Guest Profile: Brenda Michaels

Brenda Michaels

Co-Host of "Conscious Talk" and author of THE GIFT OF CANCER - A Miraculous Journey to Healing.

Brenda Michaels is an inspiring, courageous and remarkable individual who has triumphed against all odds many times in her life. She survived cancer three times over the course of twenty years, beginning at the age of 26. It was during her third incidence with cancer that Brenda heard the call to dramatically change her life, which set her off on a healing quest. When her doctors-one the Head of Oncology at a respected medical organization-recommended chemotherapy, she refused. Instead, she decided to focus on wellness using natural treatment methods while embracing her disease as a teacher instead of an enemy. Now, over 12 years later, she is cancer-free and full of life.

Brenda has dedicated her life to helping others face personal life and health challenges. She currently gives keynote speeches empowering, inspiring and enlightening people on how to live a more passionate and healthy life physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. Her experience with natural, alternative methods and the mind, body, spirit connection is the backdrop for all her messages.

An early achievement and sign of her commitment to her life was her participation in the 1988 "Mrs. California-American Pageant". Just two months after losing her first breast, she competed in and was awarded the Pageant title of "Most Inspirational." A pioneer in her own right, she was the only person using alternative treatment methods to be selected by the American Cancer Society (ACS) for inclusion in their CBS television special "Profiles in Survival". Brenda is also a nationally recognized speaker and participated in the American Cancer Society's, "Celebrities Against Cancer" program drawing national attention to the merits of natural treatments and healing.

Brenda's passion to communicate her story made her the focus of the 1990 news special on breast cancer, which aired on KCBS-TV. In 1992, she was a guest on the Dr. Dean Edell show discussing "Laughter as the Best Medicine" and, in 1995, appeared on the "Gabrielle" show and on "The Other Side". Brenda has also pursued her career as an actress appearing in such films as True Lies, Three Men and A Little Lady and the Accidential Tourist, and in commercials nationwide. She has also co-hosted and produced "Healthstyles", a cable TV show dealing with health issues and healing in the nineties, as well as co-hosting "Living Healthy" a radio show committed to bring forth cutting edge information and guests in the areas of alternative health and healing. Dedicated to sharing what she has learned on her journey, Brenda's forthcoming book, "The Final Messenger ... A Spiritual Journey Toward Healing" passionately details her struggles and victories beyond cancer.

Her incredible commitment, sincerity and enthusiasm for life lend a very powerful and unique approach to her performance as a radio talk show host. A true inspiration, Brenda creates instant intimacy with her audiences and is the catalyst that raises our recognition of the powerful, magnificent potential in all of us.

Her book, "The Gift of Cancer" is due to be published September, 2014 by Sky Horse Publishing.
