Do you really know if you are cancer-free?
The doctor tells you the great news. “You are cancer-free. Nothing showed up on your scans and your bloodwork looks good. See you in a year for a checkup.” So goes the scenario, all over the world, until a few years later, when that “cancer-free” person discovers another lump or bump.
According to John Hopkins Medicine, the highest risk of recurrence for breast cancer is during the first two years following treatment. Routine testing such as mammograms, MRIs, and PET scans are the typical ways that traditional medicine monitors women after their treatment. However, randomized controlled trials have found that routine testing for distant metastatic disease provides no benefit in survival or health-related quality of life.
Not only is this type of testing costly but it is very damaging at the same time. CT scans and mammograms emit serious amounts of radiation that can lead to DNA damage in an already compromised and weak body. They also produce more breast cancer stem cells, which are often very resistant to treatment.
Fortunately, there are many sensitive blood tests that can help you keep a pulse on what is going on in your body before another lump or bump is found.
This is a blood test that measures the presence of the Enox 2 protein that only malignant cancer cells produce. No other cells in the body produce this type of protein, therefore, if the test determines the presence of the protein, you are producing cancer cells. Based on more than 20 years of research, the Oncoblot Test can detect 27 types of cancer in your body, as small as the size of a pin head!
Circulating Tumor Cells are cells that have been released from a tumor and are circulating in the blood stream. Keeping a measure on these cells can help you determine how aggressive you need to be in creating a protocol with evidence-based natural medicines. The Greece Test offers an “onco-count” which measures the number of CTC’s in the blood. Potent anti-cancer herbs such as blood root and foods like curcumin and broccoli sprouts have proven very effective in warding off cancer cells.
Cancer cells produce hormones that can be measured with sensitive technology. HCG is a broad spectrum tumor marker that is elevated about 80 percent of the time in all malignancies, regardless of where it is located. PHI is an enzymeA protein that speeds up chemical reactions in the body. that is one of the main causes of malignancy and cancer cell migration. It actually channels cells into low oxygen states and fermentation. It is an excellent marker for existing cancers.
If these tests are so powerful and helpful in early detection, why are they not offered by your traditional doctors? Great question! Without getting into the nitty-gritty of the multi-billion dollar cancer industry, traditional medicine is not real prevention and real early detection. They would not know what to do with it, since their approach is to affect visible tumors by cutting them out, radiating them and then eventually trying to poison them.
I have seen too many women suffer as a result of the recurrence of breast cancer after they have been told that they are “cancer-free.” Please share this information with someone that you know that may have been given that clean bill of health. You may be saving them a lot of heartache and future pain by ensuring that they are indeed cancer-free.
