Cancer is the second most common cause of death in the United States. It’s so prevalent that most consider it a tragic, unavoidable fact of life. The truth is that it’s not inevitable, it doesn’t just occur at random, and you do have a choice.
Cancers often grow for decades before they become detectable, and your diet matters. The foods that you eat can either stimulate precancerous cells to grow into full-blown cancer, or they can activate your immune system to destroy these abnormal cells. Unfortunately, the typical American diet is cancer-promoting, not cancer-fighting.
If you are currently undergoing treatment for active cancer, changing your diet now may be life saving. A carefully designed nutrition plan may help you improve your chances of survival, better tolerate cancer treatments, and could prevent cancer from coming back. Enroll in our program, and Dr. Gutman will take into account your complete medical history and prepare a plant-based, cancer-fighting diet for you. This class will teach you which cancer-fighting foods to eat and which foods to avoid, helping you in your fight to become cancer-free.
Some chemotherapy drugs are designed to mimic the anticancer effects of certain plants. Why not load up on these natural cancer-fighting foods? They’re delicious, inexpensive, and safe!
Studies demonstrate that good nutrition can greatly aid in both preventing and fighting cancer. For example, a study conducted in China revealed that a small dietary change including green tea and mushrooms resulted in an 89% reduced risk of developing breast cancer. In another study, garlic completely stopped the growth of all eight cancers tested. Additionally, other studies have shown that berries and pomegranates contain powerful anticancer compounds that repair DNA damage, slow tumor growth, and starve cancers of their blood supply.
These are just a few, small examples of the nutritional choices you should be making if you are serious about becoming cancer-free. It takes a lifestyle intervention that empowers you with the knowledge and resources you need to succeed. Cleveland Nutrition will support you every step of the way.
