Discover 6 Powerful Foods To Fight (and Prevent) Cancer!

Start your journey to wellness with these “insider secrets”. James Templeton, 30+ year stage IV melanoma cancer survivor and founder of the Templeton Wellness Foundation, shares his pick of the six most powerful cancer-fighting foods on the planet.

James Templeton's 30+ year Cancer Survival Story

If you or a loved one has cancer, there’s reason for hope:

More than three decades ago, when I was just 32 years old, I was diagnosed with stage 4 melanoma. Doctors offered me few treatment options. And even less chance for survival.

That was the beginning of the fight for my life. I pored over stacks of books and medical papers. I dove into alternative health approaches. I met with cancer survivors to hear their stories. I turned the world upside down looking for something, anything, that would give me an edge over cancer. And you know what? I found it.

The thing is though… none of what I found came from traditional medical books or doctors. Instead, my discoveries were rooted in natural approaches and therapies. I’ve since named these discoveries “The Universal Keys to Health”. And if you or a loved one are living with cancer, or you want to cancer-proof your life, then I want to share these “Universal Keys to Health” with you.

I’ve created the Templeton Wellness Foundation to bring you breakthrough strategies, tools, and inspiration to help you beat and prevent cancer. I’m living proof that cancer does not have to be a death sentence. And I’m honored to walk with you on your own healing journey.

Templeton Wellness Foundation is a Comprehensive Collection of My Own Research and Resources to SURVIVING Cancer.

I Used To Have Cancer

Chosen by Publishers Weekly as A Top Pick!

I Used to Have Cancer is James Templeton’s memoir—an inspiring look back at his unique journey in overcoming stage 4 melanoma. James takes you with him on a trip crisscrossing America, during which he shares the various natural approaches he followed to battle his cancer—from diet and supplements to meditation and lifestyle adjustments. As his journey continued, you will see first-hand how James’ definition of success changed from making money to seeing the next sunrise. And how he continues finding success by reaching out to others to share the lessons he has learned.

While this book largely focuses on the various methods James used to overcome his own cancer, it is also an inspiring story of not giving up when all other avenues of conventional medicine fail. It is about taking control of your life and finding a way back from the brink of death. It is about being able to tell your friends, “I used to have cancer.”
