Ovarian Cancer – The Silent Killer
Ovarian cancer is frequently called the “silent” killer because many times there are no symptoms until the disease has progressed to an advanced stage.
One-third of women in America will get some form of cancer in their lifetime and approximately one and a half percent of those cases will be cancer involving one or both ovaries.
Initial symptoms of ovarian cancer are often mild, making this disease difficult to detect. Some early symptoms may include:
- Abnormal bleeding
- An unusual feeling of fullness or discomfort in the pelvic region
- Pain during sexual intercourse
- Swelling and pain of the abdomen
- Unexplainable indigestion, gas or bloating
Most of the time these symptoms do not indicate ovarian cancer.
What is Ovarian Cancer?
Ovarian cancer is cancer that starts in the cells that constitute the ovaries, including surface epithelial cells, germ cells and the sex cordstromal cells. Cancer cells that metastasize from other organ sites to the ovary, most commonly breast or colon cancers are not then considered to be ovarian cancer.
Considering the ovaries, there are several types of tumors that can start – some are benign, or non-cancerous and some are malignant or cancerous. The allopathic treatment options and the result for the person depend on the type of ovarian cancer and how far it has spread before it is diagnosed.
The non-invasive wholesome food approach includes eating these foods with a smile!
Drink half your body weight of water in ounces, daily. Example, drink 180 pounds divided by two. That equals 90 ounces of water daily. Divide that into eight or ten ounce glasses and that’s how many glasses you should drink, daily.
Include a quarter teaspoon of salt for every quart of water you drink. Make sure to use salt liberally with food. As long as you drink the water, you can include the salt.
Avoid caffeine or alcoholic drinks until you are healthy and can tolerate them again. These are diuretics and will definably dehydrate you. Every six ounces of caffeine or alcohol requires an additional ten to 12 ounces of water to re-hydrate you.
Apricot kernels have been recognised to prevent and cure cancer, even though the medical establishment has worked night and day and even lied to suppress it.
Apricot kernels are the best source of B17 (laetrile).
Vitamin B17 is found in several fruit seeds such as the apple, apricot, cherry, nectarine, orange and peach. It is located in some beans and many grasses such as wheat grass.
The hard wooden pit found in the middle of the apricot is not supposed to be thrown away. In fact, the wooden shell is strong armor protecting one of the most vital foods known to man, the seed.
It is one of the main courses of food in cultures such as the Abhasians, the Hunzas, the Navajo Indians and several more. Within these tribes there has never been a reported case of cancer, and there are doctors and scientists from the United States living within these tribes right now studying this phenomenon.
We don’t need to make the seed a main course at dinner, but we do need the equivalent of about seven apricots seeds per day to nearly guarantee a cancer-free life.
Other foods that contain vitamin B-17 include: bitter almonds, lima beans, millet, wheat grass and more.
In 1995, the bitter almond tree was banned from the United States. The kernel or seed of the bitter almond has the highest amounts of vitamin B17. Gosh, if you follow the money, you think you might discover something!
Green tea contains several nutritional chemicals known as polyphenols. One called EGCG has 20 times the radical quenching effect of Vitamin E, and 500 times the effect of vitamin C.
Garlic and Onions
Garlic and onions contain chemicals called allyl sulphides that help reduce the production of cancer causing chemicals.
Tomatoes contain nutritional “lycopene”.
Soy products contain chemicals called “isoflavones” that act as weak estrogens and do not leave much room for strong ones. Estrogen promotes rapid growth of breast cells in women. The best products for soy are miso, tamari and shoyu.
Broccoli, Cauliflower and Cabbage
Broccoli, cabbage and cauliflower all have “sulforaphane” that enhances production of phase II enzymes. Phase II enzymes remove carcinogens from the cell.
Fermented cabbage otherwise known as sauerkraut is healthier to eat than raw or cooked cabbage. Fermented cabbage produces several different compounds, known as isothiocyanates, which have been shown to prevent the growth of cancer, especially in the breast, colon, lung and liver.
Isothiocyanates are found in various foods, including cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, brussel sprouts and wasabi, a pungent Japanese condiment.
