Why Did I Get Cancer?

Why Did I Get Cancer?

I did all the right things to prevent getting cancer. A certified health coach, nutritionist & wellness speaker, I thought I’d be the last person to be diagnosed with breast cancer. Why did I still get it? Was there something else I could have done to prevent it? A couple years later, I am grateful to be cancer-free and now I’m on a mission to share everything I’ve learned about mitigating risk, managing symptoms, and staying mentally well when bad things happen – even if you “did everything right!” ‘Why Did I Get Cancer‘ features: • Eye-opening information about health/cancer risks that surround us (and solutions to mitigate risks) • Health & lifestyle tips to lower risk (easier and quicker than you’d think!) • Inexpensive solutions for lowering cancer risk DISCLAIMER: The information provided on this podcast pertaining to your health or wellness, or any other aspect of your life is not intended to be a substitute for the professional medical advice, diagnosis or treatment provided by your own Medical Provider or Mental Health Provider.

    33. MOLD: Can That Musty Smell Make You Sick?


    I learned much from today's podcast with mold expert Bridgit Danner.

    I've never given much thought about mold and the impact it could have on chronic disease or even cancer!

    When Bridgit explained that chemical warfare is often made from a mold, she got my attention!

    If mold is strong enough to be used in a bomb, what kind of havoc can it create in my body?

      The most notorious mass murder in Ohio’s history happened on the night of April 21, 2016 in rural Pike County.

As events unfold and new crimes are uncovered, what will it mean for all involved? What will it mean for Pike County?
