Is it true that only 15% of cancers are caused by genetics?
Yes. Environment, Drugs and lifestyle play major roles.
Inflammation and Cellular oxidation.
What causes cells to divide abnormally?
Cancer is unchecked cell growth. Mutations in genes can cause cancer by accelerating cell division rates or inhibiting normal controls on the system, such as cell cycle arrest or programmed cell death. As a mass of cancerous cells grows, it can develop into a tumor.
The cells don’t respond normally to signals this can be caused by free radical damage, inflammation and a over response by our immune system.
Are there any products or lifestyle changes we can make?
Curamed- BCM-95 vs 5-FU
BCM-95 kills off 5% less cancer cells then 5-FU however 5-FU stimulates Cancer stem cells and has a higher rate of re-occurance. BCM-95 surpress cancer stem cells.
In 2015 a study showed that adding BCM-95 to 5-FU it improved its effectiveness on chemoresist cells. “Chemoresistance occurs when the cancer cell is no longer responding to the cancer-killing effects of chemotherapy. The cancer cell ‘learns’ how to survive the chemo. It is a huge problem Cancer cell resistance to chemotherapy is a major cause of death in patients with colorectal cancer. In a first-of-its-kind study, BCM-95® Curcumin was found to improve chemotherapy’s effectiveness in killing chemoresistant cells
OPC– We found that androgen-responsive cells LNCaP are more sensitive to OPC in terms of inhibition of proliferation in comparison to androgen receptor-negative PC3 or DU145 cells. Treatment with OPC resulted in a decrease in the percentage of LNCaP cells in the S phase and an increase in the percentage of cells in sub G1 phase. The anti-proliferative and pro-apoptotic effect of OPC in the LNCaP cell line was associated with down-regulation of expression of the androgen receptor. Interestingly, similar regulatory effects of OPC, such as inhibition of expression of cyclin-dependent kinases and cyclins and stimulation of tumor suppressors p21 and p27, were seen in LNCaP and PC3 cells. Favorable changes in the Bcl-2/Bax ratio were observed in LNCaP and PC3 cells after the treatment with OPC. OPC caused an increase of phosphorylated mitogen-activated protein kinase p44 and p42, thus suggesting induction of cellular differentiation.
CONCLUSIONS:We conclude that OPC is a candidate that fulfills criteria for chemopreventive strategies in prostate cancer that might be established in following in vivo studies.
Boswellia and Frankincense oil- It regulates the cellular epigenetic machinery which influences the genes to heal. It is also a strong anti-inflammatory. It stops DNA- damaging inflammation and oxidation. Stops cancer formation and tumor growth and neutralizes cancer causing compounds. Frankincense oil contains AKBA Acetyl-11-keto-B-boswellic acid. AKBA has been shown to inhibit the replication of leukemia and prostate cancer cells. It has also been shown to suppress the progression of breast cancer cells.
In Brain cancer patients where they experience cerebral edema , 60% of the patients had a 75% reduction of cerebral swelling when give 4,200 mg of Frankincense a day.
It boosts the immune system by increase our white blood cells (body’s primary defense) and by keeping inflammation at bay.
Estrosense – contains DIM and Calcium D-glucorante.
DIM is a precursor to I3C . Indole-3-carbinol is a substance found in vegetables such as broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, collards, cauliflower, kale, mustard greens, turnips, and rutabagas. Indole-3-carbinol is used for prevention of breast cancer, colon cancer, and other types of cancer. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has reviewed indole-3-carbinol as a possible cancer preventive agent and is now sponsoring clinical research for breast cancer prevention.
It blocks receptors for estrogens.
Curamed Prostate – Curcumin, Pomegranite,Grape Seed extract, D3 and silymarin
Prostate health support should be a focus of every man’s daily supplement regimen. For the ultimate in prostate support, CuraMed Prostate should be his first choice. This formula targets three major aspects of men’s health—cellular protection, free radical defense, and male hormone balance—for powerful support of prostate function.*
• Healthy PSA Levels*†
• Male Hormone Balance and Detoxification*
• Oxidative Stress Defense*
Provides Nutrients that Matter
CuraMed Prostate combines five individual powerful ingredients into one unbeatable team that supports prostate health.*
• Curcumin: Clinically studied for intensive cellular protection from oxidative stress and healthy detoxification, this powerful botanical compound is blended with turmeric oil for enhanced absorption and benefits, and is backed by 31 published studies.*
• Pomegranate Seed Oil Extract: Omega-5 (punicic acid) from pomegranate seed oil is a powerful nutrient that supports healthy androgen levels†, cellular protection, and prostate function.*
• French Grape Seed VX1®: This tannin-free OPC extract provides 100% absorbable polyphenols to reduce the risk of oxidative stress and support healthy cells and testosterone balance.*
• Vitamin D3: A critical nutrient essential for prostate cell health and healthy hormonal balance.*
• Silybin: A powerful compound from milk thistle, silybin supports detoxification and prostate cell health.*
While saw palmetto is one choice for prostate support, there is strong research that supports the use of the combination of cell-supporting ingredients that can only be found in CuraMed® Prostate. If you already use a saw palmetto supplement, CuraMed Prostate can be added to your regimen for even greater benefits.*
Why is omega-5 fatty acid important?
Omega-5 (punicic acid) provides hormone balancing benefits, and is actually a rarity in the natural world. Pomegranates are one of the only known plant sources of this valuable nutrient.*
Black Mustard Seed:
Serious Support When You Need it Most
When you need to defend against oxidative stress, Black Mustard Seed delivers. It is a highly concentrated source of glucosinolates, cruciferous compounds from black mustard (Brassica nigra) seeds that can also be found in lesser amounts in kale, Brussels sprouts, and broccoli.
A key glucosinolate is sinigrin, which converts into cell-protecting AITC (allyl-isothiocyanate) in the body, and plays a critical role in defense from oxidative stress for health and longevity. Black Mustard Seed from Terry Naturally is a highly concentrated superior source, standardized for a minimum of 25% glucosinolates for optimal well being.*
Black Mustard Seed Helps You Fight Back
In order to thrive, we all need optimal health at a cellular level. The compounds in Black Mustard Seed are the ultimate support for healthy cell formation and development.*
