natural cures for cancer

  1. Many lung tumors can be ignored

    Not all lung tumors will hurt you

    I don't care what you've been told elsewhere, cancer is NOT a death sentence, and treatment is NOT your only option.

    Fact is, many tumors are completely harmless. It's true of most prostate tumors and many breast tumors, as even the mainstream now admits, and it's even true of the so-called "deadliest" cancer.

    That's lung cancer, and new research confirms that at least a fifth of all cases are completely harmless. Not benign tumors, but true cancers that -- like many breast and prostate tumors -- grow so slowly they would never pose a threat.

    That means they don't need to be treated, either. But of course, they usually are -- and often with devastating results, because cancer treatments such as chemo, surgery and radiation can be worse than the disease.

    If you ask me, I believe many of the so-called cancer deaths -- including many of the 150,000 lung cancer deaths each year -- are caused by those treatments, and NOT the cancer itself.

    I'm not saying lung cancers never need treatment, mind you. But you'd be surprised at how often it doesn't -- and how many options you really have when it does.

    In some cases, the best approach may be to do nothing at all. In others, completely natural therapies can help ensure a harmless tumor remains harmless or even cure (yes, CURE) an aggressive one.

    That's why the first appointment you need to make after any cancer diagnosis isn't to the surgeon. It's to a naturopathic physician experienced in dealing with cancer cases.

    I recommend working with a member of the American College for Advancement in Medicine.

  2. Green tea compound can wipe out tumors

    Beating cancer with green tea

    The next big cancer "wonder drug" is sitting in your cupboard right now.

    You already know how green tea can help slash your risk of getting the disease in the first place. But now, researchers are on the verge of a breakthrough that could transform one of the antioxidants in green tea from a "risk reducer" to a cold-blooded killer.

    Killer of tumors, that is.

    The antioxidant is EGCG. That's short for epigallocatechin gallate, so let's stick to calling it EGCG, which we've always known is great at wiping out tumors.

    Trouble is, it's downright awful with directions.

    When EGCG is swallowed or delivered intravenously, it doesn't go right to the tumor. It goes everywhere -- getting so lost along the way that the little bit that eventually makes it to the scene of the cancer isn't nearly enough to put up a fight.

    Iron, on the other hand, makes a beeline for tumors -- and researchers have now found a way to attach EGCG to the protein that carries the iron.

    The result is a tumor-seeking missile.

    In a series of lab experiments, the new targeted treatment caused tumors to shrink and even vanish. In one test, 40 percent of skin tumors were wiped out while another 30 percent shrank -- all in the space of just a single month.

    Chemo only wishes it was that effective!

    Of course, that's an experiment in a lab. And since researchers are still tweaking this new approach, human trials could still be some ways off.

    In the meantime, brew yourself a cup of green tea -- it might not go right to the tumor, but it could still fight cancer, protect the heart, and even help you to live longer.
