Moreover,There are some astonishing things concerning oxygen antioxidants and toxins in the cancer process.Normally, oxygen helps with normal programmed cell death. That is due to the oxidative damage caused by reactive oxygen species (ROS). ROS are chemically reactive molecules containing oxygen. Examples include oxygen ions and peroxides. ROS are formed as a natural byproduct of the normal metabolism of oxygen. Cancer cells revert to a primitive form of respiration which uses glucose instead of oxygen. As a result, they no longer take in oxygen like healthy cells do.
It has been postulated by some that antioxidants interfere with chemo treatments. In the early stages of cancer antioxidants might interfere with ROS-induced programmed cell death, and that might make it more difficult for the chemo to kill off early stage cancer cells because chemo, as well as other cancer treatments, kills the least resistant cancer cells first. However, I do not think that such interference offsets the benefits of antioxidants in an overall anti-cancer protocol – and that is especially true once cancer gets beyond the early stages. Antioxidants scavenge up free radicals which otherwise damage cells and damaged cells are more prone to cancer and other diseases.
Actually, a great many natural things could be viewed as detrimental to chemo, since chemotherapy treatment is essentially making a bet that it might be able to poison out the cancer before it poisons out and kills the patient. It is often a losing bet. Chemo tries to kill cancer by damaging cancer cells. In the process it also damages and kills healthy cells – and it destroys the immune system which is the body’s first line of defense against cancer and other illness. Many of the best natural cancer alternatives try to defeat cancer by making the body healthier and better able to beat and ward off cancer naturally. The best natural alternatives also include the elimination and avoidance of toxins, the true primary cause of cancer.One of the most important things to remember about cancer is it is NOT a chemotherapy disease, it is NOT a radiation disease and it is not a Vitamin C disease. Cancer is actually a metabolic dysfunction tied to genetic mutations, and the first step in fighting it is on the metabolic level. This approach is what has helped our team achieve a unique and successful treatment strategy. Every cancer has a trigger: infections, chemical toxins or heavy metal toxins are a few of the main ones. Early changes are seen through metabolic shifts that ultimately cause mutation, continually pushing genetic changes, growth and spread throughout the life of the cancer.Cancer is a very difficult to understand disease and there are many misconceptions associated with it. But one of the main keys of understanding, treating and ultimately winning the raging war against cancer is none other than oxygen. Eighth on the periodic table, oxygen is responsible for the breathing of cells and are essential role in providing energy.However, cancerous, mutated cells thrive in anaerobic, or oxygen-lacking environments.
When growing, cancer cells show a change where they have lower levels of oxygen. This may stem from dysfunctions in the cell's mitochondria (known as cellular "factories" that play a major role in cell respiration). If these issues go unchecked, it leads to further complications and malfunctions in apoptosis (programmed cell death). You may remember from biology class, mitochondria have two main functions: energy creation and policing uncontrolled division of cells.
