My father, Robert Earl Madget, died 31 years ago today. He was 59. He was a good man, a successful businessman, someone I admired and aspired to be like. He was diagnosed with late-stage esophageal cancer in 1979 and decided against traditional treatments and instead chose to fight with macrobiotics. Macrobiotics is based on ancient Chinese Medicine, but it was relatively unknown and unpracticed in the United States at that time. Macrobiotics is essentially an anti-inflammatory diet, based on whole grains and whole foods. It is today, much more widely accepted. This is a link:
My point today is to lift up his memory and to say thank you to my Dad. It was because of him that I have always been open to alternative, holistic medicine.
