from Johns Hopkins
1. Every person has cancer cells in the
body. These cancer cells do not show up in
the standard tests until they have
multiplied to a few billion. When doctors
tell cancer patients that there are no more
cancer cells in their bodies after
treatment, it just means the tests are
unable to detect the cancer cells because
they have not reached the detectable size.
2. Cancer cells occur between 6 to more
than 10 times in a person's lifetime.
3. When the person's immune system is
strong the cancer cells will be destroyed
and prevented from multiplying and
forming tumors.
4. When a person has cancer it indicates
the person has multiple nutritional
deficiencies. These could be due to
genetic, environmental, food and lifestyle
5. To overcome the multiple nutritional
deficiencies, changing diet and including
supplements will strengthen the immune
6. Chemotherapy involves poisoning the
rapidly-growing cancer cells and also
destroys rapidly-growing healthy cells in
the bone marrow, gastro-intestinal tract
etc, and can cause organ damage, like liver,
kidneys, heart, lungs etc.
7. Radiation while destroying cancer cells
also burns, scars and damages healthy cells,
tissues and organs.
8. Initial treatment with chemotherapy
and radiation will often reduce tumor size.
However prolonged use of chemotherapy
and radiation do not result in more tumor
9. When the body has too much toxic
burden from chemotherapy and radiation
the immune system is either compromised
or destroyed, hence the person can
succumb to various kinds of infections and
10. Chemotherapy and radiation can cause
cancer cells to mutate and become
resistant and difficult to destroy. Surgery
can also cause cancer cells to spread to
other sites.
11. An effective way to battle cancer is to
STARVE the cancer cells by not feeding it
with foods it needs to multiple.
What cancer cells feed on:
a. Sugar is a cancer-feeder. By cutting off
sugar it cuts off one important food supply
to the cancer cells. Note: 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. Table salt has a chemical added
to make it white in colour. Better
alternative is Bragg's aminos or sea salt.
b. Milk causes the body to produce mucus,
especially in the gastro-intestinal tract.
Cancer feeds on mucus. By cutting off milk
and substituting with unsweetened soy
milk, cancer cells will starved.
c. Cancer cells thrive in an acid
environment. A meat-based diet is acidic
and it is best to eat fish, and a little
chicken rather than beef or pork. Meat also
contains livestock antibiotics, growth
hormones and parasites, which are all
harmful, especially to people with cancer.
d. A diet made of 80% fresh vegetables
and juice, whole grains, seeds, nuts and a
little fruits help put the body into an
alkaline environment. About 20% can be
from cooked food including beans. Fresh
vegetable juices provide live enzymes that
are easily absorbed and reach down to
cellular levels within 15 minutes t o
nourish and enhance growth of healthy
To obtain live enzymes for building healthy
cells try and drink fresh vegetable juice
(most vegetables including bean sprouts)
and eat some raw vegetables 2 or 3 times
a day. Enzymes are destroyed at
temperatures of 104 degrees F (40 degrees
e. Avoid coffee, tea, and chocolate, which
have high caffeine. Green tea is a better
alternative and has cancer-fighting
properties. Water--best to drink purified
water, or filtered, to avoid known toxins
and heavy metals in tap water. Distilled
water is acidic, avoid it.
12. Meat protein is difficult to digest and
requires a lot of digestive enzymes.
Undigested meat remaining in the
intestines will become putrified and leads
to more toxic buildup.
13. Cancer cell walls have a tough protein
covering. By refraining from or eating less
meat it frees more enzymes to attack the
protein walls of cancer cells and allows the
body's killer cells to destroy the cancer
14. Some supplements build up the
immune system (IP6, Flor-ssence, Essiac,
anti-oxidants, vitamins, minerals, EFAs etc.)
to enable the body's own killer cells to
destroy cancer cells. Other supplements
like vitamin E are known to cause
apoptosis, or programmed cell death, the
body's normal method of disposing of
damaged, unwanted, or unneeded cells.
15. Cancer is a disease of the mind, body,
and spirit. A proactive and positive spirit
will help the cancer warrior be a survivor.
Anger, unforgiving and bitterness put the
body into a stressful and acidic
environment. Learn to have a loving and
forgiving spirit. Learn to relax and enjoy
16. Cancer cells cannot thrive in an
oxygenated environment. Exercising daily,
and deep breathing help to get more
oxygen down to the cellular level. Oxygen
therapy is another means employed to
destroy cancer cells.

Healthy ways to start the Day

When you start your morning with good habits, you're setting yourself up for success all day long! Try one (or all!) of these eight smart a.m. tips for a healthier you. 

Wake Up Earlier

When you have a stressful morning, chances are that you're going to be feeling stressed for many hours to come. But it doesn't have to be that way! By simply waking up 20-30 minutes earlier than necessary, you can enjoy a leisurely morning without the usual hustle and bustle. Although that snooze button may be tempting, starting the day on a calm note thanks to that extra time is more than worth it! Plus, every time you hit "snooze," those interrupted spurts of sleep will only leave you feeling more tired.

Eat Breakfast

You've been sleeping for seven to eight hours or more, so your body needs fuel to wake up your metabolism and help you power through your morning. Eating breakfast prevents you from overeating throughout the day, and people who eat an a.m. meal are less likely to be overweight than people who skip it.

Ideally, your breakfast should include a combination of protein, whole grains, and healthy fats. Milk  with cereal and fruit, or upma with curd or vegetable paratha with curd or whole wheat bread with omlette are all excellent a.m. options.

Veg Out

Once you've gotten in the habit of eating breakfast, take it one step further and try to sneak in a serving of veggies or fruit with your morning meal. Add some mushrooms and tomatoes into your omelet, or add veggies in your upma or fruit in the cereal.

Take a Multivitamin

Although you should strive to get all the nutrients you can from your food, after 40 yrs taking a multivitamin will help you fill in the gaps in case you fall short on any given nutrient during the day. Think of it as your nutritional insurance policy! Make sure to take your vitamin with your breakfast to avoid an upset stomach.

Drink Water

You're going to need something to wash down your multi-vitamin with--so gulp a big glass of water! Not only are your fuel stores depleted when you wake up, but you're also probably mildly dehydrated. Drinking water first thing in the morning will help boost your metabolism, flush out toxins, and get your systems up and running. If you make this habit as regular as brushing your teeth, you may just start to notice higher a.m. energy levels.

Sneak in Exercise

Working out in the morning is one of the best things you can do to get yourself on track for the day. Not only will you not have to worry about exercising later on in the evening, but you'll also feel proud that you did something good for your body while most people were still asleep! Early morning you will also get much needed Vit D from sunlight and less polluted enviornment.

Stretch it Out

If a full-blown workout isn't going to happen for you in the early hours, try a simple stretching routine, instead. You'll still get your blood and endorphins flowing, while centering your mind.

Jot Your Thoughts

If your a.m. routine leaves you feeling scatterbrained by the time the sun is up, you may benefit from taking a few minutes to write down your morning thoughts.  You can even write a to-do list to organize yourself before the craziness of the day happens.

Mini Stress Busting Techniques

Mini-relaxations are stress busters you can reach for any time. These techniques can ease your fear at the dentist’s office, thwart stress before an important meeting, calm you wh
en stuck in traffic, or help you keep your cool when faced with people or situations that irritate you. Whether you have one minute or three, these exercises work.

When you’ve got one minute

Place your hand just beneath your navel so you can feel the gentle rise and fall of your belly as you breathe. Breathe in. Pause for a count of three. Breathe out. Pause for a count of three. Continue to breathe deeply for one minute, pausing for a count of three after each inhalation and exhalation.

Or alternatively, while sitting comfortably, take a few slow deep breaths and quietly repeat to yourself “I am” as you breathe in and “at peace” as you breathe out. Repeat slowly two or three times. Then feel your entire body relax into the support of your chair.

When you’ve got two minutes

Count down slowly from 10 to 0. With each number, take one complete breath, inhaling and exhaling. For example, breathe in deeply, saying “10” to yourself. Breathe out slowly. On your next breath, say “nine”, and so on. If you feel lightheaded, count down more slowly to space your breaths further apart. When you reach zero, you should feel more relaxed. If not, go through the exercise again.

When you’ve got three minutes

While sitting, take a break from whatever you’re doing and check your body for tension. Relax your facial muscles and allow your jaw to open slightly. Let your shoulders drop. Let your arms fall to your sides. Allow your hands to loosen so there are spaces between your fingers. Uncross your legs or ankles. Feel your thighs sink into your chair, letting your legs fall comfortably apart. Feel your shins and calves become heavier and your feet grow roots into the floor. Now breathe in slowly and breathe out slowly.
