A diet rich in superfoods and raw foods is one of the best ways to strengthen your immune system and support your body during an overgrowth of cancer. It is extremely important to maintain balanced blood sugar levels and using high quality coconut oil is an excellent source of essential fats that can help balance blood sugar levels. You can also support healthy blood sugar levels by limiting the intake of all forms of sugar (even fruit), as pathogens like candida feed on sugars, exacerbating their growth. Some health experts say that sugar speeds the growth of cancer.
Carbohydrates (sweet foods, fruits and grains) turn to sugar and produce acids, creating the perfect environment for the growth of more pathogens and the proliferation of more disease… When we feed candida, it releases toxic by-products which leave you feeling tired, bloated, irritable and worse, craving more sweets, and carbohydrates (even caffeine) to bring back the lost energy… This is a vicious cycle.
Stabilizing the blood sugar will help to stop this cycle and is fundamental to achieving good health in general. The body is constantly in “reaction mode” when we over-consume carbohydrates and sugars. It is in “shock” trying to manage the overload of sugars in the system all of the time. This overload of sugars paralyses the immune system and feeds candida.
Organic, clean vegetables, lot’s of greens and superfood smoothies are the foundation of a cancer fighting diet: shifting away from a carbohydrate based diet to a fat based diet is key. This is easy by simply adding coconut oil to your smoothies and to your hot teas. This helps balance the blood sugar and provide sustained energy. Then, top it off with some chlorella and watch all of your sweet cravings vanish!
Whatever treatments you are considering, good nutrition plays a vital role in strengthening the bodies immune system so it can be better able to fully recover.
