America: Home of the Drugged & Deceived? Part 2: Cancer

Did you know that one in two men and one in three women are now predicted to contract cancer during their lifetime?

It’s a growing epidemic that interestingly enough did not begin to boom until after World War II when processed foods, additives, and pharmaceutical drugs became mainstream.

The Truth About Cancer

We all know that after decades of research, chemotherapy, radiation, and invasive surgery are still the go-to treatments recommended by conventional doctors. Yet, chemotherapy is only effective in 2% of cases, and both chemo and radiation actually poison and weaken the body, contributing to the disease!

Most of the time, even when doctors claim that they have removed all of the cancer cells via surgery, the cancer will appear in another area of the body, because surgery does not remove the root cause of the disease: over acidity in the body.

So why do doctors continue to poison, maim, and kill their patients year after year, when the odds of curing them are so severely stacked against them?

Money.

For every one person who has cancer, there are eight people making money off of them.

A natural cure for cancer exists, and has been known for decades. But there’s no real profit in it, so the cancer industry–yes it is an industry, led by the American Cancer Society–has done everything in their power to conceal this information so that they can continue to benefit on the conventional cancer “treatment” methods.

They have gone so far as to smear the allopaths as snake oil salesmen, prevent American doctors from recommending natural treatments, cause nothing but a drug to be legally allowed to claim to “treat, prevent or cure” a disease, tamper with studies to show false hope for conventional cancer treatments, and even assassinate people who have tried to expose the truth.

But I’m here to tell you the truth, and to arm you with the information that can prevent you from losing yet another friend or family member to cancer.

The Real Cause of Cancer

Cancer is not something that happens to you at random, nor is it truly inherited through genetics. Cancer is a lifestyle disease and a mutation of cells caused by toxicity and deficiency.

We live in an over toxic world and are exposed to more toxins in one day than our ancestors were in a lifetime. Because of this our bodies are constantly struggling to stay in pH balance. In fact, if our blood becomes too acidic we die, and our bodies will actually rob alkaline minerals from our bones, muscles and teeth just to regulate our pH.

The problem is that the Standard American Diet (SAD) is extremely acidic. When we aren’t consuming enough alkaline minerals to offset the acidity in our diet and lifestyles, we become both mineral deficient and over-toxic (over-acid).

This sets us up for all forms of disease including cancer.

Natural Cures for Cancer

Disease cannot thrive in an alkaline environment, so the key to preventing and even reversing cancer naturally is to detoxify and replenish your alkaline mineral supply daily. There are many ways to do this, and here are some suggestions to get started:

#1. Eat more alkaline foods

Alkaline foods tend to be the natural plant-based foods that you inherently know are good for you, while processed, pre-packaged, fast foods and junk foods are acidifying to the body. Start introducing more organic fruits and veggies, nuts and seeds into your diet and try to crowd out the bad with the good. Daily juicing and green smoothies are a great way to increase the amount of fruit and vegetable servings you consume, however stay away from the really sweet fruits. Ideally you will want to be eating 80% alkaline foods and only 20% acidic foods.

#2. Switch to alkaline ionized water

Dr. Keiichi Morishita M.D., author of The Hidden Truth of Cancer says, “Drinking water that has a high alkaline pH, because of its de-acidifying effect, will help in preventing cancer. In Asia, alkaline water is regularly served to patients, and is considered a regular part of treatment.” Proper hydration is extremely important in the body and a great way to flush out toxins. Aim to drink at least half your body weight in ounces of ionized alkaline water from an electric water ionizer daily.

#3. Reduce your exposure to household toxins

Living a green lifestyle is a great way to reduce the amount of toxins in your home. This includes switching your cleaning products and beauty and skin care products, most of which are loaded with toxic chemicals. Ionized acidic water from an electric water ionizer is an all-natural and antibacterial fluid that can replace many of these products including glass cleaner, floor cleaner, all-purpose spray, hand sanitizer, facial toner, mouthwash and much more.

#4. Filter your tap water

Tap water is loaded with cancer-causing chemicals like chlorine, chloramines and fluoride. Even if you aren’t drinking your tap water, a drinking water filter is necessary if you use tap water when cooking. Many of the chemicals in tap water are actually inhaled when you take a shower, flush the toilet, and use the dishwasher or washing machine, so a shower filter and/or whole house filter can also reduce the amount of toxins in your home.

#5. Try natural detoxification methods

There are many detoxification methods that have been proven to be effective against cancer including infra red saunas, coffee enemas, hydrotherapy, colon cleanses, natural clay baths, and fasting, so implementing one or several of these methods can clean out your system and speed your recovery process.

The Paleo Diet vs. The Alkaline Diet: What’s the Difference?

By now you’ve likely heard of the Paleo diet, which is based on what early man ate and getting back to our roots. Not quite as well known is the alkaline diet which is comprised of 80% alkaline foods and 20% acidic foods, although celebrites like Gwyneth Paltrow, Victoria Beckham and Jennifer Aniston are now on board.

Both diets and lifestyles have many similarities, and are miles better for you than former diet crazes like Atkins and South Beach. There’s no calorie counting, no weighing your portions, just healthier food and lifestyle choices and results which are based more off of how you feel vs. what your scale says.

Here’s a rundown:

The Paleo Diet (aka The Caveman Diet)

What to eat:

  • Fruits
  • Vegetables
  • Lean Meats (grass-fed and organic are preferred)
  • Seafood
  • Eggs
  • Nuts & seeds
  • Healthy fats
  • Fermented foods

What to avoid:

  • Dairy (butter is allowed)
  • Grains
  • Processed food
  • Legumes
  • Starches
  • Sugar
  • Vegetable, hydrogenated and partly-hydrogenated oils

What to do:

  • Exercise frequently using “natural movements” that use the whole body (such as walking, running, jumping, crawling, climbing, carrying, throwing, swimming…), change up your routine and include rest periods
  • Maximize contact with nature by keeping plants, gardening, working with animals, hiking in the woods, etc.
  • Wear a minimum of clothes, shoes or other protective material because exposure to heat, cold, pressure, and other natural forces strengthens the body
  • Expose yourself regularly to the sun to get sufficient vitamin D levels
  • Try to sleep at least 8 hours a day, preferably in line with natural day-night rhythms in a pitch black room
  • Reduce overall levels of stress and spend sufficient time relaxing, playing, and just “being in the present”, without worrying about later
  • Allow contact with dirt which contains beneficial bacteria that strengthens immunity
  • Rear children the way hunter-gatherers did: extended breast-feeding baby-wearing, co-sleeping, etc.
  • Sit in a squatting position, as people in indigenous tribes do
  • Socialize and interact with people, similar to primitive tribes

Health benefits:

  • Improved sleep patterns
  • Stable energy levels
  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Stable blood sugar
  • Burn off stored fat
  • Reduce allergies
  • More efficient workouts
  • Clear skin, better teeth

The Alkaline Diet (aka The pH Miracle)

What to eat:

  • Vegetables (excluding mushrooms and canned corn)
  • Non-sweet fruits
  • Nuts & seeds
  • Beans & legumes (excluding peanuts)
  • Healthy fats & oils
  • Sea salt/Himalyan salt

What to avoid:

  • Meat
  • Seafood
  • Dairy
  • Most grains
  • Processed food
  • Starches
  • Sugar
  • Vegetable, hydrogenated and partly-hydrogenated oils
  • Fermented foods
  • Dried fruits

What to do:

  • Stay properly hydrated with ionized alkaline water
  • Learn to stress less
  • Alkalize your beauty routine
  • Switch to all natural cleaners
  • Practice soft, aerobic alkaline exercises regularly
  • Get at least 7 hours of sleep a night
  • Get 15-20 minutes of sun exposure daily

Health benefits:

  • More energy
  • Fewer colds and flu’s
  • Overall improved health
  • Disease prevention/reversal
  • Anti-aging benefits
  • Better sleep
  • Average 10-15 pound body fat loss
  • Increased mental and physical performance
  • Fewer aches and pains
  • Improved appearance of skin and hair
  • Better eyesight

The Truth About Protein

The most common question vegans and vegetarians are asked is, “where do you get your protein?”

Many meat-eaters falsely believe that meat is the only source of protein (otherwise known as the “protein myth”), but the truth is that many vegetables contain protein and the average American gets 7x the amount of protein they need.

According to Dr. Howard Murad, “There are many benefits to eating vegetable protein food as opposed to animal sources of protein. Vegetable proteins contain no cholesterol or saturated fat and in many cases also provide a good source of dietary fiber.”

Meat is difficult to break down and usually ends up putrefying and fermenting in the digestive system. In fact, when an autopsy was performed on American actor/cowboy John Wayne, 50 pounds of undigested meat was found in his system!

According to Dr. Robert O. Young, protein does not build muscle, blood builds muscle. And the best building block of blood is chlorophyll, which is found in leafy greens. So in order to build strong healthy muscle, you should eat your greens, not animal protein!

Dr. Young also says that meat robs you of your alkaline buffers and throws you into acidosis more than any other food. So if you are worried about your vegan or vegetarian daughter/cousin/friend getting enough protein, don’t!

Sources of vegetable protein include: artichokes, beets, broccoli, brussel sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, cucumbers, eggplant, green peas, green peppers, kale, lettuce, mustard greens, onions, potatoes, spinach, tomatoes, turnip greens, watercress, yams, zucchini, apples, bananas, cantaloupes, grapes, grapefruit, honeydew melon, oranges, papaya, peaches, pears, pineapple, strawberry, tangerines, watermelon, soy, legumes, nuts, seeds, and quinoa.

Unfortunately the nutritional value of even organic vegetables has decreased from what our ancestors ate decades ago due to environmental factors. Soaking your fruits and veggies in 8.5 ionized alkaline water for 10 minutes before consuming can restore your produce to a freshly-picked state.
