We had upgraded our juicer to GreenStar Elite from the old Champion, a more satisfying unit in processing all leafy greens and fruits.
I visited the local store – Fit for life Centre Singapore for the purchase and I had a glimpse on their selling books about Mucusless diet. This centre promotes a detox program with mucusless diet and coffee enema. I am a fan of Gerson Therapy but I had never heard of mucusless diet. I once read about a naturopathic advice to stop taking flour based food like bread, cake & etc for the reason that these foods created mucus. Well, mucus…
Mucus protects our body from infection but it creates problem when it becomes excessive. Mucus is secreted in respiratory, reproductive & digestive system and mucus membrane in lymphatic system. Taking probiotic, grains, fibrous food & anion environment could help in controlling the secretion.
For many natural approach in fighting cancer, I think there must be something in common that kill cancer cell or let it vanishes by itself. I believe that we could use natural way to fight cancer. But the problem is there are different ways and we know that each person has different body reaction. We could not follow blindly. Sometimes, choosing a type of treatment or diet for cancer could be quite frustrating.
Moreover, what actually makes cancers so insidious is that they’re not invaders: They are one of us but mutated. And thus our immunity army does not recognize them as a threat and let it grows. But my questions :-
- Does every healthy people too have cancer cell? But why they do not develop tumor like many cancer patients did?
- If some people get remission via juicing like Gerson Therapy, how they “made” the immunity army work & control cancer cell’s growth?
When I learn about this mucusless diet, I start to think would it be possible for scenario as below?
- Immunity army is outnumbered compared to “no-brake” growth of cancer cell, the process is on going but it really takes time and the killing is slower than the cancer growth. Also immunity army is not efficient in identifying the cancer cell as we might still introduce other toxin into body like bacteria, virus and fungus etc.
- Immunity army actually do not kill cancer, the cancer cell dies by itself.
Some of these scenarios answered the question above.
Healthy people has lesser cancer cell which their immunity army is still capable in eliminating them and Cancer loves mucus or eat mucus, I supposed! No scientific prove as from my knowledge. Ha!
Gerson Therapy, vegan diet or mucusless diet has one thing in common, they reduce greatly the mucus production in our body (mucus is produced by our body through the consuming of sugar, flour based, milk, meat…many more). So juicing and vegan diet actually does not provide extra mucus to cancer cell. This probably the reason that the diet actually starve the cancer cell and once cancer cell tries to consume other stuff like phytonutrient, BOMB!!! Vanished!!
Why I get so interested in this mucus thing? My hubby actually has an ileostomy that direct the stuff he eat out to a bag from small intestine. One day in Mar after TCM herbs and juicing diet, he started to pass out something from “behind” opps. We were terrified and puzzled. After consulted with doctors, it is actually common to pass out the mucus as his big intestine is still working and producing mucus. He passed out those mucus in dark color with bad smell. We all thought that it was good sign for detoxification. The more juicing /TCM herbs he took, the more mucus he passed. The smell was still intense. Both chinese physician and doctors think that his big intestine is working actively and the mucus should eventually turned to light yellow colour – healthy mucus!
So Coffee enema actually explain better of his condition by passing out those mucus. Those left over mucus accumulated untreated waste over years and thus toxify the body. Raw vegan diet that create lots fibrous output actually promote the passing out of these mucus extensively.
Hahaha, I think cancer has greatly inspired my imagination. But I really enjoy exploring the truth/myth. Well I need to start working on my hubby’s diet and keep monitoring.
PS: While updating the blog, I google. There is a statement about mucus could protect cancer cell for drug & chemo treatment, cancer cell is capable of manipulating the mucus-signaling mechanism!! So mucus is cancer’s safe house!! Oh my!! I need to study more..
