Remarkable Cancer Recovery on the Raw Vegan Diet

A truly inspiring video of an interview with long term raw vegan Storm Talifero and his brother Mike Talifero who recovered from cancer by switching his eating habits to a completely raw vegan diet. What you’ll find interesting about Mike was that he’s a top conditioned super athlete, racing across the country and winning. He’s even cycled cross country with Lance Armstrong in 8 days. This fellow is in top shape. But as he looked healthy from the outside, he suffered multiple bouts with cancer. The first few times he chose the conventional medicine of surgery and chemotherapy with dismal results. He suffered over-medication, complications and literally dying on the operating table by choosing traditional health care. He then chose to look at his eating habits and with some help and encouragement from his family, decided to switch to a raw vegan diet. He’s now cancer free and doesn’t plan to go back to his doctors. Watch his inspiring story below.

Storm Talifero is the co-author of The Garden Diet, an excellent guide to learning more about the raw vegan diet that includes recipes, advice and experiences.

    I love these stories! Quite inspiring. I suffer from Ulcerative Colitis and unabe to eat raw food as it is too rough on my system. What do you recommend I do to heal myself naturally? I have a great holistic doctor who has determined I’m gluten, dairy and soy intolerant as well as to avoid parabens and phthlates. I’m doing this while still on the prescription meds from my GI: Prednisone and Asacol. And the “nomal” vitamins and suppliment from my holisiti dr. like Vit B-1 & B-12, Acidopholus, cod liver oil, magnesium chloride, calcium citrate, Multi-360 (all sold by her office so they are also free of aloe, spirulina and anything else she said irritates the intestines) She will help me get off the Asacol once I’ve healed through this regimine and a diet consisting of steamed vegetables, brown rice, avocado, and some organic, clean meat, fish or poultry, at one meal a day.

    I did go to hippocrates Health institute in Florida in August after my first hospitalization in March when was diagnosed but their regimine of raw food and their suppliments brought on a relapse in August.

    Let me know what you think I can do to heal this disease – Oh, I’ve had psoriasis since age 6, I’m 48 now and had no signs of intestinal issue until June 2006.

    thank you,

    Hi Tina,
    Great to hear from you. I would recommend David Klein’s Self Healing Colitis & Crohn’s book. He healed himself and over 1000 others successfully using a 100% effective vegan diet. That may be helpful to you. Wish you all the best on this and your health and let me know how it works out!
