Natural health supplements can help fight off cancer.
During the 1900s, the chances of developing cancer was about one in 20. The chances now are about eight in 20. To help fight this increase, many people are turning to natural cures.
Scientific studies show that natural health supplements can decrease the risk of dying from cancer by 50 percent, and decrease the number of new cases by about 37 percent.
One study showed that 200 mcg of selenium additives per day, given to
patients with skin cancer, cut the chances of dying from any type of the
disease in half.
In another test, 39,000 people participated in an experiment where they were given the mineral supplement selenium, and antioxidants ascorbil palmitate and beta carotene. The patients experienced a 41 percent drop in heart related problems, a 20 percent drop in tumors, and an astounding 4,396 percent drop in cataracts.
The body needs vitamins and minerals to maintain good health. Feeding cells with extra natural health supplements gives them the strength to fight cancer cells better.
But not all supplements have to come in pill form. Honey has been found to be rich in antioxidants which help protect the body. Prostate cancer can be avoided by eating a healthy diet.
Fresh fruits and vegetables contain plenty of natural cancer fighters, like lycopene. Lycopene is found in many red fruits, such as tomatoes. Studies show that lycopene not only helps prevent prostate cancer, it may help to treat it, as well.
A tumor is not cancer, it is a symptom indicating cancer may be present. Cancer is treated by attacking the symptom, rather than attacking the cause. Natural health supplements attack the cause and strengthen the body's own defenses.
Natural cancer fighters include:
Cancerous cells are being created in the body constantly. It is a process that has been going on for eons. That is why the body was designed with natural cancer fighters.
Parts of the immune system is specifically designed to find cancer cells and destroy them.
If cancer has been around since the beginning of time, then why is it more prevalent today than ever before?
A big reason for the increase is the increase in toxins and pollutants in the world, more stressful lifestyles, poor quality foods that are filled with pesticides, and now genetically altered, pathogens, and a slew of other things that weren't around 200 years ago.
All of these things weaken the immune system, and turn the body into an environment primed for cancer growth.
Cancer seems like a mysterious disease that attacks unsuspecting victims out of the blue, but actually that isn't what cancer is at all. It has a cause, and in many cases, a cure. By cleaning up the environment (the body), turning it into a place where cancer can't survive, then it must leave.
This is done by strengthening the healthy cells and the immune system designed to fight cancerous cells. Tumors grow when the cancer cells grow at a rate faster than what an overworked and depleted immune system can fight off.
Constant exposure to several thousand man-made chemicals, chlorinated and fluoridated water, pesticides, electromagnetic radiation and other toxins, allows too many free radicals to form, resulting in an excessive amount of cancerous cells.
This alone would be enough to increase the number of cancer victims. But, when combined with a weakened immune system due to a diet packed full of refined and over-processed foods, soils depleted of minerals, and over exposure to artificial light, the immune system eventually loses the battle and is no longer able to keep up with the growing number of cancer cells.
Fighting cancer is the process of reversing the conditions that allowed the cancer to grow and develop, and seeking out and destroying cancerous cells.
Finding the exact cause isn't the important part. However, the more conditions that are corrected, and the more treatments used, the better the chances of hitting on what works best in a particular case.
The important thing is to dramatically interrupt and reverse all conditions that may be the cause, to create a healthier body that stops breeding cancer. Natural health supplements help to achieve this.
Fifty years from now, some of the cancer treatments used today may seem as strange to the new oncologists as the old, popular practice of bloodletting and leeching seems to today's doctors.
Chemotherapy and radiation damage healthy cells, and take a big toll on the immune system. The problem is that the immune system is already weak, and millions of cells are already damaged.
This means that if the treatment was successful and the tumor is destroyed or removed, the cells that were damaged during the treatment are more likely to become cancerous. And if the immune system isn't supported by natural health supplements and a good diet to help it recover, it will be in worse condition then ever.
No one can predict what future treatments may be used to treat cancer, but one thing is certain, the use of natural health supplements will increase.
