Cancer Prevention Blood Type Diet

by Jason Mallia ND - Integrative Naturopath

So what can we do to specifically fight cancer?

Blood Type Diet can be used in the following ways:

It can be preventative and immune enhancing care due to a genetic history of cancer or due to blood type susceptibility.
It can be used as integrative  therapy to chemotherapy and for recovery , radiation treatments and Surgery recovery.

An Integrative healthcare approach to cancer, using the best of both worlds by combining conventional methods and the Blood Type protocols is highly recommended.

The main aim in using the ABO diet is to "minimize the immune load" to help the body heal and recover. In cancer the immune system is already under fire cancer and is depressed therefore special modifications need to be made to fight it.

The main modification from the general blood type diet is to emphasize the use of Super Beneficial and Beneficial in the diet. These foods have a medicinal affect in the specified blood types and can be used to enhance the immune system an aid recovery.

Neutral are divided in to two categories neutral foods, use frequently and Neutral foods use infrequently. The reason for these changes to reduce further stress on the body and also increase the healing propensity Neutral foods use infrequently should be avoided or used minimally to reduce the immune load on the body..

Super Beneficial

These foods have specific Medicinal properties that enhance the Body , HIGHLY RECOMMENDED As they are DISEASE FIGHTING

Beneficial

These foods contain components that enhance metabolic , immune and structural healthy of the body

Neutral
Allowed Infrequently

These foods have no direct enhancing effect on the body in fighting cancer; however supply nutrients which are needed for a balanced diet.

Neutral
Allowed frequently

These foods have no effect on the body however when consumed regularly can harm the body and reduce healing propensity

Avoid

These foods are harmful to the body and will prevent healing

LECTINS THAT FIGHT CANCER

Certain Food have the ability to fight cancer in certain blood types.

An important point to remember is that based on our individuality lectins behave differently in our body Lectins are small proteins mainly found in foods that have been well researched, studies have shown that they have an ability to make malignant cells  stick together (agglutinate) rendering them non functional .

Some of the foods which have been studies include soy bean protein which has been shown in low concentration to agglutinate cancer cells and not normal cells. Normal cells have been shown to require soy protein lectins in much higher concentration to have the same effect.
Peanut lectins have been shown to prevent the growth of various forms of breast cancer cells and also facilitate the destruction of the cancer cells themselves
On of  the most intriguing discoveries  is the action of the lectin found in the  Roman Snail ( Helix Pomatia). This lectin has been shown to change the face or unmask the cancerous cells making them more available and susceptible for attack by antibodies of certain blood type.

Please see list below for lectins that fight cancer in specific blood types

Secretor Status how important is it in cancer and the blood type diet?

Secretor status represents about 20 percent of the population It is a variation of your blood type which indicates whether or not your blood type antigens are located in your body secretions. Due to the nature of cancer wee strongly recommend that secretor status testing be also done to further modify diet to meet the patients needs and to maximize the healing potential. People can safely follow the general diet for blood type without any risk however further modification adds that little bit extra  This test can be done by your blood type practitioner or through north American pharmacal.

Supplementation for Each Blood Type
The most important thing to remember in terms of cancer treatment and prevention is to reduce stress levels on the body and the best tool for this is the blood type diet. The correct supplements according to your type can further support the body under times of stress and maximize the potential for recovery.

Treatment and supplementation of course should be an integrative healthcare approach utilizing the very best of mainstream treatment in conjunction with the blood type specific recommendations. The most important thing here is to have your practitioners communicate and have them decide on the best regime for you. Whilst some of the recommendations can be done on your own we strongly recommend you affiliate yourself with a blood type friendly or qualified  practitioner who can asses and advise you  based on your individual level of health.

Integrative Approach to Cancer
Ensure patient is assessed by mainstream and complementary medical-practitioners to ensure you have the best information and treatment from both worlds.
Ask a lot of questions and learn about the disease and type of cancer the person has. Remember healing is growth and the disease will teach the person a lot about themselves.

Relay information back and forth so your practitioners have a clear understanding of what each practitioner has in mind for the cancer patient.

Record information about treatment attempted and results given in order to help the practitioners /carer understand how to modify your treatment.

Recommend the patient learn meditative, visualization or affirming techniques to balance the mental /spiritual element of the person.
Stay positive at all times and affirm positive outcomes.
In order to heal and for all the above recommendations to have maximum effect., It has been my philosophy and observation  that life is a journey and that sickness is life’s way of teaching us to  stop listen and feel.

Often people are doing all the right things including the very best integrative medicine however do not get well. From my experience it is the ones that find sense of themselves and a life purpose that have a greater opportunity to heal.
