Take protein rich food ---eggs, milk products, dry fruits, seeds, pulses, mutter, soya bean. Cereals, potatoes, sweet potatoes, plantains etc. Can be useful for gaining weight. Also take vegetables, greens and fruits. Have vigorous physical exercise to improve digestion and absorption of food as well as blood circulation. Eat at regular intervals. Threptin biscuits will be helpful. Homoeopathic treatment will be beneficial to increase weight for you.

I had taken still breast enlarging capsules for one month and stopped taking, later after two month I got lump in my left breast, the lump don't stay stuck at one place it moves up and down its been 5-6 months no cancer signs are detected. My physician detected it as lump of fats. I want to confirm that is there any side effects of still breast enlarging capsules and will it give me a breast cancer or its just a normal lump of fats.

Hello mam. Your concern is well taken. Nowadays there are many over the counter breast enlarging capsules which have the agents, not to be taken in young age. The content of these capsules varies a lot. So I would recommend you not to take such pills and also get to know the previous pills taken by you. The lump you are talking about might be a simple fibroadenoma which you can get it removed by simple small surgery. Less likely for it to be cancerous. But as recommended, the self examination and the screening will help you further from detecting such lesions. You can text me or consult me for any more clarifications.

Breast Cancer - Ayurvedic Herbs That Can Help Manage!

Breast Cancer - Ayurvedic Herbs That Can Help Manage!

If you are suffering from breast cancer, it is recommended that you undertake Ayurvedic measures for an effective and natural treatment. Breast cancer is a form of cancer that occurs in the cells of your breasts. The breast cells undergo abnormal growth and go out of control. This form of cancer is likely to occur in both women and men, although it is most common in women. A lot of breast cancer cases start from the ducts or lobes, while others start from the cellular lining of your milk ducts.

Ayurvedic view
According to the principles of Ayurveda, your body is based on the tridoshas, which include vata, pitta, and kapha.

  1. An imbalance in these doshas can lead to diseases and disruption in your health. Cancer occurs when an imbalance of all the three doshas is experienced.
  2. An improper diet and lifestyle account for being the primary reason for this imbalance in doshas, leading to breast cancer.
  3. Your digestive fire is also affected, which leads to the accumulation of toxins, thereby blocking all the channels of your body.
  4. All these factors are collectively responsible for the development of breast cancer.

Ayurvedic treatment

  1. Ayurvedic treatment for breast cancer is very effective because of its natural approach.
  2. Without the use of any chemicals and radiation, you get efficient management by using Ayurvedic remedies for breast cancer.
  3. Your body functioning is enhanced without the concern of any negative effect on your health.
  4. Several Ayurvedic herbs are used for breast cancer treatment. These herbs help in controlling the abnormal growth of breast cells, and in the later stages of breast cancer, these also help in reducing pain.

The herbs play an important role in preventing the condition from spreading to other organs.

Ashwagandha

  • This powerful Ayurvedic herb contains natural rejuvenating properties for your body.
  • It also helps in eliminating stress, weakness and fatigue, which are associated with breast cancer.

Curcuma

  • This effective Ayurvedic herb contains several medicinal properties.
  • It is an antioxidant and helps in reducing free radicals from your body. This is beneficial for an improved health and immunity.
  • The herb is capable of dealing with toxins and infections, and is super effective in treating malignant cancers.

Kanhnaar Guggul

  • This is an Ayurvedic product, which is obtained by mixing several herbs such as amalaki, haritaki, ginger, kachnar bark and a lot more.
  • This is effective in maintaining healthy tissues and cells. It also stops the abnormal growth of cancerous cells.

It is important for you to visit a licensed and experienced Ayurvedic practitioner for getting the best Ayurvedic remedies for breast cancer treatment. This will ensure that you get the most effective remedies, based on your condition.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Probably you have fibroadenoma of breast which is a benign breast tumor. However cosult with a general surgeon for definite diagnosis and management.

Is it benign or cancer? Benign like fibroids may be conserved if asymptomatic or myomectomy or hysterectomy done for the same. If cancer needs staging and further treatment by surgery, radiation and chemotherapy according to the stage. Donot rely on diet to cure her. The tumor can grow and become inurrable if cancer. Feel free to share her Biopsy and imaging report directly with me so that I can guide you better.

High fat diet, prostate cancer prone

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician, Alappuzha
Diets high in saturated fat increase the risk of prostate cancer. As per a report from University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston published in the International Journal of Cancer:

• Men who consume high saturated animal fat diet are two times more likely to experience disease progression after prostate cancer surgery than men with lower saturated fat intake.

• There is also shorter "disease–free" survival time among obese men who eat high saturated fat diet compared with non–obese men consuming diets low in saturated fat.

• Men with a high saturated fat intake had the shortest survival time free of prostate cancer (19 months)

• Non–obese men with low fat intake survived the longest time free of the disease (46 months).

• Non–obese men with high intake and obese men with low intake had "disease–free" survival of 29 and 42 months, respectively.

Take home messages

• High saturated fat diet has been linked to cancer of the prostate

• Reducing saturated fat in the diet after prostate cancer surgery can help reduce the cancer progression.

• Cancer prostate has the same risk factors as that of heart blockages and both are linked to high saturated fat intake.

• With an increase in number of heart patients, a corresponding increase in prostate cancer patients is also seen in the society.

Though pt1, n0 is stage one cancer which after your surgery is now completely removed. As far as post operative radiation is concerned, it is given to reduce the chances of recurrence. However according to the present knowledge we have there is no advantage of radiation in stage 1 cancer. Having said that, there is a risk factor called lymph vascular invasion which is present in your case and sometimes in some cases, there is also something called perineural invasion present. Moreover in head neck cancers tongue malignancy is the most tricky. Hence some oncologist prefer radiation after surgery.
