Welcome and Site Navigation


I am a mom, aunt to 19 nephews and nieces, chef, recipe developer, writer, past Cafe owner, organic veg grower, health advocate and knitter.

At the behest of my daughter I created this blog to help others discover what makes us sick, which foods heal, and all options available for reversing inflammatory conditions like Cancer, Heart Disease and Type II Diabetes.

Clinical studies are now more frequently initiated comparing the power of foods and supplements versus pharmaceutical drugs in the prevention or curing of disease.

Numerous recent findings show that in some cases the former perform as well as… if not better than… pharmaceuticals, without any of the negative, toxic side effects.mortar & pestle, marble


You can greatly improve your health, and as a bonus achieve your ideal weight without having to make that your focus. just by

  1. eliminating simple carbs and processed foods, 
  2. increasing the Super Foods listed,
  3. taking the right Supplements based on 5 simple blood tests,
  4. and making use of Complimentary Therapies like acupuncture, massage and meditation.

There may be a time to consider traditional, more invasive therapies and treatment, but initially you may wish to consider less toxic and less risky options, even as an adjunct to such treatment, and the very least to lessen known side effects.

A number of foods and spices are funded for study by the National Institutes of Health, based on success with these foods in the ‘Complimentary Medicine Field.

Cinnamon, Flavonoids, and Vitamin D3 are examples of some of the foods that have shown in clinical trials incredible healing abilities.

Some of the findings have shown that certain SPICES are just as effective as Chemotherapy in eradicating certain cancers:spices1

  2. Tocotrienol  (Vitamin E) Combination Therapy results in Synergistic Anticancer Response:  Sylvester PW, Wali VB, Bachawal SV, Shirode AB, Ayoub NM, Akl MR. College of Pharmacy, University of Louisiana at Monroe
  3. Vitamin D Reduces Angiogenesis: van den Bemd and Chang, 2002

My journey began in 2009, and is explained on the ‘Aboutpage.

It transformed my body, my priorities, my understanding of food, my diet and happily my health.

Many years of research and study have expanded my knowledge of nutrition and food choices in ways I couldn’t have imagined, and uncovered the shameful actions of a ‘profit-at-any-cost’ food industry with the sole aim of making us addicted to the nutrient deficient junk food that is making us sicker and sicker.

I know how I felt then, and I know how I feel now. 

The damage dead, overly-processed foods cause to our very tissue, and the potential inflammation (i.e. heart disease, diabetes and cancer) they stimulate just isn’t worth it.

All the recipes I post have healing qualities and are approved for diets that prevent the progress of disease, and in many instances, aid the healing process.

For those considering traditional Cancer treatment:

It is CRITICAL that you support your body before, during and after Chemo and Radiation by taking the right supplements during each phase.

Many patients have complications from the toxicity of the drugs and are unable to complete the full course, therefore the whole treatment.

Many deaths are associated with a person’s diagnosis, when in fact it is the toxicity of  the treatments that are the cause.

Do your homework. 

Talk to a qualified Nutritionist who works with cancer patients, or CONTACT ME for a consultation or a referral.

Under the advisement of a Nutritional Oncologist, you can:

1) weather the toxicity of chemo drugs much better

2) aid the treatment to be more effective

3) experience fewer or less severe side effects (I am a living example)

My best to you, in Good Health!

  1. I had no idea you offered so much info & so many ways to use your site, plus the extra recipes. I did not have cancer, however I am plagued with several severe & chronic illnesses which have almost crippled me, plus something like MS or Lupus; even though I quit eating or drinking most foods, drinks, or edible items which might harm people. Still, I keep getting “sick”.

    I am soaking up info from your blog site, plus have ordered a book by Terry Wahls, who has researched MS, being reduced to getting around in a wheelchair, from an able person with poor prognosis, to now. She walks, ia active in sports, and works as normal now. I believe she is a nurse. Her research led her to the or a paleo diet, then her own partial paleo diet. She recommends the paleo diet for quicker recovery of health.

    I bet you already know this. I do not know, but I believe I saw mention of her through your newsletters or blogs. I do not know correct computer talk, but for now I must concentrate on getting my printer fixed, and learning enough and remembering enough to be able to cook & eat with your info, and with hers as well. I must get as well as I am able to be!

    So far, for more than 6 years I have been struggling with many doctors & others who think I am losing my mind. They have too much trust in doctors & medications! They tell me I read material written to make someone else wealthy, and rip me of any money I have. (I no longer am able to work & have no salary. Just a small bit of social security), but I know some of the health news is not news that will do me much good. I do lots of research, and did it also before I became so disabled with bone problems & disabling pain.

    I have to believe in my goals, and the ability to reach my goals. I am so glad to have resources like yours to inspire me & keep my spirits high? It is also awesome to read your history & know of your success & the great amount of heart for you to share your life with others & to help them/us.

    Thank you & warm regards,

    Georgia carman

    • Georgia, Thank you deeply for sharing your situation. I am touched by your remarks and I wondered if you have ever consulted with a Nutritionist. I can highly recommend one if you like, to have a phone consult with.
      Diet/supplementation and positive imagery are, to me, 60% of a person’s healing power.
      Do let me know if you’d like that referral and I can email you.

      Much, much love… Hoda
