Ovarian Cancer Treatments

Causes of Ovarian Cancer:

Family history is a strong risk factor for Ovarian cancers, accounting for up to 10% of cases.  The more family members get it, the more likely others will.  Other risk factors for cancer include a weakened immune system due to injury, medicine, surgery or nutritional deficiencies. 

Signs And Symptoms of Ovarian Cancer:

With some Ovarian cancers, no symptoms will appear until later stages, but may be discovered through regular pelvic exam.  Pain or swelling in the abdomen, gas, bloating, constipation, vaginal bleeding after menopause are all symptoms of ovarian cancer.

Treatments for Ovarian Cancer:

Early stages of some types of Ovarian cancer can be cured.  Depending on the type and stage of cancer, the doctor may recommend partial or total hysterectomy, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, or an experimental treatment.  With some Ovarian cancers, surgery may still allow for child-bearing.  While some women who are at high risk try to prevent cancer by getting a hysterectomy, there is no evidence this strategy decreases the risk of cancer.

What You Can Do About Ovarian Cancer:

If you've been diagnosed with a malignant Cancer, always retest and get a second opinion from another doctor.  Once confirmed, work with your doctor to make sure nothing you do interferes with the medical treatment.  Get the specific diagnosis in writing, including the name and stage of the Cancer.  Search the National Cancer Institute and other websites to learn all that's being done for your cancer.  Print relevant pages and make a list of specific questions for your doctor.  Write down his answers and check them on the web. I know the doctor has a good education, but this is your health and your life.  The actions to help prevent Cancer below can often be used in stronger doses to fight cancer, but check with your doctor.

To help prevent Cancer:  If your family or lifestyle (see causes, above) puts you at a higher risk, you should consider these things essential to help prevent Cancer:  Follow a low fat diet with lots of fresh fruits and vegetables.  Fill your life with aerobic activity and exercise.  Make sure you're drinking enough water.  Supplement your diet with natural Multi-Vitamins and Multi-Minerals, along with extra doses of the following to strengthen your immune system:

Antioxidants; including Beta Carotene, Flavonoids, LycopeneVitamin A, Zinc, Vitamin E, Vitamin C and CoQ10.
Organic Germanium; 300-450mg divided into 3 doses a day.
Fiber; 12-15 grams extra from vegetable sources or supplements.
Garlic; 3 cloves per day.
Omega 3; 3 per day, 1 at beginning of each meal.
Lecithin; taken with the Omega 3.
Lipoic Acid

Total Healing:

Cancer is at best frightening, frustrating and worst, fatal.  We both know there are no guaranteed cures or quick fixes, whether medicine, nutrition, herbs or anything else.  Many illnesses are "incurable" from the medical standpoint.  Complete healing is possible...including mind, body and spirit...from God.  If you want God's help with this or any problem, go to Healing From God.
