CTOAM’s Cancer Expert Explores the Connection Between Meditation and Cancer… “When I was going through treatment, I started meditating every day. I’d never done that before but Alex suggested it and some other friends of mine did, too. It definitely helped.

Eat to Beat Cancer with Nutraceuticals

Published by on February 18, 2019 1 Comment

Many cancers are profoundly impacted by diet and lifestyle behaviours. For some cancers, preventative actions – like a nutraceutical diet or targeted exercise program – have been shown to reduce the chance of cancer developing by 80%+. What Are Nutraceuticals? Nutraceuticals are parts of foods or supplements that have a proven role in regulating the genes and processes involved in cancer. Each week, new studies emerge that demonstrate the positive impact of nutraceuticals in cancer treatment and prevention. At CTOAM, we have seen remarkable results in our clients after just one week on a nutraceutical diet.

The idea of a ‘complete cure for cancer’ is fundamentally problematic when you understand what cancer actually is. Science Based Medicine explains: “Cancer is not one disease, but a category including many related diseases. Different cancers involve different tissues, different mutations, and different behaviors and features. While some treatments are effective against a variety of cancers, there is no one treatment effective against all cancers (let alone a cure for all...
