Years ago, I had a patient who answered the question: “Are you regular”? He replied with a no nonsense “Yes”. He volunteered that he has a bowl movement once a week like clockwork. I thought that is more like calendar work.
One of the problems with chemotherapy is the chemicals destroy the lining of the digestive system. For example, the cells of your stomach are replaced every 2 minutes and up to 2 days when you are fasting.1 What this means for a person doing allopathic medicine and taking chemotherapy is the chemotherapy drugs are killing your digestive cells. Chemotherapy targets cells that divide and reproduce very rapidly. Stomach cells look like cancer cells to chemotherapy drugs.2
Oatmeal the Breakfast for Regular People:
- ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1/8 teaspoon pink salt
- 1 ¼ cup of water (pH of 9.5 if possible)
- ¾ cup raw organic rolled oats
- ½ teaspoon chia seeds
- 1 tablespoon golden flax seed Grind Chia and flax in coffee grinder before cooking
- 1tablespoon brown flax seed
- 1 tablespoon raw shelled organic sunflower seeds
- 1 tablespoon virgin olive oil
- ¼ cup organic raisins
Set aside oatmeal, chia seeds, sunflower seeds, flax seeds, in a container. Have the olive oil and raisins in separate containers. I usually just dump some olive oil, without bothering to measure it.
Using a 1 quart stainless steel pot bring the water, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg right up to the start of boiling, do not let it boil. Turn the heat off. Place the oatmeal and the seeds into the almost boiling water, quickly dump the olive oil into the mix and stir to insure all are thoroughly mixed. Finally stir in the raisins. Cover the pot and let it cool / cook while it absorbs all the water into the mix.
In about 30 minutes you have the making to a very regular day.
Here is the Why:
Oatmeal is one of nature’s best water soluble fibers. This means it absorbs water and toxins which are then eliminated from the body.
Chia seeds and flax seeds are extremely mucilaginous, providing a protective coating on the digestive system. Both providing superfood grade health benefits.
Chia seed – omega 3 fatty acids, fiber and vegan friendly protein. Great side effect is, chia can turn diabetes II around. Defends against breast and cervical cancer.3
Flax seed – is a pre-biotic, it turns into good gut bacteria, also anti-inflammatory reduces the risk of breast and ovarian cancer4
Sunflower seeds – a superfood providing vitamin E and a strong antioxidant. My favorite part is they taste and chew like nuts.
Organic raisins – 50% of all raisins come from about 50 miles surrounding Fresno California. They are sprayed with poison, bug killer and then dried; concentrating all the residue into the raisin. Please spend a little more money and buy organic raisins.5
When I was in medical school we were instructed to have a bowel movement after every meal. The whole class grunted with uniform agreement, “Yea, like that is going to happen”. Guess what, it does not take long with this regular oatmeal breakfast. You can once again become a regular person and eat a lot less in the meantime.
