Recently I have a friend who was told she has some per-cancerous cells, cells that are not looking healthy. Her doctor offered her 3 options if the cells did not look better in a few months. The three options were Surgery, Steroids, and Chemotherapy. None of these sound good to me.
What the physician did not offer were suggestions for healthier cells. The Doctor did nothing to help her change the reason the cells were looking bad to begin with! It only makes sense that if you keep on doing what you have been doing, you are going to keep on getting what you have gotten. You cannot keep eating too many calories each day with no exercise and expect to loose weight. Not going to happen. Hence the lap-band surgeries and such for the obese. Oh my!
I sent my friend several pages of suggestions on how to stop or curb cancer’s growth from as assortment of different Natural Physicians, Nutritionists, Bio-Chemists and Cancer researchers. My friend read through the suggestions and the response was not what I had expected, I can tell you! Her response was that “these people want me to give up my favorite foods” and I don’t want to do that.
I asked, “So you are telling me that the prospect of loosing your hair, being nauseous, going to the hospital for weeks on end for treatments, being sick, maybe even dying is more appealing than changing your diet so you can live a longer, healthier life?” Yes, was her response. I cannot print my un-ladylike response to that answer.
Really, are you taste buds so much in power over your decisions that you cannot give up a few things in moderation to be healthier? The suggestions for helping your body fight cancer cells and creating an environment where the cancer cells are not being fed included eliminating sugars, dairy and meats. Cancer cells use glucose, carbohydrates, to grow. So not eating breads, cookies, cakes and such while fighting cancer is not so bad if you have a quicker, healthier recovery.
Keeping your body as alkaline as possible is also suggested. I use Alfalfa Complex each day to keep my sinus issues at bay and help keep my system alkaline, so taking that kind of supplements is not an unusual. Eating fresh fruits and vegetables, avoiding carbohydrates, dairy and bad fats, eating fresh fish rich in Omega3′s and non-GMO soy protein are not bad things!
I just hope others will make a different choice when told they have “ugly cells” and are willing to make a few changes on their own for better health. Doctors are not taught about nutrition as they should be, nor are they taught other options for getting better. Doctors are taught to control diseases, not keep you well. Just the way the system works for the most part. Thankfully, there are a growing number of Natural Physicians who look at a bigger picture of wellness and disease.
So when you are faced with a similar situation, what will your response be? Will you decide that eating what you have been eating is worth dying for? Stay well, Elise
