Water Ionizer Benefits: Cancer – a Paradigm Shift
Today’s article is written by a friend of mine, Mauris Emeka. Mauris has given me permission to reprint the following article in its entirety. Mauris is a very good author, and I encourage you to really take the time to read what he says here. He hits the nail on the head!
Cancer — a Paradigm Shiftby Mauris Emeka Nov. 2010
Statistics are often presented attempting to show that progress is being made in the battle against cancer. But regardless of how the numbers are presented, the bottom line is that cancer (in all of its forms) is fast overtaking heart related diseases as the number one cause of death in America. One hundred years ago one out of 33 people were diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. Today one person out of three will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime, and that ratio continues to grow. Cancer is affecting more and more people and at ever younger ages.
The malignant tumor commonly referred to as cancer is in reality an indication of a process within the body that has gone amiss — a malfunctioning process that needs to be halted. Removing the tumor symptom (whether it’s done with surgery or with drugs) does not stop the process that caused the tumor to appear in the first place. In fact, eliminating the tumor is similar to swatting mosquitoes when what is needed is to eliminate the nearby swamp that breeds the mosquitoes. The good news is that, given the right commitment to dietary and lifestyle changes, it is possible to eliminate the ‘swamp’ — e.g., the malfunctioning process that gives rise to cancerous tumors. With cancer it is not enough to merely focus on the effect. Instead, the major concern needs to be on the cause of this disease at the cellular level. To be sure, there needs to be a paradigm shift in the way we think about and respond to cancer.
Consider the following well-researched information as a starting point:
I. Change the environment in your body to make it a lot less acidic and more alkaline. Cancer thrives in an acid environment; and on the other hand your body functions best when its major fluids and most internal organs are slightly alkaline. Remember to drink enough water during the day, and try to drink water that is slightly alkaline.
II. Eat less cooked foods and a lot more live plant-based foods, especially a variety of deeply colored fruits and vegetables. In addition to excellent nutrition they are high in fiber, rich in enzymes that facilitate digestion, and they insure a healthy acid/alkaline pH balance.
III. Make an effort to greatly strengthen the immune system, because it is our primary defense against cancer.
IV. Remember to consume some foods each day that reduce inflammation, because inflammation adversely affects the immune system as well as the acid/alkaline balance in the body. Turmeric spice, aloe vera gel fresh from the aloe leaf, and fermented soy — these are excellent anti-inflammatory foods.
V. Do things that cause more oxygen to be introduced into your body at the cellular level, because cancer cannot thrive where there is an abundance of oxygen. (Dr. Otto Warburg, a German scientist, won the Nobel prize in 1931 for discovering that cancer cells are anaerobic, meaning that they generate energy without the need for oxygen). On the other hand, healthy cells thrive on oxygen, and deep breathing is one way to bring in more oxygen into the body. Also, eat raw green vegetables, and drink fresh squeezed juice from deep green leafy vegetables (like collards, kale, and Swiss chard greens). These greens are rich in chlorophyll, and chlorophyll enhances oxygen circulation.
VI. Cleanse your body. Make a serious effort to detoxify, because it greatly enhances your body’s ability to heal itself. Coffee enemas and ESSIAC tea are especially helpful for internal cleansing. (Tenzing Momo is an herb store in Seattle, WA that sells the herbal ingredients that make up ESSIAC tea).
VII. Take steps to reduce stress. Meditation, prayer, and moderate exercise — all are very helpful.
VIII. Eat primitive, that is, eat a high percentage of raw foods and whole foods. Among other things, this introduces more fiber into the body and insures better bowel regularity (stimulating 3 to 4 movements daily). Otherwise, bowel sluggishness contributes greatly to increased acidic body chemistry.
In closing, it’s time we stop thinking of cancer as some sort of localized disease, like a skinned knee, and thinking that if we detect and destroy a tumor symptom early enough then the problem is solved. It is not enough to merely manage tumor symptoms. We are dealing with a chronic metabolic disease that cries out for a holistic response, to include fundamental changes in our diet and lifestyle. It is very important that we begin taking greater personal responsibility for our health and wellness, and commit to consuming a much higher percentage of unrefined, unprocessed, whole, natural, and plant-based foods.
Mauris Emeka has authored and published 2 books about diet and cancer: “Fear Cancer No More”, copyright 2002; and “Cancer’s Best Medicine”, second edition, copyright 2008. See www.cancernomore.com .
By the way, if you do the things Mauris recommends to help eliminate the threat of cancer, you will also be doing the same right things that will help ward off all the other conditions related to an acidic body: acid reflux, gout, colds/allergies, intestinal disorders, etc.
