Three years ago, I experienced a sharp pain while on vacation and decided to do a breast self-exam right away. To my personal disbelief, I discovered a pea-sized lump. It made certain dietary and lifestyle changes immediately, eliminated certain foods, started juicing vegetables, and included cancer-fighting products into my diet.
As unbelievable as it seems, not only did I got rid of my cancer, I also lost 24 pounds without even trying. Ironically, I had been earlier trying really hard to lose those pounds, but my attempts always proved unsuccessful. This time, I melted away my fat while eating even more than before. In addition to this, my skin glowed, my bowel movements improved, and I started sleeping much better.
Along the way, the 12 things below helped my keep my health under control:
