So you were diagnosed with cancer. Your oncologist authoritatively declared that your ‘best options’ were chemotherapy, radiation therapy, or surgery. You decided to follow conventional medicine and completed the treatments as recommended because you felt it was the right thing to do. Now that you’re finished with chemotherapy and radiation therapy, what’s next?

First thing first. Take a deep breath. Better yet, take some time off work to appreciate the tremendous journey you’ve been on. Although your journey isn’t over yet, this phase is, which means that right now is an important time to regroup. You’ve already discovered that having cancer is an emotional rollercoaster ride because of the constant doctor appointments, dealing with family members, and your own personal realization of what just happened to you.

One of the most important factors after your cancer diagnosis is to realize the emotional, mental, and spiritual connection to what may have caused an imbalance. Dr. Ryker Geerd Hamer, MD paused to reflect, he discovered the correlation between the traumatic experience of losing his son and his physical ailments.

 

Dr. Hamer’s Story

The Hamers were a normal family with four children (two girls and two boys), until August, 1978, when a devastating event shook their lives. An Italian Prince of the House of Savoy accidentally shot their son Dirk while he was asleep on a boat anchored on the island of Cavallo. Dirk’s battle with death lasted for almost four months, while his father watched over him day and night. Dirk died in his father’s arms on December 7, 1978.

Shortly after Dirk’s death, Dr. Hamer was diagnosed with testicular cancer. He was never seriously ill in his whole life, nor did he have a family history of cancer. He came to the conclusion that the cancer was directly related to the unexpected loss of his son. He later named this conflict the “Dirk Hamer Syndrome”, (DHS), a serious, acute-dramatic and isolating biological conflict shock experience that catches one unexpectedly. Once Dr. Hamer realized the connection with his grief and his cancer, he healed himself and went on to help thousands of others.(1)

 

Fastest Way To Detox From Chemo

After taking time to rebalance yourself emotionally, mentally, and spiritually, it’s time to go onto the next phase of your healing journey, which is to detox your body from the toxic side-effects of the chemotherapy and radiation therapy. Whether you’ve had one treatment or many, or whether it’s been one year or several years, the toxins stay in your body for a very long time.

The fastest way to eliminate the toxins after chemotherapy is to sweat. In a 2011 study, noted in the Archives of Environmental and Contamination Toxicology, (2) “Many toxic elements appeared to be preferentially excreted through sweat. Presumably stored in tissues, some toxic elements readily identified in the perspiration of some participants were not found in their blood serum. Induced sweating appears to be a potential method for eliminating toxic chemicals from the human body”

Those who exercise and sweat for 30 minutes daily are getting their residual toxins from chemo out faster than another detox method available.

If you don’t sweat readily, here are quick tips to get you sweating:

Dry Skin Brush. This simple, cost effective therapy was first used centuries ago when Greek wrestlers dry brushed their body with a loofah sponge before they wrestled. Why did they do this? Because they learned that by opening their skin pores and allowing their skin to breathe at maximum capacity, they had more energy.

The other major benefit of this therapy is that it stimulates the lymphatic system which is made up of small lymph nodes located throughout your body. These are especially clustered around the armpits, chest, groin, and behind the knees. Unlike the circulatory system, which depends on the heart to pump blood throughout the body, the lymph system does not have its own pump. This means that your lymph fluids leak into your lymph system and get pushed along by your body’s muscle motion into your lymph nodes. Basically, the two means of moving lymph are exercise and skin brushing.

When there are too many toxins entering into the body at one time, such as with chemotherapy, the body quickly goes into protective mode. One quick action your body takes is to circulate the toxins away from your organs via the lymph vessels. However, if too many toxins flood the body, the lymph nodes will swell to protect the body from further damage.

Dry brushing your skin, stimulates the lymph system to move toxins along which eventually exit through your elimination channels.

 

How To Start Your Chemo Cleanse

Whenever you start cleansing and detoxing your body from harsh poisons such as chemo, it’s vital that all the organs are ‘open’ and have a clear channel to eliminate the toxins as they are released from your body. Your elimination organs include:

  • Colon
  • Kidneys
  • Lungs
  • Skin

Your liver and lymph system play a big part in filtering out toxins too. Your liver especially takes a hard hit when starting on your detox journey. It’s easy to just do a ‘Liver Flush’ which is basically drinking olive oil followed by lemon juice. But this is much too stressful to the body causing such symptoms like headaches, fatigue, dizziness, and nausea.

It’s much easier to simply cleanse your colon either by doing a Colon Hydrotherapy session with a professional therapist (you can find one here: http://i-act.org) or to do your own Coffee Enema at home.

Once your colon cleanse is started, you can then go to your next step which is to take herbs that stimulate your liver. These herbs will stimulate, tone, and rebuild your liver so that it can release the stored up toxins from the chemotherapy. These are a few of the best bitter herbs which can be taken as a tea or taken in capsule form :

  • Dandelion Root
  • Oregon Grape Root
  • Turkey Rhubarb Root
  • Yellowdock Root

 

The Most Effective Way To Detox Chemo

To get the biggest bang for your buck, it is best to use a multi-faceted approach because one therapy is not better than another, which is why combining them provides the best results. When you combine a daily routine of sweating, taking detox baths, eating the right diet, cleansing your colon and liver and most of all, focusing on your emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being your body will release the toxins slowly with the least amount of stress!

Do a little each day. It’s wise to remember that this is YOUR healing journey!

How To Use Clay Baths To Detox Chemo and Radiation Poisoning 

Living clay is 100% natural, and has been used for centuries by Native Americans to restore health for everything from wound healing to detoxing. Researchers have discovered that the unique curative properties of clay, also called montmorillonite, is capable of removing the toxins ingested from food grown in chemically saturated fields to the thousands of chemicals we are exposed to daily. Most especially clay can be considered as a powerful detoxifier after chemotherapy and radiation therapy.

When clay is consumed its vital force is released and mingles with the vital energy of the body creating a stronger, more powerful energy. The natural magnetic action transmits a remarkable power and helps to rebuild and restore the body down to the cellular level. (1)

When the immune system has been compromised, such as after chemotherapy or radiation therapy, clay stimulates the body’s inner resources to awaken the stagnant energy. It supplies the body with the available magnetism to rebuild and strengthen itself.

The best-known characteristic of clay is that it “acts as needed”. Clay is said to propel the immune system to find a new healthy balance. Clay strengthens the body to a point of higher resistance. In this way the body’s natural immune system has an improved chance of restoring and rebuilding itself quickly and efficiently. Since our immune system is the number one defense against cancer, it’s vital to do everything possible to restore it quickly after chemotherapy and radiation therapy.

Calcium montmorillonite, the second type of montmorillonite, is also known as “living clay” because it consists of minerals that enhance the production of enzymes in all living organisms.

What Happens When You Eat Clay?

If you haven’t thought about eating clay, you are missing a key component in using the powerful qualities of this substance. Especially after chemo or radiation therapy, you can consider taking clay internally to absorb the many toxic side-effects of these treatments.

Is it safe? Yes, but always ask your natural health care provider how to take it, especially if on any medications. A few things clay can help with:

  • Detoxification of digestive system (the absorptive action pulls contaminants from the body).
  • Fixes free oxygen in the blood stream (occurs once the liver is restored to full function).
  • Elimination of internal parasites, organic and non-organic toxicity.
  • Immune system support
  • Increases T-cell count
  • Fights free radicals
  • Mercury poison detoxifier
  • Trace mineral supplement
  • Alkalizing agent in the body

How To Take Clay

Internal Cleanse Detoxification: Drink one rounded teaspoon of clay powder daily mixed in 6-8 ounces of distilled water or juice, taken daily. Or take one teaspoon of Liquid Clay in 8 ounces of water. For best results take it on an empty stomach. It’s recommended to take the clay at night for maximum benefits.

It’s also recommended that when taking bentonite clay internally, to use it with Psyllium Husk, a natural plant based fiber. This is to make sure that the clay moves out of your system effectively and doesn’t cause any build up in your colon.

How To Use Clay For Burns

One of the many side effects of chemo and radiation therapy is the burns that can occur on the skin. This can be painful and irritating. Using clay not only alleviates the burn, but pulls out toxins through the skin safely and effectively.

Preparation of Clay Packs and Wraps: Mix 1 teaspoon powdered clay by slowly adding distilled water until a smooth consistency is formed. The clay should be stiff yet pliable. Any unused clay should be promptly covered and kept in a glass jar or sealable container to retain its moisture.

Smooth the clay over the burned area. It will dry and feel like a ‘pulling’ action is occurring. Let it sit on your skin for at least one hour, then gently rinse off with warm water.

Clay Bath Directions

Add up to 2 cups of powdered bentonite clay into the bathtub and then run very hot water over the clay. Use a wire whisk to stir the clay around and to help it dissolve. Once you’ve got about three inches of water in the tub and the clay is dissolved, start adding cooler water until the water reaches the desired temperature.

The bath should neither be too hot nor too cool, but should be a nice comfortable warm temperature. Bathing time depends upon your condition, but for best results, you can soak at least thirty minutes.

Another option is to take one cup of liquid bentonite clay and put it into the bath water.

After your clay bath, rinse off with warm water and apply coconut or olive oil to hydrate the skin.
