Dr Oz: Anti-Inflammatory Magic Spice Mix, Matcha Tea & Cancer Fighting Foods

Dr Oz did a show called Ask Dr Oz: Cancer Edition, because he knows that Cancer is one of the diseases that we fear most.  We all know someone who has been touched by Cancer – or almost everyone at least.  94% of Doctor Oz’s Audience said that either they had cancer themselves or they know someone who had cancer.  The biggest questions about how to treat cancer and how to prevent cancer is what Dr Oz focused on today.  Cancer treatment is expanding to treating the whole body and not just the disease.  In addition to chemotherapy, radiation and surgery, people are also addressing pain management, nutrition, and even doing things like acupuncture, meditation and yoga.  Dr Oz was joined by three cancer experts: Dr Steven Standiford, the national director of surgical oncology at a center that focuses on integrative cancer treatments, Dr Deborah Axelrod, a leading cancer surgeon and patient advocate, and Rachel Beller, a spokesperson for the American Cancer Society and a nutritionist who focuses on nutrition in Cancer Management and Prevention.

Dr Oz: Cancer Fighting Foods

Dr Oz was told by a lady in his Dr Oz Matcha Teaaudience that she had Colon Cancer and it came back again.  What foods should she avoid and what foods should she eat to fight cancer?

Dr Oz: Cancer Foods to Avoid

Rachel Beller told Dr Oz that you should avoid red meat, especially red meat that is processed with Sodium Nitrate.

Beller also said that you should eat a lot of cruciferous vegetables, like cauliflower.  To really boost the cancer fighting properties, try the following Cancer Fighting Spice Mix:

Dr Oz: Anti-Inflammatory Magic Spice Mix for Cancer Fighting

Rachel Beller told Dr Oz that you should mix together 1/2 tsp black pepper, 1/2 tsp turmeric and 1/2 tsp garlic salt.  Apply this Anti-Inflammatory Spice Mix to your cauliflower and cruciferous vegetables before you roast them and they are delicious and will help to fight off cancer.

Dr Oz: Matcha Green Tea

Rachel Beller said that green tea is great for you, but you need 4-7 cups a day to make a difference.  Matcha Green Tea is great though because 1/4 – 1/2 tsp of Macha Tea is equal to 8-10 cups of regular tea in terms of Antioxidant Power.  For some added taste, squeeze some lemon into your Matcha Tea!

    I was surprised that Rachel Beller, Dr. Oz’s diet expert, confused “nitrate” and “nitrite.” She mentioned that we should avoid processed meat due to sodium nitrate. Nitrate is an element found in fresh foods. It is also an ingredient used in medications to dilate blood vessels. Sodium nitrite, on the otherhand, is the food preservative that promotes certain cancers.

    Is that called “Green Tea Powder” on your website? If it is and is the real stuff, it definitley is cheaper. I plan to stop by when I run out.
