Twelve years ago I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I elected to have a lumpectomy, but after extensive research declined the prescribed radiation and chemotherapy because those treatments would further compromise my obviously overwhelmed immune system. Instead, I did everything natural I could find to cleanse my body of toxins and build up my immune system so that I would not get cancer again. I am thankful for the wake-up call cancer gave me to change my life and I am very grateful to Bloomingfoods for helping me save my life and regain my health. I no longer fear cancer and I am healthier in middle age than I have ever been.
The co-op provided me with a diverse and abundant selection of delicious organic fruits and vegetables, organic dairy products, nuts, seeds, oils, quality prepared foods, vitamins, homeopathic remedies, and non-toxic cleaning and body care supplies long before the chains realized there was money to be made in organics. Even now, with the subsequent growth in organic availability, when I travel to other towns, it is rare to find a store that can compete with our local co-op for quality and organic abundance.
