How Dr. Dale Figtree Healed Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma Naturally

In 1977, at the age of 27, Dale Figtree PhD was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Her tumor was inoperable and she immediately began chemo and radiation. After six months of treatment and enduring the maximum allowable lifetime dose of radiation (yikes), her tumor was reduced but not gone. Surgery was not an option and she was told that there was nothing more they could do.

It was at that terrifying yet magnificent moment that Dale decided to take control of her situation. Instead of giving up and preparing to die, she took Massive Action and decided to radically transform her life and her body.

Her healing journey was incredibly difficult, and she came very close to death, but she persevered and prevailed!

Three years later her cancer was gone and she is now a 45 year survivor!

This is an interview you do not want to miss. You’re going to love hearing the inspiring story and wisdom of Dr. Dale Figtree. Enjoy!
