Curing Yourself with Food

Healthy Fruits For Healthy Living Pt 2

Part Two

When looking for food cures one of the first foods you should turn to are fruits. There are many, many fruits that fit the bill so here we look at a small sampling of them.

The fuzzy brown exterior of the kiwi fruit gives way to a bright green interior which is an excellent cancer fighter because it contains a great deal of vitamin C and fiber. Vitamin C found in kiwis and a variety of other fruits, is believed to play an integral role in preventing cataracts.

Grapes are good for people as they are a tremendous source of boron, which is a type of mineral that is connected to a lower risk of osteoporosis. Grapes when turned into red grape juice are full of not just boron but also something known as reservatrol. Reservatrol is a chemical that is believed to be able to ward off heart disease by inhibiting the clumping action of blood cells.

Mangoes are full of vitamin C, and beta-carotene both of which are considered to be anticancer antioxidants. This fruit is also full of copper and vitamin B6. The USDA research into the importance of vitamin C to the body has found that this essential vitamin is beneficial at lowering blood pressure.

Oranges and oranges made into orange juice are filled with vitamin C and folic acid. Folic acid is beneficial for preventing a number of birth defects such as spina bifida and encephalitis and is believed to help reduce the risk of cervical cancer.

There are other types of citrus fruits besides orange juice that are chocked full of limonoids which are substances that can help the body to detoxify itself and by so doing can decrease the risk of cancer. Be aware that smokers need twice the daily intake of vitamin C as that of non-smokers and should therefore drink double the quantity of orange juice as compared to individual who do not have a nicotine habit.

Quick Reflexology Fact

I prefer this method not reflexology atlas only because it is free, but also because it is extremely convenient. If you want to dig in and learn the basics, there are many online reflexology courses you can take. Moreover, many adult education programs offer weekend reflexology programs. Check with your local school district to find a class near you.

Pears are not only delicious but they are also an excellent source of fiber. Fiber has a great deal of benefits but when combined with a diet low in fat it is able to decrease the chance that a person will develop polyps in the colon or colon area which in turn can lead to the development of cancer. Pears are not just full of fiber but also they contain plenty of vitamin C, boron (which is also prevalent in grapes), and potassium (which is also prevalent in bananas).  

Prunes are the recommended fruit for relief of constipation, however some people prefer to drink prune juice instead. Prunes are good for this purpose due to the fact that they are chocked full of fiber and they have a natural sugar called sorbitol in them. Prunes are excellent for the bones and like grapes contain boron as well as plenty of vitamins A and E.


Avoid buying cartons of juice. Most juices are full of sugar or sweeteners, even if they say they are sugar free.

Fresh fruit is a better choice for adults who need to lose weight. Apples are perfect for a mid afternoon snack.

Berries in general contain plenty of fiber and strawberries are a perfect example of this. Strawberries have more fiber as well as more vitamin C in them then the majority of other fruits including oranges. Strawberries contain a substance called ellagic acid, which is a natural chemical that is excellent at fighting cancer.

Studies looking at ellagic acid have discovered that it very potent as an inhibitor of many dangerous carcinogens that the body takes in such as nitrosamines and tobacco smoke.
