|My mother 4 months before she died holding my daughter|
My mother died of Ovarian Cancer after she battled with it for 2 years. With in those two years we dealt with it head on! We began submerging ourselves with every book on Cancer you could find. We discovered a vast amount of information concerning the disease, unfortunately it was just to late for my mother to change her entire way of life. All of the key things to do for her body was 20 years to late. Lately I've been thinking, are we all just silently waiting for our doctors to say us, "You have, cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure, heart failure, etc?" Until Sunday night, somewhere in the deep dark crevices of my brain this is exactly what I’m secretly dreading to hear about, my loves ones or myself! Forks over Knives has changed my life forever…..
We sat down Sunday night with the kids and watched this documentary; I believed it had a profound affect on all of us! My 11 year old said, “Mommy I’m going to eat this last piece of chocolate cake and then it’s all fruit tomorrow!” I’m sure this transition will take a minute, however I’m excited that they became so invested in the information they received.
I think what grabbed my attention the most was the fact that people turned their cancer, heart disease and diabetes completely around by simply and completely changing their diets. One gentlemen went from taking 9 pills a day to NONE! When my mother died she left a pharmacy of meds, drugs like, dilauded, roxecet (pill, liquid and patch), morphine, and a bunch more I can’t even spell! We spent so much money on her meds and in the end she died. I could have made thousands on the meds she left behind!
What this documentary has shown me is that I don’t want to keep ingesting
If I'm allowed 20 or 30 more years I want to see these little people grow up and have babies I can hold with out the assistance of a drug!
