EXCESS ACID BUILD-UP IN YOUR BODY CAN LEAD TO CANCER
Cancer thrives in an acidic environment, and doesn't survive in an oxygen rich and more alkaline environment. Too much acidity (acidose) is an underlying factor in overweight and many degenerative diseases such as diabetes, arthritis, fibromyalgia, Alzheimer, heart disease, MS and etc. Taking action to make your body more alkaline is vital in the battle against cancer and many other chronic diseases, which require a shift to a healthier life style. The first step to be taken is to lower the acidity of the body so that it can dispose of acidic wastes in the blood and cellular fluids safely and easily. The second step is to physically pull out old stored wastes into the blood stream so that they can be discharged from the body. The following Natur-Med applications and activites aim at achieving these 2 steps.
Natur-Med Cancer Prevention Program
Cleansing the body from inside out regularly is the key to clean the excess acid in your body for health and for a younger look, as well as for cancer prevention. The lymph system, which is the sewage system for metabolic toxins, should be detoxed regularly to achieve this. There is more lymph in our bodies than blood, but there is no pump for lymph. That’s why we need to provide a pumping system for the lymph to flow.
Natur-Med Life Change Program is based on the following:
- A daily rejuvenation program, based on a biorhythmic life style.
- Water (hydrotherapy with very special therapeutic hot spring mineral waters rarely found on earth)
- Healthy nutrition (vegetarian cuisine & detox diet)
- Complementary natural treatments
- A natural and healthy environment, away from industry and big city pollution
The following actions you can take in Natur-Med to cleanse your body of excess acid, developed over time due to unhealthy living habits, are vital in the battle against cancer:
Anyone who has a sedentary lifestyle is stuck with a compromised immune system from lymph that needs to be drained.
Brisk walking, which should be done outdoors in a natural setting -like the regular daily forest walks in Natur-Med rejuvenation program- is helpful if done regularly. Yoga, pilates, rebounding, water gym are other exercise options that provide lymph detox and the cleansing of excess acid build up in Natur-Med program also.
Natur-Med detox diet provides the alkaline nutrition you need for a better functioning lymph system. These rules are followed in Natur-Med for a lymph system functioning properly:
We limit animal products.
We make raw vegetables and fresh vegetable juices part of your daily diet.
We avoid processed foods that are high in salt, sugar and preservatives.
We replace simple sugars and carbohydrates with whole grains and complex carbohydrates.
Combined with other Natur-Med treatments, Ozone Therapy helps the liver essentially with detoxification. It enforces decomposition of fats (cholesterol and triglycerides). These fats are known to be an important damaging factor for the blood vessels (heart attack, stroke). It considerably improves the metabolism of the cells, the motor of energy reduction in the body. It increases the amount of oxygen available to the tissue and thus leads to a better absorption. It kils many kinds of bacteria, viruses and fungi, and prevents their re-appearance.
Regular massage is a great way to keep your entire body healthy and your lymph system running smoothly. Lymph drainage, a massage technique focusing on providing proper lymph flow and detoxification, in addition to pressotherapy, pneumatic pulsation therapy which are also lymph drainage methods are available in Natur-Med.
PPT (Pneumatic Pulsation Therapy) is good for local acidosis.
Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD), offered in Natur-Med, has a powerful cleansing, relaxing, pain relieving and immunological effects. It facilitates the removal of excess water, metabolic wastes, toxins, bacteria and foreign substances from he body, thereby has positive effects on skin health also.
Hamam (Turkish bath):
Steam raises body temperature above normal and stimulates the immune system to increase production of antibodies and interferon. The benefits of hamam use and special scrubbing & soap massage include pain relief, muscle relaxation, and respiratory benefits. The hamam efficiently releases toxins from the body and provides a powerful combination with massage.
Turkish Bath (Hamam) is an important part of Natur-Med rejuvenation and cleansing program. It is a variant of the Roman bath, steam bath, sauna or Russian bath distinguished by a focus on water, as distinct from ambient steam. Soap massage, scrubbing and washing in hamam provides deep cleansing, detoxification and relaxation and has great benefits for skin health.
The lymph system doesn’t have a heart –a pumping system-to keep it flowing. It’s dependent on contraction of the muscles and breathing. Take a few minutes each day to practice diaphragm breathing deeply, as we practice in Natur-Med every morning.
Hot & Cold Contrast Baths
Contrast baths have been used for therapy for over 2,000 years. Alternating warm and cool water baths increases blood and lymph circulation.The lymph vessels contract when exposed to cold, and relax in response to heat. Alternating hot and cold, lymph vessels dilate and contract to essentially "pump" and move stagnant fluid out of the area. This provides detoxification.
Natur-Med outdoor hot spring and regular cold water pools, consutructed side by side, provide you this excellent lymph detox opportunity amidst pine trees, with a wonderful sea view.
Saunas and steam bath
Let your body sweat out toxins in saunas and steam baths to cleanse your lymph system. They increase circulation and burn calories. Sweating in saunas and steam baths cleanses your skin thoroughly, makes the skin soft and healthy, among many other body & mind relaxing and treating benefits.
Colon Hydrotherapy is the quickest and most effective way of removing toxic matter and mucoid plaque from the bowel. Colonics are a safe, painless, hygienic and very relaxing way of cleansing the entire bowel. As the colon is cleansed, the other internal organs have a clearer path for ridding the body of accumulated toxins.
