Templeton Wellness Foundation is a Comprehensive Collection of My Own Research and Resources to Surviving Cancer Through Holistic and Alternative Medicine.

“You have cancer…” are three of the most terrifying words anyone can hear.

And that’s exactly what my doctor told me over 38 years ago. Yet here I stand today, a living testament to the fact that a cancer diagnosis does NOT have to be a death sentence.

I had the honor of sharing my journey as a Stage 4 Melanoma Cancer Survivor at the 2023 Healing Strong Conference in Houston, Texas. My experiences, discoveries, and hard-won knowledge have led me to a personal mission: to show those battling this dreadful disease what I learned — that there is more than one path to healing.

A cancer diagnosis doesn’t have to mark the end. I am living proof of that. If you or someone you know is facing this battle, I hope that you are inspired by my journey and that you share this video with others.

Meet the Founder James Templeton

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.

“James Templeton is the real deal.  Learn from his miracle mindset and fight for your life.”
