100 points to cancer free: sleep

+1 point: Adequate sleep at night

Give yourself 1 point if you believe that adequate sleep allows you to fight cancer cells and allows you to detox or cleanse your cells from toxins.

How

In cold temp, with less worry and right time each night, with small protein rich food at dinner before 7pm, allow your body to get rid of toxins by getting adequate sleep. Write a journal or notes to free your mind from worries and constant thoughts and allow your body to rest and relax with calm mind.  It takes 30 minutes to digest eggs (a complete protein) while it takes 4 hours to digest red meat.

Story

Many cancer clients have less than 4 hours of uninterrupted sleep years before they had cancer. And recent research attributes cancer growth to lack of sleep from cancer cells or microbes causing cancer not allowing the human body to sleep at night.

Prevalence of Short Sleep Duration (<7 hours) for Adults Aged ≥ 18 Years, by Census Tract, United States, 2014

Map displaying model-based prevalence of short sleep duration (<7 hours), by census tract in the United States, 2014. Data sources for development of model included CDC’s Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (2014), the U.S. Census (2010), and the American Community Survey (2010-2014). Census tract short sleep prevalence estimates ranged from 19.8% to 59.8%.

Sleep is profoundly altered during the course of infectious diseases. The typical response to infection includes an initial increase in nonrapid eye movement sleep (NREMS) followed by an inhibition in NREMS. REMS is inhibited during infections. Bacterial cell wall components, such as peptidoglycan and lipopolysaccharide, macrophage digests of these components, such as muramyl peptides, and viral products, such as viral double-stranded RNA, trigger sleep responses. They do so via pathogen-associated molecular pattern recognition receptors that, in turn, enhance cytokine production. Altered sleep and associated sleep-facilitated fever responses are likely adaptive responses to infection. Normal sleep in physiological conditions may also be influenced by gut microbes because the microbiota is affected by circadian rhythms, stressors, diet, and exercise. Furthermore, sleep loss enhances translocation of viable bacteria from the intestine, which provides another means by which sleep–microbe interactions impact neurobiology.


Connie Dello Buono and Michelle Benedicto are writing an ebook ‘About Cancer’, a recipe and lifestyle to fight cancer growth, stories, research and how tos from kitchen to table, from hands to healing and from exercise to cell growth.

We wanted to ask you what moves you to read a book about cancer written by the non-medical pros.
