This nutrition-rich eating plan can help your body regain its health no matter what the challenges

The concept of the cancer diet is at the center of the treatment strategies of all alternative clinics around the world. This diet is also a good overall health diet to follow regardless of whether you have cancer or not.

All serious educational institutions of alternative medicine give excellent training in nutritional therapy. If a holistic medical doctor lacks knowledge or experience in this field, it is best to team up with someone who is an expert nutritionist. Any physician who does not take seriously the dietary aspects of healing cancer is committing a grave error.

How important is nutrition in connection with cancer?

It has been proven beyond doubt that the eating habits of a person can -- and very often do -- cause cancer. It is also well known that a change of diet can arrest, and occasionally even reverse cancer, all by itself. This is not to suggest that diet should ever be used as a mono-therapy against cancer, but that it should be regarded as one of the most important factors in the treatment strategy.

It is beyond the scope of this report to discuss diet in detail. There are many excellent books available on the subject, with hundreds of recipes and meal plans. Here we will just enclose some general dietary recommendations for cancer patients, compiled from the literature of alternative medicine. This information is not given as medical advice, only as general educational information.

Are there any foods or other substances I should eliminate from my diet?

Yes, there are several areas of concerns. Make sure you get these OUT of our eating plan.

1) Oils & Trans Fats are No-No's

All vegetable oils exposed to light can be harmful. Use only extra virgin olive oil or grape seed oil in dark glass bottles or raw refrigerated flaxseed oil in black bottles. Cook with grape seed oil or olive oil.

All margarine or anything that contains it.

All vegetable shortening or anything that contains it. It is in about 80% of all packaged baked goods.

All hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated oil or anything that contains it. (These are used in about 80% of all packaged baked goods including self-popping corn and movie theater pop corn)

2) Meats & protein cautions

All smoked or processed meat, such us bacon, salami, bologna, pastrami, sausage, ham, self-basting turkey. Dried beef, etc. (cause an extreme immune system reaction by raising the white blood-cell-count)

Minimize eating red meat. If you do eat beef, it should be grass-fed, free-range and not corn-fed or raised in feed lots.

Avoid pork completely.

Avoid all hard cheese for the first four months.

Be as sure as you can of cleanliness, if you eat fish. Try to find out if the water it lived in is free of pollution and healthy. Our oceans have high levels of mercury so you must check.

DO Eat chicken and turkey raised on free-range or wild farms, and on diets normal to their native habitats. If you can get organic meats, they are the best.

CAUTION: Most animals raised for slaughter are fed and cared for inconsistent with the health and needs of the animals, and many animals raised for food are diseased.

It is common practice to have drugs, antibiotics and dangerous hormones included in their diet to keep them alive and to manipulate their life cycles to fatten them for slaughter as fast as possible. Most animals are also put through inhumane deaths, dying in states of terror that fill their bodies with adrenaline, among other things, which gets consumed when the animal's flesh is eaten.

Humane slaughter is almost nonexistent. But if you eat animal products, be sure they are organically raised. Go to a health food store or butcher you can trust.

If you're interested in purchasing grass-fed meats that have been raised humanely and without antibioitcs and hormones, check out U.S. Wellness Meats.

3) Carbohydrates to cut out

All white, refined flours or sugar and anything that contains them. These are processed, eliminating nutrients essential to life, produced using chlorine bleach, and are extensively damaged by oxidation.

All synthetic sweeteners, containing aspartame such as NutraSweet, Equal, Sweet & Low, etc.

4) Beverages to stay away from

All soft drinks and other carbonated beverages, regardless of brand name.

All alcoholic beverages including wine for the first four months.

All tap water or filtered water that does not eliminate fluoridation. Use quality spring water for drinking and cooking.

5) Cooking or preserving methods to eliminate

All boiled or canned food.

All fried or deep fried food.

All microwaved food.

6) Miscellaneous foods to avoid

Stay away from junk food, fast food, canned food, prepared and microwaved food. The fresher the food, the more benefit it potentially has.

All tobacco products.

All vinegar, except for raw apple cider vinegar (available in health food stores). You may use fresh lemon juice instead.

All chemicals and preservatives, including sodium nitrates. Artificial coloring, artificial flavoring and food additives, including corn syrup, dextrose or white sugar.

Minimize the intake of man-made chemicals, including drugs. Virtually all-pharmaceutical drugs, including aspirin, are harmful (i.e. produce side effects) to varying degrees. If you can exercise, include that as part of your regimen.

FACT: Our bodies are made out of what we eat and drink. The quality of the resources we put into our bodies has a significant effect on the various parts that make up our bodies and how they function.

What whole foods should I concentrate on eating?

Yes, I recommend the following these principles.

1) Try raw foods

Maximize the intake of raw food, preferably nutrient rich, organically grown food free of man-made chemicals, pesticides and herbicides, can provide the body with much needed quality resources with the enzymes intact. Fresh raw food is generally high in water content.

2) Eat baked or steamed foods

Minimize eating cooked food. Cooking food begins to destroy its enzymes at 118 degrees Fahrenheit. This results in an immune response in the body known as digestive leukocytosis.

Bake or lightly steam your food.

3) Add complex or whole carbohydrates

Maintain a diet of about 70% to 75% complex carbohydrates. Eaten raw or nearly raw primarily from whole grains (not processed grains like flour), seeds, fruits and vegetables, they will give you energy WITHOUT starches and sugars which also can cause weight gain.

4) Drink plenty of pure or spring water

Be conscious that it is not wise to rely upon your food to give your body enough water to do its work. Some fruits and vegetables, such as peaches, apples and carrots, have more water content than others, such as bananas.

Drink fresh spring water daily that has not been chlorinated or fluoridated. In general you should write down your total body weight and divide it by two. The result should be the number of ounces of water you should drink daily.

This gives your body the fluid it needs to help the body rid itself of toxins and it hydrates your organs so they can do their jobs more effectively in helping you get well. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT!

Drink water that is non-chlorinated, non-fluoridated and alive. It is possible for tap water to be a healthy source of water, but not probable. Thus, wherever water is specified in these recommendations, it is generally stipulated to be spring water. Further, spring water has lower surface tension, thus a higher cleansing ability than most municipal water (tap water). Do your homework! Before getting water, check its source.

Ask the bottled Water Company for a current assay of the man-made chemical content. There should be no Sodium or Fluoride. It is frequently added to drinking water and is one of the 100 most toxic substances known to exist. Commonly found in toothpaste, it is a poison and should be scrupulously avoided (you can get toothpaste at health food stores that does not contain this). Also, some bottled water companies add chlorine to their holding tanks, and some offer filtered water and/or water bottled straight out of the tap. Be sure what you are getting is pure spring water that has not been polluted.

5) Make sure to add plant enzymes to your diet

Take plant enzymes just prior to eating in order to minimize the body's immune response and maximize the body's ability to extract the food's nutrients. The body is incapable of breaking cooked food down sufficiently to extract most of what it ultimately needs. The intestine cannot break food down below the level of Peptides (two or more chains of amino acids).

Plant based enzymes are the most popular enzymes found in natural food supplements. The four most common are Protease, Lipase, Amylase and Cellulase.

Take enzymes with cooked food to help supplement what the body would otherwise have to take from its store of enzymes in the digestive process.

Remember that plant enzymes are distinctly different from digestive enzymes. They are made from plant sources without any animal constituents and are available from most health food stores.


6) Add whole beans and nuts to your food plan

Soak raw beans, seeds and nuts in spring water, non-chlorinated, non-fluoridated, for 24 hours to deactivate the enzyme inhibitors. After 24 hours the water should be poured off, the beans, seeds or nuts rinsed, then soaked in fresh spring water again for another 8 to 12 hours before cooking or eating raw.

7) Try juicing for nutrient-dense nourishment

Get a juicer, if you drink juice, so you can have fresh fruit or vegetable juices.

Consume it within the first few minutes it is prepared. The enzymes naturally present in fruit or vegetables immediately start to break down the juice constituents into simpler compounds, and the longer the juice sits, the more its benefit is diminished.

Include the fiber to maximize the benefit. If your juicer separates juice from the fiber, eat the fiber by itself or in a salad. It is full of benefits your body can use.


8) Make sure you exercise and relax

Walk and exercise. This muscle movement helps the body's lymphatic system remove metabolic waste and toxins from the body. Lack of motion can be detrimental. If normal body movement is restricted or impractical, get deep muscle massages daily, moving toward the heart area to implement the lymphatic system.

Bring as much joy and love into your days as possible. Put yourself into circumstances that you enjoy and that inspire you. If you are dealing with toxic emotions or relationships, take steps to minimize or eliminate them. If you need help in doing this, seek out resources that will support you. This is your life. You have a right to make it work for you.
