A cancer survivor was able to heal himself and make a recovery by revamping his lifestyle and diet. According to Tom Arguello, who was diagnosed with testicular cancer, going vegan was the first step towards healing his body from the deadly disease.
Studies show that the modern Western diet increases the risk of chronic diseases, including cancer because it is high in processed grains, sugars, and sodium.
Apart from sticking to a raw diet, Arguello looked for natural cures, such as green juice and medical marijuana. Not only did these diet changes strengthened his body and restored his health, it also awakened his spirituality.
Testicular cancer may be one of the least-talked about cancers, but it is actually the most common cancer among men. This alone makes it worth conversing about. In the United States, an estimated 161,360 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer each year. While the survival rate is higher than most cancers (the 5-year rate for most men with local or regional cancer of the prostate is 100%; 10-year rate is 98%), there are no guarantees when dealing with the affliction, as the sickness stems from toxicity, acidosis and a backed up lymphatic system. If ignored, the root cause of the disease may manifest into more.
One individual who now knows this to be true is Tom Arguello. Four years ago, the Texas resident lived like the “average” American. He cared less about what he ate, he placed himself in toxic environments, and he rarely exercised. As a result, he suffered from obesity, stage II hypertension, high blood pressure, anxiety, depression and fatty liver disease. Two weeks before his 37th birthday, he learned he had testicular cancer, as well. He said during our interview: “When I was diagnosed, it was like a nuclear bomb went off in my life. Cancer wasn’t real to me up to that point. It was something that happened to other people, not to me. I was numb, dumb and in denial!”
After coming to terms with his diagnosis, he decided to follow his Oncologist’s advice and look into traditional cancer and radiation treatments. After learning that his doctor gave no credence to nutritional therapy, however, he “walked out of his office.” In the interview below, Arguello mentions how he made a joke about eating McDonald’s, and the physician said “it would actually be a good idea.” The reality sunk in when he saw the entire hospital staff gorging on breakfast tacos and donuts. Said Arguello, “It was then that I realized that they couldn’t cure anyone if they were eating the cancer-causing food themselves.”
