March is Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month
Cancer of the lower intestines (colon) and rectum is very common in both men and women.
If you think about it, everything you eat gets processed through and washes over the lining of your gut. And the lower intestines is primarily where the waste ends up as stool on its way out of your body. Therefore, the more chemicals in your diet, the more toxic chemical exposure to your digestive tract.
It really does matter what you eat.
5 Ways To OutSmart Colon Cancer And Have A Healthy Cancer Resistant Gut
1. Avoid Toxic Chemicals in Your Food
Do your best whenever possible to eat organic chemical-free, hormone-free foods to reduce damage to your intestinal cells.
2. Avoid red meat and iron intake
Red meat, high in iron, is linked to increased risk of colon cancer. The iron itself is damaging to the lining of your gut and the lining of your blood vessels.
Tip: If you are over 50, you should be sure your vitamin and mineral supplements are iron-free.
Try Twice Daily Multi for a basic iron free multivitamin. Just 1 cap twice a day.
The multivitamin I take myself is Metabolic Synergy, a high potency, broad spectrum supplement filled with herbs and antioxidants…a great cancer protective, longevity and health promoting, high powered formula. 3 caps twice daily.
These foods include yoghurt, kefir (some are non-dairy made with coconut or almond if you are dairy sensitive), miso, natto, kim chi and sauerkraut, all made from fermented beans and vegetables.
Take a Probiotic Supplement with acidophilus and bifidus daily as good insurance. Try Probiotic Synergy.
5. Eat more fresh garlic
Garlic is rich in plant chemicals and fibers that have anticancer properties and help health friendly bacteria to flourish, creating protection and super immunity.
Don’t just hope you won’t get colorectal cancer. Use this opportunity to take action and protect you and your loved ones.
