We all know that cancer is a serious matter. Even though we are probably close to discovering a total cure, we are not there yet.
Most cancers form because of some insults to our DNA that cause mutations. These mutations cause our cells to lose the capacity to replicate in a controlled manner. The consequence is uncontrolled cellular division and therefore uncontrolled tissue growth. Without proper supplementation, nutritional support and medical care, the system usually shuts down.
Four Tips To Reduce Your Risk
What can we do to prevent this? First minimize exposure to carcinogens. Cigarette smoke, chemical fumes and asbestos cause lung cancer. Excessive sun exposure causes skin cancers. Processed foods, especially those with trans fats, cause colon cancer.
Secondly, supplement with antioxidants. They neutralize free radicals that cause mutations. Examples are green tea extract, grape seed extract, blue berry extract, and resveratrol. You can also get a healthy dose of antioxidants though your diet by consuming green leafy vegetables, broccoli, sprouts, parsley, cilantro, and kale. Make sure these are organic when you buy them. Juicing these vegetables provides a concentrated dose of cancer-preventing antioxidants.
Fibre and probiotics protect us from developing colon cancer and many other diseases of the gastrointestinal tract.
Prophylactic tests for a number of cancers including colon, prostate, breast, lung and ovarian cancers, when done at a proper time, can catch cancers at very early stages when surgery may be very effective with their complete removal.
If You Are Diagnosed With Cancer
Make sure you are getting proper nutrition when being medically treated. Probiotics and nutritionally rich foods at this time are very important. If you feel nauseous, try medical marijuana. It is the best medicine for nausea and vomiting caused by chemotherapy.
Finally, take heed when proposed with chemotherapy. Consult with your naturopath (ND) and not just your Medical Doctor. Recent evidence shows it may cause more cancers in the long run. It also destroys our bodies while destroying the disease.
If you follow these steps you will drastically reduce the chances of getting cancer and also dramatically improve your chance of survival if you were already diagnosed.
