Hi Polly,

Read about your inspirational story in the paper & I have some books I would like to share with you:

‘The pH miracle’ by Robert & Shelley Young
‘Food for thought’; ‘B17 Metabolic Therapy’ & ‘Cancer: Why we’re still dying to know the truth’ all by the bright shining star & truth seeker Phillip Day

There is other very positive & amusing literature that I could introduce you to over time :-)

Happy to send these initial books to you?

Dear Polly,

I was very interested in the article about your decision to fight cancer in your own way and to reject the conventional chemotherapy/radiotherapy treatments. This is a very wise decision and will prove crucial in your recovery.

It is important to recognise that cancer, like every other illness and disease, has been and continues to be completely misunderstood by the mainstream medical establishment who are completely wrong in their ideas of what causes illness and are therefore wrong about the treatments they apply.

With the medical establishment predicting that 1 in 3 people will succumb to cancer it is all the more crucial to heed the words of Dr Vernon Coleman MD who is one of a growing number of medical practitioners who have realised the errors of the mainstream dogma.

“We know what causes most forms of cancer.
Cancer is created by chemical pollutants, by unhealthy food and by tobacco. Poisoned water supplies, dangerous prescription drugs and the overuse of X-rays have also contributed to the incidence of cancer. With immune systems constantly battered by polluted air, adulterated, chemically impregnated food and a constant onslaught from the drugs we buy for ourselves or allow our doctors to prescribe for us, it is not surprising that increasing numbers of people succumb to one of the many different types of cancer………..
Most ironic of all is the fact that the evidence now suggests that many of the treatments used for patients with cancer may themselves cause cancer.
The ultimate explanation for the failure of the cancer industry to conquer cancer is probably the simplest and yet the most cynical. The cancer industry has, like the pharmaceutical industry, become large and powerful and dependent for its existence upon the terrors it is supposed to be trying to banish from our world. The pharmaceutical industry has no interest in curing illness. Cures for heart disease or arthritis would lose it billions of pounds. The industry prefers to sell long-term treatments which never cure but which do provide it with enormous profits. The cancer industry is now in the same position. If cancer were conquered by teaching people how to adapt their lifestyles so that they avoided the provocative factors which are known to cause it then a massive, international, multi-billion dollar industry would be out of business.”

The shocking truth about what really causes cancer and all other illnesses prompted me to co-auther a book called Why Germs Don’t Make You Ill and Drugs Can’t Cure You. The book explains how the general public has been seriously misinformed by the medical establishment on health issues and how the medical establishment’s unscientific practices are adversely affecting everyone’s health.

Ok so here is one for you- how do you get a stubborn 32 year-old man to stop eating fried food?


polly September 9, 2010 at 1:37 pm

Hi Nat,

Ultimately the person in question has to WANT to change, otherwise it’s a seemingly hard and frustrating slog for people on the sidelines pushing the change. By being healthy yourself around him and telling him about the nutritional benefits as well as the physical then slowly but surely, he will hopefully start to recognise what he is putting into himself, is actually draining him rather than fuelling him. It’s important not to nag or berate him as this will make him feel pressured and push him away from being healthy as opposed to towards it.
He needs to understand and see what the benefit of being healthier would be. (ie.more energy, less sleep, glowing complexion, get rid of skin complaints etc etc)

Good luck! xx


jane upchurch September 12, 2010 at 7:36 pm

Hallo again Polly
You recently and very kindly sent me details of juicers for which I am very grateful.
However ,since then I have been diagnosed with a brain tumour. I just wondered if you had read a VERY inspirational book by Andreas Moritz called ‘ Cancer is not a disease it’s a survival mechanism’ . It is very ‘alternative thinking’ but among many gems of information he offers a simple and ‘effective’ self help therapy.
You get organic grade maple syrup and mix it 5 parts to 1 with 100% pure bicarbonate of soda (it must not contain aluminium). Cook for 5 mins on a medium heat and it with froth up. Allow to cool and keep in a clean cool container. Take a teaspoonful twice a day for 8 days.
The bicarbonate of soda is 100% alkaline and cancer cells can not survive in an alkaline environment. The maple syrup acts as a carrier to every cell in the body.
I started taking it on Friday and so am 3 days into the therapy. I will keep you posted.
Good luck to you girl, you ARE an inspiration
Love,Joy, Health and Peace


Daphne May 6, 2011 at 6:00 pm

I found a good way of alkalining the body is taking one teaspoon of Bi-Carbonate of Soda in a glass of water and drinking it once or twice a week. Depends how acidic your body is. The BP variety is what you need. Best to buy at a pharmacy.

Lots of love, light and laughter


Kels November 10, 2010 at 9:02 pm

Hey Polster – not sure if im supposed to leave messages like this on here but have just been reading your site and think its great. Excellent work my friend. Brings back memories of all those weird juices you used to make for us! Hope alls well and you enjoyed the States. Kels x


Melanie November 24, 2010 at 9:19 pm

Hi Polly. I’m really looking forward to trying some of your raw recipes. Do you make them up yourself or find inspiration in books? I’d love to know any raw recipe books that you feel are worth the investment. X


polly November 24, 2010 at 9:27 pm

Hi Melanie,

I’m glad you’re enjoying the site. I make up all my own recipes but I do take inspiration from other raw food books. If you’re just getting started with raw food, I would reccommend Ani Phyo’s Raw Food Essentials or Alissa Cohen’s Living On Live Food. And hopefully one day Ill have my own recipe book that you can buy! ;o)

Good luck with it all

Shout me if you have any questions.


Karen December 16, 2010 at 10:38 am

Really good website Polly! I’ve recently been diagnosed with breast cancer and although I ate a healthy balanced diet. I have decided to go much more raw. I’m a single mother with 2 youngish children (8 and 12) and I am trying to plan our meals and put together a weekly meal menu. Can you give some suggestions for evening meals which would be easy to incorporate all our dinners together and not have to make 2 seperate dinners for me and them please? Also I’ve been detoxing and eating a vegetarian diet, without caffine etc for a couple of days and have bad headaches in the evening, what would you suggest to help please? I’m drinking more bottled water. xx


Daphne May 6, 2011 at 6:02 pm

Remember water from plastic bottles can cause cancer. Need to buy water in glass bottles if buying in from the shop. I found that Morrisons sell Strathmore water in glass bottles.

Lots of love, light and laughter


Beth December 26, 2010 at 6:52 pm

Hi Polly,

I have been reading your blog for some months now and just wanted to let you know that I think you are really amazing! Although I would love to ‘go raw’, I am full of self-doubt as my eating/drinking habits are currently so different but I am looking forward to the raw24challenge. Wish me luck!

Merry Christmas lovely!

Beth xx


colette woods January 13, 2011 at 7:22 am

Hi Polly
Do you know of any food/superfood that has exceptionally high content of potassium? I have something called Gittlemans syndrome which excess loss of potassium from the kidneys. I also have Graves disease and was told not to have iodine in my diet which is quite hard since a lot of good stuff contains it.
many thanks for you lovely website.


polly January 14, 2011 at 4:30 pm

Hi Colette

Im sorry to hear about that. There are loads of fruits and veg that contain potassium such as blueberries,blackcurrant, grapefruit, grapes, peaches, beetroot, broccoli, carrots, pineapple, peppers etc. But the ones that contain the highest levels are apples, apricots, bananas, kiwi, avocado, oranges and honeydew and canteloupe melon. The superfood cacao also has loads of potassium (and magnesium) so you could look into eating more of that also. You could also look at trying ionic potassium.

I will be posting a blog about a guy called Elwin that I have been working with recently who I feel could also help you so keep an eye out.
I hope this helps. Wishing you health and happiness.

Polly xx


Emily January 14, 2011 at 12:23 pm

Polly I was wondering what your opinion on agave is? It seems to be an ingredient in a lot of raw food recipes but yesterday I saw a video with someone saying it’s really just as bad as regular sugar. Any thoughts?


polly January 14, 2011 at 3:57 pm

Hi Emily

Yes there has been a lot of debate about agave recently. I think it largely depends on where you buy it from. For example, the brands you can get in supermarkets I wouldn’t trust as much as I would from somewhere like I wouldn’t say it is as bad as refined sugar but I would say not to overdo it. I try to keep from using it too much, if at all, opting instead for dates where possible. But occasionally depending on recipe ingredients it can come in handy for binding so I would say, try to use stevia for sweetening things as this has no effect on the blood sugar at all and use as little agave as possible. Trust what feels right for you…xx


Deb February 2, 2011 at 12:17 pm

Hi Polly, I love your blogs so a big thank you for all your knowledge and wisdom. Where do you buy your chia seeds and other superfoods? Also are there any good raw food restuarants in London that you recommend ?


polly February 2, 2011 at 1:01 pm

Ah thank you. I buy my chia from or Yes if you do go to London, definitely try out Saf, – I have been there many times and love it. Or there is or – I haven’t tried these yet but I plan to! x


denise holdstock February 22, 2011 at 10:38 am

hi Polly

just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed this weeks Passion, as Shazzie will tell you I have been battling with my weight for years.
I will take a leaf out your book
Thank you again
Denise (Shazzie’s and Jennie’s mum)


Katie Bowen March 8, 2011 at 3:14 pm

Hello Polly,

I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed reading your article in the Cambridge newspaper/Style Magazine recently. Am sure it made a lot of people stop and think regarding where they are in life generally! I enjoy helping people feel better and move on in their life, as a i ‘style people’ for a living. I am sure you have touched many hearts with your ‘postive/go-getting’ attitude… I personally felt very humbled from reading about your experience.
Many thanks, Katie x


Marie March 28, 2011 at 5:56 am

Hi Polly,
I love your blog! Everytime I read it i am more and more intrigued and inspired by the raw vegan lifestyle. I have great intrest in ‘going raw’, but, there is one question I’d love to know your answer to. After the recent earthquake in Japan, I started to put together an emergency kit, I wanted to know what kinds of raw vegan foods you could keep in an emergency kit? Thank you so much for sharing your story and your wisdom, you are an inspiration to me.
Thank you again- Marie


polly March 28, 2011 at 9:54 pm

Hi Marie – thank you – it’s so nice to hear that you like my blog.
Re having an emergency kit on hand I would suggest you have a mixture of the following;
granola bars (there are plenty of raw vegan versions online), nuts, seeds, bee pollen, hemp seeds, goji berries, mulberries (these all store really well), dried fruit and good quality water. You may also want to invest in Thyrosafe to protect your thyroid. I hope that helps. Wishing you health and happiness

Olivia April 15, 2011 at 8:12 pm

Hi Polly
I just wanted to let you know that I absolutely love your blog – it gives me so much inspiration. I was hoping you might be able to recommend a book for improving digestion?
I can’t wait to come to one of your classes in the future (the food you make looks incredible)
Olivia x


polly April 15, 2011 at 8:18 pm

Hi Olivia

Ahh thank you so much – that is absolutely lovely to hear and makes me happy ;o)

Re books; It depends on what kind of digestive problem it is that you’re having but I would recommend you read the Body Ecology Diet for starters which is on one of the book lists on the side bar of my site. I hope that helps. Wishing you health and happiness. xxx


Daphne May 6, 2011 at 5:55 pm

Hi Polly,

I was given your name by Anne Thorne. I was diagnosed with breast cancer in March 2010. I wrote two articles in the More To Life magazine about my experience and the things that I did. I got my first all clear in October.

I have since discovered that Geopathic Stress has a lot to do with illness and especially cancer. I found that my bed was on a Geopathic Stress line and am now using Raditech which counteracts it. Rolf Gordon read my second article and wrote to me. He wrote the book Cancer – the full menu. He has dealt with over 5,000 cancer cases and all were sleeping on Geopathic Stress lines.

If you want to read the articles I wrote you will find them on my blog on my website The first one was My Dance With Breast Cancer and the second one was Me and the Big C.

Wish you well with all you are doing.

Lots of love, light and laughter


Chris Wark May 14, 2011 at 3:00 am

Hi Polly
Just stumbled across your site and love it. We have a lot in common!
I was diagnosed with cancer at 26, refused chemo, did every alternative therapy I could find and here I am 7 years later still cancer free.

I also blog about health at



polly May 14, 2011 at 2:14 pm

Hey Chris

Just visited your blog – love it. And loved your interview with Cortney – i love discovering people like yourself who have beaten the odds and are working to educate people in their options. What we are doing is how it should be done! Fab stuff. Hope to join you soon in “camp remission”.

Polly x


Lynne May 14, 2011 at 9:19 am

Hi Polly,
Just discovered you via the Cambridge News. Well done for sharing your incredible journey with us all, you are an inspiration. Cancer usually paralyses people with fear; you have done what we all could do, embraced it and asked it what you can learn from it. Have you tried EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) – fantastic on so many levels, for everything!!
Love and joy to you Polly
Lynne x


polly May 14, 2011 at 2:25 pm

Hi Lynne

So glad you found me! Is that a recent article where you found me? Yes I had a session with the wonderful Gill Edwards last year and am seeing Sandy Newbigging next week so excited to get to work with him. Thanks so much for reading my blog.

Wishing you health and happiness

Polly xx


Z May 22, 2011 at 12:26 pm

Hi Polly, really inspired by your blog. The layout is really stylish and beautiful. Good luck with the mydaily award!

I’ve been toying with trying a raw food diet for a while. Now maybe the time! Your food pics look delicious!!
Z : )


oli May 27, 2011 at 12:42 pm

Hi Polly,
greetings from Slovakia. Thank you for doing your wonderful job!
I would like to ask you, if you have some “raw food ideas” for a breastfeeding mum and her 7 months old baby girl. I am a big fan of juices (that is how I met you via JuiceMaster website) and I got really passionate about an idea inspired by your website… introducing the ” raw food” to my little one in order to nurture her with “goodies” and create healthy eating habits. I appreciate your thoughts on this subjects. I instinctively feel “raw” is great also for my body and quality of mother’s milk. I juice every day to boost my energy and vitality early in the morning, but I would like to do more “raw” and I can not wait for your book to be available to purchase. Love your pics and design of website….. it speaks to my heart.
Best wishes, Oli + :)


polly May 28, 2011 at 5:51 pm

Hi Oli

Thanks for visiting – I am so glad to hear you are enjoying my site. ;o)
Its fantastic that you are so inspired and keen to increase raw food intake for yourself and your daughter-it really is the best thing you can do to promote health within. As children need more support as they are growing there are a number of ways to make sure they are getting the right amounts of particular vitamins and minerals and introducing them to green juice early on is good but they will also need more supplementation than adults. I would recommend reading “Evies Kitchen” by Shazzie who has raised her child completely raw. She talks in depth about the areas to watch out for when raising a child and breastfeeding while raw. You can buy it here –
My ebook is now available here if you wish to purchase –

I hope that helps!

Best wishes

Polly xx


fran malan May 30, 2011 at 3:37 pm

Hi Polly, I thought i would drop you a line to show you a group I started on Facebook dedicated to fighting cancer by natural means, We have lots of interesting documents and videos in the discussion section and I think any input from yourself would be greatly appreciated by some of our members. Thank you and the very best of luck to you in your battle with this horrible disease. Heres the link to our group.


joan ebsworth May 30, 2011 at 3:45 pm

Hi Polly–I am a 72 year old retired teacher ( Zoology) and I have always been interested in nutrition.Can I ask you to look at or look up Coriolus versicolor.I and all of my family have been taking Inforce for 6 months with amazing results.All I ask is that you research it out of interest.I wish you the very best in your quest for health–it has been my quest all of my adult life!


Marlene June 4, 2011 at 11:17 am

Hi Polly

I am really pleased I found your site. I’m currently caring for a relaitve with late stage Cancer and it really is a roller coaster ride for all of us. Thank you so much for the free recipes. I made the Almond milk today ( added a drop of almond essence as I had run out of vanilla) it just feels sooooooooooo good, I had forgotten about my raw mission and you have put me
back on track! When is your co-authored book out? I’ve tried on Amazon but its not there yet.

All very best wishes with your journeys wherever they take you :O)

Love Marlene xxx


polly June 4, 2011 at 11:23 am

Hi Marlene

Im so glad you found me too! ;o) How did you find me by the way just out of interest?
Im sorry to hear about your relative but the great news is that there is plenty that can be done to stack the health odds in their favour by adjusting their diet and lifestyle. The book is out in August. Make sure you sign up to receive details of when it’s available to buy

Thank you for visiting and for your well wishes.

Lots of love

Denisa June 15, 2011 at 10:11 am

Hello Polly,

I do admire you for doing what you doing and your dishes look just amazing! ….I have just stopped my chemotherapy myself and doing my healing naturally…..I was just wondering…what is your statement on cancer feeding off of sugar in fruit??

Thank you

Denisa 😉


polly June 15, 2011 at 10:17 am

Hi Denisa

Thank you. Im glad to hear you are doing as much as you can to help heal yourself. My take on fruit is to be conscious of what type of fruit (ie low/high GI it is and how much sugar it has), what it is combined with and how often. So i do eat fruit but i stick to low GI as much as possible – berries, apples, pears. And will normally consume WITH greens in a smoothie. I wouldn’t eat straight pineapple or mango or drink straight fruit juice as that makes the sugar more readily available but I do eat an apple and berries on their own on chia pudding.

Wishing you the best of health on your journey. xxx


Nicole June 23, 2011 at 1:30 am

I am thanking my lucky stars right now that I am FB friends with Jessica. It is so amazing how things can work out in your favor just when you least expect it. Your story is almost my story! I was also diagnosed with cervical cancer. I was 30yrs old when they found the tumor in my cervix. After radiation and chemotherapy was completed a petscan revealed a positive lymph node. I then went back into therapy. During this time I started to question things. I couldn’t understand why they would do the same treatment for such a small lymph node as they did for the larger tumor in my cervix. I then started doing my research. I wanted to know that there was a better way. Less than a year after I was told that I was in remission, the cancer returned in my lymph node above my left clavicle (neck area). About a few months later it was discovered that I now have 2 small tumors in my left lung. I was then told by my oncologist that my status was incurable. Although I was told nothing could be done, I am choosing to believe otherwise. There are to many people out there that have cured themselves naturally so I choose to be one of them. I will admit my biggest struggle is diet. I am a food addict and really struggle with getting on the “organic raw vegan” diet. I feel in my heart that this is very important for me to do. Any advice in this area would be greatly appreciated. I wouldn’t wish this dilemma on anyone, but I must admit it feels nice to have someone out there that knows what it is like to be in my shoes.
Thank you!
xx Nicole oo


Samantha July 7, 2011 at 3:22 pm

Hi Polly :)
I just wanted to say that I recently heard your interview with Shazzie on her Vipster Site. I hadn’t listened before as (wrongly) I felt that it would have no particular message for me at this time. However having caught the very last moments of your talk at the ‘Truth Matters’ conference I felt inspired to listen. I am so glad I did!

I don’t have cancer but I am struggling with falling pregnant. Hormone levels look good and there is nothing medical they can find wrong except at the more mature age of 46 time my age is considered against me.I had been taking medication to assist me but it seemed to do nothing but mess up my cycles and make me miserable. Again with potentially very poor outcomes.

What I loved about your voice was your certainty in your decision, your stubborness, your trust in your inner voice and it was that that really touched me. Just like you I also had been dabbling with raw eating on and off and my interest in learning about optimal living has blossomed. I decided after your call enough was enough… pharmaceuticals are not the answer…..I wanted to trust my own body.

I am now enjoying a mainly raw diet , have even started making green juices (thanks for your recipies!) and am getting additional support from reflexology, meditation and maintaining positive thought. There is a wonderful supportive book too called ‘ The Fertility Diet ‘ by Sarah Dobbyn which is extremely well thumbed and has proven cases of success for more mature potential mothers such as me!
Whatever the outcome I know this will all serve me well into the future, so I can’t lose!

I was also inspired after your interview to start a blog to follow my journey. Mainly for myself to log what happens….hopefully a little miracle :)

Thank you Polly all the very best with everything you do.I will definitely be signing up for your Raw Classes to make my journey a little more fun!
Sam xx
ps Slightly embarressed this will get such a public airing (!) but really wanted to let you know.


Emma July 14, 2011 at 6:39 am

Hi Polly

My mum is really interested in raw foods and its her birthday this weekend, she can’t make it to your next raw food workshop which would have been ideal, but do you have any suggestions on a bunch of things I might get her to help her get started?

You are looking fabulous!



Leon July 25, 2011 at 8:46 pm

Dear Polly,

What a great nutritional clinic you have built for yourself. Some of your recipies & programmes are really quite exquisite and underlie the fact that nutrition truely is the key to physiological & psychological wellbeing.

Being from the sporting world, nutrition is directly proportional to performance and would really like your opinion on a few things. It is important to get the right amount of calories and at the right time, how do you structure your diet to provide the right level of nutiriton througout the day? And do you utilise the gylcemic index in food selection and would you have any recommendations on this?

I think with the powers you have shown nutrition to have for yourself in your own personal struggle with your health i think something similar may be able to be gained with injury prevention so would be really keen to hear your thoughts on that link and how raw food diet / fruit juices could work in a high nutrient diet.

I would be keen to discuss further, i look forward to hearing from you.

Kindest Regards



Ric Clayton July 27, 2011 at 9:42 pm

Hi Polly,

I’ve recently read about your approach to cancer and healthy/natural living. I find your approach to fighting cancer very inspiring and intestesting.
Close family members of mine have suffered in the past so I tend to take a deeper look at cancer and nutrition.

What are your thoughts on essential fatty acids on health? Namely omega 3,6 & 9 in the correct ratios.
Udo Erasmus has a superb book on fats ( fats that heal, fats that kill ), reading this opened my eyes for sure.

Cheers, Ric.


Iona Thomas August 16, 2011 at 6:55 pm

Hi Polly,
I’ve bought a ticket to your Boot Camp Special Raw Foods Workshop on 1st October but have found out I am double booked and cannot come! I am so disappointed as I have heard such positive things about your workshops and was looking forward to meeting you. I’m not sure if you have any more workshops planned but if so please could I transfer my ticket to another workshop?

Thanks, Iona xx


Ruth August 23, 2011 at 5:56 pm

Hi Polly,

Happy Monday!

Met you at a Suzy G event a while back. Glad you are taking the bull by the horns and living a hleathy and happy life. The website is fantastic, I have passed it onto a friend who may benefit from this approach.

Do you have a facebook page so I can keep in touch without needing to come back to the site all the time.

Warm regards



polly August 23, 2011 at 6:02 pm

Hi Ruth!

How are you doing? Thanks for checking in on my site – so glad you like it – thanks for the feedback ;o)

Yes i do have a facebook page – you can click in the facebook link on the right hand side of the page or visit me here

Look forward to meeting you again soon!

Karen Wolfer September 12, 2011 at 6:27 pm

Hello Polly.

I came across your reponse to a video by Marie Forleo, and I want to send you a direct “Yes, you can do it” message to conteract any naysayers out there. I have a neighbor who defeated her cancer diagnosis naturally, so I know you can do it, too.
I have heard that laughter can be a big help, so let me share with you a free video we put together for last year’s Christmas season. It is a bit early, but if it would bring a smile, then that is a good thing. Here is the link:


Emma Hampton October 15, 2011 at 9:09 pm

Hi Polly

I just wondered if you have read or watched any programmes about Dr. Lorraine Day ( She had such a similar story to yours, she was told she had tumour that could not be treated about the size of a grapefruit on her chest. She is a former A & E doctor who changed her diet and lifestyle completely and her cancer has now completely gone. It’s interesting to read and truly inspirational but what I found most baffling is when I tried to relay her story to others, some were so sceptical and wouldn’t believe that food could cure cancer. I think it’s maybe a combination of ignorance and the laziness to research that people react that way. I just wondered if you have had any similar experiences?



polly October 16, 2011 at 10:24 am

Hey Emma

No i havent heard of her but i will certainly check her out – thank you! I too am completely baffled when people deny that food has an impact on the body…..its unbelievable!! It makes us fat and sick, but it doesn’t cause cancer….UM WHAT?! CRAZY! Anyway, thank you for letting me know about Dr Day ;o)



Camilla Davis October 24, 2011 at 7:06 am

Hi Polly,

read your story in Glamour this month and thought you might want to check Clemens Cuby’s webpage and books (unfortunately, as far as I know, they only come in German). He’s a writer and film-maker, dealing with the issue of self-healing, something he got around after he had an accident and was told he would never walk again, and yet, within a year, he was up on his feet again. He has an academy and does lectures and seminars as well.
Best wishes,


nicky October 29, 2011 at 6:57 pm

Hi Polly, I’ve just discovered your blog, and you are so inspiring! I’m going to really try and up the amount of raw food I eat every day. So thank-you, for sharing all your discoveries.
I would be interested to hear what your lifestyle and diet was like before the cancer? were you always quite naturally a healthy person, or did you change your lifestyle dramatically?
I wish you the very best in your quest for health, and feel sure that you must be curing yourself!

Hi Polly,

Thank you for giving us a little bit of hope!

I have come across your story in a magazine where it said that you have cured yourself of lymphedema. My dad currently has this condition, we think as a result of his chemo for his lung cancer. Unfortunately doctors are not able to help him and he is suffering quite a lot and I was wondering if you could share your story of how you cured it.

Thanks and kind regards


polly November 4, 2011 at 12:20 pm

Hi Vicky,

Thanks for visiting my site. There were a number of different things I did, including diet and lifestyle changes, skin brushing, certain types of exercise, visualisation etc. There is some information about how to manage side effects in my book The Cancer Journey If you would like more specific help with your dads situation, then I offer one-on-one coaching sessions which might be of interest to you?

Many thanks

Dear Polly

I have just read the article about you in the November issue of Glamour and I have to say you are an inspiration in every way possible. Earlier this year, my younger sister discovered that she had pre cancerous cells of the cervix, she had them removed and is fine, but I will be pointing her in the direction of your website and hopefully she will take advantage of all of your advice, as I will also be doing.

I’m not sure if you have discovered this as yet, as it was not mentioned in the article, but I wanted to let you know what I have recently discovered, the benefits of high doses of vitamin C. You may already know this as you are extremely well researched, but on the off chance that you didn’t know, I just had to tell you, here is one link of many that will give information:

Too many of my family have passed away in the past from cancer and if something this simple can have such extreme benefits, I feel it is my duty to pass the information on. Please also try reiki, as a practitioner, I know cancer patients respond really well with regular healings.

Thank you for your wonderful website. I wish you the best of luck and good healing.

Kind Regards

Dear Polly,
thanks for the amazing talk you gave on Wednesday last week about helping the body to heal and that wat encouraching many people to look at their life with a more positive perspective. And Happy birthday to you, wishing you hapiness, joy and peace in the great journey you are taking.
Lots of love Gabi


SArah November 24, 2011 at 11:09 am

Hi Polly
Have just seen you on The Wright stuff and thought you looked great and that you are absolutely ‘onto something’ with the alkaline diet. I lost my mum to breast cancer when she was fifty and now my nana (her mum) has very advanced breast cancer so I am very intested in finding out what is going on with our bodies to cause this. I think that conventional medicine seems blinded by treating the symptoms but not the cause?
My main reason for writing is I would really like to know if you’ve read ‘The China Study’ by T Colin Campbell PhD and Thomas M Capbell II as their research absolutely states that an alkaline vegan wholefood diet can cure cancer and many many other ills? I wondered what your views are on it as I am trying to follow a mainly vegan wholefood diet in the hope that it safeguards myself and my family?
Many thanks
Sarah Impey


polly November 24, 2011 at 2:41 pm

Hi Sarah,

Yes, I’ve read The China Study which is a great read and would wholeheartedly recommend a mainly plant-based diet for you and your family. If you are concerned about cancer being in the family, then check out what bruce LIpton has to say about epigenetics which is the study that shows you are not your genes and that your lifestyle choices, what you eat, think and drink plays a major role in whether those genes are turned on or not. Amazing stuff.

Good luck with everything

Lots of love x


Kay November 24, 2011 at 11:44 am

Hi Polly

I just watched you on Matthew Wright and wanted to tell you about an amazing new healing mode, called The Healing Codes … helps you to heal on a deep, cellular level and is so fascinating and amazing results! The book is available and details the process from start to finish – simple to use technique… UK contacts are: Jack & Anne Stewart,

Take care

Kay X


polly November 24, 2011 at 2:37 pm

Hi – thanks so much! I will certainly check it out. Love xx


michele morrison November 24, 2011 at 11:01 pm

Hi Polly I listened to you on The Wright Stuff this morning.I have to say I was so interested in everything you said.I am just about to order your book for a friend currently living with cancer.I was also intrigued to hear you say, you self healed limphodema.I have a friend who has suffered it for 7 years!Is there info in the book relating to this?as I would like to pass it on to her.
Thankyou Michele:)


polly November 25, 2011 at 9:17 am

Hi Michele,

Thanks so much ;o) There is some info in the book about how to improve lymphoedema but it doesn’t go into specifically what I did. If your friend would like support in this area, then it would be worth scheduling a one-on-one skype session with me so I can look specifically into their diet and lifestyle and make recommendations as to what she/he do to improve their situation. More info here –


Clarissa December 4, 2011 at 12:42 pm

Hi Polly,

I have a very similar diagnosis to you but mine was an aggressive uterine cancer which spread after chemo to a lymph node under my arm. I’ve had surgery and last scan was clear but according t the doctors I am incurable and they gave me a pretty dire prognosis which, at my age, seems unbearable. So, how do you deal with statistics and prognosis when the doctors are so sure they know what will happen? I am finding it so hard to deal with and very challenged that green juice and meditation is enough to change this scenario.

It is so amazing for me to see a woman of a similar age living with cancer and looking amazing and being successful. The public face of cancer – bald, weak and hooked to chemo drips – doesn’t offer a positive role-model for young people with cancer. It’s not very empowering so I am so grateful to see someone I can relate to.



polly December 5, 2011 at 5:07 pm

Hi Clarissa,

Its really easy to get caught up in your thoughts about what may or may not happen in the future and as long as you’re worrying about the future or thinking about the past, you’re missing this moment right now. For me, I can look around and see that Im sitting here typing away, im safe and cosy and warm in my house and everything is just fine. Yes I supposedly have “incurable cancer” but the reality is that I am fine right now and it is unlikely i am about to die right now! So rather than get trapped in fear-based thinking, I stay right here right now in this moment where everything is as perfect as it can be. Make sense?



Tara December 7, 2011 at 5:12 am

Hiya Polly;
Wow our stories are so alike! I had a wierd variant of endo-cervical adenocarcinoma 3 years ago (I was diagnosed 3 years ago this week actually!) 😮 and I had the same treatments as you; brachytherapy gutted me and I’m still suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder from it! I have been filled with anger and rage over the past few years since I had cancer (I was only 29) and at the lack of progress in curing metastatic cancer especially in us under 40. I’ve worked hard as an activist for the Young Adult cancer community and have also chosen not to go to followup visits with my oncologists, and turned away from conventional medicine because as you know, recurrent cervical cancer is considered *incurable*.

I just watched your clip on ‘the Wright Stuff’ and everything Matthew said to you about why you decided to shun additional chemo/radiotherapy *I’ve* also heard before! The thing is, I’ve also done tonnes of scientific research (I have an advanced degree in Ecology and Geology) and know that they really are pointless for metastatic cancer. I know, like you that I don’t want a horrible quality of life especially knowing that chemo/radio would only extend the inevitable and you’d feel like rubbish all the time! I have now chosen to follow the route like you and whilst it can be scary sometimes with all the unknowns, it is empowering and allows us to savour the moments of each day and enjoy life to the fullest!
Cheers to you! :)


julie south December 9, 2011 at 12:48 am

Hi, I watched your interview on the Wright Stuff a couple of wks ago and was completely inspired by you to the point of writing down who you are, your book, website, etc.

2 weeks on from that I find out the unexpected devestating news that my wonderful dad has cancer. TONIGHT INFACT!!!

I remebered you and told him all about this inpirational woman I have found out about, told him about the book, website, etc and tried to view the interview on the Wright Stuff, but It wouldnt let me view it…………………………..please help?????????


polly December 9, 2011 at 10:13 am

Hi Julie,

Im so sorry to hear about your dad…before you rush into anything, treatment wise, get all the info, research and make the best decision based on the outcome and prognosis. (Its very easy to give our power away to our doctors.) Yes unfortunately channel 5 keep removing the link because it’s copyrighted…but i have a clip i will send you ;o)

Do you have my book as that is a brilliant place to start.



Katherine December 28, 2011 at 10:44 pm

Dear Polly

On the detox you posted – so beautiful in terms of less is more. I was wondering, why you were inclined to charge when a little of your mind and such little time would carry such a long way on the de-clutter body and heart of so many.


xxx Katherine


polly December 28, 2011 at 11:16 pm

Hi Katherine,
Many thanks for your comment. More often than not, these types of programs take more than a little time and ultimately I am sharing my expertise through the program which I consider of value and therefore chargeable. Giving it away for free is a bit like a massueuse dolling out free massages – it doesn’t happen because their expertise are worth paying for. This is my living after all! ;o)
Lots of love x


Kate January 2, 2012 at 12:24 pm

Hi polly , I’m new to ur site and I’m finding it amazing , I read ur artical in fabulous mag and think ur truly insparational .
I’m lookin to slowly introduce raw food into my diet and thoughtid start with the clarity cleanse ebook but I’m not very up on mod tec so not sure what happens do I buy it then it comes on to my email? Or is there an actual book form I can purchase , Sorry for the silly question thanks x


polly January 2, 2012 at 12:52 pm

Hi Kate,

Thanks for stopping by ;o) Fab news you want to start eating more raw…the best option for you is probably my Kickstart ebook as that is an intro to eating more raw food. The Clarity Cleanse is a 48 hour juice fast. It’s an ebook so once you have made payment, it gets emailed to you and from there you can download and save to your computer. Here’s the link to Kickstart –

Lots of love x


Beth January 5, 2012 at 12:38 pm

Hi Polly
I bought your book after seeing you on the Wright Stuff. I also find your podcasts inspiring. I had a lumpectomy and radiotherapy a few years ago and thought everything was fine–I wish I had discovered the information you present at that time because now I have a recurrence and have been told I need a mastectomy. I am finding that really difficult to cope with.
I wondered whether you think apricot seeds are beneficial or not.


polly January 5, 2012 at 6:07 pm

Hi Beth, sorry to hear that. Make sure you get the support you need. Yes apricot kernels are good – but no more than 7 per day apparently….x


Lorna January 6, 2012 at 12:37 pm

I just wanted to say a big THANK YOU POlly for my goodie bag. It arrived before Chritsmas but I only managed to collect it from the post office yesterday as I’ve been away. What a lovely treat to brighten up January! I see that you have more Raw Food workshop dates, but sadly can’t make either. I would love to come this year though, so will keep my eyes open for more dates!


Matthew January 10, 2012 at 7:38 pm


I recently came across your website, which I find most informative, while perusing the pages of Mind Body Green. From your website, I learned about the Institute For Integrative Nutrition. I am curious to learn more about the program, but I want to hear directly from former students. How was your experience studying at IIN? Would you recommend the program to others? My own health is a priority, and I have a great desire to learn about all things dealing with nutrition and wellness, specifically from a holistic standpoint. Any information you could provide would be much appreciated.

Thank you,


Lou Q January 12, 2012 at 6:21 pm

Hi Polly

I want to thankyou very much for all that you do, its an inspiration that is helping me and others to have the strength to be who we are :)

I had an experience at the doctors this morning where he basically said I was dying from thyroid disease and would not get better and I had to get used to it, even with medication lol, and Im not meaning to slate doctor as he is a very nice fellow and generally helps me out but it made me really determined to let myself be heard and get to where I want to be healthwise. I was ascending and he didnt even touch me with what he said.

So the combination of health advice, inspirational people like you and my ascension practise give me the strength to know there is another way! Without that I would be in a mad house :)

So thanks again, and any advice on who to contact re healthy eating and being your own guide with your health would be helpful, Im on benefits, so need as much free advice as possible lol and I follow your blog and information too already :)

Take care



Caroline S February 6, 2012 at 1:06 pm

Hi Polly,

Just wanted to say what a fab website & what you have achieved is amazing, i have just had my lymph nodes removed after melanoma came back under my arm, and i want to get fit and well. Navigating the web is like a minefield, your website is very imformative & am looking forward to reading your book.

Iam starting to change my diet, and wondered if you could recomend a good company that delivers organic fruit etc UK wide ( i live in Lancashire in the middle of no where and the choice of fruit etc around here isnt great) and where do you buy the chlorella and pure synergy?

Also do you know if you can get a juicer & blender combined or do these have to be separate machines?

Caroline x


Louise Hall February 9, 2012 at 9:22 am

Hey Polly

I just wanted to thank you for being such an inspiration, whilst people around me are so negative about my choices; being Vegan, eating raw food, meditating, juicing etc, despite how vibrant my health is, it really is a thrill to see you so passionate, so devoted to healing yourself and assisting others and providing such great resources. My grandmother has been diagnosed with incurable cancer, my mother has had various forms of cancer, both suffered terribly with their menstrual cycle and i vow to do everything i can do to make sure i am kind to my body, to respect it, so i can avoid future illness and disease. Shame my family are simply not interested.

I am proud and remain strong, and aim to fill my family up with delicious, raw goodies as often as i can, and love to see their shock when something tastes divine. I AM PROBABLY ONE OF THE HEALTHIEST 19 YEAR OLDS AROUND!

Lots of love and happiness for your healing journey
Louise xxx


polly February 9, 2012 at 3:47 pm

Hey Louise, I just wanted to say that I know it can be tough sometimes following your heart when so many people around you are being negative but keep faith in yourself and your own wisdom, keep listening to yourself and you’ll be just fine. Big love to you xx


Melissa Sharp February 15, 2012 at 10:56 am

Hi there… I stumbled across your site from Patricia Peat tweeting about it! I just wondered if you could give me your personal opinion about the integrative nutrition course you studied… I’ve looked at many nutrition courses and they are still a bit ‘old school’ for me. Thanks for your help. Melissa x


polly February 15, 2012 at 2:44 pm

Hi Melissa – ill email you direct ;o)


Gill Jacobs April 24, 2012 at 10:22 pm

Hi Polly,
Have you ever questioned whether raw may not be right for getting over cancer? Its great for detoxing, but not for building up, which you need after detoxing. Juicing is great, but it is also cold and damp. I note that one of your co-authors heroically battled non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. Do google Jerry Brunetti, given six months to live with this, and alive 13 yrs later after doing green juicing, plus grass fed meat, raw egg yolks, raw milk, butter and cream, fermented cod liver oil, kefir, fermented vegetables, wild fish, and hyper-immune milk, plus loads more interventions. Fighting cancer can do well with help from a high fat and ketogenic diet, thus depriving the cancer cells of energy to grow and feed off.

Just presenting one way is a shame, because some people may need other ways to get better. And its definitely not just up to the mind to turn things around – it has to be based also on sound nutritional principles which don’t just revolve around detox, and which are individually tailored to different metabolic types and nutritional needs.

Your grit and determination are inspirational. May you find the way that suits you best in your battle to stay healthy and cancer free. Gill


polly April 25, 2012 at 8:32 am

Hi gill. Thanks for your feedback. I’m not 100% raw and don’t advocate going 100%, merely just adding in more raw to your diet. I will certainly check out Jerry although from what Ive read im not yet convinced about eating animal protein as the China Study shows that it promotes cancer growth. So much contradicting info huh?! Oh well thanks. lots of love x


Robert Dodd April 26, 2012 at 12:28 pm

Hi Polly

Two things – firsty you have mentioned a book “how toheal your life” which I remember reading about 20 years ago, it made sense until she described what caused each type of disease, and how we bring it on ourselves. I am open minded but I beleive Alcohol can cause all sorts of cancers, so can smoking, so can eating rubbish or in many cases people being exposed to carciogens like asbestos unknowingly. I cant believe they all thought the same to end up with asbestosis. It was 20 years ago but that’s one reason I wasn’t keen on returning to that book .. in fairness Maybe I flicked through, I wasn’t a keen reader in my 20’s !!

secondly since we started a healthy lifestyle and avoid breads,sugar, alcohol my wife has lost a lot of weight, to the point she feels a bit underweight. Is there a healthy way to put on weight?

thirdly (lol) I am really impressed by your attitude, understanding and am really happy you are doing well :)

Rob x


polly April 26, 2012 at 1:06 pm

Hi Rob, yes i agree with you completely that our lifestyle choices play a major part as well as the emotional aspect. For me the book gives me an insight into what might be going on but in my opinion its not foolproof. Re losing weight on cutting out the bad foods, you’ll find that you will lose a bit of weight at the beginning but that your body will normalise – thats what happened to me anyway. Try adding in coconut oil (its much better to cook with than olive oil), adding help protein powders to smoothies and eating more protein-rich grains like quinoa and buckwheat. Hope that helps! xxx


Mimi May 4, 2012 at 9:02 pm

Hi Polly,

I am a personal trainer, and I am interested in going raw vegan…can you tell me if you excercise, and if so, what your regimne is? Has going raw decreased or increased your energy and muscle mass? Just wondering, as I would like to give it a shot, and hopefully pass the word along to my clients.




polly May 5, 2012 at 10:32 am

Hi Mimi

Im not big on cardio – im more of a yoga bunny so cant really answer your question. Check out Mike at as he’s big on raw and working out. Hope that helps xx


NG February 27, 2013 at 8:58 am

Hi Polly,

I’m a student nutritional therapist and one of my clients is a big fan of yours – having looked at your website I’m not surprised, it’s fab! I just wanted to find out a little more about your views on protein. Do you think it’s important to make sure we’re getting enough protein, or will it just come automatically from eating lots of raw fruit and veg? What protein sources do you go for – besides hemp protein powder?



polly March 1, 2013 at 10:41 am

Hi! Welcome and thank you. Protein is a biggie and one I get asked about all the time…yes of course, protein is important and i feel that we are able to get plenty from green leafy veg, cooked quinoa, hemp and blue green algaes if consumed regularly.


Jacqui Deoir October 14, 2013 at 8:16 am

Morning Polly
Would love to connect with you to help promote your downloadable books for our Gifts section in Fresh Vegan Magazine and also to arrange an interview to feature you in our magazine in 2014 :)



polly October 16, 2013 at 8:53 am

Hi Jacqui, would love to chat. I’ll drop you an email to the address you used here. Thanks


Marjie October 16, 2013 at 6:02 pm

Hi Polly,
I came across your website via MindBodyGreen! I am also a two-time cancer survivor, also both before the age of 28. (childhood Leukemia age 12 and breast cancer age 26). Today I am blessed to be healthy and strong. I have a rare genetic disorder called Li Fraumeni syndrome that makes one prone to getting multiple cancers. After I found out about my diagnosis about two years ago I have been doing everything in my power to be as healthy as possible. I run, do yoga, juice veggies (I love kale and dandelion greens!), eat lots of fruits and vegetables, have become a vegetarian, and try to eat organic and non-GMO whenever possible. Thank you for sharing your brave story and journey with us, and educating us on healthy eating habits. This means the world to me .. please keep up the good work and keep spreading the word!


James McInally October 22, 2013 at 9:22 am

Hi Polly,
Its almost impossible to contact you, as your forms are down! Can you email me or direct message @addicthelper as we’d like to do a tie up with you.

Very best wishes
Head of Marketing


hayley shuttleworth October 26, 2013 at 7:17 pm


I too have been diagnosed with advanced cervical cancer & currently undergoing my 2nd lot of chemo as mine as come back in a couple of lymph nodes in my pelvis. Ive just brought a juicer so im juicing twice a day & have started to have an organic delivery once a week.

I just need some guidance really on the best foods to eat as im new to all of this & also are there any foods/supplements I need to avoid as I don’t want anything to ruin what the chemo is doing.

look forward to hearing from you

Hayley xx
