Cancer Treatment With Self-Oxygenation Therapies

Medical research suggests that cancer is based and caused by low oxygen levels in cells or tissue hypoxia. Of course, there are other factors like smoking that can lead to lung cancer, heredity that increases chances of breast cancer or prostate cancer or blood cancer, diet that can lead to throat or stomach or colon cancers and so forth. These factors are also important in understanding cancer causes and search for cure for cancer.

However, body oxygenation is the key factor Note that I am talking about body oxygenation since it is not just tumors, but the whole body hypoxia is required for appearance of cancer cells. Hence, cancer sure requires normal body oxygenation.

How could baking soda or sodium bicarbonate influence body and tumor oxygenation? It releases CO2 or carbon dioxide. CO2 is dilator of blood vessels or vasodilator. It is also crucial for release of oxygen in cells due to the Bohr effect.

More information about cancer research, cancer causes, and natural alternative therapies for cancer cure: http://www.normalbreathing.com/diseases-cancer.php .

These are the key factors that increase oxygen transport to cancer cells in case when Dr. Tullio Simoncini (Italy) injects baking soda solution into the artery leading to the tumor. Therefore, baking soda cancer treatment therapy works due to increased CO2 levels in the blood that increase oxygen delivery to the cancer cells.

Cancer patients breathe much more than both norms. Furthermore, respiratory rate (breathing frequency) of cancer patients, as many studies have found, is an independent predictor of their mortality. Over breathing or hyperventilation in people with cancer causes low CO2 levels in the arterial blood and reduces oxygen levels in their bodies and tumors.

Other natural alternative treatment therapies are based on increased body oxygenation due to breathing retraining techniques, such as the Oxygen Remedy, Buteyko method, Frolov breathing device, and some other techniques that can be used for cancer cure. Find more about them since they are much more effective in treatment of cancer than foods and diets.

What about diets and foods to cure cancers? You can eat tons of supplements, vitamin B17 and super-foods, drink canisters of herbal drinks, have hundreds of colonic irrigation procedures, and practice yoga for many hours every day, but if your body oxygen level remains the same, you will suffer from the same symptoms and require the same dosage of medication.

Experience of hundreds of people using the Buteyko breathing therapy suggests that cancer tumors naturally disappear, if one gets more than 40 seconds for the body oxygen test 24/7.

Other types of cancer, like prostate cancer, blood cancer, stomach cancer, throat and lung cancers can also be addressed with these techniques.

Tests To Help With Breast Cancer Treatment Decisions

When you’ve just received a diagnosis of breast cancer, you are faced with many different treatment options. Your mind is in a whirl with fear, confusion, and disbelief. While none of these feelings help decision making, there are some tests that can help: Oncotype DX and Mammaprint. 

These tests are genomic tests that analyze the activity of specific genes in the breast tumor. They can help you determine if your risk of breast cancer coming back is high or low, which can help you in making a decision about whether to have chemotherapy, radiation, or other therapies to reduce risk after surgery.

There are two main types of tests – Oncotype DX and Mammaprint.

Oncotype Dx has two tests for breast cancer – one for Ductal Carcinoma in situ (DCIS) – Oncotype DX DCIS and one for invasive breast cancer – Oncotype DX.  Mammaprint has one test for invasive breast cancer. Let’s look at these in greater detail.

What are genomic tests?

Genomic tests look at specific genes in your individual tumor and try to determine what is driving its growth. This is different from genetic tests which look at your inherited risk or predisposition for cancer. Genomic tests provide information that can help tailor your treatment plan to you as an individual. They are a type of personalized medicine. This is really important, because not all breast cancers are the same and, in fact, some breast cancers might have more in common with a prostate cancer than they do with another type of breast cancer. One size treatment definitely does not fit all.

Oncotype DX DCIS

Image showing the incidence of DCIS from blog on CALMERme.comThis test is only for people diagnosed with DCIS or, as it is often called, “stage zero” breast cancer. In addition to general information such as tumor size, margins, and grade, Oncotype DX DCIS helps determine the likelihood of DCIS recurring or invasive breast cancer occurring within the next 10 years.

It examines a sample of the tumor tissue that has already been removed during the lumpectomy for DCIS. By looking at the expression of 21 different genes in the tumor, it provides a DCIS score of between 0-100. The lower the score, the lower the risk of recurrence. Two scores are given, one to determine the risk of recurrence of DCIS and another for the risk of occurrence of an invasive breast cancer.

Knowing the DCIS score can help you decide whether to have radiation treatment  following the lumpectomy. If your risk of recurrence is low, then maybe you can spare yourself further treatment and the possible side effects that go with it.

To be eligible for Oncotype DX DCIS, you need to have recently been diagnosed with DCIS and had lumpectomy surgery. The decision should be made in discussion with your doctor/oncologist.

In the US, insurance might cover the cost of this test; the testing company will help you determine if this is the case and provide information to your insurers, as necessary. In the UK, these tests can be conducted under the NHS or privately.

Many oncologists are now familiar with these tests for invasive breast cancer; sadly, the Oncotype DX DCIS test does not appear to be known by all oncologists, so it’s good for you to be proactive and start the discussion. Here is a link to the validation work done on the test that you can forward to your oncologist, and further links are given at the bottom of this post:

Clinical validation of oncotype DX DCIS

I definitely think it is worth having a discussion with your oncologist, sharing the references as necessary, and if you don’t get anywhere with the oncologist, talk to your family doctor or surgeon.

Oncotype DX and Mammaprint

Both Oncotype DX and Mammaprint are genomic tests suitable for early stage invasive breast cancer. They both predict the benefit of chemotherapy or other types of treatment, as well as the likelihood of 10 year recurrence.

They are similar tests but have some differences, as outlined below:

Comparison of oncotype DX and mammaprint for invasive breast cancer

Looking at this table can help determine if you are eligible for either of these tests.

As with Oncotype DX DCIS, some insurance companies in the US will pay for these tests whereas some don’t include them in coverage. Both testing companies offer financial assistance or guidance, so it’s worth calling them to discuss if you are interested and want to check coverage. In the UK, these tests can be conducted under the NHS or privately.

These tests are important because some of the cancer treatments, like chemotherapy, can have many side effects and are hard to get through. If there is little to no benefit in these treatments for you as an individual, then these genomic tests give you the confidence to not have a treatment that has greater potential for risk than for benefit.

Obviously the decision of further treatment is based on more than just these results. It involves detailed discussion with your oncologist, but also personal consideration of what you want and how you feel. Remember, you can take your time over treatment decisions. You might feel rushed, but take adequate time until you feel comfortable that you are making the right personal decision. These tests can go a long way in giving you confidence in your decision, but it is still a personal choice that needs to be right for you as an individual based on your mind and spirit, as well as your body.

Here are links to each of these three tests for more information

Natural Killer Cell Therapy and Cancer Treatment

learn-about-natural-killer-cells-nk-cells-for-breast-cancer-treatmentNatural killer (NK) therapy involves using natural killer cells derived from peripheral blood samples or cord blood samples as a treatment for cancerous diseases. It may be used as a treatment for those cancers that have failed to be eradicated by stem cell transplant treatment.

One article (1) looked at the use of natural killer cell therapy and the treatment of cancer. It studied ways in which NK therapy can be an effective way to kill cancer cells. They found that natural killer cell therapy directed specifically at cancer cells can preferentially kill cancer cells, leaving normal cells alone. The mechanism of action appears to be antibodies directed at cancer cells, which activate natural killer cells that go on to kill cancer cells.

They noted that this type of therapy is currently very expensive so it isn’t yet sure that it can be a cost-effective way to treat cancer.

The Role of Bovine Leukemia Virus in Breast Cancer

Up to 20% of all cancers are linked to infections—particularly viruses—and the list of potentially carcinogenic infectious agents is growing. It could be great if we found a virus that contributed to breast cancer risk, because then, we might have new ways to prevent and treat it. Currently, the dietary link between meat and dairy and breast cancer is considered a saturated fat effect. But, there is a cancer-causing cow virus that infects the mammary gland cells of cows. Infectious virus is then released into the milk supply. And, since most U.S. dairy herds are infected, scientists figured Americans are often exposed to this bovine leukemia virus. But, we didn’t have proof, until 2003—34 years after the virus was first identified.

Early on, our best available tests failed to find antibodies to the virus in human blood. When our immune system is exposed to a virus, it creates antibodies to attack it. No antibodies; no exposure. So, this led to the prevailing opinion that this virus poses no public health hazard. Those tests were state of the art at the time, but extremely insensitive, compared to more modern techniques.

bovine-leukemia-virus-in-breast-cancerSo, researchers decided to re-examine the issue, now that we had better tests. So, they took blood from about 250 people just to answer the question: Do any humans have antibodies to bovine leukemia virus? And 191 of them did; 74%—not that we should be surprised. By then, nearly 90% of American dairy herds were infected. And in the latest national survey, 100% of the big factory farms were infected when you test the milk coming out of those operations.

So, why isn’t there an epidemic of udder cancer out there? Well, see, dairy cattle are hamburgered so young that there’s not a lot of time for them to develop gross tumors. And, that’s how most women may be getting infected. Although pasteurization should knock out the virus, who hasn’t eaten a pink-in-the-middle burger at some point in their life?

The bottom line is that the long-held assumption that bovine leukemia virus is not a public health hazard is no longer tenable. This whole field of investigation needs to be reopened, with the next step determining whether humans are actively, actually infected. The presence of antibodies is generally interpreted as an indicator of past or present infection. But, theoretically, maybe we just made antibodies to dead virus we ate—virus that had been killed by cooking, or pasteurization. Just because three-quarters of us have been exposed doesn’t mean we were actively infected with the virus.

To prove that, we’d actually have to find the retrovirus actively stitched into our own DNA. Well look, millions of women have gotten breast surgery. Why not just look at that tissue? Researchers did, and, in 2014, published their findings in the CDC’s Emerging Infectious Diseases journal. And, 44% of samples tested positive—proving for the first time that humans can be infected with bovine leukemia virus.

The final step then, is to determine if the virus is actually contributing to disease. In other words, are the bovine leukemia viruses we’re finding in breast tissue cancer-causing, or just harmless passengers? One way to figure that out is to see if the virus is more often present in those with breast cancer. But no one had ever looked for the virus in breast tissue from cancer victims, until now. The presence of bovine leukemia virus DNA in breast tissues was strongly associated with diagnosed and confirmed breast cancer. As many as 37% of breast cancer cases may be attributable to BLV exposure. As many as 37% of human breast cancer cases may be attributable to exposure to bovine leukemia virus.

Doctor’s Note

For some historical background leading up to these shocking findings, see my last video, Is Bovine Leukemia Virus in Milk Infectious?

I couldn’t wait to read the meat and dairy industry journals to see how they’d try to spin this. Find out what I found out—in my next and final video in this series, Industry Response to Bovine Leukemia Virus in Breast Cancer.

Validity And Therapeutic Efficacy Of Ozone Therapy

As we all know that healthy cells need oxygen to live. The potential for the inclusion of ozone therapy in medicine is purposeful. It has been used as an alternative medical approach for the past four decades.Ozone Therapy Treatment For Breast Cancer

Ozone therapy is not used only for beauty treatments. It can also have impressive effects in cancer treatments

Ozone is a molecular gas with three oxygen atoms that was discovered in the mid-nineteenth century. Despite having some dangerous effects, researchers conclude that it has more therapeutic effects in medicine than being threatening.

Definition Of Ozone Therapy:

The introduction of ozone gas (a highly reactive form of pure oxygen) to treat medical conditions. It is an alternative medical treatment to increase the amount of oxygen in the body.

Contrary to the normal healthy human cells that love oxygen, in which the body is suffering from a disease that causes viruses, bacteria, parasites and fungi, including HIV/AIDS, cancer, arthritis and microbial cells all are almost anaerobic (live without oxygen/air) Or in other words, these microbes cannot live in oxygen.

Imagine what will happen if they are exposed to highly pure and reactive form of oxygen! What might happen if this ozone gas is infused slowly in body on daily practice for a few months, saturating all the body fluids and the cells present in it?

How Ozone Therapy Works:

Ozone gas is a very high oxidizing agent so its high concentrations can be toxic to the human body and is also considered a cause of pollution.

On the contrary, small doses stimulate some naturally occurring antioxidants in the body which help fight diseases. The reactive properties of ozone help the body to remove these obstruction and heal the diseased cells.

After ozone therapy in bacteria, the phospholipids (derivatives of fat) and lipoprotein undergo oxidation hence, the virtue of the bacterial cell wall is disrupted.

In fungi, The ozone treatment inhibits the cell growth at different stages.

In viruses, the viral capsid (protein shell of viruses) is damaged and this in turn disturbs the reproductive cycle by disrupting the virus to cell contact.

The cells have weak enzyme coating that makes them vulnerable to virus invasion, leading them to be susceptible to oxidation (a reaction in which a material combines with oxygen and gives up electrons) and excretion from the body. Which then alternatively replaces them with healthy cells.

Oxygen metabolism:

Ozone therapy leads to an increase in the red blood cell glycolysis (process of conversion of glucose splits into two molecules of a three-carbon sugar) rate that results in an increased amount of oxygen in the tissues.

Ozonotherapy Activates Immune System:

A whole cascade of immunological responses are generated by introducing ozone infusion therapy. It activates our defense system i.e the monocytes and lymphocytes (white blood cells) and induce the production of cytokines (proteins released by cells of immune system) hence, its one of the best alternative treatment of cancer in which immune system slows down.

It also induces specific enzymes and helps in treating necrotic tissues and stroke.

Routes Of Administration Of Ozone:

Depending upon the condition being treated, there are several ways of administering ozone in the body:

  • Extracorporeal re-circulatory autohemo perfusion: ( In which blood out of one arm is ozonated, sterilized and filtered outside the body, and then pumped continuously back into the other arm.)
  • Autohemotherapy (mild treatment ex vivo of blood with ozone, i.e., outside the body and then prompt infusion in the donor)
  • Direct infusion of gaseous ozone via vein or artery especially in the case of critical limb ischemia (inadequate blood supply to limb)
  • Colorectal insufflation (blowing) of ozone like an enema to treat colon cancer, fistula, etc.
  • Ozone is also used as topical treatment of ulcer, burns and infected wounds difficult to heal.
  • Ozone vaginal insufflation (blowing)
  • Ozone ear insufflation (blowing in ear)
  • Ozone charged drinking water
  • Ozone air purification (low levels of ozone sterilise the room air)

Benefits And Uses Of Ozonotherapy:

It has a number of advantages in treating disease conditions of the body:

  • Diabetes: Some evidence shows that ozone improves blood sugar by activating the antioxidant system.
  • Slipped disc in spine by releasing the growth factors.
  • Heart disease (improves oxygen utility to reduce ischemia in heart diseases)
  • Inactivates HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) owing to the reduction of HIV P24 core protein
  • Activates immune system by releasing cytokines (proteins to fight infections)
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Ulcers and abscess
  • It can reduce many cases of chronic pain through acting upon the pain receptors.
  • Healing effects on herpes, macular degeneration, dental infections, cystitis, gangrenes, burns, infections of intestines, etc
  • Cancer: Since the cancer cells are anaerobic, so they die when exposed to oxygen via ozone RHP technique in which ozone is infused in the blood stream.
  • Used as antibacterial agent to treat oral infections.

Side Effects/Disadvantages:

As it is said that “excess of anything is bad”. Similarly, ozone gas can display hazardous effects too:

  • Ozone (O3) from the atmosphere can be toxic when inhaled from the polluted air.
  • Safety zone has not been studied enough
  • If given intravenously, it may cause blood clots in lungs and get very fatal/life threatening
  • Dietary antioxidants like Vit E, C, etc. can prevent effects of Ozone (O3)
  • Pregnancy and Breastfeeding are the two on which there is not much of research made so staying on a safe side ozone therapy should be avoided in them.

Conclusion:

The versatility and magnitude of beneficial effects of ozone therapy have become clear in treating cancerous cells being anaerobic, orthopedics, mucosal and cutaneous infection. The future must focus on the inception of safe and defined parameters to determine precise guidelines for treating cancers, infections, etc

Ozonotherapy with its miraculous properties is without a doubt a significant tool in medicine. It is now up to us, the patients and physicians to demand access to such healing substances that nature has gifted us.

Controlling the Spread of Breast Cancer: New Study

Controlling The Spread of Breast Cancer PHD2Breast cancer is considered the second leading cause of cancer deaths, mainly due its metastasis (spread). Recently Scientists have found that the ability of breast cancer to metastasize can now be impaired by a reduction in the expression of PHD2 oxygen sensor.

Scientists at the VIB and KULeuven have found out that the reduction in the expression of PHDs oxygen sensors impairs the metastatic ability of breast cancers. This suggests that PHD2 inhibition may have an important role in therapeutics. This study was published in a renowned medical journal “Cell Reports” which usually highlight innovative biological research.

This study has, for the first time, studied the effect of PHD2 expression blocking in a random breast cancer model that closely resembles human cancer. The study also discloses the unpredicted role of stromal fibroblast cells, the cells involved in supporting cancer tissue and promoting the spread of cancer.

PHD2 Inhibition Globally and Metastasis Reduction

A team of researchers led by Peter Carmeliet at VIB/KU Leuven have discovered that genetically blocking PHD2 results in a significant reduction in the metastasis of breast cancer which is a significant cause of death in breast cancer patients. Despite the advances in the breast cancer treatment, the need to develop an effective therapy for controlling the breast cancer metastasis is still unmet.

The research has also found out that blocking the PHD2 expression does not cause the growth of the tumor. Hence, it is a comparatively safer approach in therapeutics than the previous experiments.

Blocking the Escape Route for Cancer

The study suggests that by inhibiting the PHD2, cancer spread can be reduced via two important mechanisms that are:

  • Normalization of the blood vessels supplying the tumor
  • Deactivation of “cancer-activated fibroblasts.”

Within the tumor, the support fibroblast cells become highly active and form a network of support connective tissue which serves as “highways” for cancer cells traveling to distant organs.

The majority of anti-tumor therapies focus on attacking the cancer cells. Unfortunately, there is not even a single therapy that targets this fibroblast and controls the metastasis.

A researcher proposed that:
“We have discovered that inhibition of PHD2 oxygen sensors causes reduction in the spread of breast cancer in two ways: First, it facilitates the tumor blood vessels in returning their normal and stronger state, reducing the vessel wall escape of cancer cells. Second, it prevents cancer cells from hijacking the surround activated fibroblast cells and instructing them in building passages of support connective tissue, allowing the cancer cell migration to other parts of the body.” – Peter Carmeliet

The research present in the July 2015 issue of Cell Reports has opened doors for the further exploration of the role of PHD2 inhibition in the treatment of breast cancer in humans.

Royal Recognition of the Research

Dr. Carmeliet has been honored by Belgium’s royal monarch for his years of struggle and dedication towards solving the cancer mysteries and discovering the role of angiogenesis (formation of new blood vessels) in this deadly disease.

2 Ways to Soothe an Anxious Mind and a Tired Body During Breast Cancer Diagnosis or Treatment

Breast Cancer Stress Relief For Anxiety With Tea & BreathingIf you are in any phase of a breast cancer diagnosis or treatment; now would be a great time to plan for some self help. Simple, yet profound ways to soothe an anxious mind and a tired body may be as easy as:

  • All you need is time (which you MUST take)
  • Find a quiet place (maybe in nature) and
  • Enjoy a nice warm cup of medicinal calming tea (Calm Tea)
  • Create some quiet time so you can breathe consciously

When stress hormones spike due to any anxiety – yes, you can do something. Make yourself a  cup of Calm Tea, sit quietly and “Breathe with Purpose”. This will create inner calm and quiet. We know that chemical imbalances occur from treatments and other daily stresses. Toxins are also absorbed during treatments. Even in our home or work environment, toxins are contributing to our stress.

It is important to get our “mind” back: back in focus.  There is nothing worse than feeling anxious all the time. It only creates more worry.  All we want is to feel balanced and calm. These two functions are essential for overall health. Breathing consciously and with awareness will bring your mind under control and into the moment. This is where it belongs.

Calm is the Key – Love is the answer. Being calm is such an amazing feeling but you must love yourself enough to set an intention to experience it. I know it is hard to begin but begin you must, and once armed with the right tools there should be no stopping you. All you need is time (which you MUST take), a quiet place (maybe in nature) and a nice warm cup of medicinal calming tea. Your body and mind will instinctually know it is needed and respond in kind. Ultimately, once you practiced this delightful combination of tea time, breath work and “you” time the results will speak for themselves. But don’t take my word for it, try it yourself and start today. Remember you deserve this!

Learn How Yoga Offers Relief From Cancer-Related Fatigue

Breast Cancer Yoga Pose

Angela Strynkowski, E-RYT 500 Happily Doing “Legs Over Bolster” Yoga Pose

Author: Diana Ross, E-RYT 500, Posted By: Breast Cancer Yoga Staff.

Cancer-related fatigue (CRF) is very common. Fatigue can often be confused with tiredness, but there are differences between the two conditions. For one, tiredness happens to everyone, especially after certain activities or chemo – but  fatigue is less common and an excessive whole-body tiredness that is not relieved with sleep.   This debilitating condition can impact your quality of life.  It can be acute (lasting a month or less) or chronic (lasting from one month to six months or longer). The precise reason for this intensive tiredness is unknown, but practitioners believe it may be related to the process of cancer itself or chemotherapies and radiation treatments. (CRF) is one of the most common side effects of cancer and its associated treatments. Usually, it comes on suddenly, and does not result from activity or exertion. It is often described as “paralyzing.” It may continue even after treatment is complete.

If you’re a cancer survivor and feeling tired or even worse, even long after treatment, you are not alone. But you can do something about it.

About one-third of breast cancer survivors experience CRF for anywhere from a year to several years post-treatment. While there’s no conventional therapy to resolve it, studies are increasingly showing yoga can help.  Patients with different cancers report relief with exercise, specifically yoga.

Yoga designed especially for breast cancer survivors is helping women to catch a second wind.

In fact, a recent UCLA study found that three months after beginning this practice, women with post-treatment fatigue were still feeling more invigorated than before they began the exercise program. Not only do women become more energized, but they see improvement in mood and sleep; they are typically more relaxed, more aware, and more accepting of what life brings to them. All these attributes are so critical as we work toward continued mental and physical well being, and ultimately, our healing.

How does Breast Cancer Yoga target physical and emotional fatigue?

Breast Cancer Yoga helps relieve taxing fatigue by encouraging deep breathing, which increases oxygen consumption.  This deep breathing is then tied into each gentle flowing yoga movement.  Each pose is supported with props to allow for comfort and support.

Begin a yoga practice, slowly, and before long you will begin to experience positive energy, increased flexibility, and less pain.

Studies show that breast cancer survivors who practice restorative yoga poses regularly, sleep better, have less joint pain, more energy, mental clarity, increased range of motion (ROM), strength, increased resistance, and lower stress.

Exercising to gain energy and strength can be a catch all; it’s hard to exercise if you’re tired and weak but what’s nice about yoga, particularly restorative yoga, is that it doesn’t take the strength and stamina required to go out for a run or bike ride. Restorative poses can be done either in a reclined position or a supported seated position.

Technique and pacing are important.

Please don’t over do it, especially when you get started. Rather, gradually implement a daily yoga practice. Work to maintain a positive attitude and know through time and practice you will see improvement. You will actually find that recovery can be a positive, “feel good” experience. Please speak to your health care provider before starting an exercise program of any kind. For more on restorative yoga and to see more poses demonstrated, visit http://www.breastcanceryoga.com/

Natural Treatment of Cancer Background Information and Therapies

Natural Treatment of Cancer Background information and therapies

Doctors are trained to treat illness with medication (chemicals) and surgery (not with herbs and diets). Normally they will be unwilling to treat patients with natural products (as a result of their training and knowledge). If you have decided to take the alternative route you should be knowledgeable in natural treatments (this report gives you the necessary tools) and preferably have some family members on your side. Your doctor may be asked to keep an eye over you, as he/she could check on your health and do blood and urine tests. In this way your condition is objectively monitored and you will know if you are getting better and if your diet provides enough minerals, etc. If your doctor is unsympathetic or you need a doctor with a more holistic approach, look on the internet for medical associations in your country that concentrate on a natural approach.

On the other hand, also be sure to get an abundance of sleep and physical rest to conserve energy for healing and cleansing”
