Cancer (Johns Hopkins article)…AMAZING

Everyone MUST read this article. If you know someone in your family who has cancer, or if you want to prevent it from happening in the first place (Hopefully that would be all of you!)

“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. =C 2

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, gastrointestinal 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 soy 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 a void 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 becomes 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 bodies 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, un-forgiveness 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.

1. No plastic containers in micro.

2. No water bottles in freezer.

3. No plastic wrap in microwave.

Johns Hopkins has recently sent this out in its newsletters. This information is being circulated at Walter Reed Army Medical Center as well. Dioxin chemicals cause cancer, especially breast cancer. Dioxins are highly poisonous to the cells of our bodies. Don’t freeze your plastic bottles with water in them as this releases dioxins from the plastic. Recently, Dr. Edward Fujimoto, Wellness Program Manager at Cast le Hospital, was on a TV program to explain this health hazard. He talked about dioxins and how bad they are for us. He said that we should not be heating our food in the microwave using plastic containers. This especially applies to foods that contain fat. He said that the combination of fat, high heat, and plastics releases dioxin into the food and ultimately into the cells of the body. Instead, he recommends using glass, such as Corning Ware, Pyrex or ceramic containers for heating food You get the same results, only without the dioxin. So such things as TV dinners, instant ramen and soups, etc., should be removed from the container and heated in something else. Paper isn’t bad but you don’t know what is in the paper. It’s just safer to use tempered glass, Corning Ware, etc. He reminded us that a while ago some of the fast food restaurants moved away from the foam containers to paper. The dioxin problem is one of the reasons.

Also, he pointed out that plastic wrap, such as Saran, is just as dangerous when placed over foods to be cooked in the microwave. As the food is nuked, the high heat causes poisonous toxins to actually melt out of the plastic wrap and drip into the food. Cover food with a paper towel instead.

This is an article that should be sent to anyone important in your life.

How I cured my sinus infection

I haven’t been getting sick very often. Actually I found as soon as I started bragging to people I hadn’t been sick in a year, that’s when it hit me. I had a pretty bad cold, which turned into a sinus infection. I think I had one last year at about the same time.

netipot-lg

So I dislike antibiotics very much (More about antibiotics later). Now I know infections can be serious, and a visit to your doctor may be needed, but I got mine cleared up, and I was very surprised. I had never used a neti pot before, and really dislike the feeling of drowning, but decided to try it since I only hear amazing things. And it was totally worth it. But since I didn’t have time to use the neti pot at work, our specialist recommended I try a product called Xlear. This stuff is amazing. I also hate nasal spray, but if something works, it’s totally worth it. Now you can get neti pots at your local drug store, but more about the Xlear nose spray.

The only ingredients are purified water, xylitol, saline, and grapefruit seed extract (preservative). It isn’t addictive like your other drugstore brands. And I bet you’re wondering about the xylitol.

“Nasal Relief with Xylitol Nasal Spray

Our Nasal Spray is a combination of Xylitol and saline nasal spray that has shown to be effective in soothing and moisturizing the sinuses and nasal passages.

The Xlear Nasal Spray line contains Xylitol, purified water, salt, and grapefruit seed extract as a preservative. Using Xylitol nasal spray allows us to have a hyper-osmotic solution which helps pull moisture toward it. This action keeps the nasal passages and sinuses moist and clean for a much longer time than saline alone. Xylitol is the ingredient that sets our nasal spray apart from all of the other nasal sprays on the market.

The Xlear Nasal Spray line is all natural products, we do not use chemical antihistamines or decongestants that can leave your airways and sinuses dry. When your sinuses and airways are dry it leaves them vulnerable for increased infections.”

And also when it drips in the back of your throat, it just tastes like sugar 🙂

Here is their website. The xylitol they use is also used in the Spry gum, and there’s video’s to watch too.

I personally don’t use xylitol as a sweetener, but definitely love it in my gum instead of aspartame.

The Skinny On Obesity

I love videos and articles that are easy to understand. I don’t talk science jargon, (nor understand it). Watch this video, it is very educational! Go and watch the whole series on YouTube.

What Is A Holistic Nutritionist?

I guess I should have explained this in one of my very first posts, but here it is!

Here is a great blurb about what I will be doing

“In holistic nutrition it is believed that we need a certain balance of protein, vitamins, and other nutrients to help our bodies reach maximum energy levels and overall physical and emotional health. It is also believed that each individual is different and requires different amounts of these proteins, vitamins, and nutrients to make that particular individual healthy. Holistic nutritionists devise diets that match each individual’s health and nutritional needs.

It has been shown that making the right food choices can help to prevent many health problems including heart disease, diabetes, obesity, and cancer. If you have symptoms of any health problems or disease you should, of course, be under the care of a medical practitioner. If you don’t have health problems, you can slowly change your own diet to be most beneficial to your health. However, it is still a good idea to have the help of a holistic nutritionist to make the most of your efforts.”
