When you research cancer-fighting foods, you’ll generally see articles written outlining the “Top Cancer Fighting Foods.” But, what if those foods not only didn’t help fight cancer but could be tripping up your detox pathways which may increase your risk of chronic disease including cancer?
Are these Foods Really Cancer Fighting?
The following foods are regularly cited as top cancer fighting foods; however, these foods may not only not fight cancer, but may actually contribute to cancer cell growth.
Cruciferous vegetables include:
- Brussel sprouts
- Bok choy
- Collard greens
- Turnip greens
Vegetables in this category are seen as cancer fighting foods because they contain sulfur, and the human body needs sulfate. Right?
If you are one of millions who experiences sulfur intolerance, this means your body is unable to detox sulfur and convert sulfur into sulfate.
If you are sulfur intolerant and consume sulfur rich vegetables, your liver can back up, creating excess estrogens and other toxins that may lead to increased cancer risk. Sulfur is one of the “Four Disruptors” that can wreak havoc on the body, leading to chronic metabolic disease.
Experts tell us that raw garlic is a superfood when it comes to helping fight cancer cells and block angiogenesis, the process which halts new blood vessels that support cancer cells and tumors. Garlic is also thought to protect against radiation damage.
However, Garlic is also in the sulfur family of foods and can disrupt detoxification for some people, leading to increased xeno-estrogens and a higher risk of disease and cancer.
Berries have high antioxidant levels which reduce inflammation levels, prevent DNA damage and block angiogenesis.
However, berries are high in Oxalates. Read more about the symptoms of high oxalates.
Oxalic acid is a naturally occurring molecule that is a toxic and corrosive acid. When it attaches itself to a mineral like calcium, magnesium, potassium or salt, it becomes an oxalate, i.e. sodium oxalate, potassium oxalate, magnesium oxalate, and calcium oxalate.
Oxalates steal minerals including iron, calcium, magnesium, and zinc that your body needs. Any digestive issue, like Leaky Gut, Crohn’s disease, and auto-immune issues, can increase the number of oxalates that deposits in the body, and any urinary problem may reduce the number of oxalates that excrete from the body. When you have more oxalates coming in than going out, you can experience oxalate poisoning.
If someone is fighting a chronic disease or cancer, their system is compromised, and will have an even more difficult time detoxing the oxalates out of the body. Those oxalates may increase the toxic load, leading to higher risks of cancer.
Natural health advocates tell us mushrooms have cancer fighting compounds and that just one button mushroom per day can decrease breast cancer by 60%. Mushrooms increase natural killer cell activity in the body.
However, mushrooms can carry mold and increase the mold in the body. Mold can lead to allergies and contribute to a compromised immune system.
Turmeric contains curcumin which is thought to be one of the highest anti-cancer fighting nutrients.
However, turmeric is very high in oxalates like berries. It may disrupt the detox pathways, and this may lead to an overabundance of toxins that cause cancer.
Organic tofu, tempeh, unsweetened soy milk, and edamame are examples of soy; some people claim these are healthy plant-based estrogen foods and great for fighting cancer.
However, soy can increase estrogen levels in the body and excess estrogen may increase the risk of chronic disease and cancer.
Supplements to Help Prevent Chronic Disease
Chronic disease may be prevented by keeping your overall health at optimal levels and supplementing your diet with vitamins, minerals, nutrients, and elements that are proven to fight bad cells.
The following supplements are my go-to natural additions to help boost your immune system and achieve optimal health to help prevent chronic diseases.
ASCENT DIET CLEANSE
The Ascent Diet Cleanse is designed to increase ATP in the mitochondria, which gives the cell energy to fight diseased and cancer cells, cleanse the liver and boost detoxification. As the body’s detoxification system is improved, the toxins that lead to chronic disease are minimized. Furthermore, the cleanse improves nutrient absorption, supports Leaky Gut repair, and improves hormonal balance; all of these factors can help fight chronic disease.
The following supplements are included in the Ascent Diet Cleanse.
🍃 Accelerated Silver. Accelerated Scalar Silver your immune system’s ability to devitalize foreign pathogens that lead to chronic disease. By keeping the immune system strong, the body engages in anti-inflammatory processes, leading to optimal health, which encourages the elimination of chronic disease.
🍃 Accelerated Keto. Accelerated Keto turns your body into fat burning mode within 30 minutes and taps into its own fat stores for energy right away. While in ketosis, the body engages in “autophagy”, which is where it “cleans up” and recycles all of the diseased cells and reduces inflammation throughout the body. Inflammation is directly connected to chronic disease and cancer. Furthermore, Accelerated Keto will increase ATP production, boosting mitochondrial health, and strengthening the immune system at the cellular level.
In addition to helping reverse chronic disease, taking Accelerated Keto is the quickest way to start burning excess calories, suppressing the appetite, and maintaining high levels of stable energy.
When the body is running on ketones produced by the Accelerated Keto combined with intermittent fasting and a low-carb diet instead of utilizing glucose for energy, ATP production increases significantly, leading to enhanced physical energy.
Furthermore, the additional ingredients in the Accelerated Keto break down saturated fats into unsaturated fats; this will help burn the dangerous visceral fat around the belly and the liver fat that lead to chronic disease and cancer.
The more a person’s liver is defatted and unclogged, the easier it is for the liver to function in all areas including detoxifying the xeno-estrogens that lead to cancer, breaking down fat molecules into usable energy, and burning the belly fat.
The liver is also where the thyroid hormone converts from T4 to T3, and as the liver function becomes better, the thyroid works better as well, increasing metabolism, mitochondrial function, and energy further. It is known when the thyroid isn’t functioning, the immune system suffers, digestion declines, and chronic disease can surface. Accelerated Keto also includes a compound known as HMB which prevents muscle wasting. With more healthy muscle tissue, more mitochondria with increased ATP is sustained and the immune system is strengthened.
Additionally, the Organic Mukul in the Accelerated Keto is known to break down fats in the body and provide an energy spark to burn those fats that it breaks down. It detoxifies the body and liver.
🍃 Acceleradine. Acceleradine increases ATP by 18 TIMES, which increases cellular energy, metabolism, caloric burn, brain function, physical performance, wound healing, fat burning, healthy apoptosis (destruction of diseased cells), and more. Apoptosis is the destruction of diseases and cancer cells. There is a direct correlation between iodine and reducing diseased cells in the body. Furthermore, when ATP increases, energy and fat oxidation increase. Acceleradine also helps improve metabolism and physical energy by supplying the necessary iodine for thyroid hormones. As the thyroid is functioning optimally and the ATP is maximized, chronic disease may reverse.
🍃 Accelerated Cellular Detox Powder. This organic formula soaks up the toxins, heavy metals, and radiation that can lead to chronic disease and cancer. It also coats the stomach and intestinal lining, reduces inflammation, helps with bloat and regularity, and alleviates issues like Crohn’s disease and Colitis. It also soaks up all of the toxins throughout the day that can cause Leaky Gut. As inflammation is decreased, absorption of nutrients is improved and disease is minimized.
🍃 Quintessential .9. It supports homeostasis, rehydration, and normal digestion while eliminating excess water retention. All of these factors lead to a stronger immune system. The solution achieves the same consistency as your blood plasma and consists of all the needed electrolytes and minerals. This 0.9 concentration can help replenish mineral and trace element levels, gently detoxify, and support sleep, relaxation, and digestion.
🍃 Liver Flush Kit. These supplements soften liver stones and prep the liver to release those stones into the toilet! As a result, detoxification improves, fat burning increases, and metabolic rate increases. A liver flush 3-4 times a year is needed for optimal liver function, immune system, detoxification, thyroid function, metabolism, and fat burning. With hundreds of stones sitting in your liver, it isn’t able to break down fats for usable energy, to detox the body of toxins that cause chronic disease and cancer.
🍃 Laxa Comfort. Laxa Comfort gently and naturally stimulates bowel movements. Regardless of how constipated you are, this will make having 2-3 movements a day occur consistently. Constipation can inhibit detoxification and lead to chronic disease
NucNoMore® is a Scalar Frequency charged ORMES formula that supports the removal of harmful non-ionizing and ionizing radiation, including EMFs from smartphones, smart meters, and 5G. As radiation does lead to cancer, auto-immune disease, thyroid disease, mental decline, and more, it is essential to combat radiation for disease prevention.
It only takes 1-2 bottles to completely detox your body from all radiation. It is then recommended to take 3 days a week for maintenance thereafter.
ACCELERATED ANCIENT SALT
This is a Scalar technology-enhanced salt made from a mixture of five precious ancient seabed and sea salts from the Andes Mountains, Himalayas, and the U.S that is rich in minerals without chemicals, preservatives, excipients, stabilizers, and conditioners.
This is the only salt that holds a strong negative charge with Scalar technology used to enhance its frequency and ability to help “pull out” positively charged toxins, parasites, and undigested fats. It is able to decrease any side effects from detoxification.
This salt optimizes detox and rehydration. On top of all the health benefits, it tastes amazing on your food.
X39 STEM CELL ACTIVATION PATCH
The Lifewave X39 Stem Cell Activation Patch is the first product ever that is designed with phototherapy and is believed to activate your body’s own stem cells. Through this mechanism, your body naturally reduces inflammation, resets over 4,000 genes, and in turn protects existing mitochondria and produces more ATP. People report better sleep, reversal of chronic health issues, and other anti-aging results.
X49 is a patch that is based on increasing AHK-Cu, a copper peptide. It increases energy and recovery after exercise, increases stamina, improves cardiovascular function and focus, reduces belly fat, increases muscle tone and strength, and increases lean body mass and bone density. It also helps with osteoporosis, and some people experience substantially faster, and thicker hair growth. It may help protect from 5G and radiation. All of these factors strengthen the body and help prevent chronic disease.
ENERGY ENHANCER PATCH
The Energy Enhancer patch increases ATP production in the mitochondria, increases Heart Rate Variability, improves the bioelectrical measurement or “phase angle” or integrity of the cell walls, reduces inflammation, and increases endurance. Just after 20 minutes, the capacity of each cell increases.
With age, the cell walls become rigid and hard to penetrate with nutrients coming in and toxins going out. As a result, disease and cancer cells increase in the body. The Energy Enhancer Patches soften the cell wall and improve that phase angle within five minutes of applying the patch. Additionally, it improves digestion and circulation which are essential for nutrient absorption that leads to improved immunity. Lastly, it increases beta-oxidation which is the fastest way to increase cellular energy.
The Energy Enhancer Patch also increases fat burning and muscle growth; these two factors increase longevity and reduce cancer risk.
Glutathione has a major role in the protection of the mitochondria from ROS and is positively correlated to longevity. As it helps with detoxification and strengthens the immune system, glutathione may lower the risk of chronic disease.
The body needs magnesium for over 600 different biochemical reactions in the body including being a cofactor to catalyze and enhance biochemical reactions. Magnesium helps sleep, reduces stress, boosts the immune system, maintains heart health, and builds strong bones. Magnesium Breakthrough is the only magnesium supplement that incorporates all 7 types of magnesium and each plays a critical role in different functions in the body.
Copper serves as an immunity builder by preventing and curing anemia, which enables your body to both defend and heal faster. It also acts as an antioxidant that supports immunity. Copper is also known to increase energy, improve enzymatic reactions in the body, improve connective tissues like collagen, improve brain function, help hair and eye pigmentation, and helps fetal growth and development. Without copper, oxidative stress and inflammation go unchecked and lead to chronic disease and cancer.
Dietary & Lifestyle Changes to Help Prevent Chronic Disease
Wild Animal Protein and B Vitamins
Wild animal protein, including elk, bison, deer, lamb, and wild fish contains the nutrients and protein to support healthy mitochondria, strengthen the immune system, and prevent chronic disease. On the other hand, chicken and conventional beef contain amyloid proteins that cannot be broken down for usable amino acids and lead to Leaky Gut, Alzheimer’s, Dementia, and other diseases.
Furthermore, B vitamins are absolutely critical for mitochondrial function — especially niacin, riboflavin, and folate.” These B vitamins are available most abundantly in wild animal protein, and not typically in a vegan diet.
B vitamins are water-soluble vitamins and act as coenzymes that are involved in several reactions linked to the generation of ATP.
Carnitine, also only found in animal protein, is imperative for optimal mitochondrial health. It helps remove accumulated toxic fatty acyl-CoA metabolites, and assists in ridding toxic compounds out of the mitochondria preventing build-up. Furthermore, L-Carnitine protects mitochondria the whole cell by suppressing fatty acid-induced mitochondrial membrane damage; those protective effects have been linked to improved energy metabolism.
Lower Oxidative Stress
Oxidative stress causes inflammation, accelerated aging, and chronic disease. It comes from processed foods, sugar, chronic stress, and excess exercise. More oxidative stress requires more antioxidants that neutralize them; in other words, the less oxidative stress, the fewer antioxidants the body requires.
