Woman Rejects Chemo, Overcomes Ovarian Cancer With Nutrition ("Believe it or not?" - I do!)

Woman Rejects Chemo, Overcomes Ovarian Cancer With Nutrition ("Believe it or not?" - I do!) | Nutrition & Wellness | Scoop.it
Evita Ramparte was diagnosed with a serious case of ovarian cancer, but she rejected chemo and radiation and cured her cancer through nutrition instead.

Instead, Evita opted to use an approach centered around nutrition and lifestyle — one that she says ultimately ended up curing her cancer that doctors said could not truly be cured. She visited an alternative health professional, and began a regiment of Gerson-styled juicing. Radically altering her diet from her usual processed food intake of pizza and doughnuts into freshly made juice from her own home, she also began to realize what it’s like to actually feel healthy and happy.

Evita even remembers how the juicing allowed her to remove around 16 or so stones from her gallbladder, stones that are made up of toxic materials that sit within your body and in many cases lead to gallbladder removal surgeries once the mainstream medical establishment becomes involved. Eventually, Evita’s new lifestyle led to a whole new take on life, one that she says revealed her ‘true beauty’ that she had never known. Looking physically healthier all around from healthy fat loss and rejuvenated skin health, Evita also is experiencing the mental benefits of a healthier lifestyle.

Great true story about eating foods to get healthy. She did this by focusing on the solution and not the problem.
