    Overcoming Lung Cancer with natural interventions is real.

    in Current Events

    Is the possibility of overcoming lung cancer a reality or a dream?  Is it a possibility that may work for others?  What if?  Why not?  Listen.
    My guest today is Carl O'Helvie, who has overcome lung cancer being told he had only 6 months to live.  He has written a book:  You Can Beat Lung Cancer:  Using Alternative/Integrative Interventions which clearly outlines his experience.  But wait, think that he just did this on a fluke?  No, he had that diagnosis 38 years ago.  His health has been maintained by the therapies he uses to this day.
    If you are facing a challenge in health, it does not have to be cancer, but either way, there are simple things you can add to your daily life to improve your health.  With all the environmental and food changes it may not be a good idea to wait until the C word hits you and be proactive now. 
    Carl will be sharing all his hits and misses on his path to being well all these decades.  It does not have to be a death sentence with a severe illness and we welcome your questions during the show.  You may also purchase his book here and this is the website for more information. 
    Looking forward to hearing how you enjoyed the show.
