The food we eat and our daily activities are the ones that define our health. We all know that eating junk foods and too many sugary foods can result in obesity and chronic diseases such as diabetes, cancer, and heart diseases.
By plainly going for a healthier diet, a terminal disease has been managed to defeat by a man from Las Vegas without the help of conventional medicine.
Rob Mooberry, 43-year old, has beaten stage 4 colorectal cancer by going vegan and refusing conventional cancer treatments. In July 2012, Mooberry was hospitalized with a perforated colon.
Based on his medical analysis, he had cancer that had already spread to his liver, lymph nodes, and bowels. Being diagnosed with cancer was really a surprising one since Mooberry’s family had no history of it and he was living a healthy lifestyle as well. Some of the symptoms he experienced include bloating and bloody stools. He ignored these symptoms with the thought that it was only an irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
His doctors recommended that he needs to have a colostomy bag after an ileostomy, chemotherapy sessions, and radiation therapy. His doctors told him he only had an eight percent chance of living.
Mooberry was saddened because he was generally healthy all the time and then suddenly he was diagnosed with the terminal disease. Thinking of the side effects of the treatments he was about to undergo, he decided to do much more for himself and started on a healthier diet.
After his first surgery and chemotherapy sessions, Mooberry stopped taking medical treatments. His body couldn’t take any more those chemicals and needs to detoxify his system before taking more treatment.
He started an all-plant diet in November of 2012 knowing that tumors are being fed by sugars and highly-processed foods. In early 2013, his scan results showed that his cancer decreased by almost 80 percent and by 2014, there were no longer traces of cancer left in his body.
