Some lifestyle tips

Some tips on lifestyle to remain healthy.

Copied and pasted from a forwarded mail - which, I am told by a reader, is actually a hoax mail. The email message attributed the findings to John Hopkins research, which apparently is false. Please check out the link below to read the warning on John Hopkins website.


More warnings:



However, I found some of the lifestyle tips found in that message - hoax though - quite genuine - Things I have heard earlier from different sources - traditional old way of life which have been advised by earlier generations and some of which are still followed by many elders who keep themselves active and healthy. And so I thought that the mail I received could be geuine research findings. It is sad that the tips were circulated in a mischievious way using a reputed orgnaisation's name.

I still feel there could be some answer in traditional lifestyle and eating habits to some of the modern health complications. Therefore, I would like to keep those aspects of the earlier post from the hoax mail - just to keep a record of what I see as tips for healthy lifestyle - based purely on my own assumption that there could be some element of truth in these tips. Accepting or denying it is readers' choice.

So, here they go:

To overcome the multiple nutritional deficiencies, changing diet and including supplements will strengthen the immune system.

Milk causes the body to produce mucus, especially in the gastro-intestinal tract. Cancer feeds on mucus. By cutting off milk and substituting with unsweetened soya milk cancer cells are being starved.

Cancer cells thrive in an acid environment. A meat-based diet is acidic and it is best to eat fish, and a little chicken rather than beef or pork. Meat also contains livestock antibiotics, growth hormones and parasites, which are all harmful, especially to people with cancer.

A diet made of 80% fresh vegetables and juice, whole grains, seeds, nuts and a little fruits help put the body into an alkaline environment. About 20% can be from cooked food including beans. Fresh vegetable juices provide live enzymes that are easily absorbed and reach down to cellular levels within 15 minutes to nourish and enhance growth of healthy cells. To obtain live enzymes for building healthy cells try and drink fresh vegetable juice (most vegetables including bean sprouts) and eat some raw vegetables 2 or 3 times a day. Enzymes are destroyed at temperatures of 104 degrees F (40 degrees C).

Avoid coffee, tea, and chocolate, which have high caffeine. Green tea is a better alternative and has cancer-fighting properties. Water- best to drink purified water, or filtered, to avoid known toxins and heavy metals in tap water. Distilled water is acidic, avoid it.

Meat protein is difficult to digest and requires a lot of digestive enzymes. Undigested meat remaining in the intestines becomes putrified and leads to more toxic buildup.

Cancer cell walls have a tough protein covering. By refraining from or eating less meat it frees more enzymes to attack the protein walls of cancer cells and allows the body's killer cells to destroy the cancer cells.

Cancer is a disease of the mind, body, and spirit. A proactive and positive spirit will help the cancer warrior be a survivor. Anger, un forgiveness and bitterness put the body into a stressful and acidic environment. Learn to have a loving and forgiving spirit. Learn to relax and enjoy life.

Cancer cells cannot thrive in an oxygenated environment. Exercising daily, and deep breathing help to get more oxygen down to the cellular level. Oxygen therapy is another means employed to destroy cancer cells.
