There’s a phrase that became famous in the computer world called G.I.G.O.
It means “Garbage In, Garbage Out.” Basically, if you put bad information into a computer system, you’ll get bad information out of it.
When it comes to what you put in your body, I might want to modify that to say, “Garbage in, and it will create all sorts of havoc as it stays in your body.”
Here’s the reality, what you feed, grows.
If we are feeding our bodies with chemicals and toxins, disease and bacteria will grow inside of us. However, if we are nourishing our bodies with organic fruits, vegetables, and grass-fed and finished meats, life abounds.
As I researched the correlation between food and cancer, I immediately decided to revamp my diet. I eliminated all sugar (including honey and maple syrup), caffeine, grains, gluten, alcohol, and most dairy products.
The dairy that I did eat was very limited and was only organic, raw dairy. My diet primarily consisted of fresh vegetable juice, veggies, healthy fats, and some lean proteins like turkey and some wild-caught fish. I alternated between two juices every day. My first juice was eight ounces total of red cabbage, kale, romaine lettuce, green bell pepper, swiss chard, and lemon. The second juice was eight ounces of ¼ green apple and carrots. I alternated between the two for a total of thirteen times a day. I was also advised to eat a cup of fresh okra every day because of its powerful cancer-fighter properties! I also had one whole beet, three times a week while incorporating the Budwig Protocol (which can be found in the resources section of my eBook, “From Cancer to Victory”)
The first step in nourishing your body is to flood it with micronutrients. Micronutrients are going to be vitamins and minerals that can only be found in living foods.
As I mentioned before, I went into this battle with the mindset of a champion, so my approach to this was nothing short than intense! I invested in a juicer and I began juicing thirteen times a day. I went through three juicers in just a matter of one year.
Extreme? Maybe. But the fact is that when I changed my diet and replaced the things wreaking havoc in my body with foods that carried life, I knew it was working because three months later there were no more signs of cancer.
Did you hear what I just said? After being given only a year to live, I was cancer-free in just three months!
So yes, it really does matter what we put in our body.

Thank you so much!!
Janet you are very welcome!
To your health,
I love your post.
Thank you for them.
My journey with health and juicing brought a different result.
I found some of my favorites veggie greens.. spinach , beets and avacados were the culprit. Oxalate “stoner’s” ( as we so lovingly refer to ourselves”) have to tread lightly on the health path that is the norm for most.
After years of study and finding they right info sources.. I can say that I’m stone free.
My journey as of late has been to understand why my body does it instead of just treating it. Understanding the why’s..
Your blogs and posts are definitely one of the things that brings nourishment on that Journey.
Thank you so much????
Thank you for sharing! How right you are. The way we go about health is not a “one fits all” approach. We truly are our best advocates and finding what is right and unique for us is a journey for each of us. I’m glad you are understanding your “why’s” as this is key in every area of success in life. Thank you for the kind words and I’m thankful these blogs are nourishing to you as it’s always my intention!
To your unique health,
After reading Cancer to Victory I made the decision to clean up my nutrition. I did great for years, juicing, movement, organic, Years of battling Lupus subsided I found great health!I even wanted to help others so I completed a health coach certification program. Then…..I loss my job, my mom passed away, I lost focus, drive and I found myself gaining weight and feeling fatigue.
2 weeks ago I invested in a juicer (old one blew up over a year ago) and I’m back to juicing, organic and I’m working with a trainer at the gym starting Saturday. Thank you Andrea!
Thank you so much for sharing your story. I am very sorry for your loss. I must say as I read this I am reminded of my newest book I just wrote: “I am Resilient” and I am so encouraged by your tenacity and strength of getting back with it and not being knocked down and defeated. You Kari… Are Resilient!
What brand/ type juicer is best?
I would research them and choose which you like. You can’t go wrong with any. I always say…the best juicer is the one you will use.
To your health,
Thank you so much for this! I love ingrediants of the juices you share. Was wondering about your thoughts on the Bullet. I don’t have a juicer as I have always loved the texture of my drinks from the bullet. Do you think a juicer is better? Blessings ????
Blenders and juicers are both great but serve different purposes. Blenders will allow you to have all the fiber and pulp which is important for health. A juicer extracts the fiber and the nutrients go directly to your cells. Juicing is like getting an IV of nutrients directly into your cells. I incorporate both a blender and a juicer in my daily routine and lifestyle.
To your health,
Amen, it only makes sense! Eat living, green organic, and live! I am encouraged, yes what is the best juicer to have. I only have a little Ninja.
Janna I have 2 juicers. One is a cold press machine made by Hurom and I have one that is quick easy less expensive but is not cold press. You just need to drink the juice within 15 min to get the most nutrients out of it. That juicer is by Jack La Lane!
