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)

(TRFW News) When Janette Murray-Wakelin was diagnosed with stage three breast cancer, she had the option of chemotherapy, or she had the option to be brave and take on a whole new lifestyle. Now a successful marathon runner, it’s clear which path Janette decided to take to make the lifestyle changes necessary and get her life back.

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

When first diagnosed with breast cancer, Janette’s reaction was “Why me?” (1) Living most of her life with an active lifestyle and having a vegetarian diet, it seemed unfair to have this news brought to her. Even though Janette was unsure why it happened, she was definitely not going to let it stop her from living her life.

Janette heard about the Bruce Cancer Cure, which suggested that a forty-two day juice fast was…

(TRFW News) At the age of 42, Reverend George Malkmus was given only grim options when it came to his colon cancer. Fortunately, instead of accepting defeat, Malkmus decided to take his health into his own hands, and began focusing on a raw food diet.

With a brave and determined attitude and a little bit of faith, a now-healthy Malkmus spreads his knowledge and belief of the raw food diet wherever he goes.(1,2)

Malkmus Finds Immediate Positive Results from his Raw Food Diet

With advice from a friend who, “discouraged me from going the medical route, and encouraged me to do something as simple as change what I ate”, Malkmus immediately turned to his diet for answers, rather than to medication.(1)

He was happy to adopt healthier food options, and made the diet change overnight. Malkmus explained that “I almost immediately started to get well…within a year my baseball-sized tumor…

69 year old woman Cures 14 tumors with Raw Food and Exercise

Powerlifting pensioner beat cancer TWICE by lifting weights and eating raw food

THE world’s oldest powerlifter claims she cured brain cancer and 14 bone cancer tumours by changing her diet and competing as a powerlifter

When British Champion powerlifter Pat Reeves found out she had cancer she decided to take it into her own hands to cure herself.

The grandmother of two, 69, refused NHS drugs and instead began pumping iron and eating only raw foods.

“I have kept myself alive by being fit, people are in too much of a rush to take medicine and drugs when we can mend ourselves,” said the weightlifting nan.

“Powerlifting helped me I guess because it was another focus for me. One of the biggest changes I did was to take up exercise because that’s something that I never did.”

Pat was diagnosed with cancer of the brain in 1993. Doctors said the disease was fatal but that she could extend her life with the help of drugs.

Unable to accept her bleak prognosis, she decided against treatment and set about making healthier life choices – self-treating through a drastic change in nutrition and exercise.

“I took up bodybuilding because I realised running was only working me from the waist down,” she added.

But after miraculously fighting herself fit she was left devastated when she was diagnosed with osteosarcoma, in the shape of 14 bone cancer tumours, in 1994.

“It was very tough to discover I had the cancer again but I was tougher,” added Pat.

After her diagnosis she has endured four heart attacks and three TIAs – similar to a stroke – but still she refused to undergo treatment.

In a bid for survival she continued to self-treat under the guidance of private doctors in Germany, this time changing her diet to raw foods only, living on a permanent detox and upping the powerlifting.

Now the inspiring nan has been in remission for more than two years.

She works out for over two hours a week in both Germany and UK, as well as competing and judging powerlifting competitions across the world.

“I don’t think I ever come across anyone who thinks I’m mad,” joked Pat. “People are bemused by it and some of them will come around and watch me compete.”

“And I’ve never met anyone who said you’re too old for this except a doctor many years ago.

“He said ‘You’re too old to lift, give it up.’ That was probably 18 years ago – its great proving people wrong.”
