Every September, Medical Health Bodies & Government Organizations in America call attention to ovarian cancer. It is estimated that in 2013, over 22,000 women will be diagnosed with ovarian cancer. A further 14,000 will die as a result of the disease.
Whilst ovarian cancer is the 10th most common form of cancer to affect women, it is the 5th biggest killer. Data shows that, whilst the survival rates for other types of cancer continue to increase, the rates for ovarian cancer have not improved over the last 40 years.
At Alternative Cancer Treatment Mexico we use a unique approach to cancer which has seen the three year survival rates for women with ovarian cancer double. These statistics speak for themselves: together we can beat cancer.
This month we will give you more information about ovarian cancer, from spotting the symptoms, to things you can do to reduce your risks of ovarian cancer. By raising awareness of this disease we can help women all over the world, aiding quicker diagnosis and offering a more effective treatment than conventional ovarian cancer treatment.
About Ovarian Cancer
Ovarian Cancer starts in the ovaries, the glands in a woman’s reproductive system that produce eggs. The ovaries are also the primary source of the female hormones estrogen and progesterone. Ovaries are made of three different kind of cells, epithelial cells, found on the outside of the ovary, germ cells, found inside the ovary & which develop to become the egg (ova), and stromal cells, which form the structure of the ovary and which are responsible for most of the hormone production.
Each of these cell types can develop a tumor and form the basis of the three types of ovarian tumor: epithelial tumors, germ cell tumors and stromal tumors. Usually these tumors are benign, which means that they are non-cancerous. In cases like this, the tumor can be treated by removing either the affected part of the ovary or the whole ovary.
If a tumor is not benign, it is classified as either malignant or of low malignant potential. These need to be treated to prevent the tumors from spreading to other parts of the body.
Alternative Ovarian Cancer Treatment
The Functional Oncology Program is an alternative treatment approach to cancer that does more than address the disease; Functional Oncology examines the root causes of the disease, detoxifies the body, increases cellular health and boosts the immune system. Additional cancer suppression is available via IPTLD, Insulin Potentiated Targeted Low Dose, which targets cancer cells and magnifies the impact of chemotherapy, allowing small doses of chemotherapy to be given. These small doses kill cancer cells, without damaging other healthy cells within the body.
