Finding out someone has got cancer can feel devastating. It has caused untimely deaths in people from all walks of life. Beating cancer is a huge challenge, but it is possible. In William Fischer’s book, How to Fight Cancer and Win, it contains a lot of helpful information to beat the disease for good.
Here are some of the incredible finds from Fischer’s book:
Have a Daily Serving of Non-Fat or Low-Fat Cottage Cheese and Unrefined, Cold-Processed Flaxseed Oil or Flax Seeds
German biochemist Dr. Johanna Budwig who is famous all over Europe proposed an anti-cancer diet involving an everyday serving of non-fat or low-fat cottage cheese and unrefined, cold-processed flaxseed oil or flax seeds.
Cottage cheese is rich in sulfur protein and saturated fats and flaxseed oil is high in electron-rich unsaturated fatty acids. When combined together, it makes fat more soluble and can be easily absorbed into the cell membrane healing the cells.
Budwig believed that the oil in flaxseed could stop the growth of cancers. Research has seen it to be true when scientists have tested flaxseed on a number of different types of cancer cells in the lab, including breast, prostate and bowel cancer cells.
In the Budwig diet, you may add nuts, raw fruits and/or veggies and herbs to suit to your taste
Avoid Processed Edible Oils
The edible oil-processing industry destroys all the needed nutrients in the various healthy seed and vegetable oils. What’s worse is that it takes various toxic substances to make it clear, non-congealing and convenient.
Processed edible oils as well as animal fats contribute to many health conditions such as cancer, heart and liver disease, arthritis and diabetes. Foods that didn’t undergo processing are healthier compared to their processed counterparts. Good oils include unrefined flaxseed oil, olive oil and high-quality salmon and fish oils.
Eat More Garlic, Tomatoes and Oranges
Garlic contains high amount of sulfur which has been known to have healing properties. The compounds stop the formation of cancer-producing cells and enzymes that promote the spread of cancer.
Tomatoes are great source of lycopene. Lycopene is an antioxidant that fight free radicals so they can’t attach to your cells and promote disease. Studies show that lycopene helps prevent certain cancers.
Oranges and other citrus fruits are high in flavonoids. These are antioxidants that have cancer-fighting properties, which inhibit the increase of cancer cells and suppress the growth of tumors. The high vitamin C content in these fruits may ward off breast, stomach and pancreatic cancers.
Eat Plenty of Raw Fruits and Vegetables High in Abscisic Acid
Abscisic acid is a natural plant hormone known to have potent properties to fight cancer. Dr. Virginia Livingston discovered a shortage of abscisic acid and form-changing microbes in all of her cancer patients and laboratory animals with cancer. She recommended her cancer patients to eat plenty of raw fruits and vegetables high in abscisic acid such as cauliflowers, apricots, nuts and leafy greens.
Cholesterol has been misunderstood by many throughout the years. Our body makes its own cholesterol, up to 1.5 grams daily, which happens if the diet reduces cholesterol in foods. To prevent it from depositing on arterial walls, the trick is to keep it in a liquid state. High-density lipoprotein’s (HDLs) lecithin and linolenic acid help the body do this job. Dairy products such as butter, milk, eggs and cheese provide more than enough to keep cholesterol moving and safe.
The Goodness in Royal Jelly
Royal jelly contains anti-cancer properties that slow down the development of cancer. According to a 2009 study in BMC Complementary and Alternative Medicine, royal jelly suppresses the blood supply to tumors. Researchers discovered this after testing various royal jelly types on tissue cultures, where all of them inhibited the formation of blood vessels.
We are evolved to consume mostly grains, beans and local produce. New cells can only be created from the elements in our diet. Inferior cells are created by an inferior diet. The inferior diet affects the ability of the body to rid of the waste products and toxins. The result – cells degenerate and malignancy grows.
Macrobiotics promotes a healthy, holistic long-term lifestyle for people that include mental outlook as well as food choices. Here, it’s encouraged to eat regularly, chew food well, listen to the body, stay active, and keep a positive mental outlook.
Macrobiotic diets have shown to conquer cancers where surgery and chemotherapy have failed. Dieters have improved their overall health, including resolving PMS, hypoglycaemia, chronic back pain, blocked sinuses, hemorrhoids, acne and psoriasis.
Try Visualization Therapy
The mind is powerful. It can either help to cause or cure cancer. According to Dr. Carl Simonton, cancer will thrive in a body when the person is in a deep state of despair.
Dr. Jonas Miller, an ordained minister of the Peninsular Florida District of the Assemblies of God, suggests that it is first important to honestly recognize your illness, then reject it, and then seeing yourself in an extremely good health at least twice a day for 20 minutes. This means visualizing the illness being conquered and eliminated by strong forces of good.
Maintain a Healthy Living
Living a healthy lifestyle despite of living with cancer can prevent cancer-related deaths. This includes making healthy choices like avoiding smoking, maintaining healthy weight, keeping active, and most especially, eating the right foods.
When it comes to foods, the healthiest ones include:
- Onion and garlic
- Fiber-rich foods
- Raw fruits and vegetables
- Cold-processed bee pollen
- Coldwater fish
Watch out for these foods:
- Sugar and sugar substitutes
- Chemical food additives
- Enriched breads
- Instant foods
- Irradiated foods
- Fast foods
The Case of Cow’s Milk
It is hard for the human body to absorb calcium from cow’s milk. Human enzymes required to digest milk gradually wane by age 3. Fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds are better sources of digestible calcium.
Cancer does not mean the end of the world. It can be beaten. It takes a lot of effort to win over, but it’s worth it.
“You won’t find a “miracle pill” anywhere that can magically conquer cancer overnight – not now, and probably not ever” – William Fischer, How to Fight Cancer and Win.
