Tumors


About
Tumors are extra tissue growths that can be malignant (cancerous) or benign (non-cancerous). Malignant tumors may spread quickly and need to be cared for immediately.


Notes
  • Make sure you are taking supplements for overall good health. If you are not taking these basic supplements, we recommend Enfuz from Vitabase. When you take a small packet of pills each day, you get all the basic nutrition you need. Each packet contains a multi-vitamin, CoQ10 (for heart health), Omega 3, Vitamin D-3, a probiotic, and a powerful set of antioxidants to help your body fight off disease.
  • Get immediate treatment for malignant tumors. Your doctor will be able to help you determine the best method of treatment for you.
  • Getting benign tumors removed is usually a good idea.
  • If tests indicate a lack of iron, supplementation is recommended. Lack of iron may contribute to tumors. Iron supplements should not be consumed by cancer patients.
  • Some studies seem to indicate that garlic supplements may be good for shrinking tumors.
  • Visit your doctor for regular check-ups. After 40, it is a good idea to do routine tests for breast, cervical, prostate, colon, and skin cancers.


Advice
  • Completely stay away from the following foods: junk food, processed refined foods, salt, sugar, peanuts, saturated fats, and white flour. The following substitutions are acceptable: whole wheat or rye for white flour; sea salt, potassium, or kelp for salt; and molasses or maple syrup for sugar. Only herbal teas are allowed. Refrain from alcohol and caffeine.
  • Diet should contain at least seven servings of whole-grain foods daily. Mix up the grains so you are getting five different types of grain weekly.
  • Do not drink tap water. Consume only spring water or steam-distilled water. Also, be make sure you do not take a bath in water that contains chlorine, as it can damage your body by just soaking in it.
  • Fasting is recommended.
  • Go easy on the dairy products. Occasionally you may have yogurt, kefir, or raw cheese.
  • Half of your diet should be raw fruits and vegetables. Organic foods are best. Consuming raw nuts and seeds, low-fat yogurt and whole-grains is beneficial. Substitute soy protein for animal protein and sea salt for regular table salt. Stay away from processed or packaged foods, white flour, sugar, and non-yogurt dairy products.
  • In order to boost your immune system, include a lot of garlic and onions in your diet. Garlic supplements are available, if desired.
  • Include fresh beet juice, carrot juice, asparagus juice, and fresh cabbage juice regularly in your diet regimen. Also include fresh fruit juices from apples, black currants, grapes, and black cherries.
  • Include the following in your diet: unpolished brown rice, nuts, seeds, grains, millet cereal, bran, oat, and wheat.
  • Obtain anthocyanins (antioxidants) by consuming tart cherries, cherry pies, cherry jams, and cherry juice (without sugar).
  • Sprouts should be lightly cooked. Wash and eat alfalfa raw.
  • Stay away from animal protein, lunch meat, hot dogs, and smoked or cured meat. Broiled fish several times a week is acceptable when your health is in good condition.
  • The following vegetables are also an important part of your diet: Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, broccoli, spinach, cabbage, pumpkin, yams, squash, and carrots. Also include plenty of blueberries, grapes, strawberries, cherries, legumes, peas, lentils, raspberries, apples, cantaloupes, Brazil nuts, red beans, plums, and oranges. Your body will need the extra antioxidants (from certain fruits) and chlorophyll (from green plants) to combat the illness.
