CANCER

 
   1. Every person has cancer cells in the body. These cancer cells do not show up in the
       standard tests until they have multiplied to a few billion.  When doctors tell cancer patients
       that there are no more cancer cells in their bodies after treatment, it just means the tests
      are unable to detect the cancer cells because they have not reached the detectable size.
 
   2. Cancer cells occur between 6 to more than 10 times in a person's lifetime.
 
   3. When the person's immune system is strong the cancer cells will be destroyed and
       prevented from multiplying and forming tumors.
 
   4. When a person has cancer it indicates the person has multiple nutritional deficiencies.
       These could be due to genetic, environmental,  food and lifestyle factors.
 
   5. To overcome the multiple nutritional deficiencies, changing diet and including supplements
       will strengthen the immune system.
 
   6. Chemotherapy involves poisoning the rapidly-growing cancer cells and also destroys
       rapidly-growing healthy cells in the bone marrow, gastro-intestinal tract etc, and can cause
      organ damage, like liver, kidneys, heart, lungs etc.
 
   7. Radiation while destroying cancer cells also burns, scars and damages healthy cells, tissues
       and organs.
 
   8. Initial treatment with chemotherapy and radiation will often reduce tumor size. However
       prolonged use of chemotherapy and radiation do not result in more tumor destruction.
 
   9. When the body has too much toxic burden from chemotherapy and radiation the immune
       system is either compromised or destroyed, hence the person can succumb to various kinds
       of infections and complications.
 
   10. Chemotherapy and radiation can cause cancer cells to mutate and become resistant and
         difficult to destroy. Surgery can also cause cancer cells to spread to other sites.
 
   11. An effective way to battle cancer is to starve the cancer cells by not feeding it with the foods
         it needs to multiply.
 
 
   CANCER CELLS FEED ON:
 
   a. Sugar is a cancer-feeder. By cutting off sugar it cuts off one important food supply to the
       cancer cells. Sugar substitutes like NutraSweet, Equal, Spoonful, etc are made with
       Aspartame and it is harmful. A better natural substitute would be Manuka honey or molasses
       but only in very  small amounts.  Table salt has a chemical added to make it white in color.     
       Better alternative is Bragg's aminos or sea salt.
 
   b. Milk causes the body to produce mucus, especially in the gastro-intestinal tract. Cancer
       feeds on mucus. By cutting off milk and substituting with unsweetened soya milk cancer cells
       are being starved.
 
   c. Cancer cells thrive in an acid environment. A meat-based diet is acidic and it is best to eat
       fish, and a little chicken rather than beef or pork.  Meat also contains livestock antibiotics,
       growth hormones and parasites, which are all harmful, especially to people with cancer.
 
   d. A diet made of 80% fresh vegetables and juice, whole grains, seeds, nuts and a little fruits
       help put the body into an alkaline environment. About 20% can be from cooked food  
       including beans. Fresh vegetable juices provide live enzymes that are easily absorbed
       and reach  down to cellular levels within 15 minutes to nourish and enhance growth
      of healthy cells.  To obtain live enzymes for building healthy cells try and drink fresh
      vegetable juice (most vegetables including bean sprouts) and eat some raw vegetables 2 or
      3 times a day. Enzymes are destroyed at temperatures of 104 degrees F (40 degrees C).
 
   e. Avoid coffee, tea, and chocolate, which have high caffeine.  Green tea is a better
       alternative   and has cancer-fighting properties.  Water - best to drink purified water, or
       filtered, to avoid known toxins and heavy metals in tap water. Distilled water is acidic, avoid
       it.
 
12. Meat protein is difficult to digest and requires a lot of digestive  enzymes. Undigested meat
       remaining in the intestines become putrefied and leads to more toxic buildup.
 
13. Cancer cell walls have a tough protein covering. By refraining from or eating less meat it
       frees more enzymes to attack the protein walls of cancer cells and allows the body's killer
       cells to destroy the cancer cells.
 
14. Some supplements build up the immune system (IP6,   Flor-ssence,Essiac, anti-oxidants,
       vitamins, minerals, EFAs etc.) to enable the body's own killer cells to destroy cancer cells.
      Other supplements like vitamin E are known to cause apoptosis, or programmed cell death,
      the body's normal method of disposing of damaged, unwanted, or unneeded cells.
 
15. Cancer is a disease of the mind, body, and spirit. A proactive and positive spirit will help
      the cancer warrior be a survivor.  Anger,  unforgiveness and bitterness put the body into a
      stressful and acidic environment. Learn to have a loving and forgiving spirit.  Learn to relax
      and enjoy life.
 
16. Cancer cells cannot thrive in an oxygenated environment.  Exercising daily, and deep
       breathing help to get more oxygen down to the cellular level. Oxygen therapy is another
       means employed to destroy cancer cells.
