This blog started as a place to chat from a Christian perspective about a variety of topics. Today it is mainly a natural health blog, but I will share other topics worth mentioning. The older I get, the more I want to simplify, and I have a passion for sharing the thoughtfulness of our creator.

God created oils from plants that have potent medicinal properties. Many of us ignore these natural gifts and reach for man-made remedies. I'm on a mission to honor the physical, emotional and spiritual healing that's possible through the power of nature.

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.  I think that's how the saying goes.  With that in mind, I'm ending the cancer topic today with a quick look at ways to prevent getting it in the first place.

As I read the book Knockout, I wrote down every suggestion for avoiding cancer that was offered by the doctors Suzanne interviewed.  These are doctors who truly care about healing people.  For a further explanation of why these suggestions work, you'll have to read the book yourself.  But here's my outline for avoiding cancer, taken from what I read in the book Knockout.

Get adequate protein throughout the day (helps the liver eliminate toxins)
Increase fiber to 50 grams per day (this may only apply to adults)
Work up a sweat-it carries toxins out of the body
Drink lots of clean water
Get enough Omega 3's from fish oil or flax (5 to 7 grams)
Vitamin D and K work together to reduce cancer
take a Resveratol supplement
Turmeric, a spice used in cooking is a cancer fighter or take a Curcumin supplement to help stimulate bile flow in the liver
take Green tea extract
take a Ginger supplement
take CoQ10
Citrus peel inhibits cancer
take Vitamin A with mixed carotenoids
No Artificial Dyes
take B 12
take Vitamin D3 (one doctor claimed it is the most powerful vitamin for preventing and slowing cancer)
Melatonin is an anti-cancer
Get plenty of Folic Acid--broccoli, brussel sprouts, kale, cauliflower are some suggestions
Avoid MSG, which stimulates cancer growth
Avoid Omega 6 fats
Avoid Sugar, cancer is fueled by sugar (carbohydrates turn to sugar)
Reduce Iron, which causes inflammation
No red meat unless eaten with vegetables
No burned or charred meat
Don't cook on high heat
Eat Berries
No Glutamates, which stimulate cancer growth
(Glutamates are listed on food labels as hydrolyzed protein, hydrolyzed vegetable protein, soy protein, soy isolates, caseinate, autolyzed yeast enzymes, autolyzed yeast extract, and "natural" flavoring.)
Avoid all Soy foods, which are high in fluoride, manganese, and glutamate (brain toxins)
Drink the juice of one lemon every day for your liver
Avoid Zinc, which activates the cancer process
Deep breathing helps the lymphatic system
Calcium reduces colon cancer risk
get sufficient Iodine (ask your doctor)
Other vegetables that are anti cancer-cabbage, carrots, beets, squash and artichokes
Cancer cells thrive in an acid environment, but don't do well when the body is more alkaline.  Drink alkaline water and take green powders that contain wheatgrass, ryegrass, barley grass and algae.  These substances alkalinize the body.
Learn about the chemicals in your environment that contribute to cancer: styrofoam, plastic bottles, pesticides, hydrocarbons, phthalates, plastic food wrap, microwaving in plastic containers, etc.  These toxins accumulate in our bodies along with poisons from the food we eat.

I hope all this information helps you make good decisions that will keep you cancer-free.  Share this information with everyone you love.  See you tomorrow.
