You can-cer vive

Darren is LIVING with cancer - choosing to survive & live every day!
How does he do it?
1. He does NOT let cancer define him. The term "cancer survivor" does not apply to him. He does not just "survive" he "thrives".
2. He wakes up every single morning with the most incredible attitude! It's not that he doesn't think about having cancer everyday, but he chooses to make it a great day!
3. When he is having an off day (forgets why he's in a certain room or what he's supposed to be doing or puts toothpaste in his hair instead of hair gel...happens a lot)...he laughs.
4. He eats healthy (80% of the time) and works out.
5. And most importantly, he laughs out loud EVERYDAY (sometimes all day).When something bad happens, you have three choices: Let it define you, let it destroy you, or let it strengthen you. Choose to let it strengthen you! What lies before us and what lies behind us are small matters compared to WHAT LIES WITHIN US. And when you bring what is WITHIN out into the world, MIRACLES HAPPEN.“

Juicing benefits!

Juicing (the process of separating the juice from the pulp of fruits, vegetables and plant foods) is a great way to prevent cancer as well as enhance your cancer treatment.If you are in active treatment, are having chewing, swallowing, or digestive problems, or are struggling with excess weight loss due to cancer and it's treatment, juicing may be a good option for getting valuable nutrients into your body. Juicing extracts the liquid from the fruits and vegetables and leaves the pulp behind. This is important as it aids in the digestion of the nutrients and enzymes without requiring large amounts of energy to aid in digestion. This reserves the body’s energy for healing.

Other benefits of juicing for cancer is that it helps the body become more alkaline which research has shown is beneficial to cancer patients. It also facilitates in hydration, reducing inflammation, and eliminating toxins. Some fruits and vegetables have a cleansing action on the liver and aid in releasing bile while others are powerful detoxifiers and fight free radicals.

Do you have a juicer or do you prefer to go someplace? Do you have a favorite recipe?

LIVING with cancer: sugar's effect on cancer

You are sweet enough! ⁣

By now you’ve heard time and again how bad sugar is for you. It’s been linked to obesity, heart disease, diabetes—and now also cancer. According to a study done at the @mdanderson, high amounts of sugar in today’s diets may increase the risk of breast cancer. The main culprit appeared to be fructose, as it exacerbated the inflammatory process. ⁣

Needing something sweet? Stick to natural sugar found in fruit and avoid sugar-sweetened beverages, tabletop sweeteners, candy, and desserts. Or, have a piece of dark chocolate (ideally 70% or higher). ⁣

Fun fact, A research study conducted at the University of California in San Francisco showed that chocolate that’s greater than 70 percent cacao can activate the body’s stem cells!!
