In honor of National Cancer Prevention Month in February, stress and cancer expert Dr. Pete Sulack released a list of things one can do to reduce the risk of getting cancer.
Sulack, founder of one of the fastest growing chiropractic clinics in the nation, has studied extensively the connection between stress and cancer.
"You can't possibly avoid every single cancer causing substance, and you can't avoid stress — it is a fact of life. What you can do, however, is counterbalance stress with daily choices that at least give you a fighting chance," said Sulack in a statement to The Christian Post. "You can adopt practices that make your body more resilient in the face of cancer. It doesn't really matter whether you are genetically predisposed to contracting a certain kind of cancer. What matters is the genetic expression that comes from your daily choices, behaviors, and habits. It has been said that genetics loads the gun, but daily choices pull the trigger."
The author of Unhealthy Anonymous decided to provide a list of practical steps people can begin taking now to avoid abnormal cell growth which causes the deadly disease.
See the doctor's top ten list of major things to do to reduce your risk of cancer below:
We first need to recognize that stress is the true culprit in cancer and chronic disease.
The next step is to surround yourself with positive people, and people who will hold you accountable for your self-care.
Be careful what you put into your body. Eat well, avoid sugar, caffeine, alcohol and tobacco. Drink water, and replace grains and sugars with healthy fats and vegetables.
Increase your spinal mobility and exercise regularly.
Rest – your body needs sleep to reset brain function, restore strength, boost immune function, and repair cellular damage.
Detox – drink lots of filtered water, eat lots of vegetables and fermented foods. Take baths, fast, and work up a good sweat each day.
Keep your body alkalized – cancer thrives on acidity.
Help others! Those who have sought happiness through helping others have showed lower readings of inflammatory factors in their blood.
Control your thoughts.
The above mentioned list are things also explored in the book, Unhealthy Anonymous: Exposing the Greatest Threat to Your Health and Happiness. According to the book, stress is the biggest cause of cancer. Sulack outlines in the book simple steps to increase health and practical solutions to reverse the effects of stress.
Although Sulack has a great passion to see people get healthy in body and mind, he also has a heart to see people come to know Jesus Christ as their savior. The successful Bethel University graduate started a ministry called Matthew 10 International Ministries after traveling to the Hindu city of Rajahmundry, India, where he witnessed many people put their faith in Jesus' message of salvation.
According to the ministry's website, Matthew 10 has begun housing, feeding and educating hundreds of India's orphaned children on a 150 acre site. They hope to soon house 1000 children in the near future
