Woman turns to raw foods, heals self from thyroid cancer

(NaturalNews) When Dr. Ruby Lathon, an engineering professional, was diagnosed with thyroid cancer, she dreaded the thought of undergoing surgery and taking medications. While such treatments are typically the go-to solution in situations like hers, such drastic measures were something she hoped to avoid. So, whereas many people give in to traditional medical advice without exploring other options, Lathon did otherwise.

“I decided to try an alternative, holistic approach to cure it rather than go through surgery and be on medications all my life,” said Lathon. She explains that she gave herself one year to beat her cancer by completely changing her lifestyle. She eliminated all processed foods and stopped her dairy intake and instead juiced daily, ate only raw foods and always made sure to consume plenty of fruits and vegetables.(1)

The results?

Before her one-year time frame to test the effectiveness of this dietary shift was even up, she says that she was declared as cancer-free.

“I’ve always had a firm belief that the body can heal itself,” she said, crediting her new dietary lifestyle for the turnaround in her health.(1)

These days, Lathon is completely devoted to her healthier lifestyle. Not only is she involved in seminars and workshops that teach about the healing powers of whole, plant-based foods as well as self-healing and spirituality, but she provides others with healthy recipes on her YouTube channel, TheVeggieChest. Just some of the many recipes found there include a raw beet jicama salad with spicy lime dressing, an egg-free quiche and a raw sun-dried tomato hummus.

A raw food diet has healed several others with a variety of health problems

Several others like her have discovered the health benefits of a raw food diet. Stacy Stowers had debilitating fibromyalgia that kept her in a state of chronic pain for almost 20 years. When she began a raw foods diet, she was able to get out of bed within 10 days; now, she’s been free of her pain ever since.(2)

Then there’s Amanda Brocket, who struggled with systemic candidiasis. In addition to constantly fighting intense sugar cravings, she was always fatigued, mentally and physically. She decided to detox and consume raw foods. Just two months into maintaining this lifestyle, she says she was symptom-free.(3)

Consuming raw foods can also be an effective breast cancer treatment. When Janette Murray-Wakelin was diagnosed with Stage 3 breast cancer and told she only had six months to live, she turned to raw foods and within the same time period that she was told she might die, she was instead given a clean bill of health.(4)

Although some people say that a raw food diet doesn’t provide the body with adequate nutrients, evidence shows otherwise. Not only have many people like Lathon healed themselves in this manner, but they’ve shown that the myths surrounding the lifestyle can be put to rest.

Putting raw food myths to rest

For example, one myth about those who eat raw foods is that they only consume fruits and vegetables, or just enjoy one particular vegetable all day for weeks on end. While they do eat fruits and vegetables, they are no stranger to variety, often incorporating plenty of nuts and seeds in their diet as well.

Furthermore, the notion that such a diet is expensive is also a myth. Many people who enjoy raw foods need only to remind others of the costs of meat and junk foods to demonstrate that an unhealthy diet is truly the kind that costs, impacting the wallet and lost work time, as well as hospital fees that may result from the many health complications that these foods bring about.(5)

Wausau News

Taking on a Raw Food Diet and Juicing Lifestyle Was One of the Best Decisions Janette Made
