Modern medicine has worked miracles for many patients, but what about the patients whose modern medicine did not work? You know, the patients and the loved ones who are sent home to "put their estate in order" and "prepare for a funeral." Many of those patients survive thanks the numerous benefits of natural medicine. Natural healing is becoming more popular by the day and for good reasons. There is more research out on the benefits of natural healing than ever before! I have found that a combination of modern medicine (chemotherapy for me), exercise, and natural remedies has provided me with the arsenal I need to send Dirty Harry out of business!
Below are articles and web links that I found very helpful in my research on Natural Healing.
Eat to Prevent! This guide shows the most common phytonutrients, what foods you find them in, and the benefits of each!

BAD Sugar Here is a LONG list of how refined sugar is bad for your body. I have a sweet tooth, so this article was definitely hard to swallow. I now try to limit my refined sugar intake a few days before my chemotherapy treatments and during my chemotherapy treatments to keep my immune system it top shape.
Probiotics After much research I decided to give probiotics a try. I was impressed with how well it helped my stomach heal from surgery by allowing me to eat foods that I otherwise would not have been able to eat. Probiotics also has helped me fight off infections that commonly attack chemotherapy patients. I do not use probiotics on a regular basis. I tend to use it before and during chemotherapy, as well during times when illnesses are circulating the family.
I love POM! I love this stuff! It tastes wonderful and comes in many different flavors like Pom original, Pom blueberry, Pom mandarine, and Pom cherry ( my favorite). Research shows this juice to be the best in ridding your body of free radicals, like the ones that cause cancer and other life threatening disease. I did other research on line by searching "pomegranate juice and cancer" and I was impressed by what I read. I drink 8 oz a day to help my body get rid of those nasty free radicals!
Vitamins Two must takes on my list because not only do they taste good, but they provide the nutrients you need without swallowing a nasty horsepill!
