A Natural Approach To Health
Living With Liver Cancer
I had a question the other day about liver cancer.
Your liver continuously filters blood circulating through your body.
It performs other important functions too, like removing toxins and other chemical waste products from your blood.
Because all the blood in your body must pass through it, your liver is unusually accessible to cancer cells traveling in your bloodstream.
Your liver can be affected by primary liver cancer, which starts in your liver, or by cancer forming in other parts of your body and spreading to your liver.
Most liver cancer is secondary or metastatic, meaning it started elsewhere in your body.
Primary liver cancer, which starts in your liver, accounts for about 2% of cancers in the U.S., but up to half of all cancers in some undeveloped countries.
This is mainly due to the prevalence of hepatitis predisposing a person to liver cancer.
In the U.S., primary liver cancer strikes twice as many men as women, at an average age of 67.
Because your liver is made up of different types of cells, several types of tumors can form there.
The outlook for health or recovery depends on what type of tumor you have.
To deal with liver cancer, it’s beneficial to:
*Drink 6-8 cups of purified water daily to keep hydrated and flush toxins, whether thirsty or not. Add Performance for electrolytes.
*Spices like cardamom, cayenne pepper, ginger, rosemary, sage, thyme, and turmeric have anticancer properties (don’t use sage if you have a seizure disorder or are pregnant or nursing).
*Astragalus is a potent cancer-fighting herb (don’t use if you have a fever).
*Green tea has lots of cancer-fighting properties.
*Olive leaf extract enhances your immune system and has shown good results in fighting cancer.
*Eat a diet including grains, nuts, seeds, and unpolished brown rice. Millet cereal is a good source of protein. Eat wheat, oat, and bran.
*Eat lots of cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, and spinach. Eat plenty of asparagus.
*Eat yellow and deep-orange vegetables like carrots, pumpkin, squash, and yams.
*Apples, berries (blueberries, raspberries, strawberries), Brazil nuts, cantaloupe, cherries, grapes, legumes, oranges, and plums all help fight cancer.
*Cook all sprouts slightly (except alfalfa sprouts, which should be washed thoroughly and eaten raw).
*Eat onions and use garlic liberally, as they enhance your immune system and are good cancer-fighters. Crushing garlic and then letting it rest for 10 minutes before use raises the levels of its cancer-fighting component. If you don’t like the taste of garlic, take it in supplement form.
*Take ginger to prevent the nausea and upset stomach accompanying chemotherapy. Ginger works best when taken with protein.
*Try to eat 7 servings of whole-grain foods a day. Include at least 5 different types of grain foods in your diet each week.
*Eat 10 raw almonds every day. They contain anticancer properties.
*Eat as many tomatoes and tomato-based products as you can.
*Eat a lot of tart cherries, both fresh and in pies, jams, and sugar-free juice.
*Drink beet juice (from roots and greens), carrot juice, fresh cabbage juice, and asparagus juice often. Grape, black cherry, and all dark-colored juices are good, as are black currants. Also beneficial is apple juice, if it’s fresh. Fruit juices are best taken in the morning, vegetable juices in the afternoon.
*Limit your intake of dairy products. A little yogurt, kefir, or raw cheese occasionally is okay, but make sure you’re getting enough calcium, magnesium, and vitamin D from other foods or supplements.
*Don’t eat any of the following: peanuts, junk foods, processed refined foods, saturated fats, salt, sugar, or white flour. Instead of table salt, use sea salt. If necessary, a small amount of blackstrap molasses or pure maple syrup can be used as a natural sweetener in place of sugar. Use whole wheat or rye instead of white flour. Don’t have anything containing alcohol or caffeine.
*Limit your intake of luncheon meats, hot dogs, or smoked or cured meats. Broiled fish or poultry are better choices.
*Don’t take supplemental iron unless your doctor tells you you’re anemic or need it for other reasons.
*Use only glass or stainless steel cookware and wooden cooking utensils.
*Get regular exercise.
*Check the radon level in your home.
*Because of potential low-level radiation leakage, avoid microwave ovens. Sit at least 8′ away from the TV. Also avoid x-rays.
*Avoid chemicals like hair sprays, cleaning compounds, waxes, fresh paints, and garden pesticides.
*Use a shower head that removes the chlorine from your water.
*As much as possible, avoid stress. Learn relaxation and stress management techniques to help you deal with stresses you can’t avoid.
*Detoxify, detoxify, detoxify.
