Calming the troubled mind about Cancer

Your pas is not your future

My advice or recommendation when dealing with cancer management for your own peace of mind is to get the best medical advice you can as it is important to make informed decisions about your health and wellness.

There is a lot of misinformation and vested interests around this subject, particularly in relation to surgery, hormone treatment, radiation therapy and chemotherapy. My observations are those of a layman and in no way intended to be medical advice. Do your own research and make your own decisions.
What I have found is this in order of importance:
Find ways to support your immune system, for example via diet and lifestyle.
Reducing inflammation of any kind will help your wellness recovery. Best options are bright coloured vegetables and friut,  garlic, green tea, blueberries, and herbs like ginger basil, rosemary, thyme. Pineapple fresh is another good option.
Get quality sleep approximately 8.0 hours a day
Give yourself some exercise, even walking 30 minutes a day will make a difference, out in the sunshine preferably to raise or maintain your vitamin D levels and increase your oxygen levels.

Breathing is important and 7 rounds of 7 , that ia breathe in for 7 seconds and then out for seven seconds.
Start your day with a freshly squeezed lemon juice in clean water as this will help your liver function and help akalize your body. Other dietary factors to assist with that goal are wheatgrass, and spirulina, called supergreens by some. Sprouts could be very beneficial here e.g. alfalfa and broccoli.
Include green leafy vegetables and fruit of many colours, e.g. capsicums, celery, kale,carrots, beetroot, tomatoes, apples,variety is the spice of life here, for example oranges, grapefruit tangelos, bananas, figs ,dates also nuts like almonds, cashews and walnuts.

Raw versus cooked vegetables. My research tells me that up to 80% raw food is beneficial because we tend to overcook our food and denature the enzymes in them.Tomato is one exception that benefits from further cooking to release the lycopene component
Spices: best are turmeric, cinnamon, oregano and parsley
Fish , oily varieties like sardines , mullet, wild grown salmon are suitable.
Essential fatty acids need to be included .

Avoiding refined sugars and refined carbohydrates and gluten containing foods, completes the strategy of changing how the body creates its energy more naturally. Reducing the intake or load of chemicals and preservatives on the body is very desirable.
Cooking at lower temperatures is desirable and avoid barbequing meat or high temperature cooking can help reduce the load on your body. Using coconut oil and butter are acceptable approaches here instead of trans fats and margerines.
These are a few tips to lift your energy levels, help support your immune system and take the load off your organs trying to cope with compounds we arn’t able to metabolize efficiently like wheat and refined sugars that are causing us to be obese and have problems with diabetes, dementia alzheimers and cardiac heart problems.
Low fat, high carbohydrate diets are causing all sorts of problems like inflammation, insulin resistance and gluten intolerences that we have not had previously.
A good approach is to eat food that is as natural as possible, made locally and hasn’t been manipulated by “men in white coats” What do you think?
Take care, look after your health and if you need someone to talk with about your situation , call me 0419568043 or email slater@nternode.on.net
