This is the story of Haley Mangone, a twelve-year-old girl who is on a mission to cure her mother of breast cancer. Soon after her mother Mila developed a tumor in her left breast Haley began researching alternative therapies and was surprised to learn just how important food, diet and lifestyle are in not only preventing cancer, but more importantly, in helping the body to heal from injury, illness and chronic disease. She learned about Ayurvedic herbs and medicines and that the right combination of food and spices can empower our cells and have tremendous influence on how our bodies heal and regenerate.

As Haley continued on her journey of discovery she was amazed to learn that water has memory and that our words and intentions have a profound effect upon the crystallization and healing properties of water. She learned that adult bodies are up to 65% water and understood how prayers, chants and mantras can produce powerful healing energies within the body. It made sense to her that if water could retain healing energies, then so can food. She thought about this for a while and began to research energized foods which led her to click on, a website featuring energized rice.

Haley was excited as she read about the benefits of consuming energized rice and felt this was a vital component for her mothers’ nutritional plan. Haley ordered some rice and began incorporating it into their family meals along with fresh organic superfoods, herbs and spices. It wasn’t long before everyone began feeling better and noticing they had more energy and vitality. Haley continues to discover new recipes and one of her mothers’ favorite nutrient-packed beverages is Golden Milk…

1 Tbs Coconut Oil
1 Tbs Rankema Turmeric
