Dr. Mark Hyman stated, “Food has the power to heal us. It is the most potent tool we have to help prevent and treat many of our chronic diseases.”
Now, keeping in that in mind, let us ask…if you owned a Ferrari, would you fill it up with unleaded gasoline?
That Ferrari is an intricately made, very expensive and high-powered machine. You’d only use the premium fuel…well, if you want it to last, that is.
So, how can it be that most people don’t consider that there’s a relationship with the food (aka. fuel) they put into their body and how well their body functions?
God created us with trillions of cells in our body and each cell has receptor sites for certain nutrients, i.e. fats, carbohydrates, proteins, etc. This wasn’t done by coincidence. It was done out of intelligent design. And the creator knew that we needed nutrients to keep us healthy and strong!
In fact, your gut, which is the receptor of the food (fuel) you take in, is actually in charge of over 80% of your immune system. And your immune system is the system that proactively fights disease if you’re strong enough or reactively fights disease if you’re sick.
All this to say, what you eat plays a major role in your ability to not just THRIVE through cancer, but it also improves your chances of beating this disease!
So, here are 5 foods to stay away from:
- Conventional Animal Products
- Dirty Dozen Produce

Gianna’s Story with KICKcancER:
(This is shared by Gianna’s mom, Heather.)
Right after our daughter was diagnosed, we knew that there had to be supplements to the routine treatment. So, a friend sent us in the direction of Season.
I began following her blog and watched her THRIVE through cancer, and it changed our daughter’s cancer journey completely. We cut sugars and began eating healthy, whole, organic foods. I added helpful spices, like Turmeric to our everyday eating and used essential oils on a daily basis. We started to lead a healthier lifestyle.
Our daughter rocked her cancer treatments! She was never sick throughout treatments and did so well during the entire journey. People were amazed to learn that she was actually fighting cancer because she looked and acted so well. I’m sure it was a combination of prayers and our lifestyle changes, but she literally thrived through a very hard time.
We owe so much to KICKcancER and Season for the help and tips and support as we journeyed through a tough time. It changed our lives and truly helped our daughter THRIVE!!
- According to Sandeep Agarwal (Pure Indian Foods), “Turmeric is the number 1 spice or herb in the world that stops cancer in 100 different pathways.” Turmeric is also a fat soluble nutrient, which means that it needs to be consumed with fat in order to be properly absorbed and digested. So, we love this Turmeric Ghee as a wonderful way to get a healthy source of both the spice and fat. To use it, simply add 1 tablespoon to broth, rice, soups, veggies, etc.
- We also love Turmeric Essential Oil. You can easily apply 1-2 drops onto the bottoms of the feet 2x/day to be able to experience the amazing benefits that Turmeric provides.
