Clean up your diet and your health

As a 2x cancer survivor, I know firsthand that eating healthy can literally save your life. Clean up your diet today and reap the benefits.

For as long as I can remember clean eating has been a huge part of my world.

As a journalist, I sought out top experts in the field and picked their brains. With every interview, I grew more and more knowledgeable and I was compelled to share everything I learned with viewers and friends on Facebook.

As a two-time cancer survivor, I know firsthand that eating healthy can literally save your life, and the need to share what I know is more urgent.

That’s the origin of my personal battle cry to #ArmorUpforLIFE — I am asking everyone to take their eating and their health to the next level.

Some Suggestions:

  • Challenge yourself to eat healthy, eat clean and feel better
  • Read the labels, eat food with few ingredients
  • If you can’t pronounce each ingredient it’s likely your body can’t recognize them or process them properly
  • Cut the white flour, cut out the sodas, cut out the food dyes, additives, preservatives, synthetics and chemical products
  • Go back to the way eating used to be before food manufacturers started adding so much processed junk to our food
  • Go back to a time when everything was grown in the garden and wasn’t sprayed… when it was organic
  • Look for locally grown, organically grown food
Roll back the clock with your diet, and give yourself a longer, healthier life.

As you transition to your new healthier life, I invite you to share your progress and insights below. Try overhauling some of your favorite recipes, to make them cleaner, and post them here. Tell the #ArmorUp for LIFE® community if you find a great new healthy product, or something else we should avoid. Let’s make this community driven and help one another #ArmorUpforLIFE. 

BTW, you can make some yummy desserts WITHOUT sugar just by substituting pureed figs, brown rice syrup or maple syrup.

Skin care during radiation treatment

When it comes to undergoing radiation for breast cancer the trick is to minimizing skin irritation to the areas of the chest that receive radiation. Too much skin desquamation (peeling) can interrupt or shorten treatment, so it’s important to stay ahead of the game to preserve and protect the skin.

You know your child better than anyone, and it’s up to you to decide when, how, and what to tell your child based on their developmental level. Just keep lines of communication open and listen to your child’s concerns. Let them know it’s okay to talk and ask questions even if they feel sad or upset.
