Frankincense (also known as Boswellic acid) does a body a lot of good: it fights infections, supports the immune system, and combats many autoimmune disorders, such as Chron’s disease and rheumatoid arthritis. New research indicates this ancient oil may even hold anticancer properties, too–especially when it comes to ovarian cancer.
Steady progress in our understanding of the immune system has led to an effective, minimally invasive therapy option: the anticancer vaccine. Seventy years ago, scientists began developing the viral anticancer vaccine, and as the medical community’s grasp of the immune system improved, the vaccine emerged. Now, medical experts can use a vaccine to direct the body’s immune system to target and eliminate cancer cells.
One of the simplest and most cost-effective ways to reclaim your health is to eat with healing in mind. In the fight against cancer, not all foods are created equal, and tomatoes–and other foods rich in lycopene–are a megastar. Incorporating this powerful antioxidant in your daily food provides an easy and proven defense against cancer growth. Lycopene is a phytonutrient–a substance found in certain plants that is great at fighting disease. A class of carotenoid, lycopene is one of the most dense antioxidant sources in the world, meaning its list of health benefits is long.
The relationship between diet and cancer is well established. We know one-third of all cancers are linked directly to nutrition, and certain foods carry an increased risk of cancer (processed meats and sugar are leading culprits), while many plants are strong cancer combatants. But you can do more than just swap berries for bacon. Some diets are designed specifically to send cancer into remission. Here we’ll provide a brief overview of some effective nutritional therapy plans that can help you reclaim your health.
Did Researchers Just Find a Cancer Cure? A new study out of Stanford University has the medical community buzzing. Researchers injected 90 mice with a cancer “vaccine,” and by the end of treatment, 87 of the mice’s cancer had disappeared–in other words, the vaccine showed a 97% cure rate. The injection isn’t technically a vaccine (which must, by definition, provide long-lasting effects) but it’s administered in the same way. The term “cancer vaccine” specifically refers to a treatment that destroys metastases and keeps cancer from returning, as explained by the American Society of Clinical Oncology. In the Stanford study, researchers injected trace amounts of immune-engaging agents into the mice’s tumors.
Mexico is home to many prominent alternative therapy cancer clinics. The best of these offer synergistic care, combining conventional medicine with alternative therapies to achieve maximum results. Why Mexico? Physicians in Mexico are able to offer effective therapies that have yet to receive approval in the U.S. This makes Mexican clinics an attractive option for patients interested in securing less invasive, holistic cancer treatment. Thousands of patients travel from around the world to access this care. Alternative cancer clinics in Mexico are typically fully staffed, functional hospitals. The majority of them are conveniently located in Tijuana, very close to the U.S. border.
Diet plays a complex role in cancer. Certain foods discourage cancer growth, while others accelerate it. Knowing which nutrients to incorporate and which to avoid is essential. First, it’s crucial to know which foods should be cut out. Proteins serve as the body’s building blocks, and for the individual with cancer, this can be dangerous. Animal proteins can feed tumors. What’s more, many animal proteins are known carcinogens. Here is a guide to some of the key foods to avoid: Processed Meats The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) determined processed meats (sausage, salami, deli meats, hot dogs, bacon, etc.) to be a leading cause of many types of cancer, chiefly colorectal.
A cancer diagnosis is often accompanied by an acute sense of powerlessness. Many patients report feeling they have no sense of control over their body, their treatment, or their lives. But the first thing to do when diagnosed with cancer is to learn about your disease, understand how lifestyle is a contributing factor to your health, and take back control. Cancer occurs when cells mutate, meaning they grow abnormally, and spread. A healthy cell knows to grow, divide, and then stop growing. Eventually, those healthy cells will die off. But cancer cells are different. Diseased cells continue growing and dividing and do not die on their own.
Too often we think of cancer as an isolated entity—the tumor measures this many centimeters, the cancer grows in this organ. But cancer doesn’t happen in a vacuum, and treatment shouldn’t either. Alternative therapies treat the whole body and the whole person, not just an isolated region. One of these essential holistic treatments is HALO light therapy. HALO therapy is engineered to infuse the body with energy. When used in combination with botanicals, HALO boosts immune function against cancer. It enables the body to take in energy just like a plant absorbs sunshine.
Often cancer treatments are invasive and destructive. Surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation can all bring severe and lasting side effects. But many patients have found a non-invasive, gentle, and effective way to treat their cancer. Rife therapy uses bio-frequency to attack cancer and other diseases. The skin is never broken and healthy cells are never compromised.
