Cancer develops when the body’s normal control mechanism isn’t working properly and allows abnormal cells to form and divide at a rapid rate.
However, there are steps that individuals can take to optimize their health and immunity and fight against malignant growths.
Keep reading to learn 11 ways that you can treat cancer naturally.
1. Follow a Ketogenic Diet
A ketogenic diet promotes the consumption of high quantities of good fats and low amounts of carbohydrates. This is because healthy fats help fuel the body, whereas simple carbohydrates can increase glucose and feed cancer cells.
2. Spend Time in a Hyperbolic Oxygen Chamber
Patients often combine a ketogenic diet with the use of a hyperbolic oxygen chamber to decrease tumor growth rates, improve ketosis, and decrease glucose levels.
What’s more, 3 weekly sessions in a hyperbolic oxygen chamber decreases acidity within the body and increases oxygen supply to healthy cells.
3. Get More Nutrients With Juicing
Juicing raw vegetables provides powerful antioxidants and cancer-fighting properties that boost immunity. In fact, when cruciferous vegetable sprouts, such as kale, broccoli, and cauliflower sprouts, are used for juicing they produce phytochemicals that combat malignancy and signs of aging.
4. Eat Fermented Foods
One of the key benefits of fermented foods, like sauerkraut, kimchi, coconut water kefir, water kefir, coconut milk kefir, and apple cider vinegar, is that they provide healthy bacteria to the gut.
They also contain bacteroidetes, a bacteria that produces butyrate. This substance is of value because it possesses anti-cancer properties.
5. Increase Vitamin D Intake
Increasing your intake of vitamin D through supplements is another way to naturally treat cancer. That’s because vitamin D has anti-inflammatory capabilities and produces GcMAF proteins that regulate cancer cells and prevent them from multiplying.
6. Unleash the Power of Enzymes
Enzymes promote anti-inflammatory effects, stimulate anti-cancer substances, and assist in the removal of toxins from the body.
However, they need a stable environment to function properly, so it’s important to constantly replenish enzymes by eating a diet rich in raw fruits and vegetables, fermented vegetables, and legumes.
7. Spice up Your Food With Turmeric
Turmeric is a spice that’s commonly found in Indian cuisine, soups, and stews, and contains curcumin which is a powerful cancer-fighting agent. Additionally, researchers have found that turmeric’s anti-inflammatory effects rival that of over-the-counter medications like Tylenol.
8. Try the Budwig Protocol
Through the course of her research, which began in 1952, Dr. Johanna Budwig developed the Budwig Protocol to treat and cure cancer. It involves consuming quark (a soft, fresh cheese) and flaxseed oil to induce a chemical reaction that revitalizes healthy cells in the body.
In addition, the Budwig Protocol has been shown to decrease toxicity, increase oxygenation to cells, and increase detoxification pathways.
9. Undergo Various Forms of Detoxification
When our detoxification pathways become blocked, carcinogens can build up in the body.
Fortunately, we can participate in a wide wide range of activities and treatments to clear our systems of impurities.
They include: Exercise (increases oxygen flow); Infrared saunas (stimulates deep tissue for the release of carcinogens); Coffee enemas (expel gastrointestinal toxins); Dry brushing (increases lymphatic flow and glandular function); Anti-cancer diet (decreases toxic burden and inflammation; and Lemon or mineralizing water (balances the body’s natural pH).
10. Take in More Sunlight
It’s probably not too surprising that certain amounts of sunlight can benefit overall wellness and fight against cancer. It does so by boosting activity of healthy cells with naturally-sourced photons from the sun.
11. Consume Foods With Beta Glucans
Beta glucans are complex sugar molecules that have the ability to attack cancer and other foreign agents. Although they are not naturally produced by the body, we can reap their benefits by consuming yeast, mushrooms, fermented foods, oats, and barley.
