Nature’s bounty provides a wide variety of God given weapons that can be used in the prevention and treatment of cancer. It sometimes seems that many of the secrets of God’s garden have been lost to us throughout the centuries, and we are only recently rediscovering what the earth itself can offer us in our quest for total health. Spirulina is only the latest in a long line of rediscoveries, and it is proving to be a powerful tool in the natural prevention and treatment of a vast array of different types of cancers. Spirulina has been used in the East for centuries as a medicinal supplement, but it is only recently that Western science has taken a closer look at the health benefits of this naturally occurring algae. The latest research is yielding remarkable results, and Spirulina is proving to be one of the most powerful weapons in the natural treatment and prevention of cancer.
What Is Spirulina?
Spirulina is a naturally occurring blue-green algae that grows in high alkaline warm water lakes. Its blue-green color is the result of phycocyanin, a protein that has been shown to inhibit the growth and proliferation of cancer cells. Spirulina, like most plants and algae, also contains high levels of chlorophyll. Recent studies have shown that chlorophyll binds with cancer cells, allowing them to be more easily excreted from the body. Thereby eliminating cancerous cells before they can group into colonies and develop into tumors or spread into other parts of the body. Spirulina is also a rich source of vitamin B12 and beta carotene, as well as other minerals and fatty acids which aid in the fight against cancer.
Spirulina and the Immune System
Many people mistakenly believe that cancer is, in and of itself, an aberration. The truth is that cancer cells develop, and exist, in all healthy bodies. The immune system, when it is operating at peak levels, isolates most cancer cells and either destroys them or redirects them to be excreted as waste. When a person is diagnosed with “cancer”, it means that their immune system has not effectively killed off the naturally occurring cancer cells, and they have been able to multiply and bloom into a systematic cancer. The vitamins and minerals in Spirulina help to boost the immune system, allowing it to more effectively deal with cancer cells as they appear in the body, thus reducing their chances of multiplying and developing into a systematic cancer.
Further Benefits of Spirulina
In addition to fighting cancer, Spirulina has a number of other positive health benefits, including;
- Fighting fungal and yeast infections, including Candida Albicans and Aspergillus Fumigatus.
- Strengthening the respiratory system, and relieving the symptoms of many chronic breathing disorders including asthma, bronchitis and allergies.
- Helping to regulate blood sugar, particularly in people with type-2 diabetes.
- Strengthening bones and teeth. Spirulina is rich in calcium and can help people maintain strong bones and teeth while avoiding milk and dairy products.
Sources of Spirulina
For centuries, Spirulina was primarily found in parts of Asia, Africa, and Mexico. It grows naturally in tropical seas and large fresh water lakes. Recently, Spirulina “farms” have been created around the world, most notably in Hawaii. Due to contamination issues in parts of Asia and Africa, “farmed” Spirulina is recommended over most naturally occurring sources. It is important to always look for organically grown and processed Spirulina. Some manufacturers have been known to use potentially harmful additives, including heavy metals, in the processing of Spirulina, and these can often carry unwanted side effects. Spirulina should be taken as a daily supplement, usually 1 to 2 tablespoons in a glass of water.
God has a way of providing everything we need to maintain our total health. The food He provides is overflowing with the resources we need to restore our bodies to optimal health, and to protect them from damage and disease, all we need do is learn to partake of them.
