Last time, we came to the realization that cancer is the real deal. We described what cancer was and some habits that may contribute to the cause of cancer in our bodies. This time, I want to dive into some health habits for you and your family that may help reduce cancer cell damage in your body.
Something you need to realize, something many people do not know, is we all have cancer cells in our bodies. Our key to victory is found in our ability to fight off those dangerous cancer cells.
Let’s figure out how to beat this deadly disease before it begins.
We talked a little bit about toxins last time and the need to eliminate as many toxins in our life as possible. Many people know toxins are bad but don’t know where they come from. Some things to try to avoid or limit are smoking and secondhand smoke, prolonged exposure to fumes, polluted drinking water, and petroleum-based cosmetics and lotions. Limiting these types, as well as other toxins, will help your body be strong and will help you avoid the negative effects of toxin overload that tends to cause cancer.
What is, most likely, the number one key to fighting cancer? The answer is a strong immune system. You want to do whatever you can to have a strong immune system, no matter what your age. The first key to strong immunity is having a strong nervous system. This is why regular chiropractic care is important.
Eating plenty of vegetables, preferably organic, fresh, and lightly cooked or raw, helps give your body the great nutrients it needs to build and sustain a strong immune system. Also make sure your body gets its share of antioxidants — or phytonutrients — which will help your body fight those cancer cells. Vitamins A, B, C, D, E, Selenium, grapefruit seed extract, green tea, turmeric, pine bark extract, and CoQ10 are some antioxidants to consider.
Finally, when fighting cancer naturally, it is important to consider possible immune system crashers. These are things and habits that can cause you to have a weak or poorly functioning immune system and should be avoided or limited so that you do not continue to have problems. Some immune system crashers and things to avoid as much as possible:
- Sugar and sodas because sugar weakens the white blood cells in your body that fight cancer
- Smoking and excessive alcohol consumption
- Unnecessary medications
Once you get your body working right, strengthen your immune system, and avoid what is crashing the immune system, you will be on the road to preventing cancer naturally.
Have a great day!
