On today's episode of The Food Heals Podcast, Allison Melody sits down with reality TV producer, Jessica Funk Sirikulbut & cancer survivor, Jill Tomback to do a movie review of the latest cut of the film, Cowspiracy.

Executive produced by Leonardo DiCaprio, Cowspiracy follows filmmaker Kip Andersen as he uncovers the most destructive industry facing the planet today – and investigates why the world’s leading environmental organizations are too afraid to talk about it.

To talk about the film we have breast cancer survivor Jill Tomback, who you know from previous episodes of the Food Heals podcast where she tells her story of going through breast cancer- everything she did, what worked, what didn’t work. She is a second grade teacher with a Masters degree in Educational Leader ship who loves pilates, ASU football and her dog, Rio.

And she is 5 and a half years cancer free, and promotes clean eating, juicing daily and an active lifestyle for cancer prevention.

We also have reality television producer and new mom, Jessica Funk Sirikulbut. Jessica has extensive knowledge behind the scenes of your favorite commercials and reality TV shows including Dancing with the Stars, Supernanny, Top Gear & more and has since developed several shows for international sales. She is an optimistic idea maker who loves to help other people marry their passions with their "saved-by-grace" story. Originally from Colorado, Jessica lives for skiing and campfire storytelling.

And Jessica wants to create a healthy, holistic, organic environment & world for her 1 year old daughter, Emme to grow up in.

"If I had to do it all over again, I would not choose chemotherapy.  I would choose the natural treatment and use Gerson therapy." ~ Jill Tomback

Today's episode tells the story of our friend, Jill Tomback who was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 25.  Jill  shares her story of getting the diagnosis, how she chose her treatment, the difficult decision to get a double mastectomy and ultimately how she healed her body.  One of the incredible things that you will hear Jill talk about is the toll that chemotherapy took on her body.  She was left weak and depleted, with virtually no immune system.  Jill underwent different types of chemo and radiation, and although she was able to aid in her recovery with acupuncture, she will still tell you that the Western medicine choices are terrible.  Jill has educated herself since her diagnosis and is firm in her decision that she will never choose chemo or radiation again.  Instead, Jill says she would opt for Gerson Therapy.

Gerson therapy is illegal in the United States.  Jill even discussed this option with her Oncologist at one point, and all he could do is repeat this sentence.  "I am only allowed to recommend the types of treatment that we have discussed. "  In probing further, Jill got very clear on the fact that despite the fact that Gerson Therapy has a higher success rate for cancer than chemo does, her Oncologist was completely prohibited from recommending that as an option.  If you have never heard of Gerson Therapy, essentially it is a full blown assault on cancer, in the same way that chemo is, but instead of using highly toxic drugs, it utilizes massive doses of fresh juice to flood the body with all the nutrients it needs to fight.  Then to remove the toxins from your body, coffee enemas would be used.  There are lots of resources available to educate yourself on Gerson Therapy.
