There are two types of cell mutations, both of which can produce a different type of cancer. The first and by far the most common is a carcinoma, a malignant tumor that originates from transformations in epithelial cells. The second one is a sarcoma, cancer that originates from mutated cells of mesenchymal origin.
While most of the carcinoma cancers have plenty of early indicators, detecting sarcoma in its early stages is uncommon. With no obvious signs of the disease, the patient might feel perfectly fine. The condition is usually detected by pain or numbness, or an incidental finding on an xray.
Preventing the development Sarcoma
The disease can affect people of all ages, though it’s been noted that such conditions as chondrosarcoma, leiomyosarcoma and gastrointestinal stromal cancer are more likely to be encountered in adults. While children are more prone to bone sarcomas, such as Ewing's sarcoma and osteosarcoma. This wide disparity, in turn, makes it hard to define the exact mechanisms that trigger the disease and therefore, identify the ways to avoid them. With that said, there are some tips to keep in mind.
Although sarcoma is still surrounded by a veil of mystery when it comes to its origins, apart from hereditary and genetic factors, sarcoma cancer, regardless of its location or genealogy, is widely believed to be a result of toxin consumption from our food and the environment while exposure to radiation is also considered a to be a major risk factor.
Even though the opinions on this vary, high consumption of GMO food products and added sugar are speculated to be somehow related to creating a sarcoma friendly environment in humans. Added chemicals such as MSG and aspartame have been also been suspected. With this in mind, and for prophylactic purposes, it’s recommended to incorporate a diet primarily of organic food. While it’s definitely not the most wallet friendly option, the costs are justified when compared to the emotional and financial resources required for cancer therapy.
It is important to keep an eye on some seemingly regular commercial household items. Some of these can contain carcinogens (substances that promote cancer) and as such should be discarded. Some dish and laundry detergents, different kinds of plastics and cosmetics as well as fire preventative chemicals are a few that are known to be harmful.
Alternative treatment for Sarcoma
Sarcoma is a type of cancer that typically occurs in the extremities, meaning that combating the disease occasionally can lead to a surgical amputation. However this option does not eliminate the cause of the disease itself, paving a way to potential recurrence of cancer.
Shifting to a mostly plant-based (preferably organic) diet that excludes food products with added sugar is a crucial step to take in order to create the right environment for battling the disease.
Another alternative remedy that’s known to boost patient’s well-being during the therapeutic course is regular vegetable juicing. Coffee enemas are effective for their detoxifying powers. The more toxins are discharged from the organism, the better it can fight the cancer. Regular exercises can significantly increase the patient’s wellness.
