What You can do to Fight Cancer Symptoms

What are the Chances of Getting Cancer?

However, even the increased risk does not necessarily mean genetics are completely at odds with you as much as the next person without a family history. If you are looking for ways to prevent cancer, implementing a healthy lifestyle is the way to go, and this means avoiding – or quitting – smoking, exercising, and eating healthy. Of course, most people are aware of this, but do not understand where to start from such broad statements. Whether you are at the beginning stages or anywhere else in between, take a look at these helpful tips that are helpful in preventing disease:

  • You Can Drink Caffeine: Caffeine tends to get a bad rep although there are numerous benefits surrounding it. Drinking 4-5 cups of coffee per day has been found to reduce the of cancer (not including decaf). Caffeine even beats tea in regard to proactive factors against carcinogens. Just remember: drink responsibly and don’t overdo it.

You can get enough of a workout completing brisk exercises, like walking, at least 2-3 hours out of the week. Burning off calories by getting your heart pump can reduce cancer risk by as much as 20%. Shedding as little as 10 pounds can make a difference in reducing the chanced of getting breast, endometrial, and ovarian cancer in women by regulating the production of female hormones.
  • Eat Clean: Eating the right balance of carbs, protein, and fat is crucial to a healthy, but you also want to watch our where you are purchasing your foods. It is best to get meat that is free of additives like hormone or antibiotics, which has been linked to cancer and endocrine complications. The same should also go for your produce, and you want to get those that are free of pesticides. If expense is an issue, you can clean your fruits and veggies by diluting it in water with vinegar.
  • Get More Greens: The darker the berry, the sweeter the juice, right? Well the same could be said for vegetables. Most dark, leafy greens are loads with nutrients that provide your body with everything it needs to keep the immune system strong. These veggies, such as kale and spinach, contain a large amount of chlorophyll and are loaded with magnesium. Magnesium affects signaling for cell, and if depleted, cells do things they shouldn’t such as drastically multiplying or dividing.
  • Use Filtered Water: Water is our friend, but it can also be a deadly enemy if we do not drink it as pure as possible. There is a risk of consuming water from a bottle due to chemicals that can seep into it, and millions of people Image result for filtered water prevent cancertoday do not understand the relationship it has with BPA. Getting a good filter for your home, and drinking out of glass, stainless steel, or a BPA-free container will help decrease exposure to carcinogens. Don’t forget to drink at least eight cups of water daily.
  • Watch your Folic and Calcium Levels: While we need folic acid, especially women to prevent birth defects, ingesting high amounts of the supplemental form (not through food) can actually increase your chances of getting cancer. Opposite to folic acid, most suffer from not taking in enough calcium, which has a lot of protective factors that can be remedied consuming dairy products or veggies. If you are unsure of how much you should take or where you stand for either, speak with your doctor.

Make Gut Issues a Thing of the Past

Problems in the Stomach

Our body has many ways in rejecting things that it does not want or speaks to us when we take ingest something we shouldn’t have. One of the simplest gastrointestinal (GI) problems everyone is likely familiar with is the stomach ache. As painful and annoying as it can be, it is a normal process that can because we are sick, anxious, or ate something spicy, sour or past the expiration date. Stomach aches are normally few and far in between and disappear after a few hours or days, but if you notice they are sticking around longer, you may be battling a bigger gut problem. Those with chronic gut problems may also have pain, nausea, bloating, and elimination troubles on a frequent basis. A person may have or risk developing leaky gut syndrome, chronic inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) or ulcerative colitis.  

Things to Avoid

Gut issues begin to surface when something is already off balance, whether it is hormones, bacteria, blockage, sensitivity to certain proteins, inflammation, or a combination of these. Depending on the type of GI issue you have, there are food triggers that you will want to avoid if they seem to be related to flare-ups. The FODMAP diet, for example, is great for those with IBD, and its purpose is to avoid consuming poorly absorbed carbs from fruits, veggies, wheat, sweets, and dairy.

While the gut is normally filled with bacteria (good and bad), too much of the “bad” bacteria can breed more bad bacteria, fungus, parasites, yeast, and viruses. Probiotics helps equip your gut with the “good” bacteria that it needs to promote a healthy environment, improve immunity, balance hormones, regulate appetite, and increase energy levels. One of the simplest way to make sure you are getting enough probiotics is by taking supplements. It is best to take probiotics as soon as you wake up on an empty stomach. This ensures that you are getting the most out of the bacterial str
ain. You can also consume foods that are a good source of probiotics such as:

  • Yogurt
  • Kimchi
  • Souerkraut
  • Kefir
  • Miso
  • Kombucha
  • Dark Chocolate
