Johns Hopkins: Preventing Cancer









Facts About Cancer: 


 1.   Every person has cancer cells in the body.  These cancer cells do not
show up in the standard tests until they have multiplied to a few billion.
When doctors tell cancer patients that there are no more cancer cells in
their bodies after treatment, it just means the tests are unable to detect
the cancer cells because they have not reached the detectable size.

 2.   Cancer cells occur between 6 to more than 10 times in a person's
lifetime.

 3.   When the person's immune system is strong the cancer cells will be
destroyed and prevented from multiplying and forming tumors.

4.   When a person has cancer it indicates the person has multiple
nutritional deficiencies.  These could be due to genetic, environmental,
food and lifestyle factors.

5.   To overcome the multiple nutritional deficiencies, changing diet and
including supplements will strengthen the immune system.

6.   Chemotherapy involves poisoning the rapidly-growing cancer cells and
also destroys rapidly-growing healthy cells in the bone marrow,
gastrointestinal tract etc, and can cause organ damage, like liver, kidneys,
heart, lungs etc.

7.   Radiation while destroying cancer cells also burns, scars and damages
healthy cells, tissues and organs.

 8.   Initial treatment with chemotherapy and radiation will often reduce
tumor size.  However prolonged use of chemotherapy and radiation do not
result in more tumor destruction.

9.   When the body has too much toxic burden from chemotherapy and radiation
the immune system is either compromised or destroyed, hence the person can
succumb to various kinds of infections and complications.

 10.  Chemotherapy and radiation can cause cancer cells to mutate and become
resistant and difficult to destroy.  Surgery can also cause cancer cells to
spread to other sites.

11.  An effective way to battle cancer is to starve the cancer cells by not
feeding it with the foods it needs to multiply. 




CANCER CELLS FEED ON:

SUGAR & SALT: 
Sugar is a cancer-feeder.  By cutting off sugar it cuts off one important food supply to the cancer cells.  Sugar substitutes like NutraSweet, Equal, Spoonful, etc. are made with Aspartame and it is harmful.  


  • A better natural substitute would be Manuka honey or molasses but only in very small amounts.  Table salt has a chemical added to make it white in color.  Better alternative is Bragg's aminos or sea salt.

MILK: 

Milk causes the body to produce mucus, especially in the gastro-intestinal tract.  Cancer feeds on mucus.  By cutting off milk and substituting with unsweetened soy milk, cancer cells are being starved.




MEAT (EXCEPT FISH): 

Cancer cells thrive in an acid environment.  A meat-based diet is acidic and it is best to eat fish, and a little chicken rather than beef or pork.  Meat also contains livestock antibiotics, growth hormones and parasites, which are all harmful, especially to people with cancer. Meat protein is difficult to digest and requires a lot of digestive enzymes.  Undigested meat remaining in the intestines become putrified and leads to more toxic buildup. Cancer cell walls have a tough protein covering.  


  • By refraining from or eating less meat it frees more enzymes to attack the protein walls of cancer cells and allows the body's killer cells to destroy the cancer cells.


CAFFEINE & DISTILLED WATER: 

Avoid coffee, tea, and chocolate, which have high caffeine.  Green tea is a better alternative and has cancer fighting properties.  Water-best to drink purified water, or filtered, to avoid known toxins and heavy metals in tap water.  Distilled water is acidic, avoid it. 

ANGER & STRESS: 
Cancer is a disease of the mind, body, and spirit.  A proactive and positive spirit will help the cancer warrior be a survivor.  Anger, unforgiveness and bitterness put the body into a stressful and acidic environment.  Learn to have a loving and forgiving spirit. Learn to relax and enjoy life.





How To Decrease the Risk of Cancer:


A diet made of 80% fresh vegetables and pure juice, whole grains, seeds, beans, nuts and some fruits help put the body into an alkaline environment.



  • Fresh vegetable juices provide live enzymes that are easily absorbed and reach down to cellular levels within 15 minutes to nourish and enhance growth of healthy cells.  To obtain live enzymes for building healthy cells try and drink fresh vegetable juice (most vegetables including bean sprouts) and eat some raw vegetables 2 or 3 times a day.  Enzymes are destroyed at temperatures of 104 degrees F (40 degrees C).


Some supplements build up the immune system (IP6, Flor-ssence, Essiac, anti-oxidants, vitamins, minerals, EFAs etc.) to enable the body's own killer cells to destroy cancer cells. 


  • Other supplements like vitamin E are known to cause apoptosis, or programmed cell death, the body's normal method of disposing of damaged, unwanted, or unneeded cells.


Cancer cells cannot thrive in an oxygenated environment.  Exercising daily, and deep breathing help to get more oxygen down to the cellular level.  


  • Oxygen therapy is another means employed to destroy cancer cells.




ON A SIDE NOTE:
 1.  No plastic containers in microwave.

2.   No water bottles in freezer.

3.   No plastic wrap in microwave.




WHY?
  • Dioxin chemicals are highly poisonous to the cells of our body and causes cancer, especially breast cancer. Freezing your plastic bottles with water in them releases dioxins from the plastic.
  • Recently, Dr. Edward Fujimoto, Wellness Program Manager at Castle Hospital, said that we should not be heating our food in the microwave using plastic containers.  This especially applies to foods that contain fat. He said that the combination of fat, high heat, and plastics releases dioxin into the food and ultimately into the cells of the body. He recommends using glass, such as Corning Ware, Pyrex or ceramic containers for heating food. So such things as TV dinners, instant ramen and soups, etc., should be removed from the container and heated in something else. 
  • Also, he pointed out that plastic wrap, such as Saran, is just as dangerous when placed over foods to be cooked in the microwave.  As the food is nuked, the high heat causes poisonous toxins to actually melt out of the plastic wrap and drip into the food.  Cover food with a paper towel instead.

DIY Car Kit Ideas: List of Items

A DIY car kit is not the same thing as an emergency kit - they serve different purposes.

A true emergency kit should go in the back of the trunk, including items such as band-aids, Neosporin, and other trauma or survival aids. DIY car kits have non-emergency items ---but used for your own personal "emergencies," such as spilling ketchup on your shirt or a sudden headache when driving on the road.

**A DIY car kit should be in a small to medium sized container, with a zipping or buckling component to ensure the items stay inside. It can be a flimsy material bag, or a sturdy plastic container. But make sure it is small enough that it will not take up a lot of space in your back seat. The ideal size would be able to fit underneath the seat or on the floorboard.

See the items below to configure your own Car Kit according to what YOU think you'll need "in case of emergency."

6-Month DIY Wedding: The Timeline Checklist

First of all, what do I mean by a "DIY Wedding?"

A wedding that is at least 75% of planning and services done by YOU. This means NO fancy venues, expensive wedding cakes, unnecessary rentals, catering, and more.

On the side note....

Which one are you?:

Just got engaged (but having a short engagement -- 4 to 6 months)? No worries. You'd be surprised how many people pull of an entire DIY wedding in less than 4 or 5 months, so if they can, so can you. Just follow the Wedding Checklist and Timeline below:


Not yet "officially" engaged (but know you are about to be)? I HIGHLY RECOMMEND you to plan ahead, especially if you are planning the wedding all by yourself. No, you absolutely don't need to buy anything yet (and shouldn't) but you must plan ahead and know exactly what you want to do. That way, once the engagement finally comes, yo…
