Cancer prevention is so much easier than cancer recovery. Protect yourself and your loved ones from becoming one of the increasing numbers of people dealing with this challenging diagnosis. It has been proven that lifestyle, diet, emotional well-being and toxic exposure are far more impactful than genetics in determining who gets cancer. In this class, you will learn how to be proactive in shifting the odds in your favor. These measures will also increase health and vitality and often short-circuit the advances of other undesirable health conditions such as diabetes, obesity, and heart disease. Learn to support and harness the amazing regenerative abilities of your body. Gold Star Fee: $19.50.
