Chris Wark was diagnosed with Stage III colon cancer when he only 26 years old. He had the tumor surgically removed but elected not to do chemotherapy. Instead, he changed his diet and experimented with many other alternative therapies. He is currently cancer-free. Wark has appeared on The Ricki Lake Show, The Lisa Oz Show and many other tv and radio programs, including a cancer documentary called The C Word. Wark wrote a self-help book on natural healing called Chris Beat Cancer which became a best seller. He has hundreds of thousands of followers on social media.
Chris Wark’s Diet
Wark believes diet is just about the most important thing you can do to prevent cancer. Before he got his diagnosis, he says he had a very fast metabolism, was very skinny and could get away with eating anything, which in his case meant a lot of junk food. Following his surgery, the hospital served him unhealthy food (a sloppy joe) and it occurred to him that he should be eating better. To heal himself, he adopted a raw vegan diet. He says the best sources of clean, high-quality fuel for your body comes from raw, organic fruit, vegetables, seeds and nuts. He did a lot of juicing and also took a bunch of vitamin supplements. Today, he still sticks to mainly fresh, organic fruit and vegetables, and the only meat he eats is local, organic and pasture-raised. He says both food manufacturers and the medical field are big business and care more about their bottom line than your health.

Make It Fresh
Wark said he would make a batch of juice in the morning to drink throughout the day, but later discovered that much of the nutrient content is lost unless you drink it right away. He says if you are going to store your juice, be sure to use airtight glass bottles.
Smoking is the number one cause of cancer, but Wark says a lot of people don’t know the second most common cause: obesity. He says he can’t stress enough how important diet is in preventing and fighting cancer.
Wark ate several cloves of crushed, raw garlic each day as part of his protocol. He says he stank, but at least he lived to tell about it. Wark also recommends raw onions to combat cancer.
Wark says to eat organic produce because it is much healthier than what you’ll find in the non-organic section. The agro-biz fruit and vegetables grown from genetically modified seeds, and awash in harmful chemical fertilizers and pesticides.
The Bottom Line
Wark says it’s important to remember that the food industry is a business, and looking to earn as much profit as it can. This means using ingredients which are toxic to us.
What to Eat
Raw, organic vegetables
Fresh, organic fruit
Clean, filtered water
What to Avoid
Genetically modified foods
Wark On His Pre-Cancer Diet
I was not a healthy eater. I ate typical fast food junk. I was a Standard American Diet guy.’
Wark On Raw Foods
‘Raw food is living food. Cooked food is dead.’
Wark On Nutrients
‘The vitamins, minerals, nutrients and enzymes in raw fruits, vegetables, seeds and nuts are bio available. Plants take these minerals from the soil and convert them into a form that the human body can absorb and use to repair itself.’
Wark On Non-Organic Produce
‘If you compare commercial and organic produce in your local grocery, you will likely find that the commercial produce looks much better, but don’t be fooled. They have mastered the science of growing “beautiful” produce.’
Wark On Veggies
‘Dark greens, cruciferous veggies and garlic account for less than 1% of our Western diet! Hello?’
Chris Wark’s Fitness Routine
Weekly Workout Routine
On the Rebound
Wark recommends using a trampoline as the best exercise for your immune system because jumping really gets your lymphatic fluid moving, a key component to detoxifying the body.
Even if you’re not into bouncing, Wark recommends some form of exercise that makes you sweat. Your skin is your biggest detoxifying organ, and sweating releases toxins through the skin.
Give Me Exercise Or Else
Wark says exercise is extremely important to prevent cancer, and to help cure it. He says doctors who discourage cancer patients from exercising are doing their patients a disservice.
Rock of Ages
Wark says he often listens to worship music or healing scriptures to compound the healthful effects of exercise.
Rise & Rebound
Wark says you can streamline your day by exercising before your daily shower. He also says even if you don’t break a sweat, rebounding still offers health benefits.
Fresh Air Fountain of Health
Wark recommends exercising out of doors whenever possible to connect with nature and God.
Wark says it’s important to breathe deeply as you exercise, especially when out in fresh air.

Chris Wark’s Lifestyle
Wark says while the usual recommendation of 6-8 hours may be okay, you may need more like 9-10. He also says in Eastern medicine, the hours between 11 pm and 1 am are critical for recharging many of your internal systems.
Be Kind to Yourself
For quality sleep, and improved quality of life, Wark says to do yourself a favor and eat a dinner that is easy to digest. Avoid things like meat and dairy in the evening and do not eat late.
Wark recommends taking a warm bath with calming essential oils like tea tree, frankincense, lavender or myrrh to help you relax in the evening. He also recommends reading, and avoiding doing anything stimulating, like surfing the internet, eating sugar or thinking about stressful things, like work.
Some of the alternatives to chemotherapy Wark tried include Gerson Therapy (juicing), the Beck Protocol (blood electrification, PEMFs. colloidal silver and ozonated water), and the Gonzalez Protocol (vitamin therapy).
Wark recommends exposing as much of your skin as possible to sunlight to maximize vitamin D production — but to avoid tanning beds at all costs. He also says you should avoid conventional sunscreens because they’re chock-full of chemicals.

‘If you are sick, you need as much sleep as possible. You need to practically be comatose. Think hibernation.’
Wark On Winding Down
‘Stop watching stressful television. Especially the news.’

‘Forty percent of all cancers are caused by obesity.’
Wark On Opioids And Cancer
