You can Reduce Your Risk of Cancer or
Improve Your chances of Recovery
Anyone who has ever had cancer or had a loved one with cancer, knows the feelings of fear, anxiety, worry and often hopelessness that this very serious illness can bring. Cancer is the second leading cause of death in civilized nations. Conventional treatments such as chemotherapy, radiation and surgery are often dangerous. Cancer causes intense emotional distress in everyone involved. As long as the body has life, there is hope.
If you have cancer this information is not adequate to develop an effective natural program to help with you. It will give you some ideas about options you may not be familiar with. I strongly encourage you to seek professional help when dealing with cancer. You need competent health care professionals helping you with your program and monitoring your progress, but you should do some study on your own and learn about things you can do for yourself.
What is Cancer?
Cancer is a disease involving cells that have undergone a genetic mutation so they are no longer responsive to messages from the body that regulate cell metabolism and growth. These mutations are believed to be due to free radical damage and cause the cancer cells to develop anaerobic metabolism. Normal cells have an aerobic metabolism, which means they produce energy by means of oxygen and oxidation. Anaerobic cells produce energy without oxygen via a process of fermentation.
if the body is highly oxygenated, the environment for cancer does not exist. In 1931, Dr. Otto Warburg won a Nobel Prize for proving that whenever any cell is denied 60% of its oxygen requirements, it can become cancerous. Conditions which deprive cells of oxygen (such as chronic inflammation, build-up of toxins or problems with red blood cells or circulation) increase the risk of cancer. An overly acidic environment in the body is a breeding ground for cancer.
Cancer cells are forming in the body on a regular basis. likely, you have a few inside you right now. The immune system normally recognizes these deviant cells and destroys them.
First, your body has to be toxic and have a low oxygen environment that may encourage the development of anaerobic cancer cells and second, your immune system may be weakened so it is not able to recognize and destroy these cells.
While killing cancer cells (the goal of conventional cancer therapy) is an important part of treating cancer, it does not fix the underlying problems that created the cancer. An effective protocol for cancer should do more than just destroy cancer cells. It should try to restore a normal, healthy environment in the body and rebuild the immune system.
Even if one chooses to use orthodox therapies to destroy the cancer cells, you would be wise to consider doing natural therapy to restore the body's state of health and prevent the cancer from reoccurring.
Natural Cancer Prevention and Therapy
Increase Oxygen Levels
Cancer cells are anaerobic, which means they live and thrive in a low oxygen environment. They are able to get their energy by metabolizing nutrients, notably sugars and carbohydrates, without oxygen in a fermentative process. Cancer cells cannot survive in a high oxygen environment, by keeping the body well oxygenated inhibits cancer. Do this by getting plenty of fresh air and exercise. Breathe deeply. If you smoke, quit.
here are several supplements that may enhance oxygenation in the body. Lung Support helps with oxygen delivery and uptake and is very useful for anyone with respiratory weakness. Cordyceps strengthens the lungs and enhances oxygen transport and helps the immune system.
Liquid chlorophyll is great way to enhance oxygen transport. It may prevent clumping of red blood cells and may help red blood cells carry more oxygen to the tissues. Research has shown that it can reduce the risk of cancer.
In order to have optimal health, the body must maintain a proper internal pH. Cancer cells prefer an acid pH environment. Their fermentative metabolism releases large amounts of lactic acid that inhibit transportation of oxygen to neighboring cells. A build-up of acid waste inhibits toxins from being released by cells.
The best way to counteract this acidic environment is to eat large quantities of fresh, organic, fruits and vegetables every day. This is recognized as one of the best ways of decreasing your risk of cancer and it benefit in helping people recover from cancer. Fresh fruits and vegetables help alkalize the body and strengthen immunity, aids detoxification and provide antioxidants.
Besides eating fresh fruits and vegetables, there are supplements that may help alkalize the body. Ulimate Green Zone is a whole food supplement that alkalizes the environment, aids in detoxification and builds the immune system that may help it recognize and destroy cancer cells.
Digestive enzymes are very important to helping balance pH. Food Enzymes and PDA may be good choices for people with cancer. A lack of hydrochloric acid leads to excess lactic acid in the body, which sets the stage for cancer. They are taken with meals to help the body metabolize food correctly to avoid a build-up of acid waste and toxins. They are taken between meals to help rid the body of excess proteins that may be causing acid in the blood.
Strengthen the Immune System
The body normally and regularly produces cancer cells due to free radical damage, environmental factors or other causes. A healthy immune system recognizes and destroys these defective cells. When the immune system is unable to recognize these deviant cells or is too weak to destroy them, the disease we call cancer develops.
There are many reasons why the immune system becomes weakened. Poor nutritional intake is a major factor. The loss or destruction of friendly bacteria in the intestinal tract is another. Excessive sugar consumption supplies cancer cells with the energy they need to proliferate quickly, while contributing to chronic inflammation that stresses the immune system.
Improving nutritional intake may help by eating 7-9 servings of fruits and vegetables daily, may help the immune system. Eliminating chemically processed foods, reducing sugar, white flour and other simple carbohydrates will help.
Supplements that may help to rebuild a weakened immune system include the Trigger Immune. This formula may enhances vital energy and immune function, increasing white blood cell production and platelet count. It is very helpful in recovering from chemotherapy and can be taken during chemotherapy to strengthen the system to resist toxic effects from chemo.
Immune Stimulator may boost the immune system to fight cancer. It may enhances natural killer cells (lymphocytes), which kill cancer cells, increases T-cell production and antibody production. An important benefit of Immune Stimulator may be its ability to enhance cellular communication, which helps the immune system identify and target cells it needs to destroy.
Una de Gato Combination strengthens a weakened immune system. The principle ingredient, Una de Gato, has been used in South America for cancer treatment and contains compounds that inhibit tumor growth.
We are bombarded with toxins, heavy metals, chlorine and thousands of chemicals that we breathe in, consume in our diet or absorb through our skin. These all cause free radicals in the body and contribute for the environment of cancer.
Avoiding these toxins is part of both cancer prevention and holistic cancer therapy. Avoid or eliminate refined and processed foods (especially foods raised with pesticides, antibiotics or steroids), toxic cleaning products (such as laundry detergents, skin care items, fluoridated toothpaste, etc.) and chlorinated and fluoridated water. Avoid microwaved or irradiated food and protect yourself from electrical equipment (as electromagnetic pollution may be a major causal factor in cancer).
It is helpful to assist the body in detoxifying from these substances.
E-Tea is a famous anticancer formula that helps the body to eliminate toxins. It improves lymphatic drainage and stimulates the immune system.
All Cell Detox is a general cleansing formula that is based on a Native American medicine man's cancer remedy. It reduces inflammation, supports the liver and digestive system and helps neutralize acid.
Blood Stimulator nourishes the blood and helps increase its volume. It may help to rebuild after chemotherapy.
Our need for oxygen exceeds the demand for any nutrient, even water, because we need oxygen for normal energy production in the cell. Oxygen can produce free radicals that can damage normal cells and cause cancer. Antioxidant nutrients protect the body from free radical damage, reducing cancer risk. Antioxidants may be used in a treatment program for cancer because they may help protect the body from harmful side effects of radiation and chemotherapy.
Some antioxidants are:
Kill Cancer Cells
For those diagnosed with cancer, it is important to kill the cancerous cells. The problem is that chemotherapy and radiation cause damage to healthy cells. Killing cancer cells produces toxins that the body must eliminate.
There are some natural compounds which can help kill cancer cells.
Paw Paw Cell Reg is a standardized extract of acetogenins from the Paw Paw plant. These compounds have been shown in scientific research to cause apoptosis (preprogrammed cell death) in cancer cells by inhibiting their energy production.
Paw Paw Cell Reg is not appropriate for all cancers and should be used as part of a comprehensive cancer program. Even if one chooses to use chemotherapy drugs, Paw Paw may still be beneficial. It has been shown to reduce chemotherapy drug resistance. Paw Paw doesn't have the side effects of hair loss, weight loss, extreme nausea and compromised immunity. It may cause nausea in larger doses and Paw Paw is not recommended as a supplement for preventing cancer. It is only appropriate when a person has cancer.
High Potency Protease. It breaks down the protein coat on cancer cells and helps prevent cancer cells that are breaking down from creating a toxic load on nearby healthy cells. It is taken between meals for this purpose
Increase Joy and Pleasure
One German study shows a commonality that all cancer patients experienced a trauma and an unresolved psychological issue shortly before the cancer developed. Stress is a big component of cancer because psychological stress creates physical stress that dramatically reduces immune function.
Find things that make you laugh. Spend time with family, friends or pets. Take a walk in the fresh air and sunshine. Surround yourself with pleasing colors, smells and sounds. Listen to your favorite music; get up and dance. Listen to calming, meditative music. Take a hot bath in Epsom salts and Lavender oil. Treat yourself to a massage, take a mini-vacation or go to a spa for the day.
