RAW Juice Therapy : Cancer Cure

Raw juice therapy is a method of treatment of disease through an exclusive diet of juices of fruits
and vegetables. It is also known as juice fasting. It is the most effective way to restore health
and rejuvenate the body.
During raw juice therapy, the eliminative and cleansing capacity of the organs of elimination,
namely lungs, liver, kidneys and the skin, is greatly increased and masses of accumulated
metabolic waste and toxins are quickly eliminated. It affords a physiological rest to the digestive
and assimilative organs. After the juice fasting or raw juice therapy, the digestion of food and the
utilisation of nutrients is vastly improved.
An exclusive diet of raw juices of fruits and vegetables results in much faster recovery from
diseases and more effective cleansing and regeneration of the tissues than the fasting on pure
water. Dr. Ragnar Berg, a world-renowned authority on nutriton and biochemistry observes :
"During fasting the body burns up and excretes huge amounts of accumulated wastes. We can
help this cleansing process by drinking alkaline juices instead of water while fasting. I have
supervised many fasts and made extensive examinations and tests of fasting patients, and I am
convinced that drinking alkali-forming fruit and vegetable juices, instead of water, during fasting
will increase the healing effect of fasting. Elimination of uric acid and other inorganic acids will be
accelerated. And sugars in juices will strengthen the heart. Juice fasting is, therefore, the best
form of fasting. "
As juices are extracted from plants and fruits, they process definite medicinal properties. Specific
juices are beneficial in specific conditions. Besides specific medicinal virtues, raw fruit and
vegetable juices have an extraordinary revitalising and rejuvenative effect on all the organs,
glands and functions of the body.
Favourable Effects
The favourable effect of raw juices in the treatment of disease is attributed to the following facts :
Raw juices of fruits and vegetables are extremely rich in vitamins, minerals, trace
elements, enzymes and natural sugars. They exercise beneficial effect in normalising all
the body functions. They supply needed elements for the body’s own healing activity and
cell regeneration, thereby speeding the recovery.
The juices extracted from raw fruits and vegetables require no digestion and almost all
their vital nutrients are assimilated directly in the bloodstream.
Raw juices are extremely rich in alkaline elements. This is highly beneficial in normalising
acid-alkaline balance in the blood and tissues as there is over-acidity in most conditions
of ill-health.
Generous amounts of easily assimilable organic minerals in raw juices especially calcium,
potassium and silicon help in restoring biochemical and mineral balance in the tissues
and cells, thereby preventing premature ageing of cells and disease.
Raw juices contain certain natural medicines, vegetal hormones and antibiotics. For
instance, string beans are said to contain insulin-like substance. Certain hormones
needed by the pancreas to produce insulin are present in cucumber and onion juices.
Fresh juices of garlic , onions, radish and tomatoes contain antibiotic substances.
Precautions
Certain precautions are, however, necessary in adopting an exclusive diet of raw juices. Firstly,
all juices should be made fresh immediately before drinking. Canned and frozen juices should
not be used. It will be advisable that one should have one’s own juicer for extracting fresh juices.
Secondly, only fresh ripe fruits and vegetables, preferably organically grown, should be used for
extraction of juices. Thirdly, only as much juice as needed for immediate consumption should be
extracted. Raw juices oxidise rapidly and lose their medicinal value in storage, even under
refrigeration. Fourthly, the quality of the juices has a distinct bearing on the results obtained. In
case of incomplete extraction of juices, their effective power is proportionately reduced due to
the absence of the vitamins and enzymes which are left behind in fibre and the pulp. Finally, if
juices are too sweat they should be diluted in water on 50 : 50 basis or mixed with other less
sweet juices. This is especially important in some specific conditions such as diabetes,
hypoglycemia, arthritis and high blood pressure.
Fruit and vegetable juices may be divided into six main types. These are : (i) Juices from sweet
fruits such as prunes and grapes. (ii) Juices from sub-acid fruits like apple, plum, pear, peach,
apricot and cherry, (iii) Juices from acid fruits like orange, lemon, grapefruit, strawberry and
pineapple. (iv) Juices from vegetable fruits, namely, tomato and cucumber. (v) Juices from green
leafy vegetables like cabbage, celery, lettuce, spinach, parsley and watercress. (vi) Juices from
root vegetables like beetroot, carrot, onion, potato and radish.
Generally speaking, fruit juices stir up toxins and acids in the body, thereby stimulating the
eliminative processes. Vegetable juices, on the other hand, soothe the jaded nerves and work in
a much milder manner. They carry away toxic matter in a gentle way. Owing to their differing
actions fruit and vegetable juices should not be used at the same time or mixed together.
It is desirable to use juices individually. In any case not more than three juices should be used in
any one mixture. The following broad rules apply when using mixtures of juices :
Juices from sweet fruits may be combined with juices of sub-acid fruits, but not with those
of acid fruits, vegetable fruits or vegetables.
Juices from sub-acid fruits may be combined with juices of sweet fruits, or acid fruits, but
not with other juices.
Juices from acid fruits may be combined with those of sub-acid fruits or vegetable fruits,
but not with other juices.
Juices from vegetable fruits may be combined with those of acid fruits or of green leafy
vegetables, but not with other juices.
Juices from green leafy vegetables may be combined with those of vegetable fruits or of
the root vegetable, but not with other juices.
Juices from root vegetables may be combined with those of green leafy vegetables, but
not with other juices.
A proper selection of juices in treating a particular ailment is very essential. Thus, for
instance, juices of carrot, cucumber, cabbage and other vegetables are very valuable in
asthma, arthritis and skin disease, but juices of orange and mosambi aggravate their
symptoms by increasing the amount of mucus.

Some common ailments and fruit and vegetable juices found beneficial in their treatment are
mentioned below :
Acidity : Grapes, orange, mosambi, carrot and spinach.
Acne : Grapes, pear, plum, tomato, cucumber, carrot, potato and spinach.

When on a raw juice therapy, the prescribed juice should be drunk every three hours. One can
thus take juices five to six times a day. A glass of water mixed with lemon juice and 20 to 30
grams of honey may be taken first thing in the morning on arising. Thereafter, the prescribed
juice may be taken at three-hourly intervals. The quantity of juice on each occasion may be 250
ml on the first day. This quantity may be increased by 50 ml each succeeding day till one takes
600 ml on each occasion. The juice diet can be continued for 30 to 40 days without any
ill-effects. The patient should take adequate rest during the raw juice therapy.
Raw juices act as a cleansing agent and start eliminating toxins and morbid matter from the
system immediately. This often results in symptoms such as pain in the abdomen, diarrhoea,
loss of weight, headache, fever, weakness, sleeplessness and bad breath. These reactions,
which are part of the cleansing process, should not be suppressed by the use of drugs. They will
cease when the body is able to expel all toxins.
After the raw juice therapy, the return to normal balanced diet should be gradual, and in stages.
In the beginning, two juice meals may be replaced by milk and fruits. Then gradually juice meals
may be substituted by a balanced-diet.

More Cancer Prevention Programs

CANCERThe word ‘cancer ‘ comes from the latin "carcinoma" meaning crab. It is the most dreadeddisease and refers to all malignant tumours caused by the abnormal growth of a body cell or agroup of cells . It is today the second largest killer in the world, next only to heart ailments. Theterm covers more than 200 diseases.The majority of cancers occur in the age group 50-60. Sex does not affect the incidence of thedisease. It, however, affects the site of growth. In men, cancer is usually found in the intestines,the prostate and the lungs. In women, it occurs mostly in the breast tissues, uterus, gall-bladderand thyroid.SymptomsThe symptoms of cancer vary according to the site of the growth. The American Cancer Societyhas prescribed seven signs or danger signals in general which may indicate the presence ofcancer. These are : a sore that does not heal ; change in bowel or bladder habits ; unusualbleeding or discharge ; thickening or lump in breast or elsewhere ; indigestion or difficulty inswallowing ; obvious change in a wart or a mole, and a persistent and nagging cough orhoarseness. Other symptoms may include unexplained loss of weight , particularly in olderpeople, a change in skin colour and changes in the menstrual periods, especially bleedingbetween periods.CausesThe prime cause of cancer is not known. Certain cancer- causing substances, known ascarcinogens, however, increase the chances of getting the disease. About 80 per cent ofcancers are caused by environmental factors . Forty per cent of male cancers in India are linkedwith tobacco, a known cancer- causing agent. The consumption of pan, bettlenut, tobacco andslaked lime has been linked with lung and throat cancers. Heavy consumption of alcoholic drinkscan cause oesophagal, stomach and liver cancers. Occupational exposure to industrialpollutants such as asbestos, nickel, tar, soot and high doses of X-rays can lead to skin and lungcancers and leukemia. Other factors contributing to cancer are vital infections, trauma, hormoneimbalance and malnutrition. Many well-known biologists and naturopaths, however, believe thata faulty diet is the root cause of cancer. Investigations indicate that the cancer incidence is indirect proportion to the amount of animal protein, particularly meat, in the diet. Dr. Willard J.Visek, a renowned research scientist explained recently a link between excessive meat-eatingand cancer. According to him, the villain is ammonia, the carcinogenic by-product of meatdigestion.TreatmentThe effective treatment of cancer consists of a complete change in diet, besides total eliminationof all environmental sources of carcinogens, such as smoking and carcinogenic chemicals in air, water and food. There has recently been a surge of popular interest in the concept that diet isnot just a minor, but rather a major factor in both the development and the prevention of cancer.The disease can be prevented and even treated by dietary programmes that include ‘naturalfoods ‘ and the use of megavitamin supplements.As a first step, the patient should cleanse the system by thoroughly relieving constipation andmaking all the organs of elimination - the skin, lungs, liver, kidneys and bowels - active. Enemasshould be used to cleanse the colon. For the first four or five days, the patient should take onlyjuicy fruits like oranges, grapefruits, lemons, apples, peaches, pears, pineapples and tomatoes.Vegetable juices are also useful, especially carrot juice.After a few days of an exclusive fruit diet, the patient may be given a nourishing alkaline-baseddiet. It should consist of 100 per cent natural foods, with emphasis on raw fruits and vegetables,particularly carrots , green leafy vegetables, cabbage, onion, garlic , cucumber, asparagus,beets and tomatoes. A minimum requirement of high quality protein, mostly from vegetablesources such as almonds, millet, sesame seeds, sprouted seeds and grains, may be added tothe diet.Dr. Ann Wigmore of Boston, U.S.A., the well-known naturopath and a pioneer in the field of livingfood nutrition, has been testing the effect of a drink made of fresh wheatgrass in the treatment ofleukemia. She claims to have cured several cases of this disease by this method. Dr. Wigmorepoints out that by furnishing the body with live minerals, vitamins, trace elements and chlorophyllthrough wheatgrass juice, it may be able to repair itself.Johanna Brandt, the author of the book ‘ The Grape Cure ‘ has advocated an exclusive grapediet for the treatment of cancer. She discovered this mode of cure in 1925, while experimentingon herself by fasting and dieting alternately in the course of her nine-year battle with cancer. Sheclaimed to have cured herself by this mode of treatment. She recommends a fast for two or threedays so as to prepare the system for the change of diet.After the short fast, the patient should have a grape meat every two hours from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.This should be followed for a week or two even a month or two, in chronic cases of longstanding. The patient should begin the grape cure with a small quantity of 30, 60, to 90 gramsper meal, gradually increasing this to double the quantity. In course of time, about 250 gramsmay safely be taken as a meal.Recent researches have shown that certain vitamins can be successfully employed in the fightagainst cancer and that they can increase the life expectancy of some terminal cancer patients.According to recent Swedish studies vitamin C in large doses can be an effective prophylacticagent against cancer. Noted Japanese scientist, Dr. Fukunir Morishige, and his colleagues whohave been examining the healing potential of vitamin C for the last 30 years, have recently foundthat a mixture of vitamin C and copper compound has lethal effects on cancer.According to several studies, vitamin A exerts an inhibiting effect on carcinogenesis. It is one ofthe most important aids to the body’s defence system to fight and prevent cancer. Dr. LeonidaSantamaria and his colleagues at the University of Pavia in Italy have uncovered preliminaryevidence suggesting that beta-carotene, a precursor of vitamin A may actually inhibit skin cancerby helping the body thwart the cancer-causing process known as oxidation.Recent studies from all over the world suggest that a liberal use of green and yellow vegetablesand fruits can prevent cancer. The 20-years old, ongoing Japanese study found that people whoate green and yellow vegetables every day had a decreased risk of developing lung, stomachand other cancers. A Harvard University study of more than 1,200 elderly Massachusettsresidents found that those who reported the highest consumption of carrots, squash, tomatoes,salads or leafy green vegetables, dried fruits, fresh strawberries or melon had a decreased riskof cancer.The other useful measures are plenty of rest, complete freedom from worries and mental stressand plenty of fresh, pure air.

Fight and prevent Cancer

CANCER

Cancer is a disease that starts in our cells. Our bodies are made up of millions of
cells grouped together to form tissues or organs, such as muscles, skin, bones, and
organs. Cancer occurs when there is an abnormal growth of cells, which can form
lumps or tumors, or can spread through the bloodstream and lymphatic system to
other parts of the body. Tumors can be either benign (non-cancerous) or malignant
(cancerous). Benign tumor cells stay in one place in the body and are not usually
life-threatening.

Malignant tumor cells are able to spread to invade nearby tissues and other parts
of the body, which is a process called metastasis. When a malignant tumor spreads,
it often causes swelling of nearby lymph nodes. Finding cancer early and getting treatment
before it spreads can greatly help improve your chances of survival.
While we think of cancer as one disease, it is actually a group of more than 100
different diseases. It can involve any tissue of the body and have many different
forms in each body area. Most cancers are named for the type of cell or organ in
which they start. For example, if it starts in the liver it is called liver cancer. The four
most common types of cancer in Canada are breast, prostate, lung, and colon.
A great deal of research has focused on the underlying causes of abnormal cell
growth. We do know that certain factors, such as free radical damage, genetics, diet,
and lifestyle, are involved. While many of us may blame our family history, only
about 5–10 percent of cancers are attributed to faulty genes. Having a family history
may increase your risk of certain cancers, but researchers feel that whether or not
those genes are “switched on” may depend largely on lifestyle and environment.
These critical yet often overlooked factors play a role not only in prevention but also
in the treatment and recovery from cancer.

Cancer is a very broad subject and it is beyond the scope of this chapter to discuss
each type and make individualized recommendations. The goal here is to provide you
with information on known risk factors for the most common forms of cancer, how
to reduce your risk of getting cancer, and how to improve your chances of survival if
you have cancer. If you have been diagnosed with cancer, it is critical that you consult
with your health care provider to create an individualized program. In many cases,
dietary and lifestyle strategies and supplements can be taken along with your other
treatments. Certain supplements, however, could interact with chemotherapy or other
medical treatments, so it is important to work with your health care provider.
Research shows that overall 30–35 percent of all cancers can be prevented by being
active, eating well, and maintaining a healthy body weight.

Cancer does not happen overnight. It may take months or years before there are any
signs or symptoms, and these symptoms can vary greatly depending on the location of
the cancer. Here are some key things to look for:

• A lump or area of swelling under the skin or bloating in pelvic area
• A mole that is asymmetrical, has an irregular border, is dark in colour, or grows in size
or thickness
• Change in bowel or bladder habits
• Diffi culty swallowing, upset stomach, nausea, or vomiting
• Persistent cough, hoarseness, or a cough that brings up blood
• Persistent low-grade fever
• Rectal bleeding or blood in the urine or stool
• Recurrent infections or wounds that do not heal
• Unexplained pain, especially in the bones, breasts, or pelvic area
• Unexplained vaginal discharge or bleeding
• Unexplained weight loss and loss of appetite
• Unusual fatigue, headaches
• Becoming sexually active at a young age or having multiple partners increases the risk
of cervical cancer.
• Exposure to environmental toxins such as tobacco, pollution, asbestos, heavy metals
(arsenic, lead, nickel), and radiation (X-rays), and handling of petroleum products.
Smoking is responsible for 30 percent of all cancer deaths. Chlorinated drinking water
increases the risk of bladder cancer. Some substances used in pesticides are classifi ed
as known, probable, or possible carcinogens.
• Excessive sun exposure or sunburn during childhood increases the risk of skin cancer.
• Genetics: Family history of cancer increases risk.
• Heavy alcohol consumption increases risk.
• High insulin levels (hyperinsulinemia) and insulin resistance increase risk.
• High intake of saturated fat, trans fats, and high-glycemic foods (refi ned starches and
sugar); low intake of fi bre; consumption of pesticides, food additives; nutritional defi -
ciencies (lack of antioxidants) increase risk.
• Lack of exercise increases your risk of several types of cancer.
• Obesity increases risk of breast, endometrial, cervical, ovarian, and gallbladder cancer
for women and colon and prostate cancer for men.
• Poor liver function can increase risk. The liver plays a key role in removing toxins.
• Stress hampers immune function and may increase the risk of cancer (particularly
breast cancer). Stress may also worsen recovery in those with cancer.
• Use of the hormones estrogen and progestin (HRT) increase the risk of breast cancer;
risk is greatest with higher dosages for long periods of time (longer than fi ve years).
• Weakened immune function, exposure to viruses and fungal infections increase risk.
Exposure to many different risk factors may increase a person’s risk more than the risk
associated with each individual toxin or chemical, so it is important to avoid as many
known risk factors as possible. As you see from this list, many of the known risk factors
are within our control.

GENETICS AND CANCER


There is evidence to show genetic inheritance has very little to do with who gets cancer.
Researchers looked at a group of 44,778 pairs of twins from Finland, Sweden, and
Denmark, in order to assess the risks of cancer for the twins of people with cancer. The
researchers concluded that inherited genetic factors make only a minor contribution to
the susceptibility of breast, prostate, and colorectal cancer. More importantly, they concluded
that environmental factors make a major contribution to all of the 28 anatomical
sites of cancer studied (New England Journal of Medicine, 2000: 343; 78–85)
.
DOCTOR’S ORDERS


The treatment of cancer depends on the location, stage of cancer, your existing health
status, and many other factors. Today there are numerous options for medical treatment
including chemotherapy, radiation, surgery, and hormone therapy.
There are a variety of important screening tests that can help in the early detection
of cancer, such as:
• Breast self-exams, mammograms, and thermography scans
• Digital rectal exams
• Pap test (for cervical cancer) and pelvic exam
• Prostate exam and PSA test
• Skin exam
• Testicular exams

NATURAL PRESCRIPTION

TAKE YOUR POWERPLUS PRODUCTS


Numerous studies have shown that good nutrition and various lifestyle measures can significantly reduce the risk of cancer. For those who have cancer, a good nutritional program can
help prevent weight loss, aid digestion, support immune function, and boost energy levels.
Supplements can also play an important supportive role.

Dietary Recommendations


Foods to include:
• Boost fiber intake: aim for 25–30 g daily of soluble and insoluble fi bre. Eat 2 tbsps of milled
fl ax-seed every day: it provides fiber and contains compounds that help in the prevention
of cancer. Recent research found that it can also slow the growth of prostate cancer.
• Choose free-range poultry and wild (not farmed) fi sh, beans, and legumes.
• Choose healthy fats such as olive oil and fl axseed oil.
• Drink green tea, which is a potent antioxidant, and studies have linked drinking green tea
to a lower risk of several cancers.
• Drink lots of purified water.
• Eat cancer-fighting foods such as broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, kale,
tomatoes, garlic, onions, and carrots.
• Eat cancer-fighting herbs and spices like ginger, cayenne, rosemary, oregano, and cur-cumin.
• Eat lots of vegetables and fruit (10 servings daily). Choose organic produce as much
as possible to avoid ingestion of pesticides. Foods that contain the highest amounts of
pesticide residue include peaches, strawberries, apples, spinach, nectarines, celery, pears,
cherries, potatoes, peppers, and raspberries. If organics are not available or cost-prohibitive,
wash your produce with lots of water and scrub the skins. This will also help eliminate
harmful bacteria.
• Eat small, frequent meals, which are easier on digestion and also help improve blood sugar
control.
• Fermented soy products (tofu, tempeh and miso) appear to have cancer-fi ghting properties.
• Ginger tea may be helpful for managing nausea caused by chemotherapy.
• Yogurt and fermented dairy can aid digestion and intestinal function.
Consider doing a detoxification program, such as a juice cleanse. See Appendix C for more
information.

EAT YOUR FRUITS AND VEGGIES


Overwhelming evidence from numerous clinical trials indicates that a plant-based diet
can reduce the risk of cancer. In 1992, a review of 200 studies showed that cancer risk
in people consuming diets high in fruits and vegetables was only one-half that in those
consuming few of these foods. It is clear that there are components in a plant-based
diet that can reduce cancer risk, but few Canadians get the recommended intake of
these foods (Nutrition and Cancer, 1992; 18 (1): 1–29).

Foods to avoid:
• Reduce intake of saturated fat to less than 10 percent of total calories by limiting animal
and dairy products. Avoid trans fats (found in many processed/snack foods and fried
foods) completely. Read labels carefully.
• Avoid preservatives (nitrates and sulphites) and chemical food additives.
• Deli meats (bologna, salami) and hot dogs are full of nitrates and other chemicals that are
associated with cancer and poor health.
• Eating charred meat (BBQ) and well-done meat has been associated with increased risk of
breast cancer (see below).
• Minimize alcohol, as it is hard on liver and immune function. Heavy drinking increases the
risk of cancers of the mouth, esophagus, breast, colorectal, and stomach. If you drink, limit
yourself to one or two drinks daily and choose red wine as it contains antioxidants that
may offer cancer-protecting properties.
• Minimize eating sugar and refi ned starches, which quickly raise blood sugar and insulin
levels, increasing the risk of insulin resistance, which is associated with increased risk of
certain cancers.

BBQ MEAT AND CANCER

Women who consistently eat well-done steak, hamburgers, and bacon have a 4.62
times increased risk of breast cancer. This conclusion was drawn from 41,836 women
who took part in the Iowa Women’s Health Study (Journal of the National Cancer Institute,
1998; 90 (22): 1724–1729). Marinating meat helps prevent the formation of these
carcinogens. Marinades that contain olive oil, vinegar, garlic, mustard, lemon juice,
rosemary, oregano, and curcumin have been to shown to be ideal. Meat should be
marinated for at least two hours.

Lifestyle Suggestions


• Get regular exercise. Aim for one hour of moderate-intensity activity each day, such as
walking, cycling, or swimming.
• Don’t smoke, and avoid second-hand smoke and highly polluted areas.
• Manage your stress. Try yoga, meditation, and breathing techniques.
• Drink purified water. Several long-term studies have found that drinking chlorinated tap
water increases the risk of cancer, particularly bladder cancer.
• Avoid storing food in soft plastic containers. Use glass or hard plastic (which contains highdensity
polyethylene).
• Minimize exposure to dangerous palates (see next page). Ask manufacturers about
non-vinyl hard flooring alternatives, and consider other types of materials such as natural
flooring and fabric shower curtains.
• Use stainless steel cookware. All non-stick cookware is made up of a chemical called PTFE
(polytetrafluoroethylene). When heated to high temperatures (greater than 572°F), they
can create fumes that contain a suspected cancer-causing chemical, tetrafluoroethene-TFE.
• Don’t spray pesticides on your lawn. Look into natural methods of weed control. Don’t
let your children or pets on lawns that have recently been sprayed with pesticides as they
can inhale the fumes and absorb the chemicals through their skin. Signs are posted when
lawns are sprayed.
• Be sun smart. Wear sunscreen with at least SPF 15, and don’t forget to apply it to your ears
and the back of your neck. Wear a wide-brim hat and sunglasses when outdoors.
• Massage and acupuncture may be helpful for reducing stress and nausea associated with
chemotherapy.

PHTHALATES: CANCER-CAUSING PLASTICS

Phthalates (pronounced THA-lates) are a group of chemicals often called “plasticizers,”
which are used in a variety of products, including polyvinyl chloride (PVC) products.
Phthalates are added to PVC products to make them soft and flexible. Phthalates are
associated with a number of health problems, including liver abnormalities, cancer, and
fertility problems. There are many different types of phthalates. The most widely used
is DEHP, which is found mostly in PVC plastics (vinyl fl ooring and medical plastics such
as IV bags and tubes). DINP is another phthalate, which is also used in PVC plastics,
including children’s toys. Guidelines suggest that DEHP and DINP shouldn’t
be used in items that are likely to be placed in children’s mouths, but manufacturers
aren’t legally bound by these guidelines. Many suppliers of baby bottles use phthalate-
free substances such as polypropylene (recycling code 5), but be sure to check with
the manufacturer or use glass bottles. For nipples and pacifi ers, choose those made of
silicone or latex. In cosmetics, DBP, DEP, and DMP are the phthalates most often used.

Simple ways to save money and be healthy as well

There are things we can avoid in our daily lives and in return save money and be healthy as well.

1. Soft drinks

Monthly savings = php300

Cola drinks and other soft drinks contain harmful chemicals that causes diabetes,obesity tooth decay and ulceration. Just imagine when you pour softdrink on pork. Worms on it will surface. If you soak shoe tacks and teeth to softdrink it will melt after 24 hours.If you pour it on a dirty bowl of your comfort room it will be clean after an hour.The acidity of it is very high.
If you really want to have a taste of softdrink you drink tablespoon and let it stay in your mouth then drink cold water.The feeling is the same without the harmful side effect.

2. Monosodium Glutamate

Monthly Savings = php60

This food enhancer will kill a dog if you feed 1 sachet of it because the brain will not withstand the chemical content.In human it causes alzheimer's disease and cancer.Salt and pepper is a good replacement.

3. Deodorant

Monthly Savings = php1500

Deodorant has harmful chemicals not intended to enter the body but may enter immediately when directly applied to the armpit. Since we have pores on our skin.It is better to use alum blocks or "tawas" in the Philippines.

4. Synthetic drugs or medicine

Monthly Savings = php1000

The by products of medicines deposits on the liver causing liver cirrhosis and liver malfunction and hepatitis.A simple headache need no immediate medicine intake as cure. In many cases headache is caused by lack of water and oxygen.Drinking a glass of water and going to a properly ventilated place with fresh air will solve the problem.

5. Cigarette

Monthly Savings = Php60 / based on 1 stick per day consumption

Contains thousand of foreign materials harmful to the body.Some of them are nicotine, tar,carbon monoxide. One stick per day take 10 minutes of our life.

6. Instant Noodles

Monthly Savings = Php240

Eating instant noodles continually for six months will result kidney problem.It has salt and MSG and other preservatives that damage the kidney.

Doing this measures will save us about Php3160 or about USD65 a month an become very physically fit.

How sweet it is to be healthy


Sugar is needed by our body to maintain the energy level it requires to perform organ functions.Fructose from fruits is the good type of sugar beneficial for digestion and strengthening of the nervous system.It is a monosaccharide which is the natural form of sugar.White sugar and other sweeteners is the type of sugar called disaccharide which is known to cause cancer.The most dangerous type of sugar is the polysaccharides from modern day rice. One cup of rice is equivalent to 10 tablespoons of white sugar.It is the leading cause of diabetes in the Philippines.Unlike the rice available in early days which grows for six months which is very healthy the present day rice is chemically enhanced already. This sugar thickens the blood thus resulting to high blood pressure diabetes and stroke. Considering the fact that white sugar is sweeter than rice the level of sugar is higher on rice.
To prevent diabetes avoid disaccharides and polysaccharides.Eat fruits like papaya,guava,banana and other fructose rich fruits.Powerplus products like the power C,GSOE helps the body to control sugar level inside the body.

Arthritis :Root cause and how we can fight it.


One of the diseases that is affecting aging people is arthritis.Arthritis actually means joint (arthr) inflammation (itis). Arthritis can be used to define a group of more than 100 rheumatic diseases and other conditions that can cause pain, stiffness and swelling in the joints or any part of your body.

Some of the types of arthritis:
- gout
- tendonitis
- bursitis
- polymyalgia rheumatica

Understanding the source of this disease will help people understand what medications to give.Synthetic drugs have side effects that destroy main organs like kidney and liver.
The liver plays a major role in metabolism and has a number of functions in the body, decomposition of red blood cells, plasma protein synthesis, hormone production, and detoxification. The liver is also the largest gland in the human body. It lies below the diaphragm in the thoracic region of the abdomen. It produces bile, an alkaline compound which aids in digestion, via the emulsification of lipids It also performs and regulates a wide variety of high-volume biochemical reactions requiring highly specialized tissues.
When the liver is overwhelmed by so many free radicals, toxins and by products of synthetic drugs it will deposit on the liver and become part of it causing cirrhosis thus making the functionality of the organ to diminish. The liver also produces a chemical purine the deposits on the joints and destroy the natural lubrication of it resulting to friction which will lead to arthritis. Eating food with high uric acid also aggravates this occurrence.
Glutathione is needed by our body in order to clean the liver after this it will be strengthen by grape seed oil. When the liver heals the result is awesome.You will have a younger skin and strong physical condition as well.
