All of us are at risk for getting cancer. A combination of a toxic environment, depleted soil, processed foods, stress and wireless radiation are just a few factors that put all of us at risk.
Additionally, things that increase your risk of cancer are smoking, alcohol consumption, a poor diet and high insulin. Consuming refined carbs, sugar and eating frequent meals can cause high insulin. The more refined something is or the more chemically processed something is, the more eating it will increase your risk for cancer.
Knowing these risks makes taking preventive action an easy choice. Here are a few action steps that can help reduce your risk.
1. Consume a healthy low carb diet (ideally under 75 grams of carbs a day) along with intermittent fasting. Intermittent fasting and prolonged fasting may be the most important things you could do to lower your cancer risk.
Pay close attention to the quality of food you consume and be sure to avoid GMO and refined or processed foods. Moreover, research suggests that consuming just three servings of cruciferous vegetables a week can decrease your risk of getting certain types of cancer.
2. Get in the sun. Exposing yourself to infrared light increases melatonin production, which helps in decreasing your risk of cancer. Simply being out in the sun increases melatonin. In addition, be sure you are sleeping in a dark room and reducing blue light after 9pm. For information about sunscreen click here.
3. Exercise. Get your heart rate up at least 3 times a week for 10-20 minutes or more. If you rebound (jump on a trampoline) you are getting the added benefit of moving your lymphatic system as well as tightening and toning your body.
4. Take whole food supplements. It is necessary to compensate for the lack of nutrients in the food supply as well as offset the toxins that are in the environment. By consuming whole food supplements you are increasing your nutrition as well as keeping your detox organs supported (liver, lymph, kidneys and bowels).
Below is my general supplement protocol for before someone has cancer:
- 10,000IU’s of Vitamin D daily (test your blood levels quarterly; between 80-100ng/ml is ideal)
- Iodine and cruciferous vegetable supplementation (drives down estrogen in both sexes)
- Increase antioxidants (my recommendations are Vitanox and Selenomethionine. Other options include, Turmeric Forte, C complex and Ganoderma & Shiitake as well as Cellular Vitality)
5. Be sure your digestion is working properly. You are what you digest and 75% of the immune system is in the gut. If it is off, other organs will be too.
6. Lastly, manage stress. Use prayer, meditation and relaxation techniques to decompress. It is important to stress less and find balance in your life.
