SCHMANCER

Amazing Wellness - - EDITORS NOTE -

“I re­al­ized very quickly that what hap­pened to me has hap­pened to mil­lions of Amer­i­cans—mis­di­ag­no­sis and mis­treat­ment,”

says Drescher. HUMO Fra llaugh for decades in her roles on TV and in film, but in 1999 some­thing de­cid­edly un-funny hap­pened to her when she was di­ag­nosed with stage I uter­ine can­cer— af­ter two years of mis­di­ag­noses. Her sense of hu­mor and de­ter­mi­na­tion helped her make a full re­cov­ery, and her strug­gle with get­ting the ap­pro­pri­ate diagn niz smile) hap­pened to mil­lions of Amer­i­cans—mis­di­ag­no­sis and mis­treat­ment,” she says. “Can­cer Schmancer was founded in or­der to em­power peo­ple with knowl­edge about the dis­ease and pro­vide them the tools they need to fight it … knowl­edge is power.”

One of the things Drescher be­lieves is key in fight­ing can­cer is re­duc­ing ex­po­sure to en­vi­ron­men­tal tox­ins. On Oc­to­ber 13 at the Skir­ball Cul­tural Cen­ter in Los An­ge­les, Can­cer Schmancer will host its first Women’s Health Sum­mit, with a fo­cus on detox­i­fy­ing the home en­vi­ron­ment. “When you [con­sider] that most dis­eases—can­cer and many oth­ers that plague Amer­i­cans chron­i­cally— are en­vi­ron­men­tally stim­u­lated,” says Drescher, “we have a great ca­pac­ity to re­duce our risk of get­ting can­cer as well as a host of other dis­eases and al­ler­gies sim­ply by learn­ing how to detox our home.” Go to can­cer­schmancer.org for more in­for­ma­tion about this event. And see our in­ter­view with Drescher on p. 40 for her fa­vorite toxin-free prod­ucts. As part of cre­at­ing a healthy home en­vi­ron­ment, Drescher strongly be­lieves in en­sur­ing the health and beauty prod­ucts we use daily are safe and nat­u­ral.

In honor of Breast Can­cer Aware­ness month, we’ve in­cluded a Q&A with Isaac Eliaz, MD, LAC, MS (p. 50), who takes a holis­tic ap­proach to fight­ing the dis­ease. Eliaz an­swers com­mon ques­tions about breast health (many of which most tra­di­tional doc­tors won’t tell you), and rec­om­mends sup­ple­ments you can take now to re­duce your odds of de­vel­op­ing breast can­cer.
