The Cancer Recovery Diet
Live better, live longer.
Cancer is not the leading cause of death in our population, but it is a major health concern. On a yearly basis, cancer kills fewer people than cardiovascular disease. Yet its death rate continues to climb as the medical community drops the ball.
Physicians and researchers scramble to find a cure for this devastating illness. However, preventative inflammatory factors are hardly ever taken into account. A patient may not seek treatment for their cancer-causing lifestyle until it is too late. Science still has yet to find a cure for any of the major cancers within the past century.
This medical failure is infuriating. A patient with cancer may be offered little hope of treatment – with treatment options that destroy immunity and the health of the body. Since the medical community fails to use their billions of dollars in funding to provide education for an anti- inflammatory, cancer-free lifestyle, cancer patients are often sent home to die.
A CAUSE AND A CURE
Healthy cells use fat, protein, carbohydrates, and sugar for 20 per cent of their energy; the rest of the aerobic process requires 80 per cent oxygen. Clearly, sugar is the least healthy option to feed a healthy cell. Excessive sugar in the diet can cause long-term damage to arteries, organs, and cells. Excessive sugar can lead to chronic disease, as well as cancer.
Cancer cells are not able to carry out the aerobic process of a healthy cell. Instead, cancer cells will use glycolysis, where glucose is fermented in an environment devoid of oxygen. This inefficient fermentation process separates cancer cells from healthy cells. Cancer cells can rapidly reproduce, but they are not able to effectively produce enough energy to sustain themselves.
Science supports the fact that cancer cells thrive on sugar. A cancer cell consumes sugar up to 17 times faster than a normal, healthy cell. Cancer cells are also likely to form tumours, covered in a protective coating to guard against natural breakdown by enzymes in the bloodstream.
A study published in the journal Cancer Epidemiology, Mile Markers, and Prevention proves this point. The controlled study examined the dietary habits of more than 1800 women in Mexico. Researchers discovered that women who received 57 percent or more of their total energy intake from refined carbohydrates had a 220 percent higher risk of breast cancer compared to women with balanced diets.
Foods high on the glycaemic index were shown to accelerate the growth of cancerous cells and tumours in the body. Researchers from the study believe that the correlation between refined carbohydrate consumption and breast cancer may be related to elevated insulin levels. A number of breast cancer tumours are supported by high insulin levels in the body; insulin may also promote the development of other types of cancer, including colon cancer.
CANCER RECOVERY THROUGH AN ANTI-INFLAMMATORY DIET
Diet is the foundation of optimal health. An anti-inflammatory diet is also the foundation of a cancer recovery plan. While cancer has no medical cure, an antioxidant-rich, anti-inflammatory diet low in sugar could offer a “cure” for this grave illness, in many cases.
Sugar is the enemy of cancer rehabilitation. Your recovery food plan starts by eating an anti-inflammatory diet rich in really healthy foods:
- STOP all starchy carbohydrates, processed foods, and dairy products. These inflammatory foods include cookies, pastries, breads, cereals, white rice, potatoes, and pasta. Enjoy other carb alternatives, like quinoa, millet, and buckwheat.
- Eat up to 14 small portions of fresh or frozen vegetables a day – 50 per cent raw, juiced and organic preferred.
- Eat 3-5 portions of beans, nuts, and seeds – soaked, mashed nuts and seeds.
- Eat 3-5 portions of dark-skinned fruits – as well as avocados.
- Enjoy healthy oils liberally – hemp, krill, and olive, etc.
- Drink 8 glasses of distilled or filtered water a day with a pinch of bicarbonate of soda – to improve oxygen transport.
- Take 3-5 teaspoons of sea or rock salt a day – in food or a little water.
An anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer diet can be supplemented with critical nutrients. Immune support to fight off aggressive cancer cells is critical with thiocyanate ions. Thiocyanate ions can clear infection that resides in unhealthy cells; infection has been linked to general cancer development.
Serrapeptase is one important enzyme to rely on during cancer rehabilitation. Serrapeptase is a naturally occurring anti- inflammatory enzyme that can offer long- term rehabilitation and pain relief.
As Serrapeptase dissolves dead or non-living tissue, such as tumours, the body’s own immune system then has the opportunity to fight.
One cancer patient used Serrapeptase to alleviate chemotherapy side effects and support full recovery: “After taking serrapeptase and along with following your advice, he basically suffered no side effects with the chemotherapy and has now made a full recovery. He had only been married 18 months at the time and chances of a family looked bleak, but 8 months after finishing treatment his wife fell pregnant, and they are now expecting their second child.”
Please don’t wait to change your diet until it is too late. The medical community may make recommendations to avoid important cancer risk factors, like smoking, but the root cause in an inflammatory Western diet is rarely examined.
According to a Cancer Research UK report, lifestyle factors are responsible for more than 40 per cent of cancers. Over 100,000 cancers diagnosed in Britain each year are caused by four major lifestyle issues: smoking, poor diet, alcohol, and being overweight. This number of cancer diagnoses may rise to 134,000 a year when 14 total lifestyle and environmental factors are taken into account.
Researchers agree: 40 per cent of cancers in women and 45 percent of cancers in men could easily be prevented with healthy lifestyle choices.
