As a banking executive, Jennifer Payeur put in long hours and logged thousands of miles in the air. Meanwhile, she was raising four young children.

She led what seemed like a healthy, high-energy life.

“I was the one who was landing in California, going to Whole Foods, getting a bunch of fruits and vegetables. I kept them in my hotel room,” she says.

Then, a breast cancer diagnosis shook her world, sending her on an entirely different path.

Choosing Alternative Cancer Care

When Jenn was diagnosed in 2015, the cancer had already metastasized. In North Carolina, she lived near some of the nation’s top cancer centers and sought answers from multiple specialists. They all recommended the standard of care for this type of diagnosis: surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy.

But when Jenn tapped into her intuition, that course of treatment didn’t feel right to her.

“I really understood that cancer is an immune system issue and the treatments of the standard of care are further suppressing the immune system,” she says. “Something in my brain kind of kicked in and said, ‘Wait a minute, you know, I’ve got to start rebuilding my immune system and not focus on obliterating the cancer.’”

Instead, she would focus on bringing her body back into balance. Jenn chose to move forward with the minimal amount of surgery necessary. But first, she spent a few months preparing her body for the operation, and strengthening her immune system, with a mix of holistic treatments in California.

Jenn’s natural cancer protocol included IV-delivered high-dose vitamin C and glutathione. She also tried dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO), a substance that comes from trees that has been shown to suppress tumor growth.

She sat in hyperbaric oxygen chambers and exposed her body to high temperatures – called hyperthermia. The approach is said to damage cancer cells, but not healthy cells.

With a therapy called EBOO, or extracorporeal blood oxygenation and ozonation (EBOO), clinicians ran her own blood through a dialysis filter to clean it of impurities, then oxygenate it, before infusing it back in.

A Keto Diet for Cancer

After years as a vegetarian, Jenn began following a keto diet as outlined by Dr. Nasha Winters in the book, The Metabolic Approach to Cancer. The diet focuses on optimizing metabolic health by reducing sugar intake and encouraging low-carbohydrate, high-fat, nutrient-dense whole foods. The goal is to deprive cancer cells of their preferred fuel source: sugar.

Just as critical to healing, Jenn expanded her regular meditation practice. Much of it involved envisioning herself as already healed.

“A big part of my meditation practice was sending love to my body, which sounds very strange, but just sending love, sending good energy, and then literally seeing myself in the future, and imagining what I was doing and imagining fully healthy and strong, and my immune system strong and just pure vitality,” she says.

A Conservative Approach to Lymph Node Removal

When Jenn’s surgery date arrived a few months later, she felt her body was ready.

“We did all that stuff beforehand to get my body as healthy, and my immune system as strong as possible,” she says.

She talked with her surgeon about taking a conservative approach to removing lymph nodes to protect her lymphatic system.

“Again I said, ‘Wait a minute. That’s my garbage system. So if you take all that out, then how will I get toxic waste out of my body?’” Jenn recalls. “And so she ended up doubling the length of the surgery, and went in and looked at every lymph node. And she said if it was bigger than a grain of rice, she would take it. If it wasn’t, it would be fine. She ended up picking 3 versus 32.”

Following the surgery, she continued some of the holistic therapies. In time, her cancer markers were steadily improving.

However, she was still working and traveling. When her cancer markers ticked up again, she decided to quit her job. It wasn’t easy detaching from her long-time identity as a banking executive.

Plant Stem Cells for Cancer

Just as her cancer markers grew concerning, Jenn had learned about plant stem cells, or gemmotherapy. A friend’s husband, a doctor, had seen remarkable results with his own patients.

“They [plant stem cells] are known as drainers. So they drain toxins from the cell, the tissue and the organs,” she explains. “They strengthen the organs, and then they regenerate and rejuvenate the entire basically organism. So they bring vitality.”

When Jenn heard about plant stem cells the first time, she immediately had a physical reaction.

“The best way to describe it, it was like this energetic [thing]. I had goose bumps all over my body,” she recalls.

She took it as a sign that she was on the right track and wanted to learn more. She quickly planned to attend an event about the plant stem cells, and learned the owner of the company was planning to sell the business.

Again, Jenn had a powerful intuitive physical reaction to that news. She had no experience with the products yet, but felt strongly called to lead the company. Meanwhile, she began using the plant stem cells and noticed results quickly.

“I worked with them for two months, and then I went and got blood work, and all my cancer markers were normal,” she says.

“I didn’t have an expectation, but I had no idea what would happen,” she says of the stem cells. “They’ve really, in two months time, rebalanced.”

Tapping into Intuition

Today, Jenn remains energetic and cancer-free and looks.

“I look at least 10 years younger than I did back in 2,015. I have white in my eyes. I have a light in my eyes. I have vitality back,” she says.

These days, Jenn leads the plant stem cell company Nature Provides, which has helped countless individuals with all types of health struggles. The company has developed 40 complexes, or mixes of plant stem cells, that target certain health challenges, from allergies to detox to digestive and more.

Throughout her journey, and now, Jenn has relied on her intuition to guide her. She calls it “magic,” or her “inner guru.” How do you tap into your own inner guru?

“I think it starts with learning to be still. So you know, we are human beings, not human doings…” she says. “It takes a huge mindset shift, first of all. But the second thing is, it takes slowing down.”

Jenn’s life has taken a 180 and she couldn’t be more grateful.

“I still to this day believe that cancer was one of the best things that could have ever happened to me, because it changed my life,” she says. “And I believe that if I didn’t get cancer, I would have had something else, because my life was so out of balance.”
