  • Probably under diagnosed due to unreporting, because as females many of us can tell you that we tend to get told, ‘Oh, it’s something you can expect because… of your age, child birth, etc etc. One gets brushed off often even by female doctors.

  • Guided meditation really helps I’ve been doing it before I saw this video and you feel like it is actually your first language rather than the one you’re learning. I’m kind of happy it confirmed by you:)

  • I listen audios or videos in foreign language while I cook or wash dishes etc. that is a pretty good way to get more listening input during your daily chores. And the great thing is that you can implement this way to so many different things/habits. You might get some hours of listening input this way.

  • It’s true. I was feeling down until I read stories of thing people have impulsively bought for the covid 19 quarantine. One lady bought 9 bottles of ketchup and another lady bought 50 eggs ������.

  • Can you please tell some alternate words to f**, bi* by replacing with other swear words based on the situation. Not only while texting but also while giving speeches based on the context.

  • Hi Lucy, It’s an interesting lesson, I appreciate it, By the way I’d like to ask you a question, in fact I’m learning English alone at home, I encountered a lot of difficulties in the different nuances between synonyms. I’m having trouble choosing the right word when I speak. Do you know any books or software as a reference that can help me Please?

    Its just im not from an English speaking country,though i was good at it,for a good 5 to 6 years i didnt really focus on improving or speaking or learning in depth and as i result today iam facing such difficulties with grammar,some spellings,words and difficult sentences,more of ive forgotten most of the things,im wanting to relearn but i need guidance,i dont know how to do it,because if from basics i already know that but i dont know which is the correct level im at right now to start wit.
    PLEASE

  • I know there’s a solution. A tool whose name is a pessary tool. This tool is a choice for gynecology, after examination, and find the correct size and model; there’s a lot
    for different kinds of help, and you can use pessary before making a surgery than is more dangerous. or investigate about robotic surgery for vaginal reconstruction. Exercise and Kegel practice are fine, too. Good luck

  • Hello!!
    I have a HUGE question:
    For “a person”, do you use “he” “she” or “they”?

  • Have cancer like I did?
    Laughter can heal cancer but you need enough of it and you need to generate it while in the prayer position. Read my testimonial to understand what I mean.

    BE SAFE! This should only be in addition to your doctors full treatment plan. I designed this complete system. McMaster University or anyone else, feel free to adopt it. Peace.

    December 3rd, 2018 I was diagnosed with cancer. A tumor in my colon with the cancer spreading to my kidneys. I was told my tumor could break at any time. Even with chemo this type of cancer returns every two years. They scheduled more tests but I declined. I decided to fight this disease myself. As an hack energy scientist and physical healer I had a good idea of what needed to be done.

    Growing up I heard a story of a man who healed himself from serious illness by watching hours of comedy in his hospital room. This story stuck with me. The whole idea of laughter as a potential medicine intrigued me. I shared this mans self healing story many times in life.

    In 2017 long before my cancer diagnosis I was testing laughter as a manifestation tool. I love to experiment. I’m a scientist at heart. I spend a lot of time creating and developing effective manifestation tools. Using sincere laughter to manifest physical reality proved successful.

    Because the tool proved effective I upped the anti. I’d long suffered with a serious addiction. I don’t want to discuss it but trust me it was serious. On my hands and knees with my forehead touching the floor [The prayer position], I used prolonged bouts of deep sincere laughter [10 minutes at a time] laughing directly at everything to do with my addiction, it’s desires and my behaviors around it. I got on my hands and knees for 10 minutes, five times a day, six days a week. It took 23 days to successfully break this decades old non chemical addiction.

    In 2018 when I was diagnosed with cancer I was really sick. I had severe pain in my gut. I was passing blood. Experienced rapid weight loss. Waves of sickness hit me all day long. My doctor told me I could live 6 months to 5 years if I accepted treatment. I believed I could do better. I’d spent the last 16 yrs studying the human energy body. Me attempting to heal myself was like asking a mechanic to fix his own engine. I felt I probably knew about as much about healing my cancer as the doctors seemed to know.

    It would be my self developed laughing system on which I’d pin my hopes for survival. In truth I saw my cancer as a challenge. A challenge I could possibly beat. I believed cancer could be beat but question was, could I beat my cancer? A healthy diet & deep laughter was my plan.

    To be successful I knew I’d have to protect my attitude. I permanently shut off the television. I removed myself from anything and everyone negative and while on my hands and knees, I sincerely laughed at everything about my cancer for 10 minutes, 5 times daily, 6 days weekly.

    It wasn’t easy. I often had to push to get laughing sessions done. I cried at times not being sure this would work. It worked for addiction but this was cancer. I prayed to Jesus while mentally preparing to say goodbye to my kids. Psychologically I was in the fight for my life.

    I did this for 37 days before burning out. My goal was 40 days but I just couldn’t go any longer. In truth I was feeling better by the 10th day. By day 37 I felt healthy. The sickness gone. The pain in my gut completely disappeared. I had stopped passing blood and regained the weight I had lost. This without any medical treatment. Blood tests taken 3 months after my diagnosis March 2019, came back normal. My GP said my kidneys were functioning fine. What? I’m healthy as a horse!

    It’s now been 14 months since diagnosis and I’ve passed two medical exams. My GP, I don’t have a cancer doctor, my GP says there’s no sign of cancer but he can’t be sure. Because I’ve refused treatment he won’t do decisive testing leaving it to me to pay for a private CT scan to discover if the tumor’s gone. I don’t want or need the radiation. Except for an old blood pressure issue my doctor considers me healthy.

    I used prolonged bouts of deep sincere laughter [10 minutes at a time] to eliminate my cancer. I got on my hands and knees with my forehead pressed against the floor and deeply laughed at my cancer for 10 minutes, five times a day, six days a week. I did it for 37 days.

    NOTE: The prayer position is a powerful self manipulation tool and a very important component for self healing.
    [It’s an absolute must for self healing.]

    The way I understand it laughter raises core vibration sparking the bodies natural healing ability. With a higher core vibration your body is better able to fight the invading disease. Your body will heal only that which you focus on. Just my opinion. This is not yet proven in the lab.

    What is proven is that all cancers hate oxygen. Laughing provided me with regular doses of deep rich oxygen. So was it an increase in core vibration or high doses of oxygen that healed me? I don’t know. All I do know is that after being diagnosed with cancer 14 months ago, today I’m healthy as a horse!

    Don’t be stupid! Please follow your doctors full treatment plan and only use laughter as a potential additional approach to dealing with your cancer. 5 bouts of laughter daily won’t interfere with cancer treatments or medications, but first ask your doctor for a professional opinion.

    [ ] “Against the assault of laughter nothing can stand.” [ Mark Twain]

    I’ve learned cancer is a spiritual illness not a physical one. A spiritual illness needs a spiritual cure.
    Deep sincere belly laughter on hands and knees will heal your spirit and your spiritual illnesses.
    A claim made by a hack scientist and not even proven in the lab.
    [But it appears to have healed me.]

    I’m proof cancer can be beaten!
    Deep sincere laughter [High Doses of Oxygen & Vibration Medicine] appears to have healed me.:)

    Will it work? It can’t hurt.
    Ask your doctor.
    I am not a licensed anything!

    This is people helping people.
