Include healthy fats such as omega 3 found in flaxseed oil. Omega 3 oils protect us from cancer and inhibits tumor growth. Limit intake of omega 6 oils as they will promote the growth of an already existing tumor without the balance of omega 3.
Eat an abundant amount of fiber, increase the amount slowly. Start out with 20g and work your way up to 30-50g per day. Include both soluble and insoluble fiber such as cabbage, carrots, grapes, oatmeal, oatbran, sesame seeds, flaxseeds, beans, apples, tomatoes, strawberries etc.
Avoid anything processed ! Foods to avoid are anything sweet, sugar strongly stimulates cancer growth. Choose carbs & fruit with a low glycemic index. Dairy products have environmental toxins, are difficult to digest and many people’s immune systems are overtaxed by consuming dairy. Our bodies produce excess mucus which accumulates and is linked to conditions such as ear infections, sinusitis, asthma, and may cause tumor formation in the breasts, uterus or ovaries.
