Cancer – the “Healthy Cell” Solution
Part 2. Healthy Cells – Introduction to the 6 Critical Body Preparation Activities
To lay the foundation to achieve “Healthy Cells” and fully prepare the body to be able to get maximum benefits from the 4 “Healthy Cell” factors there are 6 critical things we must do first.
This is very IMPORTANT to achieve the best results.
The 6 critical Body Preparation Activities:
Assess your Lifestyle Choices
Cleansing and detoxifying the body
Boosting the Immune System
Managing physical and emotional Stress
Focusing on Mind, Heart and Attitude
Migrate to a Natural Healthy Nutritious Diet (alkaline)
Introduction to the Planning Phase of the 6 critical Body Preparation Activities
But first lets look at the planning phase of the implementation of the 6 critical Body Preparation Activities. To be successful there are 2 very important things that you must be aware of.
You or your Disease / Cancer Support Team MUST have access to honest, reliable, scientifically proven and tested information and have the knowledge and awareness of all the available options to you to enable you to prevent or heal any disease, especially cancer, where there is so much “fake” information on the Internet.
In addition You or your Disease / Cancer Support Team MUST have access to the BEST possible organic fruit, vegetables and herbs but more importantly to the BEST possible supplements, super-foods and natural toxin-free medicine.
Lets start by looking at these 2 critical success factors.
- Fake information versus honest reliable Information about Diseases and Cancer
- Best effective, scientifically proven Supplements and Super-foods with a track record
Fake Information versus Honest, Reliable Information about Diseases and Cancer
The Internet is an amazing source of information, BUT there is so much “fake” and politically influenced information, even blatant lies, so it is very difficult to know what is true and what is false.
This is especially true in the natural alternative health and wellness space as it competes with the powerful, profit driven Pharmaceutical Companies and the conventional health industry and its toxic expensive patented drug medication.
Effective Healing MUST Identify and Address the CAUSE and NOT the SYMPTOM
Natural, alternative health provides far more effective non-toxic or invasive therapies, treatments and medication (organic fruit, veg, supplements, super-foods and herbs) that address the CAUSE of the disease and not the SYMPTOM as is the case with conventional medicine. For this reason “alternative” health is continually “rubbished” by the Pharmaceutical companies and the conventional medical industry for obvious competitive reasons.
This is no wonder as “BigPharma” have the most to lose and CANNOT allow natural health to become main stream and reduce their exorbitant profits, no matter how effective the natural alternative health solutions are.
Dr. Robert Atkins put it best when he said, “There is not one, but many cures for cancer available. But they are all being systematically suppressed by the American Cancer Society, the National Cancer Institute and the major oncology centers. They have too much of an interest in the status quo.”
My mission as a cancer survivor, author, blogger, cancer buddy, cancer coach and health researcher with over 15 years experience in the alternative health and cancer industry; is to help people all over the world, especially people with cancer, to achieve “ultimate health and wellness”. It is my goal to achieve my mission by providing honest, reliable and proven knowledge, resources and the awareness of all of the best treatment and therapy options, as well as the best available natural toxin-free supplements, super-foods and natural medication, which will enable prevention and healing of most degenerative diseases, especially cancer.
Over the last 15 years as a health researcher and more recently managing my own cancer healing program, I have concentrated my research on what CAUSES disease, especially cancer and specifically focused on all aspects of both conventional and alternative cancer treatments and therapy options, so that I can provide the best options and requirements to establish comprehensive cancer healing programs.
Honest Information that can be Trusted
My focus as a professional researcher has been on identifying and providing myself, my family and friends as well as all of my readers and followers, the VERY best honest information and references to the most honest, reliable and proven websites. I will be sharing these with you in subsequent posts.
- Best Effective, Scientifically Proven Products with a Genuine Track Record
As part of my research I have also searched the globe for the best scientifically proven natural toxin-free product manufacturers and suppliers of pure products with a genuine proven track record and audited reviews. I have identified and selected the very best available products that you can trust, specifically for myself, (a cancer survivor), my family, friends, viewers, Facebook friends and Pinterest and Instagram followers.
Therefore I do recommend certain products that I believe are the very best natural toxic free products available world-wide, most of which I use myself.
IMPORTANT DISCLOSURE: I want you to know that I am so impressed with some of these products that I have become an affiliate partner of some of the suppliers. This means I can arrange better prices for you, but I will also get a small commission from any sales which enables me to continue doing comprehensive research and making that available to my readers FREE of charge.
Obviously you can source your products anywhere you like, but if you are looking for the very best to sustain your health and wellness I have made it easy for you to purchase these online by providing links to each product with videos and tons of free information about each product from the best sources, all in this one series of posts.
Lets get Back to our Body Preparation Activities which I will start in this post and continue in subsequent posts. Please remember these activities are very important for you to prepare your body for the 4 “Healthy Cell” factors that are critical to achieving “ultimate health and wellness”.
The 6 critical Body Preparation Activities:
- Assess your Lifestyle Choices
- Cleansing and detoxifying the body
- Boosting the Immune System
- Managing physical and emotional Stress
- Focusing on Mind, Heart and Attitude
- Migrate to a Natural Healthy Nutritious Diet (alkaline)
Assess your Lifestyle Choices
Lets start with Your Lifestyle Choices which form the “blue-print” of your health and wellness, therefore it is very important to make a thorough assessment of your choices to see if you can make any improvements that will assist you to live a happy, healthy, active and long life.
In this post I am going to cover “22 Lifestyle Choices” which make up most of the choices that have a direct effect on your health and wellness. This will enable you to do your own assessment of how each choice affects your lifestyle and more specifically the effect on your long term “Health and Wellness”.
During your assessment you must remember that all modern degenerative diseases including cancer are caused by acidic toxic chemicals or STRESS, so all related choices should be your high priority, like eliminating stress, sugar, soft drinks, energy drinks, dairy and fast foods which are the biggest killers.
The information on each of the choices are mainly aimed at Cancer patients and include things that you SHOULD consider eliminating and things that you SHOULD incorporate. Obviously you cant change all these things over night, but you need to consider incorporating them in moderation over a few months. Some of the choices like Diet and exercise will also be covered in detail in other posts but it is good to be introduced to them here.
Modern Lifestyle Choices
“The way we live influences the way we die!”
All cancers are caused by the Lifestyle we choose to live so the choices we make are critical as they actually create our life’s “blue print”.
It’s an undeniable fact that in this modern era every one of us is exposed to a toxic and acidic onslaught every moment of our lives.
Most of us are exposed to toxic air and water pollution, fast fried fatty foods, processed foods, carcinogenic groceries and household products, sugar filled foods and drinks, pesticide poisoned soil, fruit and vegetables; GMO grains and oils, alcohol, smoking, lack of exercise, prescription and recreational drugs; just to name the main culprits.
Preventable Premature Deaths
It’s a proven fact that eight out of every ten adults will die prematurely from a serious chronic lifestyle degenerative disease.
ARE YOU ONE OF THEM ?
Very few of these degenerative lifestyle diseases diseases were common just a hundred years ago and are unquestionably caused by our toxic chemical modern lifestyles.
The variety of aches, pains, disease and suffering have reached epidemic proportions with just about everyone suffering from something, however most of these situations are preventable if we just “take control of our own health” and become aware of what is causing these situations.
Sickness and disease abound with cancer, heart disease and obesity leading the pack and as we all know most of these diseases cause us and our families misery, pain, financial hardships and suffering and in many cases “death”, but sadly most of these deaths could have been prevented.
My mission is to help as many people as possible to understand this and to make people aware of the many non-toxic and successful alternative options to the drug dominated conventional medicine and treatments, especially toxic chemotherapy.
Did You Know ?
- That in the UK somebody dies unnecessarily from a heart disease every three minutes and in the US, 1 adult in every 4 suffers from a heart disease ?
- That in the US 1 person dies from cancer every minute (1,500 per day) ?
- That in the US 1 person dies from obesity every 2 minutes – all totally preventable.
Add this to the diabetes, Alzheimer’s and other disease death statistics then you realize just how serious the situation is with about 5 people dying every 3 minutes from bad lifestyle choices.
This page introduces you to 22 of the “Lifestyle Choices” that are responsible for your health and wellness “blue print”.
Here is the list of the choices which is followed by a summary of each of the choices. Each choice has a link to additional information if you require that to assist in your decisions. I suggest you go through each of these lifestyle choices carefully and fully understand the effect they have on your health and wellness and take the necessary action.
- Your Own Diet
- Processed Foods
- Fast Foods
- Refined Carbohydrates
- Sugar and Artificial Sweeteners
- Soda / Soft / Cold drinks and Energy drinks
- Fresh Produce Pollution
- Nutritional Supplements
- Processed Dairy Products
- Cosmetics and Personal Care
- Sunscreen and Tanning
- Exercise and Sunshine
- Prescription and Illegal Drugs
- Breathing and Meditation
- Meaningful Work,Hobbies and Relaxation
Assessment Information of Lifestyle Choices
I have identified 22 Lifestyle Choices which are generally responsible for the state of our health and wellbeing for you to look at to assist you to assess your situation and to see how you compare.
If you have any form of cancer it becomes more important for you to fully understand the seriousness of the assessment of your “Lifestyle Choices”. How you decide what you are going to change over the next few months may be a matter of life and death.
It’s YOUR CHOICE and NOW you have the unique opportunity to take control of your own health and wellness destiny by doing an assessment of this summary list of the “Lifestyle Choices”.
- Nutrition – This is the most critical choice you have to make – You need to focus on your nutrition needs and understand what you should be eating to provide your body with the essential alkaline nutrients it requires to enable you to fight cancer and to achieve optimum disease free, health and ultimate well-being.
- Your Own Diet. Compare what you should be eating from point no: 1 above with what you are eating and make the necessary changes or consult a nutritionist who focuses on Alkaline Diets. Many of the following points will assist you to know what to eliminate, however I also have a section called “NOT Allowed” that you can link to which is critical for ALL cancer patients.
- Processed Foods. Unfortunately virtually all processed foods are packed with acidic chemical additives, including preservatives, sweeteners, colourants and enhancers. The worst being poisonous ingredients, like Monosodium Glutamate (MSG), Aspartame and Nitrosamines which you must try to avoid completely.
- Fast Foods. It is a proven fact that fatty, fried foods, trans fats, hydrolysed fats and hydrogenated oils are causing chronic diseases like cancer and the obesity epidemic.
- Refined Carbohydrates. You must try to limit sugar, flour, cakes, cookies, biscuits, white breads and sweets as these do cause acidic waste build up if not eliminated from your body.
- Sugar and Artificial Sweeteners. If you have cancer – You MUST eliminate all forms of sugar and sweeteners. This is the deadly duo that are part of the deadly toxins responsible for most chronic diseases, and deaths, especially Cancer.
- Soft / Cold Drinks. Beware !! These are liquid poison, this is where sugar and artificial sweeteners perform at their best – or is that at their “worst” ?.
NOTE: Let’s look at an example of one of the worst “acid forming” culprits – “fizzy cold drinks”. On average a soft drink cola has a pH of 2.5. This means it is very acidic and would need 32 glasses of water (neutral pH 7) to counter act the acid forming effect on the body. In addition each can of cola has an average equivalent of 13 teaspoons of sugar, and most diet drinks contain aspartame, a highly toxic substance. You can see that this is a toxic disaster and a certain precursor to cancer, obesity, diabetes, ADHD and a number of other chronic diseases.
- Fresh Produce Pollution. Modern commercial farming is all about profits at any cost. If you aren’t eating organic produce you can assume most vegetables and fruit are grown using dangerous toxic chemicals. The fertilizers, herbicides and pesticides are contaminating the fresh fruit and vegetables that we eat, contributing to chronic disease and premature death. Of course GMO produce is also slowly flooding the market with its toxic proteins and unknown consequences as yet. Please note that virtually all cattle, pigs and chickens are fed with GMO corn which means that when you eat the meat your are exposed to those terrible chemicals.
- Groceries. This includes food, household detergents and cleaners, many of which are packed with “nasties” including carcinogens and excitotoxins like phenols, formaldehyde, methanol, benzene, toluene and xylene. You must learn to read the labels to find out on which shelves you “buying” cancer, heart disease, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, obesity and more.
- Water. This is an essential nutrient but you must ensure you are drinking the right water, preferably alkaline water or filtered water with a neutral or alkaline pH. Do NOT drink bottled water from a plastic bottle as it contains BPA (Bisphenol A) – one of many man-made chemicals classified as endocrine disruptors, which alter the function of the endocrine system by mimicking the role of the body’s natural hormones. In a recent study by German researchers, nearly 25,000 chemicals were found lurking in a single bottle of water. Many of these chemicals mimic the effects of potent pharmaceuticals inside your body, according to the study published in the journal PLoS.
- Nutritional Supplements. There are good and bad supplements so it is important that you have an alternative health Nutritionist on your “Support Team” to customize supplements for your specific situation and that you only purchase the best available supplements and super-foods from credible, FDA inspected environmentally and vegetarian friendly, kosher and organic certified manufacturers. Although there are many basic supplements the body requires, alkalizing Green powders are absolutely essential. If you live in the USA or Canada I can recommend buying the amazing range of toxin-free supplements and super-foods from the Global Healing Center who deliver free in the US and Canada.
- Processed Dairy Products. Most commercial processed dairy products have “nasties” including antibiotics and bovine growth hormones that cause serious health problems. If you have cancer you should consider giving up all dairy products during your healing Program.
- Smoking. This one is obvious; it is well known that cigarettes contain carcinogens that are known to cause cancer. Research indicates that smoking cuts an average of ten years off your normal lifespan.
- Alcohol. Affects many parts of the body, including the brain, heart and liver with Liver Cirrhosis being the most serious, but research also links alcohol to cancer. At best drink in moderation if you feel you have to and try to limit it to wine.
- Emotional Stress. This is the second most critical lifestyle choice – stress is the worst possible driver of chronic disease and premature death, especially cancer and heart disease; and the most difficult to manage. The key disease drivers are anger, fear, rage, trauma, hate, resentment, guilt, jealousy, complaining, criticizing and judging people. You MUST try to develop a positive attitude, do things that make you happy and that are fun and be grateful for everything and all the people in your life. This has a positive effect on your health and wellness
- Environmental Pollution. It is important for you to fully understand how air, water and environmental pollution affects your health and wellness and try to avoid exposure. There are thousands of toxic, carcinogenic chemicals being released into the atmosphere in all cities around the world. According to the United nations Environment Program approximately 10 million tons (over 21 billion pounds) of toxic chemicals are released into the air, land and water per year by industrial facilities around the world. Of these 2 million tons (over 4.5 billion pounds) per year are recognized carcinogens. (that’s a lot of cancer floating around 🙂
- Cosmetics and Personal Care Products. This is the biggest surprise package. Many of these products are packed with carcinogens and reproductive developmental toxins and have nasty long term consequences because they are used on a daily basis.
NOTE:A survey done by the Environmental Working Group (EWG), a non-profit organization, founded in 1993, included more than 2,300 people in the US and was conducted together with a coalition of public interest and environmental health organizations.
Here are just 2 points that were among the findings and are listed here to give you a better understanding of the Personal Care products used by most of us on a daily basis.
- 2 million adults – one of every 13 women and one of every 23 men – are exposed to ingredients that are known or probable human carcinogens every day through their use of personal care products.
- One of every 24 women, 4.3 million women altogether, are exposed daily to personal care product ingredients that are known to be probable reproductive and developmental toxins, linked to impaired fertility or developmental harm for a baby in the womb or a child. These statistics do not account for exposures to phthalates that testing shows appear in an estimated three quarters of all personal care products but that, as components of fragrance, are not listed on product ingredient labels (EWG et al. 2002).
- Sunscreen and Tanning Lotion. Most of the chemical sunscreens use one or more chemicals including oxybenzone, avobenzone, octisalate, octocrylene, homosalate and octinoxate. Most of these are “nasty”, however oxybenzone is considered an endocrine disruptor, can reduce sperm count in men and may contribute to endometriosis in women.
Note: Of the 1,400+ sunscreens tested by the EWG, only 5% met their safety standards and over 40% were listed as potentially contributing to skin cancer.
- Exercise and Sunshine. These are essential for good health and especially if you have cancer. Although some cancer patients might have difficulty exercising, even walking in the sun or spending a few minutes every day on a “rebounder” (mini-trampoline) makes a huge difference. I will be covering exercising in great depth in the “Cell Exercise” post in a few weeks.
- Prescription Drugs and Illegal Drugs. Illegal drugs are obvious however you will be very surprised to hear that the total number of deaths caused by conventional (modern) medicine (mainly prescription drugs) is an astounding 783,936 per year. It is now evident that the American medical system is the leading cause of death and injury in the US. ALL prescription drugs have toxic chemicals and serious side effects in them and chemotherapy is by far the worst carcinogenic chemicals. It is crazy that we have been led to believe by the Pharmaceutical companies and the conventional medical fraternity that are controlled by BigPharma, that we MUST use carcinogenic chemotherapy that is know to create cancer, to try and heal cancer. Would you throw gasoline on a fire ?
NOTE: This is an excerpt from “Death by Medicine”, a report released in October 2003 by the Nutrition Institute of America (NIH), which also stated that between 1993 and 2003 – medical mistakes took 7.8 million lives, more deaths than all the wars America fought combined. Makes you think !
- Breathing and Meditation. Of course we are all breathing, otherwise you wouldn’t be reading this article, BUT most of us are lazy shallow breathers. We must all practice “deep” breathing and I suggest combine it with meditation. Both are so important as part of a healing program and generally for your health and ultimate well-being. Deep breathing stimulates the lymphatic system, which unlike the cardiovascular system doesn’t have a pump to circulate the fluids, but is absolutely critical to eliminate toxic chemicals from our body to keep us healthy.
- Meaningful Work, Hobbies and Relaxation. Keeping your mind active through work or a hobby and practicing body relaxation is critical to achieving health and wellness and a fulfilled quality of life. This is critical for cancer patients.
I hope you have found this interesting and that after your assessment you have decided on what lifestyle changes you are going to make and when you are going to make them.
Now that we have paved the way for the next “body preparation activity” I will cover that in the next post.
Cleansing and detoxifying the body is next on the list and is the highest priority to get get rid of all the accumulated toxins and chemical waste that is stored in our bodies causing disease, especially cancer.
Best wishes , With Love and caring,
