Title: Preventing Cancer Recurrence

PREVENTING CANCER RECURRENCE

Cancer doesn’t happen overnight nor by random chance. Cancer should be considered a wake-up call because it often results from years of eating a nutritionally deficient diet and poor lifestyle habits that create a cancer-friendly cellular environment of hypoxia, acidosis, hyponutrition, and inflammation.

A growing body of evidence supports the hypothesis that cancer is closely associated with accelerated aging, and by slowing the aging process, you may prevent the onset or recurrence of cancer and other chronic diseases. Slowing aging centers around changes in diet and lifestyle to improve mitochondrial function; promote effective immunity; increase microcirculation and tissue oxygenation; promote tissue alkalinity; enhance detoxification; improve gut health; reduce oxidative stress, inflammation, and exposure to environmental toxins; and promote sound sleep, physical fitness, and good mental health.

THE ROLE OF THE IMMUNE SYSTEM

An effective immune system can identify and destroy nascent (emerging) cancer cells in a process called immunosurveillance, which functions as our primary defense against cancer. Advancing age is associated with a decline in immunity, known as immunosenescence. Contributing factors include atrophy of the thymus gland and declining bone marrow activity, resulting in a reduction of functional cytotoxic T-cells (CTCs) and natural killer (NK) cells. Scientists found that a strong immune system, especially having ample and functional (immunocompetent) CTCs, may hold the key to longevity.

The key to cancer prevention lies in a healthy (competent) immune system. Lack of CTC and NK cell activity impairs immunosurveillance and leads to an accumulation of cancer cells, cancer stem cells, and senescent cancer cells. Recent scientific studies have shown that by using repurposed medicines, peptides, and plant-derived compounds, it may now be possible to reverse immunosenescence by regenerating functional thymus tissue and boosting the production of CTCs and stimulating NK cell production in the bone marrow.
