A Wondrous Roots Case Study - Breast Cancer - What's Wrong With this Picture?
A classic case of medical care based in ignorance when it comes to breast cancer itself and Big Pharma-driven overaggressive treatment leading to devastating and unnecessary side effects.
AFTER her cancer was successfully removed, margins clear, "preventive" medicine ensued, to include:
Adriamycin and Cytoxan
Zolasta (which is for cancer metastasized to the bones!)
Treatment Side Effects
Radiation damage to connective tissue
Tamoxifen - to break down estrogen
Zoladex injections to induce menopause
Zofran prescribed to help with nausea
Gabapentin prescribed to help with neuropathy
Dexamethasone for swelling
KA-CHING!!!!! Oh yes, just keep feeding the coffers of Big Pharma's Cancer Industry...
Remember, this was all following surgery that removed the cancer that existed.
"Have YOU had your Preventive Chemo this year?"
Moving on, what was NEVER once investigated by my client's healthcare practitioners?
In this case, factors in the client's diet and lifestyle that may have contributed to the development of her breast cancer and need to be corrected to prevent recurrence:
Iodine deficiency - when it comes to breast cancer prevention, iodine breaks estrogen down to its benign, noncancerous form and then locks that form into the estrogen receptors in the body - including but not limited to the breasts - thereby blocking access to more toxic forms. Guess what? We are ALL iodine deficient if not supplementing.
Diet high in simple carbohydrates - cancer cells depend on glucose (sugar) for energy - don't feed them! Another problem with consuming breads, crackers, and the like is the bromine, which displaces iodine in the body.
Aspartame use - in this case diet soda
Lawn chemicals & plastics - both contain synthetic estrogens - one of the
Leaky gut - intestinal dysbiosis - gut bacteria is vitally involved with the breaking down of estrogen
Hormone imbalance - progesterone is dwarfed in our estrogen-dominant environment and bodies
Progesterone Receptor Positive Breast Cancer - Northrup - Do not be confused - this means your body can USE bio-identical progesterone to help counter the estrogen, NOT that progesterone is driving your cancer!
What to Do?
Dietary change - as above
Avoiding chemicals in plastics, pesticides, etc., as much as possible
Iodoral - iodine/potassium iodide - estrogen metabolism
Acetyl-l-glutathione - estrogen metabolism and detoxification; cancer prevention via its role in apoptosis of mutating cells
Selenium in multivitamin to work with glutathione and iodine
Dr. Axe Leaky Gut Repair & Probiotics - heal the GI tract to support estrogen metabolism
Beta glucan 1, 3-D to support the immune system in fighting cancer AND immune system balancing in the event she actually does have psoriatic arthritis
Formula C-Plus - cancer-fighting botanicals
Lymphatic System Support - to get the lymph moving for cancer prevention and to address the lymphedema caused by radiation
Gerovital GH3 - overall health support but specifically to help with neuropathy
Benfotiamine (fat soluble form of vitamin B1) - to help with neuropathy
Serrapeptase - enzyme made by the silk worm to address arthritis and scar tissue from radiation damage
IN CLOSING - Be SMART and don't cave into the pressure to get a flu shot - it's been particularly strong this week!
