If you are either fighting cancer or wanting to prevent it, a great first step towards a holistic and nutritional approach is detoxing.
The idea here is to rid your body of toxins. When you do this, you are giving yourself a fresh start, and the good nutrition you are hoping to absorb into your body will have a much better shot at succeeding. When your body is fighting environmental toxins, toxins in your food, fluoride in your water, chemical-laden sunscreen seeping through your pores, AND fighting free radical damage or disease in your cells, it is very hard for it to re-build healthy cells.
Cleansing or detoxing gives you the fresh start you need to start building those healthy cells, and to start fighting the unhealthy ones. There are many cleanses out there, and many of them are very good. I am offering a 10-day, whole foods cleanse (so you won't go hungry!) starting on Sunday, June 3rd. Tomorrow is preparation day. You can shop, soak your grains, make your salad dressings, and get ready for 10-days of deeply healthy eating and detoxing!
Please see The Nourish if you are interested in participating! If not, I'll be offering another one in the fall.
