One of the most common cancers in women, breast cancer now afflicts many more women in World. The rise in breast cancer is a finger in the direction, of many food products that are now contaminated and entering women’s diets.
What is the cause for breast cancer?
Dairy happens to be one of them; full of growth hormones as is the consumption of sugar, poor-nutrition and emotional triggers; tipping the balance towards acidic blood conditions in women. The overspill of all of these elements spills over into fatty breast tissue of women and cysts and unwanted lumps start forming.
How does Shonali help?
On a breast cancer diet, Shonali works with isolating foods that trigger breast cancer; literally starving the cancer cells of foods they like and feed them foods they loathe. Nourishing the body, if one is going through chemotherapy or radiation and conventional medicine treatments with her broths, soups, and other remedies that help one keep it under remission and fight the onslaught of chemotherapy and radiation.
Shonali approach relies on the tenets of Macrobiotic philosophy: using the oriental system of ‘facial diagnosis,’ and touch meridian diagnosis (if needed) to analyze the strength and health of your organs. Her framework (like Ayurveda) relies on using the foundation of analyzing your constitution (that which you were born with: blueprint from your parents) and condition (that which you have created growing up). Macrobiotic philosophy uses the ‘yin’ and ‘yang’ elements of ‘energy’ or ‘prana’ to help her diagnose everything you are or do. This is her training and USP and how she actually zeroes in on your diagnosis and further prognosis.
She uses the food tools and the principles of the Macrobiotic approach to aim at: strengthening your gut, detoxify you of all the accumulated toxins (‘ama’ in Ayurveda plus any accumulation of bad gut bacteria causing ‘dysbiosis’ i.e., when bad bacteria outweigh the beneficial ones) and balance the body’s pH. Her approach is to make you identify the toxins you are consuming from foods, the environment and your lifestyle; and get rid of them. Plus bring in food-elements to clean up your gut to help you detoxify. She then layers this with the use of holistic natural everyday foods; using her knowledge of balancing the ‘foods’ and ‘cooking styles’ used to give you the required strength to overcome your ailment and encourage balance.
