Krisstina explains her journey from suffering severe metal toxicity and being close to death, to healing herself when she met the right person. After months of frustration of going from one doctor to the next, she finally came across a functional medical doctor who diagnosed her condition after 3 hours. This led to her developing a fascination and obsession with what true health is and means. A month prior to this interview, her father was diagnosed with stage-4 lung cancer, and was given a 3 months to live diagnosis.

Refusing to accept the oncologist’s advice, she decided to get fully educated on what cancer really is. This is not the conventional understanding, nor what the media and oncologists and doctors present it as.

This will really help you understand what creates cancer in the body, so you can become fascinated in it, and learn how to heal your own body and/or share with those you love.

30.00 – 2 belief systems about cancer. 1) Chemo / radio / surgery – based on cancer as a genetic disease. It's as if we’re screwed. It’s in your DNA or not. It’s the luck of the draw – and we have no control over it. As a result, food doesn’t matter, lifestyle doesn’t matter, and people just get cancer if they’re unlucky enough to get it.
