Alternative Methods to Help Cure Ovarian Cancer

Often known as a "silent killer," - ovarian cancer usually shows little to zero signs and symptoms of being present at an initial stage, and it is not usually until a later stage that the cancer gets diagnosed. This makes ovarian cancer a particularly nasty cancer to deal with at the best of times, and where surgery has been the favorite method of treatment for many years. However, today there are also various alternative treatment methods available to treat this type of cancer.

1. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) - is a very good example of an alternative treatment for ovarian cancer. It works by where the cancer patient is place within a hyperbaric oxygen chamber and exposed to 100% pure oxygen. In turn the oxygen is inhaled by the patient at an increased pressure rate of about 2.5 times more than that of the normal atmospheric pressure.

It is believed that the increase in which the pure oxygen is inhaled, coupled together with the pressure that is created at the time, allows for the red blood cells in the body to become hyper oxygenated by dissolving the fresh pure oxygen into the plasma (55% blood, water, proteins and other solutes) and thus having a curative effect on the patient's cancer, along with many other illnesses too.

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy may also help increase the effectiveness of certain types of antibiotics by helping them to perform better, along with stimulating new blood vessel growth which allows for an increment in the circulation of blood where it may otherwise be considered poor. Research has proved that this method of treatment may well cure ovarian cancer.

2. Chemotherapy - is another example of an alternative treatment, although it is on many occasions actually used as a compliment alongside traditional surgery. Chemotherapy can kill existing or remaining cancer cells that may be left behind after surgery, and although considered as an alternative treatment in this case, it does not go without some rather nasty side-effects.

Having been around for many years (an often first option consideration), it could be considered as being a rather vicious alternative to choose, as most alternatives are supposed to be less intrusive (or at least is it understood by many to be that way); however, often chemotherapy is actually considered as being a lesser evil that may well be necessary to help cure the cancer patient.

3. Quercetin (bioflavonoids) - is the last example of three for an alternative ovarian cancer treatment. Quercetin is abundant in anti-oxidant (a molecule that inhibits the oxidation of other molecules), anti-arthrogenic, and anti-carcinogenic (a substance that inhibits the development of cancer) properties which are proven agents with a strong ability to fight cancer. It is a type of glycoside chemical (a complex chemical compound found in many fruits and vegetables, but in particular red apples and red onions).

As a supplement, quercetin is not only beneficial for helping cure cancer, but also in preventing allergies, and decreasing body discomfort too. It also contains anti-depressant qualities. By eating plenty of red apples and onions, a cancer patient can-up their intake of quercetin quite considerably, resulting in the many beneficial effects that may otherwise have been ignored.

*** 12+ Year Old SENIOR ALERT!!! ***
There is no real known way to prevent ovarian cancer for sure; however, there are certain things that may help to significantly reduce the risks of being diagnosed with the disease. For example:

1. When a woman has taken the anti-contraceptive pill for more than 10-years, then the chances of being diagnosed with ovarian cancer drops significantly.

2. Tubal ligation, where the fallopian tubes are surgically tied to close them, has been known for many years to cut down the risks of developing the disease.

3. It is believed that the complete removal of one, or both of the fallopian tubes (salpingectomy, tubectomy) also cuts down the risks (a more recent practice).

4. Removal of the ovaries also cuts down the risks of getting ovarian cancer; however, it does increase the chances of being diagnosed with heart disease.

The removal of the ovaries is not usually considered as the best option for many women; however, it is used under certain circumstances where there may be a genetic or family history risk, although not usually when the patient is over 60 years.

Removal of the ovaries is a practice that has recently changed, as recent studies now indicate that the removal of even postmenopausal ovaries may cause more harm than good, as most ovarian cancer actually comes from the fallopian tubes.

Although this new evidence may indicate that removing the fallopian tubes completely would prevent the disease, it is not the case. As primary peritoneal cancer, can in many cases actually arise from the pelvis after ovary removal.

Where there are genetic abnormalities (BRCA or Lynch Syndrome [mutation]), or the risk from family history of ovarian cancer, then exceptions may well be considered, where both the fallopian tubes and the ovaries may be removed.

When genetic abnormalities are present, the risks of being diagnosed with ovarian cancer are extremely high, making the risk of being diagnosed with heart disease less of an issue, although it is still a serious consideration.

However, should a hysterectomy be considered for whatever reason, the removal of the fallopian tubes would almost certainly be recommended. There is some doubt as to where the removal of the ovaries would actually be beneficial as well.

It is not just a good idea, but it is also highly recommended that any woman concerned with the possibility that they may be at risk from developing ovarian cancer, speak with either their doctor, or a genetic counselor for advice.

Ayurvedic Treatment Options for Cervical Cancer

Over the last ten years, Ayurvedic medicine has been growing in popularity in North America, due in part to the work of Deepak Chopra, M.D., an Indian doctor, writer, and speaker who has both promoted its abilities, and influenced its use alongside modern-day medicines to help cure cancer. However, most people have not even heard of Ayurvedic medicine, let alone actually used it.

What is Ayurvedic medicine?

Originating from India, Ayurvedic medicine (Ayurveda) has been around for over 5,000 years. It emphasizes on re-establishing the body's balance through diet, life-style, exercise, and body cleansing; together with the health of the mind, body and spirit - and similar to Chinese medicine, it is a "whole medicine system." That is to say - it is based on both the theories and methods of preventing and treating health and illness.

How is Ayurvedic medicine prescribed?

In Ayurvedic medicine; it is believed that the tongue may offer certain clues to the areas of the body that may be out of balance (also the skin, lips, nails, and eyes are observed). This will allow for a practitioner to determine a person's balance of doshas (a person's individual differences [vata = space and air, kapha = water and earth, and pitta = fire and water]) or metabolic types.

Also the patient's prakuti (the constitution and essential nature of an individual) is determined to allow focus on restoring the balance of an imbalanced dosha (an imbalanced dosha is believed to interrupt the natural flow of an individual's prana [vital energy] caused by an impaired digestion due to a build-up of body waste). A method that has been successfully used to cure illnesses for an awful long time.

How is Ayurvedic medicine used to cure cancer?

Today, Ayurvedic medicine is being used to help treat cancer (specifically cervical cancer), where it aims at not just treating the cancer, but also treating its symptoms; together with preventing its spread, and reducing the side-effects that are commonly seen with modern-day medicines.

Different Ayurvedic medicines tackle different areas of an illness. For example: Arogya-Vardhini, Kanchnar-Guggulu, Mahamanjishthadi-Qadha, Punarnavadi-Guggulu, and Triphala-Guggulu, etc., are used to treat local tumors; whereas a type of medicated douche containing Triphala (3-fruits) and Yashtimadkuk (Glycerrhina glabra) is used to treat local ulcerations.

Other medicines that act on the rasa, rakta, and mansa dhatus ([tissues] three of the seven tissues that form different organs and body systems) include: Kutk (Picrorrhiza kurroa) and Indrayav (Holharrhina indica), etc., and are used to help prevent the metastases (spread) of cancer to other parts of the body.

Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera), Bala (Sida cordifolia), Nagbala (Sida humilis), and Shatavari (Asparagus racemosus), etc., are used to help improve the immunity of the body; whereas Ashwagandha, Shatavari, Kamadudha-Ras, Shankh-Vati, Laghu-Sutshekhar-Ras, and Vishwa (Zinziber officinale) are used to help either prevent or reduce the side-effects of modern-day medicines.

What success has Ayurvedic medicine had on cervical cancer?

The direct aim of Ayurvedic medicine is to treat the primary cervical tumor, and to prevent any metastases (also to treat metastases that has already taken place [if any]). Patients are administered medicines (some which have specific actions on the uterine and cervix) in high doses to attack the tumor and to act on the lymph and blood tissues which help prevent the metastases.

This high dosage, aggressive, and prolonged treatment (6 - 9 months) does seem to pull many cervical cancer sufferers into a state of remission (the treatment course has been successfully carried out [not meaning the cancer patient is no longer at risk from a recurrence of the disease, or has been cured]) where a noticeable quality of life and an improved survival rate has been documented.

However, there may actually be a certain amount of doubt as to whether Ayurvedic medicine can actually cure cervical cancer completely; although, there are positive indications to show it has a certain amount of ability to cure. As yet, there is still insufficient evidence to either confirm or deny Ayurvedic medicine's ability to be a suitable contender in the fight against cervical cancer.
