Hello lovely you!
I hope your Monday has gotten off to a good start. I’m here with little Zuzu enjoying my tea. I’m ready to write.
I am happy to be spending more and more time outside, enjoying the healing beauty of nature. Nature truly is remarkable, and the more we invite the natural world into our lives, the healthier we become.
And that brings me to the topic for today: Is a raw vegan plant-based diet a natural cure for cancer?
There are people in the medical community who would answer quickly and vehemently “No, diet plays no role in the cure of disease.” As I’ve mentioned many, many times, doctors are simply not taught how food can act like medicine. Hippocrates, the FATHER OF MEDICINE is famous for saying, “Let food be thy medicine and thy medicine be thy food.” If he had the common sense to know that what we feed our bodies dictates our health THOUSANDS of YEARS ago, why do so many modern health practitioners not have a clue?
Of course, my intention is not to knock doctors. Many of them mean well and truly want to help, they simply haven’t been taught the truth about nutrition. But what we put in our bodies is the starting point of our health or lack of.
What we eat contributes to the development of dis-ease as well as the reversal of dis-ease.
Soon after I was diagnosed with cancer and given only 6 months to live, I set about changing my eating habits. I was very young at the time, so up until the point of my diagnosis I was eating a typical diet that many young people eat, fast food, sweets, a LOT of coffee and alcohol with friends on the weekend.
In my initial research into cancer, I learned that cancer feeds on sugar. “My God,” I thought, “I eat so MUCH of it.” I knew instantly I had to COMPLETELY change my diet.
And so I began a raw vegan diet, juicing many green vegetables each day so I could load my body with nutrients that would support my immune system and help my body do what it was designed to do – become well.
Why You MUST Clean Up Your Diet
If you or someone you love has recently been diagnosed with cancer, the FIRST thing you must do is cut out refined sugars and clean up your diet. You cannot get well by eating garbage.
Processed food is manmade food, and that means that it is UNNATURAL. And things that are not natural are NOT healthy for us.
And let’s be clear about processed food… I’m not just talking about the obvious things like cookies, fast food, soda and ice cream. No, I am talking about ANYTHING that comes in a box, bag or other type of fancy packaging. This includes “healthy” items such as yogurt, protein bars, granola/cereal, crackers etc.
Jack LaLanne is famous for saying, “If man made it, don’t eat it.” The guy lived until he was 97 years old and he was fit and healthy! So listen to him.
The food industry has one goal and one goal only, and that is to make money. Don’t believe food labels claiming that something is healthy. Processed food is not healthy for a healthy individual and it has NO BUSINESS being in the kitchen cupboards of someone battling cancer.
And don’t get me started about the FDA. Just because that group deems something as healthy means absolutely NOTHING. Zero. Nada.
Why the Raw Vegan Diet is an Important Part of Your Healing Journey
Your body needs a lot of help right now, and it can only get that help from nature. Raw fruits and vegetables offer the vitamins, minerals and enzymes your body requires to begin healing. And by eating (or juicing) these fruits and vegetables raw, you don’t destroy these important enzymes and other nutrients.
The bottom line is, raw food is living food and cooked food is very close to dead. We want to load your body with life-giving food right now. This is not forever! I was on a raw plant based diet for 3 1/2 years. When I heard the words, “you are in remission,” I slowly started added in more cooked foods and low fat protein.
It’s also very important that you only ingest organic produce. Commercially grown fruits and vegetables often start with genetically modified seeds and then are bombarded with toxic chemical fertilizer and pesticides. And don’t fool yourself, much of these toxic chemicals are still present even AFTER you’ve washed your produce. So please, I know it costs extra, but this is your life and health we’re talking about, so buy organic.
Is a Raw Vegan Plant-based Diet a Cure for Cancer?
A raw vegan or plant-based diet is an important component of curing cancer. And I’m not the only one who has used this nutritional protocol to heal myself. Chris from Chris Beat Cancer healed his colon cancer with raw foods. A quick search on the Internet will turn up countless other stories of people reversing their cancer and other diseases by getting rid of the processed garbage and starting on a raw plant-based diet.
I hope you will follow this guidance from myself and others who have experienced the healing power of fruits and vegetables. The non-starchy vegetables are rich in polyphenols. Click here to learn why you need polyphenpols in your diet to heal from cancer.
