Cancer & Nutrition Strategy

cancer(Adapted from the work of Dr. Stuart White, Whole Health Associates, Houston, TX)

It is said that with cancer, the best strategy is prevention!  The truth is, according to Boyd, a famous pathologist, the typical body is in and out of a cancerous state 40+ times each day.  There is a function of the normal body that is able to identify and control the development of cancer on a cellular level.  When this function stops working there is the possibility of developing a focus of cancer called a tumor.  A tumor is a much more difficult challenge for the body to resolve than the singular cancer cell.

Prevention can be achieved by reducing the risk factors, especially those which create a chronic immune burden, toxic burden and especially estrogen concentration.  This is accomplished by lifestyle modification and by nutrient supplementation to support the body’s innate ability to detoxify, specifically phase I and II liver function and lymphatic and immune function.  Employing the use of a family history review and using the cancer potential survey, it is possible to determine an individual’s risk tendency and therefore indicate the level of prevention that should be elected.

One principle of cancer is that the body deals with cancer the same way it deals with infection.  Certain principles dictate that by unburdening the immune system of chronic sub-clinical or cavitated infections, the immune system can be freed to far more potently attend to any tumorous or cancerous activity.  This is especially so with low-grade infestations of parasites, yeast proliferation and cavitated infections carried under the teeth or in  body cavities.  These infections may be reduced or eliminated thus liberating the immune system to the greater ambition of attacking any tumor formation.

The liver is considered by all cancer experts to be essential in achieving control over cancer.  Phase 1 and 2 liver detoxification can be encouraged with the use of lifestyle and diet modification and nutritional supplementation. (Our 21 day detox program is ideal for this.)  This is essential to the body’s immune ability to identify abnormal cell growth and target it with white blood cells.  It is proven that proper calcium function is an essential flag to activate union responses.  Almost all natural cancer therapy includes systemic and liver detoxification.

It is also possible to promote enzymatic functions through enzyme therapy and supplementation, as well as by bio-terrain assessment and support.  Some enzymes and antioxidants are respected for their ability to anecdotally reduce tumor activity.  While many Western cancer therapies are successful at controlling and killing tumors, it should be pointed out that unless the body is balanced and corrected from its former imbalance, it may reproduce the cancer yet again.  Many people waste the blessing of remission by not being proactive during the remission to reduce the likelihood of recurrence.

In general, it is evident that the immune system has been overburdened and inundated in this toxic imbalanced world.  This is our first and most important responsibility when dealing with cancer.  Caring for foundational issues in cancer can be done individually or complementary alongside other therapies.

I would like to thank Dr. White for his views on this timely and important topic.  Many of you reading this who are my long time clients will undoubtedly recognize some of the 7 Pillars of Health & Healing in Dr. White’s nutritional approach to addressing cancer.  I want to remind you that this is indeed why we follow the 7 Pillars approach to health and healing- to achieve optimal health and to minimize diseases of aging, including cancer, auto-immune, neurological, heart disease, diabetes and others.

Anyone who comes to me having a diagnosis of cancer will be encouraged to do the 21 day detox (modified, if necessary) in order to address the root cause of the cancer by improving Phase I and Phase II detoxification.  I also suggest the use of Burdock Complex from Mediherb as well as the use of a protomorphogen specific to the area affected by the cancer. (Protomorphogens are proprietary products from Standard Process)  They will also be instructed to eat a low-carb diet.  There may be other recommendations depending on the individual and how they are assessed against the 7 Pillars of Health & Healing or other assessment instruments.

It’s time to take control of your health naturally!  I’d love to hear comments from any of you who have had experience with cancer in yourself or in your family.

    • Thank you Maribel and I agaree, it’s never to early or too late to start living a preventative lifestyle. What confounds me is people who have all ready had cancer and are in remission who waste the gift of remission by not being more diligent about their nutrition and their health!
