375: Ask Alli: Losing Both Parents to Cancer by the Time I Was 25 Years Old

Witnessing her mother and father — in short succession — lose their lives to cancer, Allison Melody endured significant trauma in her 20s. Why did their bodies fail them? Why did the doctors have no answers?

This tragic loss instilled in Allison an unwavering passion for nutrition and propelled her into the world of holistic health and healing.

She vowed to honor her parents’ memory by dedicating her life to finding a way to heal the body naturally. After interviewing hundreds who have healed themselves of chronic and degenerative diseases for her film Powered By Plants and podcast Food Heals, Allison now firmly believes that the body has the ability to heal itself when given the tools it needs to do so.

Tune in to Part 2 of Ask Alli to hear:

- Why her ex used to call Alli "Country Club"

- What Multiple Sclerosis is and how it affected Alli's mom

- The horrible teen experience that caused Alli give up red meat for good

- The "cure" that killed her mother before it killed the cancer

- Is it true that "Time Heals all Wounds?"

- Why a patchouli smelling doctors "office" did not cut it for Alli's baby boomer dad

- What losing both her parents to cancer taught Alli about disease, life, and love
