Some of the industry's most sophisticated natural cancer supplements can play a supporting role in treatment protocols for cancer. More so they are being used as a form of ongoing preventative health-care against cancer.
The baby boomers generation is leading this charge due to their fear of spiraling cancer rates and their belief in recent advances in nutritional science.
Cancer patients are encouraged to take a proactive approach to researching all treatment options - conventional, complementary and alternative and not rely only on what their doctor/specialist tells them.
Although some doctors will endorse herbs and other natural cures for cancer, their hands are tied when it comes to prescribing natural supplements because natural remedies fall below they scope of the FDA.
Before we examine cancer supplements and the amazing natural ingredients they contain a word of caution to those already living with cancer.
Supplementation and anti-cancer diets/lifestyles have long been used as treatment options to conventional cancer treatments.
However, while numerous anti-cancer nutrients have been identified, please note that for some of these there is only preliminary or inconclusive research available to support their anti-cancer claims – encouraging as it may be. Much of this research has been on animal subjects. However for many of the more well known ones, which I'm sure you'll recognize in the lists below, the research has been done to confirm their efficacy in successfully addressing cancer and preventing it.
If cancer sufferers are interested in taking natural cancer supplements they should thoroughly examine the research available and then discuss this with their doctor and loved ones.
There are natural therapy doctors out there with amazing treatment records when it comes to treating cancer but the US FDA has a proven track record of going after any of these doctors if they become too mainstream or publicize anywhere their results in treating patients with cancer.
A tremendous body of cancer research exists with over 350 different types of alternative treatments and natural supplements to combat cancer. Many of these have been kept from the public by big Pharma etc or forced underground.
Based on my knowledge to date, I recommend anyone who would like to research or take a natural therapy approach to cancer to visit the truth about cancer.com website and in particular gain access to their 9 part doc series 'The Truth About Cancer : A Global Quest' which was released in April 2016.
This series release the most up to date , cutting edge information about defeating cancer and has over 100 interviews with doctors and healthcare professionals worldwide who have proven track records in their work.
After watching this series I believe that no person should fear dying from cancer.
Many cancer patients have discovered that supplementing their cancer treatments with natural ingredients is a significantly beneficial strategy in their fight to live with or overcome the disease.
There are a tremendous number of recorded stories out there of cancer patients being sent home after conventional treatments had failed, who claimed that if it was not for alternative medicines they would not have survived.
The intent of this article is not however to suggest that cancer sufferers initially take a supplementation approach as their only form of treatment. That decision can only be made after much research and discussion with loved ones.
The scope of this article is more aimed at educating people without cancer to use supplements containing a wide range of anti-cancer ingredients as a form of preventative health-care for cancer - using natural ingredients to prevent the cancer process from ever beginning, overwhelming the immune system and gaining a foothold in the body.
If you’re already taking a supplement for anti-cancer benefits please understand that no one nutrient in isolation is enough - you should not rely on single ingredient supplements.
Further down this page I’ll introduce you to a state of the art, multi nutrient health supplement containing dozens of anti-cancer ingredients.
The anti-cancer benefits of many nutrients look promising in treating and guarding against the onset of different types of cancers – particularly potent herbs and phytonutrients like Diindolyl Methane - DIM 3,3’- (found in broccoli) and 'Resveratrol' just to name two.
Prevention rather than cure is in my opinion the ultimate way to defeat cancer so you should absolutely make sure your dietary intake contains copious amounts of a wide range of anti-cancer nutrients every single day!
Let’s look at the best anti-cancer promoters.
The following 55 anti-cancer nutrients are supported by clinical studies - they are listed in no particular order. Some, naturally, are more potent and successful than others. Remember- no one nutrient can work in isolation!
The more of these you take in the better because some are far more effective than others so don't rely on just a small number of selected ones!!
Aim for the widest range possible to receive the most powerful anti-cancer benefits!!
In case you’re not sure – all of these nutrients are found in food. Now the question to ask yourself is this: – is that the food you regularly eat?
With the exception of the herbs, the majority of the rest of these anti-cancer promoters are found in vegetables and to a much lesser degree, fruits. I think most people are aware of that today.
Now, it’s well known what little quantities of vegetables are regularly included in most people’s 21st century diets. On-top of this we need to remember that the state of agricultural practices and food quality today, results in vegetables containing a significantly smaller amount of the nutrients which they did some 50 years back.
It's well documented that in western countries such as the USA and Australia, that a majority of people are taking in totally insufficient amounts of these anti-cancer promoters!
Women should be aiming for a minimum of 7 servings of fruits and (predominantly raw) veggies a day and for men it’s 9 servings
But that’s not easy to do with today's lifestyles and abundant poor food choices. Not to mention the exorbitant prices of the most healthiest foods, like organics.
This is where natural cancer supplements may help.
A premium quality health supplement, containing a broad spectrum of anti-cancer promoters in high potencies, ensures maximum prevention against cancer. This should be in conjunction with a good supply of fresh vegetables and fruits in your diet. Be sure to eat vegetables raw or lightly steamed as cooking destroys many of the nutrients.
These types of supplements enable you to get optimal amounts of anti-cancer promoters that you already take in through your regular food choices and adequate amounts of those that you don’t take in at all.
Multi ingredient health supplements from leading, well known companies contain the most beneficial anti-cancer nutrients (in higher potencies and dose amounts - key variables to check on!) and as I mentioned above there must be a very wide range of them to effectively target all the areas in your body where the different types of cancers can form.
As you’re no doubt aware there is a multitude of supplements in the market and regardless of whether they are formulated as natural cancer supplements, general health supplements or whatever, you know they are not all equal in quality or efficacy. (See my ingredient quality in nutritional supplements page).
Here are some criteria that highlight the best, safest and most effective quality supplements from the rest of the pack.
First off a natural cancer supplement must be science-based and have been formulated by a bio-scientist – not a physician or marketer!
The market is full of products poorly put together by unqualified people looking to make a quick buck off consumer’s lack of knowledge.
Secondly, the supplement company should manufacture its own products and control the manufacturing process through all stages. No contract manufacturing! Quality controls and testing protocols should be clearly set out on the company’s website.
To guarantee absolute safety, purity, and potency all raw materials must be sourced from GMP registered and audited facilities. Certificate of Analysis (COA) on file confirming their purity and potency and these should be available to the public on request.
To further ensure safety and ingredient amounts in accordance with label claims, a manufacturer must be cGMP compliant – this is the highest standard possible for the manufacture of nutritional supplements.
Only a handful of companies in the supplement industry manufacture to this level!
Finally the product should come with a 100% unconditional money back guarantee. The manufacturer must be prepared to stand by their product – this really separates the best from the rest!
Here is a true Mercedes Benz type supplement that meets all the criteria listed above. No other supplement, currently available, can match it and the manufacturer guarantees that.
From the list of 55 anti-cancer nutrients above Total Balance contains 43 of them!
And the potencies and dose amounts are VERY HIGH!
But 'Total Balance', as the name suggests, is far more than just a supplement aimed at cancer. It is a broad spectrum health supplement holistically aimed at total good health.
This powerhouse formula contains:
The various formulas within the Total Balance range use between 83 - 99 ingredients!
This symphony of synergized ingredients target and rejuvenate every organ and system in your body for overall wellness, real anti-aging benefits and potent disease protection.
Total Balance was created by a world renowned bio-scientist, hired by governments around the world to produce complex formulas that their own scientists could not (including brain formulas for the NASA space program).
