When we think about Cancer, the first things that come to our minds, right after the shock and sadness, are chemotherapy and / or radiation treatments. These are very common procedures in western society.
Chemotherapy and Radiation are very effective in killing cancer cells. Radiation is especially effective when targeting external organs, like testicles because that specific part of the body can be isolated and targeted leaving the rest of the body somewhat protected. Chemotherapy is most effective in internal organs.
But, both chemotherapy and radiation destroy the immune system. The bone marrow is where the body produces the immune cells, and it is affected by these treatments. So the immune system will also be affected by these invasive and intense procedures. And, having a defective immune system not only will cause you to get sick more often, but also to develop cancer again, and again…
So, what should be the goal of the treatment? In part, the goal of these treatments is to kill the cancer cells. But, the other part of the fight against cancer should be to detoxify the body and restore the immune system that was harmed during the chemical fight against the disease.
That is why we should be preventive and not only reactive. There are some important advice in order to do so:
- Nutrition is key. Consume more organic raw foods. Ban the processed foods from your normal diet. Think of the way our grandparents would have eaten, food directly picked from the farm.
- Exercise. A good and fun idea is to buy a small trampoline, and jump up and down, this will stimulate your lymphatic system. And, is more important than lifting weights.
- Be sure to sweat! The skin is the best way to your body to detox. Drink plenty of water and get rid of the sodas.
Also: leave sugar. Sugar is the primary fuel for cancer cells. It does not matter what treatment you may choose, sugar will have to be taken off your diet.
