Cancer. It’s a word that reverberates deeply in the ears of anyone who hears it. No one wants to think that they might have it, especially when symptoms begin in the body.
The American Cancer Society says that cancer statistics are on the rise, and have been rising every since the 1970’s. Often cancer has only very mild symptoms, and patients usually get diagnosed while being tested for something completely different. The sooner a person gets diagnosed, the better their chances for fast and effective recovery.
Cancer begins on a cellular level, when abnormal cells grow out of control, eventually invading surrounding tissues. Most cancerous cells result from a change in or damage to genes, called a mutation. Cancer cells behave differently from normal cells. These malignant cells do not obey the instructions from the genes and die off, but form a mass of tissue called a tumor, or travel throughout the body through the blood and lymph systems. Not all tumors are cancerous. There is a list of natural remedies that can help you treat the symptoms of cancer:
A number of small studies of smoked marijuana found that it can be helpful in treating nausea and vomiting from cancer chemotherapy. A few studies have found that inhaled (smoked or vaporized) marijuana can be helpful treatment of neuropathic pain (pain caused by damaged nerves). Smoked marijuana has also helped improve food intake in HIV patients in studies. There are no studies in people of the effects of marijuana oil or hemp oil. More recently, scientists reported that THC and other cannabinoids such as CBD slow growth and/or cause death in certain types of cancer cells growing in lab dishes. Some animal studies also suggest certain cannabinoids may slow growth and reduce spread of some forms of cancer.
The roots of this plant have been used for health and longevity for thousands of years in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Now scientists are saying that Korean Ginseng has a huge role to play in the prevention, and possibly treatment, of cancer. One study on Korean men showed that taking Korean Ginseng reduced the risk of multiple types of cancer by up to 40%. The most likely mode of action is that Korean Ginseng enhances the immune system. Laboratory studies have also confirmed that Korean Ginseng directly inhibits the growth of kidney tumors. Some of the chemicals in Ginseng may increase blood pressure, so be careful with this herb if you’re on medication.
The fish known as “oily fish” are undoubtedly the best source of omega 3 fatty acids that exists, and thus are very well-suited to support cardiac health.
They also help protect you from cancer thanks to their antiangiogenic agents. They cut off the blood supply to cancer cells, slowing their growth and making them die of hunger.
Studies have shown evidence of baking soda being used effectively for the treatment of cancer. However, baking soda is typically used in combination with several other recommendations. There are also variations of recommendations on the use of baking soda for cancer, such as it being administered by mouth or intravenously. One recent study published in the Cancer Research journal, found that sodium bicarbonate increased pH in tumors and reduced cancer metastasis.
