The Secret To Healthy Breasts

Dr. Ben Johnson, M.D, D.O, NMD
From the hit Transformational movie “The Secret”

Take advantage of this once in a lifetime opportunity and get answers to the following questions and learn the Secret to Healthy Breasts!

  • Why is Breast cancer on the rise?
  • What role do my emotions play in breast disease?
  • Can mamograms be dangerous to my health?
  • What are thermograms?
  • What do I do if I find a lump in my breast?
  • Breast biopsies – are they a good for me or the kiss of death?And much more!

Dr. Ben Johnson M.D, N.M.D is a complementary and alternative medicine physician. He was clinical director of the Immune Recovery Clinic in Atlanta , (an alternative cancer clinic) and is the founder of the International Cancer Foundation, a non-profit organization which funds cancer research and treatment in non-traditional (herbs, minerals, and frequency) therapies. He is also the Chief Executive Officer of BIOMEDICA RESEARCH Inc., and the Chairman of the Board of the Healing Codes. His major area of interest is the immune system, and he devotes most of his time to researching and designing recovery protocols for cancer and chronic fatigue patients.

As a renowned specialist in the prevention and cure of breast cancer, Dr. Johnson has examined over 20,000 women performing biopsies, mastectomies and treating women naturopathically with alternative therapies. In his effort to cure disease, he realized that a major obstacle to healing was deep-seated emotion/spiritual issues which kept patients from successful recovery. The Healing Codes mechanism became the answer to healing the emotional pictures that blocked full recovery. Never before had he experienced a therapy which allowed the autonomic nervous system to normalize in a matter of minutes, allowing the body to begin the healing process it was designed to perform. His invaluable insights recorded on the life changing movie “The Secret” will be available in depth at Diva Day II and a special book will be previewed at Diva Day II titled “The Secret to Health: Breast Wisdom”.

Undress for Success

with Mary Taylor

Peel away the layers of accumulated fear and insecurity that hold you back.

The message from advertising, the workplace, our families – even inspirational speakers – tells us that to have the life we want, we must buy another product, take another course, acquire a new skill. In other words, we must add something to our inadequate selves. Mary Taylor, however, shows how stripping away our fears and changing our attitude can bring us a more satisfying life.

While Mary entertains us with colorful and unusual stories from her past career as an exotic dancer, she gives us three lessons we all can use:

No one ever stops being afraid – the fearless just do what they have to do despite their fear. The two biggest primal fears are speaking in public and being naked in public. Mary has overcome them both, but you won’t have to take up stripping to conquer your fears.

Attitude is all you need. The world of exotic dancing was dominated by large-breasted blondes while she was dancing, but petite, dark-haired Mary conquered her audiences with a massive display of ATTITUDE. Mary will show you how your attitude can create some winning performances of your own.

All experience is relevant. Mary put her Tupperware and exotic dancing experience together to create her “Peel and Play” home parties, bringing the art of seduction to women in their own homes. She believes that everyone has a core of an idea gained from some life experience, no matter how unusual, that can be turned into a profitable business or benefit a worthy cause.

You Are What you Believe

with Lisa Sidorowicz, M.A, B.Ed

Certified Practitioner & Teacher of Core Belief Engineering

Everything you do, think or feel is a reflection of your beliefs, many of which were created when you were too young to realize the impact they would have on your life. Out-dated beliefs can hold you back, triggering fear, anger, guilt, or withdrawal-usually when you least want it.

Join psychotherapist Lisa Sidorowicz for an inspiring and empowering exploration of the power and significance of your beliefs. Learn about Core Belief Engineering, a cutting-edge transformational belief-change therapy that resolves inner conflict, restores inner harmony, and results in greater confidence, self-worth, and personal choice.

  • Discover the one thing that determines your ultimate level of success in life
  • Understand why awareness is not always enough to create the changes you so desire
  • Discover an extremely effective results-based technology that can re-engineer even the deepest held limiting beliefs that are holding you back
  • Learn about why you sometimes feel pulled in opposite directions within yourself and how to replace inner conflict with inner peace
  • Gain a new appreciation for the ultimate power of your mind and your thoughts


Lisa Sidorowicz has been a Core Belief Engineering psychotherapist in private practice since 1998. She is an instructor of The College of Core Belief Engineering, and is a sought after speaker and workshop facilitator.

Lisa works with individuals to identify and change limiting, outdated core belief systems hardwired in the subconscious at the root of depression, anxiety, fear, helplessness, uncontrollable reactions, low self-worth, codependency, phobias, self-destructive behaviours, etc. In day-long sessions, she assists individuals to change subconscious belief systems they no longer agree with, so that their subconscious and conscious minds can work in harmony to create the life they choose today. Lisa is continually in awe of the transformational changes her clients experience. Most people report dramatic change and improved self-esteem within just a few sessions. In addition to having their original problem solved, people enjoy expanded consciousness, greater confidence, and more self-worth, trust, respect and love.

Lisa finds it immensely rewarding to help individuals restore their physical health and well-being by permanently resolving the psychological components (both conscious and subconscious) of physical illness. She has a particular interest in helping women heal gynecological issues, including fibroids, polycystic ovarian syndrome, fertility challenges, etc.

Lisa holds a Bachelor of Arts Honours and a Masters Degree in English Literature from Queen’s University and a Bachelor of Education from the University of Toronto. She was trained and certified in Core Belief Engineering by its originator, Elly Roselle. Lisa lives with her husbandin Oakville, Ontario.
