17 years into a steady career, Valerie Warwich quit her job. It’s a pretty significant step after spending that much time in a single career, but she did so in hoping that she could help save lives. Warwich was a nurse an oncology nurse, specializing in cancer, and she left her job to better understand nutrition and surviving cancer, as well as helping others better understand it.
As a young woman, she witnessed her father suffer from throat cancer and her mother from multiple sclerosis. At the age of 20, she was the primary caretaker for both of her parents. Back then, treating cancer was invasive and terrifying. They cut out most of her father’s throat to get at the cancer, and in the end didn’t survive anyway.
She was inspired by her father to help others, so she sought out a position in an oncology ward. Still, she found herself questioning how we treated cancer. Then, in 2008, her closest friend was diagnosed with cancer. She began researching all she could find about alternative therapies, diet, and treatments for cancer. This began a huge shift in her thinking about cancer.
She found that many cancer patients were depleted of necessary nutrients. They were literally starving to death! Their bodies couldn’t work and heal anymore. Combine that with the immune-destroying treatments that we conventionally used and she realized that cancer was likely curable with the right methods used at the proper time.
