1. How can we make our body less hospitable to cancer?
Our body can be less hospitable to cancer when our blood is rich in antioxidants. We build our antioxidant level through a whole food plant-based diet (WFPBD) rich in such foods as leafy greens and fruits. For example, Dr Dean Ornish’s research showed a 70% reduction in prostate cancer growth in just two weeks.
2. Can we eat to starve cancer?
Yes, it is called anti-angiogenesis (blocking the growth of blood vessels that support tumor growth), explained in detail by Dr William Li here.
Natural antiangiogenic foods include:
– cruciferous vegetables
– many common fruits
3. What are possible causes and solutions for prostate cancer?
– animal protein, particularly dairy protein.
– Avoid dairy and other animal proteins.
– Eat a plant-based diet.
Dr Ornish’s diet (a vegetarian diet designed to provide calories in the ratio of 10% fat (very low), 20% protein, 70% carbs) has worked even for advanced cases. Learn more about Dr Ornish’s nutrition here.
4. If dairy is a cancer promoter, why is this information not made known to the public?
The animal product industries are large and have strong control over the academic community, governments and health guideline committees. Thus, commercial interests rule. It is best to be educated and protect ourselves.
5. Are there nutrients that are better absorbed when cooked?
Cooking improves the absorption of mainly carotenoids, in tomatoes, carrots, broccoli, pumpkin, etc.
Other than carotenoids, many other nutrients in vegetables are partially destroyed by cooking. Much of healing energies in natural foods are damaged by cooking.
6. I started eating healthily over the last two weeks. Why is my condition not improving?
Cancer and heart disease begin in childhood and develop over decades. Our cell environment, level of toxins and cell growth take time to change.
If we have been eating unhealthily for 20 years, it is unrealistic to expect great changes in 2 weeks.
7. Can diet alone heal cancer?
Diet is often the most important factor, but there are many other lifestyle factors affecting cancer.
Dr Loraine Day changed her diet, but her cancer did not reverse until she changed other lifestyle factors such as:
– emotional/spiritual health
8. How is sleep a factor in cancer?
During sleep, our body/mind has the best chance to restore and heal itself. Healing and detoxification require more sleep time. Melatonin is the “sleep hormone” produced inside our brain which behaves like an antioxidant.
Some foods rich in melatonin are: goji berries, grapes, tomatoes, almonds and mushrooms.
9. What is the lymphatic system? What has it to do with cancer?
The lymphatic system is an important part of our immune system. It helps in:
– fighting bacteria and other infections
– destroying old or abnormal cells, such as cancer cells
– removing toxins and other unwanted materials
When the lymphatic system is blocked or not functioning well, it promotes cancer
10. Can you share some reversal testimonials?
Sure. You can read about:
– Dr. Dale Figtree Healed non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma Naturally
– Dr. Valter Longo
