Then I had to remind myself that nothing in life was guaranteed, EVER, not when I didn’t have cancer and not while I have cancer. So after about 2 months of toiling and basically freaking out 24 hours a day, I got control of the situation. You know what? I became the BOSS of my cancer. Taking that badass attitude towards my cancer was just what I needed! My funk gone…BOSS of CANCER IN!
I had a roadmap but I need to learn how to drive. So I did! Months of reading everything I could get my hands on…organic, non-gmo, fermented, non-dairy, Paleo, gluten-free, vegan, non-vegan, vegetarian, juicing, smoothies, kale, toxic, non-toxic, essential oils, real food, whole foods, Ketogenic diets, GAPS diet, hormone diet, probiotics, supplements, high alkaline, low acid…….AGHHHHH! No wonder people think chemo is easier than a healthy diet! Good lord! So I stressed myself out once again, but now it was about food. “OMG, will this kill me if I eat it…” mentality about everything. Not only that, I was driving my family up a wall! I was taking my BOSS position very seriously damn it! I had a knee-jerk reaction to the quality of food I was consuming. I threw everything in my pantry out and started all over. Trips to the grocery store were all day affairs because I was being SO careful! I went for the black and white approach…no middle ground. I became a food stress cadet! Toxic foods like non-organics, pre-packaged, and overly processed are bad for you, but you know what’s worse than that? STRESS! You see, if you are sooooo stressed about what you are putting into your body and whether it is good or bad for you (or in my case, will this cause cancer) that stress is worse than if you just ate a regular old American fast food, processed, sugary, chemically food diet! So from my stress and lessons learned I am here to teach THE COLORFUL MIDDLE!
Here I am, cancer no longer bosses me around! For the past 6 years I have been working hard to learn everything I need to know help as many people as I can. My cancer brought me the gift of my education and training. I am a Certified Holistic Nutritionist, Certified Holistic Cancer Coach, Host of Fork It Over Radio On 1310KFKA, founder of go2kitchens.com and creator of Any Stage Cancer Nutrition Protocol. What a journey it has been…and it is only the beginning. As I help people across the globe navigate cancer with confidence and teach them to become their own CANCER BOSS, I know that my cancer was destined to change millions of peoples lives. See that is how cancer becomes such a blessing! Are you the CANCER BOSS you want to be?
