Prostate Cancer is hitting men now at an alarming pace; and has come close to home. It happens when the cells of the prostate gland grow abnormally.
What causes prostate cancer?
Cancer cells are fuelled by acidic blood condition, which allow cancer cells to thrive. In the prostate cancer, if the food choices have been poor, and health of the male has been under siege: physically and stress-wise; a cancer could happen. In prostate cancer usually meat, eggs and dairy happens to be among foods that cause cancers. The overspill of poor nutrition spills over into unassimilated and cysts and unwanted lumps and tumors in an acidic blood condition; leading to cellular death (senescence).
Shonali’s father had prostate cancer, and that’s what bought her to this approach.
What is Shonali's USP (Uniqueness)?
On a prostate cancer diet, she works with isolating foods that trigger 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.
How does Shonali help?
Shonali’s 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.
