I have “One Life to Live” and in “Search for Tomorrow” to be with “All My Children.” That’s what it seems like when you are diagnosed with acute appendicitis and colonic carcinoma, a rare form of cancer that affects 3 percent of patients between 20 and 40 years old.
When I learned what acute appendicitis and colonic carcinoma could do to the body, I thought about Mr. Efrain Ramos, who was told there wasn’t much that could be done to prolong his life. It had been nearly an impossible journey to health and wellness, but he wasn’t ready to give up – not yet.
I had been working with cancer patients and others with chronic health problems for weeks at the resort in Spokane, Wash., but I was hired last week to go to San Diego, Calif., to assist Mr. Ramos in reversing his stage IV cancer. He had surgery six months ago to remove a large mass in his colon, but opted to refuse chemotherapy.
Mr. Ramos pointed out to me that his family and friends had nudged him to get the treatment to sustain his life. But let me say here in this column that, knowing the side effects to chemotherapy, if he had yielded to their wishes while his body was in its weakness state, the “poison” could have — and would have — altered his life completely and possibly end in death.
After talking to Mr. Ramos — who is 35 years old, 5 foot 5 and weighs 204 lbs — he indicated to me that he wanted to develop a nutrition program; he wanted to try natural therapies to fight his cancer. He said he’d known all along that a change in diet could reverse his cancer if he approaches nutrition the right way. That’s why he asked for my assistance.
I’d noticed the look in Mr. Ramos’ eyes after I agreed to help transform his life. He was like a child being dropped off to school for the first time, not knowing what the outcome would be, but expecting something good to happen nonetheless. There was uncertainty on his part, but we went right to work.
When you’re part of a large family and looked upon for support while you’re fighting for your life, it can be quite devastating. That’s what Mr. Ramos was facing, along with fighting cancer. But dreaded diseases can be overcome with the right diet. It depends on what you eat and how well you take care of your body.
Taking care of your body is paramount and no different than changing the filters in your automobile and home. We do this seasonally, but do we check our own filters around the clock? We’re even too busy to get a yearly physical to see what’s going on with our mind, body and spirit.
We must listen to the voice inside because it talks to us all the time and gives us a warning. In talking to 10 to 15 cancer survivors, the number one thing that gets them back on the road to recovery is realizing that their life matters. They cannot please their family and friends, though.
Now, Mr. Ramos’ family and friends are happy that he chose the path to nutrition, because it reversed his cancer and extended his life. Now he’s cancer free. His life is impacting so many people, including family and friends, who are now making important health decisions.
“At first I wasn’t sure what I’d get, but I’ve gotten so much more,” said Mr. Ramos, giving me a thumbs up for helping to turn his life around. “I wanted to share this great resource … the person who had allowed me to nurture my body.”
We must make our own choices in life, of course. Some are good, some not so good. But when it comes to our health, we must make simple changes and decide what is more important to us. If we neglect our body, just like anything else, it will break down.
A health crisis usually arises, for example, when we consume processed food and don’t get enough exercise. Walking would be a start. These are simple tasks. However, when faced with death, how would you cope knowing that your death sentence was imposed by your fork and spoon?
When dealing with weight gain or weight problems everyone’s body functions different. We must eliminate all processed foods that have now nutritional value. There are 7 foods or beverages you should stay away from and there is a chance by consuming these foods, that you could possibly get a disease.
If your Diabetic avoid theses at all cost

1 of 3 U.S. adults is at high risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
Get the facts about diabetes in the 2011 National Diabetes Fact Sheet
Nearly 26 million Americans have diabetes, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) new estimates. Further, an estimated 79 million U.S. adults have prediabetes, a condition in which blood sugar levels are higher than normal, but not high enough to be considered diabetes. Prediabetes raises a person’s risk of type 2 diabetes, heart disease and stroke.
Diabetes affects 8.3 percent of all Americans, and 11.3 percent of adults aged 20 years and older, according to the 2011 National Diabetes Fact Sheet. About 27 percent of those with diabetes – 7 million Americans – do not know they have the disease. Prediabetes affects 35 percent of adults aged 20 years and older.
Other data from the fact sheet:
• About 215,000 Americans younger than age 20 years have diabetes. Most diabetes among children and adolescents is type 1, which develops when the body can no longer make insulin, a hormone that controls the amount of blood glucose.
• An estimated 1.9 million Americans were diagnosed with diabetes in 2010.
• Racial and ethnic minorities continue to have higher rates of diabetes after adjusting for population age differences. For adults, diabetes rates were 16.1 percent for American Indians/Alaska Natives, 12.6 percent for blacks, 11.8 percent for Hispanics, 8.4 percent for Asian-Americans, and 7.1 percent for non-Hispanic whites.

The 2011 National Diabetes Fact Sheet was prepared in collaboration with a number of agencies within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, other federal agencies, and the American Association of Diabetes Educators, the American Diabetes Association, and the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation
A recent analysis of causes of death and longevity in the U.S. by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention was eye-opening. For those born in the U.S. in 2007, their expected age span was 77.9 years. The most recent analysis revealed an unexpected decline; those born in 2008 could expect to live 77.8 years. According to the CDC this decline is due to an increase in deaths for those aged 85 and older in the years 2007 and 2008. While the risk of death has fallen for heart disease, accidents, and cancer, it has increased for kidney disease, Alzheimer’s disease, influenza, and pneumonia. The top 4 causes of death in the U.S. are as follows:
* Heart disease
* Chronic lower respiratory disease (including emphysema and COPD)
Yet, the total spent on healthcare (some would say it is disease care) in the U.S. is $2.47 trillion which totals 17.3% of the U.S. GDP. This figure far exceeds what is spent by any other industrialized country in the world. There are few who would say the American medical system is a good value. This is clearly reflected in the link to chronic disease, lifestyle choices, of the top 4 causes of death. We excel in technology and emergency care but there is little progress to prevent and treat chronic disease. This situation is very costly, affects American’s quality of life, and ultimately how long they live in addition to how well they live.
Yet, NSHN recently spoke with Jack LaLanne who celebrated his 96th birthday September 14, born in 1914. He quipped “I can’t die; that would be bad for my image” displaying a spirit far younger than his years, a new book, a new online project about seniors maintaining balance, and a continued zest for living well. His wife, Elaine, in her late 80s is another shining example of living long and living well. They rise each day to exercise, keep their minds active with various business projects, eat nutritiously and supplement wisely, and enjoy a glass of red wine together each evening. They recently headlined a conference on aging at the Arnold in Columbus, OH speaking with OSU experts who have confirmed exercise is good science. Generations of Americans have exercised watching Jack on television. He was the first in many fitness and healthy lifestyle endeavors as his web site cites. Click here to read further http://www.jacklalanne.com/jacks-adventures/firsts.php. His life is filled with humor, purpose, and dedication to healthy lifestyle choices. What a mentor to all of us who would want to sound like Jack at age 96.
Yet, what Jack lives each day is not the result of magic. While he and Elaine may have the genetics of long life in their families, Jack tells of his own ills in his twenties that motivated him to get active and nourish his body wisely. They have consistently stayed active each day, made wise choices in their diet, supplemented consistently in a wise fashion, and enjoyed each other and each day for many years and perhaps more to come. Mainstream academia science confirms that the lifestyle choices to which Jack and Elaine are dedicated could prevent or reverse the majority of heart disease and diabetes (type II). Yet, in clinical practice all too few doctors walk this talk. Those who do, the integrative medical community, remain the target of ridicule of their mainstream colleagues and often judged by another standard by their respective state boards of medicine. Recently, mainstream newspapers focused on a doctor and now his son who actually taught other doctors to cook and now speak to their patients about their diets as a novelty. What a shame!
My husband has a dear friend, a well respected physician in his late 60s. He worries about his blood pressure, his aching back, his cholesterol, and his weight. His anxiety about the medications he takes is sobering particularly because he takes a statin drug and a prescription Cox-II inhibitor long term. Yet, a big steak at dinner and a loaded baked potato only provoke taking a double dose of statin the next day. He truly has no training in nutrition, in lifestyle science, as do none of his colleagues. His continued decline has slowly prompted him to look beyond what pill can I take to address my symptoms. And, most of us would agree this physician is not an anomaly.
I recently chose to walk beside a business colleague diagnosed with terminal lung cancer in early summer 2010 through her treatment journey. She chose an integrative approach to her diagnosis, working with Dr. Ralph Moss, Dr. Moshe Frenkel, Dr. Charles Simone, and others to optimize nutrition, exercise, and address her spiritual and emotional health, along with taking a tough chemotherapy regime. Her oncologist, a lovely young physician, was brutally honest he knew nothing about anything other than the use of chemotherapy and radiation for her diagnosis. His one recommendation was to stop smoking. His prognosis was grim, 6-12 weeks to live. Yet, he was open, not judgmental, and supportive of her use of a multi-factorial integrative regime. Her most recent PET scans are so good the oncologist smiled from ear to ear delivering the results to her. Yet, no oncology nurse in the large practice where she was treated had any knowledge of diet, supplements, exercise, or lifestyle education for her or any other patient. The office had a large bowl of candy at the front desk and sold candy to support patients’ needs through the practice foundation.
I took “The Emperor of all Maladies, a Biography of Cancer” by Siddhartha Mukherjee, MD, with me on a short holiday treat and devoured it cover-to-cover. This oncologist wrote a fascinating 500+ page book about the history of cancer diagnosis and treatment. Yet, in a single line he acknowledged there had been little focus on diet, lifestyle (other than smoking related cancers), and nutrition with regards to cancer preventive and treatment although he acknowledged it would be good to do so. What a sad state of affairs that in the year 2011 the American population is virtually on their own regarding taking an integrated approach to a diagnosis of heart disease, diabetes, cancer, or other chronic condition. medical profession is ill-served by the lack of focus on the science of lifestyle education in medical school and the pressure to push medications and procedures in clinical practice.
The recent news focus on a doctor who put in over 30 cardiac stents in one day, doctors who did more questionable spinal fusion surgery than any others in the country being paid millions in fees from medical device manufacturers, and now a drug company behind a medical textbook cause an honorable profession to look as nothing more than show me the money. Dr. Mukherjee was right that patient activists including AIDS patients forever changed the practice of oncology. A growing number of Americans want to live long and live well.
