Donna Roth is all about your taking action for your health. Donna has been on a mission of creating awareness and cultivating personal health empowerment for many years. For this herbal educator, holistic health coach, and author of the book Practical Solution to the Cancer Injury, one’s wellness is a profoundly personal journey of questioning conventional beliefs and opening oneself up to unexpected discoveries.
It started in 1993 when Donna was shaken by the cancer deaths of her beloved mother, aunt, and mother-in-law. In the emotional aftermath of these losses, she embarked on a long quest to turn over stones and uncover different perspectives on cancer. Influenced by the work of Antoine Béchamp, Ron Gdanski, and Dr. Jerry McLaughlin (Paw Paw), Donna came to reject many commonly accepted explanations regarding the disease and the role of microbes in our lives.
Donna’s broader perspective on health developed and grew from there. Today she consults clients on a variety of chronic health issues, offering solutions through inflammation reduction, good foods, superfoods, and herbs. She also speaks to groups, sharing heartfelt success stories of those who have taken action for their own health to create their best lives.
We were eager to learn more about Donna and her work.
In a recent BWB video you were asked what it means to create your best life, and you replied, “The freedom in knowing how to take action for your health.” What does this mean to you, and how do you help people on that journey?
In my world it is sad that this question even has to be asked. It is an indication of how far removed we have become from seeing the love nature has for us and all the plants it provides for our beauty and our healing. We have lost the ability to apply simple laws of nature to our health. We have lost the freedom of being self-reliant in health. It is not freedom to live in a state of ignorance regarding how to be in health. It is not freedom to live in fear; fear of cancer, fear of a virus. It is not freedom when we succumb to a belief system that is solely narrated by controlled mainstream media. It is not freedom when we find out we have been manipulated to accept a belief system that is all false. And it is not freedom to rely on an institution that dictates drug and vaccination protocols and they call it the health care system.
After my many years of working with people and witnessing them overcome cancer, arthritis, MS, diabetes, infections, and so on, I decided that in order to move people into becoming self-reliant in health I would need to design a course. Most people desperately needed education. In January 2013 TAFHY was released into the world. The acronym stands for Taking Action For Your Health.
In this course you are taught certain lessons that empower you. You learn the laws of nature and you apply this education to your health. You don’t take TAFYH, you TAFYH and you experience health.
There is an equation on your website that captures a host of different health challenges: C = Injury, Inflammation, Elimination, Infection, Circulation. What does this mean?
This is an equation I designed that follows the laws of nature. Anyone who decides to take on this law-of-nature equation can expect great results in raising the bar for health. To overcome any illness, no matter what the diagnosis, these five pillars need to be addressed. In all diagnosed cases there is an injury.
Cancer, for instance, starts from an injury. Your little stem cell carpenters simply cannot repair the injury for you without nutrient energy, oxygen, and water. Today most nutrient energy does not come from a grocery store, so a reliable outside source is essential. My very favourite products are those from Nature’s Sunshine, where you have access to top quality superfoods such as Mineral-Chi Tonic, Ultimate GreenZone®, Flax Hull Lignans, and Collagen, all of which are tested to ensure there are no chemicals, vaccines, hormones, glyphosates, or any other toxic waste matter.
Now, in a case of a serious problem such as cancer, MS, Parkinson’s, or infertility, the nutrient energy may not be reaching the injured area because the pathways are blocked by inflammation.
Inflammation comes from poisons you are perhaps unknowingly putting into your body, either through ingestion or injection. We live in a day and age where we are not able to discern what is good for our bodies and what is evil for our bodies. Inflammation causes swelling and irritations that obstruct the nutrient energy and oxygen from reaching the injured area. All poisons must be identified, addressed, and cleaned out. I love the herbal Cat’s Claw Combination for opening up the lymphatic system to clean out the poisons. I also love the Flax Hull Lignans, which are scientifically known to bind toxic xenoestrogens.
All elimination channels must be functioning optimally so that these toxic poisons can drain out through our bowels and kidney functions. The One Day Kidney Flush I have designed has the most amazing ability to bring down creatinine levels and to raise the GFR kidney function from ten to twenty points within a month!
Infection happens when the oxygen levels to the injured area drop to below thirty-five percent and oxidation for the purpose of healthy cell replication can no longer take place. In an inner environment of low oxygen levels, it is the law of nature that germs, viruses, parasites, fungus become active to gobble up the toxic debris to allow life to continue. This is scientifically documented by great scientists such as Antoine Béchamp, Dr. Otto Warburg, and numerous others not recognized in today’s society. Yet our society has trained us to believe that viruses are deadly and dangerous!
Circulation of our inner fluids, the blood and lymphatic fluids, is critical and is determined by our body temperature. A healthy body has a temperature of 37 C, or 98.6 F, the temperature at which blood circulation is optimal. It is the blood that carries nutrient energy and oxygen to all cells of your body. It is the lymphatic fluids that clean out toxic waste debris. Cancer cannot grow in a body temperature of 37 C. Yet this simple law of nature never crosses your mind when it comes to the healing process. And the blood must be cleaned out of heavy metals and metabolic wastes, which can be done through oral chelation therapy.
Tell us a health success story you were part of that moved you deeply and deepened your commitment to empowering others.
There are so many health successes stories that have moved me over the many years, so it is difficult to pick just one story. I will tell Sheena’s story. Sheena was born in the Okanagan Valley.
Sheena was my very first client diagnosed with cancer. She came to see me when she was twenty-five years old — with her second bout of the disease. She had suffered a sarcoma cancer in her leg when she was twenty years old. She pursued conventional medical treatments at that time, and here she was five years later diagnosed with lung cancer, told she would have three months to live.
She decided that there must be another way. At this time she was given a letter with my name in it and information about “another way.” She immediately took action and came to my office. That was in 1998.
Sheena listened as I explained what I knew about the laws of nature and nutrition. One thing I want to be clear about is this: it wasn’t that I knew something about cancer; it was that I understood a sick person has a toxic overload and a nutritional deficiency — two simple laws of nature.
One thing that was clearly evident about Sheena was her strong determination: “How dare they give me a death sentence!” It was so strong that she vowed to prove her doctors wrong. Sheena’s mind was made up. She didn’t know where her money would come from to pay for this therapeutic nutritional program. But she believed that when there is a strong, faithful desire, then the universe would provide. Sheena pursued the program and one morning six months later she woke up knowing that her cancer was gone!
Sheena’s story was astounding! It confirmed to me that our bodies are created to heal. Now, twenty-two years later, Sheena is alive and well and continues to have good health. She continues to listen to her body and to nourish it faithfully. Because of good health Sheena was able to get a high-paying job that earned her more money than she would have ever expected.
I remember watching Terry Fox’s determination. Here was a young man with a good heart, wanting the world to find a cure for cancer. However, he chose the medical pathway and, sadly, passed away.
Sheena chose the pathway of natural laws. She had found the answer and wanted the world to see a different way! But the world was turning a blind eye, so I decided to step up my game! The obstacles preventing Sheena’s story from reaching the general public were evident. I became more determined than ever to deepen my commitment to work with those who were looking for the answer.
Let’s go back to 1993, a tough year for you. I remember your moving talk at Storytelling Tuesday. Share some thoughts about that time, when you were in the dark, looking for answers and then finding them.
When my mom was diagnosed with cancer, I brought her to my home so I could look after her in my own way. I was giving her good foods and herbs, and she was very willing to take them. But I could see that she was fading away. She passed away in my arms in May 1993. Here is the beauty of her passing. It was so peaceful and there was absolutely no pain. So, I knew that the herbs made somewhat of a difference for her. I then began searching to find answers as to what had caused her cancer, as she hadn’t been a smoker, a drinker, or a drug user. After years of researching and reading, I found the answer.
A banned book called Health Century by Dr. Edward Shorter fell into my hands. Reading it I learned how Dr. Bernice Eddy was vaccinating hamsters and they all got tumours and cancers of various kinds. My mom had been a cook in a seniors’ home, where the government mandated flu shots for all the workers. She had received one every year for many years, so she had been injected with flu shots many times! This discovery led to a dark time for me. From this point on I decided I would find the answer to cancer. I knew it would never come from the medical system. They had an agenda that I could never support. This quest wouldn’t bring my mom back, of course, but perhaps I could help someone else overcome cancer. My determination led to the discovery of my five-pillar formula: injury, inflammation, elimination, infection, circulation. Countless numbers of people have now overcome cancer by abiding by this formula.
A potential elephant in every room right now is vaccination. I’ve read many of the comments on your website. As most of us know, this is a controversial topic. What do you want people to know about vaccination?
Vaccination is a belief system that was started by Louis Pasteur, based on a germ theory that has many times been proven to be false. I echo the words of Dr. Judy Mikovits: the germ theory is false. Viruses and germs are all part of us and of nature. They gobble up toxic waste debris to allow life to continue. Imagine the cesspool of debris we would be living in without germs and bacteria and viruses!
Next, I want everyone to know about the ingredients present in a vaccination shot. Read the insert. Read the risks! Would you feed mercury, aluminum, formaldehyde, sick animal pus, and human diploid cells to your child? Would you eat these yourself? This totally goes against the laws of nature. These are poisons created by the hand of man in some secret lab that neither you nor I have access to, and it is simple common sense that these poisons don’t belong in our bodies.
No, polio shots did not save children from getting polio. Polio was caused by the DDT sprays, and the polio cases increased after polio shots were instituted. To remedy the situation, the name polio was simply changed to aseptic meningitis to make the statistics appear that the rates of polio were decreasing as a result of vaccinations.
Very recently, lawyer Robert Kennedy Jr won a significant court case when he proved that there have been no safety studies on any vaccines for the last thirty-two years! And to top this list, all vaccine manufacturers are immune from any lawsuits. Why is this information hidden from the general public?
Now, what about science? From my reading, ninety percent of the published medical information that doctors rely on is flawed. One physicist said there’s nothing that is scientifically proven. All science is based on prejudices, on certain mindsets, maybe even on money.
Bottom line: all vaccination shots are genetically engineered in a lab and they are dangerous. They are the cause of a whole host of diseases such as cancer, MS, diabetes, and so on. Vaccines contain dangerous poisons that bypass your first line of immune defence when they are injected straight into your blood system. Vaccinations go against all natural laws. And today we are being warned of a mandated vaccine for the COVID-19 virus. To force those of us that understand the laws of nature to get a dangerous vaccine against our will is cruel and callous. What your immune system needs is not a vaccine but nutrient energy and vitamins and minerals!
Share something about yourself — a fun fact, interesting perspective, or engaging story — that many wouldn’t know.
When my grandson was five years old, he came home from his day-care school one day to inform me that his teacher told him that germs were bad. I saw this as a great teaching opportunity. So, I asked him,” Remember that dead crow on the lawn? Well, it is germs that break that crow down into the dust of the earth. Germs do really good work for us! And we should always be thankful to germs.”
I could see the wheels turning in his head. Then a smile appeared on his face. At that moment I knew he got it!
It is up to each of you to get it.
