77 - Healthy Cancer Comeback with Fitz Koehler
In this week's episode, I share the amazing, inspirational story of fitness expert, Fitz Koehler.Fitz shares her story of how she overcame breast cancer, including the story of how she successfully got through 15-months of torturous treatment with the aid of exercise, nutrition, a positive mindset, a great outlook on life and seeking joy. We also had an interesting debate over red meat and whether the science supports the claim that red meat consumption causes cancer. Suffice to say, we respectfully agreed to disagree like adults on that subject. After the interview, Fitz kindly sent me a link to the science that suggests that red meat increases the risk of colon cancer by 28%. I have included the link in the show notes. I have also included a link to a critique by Dr Paul Saladino of the research that makes those claims.I would never suggest you believe anything I or my guests say, but would always suggest you do your own research and come to your own conclusions.  The links provided are good place to begin research into that subject, should you wish to do so.I really hope you enjoy this episode and take inspiration from it.We discussed:2:45Fitz's story and biggest health challenge35:50The most important things cancer patients need to know51:50How exercise and nutrition affect your cancer recovery54:00The Cancer Comeback Series1:00:14Fitz's Top 3 TipsYou can find Fitz @:Fitzness.com  https://www.instagram.com/fitzness/   https://www.linkedin.com/in/fitz-koehler/   https://www.facebook.com/Fitzness-218599521492381/  https://www.youtube.com/fitznesshttps://www.instagram.com/healthycancercomeback/10% off Fitz’s books at Fitzness.com with discount code PODCAST.Studies on the link between Red Meat & Cancer:A meta-analysis of 29 studies of meat consumption and colon cancer.Dr Paul Saladino critique of the studies on red meat and cancerOther Radical Health Rebel Cancer Episodes:The Root Cause of Cancer with Paul LeendertseCancer Healed Holistically with The Power of RAGE with Jill Ayn SchneiderCancer Is a Spiritual Journey with Paul LeendertseSend us a Text Message.Support the Show.Don't forget to leave a Rating for the podcast!You can find Leigh @:Leigh website - https://www.bodychek.co.uk/Leigh's books - https://www.bodychek.co.uk/books/ Eliminate Adult Acne Programme - https://eliminateadultacne.com/Radical Health Rebel YouTube Channel - https://www.youtube.com/@radicalhealthrebelpodcast
