(NaturalNews) Do you have relatives or friends who have received a diagnosis of cancer, and now you are really worried? Are you upset by the death of Steve Jobs? Or have you or your loved ones gone through cancer treatment and personally seen the dire effects of conventional treatment?
It is time to develop a cancer prevention plan for yourself and your family. This is not a difficult task. It involves attention to diet and lifestyle, elimination of toxins in your life, and a simple nutritional supplement program.
Diet. First, your diet should be as clean as possible. Eat whole foods, the way they come from nature, and limit processed foods. Read ingredient labels on packaged foods and avoid preservatives, artificial colors and flavors. Eat organic foods when possible, especially fruits, that tend to be heavily sprayed with pesticides, and animal products.
Chemicals. Avoid exposure to petrochemicals. Many household products and personal care products contain synthetic chemicals made from petroleum. These chemicals are hormone disruptors and carcinogens. The list includes laundry detergents, household cleaners, dishwasher and dish soaps, air fresheners, shampoos, skin moisturizers, toothpaste, perfumes, and cosmetics. The list goes on. My advice is to buy organic personal care products and environmentally friendly household cleaners. And never use pesticides in your home or yard. If you smoke cigarettes, figure out a way to stop right now. Don't wait. Cigarette smoking will cause cancer, no matter how much you deny it. Drink alcohol in moderation, as little as possible. Alcohol in any form will increase your risk of many types of cancer.
Exercise. Make sure that an exercise program is part of your weekly regimen. Schedule exercise on your calendar and stick to your program. You will feel more alert, experience better moods, and enjoy more refreshing sleep. You will remain more fit and keep off unwanted fat.
Relaxation. Make sure that you do activities that are enjoyable and fun. You need personal rejuvenation and relaxation to counter the inevitable stress that accompanies pursuing your goals and projects and occupation. Supplements. Finally, your supplement program needs to contains adequate antioxidants. The strongest, state of the art antioxidants are astaxanthin, resveratrol, alpha lipoc acid (or r-lipoic acid), reduced liposomal glutathione (or its precursor n-acetyl-cysteine). Make a list of these and seek them out at your health food store or online. You can add immune activators like medicinal mushroom formulas, or modified citrus pectin, that have been shown to prevent and treat cancer. As we age our bodies inevitably undergo cellular damage. This damage needs to be repaired and abnormal cell growth kept in check. At the same time our bodies produce less natural antioxidants as we age.
Following this program is your best protection from cancer. Don't worry about cancer, take action to prevent it. If you have had cancer in the past, then this program is even more important for you to live a long and happy life.
