The reason I started this blog is that I want to share (actually shout out to the whole world) that eating alkaline rich foods, not only prevent, but can actually cure cancer and other wide range of illnesses from arthritis, migraines, diabetes to simply feeling sluggish and bloated.
In October last year, I had a wake up call and started devouring a variety of cancer curing diet books. Three of my close friends sadly lost someone near and dear to them in the span of 3weeks. At the same time, I went for a routine blood test and found an extreme value with a cell producing hormone responsible for cysts and cancer. A few days later, my doctor discovered a 6 cm growth in my ovaries. He assured me not to worry until we did further tests and even if it was cancer, we caught it at an early stage. Right. “Don’t worry” and “cancer” in the same sentence? My world changed overnight.
I left his office and went straight out and bought a slow grinding juicer. I had just finished several of the cancer curing diet books the previous week. So overnight, I went from being a devoted carnivore to cutting out all meat, fish, dairy products, wheat, sugar, salt, coffee, wine and started grinding my organic fruits and vegetables juices religiously. I knew my sister-in-law’s neighbour had cured himself of late stage liver cancer by following one of these books, so I was definitely going to start straight away – just in case!
After several (long) weeks of tests and examinations, the doctor concluded it was a benign cyst and it had already shrunk to half it’s size. I let out a HUGE sigh of relief and felt an immense sense of gratitude for my health.
It was a true wake up call and also a steep learning curve. Health and the next 40 years is not something I can take for granted! If I actually want to live a long and healthy life into old age, then I need to learn about how to change my diet and learn about alkaline based foods.
And what better place to be than in Italy? Surrounded by fresh produce at local markets, delicious natural food, wonderful recipes passed on from generations…
I’ve also ditched all my commercial face creams, shampoos, soaps and washing liquids and trying out natural ingredient based products instead (more about that later).
So to health and happiness!
