Cancer - there is hope for the future...

What is cancer?

Cancer doesn’t develop in a healthy body nor is it something we just happen to get. Cancer takes many years to develop and stems from underlying imbalances, which disrupt the normal regulation of our body’s cells to grow, divide and die naturally. Cancer cells are continually produced; however, in a healthy person their immune system recognises the abnormal cells and destroys them before they grow further.

The medical model focuses on WHAT type of cancer rather than WHY the cancer has occurred. If we figure out the underlying causes, then we can look at effective prevention and targeted treatment that will stop it re-occurring.

Causes of Cancer

18%

Infection

Parasites, viruses and fungus that live in our body can hamper our digestion, immunity and ability to create healthy cells.

23%

Obesity

Sugar feeds cancer cells. Western lifestyles, which include diets filled with processed sugars and little exercise, lead to obesity. WHO estimates 40% of people in the world are obese or overweight.

41% Environmental & lifestyle factors

Poor diet, toxic food packaging, tobacco, alcohol, environmental pollutants and radiation can compromise your immune system. Also the balance of hormones and gut bacteria, leading to the growth of cancerous cells.

18%

Genetics

Genes such as the BRCA gene can increase your risk of cancer. However, lifestyle choices can affect whether a cancer gene is activated or not.

Epigenetics – taking back control

Epigenetics studies how environmental factors affect how genes are expressed; whether a gene is active or not. Gene expression can be affected by what we eat, how we sleep, and how we manage our stress and exercise. For example, curcumin can turn on cancer protective genes. 

Are chemotherapy and radiation the best and only options?

  • Chemotherapy kills both healthy and cancerous cells; 28% of people are dying from the palliative chemotherapy and not the cancer.
  • Chemotherapy may slow the growth of fast growing cancers which have metastasized however, supporting your immunity with cancer fighting foods and supplements is vital.
  • Because chemotherapy and radiation do not kill cancer stem cells it’s important to address underlying reasons to prevent cancer growing back.

Preventing and Killing Cancer: 8 Essential Steps

  1. Let food by your medicine: focus on cancer fighting foods. Avoid sugar which directly feeds cancer cells as they have more insulin receptors than normal cells.
  2. Supplements: many herbs and vitamins can kill cancer stem cells when supported with personalised dietary and lifestyle decisions.
  3. Detoxification: reduce your exposure to household chemicals, food preservatives and additives, burnt food, alcohol and cigarette smoke.
  4. Intermittent fasting: do not eat 3 hours before sleeping and for a total of 12-14 hours overnight. This will starve cancel cells by using fat as your primary source of energy.
  5. Balance your energy: we are energetic beings, find ways to continue the energy flow with exercise, fresh air, chiropractic care, acupuncture and quality sleep.
  6. Healing emotional wounds: learn to nurture yourself, forgive yourself and others, let go of the past and things you cannot control and find ways to manage your stress.
  7. Biological dentistry: your teeth are connected to your organs through your meridian system. If you have toxic amalgams, mercury fillings they can leach toxicity into your body.
  8. True prevention: catch it early! There are many tests that detect cancer when it is the size of a pin head (yet still 8 years old). If you suspect anything, why wait until it is a lump detected on a mammogram or x-ray?
