Verne Verona's practical formula to stall, reverse or prevent cancer. (author of "Nature's Cancer-Fighting Foods)
-Strengthen Blood Quality - This is accomplished through the daily consumption of a wide variety of nutritious whole foods from plant sources. These foods include: whole grains, grain products, beans, vegetables, sea vegetables, fruits, vegetable quality oils, nuts, seeds, fruits and small quantities of animal protein (optional). Additionally, minimizing foods high in acid residue contributes to a more alkaline mineral status which also optimizes metabolic functioning.
-Strengthen Immunity - In Nature's Cancer-Fighting Foods, you'll find practical strategies for reducing sugar, fat, and chemicals which have a tremendous impact on immune health. Learning to regulate activity and sleep are also crucial steps toward keeping immune health in maximized condition Proven immune enhancing supplements and herbs are detailed for their valuable influence on immune health.
-Regulate Blood Sugar - The Nature's Cancer-Fighting Food Plan helps evenly stabilize blood sugar while increasing one's sensitivity of what foods help or hinder this balancing act.
-Strengthen Your Detox Ability - The balance in our carbohydrate, fat, and protein ratios, as well as food quality, dramatically influences our body's ability to detoxify. Nature's Cancer-Fighting Food Plan strengthens the organs of elimination (intestines, liver, kidneys, lymph, skin) as it promotes better circulation to make the natural process of detoxification more efficient.
Key health habits from Lindsey Williams' book, "You can Live!"
"One mouthful at a time, the power of good food offers us an essential key for transforming our health and the health of generations to come."
-Exercise between 30-60 minutes per day, 5 to 6 days per week at a moderate pace. This includes walking, bicycling, swimming, aerobic dance, etc. Exercise outdoors when possible to receive fresh air and sunlight each day. Use an air purifier indoors if air quality is in question.
-Eat the most nutrient-dense per calorie foods from each of the following food groups each day: vegetables, fruits, whole gains, legumes, low or non-fat milk/dairy, lean fish/poultry/meat. Talk with your doctor about nutritional supplements and use those specifically prescribed for your condition.
-Be aware of stress points in your life and your body. Back off when these points are passed and practice stress management/relaxation techniques.
-Control blood cholesterol, triglycerides, glucose, uric acid, and blood pressure to your doctor's recommendation
-Be cigarette smoke-free
-Drink 6 to 8 glasses of filtered (purified) water daily. Add one glass for every 30 minutes of exercise, or each hour in hot weather outdoors.
-Get 7 to 8 hours of sleep per night.
-Develop the mental aspect of your life, including: increase your knowledge base continually, spiritual development and contact with higher power, relationship development and maintenance, fulfilling your purpose in life through your work and in helping others.

-Reduce or eliminate use of plastic containers for food storage and drinking water.(their production releases chlorinated toxins into the environment and xenoestrogens can leach into food and water)
- Avoid products containing chlorine: Look for office paper products whitened without chlorine. Purchase non-bleached coffee filters, paper, napkins, toilet tissue, tampons, etc. The EPA has determined that using bleached coffee filters alone can result in a lifetime exposure to dioxin that exceeds acceptable risks. Do not use chlorine bleach for household cleaning or laundry. Hydrogen peroxide is a safe alternative; it breaks down to water and oxygen.
-Drink filtered or bottled water, not city water or water that contains chlorine and other chemicals.
-Do not use pesticides or herbicides. Use a cup of salt in a gallon of 10% vinegar to eliminate weeds.
-Use only natural personal care products and underarm deodorants that don't contain parabens, phthlates, chlorine or other harmful additives.
-Eat a diet containing healthy-fats:(ie.olive oil, flax) be cautious of synthetic fat substitutes (avoid non organic animal foods that contain hormones such as milk, chicken, beef, pork). Avoid fried, char-broiled, or barbecued as forms of cooking.
-To counter free radicals eat foods high in anti-oxidants (vitamins A, C, E, selenium, beta carotene) like green leafy vegetables, kale, carrots, yams, sweet potatoes, citrus, nuts, broccoli, cauliflower.
-Avoid alcohol and caffeine/coffee.
-Eat organically grown food whenever possible grown without pesticides or herbicides.
-Exercise on a regular basis. It helps to oxygenate your body, helps your body to detoxify and helps lower stress.
-Avoid Teflon and aluminum cookware.
-Learn better ways of handling stress. Enjoy your life.
AVOID LIST-by Michael B. Schachter, MD, CNS, FACAM
-Sugar - Avoid all foods containing added sugar (e.g. cakes, candies, ice cream, sodas, certain cereals, Jell-O, ketchup, etc.). Sugar natural to food such as sugar in a fruit may be eaten - raw unfiltered honey, unsulphured black strap molasses, pure Vermont syrup, rice syrup and "date sugar" may be used as acceptable sweeteners, but should be used in moderation. For some cancer patients and some other patients, even these natural sweeteners should be eliminated. Stevia is a natural herbal supplement that has a sweet quality.
-Alcohol - Avoid all alcoholic beverages including liquor, beer and wine. Try naturally sparkling spring water with a twist of lemon or lime as your social drink.
-Caffeine - Avoid coffee, tea, cola and chocolate. It is advisable to also avoid decaffeinated coffee such as Sanka or Brim, as chemicals are used in the decaffeination process. If coffee is used, it should be organic, as most coffee is high in pesticides. Herb teas are not only acceptable substitutes, but often therapeutic.
-Tobacco - Avoid cigarettes, cigars, pipes, etc. Try to avoid inhaling other peoples smoke, as much as possible.
-White Flour Products - Avoid white bread, white pasta products and also white rice. Whole grain flour products and brown rice may be used instead.
-Hydrogenated Fats - Avoid hydrogenated fats which are oils which have been made hard by the addition of hydrogen atoms (e.g., margarine, Crisco, mayonnaise, and processed peanut butter). Old-fashioned nut butter that is not hydrogenated may be used. Saturated fats (e.g., butter, animal fats) are allowed in moderation. Unsaturated cold pressed vegetable oils (e.g., safflower, sesame, canola, sunflower, virgin olive oil) may be used. Avoid frying in vegetable oil; broth may be used.
-Chemicals added to food - Labels must be read. In some cases, labels do not reflect the chemicals in the food. Avoid artificial preservatives: (e.g., BHA, BHT, MSG, nitrites, nitrates, sodium benzoate, etc.) commonly found in bread, crackers, cereals. All processed cured meats such as bologna, salami, frankfurters, corned beef and pastrami, should be avoided because of the addition of chemicals. Avoid artificial coloring: commonly found in frankfurters, soda, certain candy, maraschino cherries, juice drinks, etc. Avoid artificial flavoring: commonly found in certain ice creams, frozen pies and candy. Avoid artificial sweeteners: aspartame (Nutrasweet), saccharine (Sweet 'n Low), all diet sodas, any diabetic foods, other processed low calorie foods. Stevia may be used as a sweetener.
-Fluoride - Avoid fluoridated water and all tap water. Use bottled spring water, distilled or filtered water. Avoid fluoridated toothpaste
-Aluminum cookware and Teflon cookware and aluminum anti-perspirant deodorants - Avoid aluminum and Teflon cookware as aluminum tends to accumulate in the body and fluoride may be released from Teflon. Aluminum anti-perspirant deodorants block sweat glands, preventing appropriate detoxification and also may result in aluminum accumulation in the body. Stainless steel, pyrex, enamel, corning and iron cookware may be used instead.
-Non-prescription Drugs - Avoid marijuana, cocaine, hallucinogens (like LSD) and generally all "recreational drugs."
-Prescription Drugs - Please make sure your physician here at our office is aware of any prescribed drugs you are taking. We try to keep these to a minimum.
-Amalgam (Mercury containing) Dental Fillings - Mercury is highly toxic and enters the tissues of the body to damage the nervous system, immune system and other systems. Be aware of high mercury levels in certain fish, such as swordfish and tuna and reduce or avoid intake.
-Electric Blankets - The electric energy field interferes with a person's energy field.
-Hair Dyes - Synthetic hair dyes increase risk for certain types of cancers. Some mens' hair dyes contain lead. Certain natural dyes may be more acceptable.
-Lipstick containing lead - most of them do - Use lipsticks that do not contain lead.
-High Voltage Power Lines - Avoid these as much as possible. If your home is located near them, consider moving.
-Waterbeds - The electric energy field used to warm the bed interferes with the persons energy field.
-Metal Rimmed Eyeglasses - The metal crossing the midline between the eyes weakens a persons energy field.
-Tight Clothing that restricts lymphatic system drainage--especially bras in women, which may be associated with breast cancer when worn more than 12 hours a day. Wear bras as little as possible. Bras should be as loose-fitting as possible.
-Microwave Ovens - Negative effect on food and harmful radiation in vicinity of microwave oven.
Barry Sears, The Zone Diet-THE 10-STEP ANTI-CANCER PROGRAM
Limit dietary fat to 20 percent of total calories, with less than 10 percent of total calories as saturated fats. Eliminate hydrogenated fats.
Increase fiber to between 25 and 35 grams a day.
Eat lots of fresh fruits and vegetables.
Eat foods high in the antioxidants beta carotene, vitamin C and vitamin E.
Switch from red meat to seafood and soy products.
Eat foods high in calcium.
Consider daily supplements of the following:
Vitamin C, 500 mg.
Calcium, 500 mg.
Flaxseed meal (ground flaxseed), 30 grams
Acidophilus powder, 1 teaspoon
Vitamin E, 200 IU
Selenium, 100 mcg.
With trillions of cell duplications occurring inside you every day, it stands to reason that a few of those cells will become out of control renegades. If your body's immune system is strong enough to search out and destroy these cells, you don't "get cancer." If the cells win the battle with your body, you do get cancer. Good nutrition is one of many ways you can help your body fight this daily battle. If you think of phytonutrients in plant foods as chemo-prevention, you may someday spare yourself chemotherapy. Enjoy your food and your health!
