. The influx of applications we have been receiving from the local hospital and social workers indicate the gravity of need in Butte County. These heart-wrenching stories of the loss of shelter, resources for daily survival for populations already struggling with illness has mobilized us to take action! Because of the gifts made Guardians of Hope, we were able to disperse the first award to a retired Paradise Elementary school teacher this week (pictured.) After a stroke in 2015, she has been unable to continue working and is in immediate need of support to help make possible for her doctor appointments, fill prescriptions and replace accouterments after losing her home to the fire. We are honored to support her in these efforts and thank you for making it a profound difference!

The Cure

Cured. This is what every individual with a chronic illness wakes up and goes to bed striving to be. Over the course of my lifetime, no practitioner or doctor has ever discussed with me if I can reasonably look forward to a life without illness. Mostly, I believe now, the reason for this is because they were never able to figure out really what has been led to the degradation of my health in the first place. But this post isn’t about their past wrongs, it’s about now. Over the course of what was a very emotional appointment this weekend with my nutritionist, we talked about the present and the future. Honestly, Joshua is somebody that is so incredibly intelligent and intrinsically wise that I have a difficult time trying to describe him. I can say, however, when I dissolved into a tangent rant about humanity being cruel and how deeply this breaks me on a daily basis, he listened intently just as he always does, then validated my feelings. Our plan for the next month is to completely resolve any lingering parasitic beings and all remaining bacterial infections. 

Unfortunately, this isn’t going to be any easier than the past couple of months have been. He said there is no legitimate testing available at this point to conclusively assure us that the parasites and infections are gone. Is that the near future, I will be pursuing parasite testing from the most comprehensive analysis available. For now, we will be proceeding to a four week treatment that will give us undoubted reassurance of successful treatment after I make it through. We talked in great detail about the etiology of my problems, a conversation which I learned mind blowing information about health, the core of how disease starts and why so many of us have such a difficult role in healing. Wow. Just wow. Because my viral symptoms have re-emerged, he said this indicates the parasites are  almost completely, if not completely gone. When they are present, the viral infections are superseded and cannot gain the upper hand and demonstrate symptoms. In order to eradicate completely all of my viruses, we must first evict every parasite, egg, and larvae. We are nearly there.

 The best thing though, about this whole conversation is that he unequivocally believes I can be 100% healthy. 100%. Healthy. Cured. More beautiful words have never been spoken. And so, we keep going.
