Candida and Cancer: New Link or Old News

The causes of cancer seem to be as numerous as cancers themselves, but recent clinical research has demonstrated a link between certain types of cancer and the presence of fungus in the body. Candida abicans is one of the most common types of fungus (technically speaking, a yeast) that is present in small amounts in and on the human body. Under normal conditions, Candida cohabitates without causing us any problems. But when the environment is primed for it, Candida yeast can multiply and grow out of control.


Types Of Candida

The infection that results is known as candidiasis, and there are several different types:

  • Thrush – Candida yeast that spreads to the mouth and throat.
  • Genital Yeast Infection – Concentration of Candida in the genitals that affects three out of four women in their lifetime. Men can also get genital candida.
  • Diaper Rash from Yeast Infection – Candida that spreads under wet or soiled diapers.
  • Invasive Candida – Candida yeast that enters the bloodstream (often through medical devices).

Common Symptoms

Common symptoms associated with an overabundance of Candida include the aforementioned yeast and fungal infections across and within the body, but also extend to include:

  • Chronic Fatigue
  • Brain Fog
  • Digestive Issues
  • Food Allergy/Intolerance
  • Sinus Infections
  • Joint Pain
  • Low Mood
  • Weakened Immune System

Causes Of Candida

So, what is it then that causes Candida abicans to suddenly run amok and terrorize our physiology and immune system? Keep in mind that Candida lives in the digestive tract of most people already – candidiasis is an abnormal, excess growth of Candida. There are several primary and secondary contributors to an excess of Candida in the body:

  • High-Sugar Diet
  • Antibiotics
  • Chronic Stress
  • Contraceptive Pill
  • Dental Mercury
  • Chemical Exposure
  • Diabetes

3 Primary Causes Of Candida

We’ll discuss the first three, primary causes of candidiasis in people. Antibiotics are effective at killing harmful bacteria that cause infection in the body; the problem is that oftentimes the antibiotic will wipe out many of the beneficial bacteria that live in your gut and aid in proper digestion and food processing. Chronic psychological stress is another major factor that contributes to Candida.

Secondly, when under stress, the body releases a hormone known as cortisol which depresses the immune system and raises blood sugar levels. The Candida yeast will then seize this opportunity to feed on the extra sugar and multiply, while the immune system has become too weak to resist its spread.

This brings us to the third primary cause of Candida overgrowth: a high-sugar diet. Candida albicans is a yeast, and yeasts thrive by consuming carbon-based molecule chains. What this translates to for us is that Candida feeds on carbohydrates like glucose and fructose – simple sugars. The modern diet is loaded with simple carbohydrates from processed foods and beverages like sugar, flower, white breads, and alcohol. These simple sugars are easy for Candida to break down and so a sustained high-sugar, high-processed food diet like many people eat may essentially provide a non-stop buffet for Candida to flourish and spread.


Credible Scientific Studies

A 2011 study[LINK] (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21513811) published in the journal Fungal Genetics and Biology looked to examine what exactly is going on metabolically when Candida gets out of control. The research noted that Candida is a polymorphic fungus, which means that it is able to morph from its single-celled yeast form to a larger, filamentous form. It is when Candida grows into these long filaments that it is able to lodge into the intestinal lining and disrupt our gut ecology.

Dr. T.L. Han and his team were able to reconstruct the central carbon metabolism of C. abicans, showing that the presence of sugars like glucose leads to dimorphic transition into a virulent form of the fungus. Moreover, this sugar metabolism process leads to an increase in quorum sensing molecules that regulate gene expression. This means that the more glucose present, the more that Candida is able to grow and increase its gene expression within the body.

This information was supported by another study[LINK] (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1595344/) published in Eukaryotic Cell. This study determined the presence within C. abicans of a glucose sensor gene called HGT4. High levels of glucose in the body cause expression of this HGT4 gene, which leads to filament growth and eventually the virulent form of Candida.


Percentage Of Cancer Patients Who Also Have Candida

We know that candidiasis is an infection caused by an overgrowth of Candida. Numerous studies have shown a correlation between cancer and the presence of Candida in 79 to 97 percent of cases. A study[LINK] (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24963692) from Critical Reviews in Mcirobiology provides findings that show Candida capable of promoting cancer through carcinogenic byproducts, and the triggering of inflammation as well as growth of tumor cells.

Dr. Tullio Simoncini, author of the book Cancer Is A Fungus, argues that Candida actually appears in 97 to 98 percent of cancer cases, and that it is Candida itself that causes cancer and not the other way around, as traditional Western medicine has assumed. As the Candida fungus invades various parts of our anatomy, the affected organs attempt to encyst, or encapsulate, the invasive fungus with hyper-production of cells. Dr. Simoncini maintains that this over-production of cellular tissue in response to Candida is what leads to cancerous tumor growth.

Dr. Simoncini’s holistic approach to cancer treatment has been ignored and even ridiculed by the ‘official’ stance on oncology. He has developed a pioneering yet simple method to treat all forms of cancer in his patients – sodium bicarbonate or baking soda (NaHCO3). The alkalinity of the NaHCO3 applied directly to a tumor site changes the acidic pH rapidly, killing the Candida yeast before it has a chance to adapt. After a regimen of sodium bicarbonate directly applied to the tumor-afflicted area, many of Dr. Simoncini’s patients recovered from their cancers – even in cases where traditional oncology had given up.


What You Can Naturally Do About Candida

Aside from this groundbreaking clinical work, there are a host of natural options and remedies available to treat and rid the body of Candida. The first step in clearing out your Candida is to starve it of the food it loves – namely simple sugars and carbohydrates. Avoid processed foods with high sugar content and try to consume an organic, free-range diet that is rich in healthy fats and proteins as well as complex carbohydrates from vegetables and legumes. Ingesting cultured and fermented foods and beverages can introduce healthy probiotics to help rebalance your gut biology.

Since Candida is a fungus, we can look to naturally antifungal foods and herbs for help in cleansing our system.  Naturally antifungal foods include:

  • Apple cider vinegar
  • Cayenne pepper
  • Cinnamon
  • Coconut oil
  • Garlic
  • Green tea
  • Lemon/lime juice
  • Olive oil
  • Turmeric (curcumin)

Herbs and plant components with antifungal properties include:

  • Astragalus
  • Cloves
  • Calendula
  • Echinacea
  • Ginger
  • Grapefruit seed extract
  • Lavender
  • Licorice root
  • Rosemary
  • Usnea

Don’t Forget To Address Your  Leaky Gut

For internal gut issues with Candida, you want to be ingesting these available food options. Make a healthy antifungal salad dressing using olive oil and either apple cider vinegar or lemon/lime juice. Consider taking a ‘shot’ of cider vinegar or lemon juice during the day. Use coconut oil and olive oil to cook and prepare food dishes rather than corn, canola or vegetable oil. Get a healthy dose of cayenne pepper, cinnamon and turmeric by adding these to your food or consuming them in capsule form from a certified supplier. Cook with extra garlic, or even better, chop it up and eat it fresh (great with tomatoes!). Drink green tea or take an extract in capsule form.

All of these antifungal herbs are available as dietary supplement capsules that you can incorporate into a daily and weekly fungus fighting regimen. Nowadays it is common to find these herbal remedies also available in liquid form from retailers. Liquid herbal extracts are most commonly sold as glycerites, which use vegetable glycerin as the means of extraction. While glycerites are still quite effective, they are not nearly as potent as alcohol tinctures which use up to 95% alcohol (grain or cane) as a means of extraction. Higher alcohol percentages are able to maximally extract the medicinal constituents from herbs, and this results in the most robust and concentrated medicinal profiles.

Important Note: Most Candida sufferers have an underlying root cause for their affliction. That is to say they suffer from “Leaky Gut”.

Leaky gut occurs when the inner lining of the gut gets chronically inflamed, which results to the nutrients not being absorbed properly. Apart from that, small fissures appear in the membrane which lines the intestinal tract, allowing harmful toxins, bacteria and partially digested food particles to slip out of the gut and into the bloodstream, which the body’s immune system sees as foreign invaders. When these foreign invaders are detected, the white blood cells quickly rush towards them in an attempt to surround the invading particles and a kind of systemic inflammation ensues.

To fix leaky gut you should be taking collagen supplements. 


Tinctures For Candida

To treat your Candida, incorporate a rotating dose of organic tinctures for a diversified approach that never gives the invasive fungus a chance to rest and infest. Take 3 droppers mixed with water in the morning and before bed. Find out how to make your own potent alcohol tinctures[LINK] (https://blog.mountainroseherbs.com/guide-tinctures-extracts) You can also brew a cleansing tea blend from any of these herbs. We recommend a soothing and aromatic combination of Calendula, Echinacea, Lavender, and Licorice Root.

Even when Candida flares up externally as a skin infection, you can still make use of these antifungal foods and herbs. Soak a paper towel in apple cider vinegar and make a compress to place over the affected area. Repeat several times throughout the day. You can also treat Candida topically with coconut oil and olive oil. The antifungal herbs mentioned work incredibly well infused into healing oils and curative salves that you can easily spread over the infected area. Purchase from a reputable herbal retailer or learn to make your own[LINK] (https://theherbalacademy.com/how-to-make-a-healing-salve/). You can even create a poultice from any blend of these herbs.


Ending Note

As we progress into an increasingly modern and technological world, the fields of healthcare and medicine continue to break new ground, yet have also found themselves turning back to older systems of health and wellness for answers. Classical Western medicine has positioned itself at the cutting edge of surgical intervention, trauma care and treatment of acute, life-threatening infection and disease. Despite these advancements, a lack of understanding of the full spectrum of causal factors for conditions like cancer has led patients and some medical professionals to seek alternative options for treatment. We’ve seen how Candida and candidiasis can be managed and treated through diet and herbal remediation. Perhaps it is time once again to pay homage to the storied herbal medicine traditions of the East and West, and consider a holistic approach to our health and wellness.

How Can I Pay For Effective Cancer Treatment With No Insurance In 9 Daily Steps?

First thing, congratulations you’re actually a very lucky person if you can’t afford conventional cancer treatment. Why you ask? Because most people die from the conventional treatment not the cancer itself.  Insurance pays for poison (Chemotherapy) and you can’t poison yourself into a state of good health.

I’m not saying that chemotherapy doesn’t work. In fact it does work at killing cancer, but it’s also trying to kill you as well. You have to survive chemotherapy in order to become a cancer survivor.  That being said…this article is about how you can possibly survive cancer by using natural cancer treatments with little money out of pocket.

What is working

The good news is natural treatments have been found to work for many cancer patients, and most of them are cheap compared to the “out of pocket” cost of doing chemotherapy, radiation, or surgery. Not every natural treatment is going to work for you because you are unique. Your exact genetics don’t exist anywhere else in the world. Therefore, you’ll have no choice but to do some experimenting to see what will work best for you.


Step 1: Stop Feeding Your Cancer

If you want to beat the enemy you have to stop feeding it. SUGAR…it’s making you weak and strengthening your cancer.  You must go on a sugar fast for probably 8 months. No sugar and no starches. PERIOD! You can’t have any of it because it’s used as fuel for cancer cells. The only sugar you should be taking in should come from the carrots and beets you juice. Which leads us to step number 2.

Important note: Never eat GMO’s. A cancer cell is technically a genetically altered cell. Think about that for a quick second. This means most of the products in grocery stores are genetically modified (altered). The logical outcome will most likely be, more people will get cancer in the years to come who eat GMOs. So, go natural and stay away from any product, supplement, vegetable, or meat that is given GMOs to eat or has been directly modified.


Step 2: Veggies Are Your Buddy

It has been well documented that other cancer patients have used mass amounts of non-GMO carrots, and beets to overcome their cancer. This doesn’t guarantee success, but it’s a great place to start. It’s been said that it’ll take 5 lbs. of carrots a day, so you’ll need a way to juice it up. If you’re doing it right, your skin will turn orange. It’s temporary, so don’t worry keep going. We recommend a cold press juicer from 5 Star. It’ll cost about $500, give or take, but it’s worth it because if you use a blender it spins so fast it actually heats up the juice on a cellular level, enough to kill off a good portion of the cells. This means your juicer is working against you. You need all the help you can get, so go cold press. And this way you’ll get almost 100% of the juice out of your veggies.

A special note: turmeric and ginger are great to add to your daily juicing regime. Check out our website juicing recipes.


Step 3: I Can’t Live On Juice Alone

Juicing day in and day out for months on end is going to be tough, but you can cheat. Thank God, right? It’s been proven that wild salmon is the “go-to” meat for cancer patients. So, get plenty of wild salmon into your daily diet.  That’s about all the other food you should be eating. I never said it would be easy, but it’s going to be worth it when you’ve beat all the odds and become a cancer survivor.


Step 4: Your Gut Could Be The Problem

Approximately 80% of your body’s immune system is wrapped around your large intestine. This makes total sense once you think about it. After food and drink leave your stomach it goes through your intestines where nutrients move through the intestinal walls into your blood stream. Your body has your immune system right there on site in order to handle all the bad things you may be eating and drinking.

In today’s environment it doesn’t take too much to get your gut off track which could allow environmental toxins into your blood stream; possibly allowing cancer to take a hold of your body. If you fix your intestinal walls you could start winning your immune system back. Every healthy person has a properly functioning immune system. Experts tell us that to repair your gut you’ll need a daily regiment of collagen, and pro-biotics. You have to put good into your body in order to get good out of it. Remember after the cancer is gone you’ll still need a great pro-biotic on a daily basis. It’s just a part of life.

It’s our goal to sell top quality collagen right here on our website, but for today you can go to your local health food store or check out Amazon.


Step 5: Vitamin C Is The Key

It’s been well documented that Vitamin C is a cancer killer, but it’s going to take a lot of it. We went to the VitaminCFoundation.org to find out just how much it could take to win the fight against cancer. According to them it could take up to 100,000 Mg per day. Wow, that’s a lot of Vitamin C!

It’s not cut and dry either. Each person’s body is different. Therefore, they recommend you find your personal Vitamin C threshold by increasing your daily intake of Vitamin C by 5,000 Mg increments per day until you hit your personal diarrhea threshold. This means when your body has had enough Vitamin C you’ll be headed to the bathroom for a while. When this happens, simply back off your daily

intake to where you are under your personal diarrhea threshold and you’ll be fighting cancer in a huge way. We use High Dose Vitamin C powder we got on Amazon. We’ve chosen different brands over time. What’s most important is to go NON-GMO.

More good news about Vitamin C…theoretically you can use Vitamin C to measure your success against cancer. In other words, as your cancer lessens you should need less Vitamin C and your personal Vitamin C diarrhea threshold will go down in Mg.  Theoretically when you take 12,000 Mg of Vitamin C in one day and you get diarrhea  you may have won your fight against cancer. Isn’t that AWESOME?


Step 6 It’s Time To Get Oily

It’s been said many times for thousands of years, “everything we need to fight every disease is already on the earth”. This means nature has always had the answers to fight disease. You simply need all the right plants, herbs, and spices in your daily regime. Essential oils are those plants, herbs, and spices. Essential oils are the best of what nature has to offer. Here are the top 5 cancer fighting essential oils according to the experts:

  1. Clary Sage
  2. Frankincense
  3. Lavender
  4. Lemongrass
  5. Myrrh

We have found that Young Living provided the best quality essential oils on the planet. We wanted the best for us and our families. This is why we became YL distributors. You can get the Young Living App on your phone and it’ll tell you how to take these essential oils. Some can be ingested through capsules you make at home, some are used in aromatherapy, and some are used topically. You’ll probably find yourself using all 3 methods on a daily basis.


Step 7: Get Alkaline

According to the experts, every cancer patient has an acidic body because cancer creates acid. Changing your pH balance won’t make you a cancer survivor all by itself, but you need to get alkaline veggies into your body because it’s been shown to slow cancer and keep it from spreading. You can run the following veggies through your juicer. Here is a list of the top alkaline foods:

  • Wheatgrass
  • Spinach
  • Kale
  • Swiss Chard
  • Cucumbers

Drinking wheat-grass tastes like mowing your lawn with your mouth, but the good news is you can juice it into a shot and add some lemon. It’s much easier to take down that way.

Check out juice blogs to get great recipes on CancerFreeLiving.com


Step 8: It’s Time To Turn Up The Heat

You can’t beat a great fever. Experts have shared with us that heat can sensitize and even kill most cancer cells across the board. Your internal body temperature will have to be above 104 degrees Fahrenheit for 40 minutes each session, and you’ll need to keep this routine up until your cancer is gone. This excludes brain cancer of course. You can use a variety of machines to help you accomplish this. We’ve heard some people chose to get a personal “far infrared sauna” and we’ve heard of people duct taping heating pads around their waist every day and turning up the heat. Personally, the sauna is better for an additional reason…it detoxifies you, and if you have cancer, you have toxins. According to the experts, it all works though!


Step 9: You Need To Clean Your House

It’s amazing how many products have cancer causing toxins in them these days. We cleaned house on ourselves and found cancer causing toxins in the following products:

  • Hand soap
  • Toothpaste
  • Shampoo
  • Conditioner
  • Hair Spray
  • Make up
  • Deodorant
  • Cologne
  • Perfume
  • Sun block
  • Candles
  • Scented Bathroom Spray
  • Dish Soap
  • Dishwashing Detergent
  • Laundry Detergent

And the list kept going. Is it any wonder why we get cancer? Simply put, there is no good reason for companies to willfully put toxins in our household goods.

It is our goal to sell on our website “all natural” alternative products to replace these household killers. But for today we recommend you talk to your local health food store and/or Amazon can deliver just about everything these days.


An Ending Note

I never said it would be free, but the experts have proven all of the above works at creating a healthy body, and healthy people don’t have cancer. It’s rather inexpensive considering the alternative and insurance will never pay for any of things listed above.

God bless you in your endeavor to become a cancer survivor. Our website CancerFreeLiving.com will be a continued valuable resource to you and your family for many years to come, so don’t be afraid to keep coming back to us and please share us with your family and friends.


If you are stage-3 or stage-4

It’s highly advised that you don’t try to play your own doctor. You really need a skilled physician that knows how to handle your situation. Check out our amazing stage-4 survival story that inspired this website, and get a recommendation to the best natural cancer clinic on the planet.

What Does Radiation Do In Cancer Patients?

Radiation therapy is normally recommended for patients who have been diagnosed with cancer. Radiation therapy uses high-energy radiation to shrink or kill cancer cells and tumors. Some of the types of radiation for cancer treatment include the use of x-rays and gamma rays. The radiation can be delivered by a device externally, such as a beam of radiation, or it may come from a radioactive material that’s placed inside the body, close to the cancer cells, known as internal radiation therapy or ‘Brachytherapy.’ A systemic radiation therapy method uses a substance called radioactive iodine that can reach the cancer cells via the bloodstream. Almost half of all cancer patients undergo radiation therapy during the course of their cancer treatment.

How does Radiation Therapy Kill Cancer Cells?

Radiation therapy kills cancerous cells by damaging the molecules that are inside the cells that carry genetic information (DNA) and pass it from one generation to the next when the cells split. Radiation therapy can either damage the DNA of the cells or create charged particles within the cells themselves which in turn, damage the DNA of the cell. Once the DNA of the cancer cells have been damaged beyond repair, the cell is unable to duplicate itself and spread throughout the body. These cancer cells eventually die and are broken down by the body’s natural processes.

Doctors often recommend radiation therapy to patients as a means to either cure the cancerous tumor or prevent the recurrence of the cancer, or both. Radiation therapy is normally used as the single mode of cancer treatment or in combination with other cancer treatment methods. Radiation therapy is also sometimes given with palliative intent, which means it’s not intended to cure the patient of their cancer, but rather, relive the symptoms of the cancer, or reduce the suffering that’s caused by the cancer.


Important Note To Remember

Radiation can’t cure cancer. It may kill cancer, but radiation causes cancer. Therefore it shouldn’t be classified as a cure.


Some examples of Palliative therapy include:

  • Radiation given to shrink a tumor near the esophagus.
  • Radiation given to shrink a tumor that is pressing on the spine or growing within a bone.
  • Radiation given to the brain to shrink tumors formed from cancer cells that have spread to the brain from other parts of the body.

Factors Determining the Type of Radiation Therapy

The type of radiation therapy that’s prescribed for a cancer patient usually depends on a number of factors, including:

  • The type of cancer and its size.
  • The location of the cancerous tumor.
  • The involvement of other types of cancer treatment.
  • How far within the body does the radiation have to travel?
  • How close the cancer is to normal tissues?
  • Other factors include the age and medical history of the patient.

The Down Side of Radiation Therapy

While radiation therapy can help reduce the number of cancer cells within the body of a cancer patient, on the flip side is also leads to possible side effects, and direct effects such as: radiation creates cancer. As well as radiation therapy can damage normal cells in the process, which is a side effect that doctors take into consideration while planning the course of action for giving the patient radiation therapy.


What You Can Possibly Do To Avoid Radiation:

You’re body is designed to be well if you put forth the effort and you must have enough life left in your body to accept the good things you’re putting into it.  If you’re one of the lucky people and you are stage-1 or stage-2 you a lot more options.

Experts recommend the following:

What Does Chemotherapy Do In Cancer Patients?

Chemotherapy works by killing cancerous cells in patients diagnosed with cancer. While most people know of chemotherapy as a drug that can treat cancer, patients can be given chemotherapy as tablets, intravenous infusion or by injection. Since the chemotherapy drugs can circulate throughout the body, they can reach the cancer cells almost anywhere within the body to treat the cancer.


How Does Chemo Work?

Chemotherapy also known as ‘chemo’ works by killing those cells that are in the process of splitting in two. The tissues in the human body are made up from billions of cells. The cells aren’t designed to divide and multiply much, unless only in the case of any damage. When the cells divide, they split in two identical cells, then four, then eight, and so on. When a patient has cancer, these cells continue to divide until there is a large mass of cells which then fuse, or lump together, leading to a tumor. In this way, chemotherapy is used to minimize the cells from dividing and spreading throughout the body.

Some of the drugs that are used during chemotherapy damage the part that’s responsible for dividing the cell called the nucleus, which is a dark blob in the center of each cell, while others aim to interrupt the chemical processes that go into the division of the cells. Some of the drugs used in chemotherapy damage the cells while splitting, while others damage the cells while the cell is making copies of all the genes in preparation for a split. Chemotherapy is advised for patients who have been diagnosed with cancer since it does not affect the normal cells that are dormant, or are not dividing like the cancerous cells. Usually, there is a combination of drugs that are used in chemotherapy.


Chemotherapy is designed to attack “Rapidly Dividing Cells”. This is why chemo makes patients’ hair falls out.


Chances of being Cured by Chemo

The chances of a patient with cancer being cured by the use of chemotherapy mainly depends on the type of cancer they have been diagnosed with. Some of the examples of chemotherapy curing cancers are usually with Hodgkin lymphoma and testicular cancer. Many patients who have been diagnosed with breast cancer or bowel cancer are given chemotherapy after surgery. In many cases, the use of chemotherapy alone is not enough to cure or treat the cancer, and is often used in combination with other drugs during treatment.

In certain cancers, where a cure is unlikely, the doctor may suggest chemotherapy to shrink the tumor or help relieve the symptoms. Controlling the cancer in this way can lead to longer life of the cancer patient or even help put it into remission.

Important Note: No one has ever been put in a great state of health by using poison. Chemotherapy is poison.


Conventional Oncology likes to use the word “Cured” when it’s not true. The correct term is NO EVIDENCE OF DISEASE. This does not mean a person is cured.


What does Remission Mean?

Doctors oftentimes use the word ‘remission’ when discussing cancer. This normally means, after treatment there have been no signs of the cancer. There are two types of remission. The first type is called ‘complete remission’ which means that the cancer cannot be detected by scans, blood tests and x-rays etc. The second type of remission is called ‘partial remission’ which means that the treatment has been successful in killing many of the cancer cells, but not all of them. In these cases, the cancer shrinks in size, but can still be seen. Another term which is used by doctors is ‘stable cancer’ meaning that the cancer has remained the same size.

Chemotherapy sometimes causes pain, which is why palliative care or supportive care is an important part of the cancer treatment.


What Happens To Chemotherapy Patients Years After Treatment

Chemotherapy has a tendency to create CAD (Coronary Artery Disease) because it has a tendency to shrink the diameter of veins and arteries. If you have or plan to use Chemotherapy it’s highly advised that you have a strategy to keep your arteries extremely clean as they are likely to shrink over time. See our post about CAD. 


What You Can Do To Avoid Chemotherapy

Understanding Prostate Cancer

One in 7 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime. Prostate cancer isn’t just an old man’s disease, which is why you need to be aware of the symptoms and risks of developing prostate cancer. What’s even more concerning is that there are nearly three million cases of prostate cancer detected each year, in the US alone.

 


Understanding Prostate Cancer

The prostate gland is part of the male reproductive system. Prostate cancer refers to cancer of the cells of the prostate, which is a small gland in front of the rectum and just below the urinary tract (bladder). The prostate gland is responsible for producing some of the fluid in semen as well as urine control in men. It is the most common cancer found in men and can be treated if diagnosed early on. Since there are no clear symptoms, regular screening is the most effective way of detecting prostate cancer.


Symptoms of Prostate Cancer

Sadly, there are not may early warning signs of prostate cancer since the tumor usually grows very slowly, and does not push against anything to cause pain. This is the reason why many patients who discover they’ve got prostate cancer have had it for years without even knowing it. While this particular form of cancer may be silent, there are some indicators that a person may have prostate cancer, such as:

  • Weak or interrupted flow of urine
  • Pain in the rectum or feeling pain while urinating
  • Difficulty in having an erection or painful ejaculation
  • Pain in the lower back, hips, pelvis, or thighs
  • Difficulty starting or holding back urination
  • A decrease in the amount of fluid ejaculated
  • Blood in the urine or semen
  • A need to urinate frequently, especially at night

Causes of Prostate Cancer

While it is not clear what causes prostate cancer, doctors have narrowed down the cause to a few factors:

  • Age – The risk of developing prostate cancer increases as a person gets older.
  • Ethnic Group – This form of cancer is more prevalent among men from Asian, African and African-Caribbean descent.
  • Family History – This factor plays a big part in a person getting diagnosed with prostate cancer. For instance, having a father or big brother who has been diagnosed with prostate cancer significantly increases your chances of getting prostate cancer in your lifetime.
  • Obesity – Studies have suggested that there is a link between your waistline and prostate cancer, which is why regular exercise is recommended for men, especially after they’ve reached a certain age.
  • Diet –Studies have also confirmed the link between a person’s diet and prostate cancer. Men who have diets high in calcium are at a greater risk of getting prostate cancer according to some research.

How Does Prostate Cancer Form?

Prostate cancer could be caused by mutations in the genetic material or DNA of an individual, which leads to the abnormal increase of cancerous cells. These increases in the cell numbers causes the prostate to grow, albeit slowly, which is one of the reasons why it is difficult to diagnose prostate cancer as compared to other cancers.


Complications of Prostate Cancer

The complications of developing prostate cancer normally include it spreading to other organs such as the bladder, or travelling through the blood stream to other parts of the body. The good news is, prostate cancer does respond to treatment even if it has spread through other parts of the body. Another complication that arises with prostate cancer is that of erectile dysfunction, which is due to the fact that treatment for prostate cancer usually involves radiation and hormone therapy, along with surgery. That said, there are surgeries that are available for erectile dysfunction due to cancer treatment.


What You Can Naturally Do About Prostate Cancer

You’re body is designed to be well if you put forth the effort and you must have enough life left in your body to accept the good things you’re putting into it.  If you’re one of the lucky people and you are stage-1 or stage-2 you a lot more options.

Experts recommend the following:

Most Common Cancer Symptoms

The most worrying fact about cancer symptoms isn’t the presence of cancer itself, but the fact that more people tend to brush off the symptoms as “non-consequential” and therefore not warranting a visit to the doctors. This could lead to some serious consequences. To be sure you’re not one of those people, here are some of the most common cancer symptoms to look out for.


Change in the Appearance of a Mole

Moles are nothing to worry about, usually. But, a sudden change in the appearance of a mole could warrant a visit to the doctor. Those who stay outdoors a lot, either as an occupation or for recreational activities, need to take any unusual changes in the color, shape or texture of an existing mole seriously and visit their doctor to find out if it’s the cancer.


A Cough that Doesn’t Go Away

Coughing.jpg

The common cold and flu is usually accompanied by a cough, but having a cough that won’t go away and persists for a long time could be a symptom of lung cancer, especially for those who smoke. Head and neck cancers are on the rise in young people due to heavy smoking and the increased rates of HPV virus.


An Unexplained Lump

Bump

The swelling up of lymph nodes in the neck during a cold is common. It means the body is fighting off a bug, but getting swollen lymph nodes in the neck, groin and armpit that won’t go away even after a few months that aren’t accompanied by the symptoms of lymphoma needs to be checked.


Changes in Bladder Habits

Your pee can often tell you more about your health than you know. Having to pee more often than usual can be a sign of prostate cancer. If you are experiencing unusual bladder movements, you will need to check up with a doctor.


Blood in Pee or Poo

The common cause of blood in poo is piles. But, it could also mean a sign of cancer. Seeing blood in urine should also not be taken lightly. Consulting your doctor will give you an idea of the possible causes, which is crucial since the early detection of any cancer increases the chances of being treated easily.


Changes in the Breasts

BreastSize

Lumps aren’t the only thing for women to watch out for. You also need to look for any sudden change in the shape, size or feel of a breast, including skin changes, or pain. Make sure the doctor knows if there’s fluid leaking from the nipple in a woman who isn’t pregnant.


A Sore that Won’t Heal

WoundWontHeal

The skin is able to repair itself very quickly. Normally, any damage to the skin heals within a few days. But, you should be concerned when a spot or sore does not heal within at least a month, even if it is painless.


Note To Remember

Cancer usually has no specific symptoms, which is why it’s important for people not to ignore any unusual signs that could lead to cancer. The reason why an early detection of any cancer is crucial because it could lead to a possible cure while the cancer is at an early stage.


What You Can Do About Cancer

Don’t panic if you’re given the news that you have cancer. There are many things you can do to help yourself overcome cancer such as:

Lymphoma: Causes, Symptoms, Complications

Non-Hodgkin lymphoma is one of the most prevalent types of cancer in the United States, accounting for around 4% of all cancers that are diagnosed in the country. According to the American Cancer Society, about 72,240 people have been diagnosed with this form of cancer in 2017. Here, we are going to take a closer look at lymphoma, its symptoms and causes

Understanding Lymphoma

Lymphoma is classified by the type of immune cells it affects. There are two main types of lymphoma, Hodgkin and non-Hodgkin. But, there are many sub-types which fall under these two main categories. Hodgkin lymphoma is identified by the presence of cells that are known as Reed-Sternberg cells while non-Hodgkin, which is the most common type of lymphoma, affects T and B cells and accounts for nearly 90% of all lymphoma cases in the US.

Symptoms of Lymphoma

The symptoms of lymphoma are similar to a viral disease such as the common cold, with the only difference being with lymphoma, the symptoms persists for longer.  There are also cases where the patient has not shown any symptoms at all, while other symptoms include a swelling of the lymph nodes in the neck, armpits, groin or abdomen. The swelling is painless, but can be painful if the enlarged area is pressed. Since the swelling of the lymph nodes can also occur during a cold, this often leads to a misdiagnosis. Other common symptoms of lymphoma include:

  • Weight loss
  • Loss of appetite
  • Itching Sensation
  • Persistent fatigue and unusual lack of energy
  • Pain in lymph nodes after drinking alcohol
  • Ongoing fever without any infection
  • Night sweats,chills

Causes of Lymphoma

Lymphoma occurs due to the uncontrolled buildup of white blood cells that live past their normal life cycle. Since the lymphatic tissue is connected through the body, it is possible for this type of cancer to spread from its original location to other parts of the body. In Hodgkin lymphoma, the cancer affects the lymph nodes one at a time, while in non-Hodgkin lymphoma, the cells affect disparate lymph nodes, sometimes skipping some nodes. The exact cause of lymphoma is still to be found.

How Lymphoma Forms

Lymphoma basically occurs when the white blood cells or lymphocytes that are present in the body gets out of control. They either do not die when they should or divide in an abnormal way. People who are diagnosed with lymphoma see an abnormal buildup of lymphocytes in the lymph nodes such as the groin, neck and armpits. But, lymphocytes can buildup in almost any part of the body. Lymphoma can also be extra-nodal, meaning it can start in an area outside the lymphatic system such as the bones, liver or lungs. The type of lymphoma a person is diagnosed with mainly depends on the location of the lymphoma and what part of the body is affected by it.

Complications of Lymphoma

Lymphoma can be diagnosed by a blood test or biopsies. Some of the complications leading to lymphoma include:

  • Age: Lymphoma usually occurs in people who are above 60.
  • Sex: Some types of lymphoma are more common in women than men.
  • Location: The location of where a person lives can also be a risk factor.
  • Exposure to Chemicals: Those who are exposed to chemicals or nuclear radiation are more at risk of developing lymphoma.
  • Infection: Certain bacterial and viral infections can also transform lymphocytes, increasing the risk of getting lymphoma.
  • Diet and body weight: Obesity has been reported as one of the causes of developing lymphoma, along with immunodeficiency.

Lung Cancer: How To Potentially Survive This Killer

Lung cancer, also known as lung carcinoma, is characterized by the emergence of a malignant lung tumor that may be caused by uncontrolled cell growth in the different tissues present in the human lungs.

If left unchecked, this disease can quickly proliferate well beyond the lung to various adjoining organs through a process known as metastasis.

Broadly defined, there are three different types of lung cancers that include the following:


Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC)

This is, by far and large, the most common type of lung cancer prevalent today. It has different sub-types that include the following

  • Adenocarcinoma
  • Squamous cell carcinoma and
  • Large cell carcinoma

Small cell lung cancer (SCLC)

This form of cancer is also sometimes referred to as ‘oat cell cancer.’ Currently, around ten to fifteen percent of all lung cancers are usually SCLC.

In this form of cancer, the cells tend to contain dense neurosecretory granules due to which, this tumor acquires an endocrine or paraneoplastic syndrome association.


Lung Carcinoid Tumors (LCTs)

The third type of lung cancer is known as ‘lung carcinoid tumors’ (also called lung carcinoids). However, this type of cancer is relatively uncommon amongst most people and LCTs also tend to grow a whole lot slower than the other more common lung cancer types

In order to understand lung cancer and why it occurs, let us study the lungs first.


The Lungs

The lungs are two large organs located in the chest region of the body and are roughly analogous to sponges. They help us breathe by absorbing oxygen and getting rid of carbon dioxide as we inhale and exhale.

Cancer effectively interferes with this ability by destroying the alveoli or small air sacs in the lung. As the cancer progresses and destroys healthy tissue, the lung and its surrounding organs cannot work properly, leading to disruption in their ability to perform their tasks. If left untreated, this disease can prove fatal indeed.

While lung cancer can strike anyone at any time, however, there are certain causative factors that can lead to cancer.

Some of them include the following

  • Smoking

This is one of the leading causes of lung cancer and medical research has consistently shown that smoking is one of the major causative agents for lung cancer.

  • Asbestos

Asbestos sheeting, when damaged, releases tiny particles into the atmosphere that when inhaled, can prove to be highly carcinogenic.

  • Air pollution

Currently, this is also a leading cause of lung cancer due to the fact that many cities in the world are perpetually enveloped in a pall of smog that consists of exhaust emissions from chemical plants and vehicles.


Symptoms of Lung Cancer

Some of the common symptoms of lung cancer include the following

  • Cough
  • Wheezing
  • Chest pain
  • Coughing up blood (in more advanced cases of the illness)
  • Shortness of breath (inability to inhale the required amount of oxygen)

Dichloroacetate Sodium (DCA): A Non-Toxic But Effective Cancer Killer

DCA (dichloroacetate) is a naturally occurring and also an inexpensive and simple compound that offers significant therapeutic value in the treatment of different diseases such as cancer. Contrary to popular layman opinion, DCA usage in the treatment of cancer is not a particularly new concept and it has been quite successfully used for decades now.


What really is DCA and exactly how does it work?

The cell is the basic building block of life and we humans have trillions of them in our bodies. But a cell is living matter and therefore, requires energy to function and grow. The same holds true for cancer cells as well.

In a nutshell, all our cells generate their own energy by breaking down sugar or glucose though a certain process that is known as the Krebs cycle. However, cancer cells develop the ability to effectively bypass this whole cycle and thereby produce a large amount of energy using a much simpler process.

DCA, or dichloroacetate, is similar in many respects to some of the chemicals that are directly involved in the entire Krebs cycle. This is precisely why adding dichloroacetate to different cancer cells essentially kick-starts the whole Krebs cycle. Once this happens, the cancer cells stop multiplying and quickly die out. The best part of the whole exercise is that DCA does not seem to affect healthy cells at all, but only the cancerous ones.

In fact, many medical researches that have been conducted recently have provided ample evidence of its efficacy and safety as a front-line cancer treatment. It can also be used as an adjunct medication and treatment for ongoing cancer care, especially amongst those patients who have drug-resistant and or highly advanced metastatic cancers.

The key reason why DCA is gaining increasing popularity is because it has succeeded to an extent, in solving one of the biggest challenges that oncologists and other cancer treatment specialists have to face and that is to search for chemicals that would selectively induce cancer cells to die but would not harm the surrounding healthy cells at all in any way.

DichloroacetateSodium2.jpg

Based on the innate mechanism of dichloroacetate’s proven abilities in both the lab as well as considerable clinical evidence, many oncologists have now commenced prescribing this medication due to the tremendous value it provides in cancer treatment.

It is easily able to fulfill that most novel of criteria, that is, a medicinal agent that kills cancer cells while leaving the surrounding healthy tissues largely intact.

The term ‘novel cancer agent’ applies to DCA chief because it does not directly kill the cancerous cells (unlike chemotherapy and other standard cancer treatments) but rather successfully alters the metabolic functions of those cells without damaging surrounding cells.

When we take the above qualities into consideration, we realize that the advent of the DCA era can revolutionize cancer treatments as we know them today.


As of today we don’t have a particular brand or supplier of DCA that we endorse, but you can purchase DCA on Amazon or health related retailers.

All You Need to Know About Breast Cancer

Few people realize that breast cancer is the most common type of cancer in American women, coming second only to skin cancer. In the United States, an estimated one in eight women stand the chance of developing breast cancer in their lifetime, making it something to be concerned about. Here, we’ll find out more about what is breast cancer and how is it formed.

Understanding your Breast Cancer

It’s important to note that there are different types of cancer. Based on your test results, the doctor can tell you what type of cancer you’ve got. They could also suggest a prognosis that will determine the outcome of the disease. The following are some of the questions that will help you understand more about your breast cancer:

  • When did the cancer start?
  • Is the cancer common?
  • What’s the stage of cancer?
  • Is it a fast or slow growing cancer?
  • Are there any other tests needed?
  • Is it possible for the tests to be wrong?
  • How likely is it that the treatment will make me cancer free?
  • Can I have a copy of the pathology report?

Symptoms of Breast Cancer

A person can develop breast cancer when the cells in their breast start to grow out of proportion. These cells then form a tumor which feels like a lump and can be detected by an x-ray. If the cells of the tumor grow further to invade surrounding tissues, the tumor is considered to be malignant. While men can also get breast cancer, it is almost entirely occurring in women. Some of the possible symptoms of breast cancer are as follows:

  • Swelling of all or part of a breast (even if no distinct lump is felt)
  • Skin irritation or dimpling, redness or thickening of the nipple or breast skin
  • Nipple retraction (turning inward)
  • Nipple discharge other than breast milk
  • Pain in the breast or nipple

Causes of Breast Cancer

One of the causes that may lead to breast cancer is the DNA. DNA changes that are passed on from parents can greatly increase a person’s risk of getting breast cancer. Other causes include lifestyle-related risk factors, such as what you eat, how much you exercise, and your weight.

How Breast Cancer Forms

Changes in the DNA can lead normal breast cells to turn cancerous. Breast cancers can also start from different parts of the breast, with most beginning from the ducts that carry milk to the nipples, called ductal cancer. Other breast cancers start from the glands that make breast milk, and called lobular cancer. Apart from these, there are many other types of breast cancers that are less common.

It is important here to note that not all lumps on the breast are malignant. Non-cancerous breast tumors are merely abnormal growths which are not considered life threatening. That said, these benign breast lumps may increase a woman’s risk of getting breast cancer in some cases.

Complications of Breast Cancer

Certain complications may arise while treating breast cancer. For instance, the use of chemotherapy drugs comes with a number of side effects. It is important to speak to your doctor if you are experiencing any side effects of the cancer treatment. Some of the common side effects of chemotherapy are infection, fatigue, bruising, bleeding, and sleep disturbances.


What can you do about it?

You’re body is designed to be well if you put forth the effort and you must have enough life left in your body to accept the good things you’re putting into it.  If you’re one of the lucky people and you are stage-1 or stage-2 you a lot more options.
