Natural Ways To Fight Cancer

Three Herbal Supplements That have Anticancer Activity There’s a protein in your body called “mTOR” which plays a vital role in how each cell thrives, divides, or dies. When this protein and associated metabolic pathway is turned on too high, it promotes cancer spreading. If we interfere with the mTOR pathway, it helps stop the formation of new blood vessels which feed the tumor. Read More

Are You Brushing Your Teeth with a Carcinogenic Endocrine Disruptor? – Some very damning evidence has come forward that the ingredient triclosan, originally registered as a pesticide but used in more modern times in a wide array of hygiene products, is an endocrine disruptor that may also cause other health issues like cancer, thyroid dysfunction, and infertility just to name a few.

Cleveland Clinic Starts Using Chinese Herbal Medicine – One of the leading academic and research hospitals in the country has just opened its first Chinese herbal therapy center, a breakthrough in the mainstream advancement of what is commonly referred to as “alternative,” or natural, medicine. The Cleveland Clinic in Ohio, according to new reports, will now treat patients for pain, indigestion, inflammation and many other chronic health issues using traditional Chinese remedies, affirming the legacy of this holistic approach to healing. Read More

Groundbreaking new research on the cancer-fighting potential of vitamin C has made the pages of the peer-reviewed journal Science Translational Medicine. A team of researchers from the University of Kansas reportedly tested the effects of vitamin C given in high doses intravenously on a group of human subjects and found that it effectively eradicates cancer cells while leaving healthy cells intact. Read More

Proponents call IP6 a “natural cancer fighter” and claim it slows or reverses the growth of various forms of cancer, including breast, colon, and prostate cancers. It is thought to be an antioxidant, a compound that blocks the action of free radicals, activated oxygen molecules that can damage cells. It may help to prevent the abnormal signals that tell a cancer cell to keep growing from reaching the cell’s nucleus. Some research shows IP6 slows abnormal cell division and may sometimes transform tumor cells into normal cells.  Read More

Research Reveals How Sugar CAUSES Cancer – Hospitals feed cancer patients sugar and high carbohydrate diets for a reason: they are abysmally ignorant of the role of nutrition in health and disease — hence their burgeoning growth and packed rooms. Read More

Cancer Meds Might Work Better At Night – Cancerous tumors may grow faster at night time, a new study has found. Israeli researchers found that cancer cells grow and spread around the body more quickly during sleep, because of the relationship between two receptors in cancer cells. They concluded that giving cancer treatment at night might be more effective than administering drugs in the day time. Read More

Neuroendocrine System Links

New Harvard Study Says Chemicals Cause Neurobehavioral Effects. This is a study regarding the damage chemicals are causing to our body. I included it because it looks like it might have some bearing on carcinoid cancer and neuroendocrine Cancer patients –Read More

Options for Neuroendocrine Tumors – I will probably circle back and post on this but, for now here is the link. Read More

NSE is a glycolytic enzyme that catalyzes the conversion of phosphoglycerate to phosphoenol pyruvate. It is present in neurons, neuroendocrine cells, and amine precursor uptake and decarboxylation (APUD) cells. Read More

The Dangers of BPA – BPA is known as a xenoestrogen; these estrogen mimics have the ability to bind to the same receptors that estrogen binds to and block the effects of natural estrogen. In this way they disrupt the body’s natural hormone balance. Once in place, BPA is very hard to remove from the body. Read More

BPA makes breast cancer tumors resistant to chemotherapy – Something as overlooked as bisphenol A could be a major player in most cancers. As a hormone disrupter, BPA inhibits the proper utilization of nutrients in important glands that regulate body functions. This can stress the cells. BPA is in many plastics and can leach from plastic bottles into the liquid, delivering BPA particles into the body. Read More


Those of a more conservative bent point to early signs of dramatically extended survival. But whoever you ask, an experimental treatment known as immuno-oncology (IO) is the most exciting development in cancer care for years. Read More

Patient’s Own Cells Deployed to Attack Aggressive Cancer -An article published in the journal Science describes the treatment of a 43-year-old woman with an advanced and deadly type of cancer that had spread from her bile duct to her liver and lungs, despite chemotherapy. Researchers at the National Cancer Institute sequenced the genome of her cancer and identified cells from her immune system that attacked a specific mutation in the malignant cells. Then they grew those immune cells in the laboratory and infused billions of them back into her bloodstream. Read More

Immunotherapy – Using the body’s own natural system for fighting disease, immunotherapy may also offer a lifeline for patients with certain types of cancer who have exhausted other treatment options. Read More

Tips on Cleansing Your Lymphatic System – Detoxification is the body’s natural, ongoing process of eliminating harmful toxins from the body so that it can function at its best. Toxins are man-made chemicals found in the air, water, food, household cleaners and cosmetic products as well as waste products produced by normal cellular activity. Read More

Sugar Lights Up Cancer Cells in MRI Scanners – The new technique, called “glucose chemical exchange saturation transfer” (glucoCEST), is based on the fact that to sustain their rapid growth, tumors consume much more glucose (a type of sugar) than normal healthy tissues. It can also distinguish tumor types with differing metabolic characteristics and pathophysiologies. Read More
