Cervical Cancer

Overview

Cancer is not a single disease with a single cause and a single type of treatment. There are more than 200 different types of cancer, each with its own name and treatment. Although cells in different parts of the body may look and work differently, most repair and reproduce themselves in the same way. Normally, cells divide in an orderly and controlled way. But if for some reason the process gets out of control, the cells carry on dividing and develop into a lump called a tumour. Tumours are either benign (non-cancerous) or malignant (cancerous). Doctors can tell if a tumour is benign or malignant by removing a piece of tissue (biopsy) and examining a small sample of cells under a microscope.

In a benign tumour the cells do not spread to other parts of the body and so are not cancerous. However, they may carry on growing at the original site, and may cause a problem by pressing on surrounding organs.

In a malignant tumour the cancer cells have the ability to spread beyond the original area of the body. If the tumour is left untreated, it may spread into surrounding tissue. Sometimes cells break away from the original (primary) cancer. They may spread to other organs in the body through the bloodstream or lymphatic system.

The lymphatic system is part of the immune system – the body’s natural defence against infection and disease. It’s made up of organs such as bone marrow, the thymus, the spleen, and lymph nodes. The lymph nodes throughout the body are connected by a network of tiny lymphatic tubes (ducts). The lymphatic system has two main roles: it helps to protect the body from infection and it drains fluid from the tissues.

When the cancer cells reach a new area they may go on dividing and form a new tumour. This is known as a secondary cancer or a metastasis.

Cervical cancer is an uncommon type of cancer that develops in a woman’s cervix. The cervix is the entrance to the womb from the vagina.

Cervical cancer often has no symptoms in its early stages. If you have symptoms, the most common is unusual vaginal bleeding, which can occur after sex, in between periods or after the menopause.

Abnormal bleeding doesn’t mean that you definitely have cervical cancer, but it’s a cause for concern. It’s important to see a licensed health practitioner as soon as possible.

Over the course of many years, the cells lining the surface of the cervix undergo a series of changes. In rare cases, these changed cells can become cancerous. However, cell changes in the cervix can be detected at a very early stage, and treatments can reduce the risk of cervical cancer developing.

Cervical cancer is the 5th most common cancer in women worldwide with approximately 471,000 new cases diagnosed each year. It’s sobering to think that a woman dies of cervical cancer approximately every 2 minutes.
In less developed countries, this type of cancer is the second most common in women and accounts for up to 300,000 annual deaths. 80% of the cases occur in low-income or middle-income countries.

Cervical cancer is the most common cancer for women in Central America and Southern Africa. The Caribbean, other parts of Africa, South America and South Eastern Asia also have very high incidences of this disease. Unfortunately, many women from these areas don’t have access to routine exams such as Pap smears.

Although the average age of diagnosis is 50, women as young as 17 can contract the disease. The Western Journal of Medicine has published an informative online article entitled Cervical Cancer In the Developing World.

US Statistics:   Cervical cancer is the 8th most common type of cancer in American women. More than 10,000 new patients develop cervical cancer each year, and 3,600 women in the US die from the advanced form of this disease annually.

United Kingdom:  Approximately 2,800 women in the UK are diagnosed with cervical cancer each year. As many as 1,100 UK women die from the disease which is the 12th most common cancer for UK women. In 2003, approximately 2300 women were diagnosed with cervical cancer in England alone.

In Canada, 1,350 cases are expected to be diagnosed during 2012.

The first European Cervical Cancer Prevention week was launched Jan 21-28, 2007, with the aim of increasing awareness and encouraging women to undergo annual Pap testing. In addition, community organizations such as the National Cervical Cancer Coalition www.nccc-online.org and Canadian Cancer Society www.cancer.ca also promote awareness and are committed to fighting cervical cancer worldwide.

The symptoms of cervical cancer aren’t always obvious and it may not cause any symptoms at all until it has reached an advanced stage. This is why it’s very important for you to attend your screening appointments for a cervical smear test. Symptoms to be aware of include:

  • Unusual bleeding –  In most cases, vaginal bleeding is the first noticeable symptom of cervical cancer. It usually occurs after having sex.
  • Bleeding at any other time, other than your expected monthly period, is also considered to be unusual. This includes bleeding after the menopause (when a woman’s monthly periods stop).
  • pain in and around your vagina when having sex
  • an unpleasant smelling vaginal discharge
  • pain when passing urine

Advanced cervical cancer:  If the cancer spreads out of your cervix and into surrounding tissue and organs, it can trigger a range of other symptoms, including:

  • constipation
  • blood in your urine (haematuria)
  • loss of bladder control (urinary incontinence)
  • bone pain
  • swelling of one of your legs
  • swelling of one or both kidneys, which can become misshapen due to a build-up of urine, and cause severe pain in your side or back; this type of swelling is known as hydronephrosis
  • changes to your bowel and bladder habits
  • loss of appetite
  • weight loss
  • tiredness and lack of energy

It is recommended that you contact your licensed health practitioner straight away if you experience:

  • bleeding after having sex (post-coital bleeding)
  • bleeding outside of your normal periods
  • new bleeding after the menopause

Vaginal bleeding is very common and can have a range of causes, so it doesn’t necessarily mean that you have cervical cancer.  However, despite being common, unusual vaginal bleeding is a symptom that needs to be investigated.

The spread of cervical cancer:

If cervical cancer is undiagnosed and untreated, it will slowly spread out of the cervix (neck of the womb) and into the surrounding tissue and organs. The cancer can spread down to the vagina and the surrounding muscles that support the bones of the pelvis. Alternatively, it can spread upwards, blocking the tube that runs from your kidneys to your bladder (ureters).

The cancer will then spread into your bladder, rectum (back passage) and eventually into your liver, bones and lungs. Cancerous cells can also spread through your lymphatic system. The lymphatic system is a series of nodes (glands) and channels that are spread throughout your body in a similar way to your blood circulation system.

The lymph nodes produce many of the specialised cells that are needed by your immune system (the body’s natural defence against infection and illness). If you have an infection, the nodes in your neck or under your armpits may be swollen.

In some cases of early cervical cancer, the lymph nodes close to the cervix contain cancerous cells.

And in some cases of advanced cervical cancer, lymph nodes in the chest and abdomen can be affected.

Human papillomavirus (HPV)

Almost all cases of cervical cancer occur in women who have been previously infected with the human papillomavirus (HPV). HPV is actually a group of viruses, rather than a single virus. There are more than 100 different types.

HPV is spread during sexual intercourse and is thought to be very common. An estimated 1 in 3 women will develop a HPV infection within two years of starting to have regular sex.

Some types of HPV do not cause any noticeable symptoms and the infection will pass without the need for treatment. Other types of HPV can cause genital warts.

Two types of HPV are known to have the highest risk of causing cervical cancer. They are:

  • HPV16 – which accounts for around 50-55% of all cases
  • HPV18 – which accounts for around 15-20% of all cases

A further 11 types of HPV also have a higher chance of causing cancer.

High-risk types of HPV are thought to contain genetic material that can be passed into the cells of the cervix. This material begins to disrupt the normal workings of the cells (see below), which can eventually cause them to reproduce uncontrollably, leading to the growth of a cancerous tumour.

Cervical intraepithelial neoplasia

Cancer of the cervix usually takes many years to develop. Before it does, the cells in the cervix often show changes, known as cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN).

CIN is a pre-cancerous condition. Pre-cancerous conditions do not pose an immediate threat to a person’s health, but they can potentially develop into ‘fully-blown’ cancer in the future. However, most women who have CIN won’t develop cervical cancer.

CIN is graded using a number system from one to three. The higher the number, the more abnormalities there are in affected cells. It is estimated that:

  • one third of women with CIN 1 will progress to CIN 2
  • around half of all women with CIN 2 will progress to CIN 3
  • around one third of women with CIN 3 will develop cervical cancer

Therefore if you develop CIN 1, your chances of developing cervical cancer at a later date are less than 1 in 30.

The progression from becoming infected with HPV to developing CIN and then developing cervical cancer is very slow. It usually takes at least six years to progress from an initial infection to CIN 3. It takes up to 10 years for CIN 3 to develop into cervical cancer.

Risk factors

The fact that HPV infection is very common but cervical cancer is relatively uncommon would seem to suggest that only a very small proportion of women are vulnerable to the effects of a HPV infection. There appear to be additional risk factors that affect an individual’s chance of developing cervical cancer.

Known risk factors include:

  • smoking – women who smoke are twice as likely to get cervical cancer than non-smokers; this may be due to harmful effects of chemicals found in tobacco on the cells of the cervix
  • having a weakened immune system – which can be the result of taking certain medications, such as immunosuppressants, which are used to stop the body rejecting donated organs, or as a result of a condition such as HIV/AIDS
  • taking the oral contraceptive pill for more than five years – women who do this are thought to have twice the risk of developing cervical cancer than those who do not take the pill
  • having children (the more children you have, the greater your risk – women who have two children have twice the risk of getting cervical cancer compared to women who do not have any children

The reason for the link between cervical cancer and childbirth is unclear. One theory is that the hormonal changes that occur during pregnancy could make the cervix more vulnerable to the effects of HPV.

As with all diseases this did not happen overnight. The very first thing you must do is see a licensed health professional. Find a list of practitioners in your local area here.

Here are some things you can discuss with your practitioner:

Health Protocols

Detox:

  • Do the Hydrogen Peroxide Protocol to strengthen the immune system:
  • Drink 3oz of Colloidal Silver, three or four times a day for 60 days www.colloidsforlife.com Silver has long been recognised as a powerful natural antibiotic.  Colloidal silver is silver that has been removed electronically from its source and then suspended in water.  It is used to treat a myriad of diseases.

Hydrotherapy:

  • We recommend one to three colonics a week for six months.  Find a practitioner here. Read more about colonics by clicking here. Find a practitioner here.
  • Most of the water that we drink is very acidic and in order to heal our bodies need a more alkaline state. During the program drink alkalised water, which you can buy from Real Water, or you can buy a Kangen Unit.

If you do the Jeff McCombs Candida Protocol you will already be avoiding all of the foods that trigger cancer.  However here are the foods to avoid at all costs.

  • Do not consume any artificial sweeteners, such as Splenda, NutraSweet or Aspartame
  • Do not consume high fructose corn syrup or mono-sodium glutamate.
  • Do not drink any carbonated beverages.
  • Avoid all fast food or chain restaurants and all processed food.
  • Avoid all canned food.
  • Eat mostly fresh, organic vegetables and fruits.

Avoid all foods that are high in unhealthy saturated and trans-fats, hydrogenated and partially-hydrogenated fats and oils, margarine, and shortening. Eliminate refined white flour, which is found in the majority of foods found on a typical grocery store shelf, including bread, bagels, crackers, cakes, cookies, and other baked good, pasta. Also avoid alcohol, caffeine, simple carbohydrates, sugars and sugar products, foods that are overly spicy, and all processed and commercial “junk” food. Stay clear of all inorganic pasteurized milk and dairy products, including yogurt and cheese; best to eat only raw, organic dairy products.

Empower yourself, and choose a diet emphasizing organic whole foods, including plenty of fresh, raw fruits and vegetables, oats, whole grains, such as brown rice, quinoa and buckwheat. Include a variety of preferably soaked, nuts and seeds, especially pumpkin and sunflower seeds. Minimize your intake of red meat; though be sure to consume adequate amounts of organic, free-range poultry, bison and wild-caught fish. Eat generous quantities of both raw and lightly steamed organic vegetables and large fresh salads daily. Preferably, cook with virgin coconut butter/oil and use extra virgin olive oil, high lignin flax seed oil and hemp seed oil as condiments on veggies and as the base for your daily salad dressing. Throughout the day, drink plenty of pure, filtered water, and avoid drinking—as well as bathing, and showering in—unfiltered tap water, as tap water contains heavy metals and pesticide residues that can settle in high concentrations in the body.

The raw food diet is a food plan that can be of great benefit if you suffer from breast cancer. Using the guidelines outlined above as a base camp for a clean and healthy diet, one can then transition into a raw food diet as desired. Raw food generates rapid results because of its ability to thoroughly detoxify and liberate your body’s previously untapped energy.

The diet mainly consists of raw fruits, vegetables, and soaked and sprouted nuts and seeds, supplemented with daily consumption of fresh green juices made from a variety of vegetables such as celery, romaine lettuce, spinach, carrot, kale, parsley, and an ever rotating seasonal selection of other organic veggies. Raw foodists enjoy salads, dehydrated flax crackers, seed and nut patés, blended soups, smoothies, and marinated veggies, often mixed with soaked sea vegetables. Since little to no cooked food is consumed, the raw diet has the advantage of instantly eliminating many common allergens. No cooked wheat or wheat by-products are consumed, and generally dairy is omitted, though some might choose to eat moderate quantities of raw goat or sheep milk products, often in the form of a fermented food, such as homemade raw kefir or yogurt.

Dr Gabriel Cousins, at the Tree of Life Center, endorses the raw food plan as the ultimate healing diet, and offers 100% raw food meals at his healing retreat in Patagonia, Arizona. An important note when choosing a raw food diet: there is an issue of trade-offs. You might miss cooked foods, though you will not miss cancer. More times than not the raw food diet presents itself as an incredible tool that can be used to quickly transition from a serious health challenge into a healing process, ultimately resulting in greater health and well-being.

Supplements:

  • Coral Calcium – Coral calcium website
  • Vitamin D has been shown to be a key factor in healing cancer. Take Vitamin D3 50,000-100,000 International Units a day  for a period of up to 4 weeks.
  • Wholefood supplements are the best way of ensuring your nutritional needs are met.  The best we know on the market is Kevin Trudeau’s “KT Daily” product.  You can find more details here.
  • Omega 3s:

Krill oil

Fish oil

Cod liver oil

Vegetarian

Hemp Seed Oil

  • Morter Supplements Trace Minerals
  • Selenium – an essential trace vitamin which acts as a deterrent against cancer in general.
  • Garlic – can help lower the risk of tumours
  • Vitamin C – found in citrus fruits, cantaloupe, green peppers – anti-cancer properties

Prescription and non-prescription medication:

What non-prescription and prescription drugs are you taking?  Your non-prescription and prescription are partially the reason that you have this illness or disease – you need to get off these medications but do so only under the guidance of a licensed health care practitioner.

We know that when the body is out of balance, energy doesn’t flow, leading blockages and eventually disease. Here are some things you can do to combat stress and restore balance:

  • Go to a Dr Morter BEST (Bio-Energetic Synchronisation Technique) Practitioner.
  • Sign up for Energetic Re-Balancing: 2 practitioners to consider are:

Ayurvedic Medicine

There are hundreds of herbs listed that have the potential to heal cancer. They are strongly purifying, and detoxifying. Most of these purifying and reducing herbs are bitter in taste. Visit a licensed practitioner who will be able to discuss several examples of strongly reducing, anti-carcinogenic herbs including red clover, burdock root, dandelion root, guggul, turmeric and chaparral. There are many herbs used to reduce tumour growth, alleviate pain, nausea, stress and anxiety and other symptoms of discomfort. Herbs can be taken internally or applied over the tumour as a paste.

Some herbs are anti-oxidants such as amla berry or are detoxifying such as triphala.
Chyavanprash made from Indian gooseberry (amla)  can be taken for convalescence and tissue healing. For pain and swelling boswellia serrata, triphala guggul ashwagandha and punarnava have been proved to be beneficial. For anxiety and stress brahmi and ashwagandha are good nerve tonics.

Cat’s claw (Uncaria tomentosa) has been shown to actually reduce cancerous cellular growth.
Manjishta (Rubia cordifolia) has been shown to be anti-carcinogenic and is often used as a part of uterine and ovarian cancer formulas.
Triphala is recommended and used more than any other Ayurvedic herbal formulation. Popular for its unique ability to gently cleanse and detoxify the system while simultaneously replenishing and nourishing it, this traditional formula supports the proper functions of the digestive, circulatory, respiratory and genitourinary systems.
Triphala has been shown to have strong anti-carcinogenic properties.
In a study at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine triphala was fed orally to mice grafted with human pancreatic tumours and showed to be an extremely effective inhibitor of the cancer process. Triphala triggered the cancerous cells to die off and significantly reduced the size of the tumours without causing any toxic side effects.

Ayurvedic Therapies:

  • Svedana
    The svedana (Ayurvedic steam bath) detoxifies and cleanses, while the body is gently steamed with a variety of purifying Ayurvedic herbs. The theory behind hyperthermia (heat therapy) is that raising the temperature of the body increases circulation and also increases the supply of oxygen to the cancer site. Cancer cells do not thrive in the presence of oxygen. Tumours and cells located near the surface of the body are more vulnerable to heat treatments than those protected deep inside. In the Ayurvedic steam sauna the head is always kept cool which makes it easier and more pleasant to endure prolonged high temperatures. In addition there are localized steam treatments available. Hyperthermia has produced excellent results in cancer therapy.
  • Abhyanga oil massage
    Daily self-abhyanga is the most important act of self–love because it rebuilds ojas (stability) in the mind.
    Research suggests that sesame oil may have potential as a cancer fighter, particularly anti-skin cancer, but also other cancers as it penetrates the body through the skin during an Ayurvedic massage and possesses antioxidant qualities which help fight free radicals. Free radicals are the products of oxidative reactions in the body that promote cancer development. The abhyanga self- massage also stimulates lymph drainage and detoxification through the body’s largest organ of elimination – the skin.
  • Mental and Emotional Purification
    Healing begins with quieting the mind. Meditation, pranayama (yogic breathing), visualization, yoga asanas, periods of silence, walks in nature can all help to free up blocked mental energy and promote healing. Meditation is the king of all sattvic practices. By finding the inner silence the individual dives deep into the well of pure consciousness, unlimited potential; unlocking the body’s self- healing power. Shirodhara, the pouring of warm sesame oil over the forehead will deeply relax and rejuvenate the mind and resolve deep-seated tension and traumas.

Traditional Chinese Medicine

Consult a licensed practitioner who may discuss or recommend the following:

  • Acupuncture
  • Qigong
  • Acupressure
  • Herbs for Depressing Cancer Cells –  Tulipa edulis (Shan Ci Gu). The active ingredient in T. edulis (Shan Ci Gu) is colchicine.
  • Herbs with Anti-cancer Properties –  The herbs in this group include herbs for cleansing the body of Heat toxins such as odlenlandia (Bai Hua She She Cao), lobelia (Ban Zhi Lian), and rhizoma paridis (Qi Ye Yi Zhi Hua).
  • Herbs for eliminating Blood Stasis such as rhubarb (Da Huang), notoginseng root (Tian Qi), bugleweed (Ze Lan), and pycnostelma (Xu Chang Qing).
  • Herbs for Immunity: Immune system enhancing herbs include astragalus (Huang Qi), ligustrum seed (Nu Zhen Zi), cordyceps sinensis (Dong Chong Xia Cao), gynostemma pentapphyllum (Jiao Gu Lan), polyporus (Zhu Ling), and reishi (Ling Zhi).
  • Herbs for Preventing Alterations: Three herbal seeds have the function of preventing the alterations in breast cell genes that can lead to cancer: ligustrum seed (Nu Zhen Zi), cuscuta seed (Tu Si Zi), and lycii fruit (Gou Qi Zi).

Aromatherapy

Research now shows that massage can be very beneficial to those with cancer, specifically for managing pain and depression. The gentle massage used during an aromatherapy massage promotes relaxation and helps to eliminate toxins from the body. Even a simple hand massage can have a positive effect.

The essential oils of grapefruit (citrus paradisii), orange (citrus senensis) and lemon (citrus limonum) contain D-limonene, which has shown to have anti-tumor properties, chemotherapeutic activity and low toxicity. It is particularly beneficial for breast and colon cancer. Note that these citrus oils are photo-toxic and should not be used topically on people with skin cancer. When possible, organic essential oils should be used. These citrus oils, as well as neroli essential oil, are also antidepressants and help with anxiety. The hydrosol of neroli can be used as a body, room or linen spray. In addition to the citrus oils, other essential oils and hydrosols, which aid with killing of cancer cells include ginger (zingiber officinalis) essential oil which can be inhaled or taken internally in water, to ease nausea.

The essential oil and hydrosol of frankincense (boswellia carteri) has shown anti-cancer, antimicrobial and antioxidative activity. Frankincense can also distinguish between normal and cancerous cells and suppress cancer cell viability. Sweet fern (comptonia peregrina) and sweet gale (myrica gale) hydrosols can be combined and used topically as a compress or diluted in water and drank throughout the day. Both plants have shown to be cytotoxic (toxic to cells) against human lung and colon cancer cell lines.

Greenland moss, aka Labrador Tea (ledum greonlandicum) is one of the most powerful therapeutic hydrosols and only needs to be about 10% of the blend to be effective. It is currently in experimental stages for use with liver cancer and has shown anticancer activity against malignant lung and colon tumours.

Homeopathic Medicine

The homeopathic remedy Hansi, also known as Enercel, developed by Argentinian biologist Juan Jose Hirschmann, can be particularly helpful for many different types of cancer. Other useful homeopathic remedies include Apis mellifica, causticum, chiaphilla umbellate, clematis, lycopodium, medorrhinum, pulsatilla, sulphur, and thuja.

Herbs

Herbs that have proven to be beneficial in easing cancer symptoms include Artemisia, pokeroot, periwinkle, mistletoe (Viscum album), colchicines, hemlock, Berberis aquifolium, foxglove (Digitalis purpurea), and burdock root. Hoxsey formula (an herbal formula, developed by the late Harry Hoxsey, N.D.) is recommended, as is Essiac, a traditional cancer remedy of Native Americans. The herbal spice tumeric, which contains curcumin, an anti-cancer agent, can also be helpful, as can astragalus and maitake, a medicinal mushroom. Fennel tea can help to reduce the effects of chemotherapy and radiation.

Other useful herbs for helping to address co-factors related to cancer, such as immune deficiencies, include Cat’s claw (uno de gato), Echinacea, garlic, green tea, oregano oil, Pau d’arco, and nettle root. Milk thistle can be helpful because of its ability to detoxify the liver and improve hormone balance. Also consider Chimaphila umbellata, or pipsissewa, (an evergreen plant) horsetail, and uva ursi, which all have potent antiseptic properties. Betulinic Acid from Birch trees has been shown to block the growth of melanoma and thuja tincture has served as a successful therapy for many cancer cases, as has bromelain, phenolic antioixidants from mint, centella extract from gotu kola (hydrocotyle centella), perillyl alcohol from lavender flowers, pollen from honeybees, pearl barley (hordeum vulgare), reishi mushroom (ganoderma lucidum), shiitake mushroom (lentinula elodes), cauliflower (brassica oleracea), wax gourd (benincasa hispida), calendula (calendula officinalis), chaparral (larrea divaricata and larrea tridentate), white mulberry (morus alba), Japanese pepper (piper futokadsura), thyme (thymus serpyllum), Chinese cucumber (trichosanthes kirilowii) and stinging nettle (urtica dioica.)

Other

Juice Therapy

Combine red cabbage, celery, and lettuce juice, and drink 8 ounces twice a day. Carrot, cucumber, beet, radish, and garlic juice can also be helpful Combine grape, black cherry and blackcurrant. Wheatgrass juice is also beneficial, as is asparagus juice and fresh apple juice. Fresh green juices are an important nutrient dense boost to the diet; create new combinations of vegetables, and discover your personal favourites.

Folate and Fibre

Beans, lentils, peas are high in folate, a B vitamin that protects cells from DNA damage. If colon cancer runs in your family, pile your plate high with these foods. They also contain fibre. According to a study from Harvard University, involving nearly 89,000 women with a family history of colon cancer, those who consumed more than 400 mcg of folate each day lowered their risk by more than 52 per cent compared to women who consumed just 200 mcg a day. You can get about 100 to 150 mcg just by eating a cup of chickpeas or cooked spinach. A medium orange contains about 50 mcg. Of course, it pays to get more folate even if you don’t have a family history of colon cancer. Several studies show it could cut your risk by 40 per cent.

Aim for 400 mcg of folate daily. You may be getting that much already if you take a multivitamin each day or start your morning with orange juice and a fortified cereal. But you can also get there by eating at least 5 servings of whole grains each day along with 7 to 10 servings of fruit and vegetables. At least one of those servings should be dark leafy greens or legumes, such as kidney beans, black beans or chickpeas (also called garbanzo beans).

Broccoli

Broccoli does two jobs as a cancer fighter. It contains the anti-tumour compounds found in cruciferous vegetables as well as a fair amount of folate.

Mushrooms

A mainstay in Chinese medicine, mushrooms help to promote health and longevity. They have an immune-boosting effect which helps reduce the risk of cancer and enhances heart health.

Soybeans

Soybeans and other legumes contain diadzein and genistein, naturally occurring phytoestrogens which block the action of oestrogen in the body, slowing the growth of hormonally-dependent tumours. Genistein also blocks the activity of certain oncogenes (chromosomal genes believed to initiate cancer.)

Spices

Curry powder, turmeric, garlic, ginger, cayenne pepper re anti-cancer, immune-stimulating, anti-oxidant and cholesterol-lowering and have a multitude of health-enhancing effects.

Tomatoes

Tomatoes contain lycopene (the substance that gives tomatoes their deep red colour) which belongs to a family of natural pigments called carotenoids. Lycopene is an excellent anti-oxidant capable of protecting the body against many degenerative diseases including  cervical, prostate and gastrointestinal cancers. Processed tomatoes such as those in pasta sauce, rather than fresh produce a greater protective effect.

Lifestyle

Exercise regularly, at least three times a week for 45-60 minutes each session. If you smoke, stop, and keep away from exposure to second hand smoke. Also avoid drinking alcohol, coffee, and all products that contain caffeine. Take care to properly manage stress and reduce your overall stress levels, as stress can negatively affect healthy immune function. In addition, drink an 8-ounce glass of pure, filtered water every two hours during the day to help flush out your urinary tract and keep properly hydrated.

Biopharmaceutical Therapies

These include alkylglycerols, anti-neoplaston therapy, hydrazine sulphate, shark cartilage and amygdalin. Each of these therapies has been developed by highly credentialed physicians and medical researchers and what they have in common is the use of nontoxic, naturally-derived compounds that rebalance the body’s biochemical functioning.

Immune Enhancement Therapies

These are frequently used by alternative physicians to treat cancer. Consult a licensed practitioner to discuss Transfer Factor, immune nutrients from milk protein, Livingston Therapy, T/Tn Antigen Breast Cancer Vaccine, Anti-Mycoplasma Auto Vaccine, Coley’s Toxins, Pleomorphism and SANUM Remedies, Dendritic Cell Therapy.

Metabolic Therapies

Visit a licensed practitioner to discuss Lelley’s Nutritional-Metabolic Therapy, , Gerson Therapy, Issel’s Whole Body Therapy, Insulin Potentitation Therapy.

Exercise

  • Go for a walk outside in the sun every day for an hour.
  • Laugh every day as often as you can, as much as you can.
