Holistic medicine suggests Qigong exercises for breast cancer survivors - Taichung,Taiwan
Dr. Amir Farid Isahak, an expert in holistic medicine, discusses the benefits of an anti-cancer diet, nutritional supplements and Qigong exercises in fighting ...

THERE have been many articles and reports on breast cancer recently.
With about one in 20 of our women at risk (expected to rise to one in seven in 20-30 years' time), the problem is endemic, and rightly deserves attention.
While there is a need to make treatment more affordable, more emphasis should be made on prevention, screening and early detection.
While it is unfortunate that some women are born with breast cancer genes that put them at higher risk of developing the disease, most of the victims do not carry these genes.
The main anti-cancer strategy (for all cancers) lies in a healthy diet and lifestyle.
The anti-cancer diet is nutrient dense (low calorie but high nutrient content), with plenty of fruits and vegetables (preferably fresh, raw, and organic) providing an abundance of protective nutrients and fibre.
Eat more foods with known anti-cancer nutrients, for example, carrots for beta-carotene, tomatoes and watermelons for lycopene, mushrooms for beta-glucans, and others.

This diet is not only anti-cancer, it will also protect you against most of the chronic diseases like heart disease, stroke and diabetes.
For insurance, I recommend taking supplements because it is difficult to get a healthy, raw-food based diet in our present diet and lifestyle.
Antioxidants protect our cells from damage caused by free radicals.
Our immune cells must be empowered to fight cancer cells when they first appear (for example, when insufficient antioxidants fail to prevent the attacks by free radicals).

For an anti-cancer healthy lifestyle, you must maintain a healthy weight, not smoke, not drink alcohol excessively and you must exercise regularly.
I must stress that it is not enough for cancer patients to be treated by qigong healers.
