Yes. You heard that right. And what gives me the courage to make such a bold statement? Because I’ve beaten it – using some inexpensive food items that I got easily from my town supermarket. At a time when my oncologist had lost all hope in my deteriorating health condition. And when I was given a short life sentence of only 3 months to live. So if you’re a cancer-sufferer – of whatever type – then please know that I’ve penned this blog post just for you. Using the online information gleaned through my TDS Internet subscription, and experience.
Because as people touched by the demonic hold of cancer, we need to watch out for each other.
From One Cancer Survivor to (soon-to-be) another…
I like to consider you, my worthy reader, as family. And I’d like to spend my remaining days knowing that I’ve made a difference in the lives of other people. Such knowledge would (and does) provide me with the hope I need to carry on with my life’s journey. Because cancer, believe it or not, actually thrives on stress and despair. And I don’t mean to put this in a conversational sense.
This finding is backed up by actual science; if you’d care to search for it.
As I lay struggling with my particularly severe variety of Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, a kind fellow patient in my chemo ward offered me a book to read. Titled ‘The Anti-Cancer Diet: Reduce Cancer Risk through the Foods You Eat’ by Dr. David Khayat (2015), the volume eventually proved to be a lifesaver.
In bold font, it listed all the kinds of foods that I was allowed to eat when taking regular chemo shots. At the same time, it identified all the common eatables which are complete ‘no, no’s’ for cancer victims. And after going through the work thoroughly, I was absolutely stunned to make sense of all the bad dietary choices that I’d been making.
Especially those that involved the foods that I had innocently considered were good for me.
Five Cancer-Fighting Foods to Start Eating TODAY!
Before you start to incorporate these foods into your regular eating plan, try to take a friend or loved one into confidence. Because as I learned from my own experience, you really need a lot of positive reinforcement when you’re struggling with this life-altering disease.
I know I couldn’t have made it through without my devoted friends by my side. The dear people (my gifts from God, actually) who did not allow me to give up when things got particularly rough. When my hair started falling out, and my mouth became a haven for fungus. And I lost all my muscle mass and weight – and became a mess which even I lost all recognition of.
So without any further ado, here are the five foods that have been proven to kill cancer cells naturally. And the great thing about them is that all of them can easily be ordered online.
Leafy Greens (Spinach, Lettuce, Kale etc.)
All leafy greens, particularly in their slightly raw and cooked forms (and without any additional flavorings), reduce tumor growths. They contain an abundance of several antioxidant compounds (including the vitamins A and C) that actively fight the spread of inflammation. Two additional substances naturally found in most leafy greens, glucosinolates and isothiocyanates, have powerful tumor-suppressing properties. A quick and nutritionally-sound way of adding leafy greens to your diet is by juicing them raw.
Cruciferous Vegetable Produce (Cabbage, Broccoli, Cauliflower etc.)
In addition to being rich in isothiocyanates, cruciferous vegetables like cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower and Brussel sprouts are high in glutathione. This compound is considered by many health authorities as being the body’s most powerful natural antioxidant. Glutathione not only guards cells against free radical damage, it also plays a crucial role in regenerating other ‘spent’ antioxidants. And to top it all off, this category of earthly produce comes brimming with huge amounts of Vitamin C.
Berries like cranberries, blueberries and cherries have potent flavonoid and antioxidant content. These are particularly toxic to the growth drives of expanding tumor tissues. By preventing tumorous cells from forming newer incoming blood vessels, these compounds attempt to ‘starve’ them of their nutrition. The result, of course, is a noticeable decrease in tumor size. Fresh, mixed-berry smoothies are a good way to go about consuming them daily.
The yellow spice responsible for giving Indian cuisine its smoky, earthy taste, turmeric is a real godsend for cancer patients. It has been shown, in numerous clinical trials, to exhibit strong anti-angiogenesis properties. When taking the spice, supplement it with freshly ground black pepper – preferably in a liquid.
Green teas contain powerful catechins and bioflavonoids which give it its characteristic color and warm taste. Brewing any green tea for about an hour-and-a-half fully releases these compounds into the water. And when consumed hot, these substances go straight to the cancer sites and prevent their further growth. A 1999 health documentary titled ‘Green Tea: A Brew of Health’, watchable with a TDS Internet Plans subscription, details these benefits fully.
