Cancer Basic Prevention and Protection
Almost daily the news reports toxic dangers in our environment. Common sense and basic prevention measures can really help protect us, and most of the these things are relatively inexpensive.
Water and shower filters are probably the most important. If you can\'t afford a water filter, boil the water (preferably in a non aluminum pan) for several minutes, cool and store in a glass jar/container with positive words written/taped on the outside.*
Shower filters help eliminate chlorine, and the carcinogen, chlorine gas. If you don\'t have a shower filter, it\'s not recommended to take extremely hot showers, or stay in longer than 10 minutes. (This helps to eliminate how much chlorine/gas that your body absorbs. Chlorine/chlorine gas has been known to cause everything from skin rashes, headaches, and allergic reactions to cancer.)
Use as many natural/non toxic cleaners like vinegar, hydrogen peroxide, baking soda, borax, and etc. Read labels and follow directions. There\'s a reason it says to wear a mask or gloves, use in a well-ventilated area, or use a dime size of that personal care product.
Eat, drink and be merry. A balance of veggies, fruits, grains, and moderate amounts of protein and laughter are known to support immunity. (Make sure to wash all produce and clean work surfaces properly to prevent spreading or cross contamination. Even \"blush\", which is a fungus on certain veggies and fruits like grapes, can produce sensitivities in certain people.)
Take medications as directed. Also use common sense with natural supplements; most labels on vitamins, minerals, and herbs list the maximum amount, not the minimum. (In other words, combining certain medicines and/or natural remedies can complicate or compete in the body and you may not be aware of this until the body is overwhelmed.)
If you suspect you\'ve been exposed, especially long term,** to a cancer causing agent, consult your doctor or practitioner. The sooner they know, the better potential and positive effects treatments have.
* water is highly structure-able. Simply put, water can take on or be programmed with all kinds of things, including positive words or energy. Our body is approximately 75% water, and all of us could use more positive input. Local libraries, books, and the web are great sources to find more about this fascinating subject programming your water with affirmations. When you drink your affirmations in the programmed water every cell in your body is able to heal itself when encouraged by positive comments.
**at this time it\'s estimated some carcinogens can take as long as 30 years to cause enough cellular or DNA damage to produce cancer. (Yes, the body does renew itself every so often, and how things can be in the body so long and still affect it will be discussed in the \"How Your Body Works\" series.)
