Healthy Living



Teresa Werner, patient at Portland Clinic of Holistic Health,  cancer survivor, and now author, has released her new book, CellToons:  The Story of Cancer at a Cellular Level.  Teresa is now in remission from lymph node positive stage IV breast cancer, which had metastasized to her bones.  Teresa had not received any treatment prior to coming to our clinic. After seeing us, Dr. Blake sent Teresa to an oncologist for integrative care. No chemotherapy or radiation was administered by the oncologist, but Teresa received bone protection and estrogen depletion strategies congruent with our clinical approach, while the majority of her care continued to be with us.

“CellToons visually depicts the journey of cancer from diagnosis to survival and is absolutely brilliant.  It takes a special person to encourage and bless others with one of life’s greatest struggles.  Teresa’s love and creativity are vividly displayed in this encouraging illustrated collection of cartoons.  She is trailblazing a path of hope for others to follow.  A gift of hope is precious indeed!  What a brilliant way to defeat the shadows of despair!  Simple, to the point, direct, honest, and most importantly–encouraging.  Truly, a blessing for so many others.”

“From the moment CellToons came into my awareness, it has affected my personal journey on many levels.  The images assist my conscious healing and evolution.  Visualization is one of our greatest devices for manifestation and it gives us remarkable frame of reference to return to when we are out of balance.  CellToons reminds us how easy it is to change our thinking when faced with a serious health problem.  I highly recommend CellToons–it is a mega-powerhouse of inspiration and wisdom!”
