How to prepare for cancer surgery naturally

Surgery can be daunting but there are definitely things you can do to get through it without major issues and side-effects.

1. Prior to surgery you may be advised to change your diet. You should certainly aim to lose a little excess weight if you have it, and eat healthily. Avoid sugar and bad saturated fat, which both compromises the immune system, avoid alcohol, quit smoking and instead nourish yourself with plenty of fruit, vegetables, nuts and seeds and olive oil and fish oils.

2. Consider doing yoga to encourage core strength and calm your body. In the USA, research from the New York Presbyterian Hospital showed that those patients who meditated before surgery lost 40% less blood than those who did not.

3. Be clear what your surgery entails, how long it lasts, likely side- effects, the medications you will be given and will need afterwards.

4. The antibiotics you will surely have will make a major dent in the volume of your good gut bacteria; you may even lose certain strains forever. With the good bacteria compromised, both yeasts and pathogen levels will rise. These can compromise your immune system, increase toxin levels, cause fatigue, gut issues, mouth ulcers and more.

    a. Two days after the operation start to take a yeast killer such as Oregano oil (300 mg) – as a pill or by rubbing Essential Oil on your wrists. Continue this for 8-12 weeks.

    b. Also take Artemisinin (Sweet Wormwood), 200 mg a day before bed for 10 days. Then have 10 days off, and repeat. In all take artemisinin for 5 rounds of 10 days on, 10 days off.

5. Take a Total Vitamin E – all 4 tocopherols and all 4 tocotrienols – to help you heal quicker. It is also an antibiotic. Take from two weeks before until about 6 weeks after. It works!

6. Take a multi-strain probiotic before and after surgery.

7. Buy some Aloe Vera gel 99.9% pure (or use the real thing if you grow it!). After the would has joined, you can gently rub it on the scars – it acts to kill microbes and it will help you heal better, and reduce scaring.

8. Will you be in pain after the operation and for how long. Consider alternative pain relief rather than taking yet more drugs. Hemp oil with at least 60% CBD content has been approved as pain relief.

9. Remember there are natural compounds that can really help post-operation.

      a. Bioactive compounds like pau d’arco, garlic, ginger root, goldenseal/berberine, cloves, probiotics can attack and kill infections. You don’t have to have more drugs.
      b. Natural compounds like echinacea, cat’s claw, astragalus, essiac will boost the immune system.
      c. Melatonin, ashwagandha, frankincense are natural anti- inflammatory compounds.
      d. Foods such as olive oil, fish oils, berries, apples, carrots, chicory, onions, and red grapes can boost good gut bacteria and in turn boost the immune system.
      e. There is some research showing arnica and bromelain can reduce swelling and bruising. You can take before and after surgery.

In our best-selling book, ‘Everything you need to know to Help you Beat cancer’, we have more suggestions and specifically questions you should be asking your doctors.

10. About 6 weeks afterwards, start eating probiotic foods to replenish lost gut bacteria more quickly – a little unpasteurised cheese, kefir products (UK – Chuckling goat), apple cider vinegar, sauerkraut, kombucha, kempeh.
