A superfoods diet can make a large difference in preventing and fighting skin cancer or almost any disease.
The standard, overly processed, toxic laden foods that, most have been accustomed to, do little more than attract disease.
Choosing healthy foods may have you thinking of broccoli and cauliflower, but there are lot’s more foods to consider, that can help you to feel good and fight off disease .
There are different perspectives to eating a very healthy diet.
Here’s where I’m going to say that there are no unhealthy vs. healthy foods. All `real` foods should be consumed proportionately according to our bodies needs.
I say `real` foods because I’m talking about natural foods that spring forth out of the earth and from animals that roam the earth as originally designed by The Creator.
It's these foods that make up a superfoods diet!
That alone eliminates a majority of the processed, hybrid, genetically altered, grown by hydroponics, radiated, toxic chemical filled most popular foods found in today’s Supermarkets!
If you really want to know about a superfoods diet, you may have to start thinking, seriously different, about what …and how much …of everything you consume, especially if you already are afflicted with ANY disease, whether it be High Blood Pressure, Diabetes or Skin Cancer.
Let's look at what a superfoods diet should include.
• Kale -Green leafy vegetables are one of the most nutritious foods known. They have lots of chlorophyll and Kale beats them all. They contain high amounts of Vitamin A, C and K, iron, magnesium, folate, potassium, lutein and phytochemicals that may help prevent cancer and disease. Kale rises above the others by providing a large amount of calcium, folic acid, vitamin B6 and manganese. Kale and other leafy greens can well be considered a cellular booster. They are best raw or lightly steamed.
• Seaweed or sea vegetables -Sea vegetables supply a higher concentrated amount of vitamins and minerals than any other food on the planet. All of the nutritional minerals identified at this time in history are contained in seaweed. Seaweed has more Vitamin A than carrots and high amounts of vitamins C, D, B and K. It’s also very rich in protein. Sea vegetables can be found in health food stores, mostly the larger ones and on-line.
• Cacao -Chocolate is among the highest anti-oxidant foods we have. It has far more chromium and magnesium than any other food. I know this may sound like good news to you, but be sure to buy raw and organic only. You can use it creatively. For instance, powdered cacao in a morning cup of tea or smoothie.
• Grains -Amongst most experts, Quinoa ranks above the other whole grains for its highest nutritional value. Quinoa contains high levels of calcium, potassium, zinc and vitamin E. It is known to strengthen the kidneys and heart. Other recommended whole grains include brown rice, barley, amaranth, millet, wheat berries, wild rice and more. All whole grains provide high nutritional support and long lasting energy.
• Berries -Berries are best eaten raw and are considered a natural cleanser for the body. They are a big source of Vitamin E, C, phytochemicals, calcium and folic acid. Some have been found to help fight off cancer. A top food in Chinese medicine is the goji berry which is one of the highest anti-oxidant foods.
More foods that should be included in a superfoods diet are:
• Miso –A fermented food extremely high in digestive enzymes and probiotics. Be sure to use the traditionally processed miso without chemicals, found in natural food stores. I prefer barley miso, aged at least 2 yrs. It’s the most strengthening. Eighteen months will do if it’s not available. Read the instructions and never boil miso (it kills the digestive enzymes). I recently bought a great book called Wild Fermentation by Sandor Ellix Katz. It’s full of good information on the benefits and how to make lots of fermented foods.
• Vegetables (of course!) – Cruciferous vegetables rank the highest and the most common are as follows: horseradish -land cress -ethiopian mustard -kale -collard greens -chineese broccoli -cabbage -brussels sprout -kohlrabe -broccoli -cauliflower -wild broccoli -bok choy -chineese cabbage (also called nappa) -turnip root and it’s greens -rutabaga -siberian kale -mustard seed and greens -watercress -radish -daikon -wasabi. Carrots, squash (hard winter and summer), chiles, garlic, ginger root, and more should all be a part of your superfoods diet.
Continuing the list of superfoods...
• Salmon Wild caught from the Pacific
• Sweet potatoes
• More and more… (they all have their place, time and purpose, as well as the pleasure of enjoyment)
A lot of these foods won’t be found in your “run of the mill” supermarkets, however some will.
As much as you can, buy organic and fresh.
If you find it difficult to make a serious change to a superfoods diet at this time, then try making a gradual transition and use wholefood supplements to make up the difference.
If you want to make a change in your diet and improve your health, as I did during my stage 4 squamous cell skin cancer and all throughout the recovery, to this day.
You’re going to need to do some reading, consulting and educating yourself, especially if you're already dealing with some disease.

"MELANOMA : “NO BIG DEAL ” IT'S JUST SKIN CANCER!
Hi! My name is Nick and I’m 56 yrs. old and this is part of my story. Let me tell you, I was like a lot of people out there and I had no idea that skin cancer was anything bad. I had Basal cell back in 2007, but that was no big deal and it was removed and that was the end of that. No one told me that it was a type of skin cancer (I looked it up on my computer). But still no big deal, it would not kill me.
But I did know the word "Melanoma"....." --by Nick

The Weather Channel has done well posting this information and photos to help you spot skin cancer, including melanoma.
It can be hard to spot, even for a professional.
The bottom line is to get an expert's opinion about any suspicious mole or lesion on your skin. If necessary, get a second opinion and/or request a biopsy. it’s always better to be safe than sorry.
