Cancer - a different approach

With so many foods, herbs and therapies to fight Cancer we have to wonder why anyone ever dies from it. What I do know is that still most funding goes into profiting making drugs and medical procedures. The excuse by the medical profession is that there is not enough research to prove the effectiveness of more natural treatments. I call this protectionism of the medical profession and very profitable pharmaceutical industry. At a huge cost to human wellbeing. 

I am not saying do not use the medical profession and some of the drugs on offer. I am saying is never disregard the 10,000s of years of knowledge and understanding of human health and wellbeing. 

See the treatment of Cancer as a set of scales. We may get cancerous cells throughout our lives, the balance never allowing the progression of the dis-order or dis-ease in the body for symptoms or signs to ever show. When the balance is in favour of the Cancer growths then the disease progresses and sometimes to the point of death. The Cancer creates an environment for it progression and in most cases using our own body’s biological functions to support it growth and spread. 

We in effect without choice destroy ourselves. Our cells turn against us using our healthy cell functions to support the unhealthy cells resulting in our death of all our cells, cancerous or otherwise.

In our mind we fight to survive for our love ones while our own cells turn against us. I use that understanding in my treatment recommendations when taking on Cancer. I use the balance of scale to try to bring that balance into the side of survival. I never disregard your present medical approach. I simply see most medical approaches as supporting that healing balance of sale. 

If I try to explain all my thoughts on the one video it would be so long most would never watch it until the end. So I will try to do it via many short videos over time. 

I offer a number of free sign ups.on my website for those who can not afford the costs. I let you choose to pay or not. Andrewgadd.com 

Do remember, if you are given a free plastic bag you are more likely to not appreciate its true value so throw it away after one use. Pay just 5p for the same bag and suddenly we try to continue it use. Same bag but now it has a different value. 

Even a homeless person may re-use the bags to cover their feet to keep their only one pair of socks dry. They are learning to value anything even if it comes for free. 

So what I mean by the balance of scale.

For cancer to start you need cause. This I see as cellular damage/change from what we would see as a healthy cell to a damaged cancerous cell. 

Causes from infection, radiation, chemical exposure, including pollution, smoking, environment , injury, genetic weaknesses and diet. Or normally a combination of these causes. 

Once you have cancerous cells they need to progress. Age, overall health and fitness will be involved in the balance of scale. 

Negative aspects of the balance of scale,

 

Life style,

Including intake such as diet,

Amount of exercise,

Mental stress,

And all of the above possible causes,

infection, 

radiation, 

chemical exposure, 

pollution, 

smoking, 

environment , 

injury, 

genetic weaknesses

 

Positive aspects of the balance of scale

 

Changing to a healthy life style

Including a proactive anti cancerous diet,

Exercise designed to meet your abilities and need,

Stress management, depression and anxiety support,

Supporting infection prevention using holistic approach,

Looking at any radiation issues, 

Including chemical exposure,

Pollution exposure,

Giving up or at least reducing smoking,

Environment,

Injury support,

Looking at what possible genetic influences but unlikely to do much to change it. 

Taking into account your medical approach such as chemotherapy. 

 

What we know is that when you are first diagnosed with Cancer the balance of scale is in favour of the Cancer. So things need to change, it is just working out what needs to change and if we have time for the correct changes to meet the time limits of the disease progression. The skill is knowing what changes need to be made. Time is required to find them and for them to start working. 

You may think that if you smoke and then get lung cancer then just by giving up smoking you will heal. The smoking may of been of the cause or part of the cause,. However now the cancerous cells are progressing just giving up smoking is not going to help much. I am not saying that giving up smoking will not be required at some point otherwise you may continue to damage healthy cells and turn them cancerous again. So giving up smoking will be a long term objective. 

Every cancer even if it has the same name in the same area of the body as someone else it may have differences. Never two cancer being totally the same, so possibly responding differently to treatments. 

By bringing the balance of scale into a healthy cell function so even if you just slow the progression of cancerous growth it will help give a medical approach greater opportunity to treat the disease. Also could help support and strengthen your wellbeing from surgery, chemotherapy or other medical treatments. 

Two kinds of microbes in the Gut, Coprococcus and Dialister, were missing from the microbiomes of the depressed subjects, but not from those with a high quality of life. The finding held up when the researchers allowed for factors such as age, sex, or antidepressant use, all of which influence the microbiome. They also found the depressed people had an increase in bacteria implicated in Crohn disease, suggesting inflammation may be at fault.

 

What we do not know and would be where MY interest would be. Does depression through stress and physiology reasons damage the balance of these microbes?Some people have no real life stresses or physiological causes for their depression and/or anxiety.  Possibly that other causes of an imbalanced gut such as infection exposure or chemical influence maybe be the reason for their depression. However it makes sense that life issues causing extreme mental stress causes depression. But this study might explain how. So a process starts in the mind, causing an imbalance of healthy Gut microbes then causing a physical chemical imbalance in the brain as a result. 

So let’s talk Cancer and similar processes next, the reason I feel a possible link between the Gut and Cancer is that many of the foods known to improve the healthy Gut balance have also been linked with either treating  Cancer or preventatives. 

Gut Food - Foods For Good Healthy Gut Health

Suffering conditions such as Cancer or inflammation related disease you can benefit greatly from having healthy Gut. More interesting is that many of these foods are recommended for such conditions as well. 

So here’s our guide (in no particular order) to tasty foods that are also good for your insides.

  1. Yoghurt. Live yoghurt is an excellent source of so-called friendly bacteria, also known as probiotics. Look out for sugar-free, full-fat versions and add your own fruit for a tasty breakfast. Probiotics need to have some caution when on Chemotherapy. 

  2. Kefir.  This probiotic yoghurt drink is made by fermenting milk and is packed with good bacteria. It originated in the mountainous region between Asia and Europe, as well as Russia and Central Asia. It also makes a great addition to smoothies and soups, or you can use it as a base for salad dressing (add lemon juice and seasoning).

  3. Miso is made from fermented soya beans, plus barley or rice, and contains a range of goodies such as helpful bacteria and enzymes. A savoury paste used in dips, dressings and soup, it can also be used as a marinade for salmon or tofu. It’s a staple of Japanese cooking and suitable if you’re avoiding dairy.

  4. Sauerkraut.  This is finely chopped cabbage that has been fermented. This great source of probiotics, fibre and vitamins is best known as a German dish, but versions exist in Eastern and Central Europe. Choose a product that has not been pickled in vinegar, as that doesn’t have the same benefits. It’s delicious served with sausages.

  5. Kimchi.  This Korean speciality of fermented vegetables brings the benefits of probiotic bacteria along with vitamins and fibre. Use it as a lively side dish with meat, salad or eggs. It’s so popular that Koreans say “kimchi” in the same way that we say “cheese” when they have their photos taken.

  6. Sourdough.  This is very fashionable at the moment, but there’s a good reason for that. Made by fermenting the dough, it’s more digestible than regular bread and its energy releases slowly. It makes fantastic toast too.

  7. Almonds.  These have good probiotic properties, which means they are a treat for your gut bacteria – high in fibre, and full of fatty acids and polyphenols. A handful of almonds makes an excellent snack when you’re feeling peckish.

  8. Olive oil.  Gut bacteria and microbes like a diet of fatty acids and polyphenols. These are found in olive oil. Studies have shown that it helps reduce gut inflammation. Use it for salad dressing or drizzle it over cooked vegetables.

  9. Kombucha.  We all know water is crucial for gut health, but what else can you drink? Kombucha is a fermented tea drink thought to have originated in Manchuria that is full of probiotic good bacteria. It has a sharp, vinegary taste and can be used as a refreshing drink on its own or mixed with fruit and spices. It also makes the base for great cocktails.

  10. Peas.  Gut bacteria need fibre to flourish, so the more fruit and vegetables you consume the better. Peas are full of soluble and insoluble fibre to help keep your system in balance. Add peas to stir-fries, soups or salads.

  11. Brussels sprouts.  Much more than a festive staple, they contain the kinds of fibre that good bacteria like and sulphur compounds which help combat unhealthy bacteria such as H pylori. Most dark green vegetables are good. 

  12. Bananas.  One of nature’s handiest and healthiest snacks, bananas are full of the kind of fibre that good bacteria enjoy. They also contain healthy minerals. Can help with nausea when on Chemotherapy.

  13. Roquefort cheese.  Live, runny, smelly French cheese will give your gut bacteria a boost – but eat it in moderation. Add it to salads or spread it on your sourdough. Caution if on Chemotherapy. 

  14. Garlic.  Garlic, with its antibacterial and antifungal properties, can help keep “bad” gut bacteria under control and help balance yeast in the gut. Use it as a flavouring for savoury dishes.

  15. Ginger.  Fresh ginger can help in the production of stomach acid and it stimulates the digestive system to keep food moving through the gut. Add fresh grated ginger to soups, stews, smoothies or stir-fries. Pour boiling water on grated ginger to make refreshing ginger tea. Suck for mouth infections and tooth pain.
