The first time I was really exposed to Cancer was some years ago when my Auntie was diagnosed with Breast cancer. It came as a great shock, she was a healthy person, and you know, you never think it will happen to someone close to you.
But more and more it is… and statistics very clearly show that the diagnosis rate of cancer has been increasing at an astonishing rate.
Well, my Auntie did go through chemotherapy. But she also changed her diet, and switched to a purely vegan diet. My dad has long been a strong supporter of a diet that cuts out meat, dairy, and promotes fresh fruits, vegetables, soya, whole grains for a long time.
In short- she was cured of cancer.
Perhaps the chemo helped. BUT one thing was clear- she actually looked amazing- fresh, healthy, happy. and she continues to do so today- I would say fresher even than before! The diet really changed how she felt inside and how she looked on the outside.
I was forced to turn my attention to health again last year when my fiancé was diagnosed, not with cancer, but with a serious condition called with Diverticulitis. They don’t know exactly what caused it, (apparently) but it is almost certainly related to the food we eat (lack of fibre), and is made worse by smoking (he was smoking 40-60 cigarettes per day at that time). After a grueling time in surgery- they removed 12 inches of his colon, and he had a temporary stoma for over 3 months. It was a seriously awful experience for us both and for all our friends and family. He was in extreme pain and discomfort for a while. Diverticulitis is a condition rarely seen in patients under the age of 60, but is becoming increasingly common.
Since he had the reversal procedure and is back to normal, we’ve both been watching our health more and will continue to do so. But the lure of fast food & MSG containing foods is always there. Adverts are everywhere. Unhealthy foods are faster, cheaper, easier and tempting… until you start to eat healthily and notice the change you feel inside! Organic foods are expensive and harder to come by. It takes a little more thought and dedication, but is worth.. well, your life.
Basically, the food and pharmaceutical industries are billion dollar making industries, that directly fund the members of Government placed there to “regulate” the food and health industries themselves. So, in short that means there is virtually no regulation, and that they have every vested interest in keeping you dumb (and in the end- dead!!!)
They profit too much to care about your well- being.
So the choice, is ours :)
To stay healthy, avoid terminal disease and strengthen your immune system, here are are a few general pointers that tons of resources can account to. But please do read up and do some research yourself for clarification –>
- Avoid foods containing MSG- and if you don’t, at least save your children- who are less brainy, and focused as a result of it! Please see–> http://topdocumentaryfilms.com/beautiful-truth/
-Cut down, or better- eliminate dairy (huge link with breast and prostate cancer in particular- Please see–> http://foodismedicine.podomatic.com/entry/2012-02-01T00_00_00-08_00
-Eat lots of fresh organic fruits and vegetables (and juice them for great effect too)
-Eat small amounts, often. Easier on the system
-If possible- eat locally grown foods that are ‘in season’
-Cut down on meat, eliminate if you have cancer already- and if you eat fish, try to eat the smaller fish which have a lower concentration of the poisonous- infertileity inducing- Mercury.
A personal account on health-
Well, much to my annoyance as a child I was banned from white bread, fizzy drinks, sweets, dairy milk etc. – but today I am grateful. Touch wood- I have barely ever been in the hospital, (except to be born), and even today- I think it’s been more than 2 years since I had a day off work due to flu or any other ailment.
I am grateful every day for my health… and account it to my diet- control- freak Father- who made sure that I eat healthily, exercising regularly, and managing stress- by following my passion and laughing a lot!
We cannot avoid death. But we can certainly make the living part enjoyable, and avoid a lot of health related illnesses.

I am not a doctor, just passing on information I’ve learned from others.
That might be our only source of hope for the time being.
Diet is the truthful cure that doctors sadly don’t (currently) prescribe.
Stay strong, healthy and happy!
