As a two time cancer survivor I can share with you what has worked for me and what hasn’t. In 2001 I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I was in good hands with the Duke Medical system and was relieved when we felt we had licked it. Then in 2004 it came back in my spine. We fought it once again. I was in very good medical hands and would not change any of the medical approaches I took. They saved my life.
Then someone else saved my life again. In 2005 I walked into Medicap Pharmacy and saw Bobbie Barbrey. I had known Bobbie for years and he knew my story. There weren’t many people in the store that day and Bobbie took me aside and, from the heart, with love, told me that I needed to get off sugar. Cancer loves sugar. Unfortunately so did I! He told me not to give the cancer the food it needed to regroup, rebuild, and reappear. We talked at length and he shared with me many of the things he had learned in his studies of nutrition and optimal health.
I went home and cleaned out my cabinets and refrigerator. I changed my diet drastically and at Bobbie’s recommendation I started eating a Paleo style diet and drinking 2 liters of water a day. I lost 50 pounds without even trying and after 10 years have kept them off. I paid many more visits to Medicap and had many more discussions with Bobbie as he made suggestions for rebuilding the nutrient status in my body to give it the building blocks it needs for repair.
I started learning more about the field of nutrition myself and of my personal responsibility in my health, starting with the nutrients I give my body. I still see and adore my oncologist, but I now have a better understanding of what he can and should do, and of what I can and must do.
When I saw that Bobbie was looking for someone to help with the supplement side of his pharmacy I went in and told him to stop looking. Here I was! I’ve been working with him since 2009. Having lived through a serious health challenge and as someone who believes in and uses quality supplementation, I am a great resource for people who are beginning their journeys or who have questions.
If you have any questions about the supplements we carry or any that you don’t see and would like to, just ask. I’m always happy to help you find your way to optimal health. These are some of my favorite products which I take every day.
