When a person has cancer it indicates the person has multiple nutritional deficiencies. These could be due to food and lifestyle factors.
To overcome the multiple nutritional deficiencies, changing diet and including supplements will strengthen the immune system. An effective way to prevent cancer is to starve the cancer cells by not feeding it the foods it needs to multiply.
Sugar is a cancer-feeder. By cutting off sugar it cuts off one important food supply to the cancer cells. Sugar substitutes like NutraSweet, Equal, Spoonful, etc., are made with Aspartame and it is harmful. A better natural substitute would be Manuka honey or molasses but only in very small amounts.
Cancer cells thrive in an acidic environment. A meat-based diet is acidic and it is best to eat fish, and a little chicken rather than beef or pork. A diet with fresh vegetables and juice, whole grains, seeds, nuts and fruits help put the body into an alkaline environment.
Eat fresh fruit every day. Be sure to have at least one citrus fruit daily. Frozen or canned fruit with no added sugar or syrup may also be used.
Eat most vegetables freely, one dark green (string beans, spinach) or one deep yellow (squash) is recommended daily. Cauliflower, broccoli, celery, and potato skins are recommended for their fiber content. Fiber is associated with cholesterol reduction.
Eating a well balanced diet that is rich in fresh fruits and vegetables and low in sugar is important to living healthy. Speak with a local health professional for more information about healthy eating.
