I have been working with several different type of cancer patients over the years and here are some of the things that can help one fight this disease. Many of you have chosen not to go the surgical route so this section is dedicated to you! 🙂 Below is a lot of information that I know will help you in your battle. Always remember that a fine blend of old fashioned ways and modern technology can help in many ways. So study and learn all you can. I pray this helps you.

Pro Fem progesterone cream is applied topically to the breast and is absorbed through the fat under the skin.  It is believed that progesterone can aid in lessening the risks of breast cancer. Make sure you are taking supplements for overall good health.  If you are not taking these basic supplements I would recommend doing so.

A couple of connections to raising your chances of getting breast cancer are: continuous use of dark hair dyes and too many medical x-rays. After surgery, care for women that have had surgery to remove cancer involves no moving or carrying of heavy objects.  They are to not wear tight, rubbing clothes and gloves and must stay out of the sun.  It may be possible for women whose lymph nodes were taken out to experience swelling of the arm or lymph edema on the same side.  This is because lymphatic fluid builds up.  This is not uncommon.  The build up may occur right after surgery or months (or even years) later.  Injuries, infection,  or overuse of the arm can trigger the swelling.  To avert possibly getting lymph edema, avoid having blood work, chemotherapy, or blood pressure checks done on the arm that has had surgery.  To keep the arm from developing stiffness, it may be recommended to do some easy arm exercise.  Check with your doctor immediately if you notice any unusual swelling, redness, or pain in the hand or arm.

If a person has locally advanced or metastatic breast cancer, a drug called capecitabine (Xeloda) has been approved for use.  Especially when none of the other acceptable treatments are attainable. The use of this drug is for patients whose cancer has proven resistant to other treatments.  It was noted that in some studies this drug did shrink the patients tumors.  As with most of these drugs there are side effects such as, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, fatigue, painful inflammation of the mouth, a painful rash and swelling of the hands and feet.  So far studies on whether or not DHEA can prevent breast cancer have shown conflicting evidence.  But studies being done on 7-keto DHEA are showing that it may be a better option to DHEA in the fight for a cure for breast cancer.  7-keto DHEA is not changed into testosterone or estrogens in the body. There is a pain drug available that is stronger than morphine and is available in a flavored sugar lozenge form  This drug is called fentanyl  and physicians are prescribing it for patients having severe pain. Beta carotene Importance: Very High  Antioxidants gets rid of free radicals.


Carotenoid complex (Betatene) Importance:  Antioxidant. Gets rid of free radicals.


Coenzyme Q10 Importance: Very High Comments: Enhances oxygen flow to cells.


Dimethylglycine (DMG) Importance:  Enhances oxygen flow to cells.


Essential fatty acids (black currant seed oil, borage oil, and flaxseed oil are recommended) Importance: Very  Helps with cell reproduction.


Garlic Importance:  Stimulates immune system.


Germanium Importance:  Stimulates immune system. Aids in cellular oxygenation. May inhibit cancer growth.


Proteolytic enzymes Importance:  Free radical scavenger.


Selenium Importance:  Free radical scavenger.


Shark Cartilage Importance:  Can stop tumor growth. Boosts immune system.


Superoxide dismutase (SOD) Importance: Kills free radicals. Can get injections under a physician’s care.


Vitamin A Importance:  Essential for healthy immune system.


Vitamin B complex Importance:  Enhances circulation and liver function. Helps in construction of red blood cells. Helps cells divide and function properly. Controls production of hormones and enzymes.


Vitamin B3 (niacin) Importance: : Enhances circulation and liver function. Helps in construction of red blood cells. Helps cells divide and function properly. Controls production of hormones and enzymes. Caution: Refrain from using niacin if you have gout, liver disorder, or high blood pressure.


Choline Importance: Decreases production of estrogen.


Brewer’s yeast Importance:  Provides B vitamins.


Vitamin C Importance:  Can help fight cancer.


Vitamin E Importance:  Lack of vitamin E may contribute to breast cancer.


Maitake Importance: May help stop growth and spread of cancerous tumors. Stimulates immune system.

These are some helpful herbs and supplements for this condition as well.

Astragalus Root & Echinacea  This combination of herbs work together to boost the functions of the immune system. Dosage: Alternate the use of each herb, not to exceed 7-10 days in a row. Cautions: If you have a fever, do not use astragalus.


Bilberry, burdock root, ginger, green tea, peppermint, and red clover:  These herbs work great as herbal teas, and the benefits far surpass those of regular tea and would not have caffeine.


Black cohosh, chasteberry, red clover, and turmeric herbs: These herbs have a component called phytoestrogens.  Phytoestrogens are similar to the body’s own estrogens; however, these herbs have the ability to block stronger estrogens that can cause more damage.  They have the ability to reside in the same places in the breast cells that the estrogens do which creates a hostile atmosphere for the estrogens so that the estrogens do not want to stick around.  Phytoestrogens can extend the time you have your period.  This has been reported to decrease how long a person is exposed to estrogens.


Burdock Root, Dandelion Root, Milk Thistle, and Red Clover: These herbs are reported to keep the bloodstream clean and free of toxins.  They will also shield the liver from harm.


Chaste Tree Berry, Ginseng, & Soy: Also known as vitex agnus-castus.  Can regulate erratic menstrual cycles, ease premenstrual complaints, ease breast pain, and may be able to slow down cancer cell growth in the breasts.  Ginseng & Soy may also prove to be helpful in stopping cancer cell growth.


Turmeric, Soy, & Green Tea: This herb is been heavily utilized in India for multiple ailments.  One of the benefits that has been reported is the ability to fight cancer cell generation.  In addition, genistein, which is found in Soy, may very well do the same.  The National Cancer Institute has an article regarding teas and cancer prevention.


Garlic: Among many other benefits that are just coming to light, garlic is a valuable nutrient to our bodies, one of which may be the ability to fight cancer.


Ginkgo biloba : Ginkgo comes to us from the Chinese.  The word Ginkgo means “silver apricot.”  Further research is being conducted on the benefits of ginkgo for poor circulation.  It is more notable for its use in cognitive improvement.


Licorice : Used to treat a variety of disorders boost the body’s ability to fight off harmful pathogens. Cautions: If you have been diagnosed with high blood pressure, it is recommended that you do not use this herb.  Also, treatment should be limited to only seven days in a row.


Silymarin (milk thistle extract) , The common weed, Milk Thistle, contains an ingredient called Silymarin which is an extract that contains an antioxidant.  Milk Thistle is good for detoxifying the liver and gallbladder while also be recognized as a possible treatment for the kidneys, brain, & other tissues from harmful toxins. Silymarin (alternate spelling) is being researched for possible benefits for breast cancer.

One of the keys here also is laughing and watching as many funny movies as you can an visualizing the disease being destroyed daily as well. The mind can help a lot. I have also see many cancer patients use cold processed cannabis as well with good results. This helps with pain and helping your appetite.
