(Health Secrets) Tumors have the capability to re-seed themselves say researchers. This may be one explanation as to why a tumor reappears after being removed. Circulating cancer cells can go back to their place of origin and re-colonize in the original tumor site, in a process known as tumor re-seeding. The repopulation of the tumor site with these more aggressive cancer cells enables the new tumor to grow at a more rapid rate.
For their study reported in the journal Cell, the research team focused on the immune system, since a failed immune system plays a critical part in the re-seeding process. Concentrating on the immune system is an integral part of preventing not only metastasis, but also future re-colonization of the primary tumor site.
There are many reasons that an immune system becomes compromised. As we age, our immune system weakens. Other contributing factors are:
Lack of Exercise
A healthy diet should include plenty of raw fruits, vegetables, nuts, roots and tubers. However, because of their sugar content, fruits should be limited, and emphasis placed on vegetables. Additionally, juicing has powerful health benefits and has been known to reverse disease.
All unhealthy habits should be discarded, whether it is smoking, alcohol, or eating those “yummy” comfort foods. Healing cannot occur while continuing to put any type of unhealthy substance into the body. When addressing cancer, no stone should be left unturned. Careful note should be taken that cancer feeds on sugar and all sweets should be eliminated from the diet.
Besides eating a healthy diet and transitioning to a completely healthy lifestyle, there are natural healing alternatives that attack cancer cells and tumors while at the same time, strengthening the immune system.
The first is an extract made from the oleander plant. Please note that although extremely toxic in its raw state, oleander, when properly made into an extract, is highly effective in addressing cancer and other health conditions. Not only does it contain strong cancer fighting properties, it has been found to have six times the immune stimulating activity of any other immune stimulator known to man.
Curcumin has very powerful anti-cancer properties. In 1994, researchers in Taiwan reported that curcumin blocks EGF (epidermal growth factor) signals by 90%, stopping cancer growth.
Black Cumin Oil (Nigella Sativa) has been highly revered throughout history. Although it has been used in healing many conditions, it is most highly effective when it comes to cancer. It is one of the few cancer fighters that has had success with pancreatic cancer.
Cayenne Pepper tincture, another effective anti-cancer agent, has been especially successful when dealing with prostate cancer. Capsaicin, its main ingredient, is effective in retarding cancer cell growth.
Laetrile, sometimes known as Vitamin B-17, is another potent cancer fighter. Although the FDA has made it virtually impossible to buy this supplement anywhere, there are sources from which it can be obtained. The best laetrile comes from apricot kernels. Apricot kernels are found inside the apricot pit and they can be removed by using a nutcracker. Apple seeds are also rich in laetrile.
It is important to make sure that the body is provided with adequate amounts of iodine, selenium, magnesium, potassium, zinc, Vitamin C, Calcium, and Vitamin D. Studies are proving the value of Vitamin D not only with regard to cancer, but in treating other health conditions.
Last but not least, our emotional state affects our physical bodies. Whenever addressing cancer or any other type of illness, an effort should be made to resolve conflict, trauma, and grief.
