In 1985, when at the peak of her career and feeling like she had achieved the ultimate success, Dr. Marilyn Joyce was blindsided when she was diagnosed with melanoma, and within a week’s time of being released from the hospital, was rushed back in again and diagnosed with stage four uterine cancer.
She was only 35 years old! Utterly shocked and dismayed, she wrestled with unimaginable denial, anger, resentment, frustration, and overwhelming feelings of being a helpless victim. In her effort to combat this traumatic set of events, and while endlessly seeking and searching for solutions, leaving no stone unturned, Dr. Marilyn found herself just four years later, while still in search of her magic bullet, instead, in a wheelchair at 88 pounds given less than two weeks to live.
Completely spent, she had no energy for anything…including walking! And as if the cancer itself wasn’t enough, the stress and anxiety of searching for--and trying--every new treatment available had definitely taken its toll!
She was stressed out, tired out, frustrated, anxious and depressed…and in constant pain.
At that point, the miracles began! She found her magic bullets…and her journey back to health took off…
Since recovering from those challenging cancer years, and with immense gratitude for this gift of life, Dr. Marilyn has poured her heart and soul into learning everything she can about creating a simple, easy, practical and quick to implement formula for living a stress-free, high energy, productive life that is filled with peace, love, happiness and joy (…for the vast majority of the time), and how it can be implemented simply within 5-minute segments throughout the day.
