Natural Remedies For Over 200 Illnesses

Testicular Cancer

Overview

Testicular cancer, or cancer of the testicles, is one of the less common cancers, usually affecting younger men between the ages of 15 and 44. The different types of testicular cancer are classified by the type of cells the cancer first begins in; the most common form of testicular cancer is known as ‘germ cell testicular cancer’. This form of cancer accounts for around 95% of all cases. Germ cells are a type of cell that the body uses to help create sperm.

There are two main subtypes of germ cell testicular cancer. They are:

  • Seminomas, which account for around 40% of all germ cell testicular cancers
  • Non-seminomas, which account for around 60% of all germ cell testicular cancers

Less common types of testicular cancer include:

  • Leydig cell tumors, which account for around 1-3% of cases
  • Sertoli cell tumors, which account for around 1% of cases

The most common symptom of testicular cancer is a painless lump or swelling in the testicles. Other symptoms can include:

  • A dull ache in the scrotum (the sac of skin that hangs underneath the penis and contains the testicles)
  • A feeling of heaviness in the scrotum

Testicular cancer is relatively uncommon, accounting for just 1% of all cancers that occur in men. Rates of testicular cancer are five times higher in white men than in black men. The reasons for this are unclear.

The number of cases of testicular cancer that are diagnosed each year in the UK has roughly doubled since the mid-1970s. Again, the reasons for this are unclear.

Testicular cancer is one of the most treatable types of cancer and over 95% of men with early stage testicular cancer will be completely cured.

Even cases of more advanced testicular cancer, where the cancer has spread outside the testicles to nearby tissue, have an 80% chance of being cured.

The cause or causes of testicular cancer are unknown, but a number of things have been identified, which may increase the chance of developing the condition. These include:

  • Having a family history of testicular cancer
  • Being born with undescended testicles. About 3-5% of boys are born with their testicles located inside their abdomen, which usually descend into the scrotum during the first four months of life

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.

Keep your penis clean, including under the foreskin, and use condoms to minimize the risk of HIV.

Here are some things you can discuss with your practitioner:

Health Protocols

Detoxification Therapy:

  • 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.
  • Try an Enerhealth Botanicals cleanse. Click here to discover more

Hydrotherapy:

  • We recommend regular colonics to remove toxicity from the body.  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 alkalized water, which you can buy from Real Water.

Cancer weakens the body’s immune system by affecting the blood cells that protect against disease. As a result, your body cannot fight infection as well as a healthy person’s body can.

It is important to take care when handling and preparing food to prevent infections that may come from food.

Tips:

  • Wash your hands thoroughly before you prepare food and eat.
  • Keep all food preparation areas clean by wiping them hot soapy water.
  • Wash fruit and vegetables as thoroughly as possible.
  • Eat or throw out packaged food by the use-by date.
  • When eating takeaway and restaurant food, avoid food that has been left standing for long periods and food that may have been contaminated with bacteria, e.g. salad bars, sushi, raw or uncooked meat, fish, shellfish, poultry and eggs.
  • When shopping, take an insulated container for cold and frozen food.
  • Don’t re-freeze food.
  • Keep raw meat separate from ready-to-eat food.
  • Use separate utensils and chopping boards for raw meat and vegetables.
  • Ensure raw meat is not able to drip onto other foods in the fridge.
  • Keep hot food hot, and make sure meat, chicken and seafood are cooked and heated right through.
  • Refrigerate leftover food immediately – don’t let it cool on benchtops.
  • Thaw frozen food in the refrigerator.
  • Avoid eating raw egg (for example, in milk drinks).

It is important to not add further toxicity to your system so try to adhere to the following:

  • 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 restaurants.
  • Avoid all canned food.
  • Eliminate conventional dairy products.  The best dairy products are raw, unpasteurised and homogenised dairy from grass fed cows.  If this is unavailable, then buy organic dairy.
  • Avoid conventional beef.  The best beef is organic grass fed beef.

www.grasslandbeef.com The second best is organic meat; this includes beef, veal, lamb, chicken and turkey.

Supplements:

Certain supplements may be able to help fight the side effects patients experience from testicular cancer:

Magnesium – The fourth most abundant mineral in the body, magnesium is important for bone formation and protecting the kidneys against disease. However, it’s also used in testicular cancer patients

Quercetin – A study in the April 2005 issue of ‘British Journal of Cancer’ stated a link between high cholesterol and an increases risk of testicular cancer. Found in foods like apples and berries, quercetin improves cholesterol levels in several vitro and animal studies, although human trials were lacking. Quercetin has also exhibited an ability to affect sperm quality and viability, as noted in a study published in the “Asian Journal of Andrology” in May 2008, which could help testicular cancer patients on chemotherapy prevent infertility.

  • Take Vitamin D3 50,000-100,000 International Units a day for periods of 4 weeks at a time.
  • 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.
  • Take an Omega 3 supplement:

Krill oil

Fish oil

Cod liver oil

Vegetarian

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.

Here are some remedies that your practitioner may suggest:

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. 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.

Bergamot, chamomile, sandalwood, and tea tree oil are also under in treating cancers.

Use 4 drops of essential oil per 25ml of carrier oil.

To ensure positive results, always check that the essential oil is a 100% pure plant distillation and that it comes from a reputable source.

Homeopathic Medicine

Owing to the principles behind homeopathy it is essential you see a licensed practitioner to receive your own personalised prescription.  Find your closest Homeopath here

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.

Here are some remedies that your practitioner may suggest:

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

Exercise:

Yoga The physical postures and breathing exercises comprising the practice of yoga have long been proven by scientific research to promote feelings of relaxation while simultaneously strengthening the body. Research conducted since the 1970s has shown that regular yoga practice not only relieves stress, and stressful emotions such as anxiety and depression, but also improves blood pressure rates and overall cardiovascular health. Yoga is also effective for reducing pain, improving gastrointestinal and respiratory function, and for improving cognitive function and enhancing sight and hearing.

Note: If you are just beginning to explore yoga, it is recommended that you initially do so under the guidance of a trained yoga instructor who can guide you to become aware of the subtleties involved in each yoga posture as well as the corresponding method of breathing.

QigongIs a wonderful form of exercise, breath work and meditation to relieve stress and tension in the body.  See article section for more information about the art of qigong.
