How integrative medicine eliminates the threat of cancer
(Naturalhealth365) According to the National Cancer Institute, one out of two men and one out of three women in the United States will develop cancer in their lifetime. (In other words, about 40 percent of the adult population will receive a cancer diagnosis at some point). This statistic (alone) should serve as a wake-up call for every medical professional and concerned individual about the direction we are going in as a society.
And, this (current) ‘direction’ involves poor quality food production techniques and dietary choices; the overuse of chemicals in every facet of life and, of course, the narrow-minded approach to treating cancer, which include radiation and chemotherapy that actually causes secondary cancers.
This is a very important message: Do not weaken your immune system with toxic medical procedures that destroy your ability to eliminate cancer cells. According to integrative physician Charles Gant, MD, PhD, there is a (much) better way. On the next NaturalHealth365 Talk Hour, Jonathan Landsman and Dr. Gant will talk about how to enhance the immune system, improve the detoxification and biochemical systems of the body and the most effective ways to overcome a cancer diagnosis – safely.

Medical alert: Is your doctor warning you about how environmental toxicity is linked to cancer?
What is behind the rising rates of cancer? (most conventionally-trained physicians avoid this topic – in depth)
Natural health experts have long warned of the dangers of environmental toxins – which seem to be bombarding us on all sides. Heavy metals found in drinking water, air, food, dental amalgams and vaccines; exposure to synthetic pesticides; and herbicides such as glyphosate – all contribute to the body’s toxic burden, and all carry health risks.
For example, triazine pesticides are associated with breast cancer, while carbamate and phenoxyherbicides are linked with lung cancer. Glyphosate – the active ingredient in Roundup weed-killer – is implicated in the development of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
Other contributors to cancer include physical and emotional stress, unfriendly pathogens, parasites, nutritional deficiencies and poor lifestyle choices like, smoking cigarettes and low physical activity.
According to Dr. Gant, individual genetic vulnerabilities – or oncogenes – can also raise your cancer risk.
However, there is hope. By assessing metabolic, infectious, gastrointestinal, neuropsychological, endocrine, immune, nutritional, toxicological and genomic risk factors, medical disorders such as cancer can be effectively addressed, Dr. Gant reports.
After testing for hundreds of risk factors, Dr. Gant attempts to “piece together the unique biochemistry of each patient,” allowing him to develop a patient-centered treatment plan that can help resolve cancer. And, that’s exactly what we’ll talk about on the next NaturalHealth365 Talk Hour with Jonathan Landsman.

Good news: Discover an important cancer-fighting tool that never hurts
Chronic inflammation is increasingly believed to contribute to cancer, as well as other devastating health conditions such as heart disease and diabetes. (to name a few)
But, certain foods are powerful allies in the fight against inflammation and oxidative damage.
Natural antioxidant plant pigments – such as anthocyanins in blueberries, beta-carotene in squash and carrots and lycopene in tomatoes – have been shown to have potent anticancer effects. Dr. Gant advises all of us to seek out organic fruits and vegetables (as much as possible) that offer many immune-enhancing nutrients to protect our health.
(These cancer-fighting foods are also a source of healthy dietary fiber – which has been shown to help prevent cancer as well). Note: too many people eat a (dangerously) low fiber diet that increases the risk of cancer.
To lower inflammation: try eating more berries, apples, plums, prunes and melons – along with cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, kale and arugula. Onions, garlic, nuts and seeds also have cancer-preventing effects.
Obviously, there’s much more to prevent (and reversing) cancer. But, the bottom line, when given the right information – you can overcome a cancer diagnosis. Share this news with someone you love and don’t miss the next NaturalHealth365 Talk Hour.
