Cancer is the number two cause of death in America and the developed nations of the world with one out of four dying from cancer and 38% of women and 43% of men projected to develop cancer over their lifetime. Cancer is a disease that affects millions of people each and every year. Disease that, first and foremost, is a problem with the immune system, you can not have cancer if you have an intact immune system. With cancer or any other chronic disease, it’s all about lowering inflammation and increasing the immune system response. Our body already has this natural mechanism to fight cancer, we just have to take care of it.
Seeds or kernels of the apricot grown in central Asia and around the Mediterranean are so sweet that they’re sometimes substituted for almonds. According to research, the seeds of the apricot fruit contain a substance called laetrile, which may help in the treatment and prevention of cancer. Laetrile is also known as Vitamin B 17. It was in the 1920’s that the idea that the substance extracted from apricot seeds can reduce tumors first came about. The issue with apricot seeds is that they contain cyanide. Apricot seeds contain special properties that slow down the spread of illness throughout the body by killing harmful cells.
The banning of laetrile in the United States has to do with concerns about the possibility of cyanide toxicity. We are frequently exposed to cyanide (natural and man-made) as it is found in countless places in our environment, including our water, soil, air and food sources, both plant and animal. In fact, certain foods that we consume produce cyanide in small amounts within the body. Our bodies then convert the cyanide to thiocyanate.
Once the conversion takes place, the thiocyanate is safely eliminated via urine. Many other foods, including those we eat every day, also contain cyanide compounds. Here is a list of the many foods consumed on a daily basis that contain cyanide compounds. Mind you, this is a small list and by no means complete: Broccoli, Kale, Soy, Coffee beans, Mustard seeds, Fungi, Algae, Horseradish, Strawberries, Peanuts, Flax seeds, Apple seeds, Cherry pits, Almonds, Turnips, Raspberries, Lima beans, Blackberries, Garlic, Onions, Mango, Collard greens, Cauliflower, Millet sprouts, Grape seeds, Cassava root.
It is pivotal to note that cyanide can be dangerous only when consumed in large amounts. When taken properly, it is safe. Alternative medicine proponents recommend the usage of this vitamin for the treatment of cancer; however, there is no conventional therapy approved by the FDA with it. Also, the media presented a story where the focus was on the danger of cyanide from apricot kernels and apple seeds to prevent the public from resorting to this natural cure. The truth is much different because cyanide destroys the cancerous cells successfully.
Turmeric is known to help in fighting cancer. But how to use turmeric for cancer is one of the important questions. The Indian root turmeric is in a class of its own when it comes to easing inflammation, fighting cancer and promoting all-around health. There are various ways of using turmeric in everyday life to treat cancer.
Baking Soda and Turmeric
Cancer cells develop in an acidic environment. Being an Alkaline substance baking soda restricts the growth of cancerous tumors in the body.
- Baking Soda
Collect juice of ½ lemon. Add 1 teaspoon baking soda in a glass of purified water and mix the lemon juice. Add 1/2 to 1 spoon of turmeric powder and mix well and drink it daily for about a month minimum. The mix will restrict the growth of cancerous cells in the body and make it stabilized. Best time to take is 30 minutes before and minimum 2 hours after any meal.
Olive Oil and Turmeric
Combining turmeric with a healthy oil is another effective way to get more health benefits for your buck. That’s because turmeric is fat-soluble, which means it dissolves in fat, allowing your body to absorb it. Olive Oil is known to Prevent as well as Treat Brain Cancer.
- Olive Oil
- Ground pepper
Take 1/4 teaspoon of turmeric, add 1/2 teaspoon of olive oil and 1 pinch of fresh ground pepper and mix well to form a smooth paste. Add this mix in soup or salad and drink it slowly and steadily. The mix is excellent antioxidants and contains substantial amounts of other important compounds which can play the role of anticancer agents.
Curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric, isn’t absorbed easily by your body. Instead your body metabolizes it quickly and eliminates it even faster. Heating turmeric makes curcumin more available to your body. That means cooking with turmeric is a better idea than taking a curcumin pill. Curcumin present in turmeric alters the DNA instructions for the cancer cells. It induces cellular death for the cancer cells.
Anti Cancer Tincture
- Habaneros peppers, enough to fill your blender
- Garlic cloves, one or two bulbs
- Cheap vodka or brandy, or Apple Cider Vinegar with “the mother” (cloudy stuff at bottom)
Remove stems from the peppers. Fill the blender with the peppers. Wear the gloves whenever you touch the peppers. The oils will get into your fingers, which you probably won’t like. Peel all the garlic cloves and cut them lengthwise to see if there are any green sprouts within. Remove the sprouts and throw them away. Then fill the blender about 2/3 of the way to the top of the blender with equal parts vodka and filtered water. You could also use apple cider vinegar in place of the alcohol and no water. Make sure the vinegar has “the mother” in it which is the cloudy stuff that settles to the bottle of the bottle.
Mix ingredients in blender for about one minute until the peppers have been mushed. Pour the mixture into a dark glass bottle with a tight lid. Shake it every day for two weeks. Then it is ready to be strained. You can also start using the mixture immediately by using a tablespoon. Wearing gloves and using a clean tee shirt you don’t want anymore, strain the mixture through it so that the liquid is caught in a bowl. Then twist the tee shirt to get more of the liquid into the bowl. Pour the filtered liquid back into the dark glass jar for safe keeping.
Other foods you want to get into your diet for ultimate cancer prevention would be bright orange vegetables. Whether you are getting citrus fruits, sweet potatoes, squash, or carrots. These foods will provide you with all kinds of nutrients that you need in order to protect your body from the growth and spreading of cancer cells. Also, because they are complex carbohydrates, they have been shown to help reduce the risk of various types of cancer because they contain a significant amount of fiber which can keep the digestive system working properly.
