My very dear good friend Anna Tipps, creator of the Purely Delicious magazine and the Beautifully Raw calendars died yesterday from stage 4 breast cancer and the effects of chemotherapy, radiation and drug therapy. My heart cried out for her and her 4 children she left behind and I really cried today when I got the news. I know that disease is not just about diet. Dr. Lorraine Day says all diseases are spiritual. I believe it is a combination: diet, environment, stress and our belief system.
This month is about love and I encourage you to start with YOU. Love yourself. Love who you are at this very moment. Invest in you. Heal from past traumas, breathe deeply, exercise, eat the best organic food ever, love being loved and give love and occasionally indulge in chocolate.
