1.Eat at least five servings of fresh organic produce daily. Going from one serving to five cuts risk of all cancers by 50%. One big salad with mixed greens can take care of your daily needs.
2.Choose potent anti-cancer foods. Berries, Japanese mushrooms, broccoli sprouts, Brazil nuts, and spices like turmeric are among the best.
3.Cut out sugar and processed foods. These create inflammation and therefore cancer risk. Artificial sweeteners should also be avoided.
4.When grilling meat, marinate first and cook on low heat. Meat should be grass-fed and never processed.
5.Avoid foods that are baked or fried. A chemical called acrylamide is formed when starchy foods are heated. French fries and potato chips are among the worst.
6.Consume alcohol infrequently. Women are particularly at risk, even when drinking small amounts.
7.Drink organic coffee and green tea. Both have protective effects against many types of cancer.
Tips 8 – 14
8. Exercise. Variety is important. Choose a combination of resistance training (weights) and aerobic (brisk walking). Call us (262-646-2123) for a body composition test to find out your muscle to fat ratio.
9. Meditate/pray daily. For the non-spiritual, take time to be still & breathe deeply.
10. Get sun whenever possible. Twenty to thirty minutes a day of direct sunlight is crucial. If unable to get outside, use a full-spectrum light.
11. Fasting. Limit the time you eat to within six to eight hours a day. Fast one to three days straight, once per month. Please consult your physician first.
12. Sleep in complete darkness. Listen to your body and don’t force yourself to stay awake later than your natural biorhythm dictates.
13. Get regular “bodywork”. Massage and chiropractic can relax the sympathetic nervous system, stimulate immune system function, and enhance lymphatic drainage.
14. Detoxify. Supplements such as AdvaClear* can enhance your body’s ability to process cancer-causing toxins.
Tips 15 – 21
15. If on municipal water, have it filtered by a method (such as reverse osmosis) documented to remove the majority of chemicals (add pink Himalayan salt back into your water).
16. If on well water, have your water tested for carcinogenic chemicals from farm runoff, and for H. Pylori, a cancer causing bacteria.
17. If on municipal water, it’s also important to filter the water you shower or bathe in.
18. Houseplants can filter toxins found in your indoor air. NASA research found that roughly fifteen plants in six inch pots are needed per two thousand square feet of living space.
19. Use natural air fresheners. Essential oils diffused throughout your house are a great substitute for synthetic air fresheners.
20. Get radon levels in your home checked. Exposure to radon in the home is the second leading cause of lung cancer.
21. Limit exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMF’s). Avoid close contact to heating pads, electric blankets and cell phones.
Tips 22 – 28
22. Use cosmetic brands that don’t use carcinogens in their products. We sell Yellow Heart Sisters deodorant and lotions.
23. Get involved. Socialize regularly. Choose activities that fulfill you and give meaning to your life.
24. Investigate alternatives to conventional lawn sprays. Utilize organic or all natural yard/lawn care products.
25. Take a good quality multi-vitamin, fish oil, and vitamin D. Periodic use of a probiotic is also important.
26. Choose food and water containers that are made of old school materials. Glass, stainless steel, cast iron, and ceramic are among the best. Use lower heat when cooking.
27. Store grain and nuts in the refrigerator.
28. Select natural cleaning products that use things such as vinegar, baking soda and essential oils. Or, you can make your own!
