Actually, William Li, Medical Director at Angiogenesis Foundation, states that we can EAT to starve cancer. He discusses a new way to think about treating cancer and other diseases. Anti-angiogenesis...preventing the growth of blood vessels that feed a tumor. The crucial step involves eating cancer-fighting foods that beat cancer at its own game.

As promised from my last post, EPIPHANY, here is the video I spoke about. It's about 24 minutes. So be sure you have the time to watch it all the way through.

Angiogenesis. Is this really a NEW way? Perhaps to some individuals. However...

Dr. Otto Heinrich Warburg won a Nobel Peace Prize in 1931 sharing his scientific studies on how cancer cells can not grow where there is oxygen. Let me say this another way...


Why didn't the oncologists share this study with me when I was diagnosed with Rhabdomyosarcoma 19 years ago?

I first learned about Dr. Otto Warburg's study 3 years ago, while I was attending a raw food detox establishment, Optimum Health Institute (OHI), in San Diego. I went there seeking a natural alternative way to cure a medical issue that had been keeping me and my doctors in the dark for about a year.

You can watch me explain my situation in an episode of IN THE BATH WITH KATH. Bathtub and bubbles included!

I rant about the harmful effects of aspartame which I will go into further on another post. However, I want to share the video now, so you can hear how I healed myself with natural healthy raw food.

For one week at OHI, I ate and drank live raw organic vegetarian meals consisting of sprouts, greens, fruits, vegetables, enzyme-rich rejuvelac (a naturally fermented, nonalcoholic beverage) and sauerkraut.

I also juiced my own Wheatgrass twice a day. It is very crucial to the program because it is a powerful detoxifier. It is an excellent source of chlorophyll, high in iron, oxygen, and enzymes and is one of the richest sources of vitamins A, B, and C. It increases red blood-cell count, lowers blood pressure and stimulates the metabolism and thyroid gland. The enzymes and amino acids found in wheatgrass can protect us from carcinogens like no other food or medicine.

There is a plethora of other amazing things that wheatgrass has been known to help cure. To find out more, read some excerpts from The Wheatgrass Book by Ann Wigmore.

I hope I have inspired you a bit to take a look at what you are feeding your bodies. Incorporate more fresh fruits, vegetables, raw nuts and fish into your diet. Leave out the bread, pasta, dairy, candy and chips. It may be hard at first, but once you do, you will feel an incredible surge of energy that will inspire you to achieve those goals you have been setting aside for days, weeks and even years.

Clear your body, clear your space, clear your mind.

Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, said it best...

Let food be thy medicine and

let medicine be thy food.


  1. this OHI place...my best friend from h.s. went to Nevada (i think) and had a liver cleansing a few years ago. 3-day process or so. as a result of this process, she was made privy to all sorts of foods (among other things) she was allergic to and/or the doctors found other things that were potentially harming her body. i.e. - they asked her if she'd ever been around metal polishing solvents (something like that) turns out her father was in the tool & die business and worked with these ingredients in his business. she'd been exposed to potentially toxic substances (at least, toxic to her system) since childhood. explained a lot of things she was experiencing in her life. certain wines, dairy products, certain types of make-up (she's a model), spices...she either confirmed things she knew she had a reaction to OR she discovered new things she was allergic to.

  2. Hi, Marisa...'have been cured (thanks to the Veterans Administration's medical pro's) of a similar situation; your words are poignant, inspirational of course and--as are you--beautiful in an abiding, important way.
    As I write this from a pre-Burning Man fest up near San Francisco (might not make it to Monday night's class)...where That-Which-Matters is celebrated...it's particularly nice to wrap thoughts around a few epiphanies inspired by your words: 1. Everything can have a purpose--everything--even the very bad--but it can take courage, guts, determination--that for which you should give yourself a lot of credit. 2. We live in a good time, historically, for getting smarter re: diets such as anti-cancer ones--one example is how relatively easy it is to eat--literally--"nuts & berries"; dehydrated foods not long ago a big/overpriced deal typically sold only at camping stores...now?--two words: Trader. Joes. Same with the word "organic"--which is increasingly appreciated by us consumers & more more accurately used in labeling.
    3. An agenda of mine is to call colon cancer, "large intestine" cancer because (a.) I think a percentage (to be determined) of people might be a little more comfortable pursuing getting tested. (b.) Even to have had (& been cured of) it--just "ain't" that embarrassing--mine was up under my rib cage on my tummy.
    (c.) Also--as an actor--the scar CAN be used for dramatic purposes. SCENE: Beach. MALE to FEMALE: "I was in 2 wars...[dramatic pause] & I don't [pause] like to talk about it..." Okay...the "2 wars" part is true...the rest is...a demonstration that...comedy is difficult.
    The inspiration you give from your work can be far & wide and beneficial to those you'll never meet...as well as us lucky ones. So...thank you...good luck..."break a leg" and I'm awfully glad you're with us today. 'not said lightly...as we know.
