Phil had been a patient of mine for quite awhile, primarily for a quite unfortunate reason: he had terminal cancer.
Over the prior weeks and months, I had counseled him on his treatment options, encouraging him to seek out non-traditional methods of healing.
But even I, the author of multiple best-selling books on Self-Healing, was shocked at the results he had just shared with me.
As I watched Phil through my office window, he walked to his car, pulled out of the parking lot, and glided away out of sight.
And all I could think about was what he told me:
"Dr. Fab, I've been following this new regimen and was just told that my latest tests came back and showed that the tumor has reduced in size..."
Phil was a smart guy - and he had done his research. After traditional pharmaceutical options failed to make any improvements, he opted to pursue alternative approaches, including nutritional treatments for cancer patients.
This treatment was no joke, either.
Phil and I had found a specialized Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine and a team of 3 naturopaths who were the perfect team to help.
Their practice based treatments on the huge amount of research and clinical evidence that showed that a plant-based diet can slow or reverse tumors within the body.
At the time, even I believed this was a last resort for Phil.
After all, cancer is one of the most feared diseases facing humanity. And at Phil's late stage, the odds were against him.
Which is why I was even more shocked when he shared the news.
What fascinated me about this experience was the ability for Phil's body to self-heal with the simplest changes.
I thought to myself, "if Phil's body can fight a tumor with nutritional changes, what can our own healthy bodies do with a full range of self-healing practices?"
