Episode Summary:

Introduction and Megan’s background @ 0:00

Megan shares her background moving from screenwriting to lobbying to documentary filmmaking after chronic Lyme disease led her to alternative therapies.

Megan’s health journey leads to alternative therapies @ 2:20

Contracting Lyme disease and her husband’s lung cancer prompted Megan to try a Rife machine, healing both and launching her research into alternatives suppressed by conventional medicine.

The Rife machine as a healing modality @ 7:08

Megan explains how the Rife machine uses frequencies to target pathogens, recounting healing her Lyme disease and a friend’s cancer with it before her husband’s tragic death choosing chemotherapy over further trials.

Big influences in cancer research and treatment @ 26:52

Megan’s research uncovered the ASCO paper dismissing sugar-cancer links was Coca-Cola funded, galvanizing her documentary’s focus on lifestyle factors like diet conventional oncology ignores.

Stories of cancer reversals with alternative therapies @ 30:15

Patients like the woman who reversed stage 4 pancreatic cancer with alternatives after refusing conventional care inspire hope, though such successes rarely spread beyond individual oncologists.

Empowering viewers with knowledge and hope @ 40:57

By educating viewers on options like in her documentaries, Megan aims to replace fear with hope and empower people to advocate for themselves when facing chronic illness diagnoses instead of feeling powerless.

How’s this? I aimed for concise yet insightful summaries of each chapter by focusing on the key people, events, discoveries and intentions discussed. Please let me know if any part needs more work or clarification.

Your health isn't everything. But without it, everything else is nothing. And yet too many of us are taking it for granted until something goes wrong. No one wakes up hoping to be diagnosed with a disease or chronic illness. And yet, we've never been taught how to be proactive in our health through our school system, or public health. As a registered health coach and integrative health practitioner, I believe it is time this information is made available to everyone. Combining new knowledge around your health and the ability to do my functional medicine lab tests in the comfort of your own home will allow you to optimize your health for today in all your tomorrow's don't wait for your wake up call.

Melissa Deally:

Welcome back to another episode of The don't wait for your wake up call podcast. I am Melissa Deally, your host and today I have with me the wonderful Megan Smith. Welcome to the show, Megan.

Megan Smith:

Thank you, Melissa. Thanks for having me.

Melissa Deally:

I'm so excited to have you on the show because of course I've seen your documentary loved it. And then when I was connected to you of course I wanted to have you on the show but let me introduce you to the audience. Before we dive in. Megan holds an MS in biology with a thesis in molecular genetics and currently works as a documentary filmmaker and freelance investigative journalist in the areas of science and health. In 2016, she founded waymark productions, a company dedicated to bettering the lives of those with health afflictions. Prior to that she worked consecutive decades as a screenwriter at Capitol Hill lobbyists for renewable energy and a stage performer recording artist. Smith was the first to report on the inaccuracy of the Lyme disease testing for The Washington Post and the government's gross underreporting of this epidemic for her local paper. She wrote, produced and directed her first short documentary boobs, the war on women's breasts, which garnered international film festival awards. Starting October 2020. Smith's feature film by the same name was distributed by the Los Angeles based cinema Libra studio, the film looks into different breast cancer screening tests for women. And she also wrote produced and directed her second film a new standard of care, alternative cancer therapies, which investigates the area of non conventional cancer therapies. The film is dedicated to her late husband who passed away of cancer in 2009. And that is a documentary that I was brought to my attention right when it came out earlier this year, and I thought, Ooh, I want to know more about this. So of course, being in the holistic side of health, I'm always looking at alternative therapies. And I thoroughly loved it and have shared it with many people and will continue to do so. However, I'd love to just go back, Megan to you and and start with your story. How did you get from Capitol Hill lobbying into where you're at today?

Megan Smith:

Yeah, it's been a strange career path I've had? Well, let's see. I was writing screenplays at the time that I was I came down with chronic Lyme disease. And the doctor said, you know, they didn't catch it in time. So now you have to get us Johns Hopkins. They said you have to stay on high dose IV antibiotics the rest of your life, on and off, and I said, No, I'm not doing that. So, at the same time, a friend of mine was was going through cancer, another bout with squamous cell carcinoma on his leg. And we both landed he was my acupuncturist. We both landed on the same thing. We wanted to try a Rife machine ri F E that someone had also told me about. So we bought this machine, we split it and he treated us his carcinoma, I treated my Lyme disease and about a year later, we were both healed. And you know, both of those, you can't normally do it. When do we only use the Rife machine? So I said, Well, there's something Why isn't this being talked about? So about a year later, my husband contracted lung cancer. And I said, Look, why don't you try this machine? Your stage four one is tried this machine before you do chemo and radiation. And so he said, I don't understand this thing. I'll try it for a couple days. So he tried it for three days. The wheezing from his lung cancer went away. I said, I think that's means that it's working. Well, why don't we try this instead of going into radiation tomorrow? He said, I don't understand it. I have to listen to my doctor, you know, and we followed the white coat. And so six months later he was he was gone. I believe that he was basically dying by the chemotherapy. I think they over chemo them because they gave him five I have a cocktail of five chemos. And they gave him the second round, and he was gone. So I stood about that for about six years. And finally, I watched Ty Bollinger series, somebody sent me that and I said, you know, I'd like to get the stuff, you know, do a deeper dive, take what Ty did, and then put everything into one film, documentary films. So that's what I did. And it is a long film, but I decided it's never going to be in the theaters, you know, they've false information, medicine stuff. So I went ahead and just put it all in there for people act one is about what they're doing. Now, standard of care. Act Two is about what we could be doing the alternatives. And I talked to have two hour and 200 hours of doctors talking and patients. So I go through those. And then the third act is why we're not using these therapies now.

Melissa Deally:

And I'm so glad that you put all of this together. Because I'm such a believer that we don't know what we don't know, until we need to know. And sometimes when we're in that until we need to know, we're in that fear place. And we just think there's only one path or one solution. Because that is what the medical industry knows, that's what they're taught. And that's what they offer. And the reality is, this is a long documentary, because there are so many alternative methods to healing. And getting this out to the public is so important so that they can understand they do have choices in their healing modality. And if we know that ahead of time, if we just take the time to educate ourselves to be aware, when we're in the moment of some diagnosis, we at least know where to go back to for the resources. And we know we have options. And we can be empowered in our health.

Megan Smith:

Right, if I had known about Ty Bollinger, his work, if I just seen that, before he was diagnosed, I would have been so much more empowered with that information. So all I had was the Rife machine, which actually in itself is kind of a salt silver bullet for a lot most, if not all of cancers. But I need it, you know, the other stuff was very important to and I just wished I'd had it before. So that's why I made this film is like get educated now, you know, because, you know, one in orders that one in two men, one in three women are going to get cancer in their lifetime. And those numbers are just escalating quickly because of that now, so.

Melissa Deally:

Exactly. And I believe it's by 2030, that it's going to be one in two men and women. So that numbers definitely coming down. Talk to me more about this Rife machine. I know you mentioned it just before we came on, and you said its energy healing. Just yeah, introduce that more to the audience so that people have a greater understanding about that as well. Because in your husband's case, he didn't know what it was, he didn't understand it. So he wasn't sure that he wanted to use it. If people can understand it, then again, it becomes another tool that they can use on their healing journey. Right.

Megan Smith:

And it's kind of complicated, but it was founded back in the 30s. And it's an energy medicine machine, you know, they largely came out of Russia and Germany, which is where a lot of the great, amazing medicine comes out of. And so basically, there was a gentleman royal rife row, Raymond rife back in the 30s, who invented this machine. And he noticed that when he was running it beside a micro organism, the micro organism, if he hit a certain frequency, the organism would explode, which is lysing the cell or killing the organism. And so he said, Wow, this is fantastic. So I started messing around with the frequencies of the machine. And he found that anytime during the lifecycle of the organism, he could kill it. So he went he painstakingly went through all these different micro organisms, typhoid and the isolated breast cancer virus that was in a lot of a lot of cancers are virally or bacterial mediated what they call and so he killed the virus of the breast cancer and the breast cancer went away. So he went through all these different viruses and bacterias and molds and funguses and wrote down all of his frequencies, and thank God those survived through the years because they tried to, you know, they burned down his laboratory at one time and did all this terrible stuff to him. Of course, after he turned him down, Farmer wanted to buy him out. And he said, No. So anyway, he he was Brian and these machines, there's only a couple that I would recommend. And I don't know if I should say him on the air or not. One of them's the GB 4000 I've never used that one. But I've heard great things about it. And the other one is the one I use and that one's out of Canada, and if you Google it, you will probably be able to find it. But they're they're expensive. They're a little little expensive, but you know, I use it for everything.

Melissa Deally:

Yeah, it can become part of your daily routine to boost your, your health through boosting your energy and raising your own frequency, right

Megan Smith:

and their pre their pre programmed frequency. So you just have to push in the, you know, my teeth, I'm going to clean up my teeth are wanna, you know, I had pneumonia from COVID at one point and I ran the staph strep and it went away. So there's all kinds of stuff it's handy for.

Melissa Deally:

Yeah, not just one thing. And as you said earlier to you healed yourself from Lyme disease from this, and I know so many people that are struggling from Lyme disease, I know a few that have healed themselves. And all of what we're talking about here, ultimately, are chronic illnesses. Right. And in my work, I know that chronic illnesses are really triggered by three main things, which is our toxic load, because we live in a toxic world, our nutrient depletion, we're not getting enough good nutrients into our body, that what for what our body needs to truly thrive, and to be able to help the detoxification process and then high stress, because that just trashes our immune system trashes our sleep, etc, etc. And then the other piece of it is looking at, you know, the emotional toxicity, what's been stuffed down from earlier years in our life that over time builds up a toxicity in our body and our mental toxicity. How are we talking to ourselves? Are we talking to ourselves around healing from this? Or are we in that fear place, because that's what's been put on us. And so I love all of this work, because as we said, there's more than one way to heal. Having a tool like your Rife machine, for your own access is your tool for focusing on your health. And that's really, in my work. What I love to empower people to do is to focus on their own health.

Megan Smith:

Yeah, it's keeping. One thing you have to keep in mind is keeping the inflammation load down, because chronic diseases are inflammation. So everything you just talked about increased inflammation in the body, and things like eating sugar, instead of eating healthy foods, sucrose, especially highly inflammatory. So McDonald's, Coca Cola is all that stuff, highly inflammatory foods. And I actually had at one of my breasts, my found on the thermogram, and was inflamed, I didn't know it until the thermogram picks it up. And I was not eating while I was eating McDonald's twice a week, and I was on the road filming and I wasn't looking after myself. And I gained like 20 pounds, and I was on three medications. And I wasn't happy about that. So I found a naturopath. And she got me off the meds by giving me supplements instead. And lo and behold, I'm off all meds now. I've changed my lifestyle around and the inflammation went away. But that was a warning sign that I might have been going down the road of breast cancer. So they're fantastic. And my first film boobs, is about what we could be doing instead of mammograms, which is just high dose radiation. They're saying it's low dose, but it's not. It's, it's, it's high by the time they get done with you. And there's a long explanation there. But trust me,

Melissa Deally:

oh, I know it to be true myself. And I also choose thermography over mammograms and I get, you know, reminders that I'm late for my mammogram and yet, like why would I do that when I know that I can use thermal thermography, which is non invasive, and it finds anything that might be off far sooner. So that you can actually take pretty simple natural health remedies in order to resolve it, you know, even down to as simple as just using some, some oils, depending on what's going on to using your Rife machine, et cetera, et cetera.

Megan Smith:

Yeah, fantastic. I love that. thermogram Yeah,

Melissa Deally:

so why since I found it, so that's how I look after my breast health as well. And what I learned in my history in researching this versus mammograms is they were both developed around the same time in the 70s. And big pharma pushed away thermogram and thermography and discredited it and promoted mammograms. And we all think, or it's promoted to us that mammograms are preventative care. And it's not because they're using it to find the lumps that then put you down the path of chemo and radiation. Because they're found on a mammogram that's the solution versus

Megan Smith:

Yeah, I'm not sure how it came to be the woman think that mammograms are preventative, but apparently I've just found that a lot of women think that I mean, we're solid tumor in your breasts has been there between two and 10 years. Yes. So what you end but then hard to reverse because very mammograms find very few stage one cancers, which are, they can actually cure those with surgery. But very few of them like I had a gentleman 30 years, radiology, he only found like two stage ones the whole time. And so stage 234, you're going down the road of chemo, radiation, and then it's probably going to come back specially if you don't change your lifestyle because of the treatments. So if you do thermogram, catch it before it turns into a solid tumor a lot easier to reverse before it's in a solid tumor form. So, yeah, you're spot on.

Melissa Deally:

Exactly. And so I also heard, and I read it in a book, and it was about a pharmaceutical rep or company that was saying that a woman with breast cancer was worth anywhere from 800,000 to $1.2 million to the medical industry. And this book was written in around the year 2000. So it's already over 20 years old. So you can imagine with inflation, what that is now, the next line that they said, really bothered me the most. And a woman without breast cancer is worth nothing material. That's their perspective. That is their perspective. And so the race business, it is it's big business, that's what it is. And they're trying to, you know, grow their profit for their shareholders, etc. However, when you're focused only on your shareholders and their profit, you're not focused on human health. And so that's why I love having people like you come on this show, and why have the show in the first place is I want people to know a that they can be empowered in their healing journey. They have a right to ask questions, they have a right to get second and third opinions, and to hear from others about the different options that are available, which is what you've created with your two documentaries. And so thank you so much for doing that. Because people want to know, and people deserve to know this information.

Megan Smith:

Yeah, and it's always good to know it before you have the problem. I can't stress that enough. Because once you have your diagnosis, you like my husband, he froze like a deer in the headlights and just gave into it. And I know, I only know two of my friends that had been diagnosed with cancer that actually said, No, I'm just gonna do the research. And they live, they beat the odds. But everybody else just gave into it and followed the white coat. And they were miserable. It was it was terrible.

Melissa Deally:

And I've recently done that myself, I had a diagnosis of melanoma in my lower right leg. And I thought I was going down to have the surgery to have it removed. And it turned out, I was simply going down to meet the surgeon so she could tell me all the steps and listening to her tell me all the steps of how I would need to have the surgery to have the mole removed, I would need to have surgery to have lymph nodes removed. Before I could do that I needed to go to another hospital to get flooded with radiation so they could determine which lymph nodes needed to be removed. And then all of that would then also determine the protocol they would put me on after the surgery.

Megan Smith:

Was there a little Kitchen Kitchen Kitchen after each of those?

Melissa Deally:

Well, not for me, I'm in Canada. Okay, so I wasn't hearing that Kitchen Kitchen Kitchen. However, what I was hearing was my intuition saying no, no, no, no, no, I don't need all of this. And I have all of these other resources and all of this other knowledge that will allow me to go down a different path. And yet fear still crept in. And so like you said, if that fear gets in, and you don't have anything else to fall back on, that's when you end up the deer in headlights. And for me, driving home for two hours after that appointment, I was driving home and I could feel the fear coming in. And and then I was like, why is this happening for me? Because I know, everything is happening for us all the time, what is the learning I need to learn here so that I can move through this. And that gets me out of the fear and into a place of action. And then I started looking at all of the different options I had in my healing journey and all the resources I could pull in. And that's exactly what I started doing. I started doing some vitamin C IVs to really be boosting my immune system. And knowing that that high dose Vitamin C is also killing the cancer cells because they think it's sugar and they have 15 times the sugar receptors and instead of attracting the sugar, they were attracting the vitamin C which kills them. And I worked with an energy healer and I looked at some new German medicine and what was the significant emotional event that caused this to happen in the first place. And then I use timeline therapy to release it. And then I had my surgery to have the mole removed. However, I didn't have general which is what they wanted. I couldn't have local because it was a bigger incision. However, I went for a nerve block and no anesthesia. And instead you use Theta Healing apps to drop my son off into the Theta Healing mode. So it didn't have to take on the anesthesia. And that allowed my healing to be much faster. And then working with infrared healing pads and more Theta Healing afterwards. So my recovery was faster. I have all of this knowledge. So I can do that. And I'm sharing my story. So others know they can do that, which is just like you sharing your story. To let others know there isn't just one way.

Megan Smith:

Yeah, I kept feeling all along this journey, starting with the Lyme disease. I kept these things just kept happening to me. And they're hard to go through. I mean, let's be honest, right. But I also felt like, I mean, I just and I got, I got COVID A number of times, I wanted to long COVID. I'm like, it's another learning experience. And I'm not vaccinated. And I was like, Okay, God, I'm really done with the personal journeys, like, I gotta be healthy enough to help other people. So you don't have to put any more on my plate, I get it. This is my job. But yeah, we had a conversation, I hope everybody was listening up there. But yeah, it's it is, if you seize the moment, you can, it is amazing, you know, and, to that point, the patients that I saw, like stage four reversed with all the alternatives went to Mexico, they said, like, even even if I die, this has been such an amazing spiritual journey for me, I just cannot tell you, I would not have traded this in for the world. I mean, it was very powerful. And that speaks volumes to everyone that reverse the cancer, by the way, was spiritual across the board, each of them in their own

Melissa Deally:

way. And they may not have been beforehand, they may have come into it during that journey, because that was part of the learning was to come into that spiritual alignment. And that is a very big piece of any cancer healing journey that I've heard of myself as

Megan Smith:

well, in any chronic disease. I think my husband went to church every Sunday, and, you know, his had his whole life. And I thought he was extremely, you know, had high faith or whatever. And, boy, but that when this thing hit, whenever he never talked about it, I it was really interesting, I wasn't expecting that at all. So I'm not sure what was going on his head, because we've never talked about it, he didn't want to talk about it. So he closed down, wrong thing to do.

Melissa Deally:

And spirituality and religion are also different. Right. And so as you say, the people who survive are the people that who find their spirituality,

Megan Smith:

that he was a good person who just didn't know how to really given to the spirit, I guess,

Melissa Deally:

and how to have that faith and that trust in something else, which I totally understand, especially after going through my recent journey, that the fear that is put into you, by the doctors, is intense, right? It's very intense, and I felt it. And so I understand why people go down that path, just following what they say you need to do. However, as we're both saying here, if you know, different options ahead of time, you have the ability to step back, and just say, give me a moment, let me do my research.

Megan Smith:

Right, we think that they have the answers, because they're medical doctors, but there's other types of medical doctors out there that are also standard change trained, but they work with alternatives, and they work with the science and they're knowledgeable. And so they know, they know, actually more and in a lot of ways, because I know a lot of a lot of doctors that I've run into just I'm like, No, that's not what the literature says even I don't know why. Just like doctors hate me, when I walk in, I come in with a big, you know, trunk on my shoulder, because I'm so well read by the time I get there.

Melissa Deally:

So, and that's the thing, a lot of these holistic healing modalities have come up in the last 20 to 30 years. And it takes 20 years to create change from when that new you know, college student starts in medical school, to whatever is being taught then to reach the family doctor practice. And that's part of the delay and like we've said, they only know what they know, I don't know how to do surgery, right? And I'm not going to offer to do surgery on anyone. However, I've learned what I've learned in my journey, you've learned what you've learned, and we both know that there are other ways.

Megan Smith:

Yeah, they've been they've been indoctrinated. And that's the they know the standard of care. It keeps them out of trouble. Liability wise, they follow it. I mean within an oncology chemotherapy, there's a little bit of wiggle room they can change Just what chemo is they put into like the doctor that proctor had chose to, you know, stage four, you know, and he this doctor actually told me I put this in my phone. He actually admitted that sometimes he puts three chemos into a patient instead of two or he will go out of business. When he was pressured by what's this about kickbacks for chemo? by someone in the room, I won't go into details. But so I mean, I was like, whoa, what what, you know, and Proctor's still didn't boot him off as being as oncologist proctor wanted to go travel for two weeks before you started the chemo, he was out of pain because of the radiation. And the doctor said, No, you have to go right now right now right now, I don't know if he thought he was headed to Mexico, and he's going to lose a patient. But I've had oncologist say, No, it's you have to get the patient in there right away, or they will go find another doctor or go to Mexico. So they Russia when they pressure you. It's terrible,

Melissa Deally:

right? Because they want to keep you as a patient because of the dollars versus actually helping you find the best solution for your journey. And not everyone does that. However, it is a pattern and a trend that we are seeing, because they too are under pressure, right? Under pressure from the clinics to be making more money for the clinic, because kickbacks, etcetera, etcetera. So I love to ask you in regards to the new standard of care documentary as you did that, what was your biggest aha, as you went through interviewing everybody for that documentary?

Megan Smith:

I had a number of aha was, oh, well, one of them. One of the big ones for the patient and oncology in general, was that the association of sorry, American Society of Clinical Oncologists, ASCO, they did a paper for their annual meeting that went up before all the oncologists that go to this meeting, that said that sugar doesn't feed cancer at a higher rate. They looked at all the independent studies, and they went through statistically and said, they're all insignificant, which is, don't get me going on statistics. And at the bottom of the this paper, it said it was funded by Coca Cola. And that's when I want that was a big aha, that was like, Okay, I'm doing a huge thing on sugar and cancer. And I go into it deep in the film. And I hope it was entertaining. I tried to keep the film entertaining, I had a friend of mine story, my husband's story, my story. And I tried to put as much humor as I could, every time I found a little nerdly humor and put it in

Melissa Deally:

your entertaining, and I really enjoyed watching it. But

Megan Smith:

thank you ppreciate did my job, you did your

Melissa Deally:

job. And for me, it's a great tool that I can now share with my clients with my family and friends. If they find themselves in a health situation, when I hear about it early on, and like watch this before you decide any course of action, just watch this. And as I said to you, before we got on, I watched it it double speed, anybody that's trained to their mind to be able to do that I listened to all my podcasts at double speed, too. It's a long documentary, because you have so much to share,

Megan Smith:

Megan, that I didn't feel like I could take anything out. I asked Dr. And I asked my editor and they said no, there's, it's gonna be a long documentary. Just keep it all in. It's all informative. So

Melissa Deally:

exactly. And so if somebody's looking at it going, Oh, I don't have five hours for this, watch it at double speed. Even at double speed, I think I watched it over two evenings. And that totally worked, I was able to capture all of the information. And now it's always there for me to share for me to go back to. And I highly recommend everybody watching this, it's in the show notes, Megan has very graciously made it available at no cost to anybody. Because this is such important information for the world to have. And especially now, as you've said, with all of the, you know, Turbo cancers, we're now seeing post COVID, vaccines, et cetera, that people need to know this so that they can get the solution that works for them. You're not telling them what they have to do. I'm not telling anybody what they have to do. However, people can't make an informed decision if they don't have all the information.

Megan Smith:

Right. Have all the tools in your tool chest. Exactly.

Melissa Deally:

Exactly. And which stories slash doctor that you interviewed or interviewee not necessarily just a doctor was your favorite interview

Megan Smith:

doctors or patients or

Melissa Deally:

any people just pick one or pick one of each.

Megan Smith:

Um, gosh, the oncologist who I found down in Mexico, he was a standard. Senator, Senator Lee trained he's now back in the US by the way, but he was down in Mexico for a year he was he was brilliant. He was a real searcher. He knew all kinds of stuff. He was so forthcoming in the film. He really made the film, Dr. yaka bony. And then you know the patients stories were amazing. There was there was one woman who had stage four pancreatic and it spread toward her liver. And I heard this over and over but she went to a prestigious place. And she said, No, I'll have the surgery. She She survived the whipple surgery, which is like crazy. 12 hour surgery, you know, and most people don't survive but she did it she said she said no, I'm not gonna chemo radiation went to Mexico, Dr. Tony and hope for cancer. He reversed it, you know, what was left of all the other tumors in her liver and stuff. And he she went back to the place that you know, hoity toity Medical Center. And they said, What on earth did you do? Tell me everything you did, because this is crazy. Everything's got they thought their their machines were broken, the scans, right?

Melissa Deally:

Because it was gone. And they'd never seen that before.

Megan Smith:

Right. And these doctors find out about these amazing reversals, but they might ask about it, but then they won't go anywhere. It's not in the newspaper or something, it was like it gets buried somewhere in the tumor board.

Melissa Deally:

Because again, they're under, you know, specific guidelines that are put in place that are feeding an industry, right, really prioritizing human health.

Megan Smith:

Yeah, and pharma just wants to find a natural product trying duplicated replicated in the lab, but they synthesize it out of oil chemicals, and then the body doesn't recognize it the same way. And then you get the side effects. If they just use the free, inexpensive natural product, we'd be so much better off but they just they want to make a profit, they want to patent things. So that's a big problem.

Melissa Deally:

It is, it really, truly is. And I've always said that I wish that our health industry and even our food industry were not for profit industries. Because it's the profit that's driving the chemicals that are in the food to extend the shelf life and all the processed food and the more sugars and the GMO products because it's cheaper for them to make. And same with the medical industry. It's the profits that's driving the decisions. And we really can't change that it's so big, we really can't change that all we can change is what we want to do for ourselves and empowering ourselves by getting educated.

Megan Smith:

Right? I mean you got you got cuz I used to lobby Congress, you've got big sugar is connected with big food because they work together. And then so they they get us sick, they keep us sick, and then we have to go to medicine and they you know, they don't do a real good job with chronic diseases. They they don't care chronic diseases. I mean, they just don't they give you a pill or they give you chemo or something. So it's this weird cycle that we just it's getting worse and worse and we're not getting out of it. And the obesity you know, you hear the government going yeah, we've so many people are obese in the US and then they don't do anything to prevent it. They're not teaching us they're not teaching the school kids not to know what happened to the the food pyramid I grew up with long time ago. But I think it's got sugar at the top now. So yeah, we're doing everything backwards. You got to take care of yourself. You have to be your own advocate. You have to stay on top. There's so many good books, good documentaries, podcasts like yourself. Just get educated folks. It's it's a jungle out there.

Melissa Deally:

There's another great book to your mention of books. The radical remission, oh, yeah, by Dr. Kelly Turner. So if someone is interested in diving into the cancer healing journey, and just in all honesty, Dr. Kelly lays out nine steps that all of the people that she interviewed did in their healing journey. And when I read the book, I just went, you know, those nine steps are needed in every healing journey, not just to cancer healing journey. And again, it's completely in alignment with what you were sharing in the documentary around the lifestyle changes and the spirituality and, you know, the emotional detoxing in the mental detoxing that I was talking about earlier. All of that is a piece of it.

Megan Smith:

Right I wonder for her nine things lined up with my what I call it cornerstones have to go back and compare them. I read her book a long time ago, but I forgot what was in it that way, but that'd be interesting. If we both landed on the same things quite

Melissa Deally:

quite likely. So yeah, go back and check that out. So tell me what do you hope that both viewers and patients take away from your films both of them,

Megan Smith:

um, I wanted to leave people with hope and not fear and know that if you educate yourself beforehand, you won't be so deer in the headlights if you get you or a loved one gets the diagnosis. Because you have to have a an advocate. I didn't have an advocate actually when I got late last I'm always kind of on my own my, my husband like he froze on that one too. Oh, yeah, I think that's what I wanted. I wanted them to have hope and not fear in the end. Yeah, yeah.

Melissa Deally:

And that's beautiful. Because fear just trashes your immune system at a time when you need it the most. And hope lifts you out of that. And the power that we have, in our own mind, to envision what we want and actually create it is incredible. And many people don't understand that either. But when you're in that place of hope, and you're envisioning that, that's what you can achieve, versus if your focus is all on being sick. And the outcome of the diagnosis. That's what you get more of. So I always love to say focus on what you want. And it comes back to my favorite quote is by Henry Ford, whether you think you can or you think you can't, you're right. There you go. Do you think you can heal? Or is that story, one that says you can't?

Megan Smith:

Yeah, my my husband had he said, for 10 years, he was saying, Every man in my in my family dies at age 67 said that all the time and said Proctor, you've got to stop saying that. Oh, and at age 67, is when he got the cancer. Yeah. And he just one of his brothers died of cancer before he did the other one died, you know, afterwards, but they were all that around that same age. And he put it in his head. So I don't know. I just

Melissa Deally:

got the full body truth bumps when you said that. Yeah, he literally put it in his head. He kept speaking it. So he was envisioning it and putting it out, you know, saying it out loud. We get what we focus on, what are we focusing on? Right? I'm focusing on a long life of vitality and becoming a censure. How do you say centenarian, and you know, enjoying life fully to the end. And we can do that. Yeah. And it first starts with putting that focus out there. And then learning what you need to learn, so that you can be empowered in your health journey.

Megan Smith:

My father is going to be 100 years old in November. Congratulations, 99. I know. That's, that's all of you at home.

Melissa Deally:

Beautiful. That's exciting. And My why is my grandmother, who lived at home right to the end, she died at 101. And two weeks old. She lived by herself at home fully cognitively functioning right to the end and died in her sleep. That's fantast. That's what I want. And so that's what got when I got out of the corporate world. And I was guided into health and wellness. That was a big part of my story of comparing her life to my life and going well, I have good genes. And then something made me ask, Is that enough? And I realized I needed to do more, because my world was much more toxic than the world she

Megan Smith:

grew up in. Yeah, exactly. And that's why I needed

Melissa Deally:

to do more. So you've got great genes as well. You've had some health hiccups, that's put you on a path of changing the lifestyle of you know, I'm sure when you were globbing at Capitol Hill, that was a highly intense career. That's when you were living off McDonald's and not eating properly, et cetera, et cetera,

Megan Smith:

that did you help you? Exactly, you've

Melissa Deally:

changed all of that. Because now you understand. And you know, what you need to do for your longevity. And even more brilliant, you're sharing this with a huge audience with this documentary. So thank you. Thank you. Thank you for the work that you do, Megan, I really appreciate it. Thank you. And I will continue to do so. So I love to ask all of my guests. What does don't wait for your wake up call mean to you? Well, probably

Megan Smith:

you know what we've been talking about. Don't Don't wait for your you don't wait to get sick before you do the research. Because then it's harder. Then you're sitting there feeling sorry for yourself. And you have all these emotions, normal, you know, emotions. Do the research now, because we are being flooded with toxicity in our food, water air. So do it now.

Melissa Deally:

Beautiful, yes. And how can people get ahold of you if they would like to reach out. And also, if you can share your free gift, as well, again, we've already shared it once. Share that with the audience to make sure they all have access to it. So

Megan Smith:

it's on, it's free on YouTube right now. But you can't find it on YouTube. If you go to your YouTube, you have to go to my website to find it. I don't know why. We can only guess but it's called if you if you type in a new standard of care.com, a new standard of care.com It'll take you to my website and from there, no matter what platform I'm on, you'll be able to to punch the button and find the movie. It's free right now on YouTube. But once they probably will take it down. It's up to 10,000 views right now. And for all of a sudden, it's frozen. And the views are going up, I don't know what that's about, they're probably reviewing the hill, if I could bet. So I'll put it up on rumble, probably eventually. And then I will have to probably charge my my CPA is having a fit that I'm not making any money, I'm just spending it. So I'll just charge a little bit.

Melissa Deally:

We'll thank you for your big heart in putting this out for free for now for as long as you can for as many people to watch it as possible. So listeners, jump in now and watch it educate yourselves, save the link, because you will want to share this with other friends and family members as well. And any last words of wisdom that you would like to leave with the audience, Megan?

Megan Smith:

Oh, just don't lose hope. I know, we've talked about a lot of negative stuff. When you know, when you talk about cancer, you just kind of do but just don't lose hope. It's not. Cancer is not a death sentence. It really is not, you can reverse cancer. It's like one doctor said to me, my body made this cancer, I can reverse the cancer. And she did she had uterine cancer. And she reversed it herself by by doing nothing, mostly meditation. So it's reversible, don't you know it's a chronic disease, you have to stay on top of it. But it's not a doesn't have to be a killer unless you let it be. So just have been formed before you get a chronic disease, which a lot of us are getting, unfortunately.

Melissa Deally:

And I truly agree with that. So be informed. Don't lose hope. And seek out the people that can support you on your healing journey in the way that you want to be supported. Because I always love to say that chronic disease is not a life sentence. So very similar to what you've said there. So thank you so much, Megan, for coming on the show, and sharing your wisdom, your experiences, as well as providing this information to the general population. I really appreciate it.
