Ward off Cancer & Balance Your Digestive System with this Anti-Cancer Diet

I hear ya, all of these anti-cancer diets can get a bit confusing. But they all have one thing in common:  Whole Real Food.  

I am passionate about this subject because we believe a large part of why my husband’s brain tumor disintegrated was because he started feeding his body what it needed to reverse cancer.   Yes, I said reverse cancer.  

It’s called epigenetics, which is an area of study that shows that up to 95% of diseases have the potential to be reversed through diet, lifestyle and environment.  Contrarily, you can also contract disease through diet, lifestyle and environment.  This is so POWERFUL because this means you have more control over your health than we ever thought possible. 

Today’s anti-cancer diet is called the Candida Diet. This diet can get a little confusing because Candida (aka Candida albicans) is actually a fungus that is normally in your digestive tract, but expands when the balance of your gut flora is off. This is important because it’s been proven that 70% of our immune system is linked to the gut. So when your gut health is compromised, your immune system will not work at full capacity to keep you healthy.  Cancer is really a SYMPTOM of an issue with the immune system. 

Ok now that that is all clear, I’ll briefly explain what else an excessive amount of Candida can do to your body. When there is too much, Candida releases uric acid and acetaldehyde, which can cause brain fog, headaches, joint pain, as well as digestive issues and food intolerance. 

Candida grows when:

  • You are eating a high sugar diet (which includes forms of sugar such as alcohol, lactose in cow’s milk, refined carbohydrates, high fructose corn syrup)
  • After a round of antibiotics
  • When you’re experiencing high amounts of stress

The Candida Diet is centered around a low sugar diet. Eating a diet low in sugar – and refined carbohydrates because they turn to sugar when you digest them – will deprive Candida of the foods it thrives on.  Other culprits are, starchy vegetables, alcohol, vinegar, and fruits (because they’re high in sugar). Foods likely to contain molds such as aged cheese, peanuts, cashews, and mushrooms are also ones you should avoid on a Candida Diet.

For a handy guide, the Candida Diet website lists foods to eat and foods to avoid.

So what is Candida’s link to cancer?

There are many other doctors who feel that antibiotics play a large role in cancer because antibiotics destroy gut bacteria.  This allows fungus to grow, resulting in Candida growth. One doctor, Meinolf Karthaus, who studied Candida and cancer patients found three children who were diagnosed with leukemia who went into remission after receiving anti-fungal treatments. Another, Milton White, believed that cancer is a chronic fungus disease after he discovered fungal spores on cancer cells. 

Below are just a few supplements found on Amazon that you can take – along with a low sugar diet – to control your gut health and keep Candida from growing. Just knowing that there is a possibility that it can prevent cancer and even Alzheimer’s, is a reason to consider this diet.

Have you heard about or tried the Candida diet? I would love to hear from you in the comments below!
