The Strength of Women: Mother’s Day 2023

Never underestimate the strength of women.

Are you a woman? Are you a mother?

You are more powerful than you can even imagine.


I’ve always considered myself to be pretty strong. Suffering for years with chronic illness that traditional medicine can’t solve makes you strong.

I come from generations of strong women who were not limited by the judgments of others or the societies in which they grew up.

But it wasn’t until my daughters were born that I understood how strong I was. And the strength of women everywhere.

It wasn’t until my world expanded beyond my own past, present, and future that I truly understood the power within me and how to wield it.

As I watch my daughters grow up, I fight not only for my health and my family’s health but for a healthier planet so that other women’s daughters have a fighting chance at health.

I fight for a healthier world that I want to help build so that my daughters don’t have to be the only ones in their college graduating class who are free from chronic illness.

I fight for other women’s daughters and sons and their right to thrive because I know that within me is the capacity to do whatever it takes to protect my children from harm.

“Sometimes the strength of motherhood is greater than natural laws.”

– Barbara Kingsolver

I fight for a less toxic world with each passing day instead of a more toxic one.

Now more than ever we have a collective responsibility to look out for each other. We know there are interests in this world who are focused on bringing harm.

We must look out for each other, knowing that harm lurks around almost every corner, both for ourselves and our children.

This determination gives me unspeakable strength to overcome my own health challenges, my emotional challenges, attacks from naysayers, and any other obstacle I face so that I can stand up strong and offer healing tools and knowledge to everyone around me.

Nothing will stop me from doing the work that I do, and nobody will silence me.


When my two oldest daughters were young, we were at a park with a large playground.

I noticed a young girl who was clearly in distress, so I went to her with my two daughters, sat with her, and took her hand.

She said, “I can’t find my mommy, and I’m scared.”

I told her I would help her find her mom and that I wouldn’t leave her until we did. I introduced her to my daughters, asked her if she’d like to play with them, and asked for her mother’s name.

While my daughters sat with the little girl, I began asking others to help me find this woman and we began shouting her name.

Before long, we found the girl’s mother, who was also looking for her daughter. They had gotten separated.

Could I have walked away from that little girl, who was clearly in need of help? No. My instincts would not allow it. What if my children had been in that situation? We have a collective responsibility to look out for each other, and this instinct is hard-wired for women.

Women have a hormonal response to observing a child in distress – it’s physiological.

When parents with young children drop off their toddlers at daycare or pre-school and the toddler starts crying and thrashing to stay with their mother or father, other moms begin to get emotional. We can’t help it; that instinct to empathize with children is built into our emotional DNA.

It’s similar to when women see a newborn baby. Our hearts open up, we get a rush of oxytocin, and we melt. We recognize and respond to the collective joy of new life.

There is a collective instinct that women have to care for their communities. It is not just about protecting “me and mine”; it’s about “we and ours”.

Where women lack this instinct, it has often been forcibly manipulated out of them.

The intent of darker forces in this world is to convince women that they are powerless and to manipulate them into forgetting their natural tendency to connect with their communities. It serves darkness when women forget who they truly are – powerful and connected.

Have you heard the stories of mothers who miraculously lifted vehicles off of their children?

These are not urban legends, these are true stories. And there is a term for it: hysterical strength.

Click here to read about Angela Cavallo, who lifted a Chevy Impala off her 15-year-old son in 2013 when she was in her late 50s. She attributed her superhuman strength to prayer.

Or read this BBC article about other examples of hysterical strength, like Lydia Angyiou, who fought one-on-one with a 700-pound polar bear and survived to protect her sons.

When women are most challenged, we discover strength we didn’t know we had. “Hysterical strength.” A strength that comes from hysteria – from panic – and an instinctual determination to do whatever it takes to overcome.

All women have this strength within them.

In his blog post describing the true causes and healing protocols for ALS, Anthony William, the Medical Medium ®, describes the powerful will of women to survive.

“Although men have often been considered stronger than women in various ways throughout history when it comes to battling illness, women have consistently demonstrated a stronger will to live than their male counterparts.

Women possess a mighty will to survive, grow stronger, and bear the elements. This fiery will helps women bear the weight of a diagnosis, symptoms, and conditions better than most men.

This is especially true in cases where there is a sense of hopelessness already attached to the label.”

– Anthony William, the Medical Medium

Women are unique in our ability to carry burdens that often go unspoken and still give to those around us. We find a way to ensure that we and our children thrive or get as close as possible to thriving, despite massive adversity.

This Mother’s Day, I want to inspire all of the women out there who feel weak, broken, underestimated, and wronged.

I want to light a fire within the heart of every woman who feels defeated, small, or betrayed and remind her that she is stronger than she knows.

And that within her is a life-changing, world-changing power that she can tap into whenever she chooses.


In his book Liver Rescue, Medical Medium shares the following quote on page 189.

“If the inherited poisons we receive from our forebears were identified, cataloged, and documented properly…every mom on the planet would have a new cause to fight for. Moms would truly make change happen. Knowing that these industrial mistakes were the reality behind her baby’s emergency room visits and nights with no sleep, each mom would demand that the rightful sources be held accountable. There would be hell to pay.

Medical research and science want no part of unleashing that. It would be their greatest nightmare because…the medical industry would be held accountable to moms and babies for the first time in history.

– Anthony William, the Medical Medium

It’s easy to feel scared in this world. I completely understand when friends or family talk about feeling hopeless about the state of things. We worry about our children and grandchildren and the world they will inherit.

In truth, industries are the ones who are scared. We are the ones who are powerful. Click To Tweet

As Medical Medium says, if every mother on the planet knew that her children’s suffering was caused by deliberate actions and negligence, this world would change. That’s how strong we are.

This is why corrupt industries and organizations spend billions to hide their secrets – they don’t want to face a worldwide mob of angry mothers.

“Because if the truth were out there about these pathogens and how they’re keeping us sick today, the leaders of the industries would be in a lot of trouble. There would be hell to pay, especially for the moms whose babies have suffered. The truth would cause a revolt and an uprising.”
– Medical Medium, Cleanse to Heal, pg 64


When I was in high school, around 17 years old, our bus stopped at our house on a cul de sac. The bus could only leave our cul de sac by backing up in reverse.

After leaving the bus one day, I was heading up to my house and heard a scream. A five-year-old girl had gotten trapped under the bus’ back tire as it backed out of our cul de sac.

I started yelling at the driver, but he couldn’t hear me, and I had to slam on the windows to get him to stop and pull forward.

The young girl’s arm was broken, so I began screaming for help and eventually ran down the street to find her family, which I did. We found her siblings and got an ambulance to take her to a hospital.

I could not abandon this child who needed protection and then help to get emergency treatment. It’s not a conscious decision – it’s instinct.

This instinct reflects female compassion and empathy, which is a strength, not a weakness. It’s vital for human survival.

We do not survive alone. For thousands of years, humanity thrived in community. Many ancient cultures had female elders, leaders, and hunters.

The female instinct to think of the collective before the individual is a survival tactic that served previous generations, and it’s an instinct we have been trained to forget.

It’s time to remember who we are as women and to shape the world with our vision of collective responsibility rather than continue to allow the current paradigm to separate us.

The “divide and conquer” tactics, first described in writing by the British imperial colonizers in India, cannot influence communities who instinctively know that they are stronger together and that to divide is to lose power and vitality.

It’s time to reclaim our heritage.

Homeopathy For You And Your Family


“Motherhood is near to divinity. It is the highest, holiest service to be assumed by mankind.”

—Howard W. Hunter

Don’t lose heart no matter how dark the world appears at times.

We are all fatigued by the level of deception and corruption playing out on the world stage at this time in history.

That does not mean we have to feel small or helpless.

“A warrior believes in an end she can’t see and fights for it. A warrior never gives up. A warrior fights for those weaker than herself. It sounds like motherhood to me.”

—Kristin Hannah

Let’s remember and celebrate what truly makes us strong: our connection to each other, our connection to our beautiful Earth – the Earthly Mother, and our connection to the higher power within each of us.

When we stand together, we are extremely powerful. Click To Tweet

When we choose to reach out and support each other when some of us have been abandoned or discriminated against, we break the bonds placed on us by certain forces of this world who seek to keep women down.

Love destroys all bondage, and the love that mothers have for their children is the most powerful in existence. Women’s love for each other – a love borne of solidarity and shared experience – dissolves illusions of separation.

Separation is a tool that those in power use to make us feel weak. Division and discord are strategies used by those who seek to undermine health. We are stronger than that.

“Even when times are tough and an outside observer can’t see what binds a mother to a child, deep in that mother’s heart and deep in that child’s soul, an unbreakable bond exists.”
– Medical Medium, Liver Rescue, pg 221

We can choose not to allow our trust in ourselves and each other to be broken due to lies that come from a small group of people sitting around a boardroom table or inventing false social media narratives.

Our strength comes from something bigger. Our strength grows out of compassion. Our strength is rooted in our willingness to reach beyond ourselves and build bonds of strength and healing.

Nothing is more powerful than a community built on trust; women are incredible community builders. It’s in our DNA. And the first community we all experience is the community of our families.

Mothers are the original community builders and teachers of compassion and strength. Click To Tweet

I celebrate all of you mothers out there and the women who are fighting daily to rebuild their health and inspire those around them to do the same.

“Whatever else is unsure in this stinking dunghill of a world, a mother’s love is not.”

– James Joyce


“You’re still here. And with the life ahead of you, you can choose to be part of a powerful healing movement.”
– Medical Medium, Cleanse to Heal, pg 428

This year, I hope to shine brighter than any year before. I hope to connect with more people than ever before to build connections that can truly change the world.

I hope to show what a woman can do when she has vision, support from her community, and God-given strength.

I hope to show my daughters that on the hardest days, I will cry, and on the best days, I will dance.

I want my daughters to see that a woman’s strength comes from being her authentic self in all circumstances and that there is grace in tears and laughter.

I believe that women and mothers can change the world. And that our most powerful tool is radical love for each other, which gives us immense strength. Hysterical strength – strength that can lift cars, fight polar bears, and transform societies.

The love of a mother is anything but passive. Click To Tweet

This Mother’s Day, let’s recognize not only the gentle qualities of our mothers but also the deep well of strength they drew on every day to provide us with the best possible life.

And let’s go out and change the world, each in our way, every day.


“Motherhood: All love begins and ends there.”
– Robert Browning
