When you or a loved one are first diagnosed with cancer it can be a very challenging time. However it can also represent a wonderful opportunity. An opportunity to learn about the healing powers of the body. Natural approaches to treating cancer have been proven to work over the long term as they address the underlying cause of the illness. Whether you have gone down the path of conventional medicine or are considering treatment options, being equipped with the proper information you will be able to make well informed decisions for your health. In researching for Food Matters the documentary we've come across countless resources and lifestyle considerations that we consider important in a quest to healing. We would like to share them here below as a guide.

  • Consider Oxygen Therapy

    Oxygen starvation at the cellular level leads to disease. In fact, it is an undisputed fact that Cancer cells cease to grow when blood and tissues are sufficiently oxygenated. There are many ways to oxygenate the body, including a highly alkaline diet (80% raw), regular exercise, deep breathing, and adequate consumption of pure water. Hospitals in Mexico, Europe and Malaysia administer intravenous ozone, which is activated-oxygen, infusions with great success. There are also clinics in the United States; however, they operate under threat of FDA reprisal and confiscation of ozone equipment.

  • Join The Food Matters Community

    Sharing your ideas and successes with other like minded people is a great way to learn and grow. Healing is as much about good nutrition and good decisions as it is about connecting with like minded individuals in a nurturing environment.
  • Find A Support Group

    When you initially embark on a natural healing route you may find yourself alone, especially if your family and friends urge you to just follow a conventional approach. Luckily, there are many Cancer support groups that will make you realize you are not alone on this journey and offer you hope and inspiration along the way.
