Recent findings suggest that the immune system is designed to eliminate cancer. According to Dr. Mercola, osteopathic physician and writer, when a person uses medical interventions (such as radiotherapy and chemotherapy) to eradicate the cancer, they end up damaging the immune system and it fails to respond appropriately destroying the chances of your body to heal itself naturally.
Unfortunately, mammograms, a specialized radiography that shows the contrast between normal tissue and tumors tend to increase the probability of women to perform medical procedures such as biopsies unnecessary. There is now a large amount of scientific evidence supporting the theory that your own immune system is your best weapon against cancer.
Nearly everyone has cancer cells and precancerous body but not everyone develops cancer. The difference is in the health of the immune system of each person. The cancer cell needs more than one mutation to develop. It needs the cooperation of other nearby cells and certain immune responses, and needs to be fed with hormones.
It is important to understand that strength and health of your immune system is an important factor in determining whether or not you will beat cancer once you have it.
One way to strengthen your immune system is to minimize your exposure to mammograms and other sources of ionizing radiation. The dose of radiation during an annual mammography test is twenty to twenty-five times higher than simple pulmonary radiography and it is proven that the organ of the body more sensitive to the carcinogenic effects of this test is the breast, compared with the lung, thyroid and bone marrow.
A more natural alternative approach to mammography is thermography, a painless, affordable, noninvasive, and safe, procedure where an infrared photography is taken from the body to detect heat from the tumor areas.
How to dramatically reduce your chances of getting cancer?
Eating a good diet rich in minerals, vitamins and antioxidant, reducing mental stress and exercising daily.
Start optimizing your vitamin D level, a steroid hormone that affects almost every cell in the body and one of the most potent anti-cancer agent. Vitamin D is able to enter cancer cells and trigger apoptosis or death of cancer cells.
For someone who is diagnosed with breast cancer it is recommended to keep a level of 70 to 100ng/ml of vitamin D per day and make an immediate detox of the liver through the use of enzymes, minerals, and complete elimination of sugar.
Vitamin A plays a role in preventing breast cancer. Your best sources are organic eggs and beef and chicken liver (coming from animals grown outdoors and fed organically).
The curcumin (the active agent in turmeric) is one of the most powerful spices to inhibit tumor formation. Green tea, seaweed, cruciferous vegetables and evening primrose oil also help prevent breast cancer.
Avoid all processed foods, and minimize sugar, grains and starchy foods.
Essential oils are of tremendous importance in maintaining breast health, especially sandalwood frankincense, rosemary and lavender. Besides inhibiting the cancer cells they work our mood, balance our emotions and pleasure and maintains skin health.
The better you take care of your immune system, the better it will look after you.
