I am a chef, recipe-developer, past Cafe owner/caterer, a mom, aunt to 19 nephews and nieces, creator of natural personal products.
In 2011, after a personal transformation through cancer, and with the encouragement and the help of my darling daughter, I started this blog. I wanted to help others navigate through the complex, and at times frustrating journey from illness to good health… based on a wide range of proven options…with a strong focus on Cancer.
What makes us sick, which foods heal, and proven options to reverse inflammatory conditions like Cancer, Heart Disease and Type II Diabetes, are discussed here.
Clinical studies are now more frequently initiated comparing the power of foods and supplements to toxic pharmaceutical drugs in the prevention or curing of disease. In some cases the former perform as well as… if not better than… pharmaceuticals, without any of the negative side effects.
You can greatly improve your health, and as a bonus achieve your ideal weight without having to make it your focus, by
- eliminating simple carbs, fried and processed foods from your diet
- increasing the Super Foods and Spices featured here
- taking targeted Supplements (since our food no longer contains the nutrients it used to) based on 6 simple blood tests
- making use of therapies like acupuncture, massage and meditation.
There may be a time to consider traditional, more invasive therapies and treatment for illness, but initially you may wish to consider less dire options, even as an adjunct to such treatment. At the very least use them to lessen side effects.
My journey began in 2009, and is explained on the ‘About’ page.
It transformed my body, my priorities, my understanding of food, my diet and happily my health for the better.
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 which commercial, processed foods cause to our very tissue, and the potential inflammation (i.e. heart disease, diabetes and cancer) they stimulate just isn’t worth the lab created flavors we’ve come to consider as food.
All the recipes posted 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 mix of 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.
