Here, we have determined the efficacy ofmethanolic extracts of bittermelon
on colon cancer stem and progenitor cells. Both, whole fruit (BMW) and skin (BMSk) extracts showed significant inhibition of cell
proliferation and colony formation, with BMW showing greater efficacy. In addition, the cells were arrested at the S phase of cell
cycle.Moreover, BMW induced the cleavage of LC3B but not caspase 3/7, suggesting that the cells were undergoing autophagy and
not apoptosis. Further confirmation of autophagy was obtained when western blots showed reduced Bcl-2 and increased Beclin-1,
Atg 7 and 12 upon BMW treatment. BMW reduced cellular ATP levels coupled with activation of AMP activated protein kinase;
on the other hand, exogenous additions of ATP lead to revival of cell proliferation. Finally, BMW treatment results in a dose dependent reduction in the number and size of colonospheres. The extracts also decreased the expression of DCLK1 and Lgr5,
markers of quiescent, and activated stem cells. Taken together, these results suggest that the extracts of bitter melon can be an
effective preventive/therapeutic agent for colon cancer.
Alternative cancer treatment options A quick overview of the main theories about cancer treatment with diet, vitamins, antioxidants and many others. Which cancer treatment options work the best, what to avoid, which natural cancer treatment options are completely worthless, which natural cancer treatment options can actually kill you!
Photodynamic Therapy for Leukemia This link goes into detail on leukemia treated with photodynamic therapy. Leukemia is one of those nasty cancers that attacks children and conventional leukemia treatments just cause suffering with little to no hope of long term survival. A more natural treatment for leukemia increases the odds of success and brings real hope to leukemia patients. Leukemia does respond to some herbal remedies to a certain degree, but to mount an immune response to leukemia it is necessary to kill most or at least some leukemia with photodynamic therapy to release the leukemia epitopes.
Alternative Treatment for Lung Cancer Provides details on a few past treatments of lung cancer with photodynamic therapy. Lung cancer responds well to photodynamic therapy, even when there are lung cancer mets in the bones, lung cancer mets in the brain and conventional medicine has completely given up on you, it is possible to recover completely from lung cancer with alternative treatments. Lung cancer requires several adjuvants, four of which are only available from us. We always have good success with Lung cancer using our more natural cancer treatment.
Treating Colon Cancer successfully Reports on past colon cancer treatments with Photodynamic Therapy. Colon cancer often goes to the inside wall of the abdomen, and in that case conventional treatment for colon cancer has already lost the battle. Colon cancer also likes to go the the liver, and conventional treatment for liver mets is hopeless, that is when honest oncologists admit there is nothing they can do for you. We can treat liver mets with a harmless drink more effectively than conventional treatment, and our success rate with colon cancer is much higher than conventional treatment could even dream of.
Breast Cancer treatments What to avoid in breast cancer pre-care, if at all possible. What is the role of photodynamic therapy in breast cancer? How to best detect breast cancer, which breast cancer detection programs are dangerous, which breast cancer detection systems are most reliable. Does alternative treatment for breast cancer work? What side effects are there for alternative breast cancer treatment? Does PDT work for post salvage chest wall progression of breast cancer?
Prostate Cancer When to consider treating prostate cancer and what NOT to do. Fantastic rapid response of prostate cancer to photodynamic therapy. Visit this link for a video from a patient who had prostate cancer for 16 years and tried all other alternatives to no avail, but his prostate was returned to normal four days after photodynamic therapy for prostate cancer. While prostate cancer is not among the more lethal cancers, it does kill a lot of people and makes even more have a poor quality of life due to prostate complications.
Pancreatic Cancer is difficult to beat, but not impossible. Statistically conventional treatment for pancreatic cancer has essentially zero percent success, but some alternatives do okay. Pancreatic cancer treatment with chemotherapy does not improve survival time at all. What natural pancreatic cancer treatments work, how they work and how much benefit is there to natural pancreatic cancer treatment. With conventional treatment pancreatic cancer survival is 6 months, but there are many people who took a natural alternative route and are alive many years later with no pancreatic cancer.
Cancer Therapy General observations on cancer treatment success. We go into detail on this page about how to sort out which type of photodynamic therapy has the best chance of success, and we discuss the sensitizers used on alternative cancer therapy. The sensitizer is 90% of the battle, and we clearly have the best sensitizer for alternative cancer therapy.
Cure Cancer Is it even possible to cure cancer? How do we define a cancer cure? The FDA comes down hard on anyone that even uses the words cure and cancer in the same paragraph, but that is because conventional cancer treatment does not cure cancer, in fact it propogates cancer and makes it worse. It is not impossible to cure cancer, but in my opinion the only true cure comes from mounting an immune response so the body can cure itself.
Osteosarcoma Osteosarcoma, (bone cancer) like leukemia, is one of those nasty diseases that attacks our children and steals their childhood. Osteosarcoma does not respond to surgery, it is just a patch to buy time but it actually spreads the osteosarcoma. Chemotherapy does not work with osteosarcoma if it is even slightly advanced. Fortunately, osteosarcoma can be beaten with alternative cancer treatment. When osteosarcoma goes metastatic it becomes more difficult to manage, but a full immune response to osteosarcoma is possible and then the immune system hunts down the remaining osteosarcoma cells throughout the body.
Liver Cancer Some liver cancer actually originates in the liver, that is the primary site. Most liver cancer is metastatic liver cancer, originating in other parts of the body. In either case, alternative treatment is far safer for liver cancer, because the liver specializes in removing toxins from the body, and nothing is more toxic than chemotherapy. Liver cancer can be treated with alternative treatments including activating the immune system against it by killing the primary site, and we can also treat it with stunningly effective natural treatments using safe medications that you drink, with no side effects. Liver cancer does not have to be a death sentence, you can beat liver cancer with our help.
Brain cancer Primary brain cancer originates in the brain like the super deadly glioblastoma, but many brain tumors are metastatic having come from lung cancer or prostate cancer or breast cancer. Essentially any cancer can migrate to the brain. The metastatic brain tumors can be killed with natural cancer treatment just like the primary brain tumors. Glioblastoma is another thing altogether, far more difficult to kill type of brain cancer but we can manage it using some very special medications only we have. Even years ago we were able to triple the survival time of brain cancer patients with a high quality of life, and with our new adjuvants we are seeing brain cancer results better than ever before.
