Ways to Lower Cancer Risk Through Diet

A healthy start to the New Year is to use natural means to reduce cancer risk. Two key elements are bioidentical natural progesterone and a dedicated anti-cancer regime.

Dr Andrew Weil

A healthy diet can help the body in its efforts to heal itself, and in some cases, particular foods can lessen the risks of serious illness. To help reduce your risk of some types of cancer, try the following:

  1. Avoid polyunsaturated vegetable oils, margarine, vegetable shortening, all partially hydrogenated oils and all foods that might contain trans-fatty acids (such as deep-fried foods).
  2. Minimize or eliminate consumption of foods with added sugar.
  3. Increase omega-3 fatty acid intake by eating more cold-water oily fish, freshly ground flaxseed and walnuts.
  4. Reduce consumption of animal foods and try replacing them with plant-based proteins such as whole soy products.
  5. Use hormone-free, organically produced products whenever possible.
  6. Eat plenty of fresh vegetables and fruits.
  7. Eat shiitake, enokidake, maitake and oyster mushrooms frequently.
  8. Drink green tea daily.

Additional help:

Stress is a major factor in many illnesses as it makes us more vulnerable as our immune system is lowered or compromised.  Any actions you can take to reduce your stress load will improve your health: exercise that you enjoy such as walking, gardening, dancing, yoga or tai chi are all helpful. Relaxation when you take time for yourself by listening to music, reading a book, talking to friends or meditating regularly will bring those levels down.

Sulis produced a CD to help cancer patients and their families reduce stress levels for the Bristol Cancer Clinic and you can listen to their beautiful sounds here: http://www.sulismusic.com/about
