A woman called Candice Marie Fox didn’t give up after being diagnosed with cancer and saved her own life. Candice was diagnosed with thyroid cancer in 2011, and the doctors told her that the disease has spread to other organs, leaving her with less than 5 years to live. Although shocked and devastated, Candice decided to fight the disease and rejected the usual chemotherapy treatment.

She decided against chemo as her cousin and also one of her friends died from it after being diagnosed with cancer. She started researching the disease and potential treatments, and discovered that bromelain, a compound found in pineapple, kiwi and papaya can destroy the protein layer of cancer cells. She immediately started consuming 3 pineapples every day along with kiwi, lemon, grapefruit, bananas, apples and papaya – she ate only these fruits for the first four days of her therapy.

Candice also stopped smoking and stopped using cosmetic products, and she started doing some stress-relieving techniques. “Stress, chemicals and animal products feed cancer, so I got rid of them,” she says.

During the therapy, she found that big meals spend all of the body’s energy on digestion, so she decided to save this energy to fight her thyroid cancer. After 6 months, Candice was cancer-free and now lives a happy and healthy life without the disease.
