5 Easy Ways to Detox While in Cancer RecoveryAuthor: Diana Ross, E-RYT 500, Posted By: Breast Cancer Yoga Staff.

I want to share 5 easy ways to detox your body while in recovery, or anytime. These are the things I did, and continue to do that makes a difference in my health and I hope will make a difference in your health.

It is nothing new to state that breast (cancer) has touch so many lives. Either a family member, friend or neighbor may fall on this list. It is also not uncommon that cancer patients choose allopathic medicines and treatments.

These treatments usually involve potent drugs, chemotherapy and/or radiation therapy, or both. These treatments can leave the patient exhausted and emotionally drained. The cause of this fatigue is from the body being subjected to poisons, which indiscriminately attacked all the body cells over time. Knowing that detoxing the body is so important for better health and for recovery; it would be very beneficial to adopt a detox routine.

You can do it once a month, once every two months or when you feel the need to detox. It is as simple as developing a routine. Here are my ideas for better health for mind, body and spirit.

Dry Brush Method -Dry brushing stimulates the skin and circulates lymph fluid which is vital for overall health. The skin is the largest organ in the body and is responsible for a quarter of the body’s detoxification. The ability of the skin to excrete toxins is of paramount importance. Dry skin brushing helps to shed dead skin cells, which improves skin texture and cell renewal. Dry skin brushing increases circulation to skin, encouraging your body’s discharge of metabolic wastes, which greatly aids the lymphatic drainage of the entire body. When the body rids itself of toxins, it is able to run more efficiently in all areas. Dry skin brushing stimulates the lymph canals to drain toxic mucoid matter into the colon, thereby purifying the entire system. This enables the lymph to perform its house-cleaning duties by keeping the blood and other vital tissues detoxified.

Drink Water -Water Detoxifies. The quality of your tissues, their performance, and their resistance to disease and injury are linked to the quality and quantity of water you drink. The daily cleansing of wastes from each cell, the flushing of the alimentary canal and the purifying of the blood are all dependent on our water consumption. This helps to scavenge free radicals and reduce the oxidation of your body, in turn slowing down the aging process and overall health. Drinking ionized, or alkaline water has smaller molecule clusters than regular water. These small clusters are able to permeate your body’s cells and hydrate much more effectively. This makes the water and minerals better able to be absorbed in your body and flood out the toxins within. Good quality steam distilled water can pickup mineral deposits accumulated in cells, joints, artery walls, and remove them out. Distilled water cleans out impurities and replenishes the essential nutrient required for human life.

1 to 3 Day Body Detox Diet -Our body is exposed to numerous toxins daily as in air pollution, over processed foods, chemical cleaners and pesticides. A detox diet is when you lighten your daily food intake and provide your body the opportunity to rest, which then helps release toxins. A one to three day detox diet may range from simply focusing on whole foods to an all-out fast. Most detox diets ask that you eliminate items like caffeine, alcohol, added sugar and refined flours. For example, a fresh fruit diet emphasizes a healthy and easy way to digest the fruit and to assist in elimination. You may add protein powder to the fresh fruit which offers a high content of water, fiber, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. Eating just fruit, or just veggies help to dissolve toxins, enhance liver function and create better energy levels. Juicing is also a great way to feel light and to receive nutrients for the body which assist in detoxification.

Himalayan Pink Salt For Breast Cancer DetoxTake a Himalayan Salt Bath -To feed the body with healthy minerals and trace minerals take a pink Himalayan crystal salt bath. This rock salt is fuel for balancing and increasing energy. Your skin is an excretive organ that mirrors the condition of your intestines. When you take a salt brine bath, the salt minerals penetrate your skin with ions. This ion absorption will stimulation natural cell growth in your living cell layers. Bio-energetic weak points will be balanced and your body’s energy flow will be made active. Bathing with Himalayan salts will stimulate overall circulation, hydrates the skin, increases moisture retention, promotes cellular regeneration, detoxifies the skin, and helps heal dry, scaling, irritated skin. Salt water bathing reduces inflammation of the muscles and joints, relaxes muscles and relieves pain and soreness.

Breath Properly –Breathing properly detoxifies and releases toxins. Your body is designed to release 70% of its toxins through breathing. If you are not breathing effectively, you are not properly ridding your body of its toxins, i.e. other systems in your body must work overtime which could eventually lead to illness. When you exhale air from your body you release carbon dioxide that has been passed through from your bloodstream into your lungs. Carbon dioxide is a natural waste of your body’s metabolism. To improve overall well-being take 5 or 10 minutes a day to sit quietly and breath. This helps release toxins by full oxygen exchange. It also balances the stress hormone, cortisol and increases GABA levels.

Look at each of the 5 ways as opportunities to improve your lifestyle and diet. They will foster deep, and lasting transformation, and I promise you they will make you feel renewed.

The Role Of Detoxification In A Natural Cancer Treatment

Detoxification defines the removal of harmful toxins that accumulate in the body over a period due to different factors. It includes practices such as dieting, chelation therapy, fasting (consuming only specific fruits or foods while completely avoiding other given types), colon cleansing, and the use of specific food supplements. It is considered that detoxification is an important step to take before undergoing a natural cancer treatment that work.Detoxification and Cancer Treatment

How Does Detoxification Work?

Detoxification therapy is a procedure that aims at creating an unfavorable internal environment against the proliferation of pathogens, which include viruses, bacteria, yeast, fungi, and cancer cells. It is normally dependent on the type of detoxification being applied.

In fasting, the low blood sugar and high oxygen concentration obtained promotes a healthy environment for normal cells. At the same time, such an environment depletes the cancer cells of their favorable environment, which is of a high-glucose/low-oxygen concentration.

There are detoxification mechanisms involving the binding of toxic metallic elements by administered chelating agents or proteins. These are substances that bind and cause metallic toxins (such as mercury, copper, gold, zinc, and silver) to be rendered inactive, so as to curb their destructive or harmful effects.

Advantages of Detoxification with Different Types of Cancer

One study involving laboratory rats reported an inhibitory effect against the development of cancer of the liver.

What is the Effect of Detoxification on Metastasis?

When complemented with other immunotherapy procedures, detoxification procedures have been shown to assist in reversing metastasis. One example is in the treatment of bone metastasis prior to and after active immunotherapy, while applying the use of ultraviolet B-irradiated tumor cells.

Does Detoxification Enhance the Effect of Chemotherapy?

Many detoxification procedures (including clay therapy and others) are beneficial and enhance pre- and post-chemotherapeutic procedures. These detoxification strategies are aimed at preparing both the internal and external body environment of a patient so as to achieve optimal results during and after chemotherapy. It is also used as a pre-step for natural cancer treatment.

They prepare the body to stabilize faster during the recovery period after chemotherapy while one is waiting for the next treatment. Detoxification using a specific type of calcium clay has been reported to make some patients stable enough to complete their long chemotherapy series; many patients withdrew before completion.

Does Detoxification Enhance the Effect of Radiation?

Detoxification procedures have also been shown to enhance the achievement of optimal results in radiotherapy. It should be noted that being subjected to excessive radioactivity is potentially harmful.

Detoxification procedures, including the use of special clay and other adsorbents, exhibits the positive effect of eliminating excess radioactive elements. Studies by Raymond Dextriet have documented a considerable reduction of excess radioactive material in organisms; he used a Geiger counter to demonstrate that dry clay can significantly absorb much of the surrounding radioactive elements.

Can Detoxification Reduce the Side Effects of Chemotherapy and Radiation?

Detoxification and radiation often have adverse effects on patients. Detoxification helps to combat and reduce these side effects. Detoxification fights the following: the fatigue that is unresolved by resting (and that can last for weeks or months), and also pain due to nervous system damage.

In the case of radiation therapy, in which the patient suffers pain all over, and where burns and destruction of healthy tissue are inevitable, detoxification procedures (both topical and oral administrations) help to preserve the healthy tissue and the skin at the radiation site. It also helps to prevent adverse side effects to a significant degree.

If you are following a natural cancer treatment, detoxification can help you prepare your body for the treatment by enhancing the healing potential of your immune system. Shortly put, this preliminary step’s main aim is to remove all harmful substances from your body, preparing it to receive all the “soldiers” it needs to fight the disease.

Does Detoxification Have an Influence on the Immune System?

There are many detoxification formulations studied and known to be anti-fungal, antibacterial, and antiviral. These greatly enhance and strengthen the immune systems of patients. In one 1987 Zuin study, a detoxification formulation was found to promote the immune system functionality of patients.

Some formulations have been shown to promote the body’s natural resistance to infections, and to boostthe ability of the body. Both to withstand the invasion of pathogens (harmful microorganisms such as bacteria and viruses), and to recuperate.

Does Detoxification Improve Quality of Life and Survival Rate?

Detoxification greatly enhances wellness, quality of life, survival rate, and longevity of patients. There are insignificant levels of toxicity or side effects associated with approved detoxification procedures. These procedures primarily boost the ability of the body to eliminate toxins and pathogens. With a strong immune system achieved through detoxification, many patients have had improved wellness and a better quality of life.

In a few words…:

Detoxification is the removal of harmful toxins, which accumulate in the body over a period, using the available natural ways of excretion. It involves many varieties of therapies, but all of them aim to achieve that core objective.

Among the key benefits of detoxification is its capacity to boost the immune system’s functionality. Other benefits include

  • the regulation of proper metabolism( the breakdown, uptake, and utilization of food and other biochemical processes)
  • the immune-moderation
  • immune potentiating effects
  • the potentiating or enhancement of chemotherapeutic treatment effects.

Detoxification also leads to the reduction of adverse side effects; enhancement of radiotherapy treatment; inhibition of metastases or spread of cancer and other malignancies; survival of convalescent patients; and finally, improvement of affected persons.

Takeaway notes:

Effects of detoxification

  • Boosting the immune system
  • Elimination of pathogenic substances
  • Enhancement of healing and recovery
  • Stabilizes persons undergoing radio-chemotherapy

Detoxification and chemotherapy

  • Prepares a patient’s body for chemotherapy
  • Takes care of the body during and after the sessions
  • Enhances Mitomycin and 5-Fluorouracil

  • Eliminates radioactive elements
  • Preserves skin and tissue

Cancer types where detoxification has been proved effective

  • Liver cancer
  • Colon cancer
  • Skin cancer
