Founder of Living Foods Institute Shares Her Healing From
Cancer by Kevin Gianni
Brenda: Thank you so much, Kevin, I'm real excited to be here.
Kevin: Brenda, you have an incredible story, and I want to get into it, and I want to
kind of give a landscape of where you were before you were diagnosed, and then
move into what you did.
Brenda: Well, where I was, was in a very high stress job, I owned my own business,
I was in film in television, I had a recording studio, and a production company. And, I
was very busy in helping people in promoting their careers, and in producing shows
for big events, and that was very stressful.
During that time, yeah, I didn't really eat well, and I ate all kinds of various types of
foods that weren't really great for me. And, if I had a headache, I took a Tylenol.
And, if my stomach was upset, I took
some kind of another type of a pill. And, then in1999, I was diagnosed with both
cervical and breast cancer. And so, that woke me up big time. The doctor told me
that I needed to have surgery, chemo, and radiation.
I knew that I did not want to. I really felt that I needed to look for a natural way to
heal myself. And so, I got on the Organic Raw and Living Foods Lifestyle, and it
changed my life. I've started using wheat grass juice, and energy soup, and other
really healing foods, and the cancer went away, but other problems I had had,
arthritis, acid reflux, indigestion, heartburn.
I had taken Pepcid AC, Tums, Rolaids, all of those types of products to try to help
myself, and that didn't really work, it just made me worse, not really better.
But, you know what? When I got on this program to heal cancer, all those other
symptoms went away. So, I never had any more migraine headaches. Arthritis went
away, I lost weight, my energy increased, my skin improved, I felt better, I wasn't as
depressed, I felt happier, and everything really changed dramatically. That's when I
realized that my mission in life was going to be to help other people, and teach it,
and tell other people about it because I felt like if it helped me, it could
help other people.
And, it's still thrilling. I mean today to just watch how much health can be improved
on this program. And, I don't care how sick people are Kevin. I have gotten people in
my center that everyone else has given up on completely, and they've told them
that they have a terminal, hopeless situation, and yet when these people are willing
to change what they're doing and their mental thinking, and some of their lifestyle
habits, we see that the body is miraculous, and it can bounce back from most
Kevin: How did you get turned on after you got out of the doctor's office, how did
you get turned onto the natural way of helping yourself?
Brenda: Well, I went to the health food store as soon as I left the doctor and I
asked them if they knew of any books I could read, or anyone who had ever healed
in a natural way. And, they
pointed me to a little book that a woman had written that said How I Conquered
Cancer Naturally, and her name was Eydie Mae . And I bought the only copy of that
book that they had on the shelf. And,
it was all about how she had used Dr. Ann Wigmore's method for raw and living
foods with wheat grass, and energy soup, and Rejuvelac, and veggie crowding, and
colon cleansing. And, how she had a very serious challenge with cancer and that, she
didn't think that there was any other place for her to turn. It kept getting worse and
worse, and coming back after treatment. And, when she heard about this program
and got on it - it healed her.
When I read that book I had cold chills all over my body. I thought you know
something, if it can work for her, it can work for me. Why not? What do I have to
lose? At least I need to try this. So, I really
had faith and belief in it. You know how it is sometimes that you read something or
you hear something and immediately it resonates with you. It's like you already
know this at some level. It's in there and it was just kind of waiting to be
remembered and that's how I felt about it. I started
reading enough, Wow,this just makes sense if I clean my body out, if I start giving it
optimum nutrition, if I don't cook my food, because of course I never knew that
when you cook you killed it. I learned that by cooking it I was killing the enzymes and
compromising the vitamins and the minerals.
And, that if I would start putting in really good organic nutrition that my body would
do what it was created to do. It would heal itself.
So, I use Eydie Mae's example, and then I started reading other books that Ann
Wigmore had written. And, I started reading testimonies from people who had done
her program before and everybody seems so positive. And, there were so many
stories that really seem miraculous. I mean of people recovering from all kinds of
diseases that I became more and more encouraged. And then the more I did it, the
more I was able to see for myself that it really did work.
Kevin: And so you believe after you read that book. You believed right away?
Brenda: I did. I've really had total faith and belief. In fact, it was a good thing
because well- meaning friends and family who loved me a lot really thought I was
crazy, and they felt that I should what the doctor said. And that I should do the
surgery and the chemo, and the radiation. Of course, I asked some of those
well-meaning people, "Well, why would I?" Because, it didn't work for, one of my
aunts or maybe one of your sisters. You know, because of my aunts would be
talking to me
about it or other loved ones. I say, "You know it didn't work for them. I don't see
why it should work for me. I'm going to try something different." Now, those same
people who then thought I was crazy, they think I'm a genius now. I did it, you know
when they thought I'd lost my mind but now they have seen that it really does work.
And, I'm glad I had that total faith and belief because it's tough when a lot of people
around you are thinking you're ought to do one thing and you're knowing that you
should be doing something else. You have to a hell lot of courage, you know to do
that. And, I just kept saying, "You know I know God is leading me in this way and I'm
going to do what I know I need do and I'm not going to worry about what other
people think because it's my life and I'm going to be responsible, and be self
sufficient." And, you know what if it doesn't work I take full responsibility but what is
it does? And, I believe it will, and I believed to this day that mental attitude and, faith
and belief in a program - what ever that program maybe. I think that's 99% of it.
Kevin: Um hum.
Brenda: If you do something and you don't believe it's going to work - if already
you're sabotaging yourself I'm saying, "I don't why I'm doing this. I'm sure it's not
going to help me." Then the truth is it's not going to help you. I believe that you do
get what you expect, and what you really visualize, and feel and think it's going to
happen for you. I think that you get more of those positive results and thinking that
Kevin: When did you know that this was working?
Brenda: Immediately really although my first my first few days on it, I tell you I was
really detoxing pretty strong.
Brenda: And, because I have been a coffee drinker. So, I had a lot of caffeine and
that started coming out and I had a headache that I thought every time my heart
beat, I thought my head was going to burst wide open.
And, that lasted for about a 24 hours but it gradually begin to get better, and after a
couple of days I would just have a little intermediate headache here and there. And,
by about the third or fourth day I never had a headache again, and then I was
nauseated because again toxins were coming out, and I thought that probably was
the worst and maybe the first and the second day. And by the third day I began to
feel like I was coming a little bit back to life. By about the fifth or the sixth day, I was
really beginning to get encouraged because I was feeling better. Weight was
beginning to melt tough because I weighed almost 200 pounds when I was
Brenda: And so the weight was melting away and then I began having more clarity. I
was having a lot of heavy bleeding from the cervical tumors and that began to
subside and actually in 30 days of being on the program that completely stopped.
Brenda: So that was an immediate, I'm like "Wow!" something is working.
Kevin: 30 Days?
Brenda: Yes, in 30 days. Now in my... as far as my breast tumor I could feel it going
down and decreasing. After my first 30 days it felt like to me just from touching that
it was about half the size. And of course I continue to decrease until it got to the
point within about the third or fourth month I was not able to detect it there at all.
You know, it was in about seven or eight days I never had acid reflux or heart burn
or indigestion again.
And now that actually was more empowering to me than in anything else because I
had it so bad that I could not lie down flat to sleep. I had to prop up with pillows and
that was miserable. I mean, I never slept well at night because I had that burning
When that went away I felt like, "Wow!" this health program was worth it If nothing
else got better because that one thing gave me better quality of life. The more that I
ate this good nutritious food and the less junk I ate, you know I stopped eating meat
and dairy and sugar and all that stuff. That impacted my sleep and just my well being
so I felt better and had more energy and when you have more energy everything is
