“The healing journey of my bodacious Ta Ta's:
Healed by Grace and on a Budget”
By Venus De Marco
When Venus DeMarco was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2009, she did what anyone would do. She saw specialists, got second opinions, and began weighing her options for a path to recovery. But unlike most, her decision did not include surgery, burning, or poison. Rather, it took her on an international journey to self-discovery, where she learned to heal not only her body but also her mind and spirit.
In her memoir, The Healing Journey of my Bodacious Ta Ta’s: Healed by Grace and on a Budget, DeMarco writes about using alternative methods to treat breast cancer. Instead of undergoing surgery, Demarco began a journey of physical and spiritual healing. The book follows DeMarco’s journey through breast cancer treatment – from the time she was diagnosed in April 2009 to the present.
DeMarco believes that conventional cancer treatment only cures symptoms, not the cause, which leaves an opportunity for the cancer to return. She stresses the importance of “not becoming your disease” and offers guidance on how to do this: exercise regularly, rest often and follow a primarily vegan, raw and alkaline diet. She also acknowledges the power of faith and spirituality, including reading scriptures and removing stress and negative thoughts.
