Detox our body to be healthy

Detox is a key function of our body. Its cleansing system consists of the colon, the liver, the kidneys, the bladder, the blood, the lymph and the skin. Every day, the body needs to have toxins or harmful and unwanted substances filtered and removed through these organs.

We need to create hundreds of enzymes, vitamins and many organic molecules to help absorb what is good for the body and eliminate toxins, chemicals and wastes that should not exist in humans.

The liver and the colon are the main cleansing organs, but the kidneys, lungs, lymphatic system and skin are also important in the body’s complex detoxifying system. If every day we eat, drink and breathe in too much toxins for the body to clean up, the poison accumulated in the body weakens our  immune system. As a consequence, the body can not eradicate cancer cells that emerge every day. The organs in the body also get weakened, losing the ability to complete their functions. The body becomes sick … Accumulating toxins in our body not only cause cancer but also  all chronic diseases, from diabetes, cirrhosis, kidney failure, Alzheimer’s to rheumatism, heart attacks…

Therefore, detoxification  is a very important step in fighting against cancer and chronic diseases.

Many people had to treat cancer over and over again but by detoxification they were finally free of cancer.  Like Dr. Renee Wellhouse. When she was a 21-year-old student, she had breast cancer. She underwent surgery to remove both breasts but the cancer returned. From 1971 to 1985, she had to undergo 14 operations, including thyroidectomy and hysterectomy. By 1985, she was so sick that doctors told her to have a leg amputated and a liver transplant, even though she was also on very strong prescribed drugs. A lady her Bible study group told her she did not need a leg amputation and gave her a book about body cleanse. She did not believe how this woman could know more than her doctors. But during a holiday where there was nothing to read she had a look at it. Once started she could not put it down and decided to throw away all the prescribed medicine and to avoid drugs from then on. She began the detoxing method as directed. As a result, she got rid of cancer for good without leg amputation or liver transplant. She turned to natural medicine, became a naturopathic doctor, earned a PhD in nutrition and practiced medicine to help thousands of people with cancer.

Bollinger, who initiated the documentary series “The Truth About Cancer,” included the above detox method and healthy diet in “Cancer- Step Outside the Box” and “The 31 day Home Cancer Cure”. Thousands of people suffering from terminal cancer became cancer free by following the instructions in these two books.

To effectively detoxify the body, we need to cleanse the colon first, because when the colon is filled with poison, toxins are reabsorbed into the bloodstream. When the blood contains too many toxins, the liver is overloaded. The liver must work overtime day and night and will be exhausted, leading to various chronic diseases. The liver has to transfer toxins that need to be eliminated to kidneys.  Kidneys of course are not happy to with extra work handed down but  try hard. Gradually, the kidneys are weakening, causing chronic back pain and other symptoms such as sweating palms, bags under the eyes, frequent urination and bladder infection. From the colon, toxins if not eliminated are reabsorbed into the blood, passed to liver then the kidneys, the bladder and the lymph systems.

Therefore, it is necessary to detox in correct order. First of all, detox the colon, eradicate parasites, cleanse the kidneys, detox the liver, gallbladder and eventually cleanse the blood.

Colon cleanse:

Dr. Richard Schulze, a renowned specialist in natural medicine, said that after 20 years of experience he found 80 percent of diseases including cancer disappeared within 2 weeks of colon cleansing. Detoxing the colon mainly includes broccoli juice, no fruits, no other foods and daily enema or colonic.

However, the colon will become blocked and filled with toxins again if foods and drinks are still not healthy. The problem is not just cleansing, but also the restoration of a healthy immune system in the digestive tract with friendly bacteria. Friendly bacteria often die because of chemicals, tap water, antibiotics and other toxins. After colon cleansing, it may be necessary to take probiotics and  raw fermented vegetables – including Vietnamese pickles, natto or miso, Japanese and Korean kimchi – because they increase friendly bacteria in the digestive tract.

Parasites :

We often think that only in underdeveloped countries are people infected with parasites . Scientists have identified more than 300 species of “parasites thriving in the United States today, including pinworms, tapeworms, hookworms, ringworms, whipworms, roundworms and heart worms”(Bollinger). They estimate 90 % of Americans have parasites in the body without knowing it. According to Dr Hazel Parcells, “worms are the most toxic agents in the human body. They are one of the primary underlying causes of disease and are the most basic cause of a compromised immune system” (Cited by Bollinger). Parasites create conditions for many diseases to develop, including cancer. It draws the body’s tonic, it drinks your blood, it excretes the poison. Toxins travel into the bloodstream, weakening the immune system. Dr. Hulda Clark, author of three best-seller “The cure for all cancers”, “The Cure for all diseases” and “The cure for HIV and AIDS” discovered every cancer case she treated seemed to have  two predisposing factors:

First, the patient has a parasite or human intestinal fluke.

The second is that in the patient there are some solvents and toxins.

The two together set up the conditions needed for the onset of cancer.

As Dr Clark says, once the parasite is eliminated and diet changed, patients find their health improved significantly within a week.

Herbal remedies to eradicate parasite include wormwood, black walnut hulls and cloves supplements taken together or as recommended by Dr. Clark. Foods killing parasites are mainly pumpkin seeds, onions, garlic, coconut oil and papaya juice.

The kidneys are responsible for processing the blood and filtering out waste products such as mercury, lead, acne, copper and other toxins and excess water. Waste and excess water become urine, which flows to the bladder  and stays there until urination. When overloaded with toxins, kidneys and bladder malfunction leading to  waste and urine retention. The salts in the urine build up on the inner surfaces of the kidneys eventually form kidney stones. Cleansing the kidneys can help dissolve the deposits and stones inside them. Herbal remedies recommended include barberry, nux vomica, celery seeds (Bollinger). The main kidney cleansing foods are watermelon and fresh apple juice.

Detoxifying the liver is critical. Most of our liver is congested and overloaded. So our health will improve significantly after cleansing the liver just like after colon cleansing. Effective herbal remedies include milk thistle and dandelion root extracts or teas.

Liver cleansing foods are  fresh whole apple juice, olive oil, garlic, green tea, grapefruit, fruit and vegetable smoothies.

Blood contains many toxins and fats that must be removed. If not they form a lining on the inner walls of blood arteries, veins and capillaries. Blood vessels can be come clogged, brittle and restrict blood flows to the body organs. The blood can’t perform its functions adequately. Oxygen supply to cells of the body  is inadequate, providing an environment for cancer cells to thrive because cancer does not like oxygen.

Herbal remedies include the use of Red Clover , Burdock Root, Poke Root, Yellow Dock Root, Goldenseal, and Oregon Root.

Foods that help blood cleansing are lemon, orange, apple, kiwi, pineapple, high fibre foods such as flaxseed, oat meal, raw vegetables including green leafy vegetables and peas. Purdue University recommends taking a few drops of fresh lemon juice in warm water every morning to help filter out toxins and waste in the blood.

During the cleansing it is absolutely essential that we

  1. Do not eat meat or processed foods
  2.  Do not eat anything after 9 pm
  3. Do not eat more than 1 percent of a gram of salt
  4. Brush the skin every day
  5. Drink 6 – 8 cups (1.5 – 2 litres) of filtered water per day  – or 0.300 litre of  water for every 10 kilograms of body weight.
  6. Massage the abdomen on top of the large intestine
  7. If possible, sauna 30 minutes a day for sweating.
  8. Do an daily enema

I will summarise some of the prevalent methods of detox and discuss their feasibility in the next articles.

Diet against cancer

Diet against cancer

Please help spread the information on diet against cancer to help people who still think wrongly that cancer is a death sentence

Foods to avoid

Foods with high glucemic index to avoid include  white sugar, croissants, white bread, bagels, white rice, glutinous rice, rice pasta / rice noodles / rice noodles and rice cakes, sweets, cornflakes, rice bubbles, ice cream, wine, beer, potatoes…

Reason : Glucose not only feeds cancer cells but also creates cancer cells. It also weakens the immune system because it blocks vitamin C from entering the white blood cells. White blood cells are the main cells of the immune system that need 20 times more vitamin C than normal cells.

Artificial sugar (aspatame, sucralose) also causes cancer. Therefore we should avoid foods and drinks containing artificial sugar especially diet sodas.

Products containing glutamate or glutamine include sweeteners, black beans, mushrooms, soy products, caseinate. Reason: Cancer cells also need glutamine (precursor of glutamate) to survive and grow.

Processed foods because they contain hundreds of chemicals for long-term preservation and good taste … All are toxic to the body and cause cancer. It is therefore advisable to avoid all processed foods, including restaurant foods. There are no rice noodle soups “phở”  without MSG at restaurants,  Of course this is not a permanent measure. After cancer disappears, it is sometimes ok to eat out and consume your favourite dishes .

All types of meat including beef, pork, chicken, shrimp and fish. In 2005-2006, research by Dr Dean Ornish and other researchers showed that the condition of prostate and breast cancer patients who continued to eat meat and fish got worse in just 12 days. On the other hand, the condition of the group of patients who switched to eating whole vegetables  improved.

The first reason is that when eating fish meat, the liver  secretes insulin like growth factor 1 (IGF 1), a hormone that causes cancer cells to grow.

The second reason is that fish, red meat and eggs contain a lot of methionine. Many types of cancer, especially colon cancer, breast cancer, uterine cancer, blood cancer, skin cancer need methionine to survive. In the plants, only beans contain the most methionine, but only half that of red meat and eggs, and one fifth that in chicken and fish. The amount of methionine in vegetables is just half the amount of methionine in the beans. Fruits do not have methionine. Not only is avoiding important  but it is also important to avoid  all dairy products, including cheese, yogurt and yogurt.

Foods to eat plenty :

Fresh organic fruits and vegetables, ie, not contaminated with chemicals or pesticides.

Fruits are sweet and contain lots of sugar but also other nutrients, especially fibre to slow down blood sugar absorption rate. Fruits and green leafy vegetables consist of a lot of substances we can not absorb (for example, insoluble fibre) but are needed to feed microorganisms in the digestive tract, thus enhancing digestion and strengthening the immunity system. Organic vegetables and fruits provide the body with plant nutrients that are antioxidant and help regulate cellular life cycle.

The best fruits against cancer are black raspberry, fig  because these two fruits have the most anti-carcinogenic constituents that kill cancer cells. Red grapefruit is similar to mulberry and figs. However, all organic green fruits and vegetables are anti-carcinogenic because they have to develop protection against fungi.  On the other hand  vegetables sprayed with insecticides and pesticides  lack the ability to fight diseases.

According to Dr. David Jockers, 8 nutrients that inhibit cancer metastasis  include ursolic acid, vitamin D, curcumin, EGCG (epigallocatechin-3-gallate), sulforaphane, quercetin, apigenin and luteolin. The following vegetables are listed as containing many of these substances.

  • Ursolic acid is rich in holy basil, apple peel, oregano, and bilberries. Ursolic acid was found to “disrupt cancerous activity by destroying the survival mechanisms that cancer cells are reliant upon” (David Jockers)
  • Sun exposure is the best way to increase vitamin D. Vitamin D has proven to prevent cancer growth, growth and metastasis including prostate, rectum, breast and skin cancers.
  • Turmeric is a curcumin rich spice. Many clinical trials have shown that curcumin inhibits the proliferation of cancer cells in a wide variety of cancers. These  include breast, uterus, ovary, kidney, bladder, brain, blood, colon, pancreas, liver and lung cancers; andnon-Hodgkin lymphoma.
  • Green tea is an EGCG-rich drink. EGCG prevents cancer from spreading  by binding to the 67LR protein receptor station as a cancer-causing protein. It also pushes cancer cells into the doorways of the cellular life cycle, helping to eradicate cancer cells.
  • Broccoli sprouts, broccoli,  kale  and cauliflower are rich in sulforaphane. They reduce inflammation and prevent the development of cancer by strengthening the body’s natural detoxification pathways to eradicate toxins and enhance the immune response. They are effective for breast cancer, prostate cancer, spleen cancer, colon cancer and stomach cancer.
  • Vegetables with plenty of quercetin include onions, capers, blackberries, raspberries, black tea, green tea, dark cherries, cocoa powder Kale, apple and parsley, coriander … Quercetin  stimulates detoxification and suppresses the spreading of cancer cells.
  • Foods rich in apigenin include parsley, grape fruits, onions, oranges, chamomile tea, celery, sunflower sprouts, broccoli sprouts and broccoli. Apigenin inhibits the invasion of cancer cells into new tissues and prevents tumour growth. It also help eliminate toxins from the body and is used widely to keep stomach, kidneys, liver and blood in healthy state.
  • Foods rich in luteolin include green peppers, chamomile and celery. Luteolin inhibits proliferation of cancer cells by suppressing cancer-causing enzymes, preventing carcinogens from accumulating in new tissue, and eliminating toxins. Luteolin is therefore an effective antioxidant food that has the effect of preventing cancer from spreading and metastasizing in the body.

Your area may not have all of the above vegetables and fruits. As all fresh vegetables and fruits have anti cancer properties, feel free to use all the vegetables (red, purple, yellow) in your area to protect yourselves against cancer.
