Effective management of prostate cancer naturally

Prostate cancer is a type of cancer which usually affects men. Men who are over 50 and live in the western world have heard about this type of cancer. This is one of the most common forms of cancer and it kills more than 300,000 people every year. As the name says, prostate cancer is a carcinoma growth in the prostate gland which is located in the male reproductive system. In the most cases prostate cancer progress rather slowly, but the increasing the likelihood of early detection is important part for the treatment of this condition. There are some early symptoms of this condition such as pain or problems when urinating which are often mistaken for other conditions or they do not present at all. It is a very recommended for men who are over 40 to begin getting regular prostate exams to ensure that the cancerous nodes are not developing on the gland.

We know that one of the most dangerous aspects of prostate cancer is to spread to bones and nearby tissues from the prostate. If the cancer is detected and it is contained in the prostate gland, then surgery and chemotherapy can often be used successfully, but if the prostate cancer metastasizes and spreads, more comprehensive, targeted therapies are required and also the risk factors are increased. The causes of this type of cancer can range from genetic markers and poor dietary habits to medication intake, infections and lifestyle choices. This is a reason why many people are suggesting home remedies for prevention and treatment of this type of cancer and often they are in conjunction with more formal procedures if this type of cancer has been detected. Regular screening is also one of the most important lifestyle changes. Vitamin D3 also plays an important role in the prevention of cancer, but talk with your doctor about the recommended intake amount.

Home remedies for prostate cancer

Fish oil: Fish oil is rich in Omega – 3 fatty acids. This is a reason why we should add oily fish (salmon, mackerel and tuna) or fish oil supplements to our diets. We will have the good cholesterol from this home remedy which means that it will lower the risk of cancer [1].

Flaxseed: You should add this natural cure in your diet because it has many health benefits. It has high amounts of Omega – 3 fatty acids and lignans which can directly inhibit the growth and spread of the cancerous cells. Also, they will lower the inflammation throughout your body and the prostate is also included here. [2]

Pomegranate juice: It is known fact the fruit juices are associated with antioxidant content. The pomegranate juice has received attention in the cancer – studying cycles because it has ability to slow the spread of cancer in many parts of our bodies [3].

Yoga: It is believed that yoga is also a very effective natural method for cancer which is similar to meditation. It can rebalance the metabolism of our bodies. Also, it provides non – impact exercise, cleanse toxins and boost the function of our immune system. Yoga can improve your chances of preventing prostate cancer when it is performed with dietary and other lifestyle changes. [4]

Stinging nettle: This is one of the oldest natural cures for all concerns of the prostate gland in which are included prostatitis that is often a precursor to prostate cancer. You should use a supplement of stinging nettle as your natural treatment because this can help you to stay protected from the prostate cancer before it ever develops [5].

Lycopene: Lycopene is associated with the red color in many popular vegetables and fruits. This is also a powerful antioxidant which is linked to stop the spreading of the prostate cancer and even reversing cancerous growths including those from prostate cancer [6].

Cannabis oil: There are many studies in which is said that the cannabis oil has been connected to stop the spreading and development of cancer [7]. A gene which is known as ID-1 begins to spread in prostate cancer. Cannabis oil has cannabinoids which are able to inhibit the replication of the gene ID-1. This is very important step of the further prostate research. Cannabis oil is becoming more widely available because the true values of this natural cure are finally recognized. The use of this oil is restricted or banned in many countries so this is a reason why you should talk with your health specialist before you start using cannabis oil as your home remedy for prostate cancer.

Meditation: Eastern approaches to chronic disease like cancer are including mediation. It is believed that this natural treatment is able to improve your immune system, reduce stress hormones in your body and also naturally prevent the spread of cancerous cells. Studies about the meditation and its connection with healing of prostate cancer are mixed so this is a reason why you need to talk with your doctor before you start using meditation as your natural treatment for the prostate cancer.

Baking soda: There are some people who have said that when they have created a more alkaline setting in their bodies, they have successfully reversed the effects of the prostate cancer due to its composition – sodium bicarbonate. This composition of the baking soda has made more difficult for cancerous cells to proliferate in the imbalanced pH setting of the stomach of the individual who drank this natural remedy. That individual has said that this home remedy is not the most pleasant experience, but the baking soda has saved his life. [8]

Zinc: It is known fact that the zinc deficiency is directly correlated with a higher risk of prostate cancer. This is a reason why we should have enough zinc in our diets. We can boost our zinc intake by adding foods that are rich in zinc such as oysters, cheese, yogurt, poultry and beef. [9]

Cayenne pepper: Many people do not like the idea of chomping down on a burning hot cayenne pepper, but these powerful peppers have capsaicin which has a significant anti – proliferative effect on cancerous cells [10]. Also, this element is inducing tumor shrinkage and “starving” of cancerous cells. We should not ignore the proven health benefits of the cayenne pepper on the prostate cancer cells. You should take a glass of water and start using this home remedy.

Black cumin: Black cumin oil is an effective herbal remedy or traditional remedy. Also, it has some impressive and measurable effects against prostate cancer [11]. It has some anti – cancer and anti – tumor properties which dramatically can reduce the number of cancerous cells. This home remedy continues to grow in popularity.

Vitamin C: As we have said many times before, Vitamin C is one of the best natural cures which can be used for treating different conditions and also it can be used for the natural treatment of the prostate cancer. It will stimulate the immune system and also it will increase the production of white blood cells [12]. We know that the Vitamin C is the key component of the collagen which is needed for the damage and repair. Prostate cancer can be effectively slowed with some antioxidants which neutralize carcinoma. It is a very good idea to drink orange juice every day because in this way we are consuming Vitamin C in our diets and also we have an effective natural treatment for prostate cancer.

Soy: There are many experts who are trying to discover the link between soy products and cancer. On the other hand, there are other studies in which is showed that some populations which have high soy intake such as Japan and other Asian nations have a lower risk of getting prostate cancer. Soy have phytoestrogens which are known that are beneficial for women, but also there are some sayings in which is shown a link between this important substance and male prostate health. [13]

Probiotic foods and supplements: Probiotics are also known as good bacteria. They are microorganisms which can promote a natural balance in the intestinal microflora. The best way to add these products in your diet is to add them in their most natural state which is including raw milk products such as yogurt, kefir and cheese. Also, there are some studies in which is said that the probiotic supplementation may be able to stop the tumor growth. This is having a sense because 80% of our immune system is housed in our guts. Also, there are other studies in which is said that probiotics can improve the digestive function and mineral absorption. Also, they can aid in healing leaky gut which in the combination of the previous mentions can help you to prevent the cancer. [14]
