A Natural Approach To Health
Living With Thyroid Cancer
I had a question the other day about thyroid cancer.
You get thyroid cancer when abnormal cells begin to grow in your thyroid gland.
The thyroid gland is shaped like a butterfly and is located in the front of your neck.
It makes hormones regulating the way your body uses energy and helping your body work normally.
Thyroid cancer is an uncommon cancer.
Most people who have it do very well, because the cancer is usually found early and treatments work well.
After it’s treated, thyroid cancer may come back, sometimes many years after treatment.
Experts don’t know what causes thyroid cancer.
But like other cancers, changes in the DNA of your cells seem to play a role.
Past radiation treatment of your head, neck, or chest (especially during childhood) can put you at risk of getting thyroid cancer.
To deal with thyroid 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 that goes with 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. Don’t sit close to TV sets – sit at least 8′ away. 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.
