Nutritional Therapy is Essential to Cancer Treatment
“He who does not know food, how can he understand the diseases of man?” – Hippocrates, the father of medicine (460-357 B.C)
A well-nourished person with cancer has a much better chance at recovery! Since more than 40% of people with cancer die from malnutrition, not from cancer, nutritional therapy is clearly an essential component in any comprehensive approach to cancer treatment. A moderately healthy nutritional program can increase life expectancy by 12 to 21 fold as well as increase the potential for complete remission. A strict, healthy nutritional program has much more spectacular results and rewards. AND – when combined with active detoxification, not only is cancer no longer produced but the immune system becomes available for defense, as it was intended.
If we owned a $ 450,000 automobile, there is no doubt that we would put the best quality fuel, change the oil every 2000 miles or so, rotate the tires etc. Now, if we were to take the key to that car and scratch the door, what would happen? The paint would come off, then it would rust, and ultimately it would corrode. If we were to take that same key and with the same force, scratch our forearm, what would happen? It would bleed, then it would scab over and ultimately it would heal!
Now, which is the better machine? Not only are our bodies better but we get to keep them longer.
Do we put the best fuel into them? No! Do we change the oil? No! Rotate the tires? No! Do we expect high performance? Yes!
That is irrational! Clearly, these same principles of common sense apply to us as well as to machines however we never received an owner’s manual. The natural laws that govern our biology are non-negotiable and the consequences are as sure as the sun rising tomorrow morning. It would be to our great benefit to know and understand these natural laws so that we might live according to them.
By living according to the laws which govern our biology, we reap the consequences of exuberant health. By violating these laws, we reap the consequences of disease and misery. It has been said that we are what we eat, but in reality, we are what we are able to digest. What would happen if one were to eat a healthy meal but be unable, due to illness, anger, fear, etc. to digest and assimilate that meal? It would quickly become a liability and require prompt elimination before it ferments, putrefies and become poisonous. Not only do we need to know what to eat, but also, when to eat.
It is imperative that we relearn what would have been our instincts regarding food and eat accordingly lest we continue to dig our graves with our teeth.
