As I was writing the blogs these past two weeks, it brought me back to the tools that worked for me the most during my cancer battle. I want to share those with you now more then ever, because I hear it in your emails and feedback – you need this.
When I received my cancer diagnosis, I turned to raw foods and juicing. I juiced myself silly and when I learned how powerful carrots are in fighting cancer I even juiced myself orange. I believed in it then and I still do now. I hear your stories all the time that let me know you feel the power of juicing as well.
The juice recipe I’m sharing this week is powerful. I combined three of my favorite detoxifying cancer fighters: burdock root, turmeric, and ginger with the force of carrots, and soften the punch with a juicy apple. Don’t take this tasty juice lightly, it is a true powerhouse of phytochemicals.
Burdock Root – A medicinal herb that has powerful anti-tumor, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, and anti-microbial properties. Burdock root is one of the top recommended herbal remedies for cancer due to the belief that it can stop cancer cells from metastasizing
Turmeric – Turmeric’s active ingredient circumin provides anti-inflammatory, antifungal, and anti-cancer properties. Research has found circumin to selectively kill cancer cells while maintaining healthy cells to help the body suppress tumor formation.
Ginger – A strong anti-oxidant and free radical eliminator. Numerous studies have found ginger to possess anti-emetic effects to combat side effects of chemotherapy and radiation and has a lot of research in the works to further prove cancer prevention chemicals.
Carrot – A key phytonutrient in carrots, can inhibit the growth of colon cancer cells and prevent several other cancer’s including cervical, bladder, and breast cancers and the antioxidants provided from carotenoids help prevent oxidative damage.
Apple – Apples are fruits are high on pectin which reduces the risk of heart disease and cancers.
Sea Salt (iodine) – Iodine may be an important factor in this low rate of breast cancer amongst Japanese women and has been used as a preventative factor for ovarian, uterine, prostate, and thyroid gland cancers. Iodine tends to be antibacterial, anti- viral, anti-parasitic and antifungal and that it enhances immune function
