So I’m often asked “Where do you buy your food?” Well when I first started this journey in January 2004, organic food was pretty scarce in Memphis, TN.
Now (thank the Lord on high) it is much easier to find.
We shop at various places like Whole Foods aka “Whole Paycheck”, Kroger, Fresh Market, and local Farmer’s Markets. And Micah does a pretty good job of keeping up with which store carries what, and who has better prices etc.
But one of our favorite places is Costco. A couple years ago we discovered that they have a really impressive selection of organic food and health food. So I thought it would be fun and helpful to take pictures of the super healthy food we buy at Costco on a regular basis.Continue Reading
Well it’s New Years Day and I’m sitting on the couch in my jammies drinking my morning concoction (16 oz of ozonated water with 4 grams of vitamin c and green tea extract)
and reflecting on what a terrific year 2012 was.
Nine years ago today I was in the hospital recovering from colon cancer surgery.
And the year that followed (2004) was the toughest year of my life physically and emotionally. That was when I radically changed my diet and lifestyle and took my health into my own hands….
Hayley Mills, 66, star of two of my daughters favorite movies Pollyanna and
The Parent Trap secretly battled breast cancer for 3 years before going public in January 2012.
This week she announced that she had surgery, refused radiation, and quit chemo after three sessions, and now four years after her diagnosis, she explains how she is happy, healthy and cancer-free.Continue Reading
What a perfect story to post three days before Christmas!
“Mistletoe gives the kiss of death to cancer.”
In a new study, Zahra Lotfallani, a researcher at University of Adelaide in Australia,
(that’s her in the pic) found that one type of Mistletoe extract called Fraxini, when compared to chemotherapy, was more effective against colon cancer cells and less toxic.
I’m really excited about this post because I’m sharing some really cool stuff about Vitamin C that many people do not know. Or maybe I’m wrong and everyone already knows this but me…
This is a powerful anti-cancer protocol and even if you don’t have cancer, you can use this method to determine how much toxic stress is going on inside your body and how high doses of Vitamin C could dramatically improve your health.Continue Reading
A major ally in my quest to heal cancer naturally was Clinical Nutritionist / Master Herbalist John Smothers at Integrative Wellness & Research Center in Memphis, TN.
He was the first person to tell me I was doing the right thing by rejecting chemo and radically changing my diet and lifestyle. Words cannot explain how exciting that was for me…
Along with a strict anti-cancer diet he recommended a lot of different supplements to support healing in my body.
As you can imagine, the question about supplements comes up a lot.
“What did you you take, what brands, how much, how often?”
I’ve been hesitant to get into those details because some of the supplements I took were specific to my body’s needs and may not be beneficial for every person with cancer.
So recently I sat down with John and asked him to put together an updated cancer supplement protocol that I could share with you.
These are the fundamental supplements that he recommends for all his clients with cancer (including me), along with strict diet modification.Continue Reading
Here it is! My third annual Healthy Holidays Gift Guide for 2012!

(Reuters) At least two thirds of people with advanced cancer believed the chemotherapy they were receiving might cure them, even though the treatment was only being given to buy some time or make them comfortable, according to a U.S. survey.
Researchers reported in the New England Journal of Medicine that 69 percent of patients who were terminally ill with lung cancer, and 81 percent with fatal colorectal cancer, did not understand that their chemotherapy was not at all likely to eliminate their tumors.
“Their expectations are way out of line with reality,” said lead researcher Deborah Schrag of the Dana-Farber Cancer Institution in Boston, speaking to Reuters Health…Continue Reading
Ok so here’s my talk from the Staying Alive New York 2012 health conference.
It was like pulling teeth to get my hands on it, but I finally got it!
It’s a 40 minute talk plus 20 minutes of Q&A with the audience.
And the only place you can watch it is right here.

This year’s experts include: Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez, Dr Leigh Erin Connealy,
Dr Franciso Contreras, Mike Adams, Kris Carr, and…
There’s one particular guest that I could not be more excited about.
Read the post to find out who it is!
My name is Linda, I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in June of 2010 at age 47.
I had the surgery and unfortunately I did the chemo. A few months into the chemo I started reading books and changed a lot of things. I finished all but one treatment – I did stop early though because of the things I had learned while reading and researching.
I changed my diet to completely vegan, with juicing, I started doing the flax oil and cottage cheese (Budwig Protocol), drinking Essiac Tea, and began seeing a naturopathic doctor who also has medical doctors at his clinic who deal with cancer, and changed my supplements to the best I could buy.
But the thing that I think saved my life was having all of my root canals removed…Continue Reading
Today’s post is a video interview I did this week with Kelley Eidem, author of
Kelley and I discuss:
-Dr Revici’s relatively unknown work and natural cancer treatment approach
-How to determine whether your body is in an anabolic or catabolic state
-What that means and how it should determine your specific anti-cancer diet
-What types of foods relieve cancer pain naturally
-How Kelly used what he learned from Dr. Revici to heal his own cancer naturally
And the strange and remarkable pain relief some cancer patients are getting from an all natural homeopathic nasal spray.Continue Reading
Back in 2004 when I first started to research natural therapies I read every natural cancer survival testimony I could find. I found many common threads and one of them was jumping on a mini trampoline, aka Rebounding. I figured since so many natural survivors and health practitioners were doing it there must be something to it…
Here’s a video I made about rebounding along with a detailed blog post about the science behind rebounding.Continue Reading
Chemotherapy can cause damage to healthy cells which triggers them to secrete a protein that sustains tumour growth and resistance to further treatment, from a study published in Nature Medicine, August 2012.
Researchers in the United States made the “completely unexpected” finding while seeking to explain why cancer cells are so resilient inside the human body when they are easy to kill in the lab.Continue Reading
In what I think is a perfect follow up to my Orthorexia post…
Here’s a video interview I did with raw vegan bodybuilder Wade Lightheart.
Wade is an excellent example of how some people can thrive on a raw diet.
We talk about diet, training, fasting, enzymes, and more.
He’s an incredible resource of health knowledge so get your notepad ready!
So is it possible to have an unhealthy obsession with healthy eating?
Sounds a bit ridiculous right?
We live in a toxic world. We’re bombarded with toxins every day from external sources and in the processed junk food we eat. This is why so many of us are sick. Simply put, food provides is the fuel for every cell in our bodies and the best fuel comes from clean organic whole food sources.
So yes, healthy eating is extremely important, heck that’s what this blog is all about!
But it is possible to become so obsessive over your health to a degree that you actually become unhealthy.Continue Reading
A Matter of Life is a new documentary film about the cancer epidemic in America, the cancer treatment industry, and the natural health movement. The film centers around Dr. David Servan-Shreiber, author of the book Anticancer: A New Way of Life.
Along with Servan-Schreiber, the filmmakers interview doctors, experts, researchers, patients, and natural survivors like me!Continue Reading
This movie has been out for awhile and it just occurred to me that I have’t said anything about it on the blog. So today I am!
Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead is a documentary about Joe Cross, an overweight pill-popping Australian man with a rare chronic disease who decides to go on a 60-day juice fast while road-tripping across the U.S.
There some really amazing serendipitous events that happen along the way which I won’t divulge, but I will tell you that his health transformation is incredible…Continue Reading
