“It's the power of thinking that determines the character of our lives. […] A negative thought can cause any disease on this planet. A negative thought can kill you, even if there's nothing wrong with you but you believe you're going to die, you can die from this. So all of a sudden it says the power of thought, positive or negative, are influencing our lives, but in totally different directions.” – Bruce Lipton, Ph.D

“It’s important to remember that when you face a cancer diagnosis and you have a diagnosis that's supposedly terminal, don't believe it. Your mind has a lot to do with that. Mind has a lot to do with your healing and your bodies do have the power to heal. The power to heal is within us.” – Ty Bollinger
“We need to step away from this fear tactic that's used in the cancer industry and start giving patients realistic hope rather than fear. We need to start teaching them, empowering them, turn this around instead of having them being driven by fear, have them be driven by realistic, positive attitudes about their ability to heal because they do have that ability. They can heal from cancer.” – Mike Adams
