The cancer prevention plan in Five to Thrive shares how pathways are parts of your body that impact your physical health. Various ways that you live impacting your health affect your pathways with key components related to cancer. Five to Thrive explains how dysfunctions in the five pathways can lead to ill health with cancer. But understanding and acting toward optimal functions in the pathways supports optimal wellness to reduce cancer risk.
What are key points for each of the five pathways addressed in a cancer prevention plan to help illustrate the power that is within each person? Dr. Alschuler and Karolyn Gazella give these answers.
1. The human body contains trillions of specialized immune system cells that search for, identify, and destroy damaged cells, including cancer cells.
2. Prolonged inflammation creates tissue chaos, ultimately resulting in an environment that favors cancer development. The good news is that we can quench the inflammatory fires and heal the damage caused by chronic inflammation.
3. Hormones are powerful messengers that often serve as growth signals for cells, which makes hormonal balance paramount to controlled growth and cancer prevention.
4. Cells are studded with insulin receptors and will use insulin to stimulate their proliferation, making insulin resistance a dangerous state that can, in fact, be reversed through diet and lifestyle.
5. Our digestive/detoxification pathway provides us with critical nutrients and helps us to rid our system of toxic, cancer-causing substances.
