A couple of key points to keep this brief....
For the holidays, a gift for any cancer survivor or a family member of someone battling cancer, "Cancer Free? Are you Sure?" - written by a breast cancer survivor and RN who shares her journey - and offers a medical explanation of why her cancer returned. What I try to share, and often I feel like my words fall on deaf ears, is the importance of lifestyle change. Conventional treatments are great at removing a tumor., but the oncologists and hospital nutritionists are poorly educated on the necessity of an anti-cancer diet. You cannot cut out a tumor and expect cancer to just "go away". It doesn't. Even if your margins are clear...the stem cells of cancer are present. Chemo and radiation rarely eliminates the stem cells...it may for a few types of cancer, but in general, this is not the case. Opening up the body for cancer surgery allows the cells to hop on the transportation railway called the bloodstream. Cancer cells "jump" at every opportunityto dig in in another location in the bod, according to one of the MDs who spoke on Day 6 of the summit.
EMFs and the cancer relationship (electro magnetic field) - are you carrying cell phones in a pants pocket or bra? DON'T!!! Since the age of cell phones brain cancer in children has increased 35%, or perhaps it was more. I encourage you to look up the work of Dr. Elizabeth Plourde, PhD, CLS- who has written books and research articles on the ill effects of EMF radiation. I have known about this for years. We reduced our use of the microwave - which has the same output as a cell phone. Of course they tell us it is not enough to harm us, right? BUT like the toxins in our skincare, it builds up, and causes microscopic damage to our cells. Some people are more affected than others...in cities where the electric companies have installed SMART METERS, the reports of skin rashes, sleeplessness and unexplained illnesses goes up considerably. Dr. Plourde can pinpoint communtiies that have undergone Smart Meter installation simplyby the origins of the calls that light up her phone - people desperate for help. Years ago I had read a book called "Dirty Electricty" and I highly recommend it. It was the reason we almost ceased using the microwave and stepped out of the room when it was used. When my husband was diagnosed with cancer we removed it all together, and adapted to a toaster oven. In addition, microWVES change the molecular structure of your food and water. If your health coach is giving you quick recipes using the microwave - please direct them to this blog post or to the resources mentioned. Promoting microwave use is not promoting a healthy lifestyle.
So there are my few tips for today:
1. If you are given the ALL CLEAR - know that there is no such thing. Cancer requires a lifetyle change that is permanent. The gift of life comes from God's healing foods.
2. Electric gadgets are not friendy to the human body, but we can't escape them. Find EMF inhibitors such a the BioDot to protect yourself. We use an Alterra home line protector to break up the EMFs of all electronics plugged into our house electrical wiring. Researching these products more thoroughly is on my to do list.
3. It's the holiday season - don't blow your healthy choices, but be smart about your indulgences, how often and what are you willing to give up? Counter your not so healthy choices with high oxygen free radical fighting foods such as the Anti Oxidant ImmunityBooster and Greens Balance products we use in our family. Add a few holistic supplements for an even greater boost - check out this recipe for one of my special wellness "potions".
Be smart, be well, and set up a consultation if you are looking to live a healthier life in 2016!
