Cancer is created by our lifestyle, and is reversed by our lifestyle!
If 90-95% is in our control, here is some things that we can do to improve our health in our day-to-day life!
Remember what I said about having the best 2.0 Badass Israeli Army that destroys everything that is not supposed to be there? We get to create it! It’s almost like a video game where you can pick the guys you want to fight with and equip them with super cool gears. We can do that with our nutrition (sleep, exercise, lifestyle in general does play a role as well). We either create the unfit cop that can’t outrun anyone, or we create the next Iron Man (Spoiler Alert : RIP Tony).
Food is Medicine
“One of the biggest tragedies of human civilization is the precedence of chemical therapy over nutrition” – Dr Royal Lee
Can’t stress this enough… Food is information. First, we need to feed our body the right food, mostly for our guts and therefore our immune system, but for everything else as well. If people took care of themselves as well as they take care of their cars, ribbons wouldn’t even exist!
Second, there are many studies that have been looking at the link between the consumption of certain foods and reducing the risk of cancer. Vegetables (especially leafy greens and cruciferous), some mushrooms such as Reishi, super foods such as Spirulina, herbs and spices such as turmeric (curcuma). Remember how sugar is creating blood flow for the cancer cells? Those foods are known to actually do the opposite : they cut any circulation to the cancer cells. By preventing them to grow, they will slowly die. This process is called antiangiogenesis.
Another interesting fact : apple and apricot seeds contain a selectively toxic component: Laetrile (B17) Selectively toxic means that it will only attack some cells, in this case, cancer cells. Leaving our healthy cells out of danger (unlike chemo that kills everything in its way). Those little things are crucial to know!

W is for Wine – sorry I meant Water!
If you didn’t know, we are 70% water (I hope everybody knew that?), and a 1% decrease in water can damage our DNA. If our DNA is damaged, we increase the risk of cancer, and it makes us age faster – that sucks!
Take Care Of Your Relationships
Our mental health has a huge impact on our physical health. Studies have shown that loneliness has a negative impact on our immune system.
Move baby, Move!
Not sure why I kept this one for the second to last, because it is without a doubt, one of my favorites. Exercise have be shown in countless of studies to reduce cancer and cancer recurrence. Regular physical activity supports a healthy immune system, increase insulin sensitivity, helps to keep a hormonal balance (estrogen dominance, rings a bell?), reduces stress, helps us to sleep better, and the list goes on. Byproduct of it : you’ll look better naked 😉 [insert picture here].
Research and Study!
If we want to be healthy, we need to study health! Reading books, listening to podcasts, understanding how things work, and why. Get educated on the subject, because counting on the health industry to do it, is like waiting for the bus where I grew up : never gonna happen!
Our body works as a whole, everything is interconnected. For instance: when we improve our sleep, we improve our circadian rhythm, our hormones are in check, our immune system functions better, ect… One positive change affects many things in our body. So if we keep all of those in check, we are tremendously reducing our risks of ever getting sick.
Almost there, keep going, part 3 is the Cherry on the Cake!
