Regime for Breast Cancer prevention
(The following are news items and opinions. This is not medical advice.)
The regime is made of Turmeric, Green Tea and cruciferous vegetables.
Turmeric, which is a bright yellow orange colored spice, is a very helpful herb. It has tremendous anticancer properties, You can add one-quarter of a tablespoon at the end of cooking to almost any food, and or take Turmeric supplements. Turmeric has these tremendous properties in it that help to combat environmental estrogens on many different levels.
When one goes through the list of all the different things that stimulate the growth of breast cancer, the one thing you can’t do anything about are these environmental estrogens. They come in the form of pesticides, herbicides and a couple of different chemicals. When some of these chemicals get into your body, turmeric makes them behave less like estrogen. It blocks them from attaching to the estrogen receptor in the breast tissue.
Green Tea. You have to drink six to ten cups of green tea a day to help. Green tea has tremendous anticancer properties. It’s a very powerful anti-inflammatory with antioxidants just like turmeric. Green tea and turmeric actually have synergistic effects together, which means that each one makes the other more effective. Green tea will enhance the anticancer effects of turmeric by three times and turmeric will enhance the anticancer effects of green tea by eight times. So, here’s a cool thing about green tea: There are the pump mechanisms that will pump things into the cells and also pump things out of the cells, and green tea can affect those mechanisms.
They’ve found that if women are undergoing chemotherapy and drinking green tea, that it pumps more chemotherapy inside the tumor cells. They were finding three times the concentration of Adrimyacin, which is a common chemotherapeutic drug used for treating breast cancer, inside the tumor cells in the presence of green tea. And the green tea pumps it out of the normal cells. So, you get enhanced effectiveness while protecting against the organ damage. I think that every oncologist should know this.
Every woman should be taking it because you get those protective effects with it. Turmeric will shut off the blood supply to tumors and so does green tea. Without new blood vessels growing in and bringing nutrients and oxygen, tumors can’t grow any bigger.
Cruciferous Vegetables. Cruciferous vegetables are a family of vegetables that include broccoli, cauliflower, kale, Brussels sprouts which have a natural hormone detoxifier in them. They have tremendous heath benefits in addition to helping to protect against and fight breast cancer. In fact, women who eat the most cruciferous vegetables have a 40 percent lower incidence of breast cancer.
When the body breaks down estrogen in the liver, it will produce either a good kind of estrogen breakdown product or a bad kind. Just like we have a good and bad kind of cholesterol, we have a good and bad kind of estrogen. The indole-3-carbinol or DIM helps promote the good kind.
Like your main supply, the good kind is something that does not promote the growth of breast cancer and is protective. The bad kind is something that does promote the growth of it. If you eat cruciferous vegetables you can actually measure these breakdown products in your urine and see a positive change in it in 24 to 48 hours.
