Naturopathy offers a natural remedy to cancer
which comprises a complete change in diet, besides total elimination of all environmental sources of carcinogens, such as smoking and carcinogenic chemicals in air, water and food. The disease can be prevented and even treated by dietary programmes that include 'natural foods 'and the use of megavitamin supplements. As a first step, the patient should cleanse the system by thoroughly relieving constipation and making all the organs of elimination the skin, lungs, liver, kidneys and bowels active. Enemas should be used to cleanse the colon. For the first four or five days, the patient should consume only juicy fruits like oranges, grapefruits, lemons, apples, peaches, pears, pineapples and tomatoes. Vegetable juices are also useful, in particular carrot juice.
After a few days of an exclusive fruit diet, the patient may be given a nourishing alkaline-based diet. It should consist of 100 per cent natural foods, with emphasis on raw fruits and vegetables, particularly carrots, green leafy vegetables, cabbage, onion, garlic, cucumber, asparagus, beets and tomatoes. Almonds, millet, sesame seeds, sprouted seeds and grains, may also be added to the diet. Grape diet is an effective treatment of cancer.
After a short fast, the patient should have a grape meat every two hours from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. This should be followed for a week or two even a month or two, in chronic cases of long standing. The patient should begin the grape cure with a small quantity of 30, 60, to 90 grams per meal, gradually increasing this to double the quantity. In course of time, about 250 grams may safely be taken as a meal.
Recent researches have shown that certain vitamins can be effectively employed in the fight against cancer and that they can increase the life expectancy of some incurable cancer patients. A mixture of vitamin C and copper compound has lethal effects on cancer. According to several studies, vitamin A exerts an inhibiting effect on carcinogenesis. It is one of the most important aids to the body's defence system to fight and prevent cancer. Recent studies from all over the world suggest that a liberal use of green and yellow vegetables and fruits can prevent cancer.
