    As I listen to this presentation I see that most of the problems comes from the process of foods. Most of what we eat in out time are already made or process foods.

    If you haven’t gotten cancer I don’t think there’s any way you can understand what cancer patients go through. Physically, emotionally and financially, it drains every bit of life in you. My granddad had cancer so also my dad and to crown it all he was a heavy smoker. I knew it was only a matter of time before I got it so I was as careful as I could be with my health. I did everything necessary to avoid this, but my hope was shattered when I was rushed to the ER on the 2017 of January, my scans came out positive. Further testing showed I had Stage 4 Small Cell Lung Cancer which had spread to some lymph nodes and adrenal gland. Chemotherapy wasn’t an option cause my dad used this and still lost his battle. I hate when I read from some random sites that baking soda cures cancer like really???? I read about how people went to Mexico for alternative cancer treatment and I was keen to it. Luckily a colleague at work that had gone to Mexico for breast cancer told me about a herbalist doctor that use herbs and diet protocol to clear her cancer. I was already interested in holistic treatment to fight this. So I contacted the herbalist via Skype and his email. He went through my scans and bloodworks then placed me on an anti cancer diet as he called it and also sent some herbs which he called Apollo essential oil and tea (he mentioned he extracted a special carrier oil from the herbs) to me from Mexico to the US. My spirit was in tune with this all these time and I always believed I could defeat this. The herbalist also tried working on my mindset as well and encouraged me in my journey. I was on this for about 7 months. It’s been over a year now and I’ve been in remission, my oncologist said "I don’t know what you did I don’t want to know either as we don’t accept miracles in my practice, but just keep doing want you’re doing". I write this with a big smile on my face, I know I’m only in remission but I pray to stay this way for a long time.
    I know this will help someone struggling with this as it as helped me, here is the herbalist Skype and contact email:

    i was told i had cancer in my sinuses, it is inoperable and I had been taking Chemo for 6 weeks the last MRI come back that the tumor had shrunk but they wanted to do radiation 5 days a week for 7 weeks i was fine on the Chemo but this radiation was killing me, I’ve had 7 rounds and had has sores in my mouth and throat I was not able to eat because the cancer was just spreading despite all the chemotherapy so i was down to 92 pounds . So there was a time I was just wanting to know if i should do this much radiation or try to just live and how much time this will last when I came across a post on YouTube about this Dr.osagie Herbal world on how he cured someone who was having a breast cancer so I didn’t waste any time to contact him, and I just asked few questions and he told me about his products and it’s effectiveness and how to also purchase it which I did and he gave me instructions on how to administer it so I continue with it and start consuming it and having my sleep and having good appetite for food, weeks later my mouth was healed and was having some kind of strength in me and third week I was not feeling any pain so the following week I called my local doctor here and he asked me to come for test which I did and behold cancer was not there anymore and he was surprised and asked for Dr.Osagie’s number because so many patients will really need to visit him. I was cured completely, and all thanks to Dr Osagie herbal world.. Right now I’m feeling so strong and putting this testimony down here so if anyone wish to contact him via WhatsApp here it is
    cellphone number: +22960714125,
    After the cure,the tumor had shrunk to the point that doctors could no longer detect cancer. Thank You Dr Osagie herbal world. My daughter Amy decided to start a support group for people with all kinds of Cancer and also with the help of Dr Osagie almost all were cured. You don’t have to die in silence and having cancer is not the end for you, just contact Dr osagie herbal and i assure you, that you will smile

    On juice and in my opinion is that we drink those already made juices which aren’t healthy. But if we make juice al home and clod press that is a way to drink a healthier juice. I make carrot and ginger juice at home . I dont add any sugar and it taste so delicious. It is easy ,healthy and delicious. I cant no longer buy juice at the store since I got used to the natural taste of the one I made home. The quality is very tasty…after we detox from processed sugars we can learn how to enjoy natura foods taste.

    But you have to eat the right kind of popcorn; non- GMO and with no glysophates. This is hard to find.

    Greetings from Bangladesh 🇧🇩.
    My maid has been diagnosed with grade 3 breast cancer. I have been treating her with keto diet. I’m giving her garlic oil 500 mg 2 times a day.
    Nigella sativa oil 25 ml 2 times a day.
    Termeric boiled tea 3 times a day.
    2 kilos of carrot into juice daily.
    Spirulina tablets 2 times a day.
    Vitamin c effervescent tablets 10,000 mg per day.
    Riboflavin tablets 2 times a day.
    Cooked tomatoes 2 cups a day.
    She’s been taking these around a month now.
    She’s complaining the tumour is paining and she had a fever two days ago.
    I’m thinking if I’m doing something wrong. I don’t want her to go through chemo and all that nasty stuff. Please help.
