Jamie Holmes was diagnosed with Stage 3 cancer in 2012. She knew that she was going to treat her body holistically and see the cancer as a symptom of her whole body being in disarray. And today’s episode features her remarkable healing story, as told to Dr. Jockers.

Jamie is a Canadian aerialist and dancer, and during her healing process, she dived into the world of natural healing. Ten years later and she is now healed and still just as passionate about the power of natural healing and the wonderful capabilities of the body when it comes to health optimization.

She has also written a book about her cancer recovery, aptly titled Carrots. Coffee. Cancer. Learn about Gerson therapy, using castor oil to flush out toxins, Jamie’s juice regimen, and some of the underlying contributing causes of melanoma as Dr. Jockers and Jamie trade stories and insights.

This is a truly inspirational interview for anyone who’s dealt with cancer or may be struggling with it now. Please share this episode if you find it to be of value or if you know of someone who may benefit from hearing Jamie’s story.


“I also know it’s a little controversial, it’s not the mainstream, people think it’s ‘woo-woo’ and all that kind of stuff. And especially after the pandemic, I don’t care. This is my story. Take it or leave it. Whoever wants or needs to hear it, will. And if you don’t like it, it’s fine by me.
