What are the dendritic cells? Dendritic cells are phagocytes, a special type of immune cell found in tissues, such as the skin, which stimulate immune responses by presenting an antigen on its surface earlier than other cells of the immune system. The idea that the immune system has anti-cancer capabilities is not new. At the […]

In all my years of research looking for natural ways to reverse cancer, I hear many who claim having a strong immune system is the key. However, I beg to differ with this claim because of fibrin. Going back as far as 1666, the Italian biologist Marcello Malpighi discovered that our cells, when injured, form […]

I’ve always said that not all those involved in the cancer cash complex are horrible people. Some are truly looking for real answers and trying to save lives. Unfortunately, the use of toxic cancer therapies is what oncologists learn in medical school — and those blinders can be hard to shake. Still, I was shocked […]

The immune system is directly dependent upon the lymphatic system. In fact, if the flow of lymphatic materials slows, it weakens the immune system. The lymphatic system is sometimes referred to as the body’s second circulatory system. Its primary function is that of a defense mechanism and it is key to the body’s immune defenses. […]

In 1992, Hannibal Lecter left an indelible impression on moviegoers. While recounting the murder of a census worker to Dr. Clarice Starling, the antagonist in Silence of the Lambs noted, “I ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice chianti.” In real life, your liver is much more than part of a psychopath’s […]

A recent paper published in Science shows that Fusobacterium nucleatum, a bacterial species, is associated with a subset of colorectal cancers. [1] Basically, bacteria and cancer risk go hand-in-hand. Hmm, a microbe being responsible for cancer? Say it ain’t so! Cancer Tutor founder Webster Kehr has been a proponent of this fact for more than two […]

The natural substance Quercetin is attracting a lot of attention these days for its anti-aging and immune-boosting qualities. Quercetin is a plant-based flavonoid polyphenol and a super-antioxidant that is found in a broad spectrum of vegetables and fruits, everything from red onions and green tea to grape skins, apples and tomatoes. The fact that Quercetin […]

The lymphatic system is a vital but often ignored aspect which is essential for the body’s function. The primary components of the lymphatic system are the spleen, thymus, and lymph nodes. Together, these components serve to train and direct the body’s immune system cells to sites where they are needed. Lymph vessels form the channels […]

Dandelion, typically thought of as a pesky weed, can be traced back to 659 B.C. for its medicinal purposes. Dandelions are highly nutritious and are chock-full of vitamins, minerals, and fiber. [1] Scientifically known as Taraxacum officinale, the dandelion is a hardy perennial. This vibrant yellow flower has hundreds of species that can be found […]

Psychoneuroimmunology explores the connection between the mind, body and immune system. There have been several studies that support the idea that the connection between the brain and immune system affect the quality of life, and possibly the morbidity and mortality rates of cancer patients. According to one study, considerable work over the past decade has […]
