Breast Cancer

Breast cancer is a frightening diagnosis for women (normally diagnosed in Ontario by the medical system), particularly in view of the profound secondary effects of standard of care treatments such as chemotherapy and radiation. Despite apparent gains in technology and science, mortality rates for cancer remain relatively unchanged and many who have watched family members and friends succumb to the ravages of chemical and radiation interventions are now seeking alternatives.

Life Style and Diet

Since the early 1970’s physicians and clinicians working in the field of holistic and integrative medicine have explored and documented many excellent treatment options for cancer patients who wish to preserve the integrity of their constitutional health while managing the disease into long-term remission. Principal among these is

  • An essential intravenous high dose vitamin C. Based on the Nobel-prize winning work of pioneer Dr. Linus Pauling and further developed by such luminaries as Dr. Thomas E. Levy, vitamin C IV therapy more frequently, in combination with a complete program of a good diet:
    • Lifestyle modifications like the anti-cancer ketogenic diet so that pH of the body is Alkaline,
    • Eat Anti-Angiogenesis diet,
    • Zero white sugar consumption is one of the most proactive measures an individual may take to prevent all diseases where cancer is one of them. A patient who is suffering from any cancer condition should make sure that consumed diet is also zero sugar. The Fifth Estate of the CBC News has the following video to watch about the dangers of sugar consumption
  • Naturopathic supplementation,Curcumine, Glutathion, Alpha Lipoic Acid, Omega oil,
  • Hyperbaric oxygen,
  • Physical exercise, and
  • Personal inquiry, have been proven time and again to be an outstanding means by which patients given a morbid prognosis can take control of their own fate and support the body to do what it does best… restore balance and vital health.

Dynamics

While genes have an important role to play, the field of epigenetics now conclusively tells us that context is key… genes are not as determinant as we’ve been led to imagine by the popular press, but are turned on or off as a result of stress and other mitigating powers at work in our surrounds. This is why taking personal inventory, examining professional, family, and relationship dynamics, and exploring one’s psychological and spiritual attainments, is so important. And while we are all keenly aware of pollutants and hazards in the earth, water and air, the issue of susceptibility is key. Even when all conditions are maintained at a constant, we very often observe that one person will fall ill while another does not, highlighting the importance of looking at the overall strength and resilience of the constitution as a cornerstone for survival in these often troubled times.

Ketogenic

What’s more, as cutting-edge research now tells us, cancer is best understood as a metabolic disease rather than one of mere abnormal cell growth produced by genetic or environmental factors. The research of Dr. Thomas Seyfried in particular, a prominent promoter of the ketogenic diet, has illuminated the mechanisms within the cancer cell that point indisputably towards the impaired cellular energy metabolism which defines the disease, no matter where its point of origin in the body. In effect, healthy cells can switch between both glucose and fats as energy sources while cancer cells cannot. Exploiting this impairment, the ketogenic diet strictly removes all sources of glucose and carbohydrates from the diet, replacing them with high quality plant fats and fatty acids like coconut oil, olive oil, avocado, and macadamia nuts, to name a few. Bringing blood glucose levels down to a minimum, this approach effectively starves cancer while continuing to provide a rich and abundant supply of energy to the body in the form of these superb fats. When dietary modifications like this are combined with intravenous vitamin C, the results are often spectacular. Mega dosing with anywhere from 50-100grams of C ensures that this important helper can reach and saturate tumor tissues where its presence is preferentially toxic to cancer cells.

Cancer is always treated after the fact of its invasion. We need to be proactive and prevent it before it gains any ground or before it starts.

Cancer remains to be a diagnosis that causes tremendous fear yet in truth it’s simply a call to bring balance and awareness to our living. Rather than being experienced as a terrible turn of events it can be viewed as an opportunity to be embraced and exploited for the highest and best.

Proactive measures

In the past 25 years in clinical treatments, I concluded that the majority of female do not have clear information to conduct a proper monthly self breast examination. Most of them consider that the few seconds flimsy palpation constitutes an examination.

I emphasize to my patients that females should perform a thorough self breast examination on day 15 of their cycle, while menopausal women should examine their own breasts on the first day of the calendar month. The monthly self examination should be backed up by a yearly examination by a specialized nurse or a physician. A woman who smokes and uses the oral contraceptive pills should request a yearly blood test of cancer markers (Ca 15-3 and CEA) starting at age 35, while a woman who does not smoke or uses oral contraceptive may request the same yearly blood test at age 40years.

It is proactive prevention not a race with any disease.
