The ovaries are two oval reproductive glands which are part of the female reproductive system. They sit on either side of the uterus and are close to the fallopian tubes. The primary function of the ovaries is to secrete and release eggs. They also create and secrete hormones including estrogen and progesterone.
When ovarian cells change or begin to behave abnormally, cysts and tumors can begin to grow. Most ovarian cysts and tumors are non-cancerous. In some cases, tumors with precancerous cells can turn into ovarian cancer.
Ovarian cancer will start in one of three different types of cells found in the ovaries:
• epithelial cells
• stromal cells
• germ cells
Epithelial ovarian cancer is the most common type of ovarian cancer. The epithelial cells form the tissue that covers the ovaries.
Causes & Symptoms of Ovarian Cancer
Scientists are unsure what the cause of Ovarian cancer is, though there are accepted risk factors.
Risk factors of Ovarian cancer include:
• fertility drug use
• hormone replacement therapy use
• family history of ovarian, breast, or colorectal cancer
• personal history of breast cancer
• genetic conditions
• never being pregnant to term
Other possible risk factors include:
The early stages of ovarian cancer, most often, do not cause any symptoms. Some of the following symptoms can be caused by things other than ovarian cancer, so it is important to visit your physician for a proper diagnosis.
Recognizing the symptoms of ovarian cancer can help with early diagnosis.
Symptoms of Ovarian cancer include:
• abnormal vaginal bleeding
• pain in the lower abdomen
• abdominal bloating
• urinary urgency or frequency
• abdominal mass
• weight loss
• painful intercourse
Who Gets Ovarian Cancer
Ovarian cancer cases are usually found in women over 60 years of age. The risk rises with age. Women who have carried a baby to term before they were 26 years of age have a lower risk of ovarian cancer than those who have not. Further, the risk of ovarian cancer decreases with each successive full term pregnancy. Using oral contraceptives also lower the risk of ovarian cancer.
Prognosis if You Have Ovarian Cancer
The overall 5-year survival rate for all types of ovarian cancer combined is 45%. Women under 65 tend to have more positive outcomes than their older counterparts.
5 Year Survival Rates for ovarian cancer:
• Stage Ia, Ib – 92 percent
• Stage Ic – 85 percent
• Stage II – 70 to 78 percent
• Stage III – 39 to 59 percent
• Stage IV – 17 percent
Conventional medicine’s main types of treatment for Ovarian Cancer include:
• Radiation therapy
• Palliative therapy
The Dynamics of Ovarian Cancer
Ovarian cancer does not spread like other kinds of cancer. While most types of cancer spread to the cancer cells dividing, ovarian cancer also spreads by an additional mechanism which makes it more difficult to cure.
All cancer cells have unique microbes inside of them. When cancer cells divide, both of the resulting cancer cells contain these microbes. This is how all cancers spread. While there are microbes inside of all cancer cells, it appears from the evidence that for some reason, the microbes in ovarian cancer come outside of the cancer cells and move through the bloodstream and burrow into normal cells in another location of the body, making these new cells cancerous. So, while microbes are involved in all kinds of cancer, for ovarian cancer the microbes can be the major force behind the spreading of these cancers.
As if that weren't enough, while all cancer patients have massive amounts of microbes in their bloodstream and massive amounts of mycotoxins in their body (i.e. mycotoxins are the highly acidic waste products of these microbes), getting rid of these microbes for ovarian cancer is far more important than for normal types of cancer because of the way it spreads.
Nutrition-based cancer treatments (e.g. the Budwig, the Kelley, etc.), while excellent treatments, do not directly deal with these important microbes. For this reason, to stop the spreading of ovarian cancer, it is critical to deal with ALL microbes in the body because it is impossible to isolate and target the specific microbes that allow it to spread.
Ovarian cancer can be thought of as an iceberg. The visible part of the cancer is the moles, tumors, etc. The invisible part of cancer, perhaps the main part of cancer, are the “invisible” microbes in the bloodstream which are ready to create a new mole or tumor in another part of the body.
Treating ovarian cancer
Treating ovarian cancer with natural protocols involves three key issues.
First – Buying Time
The normal issue of “buying time,” meaning making sure the patient lives long enough to cure their cancer. This is especially important for ovarian cancer because it can spread so fast and can take so long to cure. Alkalinity, of course, is one way to slow down the spread of cancer because it slows down the microbes.
To understand the concept of “buying time,” consider this scenario:
1) Patient A has been given two months to live,
2) Cure “A” for Patient A takes six months to cure the patient.
Do you see the problem? Patient A will be dead before “Cure A” can “cure” him or her.
But what if another cancer protocol, called “B,” can extend the life of Patient A to eight months. Now we have this scenario:
1) Patient A has eight months to live,
2) “Cure A” for Patient A takes six months to “cure” the patient.
Now, “Cure A” has enough time to cure the patient.
That is what it means to “buy time” for the patient. You use a treatment that may or may not cure the cancer, such as alkaline nutrients or alkaline minerals, but as a minimum it extends the life of the patient by several months.
Second – Kill or revert cancer cells
Focus on killing the stationary cancer cells or reverting them into normal cells. Like most cancers, the main cancer cells are stationary.
Third – Stop it from spreading
The last issue is stopping the spreading of the cancer. While most cancers spread by cell division, these types of cancer can also spread via the bloodstream by microbes. Thus, the protocol must include things that address the massive numbers of microbes in the body, especially the bloodstream and the liver.
Protocols: Natural Treatments and Protocols for Ovarian Cancer
The recommended protocol for ovarian cancer is:
- Primary Protocol: High RF Frequency Protocol – High RF Frequency Protocol which is very, very microbe-oriented, which is the main reason it is chosen for ovarian cancer. The High RF Frequency Protocol's main purpose would be to deal with the symptoms of ovarian cancer and/or more quickly get rid of cancer cells or provide other redundancy (e.g. an additional way to get rid of the microbes).
- AND: Dirt Cheap Protocol – The Dirt Cheap Protocol was designed to be very anti-microbial. It is an inexpensive protocol.
- Required Treatment: Liver Flush – Remember, a liver cleanse (i.e. liver flush) is always required.
- Also Consider: Noni Juice, Raw Food Diet
Is the high cost protocol the best of the protocols? To some degree “you get what you pay for,” but if a person has a small budget and really does their homework, they can be successful totally getting rid of this kind of cancer using the High RF Frequency Protocol or even the Dirt Cheap Protocol. In other words, money is important but there are ways around a lack of funds.
So having a small budget is not a “death sentence,” it just means the patient has to work harder at understanding what they are dealing with and how to find inexpensive ways to accomplish what needs to be accomplished. My “Inexpensive Cancer Treatments” article is a good starting point, but a creative person can use Google (once they know what they need to achieve) to find many other inexpensive options to provide redundancy with the main protocol.
Don't forget the energy issues.
High RF Frequency Protocol
The High RF Frequency frequency generator has the frequency sets for not just devitalizing microorganisms but for energizing cells, which were designed from the “ground-up” to deal with energy issues. It is actually a “new school” protocol as it deals not only with the normal things (cancer cells, microbes, etc.) it also deals with energy and “root cause” of cancer.
For example, the High RF Frequency generator system can “balance the organs.” What does this mean? First, consider that if you removed every cell from your body, the only thing left on the floor would be blood (which has cells in it), other liquids, mercury (from your teeth), and perhaps other foreign objects. Even your hair and bones are made of cells. Think about it this way: you started life as a single fertilized egg. Nothing has been added to your body except what you eat. You are nothing but a collection of trillions of cells. Every organ in your body is composed of cells. Thus, by energizing cells you are also energizing organs.
Furthermore, by energizing ALL of the cells in all of the organs, the organs become “balanced” because they all have the same energy level. Either High RF frequency device also helps pump the lymph system to keep microbes from living there. And they do other things. When the organs are balanced, the microbes (and their mycotoxins) are gone, and the lymph system is clean, the immune system works much better. The immune system can then deal with the cancer.
This was actually demonstrated by Bob Beck. The only thing Dr. Beck did was clean microbes out of the bloodstream and lymph system. When he did that the immune system became supercharged and the immune system took care of the cancer cells.
The High RF Frequency Protocol goes beyond what the Bob Beck Protocol did, but no one would complain if someone added the Bob Beck Protocol to the High RF Frequency Protocol. It is something that can “add redundancy,” meaning when multiple treatments do the same thing, the job gets done quicker because of redundancy.
This High RF Frequency Protocol is especially important for those with cachexia as it energizes the cells. Weak cells caused by cachexia is a major cause of death among cancer patients. In addition, as cancer cells are killed by the High Frequency Protocol the amount of lactic acid in the bloodstream decreases because there are less cancer cells excreting lactic acid.
It is important to understand that the consultation part of this protocol is equally as important as the electromedicine part. The nutritional protocols (which are designed based on an analysis of each patient) are individually designed for each patient and their situation.
Consider a sample of some of things the nutritional side of this protocol deals with:
1) Alkalinity (several of the nutritional items will likely be alkaline);
2) Energize cells with nutrition (however, most of the energizing comes from electromedicine);
3) Kills microbes in the bloodstream;
4) Provides a strong liver/gallbladder cleanse (the liver is a breeding ground for microbes).
The patient is encouraged to have a personalized consultation with one of the High RF Frequeqncy Support team members recommended by CancerTutor. Usually, a medical doctor or other competent practitioner analyzes a blood sample or a health questionnaire. This tells them the “root cause” of the cancer (e.g. a weak liver led to a weak immune system). The protocol is then designed for the patient.
These consultations are necessary to pinpoint exactly what sequence of events led to the cancer as well as how to best deal with the “root cause” of the cancer. These consultants can guide you in knowing exactly what to do, in addition to the High Rf Frequency device, to eliminate your cancer, restore your immune system, restore the health of your organs, etc.
There are two different ways to use the High RF Frequency Protocol using either the linear or the oscillator powered amplifiers. Start by using the High RF Frequency Protocol by itself. This is an excellent cancer protocol that includes a tailored nutritional treatment that kills microbes in the organs in order to supercharge the immune system.
The High RF Frequency Generator with the oscillator amplifier and plasma ray tube (non-contact) costs about $4,700. The High RF Frequency Generator with Linear amplifier (contact) costs about $2,500. The cancer coaching consultation is recommended and costs extra. For those who would like to use one or both of these devices, plus other items if desired, there is an easy way to pay for the equipment without borrowing a dime.
Dirt Cheap Protocol
For those who simply cannot afford the High RF Frequency devices and treatment, the Dirt Cheap Protocol was designed to be highly anti-microbial. In other words, it was designed specifically for these types of cancer, though it can be used for any type of cancer. Read more on it here: Dirt Cheap Protocol
How to Prevent Ovarian Cancer
Discuss hormone replacement therapy and/or oral contraceptives and their risks and benefits with your doctor. If you plan on having children and your life situation allows, plan for full-term pregnancy before the age of 26. Avoid asbestos exposure. Maintain a healthy weight by being active and eating a healthy diet: vegetables; fruits; whole-grain bread, pasta, and cereals; fish; poultry; and beans. Also, you should limit animal protein, processed meat, and a diet high in fat.
The immune system contains many different types of “cells,” however, only a handful of these white blood cells actually kill cancer cells. It should be the intent of a person with cancer to focus on treatments that quickly increase the count of the cancer-killing white blood cells.
The second thing to note is that building the immune system is sometimes not the highest priority of those with cancer. People with only a few months to live should definitely take immune system building products — and focus more on the nutrients, foods and products that kill cancer cells directly, such as the Grape Cure, Noni Juice, Essiac Tea, etc. or revert the cancer cells into normal cells.
With rare exceptions, it is highly advisable to use natural substances to deal with the immune system to treat cancer, no matter what stage the cancer patient is in.
Immune System Health
A healthy immune system remains your body's best defense. Not only is a weak immune system a major reason patients have cancer — and cancer itself can further weaken the immune system.
Beta glucans help regulate the immune system, making it more efficient. In addition, beta glucans stimulate white blood cells (lymphocytes) that bind to tumors or viruses and release chemicals to destroy it.
Beta Glucan has been approved in Japan, Australia, South Korea, and Taiwan as an immunoadjuvant therapy for cancer. In fact, helping with cancer is just the beginning with Beta Glucan. There have thousands of studies showing the product can protect against infections, lower your cholesterol, lower blood sugar, reduce stress, increase your antibody production, heal wounds, help radiation burns, overcome mercury-induced immunosuppression (like Thimerosal, used as a preservative in vaccines), help with diabetes, and even naturally prevent metastasis (or the spreading of your cancer).
Harvard Medical School suggests following general good-health guidelines is the single best step you can take toward keeping your immune system strong and healthy:
• Don't smoke.
• Eat a diet high in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains, and low in saturated fat.
• Exercise regularly.
• Maintain a healthy weight.
• Control your blood pressure.
• If you drink alcohol, drink only in moderation.
• Get adequate sleep.
• Take steps to avoid infection, such as washing your hands frequently and cooking meats thoroughly.
• Get regular medical screening tests for people in your age group and risk category.
More Information: Building the Immune System
Your diet plays a role in a healthy immune system. The top vitamins your immune system needs to perform include:
• Vitamin C — helps to repair and regenerate tissues and aids in the absorption of iron
• Vitamin E — a powerful antioxidant that helps your body fight off infection
• Vitamin B6 — supports adrenal function and is necessary for key metabolic processes
• Vitamin A — aids immune function and helps provide a barrier against infections
• Vitamin D — modulates cell growth, promotes neuromuscular and immune function, and reduces inflammation
• Folate — key in development of red blood cells (a lack of Folate can make the body susceptible to cancer)
• Iron — helps your body carry oxygen to cells
• Selenium — slows the body's over-active responses to certain aggressive forms of cancer
• Zinc — slows the immune response and control inflammation in your body
