Anti-Cancer Diet

Dr. Michael Greger, the author of the best-selling book “How Not To Die”, was instrumental in both my recovery from stage 4, metastatic melanoma and my continued good health.  In this video, he explores the dramatic effects different nutritional strategies can have on cancer.  He confirms that 95% of cancers are caused by lifestyle and environmental choices and points to nutrition as having a whopping 35% effect on the prevention and cure of cancer.  Enjoy!

12 Amazing Foods That Prevent And Kill Cancer

The video below presents a collection of various foods that I have continually run across during my extensive research into cancer as being both preventive and curative.  I agree wholeheartedly with the list, with the exception of fatty fish.  I agree with the effect Omega-3 fatty acids found in fish have on cancer, but there are other risks with eating fish that I believe far outweigh the benefit.  In fact, fish get their Omega-3 from algae, so why not go directly to the source instead of exposing yourself to the risks associated with fish as an unnecessary intermediary?  There are vegan Omega-3 supplements that produce the important anti-cancer benefits, but without having to eat fish.   Click the link below:

How To Kill Cancer Stem Cells

Cancer stem cells are the Mother cells of all cancer and are responsible for giving birth to any new tumor-forming cancer cells in the body.  Unfortunately, the current standards of care within the established cancer healthcare community (radiation, surgery and chemotherapy) do not effectively deal with cancer stem cells and is the reason why most patients treated with these protocols will develop an even more aggressive cancer down the road.

In this video from the Beljanski Foundation, a combination of natural plant extracts demonstrates effective and impressive results in eliminating cancer stem cells. Click the link below:

Immunotherapy

What is immunotherapy?

Before discussing what types of cancer can be treated with immunotherapy, it may be helpful to first define immunotherapy. Simply put, immunotherapy (sometimes referred to as “biological therapy”) is a form of treatment that uses the patient’s own immune system to fight the disease.

So, how is immunotherapy administered? There are a variety of administration methods. Many immunotherapies are administered by injection — either into a vein (intravenously), under the skin (subcutaneously) or into a muscle (intramuscularly) — while others are introduced directly into the body cavity in which the tumor is located.

How does immunotherapy work to treat cancer?

Now that you’re aware of the immunotherapy definition, what is immunotherapy for cancer? Immunotherapy cancer treatment involves either:

  • Teaching the patient’s immune system how to recognize and destroy cancer cells
  • Strengthening the patient’s immune cells to help them destroy cancer cells
  • Providing the patient with the support needed to further enhance their immune response

Using immunotherapy for cancer treatment is a relatively recent advancement in the medical industry.

Types of immunotherapy

Immunotherapy treatment to treat cancer can take a number of different forms, including:

  • Adoptive cell transfer – This involves removing the patient’s T-cells, modifying them and then reinfusing them back into the patient’s body so that they can find and destroy cancer cells. For example, CAR T-Cell immunotherapy involves modifying T-cells with cancer-fighting chimeric antigen receptors. Another example is TIL (tumor-infiltrating lymphocyte) therapy where anti-cancer T cells are obtained from the tumor and re-infused into the patient.
  • Cytokine therapy – This relies on man-made versions of certain proteins found naturally within the body to stimulate the immune system.
  • Immune checkpoint inhibitors – These are drugs that help a patient’s immune system better recognize and destroy cancer cells.
  • Monoclonal antibody immunotherapy – This involves administering man-made monoclonal antibodies to the patient to attack and destroy specific parts of cancer cells.
  • Vaccines – More specifically, vaccines that stimulate the immune system and teach it how to work against cancer and certain other diseases. For example, the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine prevents patients from developing an infectious disease that would in turn have the potential to cause anal, cervical, penile or throat cancer.

What types of cancer can be treated with immunotherapy?

Research has shown that cancer immunotherapy may be used to treat the following malignancies:

Does immunotherapy work for everyone with these malignancies? Not necessarily. The question of who qualifies for immunotherapy is decided on a case-by-case basis, and a cancer patient’s physician will need to determine whether immunotherapy is appropriate based on their specific circumstances.

Immunotherapy vs. chemotherapy

Many people are unsure of the difference between chemotherapy and immunotherapy. Is immunotherapy chemo? In short, no. Immunotherapy involves harnessing the power of the patient’s own immune system to fight cancer. Chemotherapy, on the other hand, involves using drugs to directly destroy cancer cells, separate and apart from the patient’s immune response. In many cases, immunotherapy and chemotherapy will be used alongside each other, sometimes in combination with other treatment methods as well, such as surgery or radiation therapy.

Targeted therapy vs. immunotherapy

People also often wonder about the difference between targeted therapy and immunotherapy. Like chemotherapy, targeted therapy involves using drugs to attack cancer cells. So, in that way, it is dissimilar from immunotherapy, which involves enhancing the patient’s immune response, rather than directly attacking cancer. The difference between chemotherapy and targeted therapy lies in the type of cells being destroyed—while chemotherapy often damages healthy cells in the course of destroying cancer cells, targeted therapy is less likely to cause harm to normal, noncancerous cells.
