NORI Diet for Cancer : Why I Quit

Last year I wrote about my love for the NORI diet for cancer and today I am writing about it again because it was a very popular post and I occasionally have women going through breast cancer write to ask me about it. I am not an expert in any way, but I have had hormone receptive breast cancer for seven years, with metastasis for the last five. So I have tried a lot of different diets, as well as being on oestrogen production inhibitors, Zoladex and Kisquali, and Exemestane, which is similar to Tamoxifen. I am simply sharing my experience here.

What is the NORI Protocol?

To recap, The NORI Protocol is a therapeutic four-month vegan low protein diet with a lot of supplements and no alcohol. It needs to be done with a practitioner, who will look at monthly blood tests to see if levels, such as Vitamin D and magnesium, are high enough. The theory is that the diet starves the body of methionine, an amino acid that the body doesn’t produce itself, and this mimics the effects of fasting.

Did you stick to it?

I started the NORI in September 2019 and finished on January 9th of 2020. And I stuck to it almost 100%. I think there was only one occasion when I drank a cider and at the end, on a trip to Phuket, that I ate some rice. This was not allowed on the diet, except for the four days out after every ten when vegan methionine- containing foods were allowed. Like olives and starches besides potatoes.

What was the effect?

The diet had a really positive effect on the tumour marker in my blood tests. A healthy marker is considered below 50 and mine had always been less than 20. But after a few months on the NORI, it went to 6 and remained there even after I stopped and was eating a mostly vegan diet with a maximum of one alcoholic drink a week.

However, the tumour marker is not the whole story.  I had clear scans too in February and was thrilled that everything was so great. My reason behind wanting to do such a diet and then adopt veganism and little alcohol was because I wanted to go off the medication, and be cured for good.  So that eventually I could realise my dream of falling pregnant and having a baby.

Why did you do the NORI again?

Without going into all the details now, in July last year I ended up in hospital. The knots in my glutes that wouldn’t come out and pins and needles in my right leg, both of which had started in January, turned out to be more tumours. I started on the NORI as soon as I found out and once again it had the great effect on my blood tests, lowering the tumour marker straightaway.

Then I started the medication again and had radiotherapy for the tumours. Because of this, they went. But I continued to do the NORI as well, since it’s meant as a complementary therapy, even though it was extremely difficult to deprive myself when I was going through so much. I felt like I had Herculean will-power but it wasn’t very fun.

Why did you stop?

After a few months of the diet, I quit. The first time was because I started crying at the dinner table. Tears were running down my cheeks as I faced one more potato salad, while my parents were eating something regular and delicious. I put my head down so they wouldn’t see, but my dad asked if I was alright. “I hate this food!” I cried. “Well don’t eat it then,” he said. “Just eat what you want.”

So I did. I stopped the diet. And I was so elated to be able to eat a tuna sandwich again. Still, after paying so much for all the supplements, I thought to take them. Well, after vomiting fifty times, no exaggeration, I decided Life was trying to tell me to stop and so I did. That was in early September and I have been eating a regular diet since, with meat, dairy and alcohol, back on the medication since July, and have had increasingly low tumour markers and a recent clear scan since.

What else do you do?

Besides diet, I meditated for two hours a day in September and October but since then back to 30 minutes daily. I exercise a few times a week and mostly go swimming and walking at the beach once or twice a week. One thing I didn’t like about the NORI protocol and the particular course I did as part of it was the overload of exercises to accompany it, like the Wim Hof breathing method. After being in this for seven years, as I said, I have come to value simplicity and ease more than anything. Trying to do it all caused stress and confusion for me. But of course, it’s a journey.

What have you learned?

One thing I realised is that perhaps NORI is effective for cancer that doesn’t have to do with hormones. Because if oestrogen and progesterone stimulate my tumours, why would a diet affect it, if the diet doesn’t affect my hormones or not to the extent that is needed? Secondly, if there was one thing I’d definitely do differently, it would be to go on Zoladex and have the induced menopause when it was first recommended to me in 2014. That would have saved me a lot of metastasis perhaps. But maybe not. It was only with the addition of Kisquali in 2018 that the metastasis seemed to stop. In any case, Life has taught me many things in this time and I am extremely thankful for that.

Break-ups, Crisis & Daily Mishaps to FLOW & Happiness

My dear, last year someone broke up with me for being too “spiritual”. I know what he meant and that’s perfectly fine. I was actually really thankful that he was so clear and honest with me. But still, for a while, and with the events of last year, it rocked my confidence. When I started seeing a psych in September, I expressed that I didn’t know what to believe anymore. But as life and our sessions progressed, I came to realise that I actually do have many beliefs and practices that are helpful to myself and to others.

So that’s why I’ve started sharing them more. Each time there is some mishap or some difficult person or situation to deal with, I use my practices even more and give them to those who need help. I know of people going through really tough situations right now, like a dad who’s not been able to see his two young sons for a year because his ex has made false claims about him. I would like people who are going through stuff like that to know that it’s entirely possible to turn your life around, but you have to believe you can affect the outcome.

One thing to know about the law of attraction is that the vibration of the problem is not the same as that of the solution. When you’re sitting there trying to figure stuff out, the solution is elusive, but when you go for a walk or go do something else, it comes. Last week I had a really strange thing happen. My car registration was due and had been paid but the money returned to the bank account. I got on the phone to pay or figure out what was going on and while I was waiting, I heard some useful information on the recorded message and knew that I needed to go to The Department of Transport.

So off I went. It was a Wednesday afternoon and Perth was in a semi-lockdown so  all the social distancing procedures were in effect. I was a little stressed by this situation because I didn’t know what was going on and by the time I got to the counter, I could tell this was not the right lady to get. She kept telling me to stand back when I moved from my spot and then told me I had to take my car to the pits because the number plates had been cancelled. When I told her I still had the number plates she was confused and went to get advice. Meanwhile I stood on my spot, masked up, till she came back and told me to return with my number plates.

In a panic, I thought to go home and get back there that day, but there was a lot going on, school-hour traffic, and so I decided to return in the morning when I was fresh. So that is what I did. The problem was resolved easily and effortlessly, with my new energy, and I didn’t have to wait long. The lady said that it had been an error and I accepted that, knowing everything happens for a reason, including this. I actually ended up with a few added bonuses, including money saved.

Thinking that “It shouldn’t have happened” or how annoying it was that I had to run around when it was their fault would have been a waste of time and energy. It should have happened because it did. But I know when you’re going through something big or small, it can be hard to get to this place of peace and flow. That’s why I’ve created a couple of guides to help. Uplift is a transformational mini-guide to help anyone wanting to turn their life around,  get out of a slump and start going in an upwards direction or for those who would love some High Vibe Conversation starters. The other is Empower : a free guide to help process emotions, change thoughts and return to peace and happiness.

Lots of love,

Mireille xx

When Your World Crashes Down

The year is 2016 and I am working away in my coaching business, having just finished running the Healthy and Powerfully Feminine online course for the first time, and loving it! Sure there are many ways I could improve my organisational skills. I have a stack of papers beside my desk with all the ideas and projects I’m going to implement and a piece of paper posted to the pinup board above my desk listing out what I’m going to be doing each month. Then Life happens.

Literally, just as I finish the ebook on How To Be Queen of Your Love Life and upload it, the first migraine hits. It feels like having a plate smashed in my face. I stagger home from the cafe and spend the next month either lying in bed, trying to work up the courage to turn over, or making it out dosed up on pills to get different therapies to try and work out what is wrong. In between, when I do feel good, I try to post on instagram, to publicise my ebook and keep running my business, but each time I’m slapped back down by a killer migraine.

Eventually my friend Aleisha says to get an MRI and I do and find out I have a 6cm tumour in my head pushing the whole brain over, causing the migraines. Well, you may know the rest. I have emergency brain surgery two days later, spend a week in the hospital and eight months recovering. The behind the scenes, I will be sharing in my next books. The thing is that after a few months (a few weeks?), I tried to carry on as usual, posting on instagram and then having the great idea (sarcasm) to run a Body Love workshop. Only looking back could I see that I wasn’t ready for it. But at the time, I tried to carry on as usual. Then I accidentally deleted all my YouTube videos by “mistake” one day and was so distraught that I finally gave up.

That was when the journey to wellness really began. It was awful also and  I went through many months of suffering and even longer to fully come to terms with the repercussions, but ultimately I am happier and better. Even though I felt happy and good before. Right now there is a lot of this going on, worlds coming crashing down, and I’m writing this to say that it does get better. This midlife crisis really is for our highest good. The Great Awakening.

What if the feminine is the way?

Friend, the feminine is a topic that I have not written about for five years or so. I had the big brain surgery, the breast cancer had metastasised, and for a long while I wondered if I was wrong and had been mistaken in my beliefs when, actually, She was taking me deeper.

The way, as written by the ancient Chinese philosopher Lao Tsu, is living in harmony with nature, in the flow, where nothing is rushed but all is accomplished. The feminine is flow. The feminine is nature. We all have a masculine and feminine side, like the yin yang symbol. The masculine is linear and one of doing, The feminine is one of being. The ebb and flow. And we, through our illnesses and economics and drama, are being invited to rest. How can we do less? That’s the point we have all come to. Isn’t it?

Two weeks ago I came across this video and it made me realise that the steamrolling of my life was the Divine Feminine at play. The feminine is about slowing down and being here now. The feminine is fun and enjoyment. But, just like the Hindu Goddess Kali, She will destroy in order to create again. Just let go. Listen to your heart. What do you love? What is it saying? It is safe to rest. The feminine is the darkness. Can you sit in it? The feminine is intuition.  The body. Love it. Sleep. Listen in.

What if going slowly is the way?

Friend, the year is 2011 and I am working three days a week as an English as a second language teacher, teaching the Cambridge Advanced Exam course. On my four days off, including the weekends, I am getting up by 7am to write for 2-3 hours, working on Wonderlust. And apart from this I’m being a domestic goddess, taking care of the house, making some art to hang up, taking a class, learning German (or learning French when I’m supposed to be learning German), hanging out with my husband and riding my bike around town. I have read Slow and I am living it.

Life is good. Life is meant to be good. Last week I had a realisation that I had been filling my time too much and not allowing it to be easy again. I had been busy and keeping myself out of alignment with this. So I slowed down again, did the minimum, remembered what was absolutely essential and did only this. Other than that I didn’t schedule my time and I enjoyed it.

What if life is meant to be easy? What if going slowly is the way? What if we remember this? And allow Life to fill in the rest. What if that is the secret? I have been reading Amanda Frances’s Rich As Fuck and applying it, doing the inner work, being here now. Feeling good. Following intuition. Last week I didn’t know what to write about for you today but I followed an inkling, a hunch, to go look up a few people on Instagram and then the idea to write about going slowly came. Allowing the water to clear, moving with presence, having fun. What if that is the way?

What if not knowing is the way?

Friend, what if not knowing is the way to where you are going?

If 2020 taught us anything, it is that Life is unpredictable and, for all our plans and organising, we really don’t know what’s round the corner. Cancer has taught me this too. There have been times, these past seven years, when I really thought I knew what I was doing, like with the NORI protocol and the other books I read that seemed to hold the answers. Then I realised that I know nothing.

I have come to this conclusion a few times. First, it was when I thought I was healthy and then found out I had a 6cm metastatic breast cancer tumour in my brain sac. Then I tried to carry on as usual, then Life showed me who’s boss again, when I accidentally deleted all my YouTube videos one fateful Saturday. Then I really gave up and, slowly, Life started flowing again. Carefully, I went, taking baby steps not grand gestures.

Since then, there have been times when I tried too hard again and Life had to slap me back down. In 2020, so much stuff kept happening, that I truly did give up. I seriously had no idea how to proceed. So I just meditated a lot daily, like for two hours. At first I tried the Dr Joe Dispenza method, but that was also trying too hard. How did I know? It had no effect. Then I just started to meditate by focusing on my body again, just gently. And letting Life lead. Things got better.

And they have been ever since. I think! No not I think, I feel. Thinking is the problem. Because we think we know, but we don’t. So I’m just seeing what happens. What happened when I let go and started saying “I have no clue what’s best for me”? People showed up, experts, appointments were made. I didn’t have to do so much. Kyle Cease talks about this, Can you sit in the space of “I don’t know and it’s ok”?  So that’s where I’m at.

How about you?

What if feeling shame is the way to success?

Friend, what if feeling shame is the way to success?

In the last few years I’ve been getting more in touch with my feelings rather than being too positive. Because I realised five years ago that my problem is that I get the lesson before I have truly felt the experience. And when I look around at people who are successful, whether it be in health or career, it seems that they are not only positive but capable of feeling a full range of emotions.

Spiritual and manifesting teachers like Lacy Phillips and Kyle Cease teach this too. Kyle, my favourite guru of the moment, actually says that when we cry, we alchemise the trauma and emotions in our bodies. So I’ve been trying to cry more. And welcoming it when it comes. When I can’t, I use this method for feeling feelings. It really works! I used it when my ex husband told me he was having a baby with his new partner and I just felt numb.

When I was practising the law of attraction a lot, I also realised that when I just tried to be positive rather than feel my feelings, it was like trying to hold a beach ball under the water, and wasn’t effective. The teachers say that when we are present, whether in an activity or meditating, feelings arise and we just have to hold space for them, just let them be. Because an emotion is energy in motion, it will dissipate.

Recently I noticed too that when I wake from a nap, I often feel shame, over putting myself out there and online. Now that I am aware of it, I welcome it. And feel it. It only lasts for a few minutes. When I don’t do embarrassing things, I don’t experience this. But by feeling it, we release it, and then we don’t have to eat, text, stalk, smoke, drink it or do any other addictive behaviours to avoid feeling it. And our vibration lifts. So we are more powerful, energetically, and things just seem to work out. Maybe.

How about that?

How To Turn Fear To Faith!

‘Feed Your faith and your fears will starve to death.’

~  Seen on Instagram

After having three major surgeries in the last seven years, two on the brain and one on the breast, and all the rest that comes with metastatic breast cancer, I know a thing or two about turning fear to faith.

In fact, you don’t turn fear to faith, like you don’t turn fat to muscle. You simply increase the faith (or the muscle) and the fear becomes drowned out. Ok clearly I don’t know so much about fat and muscle so let’s stick to the topic. How to turn fear to faith?

    1. Affirmations

When I was in the hospital that week following the first brain surgery, when the 6cm tumour and my whole brain sac was removed, the medication I was put on also had the side effect of causing anxiety and confusion. One day in particular when my mind really was slipping into the abyss, the thing I clung to was the repetition of this affirmation.

All is well. Everything is working out for my highest good. Out of this only good will come. I am safe. 

I repeated it over and over. And over. What affirmations do is, as well as being a prayer and programming of the subconscious mind, they create new neural programming. Because when you’re having this thought, you’re not having another thought. In this way they put you into a higher vibe state so you actually can receive different thoughts, aka think positively.

2. Belief

If you believe that things are happening for you and not to you, if you really believe this and reflect on your life enough to actually know in your bones that it is so, then you trust. You have faith. Of course it can be hard to see this in the moment but if you believe in a higher power, higher self or creative force, then you don’t have to manage it all yourself.

Everything is always working out for us.

In everyday life, we must build this faith in whatever we want to believe. Find examples in real life or on the internet and program your subconscious mind to know it can be so. This is what I did via Chris Beat Cancer, Dr Gabor Mate of When The Body Says No and many others. Plus, I had a lot of practice with the mind and Life’s magic to know there’s more to it than what most of society believes.

3. Action

Taking action increases faith because you are actually doing something, not just thinking about it. For a while I practiced adopting my parents’ diet but that didn’t work out well. Then I went headlong into the keto diet and read books about the metabolic theory of cancer. While that was helpful in many ways, it wasn’t my path. Eventually, following intuition, I found the Nori protocol.

Whatever you’re doing is working. It all adds up. 

 I had also been practising the law of attraction and just being happy. That was also not my solution. When I was actually eating healthily and gave up alcohol, on the NORI protocol, I felt healthy also. I knew I was doing my part in the equation and the rest was not up to me. Action builds faith because well, not only are you doing something, but also it decreases the resistance of desiring without doing.

4. Neutrality

As I’ve shared, when I was 24, I first learned how to harness the power of my mind and, while I haven’t done it perfectly in the years since, daily practice, in the last five years especially, has enabled me to push the thoughts out of my head. Rather than trying to change my thoughts, these days I practice thinking nothing. How to think nothing? The more you practice meditation, the better you become at this. You can bring your attention to the chest and focus on this, as I share in Master Your Mind.

We are more than the mind. We are Life itself. 

When I become conscious of a thought I’m not interested in entertaining, I imagine a bulldozer pushing it out of my head, but mostly I just allow my mind to have its fun, giving it problems to solve, while I carry on. An important step when feeling anything though is to practise the technique I shared for moving emotion through the body and releasing it. Then you are naturally neutral, like a child after a tantrum or an animal after a fight.

5. Perspective

We cannot see the bigger picture from where we are, we cannot see how things are actually working out for the best. But looking back, this becomes obvious. When I look back on how I accidentally deleted all my YouTube videos that time in 2016 or how I got the breast cancer and then it metastasised, I can now clearly see the benefits.

Whatever’s happening is meant to be, just wait and see.

The law of attraction is also called the art of allowing. I got Allow tattooed to my right wrist with a lightning bolt because I believe in it so much. It was right there that the anaesthetist put the metal into my vein to monitor my pulse the second time I had brain surgery. Thank God for that!! While seeing the bigger picture, it’s important that we do feel our feelings. Sometimes I’ve also missed the opportunity for real transformation by not fully feeling the pain of what I was going through.

Learning to master my mind was the best thing that ever happened to me. If you’d like to tune into intuition/instinct and gain the clarity of your Life’s guidance while taming the beast of fear and chatter between the ears, I’m offering to do the practice with you so you can ask any questions and get help and clarification as we go. To join, you simply have to do the following.

Manifesting A Miracle This Week!

‘Rule your mind or it will rule you.’

~ Horace

When I hear how many Australians commit suicide every week. When I read that another ex has been brutally murdered. When I see that doctors, nurses and health staff are feeling so stressed and overwhelmed. That people are fighting over toilet paper. That an old friend has bought Master Your Mind because his wife has a serious illness. I think, no I must not be quiet. I must share this.

Because if we have control of our mind, if we have happiness, the kingdom is ours. We are each so powerful. SO powerful.

Something amazing happened last weekend. I had been watching some videos on selling on Amazon on Friday night and it put me in a bit of a low vibe state. It felt quite overwhelming and I felt tired, too tired to blah put myself out there again. I went to sleep and two hours later woke up, tossing and turning with “What if I fail?” thoughts.

I tried to just breathe through it. Then I remembered this other video I wanted to watch from Aaron Doughty, a law of attraction/consciousness teacher. He was saying that in 2020 it’s all about how you can help and it has to come from the heart, in no matter what field we’re in. But it has to be genuine.

At the beach with my friend the next morning, I was telling her I’d decided I was going to practise the law of attraction more when it came to my books. Still not feeling totally in alignment but allowing that to be so, I read and after lunch I fell asleep on the grass there. I remember having an intense dream and feeling this unease. How could I promote Master Your Mind when I’ve just finished talking about Wonderlust?

Just then I received a message from a friend I knew seventeen years ago. He’d got in touch out of the blue a month back to ask me to sign a petition as his wife tragically has developed a motor neurone disease, ALS. Now his message said that he’d bought Master Your Mind and he hoped it would help.

Whoa just like that I was snapped straight out of my head and into my heart! Oh my God. This is so not about me!! If I can help someone out there to create the peace within, that is exactly why I brought the book out now and so quickly!

Now I am so motivated to promote the book because people actually need this. I’ve distilled what I’ve learned over the past 17 years into a 30-day, 20-minute a day process. The crazy thing is that my friend came into my life exactly at the time I’ve been writing to you about, with the break up that propelled me to learn about the power of the mind!

I knew him very briefly between the break up and my trip to India and it was exactly on the Easter Thursday that I went out with him and not with my friends. My ex called the next day to ask why I hadn’t come out. Ja, I remember things. Imagine knowing that seventeen years later, what I learned then would help this guy help the love of his life? Or that him messaging me, following his intuition, would be the motivation I needed right at that moment to share this work?!!

Isn’t it awesome?!

The Breakdown That Created My Best Mind!

‘Rule your mind or it will rule you.’

~ Horace

In case you’ve been stuck under a rock, you may not know that I had emergency brain surgery to remove a 6cm tumour in 2016, which turned out to be metastatic breast cancer. I should get the T-shirt printed. What you may not know though is how miserable and down I felt afterwards, which came as a complete shock.

Oh I was so happy to be having the surgery to put an end to the excruciating migraines – and quite high on the drugs for a bit. But afterwards, after the visitors had dried up and life went back to normal, I found myself so angry and sad. I was sad because life hadn’t turned out as planned – even though I’d tried so hard. And angry because everyone else was living their best life.

I tried to carry on as usual. Life had to play harder. I organised a Body Love workshop and that didn’t go so well. Then, one Saturday, on a day I’d promised myself I wouldn’t work, I decided to just do “one little thing”. I wanted to delete some YouTube videos I’d made and was checking them off. But when I looked up, they were all gone! All of them!!

I tried to get them back, joined chat groups and put out ads. But there was no getting them back. And I was so distraught that I just couldn’t think about it. So, finally, I gave up. 

First, for a month, I sat in bed thinking about all the errors I’d made, feeling like the biggest loser on the planet. But finally I had to pull myself together because being miserable was affecting everyone around me and I didn’t want to pull the house down.

So I started, bit by bit, and then it gained momentum. The thing was that I was grounded for the first time in my life. I couldn’t go anywhere. I just had to be here now.

Just. Be. Here. Now.

That’s what I started doing. I found ways to make myself happy in the present moment and what followed was truly the best year of my life. Because I was better.I was no longer associating with the split mind, the grass is greener mind, but making the most of my life today.

Then I discovered that what I was doing was actually the law of attraction (or art of allowing, as it’s also called). So when other people worried about having enough teaching work, I intentionally did not. When I wanted to go away again, I used these practices too

Since then it’s developed also. Now I’m sharing what I learnt in Master Your Mind : Create Peace Within. It’s a book for busy people!

It’s just 37 pages and consists of 30 daily 20-minute practices with one page of reading for each. That’s it! And there’s only one gratitude practice. I wanted to share how I tune into intuition and flow with life last year in the course (remember?). But I’m sharing it this way instead so I can 1. follow my intuition 2. Help more people and 3. so you can save $500!

Get the Master Your Mind : Create Peace Within book on Kindle.
