The healing power of food

Kale is a green leafy vegetable that is a huge source of the antioxidant sulforaphane. This antioxidant helps fight all kinds of cancer including prostate, skin, intestines and breast. Kale is also full of Indole which helps fight colon and cervical cancer. Kale has tons more antioxidants than spinach or broccoli and adding a little bit to your diet is a good idea. A serving of Kale gives you 13 times the Vitamin K you need, and nearly twice the amount of Vitamin A.

This fuzzy little fruit has twice as much Vitamin C as an orange and about as much potassium as a banana. This tiny fruit has a sweet bold flavour and is full of cancer fighting vitamins! Studies have shown that this fruit also decreases asthmatic symptoms in children who ate it on a regular basis. And on top of all of this, it is high in fibre as well!

Another delicious fruit that has a positive effect on your health are cherries! In ancient Chinese medicine, cherry juice was used to fight anemia and help relieve arthritis. Cherries have a high level of anthocyanins which are known to help with inflammation, fighting cancers, neurological diseases and diabetes.

Beans are most commonly known for the effect they have on a certain bodily function. Beans are very good for you though! They help heal the digestive tract, protect against diabetes and are loaded with more antioxidants that meat, grains or fruit. Beans are known to actually stop cancerous cells from spreading.

Watercress is a food that contributes no calories to your diet but is loaded with nutrients. Talk about a miracle food! Ounce for ounce, it has more vitamins and calcium that any other food on the planet! Adding some watercress to your salad daily not only prevents cancer but it kills cancerous cells and it will keep the carcinogens in your food from infecting the good cells.

It is well known that spinach is a very healthy food because it is high in vitamins. Spinach has been known to kill cancerous cells in those with colon cancer. It also helps heal and prevent those with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. This delicious vegetable is full of iron, calcium, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals.
