Today I am excited to introduce you to one of my good friends, Steve Fillmore. Steve is a 42-year-old flight attendant from Minneapolis, Minnesota. He has beat cancer not only once, but twice. Seven months ago, Steve was bald and just barely overcoming his second bout of cancer. Just look at him now! We are lucky to have him here with us to share his story of hope as well as give us some tips to maintaining vibrant health.

Steve and DrewSteve’s Story

A few years ago, Steve was diagnosed with testicular cancer. After he was diagnosed, he spent about a week trying to decide what to do. Anyone who has experienced cancer understands what an overwhelming and confusing task this can be. After seeing so many different answers on the internet, he got frustrated and just shut his computer off.

Eventually, he decided on surgery to cut the cancer out of his body. The surgery was successful.

Exactly one year later, Steve began feeling intense pain in his back. He thought he might be having a kidney stone and went to the emergency room. After some scans, they found a cancerous tumor that was the size of his fist.

This time around, Steve decided to use chemotherapy in order to kill the cancer and get rid of the tumor. He spent about a month receiving intense treatments that often took about 8 hours a day to complete.

What was your darkest day?

“There was one point where my veins were collapsing and I didn’t feel like eating and for a miniscule amount of time I felt like giving up, because my body was giving up. I don’t know how to explain what it feels like but it is kind of like having the worst case of the flu and your bones ache and you want to rip your bones out because they hurt so much. I would take aspirin but nothing would work for the pain. I almost wanted to say, ‘..take me, I’m ready.’”

What pulled you through?

“What really got me through was my husband back at home and my cat. We have a lot of living plants in my house and that gave me hope. Also, watching the whole community of Fitlife and watching Drew, that gave me hope.”

Steve

How did you find Fitlife?  

“I found Drew and the Fitlife community when I was searching for natural cures when I had cancer the first time. When I had cancer the second time and began chemo; that’s when I began to immerse myself in the Fitlife community. What really attracted me to the Fitlife community is its’ openness and the desire to help others.”

Some Things Steve Learned From Cancer

 

MINDSET

 

Steve used to go to the cancer center and hear the other cancer patients walk up to the counter and say, “I’m here for my poison.”

This bothered Steve a great deal. “I was angry at them for saying that out loud.”

Steve decided on his own tactic to help keep him positive.

“Before I received my drugs for chemo I would place my hands on the chemo drug and I would say ‘I’m here to receive my healing.’” Steve felt like this made a big difference for him.

Steve 1POSITIVE AFFIRMATIONS

A positive affirmation is a short statement that you repeat to yourself in order to reprogram your subconscious to think an empowering train of thought. Affirmations are simple and are meant to represent your deepest desires and potential.

The word ‘affirmation’ comes from the Latin affirmare and means “to make steady or strengthen.”

“Instead of saying ‘I’m having a crappy day,’ we need to focus on something that is more positive. When we say those things (negative), the universe is going to give us more crap. So instead I would say, ‘why am I having such a great day?’ and the universe would send me more greatness.”

You have amazing potential within you. In order to get where you want to be you have to have faith and confidence. Even if you don’t feel like you have the confidence or the faith right now, you can and you will. What you think and what you say to yourself are extremely powerful and potentially life changing!

LIVE IN THE MOMENT

 

“Cancer taught me how to be still. It taught me how to be in the moment. It taught me to be humble and really savor right now. The past is already done. The future is not even here. It really forced me to be here.”

Essential Oils

Essential oils are the aromatic compounds found in plants. Often called the “lifeblood” of the plant, they help protect it from viruses and disease and also help the plant reproduce. They are in essence the plant’s own medicine.

Essential oils are becoming increasingly popular and many people enjoy using them to help with everyday ailments or simply to lift the spirits. They are highly concentrated and studies continue to show the benefits, even helping some people recover from more serious health issues.

Essential Oil bottle

Some of Steve’s favorite oils include frankincense and turmeric. Frankincense has antibacterial properties and is good for strengthening the immune system and calming inflammation.  The scent may also help with stress, anxiety, panic attacks, depression and insomnia. Turmeric oil has potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agents and can be used for any application where these properties are necessary.    

Juicing

We are BIG juicers here at Fitlife! The highest nutritional foods on the planet are fresh raw fruits, vegetables, herbs, seaweeds, nuts and seeds. They are full of enzymes, vitamins, minerals, amino acids, antioxidants, simple sugars and water. Juicing removes the fiber from these foods, making their nutrients easy to digest and absorb. On an empty stomach, a glass of juice is absorbed into the bloodstream within a few minutes, leaving you feeling mentally clear and energized.

Wheatgrass

Along with smart food choices and exercise, juicing is an incredible super-boost for your system. There is simply no competition when it comes to providing your body with vibrant, living foods. I would recommend organic fruits and veggies whenever possible. It has been proven that they contain several times the nutritional value of their non-organic counterparts.

Smoothies

The idea is to find the right balance of fruits, veggies and greens to throw into a blender to make a delicious smoothie and provide a powerhouse, nutrient-rich boost for your body! The possible and proven benefits to drinking a green drink on a daily basis are numerous and include:

  • Weight management
  • Mood enhancement
  • Natural detox and cleansing
  • Immune support/boost
  • Huge percentage of daily need for vitamins, minerals and antioxidants
  • ENERGY increase that lasts
  • Fiber that you don’t get from juice
  • Feeling ‘light’ versus ‘heavy’
  • Happy cells!!!

Smoothie
More Organic

Eating more organic foods helps you to avoid toxic chemicals that are otherwise used liberally on the foods we eat. Organic food has also been shown to contain higher nutritional content than other foods.

Steve’s Juice Recipe Benefits

 

Steve's Juice Recipe

Grapefruit

Grapefruit helps to speed the metabolism, stimulate white blood cell creation, curb appetite and is packed with vitamins A, C, E and tons of minerals.  

Ginger  

Not only did ginger help Steve with his nausea during chemo treatments, but it also got rid of another unexpected medication side effect: hiccups! Ginger also helps to get rid of inflammation in the body, stimulate the digestive tract and soothe the stomach lining. Strong medication sometimes causes one’s digestive system to become congested and even freeze up. When this happens, the body experiences large amounts of pain. Ginger helps to get everything back up and flowing again.

Lemon

Lemons are powerful detoxifiers. Although they are an acidic fruit, they have an alkalizing effect on the body. And when your body is alkaline, disease cannot survive.  

Celery

Celery makes a great base for juice because it contains such a low amount of calories and high water content. It may also help to lower blood pressure, lower cholesterol, strengthen the immune system and work as a natural diuretic.

Parsley

Parsley is a great for detoxifying the blood and flushing out the kidneys.

Leafy Greens

Leafy greens are full of magnesium, an important mineral  that an estimated 80% of Americans are deficient in. They are also a good source of iron and calcium.

Jalapeno

Jalapenos have anti-inflammatory and pain relieving properties and also benefit the cardiovascular system. There is also some evidence showing that they may help the body fight some types of cancer.

What Our Clients Say*

During my FitLife transformation, I lost 70 pounds! That's why I signed up for the protocol, but the most exciting result is that I found ME in the process. I had been hiding under a pile of pounds, self-doubt, and grief! FitLife changed my life and I knew I had to share it with others.

-Lynne, Longwood FL

I started with Fitlife back in 2011-2012…I wrote into Fitlife asking for an extreme amount of help. I was 300 pounds, with high cholesterol, and Drew helped me transform my life. I lost over 130 pounds and I no longer have high cholesterol. Not only did I lose weight, so did my husband, who lost over 70 pounds!
