Wellness Path To Cancer Prevention

After a certain age, every person fears getting cancer (and believe me, doctors are just as skittish as everyone else!). Being told, “I’m sorry you have cancer,” or “we need to find you a good oncologist,” is a moment you will remember forever. You leave the doctor’s office stunned by this information, wondering “how long have I got?”, and “what could I have done to prevent this?”.

The “how long?” often surprises people. With new advances in treatment, cancer patients are doing quite well these days.

The “what could I have done?” issue, and cancer prevention in general, is a major failing of the health care system. Painful as it is to say this, there’s no money in prevention. “Serious money” in health care is in cancer diagnosis (scoping, scans, surgical procedures) and cancer treatment (surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy). Yet most health insurance doesn’t cover genetic testing, nutritional counseling and the newer screening tools like Galleri; Walgreens still is a huge distributor of cigarettes; your kids are still eating brightly colored, sugary edibles that are likely carcinogenic chemicals.

We actually do know how to prevent most cancers; we just aren’t. You can look to the health care system for some, but not a lot of, guidance.

Let’s begin with some basic facts:

  1. Although steadily rising throughout the 20th century, the incidence of cancer seems to be leveling off, probably through smoking reduction and less exposure to significant carcinogens (cancer causing materials). Still, one person in three can expect to get cancer some time in their lives (up from one in four just twenty years ago).
  2. Cancer cells are always being formed in our bodies, but in normal circumstances are immediately destroyed by our immune systems. When some factor (advancing age, disease, toxins, our emotions) suppresses our immune systems, our risk for allowing cancer cells to multiply vastly increases. So maintaining healthy immune systems becomes a ‘given’ in your body’s milieu of cancer prevention tools.
  3. Our exposure to chemical substances never designed to be in our bodies has increased to the point where scientists truly have no idea what’s dangerous and what’s not. Moreover, two or more allegedly ‘safe’ chemicals can combine together and produce a third that may be quite dangerous.
  4. In summary, it is believed our bodies are being steadily challenged by known (or unknown) carcinogens. These accumulate in our cells because we never developed systems to efficiently detoxify them. Then, at some point, our ‘poisoned’ cells undergo change, somehow escape the watchful eye of the immune system, and begin growing out of control. This is cancer. If this situation weren’t bad enough, it’s just when we need it the most that our immune system falters and the cancer cells continue to grow and spread relentlessly.

In Phase II detoxication, the liver conjugates these metabolites to protective compounds— such as glucuronides, glutathione, sulfonates, and amino acids—that make them less harmful and easier to eliminate.*
