The best food against cancer is the same as those that make us healthy. Its not a secret that cancer cells love sugar. Its only food is sugar.
- Eat whole, natural, non-processed foods
- Definitely no additional salt or sugar. Too sweet or salty foods increase cancer progression. LOW SODIUM HIGH POTASSIUM DIET is the key.
- Eating meat (including fish and seafoods) is NOT ALLOWED in the first 6 months of treatment. Organic eggs and beans and nuts can replace protein requirements.
- NO milk, but if you can’t, Eat whole, naturally-produced milk products from goats, preferably raw or KEFIR,
Absolutely NO to the 5 five whites:
- white flour products, such as pasta, breads
- white rice
- white (iodized salt)
- Avoid all refined sweeteners such as sugar, dextrose, glucose and high fructose corn syrup as well as artificial sweeteners, like Aspartame, Splenda.
Use only traditional fats and oils, extra virgin olive oil, flax oil and the tropical oils—coconut.
Avoid all Trans fatty Acids and hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated fats and oils like all vegetable oils made from soy, corn, safflower, canola or cottonseed, margarine and vegetable shortening.
BUDWIG DIET: 1 cup cottage cheese + 6 tablespoons of flax seed oil + honey and/or fruits to taste.
Eat fresh fruits and vegetables, preferably organic, in salads and soups, or lightly steamed.
Use whole grains (Brown or Red Rice), legumes and nuts that have been prepared by overnight soaking, sprouting or sour leavening to neutralize phytic acid and other anti-nutrients.
Use herbal teas and Avoid coffee and Black teas
Cook only in stainless steel, cast iron, glass or good quality enamel
EAT lots of mushrooms, such as maitake, crimini or take mushroom extracts.
DO NOT EAT artificial and food additives, especially MSG, hydrolyzed vegetable protein and aspartame, which are neurotoxins. Most soups, sauce and broth mixes and commercial condiments contain MSG, even if not so labeled.
For juicing and eating raw vegetables and fruits: soaked in a gallon of tepid water with 1-2 tablespoon of Del Monte Pineapple vinegar or other fermented vinegar (not artificially made vinegar) for 15 minutes OR ozone for 20 minutes. If you disregard this step, be ready to have amoebiasis anytime soon.
If you feel constipated: Eat 5 fingers of Okra at bedtime. (to digest mucus stuck to the intestines which prevents people from absorbing nutrients properly.)
General Juice Recommendations:
Ozonate all fruits and vegetables for at least 20 mins to remove bacteria, fungi, insecticides and other toxins. This also makes it last longer in storage.
USE carrots as base and mix with vegetables and fruits according to taste and season.
Broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, lettuce, cucumber, singkamas, bell peppers
green leafy vegetables ie malunggay, spinach, celery, wheatgrass
Sprouts such as monggo bean sprouts, alfalfa, green pea sprouts,
blackberries, blueberries, strawberries, green apples, bell peppers, watermelon, pears, lemon, lime and pineapples esp the core. Berries especially blueberries contains massive amounts of antioxidants and anti-tumor phytochemicals.
It is good not to remove the peels from the vegetables as they contain a lot of phytochemicals and minerals. General rule is the more different colors the better.
Malunggay/ Ampalaya Juice: 2oz three times a day. Malunggay increase iron stores, ampalaya lowers blood sugar. Put 1 or 2 carrots only to avoid high blood sugar.
WHEATGRASS: Wheatgrass juice is essential to your health esp. if you are sick. you have to slowly start at 1 ounce per day and increase to 4-5 ounces when you are able to tolerate it. Drink the juice immediately after juicing, and take in sips rather than gulping it.
Beets or Beet Root are excellent not only as a blood purifier, but also has been shown to have a unique property of increasing oxygen utilization by the body, sort of like natural steroids, making the body produce more energy with the same amount of oxygen.
Turmeric (Curcumin), the juice of turmeric can be extracted by pounding it. Turmeric can be taken with food to increase its absorption. Turmeric is one of the few that has shown to have an effect on the tumor cells growth (by inhibiting its cell replication, chromosomal and genetic pathway repairs leading to cancer cells to commit suicide). Curcumin, the major component of turmeric has a very high activity against cancer cells. Its almost like a shotgun to tumor cells. It can also be cooked with food or in soups and rice meals. The only problem is that its absorption is very low so to take turmeric, you need to take extra virgin coconut oil and mix with black pepper powder.
Cabbage Juice: Cabbages (broccoli and cauliflower too) contain high amounts of thiocyanates that are toxic to cancer cells esp. breast and ovarian cancer lines. However, thiocyanates are also toxic to thyroid cells. It is therefore imperative that when you are taking cabbage juices, Lugol’s solution is part of your daily regimen.
In addition, purple cabbages contain one of the highest amounts of antioxidants by weight basis. So if you want to get the best amounts of antioxidants, always include purple cabbages.
Hippocrates Soup (rich in Potassium):
To make the Hippocrates special soup, the following vegetables should be thoroughly washed, not peeled, but into cubes, covered with water, and cooked under low fire for three (3) hours. Put everything through a food processor; allow only a few fibers and peels to remain. The result is a thick, creamy soup.
- 1 medium celery knob (root). If celery root is not in season, substitute 3 or 4 stalks of branch celery.
- A small amount of parsley1-1/2 lbs of tomatoes
- 2 medium onions
- 1 medium parsley root (rarely available; omit if not)
- 2 small leeks (if not available , substitute 2 additional medium onions)several cloves of garlic
- 1 lb of potatoes
Let it cool down and store air-tight containers in the refrigerator for not more than 2 days. Take 2 cups per day.
Powerful tea combo
Best tea with the highest amounts of antioxidants are Lemongrass, Hibiscus, Rooibos, Chamomille, Dandelion and Rosehip. My best advice is lemongrass with turmeric, alternate with dandelion and chamomille tea esp at night to give you the stress relief of the daily grind.
Best herbs for its antioxidant and anti-tumor properties:
Best fruits for cancer:
- ALL berries (blueberries, strawberries, cranberries, blackberries)
- Amla (indian gooseberries)
