I came across this video while reading psychologist Arloski’s blog on wellness coaching.
It’s about Dr. David Servan-Schreiber who succumbed to brain cancer almost twenty years after he got it.
During Dr. Servan-Schreiber’s years with cancer he inspired people who have cancer to fight for themselves through diet, being present and hope.
I found the video moving and a confirmation of how much our bodies are the result of what we do. As Servan-Schreiber says, “Food is something you do to your body three times a day.” The idea of food being something we do to our body was a different way of looking at what we choose to put into our mouths.
You can substitute “diabetes” for “cancer” throughout this short video and I guarantee you will get something out of it. Even if just a reminder about how you’re caring for yourself and your diabetes.
Thank you Dr. Servan-Schreiber.
