||Clean2: Optimise your diet, tune your health||Food and diet is not just a popular or fun thing to talk about. It's also something Toral Shah embraces as a vehicle for health, illness prevention, recovery and reduction of illness recurrence. Toral not only knows the human side of illness (breast cancer), but also is a nutritional scientist and food consultant, focusing on the role of diet and nutrition in the prevention of disease, such as cancer, diabetes and others. She saw her mum and a number of other family women survive breast cancer, she’s a breast cancer survival herself. Toral has been on both sides: the witness, the observer, the supporter to others facing the diagnosis and being on the healing journey, and also being the one on the receiving end, with all the roles reversed. In this episode of The Eagle Podcast we discuss: What led Toral to studying cancer and nutrition for cancer patients What it is like to work with cancer patents What it was like to share breast cancer experience with her mum Emotions people have when they see Toral for the first time Usual food patterns seen in cancer patients Resistance and importance for taking responsibility for your own health Food and cancer prevention Alcohol and cancer Stress and cancer Importance of community when you are ill The link of gut and inflammation to cancer and what you can do to avoid having inflammation British Society of Lifestyle Medicine ODD BOX Blue Zones - places with the world's longest-lived, and thus healthiest, people Dirty Dozen Vegetables and Fruits Rainbow Slaw recipe on Royal Marsden The book “The Complete Guide to Breast Cancer: How to Feel Empowered and Take Control”by Professor Trisha Greenhalgh, an academic GP, and Dr Liz O’Riordan, a Consultant Breast Cancer Surgeon Toral Shah's Website Toral Shah - The Urban Kitchen - on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook Facebook Group: The Eagle Collective||3/19/2019||Free||View in iTunes|
||Clean1: Finding your joy, why cancer is not a fight||Jem Ayes is a British entrepreneur, Cancer Coach and Body worker. Jem is my very special first Eagle! Her story of cancer begins on an idyllic white sands holiday in Thailand in 2015 which turned rapidly into life saving surgery at the age of 32. She was diagnosed with a tumour in her brain and had immediate brain surgery. Several weeks after the trauma of her surgery and back home in the UK, Jem had the added shock of a diagnosis of an advanced melanoma. What followed was a very personal emotional journey and a number of difficult decisions. Things we talk about in this episode: ~ The events that led to Jem's diagnosis and everything that followed ~ The road to full recovery from stage 4 skin cancer ~ How Jem continues to remain healthy by decisions and actions she continues to take to affect her healing in a positive way (there are many gems there, and some of them will put a smile on your face!) ~ The words she chooses to describe herself that empower her on this journey - and aren’t the fighting words that people usually use towards cancer ~ How cancer affected Jem's relationships with her business, as well as family and friends ~ How her life pivoted from one business to another and how she treats her work now ~ Controversy of being your own cancer healer. Jem unpacks the bold statement on her website for us ‘Through choice, self-love and power of belief one can heal cancer’. Be assured, this doesn't go unnoticed by people and Jem shares the range of reactions she receives ~ Three biggest lessons cancer taught Jem Links mentioned in this episode: Jem’s reference to the video by Dr Emoto, Japanese doctor about the power of words and how water responds to them Jem Ayes Coaching https://jemayres.co.uk||3/5/2019||Free||View in iTunes|
