Cancer Prevention is ALWAYS Better Than Cure
by Liz Barrington, Natural Body Healing
to the principles of 'Ayurveda', cancer is a disease of
imbalance. There are many potential factors that can create imbalances at
the mental, emotional, spiritual and
physical levels which can each lead to differing kinds of
health concerns. Most doctors around the world agree that
have many causes and sometimes there is no clear reason why a
cancer will develop in one person and not in another. Certain cancers, like breast cancer, may
even be hereditary.
do tend to be caused by
a combination of factors including long-term emotional issues.
These factors can act as a 'trigger' to a dormant
cellular condition and each of them are known to harm cells (through free
radical damage), and primarily damage our cell's DNA. They

The list of
possible cancer-contributing factors is long. It includes
long-term negative emotions, hormone therapy,
additives, lack of
exercise, poor lifestyle, excessive consumption of

people will get cancer, and out of these sufferers, sadly one in
4 will die from the condition. Prevention is always
better than cure, so it's important to positively and proactively
look after yourself and those that may be suffering.
To decrease the risk of getting cancer
in the first place, or to try to avoid the condition worsening
or returning, you
should consider looking at your diet, lifestyle and
environment for the long-term. You should also try to AVOID the factors listed
above as much as possible, especially if you have already been
diagnosed with the condition - this is SO important.
Here are some useful tips that you may wish to
consider to help re-establish balance within your body; it
focuses around adopting a healthier lifestyle and diet.

the first stage in cancer development.
Research shows a single puff

you also know that a
single puff of a cigarette contains over 4500 toxic
substances; passive smoking contains even more!
Rid your body of parasites!
A growing number of Oncologists are coming to the
conclusion that cancer may be caused, or at least aided by
the presence of 'parasites' in your body.
Parasites (anything that lives off another organism),
include worms, an overgrowth of yeast (candida),
bacteria and viruses and each of them must be destroyed. This will ensure that your body
actually benefits from the nutrients that you’re eating so
it becomes stronger.
Parasites produce toxins that cause problems for the liver
and other major organs, and can damage
the intestinal mucous membranes within the bowel wall. To
help rid your body of parasites, we recommend that you take

vegetables, starchy complex carbohydrates (wholemeal bread,
potatoes, wholemeal pasta and wholegrain cereals) and
which are rich in iodine, along
with a small amount of protein-rich foods such as soya, chicken, fish and
processed, ready-made meals that are stripped of nutrients
and which contain many chemical additives, flavourings,
colourings, preservatives etc. Try to seriously cut
down on 'mucus-forming' foods such as milk, cheese, butter,
margarine and sugary-foods such as confectionary, sugar,
cakes, biscuits and fizzy-drinks, as these foods will clog
up your system and reduce your immunity. Also avoid
eating 'burnt' foods such as those overly-cooked in the
oven, under the grill or BBQ, because the 'burning' of food
causes changes in its chemical structure and creates

main contributing factor in cancer remission is
switching to a
diet of all fresh raw (uncooked and preferably organic) vegetables and fruits. This
is because they provide balancing pH levels as well as
providing valuable immune-boosting antioxidants and vitamins.
Other useful tips to help alkalise the body is to drink warm
water and freshly squeezed lemon juice throughout the day.
Another option could be to mix one level teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda
(baking power) with some water and drink that once or twice
a day. Taking 2-3 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar
throughout the day in a little water is also useful in
helping to alkalise the body. Also drinking

Seriously reduce your sugar intake and starve the cancer!
with a high sugar content (simple
as sugars and sugar substitutes are best avoided if
possible, or certainly reduced. Cancer thrives on
sugars, and sugar metabolism makes the body more acidic.
Excessive sugar also creates an imbalance in the digestive
tract, allowing yeasts and other parasites to thrive and
spread deep within the intestines. What's more,
studies have shown that if you eat more than 100g sugar in a
day, this results in a sluggish immune system which will
weaken your body in its fight against cancer. Eliminate the sugars
and simple starches from the diet that cancerous cells require for
growth and survival. Fasting for 1-2 days only will
significantly shrink some cancers, but only do this
if you are healthy and strong enough. If you do need to have a
little of something sweet in your
diet, then blackstrap molasses, stevia and real maple syrup (natural,
unflavoured) are acceptable but only in very small
quantities! Always drink lots of

the amount of unhealthy fat that you eat.
In a healthy diet, 'animal' fats should be limited.
According to many different studies, red meat consumption is
tied to an increased risk of breast cancer, along with the
consumption of hydrogenated oils (trans-fats) found in
pastries, cakes, biscuits, confectionery etc. Apart
from creating acidity in the body, animal meat ferments for
long periods in the bowel to produce bad bacteria in the
Therefore try to reduce the amount of red meat and processed
foods, biscuits, cakes and pastries that you eat. If you
wish to continue eating a small amount of animal protein,
this is best derived from fish and organic poultry sources.
Yet, not all fats are bad - good fats are actually
necessary for the proper functioning of the body.
Indeed, very low cholesterol levels result in imbalances
within the hormonal system which can increase the incidences
The optimum types of fats to eat can be derived from olive
oil, flaxseed oil, omega 3 fish oil, grapeseed oil,
safflower oil, nuts, seeds and even a little sesame oil and
also coconut oil in your cooking.

your healthy bowel flora in balance!
Intestinal flora play an absolutely vital role in
healthy immune functioning – they create natural antibiotics
that keep out unwanted micro-organisms and indeed they
produce anti-cancer substances.
Antibiotic use, along with the consumption of alcohol,
caffeine, aspirin, and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs
and prolonged stress can all lead to a reduction in healthy
flora and subsequent overgrowth of
yeasts and other unhealthy bacteria in the intestines.
Healthy bowel flora also play an important role in
nutrition, digestion and they also produce valuable acids
(primarily butyric acid) that nourish the intestinal lining.
This is why taking a course of probiotic supplements
regularly - even daily, to top up the good bowel bacteria,
is so important.
Nature’s Sunshine’s ‘Probiotic
Eleven’ provides billions of
beneficial intestinal micro-organisms along with fructo-oligosaccharides
to support their growth.
Increase your digestive enzymes.
Protein is essential for repairing the body's tissues and
for all metabolic activity. It is well known that
older people and most cancer sufferers have lower than
normal amounts of protease enzymes, caspase and other
proteins. Protease enzymes are needed to break
down proteins into smaller proteins and amino acids in order
maximise digestion. Undigested proteins can pass
through the intestinal tract and remain undigested which
ferments and encourages the breeding of bad bacteria in the
bowel that has been linked to worsening effects on your overall
health and vitality levels. Nature's Sunshine's
provides good levels of supplemental protease enzymes
amongst other digestive enzymes
and also supports immunity by activating
macrophages and natural killer cells.
Oxygenate your body. Cancer
thrives in a low oxygen environment and uses other methods
to generate the energy that it needs to grow, mostly by
producing lactic acid that the liver converts back to
sugars, which the cancer then re-uses. To reduce the
cancer cells' ability to generate the energy it needs to
reproduce, you should seriously consider taking our
supplement - this supplement is highly effective in the
fight against cancer. To further increase the oxygen levels in your body,
practise deep breathing exercises, yoga, tai-chi, pilates
and even take a course of
treatments to help both oxygenate and alkalise your body's tissues.
Get enough sleep, rest and REDUCE your
STRESS! Sleep is critical to the body's
healing processes and is also important in maintaining
immunity. Cancer sufferers are often deficient in
melatonin which is the body's sleep-inducing hormone. If you
are dealing with cancer, make certain that you get plenty of
sleep by taking melatonin before bedtime, especially if you
are over 40 years old. Stress reduces your body's
immunity by 70%. Try to cut out the unnecessary
stress in your life, simplify your day, delegate, seriously
reduce the amount of caffeine and stimulants you consume, focus on
important issues only, try to be with positive, supportive people.
If you have problems sleeping, try our powerful
magnet therapy mattress pads which also stimulate the pineal gland to secrete ‘melatonin’ which
promotes rejuvenation and healing,
and bathes you in deeply relaxing magnetic fields to
help you get a better night's sleep, every night.
If you're overly stressed, try taking Nature's Sunshine's
Nutri-Calm supplement daily
to help relax you. Practising meditation and
yoga and having regular massages are important aspects to a
healthy lifestyle. Any stress reduction technique
should be practised on a daily basis and can also include
deep breathing exercises, walking, moderate exercise,
laughing, singing, socialising and having fun!

recommended that you spend no more than 15 minutes in the
sun without sunscreen every day, so your body can create enough

Avoid hazardous chemicals or materials, such as
bleaches, paints, dyes, gas, radiation, heavy metals, sprays, pesticides,
insecticides, aerosol can fumes, asbestos, certain
chemicals in cosmetics and body care products etc.
Hazardous chemicals and toxins are stored in body fat where
they can de-stabilise those body's cells and move around the
body. So if you're regularly in contact with these
kind of substances, it’s
essential that you make sure you protect yourself at all
times, and importantly try to eliminate them by
detoxing yourself regularly.
out your microwave oven!
We've already touched on 'radiation' as a possible
contributory factor and/or a cancer trigger. Microwaves heat your food by causing it to resonate at very
high frequencies. As a result, they alter the molecules and
cause changes in the chemical structure of food to create
carcinogenic compounds. Also, microwaves destroy the
nutritional value of the food and they have been shown to
hugely affect the blood. Studies also show that microwaves
increase cholesterol levels, increase the levels of leukocytes
or white blood cells (a sign of enemy invasion), decrease
numbers of red blood cells, produce radiolytic compounds
(which are unknown in nature), and decrease haemoglobin levels that
could lead to anaemia. Why take the risk - isn't it time you got rid of
yours? If you cook your own food and eat
healthily, you won't need one anyway!
Keep your emotions positive!
Our emotional state
has a huge impact on our immune system. Numerous studies
have shown that positive thoughts and feelings enhance our
immune function, whilst negative thoughts and feelings
suppress the immune function. The cancer patient is
frequently the self-effacing martyr - the ‘nice’ person who
seldom gets angry and tries to be of service to everyone.
This is not a healthy, self-empowered service, but rather a
co-dependent, neglect of self and overindulgence of others.
In this state, the emotional seeds of cancer are sown,
because this person will eventually start to resent taking
care of everyone else and feel that their own needs are
neglected. These deep-seated and often unacknowledged
resentments start ‘eating’ at them to form cancers.
People who are cheerful and positive have stronger immune
systems, have a lower heart rate and they live longer. Yet,
there is no magic formula - the key to happiness can only be
found inside YOU. Each of us must learn to take
responsibility for keeping ourselves, our thoughts,
feelings, attitudes and our language positive at all times.
Minimise your exposure to harmful electric fields

Growing evidence suggests that your health can be compromised
with prolonged close proximity exposure to
such as those emitted from electrical appliances, cordless phones, mobile
phones, PCs, laptops,
radio waves, electric wiring, microwaves, electric blankets,
wireless appliances, electric fields from overhead cables,
lighting, televisions, power sockets, electronic
equipment and telecoms masts.
electrical waves significantly deplete our own natural
energy sources, so try to avoid them whenever possible,
ESPECIALLY AT NIGHT when your body’s immunity levels are
naturally weaker. Only use heavily-consuming electrical
appliances when you’re out of the room.
Remove ALL electrical appliances such as lighting, clocks,
sockets, cables etc away from the head area in bed (best to
take them away completely, but if necessary, move them
towards the foot of the bed).
IMPORTANT: Young babies especially, and children are more
susceptible to radio waves/microwave frequencies.
Up to one year, babies’ brains are not fully myelinated;
myelin is the fatty insulation that protects nerve cells and
the brain, so please do NOT have power points located by the
cot, don’t use bedside lights, also do not use ‘mattress’ baby
monitor devices, and don’t place a ‘wireless’ baby monitor
by your baby’s head. If absolutely necessary, try to
place it away near the feet area, as your baby’s brain is
highly vulnerable at such an early age which could have an
effect on his/her future brain development.
