Natural Help for Cancer

Cancer is such a devastating disease, and I doubt any one of us doesn’t know someone near and dear who hasn’t been struck by it. But natural help for cancer is such a broad topic, and I know better than to think I can throw out a few suggestions and leave it at that. And unless I wanted to change this to a cancer fighting blog, there is no doing such a topic justice.

I do, however, want to share links or information with you as I come across it. I’m amazed at how some alternative medical and health professionals have been able to successfully fight cancer. One of these people happens to be my chiropractor. No, he doesn’t crack your back and make the tumors fall out. (Wouldn’t that be something?) But he does understand some amazing natural alternatives to chemotherapy and traditional cancer fighting methods. He knows about my blog, so recently he gave me some information about Dr. Kelley that is perfect to share here. Rather than attempt to tackle this mountain of valuable info, I’ll give you a series of links to check out.

Dr. Kelley’s Website: Features a video and an online book written by Dr. Kelley.

Dr. Joel Fuhrman’s Website: I’ve talked about Dr. Fuhrman a lot here in regards to nutrition. But he takes things much further in his practice by combating cancer successfully, time and time again.

American Metabolic Labs: I don’t have a website for them, but my chiropractor gives this address to any of his patients interested in cancer testing. If you’re a bit of a worry wart when it comes to cancer, you can get some peace of mind here. American Metabolic Labs does a full blood analysis to determine whether or not cancer cells exist in a body. It is a very thorough testing that traditional doctors don’t offer. Anyone can send in a blood sample for testing. I don’t know what the fees are, but I do have an address and phone number: 1818 Sheridan St. Hollywood FL 33020; (954) 929-4814.

  1. The prostate—a small gland that is integral to the male reproductive system—often undergoes changes in men as they age.
    Because the subject is often difficult to discuss, many men will simply try to ignore it.

    Did You Know…that Saw Palmetto extract is more effective than Proscar in the treatment for Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH)?

    According to an article published in The American Journal of Natural Medicine, results from a recent open multicenter study corroborate those from numerous double-blind, controlled studies showing that Saw Palmetto (Serenoa repens), standardized to contain 85% to 95% fatty acids and sterols, is an effective treatment for Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH).

    What Is Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH)?

    BPH is a non-cancerous enlargement of the prostate gland very common in older men. It causes increased nightly trips to the bathroom to empty the bladder, difficulty in urinating and occasional bladder obstruction. In addition to these frustrating symptoms, for some, BPH leads to cancer as well.

    In fact, the results produced in the trial once again demonstrated the Saw Palmetto extract’s superiority over the prescription drug Proscar, for the same condition.

    While Proscar typically takes up to a year to produce any significant benefit, Saw Palmetto extract produces better results in a much shorter period of time. Most patients achieve some relief of symptoms within the first 30 days of treatment with the Saw Palmetto extract.

    In a recent clinical trial involving a total of 305 patients, each patient was given a dosage of 160 mg (of the 85% to 95% extract) twice daily. The subjective evaluations of treatment made by patients after 45 and 90 days of treatment were quite favorable…
    * After 45 days, 83% of patients estimated that the extract was effective.
    * After 90 days, the percentage increased to 88%.

    Similarly, global evaluations made by physicians after 45 and 90 days demonstrated 81% and 88% effectiveness respectively. There were no serious adverse reactions reported. The objective evaluations demonstrated remarkable improvements in all measurements…
    * maximum urinary flow (ml/s) increased from 9.78 to 12.19
    * mean urinary flow rate (ml/s) increased from 5.83 to 7.41
    * prostatic volume (mm3) decreased from 40,348 to 36,246
    * the international prostate symptom score decreased from 19 to 12.4

    Proscar also causes a slight worsening of sexual function on average… Saw Palmetto extract shows no such side effects… in fact, Saw Palmetto extract has ben shown to increase libido.

    If you’re a man over 40, and you do not have any of these symptoms, it may still be a very good idea to supplement your diet with a comprehensive formula as a preventive measure.
