Cancer is such a scary concept that hearing the word itself can send chills up your spine. To be honest, I used to have a phobia of getting cancer most of my teenage and young adult life. This is how powerful it can get into the psyche of our collective culture. But the point of this article is the opposite of instilling more fear.

But the point of this article is the opposite of instilling more fear.

I want to provide helpful tips so that you can take action and protect yourself, and perhaps feel a little bit safer.

Let me give you an all-too-common example of why cancer keeps coming back (or arrives in the first place)… most oncologists will tell you that diet doesn’t matter because they were not trained in nutrition in medical school.

However, diet absolutely matters because it helps create the internal environment for cancer to thrive or starve.

Chemo Can Create More Cancer

The toxic chemicals of chemotherapy and radiation also help create an environment within your body for cancer to come back and thrive. What most people don’t realize is that Chemo and all forms of radiation are carcinogenic, which means… they can cause cancer.

So the treatment that you think is helping you, can actually cause you more problems in the future. Here are some big mistakes which I have seen people making that fail to heal from Cancer or why Cancer will return in the future:

1.  Changing Your Diet:  This is the first and most important step to healing from cancer.

Improper diet is what led to Cancer in the first place. If you continue to eat sugar laden and processed foods when you have cancer, your chances of recovery will be slim to none.

Sugar makes cancer proliferate at exponential levels, so if you think you can continue eating the same junk you ate prior to your diagnosis and heal, you are sadly mistaken. Your diet must be overhauled completely even after you are healed from Cancer.

Once you are healed, you always need to be mindful of your diet. If you go back to eating the same way you ate prior to Cancer, Cancer will come back.

2.  Removing the Toxins: The root cause of cancer and many other chronic diseases are caused by Candida overgrowth, Parasites, and/or Biofilms.

If the root cause of the cancer is not eradicated, it will continue to proliferate within the body causing further health problems and possible cancer down the road. Cancer carries a lot of toxic effects throughout the body that need to be removed through proper detoxification.

Now, if you are trying to heal by adding chemotherapy and radiation, you are adding more toxins to your already toxic body. No matter if you are using a traditional approach or alternative healing, detoxification is imperative to proper healing.

You need to remove the root cause of disease from the body in order of the colon, candida, parasites, kidney, and liver to heal properly. I have seen many people that refuse to detox the body and still expect to be healed completely.

3.  Mixing/Changing Healing Protocols:  Many with Cancer will try anything to get well, naturally so. However, many alternative health protocols may be incompatible with one another.

So, it is important to do the research to make sure that the alternative protocols you are using are compatible with one another. I have also noticed that people with cancer will also change healing protocols very rapidly if they notice they aren’t working immediately.

Sometimes it takes awhile to heal and you need to be patient and give the protocol time to work.

4.  Taking Drugs: I have unfortunately witnessed many people in the end stages of Cancer who begin taking the painkillers that doctors prescribe.  These toxic drugs add to the toxins within the body and can stop the liver from doing its job of removing toxins.

These toxic drugs end up being the catalyst that leads to a quicker death.  Try a safer method of relieving the pain from Cancer. Did you know that coffee enemas help to rid the body of pain and remove the toxins from the liver?

These 4 mistakes are what I see most often with people who do not survive Cancer or those who get cancer multiple times in their life. In order to heal Cancer and keep your body healthy; Change your diet, detoxify the body, stick to a specific plan for healing, and don’t add toxic chemicals to the mix.
