Healing from Cancer Naturally

In my research over the past few years, I have identified a number of therapies that have anecdotal evidence of being effective in stabilizing, shrinking, or altogether eliminating cancer tumors. I know and know of people who have healed advanced stages of cancer in various parts of the body, by employing some combination of any number of these various therapies. As I understand it, some of these should just be done for quick bursts – like juice fasts; others are lifestyle habits that should be adopted on an ongoing basis – like eating a diet that is mostly organic living foods; and others are useful diagnostic tools. Here is my list, in no particular order. Be sure to do your own research on anything that piques your interest, and work with your team of MDs, NDs, and bodyworkers, to design a cancer healing regimen that is right for your own unique body. This is not medical advice, and I am not a doctor. This is simply information that I gathered in my own healing journey, and that I am sharing for your consideration on your own healing journey. I do not have the time to write everything all at once, so I am including information in pieces, updating this article whenever I have time. Be sure to check back!

Trampoline
Jumping on a trampoline every day helps release toxins in the lymphatic system

Coffee Enemas
Once you release toxins, you need them eliminated from your system. Coffee enemas help get the gunk out.

Organic Vegetable Juice
Drinking copious amounts of this juice helps 1) raise the alkaline level, thereby making the body’s terrain inhospitable to cancer; 2) detoxify the body, effectively getting rid of toxins; and 3) blast the body with the nutrients needed to optimize the immune system, which in turn can then go forth and kick some serious cancer booty. If you get ketosis sticks, you can determine when your body has gone into starvation mode – at which time your fat cells will be opening up and dumping out the toxins that are stored in the fat. Apparently one should stay on the juice fast as long as one can after the body goes into ketosis. If we start to feel like crap, we need to end the fast.

I have not been able to do juice fasts more than one month at a time. Each time I have gone on a fast, I have ended up nearly collapsing by the fourth week. I am now just going to do fasts for bursts – one week, ten days, etc. Some people, however, seem able to go on juice fasts for three months, with no repercussions. Listen to your body! Just be sure to drink a minimum of a gallon of juice per day, and invest in a quality juicer – ideally with a press, which reduces oxidation. I invested in a Norwalk Press. The fresher the juice, the better. I’m told that green leafy vegetable juice starts to lose its power after 15 min. That said, one cannot spend one’s whole life juicing all day, every day; so I balance out my needs. I’ll have one quart of fresh juice, then refrigerate the rest for consumption throughout the day. When not on a fast, I have drunk about ½ to ¾ gallon of juice each day, to keep the nutrients going.

Organic Living Foods
Organic fresh vegetables, nuts, seeds, and low-glycemic fruits – especially berries, which have anti-oxidant properties – infuse the body with the nutrients and enzymes it needs to self-heal. Be sure to get your A1C and glucose levels tested, to see if you can eat fruits or if you need to eliminate them from your diet. As a general rule, eat lots of salads of all shapes and stripes. Invest in Gabriel Cousens books on raw food recipes, from the Tree of Life center, to make your diet interesting.

Diagnostic Tests
Test your glucose and A1C levels, to see about your sugar levels. Cancer feeds on sugar, which means it’s important not to feed your body sugar.  Check your Vitamin D levels. You want those high. Apparently studies indicate that people in sunny areas of the world are less prone to getting cancer. Some doctors suggest reducing or altogether eliminating sunscreen. It seems like a tightrope walk, however, because you don’t want to get skin cancer through trying to eliminate whatever cancer is already a problem. I balance out the competing needs by getting outdoors during softer light hours – morning or evening – where it’s not so important to wear sunscreen. I also wear an SPF 15 sunscreen during the day, so that I have some coverage but I’m not totally blocking out the sun. For those with thyroid cancer, test your iodine and compare it to the World Health Organization recommendations for healthy iodine levels for your body type/age/gender/etc. Use thermographies to take the temperature of your body and monitor whether you’re getting hotter in some areas – meaning that you’re getting inflamed there, which is no good, or whether you’re cooling off – meaning that you’re getting less inflamed, which is awesome.
