When I first found out that my Mom was sick I came across a natural alternative cancer treatment in the form of carrot juice!?! Who would have thought that something as simple as carrot juice could possibly be so effective. There are many testimonials from people that have used carrot juice to help treat cancer.
Carrots are a powerful vegetable with many cancer fighting nutrients such as Vitamins A, B, C, D, E, K, carotenoids, sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium, iron and phosphorus. This convinced me to persuade my Mom to give carrot juice a try. And so this was an introduction to my parents to juicing.
The beauty of juicing is that it’s an effective method to get more vegetables into your body. The body also absorbs nutrients quicker into the bloodstream through drinking rather than eating.
Juicing can cause detox symptoms such as headaches, fatigue, diarrhoea, constipation, flatulence, mood swings, aches and pains. This occurs when the body is adjusting to a much higher nutrient intake combined with fewer toxins to process and metabolize such as alcohol, caffeine, sugar, processed foods, meat and dairy products. With time and consistency these symptoms usually subside and are likely to disappear altogether.
As a cancer treatment, it is recommended to drink about 5 cups of carrot juice a day which equates to about 2.2kg or 5lbs of carrots. You could also add a piece of peeled ginger to vary the taste.
My Mom drank carrot juice daily for about 3 months. Drinking a lot of carrot juice will eventually make your skin turn orange. I believe that juicing is helping her. She eventually got fed up of drinking carrot juice so she has since changed to drinking green juice which is also effective. The green juice contains spinach, broccoli, celery, kale and cucumber.
Based on what I have read, I think it is more effective to fight cancer with a combination of treatments rather than following one conventional treatment method. Juicing encourages a healthier lifestyle. Drinking carrot juice or a vegetable juice consisting of anticancer vegetables could be the potent cocktail needed to boost your cancer treatment.
