At about this time, my mother developed ovarian cancer after 12 years on hormone replacement therapy. We went to several surgeons who declared her cancer inoperable. I took her to The Bristol Cancer Centre (now Penny Brohn Cancer Care) and learned the importance of a good positive, loving attitude, filtering your water and eating simple, chemical free food. We have filtered our water ever since and now have a whole house water filter, so we not only have chemical free water to drink but also to wash in, an important aspect of clean water that is often neglected.
My mother did not recover from her cancer and when she died in 1990, I decided that if I ever came across anything that could help prevent cancer in both people and animals, I would promote it.
My father also suffered from cardiovascular disease, having several heart attacks and strokes over the years, so genetically, I was doomed!! But it’s not our genes that dictate how we are! The genes carry all sorts of information, some good and some bad. It is the environment that surrounds those genes that determines their expression or supression! This is the study of epigenetics. Dr Bruce Lipton has been the most publicly active in this fascinating and rapidly progressing field which shows that the nutrients, hormones (messengers of emotion amongst other things), toxins and waste products which surround the cell determine the expression of the genes within. This is a huge part of the answer to my enduring question of why some people and animals become ill and some don’t.
