When it comes to cancer genealogy, it’s important to set the record straight. There are two types of cell mutations, both of which initiate a different type of oncological condition. The first and by far the most widespread is the carcinoma, a malignant tumor that originates from transformations in epithelial cells. The second one, which is much less commonly encountered in humans, but, nevertheless, is still an extremely dangerous condition, is the sarcoma, cancer that originates from mutated cells of mesenchymal origin. Although today sarcomas are successfully treated with conventional therapies and are proven to be hugely susceptible to chemotherapy, there’s no reason for a premature sigh of relief. Sarcoma is still a potentially lethal condition that requires an instant action and close supervision during the course of the treatment.
While most of the carcinoma cancers have plenty of early indicators, detecting sarcoma in its early stages can often prove to be quite tricky. With no obvious signs of the disease, the patient might feel perfectly fine, apart from painless, numb lump appearing around the neck region or peculiar formations in one of the four limbs. The condition is usually recognized by a set of secondary symptoms such as vomiting, stomach pain, difficulty to breathe (sarcoma in lungs) and painfully swollen lymph nodes. Although in many cases the suspicious lump will most likely turn out to be a harmless cluster of fat known as lipoma, the checkup at your doctor’s office is by all means mandatory.
Preventing the Development Sarcoma
Before going into details of sarcoma cancer prevention, it has to be noted that unlike it is with its sibling condition (carcinoma), there is no definite or even approximate risk group to speak of when it comes to 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 – study the means of avoiding 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 factor, 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 the human organism. Added chemicals such as MSG and aspartame have been also attributed with the same characteristics. With this in mind, and for prophylactic purposes, it’s strongly recommended to rearrange one's diet in order to make it completely organic food-based. While it’s definitely not the most wallet-friendly option, the costs surely are justified considering the emotional and financial resources necessary for the conventional cancer therapy.
It is extremely important to keep an eye on some seemingly regular commercial household items. Some of these can contain carcinogens (substances that promote carcinogenesis) and as such should be discarded immediately. Dish and laundry detergents, different kinds of plastics and cosmetics as well as fire preventative chemicals are known to belong to this exact category of products.
Sure enough, one should also reconsider the use of a microwave. Keep in mind – the food you’re warming up there is essentially being “nuked” on a molecular level. There really can’t be anything healthy about it.
Alternative treatment for Sarcoma
Sarcoma is a type of cancer that typically occurs in of the four extremities, meaning that combating the disease occasionally can lead to a full-fledged amputation. As horrible as this option may sound, it is often the only way to prevent cancer from a further spread, once conventional chemotherapy fails to limit or annihilate the condition entirely. However, even with the prospect of getting rid of the disease, the option does not become even slightly more appealing. Even more so, despite the radical measures, it’s a method that does not eliminate the cause of the disease itself, paving a way to potential recurrence of cancer.
Is there any way to exclude this option? Well, one might need to resort to holistic practices in order to minimize the negative effects from the conventional therapies. This, again, mostly means changing or improving one’s dietary habitude.
Shifting to a mostly plant-based (preferably – organic) diet that completely excludes all food products with added sugar is a crucial step to take in order to create a benign environment for battling the disease. Remember – any diet that deviates from these guidelines will surely undermine the whole healing process.
Another widespread alternative remedy that’s known to boost patient’s well-being during the therapy course is regular juicing. Here it’s worth noting that the juicing should preferably be done with a slow speed masticating juicer. The two main ingredients? Carrots and red beets with apples as an additional flavor enhancer. For those brave enough, a coffee-based enema is another method on the list, however, purely for its detoxifying powers. The more toxins are discharged from the organism – the better while it’s entirely up to the patient to pick the preferable method of triggering the discharge.
Although the treatment can turn out to be emotionally and physically demanding, it is important to keep oneself in as good of a shape as possible. Regular exercises, a lot of walking and equally frequent rest breaks can significantly increase the patient’s wellness. Even though the biological specifics of the particular cancer make sarcoma’s alternative treatment somewhat difficult, it’s definitely the best complementary option one has. All of the mentioned remedies paired with conventional allopathic practices are sure to provide the desired results, namely, beating the disease with as little of damage as possible.
