A Balanced Lifestyle is the Anti-Cancer Way

written by Head Health Nutter January 12, 2009

If I haven’t sold you already with the title, would it help to know that regaining balance not only helps prevent disease, it also reverses the hands of time? Leading a balanced life boils down to knowing what your body, mind and soul need to function effectively.  It means cleaning our Earthly temples of the junk we’ve accumulated since birth, and then keeping it as clean as we can.

This MSN.ca lifestyle article, “Living the Anticaner Way” highlights some of the healthy lifestyle habits Dr. David Servan-Schreiber, author of Anticancer, suggests everyone (on some degree) should take up for cancer prevention. It was a helpful list with categories, giving me a better idea of what life areas I need to pay more attention to (and some tips in how I can start).

Here are a few of the healthy lifestyle suggestions listed that have been also covered (a little differently) here on Live Lighter:

“Protect Yourself

  • Avoid pesticides and insecticides
  • Avoid parabens and phthalates in cosmetic products
  • Avoid skin-care products that contain estrogens or placental by-products”

“Improve your diet

  • Reduce your intake of sugar, white flour, products containing omega-6s (sunflower oil, soybean oil, safflower oil, margarines, hydrogenated fats, nonorganic animal fats)
  • Increase your intake of anticancer products (turmeric, green tea, soy, fruits, vegetables)
