colon cancer

  1. This potent natural remedy SKYROCKETS colon cancer survival

    Colon cancer is one of the deadliest forms of cancers in the United States...and the third most common 

    But there’s a simple addition that can drastically help put the odds in your favor... 

    It’s a POTENT would-be cure that’s been at the heart of a heated debate. 

    Now, a new study pits mainstream medicine’s recommendation against what holistic doctors endorse 

    I’ll give you my take today—and you’ll leave with a way to proclaim VICTORY over this nasty disease.  

    Claim victory with daily vitamin D  

    Officially, colon cancer is the second leading cause of death due to cancer. That’s why it’s so important to overcome this disease.  

    Your chances at survival increase dramatically if you’re diagnosed early.  

    But a lead researcher at the Yale Cancer Center felt there has to be a backup plan. That’s where this latest study comes in…  

    It’s the comparison of the “suggested” daily value of vitamin D… and 4,000 IU per day.  

    Now, it should be noted the IoM, Institute of Medicine, recently upgraded their suggested daily value to 600 IU for adults everyone between one and 70. At 71, it gets bumped up to 800 IU.  

    Either way, the trial sought to see if an increased dose of vitamin D could lead to a higher survival rate.  

    The study discovered the suggested daily dose isn’t anywhere near the correct level...  

    Patients with colon cancer taking 4,000 IUs of daily vitamin D had a 36 percent less risk of death and/or disease progression 

    Even worse for the lower vitamin D group, their vitamin D levels weren’t affected AT ALL – meaning taking 400 IUs of vitamin D does absolutely nothing for your health! 

    Four thousand IUs can be difficult to get from sunshine alone, so it’s best to take a vitamin D supplement; it also helps you keep track of exactly how much you’re getting. 

    And if you want to take a shot at a “mega dose” of D to beat back colon cancer, make sure to do so in the care of a doctor.   

  2. Cure for colon cancer found… in Belgium?

    Now that fall is officially here, there's a new wave of fresh produce arriving at your local farmers market.

    Cool-weather veggies like Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, and broccoli (a.k.a. "cruciferous" vegetables) are on their way in.

    Now, that may sound like precisely the vegetable assortment that you’d hide under your mashed potatoes as a kid so you wouldn’t have to eat them.

    But give Brussels sprouts another shot.

    These tiny cabbages, first cultivated in ancient Rome but the pride of Belgium since the 13th century, are healthiest when they’re prepared in the most delicious way.

    And that may not be how you grew up eating them.

    You see, when you digest cruciferous veggies like Brussels sprouts, your gut naturally produces a compound called "indole-3-carbinol" (a.k.a. I3C).

    And in a new study, researchers in London found that eating a diet enriched with I3C rendered a group of mice IMMUNE to developing cancerous tumors in their guts.

    The control group without the I3C? Not so much.

    What's more, switching mice from the control diet to the I3C-enriched diet made their pre-existing cancerous tumors DISAPPEAR! And any remaining tumors were rendered nearly powerless.

    I3C works because it tamps down inflammation and repairs damaged cells in the lining of your gut.

    But that’s not the only way that cruciferous veggies like Brussels sprouts may shield you from cancer.

    All cruciferous veggies contain a compound called sulforaphane, which has been proven to slow the growth of multiple kinds of cancer, including cancers of the breast, mouth, and throat.

    So, if you want to beat colon cancer -- and other types of cancer for that matter -- it's time to put this Belgian export at the CENTER of your plate!

    Now, if you think that you hate Brussels sprouts, it’s because you’ve been eating them wrong. Growing up, you might’ve pushed a few boiled buds around on your plate – but that’s actually the worst way to cook them.

    Boiling steals not only the FLAVOR out of your cabbage cousins, but it also reduces the levels of sulforaphane.

    To make Brussels sprouts edible and a credible cancer killer, sauté them in a pan with some olive oil, garlic, and bacon.

    Plus, be sure to get regular colonoscopies, as they absolutely save lives.
