Shape Magazine Article-The Woman who Saved My Life

This month Shape Magazine interviews me about the affect my mother's diagnosis has had on my life. Her diagnosis has changed my life in so many ways. Although cancer can be caused by many external environmental factors,  cancer also runs in my family making me more at risk than others, where cancer is not prevalent in their family history.  This has inspired me to do everything I can to stay not just cancer free but disease free.  Eating a diet full of  fresh organic fruits and vegetables, drinking plenty of water, and keeping stress levels down by doing lots of yoga and meditating all help me to do so.  Adopting a holistic lifestyle like I have does not ensure you will stay disease free but it does lower your chances dramatically of developing cancer and other diseases. Besides, it ensures that you treat your temple with the respect and love it deserves. Love to you Mother and many thanks for teaching me to love my mind, body and spirit. The light in me honors the light in you. Namaste

Hey Dena,

This is an important issue. I hope that your mother is going to be okay. In my opinion having a a healthy life will not only safe you from many illnesses, but will also make you one happier and smiley person. I must go now - be well :)
