2) GENTLE EXERCISE – QI GONG
Chronic disease treatments are exhausting. Chemotherapy and Radiation, for example, not only weaken the immune system but weaken the whole body. The so-called “cancer fatigue” results from the side effects of treatment and the disease itself.
Many doctors now encourage people with chronic diseases to be as active as possible during treatment and recovery. Being active can reduce stress or anxiety, improve your mood and self-esteem, boost your energy, stimulate your appetite, help you sleep and help you regain your strength during recovery. Gentle exercise, like Qi Gong, can also help you reduce side effects like nausea, fatigue and constipation.
Postural exercises, focused breathing and a series of slow, gentle movements help activate your circulation and promote the flow of energy or QI to ailing areas of the body.
Qi Gong invigorates without straining or exhausting the body, so its ideal for people in recovery from serious illness.
Besides helping you re-mobilize safely after surgery, Qi Gong aids concentration and the spontaneous sense of being in the present that adults often lose through everyday stresses never mind a brush with a chronic disease.
A testimonial that I found on a Chinese Cancer Hospital website said: “Qi Gong to me was sent by God. It has given me a way to live life more fully and happier. I healed very quickly and have been cancer free for four years now. Once you have had an experience with Qi Gong you want to keep it a part of your life.”
HEALTHY NUTRITIONAL SUPPORT
ALOE VERA – BOOSTS THE IMMUNE SYSTEM, IMPROVES DIGESTION
VitAloe is a powerful blend of research-backed ingredients designed to support your immune system like no other product on the market. VitAloe combines plants and plant extracts that have traditionally been consumed for their immune enhancing properties in addition to nutrients that support the growth of healthy bacteria in the digestive tract.
Dr. Lawrence G. Plaskett, of the Royal Society of Chemistry among many other academic distinctions, states “When radiation and chemotherapy are necessary, Aloe vera helps to minimize the damage done to the body by these treatments, which destroy healthy cells – particularly immune system cells – crucial to the body’s recovery. The use of Aloe vera enables the body to heal itself from cancer and the damage done to it by conventional treatment: the immune system is boosted, tumors shrink, metastases are reduced so the cancer does not spread, and new healthy cells begin to grow.”
NEUROBRIGHT – IMPROVES BRAIN FUNCTION AND RELIEVES FATIGUE
NeuroBright supports functional activity of the central nervous system. This collection of herbal ingredients reinforced by Microhydrin and Lecithin helps protect brain cells from free radical damage, boosts brain function, improves memory, and helps relieve fatigue and emotional stress. It protects brain cells from oxidative damage and inhibits the development of atherosclerosis.
“Following a cancer diagnosis, many survivors experience a sense of cognitive loss – the feeling that one’s mental abilities are slower and less acute than before – as if the brain is in a fog. Problems with memory and concentration are the most common cognitive complaints, and some people report difficulties following directions, finding the right words, or performing simple calculations. Complex tasks, like planning or organizing activities, can be especially challenging for survivors with cognitive symptoms, and multitasking may seem impossible.” can be read on cancer support websites.
Some NeuroBright ingredients that enhance the brain function:
Rhodiolarosea – This remarkable herb has been shown to enhance physical and mental performance and reduce fatigue. Rhodiola is considered an adaptogenic herb, which means it helps the body handle stress, both
mental and emotional.
Bacopa – One of the most well-known herbs for enhancing mental focus is bacopa. It has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years to enhance learning, memory and concentration.
Ginkgo Biloba – A popular plant known as the memory tree. Studies show that Ginkgo supports mental clarity and normal memory function. It provides antioxidant protection and supports healthy circulation.
Coenzyme Q-10 – This powerful antioxidant is used by every cell of our bodies to produce energy. Brain levels of Co Q-10 begin to decline at age 20 and low levels tend to be associated with cognitive decline. Supplementation can bring Co Q-10 in the brain back to healthy levels.
SPIRULINA – DAILY DETOXIFIER, CLEANSER AND NOURISHER
Spirulina is the perfect food to restore our health and the health of our planet. It is a unique blue-green algae and it contains an incredible array of nutrients , protein-rich and nutrient-dense deeming it “Nature’s Miracle Food.” Spirulina is an excellent source of numerous phytonutrients which act as powerful antioxidants. It is abundant in chlorophyll, which cleanses the body of the toxins and heavy metals we are exposed to every day.
It is 70% protein and contains all the essential amino acids, making it a unique vegetarian source of complete protein. Better yet, its protein is 95% digestible compared to meat sources which are estimated to be only 20% digestible. Spirulina is the perfect source of high quality protein that’s easy on the body. It also contains enzymes, which naturally assist in the digestion process. Spirulina is one of the highest natural food sources for beta-carotene, which is essential for a strong immune system. It is also an excellent source of B vitamins. This nutritious food contains vitamin E, a highly bioavailable source of iron, and 14 naturally chelated minerals and trace elements.
Spirulina is a rich source of GLA (gamma linolenic acid), which is a precursor for the body’s prostaglandins, the master hormones necessary for many essential body functions. GLA is important for growth, development
and proper immune function. Next to mother’s milk, Spirulina is the highest whole-food source of this important compound. Spirulina has high natural iodine, which protects NOT ONLY your thyroid, but all glandular tissues in your body.
Spirulina has a number of blood-strengthening properties, as found by a 2001 study from China, concluding that spirulina has chemo-protective and radio-protective capabilities and shows high potential for fighting cancer. Immune cells in your blood are highly radio-sensitive and considered to be good indicators for biological effects taking place at the molecular level.
Doctors state that “Spirulina helps to protect your kidneys, which are some of the first organs to suffer damage after significant radiation exposure.” Research suggests “Spirulina helps protect from the nephrotoxicity of cancer treatments, antibiotics and analgesics and therefore is recommended for chemotherapy patients as it helps healing the body while supplying it with plenty of oxygen and energy.”
