Phytotherapy and detoxification

In order not to further poison our body with chemicals, in some conditions, some doctors recommend phytotherapy. This implies the use of medicinal plants for therapeutic purposes and gives very good results especially in case of an early-stage disease.

Summer is the season where we can make the most of natural products because now more than ever we can found a lot of fruits and vegetables. Phytotherapy uses plants as total extracts, unlike allopathic medicine (traditional medicine), which recommends only substances extracted from plants. Natural treatments are recommended if we want to do a detox. This is ideal in summer.

Detoxification involves removing toxins from the body and is necessary when, although we have a balanced lifestyle, we face undue fatigue, digestive disorders, headaches, drowsiness. There are many detoxification techniques. Almost every firm natural products proposes a particular combination of antioxidants. Doctors say that there is no universal method of detoxification, but it is good to revive the body from time to time.

A detox diet should eliminate oxidising substances resulting from the body's metabolism. Antioxidant substances are fighting to revive the body. There are plants that contain high concentrations of antioxidants, such as aloe vera gel. Three to four tablespoons taken in the morning helps detox.


Natural treatments used in treating cancer

For the chronically ill, it will be needed a detoxification program with longer time and it is advisable to use a combination of different herbal techniques. Detoxification varies from one person to another, depending on the pathology that has according to allopathic medicines (medicines that are used in classical general hospitals) that he take.

Natural treatments can also be used in treating cancer. The first thing you have to do is to use complementary therapy. In addition to environmental stress and cancer can be caused by diseases of organs for which should be used allopathic treatments. To help the body detox, we need natural products. Drug detoxification is not every time doing everything. The side effects of these therapies is so beautiful bust through complementary therapies that oncologists should have an opening to study complementary therapies.

Chemotherapy used in cancer treatment kills cells, and the body should be helped to fight. To help the body we usually can recommend two to three antioxidants, depending on the location of the disease, and some minerals and vitamins.

There are certain vitamins that are not recommended for cancer patients, especially those in Group B - B12 and B9, because they produce a stimulation of DNA and cell proliferation. But they do not have any absolute contraindication. But should be administered in smaller amounts.

Best fruits and vegetables for detoxification

Doctors say that during the summer we have to give up drugs and maintain our health using all the properties of fruits and vegetables. In particular, it is recommended that they be placed in child nutrition. Apples and carrots are required. These should be given to children because the body learns during the life how to digest, to make full use and absorb all that is best in them.

Celery is also extremely important for our body. Equally important is the whole range lemon and citrus fruits that are alkalising the body's internal environment. Specific season fruits are recommended.

You probably do not have enough money to buy and eat 0.5 kg of fruits daily, but we can eat even one fruit a day. It is recommended in two courses per year, the aloe vera plant, because it is a very good detoxifier, but also a very good supplement that nourishes the body.

      This is very valuable in so many ways---for the entire family and anyone going through Chemo Treatments---checking with their doctor first of course.

      I will share with Twitter and pin on my re-pin board.

      I've done a few different types of detox programs throughout my life. After going through chemo eleven years ago, I also believe strongly in supplements. I used medical and alternative methods during my cancer experience. Thanks for the helpful article on detoxification.

      It's good that you've also mention the fact that some vitamins should be avoided in people with cancer. The American Cancer Society advised against the use of vitamins during cancer treatment. Useful article, voted up and interesting.
