Cancer: Do You Really Need Chemo?
Written by: Lilla Bessenyei
More than a year ago, my father was diagnosed with cancer. We weren’t surprised by the bad news, only because he had discovered blood in his urine more than 5 years ago and also had a wart on his back that became a never-healing wound.
My dad didn’t want to undergo chemotherapy. He had 2 surgeries within a month. First, his bladder tumors and then his cancerous skin was removed.
We heard about Dr. Breuss and his work a long time ago. We were convinced that a juice fast could help you to beat many kinds of health problems, even serious ones, like cancer. My Dad wasn’t convinced about juice fasts and alternative methods, but he didn’t have a better idea.
At first, Dr. Breuss said that his medical procedures weakened the immune system and a juice fast shouldn’t be done, but would be a good idea 6 months later.
Thanks to God, my father is recovering right now; however, he had some backslidings because he went back to his old, unhealthy habits.
In October 2015, his doctor – who wasn’t happy that my dad chose a lifestyle change instead of chemotherapy – finally acknowledged that his diet worked. This spring he went back for another check and the doctor found some more tumors in his bladder; his cancer was very aggressive, so he needed another minor surgery.
This happened because my father stopped drinking juices and started consuming dairy products after the positive results in October.
Conclusion: if you want to stay healthy, you have to be consistent.
Here’re the things we changed in his lifestyle that have helped save my dad’s life:
Drinking juices is the best way to supplement your body. They can be absorbed in 15 minutes and are packed with energy, vitamins, minerals, enzymes and antioxidants. You can’t imagine a better alternative for giving your body the highest quality of nutrients in the shortest amount of time.
Nowadays my dad drinks 1-2 glasses of juice every day. His wound is healing and there is no blood in his urine.
I’d recommend drinking as much juice as you can daily, especially if you’re struggling with a serious illness. At least 2 glasses a day.
No juicer? No problem! Organifi Green Juice is a carefully selected blend of 11 different superfoods including turmeric, spirulina, lemon, mint, moringa and more. It was made specifically for people who want the benefits of juicing but without the hassle and cost of juicing on their own. Try it here.
2. No Sugar, No Oils
Tumor cells have more insulin receptors than normal ones. Dr. Breuss recommended quitting sugar and even reducing his fruit consumption. Processed sugar is not good for you in any circumstances. Fruits aren’t so bad, in fact, they are just the opposite; they are incredibly healthy. But in this particular situation called cancer, they should be avoided during the time of recovery.
Processed oils can also have an impact on your blood sugar levels and a very recent study has found that some kind of cancer cells can feed on oils.
I promise you, you can live without sugar and processed fats. Instead of using oils in every dish, try steaming or using water.
3. Baking Soda And Lemon Juice
Baking soda is one of the fastest ways to alkalize your system. An acidic environment is beneficial for cancer cells. Raising your PH levels can prevent metastasis and tumor growth.
Lemon juice has copious health benefits. It not only prevents and fights cancer, but it also has antifungal and antiparasitic effects.
My dad drank 1 teaspoon of baking soda in a glass of very warm water. 10 minutes later he drank a juice of half lemon with a glass of cold water. This makes a good start to your day.
4. Vegan Diet
Animal products are harder to digest. Excluding them from your diet takes off a heavy weight from your digestion. This energy can be used by your body to repair itself and recover. Plants are easy to digest and are full of phytochemicals, vitamins and minerals. Dairy consumption is linked to cancer; in fact, it can increase the risk of prostate and breast cancer.
Give the vegan diet a try. In case you feel that you can’t live without animal products, at least minimize the amount and try to eat less processed food.
Your health is not a game, it’s worth it to take the most serious efforts to preserve it.
I’m not a doctor, I’m a pharmacy student and my father is a pharmacist. I recommend you to educate yourself. There are amazing documentaries on this topic like The Truth About Cancer, or you can find useful information at Chris Wark’s YouTube channel, chrisbeatcancer.
