If there is one thing most of us can agree on, it’s that cancer is completely out of control and conventional therapies like chemotherapy and radiation are the most widely used “cancer killers” available to the general population. However, recent documentation on these conventional methods is now coming to light, and as a result, many have become jaded with the conventional cancer machine and are seeking more natural and affordable options.
Although one should never put a price on becoming well, there is the reality that not everyone can dole out thousands of dollars for effective treatments. In that vein, here are some of the more affordable and accessible options to heal from cancer, with less stress on your bank account.
Top foods and herbs
First of all, if you are wanting to heal cancer (or prevent it), a very broad solution is to make your diet nearly completely plant based and rooted in low sugar/starches and high in nutrient value. In addition to that, the easier it is for you to assimilate nutrients with as little energy required as possible, the better. This makes juicing, smoothies, soups, herbal teas, fermented foods and beverages, steamed vegetables, and tinctures a top priority.
Some of the top medicinal foods that one should strongly consider for incorporation into a cancer healing diet include:
- Sea vegetables (kelp, nori, kombu, etc)
- Algae (blue-green algae, chlorella, spirulina)
- Cruciferous vegetables (broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage)
- Aloe vera
- Medicinal mushrooms
For more information on why these are so powerful, and some great sources, read Top 8 Foods and Herbs For Healing Cancer.
In addition to these foods, you will also want to consider organic and fresh produce you can gather quite easily from a market, such as:
- Collard greens
- Brussels sprouts
- Berries (raspberries, strawberries, blueberries, blackberries)
- Granny Smith apples
A very easy way to incorporate these into your diet daily is through fresh salads and juices. For a juice recipe that incorporates many of these pieces of organic produce, read Mini Vacation Juice Recipe.
In addition to those foods, you may want to consider some other medicinal plants that can be used in teas and smoothies, such as:
- Pau D’Arco (tea)
- Schisandra (tea or smoothie)
- Reishi and Chaga (tea or smoothie)
- Flax seed (grind for smoothies, steep seeds in hot water for 6 hours for tea)
- Chia seeds (smoothies)
A very easy way to incorporate some of these elements into a smoothie, along with some of the top medicinal foods, check out the Superfood Smoothie Recipe.
To summarize, the easiest and most effective way to use all these foods and herbs is to consume the following daily:
- Fresh salads
- Fermented vegetables (sauerkraut)
- Fresh juice
- Superfood smoothie
- Blended soups (lots of garlic, onion, and cruciferous vegetables)
- Herbal teas
This will make sure you have ample nutrition with a low digestive load and minimal sugar intake which will give your body a chance to recover and start rebuilding your immune system, the front line for your defence against cancer. These foods and herbs are also some of the most affordable, accessible, and safest ways to fight cancer.
Of course, there are also the nutrients, therapies, and protocols one can consider in their fight against cancer, and I will address those in future articles. One thing is for sure, to beat cancer and live a good quality of life after, a lifestyle change needs to be adopted. If you want both, check out the THRIVE Online Holistic Health Program.
