THE BIG

C

It’s one of the most dreaded words in the world today and one that nobody ever wants to hear in relation to their own health: CANCER. Yet for all the millions of pounds being pumped into research and cures, conventional Western medicine has failed to deal successfully with this fatal condition.

According to traditional Chinese medicine (T.C.M.) there are 4 foundations to health: blood, energy, resistance, nourishment. The cornerstone of these is blood, and its condition determines the level of the body’s resistance to negative external energies as well as immunity and disease. In TCM cancer is regarded as a blood disease because weak, toxic, or impaired blood cannot carry out its vital functions of nourishing and cleansing bodily tissues. Unhealthy blood allows cell wastes and pollutants to build in tissues until they become so toxic they start to fester like rotting flesh, forming malignant tumours which spread to other tissues. This can be caused by a number of factors, the leading one being a chronic poor diet heavy in cooked meat, eggs, refined starch and sugars, and low in fresh raw foods. Poor circulation of blood, lack of energy caused by lack of exercise and shallow breathing are another cause, as are chronic stress and depression. Conventional Western medicine treats cancer with surgery, radiation, and toxic chemicals, attacking the tumours but doing nothing at all to treat the extreme toxicity of the blood which causes the problem in the first place. Instead, such aggressive therapy further weakens the blood and energy so that even if a temporary remission occurs, the cancer usually recurs with a vengeance. There are many documented cases of people who have beaten cancer naturally by rebuilding the 4 foundations, and countless cases of those who have died prematurely by allowing doctors to cut, burn, or poison their tumorous tissues; yet natural cancer therapies remain illegal in many industrialized countries. In 1925 a South African called Johanna Brandt cured herself of cancer with an exclusive grape diet and wrote about it called The Grape Cure. Jay Kordish, a well known raw juice diet advocate in America, was cured of bladder cancer at the age of 25 with a blend of raw carrot and apple juice, under supervision of the famous juice therapist Dr. Max Gersen. 30

The most logical and effective therapy for cancer is to first detoxify and purify the blood, then rebuild it with proper nutrition and suitable supplements. Scavenger cells and enzymes carried in the healthy blood can then go to work and attack the cancerous tissues, digest and dissolve the tumours, and get rid of the waste through the excretory organs. The most effective way to detoxify the blood and the rest of the body is through a series of 7-10 day fasts with daily colonic irrigations. When completed, a diet of raw fruit and vegetable juices is recommended. Breathing exercises are also very beneficial at this stage because they help circulate the blood to circulate the nutrients assimilated from the raw foods to the cells, and supply all tissues with an abundance of pure fresh energy.

The following is a list of beneficial foods and juices, as well as a list of foods to avoid: Carrot Juice - The best vegetable juice for detoxifying tissues. It alkalizes the bloodstream, which is always highly acidic in cases of toxemia. Raw carrot juice is also loaded with vitamins, minerals, and enzymes to rebuild diseased cells and rid them of toxic wastes. Drink at least one and a half litres of freshly extracted juice daily, along with deep breathing and other exercises.

Raw Beet Juice - A great liver detoxifier and blood cleanser. In regards to cancer, it purifies the bloodstream so the blood can work on detoxifying the body and bring nutrition to cells. By detoxifying the liver it further promotes clean blood, which is filtered by the liver. Take 8oz pure beet juice twice daily or 6 oz beet with 6 oz carrot juice 3 times a day.

Foods To Avoid:

ALL animal products, especially proteins and fats, i.e. No cooked meat, fat, milk, eggs etc., all refined sugars and starches, carbohydrates, oilsespecially anything hydrogenated, eat only fresh raw fruits and vegetables, juices and extracts. Avoid all food defrosted, cooked or reheated in a microwave.

Grapes - Raw grapes, especially the dark variety, are an excellent cancer therapy when taken on their own for prolonged periods. There are entire sanatoriums in Russia devoted to this cure. Grapes detoxify all tissues and organs and deliver nutrients to starved cells. Take 2-4 pounds of dark grapes daily, for a week to a month, chewing the skin and seeds as well.

Men’s Lifestyle require a freelance graphic designer to help with our expanding magazine, as well as working on new projects.

Cabbage Juice - Fresh raw cabbage juice has been proven to cure severe ulcers in the stomach, duodenum, and intestines. It is also an effective therapy for cancers of the stomach and intestinal tract. High concentrations of organic sulphur and chlorine in raw cabbage clean the mucous membranes of the stomach and intestines where cancerous cells often form. Take mixed with carrot juice, 4 oz cabbage juice to 8 oz carrot juice, 3 times daily.

Fighting Fatigue Chronic fatigue is a sign that the body’s batteries have run down and resistance is lowered, so it should be taken as a warning that disease may occur at any time. It is mainly due to a critical deficiency of active enzymes in the diet and an overload of “dead”, processed, overcooked foods eaten in incompatible combinations. These typical modern diets starve the cells of nutrition and energy, and allow toxic wastes to build in tissues. The body is then unable to generate energy for work or play.

Beneficial Foods & Juices:

Pecans - an excellent source of vitamin B6 which is essential for all nervous functions and helps the body to use amino acids sourced from consumed proteins. All vital functions are controlled by the nervous system so pecans provide the element needed by nerves to generate functional energy and regulate the body. Take 10-15 raw pecans daily.

Carrot, beet, cucumber juice - provides a strong boost of active enzymes and organic nutrients to the bloodstream. Alkalizes and cleanses the kidneys which improves blood quality and helps relieve fatigue. Mix 10oz/ 3oz/ 3oz, 1-2 pints daily. Raw egg yolk - a great source of organic lecithin which is a major component of brain and nerve tissue. It also helps stimulate sluggish adrenal glands which helps fight fatigue. Take 2 yolks daily, blended into carrot juice.

MORE BETTER! is not always

If you need an excuse to miss a few trips to the gym or a couple of those spinning classes over the Christmas holidays, you need wait no longer as the facts below clearly show, more is not always better! Exercise is like a drug, if you don’t have enough, you get no benefits, if you have too much, you have problems. Shin splints, heel spurs, tendonitis are among the common overuse injuries that are seen in people who over exercise. Some training days should be intense, some days not so intense as exercise is a stressor. If it’s too much, the body can break down. Extreme fatigue, irritability, moodiness, an elevated resting heart rate, fever, and an inability to work your earlier level are among the signs that you’ve overdone it. Other symptoms of overtraining can include constant headaches, sleeplessness and severe muscle soreness, as well as diminished performance. There are so many benefits to exercise, but if you’re exercising excessively even the greatest benefits, like positive mood and better sleep, start to fall away. So use this Christmas to take a break from exercise. You don’t have to feel guilty. If you have been training all year, a break is the best thing you can do for your body. It will allow for more positive results when you start up training again in the New Year!
