Preventing Cancer: 11 Tips to Live By

Posted on Nov 3, 2011 in Cancer

A healthy lifestyle is the BEST way to avoid becoming a cancer statistic.   Would you believe you can eliminate your risk of cancer and chronic diseases, and significantly improve your chances of recovering from cancer just by following these 11 Tips to Live By:

  1. Drastically reduce or cut out your sugar consumption. Normalizing your insulin levels is one of the most powerful actions you can take to lower your risk of cancer. Cutting sugars and grains out is a MUST. Eliminating fructose is one of the MOST important sugars to cut out. If you have cancer, reduce to below 10 grams of sugar per day from all sources.
  2. Optimize your vitamin D levels.  Vitamin D deficiency plays a crucial role in cancer development. Researchers estimated that about 30 percent of cancer deaths may have been prevented each year simply by optimizing the vitamin D levels.   Getting optimal sun exposure year-round  can decrease your risk of cancer by MORE THAN HALF.   Alternatively, try an oral vitamin D3 supplement. The BEST way to raise your vitamin D level is by sun exposure. 
  3. Exercise regularly.  Exercise can slash your risk of cancer, by reducing elevated insulin levels and normalizing estrogen. For example, women who exercise regularly can reduce their breast cancer risk by 20 to 30 percent compared to those who are inactive.  Include a large variety of techniques in your exercise routine.
  4. Get appropriate amounts of animal-based omega-3 fats. Omega-3s are used in the formation of cell walls, making them supple and flexible, and improving circulation and oxygen uptake with proper red blood cell flexibility and function. Omega-3 deficiencies are linked to decreased memory and mental abilities, tingling sensation of the nerves, poor vision, increased tendency to form blood clots, diminished immune function, increased triglycerides and “bad” cholesterol (LDL) levels, impaired membrane function, hypertension, irregular heart beat, learning disorders, menopausal discomfort, itchiness on the front of the lower leg(s), and growth retardation in infants, children, and pregnant women.
  5. Eat vegetables. Ideally, they should be fresh and organic. Cruciferous vegetables in particular have been identified as having potent anti-cancer properties.
  6. Have a tool to permanently erase the neurological short-circuiting that can activate cancer genes. Even the CDC states that 85 percent of disease is caused by emotions. There are a number of different energy psychology tools available (NET, AK, EFT).  The Emotional Freedom Technique is one example, which has the goal of desensitization, and utilizes the tapping of acupuncture points while a client focuses on a specific issue. It was derived from Thought Field Therapy by Gary Craig, a neuro-linguistic programming practitioner who gave the technique away freely in an online manual.
  7. Maintain an ideal body weight.
  8. Get enough high-quality sleep
  9. Reduce your exposure to environmental toxins like pesticides, household chemical cleaners, synthetic air fresheners, air pollution, and plastic toxins like BPA.
  10. Reduce your use of cell phones and other wireless technologies, and implement as many safety strategies as possible if/when you cannot avoid their use.
  11. Boil, poach or steam your foods, rather than frying or charbroiling them.
