Cancer Rules :the breasts and the stomach. This part of the anatomy has always symbolized nourishment and motherhood.

Health Habits : Cancerians are susceptible to gaining weight in later years. Tension, anxiety, and emotional stress are the leading causes of illness among Cancerians.

Born under a water sign, they tend to overindulge in wine and alcohol, which you do not tolerate well.



Cancer's cell salt is calcium fluoride, which unites with albumen and oil in the body's system to keep elastic and connective tissues healthy.

Eat : Deficiency of calcium fluoride can cause varicose veins, receding gums, curvature of the spine, & eye problems. Food sources for calcium fluoride are egg yolks, whole grain rye, yogurt, beets, fish and oysters. Cancerians are prone to skin disorders when there is a lack of calcium in their diet. They should consume milk, cheese, lettuce, and tomatoes, which are high in calcium. Okra, which also contains calcium, is an aid in reducing stomach inflammations. Fresh vegetables, fresh fruit, and lean protein are a daily must for the Cancerian.

Cancer people should stay away from spicy, highly seasoned food, and should forego hot pepper sauce and horseradish. Excess sweets make their stomachs worse. Cancerians need to watch their diets very carefully in order to keep their digestive systems healthy and their weight under control.



CANCER IS A WATER SIGN

The water element rules the reproductive and lymphatic systems and body liquids−including blood, mucus and lymph. Water lubricates, flushes and cools the body. Water signs are exceptionally sensitive to their environment, particularly to fungi, bacteria and viruses.

Health issues for water signs generally have a strong emotional component. Water sign people easily pick up negativity from others. They tend to brood on their health and imagine problems to be greater than they are. Their health problems tend to recur in cycles.

Excess Water

These people tend toward sluggish digestion, poor assimilation and slow metabolism. Stagnant excess water may manifest as mucus, cysts, tumors and swellings, as well as systemic candida. Excess water can manifest as weight problems. It is seldom helpful to decrease dietary intake alone.
