My friend and fellow health coach, Leann Forst will be talking with me today about what to do if you’re diagnosed with cancer. This is a new topic to my blog, and I couldn’t think of a better person to be discussing this with.
Leann is a Board Certified Holistic Health Practitioner and a Family Health and Cancer Coach. She holds a Master’s degree from Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa and a Bachelor of Science from Upper Iowa University. She is accredited by the American Association of Drugless Practitioners. And she is an award winning author of “How to Get Your Kids to Beg for Veggies” and “100 Ways to Lose Weight.”
As a wife of a brain cancer survivor, Leann has a special interest in anti-cancer nutrition and detoxification. She works with individuals and groups, and speaks regularly at hospitals, schools and organizations.
Leann teaches people how to obtain optimal health by getting to the root cause of chronic and inflammatory conditions. She uses healing modalities such as nutrition, supplement protocols, and natural solutions.
In 2013, 3-weeks after Leann had graduated from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, she got her first client—her husband. He’d been diagnosed with brain cancer. The tumor, which was the size of an apricot, was blocking his spinal fluid and threatening his life. He went through four brain surgeries and radiation treatments, and after a 9-month journey, there was still some of the tumor left that the doctors couldn’t get to. His radiologist stressed however that good nutrition and clean living could really go a long way to boost his immunity and to disintegrate the rest of the tumor.
Encouraged by this, Leann helped her husband through a bunch of different protocols. She used nutrition, supplements and holistic and conventional testing to get to the root cause of the cancer.
An important thing to stress here is that cancer is not just bad luck. In fact, 95% of the time, there’s something that got you there, whether it’s diet, lifestyle, environment, or a mix. The good news however, is that 95% can be potentially reversed through diet, lifestyle and environmental changes.
So what is cancer and what can you do if you’ve been diagnosed with it? Listen in as Leann answers my questions, and offers some great advice for those diagnosed with this awful disease.
