The mainstream media and medical establishment would have us believe that cancer comes out of the blue; “strikes at random”.
And that beyond getting our “five a day” and avoiding the worst lifestyle habits (smoking, heavy drinking, becoming a regular at the local fast food restaurant…), there is nothing we can do to decrease our chances of getting it.
The good news is this is not true. Thomas Lodi, M.D. knows that better than most as he has a holistic cancer clinic in Arizona where he often turns around supposedly hopeless cases. Here he summarises the most effective steps we can all take to stack the odds greatly in our favour.
“A large proportion of the habits and behaviours that are considered “normal” in modern society increase the body’s toxic burden, and anything that does that increases our chances of getting cancer. Many of the things on the first list below are not things we can avoid completely, but in most cases we can reduce our exposure to them. These lists are far from exhaustive, since there is not space to list all the substances and habits that have either been conclusively proven to influence our chances of getting cancer, or are strongly suspected to. But, in no particular order, these are some of the most important areas to pay attention to.
What to avoid
- Drugs, both pharmaceutical and recreational, including alcohol and nicotine
- Non-organic food
- Microwaved food
- Junk and processed food, including refined sugar in all its guises
- Tap water or water from plastic bottles
- Skin, hair and body care products containing manmade chemicals
- Toxic relationships
- Negative emotions
- Stress, exhaustion and/or lack of sleep
- Electromagnetic radiation from cell phones (mobile phones) and wireless internet connections
- Mammograms, X-rays and other procedures involving ionising radiation
- Amalgam fillings and root canals
- Living in a polluted, oxygen-poor environment such as a big city
What to include
- An abundance of live, water-rich raw vegetables and fruits
- Plentiful raw vegetable juices made with predominantly dark greens (you can enhance the taste by adding lemon and a little pear or green apple)
- Pure water, meaning either spring water (not bottled in plastic) or filtered water
- Regular colonics
- Daily yoga or Qigong
- Regular cardiovascular exercise
- Plenty of fresh air and sunshine
- Fun, laughter and loving relationships
- Meditation and other relaxation techniques
- Plenty of sleep. Get to bed before 10pm whenever possible and strive to make it possible often
- Massages, structural reintegration and other bodywork
- As much time as possible in natural environments with clean, oxygen-rich air”
