Gluten-Free foods increasing your cancer risk?


Those of you who know me, know that I am a gluten-free foodie, and I have been for years. I have watched hundreds of people change their health and their life around simply by eliminating this one type of food from their diet.


Recently, as I was walking down the gluten-free isle at the grocery store and reading label after label, It occurred to me that many people may not know how UNHEALTHY many of these gluten-free foods really are. In fact, many formulated gluten-free foods are loaded with artificial colorings, sweeteners, sugar, fillers, binders, and GMO (Genetically Modified Organism) ingredients!


Isn’t the point of switching to a gluten-free diet to switch to a healthier lifestyle and heal the digestive tract? Well, unfortunately with these types of foods, there will not be much healing going on, and some of your symptoms may even get worse!


Today, I want to point out to you exactly what to look for when reading a gluten-free label and give you some great suggestions that will help you out the next time you go to the supermarket.




  • CORN, SOY, CANOLA, & DERIVATIVES OF THESE FOODS (corn flour, corn syrup, soy protien isolate, etc…)

    • If a food product contains any of these ingredients, it MUST be labeled GMO-FREE, NON-GMO, or 100% ORGANIC. This ensures that even though the company may use one of these foods, it is a clean, non-GMO source.



    • All of the above are either sugar or an artificial sweetener. A small amount of REAL evaporated cane juice, or sugar in small amounts in my opinion is ok in small portions. But, read those labels, because many gluten-free foods are loaded with sugar. Make sure you read the serving size. It may say only 5 grams of sugar, but that’s per tablespoon, so when you eat 1 cup of the product, you’re getting a sugar overload. Artificial sweeteners are even worse as they can damage the pancreas, are proven neurotoxins (kill brain cells), and damage the gut. Here is more info on the link between sugar and cancer.
    • Make sure you choose a food that is has no sugar, is low in sugar or uses natural alternatives such as coconut sugar, stevia, erythritol, or non-GMO xylitol.




So, next time you’re in the gluten-free isle shopping for your favorite foods, make sure to watch out for these ingredients to make the best choices for you and your family. Here are some brands committed to the NON-GMO project that may help you navigate your way through the store-

To make things easier, eat simple whole foods such as organic veggies, cultured foods and drinks, low-glycemic fruits, clean animal protein, raw organic dairy, sprouted nuts and seeds, and grain-like seeds such as quinoa, millet, amaranth, & buckwheat!


Stay tuned tomorrow for more on gluten sensitivity & Celiac’s disease!

SUN: Cancer Causer or Conquerer?

There is WAY too much misinformation out there about the sun. I remember growing up hearing the sun was what caused skin cancer and that the absolute healthiest thing I could do was to put on the highest SPF commercial sunscreen possible. That’s all I heard through nursing school as well. You can only imagine how excited all of my nursing professor’s were when companies came out with a 100 SPF Sunscreen!!

Today, I want to straighten out a few facts about the sun and give you a few tools to have fun in the sun all summer long!

So, what’s the deal with the sun anyways? Where did the whole “Fearing the sun” thing start and why? Is it really dangerous? Think about it for a minute. Why do you put that creamy solution on your body? Maybe it’s to prevent a sunburn, which is a legitimate concern, I am definitely not a supporter of sunburns. BUT did you know between the sun rays and that bottle of Coppertone, there is only 1 of those that has been proven to prevent and even fight skin cancer (and other cancers!) and the other has been proven to increase your risk?

The SUN is actually incredibly GOOD for you!!

So, why all of this propaganda against the sun? Well, I’m going to let you connect the dots, but think about the following facts…

  • Sick people make pharmaceutical companies billions of dollars.
  • Healthy people make pharmaceutical companies no money.
  • Pharmaceutical companies are intertwined with the FDA, government, and major companies in the world that manufacture supplies.
  • UVB from the sun is the ray that is health promoting and feeds our body’s Vitamin D. UVA is the type that has been shown to be more dangerous and lead to burns, aging of the skin, and melanoma. Many sunscreens do not accurately block UVA, only UVB.
  • Chemicals in traditional sunscreens have been PROVEN to increase your risk for various cancers including skin cancer, breast cancer, and prostate cancer.
  • When you wear these chemicals in the sun, they bake into your skin and go DIRECTLY into your bloodstream.
  • Vitamin D from the sun is incredibly GOOD for you and necessary to have a ninja-like immune system. When you use these traditional sunscreens, they prevent the Vitamin D from being absorbed into your skin.
  • When people get sick from toxic cancer causing chemicals and a lack of Vitamin D, usually they purchase or need pharmaceutical products, depending on the illness, sometimes it’s a SINGLE dose of a $30,000 chemo drug.

Dr. Mercola addresses a few of these dangerous chemicals found in regular sunscreens…

Oxybenzone is one of the most troublesome ingredients found in the majority of sunscreens. According to EWG’s findings, 56 percent of sunscreens contain this harmful chemical. Its primary function is to absorb ultraviolet light. However, oxybenzone is also believed to cause hormone disruptions and the type of cell damage that can provoke cancer.


Retinyl palmitate, a type of vitamin A, is another high-risk ingredient found in many sunscreens. According to a recent CNN reportii:

“Government-funded studies have found that this particular type of vitamin A may increase risk of skin cancer when used on sun-exposed skin. However, these reports have been in mice and evidence has been inconclusive for humans.”

According to the research compiled by EWG’s chemical database, however, retinyl palmitate gets a classification of “high concern” due to its developmental and reproductive toxicityiii. Research indicates that retinyl palmitate is readily absorbed by your skin. According to a report by the National Institutes of Healthiv:

“Cosmetic formulations containing retinyl palmitate are substantially more stable than those containing retinol. Furthermore, retinyl palmitate readily penetrates into the epidermis and dermis. In vitro measurements of retinyl palmitate’s percutaneous absorption indicate that 18 percent of retinyl palmitate, topically applied in acetone, penetrates human skin within 30 hrs.

Percutaneous absorption of retinyl palmitate in currently marketed cosmetic products may be still greater due to the considerable efforts of cosmetics formulators to maximize the effectiveness of products containing retinyl palmitate and retinol.

Studies indicate that absorbed retinyl palmitate is readily hydrolyzed to retinol by cutaneous esterases. In addition, skin contains the enzymes required for further metabolism of retinol to retinaldehyde and retinoic acid, and some studies have shown that levels of retinoic acid in the skin can increase following topical application of retinyl palmitate or retinol.” [Emphasis mine]

Two other dangerous ingredients that I’ve mentioned before are parabens and fragrance.

  • Parabens were found in 99% of women who were diagnosed with breast cancer according to a study published in the Journal of Applied Toxicology. That’s a HUGE number! Parabens are chemicals found in common cosmetics (Make up, lotions, soaps, hair products, shampoo, conditioner, sunscreens, medication, etc). These chemicals mimic estrogen in the body and completely throw off your hormonal balance. THIS is a massive reason why we have SO many women with hormonal imbalance. And as this study shows, they are a huge risk for cancer.

Toxic Sunscreens

5 Fun in the Sun Safe Alternatives

  1. Try to get in the sun with as much of your skin showing as possible for at least 20 minutes per day with no sunscreen.

  2. Avoid getting sunburns. Do this by applying non-toxic sunscreen when in the sun for long periods of time. Read more about safe brands here-

  3. Eat nutrient-dense foods, especially dark leafy greens. Plant-based whole foods have been shown to decrease chances of sunburn and even skin cancer.

  4. Use coconut oil and pure aloe on the skin. These two substances are phenomenal for skin health and help to prevent burn and heal the skin if you do experience some redness.

  5. Choose a sunscreen NO HIGHER than 50SPF and preferably 30SPF or lower.

Here are some additional resources on keeping you and your family safe in the sun:

This Woman DEFEATED Breast Cancer & Ovarian Cyst Disappeared for GOOD in 4 Months!

I am absolutely LOVING sharing these inspiring stories!!! We all need more inspiration in our lives, right?! Today’s story is about an amazing woman who went through a roller coaster ride of cancer diagnoses, surgeries, radiation, and medications only to find more cancer, which is when she chose a different road that healed her for good! Check out her story!!



-This story is featured on where you can find multiple testimonies!-


Hi! My name is Sharon Hruska. I am 46 years old and I am a Director in Sunrider. I live in Courtland, Ohio with my husband Jim. We have a married daughter named Desiree and a son-in-law, Matthew. I am a public speaker for women’s organizations.

My journey with Sunrider began two years ago. I have had a series of health challenges that led me to these regenerative foods. Nine years ago I was being treated for fibrocystic disease. The night before my mammogram, I discovered a tiny lump that was extremely hard with irregular edges. I had surgery to have the lump removed and after the diagnosis, more procedures were needed. I had radiation, a lymph node dissection and was put on a drug called Tamoxifen. I was then given a ninety-five percent chance to totally recover. That was exciting! However, six years later when I heard my doctor say that a more aggressive approach was needed, this brought more surgery and devastation.

Once again, I was put on the drug called Tamoxifen, this time doubling the dose. I found myself descending into depression. A new drug called Fareston was introduced to try to stop this from happening. I found myself with no energy. I couldn’t sleep without assistance and it took every bit of strength to get through the day. I was desperately trying to stay above board. I did get through that year only to be faced with another challenge. I was having some problems on my left side so my oncologist did some blood work and sent me to a gynecologist. When she came in she said, “I am the bearer of bad news.” I couldn’t believe I was on this roller coaster again. My CA 125 blood count was 171 so she sent me to an oncologist/gynecologist for more testing. They discovered an eight-centimeter cyst on my ovary. The doctor wasn’t sure what was going on and said the next step would be exploratory surgery. I said, “no thanks” and we headed for home.

I guess you could say I had had enough. I told my husband I couldn’t go through another surgery. We prayed for another way and I believe this was answered when I was given a video called “Healthy For Life Seminar” by J.W. Emerson. I heard some things I had never heard before and it offered me hope. I asked my husband to watch the video and he said that he would watch it “tomorrow.” I said, “No, please watch it today.” After he watched the video, he too could see how this could change my health. I was ready to do whatever it would take to get my body back to a healthy state.

The first thing I did was become a vegetarian. This was not a hard choice for me as I never thought I should be eating “dead” animals. I just needed someone to tell me it was better for me. I began eating the basic Sunrider foods – one package of Quinary a day (equal to 10 capsules), two packages of Alpha 20C (to build my immune system), one package of NuPlus, one package of Fortune Delight or Calli, with Suncare (Sunectar in the U.S.) added. I didn’t like the Calli much, but have since learned why. Apparently my acidic body was cleansing and I was getting a metallic taste in my mouth. The Fortune Delight didn’t seem to have such a strong effect. But now I love my Calli! I drink at least 4 carafes a day. (I make it in a drip coffee maker that has never had coffee it in). I put the bag of Calli or Fortune Delight in the carafe and fill the back portion of the “Calli Maker” with filtered water.

There were moments when I wanted to get off track, but I just kept reminding myself that my health was more important than a few moments of fleshly desire. I followed this regimen for four months and then I had to go back for more blood tests and a sonogram.

When the results were in, the nurse called and said she couldn’t believe it! My blood count was down to a 26.64, which means it is in normal range and there was a resolution to the cyst, which means it is gone! She said she would have to call me back, as they didn’t know what they were going to do with me. On her return call, she said they were going to release me and I should call if there was any problem.

I haven’t needed to call them, but I do continue to see my local oncologist on a 6-month basis.

So, our Sunrider Journey has begun! We are excited to share what the foods have done for us. Yes, Jim is enjoying the benefits of Sunrider too! Though my husband appeared to be in excellent health, he did lose 25 pounds of toxic waste. He also became a vegetarian – something I would never have asked him to do with his Hungarian/Slovak heritage. As well, we never intended on building a Sunrider business, but we feel it would be a grave injustice if we kept these wonderful foods to ourselves.

I continue to eat one package of Quinary a day, two to three packages of Alpha 20C, and three to four scoops of NuPlus every day. And of course I drink my Calli! I have added Beauty Pearl to my program. I was having sixteen “hot flashes” a day and now it is a rarity to get even one. I no longer take Fareston or take a sleeping pill. My energy level continues to soar!

There are some other choices that I have made that I believe have contributed to the improvement in the way I feel. As a vegetarian, I do not eat meat of any kind. I do my best to stay away from refined sugar, hydrogenated oils and dairy. I must confess though, dairy is my hardest to give up, and from time to time I have a little cheese.

Sinus infections were something I dealt with at least five times a year and since my diet has changed, I have not had one sinus infection! Another bonus is our Sunsmile Toothpaste and Whitening gel. I was using whitening toothpaste from another company, and it was burning my mouth. I guess I should have read the warning label that was on it. When I called that company and told them what was happening, they quickly refunded my money. Since using our SunSmile toothpaste, I get great checkups, and don’t need to worry about my mouth burning. And I don’t have a “warning” label on my Sunrider toothpaste container!

For those of you reading this testimony, remember these are foods and NOT medicine. The concept is a little strange at the beginning. We are not used to eating foods that come out of little packages. Think of Sunrider as the highest form of nutrition in a fast-food form. I’d like to encourage you to begin as soon as you can and eat as much as your budget can afford. The person who gave you this testimony can show you how you can earn money to pay for these wonderful foods, or how you can travel the world if that is your heart’s desire.
We recently returned home from our Sunrider convention in Los Angeles, California. It was wonderful to hear Dr. Chen speak of the way he formulates these wonderful products. It is obvious he puts a lot of knowledge, love and care into his work – and he does it for us!
My prayer is that my story will not fall on deaf ears but will offer hope to all that read it.

– Sharon Hruska

She was told she was dying and there was nothing they could do…

Wow do I have an AMAZING story to share with you today!! This woman had a tumor, endometriosis, I.B.S., Diverticulosis, blood disorders, an electrolyte disorder, was in severe pain every day and wasting away…How many people do we know who have been written off by medical professionals saying “There’s nothing we can do”? I have seen this happen one too many times, and the woman in today’s story was told that same thing. Read on to see how she proved…them…WRONG!

(Taken from Health Plus Newsletter)

Hi, my name is Christy McKinney and I have been eating Sunrider foods for 3 1/2 months, so I am a “Baby Sunrider”.

I have been sick for many years but 2008 is when I really started feeling that I could barely move. Everything in my body hurt. At times I couldn’t even get enough energy to eat.

My friends and a few Doctors said it was sad to see someone dying right in front of their eyes and there was nothing they could do. I was sent to so many doctors.

I had been dealing with medical issues since 2001, severe disc degeneration in my neck (which caused migraines) and in my lower lumbar, arthritis in many places, spinal stenosis, fibromyalgia, facet joint arthritis. My sciatic nerve is pinched in two places. I have had many spinal injections in both areas and they even tried to burn the nerves in my lower back to help take away the pain but that was not successful. I have polymorphous light eruption and a lot of different allergies. I had a hysterectomy in 2001 and also a lumpectomy in 2000.

I have severe endometeriosis that has spread to other organs. I had liposuction in 2006 and that was when the worst part began. The doctors had found a pituitary disorder and a tumor growing on my pituitary gland with high Prolactin levels along with abnormal hormone readings.

They sent me to an oncologist and then to Moors Cancer at UCSD and they found some blood disorders but they couldn’t work out why I could barely move.

I had fevers of unknown origins and I lost weight so fast they were very worried.

They found colon polyps that were adenomas and told me I had diverticulosis (along with the I.B.S I’ve suffered from my whole life).

In 2010 after many different ER visits they finally found a potassium disorder.

I could not hold potassium or sodium in my body which was why I was so drained and could not move and everything on my body ached. “Ached” is a very mild word for the pain that I felt. I was a walking heart attack waiting to happen.

From that day on I have been in and out of the ER trying to get my body in balance but it was proving to be very difficult. In August 2011, I had a laminectomy and a spinal cord stimulator implanted in my back to decrease the back pain. That was only 20-30% effective. I still had to be on pain medication and potassium medication that made me sick.

In June 2012 my neighbor saw me barely making it to the mailbox. She came right over with Sunrider food (Nuplus, Fortune Delight, and Quinary) and told me she was not leaving until I ate it. So I did. After all, all I wanted to do is go to bed at 6pm which was my bedtime, staying up later was too painful.

I was AMAZED at what I felt 30 minutes later. It was like my body had been starving for the nutrients and I was giving it what it needed for so long. The next morning I called her and placed an order then a week later I started the Biggest Winner.

Since being on the Sunrider foods my pain management doctor has been prescribing the food and I have been able to return to doing activities with my family that I haven’t been able to do in many years, church being one of them.

I am so happy I have found a way to feed my body what it needs so I can heal the way God intended our bodies to heal. Oh and by the way, we eat the NuPlus, Calli, Fortune Delight, Quinary, and a Sunbar every day.

The most amazing part of my life-changing experience with Sunrider is hearing my eldest child tell me, “I will always be grateful to Desirae for bringing you Sunrider because now I have my Mom back”.

Thank you to all the people involved with Sunrider and God for changing my life in ways I never thought could be possible!



It’s SO amazing what the body can overcome when given the right tools. I’ve experienced it for myself and now want to SHOUT IT FROM THE MOUNTAIN TOPS!!!!

The Incredible Spirulina

Spirulina is one of my all-time favorite superfoods. The nutritional properties of this beautiful green powder is absolutely mind blowing! If you don’t know about Spirulina, you need to know about it! Just consuming 1 tbs of this superfood can drastically reduce your chances of harboring multiple diseases such as cancer, heart disease or stroke, or contracting a life-threatening virus such as HIV. That’s INSANE! (Insane in an amazingly good way..) WHY don’t more people know about spirulina? The important thing is that now YOU know and it’s your responsibility to share the good news! Here’s a breakdown on Spirulina…

What in the World is Spirulina???

Spirulina is similar to sea vegetables such as dulse, kelp, nori, Kombu, arame, and wakame. Spirulina along with chlorella (another AMAZING superfood) are members of the “blue-green” family. They actually aren’t sea algae, but are cyanobacteria. Cyanobacteria are the odd ones out in the bacteria world. They are the only bacteria to contain chlorophyll and use the sun as an energy source the way plants and algae do.

Why is Spirulina so Good for You?

Did you know that, ounce per ounce, spirulina contains twelve times the digestible protein of beef?
Were you aware that Spirulina can actually reverse cancer in the human body?

Those are AMAZING attributes! If I was a member of the plant world, I think I would want to be Spirulina…it has so much to offer! Not only does Spirulina offer an incredibly high amount of digestible protein, it’s protein is the BEST kind for us to consume, packing in a complete amino-acid profile, containing ALL essential amino acids needed for human health. Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins. We actually don’t utilize proteins in our bodies, we utilize the broken down version of proteins-amino acids.

More attributes of Spirulina…

B vitamins (including exceptionally high B-12), vitamin K, and other vitamins Naturally rich in iodine Minerals (including calcium, iron, magnesium, selenium, manganese, potassium, and zinc)
One of best known sources of gamma-linolenic acid (GLA, an important fatty acid for heart and joints) Other essential fatty acids, including sulfolipids, which may be protective against HIV infection of T-helper cells Phytopigments (phycocyanin, chlorophyll, and carotenoids)
Metallo-thionine compounds (proteins combined with metals that bind heavy radioactive isotopes) Low in carbohydrates (15-20 percent) Eighteen different amino acids
*Chart from

More from Mercola’s article on Spirulina…

  • The proteins in spirulina are of a highly digestible type (83 to 90 percent digestible), due to the fact that it does not have cellulose walls, like yeast and chlorella do. Therefore, the net protein utilization (NPU) is high (between 53 and 61 percent) and requires no cooking to increase the bioavailability of its proteins.
  • Studies confirm a very high “protein efficiency ratio” (PER) for spirulina, meaning your body will be able to efficiently use these amino acids.
  • Gamma-linolenic acid is rarely this high in ANY food and normally has to be synthesized by your body from linoleic acid. GLA is a precursor to important biochemicals such as prostaglandins, leukotrienes, and thromboxanes, which serve as chemical mediators for inflammatory and immune reactions.
  • Spirulina has no fatty acids with uneven carbon numbers and very low-level branched-chain fatty acids—two types of lipids that higher order animals, like you and me, cannot metabolize.
  • Spirulina has about the same calcium, phosphorous, and magnesium content as milk, a vitamin E (tocopherol) level comparable to wheat germ, and four times as much vitamin B12 as raw liver!

What are the Health Benefits of Consuming Spirulina?

It is impossible for me to share ALL of the research and benefits of this tiny miracle superfood. Here are the highlights.

Spirulina aids in…

  • Cancer prevention
  • Enhanced immune function
  • Detoxification
  • Cleansing
  • Alkalizing
  • Cholesterol lowering
  • Liver-protection
  • Anti-inflammatory effects
  • Weight Loss
  • Muscle Recovery
  • Muscle building
  • Type 2 Diabetes
  • Eye Health
  • Pain relief
  • Protection from radiation
  • Protects against Neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s & Alzheimer’s

How to Take Spirulina

I put some of my favorite brands of Spirulina in my Amazon Store. You can also get an incredible quality Spirulina from Sunrider, which is one of my top choices.The dosage you choose to take depends on your personal needs. Here is an amazing Infographic from that has some great information and recommendations you can check out.

During the holidays, it is more common for our bodies to be bombarded with acidic foods, stressful situations, sick people, and a weakened immune system. Our bodies are INCREDIBLY strong, all they need are the right tools to keep it in tip top shape! Take advantage of this amazing God-given superhero food and get it in your body every day!

Love Yourself As Your Neighbor

Today’s post is aimed at a very specific group of people. This won’t apply to everyone, but for the people it is relevant for, today could be a powerful moment in your life.

Today, I’m speaking to those of you who are victims of abuse…from yourself.

Those of you who daily speak damaging words to yourself, tell yourself you’re a failure, you’re not good enough, you’re too fat, too skinny, too short, too tall, too light-skinned, dark-skinned, etc. Do these statements sound familiar?…

  • I hate my body, why can’t I be thin like the other girls?

  • I hate my job, I feel like my life is such a failure.

  • I will never been good enough to get a job/salary/house/spouse…like them.

  • My body doesn’t work right, its broken, I will always feel sick.

  • I can’t believe I messed that up! I’m so stupid!!

  • Nobody loves me, everyone hates me, I should just go away.

  • Ugh…I am so fat! No one will ever love me, and why should they, I am gross!

  • I am so ugly, I hate the way I look.

  • I’m going to fail this test.

  • I’m not good at anything! Why am I even here?

These statements are pretty intense, but there’s a good chance that you have said something similar to yourself, and possibly on a daily basis. I know I have damaged my body and mind in this way numerous times over the years.

Whether you are a Bible reader or not, almost everyone has heard the verse, “Love your neighbor as yourself”. The truth is that no one will take care of you as well as you can. No one knows our feelings, thoughts, needs, like we do ourselves. Normally, we take care of ourselves better than others, so this Bible verse is helping open our eyes to the fact that we need to treat others as we want to be treated. This verse helps us to understand what Jesus is teaching as we all know how we want to be treated. Everyone wants to be loved, respected, and cherished, and through this verse, we understand we need to treat others with the same kindness.

In our day and age, we have a unique problem that is progressively getting worse, and that is SELF DESTRUCTION. This is especially true in women. The enemy (aka the devil) has come to steal, kill, and destroy. In women, he is especially effective at destroying our confidence, our sense of feeling beautiful, and our self-worth. Can I get an Amen?

For some of us, if we were to love our neighbor as we love ourselves, our neighbors would be pretty pissed!

Think about all the things you say to yourself on a daily basis. Now, imagine saying those things out loud directed at someone else! Yikes! Do you ever tell your inner self “I love you”? I know that may sound foreign to you, but why not? Loving yourself is not cocky, conceded, or arrogant. In fact, when other people have these attitudes of arrogance, 99% of the time it’s because of lack of self-confidence. Loving yourself is not arrogance, it is one of the BEST things you can do for your health!

I am reading a book right now by Louise L. Hay, called “You Can Heal Your Life“. AMAZING book and probably unlike anything you’ve ever read about health. Louise believes that nearly all state of dis-ease in the body comes from a lack of self-love. She also believes that any lack in life- finances, love, success- also stems from a lack of self-love. Obviously this is a very basic statement, and the book goes into much more detail, but this theory has a lot of merit to it, and many specialists have proven this to be true over the years as they continue to heal disease & cancers by addressing mental/emotional factors.

Think about it, if you love your body, you’ll take care of it- you’ll put healthier foods into it, you’ll exercise more, groom it better, you’ll feel better, be happier, and meditate on being, feeling, doing good.

If you loathe your body, you’re in an abusive relationship with yourself. You’ll end up putting junk into it, damaging it with hateful words, you most likely will hate exercise, and you’ll be stuck meditating on all the negative things in your life.

You attract into your life what you focus and meditate on. Those are two VERY different lives stemmed from one simple difference- their perspective and the way they love themselves.



I want you to take notice of how you’re treating yourself today. Stand in front of a full length mirror and look at yourself with eyes of love and appreciation. Tell yourself “I love you”, “Thank you for working so hard and doing a million things per second to keep me alive. I promise to love you a little more each and every day, because you were created PERFECT.” Maybe write down all your thoughts that you have towards yourself so you can reflect on what’s really going on. We all have an inner child within us. This isn’t voodoo, hocus pocus, new agey philosophy, it’s reality. Talk to yourself as if you were talking to a 3-year-old. If a 3-year old fell down, would you kick them while they’re down, call them a failure, and tell them that no one will ever love them because they fell? OF COURSE NOT! You’d help them up, dust them off and tell them to try again, keep going, they’re doing great!

SO MUCH WILL CHANGE if we can do this one simple thing. I know you can do it! Today is the first day of the rest of your life. Let me know how it goes!

Have a beautiful Sunday everyone!


“One of the teachers of the law came and heard them debating. Noticing that Jesus had given them a good answer, he asked him, “Of all the commandments, which is the most important?”

“The most important one,” answered Jesus, “is this: ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one.Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these.”

Thrifty Thursday- Learn From the Top 10 Cancer Experts- FOR FREE!!

Happy Thrifty Thursday!!! Today, I am spotlighting something FREE and INCREDIBLY valuable!

I just came across something that really struck a chord for me…

It’s a video and event that I think you’ll definitely want to check out.

By the end of 2012, cancer will have affected 1.6 million people in the United States alone.

Almost 600,000 people will die in that same time period.

It’s hard not to ignore an epidemic like this.  Almost everyone is affected in some way or another – whether it’s a family member, a friend, a co-worker or maybe even you.

What’s even more evident is that with all the money and efforts put into finding a cure for cancer, it still seems there’s been little motion forward.  People are still suffering.

What’s not evident is that there is a small group of doctors, professionals, nutritionists and activists working behind the scenes on protocols that they say can prevent or even treat certain cancers effectively.

Many of them practice in fear of losing their licenses and careers, but they push on because what they see in their practices is success.

Recently, health author Kevin Gianni decided to do something to bring these experts to the forefront.  His own family has been affected by cancer twice – his father died and mother went through chemotherapy and surgery for breast cancer.

For the second year in a row, starting October 31st, 2012, he’s asked 10 of the top natural cancer doctors and researchers to share what they’re doing in their clinics throughout the world.  He’s also asked survivors to tell their stories of natural healing.

This special, free online event is called the “Healing Cancer World Summit 2012” and you can read more about it and register here (it’s free)…

Last year over 52,000 people attended this online event!

This group of experts includes doctors, nutritionists, advocates and survivors – all in the same online forum – that will share their science, research and stories to share the options that are available that you may never have heard about.

Some of the 9 experts include Dr. Nicolas Gonzalez, Dr. Francisco Contreras, Dr. Leigh Erin Connealy, Mike Adams, and more.  Combined, this group has had decades of experience working with cancer patients in their clinics.

During the program, you’ll…

– Find out what therapies these doctors and experts are using that they say can prevent and even treat cancers naturally.

– Discover herbs and supplements that are scientifically known to prevent cancer.

– Discover scientific and documented proof that natural cancer treatments work.

– Learn how to detoxify and cleanse the body naturally… and safely.

– And much more.

To listen in to this online event is completely free.  You can read more or sign up here!

Mindful Monday- Are you Feeding Cancer Cells?

Happy Monday Everyone!

I hope you had a great weekend! Today is Mindful Monday and we are going to focus on a VERY important topic- Being mindful of feeding or starving cancer cells.

**Now, before you continue, you need to know because this is such a delicate topic, this advice should not be used as a cancer protocol for someone who has been diagnosed with cancer. This is purely my opinion and the results of my research, and should not be used as anything other than that. **

Ok, now back to the good stuff! Did you know that we all have cancer cells? That’s a pretty crazy thought! In fact, it is predicted that throughout our lifetime, we all have the big “C” word 11 times! It’s our immune systems that keep it in check Are you feeding cancer cells at this very moment? Check out my video and info below to find out!

Foods known to feed cancer cells:

  • Sugar- in ALL it’s hidden forms- read your labels!
  • GMO Foods (Genetically Modified Foods)
  • MSG- Monosodium Glutamine
  • Nitrates/Nitrites- found in most deli meats
  • Artificial sweeteners: aspartame, saccharine, splenda, sucralose
  • White flours & products of those flours- crackers, breads, cookies, etc.
  • Refined grains
  • Hydrogenated & partially hydrogenated oils
  • Artificial Colorings- Yellow, Red, Blue…
  • Processed meats: smoked, cured, chemically preserved
  • Microwaved popcorn- YEP! It’s true!
  • Deep fried foods
  • Farmed Salmon
  • Non organic apples and other “dirty fruits & veggies”
  • Canned foods (unless they are specifically BPA free)
  • Foods high in processed iodized salt (a healthy alternative is celtic sea salt or himalayan salt)
  • Large amounts of alcohol

Cancer Starving Foods…

The idea behind cancer starving foods is multifaceted. Some inhibit tumor cellular growth, some create an alkaline environment to starve cancer cells, some create cancer cell death. Here are some of the top cancer starving foods.

  • Sunrider Foods- The testimonies I have witnessed have truly been life-changing.
  • Medicinal Mushrooms: Reishi, Chaga, Agaricus blazei Murill, Coriolus versicolor, Maitake, Shiitake
  • Avocados
  • Cruciferous veggies which contain the compounds DIM & I-3-C proven to suppress cancer cell growth- broccoli, cabbage, kale, spinach, brussels sprouts, cauliflower
  • Onions & garlic
  • Asparagus
  • Sea vegetables
  • Lemons & limes
  • Organic red grapes- BEST if cultured due to high sugar content
  • Brazil nuts & apricot kernels

This is not the end all be all of lists, but I hope it will help bring some awareness of what kinds of foods can feed your cancer cells and what kinds will help suffocate them. So remember to think about what you’re putting in your body. You do have control over this choice. Have a wonderful day filling your body with cancer kicking foods!



“Be careful! Watch out for attacks from the Devil, your great enemy. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for some victim to devour”- 1 Peter 5:8

*I truly believe cancer is the tool the devil uses to steal people’s joy, hope, and dreams. The body was not designed to be taken over by cancer. This comes from a depleted and toxic world and lack of knowledge by the general public of the proper ways to protect the body. Good thing through CHRIST we have the power to kick him in the balls and send him to hell where he belongs!* (My emphasis added 🙂 )
