WHATS WORKING FOR ME TODAY
I like many loved to eat. Fast food, ice cream, oh and don't even get me started on the diet pop! My favorite diet was the Protein Power Plan where I could eat as much meat as I wanted! That was heaven, and I lost weight! Only to have to come back of course with the first carb I put into my mouth! Then the cancer came back. I decided it was time to take matters into my own hands. With the given life expectancy of two to five years, I figured I had to fight like never before. I decided to educate myself. With the help of wonderful loving friends and family, I read, watched, and listened to books, dvds, and advice. I learned about baking soda from my friend Vern at phkillscancer.com. I drew inspiration from his site about the health benefits of Qigong, Meditation, and of course, breathing. From the dvd Cancer vs. Diet, which I enduringly refer to as cancer for dummies, I learned that each and every one of us has cancer cells in our bodies, but eliminate those cells before they become a problem. That in itself gave me comfort. If people everyday are flushing out their cancer cells, what do I have to do to flush mine? Dr. Sherman does a great job in explaining how to do just that through diet. I learned all about turning cancer on and off with diet in Forks over Knives and The China Study. These media resources have convinced me to take on a Vegan Lifestyle. Since my cancer is estrogen positive, I decided to go the full route and give up not only the meat but also the dairy. Since sugar feeds cancer, I gave that up too, along with all the whites; white flour, white rice, etc. I eat pretty close to a whole plant based food diet eating organic as often as possible. I do however, eat a serving or two of fish a week. I know this is not accepted by "true vegans", but the fish feels right for me so it is something that I chose to do for myself at this time. A chiropractic doctor who is very knowlegable about supplementation, who is also a cancer survivor, has taught me that the key to everything starts with digestion. If the liver isn't working right, toxins including cancer cells cannot be flushed out. So I use a liver supplement. That's the key to all this folks, you have to do what's right for you. You have to be your own advocate. If you feel the right path for you is medical only, then that is what you should do. If you feel it's nutrition only, then go for it. I personally do a little medical and a lot of nutrition encompassing the mind, body, and spirit. Along with my vegan lifestyle (including fish), supplementation, qigong, meditation, and praying I do go along with what my doctor says, but only after I research it and make sure it's right for me. Educate yourself. Chose what's right for you. Hold on tight to your faith. And don't forget to breathe!!!

Thank you Alison Doick! She bought me this incredible book by Kimberly Snyder called The Beauty Detox Solution. This book tells you how to nourish your body to be at it's best. I highly highly recommend it! The recipes are awesome and so much of what she says makes so much sense. Here is an example. The Gorilla is one of the strongest animals. His digestive tract is very long so it takes awhile for him to digest food. God gave him molars to chew. He is a vegetarian! If he were to eat meat, it would go rancid in that long digestive tract. The tiger has a very short digestive tract and sharp teeth for tearing meat. He is a meat eater. We are made like the gorilla but eat like the tiger! That's just one example of the powerful things she writes about that makes you think! I have said from the get go that I truly believe my digestion was a huge contributor to my cancer. When I was only eliminating my food once or twice a week, I couldn't get rid of the toxins in my body. Remember, everyone has mutated cells in their body, but they eliminate them before they turn cancerous. She has a recipe in the book that I will share in my recipe section called "glowing green smoothie". This smoothie helps me get rid of my toxins daily!! And it's all natural! Please Please check out this book and recommend it to your family and friends. Let's prevent cancer from occurring!!!
