Christine Holcomb – 12 year holistic breast cancer survivor and HealingStrong co-founder

Christine Holcomb was diagnosed with stage IIb breast cancer in 2011. After surgery, she decided against chemotherapy and radiation treatments and instead chose a holistic approach to healing, which included supporting her immune system with raw foods, supplementation, and detoxification strategies.

I met Christine in 2013 at the first HealingStrong Conference. Soon after, she founded the first Healing Strong support group, hosting monthly meetings to connect with and encourage other cancer patients who have chosen a holistic path to healing.

Christine is a shining example of hope. She has a huge servants heart and a lot of wisdom to share. Enjoy!

Note: This video interview is hosted on Rumble because the topics discussed are no longer allowed on Youtube (Gerson Therapy, coffee enemas, etc.). I know, I know. It really is unbelievable. There is a skippable commercial at the beginning.
