FINDING YOUR ANSWER TO CANCERIt’s time to get serious in our war against cancer.  Most of us have been touched by cancer in some way, with statistics indicating that 1 in 3 of us will be diagnosed with cancer during our lifetime.  However, that doesn’t mean we should sit back and allow ourselves to become a “statistic”.  For the human body to allow cancer cells to take root and multiply, there first must be a weak link in the Immune system, some degree of toxic overload and nutritional deficiencies. Now is the time to turn the tables on cancer by utilizing the powerful natural therapies we have available… and you may be surprised to learn what they are! Cancer has enemies, and some of the heaviest hitters we have now discovered are:

In America, the mainstream views on cancer treatment are undergoing a change due to enhanced education of the public. Consequently, thousands of people are now choosing natural non-toxic protocols, with an emphasis on an organic whole foods ALKALINE DIET, deep detoxification & oxygenation using INFRA-RED Therapy and good ole VITAMIN D3.

First, in order to powerfully boost the Immune system while increasing cell oxygenation, blood flow and killer T-cell function — all of which directly combat cancer cells– regular use of INFRA-RED Therapy has now been recommended as a non-toxic cancer therapy.  This was recently recognized at the Cancer Conference in London, UK by eminent International cancer specialists. It has been determined that INFRA-RED detoxifies cells poisoned with heavy metals (aluminum, mercury, cadmium), environmental chemicals and toxic drugs. We are continuously exposed to toxins such as those found in carpets, paint, plastic bottles, flame retardants, as well as our food, air and water supplies. These toxins should not be inside your body…yet many of them are! No wonder cancer has become an epidemic in our world today. Scientific evidence shows that toxic substances like preservatives, pesticides and other pollutants remain stored in the body long after exposure.

According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency over 400 chemicals have been detected in human tissue – 48 were found in adipose tissue, 40 in breastmilk, 73 in the liver and over 250 in the blood. The predominate storage site for toxins in the body is the fatty tissue. The human body has no previous experience with these chemicals and it is not designed to break them down, much less eliminate them. The only way to remove toxins from the fat storage sites is to mobilize the toxic fat. INFRA-RED is one of the most effective methods of removing fat-stored toxins from the body!   INFRA-RED Therapy will  also prompt your body’s anti-inflammatory response, causing an increase in production of white blood cells which attack anything that does not belong in our bodies, especially (& most importantly) cancer cells.

INFRA-RED Body wraps have a direct effect on capillaries, causing them to expand, which significantly improves the circulation and oxygenation on a cellular level, thus creating a very hostile environment for cancer cells and making it much more difficult for them to proliferate. In a clinical study published in the Journal of Cancer Science and Therapy, scientists studied INFRA-RED’s effects on human cancer cells in vitro and on cancer cells in mice. INFRA-RED Therapy reduced tumor volumes 86% in 30 days. The tumor-suppressing effects were even seen without high temperatures. In another study, researchers in Japan discovered that whole-body hyperthermia with INFRA-RED Therapy strongly inhibited the growth of breast cancer tumors in mice without deleterious side effects. Researchers believe this therapy is promising for long-term studies of a noninvasive adjunct treatment of breast cancer.

Next up in our arsenal of natural cancer therapies is the ALKALINE DIET, There is truly no way to overemphasize the importance of nutrition in fighting cancer and acheiving long term health. What you eat each day is much more than the source of your energy, it is also the basis for longevity. Following an ALKALINE DIET will make an enormous difference in how strong your Immune system response is, which ultimately determines your vulnerability to disease.

There is a great deal of research showing the link between an acidic pH and cancer. Cancer thrives in an acidic environment, but does not survive in an ALKALINE environment. Cancer cells make your body even more acidic as they produce lactic acid. So if you have cancer, your pH levels are low and your body is going to be too acidic. Taking action to make your body more Alkaline is vital in the battle against cancer. Unfortunately, the majority of the foods and drinks we consume in the modern Western diet are acidic, such as meat, grains and sugar, with processed foods, colas and other soft drinks being highly acidic. Actually, too much acidity is an underlying factor in many degenerative diseases — diabetes, arthritis, fibromyalgia and more. Taking medicines or supplements for cancer while your pH is highly acidic is alot like taking a bath in a tub full of dirty water. . . even when you use plenty of soap, you can’t truly get clean. By eating a predominance of foods that make the body’s pH more Alkaline, along with the use of targeted detoxification such as INFRA-RED Therapy, we can shift the body into an ALKALINE state, making it a “hostile” environment for cancer cells… and that is the goal.

Last, we need to take a look at the latest research on Vitamin D3 and its effect on cancer. Vitamin D3 is known as the “sunshine vitamin”, because we can readily absorb it through exposure to sunlight. In fact, an ever growing number of studies show that vitamin D3 has tremendous protective effects against a variety of different cancers, including pancreatic, lung, ovarian, breast, prostate, and skin cancers. Theories linking vitamin D3 deficiency to cancer have been tested and confirmed in more than 200 epidemiological studies, and validation of its Immune boosting effects stems from more than 2,500 laboratory trials. According to Carole Baggerly, founder of Grass Roots Health, as much as 90% of ordinary breast cancer may in fact be related to Vitamin D3 deficiency. Breast cancer has even been described as a “Vitamin D deficiency syndrome”. A recent research study found patients with high levels of Vitamin D were more likely to survive cancer and remained in remission longer than patients with Vitamin D deficiencies. The link was especially strong for breast cancer, lymphoma and colorectal cancer.The body makes Vitamin D after sun exposure, but it can also be found in leafy green vegetables and fatty fish. Most of us will need to supplement our Vitamin D3 in order to get an adequate amount daily.

Two studies from 2007 used meta-analysis, which combines data from multiple reports, and found that therapeutic doses of vitamin D3 could prevent up to half of all cases of breast cancer, and two-thirds of all cases of colorectal cancer in the United States. The studies showed a direct correlation between low blood levels of vitamin D3 and cancer. Those with the highest blood levels were found to be at the lowest risk, and the lowest blood levels at the highest risk. Even the National Cancer Institute estimates that 80 percent of cancer cases could be prevented. The current recommended doses are generally not enough to address health problems, so be sure to consult with your health care professional to find out what your optimal dosage should be. Be sure your supplements come from whole food vitamins so that higher doses won’t be detrimental to your health, as they might from synthetic vitamin sources.

If you have had cancer, are battling cancer or want to prevent cancer, then these natural therapies can give you the edge you need to win your battle and achieve your health goals.  Eating an ALKALINE DIET, detoxifying and oxygenating your system with INFRA-RED Therapy and getting adequate amounts of VITAMIN D3 are proven natural therapies to support your cancer care and put you on the road to lasting health and wellness.
