Diet And Lifestyle Changes You Can Make To Prevent Or Cure Cancer - Articles Surfing
I had uterine cancer last summer. Luckily it was Stage 1A and surgery took care of everything. I didn*t need chemo or radiation. I tell people I had cancer for two weeks, because by the time they found it, I had surgery and waited the 6 days it took for the *all clear* pathology results to come back * only 2 weeks had passed!
It was just kind of a blip in my summer. Part of the reason it was only that was I am fit and in excellent health and do a lot of things right. My cancer usually happens to people who are obese (I*m not even close) or diabetic (not that either). The 3rd cause is making too much estrogen.
The purpose of this article is to share a few *cancer prevention* tips I*ve learned, because as easy as I had it, I*m not planning on getting it again!
I*ve always taken a ton of vitamins. A lot, I*ve recently discovered, are recommended by cancer researchers to prevent cancer or help fight it if you have cancer. Take this combination daily:
Beta-Carotene * 25,000 iu
Folic Acid * 400 mcg
Selenium * 200 mcg
Vitamin C * 3000 mg (divided)
Vitamin E * 400 iu (slows tumor growth and the spread of malignancies)
1 B Complex
Calcium * 1500 (divided)
NAC * 600 mg
Another combination that's a little harder is (also daily):
Vitamin C - between 3000 mg to 20,000 mg (divided)
B-50 - with each meal
Chlorophyll - these greens inhibit cell mutations
Digestive enzyme tablets - 2 per meal. They break food down to get the nourishment out.
B12 - treatments or 1000 micrgrams
vitamin E - work up to 1000 iu
Selenium - 300 mcg
Zinc - 50 mg
Beta Carotene - 25,000 iu every other day, up to 100,000 if you have cancer.
I do the first one, since I had such a light case and am healthy, but I would try the second one if I needed too. The vitamin C amounts in the second combination sound scary, but your body can handle it. For the week prior to my surgery and for the 4 weeks after that I wasn't suppose to life anything I took 8000 mg every day. I healed much faster than I'd been told to expect.
If you are doing radiation take 3-5 tablets of Kelp every day
If chemo - vitamin E helps a lot
You should also cut out red meat and trans fats and way back on sugar, salt, soda, alcohol, fat and artificial sweeteners. Fill up on fruits, vegetables, beans and especially:
tomatoes, grapes, spinach, broccoli, potatoes, cauliflower, kale, Chinese mushrooms, onion (best raw), citrus fruits, carrots, cabbage and green beans.
Drink lots of green tea, carrot juice (it has anti cancer carotenes) and green juice.
Eat 100% whole-wheat pasta, whole grain breads and brown rice. Have a half teaspoon of rosemary per day and use olive oil.
Do something every day to de-stress and think happy, thankful and positive thoughts. Meditate or use guided imagery to picture a healthy body. Cooking healthy meals at home and sharing them with family while unwinding at the end of each day will also add much to a healthy lifestyle.
