In 1976, Stamatisu Moraitis was diagnosed with lung cancer, and he accepted the fact that was to die. He was told by nine different doctors who have only six months and have to start chemotherapy immediately. He refused to undergo this treatment and decided to return to his place of birth Ikaria in Greece.
At first, he began to suffer from depression and would stay I lie all day and his mother and his wife would take care of him. But then a miracle happened. One day, his will to live surprisingly returned, even though reconciles was going to die. He began to live his life with vigor. Every Sunday morning, he would climb the hill to the church, where his grandfather worked as a priest. He also received much attention from friends who had heard that has returned, and began to visit. much of his time is spent talking with them and drink locally produced wine, two bottles of each day. He was doing this because I wanted to at least die happy.
In the following months, she began to feel better and stronger. He decided to plant a garden and spend the rest of their days enjoying it. I did not expect to see the fruit, but at least enjoy the sea in the sun for fresh air.
After six months, Moraitis was still alive. He was reaping the fruits of the orchard, who was cleaning the vineyard, walking on the coast, and even began to work in his vineyard. He was waking up early in the morning, so it would be exposed to the sun all day, working and enjoying. He feeds on the fruits of the orchard planted. At night, she went to the local restaurant and play dominoes with friends for some time.
Even after a few years, he was still alive, and what is even more important, he felt healthy. He even extended his house and added a few more rooms in which they began producing their own wine, 1,500 liters of it.
30 years later, he turned 97 he went to the doctor’s office for examination and to see what happened. Doctors have told him he had only six months left everyone had died. He survived them all, simply by not going to chemotherapy that was supposed to prolong his life for a bit. The only thing he did was returning back home in his birthplace. MORAITIS died when he was 102, healthy and happy. The reason for his death was just old age, cancer, according to the results of examinations, had disappeared.
The most important thing to do when faced with a disease is to keep the faith and will not take the drugs. Another important thing is turning toward nature.

The secret of their healthy life is the fact they do not rush through life. They eat and drink healthy ingredients, homemade products and walk every day, up to 20 kilometers.
