The Road Map to Recovery
Take a deep breath
Getting diagnosed is an unsettling and stressful experience, but it is important not to rush into making any decisions. Don’t be scared to seek second opinions and explore alternative therapies.
Ask for help
You are going to need physical and emotional support to get you through. Start to “Build Your Village” your dream team of health professionals, friends and family members.
Planning your journey to wellness
After you have gathered the facts, researched what treatments and therapies are available to you in your local area and start to see a path forward, it is important to make a plan which will provide structure and reduce stress.
Adjust your diet – Eating The “Fit 50”
No amount of medication and treatments can fix a dietary related disease such as diabetes and around 80% of all cancers. We have researched the fifty most effective ingredients that have significant anti cancer or immune boosting properties. Learn more about these foods and how they can help you in your fight for better health.
Remove Toxins & Processed Foods
Toxins are hidden in many common household items such as deodorants, shampoos, moisturisers, toothpaste and even tap water. Processed foods which contain refined carbohydrates, sugars, trans fats or processed meats with nitrates can be just as toxic. Learn what to avoid and possible substitutions.
We now know that exercise plays a beneficial role in not only the prevention of cancer, but also increasing the effectiveness of traditional cancer treatments, even killing cancer cells in patients suffering from a range of cancers.
Manage your mindset
Being diagnosed and then trying to find the right path to take can be stressful and emotionally draining. Choosing your mindset and forming habits to ensure you maintain a positive mindset is important to your recovery and staying well.
Control your environment
If you don’t control your environment, your environment will control you. This might be as simple as temporarily not socialising with people who have unhealthy habits like smoking or drinking, removing alcohol or junk food from the house if you are prone to temptation.
Plan your recovery
A diagnosis of cancer can turn your life upside down and for months, your focus will be on doctors appointments, treatments, living differently and dealing with the side affects of cancer. It is important to start planning your recovery early so you can see the path to recovery and start walking towards it.
Living in remission – staying well
It is important that when you kick the “C” you do not revert back to habits which may have caused it. Once you are healthy again, continue to eat well and stay active so that you continue to be well.

Why is what we eat so important?
The old saying couldn’t be more true, “you are what you eat”. Our bodies are made up of trillions of cells and ultimately the quality and health of each cell is directly related to the quality of the building blocks we provide it with from the foods we choose to eat.
While there is no one food which can cure cancer alone, If we take a holistic approach and consciously nourish our bodies with the right nutrients, we can encourage healthy cell growth, boost our immune systems and even repair damaged/mutated cells.
By eating the right foods and avoiding the wrong foods can vastly increase recovery, or prevent the development of cancer.
How to use food to fight cancer
Following a healthy diet in conjunction with regular exercise, has been shown to reduce chances of developing cancer by over 33%.
Learn how to strengthen your immune system, cells and ultimately your body to give you the best chances of avoiding cancer and many other degenerative diseases.
Whether you choose have surgery, follow traditional treatment methods or decide to follow the alternative medicine route, throughout your journey, your nutritional needs will change. What you choose to eat will be incredibly important for your recovery so click below to read more on how you can make better choices when planning your nutrition on your path to recovery..
What we choose to eat can either nourish and strengthen our immune system, cells and body and provide robust health, or weaken our cells and immune system and cause sickness and disease.
To fight, you need to remove the confusion and stress around what to eat so you can focus on what’s important, restoring your health. Together, let’s plan your recovery.
