"Let your food be your medicine and your medicine be your food." Hippocrates - the father of modern medicine.
Within the last few days I have received bad news from two friends. Their husbands got the dreaded diagnosis - cancer! I have another friend battling for her life from the same thing. I, like you, have lost loved ones to cancer. It makes me angry...and sad. It simply should not be. Cancer is a disease of affluence. And I'm sick and tired of it snatching too many beautiful people from this planet far too soon.
Estimates suggest that over 1.7 million people will receive a cancer diagnosis in 2018. An estimated 609,640 will die from the disease this year. It is the second leading cause of death in America. National cancer expenditures exceeded $147 billion in 2017 and is expected to rise.
Each time I hear of someone I know getting diagnosed with this horrible disease, I am saddened. I become more committed to getting the message of prevention out to as many people as possible. Is everything within our power to prevent this disease? Of course not. There are things beyond our control for sure - environmental factors, exposure to toxins, etc. Yet estimates suggest that 2/3 of cancer is preventable with diet & lifestyle.
Human nature tends to procrastinate - putting off until tomorrow what we should do today. I've certainly been guilty of doing that. The older I get, the less I feel I can put off healthy lifestyle choices. I feel unhealthy choices quicker in my body than when I was young. Their effects are more dramatic.
The reality is that none of us can afford to procrastinate when it comes to self care. Health challenges are visiting younger & younger people in today's world. Gone are the days of ignoring your body and getting away with it. There is simply too much stacked against us. If we want to live to a ripe old age in health we have to pay attention now.
I have helped people with late stage cancers overcome the disease with no chemotherapy or radiation. They used food as medicine as Hippocrates suggested. It is a beautiful thing to watch someone get their life back with no negative side effects!
I share with you my cancer resources in hopes that you will be proactive and work towards prevention. It is much easier to prevent cancer than it is to cure!
If you have already received a cancer diagnosis, I offer resources to guide you in a holistic, natural approach should that be your choice. I recognize the decision is not an easy one for you. I encourage you to take a prayerful approach to that decision. God has the solutions and answers to your questions. I am here to support & guide you in any way I can. There are many qualified health professionals to help as well.
Also realize that your thoughts determine your life, so commit to mastering your thoughts. It is so important in a situation like this. You must slay the giant of fear!
If you don't take care of your body, where are you going to live? It is the vehicle that carries you around on planet Earth. Make you a priority and do the right things for your health. It is worth it, I promise!
I wish you the best!
