How to stop cancer from spreading naturally

Cancer News(NaturalHealth365) How to stop cancer from spreading doesn’t necessarily mean shrinking a tumor. The conventional “tumor-shrinking approach”, which goes after the mass only with chemotherapy and radiation, leads to more tumors – which tend to penetrate the surrounding area and move to other organ sites.

Studies have shown that cancer cells can survive and thrive during (and after) chemotherapy sessions. Chemo destroys the immune system by exposing the body to toxins – which can be more hazardous than leaving the tumor alone. Keep in mind, cancer cells are designed to survive exposure to adverse conditions.

In addition, let’s not forget, cancer cells are able to thrive in a low oxygen environment with little or no “healthy” foods. Normal, healthy cells are not equipped with the luxury of converting into a cell that can do without a quality source of vitamins, minerals, and enzymes.

Although most conventional oncologist will never say this – shrinking a tumor has little or no effect on survival. Why? Because surgery, chemotherapy and radiation ignore the stem cells which generate the cancer cells. In other words, if the cause of cancer is not dealt with – it will return.

Is there an alternative to “cut, poison and burn”?

Researchers at the University of Maryland School Of Medicine have identified a peptide, or protein, derived from the Pacific Cod, which may inhibit prostate cancer and other cancers from spreading – according to preclinical research published online in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science (PNAS).

According to the senior author of the study Hafiz Ahmed, PhD, assistant professor of biochemistry, and molecular biology, understanding how these peptides work could allow us to develop foods that act as cancer therapeutics and agents for immunotherapy.

Albert Reece M.D., PhD. M.B.A., vice president for medical affairs at the University of Maryland said, “This research breaks ground in our ongoing quest to discover new ways to prevent cancer from metastasizing to distant parts of the body.” The sentiment of scientist working on this is that if they could offer patients a natural dietary way to block metastasis – which would have a major influence on improving the outcome and survival of cancer patients.

Natural ways to limit cancer cell growth

Researchers at the University of California, Riverside have identified components in pomegranate juice, which both inhibited the movement of cancer cells and weaken their attraction to chemical signals that promotes metastasis of prostate cancer.

The compound DIM (Diindolylmethane), a metabolic product, which is produced in the body following its ingestion has been shown to prevent tumors of the prostate, ovary, cervix and also several types of leukemia. And, most importantly, DIM suppresses cancer stem cells – the lingering super-potent cancer cells, which cause cancer to reappear years later.

DIM induces apoptosis (cell suicide) and inhibits factors that allow cancers cells to invade healthy tissues. One of the best ways to “get your DIM” is to eat plenty of cruciferous vegetables like, cabbage and kale. Another way to control cancer cell growth is with calorie control. Obviously, we are not suggesting you starve yourself – but make every calorie count – hence the value of superfood nutrition like, spirulina and other nutrient dense foods.

An article published in the journal Cancer Letters reports that grape seed extract is potent against advanced stage cancers. Its effect was in sharp contrast with that of chemotherapy, which becomes less potent with late stage tumors that have increased metastatic potential.

Can you imagine actually having the opportunity to prevent cancer at every stage (naturally) by preventing initiation and boosting the power of our immune system? Well, we’ve got the power to stop cancer cell creation and proliferation. All you need to know is how to diversify your diet to protect yourself and, of course, work with a trusted medical professional.

A message of hope for every cancer patient

Remember, a cancer tumor is not as important as the environment in which it lives. Numerous clinical trials have shown that bioflavonoids and botanical extracts are possibly the gentlest (most effective) ways to stop the damage from cancer-causing toxins and maintain our cellular integrity.

    Do not forget the 100% effective cancer cure of marijuana oil. Oh, I forgot. The gov’t. has made it illegal.
    Please see the movie “Run from the cure” for all the instructions on how to make it, use it and be healed from cancer by it.
    I guess if you want to be healed from cancer, you must be a criminal to do it according to your gov’t.

    Thank you for all the good information. I was dx two years with pancreatic cancer had surgery doing well at present. just want to remain healthy. Any specific suggestions are very much appreciated. Thank you again. Bunny Brown

    Bunny Brown,

    Some of the conditions that contributed or caused the cell mutations of the pancreas haven’t necessarily changed due to surgery!
    Consume functional foods(anti-cancer) and eliminate toxic imitation foods and other toxin exposure that are known contributors to cancer activities.
    You must be a good student of your own health to prevent recurrence, in other areas of your body.
    Lots to learn, but worth it.

    To good health,
    David

    I love this post; there are so many anticancer agents in the foods we eat, and for those we can’t get enough of, supplements.

    ….music to my ears and I will be sharing it with all of my clients.

    Thank you!

    and Bunny Brown…indeed, to remain healthy, we must change the environment in which our cancer was permitted to grow–we must create an environment unfriendly to cancer thru diet, exercise, proper sleep, stress management,removal of toxins and use of supportive supplements. Be well, Elyn

    Although living in Europe, I like to read the posts on your website, as does my homeopathic MD .
    Nevertheless I would like to ask you a question.
    I am a 63 years old women,and together with my husband we ran a French restaurant during 30 years. We are aware of the problems with healthy foods !

    2 years ago, in march 2011, I was diagnosed with a pancreatic tumor. I had surgery (Whipple) and 6 months of chemo
    (chemcitabine)
    Januari 2012 the oncologist told me I’ve got metastases in my lungs and I needed another 6 months of chemo (cis-platinum)which I did.
    During the chemo cure, I sufferd from a perforation of my stomach, so they had to interrupt the treatment for several weeks. After the rest of the chemo cure the metastases had not disappeared, and I still suffer from several side effects. Meanwhile I already had been surfing the Internet to inform myself about other treatments and so I decided to stop the poisening and now I’m trying to cure myself with healthy foods, vitamins and supplements.

    However,40 years ago my spleen had to be removed due to an accident.I now think my condition has something to do with that situation, by wich my immune system was severely damaged.

    And now my question: What would you recommand me to give my immune system the boost that is nessesary to overcome my cancer ?
    Many thanks and excuse me for my mistakes in English !

    Regular consumption of Honey fulfill your Vitamin supplement and chewing green leaves of Holy Basil each day keep you out from stress. It is a very effective Primary Preventive Measures against cancer!!

    I was told I had Prostate Cancer two years ago.. I oped out of having the normal treatments of chemo and cutting along with radiation/ I have been treating my cancer with Dandelion roots and chaga which I harvest myself. Along with them and changing my lifestyle and incorporating good healthy nourishment into my diet I have never felt better. All symptoms have left me and I am feeling stronger every day. Exercise is also very important. For all those that are terrified about cancer. I say this. Cancer is just another every day disease. It can be looked after by making the right choices in life. No one knows your body better than you. I will close saying this. Education not medication is what is needed in todays world. Lots of luck to those like myself.
