Did you know that cancer is the number two killer among children ages five to fourteen years old according to the CDC? Just recently, I heard of a mother who was pregnant with her third baby and they saw a mass in the baby’s abdomen so they took the baby when the mother was only eight months along. The mass was a cancerous tumor that had spread throughout the baby’s body. The baby died shortly afterwards. I grieve for this poor family. This ought not be. Children in the womb being diagnosed with cancer?
I just had lunch with my parents yesterday and they said they never heard of anyone having cancer back when they were young but now we all know someone who has had it or died from it. It’s rampant! It’s killing our children so something must be done. No, it’s not finding more treatments for it which all have deadly side effects (like chemo). It’s living to the best of our ability to prevent it!
Dr. Mendelsohn, a pediatrician for 30 years and the author of How to Raise a Healthy Child in Spite of Your Doctor, wrote in 1984, “There is a growing suspicion that immunization against relatively harmless childhood diseases may be responsible for the dramatic increase in autoimmune diseases since mass inoculations were introduced. These are fearful diseases such as cancer, leukemia, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, Lou Gehrig’s disease, lupus erythematosus, and the Guillain-Bare syndrome…Have we traded mumps and measles for cancer and leukemia?”
It has been commonly stated that people live much longer now due to our advanced medical care and vaccinations. Is this true? Our first president, George Washington, lived until he was 67 years old and died in 1799, Thomas Jefferson until 83 and died in 1826, John Adams until 90 and died in 1826, James Monroe until 73, and James Madison until 85. (You can see HERE that the ages of the deaths of our presidents haven’t changed much even with the advancements in medical care and vaccinations.) Every single drug and vaccination has many side effects. Type 2 Diabetes and the cost to treat it just may bankrupt our country and it is completely reversible with diet (More than 100 million Americans have diabetes or prediabetes). Yet, Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, said, “Let food be your medicine and medicine be your food!”
I have been reading a book written by Dr. John R. Lee, as I mentioned the other day, and he wrote a lot about our toxic environment and how damaging it is to our health. He often mentioned the xenoestrogens that are in our food and environment that raise potent estrogen levels which cause havoc on our health. “Anyone who eats nonorganic meat and dairy products is eating these compounds and they are all potent estrogens. They can accumulate in our fatty tissues (breast, brain, and liver) and cause estrogen dominance, with all of its attendant symptoms.” They are found in detergents (including dishwashing detergents), cosmetics and other toiletries, perfumes, plastics, carpeting, computers, herbicides, spermicides, and even condoms. (I quit using spermicide in my diaphragm when I was 23 years old and read on the label that it could cause cancer!) Nail polish and remover are “one of the most insidious routes of solvent exposure and toxicity.” He encourages people to shop ‘green’ and eat organic foods, if they want to stay healthy.
God created our food perfect for us and if we want to avoid cancer, we need to get back to His perfect ways. My sister has just taught me to make sourdough Einkorn bread and it’s how our ancestors used to make bread. It is the superior ancient grain that hasn’t been hybridized, made without yeast (which is bad for you if you have gut problems), and is easily digestible. Yes, it takes a lot more time to make but working hard in the kitchen is a good thing. (I’m going to be making a YouTube video making it soon and it’s definitely a labor of love! The fermentation process predigests the gluten so even those who are gluten intolerant can eat this bread with no problems.) She has also taught me how to make fermented vegetables which are very good for your gut. (Health begins and ends in the gut!) She taught me how to make sardine salad (like tuna salad but much better) that tastes amazing! (Sardines are full of omega 3s and other healthy things, anti-inflammatory, and they aren’t contaminated like the larger fish.)
On my Instagram, I have been using it to teach women how to eat healthy since it’s so important. We all need to eat so why not fix food that is nutritious and great tasting for our family! Let food be our medicine. Work on building a strong immune system since this is what fights off disease. We all have cancer cells in our body but a healthy body can fight them off. Stop eating sugar, processed oils, packaged food, and all of the other health destroying foods and get busy in the kitchen making food that will help your family stay healthier. We do what we can and leave the rest in the Lord’s hands.
What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?
1 Corinthians 6:19
