5 Ways To Beat Cancer

Today more and more individuals are diagnosed with some type of cancer. But aren’t we all programmed to think: “This could never happen to me.” And yet it does. Yes, it can happen to you. And between you, your partner and you best friend, one of you may get it. So what exactly is going on in the world? Cancer is a relatively new disease and cause of death in the history of mankind.

The cancer institute online is dedicated simply to cancer statistics and occurances. Their rates between 2007 and 2009 extrapolate that over 40% of all men and women today will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. That is almost 50%!

First, what exactly is cancer?

The body is made up of trillions of cells. The cells grow, divide and die in an orderly fashion. It’s a tightly controlled process. Cancer, on the other hand, is a disease caused by an uncontrolled division of abnormal cells in a part of the body. It can happen anywhere in the body – lungs, bones, breasts, etc.

Here is an interesting fact: Cancerous cells cannot survive in an oxygenated environment.

Lets flip this around. It means that a low cellular oxygenation level in newly-formed cells are actually going to turn cancerous. In 1931 Dr. Warburg won his first Nobel Prize for proving cancer is caused by a lack of oxygen respiration in cells. He stated in an article titled The Prime Cause and Prevention of Cancer that “the cause of cancer is no longer a mystery, we know it occurs whenever any cell is denied 60% of its oxygen requirements.”

This is the prime cause of cancer.

Of course there are secondary causes of cancer but lack of oxygen seems to be the #1. He then goes on to elaborate that “the prime cause of cancer is the replacement of the respiration of oxygen in normal body cells by a fermentation of sugar. All normal body cells meet their energy needs by respiration of oxygen, whereas cancer cells meet their energy needs in great part by fermentation.”

In summary, this means that cancerous cells are anaerobes (without oxygen) and healthy cells are aerobes (with oxygen).

What reduces oxygen levels in cells?

  1. Buildup of cellular toxicity which then damages the cellular oxygen respiration mechanism within cells.
  2. Poor blood flow in the form of red blood cells clumping which slows down the bloodstream and restricts flow into capillaries.
  3. Lack of proper building blocks for cell walls that don’t allow nutrients into the cells.
  4. An acidic environment in the body.

Some people use chemo and radiation therapy to kill cancer. However, they also cause damage to healthy cells and overload them with toxins, which in turn leads to the result of cancer in normal cells! And you may have heard, cancer usually returns more than once to people unless they have made changes in their lives!

So, What are 5 Ways You Can Decrease Yours Odds of Getting Cancer!?

1. Detoxify your body (decrease cellular toxicity and increase oxygenation to cells)

Eliminating environmental toxins from your diet (by eating organically grown foods and avoiding chlorinated/fluoridated water) and your surroundings (by using non-toxic, natural cleansers, cosmetics, furniture, building materials, and clothing) will go a long way toward eliminating cancer from your life. There are a variety of ways to detox your body via water fasts, juice feasts (where you drink only fruit and vegetable juices for a set number of days), and full-on detoxification programs.

2. Exercise (increase blood flow)

One cause of poor oxygenation is poor circulation. If cells are oxygen starved they are more likely to become cancerous. So, when one exercises and increases circulation, oxygenation improves and more nutrients will be carried into the cells.

3. Proper eating habits (to create proper building blocks for cell walls)

Diet is a crucial weapon in your cancer-fighting arsenal. You should eat organic whole foods whenever possible to reduce toxins. Increase your intake of essential fatty acids from organic cold-pressed flax oil or fish oil.

Cancer thrives on sugar and refined grains. Cut them out as much as possible, and don’t use artificial sweeteners as they are not healthy. Recently, new healthy sweeteners such as stevia, xylitol, and Laknato have become widely available.

4. Eat mainly alkaline foods

Foods that are acidic to the body consist of: meats, poultry, fish, dairy products, eggs, junk food, soda, alcohol, coffee, grains, and cereals. These foods you want to minimize in your diet. Alkaline foods, on the other hand, consist mainly of fruits and vegetables. A good percentage to aim for is 75% alkaline foods and 25% acidic foods. This may be challenging in the beginning because many people’s diets are the exact opposite. Once this becomes a bit more natural, a general guideline to shoot for is: 45% cooked fruits and vegetables, 30% RAW fruits and vegetables and 25% grains, nuts, seeds, meat, fish, or poultry.
There have, in addition, been research that shows the benefits of a 100% raw food diet in the treatment of cancer. The Gerson institute in San Diego, California provides an alternative to treating cancer. The Gerson Therapy is a natural treatment that activates the body’s extraordinary ability to heal itself through an organic, vegetarian diet, raw juices, coffee enemas and natural supplements. Over the past 60 years thousands of people have been cured of ‘incurable diseases’ including: cancer, diabetes, heart disease, arthritis, and auto-immune disorders. Talk about food as medicine!

5. Support your body’s ability to use oxygen to make energy

A nutrient vital in the production of energy in a cell is CoEnzymeQ10. If a cell doesn’t have CoQ10, it can’t produce energy. Also, research shows that (high-quality) Omega-6 oils increase oxygen transfer into cells.

Remember, the more ways you attack cancer, the better your chances are of beating it. The best alternative cancer clinics in the world use multiple supplements and holistic treatments. They don’t do just one thing. If possible, do the same yourself.

Cancer can be beaten. Never doubt that. People succeed all the time. The best way to beat cancer, though? PREVENT it!

  1. If this works – why did Steve Jobs die then? Please double check your sources!

    • That’s a great questions which implies a deep answer. If you came to this page brought by The Zeitgeist movement page then you now might know the answer to your question. If not then start reading about it, when you are all informed about it your answer will be answered automatically and also your answer will sound very stupid for you then.

  2. grains?! i eat rice everyday and night. and damn this is probably too much of a “depressant” for me

  3. That’s a fantastic advert for Erin, is she a friend of yours? I have cancer, I was extremely fit, ate a very good diet, home-cooked mostly organic – got it anyway and I am not the only one. A lot of ‘alternative’ therapy people like to imply cancer is bought on by lifestyle which implies obese people sitting in front of the telly every day eating burgers. In my research into cancer there are so many conflicting ideas of causes and cures, it’s a minefield and it’s very difficult and upsetting to navigate. I have known a woman who after her first cancer diagnosis never ate a grain of sugar again and it reoccurred, also I know two people that did the ‘Gerson’ diet and they both died, the strict diet they were on made them extremely miserable in the last stages of their lives. If you look it up, Gerson does not have a good survival rate, it costs a fortune and has ‘cultish’ attributes. The raw food diet is a current fad, it’s not proven, some people like it, different people suit different things, it requires a lot of effort and equipment and guess what if you have become seriously ill, you may not be able to work and money is very tight – let alone have the energy to be cooking away every day – or being able to afford your friend ‘Erin’. It’s annoying, the ‘True Activist posts’ you are publishing regularly conflict information. It also depends what you believe in, Ayurveda medicine and TCM recommend completely different things to westerners. My advice is,research, learn to listen deeply to your body/yourself, find your own way, eat lots of good food as much as you can afford,, fruits and veg, try to get out and walk every day even if you feel like shit. Keep the faith and keep away from expensive fads and people who think they have the answer.

    • Suki –

      You bring up some good points – food is NOT everything. It is my specialty – but you’re right cancer is not ONLY attributed to food.

      It can also be attributed to radiation. Where is your house located? Under power lines? How many xrays have you had in your life? Do you use a microwave? Do you use a cell phone? Do you use a computer? We are subjected to high and low level of radiation at all times.

      What about environmental toxins? We are bombarded daily by products offgassing in our homes – mattresses, carpets, new office furniture, etc. We clean with toxic cleaning products labeled as safe.

      The list goes on and on…

      And perhaps just as important, if not more – what are the thoughts going on inside your health? Thoughts are energy – and if someone is thinking on a conscious or unconscious level that they are unworthy, unloveable or a horrible person, it will manifest in some type of dis-ease in the body.

      Food is not everything but it’s what most people can understand. When one starts to go into more detail about Electromagnetic Frequencies and toxic pollutants in their environment, and then the power of their mind – that’s when the slope gets a bit more slippery……

      wishing you health…and i hope you continue to listen to your body.

  4. I find it hard to believe that you can be “miserable” on a whole foods, organic, healthy diet. The Gerson lifestyle is not horrible, it’s composed of juicing, eating raw and whole foods, avoiding toxins, coffee enemas. How is this horrible? This can only benefit the body, as opposed to junk food, sugar, salt and fat to excess, which is not the way the human body was designed to be nourished.

  5. Water PREVENTS cancer… drink lots of water to eliminate toxins from your body.

    • All water is flouridated or chlorinated which are other causes of cancer, how can we de flouridate our waterss, even bottled water contains these poisons

  6. An apple a day keeps the doctor away??? Well lets start comparing apples to apples. A high Brix organic apple as opposed to a conventional or hippy organic apple. Alkaline foods made me sick. Vegetarian diet made me sick. I am genetically up able to live on only raw food. This is poor science. Don’t follow this article fully or you will be in trouble. I am shook that people write stuff like this.

  7. very useful information

  8. This is string of half truth and nonsense. If it were that easily stoppable, somebody would be EXTREMELY rich. This is harmful propaganda, shifting the blame for cancer to the person with the disease – “you didn’t look after your body so you will die as a result”.and Gerson “therapy” which is expensive to “receive” has been proven to be ineffective many times over as people follow it and die.

    This sort of article always comes from “therapists” who stand to profit directly from the links in this article being clicked and products and services purchased from the links. Do NOT buy anything from this person and at least cross check this information for yourself with reputable websites.

    Please, please, please.

  9. Now I am involved in science and it looks to me like total bullshit..very sad to realize that trueactivist posts things like this because the credibility of other posts drops instantly as a result..at least for me.
    I believe there is no easy cure for cancer first of all because there is a huge diversity of cancers.. with very different causes and characteristics. There is more than one million articles published on cancer in the scientific journals across the world… and having one nice solution for all of them is utopia. It is demonstrated that mutations that affect either the genetic sequence or level of expression of VARIOUS genes lead to the different forms of cancers. One could argue that it would be possible to lower the incidence of these mutations by some potential means (I doubt that).. but once they happened you can’t just cure it with a diet. The high probability that this mutations happen might even be inherited and then even preventing it might fail whatever you do.

    Way more reliable than guessing what one should eat are of course conventional therapy methods.
    Molecular biologists are of course progressing.. though not at the rate to be able to help many people immediately (also considering the need for extensive periods of clinical trial lasting more than a decade). The current focus is on understanding what genes go wrong in cancer.. and for that massive databases are established with sequenced genomes from people with different varieties of cancers. To find out what form of cancer a person has .. or is predisposed to one should sequence his/her genome and compare it to the database. This would lead at least to very precise diagnosis…For therapy there is need of efficient methods for precisely targeting cancerous cells with chemicals that would destroy it (it is a big focus in research).
    I don’t want to paint it in bright colors.. but one girl has been recently cured of a bad form of leukemia by administering re-engineered immune cells to target her cancerous cells. (Elder patients just had the cancer under control.. and they would be dead otherwise..). Leukemia is easier to approach than other cancers… but still..
