When two-year-old dysfunctional ovarian cancer was diagnosed, the feisty Australian Septuctuian dr. Jan Hammill decided to beat the odds and to fight.
Since then, he has made him health, thanks to the world of ascension.
This is a new idea that your friend and educational partner Dr. Paul White recommended to improve your mobility and quality of life.
Ever since, however, Hammill had gone from someone who could hardly lift a broom or kneel to pick up an ascending dead lift (72.5 kilograms) with a weight lift and a woman of age.

Three self-styled indigenous "Iron Aunties", a retired nurse, exchanged university instructors twice a week at the Fortitude Barbell gymnasium in Brisbane, with Jonny B Bad's guarding watch and pursuing a strict diet.
"I am in a ketone diet and drink four bottles of water a day," Hammill said.
"I cut out all the sugar and eat very little bread, except the day I walk because there is a need for a carbo load.
"I mostly eat vegetarian proteins, and while I have bacon and eggs, I am so willing to be very sick," he thought.
You see a typical job with the Hammill 20 "pull out", 30 kg weights, then 10 pushbuttons and some presses.
He was never a coach junkie, and he was unknowing about his tough diets before diagnosing him.
"I was a very large, slowly growing ovarian cancer that took over most of my lower abdomen," Hammill said.
"Although I had an operation to remove the most, some are still in the blood vessel but could not do anything about it.
"Tamoxifen responds to breast cancer medications, and while the CA125 biomarker remains under the age of 30, I'm fine, we know it's not active."
Paul White said that a lot of research has shown that physical exercise was one of the key to helping people survive cancer.
"Resistance training [lifting weights] it seems to be coming from best practice, "White said.
"It is easy to do with older, vulnerable people, and something that everyone is used to receiving.
"Jan and a couple of older Indian ladies started twice a week, gradually increasing their mobility and movement.
White said his training partner was "insurmountable" even on his own train.
– Jan train until we throw it away.
"One of the biggest problems is to prevent him from raising things so he does not.
"Pull the extra kilo on the bar and think no one will notice it and pick it up.
"It only raises heavier and harder weights – I do not know where to stand.
According to Jonny Nelson, the gym owner, Jan's training goal was very simple.
"I wanted to be able to move better," Nelson said.
"Initially it was just about getting a mobile phone and teaching some functional moves to improve your daily lifestyle."
When he first came in, the owner said his newcomer was struggling to the bench and was very weak.
"The first goals are simple: we learn to teach you how to squat, learn how to move in the gym and use your body weight, and how to use silent bells and some light machines." He wants to go for things, "he chuckled.
"With the passage of time we introduced the performance-enhancing movements, and at the end of the first training session a deadlift race was held.
"I was very happy about her progress and training, and I knew she would be quite safe when she died.
"We did the dead lift and were nice, light and conservative – and he died about 70 pounds above Australia's record (in) age and weight category.
– He went a long way.
