(NaturalNews) Researchers stated in the Journal Cell on Thursday, December 24, 2009, that tumors, besides metastasizing throughout the body, can actually re-seed themselves. They stated that this may be one explanation as to why a tumor reappears after being removed. The premise given is that circulating cancer cells can go back to their place of origin, recolonizing in the original tumor site. This process is called self-seeding. The repopulation of the tumor site with these aggressive cells enables the tumor to grow at a more rapid rate. The research team's focus in controlling these cells is our very immune system. A failed immune system plays a critical part in the re-seeding process. Tumor recurrence is the consequence of a failed immune system. Concentrating on the immune system is an integral part of preventing, not only metastasis, but also future recolonization of the primary tumor site. In doing so, all parts of a person`s lifestyle must be addressed which includes diet, exercise, providing the body with the needed vitamins and minerals, and taking the proper anti-cancer and immune strengthening supplements.
There are many reasons that an immune system becomes compromised. As people age, their immune system becomes weakened. Other contributing factors are:
Lack of Exercise
The first area to take into consideration is one`s diet. A healthy diet should consist of raw fruits and vegetables, nuts, roots and tubers. However, because of their sugar content, the emphasis should be on vegetables, while limiting fruits. Additionally, juicing has powerful health benefits that have been known to reverse disease.
Other effective natural healing alternatives that work on both killing cancer and strengthening the immune system are:
Oleander Extract: Although extremely toxic in its raw state, when properly made into an extract, it is extremely effective when addressing cancer and other health conditions. Not only does it contain cancer fighting properties, but it also has been found to have six times the immune stimulating activity compared to many of the immune stimulators known to man.
Curcumin is another highly proven cancer fighter and preventative.
Black Cumin Oil (Nigella Sativa) has been highly revered throughout history. Both the Bible and the Prophet Mohammed make reference to its healing qualities. Although it has been used in healing many conditions, it is highly effective when it comes to cancer. It is one of the few cancer fighters that have had success with regard to pancreatic cancer.
Cayenne Pepper Tincture, another effective anti-cancer agent, has been especially successful when dealing with prostate cancer.
Vitamin B-17 (Laetrile), although difficult to find, is another potent cancer fighter. The best source is apricot pits.
It is important to ensure that the body is provided with adequate amounts of iodine, selenium, magnesium, potassium, zinc, vitamin C, Calcium, and Vitamin D. Studies are proving the value of vitamin D not only in addressing cancer, but also in all types of health conditions.
Last but not least, our emotional state has everything to do with illness. Conflict, forgiveness, trauma, and grief should be resolved.
Nature`s medicine cabinet is full of options when addressing cancer. It is important to reiterate that when dealing with this disease; one must take his/her entire lifestyle into consideration. We cannot expect healing if we hold on to unhealthy habits in any area of our lives.
