Without anyone saying one single word, I knew my mom had cancer. It was a hunch I had, despite my heart begging God that I was wrong. Call it a gut feeling or intuition. I knew the truth before I even heard it.
So when my mom eventually contacted me later that day, I already knew the bad news. Perhaps, my gut intuition prepared me to handle the horrible news the best way that I could? To encourage her. To tell her that we will beat cancer. To let her know that I'm praying for her. To remind her that God's got this.
Either way, it hit me full force. After I finished chatting to my mom over the phone, I broke down in tears. A floodgate broke loose. I couldn't stop the tears from flowing.
Her stage 3 brain cancer has changed me. Radically, dramatically, and permanently changed me. It woke me up to not only my mom's health, but my children's health, my husband's health, and my health. It opened up my eyes to see and my ears to hear credible facts about cancer. And what I've discovered is scary and disturbing.
In the midst of all of this, I researched everything imaginable about holistic wellness, whole nutrition, and plant-based foods. For those unaware, dairy and meat are proven to increase the chance of cancer. Organic dairy, meat, and eggs are not much better. Neither is seafood. (Hello mercury and radiation!)
If you know me well, then you're aware that I am extremely resourceful, strongly passionate about natural wellness, and deeply dedicated to increasing my own quality of life. This information may come as a shock to you. It's quite unfortunate the media, meat industry, dairy industry, and farming industry will go to great lengths to prevent our nation from learning the truth.
It's alarming that our traditional medical community receives minimal to zero training in pure nutrition. How can we go to our doctor's about eating the right foods and drinks when they don't have knowledge, training, or education in nutrition?
Here's what I've learned...
Nutrition does not produce wealth. Natural supplements, essential oils, and herbs don't create vast income for doctors. Diet and nutrition does not produce substantial profits. Not when you compare it to the enormous riches gained from traditional medicine and the pharmaceutical industry.
Do you want to know what does produce millions of billions of dollars of fortune? Chemotherapy produces wealth. Radiation produces wealth. Invasive procedures and surgeries produce great wealth. (At the expense of human suffering, death, and grief.)
Based on the skyrocketing cancer statistics, isn't it time that you took a look outside the box? To consider what you can do to prevent and reverse cancer? To be open to learn credible information that may not only improve you and your families health, but save someone's life?
I encourage you to widen your horizons by trying clean nutrition. Eat "real" food. Expand your taste buds. Experiment with plant-based nutrition. You just may surprise yourself by loving these new enticing recipes!
Read as much as possible about whole, real foods. Watch videos with an open mind. Advocate for yourself and your family. Because life is too darn short to lose them to cancer or any other disease on earth.
What you eat most certainly does matter. You have a choice. You have far more power than you give yourself credit. Today, determine that you will take one step forward to increase your own wellness. Drink more pure water. Eat more fresh fruits and veggies.
Lastly, watch the documentary The Truth About Cancer, CowSpiracy, What the Health, Earthlings, or Vegucated. By becoming a conscious consumer you can empower yourself to make educated decisions pertaining to your wellness.
