- Eat Raw Vegetables
The body needs to be alkaline and the easiest way to do that is to eat vegetables from all of the colors of the rainbow. At least 50% of them should be raw. Even better if you can make your way up to 80% raw. Otto Warburg won a Nobel Price for discovering the connection between oxygen and cancer. Cancer thrives in an anaerobic environment. Cancer cells cannot live in an aerobic environment. How do we create an aerobic environment? Eat lots of raw vegetables, preferably local, preferably organic, and feed your cells an oxygen rich diet.
- Your body needs a full house of enzymes to thrive.
“Enzymes are tiny protein catalysts that create complex chemical reactions in the cells of our bodies.”[i] They help us attack viruses, bacteria and cancer cells. “Dr. Edward Howell, enzyme pioneer, states that enzymes make all life possible.”[ii] Glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup which is sprayed on conventional crops and GMO crops, kills enzymes. There are no enzymes in processed or fast foods. You need raw veggies. You should also use enzyme supplements. Use a supplement that includes
Increased Amylase for carb digestion
Increased Protease for protein digestion

- Avoid caffeine and increase your Magnesium intake.
Caffeine blocks Magnesium. Our soils where we grow food have become deficient in magnesium. (and all minerals) Magnesium is essential for 325 enzyme reactions in the body. It plays a major role in detoxification and is important for minimizing damage for environmental toxins, heavy toxic metals and other toxins. You need a good Magnesium supplement. My doctor just recommended OptiMagNeuro because it penetrates the blood brain barrier. Previously I was using Suzie Cohen’s Script Essentials Magnesium, which is Magnesium Malate, and which I also recommend. Suzie Cohen’s Magnesium is fabulous for keeping your pipes unclogged. I often use both.
- Get your Vitamin D level checked.
The Vitamin D added to milk is synthetic D 2, and is not used well by the body. You probably need Vitamin D3; deficiency is a cause of cancer.
- Avoid Milk.
Milk is an acidifying protein, so the body sacrifices the bones by pulling out the calcium in the bones by neutralizing the acid to save the kidneys. Pasteurization increases the acid level. If you want to still drink milk, the most nutritious milk is whole raw milk from grass fed cows. It is not as risky as once thought and has many benefits over conventional pasteurized milk. If it is organic grass fed cow milk, it also has avoided most of the hormones, antibiotics and pesticides/herbicides that are in factory cow milk.
- Avoid Sugar and most Alternative Natural Sweeteners.
Sugar and artificial sweeteners are linked to cancer. For sweet, I recommend brown rice sugar, stevia, real honey preferable from a local source, and maple syrup. Stay away from diet soft drinks and regular soft drinks. There is no food value and they do your body harm.
- Stay away from processed foods and fast foods.
They are loaded with synthetic ingredients, and have no food value. They have zero enzymes, so the body has to steal enzymes from other areas of the body to process them. The chemicals are actually doing your body harm. Real food can help heal you. Eat lots of vegies, include all colors, buy local and organic and make sure 50% of what you eat is raw.
Your body heals 8 times faster with exercise.[iii] Exercise floods the body with oxygen and flushes out toxins through the lymphatic system. Lymph surrounds every cell but has no heart to clear out the debris, which is why the body needs exercise. Without exercise, the tissues suffocate because the acidic waste is stagnated.
- Unclog your pipes
Yep, I am talking about poop. Your goal is to go 3 times a day. Otherwise it gets stuck on your intestinal walls and prevents maximum nutrient absorption.
In addition to your regular exercise, (in class, Tao, Yoga, weight training, aerobics, resistance, stretching) the best way for the lymph system to flush out toxins is to rebound. I love to rebound. You can jump or even sit on the rebounder and just bounce, but it will make a difference in how your lymph system can support you. Tao exercise is also a great way to get the lymph system to drain. Also consider the belly button wand.
Alternative detoxing procedures:
- Steam baths
- Epson salt baths add baking soda and lavender essential oil (not synthetic)
- Dry brushing
