Last month we spoke about inflammation. This month, we’re going to talk about stage 5 -Ulceration. According to the National Cancer Institute, an ulcer is the:
“formation of a break on the skin or on the surface of an organ. An ulcer forms when the surface cells die and are cast off. Ulcers may be associated with cancer and other diseases.”
So basically, in this stage, some of your tissues and cells are now being or have been destroyed. Common areas affected may include your skin, nose and digestive tract. Ulceration can be one of the ways in which the body still tries to get rid of excess toxins (note that if you address this toxicity, the ulceration will heal). For example, an ulcer on your skin may ooze (not so pleasant), but it is a way in which the body tries to literally create another exit point in order to excrete excess toxic buildup. This stage can be very painful and when medication doesn’t help enough, you may end up with surgery to removed the damaged area(s) or section(s) – again it may stop the pain, but you won’t address the cause(s) this way – you need to find the triggers.
Here are some basic examples of ulceration:
- Stomach or peptic ulcer
- Cold sores
- Ulcerative colitis
Now here’s 5 basic tips on what you can do to protect against ulceration:
- Unplug the drain. By this we mean start getting the toxins out by getting your colon moving properly 2-3 times daily!
- Take out the garbage. Support your organs and tissues with activating, building and cleansing herbs in order to remove the toxins buried deep in your cells!
- Take in the good. It’s pointless taking out the garbage if you keep putting it in. Remember you are literally what you eat, drink absorb and inhale.
- Avoid the top 4 – wheat, dairy, corn (all forms- sugar, syrup), soy
- Take in more vegetables and greens in whatever form you can handle – whole, powdered, capsule or in smoothies – ask us for a few good recommendations.
Besides those just mentioned, you also need to do these 5 things (these are very helpful for the upcoming flu and cold season, too):
- Stay away from all sugars(especially the sugar free variety) – just 1 teaspoon shuts off your immune system for up to 6 hours
- Get your Vitamin D3 – 1000 IU may not be enough for you; we have a great sublingual or spray you can use.
- Rest..by this we mean sleep before 11pm!
- Address your stress – ask us how we can help with that
- Take lots of real garlic, Vitamin C (the real kind), probiotics (not the stuff in yogurt), and oregano oil – very powerful anti virals, anti bacterial anti everything. We have an undiluted oregano oil for you to try. Just not a good idea to take oregano oil when your pregnant.
Did You Know…
- If you drink skim milk, you won’t absorb Vitamins A, D, E and K – why…because they are fat soluble – they need to be consumed with fat in order to be absorbed.
- The synthetic, manufactured form of Vitamin D in the milk you purchase is D2 and is a waste of your time.
- About 50% of ear infections in children disappear if they stop consuming dairy.
