How to Starve Cancer Out of Your Body


Addressing your diet should be at the top of your list, and rather than adding certain foods, you'll want to eliminate the most dangerous culprits first.

1. Red meat from animals reared in confined animal feeding operations (CAFO's) is a MAJOR contributor to cancer. These animals are given antibiotics, growth hormones and other veterinary drugs that get stored in their tissues. Additionally, cooking the meat over high heat creates heterocyclic amines, which further add to its carcinogenic effect.

2. Sugar. It is a universal mechanism for chronic disease. It kicks up inflammation. It kicks up oxygen free radicals. Those are the two main processes we see that underlie any single chronic disorder, including cancers. It fuels the growth of breast cancers, because glucose is cancer's favorite food. The more you consume, the faster it grows."

3. Fats. It's important to remember that every cell membrane is made out of fat, as is your brain.Bad-fats in the diet are a major contributor to ill health and cancer. On the list of fats to eliminate are:
  • Animal fats from CAFO-raised animals
  • Trans fats
  • Partially hydrogenated or hydrogenated fats

Healthy fats of particular importance for cancer prevention are omega-3 and omega-9. Omega-3 in particular serve to effectively slow down tumor growth in estrogen-sensitive cancers such as breast-, prostate- and colon cancers.

4. Xenoestrogens (chemicals that mimic estrogen). This can become a rather long list once you start including any food contaminated with such estrogen-mimicking chemicals, such as BPA, found in the linings of canned goods and in plastics. The list gets truly unwieldy when you include personal care products that contain such chemicals as well…


Eating for Cancer Prevention


Research clearly shows that the one food that is the most important for optimal health is plant foods.

"Plants are packed full of nutrients, vitamins, and minerals that are crucial for our health. They also have hundreds of phytochemicals in them. These don't have any nutritional or caloric value, but they are like natural medicines, and some of them behave exactly like chemotherapy," she says.

"Every plant has some anti-cancer properties to them. There are some that are standouts. Cruciferous vegetables are something that I really recommend. They're a family of vegetables that include broccoli, cauliflower, kale, collards, and Brussels sprouts…

All of them have several different chemicals in common. They've got indole-3-carbinol, Calcium D-glucarate, and sulforaphane. They have big anti-cancer properties to them, and they inhibit the growth of breast, prostate, colon cancer and a variety of other ones. Of all the families of vegetables to consume, [cruciferous vegetables] are the ones to be aware of, so you can make sure you're including that in your diet frequently."


Other Lifestyle Factors that Influence Your Cancer Risk

Other lifestyle factors that have been found to have an impact on chronic disease and cancer include:

  • Vitamin D—There's overwhelming evidence pointing to the fact that vitamin D deficiency plays a crucial role in cancer development. As mentioned earlier, you can decrease your risk of cancer by MORE THAN HALF simply by optimizing your vitamin D levels with sun exposure. And if you are being treated for cancer it is likely that higher blood levels—probably around 80-90 ng/ml—would be beneficial. The health benefits of optimizing your levels, either by safe sun exposure (ideally), a safe tanning bed, or oral supplementation as a last resort, simply cannot be overstated. In terms of protecting against cancer, vitamin D has been found to offer protection in a number of ways, including:

    • Regulating genetic expression
    • Increasing the self-destruction of mutated cells (which, if allowed to replicate, could lead to cancer)
    • Reducing the spread and reproduction of cancer cells
    • Causing cells to become differentiated (cancer cells often lack differentiation)
    • Reducing the growth of new blood vessels from pre-existing ones, which is a step in the transition of dormant tumors turning cancerous
  • Getting proper sleep: both in terms of getting enough sleep, and sleeping between certain hours. According to Ayurvedic medicine, the ideal hours for sleep are between 10 pm and 6 am. Modern research has confirmed the value of this recommendation as certain hormonal fluctuations occur throughout the day and night, and if you engage in the appropriate activities during those times, you're 'riding the wave' so to speak, and are able to get the optimal levels. Working against your biology by staying awake when you should ideally be sleeping or vice versa, interferes with these hormonal fluctuations.

    "If we, for instance, go to bed by 10, we have higher levels of our sleep hormone melatonin; there's a spike that occurs between midnight and 1am, which you don't want to miss because the consequences are absolutely spectacular. Melatonin is not only our sleep hormone, but it also is a very powerful antioxidant. It decreases the amount of estrogen our body produces. It also boosts your immune system… And it interacts with the other hormones.

    So, if you go to bed after 10… it significantly increases your risk of breast cancer."
  • Effectively addressing your stress: The research shows that if you experience a traumatic or highly stressful event, such as a death in the family, your risk of breast cancer is 12 times higher in the ensuing five years.
  • Exercise—If you are like most people, when you think of reducing your risk of cancer, exercise doesn't immediately come to mind. However, there is some fairly compelling evidence that exercise can slash your risk of cancer.

    One of the primary ways exercise lowers your risk for cancer is by reducing elevated insulin levels, which creates a low sugar environment that discourages the growth and spread of cancer cells. Additionally, exercise improves the circulation of immune cells in your blood. Your immune system is your first line of defense against everything from minor illnesses like a cold right up to devastating, life-threatening diseases like cancer.

    The trick about exercise, though, is understanding how to use it as a precise tool. This ensures you are getting enough to achieve the benefit, not too much to cause injury, and the right variety to balance your entire physical structure and maintain strength and flexibility, and aerobic and anaerobic fitness levels. This is why it is helpful to view exercise like a drug that needs to be carefully prescribed to achieve its maximum benefit. For detailed instructions, please see this previous article.

    Additionally it is likely that integrating exercise with intermittent fasting will greatly catalyze the potential of exercise to reduce your risk of cancer and stimulate widespread healing and rejuvenation.

Siapakah Ulul Albab?..

Salam...Selamat Menyambut 2012 dari Blog Rawatan Holistik.

Semoga anda lebih sukses dalam semua lapangan (spiritual, mental, fizikal) tahun 2012 ni dan tahun-tahun mendatang...

Posting pertama 2012 ni, saya nak berkongsi sedikit tentang cerita ulul albab, iaitu satu golongan yang khusus disebut dalam al-Quran. Moga-moga kita dapat mencontohi ciri-ciri dan spesifikasi mereka, untuk motivasi diri kita...

___________________________________________________________________

ULUL ALBAB




Seakan ianya satu golongan yang istimewa di sisi Allah kerana istilah ulul albab disebut sebanyak 16 kali dalam al-Quran.

Siapakah golongan ni?..apakah ciri-ciri yang terdapat pada ulul albab.?..
Apakah relevannya utk survival umat Islam mutakhir ni?..

Menurut Prof . Dr. M. Qurash Shihab (1993) seorang ahli tafsir di Indonesia menjelaskan bahwa kata Albab adalah bentuk jamak dari kata lubb yang bererti saripati sesuatu.

Kacang misalnya, memiliki kulit yang menutupi isinya, maka isi kacang itulah yang disebut dengan lubb.




Dengan demikian, Ulul Albab adalah orang-orang yang memiliki akal yang murni, yang tidak diselubungi oleh kulit atau keserabutan idea yang dapat melahirkan kekalutan dalam berfikir

ArrowUlul Albab orangnya berfikiran jernih dan berhati murni...

Ciri-Ciri Ulul Albab

#1. Bersungguh-sungguh menggali ilmu pengetahuan

--Menyelidik dan mengamati rahsia wahyu (al-Quran mahupun tanda2 kebesaran Allah dalam alam) kemudian menerapkannya dalam masyarakat utk kebaikan bersama.




"Sesungguhnya, dalam penciptaan langit dan bumi, dan silih bergantinya malam dan siang terdapat tanda-tanda kekuasaan Allah bagi ulul albab" (QS,Ali Imran, 190)

Berzikir vs Berfikir

Menurut Ibn Katsir, selain mampu memahami fenomena alam dgn segenap hukumnya, ulul albab juga seorang yang berzikir dan berfikir, yang melahirkan kekuatan intelektual, kekayaan spiritual dan keluhuran moral dalam dirinya..

Tafakur vs Tasyakur



Menurut Ibn Salam, dalam al-Quran terdapat 2 perintah-tafakur & tasyakur.

Tafakur adalah merenungkan serta memikirkan semua kejadian yang timbul dalam alam semesta, kemudian menangkap hukum-hukumnya yang dalam bahasa moden dikenal dengan istilah science

Sedang tasyakur adalah memanfaatkan segala nikmat dan kurnia Allah dengan akal fikiran, sehingga nikmat tersebut semakin bertambah yang kemudian dikenal dengan istilah teknologi.

ArrowUlul Albab menggabungkan keduanya; memikirkan sekaligus mengembangkan dan memanfaatkan hasilnya, sehingga nikmat Allah semakin bertambah .

"Sesungguhnya, jika kamu bersyukur, pasti kami akan menambah (nikmat) kepadamu. Jika kamu mengingkari (nikmat-Ku), maka sesungguhnya azab-Ku sangat pedih"(QS, Ibrahim:7)


“Pada hari ini saintis yang bertakwa kepada Allah dikategorikan sebagai ulul albab”
-Dr Danial Zainal Abidin

Mari kita sorot kembali sambungan dari ayat ke 90 Surah ali-'Imran..

“Sesungguhnya dalam penciptaan langit dan bumi dan silih bergantinya malam dan siang terdapat tanda-tanda bagi ulul albab. Iaitu orang-orang yangmengingati Allah sambil berdiri ataupun duduk ataupun baring dan mereka banyak berfikir mengenai penciptaan langit dan bumi kemudian berkata ‘Wahai Tuhan kami, Engkau tidak menciptakan ini dengan sia-sia, maha suci Engkau, maka peliharalah kami dari siksa api neraka. (Surah ali-’Imran:190-191)

Perhatikan..segala kekuasaan Allah yang menciptakan segala makhluk serta fenomena dan hukum alam hanya boleh dilihat oleh ulul albab iaitu golongan yang fikiran & jiwanya suci murni..

Kenapakah golongan ini fikiran & jiwanya suci murni?...


Jawapannya terdapat dalam ayat berikutnya..

Iaitu orang-orang yang mengingati Allah sambil berdiri ataupun duduk ataupun baring

Ciri-Ciri Ulul Albab..

.............................................................................................

#2. Selalu Berpegang kepada KEBAIKAN DAN KEADILAN

Ulul Albab mampu memisahkan yang baik dan jahat, untuk kemudiannya memilih yang baik..tambahan pula mereka rela mempertahankan kebaikan tersebut, walaupun bersendirian...dan walaupun segala anasir jahat cuba menghalangi...

Arrow Kebenaran itu selalunya pahit untuk ditelan

Katakanlah, "Tidak sama yang buruk dengan yang baik, walaupun banyaknya yang buruk itu menarik hatimu. Oleh itu bertaqwalah kepada Allah wahai ulul albab, supaya kamu berjaya. (Al-Maaidah 5:100)


Arrow Ulul albab menggantungkan harapannya HANYA kepada Allah s.w.t walau diuji dengan keburukan dan kepayahan.



-Gambar sekadar hiasan-


Ulul Albab bukan hanya terperosok di surau-surau suluk, di masjid atau di kerusi empuk menara gading, tetapi mereka terjun ke lapangan masyarakat, merasai denyut nadi kesusahan mereka, bertabligh utk membetulkan kepincangan masyarakat dan memprotes bila terjadi ketidakadilan dan penindasan yg sewenang-wenangnya...

#3.Teliti dan kritis dalam menerima maklumat, teori,cadangan ataupun dalil yang dikemukakan orang lain


Arrow Bagaikan seorang mujtahid, ulul albab tidak taqlid pada individu atau orang lain,sehingga ia tidak mudah menelan bulat-bulat apa yang diberikan orang lain, atau mudah mempercayainya sebelum terlebih dahulu memeriksa kebenarannya.

"Yang berusaha mendengar perkataan-perkataan yang sampai kepadanya lalu mereka memilih dan menurut akan yang sebaik-baiknya (pada segi hukum agama); mereka itulah orang-orang yang diberi hidayah petunjuk oleh Allah dan mereka itulah ulul albab" (Az-Zumar 39:18 )


#4. Sanggup mengambil pelajaran dari sejarah umat terdahulu.

Arrow Dengan memahami sejarah kemudian membandingkannya dgn kehidupan kini, kita dapat bersedia menyambut cabaran-cabaran masa hadapan..


"Demi sesungguhnya, kisah Nabi-nabi itu mengandungi pelajaran yang mendatangkan iktibar bagi ulul albab. (Kisah Nabi-nabi yang terkandung dalam Al-Quran) bukanlah ia cerita-cerita yang diada-adakan, tetapi ia mengesahkan apa yang tersebut di dalam Kitab-kitab agama yang terdahulu daripadanya, dan ia sebagai keterangan yang menjelaskan tiap-tiap sesuatu, serta menjadi hidayah petunjuk dan rahmat bagi kaum yang (mahu) beriman." (Yusuf 12:111)


..lagi sambungan Ciri-Ciri Ulul Albab




#5. Rajin Bangun Malam Untuk Sujud & Rukuk di hadapan Allah s.w.t

Arrow Inilah ciri ulul albab yang begitu spesifik, istimewa dan berbeza dari intelektual Islam lain..

"(Engkaukah yang lebih baik) atau orang yang taat mengerjakan ibadat pada waktu malam dengan sujud dan berdiri sambil takutkan (azab) hari akhirat serta mengharapkan rahmat Tuhannya? "Katakanlah lagi (kepadanya): "Adakah sama orang-orang yang mengetahui dengan orang-orang yang tidak mengetahui?" Sesungguhnya orang-orang yang dapat mengambil pelajaran dan peringatanhanyalah ulul albab. (Az-Zumar 39:9)


#6. Tidak takut kepada siapa pun kecuali kepada Allah

Arrow Berkali-kali Al-Quran menyebutkan bahwa ulul-albab hanya takut kepada Allah

“Berbekallah, dan sesungguhnya sebaik-baiknya bekal adalah takwa dan bertakwalah kepada-Ku hai ulul-albab.” (QS 2:197)

“Allah menyediakan bagi mereka azab yang keras, maka bertakwalah kepada Allah hai ulul-albab.” (QS. 65:10)



Kesimpulan

Ulul Albab adalah golongan istimewa manusia menurut ciri-ciri yang telah digariskan seperti di atas dalam al-Quranul kareem. mereka adalah para muqarabeen (dekat kepada Allah), para auliya' dan insan kamil....

Jadi...jikapun kita tak termasuk dalam golongan tersebut, setidak-tidaknya kita mencontohi/meneladani ciri2 golongan tersebut.

Mudah-mudahan kita tergolong dalam golongan yang diredhai Allah dunia akhirat.Insya-Allah...
