Flax seeds prevent Breast Cancer

Flax seeds prevent Breast Cancer

Flaxseeds contain several beneficial plant compounds:

1. Lignans: Lignans are present in almost all plants, acting as both antioxidants and phytoestrogens. Flaxseeds are the richest known dietary source of lignans. These nutrients function as phytoestrogens.

Phytoestrogens are plant compounds that are similar to the female sex hormone estrogen. They have weak estrogenic and antioxidant properties

Lignans are fermented by bacteria in the digestive system and may reduce the growth of several cancers, especially hormone-sensitive cancers such as breast, uterus and prostate cancers.

They have been linked to a decreased risk of heart disease and metabolic syndrome, since they reduce the amount of fat and glucose in the blood.

Phytoestrogens also help lower blood pressure and reduce oxidative stress and inflammation in the arteries.

2. P-Coumaric Acid: This polyphenol is one of the main antioxidants found in flaxseeds.

3. Ferulic Acid: This antioxidant may help to prevent several chronic diseases.

4. Cyanogenic Glycosides: These substances may form compounds called thiocyanates in the body, which can impair thyroid function in some people.

5. Phytosterols: Related to cholesterol,phytosterols are found in the cell membranes of plants. They have been shown to have cholesterol-lowering effects in the body.

Flax Seeds are very easy to incorporate into the diet. Grinding them is the best way to make the most of their health benefits.

Know More About Breast Cancer!

Being diagnosed with cancer is a scary thought but with medical intervention, most breast cancer cases can be treated. The most common forms of treatment are radiation and chemotherapy. Along with this, there are many forms of alternative and complementary treatment that may be followed. This can help reduce the side effects of chemotherapy and radiation and boost the immune system. Here are some things you can do as an alternative and complementary form of treatment.

  1. Have a special dietHaving a healthy, well-balanced diet is necessary for everyone. This becomes more important when a person is recovering from cancer. Foods that have a high level of saturated fats and salt should be avoided. Intake of smoked, highly processed and pickled foods should also be reduced. On the other hand, you should increase your intake of vegetables, fruits and other foods derived directly from plants.
  2. Get your antioxidants: Antioxidants can protect a person from the damage caused by free radicals. This aids in the treatment of breast cancer and speeds up the healing process. Some of the antioxidants that can be beneficial in treating breast cancer are vitamins A, C and E, Lycopene and Beta Carotene. This can be found in wild blueberries, pecans, dark chocolate, kidney beans and goji berries. You can also increase your antioxidant consumption with dietary supplements. However, consult your doctor before taking any antioxidant supplements as it can interact with other drugs.
  3. Massage therapy: Massages can help relax the mind. They also have a number of other benefits. They are known as immunity boosters and can ease fatigue and pain. Thus a massage can also reduce the need for pain medication. It also helps increase the concentration of white blood cells in cases where women are being treated for stage I and stage II breast cancer.
  4. Acupuncture: Acupuncture is an alternative form of treatment that is considered part of traditional Chinese medicine. This involves the placement of sterile, needles that are very thin into specific points on the skin. These are then gently moved to stimulate the nervous system. In some cases, herbal supplements may also be incorporated into the treatment. Acupuncture is believed to help relieve fatigue, control vomiting and hot flashes and reduce pain.

It is important to note that these forms of treatment should not replace medical treatment but should be carried out along with it. You must also ensure that your doctor is aware of any supplements of alternative forms of treatment that you may be taking along with the medical treatment.

Premenstrual breast tenderness is a common problem, especially if you have fibroadenosis. So nothing to worry.

The treatment of mouth cancer depends on the site and Stage of the cancer. I usually ask for an imaging CT scan or MRI, sometimes only ultrasound) to know the extent of the disease and nodal spread. If advanced stage, then I also ask for a PET CT scan. If early stage, then surgery. If advanced, may need surgery followed by chemoradiation or chemotherapy followed by surgery and Chemoradiation. If very advanced stage, then only CTRT or palliative. If you want to further discuss the treatment, feel free to contact me directly.

I have limps in my both the breast. Non cancerous lumps. I've consulted cancer specialist. And have been operated once. This is the second time. And is going through homeopathic treatment which is not helping me out. Any other way which you can suggest I shall treat them? And why are these lumps happening? The reasons? Can you suggest somethings else den operating please?

If the lumps are non cancerous and are not growing in size or no. Then there is nothing to worry. There are certain medicines in allopathy which can be helpful which any surgeon can prescribe after examining you. If there is no relief with medicines then surgery is the option. The reason for this is usually hormonal changes which occur during this time in a girls life.

Age: 47 BUCCAL MUCOSA T4B CANCER TREATMENT: 3 CHEMO & 5 RADIO (TRIAL) DOCTOR ASSESSMENT: NOT TREATABLE (4 months max) No further chemo and radio MY QUESTION: what should I do, some say go for AYURVEDA please anyone give your honest opinion.

There are no trials to support the use of methotrexate in palliative care for advanced head and neck cancers. Only aim of treatment will be palliative care whose main aims will be pain free life, quality of life, life longevity and then tumor treatment in terms of size reduction. Chemotherapy will be low dose and targeted therapy can be used along with it. The chances of response are still low.

My mother is 60 age she has detected breast cancer before 2 years that time we done surgery and remove complete left breast also only chemotherapy done as per doctor no radiation is given now after 2 year again found infection near neck now doctor suggested only chemotherapy and radiotherapy, no need to surgery .he gives chemo of vivitra 440 mg injection please suggest we go with this or need to change treatment.

Hello, First we need to know that infection you are calling is cancer recurrence or not by taking biopsy. If it's cancer recurrence need to know has it spread elsewhere, if not then if feasible surgical excision followed by radiotherapy can be given. You can consult in our hospital in nagpur.
