An ingredient in beer might be a possible safe alternative to hormone treatment and breast cancer prevention method.
Well, drinking more beer won't do much for breast cancer prevention, but hops can.
An enriched hops extract can activate a chemical pathway in cells that could help to prevent breast cancer.
Natural supplements such as hops have become increasingly more popular among women for postmenopausal symptoms.
Although the potential for toxicity is still being studied, the benefits look promising. In the meantime, Xymogen has an aromatase inhibitor called Aromat8 - PN which has a similar effect and can be used safely with estrogen positive receptor cancers. Some of our patients take DIMension 3 and Hormone Protect while they are making big changes in their diet.
In an experiment, hops extract was applied to two different breast cells to see if it would effect estrogen metabolism which is a key mechanism is the progression of breast cancer. 6-prenylnarigenin (6-PN) increased a detoxification pathway in the cells linked to a lower risk of breast cancer; however it only showed a slight increase.
If your are living with breast cancer, ozone therapy could prove to be very beneficial to you.
It also provides "chemo clean-up" in the body and cellular detoxification clearing up the residue left behind in the body's tissues by chemotherapy.
Ozone therapies can be valuable adjunctive cancer care therapy and can be done in conjunction with chemo and radiation. Ozone therapy increases oxygen utilization allowing oxygen into every cell. Cancer hates oxygen and ozone kills cancer cells. Ozone has been proven to reduce ROS or reactive oxygen species which cause the formation of free radicals.
Chemotherapy and radiation cause oxidative stress and a host of side effects. Several cases published in the German literature show that ozone therapy combined with standard oncology produced positive effects, decreased side effects and created less resistance to chemotherapeutic drugs.
While chemo and radiation might be effective in individual cases it is not necessarily safe or affordable. Two of our every 5 patients who follow standard of care for cancer get diagnosed with a secondary cancer.
Ozone therapy is safe, effective and affordable. Ozone does not cause cancer.
