Ananda Lewis’ Holistic Approach To Fighting Breast Cancer

The last time I saw Ananda Lewis, we were both working at BET. One day, she told me, in confidence, that she had just come from an amazing audition at MTV! Well, apparently she got the job…and her career continued to soar. Next was The Ananda Lewis Show. The Insider. While You Were Out, and a few others television shows.

Well, now she’s on a different journey. She was hit with the difficult news that she has breast cancer in 2019. By the time she was diagnosed, it had spread to her lymph nodes. She pleads that all women get mammograms early so they don’t have to go through what she’s going through.


Ananda took it upon herself to do massive research about the disease and how to eradicate it from her body. While she has decided to accept some of the traditional medicine, her strategy is mostly an extremely extensive holistic approach. Extensive to the tune of 6 – 7 hours per day and it appears to be working. Thankfully, the tumor is shrinking.

She shared so much of her medical journey with us like how to make sure your body is operating as it should. Thank you Ananda Lewis! I believe you can now add “health advisor” to your long list of accomplishments.
