PART 1 - In today’s episode you can learn a lot about prevention of ANY health disease because when you can overcome cancer via nutrition you can heal pretty much everything else. Chris Wark will take you on a journey about how he made a very important decision to go against doctors orders which was to do chemotherapy and decide to do nutrition & lifestyle changes because it made so much more sense to him. Now with many years behind him he has learned even more, interviewed many of the great modern doctors that are using nutrition to heal diseases, & he is going to share it all with you in his 2 part interview! Remember that heart disease, diabetes type 2, obesity & many cancers are all lifestyle diseases & symptoms are our wake up calls to take action & make changes!

Hello my favorite podcast friends! I am super happy to be sitting here today with you & I am so looking forward to sharing this great story today. Every story of healing is a great story. Just think with all the millions of people in the world you can bet there are so many great stories out there……whether they are about natural cures or amazing recoveries from so called incurable diseases or maybe they are great stories of an amazing inventions, suggestion or knowledge we discovered that can be life changing to so many!
The bottom line is never give up, believe in the power to heal because as you have heard here on the vidalSPEAKS podcast it is not a fluke or any spontaneous remission whenperson heals themselves from an incurable disease. It is a radical change in diet & lifestyle and lots of hard work. And not only is it not a fluke but there is almost a guideline now that lays out the foundation for success and although many practitioners or doctors have their own protocols the fact is that 80% of the protocols all incorporate the same common VITAL steps in healing, which are: Plant based nutrition, Juicing, & detoxing along with emotional work in order to learn to let go of unhealthy emotions and deal with one that have not been dealt with. The one thing I would certainly recommend to any healing protocol is homeopathy and in serious cases as we have been hearing it would mean finding a classical homeopath to work with you. I would never attempt healing without homeopathy. Homeopathy has the ability to work deep on the emotions which are often the cause of disease & also has the ability to treat side effects of difficult treatments like surgeries, radiation & chemo if patients have chosen to do that.
This week my friend Ellen, who chose not to do chemo and radiation against the advice of her doctors … & instead healed her breast cancer with homeopathy, nutrition & lifestyle changes … along with much work on balancing her stress & emotions, told me of a crazy situation. She said that her friend told her that she should never act like she healed her cancer with a specific protocol that can be taught to others because it was all luck and she should never encourage others to do what she did!!! Can you believe that? Why is it that many are so surprised or worried when someone chooses to not follow traditional treatment when faced with a devastating health diagnosis. when people are dying every day having done traditional therapy? Is it because they don’t learn about any of the thousands and thousands of healing stories where many terminal diseases are being reversed with all kinds of nutritional & alternative therapies or is it that they are too much in their belief system to look outside their view? I don’t know but I feel so sad for Ellen & all the other patients who work hard to heal themselves yet get NO credit at all that they did anything.
As you have heard from the stories of my guests, how hard it was for them when they chose a healing path that was different than what their friends & family believed in. This is obviously a big issue for many faced with a serious diagnosis, well today’s guest is NO different, although he stayed with his gut feeling to follow the path that made sense to him, it was against what all his family members wanted.

Chris Wark Bio
Now let me introduce you to Chris Wark
Chris is an author, speaker and health coach. In December 2003 Chris was diagnosed with Stage 3c colon cancer. There was a golf ball sized tumor in his large intestine & the cancer had spread to his lymph nodes. It was two days before Christmas, and he was 26 years old. His oncologist told him he was “insane” because he decided against chemotherapy after the surgery. After prayerful consideration he radically changed his diet & did every natural non-toxic therapy he could find.
Chris believes that despite what conventional doctors may have told you… your body can heal because the human body is intelligently designed to heal itself given the proper nutrients & care. He started his website ChrisBeatCancer.com and his blog to share his healing story & all he learned about nutrition & natural therapies for cancer. On his website he also shares many other cancer survivor healing testimonials & now gets over 1,000,000 visitors to his website each year.
Chris has lectured at many wellness events. He has made many appearances on radio & TV including The Ricki Lake Show & The Lisa Oz Show. He was also featured in The Truth About Cancer docu-series & in the documentary film The C Word. Chris inspires countless people to take control of their health and reverse disease with a radical transformation of diet and lifestyle.
Main points of the show as spoken by Chris Wark
- I get over 1,000,000 people to our website so things are changing regarding healing but it shows how our modern medical culture thrive on the sick.
- The main industry is pharmaceutical drugs that don’t cure anyone.
- They won’t make money telling people to change their diet, lose weight and clean up their life and get rid of their stress.
- I was diagnosed in 2003 with Colon cancer stage 3b. I was 26 years old
- I had so much abdominal pain that eventually I had a colonoscopy and they found a golf ball sized tumor in my large intestine or colon.
- I never dreamed I had cancer. It was not even on my radar and I had no family history of any cancer or knew anyone that had cancer then.
- 2 things I want to address: Colon cancer is a disease of old age historically and that is why insurance won’t cover a colonoscopy under age 50. The guidelines are changing.
- Sigmoidoscopy are no recommended as they only go 1/3 the way up.
- Also you should do a fecal occult blood test which is inexpensive. That is the cheapest way to do a first line of testing.
- Young adult cancers are on the rise and many say cancer is more common since we are living longer but that doesn’t make sense out of the fact that young adult rates are rising. Colon cancer is more prevalent in people in their 20’s.
- In Africa at one time their rate of colon cancer was 50x less than
- They live on beets, peas, grains like teff and vegetables and almost no meat and dairy. No sugar and salt as they eat a very high carb high starch diet.
- We have so much research about healthy cultures around the world but we are not paying attention to it.
- These cultures all move their bodies and eat mostly plant foods so now we can say we know what promotes health and longevity but that won’t make us money so now because of big corporations they just market all these process foods.
- We eat way more meat and dairy than is good for us.
- The government is subsidizing the grains so they can sell it to the beef and dairy industry and then they subsidize the beef and dairy farmers so we can buy it for so cheap.
- Back to my story… I did surgery and when I woke they told me it was worse than they thought and it had spread to my lymph nodes and that I would have to do a year of chemo and radiation.
- 2 things happened. First was the first meal they served me was a sloppy joe and that didn’t seem right. Second the doctor said I could eat whatever I want just not to lift something heavier than a beer.
- I didn’t want to do chemo because it didn’t make sense to me to poison my body more when I felt I needed to build my immune system to overcome it. I am an intuitive kind of guy and this was not jiving with me. I prayed about it and asked for God to show me another way… help!
- Then 2 days later my dads friend sent me a book called: Gods Way to Ultimate Health: Eliminating Sickness Thru Nutrition
- This guy was a minister and he had colon cancer. I started reading the book and the author was a pastor and his mother died doing chemo and he watched many church members die; then he got colon cancer and a friend told him to go on a raw food diet and juice carrots.
- There is a biblical precedence for it. This made more sense to me.
- I could see that I could have gotten sick by poisoning myself with bad food and I could heal doing what this book said.
- The further we get away from nature the more disease we will have and eating whole raw foods made sense. I converted over night.
- I started eating this huge giant cancer fighting salad every day… it was HUGE. See link below to get recipe.
- Most mornings I was juicing - I would drink 8 juices a day mostly carrot juice
- Mid afternoon I would have a giant smoothie.
- Dinner I would have the salad.
- Then I was losing to much weight and my nutritionist wanted to change things and have me eat more cooked foods.
- So I added cooked lentils and rice and fish 2x a week and many more cooked veggies.
- Eventually I learned I did better on cooked foods and learned so much that we don’t need to be raw to get the enzymes and nutrition and that in many foods they are not as nutritious raw as they are cooked.
- I used to eat fast food lunches, microwave breakfasts and if I ate a salad it was with chicken and ranch dressing.
- I went from eating 1-2 servings of veggies to 15-20 a day.
- It didn’t matter if I liked them I was determine I would do whatever it would take to get well and any of this is better than chemo.
- If you stop eating the junk food and sugar your tastebuds will change in 2 weeks.
- You can make delicious food once you get used to it.
- We know that cancer is not the problem it is the symptom of the disease so you have to make a change because cutting something out has not stopped the problem that built the tumor so you must change.
- Tumors are the symptoms of disease and if you cut it out your body will just grown another one unless you change and build the immune system.
- I started feeling great although I had lost weight and was orange from all the carrot juice but I felt really awesome. I was so excited.
- Once we modified my diet I did much better. It was 80% raw and 20% cooked for 2 years.
- Now I am 30% raw and 70% cooked because I do much better on cooked food and I learned that the healthiest cultures in the world are the Blue Zones and they are not raw.
- So I began to focus on eating tons of fruits and veggies and not worrying about being raw anymore.
- You don’t have to eat raw because your saliva is full of enzymes and makes what you need to digest. Spit in a pudding and you will see it will be liquid in minutes.
- Plus we may lose 15% of nutrients when we cook foods but then we eat more as they are condensed down so we actually get more nutrients.
- Cooking releases certain nutrients so it is not bad to cook food.
- A raw tomato has 15x less Lycopene than a cooked tomato.
- Now I help coach people to help them change their life and diet and I can use all I learned from all my coaches and people I have interviewed.
- People’s guts are a mess because they are eating destructive chemical foods so you have to get away from those foods.
- Aloe is a very good food for the gut.
- Fasting is great for the gut even juice fasting as it gives it a break from digesting.
- You have to stop feeding it the foods that are damaging the gut first though.
- You get protein from plants because the body takes the amino acids and builds proteins as it does with meat but also it does it with plants. Look at gorillas, hippos, cows they all eat only plants.
- I recommend B12, Vit D and very few supplements.
- Step 2 you need to eliminate oils.
- When you eat animal products you eat cholesterol but when you eat saturated fat like in coconuts your liver produces more cholesterol and I was using a whole can of coconut milk in my smoothies and my cholesterol went up so I stopped that once I learned that. It was 800 calories a day from that!
- No oil is good for you as it is too concentrated as it is extracted out of the whole food. Water fry or veggie broth fry
- When you have a diet that is high in fat you can’t absorb sugar fast enough and so it keeps your blood sugar high.
- You never find a food in nature that is high in fat AND high in sugar. Banana is high in sugar and no fat; avocado is high in fat and no sugar.
- There is a simple strategy to get your cholesterol down is to stop eating animal food and saturated fats from oils.
- Humans love to eat meat but we love good news about our bad habits so if they tell you like in Paleo meat is good then people will go for that diet!
dGREAT KEY NOTE
Cholesterol total should be under 150 is good under 120 would be like rural africans. If total cholesterol is 120 then your LDL will be low too and you won’t have to worry. But for sure it should be under 80.
So what did you guys think of Chris?
Be sure you stay tuned for Part 2 as he goes into even more detail about his thoughts on staying healthy and what you too can do to heal yourself.
I have a lot of respect for people like Ellen and all patients who have worked so hard to heal themselves and it is sad they don’t get any respect. Ultimately it is our own life and we should be allowed and supported to make the choice we really believe in.

Movies that Chris Recommends & his commentary on them
The Beautiful Truth: The World’s Simplest Cure For Cancer
Raised on a wildlife reserve in Alaska, 15-year old Garrett was interested in the dietary habits of their animals. After the tragic death of his mother, Garrett s father decided to home-school his son and assigned a book written by Dr. Max Gerson that proposes a direct link between diet and a cure for cancer. Garrett embarks on a cross-country road trip to investigate The Gerson Therapy. He meets with scientists, doctors and cancer survivors who reveal how it is in the best interest of the multi-billion dollar medical industry to dismiss the notion of alternative and natural cures.
Dying to Have Known: The Evidence Behind Natural Healing
Filmmaker Steve Kroschel goes on a 52-day journey to find evidence supporting the effectiveness of the Gerson Therapy — a long-suppressed natural cancer cure. His travels take him from Alaska to Mexico with stops in San Diego, New York, Japan, Holland and Spain. He presents the testimonies of patients, scientists, surgeons and nutritionists who testify to the therapy’s efficacy in curing cancer and other degenerative diseases, and presents the hard scientific proof to back up their claims. Testimonies include: a Japanese medical school professor who cured himself of liver cancer over 15 years ago, a lymphoma patient who was diagnosed as terminal over 50 years ago, as well as noted critics of this world-renowned healing method who dismiss it as pure quackery.
The Gerson Miracle
Through his own painful struggle with migraines, Dr. Max Gerson conceived a treatment based entirely on nutrition and the body’s own ability to heal itself. He cured his migraines and summarily concentrated on other methods that prove to naturally boost the immune system. Nine current and former patients speak passionately about their successful recoveries from the most deadly cancers.
Burzynski The Movie
In 2004 I was researching alternative cancer therapies and heard about Dr. Stanley Burzynski in Houston, Texas. I was told that he had developed a non-toxic therapy that was more effective than chemo or radiation on even the most aggressive cancers. So yeah, he was on my short list of doctors to see if I my natural approach didn’t work. “Burzynski The Movie” documents the amazing cancer treatment discovered by Dr. Burzynski called Anti-neoplastons and how the FDA and the National Cancer Institute tried to shut down his clinic, prove his therapy didn’t work, and put him in jail while the U.S. Government tried to steal his patent. Unbelievably Awesome!
Crazy Sexy Cancer
Until 2003, Kris Carr’s life resembled that of many other New York actresses. The attractive blonde acted in commercials, appeared in theatrical revues, and guested on programs like Law & Order. After she was diagnosed with cancer of the vascular system, Carr decided to document the experience.
