I started WILDFIT because of my passion for health and fitness. Living WILDFIT helped me navigate my journey with metastatic breast cancer, chemotherapy, and radiation with as much energy and vibrance as possible. I became a Certified WILDFIT Coach to help others navigate their journey, prevent disease, and live a healthy life. Now, I am living cancer free.
When my girlfriend found WILDFIT through Mindvalley and asked me to do it with her, I immediately said “yes.” I completed my WILDFIT 90 Challenge in February of 2017. Unfortunately, in October of the same year, I was diagnosed with cancer.
Cancer, how is that even possible! The test results had to be wrong. I lived a healthy life with exercise, good eating habits and was never obese. So when genetic testing turned up negative as a cause for my cancer, I was lost, walking around in total disbelief, and searching for an explanation.
The usual answer that we have all heard thousands of times is, “it’s cancer, there is no reliable explanation aside from genetics why some people get it, and some people don’t.” However, that answer was just not good enough for me.
There is no doubt in my mind that knowing how to live WILDFIT helped me get through my cancer journey with the nutrients my body needed to heal and living WILDFIT is helping me live cancer free. In a search for my “why,” I mindlessly wandered back into reviewing some of the WILDFIT Challenge principles and found my reasonable explanation.
One main WILDIFT principle is that it is far more critical to get enough good stuff than eliminate the bad stuff. Now, there is truth to the idea that aside from genetics, there is no reliable explanation for why some people get cancer and other people do not. My peace comes from knowing that eating the good stuff may not cure a disease, but it can prevent it.
So here we are, present day, with my story about why I became a Certified WILDFIT Coach.
