It is believed by many that a cancer diagnosis can only be fought with powerful chemicals and other harmful methods, including chemotherapy and radiation. However, when David Lingle was diagnosed with leukemia, he knew the traditional treatments were not for him. Read on to learn about this inspiring man who beat his Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia all-naturally, avoiding the harmful and unpleasant side effects of most typical cancer treatments.
The first thing that David did to beat his cancer was to re-think the foods he kept at home. All processed foods were removed from the house and eliminated from his diet entirely. This includes potato chips, fast food, frozen meals, and much more. His meals were transformed to include flax oil, cottage cheese, and ground flax seeds with some organic blueberries.
David would then make a drink with the following ingredients:
- New Zealand Barley Grass Powder
- Dr. Schulze’s Superfood Powder
- One World Whey Protein
- Chlorella powder
- Medicalicious Protein Powder by Balance Nutraceuticals
This drink along with the cottage cheese mixture, ground flaxes seed, organic blueberries, and Budwig flax oil would make up his breakfast and lunch meals. David also drank organic green tea throughout the day.
Juicing also became a major part of his life. Some of the best items to juice and consume regularly include:
For another snack or to bolster his lunch, David would also include a smoothie with some steel oats, avocado, apples, chia seed, and lettuce.
Dinner was mostly made up of a large salad with a variety of organic, leafy green vegetables, and for a little more sustenance, he incorporated some dried, organic beans or an organic pasta dish every once in awhile. If he needed more snacks, David turned to healthy sources of protein such as Brazil nuts and almonds.
David also made it a point to spend more time outside. Yard work, gardening, and walking the dog are his main sources of exercise and are all good examples of low-impact, moderate cardiovascular workouts. Being outside is also proven to boost mood and provide the body with necessary vitamin D. He also took advantage of his sauna at home and incorporated hydrotherapy into his day, by alternative sessions of hot and cold water during his showers.
Perhaps the biggest factor to David was his optimism. In order to recover, it is crucial to believe that you can and will recover and get your life back.
“The main things for me during my healing journey were my faith in God along with juicing and eating lots of fresh organic green vegetables, most of them raw. Also, you must believe in yourself and that you CAN heal, otherwise, no matter what you do, you will not get the results you want.
The only concern I had with this diet was what I could take for low blood sugar. I am not the typical diabetic as I have very few high blood sugars; mine goes low and can drop very fast. So what I do is drink organic rice milk when my blood glucose is low. My other concern was my weight. I weighed 168 lbs at the time of diagnosis and I lost 13 lbs during the first year and a half. I have added Raw Organic Protein Powder and One World Whey Protein Powder to my green drink each day and my weight is back up to 162 lbs. I am still juicing and staying on my diet and will never go back to my old lifestyle. Surprisingly, my low blood sugar has also improved dramatically on this diet.”
