In this episode you'll discover the more I study and talk to people who have had cancer, the more I learn that there is hope for a healthy, happy, and fulfilling life post diagnosis. And no matter how you choose to approach treatment (conventional or alternative or a combination!) diet can play a profound role in supporting your body's ability to recover.
Which is why I couldn't be more excited to share my little chat with one of our own subscribers, Mary Brown! Mary was origianlly diagnosed with ovarian cancer in August of 2011. Following conventional therapy, Mary was then diagnosed a second time a few years later.
Clearly, Mary has had quite a journey but today she is healthy and CANCER-FREE!
And given the fact that ovarian cancer kills 15,000 women each year and is the most lethal gynecological cancer, Mary's story is truly remarkable. Fortunately for you, Mary shares the diet and lifestyle strategies she believes were instrumental in her recovery in today's transformational podcast.
You'll hear about her incredible story, her dietary approach, the practitioner she thinks EVERYONE diagnosed with cancer should know about and her favorite recipe! All packed into a delightful, powerful and inspiring 30 minute chat!
At the age of 27 Andrew was diagnosed with an Anaplastic Astrocytoma, an incurable form of brain cancer. After following the standard treatment protocol, Andrew was left feeling sick and depressed by his lack of recovery and options. But he knew there had to be another options and was determined to find a better way.
And find another way, he DID.
Today Andrew is in full remission thanks to a ketogenic diet!
He's also dedicated his professional life to spreading the good news about how changing his diet, put his cancer in remission and saved his life.
So do yourself a favor and have a listen! It is truly an inspiring story about the NECESSITY of being your own health advocate. And it's incredibly entertaining too! You won't even believe the lengths Andrew has gone to (and the foods he's eaten)!
Let's just say, even the MOST health savvy of you probably aren't eating them!
