I am 25. last year in July I lost my mother to an extremely rare form of cancer. I can totally relate to the article above. My family, though we ate a lot at home where serious meat people, and not into organic food. When my mom died my husband and I started to look at what we eat, and made some serious changes. We eat more organic foods and drastically reduced our meat intake. I have also found that doing yoga is my way of prevention. My mother's death, though extremely sad, has had a positive impact on my life and how I live it. I love the article above. It's nice to know, the feelings of fear that I have towards my own body is not something I have to deal with alone.
Unfortunately, my childhood was spent having a father who was in and out of hospitals. I lost him when I was 13 years old. Today I work on taking care of my body, a vigorous yoga practice, weight lifting and aerobics. I can safely say that no one eats better than we do. I spend a lot of time in the kitchen preparing beautiful, organic, sugar-free vegan quality meals. If we don't take care of ourselves, no one else will.
Stay well and keep smiling,
very inspiring as I deal with my own bout of depression that has me very unmotivated. Yoga however has been all I look forward to.
