Cancer and Detoxification
Detoxification is necessary because the sources of toxicity are many-fold.
They include the air that we breath, the water we drink, the food we eat, the furniture in our houses, the electromagnetic interference from our machines, the negative thoughts in our minds, the negative propaganda from the media and the lack of interpersonal connections and spiritual anchors. An excess buildup of toxicity in any form will certainly contribute to cancer formation. If you are looking for information about specific cancers, please visit here.
Dr. Sharda says that the good news is that the body, mind, spirit all have built in detoxification mechanisms. We just need to allow them to operate without constantly bombarding new toxins into our being. One of the simplest things we can do to help ourselves is recognizing the source of toxicity. Awareness allows us to chose to either continue allowing that toxin into our life or to remove that toxin.
FOOD remains one of the primary sources of toxicity in our world. The industrialization of the food supply and the heavy processing and fertilizer, pesticide and germicide use have resulted in highly abnormal and toxic foods. Sugar has contributed to the rise in obesity, but so has fructose and the non sugar sweeteners. Simply reading a label helps to identify the sources of sugar and other chemical toxins in the diet, and then we have the decision to either continue to eat as always or make small changes. Remember that many small changes become a lasting large change ! Read about the Glycemic Index of foods. Learn about the production process of food. Become aware of the impact that governmental regulation has on the production of food. Make your choice about how you will shop and eat. Eating true food is simple and easy, we humans have been doing this since we evolved. We have only been eating from a package or can for the last 70 years. Preparing food is a relaxing and meditative time that may be quite beneficial all by itself. Here is more information about alkaline water, ayurveda in cancer therapy, and nutrition.
SMOKING is the number one cause of lung cancer and many other cancers worldwide. There is no reason to smoke and many thousands of detailed studies demonstrating serious fatal harm. There are many ways to stop smoking. One of the most successful is to identify what purpose it serves in your life. If you can become aware of why you smoke (other than the obvious physical addiction), you then have the option to replace the tobacco with something more positive in your life. Remember small changes become large results.
THOUGHTS are amazing, and can either lift us to heights or take us down. What we believe we can work to achieve. If we believe that the world has options for a peaceful and healthy life we can make the choices that allow this reality to manifest. Meditation is a time honored and tested technique to clear the mind. A clear mind allows a clear path to emerge. Dr. Navneet Sharda wants to emphasize that just passive meditation is not enough as constant chemical toxicity will damage the neurons of the brain, imposing some limits to our thoughts. This is why the body, mind and spirit are interconnected and all things need to be addressed. Spirituality, prayer, belief in a higher power all give us strength and help to clear the mind as well.
ONLY YOU know the sources of toxicity in your life. A doctor or nutritionist may assist, as does the internet and books. The choice is yours to become aware of your particular toxins and only by becoming aware can you make a decision about how you handle it.
DETOXIFICATION is vital to health. The methods that the body uses are manifold and we only understand scientifically a small proportion of those methods. Humans have always needed periodic cleansing, just think about the sweat lodges of the Native Americans and the fasting and cleansing rituals of hundreds of cultures worldwide. We need to nurture the health of our detoxification organs. The major organs of detoxification include the SKIN, LIVER, KIDNEYS, GUT and BLOOD. Many protocols exist and I would recommend that you each find that which appeals to you and your situation. Remember that not everything in the Internet is legitimate, like use of alkaline water, so do a little studying before you dive into this. Some cleansing techniques are a little dangerous and the specifics are somewhat complex, a guide who is experienced in that particular technique may be a safe and best option. The path is a little unclear but should lead to a very healthy place-enjoy your journey.
