WHAT TO DO WHEN YOU ARE DIAGNOSED WITH CANCER (contd.)
Long Island has been identified throughout the media as a cluster for autoimmune diseases & autoimmune thyroid diseases, specifically Hashimoto's thyroiditis. There have been a number of studies that actually look at the relationship between thyroid disease and cancer. And the direct relationship comes from the fact that the thyroid hormone is critical in stimulating the activity of certain cells that protect us from these abnormal cells. Certain cells called 'natural killer cells' and cytotoxic lymphocytes require thyroid hormone in its unadulterated form, in other words, not being attacked by antibodies, and not being too deficient in order to activate and to protect us from these abnormal cells. So there's a direct connection between thyroid problems and cancer problems.
PRIORITY 1: WATER FILTRATION
I recommend for all my patients as a starting point that they get a water purifier and that they only drink either good quality bottled water, preferably in a glass bottle, or that they use a good filter. There are several good ones on the market, but you have to make sure to check the filter regularly, to make sure that it's still working adequately for your needs. All the water you drink should be either filtered or bottled. If it comes from the tap it has to be bathing, that's another story and that's a bigger problem, and for that you're gonna need a whole house filter. The first thing you need to do is to stop putting more toxins into your system. So you wanna have clean water. Clean water is critical from the point of view of detoxification and from the point of view of allowing the enzymes to get from point A to point B in as quickly a manner as they need to do.consists of chemicals that were dumped there years ago by the aerospace industry, Grumman and the like, when they were building aircraft here and the space shuttle here and the lunar lander here and all sorts of things, and they just dumped these chemicals into the aquifer. Unfortunately, at Long Island, we only have one aquifer for the entire island. So a news daily showed this plume underneath Bethpage and they showed lines around it like a bullseye showing where the plume would be in five years, in 10 years. And in 15 years from now, it's gonna be all the way out to Montauk Point.
filtered, and you use that for drinking and for cooking purposes. For showering and bathing, that's another story and that's a bigger problem, and for that you're gonna need a whole house filter. The first thing you need to do is to stop putting toxins into your system-- and take in more clean water. Clean water is critical from the point of view of detoxification and allowing the enzymes to get from point A to point B in as quickly a manner as they need to do.
So next on our list, once we have the water situation covered, is to look at the kind of food that you're eating. I recommend that you eat organic food as much as possible. Here on Long Island, we have lots of good sources for organic food. Out east, there are whole farms, that grow organic produce. Places like Whole Foods and Wild By Nature, which have good organic produce tend to be more expensive but they have usually a bigger selection. Also, if you're going to eat protein in the form of eggs, beef, pork, what have you, they should be organic as well. Take the extra initiative and a little Google-searching to find a good butcher in your area or health food stores. Your diet should be as organic as possible-- keep things as clean as possible!
