OUT-SMARTING ‘TREATMENT RESISTANT’ CANCER CELLS – EXPANDING HORIZONS BY ENLISTING THE HELP OF ‘NEW FRONTIER MEDICINE’!!

Over the past decade, numerous pre-clinical and clinical studies have indicated that hypoxia is an important indicator of therapeutic response to radiotherapy, chemotherapy, and even surgeryContinue reading “OUT-SMARTING ‘TREATMENT RESISTANT’ CANCER CELLS – EXPANDING HORIZONS BY ENLISTING THE HELP OF ‘NEW FRONTIER MEDICINE’!!”

EFFECTIVE ‘CELL COMMUNICATION’ IS PARAMOUNT – ENLISTING THE AID OF ‘NUTRITIONAL PROTOCOLS’ TO PAVE THE WAY!!

The study of cell communication focuses on how a cell gives and receives messages within its environment and within itself, with cells relying on many signals from their environment to survive, multiply, and differentiate.  When a signaling molecule joins with an appropriate receptor on a cell surface, this binding triggers a chain of events that not only carries the signal to the cell interior, but also amplifies it.

THE GROWTH FACTOR PHENOMENON!! ‘HORMONE LADEN’ PRODUCTS, WREAKING HAVOC IN SENSITIVE TUMOR TYPES!!

Observational evidence suggests that approximately 30% to 40% of cancer cases are potentially preventable via modification of nutritional factors and food consumption patterns.  Our understanding of mammalian milk has changed from a simple food to a “species-specific endocrine signaling system,” which promotes cell growth and proliferation and which suppresses our body’s internal housecleaning mechanisms.  Continue reading “THE GROWTH FACTOR PHENOMENON!! ‘HORMONE LADEN’ PRODUCTS, WREAKING HAVOC IN SENSITIVE TUMOR TYPES!!”

NATURAL COMPOUNDS FOUND TO INHIBIT CANCER INVASION – FLAVONOID ‘LUTEOLIN’ IN THE SPOTLIGHT!!

Compounds of natural origin could lead to new, innovative therapeutic agents for cancer. It has been shown that Luteolin prevents tumor development largely by inactivating several signals and transcription pathways essential for cancer cells.   Continue reading “NATURAL COMPOUNDS FOUND TO INHIBIT CANCER INVASION – FLAVONOID ‘LUTEOLIN’ IN THE SPOTLIGHT!!”

‘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 things 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!!”
