April is Daffodil Month. During this month the Canadian Cancer Society will be campaigning with hundreds of volunteers to raise funds and awareness for the fight against cancer.
Cancer affects nearly everyone. If you are not afflicted by cancer you know someone who is or was. In the early 1900's 1 in 20 developed cancer. In the 1940's it was 1 in 16. Now it is 1 in 3. While there is debate about what can be done to prevent cancer we have compiled a list of strategies that we feel can benefit anyone in preventing cancer or helping them through if already diagnosed. Of course always consult with your medical doctor.
- Eat as much raw food as possible. Avoid frying, and charbroiling. Use antiangiogenic foods foods such as broccoli and curcumin.
- Eliminate processed food and reduce sugar and carb intake. Sugar feed cancer cells, particularly fructose.
- Use high quality proteins and fats such as organic, free-range eggs, avocados, coconut oils, and moderate amount of organic meats.
- Avoid GMO foods, particularly those that are modified with herbicideds such as glyphosate. Choose fresh, organic, locally grown food as much as possible.
- Nomalize your Omega 3 to Omega 6 ratio. Most diets are very high in Omega 6 and low in Omega 3. Don't use highly processed vegetable oils. A good source of Omega 3 is Krill Oil.
- Maximize your healthy gut flora with natural probiotics and fermented food.
- Exercise as it helps to lower insulin levels and therefore not feeding the cancer cells.
- Vitamin D blood serum levels should be monitored and Vitamin K2 and Calcium need to be used in conjunction with it.
- Get plenty of good sleep!
- Reduce exposure to toxins such as pesticides, herbicides, household chemical cleaners and toxic personal care items and cosmetics.
- Reduce exposure to radiation from all sources such as X-rays and medical scans, cell phones and towers, base stations and WIFI stations. Use available devices that help with protection as these items are a part of our daily lives.
- Manage stress or resolve emotional issues.
- Read and research. You are the best line of defense when you are filled with knowledge and know your options.
