In 1985, when today's special guest, Dr. Marilyn Joyce, was at the peak of her career and feeling like she had achieved the ultimate success, she was diagnosed with melanoma. She was shocked to discover how serious that illness was, and as if that wasn't enough, a week out of hospital, she was rushed back in again with stage four uterine cancer. She was only 35 years old! Shocked and dismayed, she experienced what most advanced cancer patients do--denial, anger, resentment, frustration, and feeling like a victim. After she passed the initial shock of the diagnosis, she tried everything she could in search of a magic bullet. Yet four years later, she was in a wheelchair at 88 pounds, and according to doctors, with only a week-and-a-half to live.
Completely spent, she had no energy for anything. And as if the cancer itself wasn't enough, the stress and anxiety of searching for--and trying--every new treatment available was definitely taking its toll! She was stressed out, tired out, frustrated, anxious and depressed...and in constant pain.
With her finances low and not having eaten solid foods for months, she attended a home show that promoted a Vita Mix machine, introducing her to cantaloupe ice--seeds and all. From that moment, her journey back to health began, first with the inclusion of fruits, then adding in vegetables, and eventually tofu, soy, and whole grains - in other words whole foods in whole food forms - back-to-basics nutrition. The best part: almost all of recipes only took 5 minutes to prepare!
Now after 27 years, Marilyn is one of the world's leading experts on INSTANT E.N.E.R.G.Y.™: The 5 Keys to Unlimited Energy & Vitality! which is also the name of her book.
