This month I would like to share with you one example of someone with an amazing story about her process of healing from breast cancer by incorporating the W.E.L.L.N.E.S.S.© practices we have just been sharing these last 6 months. Julia Chiappetta was first diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 44. She was training for a triathalon at the time and leading a very busy life that included international travel to meet with clients. She had been doing self exams and noticed that something felt different. She went to the doctor who felt that it was nothing to worry about but Julia knew this was not the normal lump she had felt previously and pushed for a biopsy. Reluctantly the surgeon agreed.
Julia had good intuition because the biopsy and subsequent staging found that she had Stage IIb invasive ductal breast cancer. She was in shock! Being an athlete however, she did not let this news stop her; she began her journey by focusing on the “finish line”. She started researching and learning everything that she could do to try to reverse this disease. She started by enlisting the help of a colleague with a science and medical background. Together, they researched all possible modes of treatment, resources and integrative therapies. She went for consultations with some of the best doctors in the country and had surgery to remove the lump. She also prayed and asked God for peace and guidance and she began taking control of her own health. She started clean eating by eating organic foods, vitamins and supplements and did a total detox of her environment. This meant going thru every room and removing anything that was potentially toxic from cleaners to beauty products to chemicals to pesticides and even ending a relationship that she felt was not good for her health. She had periodic checkups with her doctors where they would monitor her cancer markers and toxins and she would adjust her protocol and lifestyle based on the results.
Today she remains cancer free and is loving her life. She was one of the first people who was entered into the Radical Remission Project to share her story of courage and healing from cancer by incorporating the 9 Key Factors that can make a real difference. Julia is a Champion for Healing and considers herself the CEO of her own health! I love Julia’s story and as you can see, true healing is possible! May you live your Good, Better, Best Life through W.E.L.L.N.E.S.S.© through clean eating and clean living! To learn more about Julia go to http://www.juliachiappetta.com
