Protect and repair your genes Cancer starts with the mutation of the genetic materials in the chromosome of the affected cell. It becomes a grossly abnormal cell that continues to multiply incessantly,Guest Posting devoid of the normal control mechanisms, to billions of cells which form tumours and invade other tissues, causing much pain, suffering.

So this is where my specific strategy begins. The key is to reverse this genetic damage. And the key to preventing cancer is to prevent the damage. It is obvious that this strategy must involve removing the predisposing or causative factors, if possible, and to empower the repair or healing systems of the body to do their work efficiently. Cancer results not only from the unabated genetic damage, but also from the failure of the prevention, surveillance and repair systems of the body that are meant to stop cancer cells from developing, or from surviving, multiplying, and spreading. The contributing factors can be genetic predisposition (for example, BRCA genes for breast cancer), hormonal (breast, ovarian, uterine and prostate cancers), infection (hepatitis virus for liver cancer and HPV for cervical cancer), free radical and chemical damage, radiation (including sun exposure), nutritional deficiency, and others. Spontaneous mutations do occur (like those that result in certain genetic diseases), but there is so much we can do to reverse or prevent mutations that result from the predisposing factors (except inherited genetic predisposition, though in the near future, gene therapy and genetic engineering may provide the answers). To protect your genes, first, you must prevent sun damage by avoiding excessive sun exposure. Cancer patients (other than those with skin cancer) do not often see this as an important strategy, but they should realise that skin free radicals add to the total free radical load and require plenty of antioxidants to neutralise, depriving that available for the rest of the body. Next, you have to avoid getting toxins into your body, especially through smoking, and unfortunately, also through the air that we breathe (the air is almost always polluted these days), and some foods that we eat (fruits and veggies that are contaminated with pesticides, and fish and meats contaminated with chemicals and heavy metals). You also have to get rid of as much of the toxins that are already in you. Our cells have to repair their chromosomes, which are continually damaged by free-radicals and chemicals. At the same time, we have to make millions of new cells daily to replace the dying cells. So the requirement for nucleic acid cannot be ignored. It is also an important item in my anti-ageing prescription. I use plant-derived nucleic acids as a supplement. Free radicals are the major culprit causing genetic damage, and antioxidants are their antidote. While fruits, veggies and green foods are excellent sources of cancer-fighting antioxidants, cancer patients need very high doses and will require supplementation. There are many important antioxidant nutrients they should take, but the ones I recommend are beta-carotene, vitamin C (in high doses), complete vitamin E8 (with all the eight vitamin E isomers), glutathione, and Ningxia wolfberry extract. I have previously written at length about the vitamins. Glutathione is the master antioxidant within the cell, and Ningxia wolfberry extract was introduced to me by my qigong sifu who hails from Ningxia Muslim Autonomous Region, China. Optimise and balance your hormones Some hormones influence the onset and progress of certain cancers. Breast, ovarian (most types), uterine, testicular and prostate cancers are influenced by hormones, and so hormones and hormone-analogues or their receptor-blockers are used in many cases. For the body to be healthy and the immune defence system working in the best possible way, all the hormones in the body must be present in the most healthy levels. The anti-cancer diet An anti-cancer diet is nutrient dense (low calorie but high nutrient content), with plenty of fruits and veggies (preferably fresh, raw, and organic) providing an abundance of protective nutrients and fibre. Go for dark veggies of various colours, for each variety has nutrients that others don’t have. You can eat tons of veggies without ever worrying of growing fat, because they are loaded with nutrients but have minimal calories. The only exceptions are the starchy ones, which are not actually vegetables anyway. If you take spinach, you will lose weight while you gain nutrients (more calories are required to chew, digest and absorb spinach than the calories it contains). Fruits are excellent sources of cancer fighting nutrients too, even though they contain more calories. However, these are nutrient-packed calories compared to the empty-calories of polished rice and refined sugar! Intake of red meat should be reduced, and burnt meat (BBQ or overfried), excess sugars and excess salt should be avoided. This diet is not only anti-cancer, it will also protect you against most of the chronic diseases like heart disease, stroke and diabetes, and will slow down your ageing.
