The humble horseradish may not be much to look at, but a recent University of Illinois study shows that it contains compounds that help detoxify and eliminate cancer-causing free-radicals in the body.To the post!

Wouldn’t it be nice if there was a study that investigated whether or not the food patients eat had any impact on their survival?
In early 2012 I discovered the ketogenic diet for cancer. I’ve understood for many years that different diets work for different people and I was intrigued by it as a possible dietary strategy to heal cancer, so naturally I shared information about it on this site, thinking it might be a viable option for some. At that time there were no other sites as large as mine talking about it.
In 2013, awareness of the keto diet exploded, mostly do to Dr. Mercola’s articles, interviews and endorsement of it. Since then, many others have jumped on the bandwagon.
Despite the zealous promoters of it, many of whom I have great respect for, my opinion of the ketogenic diet for cancer has changed.
It started with several long phone conversations and email exchanges I had with my friend
Dr. Patrick Vickers of Northern Baja Gerson Center. He was adamant that the ketogenic diet did not work in healing cancer long term. This coincided with the recurrence of cancer in someone I knew that was promoting the ketogenic diet as effective.
It appeared to have some positive short term results for some people (shrinking tumors), but I was beginning to have some doubts about it working long term. Then came the coup de grace from Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez, an article series on Natural Health 365, which I have reposted here.To the post! →
Given 6 months to live in 1975, Carl Helvie refused chemo and used natural methods to heal himself.
Today he is the longest living lung cancer survivor and in excellent health.

This study confirms why my anti-cancer diet worked!
Researchers studied the inhibitory (cancer-stopping) effects of 34 vegetable extracts
on 8 different tumor cell lines.
They basically ran the vegetables through a juicer and then dripped the extracted juice on different cancer cells to see what would happen. Here’s what they found…To the post! →
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.To the post! →
Diagnosed with terminal lung cancer in 1976, Stamaitis Moraitis left the U.S. and moved back to Ikaria, a mediterranean island, to be close to his family and enjoy his last 9 months on earth.
30 years later he’s 96, still alive and cancer-free.
No surgery, no drugs, no chemo. Not even any alternative therapies.
So what did he do? Read on…
Allan Taylor was told by doctors that his cancer was ‘incurable’. Then he changed his diet. Four months later the cancer was gone.To the post! →
My name is Lindsey, and I live in Cape Town, South Africa. I was diagnosed with Colon Cancer – Sept 2012. On the 12th August 2011 my life changed forever. I had been to the doctor three times before about experiencing pain in my lower abdomen. He did the usual urine and blood test and announced it was a bladder infection. Weeks of antibiotics later, I was sicker than ever.
That morning I woke with the most excruciating pain I had ever experienced, I could barely walk. Deep inside me, I knew it was something terrible.To the post! →
In early January I received a message through the blog from a young woman diagnosed with cancer at 26, just like me.
She shared a little bit about her survival story and alternative therapy strategy.
I thought it was so great that I asked her if she would do an interview. And she said yes!
Instead of chemotherapy she decided to make hardcore diet and lifestyle changes along with alternative therapies,
and had a huge surprise along the way.
I really enjoyed this interview and I know you will too.
Very powerful stuff.
Newsflash: Seeds and nuts are super healthy and most of us aren’t eating enough of them. They are a great natural source of vitamins, minerals, protein, fat, and fiber.
I’ve been eating a ton of seeds and nuts as part of my anti-cancer diet since 2004,
with one exception…
I whipped up this little video to show you how I make my salads and salad dressing.
Enjoy!To the post! →
Ok so after several requests I decided to shoot a quick video on the raw vegan coconut fruit smoothie I drank everyday as part of my anti-cancer diet.To the post! →
One of the healthiest foods you aren’t eating is the coconut, and no,
