Alternative Treatment Options for Cancer

By Jessica Gonzalez | Health

According to a recent study, cancer is the second leading cause of death worldwide. In 2013, 8.2 million people died of cancer. Standard treatment options for cancer include various forms of Chemotherapy and Radiation. These treatments can be risky for a good portion of patients. Over the past decade more alternative treatment options have been proven effective. Sometimes its difficult for patients to discover these alternative treatments. Below is a list of several Alternative cancer treatments that could be effective for cancer patients. Its also very important that you discuss these treatments with your doctor.

 

Immunotherapy:

Immunotherapy has gained a positive perspective among cancer patients over the last several years. Immunotherapy uses the bodies immune system to fight cancer. The white blood cells in the body will strengthen and help kill cancer cells along with any other types of viruses in the body. Immunotherapies have three general categories. Each category helps stop cancer cells from mutating and helps the body react. In July of 2016 the FDA approved more Immunotherapy drugs. It is also noted that former President Jimmy Carter used immunotherapy in 2015 to treat his metastic melanoma cancer. Carter was cancer free after the treatment.

 

Diet

A healthy diet is a major step in cancer prevention and treatment. Many oncologists do not promote specific diets for cancers. Many medical professionals have remained neutral on whether a healthy diet can put cancer in remission. It has been proven that people who eat balanced diets and have no nutritional deficiencies have a better chance at preventing cancer. Also, staying away from processed meats like bacon, hot dogs, ham, and various cold cut meats can help prevent colon cancer by 18 percent according to the British Medical Journal.

 

CBD

Studies have shown, that CBD (cannabidiol) can help with the symptons and side-effects of cancer treatments. More and more physicians prescripe cbd capsules to their patients to help with all the unwanted and very stressful side effects of the most common treatment options. While the jury isn’t out on the effectiveness of CBD and CBD oils on cancer itself, it sure will help with a lot of the symptoms. More studies and human trials are needed in this sector to give a causal and conclusive statement. Time will tell – but it sure is a very interesting field to keep an eye on.

 

Dandelion Root

Researchers in Windsor, Ontario received a large grant of 217,000 in 2012. The grant was for research on an herb called dandelion root. The root is well known for various health purposes, but doctors remained skeptic about the herb killing cancer cells. The research has shown that dandelion root can kill cancer cells. A 72 year old man named John DiCarlo was suffering with leukemia and told by doctors that he was going to have a difficult time surviving. DiCarlo started drinking dandelion root tea which was suggessted by the cancer clinic. Four months later, DiCarlo was in remission. He credited the dandelion.

 

Tumeric

Tumeric is a natural anti inflammatory that has been proven to benefit from illness and strengthen the immune system. Turmeric has been shown by researchers to destroy various cancer cells in the body. Tumeric, in a study, was also shown to kill cancer stem cells. Also, no side effects were shown from the herb. The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center did a study in April of 2011. Researchers showed that Turmeric had the ability to kill cancer cells but also keep regular healthy cells free from damage.
