I'm reading the book, The China Study by T. Colin Campbell, and I recommend you do too. ALL of you - healthy, sick, diagnosed and/or skeptic... it is a book for EVERYONE who eats, breathes and sleeps.
The author is a HIGHLY awarded and world-wide known American biochemist who has studied the effects of nutrition on long-term health for over 40 years. A former dairy farmer who now recommends we don't drink milk due to the protein's contribution to the growth of cancer cells. He also shows Scientific studies world-wide proving that consuming animal protein is directly related to heart disease, diabetes and cancer.
If there is one step you take to 1) avoid the return of cancer or 2) help to prevent growth of cancer, it would be to stop eating/drinking dairy. The protein in milk is proven 100% in all trials to initiate as well as reactivate cancer cells. In trials, rats were given the most toxic of carcinogens then fed either 5% protein or 20% protein. Regardless how much carcinogen administered, cancer grew when the rats were fed 20% animal protein from cow's milk and the progression stopped once they reduced the protein intake to 5%. So, even under high exposure to the aflatoxin, the most toxic of carcinogens, rats fed 5% protein had no activation of cancer cells and once fed the amount of protein commonly ingested in the Standard American Diet, cancer cells were reactivated. Read about this in The China Study.

This blog is on the many avenues that interest Coach Stephanie. Subjects are a vast array of hobbies, career, desires, coaching and lifestyle.
"I am here for support, guidance, education and as an example of what works for ME. What works for me may work for you or at least provide you with a starting point from which to explore. I am discovering what works for me at every moment. I don’t have it all figured out, but I do feel I have a teaching and healing nature with which I am here to share. In this blog, I offer you a view into my practice of being that which makes my experience - MINE."
Certified Holistic Health and Nutrition Practitioner, Stephanie Austin, was guided into holistic living in 2002 when she was diagnosed with Dermatomyositis, an uncommon autoimmune disease affecting the skin and muscle.
Opting for education rather than medication, Austin enrolled in a Holistic Health Practitioner program in 2004 after realizing she'd been gifted with disease so that she may learn to heal herself and later teach others to do the same.
Since her education, Austin has released over 60 pounds and conquered years of junk food addiction through holistic healing and nutrition techniques that she now passes onto others through her business, Wellness by Mother Nature.
Austin has been the Director of Education and Board Member for the nonprofit organization, The Wellness Kitchen. She is the recipient of the 2015 Outstanding Graduate Award from www.ACHS.edu.
Austin is an author, coach and speaker who empowers people on the healing value of nutrition and the innate self-healing abilities of a body in balance.
She has helped hundreds of people achieve balance through methods such as meditation, herbs, movement, supplements, aromatherapy, homeopathy, nutrition, mind-body connection, energy healing and by closely listening to the needs of her clients.
It is awareness that brings change, not your effort. Why does it happen through awareness? - because the awareness changes you. And when you are different, the world is different. It is not a question of creating a different world, it is only a question of creating a different you. You are your world; so if you change, the world changes.
