Pancreatic cancer is the fourth most dangerous cancer when it comes to mortality rates. It’s also a disease that tends to manifest itself insidiously. Without any conspicuous symptoms to speak of, but with a wide variety of signals that might indicate other serious conditions, pancreatic cancer usually only becomes noticeable once it’s advanced and hence already spread to the other parts of the body. A type of cancer that’s particularly common in the developed world, it’s also characterized by a very poor life expectancy. Well planned and implemented pancreatic cancer treatment is critical.
Tracking and treating Pancreatic cancer
Approximately 25% of cases are directly linked to smoking, making pancreatic cancer one of the most frequent oncological conditions amongst the tobacco consumer segment. Fortunately, quitting will help to reduce your risk. Studies show that another major contributor to the disease is obesity. Logically, diet and exercise lower risk. In fact, people who exercise regularly have half the risk of developing pancreatic cancer than those who have a passive lifestyle. Of course, another contributor to this, as you may already have imagined, is a sub-standard diet. In the case of pancreatic cancer, a proper diet should have an emphasis on plant-based foods. In practice, this means approximately 2 cups of vegetables and fruits every day. Fish, poultry and beans should replace red meat and processed meat products.
Alternative Pancreatic cancer treatment
There’s a rather wide selection of remedies one can consume as a part of natural treatment for pancreatic cancer. A type of mistletoe known as Viscum Album, while not necessarily a cure for the disease, is a powerful natural remedy that can significantly improve the overall life quality of the patient. One of the more interesting remedies on the map is the red beet. While it’s a well-known fact that it’s a healthy vegetable, little is heard about its capacities, once it’s combined with the conventional chemotherapy drug doxorubicin. As the research, published by College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences at Howard University in Washington DC, shows, the particular combination provides a synergy that actually increases the efficiency of the treatment. Another miraculous remedy, known as Holy Basil or Ocimum Sanctum, has been employed in the traditional Indian medicine for thousands of years. Recent studies, carried out at Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the University of Nebraska Medical Center, concluded that the extract found in its leaves actually inhibit the mechanisms responsible for the spread of pancreatic cancer cells. At this point, it may be too early to speculate on the role of Ocimum Sanctum in the future of pancreatic cancer treatment, but there’s certainly a great potential. Apart from these three, there’s also curcumin, genistein, low-dose naltrexone as well as wide range of traditional Chinese herbs. Next to the remedies patient can consume directly, there are some holistic and alternative therapies that can provide significant comfort when paired with allopathic procedures. Music therapy, Aloe Vera, Ayurveda medicine, naturopathy, acupuncture, chiropractic as well as some folk medicine practices that go hand in hand with conventional ones, can serve as a powerful complementary means of boosting the immune system and maintaining the body in its optimal shape.
Homeopathic treatment for Pancreatic cancer
Just like all holistic therapies in medicine, homeopathic treatment for pancreatic cancer requires a high level of individualization and should be planned according to the cause, location, and complaints of the patient. In addition to other homeopathic remedies used, EuroMed Foundation prepares a homeopathic remedy from the patient’s pathology slides, and uses the specific remedy to attack the patient’s cancer.
Each case requires a unique approach which applies to both selection and doses of homeopathic remedies. The patient should also keep in mind, that holistic approach in general, is aimed at recognizing and eliminating the underlying cause of the diagnosis. While allopathic methods tackle the disease directly, homeopathic methods combat the ailment in order to boost the spirit and physical wellness of the patient.
