Health and wellness
Something really cool!
Anytime a new health fad or new discovery is made in the health arena, I try to check it out and be the proverbial 'guniea pig' so to speak. Recently I read an article on MSN about how this woman in Australia had cured her cancer, I believe it was thyroid cancer, eating these three fruits, pineapple, kiwi and papaya. ( I'm going to post the video below for you all to watch, it's really quite amazing. Now being a Holistic type person, I have always tried to do things naturally and have whole heartedly believed that what you eat all the time directly either destroys or enhances your body and mind.
These particular three foods, especially pineapple, contain a complex mixture of substances called bromelain which is a protein-digesting enzyme. Basically eating these fruits that contain bromelain, can eat away at the protein base around tumors, growths and even certain types of cancers. Excessive inflammation, excessive coagulation of the blood, and certain types of tumor growth may all be reduced by therapeutic does of foods containing bromelain.
After reading this, it stored it in the back of my brain for later use. A girlfriend of mine and I were having lunch and she began to tell me that after an extensive ultrasound to find out why she wasn't getting pregnant, doctors discovered she had many, and I think the number she said was like 30!, polyps in her uterus! Wow! She was scheduled for a polypectomy in 6 weeks. They had figured she had had the polyps for quite sometime and this procedure could possible get rid of them and perhaps help in her dream of becoming a mom. After hearing this, I told her what I had just read and thought maybe she might want to try it. I wasn't sure she would take my advice, but she said she would look into it and we left it at that. (BTW, after I had read the article, I started adding more of these three fruits to my raw shakes in the morning!)
I saw her again, after her procedure, and asked her how it went. She was bouncing off the walls with excitement.
"They didn't find anything!"
I looked confused.
"They didn't find anything! After you and I had lunch that day, I went straight to the store and bought organic pineapple, kiwi and papayas and since then have been making shakes with them every morning. The day of my surgery, doc came in and said 'I didn't see any polyps. Nothing was there!"
She believes, and so do I, that eating and drinking these fruits really made a difference in her healing. The only thing she had done differently was add these to her diet every morning. My friend was really excited and still has her pineapple shakes every morning. I'll keep you posted when she gets pregnant!!
So, I truly believe that food can heal, food can cure and pure, clean food can and does keep your body running optimally. This is just one of many many stories I hear all the time from friends and clients who have discovered the power to heal themselves through nutrition. It works people!!
