‘SWITCHING OFF’ CANCEROUS GROWTH – COULD THIS BE THE ‘HOLY GRAIL’??

There are many factors in cancer development as we know, but what if we could ‘switch off cancer growth naturally’, without harm to healthy cells??   Continue reading “‘SWITCHING OFF’ CANCEROUS GROWTH – COULD THIS BE THE ‘HOLY GRAIL’??”

GROWTH HORMONE, ENERGIZING CANCEROUS CELLS – A FINE BALANCING ACT!!

Firstly, lets look at Insulin Growth Factor-1 (IGF-1) and how raising this factor enhances cancer growth.  Key signal IGF-1 is a growth factor or a growth hormone which helps thing grow, which can also determine our risk for cancer, as the more IGF-1 our body produces the more our cells proliferate, grow, spread or metastasize.  Continue reading “GROWTH HORMONE, ENERGIZING CANCEROUS CELLS – A FINE BALANCING ACT!!”

‘ENLIGHTENING INSIGHT’ – COULD ARTIFICIAL SWEETENERS BE INADVERTENTLY FEEDING CANCEROUS GROWTHS??

In this new age of research, Scientists have recently discovered that amino acids, the building blocks of proteins, are cancers preferred source of fuel, thereby enhancing the growth of cancerous cells.   Continue reading “‘ENLIGHTENING INSIGHT’ – COULD ARTIFICIAL SWEETENERS BE INADVERTENTLY FEEDING CANCEROUS GROWTHS??”

EMERGING NOVEL APPROACH – ‘STARVING CANCER CELLS’ NATURALLY!!

‘Scientists find that amino acids power growth in cancer cells’

It is a tragedy that there has yet to be a single, high-quality clinical (human) trial conducted to investigate a very promising anticancer phenomenon that researchers have known about since 1959.   Continue reading “EMERGING NOVEL APPROACH – ‘STARVING CANCER CELLS’ NATURALLY!!”

‘TUMOR SUPPRESSOR PROTEIN’ OR ‘CANCER GENE’?? NEW INSIGHTS INTO BRCA1!!

Experts around the globe estimate that nearly half of all cancer cases are preventable with diet and healthy lifestyle changes!!

With this knowledge in mind and the fact that 90-95% percent of women who develop breast cancer ‘do not have a BRCA inherited gene mutation’, this said, what further information should be presented to women who are found to have this genetic BRCA1 coded gene?? Continue reading “‘TUMOR SUPPRESSOR PROTEIN’ OR ‘CANCER GENE’?? NEW INSIGHTS INTO BRCA1!!”

THE ‘FEAR RESPONSE’ – PARALYZING CLEAR DECISION MAKING IN THE WAKE OF A CANCER DIAGNOSIS!!

“Knowledge is the most powerful weapon in overcoming fear”

Sadness, worry or fear are natural emotions during the cancer journey and in some circumstances, the instantaneous triggering of the ‘flight response’ in fearful situations can be life-saving.  However, in situations where cognitive processing is desired, and needed, the presence of fear is counter-productive.   Continue reading “THE ‘FEAR RESPONSE’ – PARALYZING CLEAR DECISION MAKING IN THE WAKE OF A CANCER DIAGNOSIS!!”

BOOSTING OUR ‘INNATE IMMUNITY’ – TRUSTING IN NATURE TO PAVE THE WAY!!

‘With an intact immune system there is no room for cancer!!’

Our immune system is known to be our ‘first line of defense‘ against disease!!  As with most cancer types and other chronic conditions, which aren’t autoimmune in nature, there is a need to up-regulate the immune system and prime it for battle.  There are many natural ways this can be done, especially with a greater understanding of what suppresses and what boosts our immune system in the first place. Continue reading “BOOSTING OUR ‘INNATE IMMUNITY’ – TRUSTING IN NATURE TO PAVE THE WAY!!”
