CANCER. The (AMENDED) Truth Everyone Needs To Read

Okay- I'm amending this, based on some new information.  Amendments hi-lighted

So, I found out yesterday, that a friend of mine has skin cancer.  During the course of our conversation, I told her I wanted to put her on a diet.  Now, before you go slapping my hand, know that I was not referring to her weight- not at all.

Through my time of researching and looking in to health and wellness, I've learned much about how your body functions, and the tremendous role diet and lifestyle play in our overall health- and not just our weight.

That being said, I explained to her a little about some ideas I had for her, and then I saw this, this morning, on Facebook.  This is not my literature.  I borrowed it directly from a site called Rockin' Wellness on Facebook, who, I believe, posted it, courtesy of Johns Hopkins (SEE BELOW FOR THIS CORRECTION)...  just so there's no confusion.  :)

***A friend showed me that this was, in fact, NOT courtesy of Johns Hopkins.  I apologize for any misconception or misunderstanding.  HOWEVER, I do not feel that the information is completely false.  I will say here, what I said on Facebook-   "There are about as many articles about this, as there are colors in the world. My best advice would be to pray through it, research it, and make the choice that you feel is best for you and your family. I know it's frustrating to read one thing and then to read another and another... and they are all opposing opinions. But thankfully, we are a people who depend on a God who can guide us in truth and in decision making- like this- not on silly bloggers, like myself."  

That being said- this is not necessarily the whole TRUTH about cancer, or the complete guide to healing cancer.  This is just a passionate opinion.  I’m sorry if I’ve offended anyone- that was absolutely not my intent.  Again- this is just my blog, not the New England Journal of Medicine.  Take it for what it's worth, , and nothing more.  Thanks for reading!

Disclaimer:  I am NOT a doctor, or a nutritionist ..  or a scientist (I actually failed science one year).  I am merely a woman (a mother, a daughter, a wife, a sister, an aunt, a cousin, a friend), impassioned with the information I've learned, who wants to encourage others to learn the truth and to be free to live the life they were created to live- and not be bound by issues with weight, health and wellness.  As with any major health changes and choices you make, you should always consult your health professional before making and major decisions.

That being said, this is a little long, but trust me when I say it's well worth your time....  read on!


1. Every person has cancer cells in the body. These cancer cells do not show up in the standard tests until they have multiplied to a few billion. When doctors tell cancer patients that there are no more cancer cells in their bodies after treatment, it just means the tests are unable to detect the cancer cells because they have not reached the detectable size.

2. Cancer cells occur between 6 to more than 10 times in a person's lifetime.

3. When the person's immune system is strong the cancer cells will be destroyed and prevented from multiplying and forming tumors.

4. When a person has cancer it indicates the person has multiple nutritional deficiencies. These could be due to genetic, environmental, food and lifestyle factors.

5. To overcome the multiple nutritional deficiencies, changing diet and including supplements will strengthen the immune system.

6. Chemotherapy involves poisoning the rapidly-growing cancer cells and also destroys rapidly-growing healthy cells in the bone marrow, gastro-intestinal tract etc, and can cause organ damage, like liver, kidneys, heart, lungs etc.

7. Radiation while destroying cancer cells also burns, scars and damages healthy cells, tissues and organs.

8. Initial treatment with chemotherapy and radiation will often reduce tumor size. However prolonged use of chemotherapy and radiation do not result in more tumor destruction.

9. When the body has too much toxic burden from chemotherapy and radiation the immune system is either compromised or destroyed, hence the person can succumb to various kinds of infections and complications.

10. Chemotherapy and radiation can cause cancer cells to mutate and become resistant and difficult to destroy. Surgery can also cause cancer cells to spread to other sites.

11. An effective way to battle cancer is to STARVE the cancer cells by not feeding it with foods it needs to multiple.

What cancer cells feed on:

a. Sugar is a cancer-feeder. By cutting off sugar it cuts off one important food supply to the cancer cells. Note: Sugar substitutes like NutraSweet, Equal, Spoonful, etc are made with Aspartame and it is harmful. A better natural substitute would be Manuka honey or molasses but only in very small amounts. Table salt has a chemical added to make it white in colour. Better alternative is Bragg's aminos or sea salt.

b. Milk causes the body to produce mucus, especially in the gastro-intestinal tract. Cancer feeds on mucus. By cutting off milk and substituting with unsweetened soy milk, cancer cells will starved.

c. Cancer cells thrive in an acid environment. A meat-based diet is acidic and it is best to eat fish, and a little chicken rather than beef or pork. Meat also contains livestock antibiotics, growth hormones and parasites, which are all harmful, especially to people with cancer.

d. A diet made of 80% fresh vegetables and juice, whole grains, seeds, nuts and a little fruits help put the body into an alkaline environment. About 20% can be from cooked food including beans. Fresh vegetable juices provide live enzymes that are easily absorbed and reach down to cellular levels within 15 minutes t o nourish and enhance growth of healthy cells.

To obtain live enzymes for building healthy cells try and drink fresh vegetable juice (most vegetables including bean sprouts) and eat some raw vegetables 2 or 3 times a day. Enzymes are destroyed at temperatures of 104 degrees F (40 degrees C).

e. Avoid coffee, tea, and chocolate, which have high caffeine. Green tea is a better alternative and has cancer-fighting properties. Water--best to drink purified water, or filtered, to avoid known toxins and heavy metals in tap water. Distilled water is acidic, avoid it.

12. Meat protein is difficult to digest and requires a lot of digestive enzymes. Undigested meat remaining in the intestines will become putrified and leads to more toxic buildup.

13. Cancer cell walls have a tough protein covering. By refraining from or eating less meat it frees more enzymes to attack the protein walls of cancer cells and allows the body's killer cells to destroy the cancer cells.

14. Some supplements build up the immune system (IP6, Flor-ssence, Essiac, anti-oxidants, vitamins, minerals, EFAs etc.) to enable the body's own killer cells to destroy cancer cells. Other supplements like vitamin E are known to cause apoptosis, or programmed cell death, the body's normal method of disposing of damaged, unwanted, or unneeded cells.

15. Cancer is a disease of the mind, body, and spirit. A proactive and positive spirit will help the cancer warrior be a survivor.

Anger, unforgiving and bitterness put the body into a stressful and acidic environment. Learn to have a loving and forgiving spirit. Learn to relax and enjoy life.

16. Cancer cells cannot thrive in an oxygenated environment. Exercising daily, and deep breathing help to get more oxygen down to the cellular level. Oxygen therapy is another means employed to destroy cancer cells.
