As we enter Cancer Prevention Month, join us on a journey to boost your well-being. This blog focuses on how natural health products can support your body and help prevent cancer. Let’s explore why adding these products to your daily routine is a simple yet powerful way to take care of yourself and stay healthy.
Cancer Prevention Month serves as a call to action—a reminder that our health is within our control. By integrating natural health products into our daily routines, we not only nourish our bodies but also affirm our commitment to a proactive, preventive approach to well-being. Let this month be a catalyst for positive change, and may our collective efforts contribute to a world where cancer prevention is a shared priority.
Natural health products, derived from the richness of the earth, offer a holistic approach to wellness. From herbal supplements to antioxidant-rich superfoods, these products provide a treasure trove of nutrients, each playing a unique role in supporting our body’s natural defence mechanisms.
Antioxidants, found abundantly in natural health products, stand out as nature’s warriors in the fight against oxidative stress—a potential contributor to cancer development. Berries, green tea, and certain vitamins act as antioxidants, neutralising free radicals and promoting cellular health.
Herbal supplements, deeply rooted in traditional medicine, have emerged as valuable allies in cancer prevention. Turmeric, revered for its anti-inflammatory properties, and medicinal mushrooms like reishi and maitake are among the natural health products gaining attention for their potential preventive benefits.
Calcium may also act directly to reduce cell proliferation in the lining of the colon or cause proliferating colon cells to undergo differentiation, which, in turn, leads to a reduction in cell proliferation. Calcium also may improve signalling within cells and cause cancer cells to differentiate and/or die.
There is probable evidence that taking calcium supplements of more than 200 mg per day protects against bowel cancer.
Scientists have tested substances in flaxseed on cancer cells – It suggests that these substances may help to stop the growth and spread of cancer cells. Studies of flaxseed in animals have also shown that it may have some effect in stopping cancer from growing and spreading.
Garlic appears to reduce the ability of cancer cells to promote the growth of new blood vessels. Normal cells die at a certain point, and cancer cells are often able to avoid this natural cycle of cell death. Garlic and its components appear to increase the rate of cancer cell death.
Keeping cancer at bay is not just about using certain products; it’s like creating a quilt of healthy habits. Regular exercise, managing stress, and practicing mindfulness, combined with natural health products, form a complete strategy for staying well.
As we navigate Cancer Prevention Month, let’s empower ourselves with knowledge and embrace the potential of natural health products. Consultation with healthcare professionals, informed choices, and a commitment to holistic wellness can collectively shape a future where prevention takes precedence.
