Prevention for cancer recommendations and tips2019-01-11T10:22:21+01:00

Cancer is a disease which is unfortunately increasing in modern society, mainly in first-world countries. Statistically, worldwide cancer incidence could increase in the next 20 years up to 70% according in relation to registeredcases in 2012. Please go to WHO  to see the data.

With this information we conclude that the best method to treat both cancer and diseases in general is prevention. We must take care of our health day by day, which is something that many of us are forgeting. To do this, we have a few tips to help you.

WHAT COULD YOU DO TO CANCER PREVENTION?

REGULAR CHECK-UPS

Prevention for cancer, periodicallly tests

It is very important in cancer prevention to make regular check-ups, especially for certain types of cancer that statistically are more frequent like: breast cancer in women, prostate cancer in men and lung and liver cancer in those that have a genetic predisposition or have been smoking and had alcoholism habits.

It is recommended that you include in this check-ups, the detection of the diseases which may provoke cancer:

  • Epstein-Bar Virus, which is mainly transmitted through the saliva, can originate certain lymphomas, leukemia and esopharyngeal cancer.

  • The human papilloma virus (HPV), sexually transmitted, can cause cervical cancer in women and penis cancer in men.

  • Hepatitis B and C viruses, which can be transmitted by blood transfusion, can cause liver cancer.

  • Also the AIDS virus, although AIDS itself is a serious disease, may increase the possibility of certain types of cancer, including cancer of cervix.

  • Helicobacter pylori bacteria can mainly cause stomach cancer.

NUTRITION

prevention cancer, recommendations, nutrition

It is highly recommended to alkalize and antioxidate our body by adding to our diet foods that raise our pH and decrease the level of general oxidation of the body.

We must take into account what type of food we must add daily and eliminate of our diet:

What should I eliminate from my diet?

We must avoid at any cost processed foods because of their high impact in our future health, alongside with cow milk (we recommend to ingest vegetal milks like oat milk, almond milk or coconut milk), white refined sugar and flour (highly processed today because of its industrial process). We must also avoid pork, red meat and seafood because of its high acidic content.

WHAT SHOULD I ADD TO MY DIET?

  • Vegetables: Broccoli, spinach, brussels sprouts, cauliflower, celery, cucumber, green beans, beetroot, carrot, lucerne, garlic, onion, radish, pumpkin, algae like spirulina and chlorella, watercress, green wheat shoots, etc. We recommend vegetables with green leafs for their chlorophyll.

  • Fruits: Strawberries, currants, raspberries, avocado, apple, cherries, grapes, grapefruit, lemon, orange, melon, nectarine, pineapple, tomato, many tropical fruits such as banana and papaya.

  • Fish: Those that have omega 3, 6 and 9, like salmon, sardines, anchovies, mackerel, red mullet, trout, tuna or cod. We recommend to eat them grilled, avoiding fried fish as much as possible.

  • Meat and proteins: Meat is a good source of proteins and energy, preferably organic or from ecological farms to avoid ingesting hormones, antibiotics and other elements used for accelerated fattening. We recommend eating organic or ecological chicken and minimizing consumption of red meat (for example, one every two weeks)

    There are alkalinizing proteins in vegetables that can compensate the abscense of meat: almonds, millet, tofu and chestnuts.

  • Nuts: We recommend eating pistachios, walnuts, almonds and dried fruits like grapes and prunes.

  • Spices: Canella, ginger, curry, chilli pepper, mustard, unrefined sea salt and a lot of other herbs.

  • Sweeteners: Stevia, which is also alkalizing, is a good choice.

  • Minerals: Calcium, magnesium, potasium and sodium.

PHYSICAL EXERCISE

prevention cancer, recommendations, exercises

Physical exercise is a component of a healthy lifestyle and it has a great preventive and beneficial effect against a lot of diseases like tumors. It also regulates our lymphatic system, eliminates toxins, oxygenates the organism, stimulates blood circulation and generates endorphins, very beneficial for our state of mind. On the other hand the fat accumulation and the obesity as a consequence of a sedentary life and a bad diet have a relation with cancer as a causal factor in a 20% of the cases according to many medical studies worldwide.

We must perform regular physical exercise suitable for our physical possibilities, depending on our age, anatomy and physiology and our training experience.

BETWEEN 18 TO 30 YEARS OLD

It is an age in which the body is fully functional and can perform increasingly intensive exercises, taking into account the training experience of the individual as well as their previous physical condition. For healthy people of this age group we recommend, beside going to gyms and being advised by a coach, aerobic sports such as: swimming, cycling and jogging. We should gradually increase the intensity of the exercises, as long as there are no previous injuries on the back, legs or feet.

BETWEEN 31 TO 45 YEARS OLD

Practically the same exercises we have mentioned on the previous point, at this age it is highly recommended practising physical and controlled exercise, with moderation and responsability, avoiding overexercise or overcharge. Perform them every two days (for example Monday, Wednesday and Friday, stoping on weekends) with a maximum time of 60 minutes depending on the type of exercise.

BETWEEN 46 TO 55 YEARS OLD

For those people who do not perform or have never performed exercise, their best option is swimming because it promotes blood flow and does not overload the back, giving benefits for the muscles of the back and joints. They can also walk daily, if it’s possible for about an hour, always in a non-polluted place or environment such as a park, countryside or along the beach. Not whatsoever along a road due to pollution by the fumes of vehicles.

BETWEEN 56 TO 65 YEARS OLD

There are exercises that can be done at home without devises or equipment: stretching arms and legs seated and/or standing, rotation of the trunk and exercises of elasticity to stimulate muscles. It is also very recommendable to do hiking from 30 minutes to 1 hour at a fast pace (as far as we can, it’s just about walking a little faster than usual). The ideal places are where there is no pollution (field, parks, beaches, countryside etc.), this way we can gain more oxygenation and its efficient distribution all over the body.

MORE THAN 65 YEARS OLD

Very light arm and leg exercises are very suitable to make the blood and lymphatic circulation easier. Other low-intensity exercises and especially walking for at least 30 minutes a day, can be done without covering long distances.

Those who suffer some kind of disability, must have the advice of a personal trainer or coach along with medical personnel to advise you in each case.

GENETICAL FACTORS

prevention cancer, recommendations, genetical factors

In this sense one should ask himself/herself: “Do I have some genetic predisposition to develop cancer or some hereditary genetic mutation that could provoke me cancer?” First, you should look for cancer cases in your direct and indirect family. If so, it is very possible that we already have certain mutations that may increase the likelihood of contracting certain types of cancer.

In case there is a genetic possibility to develop this disease, our next step should be to confirm this predisposition with a suitable genetic test so that we are able to know which mutations we should consider, since there are treatments to inhibit those mutations and be able to minimize their expression in the medium-long term.

PSYCHOLOGY AND EMOTIONS

prevention cancer, recommendations, psychology and emotions

Psychological balance is very important for our organism and health. Stress, anxiety, states of extreme nervousness, depression and other emotional alterations can change directly our immunological and lymphatic systems, and indirectly they can provoke cancer and other pathologies and diseases. Acoustic contamination is another factor that may provoke psychological and physiological alterations.

What can we do for optimal psychological balance?

  • Social relationships (friends, family, relatives etc) are very important because they allow us to transmit certain personal problems that we should not suppress (traumas, labor issues, phobias and others).
  • Getaways to rural areas or free of noise and walks along the beach.
  • Practicing a sport (jogging, swimming, cycling) generates endorphins that are very favorable for our psychoemotional state.
  • Breathing exercises also help us control stress, nervousness and anxiety.

There are several relaxation techniques and psychotherapeutic therapies such as EFT, psycho-emotional therapy, among others. Although these must be administered by professional psychotherapists.
