Action : – Stop consuming toxins ; flush toxins from the body ; help your body repair and renew. Eat predominantly raw, organic vegetables, fruit and nuts. Cooking destroys the enzymes which are so good for our gut bacteria. Make organic vegetables the largest proportion of your diet, especially leafy greens, as these contain so many vitamins, minerals, enzymes , proteins, fiber and many chemicals that your body needs. Your gut bacteria thrives on leafy greens.
“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food” was apparently quoted by Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, yet Doctors learn next to nothing about nutrition during their studies.
No Processed Foods !
- Loaded with toxins – preservatives, colourings, emulsifiers, flavour enhancers are manufactured chemicals that do not occur in nature and have no place in our food.
- Hidden Ingredients – You cannot rely on ingredients labels as the food manufacturing industry only needs to declare a product “Generally Recognised As Safe” in order to insert it into your food without FDA approval or any third party evaluation. To date there are over 10000 chemicals used in the food manufacturing business.
- Leaching of toxins from the packaging into your food – lead, aluminium, mercury, plastic chemicals such as BPA and BPS.
- Herbicides (glyphosate), insecticides, antibiotics and other agricultural chemicals present in the raw material.
Only Organic Food !
It seems a big call but would you buy food that you knew contained rat poison, just because it was a little bit cheaper?
You can be fairly sure that all non-organic food will contain traces of Roundup/Glyphosate herbicide which is a known human carcinogen. It is an antibiotic ; in other words” it kills living things” such as your bacteria. (remember from the earlier page that they are a vital part of you !)
Non-organic farming uses a myriad of chemicals including insecticides (which kill living things !), growth hormones, anti-biotics (which kill living things !), various vaccines etc. You are putting toxins into your body that you don’t even know about.
No Sugar !
Remember from the “What Is Cancer ?” page, that cancer uses fermentation to provide its energy ? Well guess what ? Cancer survives on and loves sugar. Cancer cells have an increased number of the necessary receptors to ensure that they are fed first
Reduce or Eliminate Your Intake Of Non-Vegetable Carbohydrates !
For the same reason as above : These are converted into sugars which feed the cancer cells.
Fasting gives the body time to digest, rebuild and repair. A recommended method is “intermittent fasting” whereby you only eat within an 8 hour time period leaving the rest of the day for the body to repair. Do not, however, eat within 3 or 4 hours of going to sleep as this overloads the mitochondria and leads to the production of free radicals.
“Autophagy” is the term used for when your body does a bit of housekeeping; cleaning out toxins, recycling rubbish and stripping and recycling damaged and dead cells.
Limit Protein Intake – excess protein turns off autophagy – the aim is around 1 gram of protein per kilogram of lean body mass. Note that there is protein in legumes, nuts, seeds, grains and some vegetables (such as broccoli ) so this must be taken into account when doing your calculations.Click here for reuse options!
