I just noticed on our editorial calendar for January that this is National Cancer Prevention Month - which many of you may be aware of. So I thought it would be a good idea to talk about cancern prevention so we can be more aware of what we can do for ourselves and our families to protect our health.

 

The first thing that comes to my mind is improving your diet and lifestyle to avoid or remove those things that are carcinogenic. But that seems so general. What specific things could we do to reduce our risks of cancer? Anyone have information or advice to share? shy.gif

Exercise, and turmeric capsule. Turmeric is a potent antioxidant with proven anticancer, and anti-inflammatory benefits. Exercise helps keep my bodyfat in check as being over weight is also linked to cancer. I drink lots of water, and I use natural deodorant so I dont get all those chemicals going into my skin by my lymphnodes. I eat lots of fruits and vegetables with whole grains, to help transport waste and get more phytonutrients that are also good for preventing cancer. 

 

If I do all this and get cancer anyway, at least my body will be in prime shape for the battle, so its win-win.

I do much the same - especially the tumeric. It has great anti-inflammatory properties as well!

 

Anyone do an early screening?

I take many supplements, but niacin (in much higher than RDA doses) and vitamin C are perfect for keeping cancer from ever growing. There is very exciting research for those already diagnosed with many cancers (those types which have opioid receptors on the cell surface) about using very low doses of a very safe, off-patent drug called naltrexone (originally developed to use in higher doses to treat opiate addiction). Www.ldninfo.org. Incidentally LDN is also being used to treat a wide variety of auto-immune conditions.

Do yourself a favor this year, and read some articles on www.doctoryourself.com. I learned of this website, and was introduced to macro-nutrition when all three of my kids (one under one year at the time) had whooping cough at the same time. It was insane. They were cured with high doses (multiple gram doses) of vitamin C.
