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.

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.

Stages of Cancer

Cancer is the one disease that has a major impact on society. Some of the most common cancers are; breast cancer, lung and bronchus cancer, leukemia, prostate cancer, bladder cancer, melanoma of the skin, thyroid cancer, kidney and renal pelvis cancer, colon and rectum cancer, endometrial cancer, and pancreatic cancer, and non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Cancer is the leading cause of death in the world with an estimated 14 million new cases being recorded and up to 8.2 million cancer related deaths occurring on average worldwide. While statistical data is not directly applicable to individual patients, the stages of cancer are. Here, we are going to go through the various stages of cancer and explain what is cancer staging.


Cancer Staging

Staging helps doctors describe the location of the cancer and whether it has spread to other parts of the body, or is affecting other organs of the body. There are various tests that are conducted to determine what stage a cancer is at, which helps doctors plan treatment and predict the chances of recovery. While each individual’s situation is going to be different when it comes to cancer, people with the same stage of cancer tend to have similar outlooks (prognosis) and are often times treated in the same way. For instance, cancer that’s at an early stage may be conventionally treated with radiation or surgery, while cancer that’s at a more advance stage is treated with chemotherapy., BUT we here at Cancer Free Living have seen far better results by using NATURAL ALTERNATIVE CANCER TREATMENTS. Looking at the stage the cancer is in, doctors are able to predict the right course of action. That said, all cancers are not (or cannot be) staged. For instance, leukemia is cancer of the blood cells and spreads throughout the body, which means it cannot be staged in the same way that cancers which form tumors are.

When determining the extent of spread of cancer, the first thing doctors look at is the size of the tumor and its location, and whether it has grown into other nearby areas of the body. Lymph nodes are small bean shaped collections of immune cells, which many types of cancers spread to before reaching other organs or parts of the body.


Steps for Cancer Staging

Doctors can use different types of tests to find out the stage of the cancer. These tests can also include a physical exam, x-rays, MRIs, CT scans, PET scans and ultrasound. These tests give the doctor an idea of where the cancer is in the body and how much it has spread. The patient may also have to take a biopsy, which involves the removal of a part of a tumor to find out if its cancerous. The tests such as x-rays, CT scans and biopsies that are taken are done during the clinical staging process. The pathologic stage relies on the results of those exams and tests, as well as what is learned about the cancer during surgery. While the clinical stage is a key part of deciding the best treatment to use, the pathological or “surgical stage” begins once the surgery has been performed.


Types of Staging Systems

There are two main types of staging systems for cancer – the TNM system and the number system. These two systems make it easier for doctors to describe the size and spread of the tumor, it also makes it easier for them to compare between the particular cancer stage and research studies, and follow standardized guidelines for treatment.


The TNM Staging System

The Union for Cancer Control (UICC) and the American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC) use the TNM classification system as a tool for describing the different stages of cancer. The TNM system is updated every 6 to 8 years as science advances and new medical discoveries are made.

In the TNM classification system, each cancer is assigned a specific letter or number which describes the tumor, note or metastases. For instance:

  • T stands for the original tumor.
  • N stands for the nodes and tells whether the cancer has spread to lymph nodes nearby
  • M stands for metastasis and tells whether a cancer has spread to any distant part(s) of the body.

Category ‘T’ provides information on the aspects of the original (primary) tumor, its size and how deeply it has grown into the organ that it started in.

The category ‘TX’ means the tumor cannot be measured.

The category ‘T0’ means that no evidence of a primary tumor has been found.

The category ‘Tis’ means that the cancerous cells are only growing on a superficial layer of the tissue, and is not growing deeper. This is also called ‘in situ’ cancer.

Any numbers that appear after the T such as T1, T2, T3, or T4 are used to describe the size of the tumor and the amount that it has spread to nearby tissues. The higher number indicates the size or amount the tumor has grown.

The category ‘N’ describes if a cancer has spread into any nearby lymph nodes.

The category ‘NX’ means that the lymph nodes are unable to be evaluated.

The category ‘N0’ means that the nearby lymph node does not contain any cancer cells.

The numbers that come after the N such as N1, N2 or N3 are used to describe the size, location and the number of lymph nodes that the cancer has infected. The higher the N number, the more the cancer has spread to any nearby lymph nodes.

The category ‘M’ tells whether a cancer has spread to distant areas of the body.

The category ‘M0’ is used to indicate that no distant spread of cancer was found.

The category ‘M1’ is used to indicate that the cancer has metastasized (spread) to distant parts of the body (organs or tissue)

Once the values for T, N, and M have been determined, they are combined to assign an overall stage.


The Number Staging System

The number staging system also uses the TNM system to divide the cancer into stages. Most cancer types have four stages that are numbered 1 to 4. The following is a brief summary of what the various stages of cancer means.

  • Stage 1 This normally means that the cancer is relatively small and contained within a single organ.
  • Stage 2 This means that the cancer has not begun to spread into the surrounding tissue, but the tumor does appear to be larger than at stage 1. This stage can also be an indicator that the cancer cells have spread into nearby lymph nodes.
  • Stage 3 This means that the cancer is larger and has started to spread to surrounding areas, including nearby lymph nodes.
  • Stage 4 At this stage the cancer has spread from where it begun to another part of the body. This stage is also known as metastatic or secondary cancer.

Doctors may also use the letters A, B and C to further divide the number categories (for example, stage 3B cervical cancer).


Other Cancer Staging Systems

The International Federation of Gynecologists and Obstetricians (FIGO) has a staging system for cancers of the female reproductive organs that is easy to convert to the TNM system.


Restaging

Restaging is a term used to describe doing tests to find the extent of the cancer after treatment had been carried out. After these tests a new stage could be assigned, which is denoted with a lower-case ‘r’ before the new stage to note that it’s different from the original stage at diagnosis. It is important to note that the originally diagnosed stage always remains the same.

The Link Between Chemotherapy And Coronary Artery Disease

We are a 10-year, stage-4, cancer survivor family. My mom, Peggy Sue overcame stage-4 cancer in 2007. She originally took chemotherapy but her life was spared by switching to natural cancer treatments. She has now lived long enough to have complications with the chemotherapy she took before choosing natural cancer treatments.

She started having blood pressure problems several years ago. When she went to the doctor he said: “chemotherapy?” Peggy said, “yes”. And the doctor said he sees this all the time when it comes to cancer patients.  It’s called called Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) and it’s deadly.

Interview On Studio 6B

 

How CAD (Coronary Artery Disease) Happens

Chemotherapy kills cancer because it shrinks its blood supply. Chemotherapy isn’t a smart drug. Therefore it shrinks your entire body’s blood supply by shrinking the diameter of your arteries and veins.

Whatever plaque you have in your arteries and veins will become increasingly worse by percentage as the diameter of your blood supply shrinks.

CAD2.jpg


Natural Remedies for CAD:

1. Garlic ~ Add 3 chopped garlic cloves to a cup of milk and boil it. All it to cool and drink it daily before going to bed. Also, include garlic in your cooking or take garlic supplements after consulting your doctor.

2. Turmeric ~ Add 1 teaspoon of turmeric powder and a little honey to a glass of warm milk. Drink it 1 or 2 times daily. Take turmeric supplements. The usual recommended dosage is 400 to 600 mg 3 times daily. However, consult a doctor before taking any supplements. Also, include turmeric powder to your cooking.

3. Caynne Pepper ~ add 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of cayenne to a cup of hot water. Drink it 2 times daily for a few weeks. You can also take cayenne supplements, but only after consulting with your doctor.

4. Lemon ~ Mix the juice of 1 lemon in a glass of war water, along with a little honey and black pepper powder. Drink it 1 or 2 times daily for a few weeks.

5. Ginger ~ Drink 2 to 3 cups of ginger tea daily. Make the tea by adding 1-teaspoon of grated ginger to a cup of hot water. Let it steep for 5 minutes, strain and add a little honey.

6. Fenugreek Seeds ~ Soak 1 teaspoon of fenugreek seeds in water overnight. The next morning, eat the soaked seeds along with the water on an empty stomach. You can add honey if you like.


A Great Alternative To Chemotherapy

How Immunotherapy Kills Cancer

Immunotherapy or biotherapy is the treatment which uses certain parts of the immune system to fight off cancer. This can be made possible by either stimulating the person’s immune system to work harder against the cancer cells, or by giving the patient man-made immune system proteins to battle cancer. Over the past few decades, immunotherapy has played an important role in the treatment of various cancers. There are also new types of immune treatments being studied which will be beneficial for cancer patients in the future.


Immunotherapy for Cancer Treatment

Some immunotherapy treatments help boost the immune system, others help train the immune system to attack cancer cells. It is also a fact that immunotherapy works better on some cancers than others. It can be used as a single mode of treatment or alongside other cancer treatments.


Types of Immunotherapy Cancer Treatment

The following are some of the types of immunotherapy treatment for cancer patients.

Monoclonal Antibodies

Antibodies are molecules that flag proteins within the body as invaders. The antibody then recruits other parts of the immune system to eradicate the infected cells. It is possible for researchers to create antibodies in a lab, which are known as ‘Monoclonal antibodies.’

  • Monoclonal antibodies work differently. Naked monoclonal antibodies are the most common type used in cancer treatment. This type of antibody doesn’t have anything attached to them, and inform the immune system to either attack cancer cells or block the proteins within the tumors which help the cancer cell grow.
  • Conjugated monoclonal antibodies include an anti-cancer protocol attached to them. These antibodies attach directly to cancerous cells. This means that the chances of side effects are lowered since the treatment goes directly to the cancer cells. It is usually used alongside chemotherapy.
  • Biospecific monoclonal antibodies have been designed to bind themselves to two different types of proteins simultaneously. Mainly, the cancer cell itself, and the immune system cell, thereby enhancing the ability of the immune system attack on the cancer cell. This treatment is mostly administered intravenously, and the doctor may also pair it with another treatment such as hormone or chemo therapy. Get a referral to a natural cancer clinic which uses immunotherapy.

Monoclonal antibodies can be used for the treatment of Stomach cancer, Prostate cancer, Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, Melanoma, Lung cancer, Hodgkin’s lymphoma, Head and neck cancers, Colorectal cancer, Chronic lymphocytic leukemia, Breast cancer and Brain cancer. Other forms of immunotherapy work by boosting the immune system. These fall in different classes of drugs such as:

  • Interleukins – A molecule produced by some immune cells used to control the growth and activity of the immune cells.
  • Interferons – Also a type of cytokine which is designed to alter the way the immune system works while fighting cancer cells.
  • Colony stimulating factors – These stimulate the immune system by boosting the production of white blood cells in the bone marrow.
  • Other drugs – Such as imiquimomd or Zyclara, Pomalidomide or Pomalyst, Lenalidomide or Revlimid, all help kick start the immune system’s reactions while dealing with cancer.

Side Effects

Since the drugs are designed to rev up the immune system, they may also lead to a range of side effects including coughing, fatigue, loss of appetite, nausea, and problems with the kidneys, liver, and lungs. BUT most importantly, immunotherapy is an effective, non-toxic, anti-cancer protocol.

Can Earthworms Really Kill Cancer?

Just a few years ago, researchers claimed that they were on the cusp of discovering how the immune-potent systems of earthworms could possibly serve as anticancer agents. Now, almost a decade later, a group of Polish scientists have discovered in a test that the coelomic (or digestive) fluid present in earthworms which helps them digest food also has certain cancer-killing properties.

The wriggly worms are raised in optimum conditions in a lab. Just like average worms, these worms are also capable of digesting any microorganism, including pathogenic ones. This result was achieved by placing the earthworms in certain conditions and by monitoring their diet for a specific time period. Under these conditions, the fluid was found to kill nearly 75% of the cancerous cells while leaving the healthy cells unscathed. This is a breakthrough discovery which could quite possibly be one of the most significant medical discoveries of the 21st century, especially since there are around 1,688,780 new cancer cases diagnosed and 600,920 cancer deaths that occur in the U.S. alone.

The scientists decided to go further with testing the digestive fluid in earthworms after they had discovered that the fluid was effective in destroying the cancer cells in the system outside the organism. This prompted the scientists to look closer into the possible effects of the digestive fluid. It has taken countless experiments to finally arrive to this stage where animal testing is being suggested after the extraordinary find.

Researchers at the Marie Curie Sklodowska University were able to extract the fluid using 4.5 volts of electricity. The coelomic fluid is then filtered and heated to 70 degrees Celsius before being cooled and stored in a freezer. While the initial experiments killed both the cancer cells as well as the normal ones, after fine tuning the diet and living temperature of the worms, the results were amazing. According to the scientists, the worms have to be fed a diet rich in nutrition such as boiled vegetables and green tea leaves.

To produce the desired results, the worms also need proper temperature and humidity. Only then is it possible to extract the coelomic fluid that’s shown promise in targeting and killing the cancer cells while leaving the normal uninfected cells healthy. While the research has proven to be fruitful, much more research is needed. The group of Polish scientists are now looking to reproduce the same results on a working lung.

While this is exciting news, there is still a long time before it’s proven effective or safe for humans. In the meantime, we recommend using natural treatments, such as essential oils and juicing.

A Holistic Approach to Cancer Treatment and Prevention

    Of the multitudes of cancer treatments available today, chemotherapy is the one which evokes the most fear in patients, and for good reason. We have all seen some person who received chemotherapy and saw how their quality of life slowly diminished. Chemotherapy kills tumors by cutting off the blood supply. But, chemo isn’t intelligent. It reduces blood supply throughout your body, not just in the cancerous tumor. So, even if you are one of the lucky few who actually become a cancer survivor by using chemo, you’ll have coronary artery disease waiting for you in a few years. On the flip side, there are natural alternative cancer treatments that are considered to be more effective without any of the negative side effects. Here, let’s take a quick look at what those alternatives to chemo are, and how they can help as a cancer treatment.


Natural Anti-Cancer Agents

    While the chemotherapy patients receive at the hospital is lethal, as in, along with killing the cancerous cells they also kill healthy cells, there are other non-toxic chemotherapies available that can indirectly kill malignancies. While these are not to be considered as stand-alone treatments, they can be used as a component of a more comprehensive treatment protocol. Vitamin B17, also known as Amygdalin or Laetrile, can selectively target and destroy cancerous cells while leaving the healthy cells virtually unharmed. Furthermore, the substance naturally occurs in many plant foods, including bitter almonds, apricot pits, and apple seeds, and can be taken as oral supplements or intravenously. Other treatments such as melatonin, shark liver oil and shark cartilage are all known to cut off the blood flow to cancerous tumors in the body.

Oxygen

    Oxygen starvation on a cellular level can lead to disease since the more toxic the body, the less oxygen is delivered to the cells. It is a well-known fact now that cancer cells cease to grow when the body (blood and tissues) are properly oxygenated. There are ways in which a person can oxygenate the body. One of those ways being a high alkaline diet or 80% raw diet which raises the internal pH, which in turn, enhances the transportation of oxygen to the cells. Another method of achieving this is through regular exercise, adequate water consumption and deep breathing. Drinking ozonated water or using ozone saunas can also be beneficial in stopping the cancer cells from spreading. In fact, this holistic approach has been so effective as a cancer treatment that hospitals in Europe, Malaysia and Mexico are administering intravenous ozone infusions in cancer patients.


Building the Immune System

    Our immune system is the body’s natural defense against all illness and diseases, including abnormal cell development. While it is true that any cell can mutate into a cancerous cell, having a healthy immune system can stop its growth and defend against the development of any malignancy. The best way to build up one’s immune system to prevent or treat cancer is by using a nutrient-dense diet and proper supplementation. Mushroom extract, milk thistle, chlorella and aloe Vera are just a few foods that help strengthen the immune system.


Detoxification

    Another holistic approach to treating cancer is by removing accumulated toxins and other metabolic wastes within the body. The main concern here is to eliminate or minimize the use of processed foods, environmental toxins and other harmful substances. This also includes cleansing the liver, kidneys, and colon by removing any stored toxins. The good news is, there are many cleansing formulas available that can cleanse the organs and eliminate harmful toxins from the body. Even fasting has been known to release any toxic build-up within the body. Coffee enemas are also useful since it prevents the re-absorption of toxins in the body. You can speak to a healthcare professional to find out how to go about with fasting, detox or an enema.


Hyperthermia (Thermal Therapy)

    Thermotherapy also known as Hyperthermia is a type of cancer treatment where the body is exposed to high temperatures starting from 103+ degrees Fahrenheit. It has been found that high temperatures can damage cancerous cells while causing minimal damage to the body. According to The British Institute of Radiology, cancer cells that are grown in vivo or vitro are sensitive to elevated temperature. Experts have told us that heat effects 99% of all types of cancer cells.

HyperthermiaMethods


Nutrition

    An anticancer strategy also needs to include proper nutrition and pure water that’s preferably filtered. It is a fact that one’s diet alone can either lead to the success or failure of a cancer treatment. So, knowing what foods feed cancer cells, which foods interfere with the cancer treatment, and what foods to eat during treatment will be essential to the success of any cancer treatment. Refined sugar and flour, and trans-fatty acids feed cancerous cells, and should be the first foods to be eliminated. Even dairy and all mucus forming foods should also be avoided. This includes processed foods, alcohol, and carbonated beverages, all of which interfere with cancer treatment and fuel cancer cells. All foods contain nutrients that help the healing process. Vegetables, fruits and herbs all have cell and tissue cleansing and repairing properties.


Juicing

   According to experts at Newcastle University, carrots have been found to contain cancer-busting natural compounds known as polyacetylenes. Polyacetylenes protect plants from disease and attacks from pests. The natural compound only occurs in the carrot family and a few other closely related species of vegetables. The compound has also shown to be effective in reducing the growth of cancer cells in rats. Beet juice has also proven to be effective in detoxification and in protecting the cells by delivering much needed oxygen and nutrients to the cells and tissue. The Ferenczi’s Effect, named after the man who discovered the tumor-inhibiting effect of betazyane in beets, proves that beets have the ability to increase oxygen intake in cells. Turmeric contains curcumin, a curcuminoid that is considered to be a potent cancer-killer. It helps detoxify the liver, and reduces the negative side effects of iron overload.

Turkey Shepherds Pie with Sweet Potato Top

If you’ve ever had a shepherds pie before you know how good they taste but can they it be healthy too? We found a way to make it healthy. The potato topping on a traditional recipe can lead to having a lot of starch, so we’ve opted to go for a sweet potato topping which is packed full of vitamins and minerals. With vitamin A being the most prominent in this super root it is great for blood circulation.

sweet-potato-benefits-benefits-of

This pie is also a good beef alternative, using turkey is a great way to achieve a low fat meal that is also high in protein. My super packed pie uses more than just a few ingredients that are healthy for you. Carrots, onions, celery are all in this dish. I like adding in some Italian squash as well as peas and corn. I like the carrot for it’s beta-carotene which is great for vision, celery is a great fat burner, and onions do more then you can imagine.

Onion_HealthBenefits1.png
Combine the pink Himalayan salt with over 85 different minerals in to this pie and oh my oh my it’s like we’re creating our own new super food.

Make sure to use only organic and non-GMO foods.

OrganicVSnongmo-3.jpg:

This is one of my favorite comforting dishes because of the diversity of the dish you really can change it to your own liking. Say you’re in the mood for bison instead, ground bison is a perfect alternative to turkey. Want more vegetables choices try using yellow squash or zucchini, mushrooms and eggplant all of them are packed full of nutrients and vitamins your body needs to live a cancer free lifestyle.

 

Ingredients

  •  1 LB  ground turkey (remember to try to find free range turkey with no additives)
  •  1 cup red onion small dice
  •  ½ cup celery chop small
  •  ½ cup carrot small dice
  •  1 cup peas
  •  1 cup sweet corn cornel
  •  1 cup zucchini small dice
  •  1 TBS finely chopped garlic
  •  2 TBS pink Himalayan salt
  •  1 TBS chopped or dried parsley
  •  ½ TBS paprika
  •  1 cup of stock (turkey is best but you can use chicken or vegetable)

 Sweet potato top

  •  1 LB sweet potato cut into 2 inch pieces
  •  ½ cup stock
  •  1 TSP pink Himalayan salt
  •  2 TBS butter (unsalted and grass fed)

Procedure for pie filling:

In a large cast-iron skillet bring onion, celery and carrots to medium high heat with 2 tablespoons of olive oil.

Cook for about five minutes or until carrots  start to sweat and onions become translucent.

Remove onion carrots celery mix from pan and reserve, keeping pan hot. In the same pan add ground turkey and continue to cook and separate turkey until it is no longer pink.

Now add in your spices garlic, salt, parsley and paprika mix well and add One cup of stock.

Let mixture come to a simmer then add back in the onions celery carrot mix to this also add the peas the corn and zucchini. Continue to cook until about half the liquid has been absorbed.

Remove from heat. In the same cast-iron skillet spread mashed sweet potatoes evenly and gently fork to create groves in potato.

Place cast iron skillet  in a preheated oven for 60 minutes. Let stand for 10-15 minutes to cool. Preheat oven to 375*F

Procedure for sweet potato top:

Bring 6 cups of water to boil in a medium to large boiling pot. Peel sweet potatoes and cut them into 2 inch pieces.

Foot pieces into boiling water let come back to a simmer and adjust heat so that it only simmers.

Let simmer for 15- 20 minutes, if potatoes gently slide off fork when stabbed they are done.

Drain potatoes in a strainer for three minutes let them sit so the excess water steam is off.

Put them back into the pot for mashing add your other ingredients stock, salt , butter and mash well. They are now ready for your topping.
