Cancer Free: An Essential & Non-Toxic Way to Heal
If you or someone you know has been diagnosed with cancer, it can make you feel like your whole world has turned upside down.

All sorts of emotions may be passing through your mind, causing you to feel overwhelmed with nowhere to turn.

Typically, if you've been diagnosed with cancer, surgery, radiation and chemotherapy are the most utilized treatments. Unfortunately, with all of these treatments, there are many physical and emotional side effects.

Author Bill Henderson lost his wife to ovarian cancer after she battled the disease for many years. But what he finally realized was that it wasn't the cancer itself that killed his wife, but rather the harsh treatments.

With what his wife was going through, Bill began to research natural and alternative ways to heal cancer. He even co-authored a few books; most recently, Cancer-Free: Your Guide to Gentle, Non-toxic Healing, which looks into why people get cancer and offers a non-toxic way to heal your cancer.

What are the first steps for someone who decides to use a natural approach for healing cancer?

The first is getting your stress in control. Stress, whether it is extended or emotional, can be a triggering factor to many diseases and illnesses. Another approach to help heal cancer is becoming aware of what you're putting into your mouth.

You know the risks of smoking and excessive drinking, but overeating unhealthy, processed foods can be another trigger point for illness and disease.

After decades of investigation and research (which is still ongoing), Bill helped create the seven most effective nutrients and regimens for healing cancer naturally, and combined them into a powerful 7-Part Cancer Healing Program:

1. Immune system stimulation: A supplement derived from yeast, (Beta-1,3d Glucan), primes a group of white blood cells, called neutrophil immune cells, to recognize cancer cells and kill them. These white cells make up 50-60 percent of your immune system cells.

2. Bio-oxygenation of cells with cottage cheese and flax seed oil: This mixture, part of the highly successful Budwig Cancer Protocol, naturally heals cancer by restoring the cells' ability to breathe and utilize oxygen.

3. Stop cancer's spread by strengthening cell walls: To stop the cancer's spread to other parts of the body, weakened cell walls must be strengthened.

4. Raise body's alkalinity and enzyme count: Dried green barley, available in pill form, will raise your body's pH and create an environment where cancer cells cannot live. This supplement also provides thousands of enzymes needed for complete digestion and for aiding in the breakdown and elimination of toxic matter within your body.

5. Cancer-fighting diet: Try raw, whole vegetables plus smoothies and juices first, and limited animal protein.

6. Vitamin/Mineral Supplements: Many of the nutrients and antioxidants your body needs to gobble up the free radicals and prevent cancer must come from supplements.

7. Vitamin D3: To heal cancer, research shows you have to elevate your body's vitamin D level and keep it high.
