Cancer is the general name for a group of more than 100 diseases in which cells in a part of the body begin to grow out of control. Although there are many kinds of cancer, they all start because abnormal cells grow out of control. Untreated cancers can cause serious illness and even death.

Normal body cells grow, divide, and die in an orderly fashion. During the early years of a person’s life, normal cells divide more quickly until the person becomes an adult. After that, cells in most parts of the body divide only to replace worn-out or dying cells and to repair injuries.

Cancer cells develop because of damage to DNA. This substance is in every cell and directs all of the cell’s activities. Most of the time when DNA becomes damaged, either the cell dies or is able to repair the DNA. In cancer cells, the damaged DNA is not repaired. People can inherit damaged DNA, which accounts for inherited cancers. Many times though, a person’s DNA gets damaged by things in the environment, like, chemicals, viruses, tobacco smoke or too much sunlight.

The one line short definition of cancer is ” cells gone wild”: there is no more order”, these cells have changed the rules and are doing their own thing…

The human body functions at its best when order is established: it follows a certain rhythm and cycles, therefore introducing rhythm and regularity in your life is one of the best strategies towards cancer recovery.

Everything in the body functions on a specific cycle:
*the circadian cycle=sleep & wake cycle

*during sleep all organs regenerate: RECHARGE YOUR BATTERIES

*hormonal cycle: not only women’s, but also adrenals (stress) hormones: for ex., cortisone is highest at 10am, where melatonin(sleep hormone)is highest at 11pm; that’s why the best benefits of sleep are achieved while sleeping before midnight.

*all organs cycle: Liver-regeneration time is between3-5am
Routine & regularity are also important for bowel function

If your goal is to get healthier, the only way you can achieve it is to change the way your body function now. Rhythm and regularity are important components of your natural cancer recovery.

Are you ready to start your natural recovery to optimal health?

    Irving Dardik was a member of the old FSC and wrote articles about the importance of rhythm to cell health many years ago. He trained athletes by following natural cycles in bursts of activity which he says worked their way down to the cellular level cycles.
