I did a presentation at a cancer survivors’ support group meeting and it was a real eye-opener for me.
Because it made me realize how in the dark most people continue to be about cancer.
The survivors were sharing their tear-filled stories about their surgeries, chemotherapy experiences and radiation treatments.
And at the same time, there was a spread of cookies, Jell-O molds, chips, crackers and soda for “refreshments.”
I almost fell over. These people had no clue that they were putting out the welcome mat for cancer to return.
It’s time people knew the truth about cancer, and they finally see where we are grossly lacking in our focus as we share stories, run races and wear ribbons.
MAKING YOUR BODY AN ENVIRONMENT WHERE CANCER CANNOT SURVIVE IN THE FIRST PLACE!
Here’s what I mean:
Cancer’s preferred residence
Cancer doesn’t indiscriminately set up house in just any body…
Your body must provide the proper residence for it to survive and proliferate!
Here are the features that cancer seeks out when it’s looking for a place to live:
1- An acidic environment
Cancer LOVES an acidic environment, but it cannot survive in an alkaline environment.
So your body’s pH is a significant factor behind whether or not you will face cancer, and if you do, whether or not you will beat it.
By design our bodies are meant to have a slightly alkaline pH—about 7.3-7.4. Unfortunately many of us are dipping toward the acid range and that increases your susceptibility to cancer (as well as other chronic diseases).
Factors are all around you that increase the acidity in your body including:
- Processed and fast foods
- Medication residue
- Eating a lot of highly acid foods (meats, poultry, dairy, eggs and grains) without a counterbalance of alkaline foods (fresh vegetables and greens)
- Poor digestion
- Coffee, alcohol and soda
2- A diet high in sugar and refined carbs
Having a diet high in sugar and refined carbs (which turn to sugar upon digestion) is a double edged sword.
First of all, sugar feeds cancer, so the more of it you have in your system, the more you are nourishing cancer cells.
That’s why the spread at the cancer survivors’ meeting floored me!
Plus sugar depresses your immune system functioning, and your immune system protects you against cancer! So when your immune system is compromised by sugar, cancer has a better chance to thrive.
3- Lacking essential nutrients
Cancer is delighted when you are lacking nutrients, especially these three:
Vitamin C: Vitamin C is crucial to proper immune function, it helps kill cancer cells and it even makes chemotherapy more effective.
Vitamin D: Vitamin D has been shown to be an important player in protecting your body against several cancers.
Omega-3 essential fatty acids: The Omega-3 fat Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) has been shown in studies to help inhibit the growth of certain cancers.
4- Toxins in your body
Our bodies are inundated with toxins that are either carcinogenic in and of themselves, or pollute your body to the point where your cells and organs of detox can’t work properly.
Common sources of toxic exposure include:
- Heavy metals (mercury, aluminum, lead, cadmium and arsenic) in the environment, cigarette smoke, amalgam dental fillings and vaccines
- Contaminated water—our water supplies have been shown to contain fluoride, chlorine and even medications like pain killers and antidepressants
- Herbicides and pesticides on our lawns and in the crops grown for our consumption
- Nitrates and nitrites in processed meats
- Antibiotics and hormones from animals raised for our meat supply
Put up your “No Vacancy” sign!
To help keep cancer far away from you, you need to put up your “No Vacancy” sign!
Here are 6 very effective strategies to help make your body an undesirable home for cancer:
1) Eat nutritious alkaline foods & keep digestion efficient
This is extremely important—your body must have the nutrients it needs, fiber to help eliminate toxins, and a proper balance of alkaline foods to buffer the acidity in your body.
And the Great Taste No Pain health system can give you the guidance you need!
Great Taste No Pain teaches you how to combine foods together in your meals to support better digestion.
Not only will this help encourage regular bowel movements, but it can also help curb other digestive problems like acid reflux, gas and bloating.
Plus the dishes in the recipe section are so delicious, you will fall in love with healthy, nutritious foods and happily say goodbye to toxic, chemical-loaded packaged foods for good.
And note that if you have a gluten sensitivity, Great Taste No Gluten is for you instead!
2) Drink pure water
Water is essential for creating urine and keeping your bowels running smoothly so your body can eliminate toxins.
Eight glasses of filtered water a day should be your minimum.
3) Get enough vitamin C, vitamin D and Omega-3 essential fatty acids
Vitamin C is easy to get in your diet—tomatoes, bell peppers, citrus fruits, strawberries, kale, broccoli and Brussels sprouts are all great sources. (You can also ask your doctor about vitamin C IV therapy to supplement cancer treatment if you are undergoing it.)
Vitamin D and Omega-3 EFAs are trickier. Food sources of vitamin D are limited, and the average person doesn’t spend enough unprotected time in the sun for their body to consistently make vitamin D.
In addition, the richest food source of Omega-3 fats is fish, and that’s not something most people eat 7 days a week.
4) Get sweating
Your skin is a primary organ of detox and the more you sweat, the cleaner you are on the inside!
Regular exercise is key here (after getting your doctor’s OK).
Also, try infrared saunas as well.
5) Choose organic meats
The only way you can be assured of getting meat from animals that have not been treated with antibiotics and hormones, and that have not been fed GMO feed and/or grains that are laced with glyphosate is to choose organic.
And stay away from processed meats preserved with nitrates. If you love bacon, look for organic, nitrate-free varieties.
6) Support a healthy gut environment
Your immune system protects you against cancer, and most of that immune system resides in your gut. So truly, the gut is where it’s at in terms of cancer prevention!
Daily supplementation with a full-spectrum probiotic formula like Super Shield will help ensure that you have a health-supporting population of friendly bacteria that will encourage your immune system to stay sharp and strong.
Super Shield’s complete blend of 13 well-studied probiotic bacteria has been enhancing the health and lives of our clients for nearly a decade! Results speak for themselves, and our clients are very vocal about how they LOVE their Super Shield.
