Prevent or help fight cancer – some helpful information
Cancer has been increasing in the West since 1940.
Three major factors have drastically disrupted our environment over the same period — the addition of large quantities of highly refined sugar to our diet, changes in farming methods and exposure to a large number of chemical products that didn’t exist before the Second World War.
There is every reason to believe that these three phenomena play a major role in the spread of cancer.
Cancer feeds on sugar
The German biologist Otto Heinrich Warburg won a Nobel Prize for his discovery that the metabolism of malignant tumours is largely dependent on glucose consumption. Insulin production triggers inflammation.
Those who eat low-sugar Asian diets tend to have five to ten times fewer hormonally driven cancers than those with diets high in sugar and refined foods.
When cows eat grass, their meat and dairy products are perfectly balanced in omega-3 fatty acids (which help to reduce inflammation and cancer cell growth) and omega-6s. But since the 1950s, pastures have been replaced by battery farming; corn, soy and wheat have become the animals’ principal diet.
These food sources are rich in omega-6s and contain practically no omega-3s. Omega-6 fats and hormones given to stimulate milk production can trigger the growth of fatty cells and inflammation.
In the US, researchers at the Center for Disease Control have found the presence of 148 toxic chemicals in the blood and urine of Americans of all ages. In the past 30 years, the World Health Organisation’s International Agency for Research on Cancer has tested 900 chemicals in the environment and found only one to be categorically non-carcinogenic; 95 have been identified as ‘known carcinogens’, 307 are ‘possible’ and 497 remain ‘unclassified’. Many of these substances continue to be widely used, such as benzene, which is found in petrol, certain plastics, glues, lubricants, dyes and detergents.
A significant number of brain tumours are sensitive to xenoestrogens, such as the pesticide, atrazine
Whether you have a history of cancer in your family or are currently battling the disease, lifestyle factors, including your diet, can make a huge difference in helping you fight off cancer. Some foods actually increase your risk of cancer, while others support your body and strengthen your immune system.
We have for decades overlooked volumes of scientific evidence proving that diet and nutrition play a leading role in cancer development. Only in recent years have some mainstream physicians and health groups begun to recognize the importance of our lifestyle choices when it comes to preventing and reversing cancer. Even the WHO report recommends a diet rich in fruits, vegetables and whole grains as a powerful way to help fight this disease.
A plant-based diet means eating mostly foods that come from plants: vegetables, fruits, nuts, grains, and beans. You also need a good quality protein.
There are many natural supplements that can help you
We can screen and advise you what is best for you.
Screening of the patient helps is paramount in order to decide if and what type of therapy, is needed to improve the individual’s health and improve the therapeutic outcome. All screenings and treatments are non-invasive and easy to follow. Lifestyle modifications may be implemented.
Screening is used to look for health risks, how your major organs and body systems are functioning, your nutritional status, how your body is coping with your treatment, are there any contributing factors (toxins, heavy metals, parasites, etc.) to your problem and many more.
