If you’re tired of living in pain or popping pills, and if you wish you had more options than surgery and pharmaceuticals, learn the original dance method for natural pain relief, through the Dancing with Pain® line of multimedia products, live events, and private coaching sessions. It’s a tool that’s available to you 24/7, and it’s accessible and doable for those who are bedridden or wheelchair bound.
Natural Pain Relief
In 2004, Loolwa Khazzoom discovered that by reconceptualizing dance, she could use it to heal herself. Over the next few years, she went from being bedridden to being able to bike 30 miles at a shot, pain-free. She went on to teach what she called the Dancing with Pain® method, discovering that it had a 96% rate of efficacy in treating a wide range of chronic pain conditions – including fibromyalgia, arthritis, and migraines.
The method went on to be featured in top media, including The New York Times and ABC News, and was endorsed by top pain specialists, including Martin Rossman MD and James Dillard MD. Now finally, science is catching up to Khazzoom’s discovery – with numerous peer-reviewed medical journals today proving that, yes, dance does heal pain.
Dance out Your Pain!
Whether you’re healing naturally from a chronic health condition or looking for self-care tools to augment your conventional medical care, Kitchen Pirates music, videos, online events, and private coaching sessions will provide the support you need.

Ultimately, this video series will help you transmuate your chronic health condition into a catalyst for an exhilarating new life!
The Problem with Rigid Diets
When Loolwa Khazzoom was diagnosed with thyroid cancer in 2010, she rejected surgery and instead radically altered her diet – cold-stopping the growth of the nodules in the process. Over the next five years, in the interest of doing whatever it took to heal completely, Khazzoom experienced a few culinary misadventures – including a month-long juice fast from which she nearly collapsed, and adoption of a raw vegan mindset that left her orthorexic. There are hidden perils in dogmatic protocols, Khazzoom realized, no matter how effective the core principles may be. What’s more, ease and play are just as important ingredients as rigor and discipline, when it comes to healing in general, and healthy eating in particular.
Play with Your Food
From the depths of this experience and wisdom, Khazzoom went on to develop Kitchen Pirates. It’s an intuitive, relaxed, and playful approach to a whole-foods, plant-based diet. Rather than throwing a book of recipes at you, Khazzoom expertly will guide you on the mindset, building blocks, and mix-and-match strategies that will make you confident and independent in the kitchen. As part of the process, you’ll enjoy original music, spontaneous dance, and a heaping scoop of fun.
Become a Kitchen Pirate!
You have a critical role to play in healing from cancer, and the linchpin of your healing may come from a hidden or unexpected place – revealing itself only when you reframe cancer as an opportunity for transformation. By helping you pan your lens wider and get creative in your process, Cancer Is My Engine music, videos, online events, and private coaching will inspire, empower, and expertly guide you through custom-designing your own cancer-healing adventure.
Cancer has a myriad of possible causes, depending on the individual. In the case of a farmer, the root cause may be pesticides in the fields. In the case of an abused woman, it may be adrenal depletion. In the case of a poor man, it may be malnutrition. In the case of a refugee, it may be unprocessed grief. The list goes on. In addition, these and other contributing factors may intersect with and compound each other. So while there is one word for the health condition, “cancer,” there may be an untold number of factors contributing to its physical expression – most of which are not asked about in medical exams, and are invisible to medical imaging and diagnostic tools.
Shift the Focus
Simply removing or burning a tumor, through surgical and pharmaceutical intervention, may temporarily get rid of a cancer mass while overlooking the source of the cancer. If the cancer source remains unaddressed, it may again, over time, produce another cancer. What’s more, the body may be in a weakened state from surgery and chemotherapy, and less able to heal from another round of cancer. To the contrary, when you approach cancer as an indicator that something in your life needs light, attention, love, and change, you turn cancer into an opportunity for awakening and transforming. In turn, you invite deep healing and wholeness into your Being – which is key whether you choose a holistic, conventional, or integrative approach.

This Music Is Medicine

Shaddai Chants recently launched the Ancestral Ways double album series, featuring original Iraqi Jewish prayers in their a cappella version, followed by improvisational vocals with crystal singing bowls and/or percussion. These albums will deepen your experience of global Jewish heritage, while cradling you in a state of wellbeing.
