Cancer Drugs Many Side Effects

Fighting Cancer Naturally and Traditionally

Cancer drugs have side effects which generate serious illnesses. Scientifically proven natural cancer fighting aids have zero side effects, there is no comparison. Obviously, I am not saying the world should entirely focus on natural cancer fighting agents and do away with all the medicine and drugs developed with chemicals. I just think if natural medicine was promoted more, especially as a precaution before cancer is developed, than I believe there is proven scientific evidence cancer will never show up and even be defeated naturally without any side effects when it is discovered. 

Prostate Cancer Treatments

Prostate cancer is one of the most common cancers in men with many natural methods to fight it as well as a high success rate with traditional medicine to decrease deaths (Elist). "Lycopene, Vitamin C & E, as well as Coenzyme Q10 are all antioxidant promoting substances which we can obtain from fresh fruits and vegetables to help prevent and fight prostate cancer" (Elist).  

Amur Cork Bark, a natural extract from the bark of a tree, is proven to actually kill prostate cancer cells. Drs and many research studies over the years have illustrated proven natural ways to prevent and destroy prostate cancer without any side effects. 

Within the National Cancer Institute is a list of the 38 of the drugs approved by the FDA for prostate cancer. Picking one of the drugs at random, Relugolix, here is the side effects list for the drug. 

  • Decreased Sexual Desire
  • Hot Flashes
  • Constipation
  • Heart Racing
  • Dizziness
  • Fainting
  • Many More!
The other 37 drugs approved by the FDA have side effects as well. People have described chemotherapy as a horrible experience, even worse than having cancer, not wanting to go through it sometimes even though it may save their life. 

Natural Breast Cancer Treatments

Breast cancer is the most popular form of cancer in women.
 Echinacea is a plant that raises a womans natural killer cells to fight breast cancer and may be used as a future anti-cancer treatment (Shareef et al.). 

Foods high in carotenoids like sweet potatoes, pumpkins, collard greens, yellow/orange/red bell peppers prevent malignant tumors from growing (DENVER SPORTS AND HOLISTIC MEDICINE). 

Black currant extract stops the spread of breast cancer cells. Curcumin reduces metastasis, angiogenesis, and kills off cancerous cells. (Chauhan)

Many drugs and traditional treatments exist to fight breast cancer. People survive breast cancer because of the treatments discovered by scientists. Many side effects are associated with these treatments and drugs unfortunately. 

Natural products have been collected all over the world as part of an initiative to research natural cancer drugs called the NCI program for Natural Products Discovery (NPNPD) (National Cancer Institute). 

Here is a quote about the program from the National Library of Medicine

 "A national program to advance natural product discovery technologies and facilitate the discovery of of structurally defined, validated lead molecules ready for translation will create a prefractioned library from over 125,000 natural product extracts with the aim of producing a publicly-accessible, HTS-amenable library of > 1,000,000 fractions"(Thornberg et al.). 

Is Cancer Being Fully Researched?

Natural cancer treatments with very few, if any, side effects have great scientific studies to really defeat the disease. Not only with breast and prostate cancer, but with all forms of cancer. I just hope politics does not play a role when it comes to really exploring the full research necessary to come up with the best cures, treatments, and vaccines for cancer. 

A lot of money is obviously poured into the research and treatments of cancer by traditional methods all over the world. Hopefully governments around the world do not neglect exhausting as much money and resources as they possibly can into researching the prevention and natural solutions to fight cancer. People suffering from the disease will have the best possible solutions and combinations available to get rid of the disease if this is the case.
