· Consider Oxygen Therapy
Oxygen starvation at the cellular level leads to disease. In fact, it is an undisputed fact that Cancer cells cease to grow when blood and tissues are sufficiently oxygenated. There are many ways to oxygenate the body, including a highly alkaline diet (80% raw), regular exercise, deep breathing, and adequate consumption of pure water. Hospitals in Mexico, Europe and Malaysia administer intravenous ozone, which is activated-oxygen, infusions with great success. There are also clinics in the United States; however, they operate under threat of FDA reprisal and confiscation of ozone equipment
· Join The Food Matters Community
Sharing your ideas and successes with other like minded people is a great way to learn and grow. Healing is as much about good nutrition and good decisions as it is about connecting with like minded individuals in a nurturing environment.
· Find A Support Group
When you initially embark on a natural healing route you may find yourself alone, especially if your family and friends urge you to just follow a conventional approach. Luckily, there are many Cancer support groups that will make you realize you are not alone on this journey and offer you hope and inspiration along the way.
