Cancer is what you eat.

We gonna learn one day that how we eat plays a major role in how we heal!


When diagnosed with cancer, every patient should first of all be informed about the importance of alkaline diet by their oncologist.

The patients should therefore know that their diet plays a very important role in the healing process. Accordingly by adopting several changes in the diet, the patient can dramatically increase the chances of healing the cancer.
Nutrition therefore, is the best defense when it comes to the process of healing cancer.
Recently, there is an increasing interest and patients are becoming aware about the importance of alkaline diet, which is composed mainly by vegetables combined with a small amount of fruit, grains and protein.
Except the choice of food, the diet includes specific meal preparation techniques that are adding more to the cancer healing.
Adopting the modern and dynamic way of life, nowadays people don’t always pay attention to the choice of food they make and the way they prepare it.
Their diets usually include convenience food items, microwave fast meals, packaged snacks and fast food. Containing significant amounts of sugar, fat and additives, this kind of food is definitely not a good choice for the ones that are fighting cancer.

In continuation we are sharing a brief introduction to this popular diet and several instructions about the ones that are interested in the same.
There are six main changes that every cancer patient should introduce to their diet. It may seem strict for the beginners, but as a concept it is very acceptable and simple.
Simply put, what you need to do is eat as people used to do years ago, when there was no such development in technology. At that time they were mainly consuming fresh food prepared in simple ways.
The so called modern food which is claimed to be unhealthy is unfortunately still very popular nowadays. It is proven to contribute to inflammation and increases intracellular pH.
This condition is named latent acidosis, which means providing the cancer a perfect environment to grow.
Adopting a properly created alkaline diet will significantly improve your intracellular pH over a period of time. It is the best defense against continuous inflammation.
This diet is mainly composed of organic food items, including green vegetables, many herbs and spices, root vegetables, a lot of onion and garlic, leek and chives, broccoli, cauliflower and cabbage, beans, lentils, peas, nuts and seeds, which are sometimes combined with a small amount of non-gluten grains such as rice.
This diet also includes certain amounts of clean fish, organic poultry or grass-fed meat, which can be consumed several times per week.
During the day, the patients are also allowed to have two to three pieces of whole fresh fruit, which create a balance between the vitamin and mineral consumption. It is highly recommended to consume the fruit and vegetables raw.

 Reduce and then eliminate sugar

It is proven that cancer cells use more glucose per unit of time that any other cell group. Sugar creates an acidic environment which greatly supports the cancer progression.
Therefore, a diet that is high in sugar, including fruits as well triggers the insulin response. If you consume sugar on regular basis you suppress your immune system and at the same time increase the levels of insulin which creates insulin resistance.
This condition has been directly related to cancer proliferation. Processed sugar reduces magnesium in the body, which also contributes to cancer proliferation.
Because of its production process, high fructose corn syrupis high in mercury, which is known as a cancer-promoting toxin in the body. In this diet, it is recommended that you exclude sugar in all its forms, even natural such as honey (See more…) and agave.
However, this doesn’t mean that you should completely exclude sugar from your diet.
You can enjoy unsweetened applesauce, two or three figs or dried apricots, or a piece of fresh pineapple if you need to indulge your sweet tooth.
Moderation with fruit is very important, as fructose has been shown to increase the rate of cancer cell progression.

Eliminate gluten

Grains that contain gluten also cause inflammation. As we already stressed, inflammation promotes cancer growth.
In this case, you need to avoid high-gluten grains such as wheat, pasta, cereals, bread, muffins, cakes, crackers and any kind of baked goods.
Cancer patients are only allowed to consume whole, non-gluten grains such as quinoa, millet, rice and buckwheat.
It is important to note that the items that are marketed as gluten free are not a really good choice, since they usually contain significant amounts of sugar and processed oils.

Eliminate dairy products

According to a study conducted by Prof Colin Campbell, PhD, cow dairy has been identified as one of the most cancer promoting foods.
Yogurts that are rich in protein and made with added powdered milk or whey are promoting cancer cells growth, much more than plain milk, yogurt and cheese.
However, at the process of healing, you should avoid all kinds of dairy products. These products are also claimed to promote inflammation, cause bone deterioration (because of the high acid production during the process of digestion).

Use only olive oil, coconut oil and avocado oil

While eating according to the rules of this diet, you should only use natural, cold-pressed olive oil, coconut oil or avocado. It is recommended to select organic products. 
These oils are recommended because they have anti-inflammatory effect. In particular, coconut oil has been proven to have antibacterial and antifungal effect, which is also helpful for the ones that are fighting cancer.
It is important to note that you should entirely eliminate corn, soy, canola or sunflower oils, since all of these products are usually highly processed. In some instances they also contain GMOs which are often related to cancer.
