They accepted doctors’ advice to begin chemotherapy, but they knew that there must also be other things they could do. On its own, chemocan cause even more cancer. In a couple of days, Natasha became acquainted with renowned author Deliciously Ella and started fighting cancer with proper nutrition.

Even though her health was rapidly declining, Natasha’s radical change to her diet helped her immensely. Contrary to everyone’s expectations, she started looking better while on chemo. Her friends were simply amazed at her glow. Moreover, the newly acquired diet changed her outlook and improved her emotional state.
“I used the foods to power up my immune system and that helps me because my blood is then ready for chemo,” Natasha said, as reported by the Daily Mail. “I noticed that every time I made a change to my diet, I saw a positive difference in how I felt.”
