Tip #14: Detoxify your body
Source: Cancer is Curable Now
Detoxification is a very important factor in dealing with disease in general but especially cancer. Nowadays, every person has a body overloaded with toxins…With every kind of detoxification program, when the toxins are released, the patient can experience side effects like headache, dizziness, nausea, stomach ache, etc. If you have any problems, please contact a physician for assistance. Immediately reduce the amount you are taking as the released toxin load is also a burden on the body.
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.
“The human body is the only machine for which there are no spare parts.”
Hermann M. Biggs
Editors note: The following study shows that sweating detoxifies dangerous metals and petrochemicals.
This study was designed to assess the concentration of various toxic elements in three body fluids: blood, urine and sweat. Blood, urine, and sweat were collected from 20 individuals (10 healthy participants and 10 participants with various health problems) and analyzed for approximately 120 various compounds, including toxic elements.
Toxic elements were found to differing degrees in each of blood, urine, and sweat.
Many toxic elements appeared to be preferentially excreted through sweat. Presumably stored in tissues, some toxic elements readily identified in the perspiration of some participants were not found in their serum.
Induced sweating appears to be a potential method for elimination of many toxic elements from the human body.
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.

You can detoxify your body with acupuncture. Acupuncture is a major treatment component of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), which has been practised since several ages ago. The principle behind acupuncture lies on the balance of Qi (pronounced as chi) or the vital life energy force that harmonises and nourishes the functions of the body.
The ancient Chinese physicians believed strongly that “a superior healer is one who treats a disease before it shows symptoms, while an inferior one treats a disease only after it has manifested pain or discomfort,” (Inner Classic of the Yellow Emperor, 100 B.C.). They proposed that prevention should be our primary focus for health rather than the treatment of a disease. Acupuncture was first developed and used as a preventative form of treatment.
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.
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.

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.
