When I think back to some of my best childhood memories, a few that stand out are the times I spent with my Nana and Grandpa camping at Ossipee Lake here in New Hampshire.
What I loved most was when we packed up lunch for the day and went cruising around the lake on their boat.
And then after lunch we’d drop the anchor in the sandbar to go swimming.
Spending that time with my grandparents was the highlight of my summer during my elementary school years.
And those are memories I will always cherish.
About five years ago, I lost my Nana to lung cancer.
After she was diagnosed and she was seeking out treatment plans, I sent her numerous articles about holistic approaches to healing from cancer, but she brushed them off.
She didn’t seem interested in looking for answers outside of the conventional treatments her doctor suggested. So she opted for chemotherapy.
Unfortunately, that didn’t work for her and she died shortly after.
I’ve always wondered if she had been open to making diet and lifestyle changes if she could have prolonged her life and even cured herself.
Cancer has not only affected my life, but it has impacted the lives of many people, especially the women in the Better Beyond 50 Community.
Because this is such an important topic to be informed about, I invited Clinical Nutritionist and Traditional Naturopath, David Getoff, to the BB50 podcast to share his expertise about cancer.
And what he had to share really opened my eyes to the misconceptions about cancer development, prevention and treatment.
Here’s what you’ll discover about cancer in this episode:
* Why cancer develops in the first place and how some of the foods we’re eating and pharmaceutical drugs we’re taking every day actually feed cancer cells.
* Why NONE of the conventional cancer approaches like surgery, radiation, drug therapy and chemotherapy are truly effective solutions. (In fact, many people die from the side effects of conventional cancer therapies).
* The most effective natural therapies for cancer.
* The 6 steps you can take to prevent cancer cells from growing in your body. (HINT: One of them has to do with eliminating sweeteners that feed cancer cells).
* The 3 most important steps you should take after a recent diagnosis.
* The #1 thing that will hold you back and prevent you from getting well.
