Prevention is the best defense against cancer, but many people don’t know that certain foods, herbs and supplements can reduce and help reverse cancer. Although there can be little doubt about natural herbs, research shows that some of them have powerful anti-cancer properties and have no damaging side effects. Actually, many of the chemotherapies used in treating cancer were developed from natural substances. The web-series Kick Cancer in the Can provides beneficial information on the natural herbs that help prevent cancer.   Turmeric Turmeric contains a powerful cancer-fighting substance known as polyphony Curcumin.

Five Organic Food That Help in Managing Cancer

By on Mar 20, 2016 in Blog, Healing Tools | 0 comments

Now and then, people are diagnosed with cancer and often wonder how their lifestyle would be. In case you have a history of cancer in your family or are currently battling with the condition, you do not have to change your lifestyle. However, your diet can make a huge difference in your battle with cancer. Amid all the existing controversies, there are organic foods proven to boost one’s ability to fight off cancer, protect your health, and reduce the risk of cancer. Broccoli Broccoli contains a sizable amount of sulforaphane, one of the best cancer fighting properties. Sulforaphane boosts the body’s protective enzymes and plays a significant role in getting rid of cancer-causing chemicals. It also targets cancer stem cells, mainly those that aid in tumor growth. Broccoli helps fight breast cancer, liver cancer, skin cancers, as well as bladder cancers. Berries It is worthwhile to eat at least a cup of berries a day to increase the amount of vitamin C in your body. Berries contain high amounts of phytonutrients referred to as anthocyanins. Anthocyanins reduce the rate at which premalignant cells produce and stop the formation of new blood cells. Berries are essential for those with esophageal, colon and even skin cancer. Tomatoes Tomatoes are rich in lycopene, a powerful antioxidant that helps in getting rid of free radicals that damage DNA. Lycopene, from cooked vegetables, plays a big role in reducing endometrial cancer cell reproduction. Endometrial cancer leads to more than 7,500 fatalities a year. Additionally, the vegetables are recommended for people with lung, prostate and stomach cancers. Walnuts People with breast cancers can add nuts to salads, cereals, and other dishes. They contain phytosterols known to block estrogen receptors and slow down the cell’s growth. Individuals with prostate cancer can also eat walnuts. Ensure that you have at least an ounce of walnuts a day to reap the benefits. Garlic Allicin, an active ingredient present in garlic, stops the blood supply formation for tumors. Two to three raw cloves of garlic per day also kill microbes and yeasts. It also contains other active ingredients including selenium, tryptophan, and sulfur that act as anti-inflammatory. Garlic is essential for people with breasts, colon and stomach cancers.  ...
