Writer/Director/Producer Kelly Noonan and Producer Adam Schomer’s (Highest Pass) documentary takes us on a scientific and spiritual journey where we discover that our thoughts, beliefs, and emotions have a huge impact on our health and ability to heal. The latest science reveals that we are not victims of unchangeable genes, nor should we buy into a scary prognosis. The fact is we have more control over our health and life than we have been taught to believe.
This film will empower you with a new understanding of the miraculous nature of the human body and the extraordinary healer within us all.
HEAL includes notable names in science, spirituality and wellness such as Bruce Lipton, Deepak Chopra, Marianne Williamson, Michael Beckwith, Gregg Braden, Kelly Turner, Anita Moorjani, to mention a few.
Porchia met her client Elizabeth by chance, or synchronicity if you will, on the street in front of the UCLA Medical Building. “Elizabeth showed up for her first session the day she got her port inserted for chemo treatment. It was very scary to think about the poison she was receiving through a delivery device she had to carry on her shoulder 24/7 with a tube and port that went into her chest,” describes Porchia.
“To reduce worry and stress I had to help Elizabeth find a way to make friends with this potent cocktail she had to endure for six weeks,” Porchia explains further. “We came up with the name Chemosabe for her new shouldered friend and visualized Chemosabe’s ‘medicine’ targeting only the damaged cells in her body.”
Not knowing what the outcome would be for the same diagnosis that Farah Fawcette died from, Elizabeth was very brave and still focusing on helping others. She allowed Porchia to video their sessions together saying if her experience could help others going through cancer then it was worth documenting her whole process.There were other ups and downs during Liz’s treatment and Porchia was by her side for most of it, documenting as much as possible. When Elizabeth received her post treatment scan it showed No Evidence of Disease (NED). This day was a very tearful and joyful occasion as Liz made phone calls to family and friends with the good news. The two women celebrated with shots of wheat grass.
After Elizabeth achieved NED, Porchia decided to move forward with the idea of making Messengers of Hope documentary film on Elizabeth’s experience. Never having made a film before Porchia started reading books on film making, going to film maker networking meetings, asking questions and looking for people who could help her with the project for little to no compensation. It all seemed quite overwhelming to do. Then life got in the way of Porchia’s plans and the Messengers project got put on hold indefinitely.
Out of nowhere another synchronicity showed up. One of Porchia’s previous network outreaches introduced her to an experienced documentary film maker who was doing a project on healing for conscious cinema at Elevate Entertainment. Adam Schomer contacted Porchia and she remembered seeing his award winning Highest Pass documentary at the Topanga Film Festival 2011. Adam wanted to include a segment on healing cancer in his new film HEAL, and Porchia already had the perfect footage on the entire process of cancer from diagnosis, through treatment, to all clear results. How perfect a fit. Spirit and the guiding force in the Universe showing up again!Four years after diagnosis of stage IV cancer Elizabeth remains No Evidence of Disease (NED) and attributes much of her present wellness to the in-depth holistic healing and spiritual work she did with Porchia during and after her cancer treatment.
Dianne Porchia, (master degree spiritual psychology, diplomat mind-body medicine), lives and works in Topanga Canyon, California where she offers Porchia’s WISH™ concierge Life In Balance holistic wellness retreats and services.

HEAL taps into the brilliant minds of leading scientists, spiritual teachers and follows three people on actual high stakes healing journeys. Healing can be extremely complex and deeply personal, but it can also happen spontaneously in a moment. Through these emotional and inspiring stories, we find out what works, what doesn’t, and why.
