Understanding Cancer

We all have cancer cells in our bodies. Cancer begins as a single abnormal cell that begins to mutate and multiply out of control. Groups of cells form tumors and invade healthy tissue. If undtected, the cells multiply and spread to other areas of the body. The agents that cause cancer are called carcinogens, because they promote the growth of cancerous cells. Cancer is caused by external carcinogens, like chemicals, radiation, and viruses, as well as internal factors, like hormones, immune conditions, and inherited mutations.

Cancer cannot live in a oxygenated, acid free enviroment. I'm not talking about getting more oxygen into the blood. This is at the cellular level that you must oxygenate. You must get more oxygen into the cell.

What happens is when your blood has eccess acid in it, the blood STORES the excess acid in the cells itself until it can process the acid left in the blood. When the cell fill with acid there isn't any room for oxygen in the cell. When the oxygen level is low enough one or more of the cancer cells begin to mutate and multiple. If you don't have enough antioxidants to get rid of the extra cancer cells being producted then you get lumps or tumors of excess cancer cells that take over more healthy cells.

You must get your PH to around 7 on the PH scale.
Raw, unfiltered Raw, unfiltered Apple Cinder Vinegar is just 1 thing you can do to raise your PH and get that acid level down.

Below are more cancer preventatives

Cancers of the stomach, liver, lungs, breast, prostate, skin, pancreas and others account for one out of every four deaths, ranking the disease as the second leading killer in this country. It is not hard to understand why, for most Americans, cancer is one of the most feared diseases. Nearly everyone knows someone who has had or has cancer.

The good news is that medical research has also shown that 80 percent of the causes of cancer have been identified and are preventable. Some of these factors include smoking, drinking, exercise, and diet. Research has also identified certain vitamins, herbs, and supplements that act to inhibit cancer. This research has propelled people seeking to prevent cancer, and to prevent the spread of cancer, to turn towards alternative medicine to ward off cancer.

Studies have also indicated that eating fatty foods, drinking alcohol and smoking regularly increases the likelihood of cancer. The evidence compiled so far suggests that about one-third of the 500,000 cancer deaths that occur in this country each year are due to dietary factors. Another third is due to cigarette smoking.

Fatty foods, alchohol and smoking act as promoters, helping abnormal cells to grow more quickly. Fatty foods are increasingly linked to increasing the risk of breast and colon cancer. Excessive alcohol has also been linked to increasing the risk for breast, mouth, pharynx, and esophagus cancer. If one is a smoker, the risks are multilplied.

Because the symptoms of cancer often mirror other illnesses, the symptoms of cancer may go undetected for a long time. Internal cancers, like colon cancer, are also difficult to detect early because symptoms often don't begin to surface until the cancer has progressed, and often spread. Because of this, the American Cancer Society has established recommendations to detect cancer early. Early detection examinations can help save lives and reduce suffering from most forms of cancer. Some of these cancers can be detected by self-examinations [breast examinations], physical examinations by a health professionals [skin cancer], or by x-rays and blood tests.

Symptoms of cancer will manifest in the organ of the body effected by the growth, and can result in pain and discomfort, or physical abnormality, as is the case with breast and skin cancer.

The most conventional methods for treating cancer are chemotherapy, surgery and radiation. Surgery is the oldest form of treatment for cancer. About 60 percent of people with cancer have had some type of operation.

Chemotherapy is the use of medicines and drugs to treat cancer. Systematic chemotherapy uses anti-cancer drugs that are usually given into a vein or mouth. These drugs enter the bloodstream and reach all the areas of the body.

Radiation therapy is one of the oldest, cost effective cancer therapies. From the time of the discovery of x-rays by William Roentgen and radioactivity by Marie and Pierre Curie, about a century ago, there have been efforts to use radiation to treat cancers. Advances in technology and a better understanding of how radiation works in the body have made radiation therapy a significant part of cancer treatment. It is estimated that 50-60% of all people with cancer will receive radiation at some point during their cancer treatment.

Research has also identified vitamins, minerals, herbs, and vitamins that will act to prevent, or prevent the spread of cancer.

The growing trend of alternative medicine in fighting cancer has been well-documented by medical doctors. What they have found is that some vitamins, minerals, herbs and supplements actually work as inhibitors, preventing abnormal cells from growing. Unlike surgery and chemotherapy, these natural remedies have no deleterious side effects.

 

Vitamin A has cytotoxic effects and may induce differentiation and apoptosis, as sell as having other potential anticancer effects. This approach is dose dependent.

Carotenoids the pigment that give fruits and vegetables its dark green and yellow color, has been shown to prevent cancer.

Beta-Carotene present in yellow and green vegetables, helps protect against lung cancer and my help prevent cancers of the bladder, mouth, larynx, esophagus, breast and others.

Vitamin C may also lower the risks for cancers of the esophagus and stomach. Vitamin C acts as an antioxidant, neutralizing cancer-causing chemicals that form in the body. It also blocks the conversion of nitrates to cancer-causing nitrosamines in the stomach.

Vitamin E is also touted as an anti-oxidant that prevents cells from damage by free radicals and fights off cancer.

Selenium has been found to have the same antioxidant effects as Vitamin C and Beta-Carotene.

Vitamin B has also been found to have this effect.

Ginseng has been found in many studies to inhibit the formation of tumors. This research has been very successful in animals, but conclusive human studies have not yet yielded concrete results.

Cat's Claw preliminary studies have also revealed that Cat's Claw has tumor inhibiting and immune-stimulating properties.

Garlic is toxic to some tumor cells. The pungent flavor from garlic detoxifies potential carcinogens. Garlic extract has slowed the growth of breast, skin, and colon cancers in mice.

Vitamin D3 may inhibit tumor growth, angiogenesis, and metastasis according to animal studies:
Must be careful of oversupplementation.

Omega-3 fatty acids: although omega-6 fatty acids may promote tumor progression in a number of ways, omega-3 fatty acids have a well established role in cancer management. Dozens of animal studies suggest that they inhibit tumor growth and metastasis, inhibit cachexia, and may increase the effectiveness of some chemotherapy drugs

Flavonoids or bioflavonoids contained in a wide range of medicinal and food plants. These include flavones (luteolin, apigenin), isoflavones (daidzein, genistein), flavonols (quercetin, kaempferol), flavanols (tea catechins), and anthocyandins-proanthcyanidins. The various compounds may have antioxidant, estrogenic, antiestrogenic, antimetastatic, and cytotoxic effects. Doses vary according to substances used

Amino Acids
Glutathione a critical amino acid that acts as an intracellular antioxidant and detoxifying agent. Low levels of glutathione are associated with increased cancer risk, impaired detoxification, and suppressed immunity.
Note: supplementing glutathione does not increase glutathione levels; however, administration of other antioxidants such as Vitamin E, Vitamin C, alpha-lipoic acid, and melatonin increases plasma and intracellular glutathione levels.
Arginine appears to enhance immune function and may inhibit the growth of some tumors.
Glutamine may inhibit tumor growth and cachexia and is useful for inhibiting the adverse effects of chemotherapy. It also increases glutathione levels.
Melatonin has cytotoxic effects against cancer cells, is an antioxidant, increases efficacy of chemotherapy drugs, and has other potential activity against cancer according to animal and human studies.
Inositol hexaphosphase (IP6, phytate) may beneficially alter signal transduction pathways, cell cycle regulatory genes, oncogenes, and tumor suppressor genes. In vitro and animal studies suggest a role in treatment of various carcinomas and leukemias.

Cartilage has been shown to antiangiogenic properties and has tissue inhibitors of metaloproteinases that inhibit tumor metastasis.
Note: controlled trials in humans and animals have shown no benefit from administering shark cartilage!"

Mushroom polysaccharides: Reishi Mushroom, Shiitake Mushroom, Turkey Tail, Maitake Mushroom, and other mushrooms have established immunostimulating and antitumor activity.

Curcumin a yellow pigment from the spice Turmeric: inhibits tumor growth and metatstasis, reduced the side effects of chemotherapy agents, as well as prevent cancer.

Green Tea may inhibit tumor growth, angiogenesis, and metatasis in addition to preventing cancer

Essiac Tea contains as combination of herbs with evidence of biologic activity including antitumor antioxidant, antiestrogenic, and immunostimulant actions, but no studies examining the formula in vitro or in vivo have been published.

Hoxsey Formula a combination of about nine herbs that each may have cytotoxic and immunostiumulation activity, No controlled trials addressing Hoxsey herbal formula therapy are available, however a case series following 39 patients with advanced cancers over 48 months reported that six were still alive. These survivors had lung, melanoma, recurrent bladder, and labial cancer (Austin , 1994)."

714-X (CDNC, Camphor Derivative Nitrogenated Compound). CDNC is derived from camphor, which is said to have increased affinity for cancer cells.

Hydrazine sulfate inhibits gluconeogenesis (when products of anaerobic metabolism are reconstituted into glucose), which is though by the developer of hydrazine to be a primary metabolic pathway for cancer cells. Hydrazine is thought to reduce cancer-related cachexia and to suppress cancer growth.

Escharotic salves have been used for centuries to destroy surface tumors. These salves generally contain caustic herbs, especially Bloodroot. The salves are difficult to use for animals because they are potentially dangerous if taken orally and it is not always possible to prevent the animal from licking itself.

Some Cancer Fighting Vegetables:


( This Combination is for Dogs and Humans)

Kale, Bok Choy, Cabbage, Brocolli, Cauliflower, Tomatoes, Brocolli Sprouts, Brussels Sprouts, Red Peppers, Radishes, Spinach and Garlic Cloves.
3 Generous portions are recommended each day and can be mixed ( 2 cups daily for large dogs ). Garlic is appoximately one clove per meal ( 1 clove for large dogs ).
