With 44% of men and 39% of women now being diagnosed with cancer, it has become more important than ever to understand the foods that will not only nourish your body, but also detoxify it of any cancer causing agents.
Here are some of the most potent cancer destroying foods and herbs.
1. Sea Vegetables
Kelp, kombu, and nori are three of the most common sea vegetables with remarkable effects on cancer. They are one of the richest and most bio-available sources of iodine, a substance lacking in the average diet that is implicated in many patients with breast and ovarian cancer.
They are also rich in calcium andpotassium, as well as all minerals, which assist in promoting a very alkaline environment, which makes it very difficult for existing cancer to survive.
Chlorella and spirulina are two of the most potent algae and are proven cancer fighters.
Due to their incredible detoxification action (including binding to and eliminating heavy metals) and immune-boosting properties (by promoting the production of healthy gut flora and fighting candida overgrowth), they are a must have when healing cancer.
3. Medicinal Mushrooms
Medicinal mushrooms such as reishiand chaga have had a number of bioactive molecules, including anti-tumor agents, identified in their structure. These bioactive compounds include polysaccharides, alkaloids, tocopherols, phenolics, flavonoids, carotenoids, folates, ascorbic acid enzymes, and organic acids.
Studies show that long-term consumption of reishi prevents tumor proliferation and growth by increasing the level of antioxidants in an individual’s blood plasma while boosting the immunity of those suffering from advanced-stage cancer.
4. Aloe Vera
Research shows strong immunomodulatory and anti-tumor properties on polysaccharides in aloe vera, which means it boosts immune system function and destroys cancer tumors.
A study in International Immunopharmacology showed that aloe vera polysaccharides exhibited potent macrophage activating activities […]
