We would like to share them here below as a guide.
7 Natural Resources To Explore for An Early Cancer Diagnosis
A Quality Juicer
Juicing can be critical for cancer patients – it helps deliver life-giving nutrients to the cells and eliminates toxins. This simple process builds immunity, helping activate the body’s own healing mechanism. A good quality ‘cold-pressed’ juicer is an essential tool in the kitchen.

A Holistic Dentist
The mounting evidence connecting the incidence of infected root canals and cancer is profound. This is an area that Dr. Gerson and Dr. Joseph Issels considered vitally important. Get to a holistic dentist and have your teeth checked.
An Immunity Booster
Supplementing your diet with essential immune-boosting nutrients is an essential part of any healing program. Learn more about synthetic vs. natural whole-food supplements and what might suit you best.
There are countless studies showing that by simply increasing your vitamin and mineral intake you can promote mental clarity, weight loss, boost your immunity, reduce stress, prevent cancer and other diseases, combat depression, lower blood pressure, reduce cravings, increase energy levels, improve sleep, and regulate digestion. Given this information is it little wonder that many experts now advise that an all-round supplementation program, in conjunction with a healthy diet, is a savvy health choice. The following supplement recommendations will cover the basic building blocks of a robust supplement program (recommended by Holistic Nutritionist Patrick Holford): A high potency multi-vitamin and multi-mineral; vitamin C; essential fats; probiotics.
A Top Guide
The Gerson Therapy is a welcome and highly recommended addition to the multitude of books that address healing of chronic conditions, including cancer, by using natural or alternative means. The specific approach is healing by a combination of high quality nutrition and total body detoxification. The Therapy is a total program and does require significant lifestyle changes, at least for the detailed therapy. Actually, lifetime lifestyle changes will be required to remain healthy, but these are easily done once one has gone through the detailed therapy.
A Holistic Treatment
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.
A Team To Help You Heal
Working closely with an holistic practitioner is an important part of the journey to healing. Keep in mind though that practitioners should not be seen as professionals you outsource your healing to. You do the healing, they simply provide advice and help you along the way!
Depending on what stage of Cancer you have been diagnosed with, it may be worthwhile to visit a clinic that specializes in natural Cancer treatment. View the list of Cancer clinics around the world that specialize in Nutritional Medicine for cancer.
