Breast cancer is a very common disease as old as civilisation. The hereditary factor, respectively the transmission of this type of cancer by way of genes, is one of the main triggering factors of the disease.
Statistics and medical experience have shown that this type of cancer is also triggered by the prolonged administration of estrogen where menstruation has been stopped abruptly or where there has been an early onset of menopause.
There is a higher risk of cancer in women who have never delivered or breastfed. The balance between estrogen and progesterone is also an important factor in preventing benign and malignant mammary diseases. Progesterone is used with a prophylactic purpose. Normally, these two hormones are balanced in the body. Should the estrogen concentration increase or the progesterone decrease, there will be discomfort, a condition known as estrogen dominance. The increase of the estrogen level is caused by alcohol consumption, obesity and a diet rich in fats. The women with a diet rich in meat are predisposed to breast cancer (the consumption of meat for preference biases the disorders of the estrogen molecular hormones). Fat rich foods damage the body in still another way, e.g. the excessive consumption of fat foods will deteriorate the cells. Once the genetic information has been degraded, the dysfunctional cells die or they may change in their attempt of regenerating themselves after the damage caused by fats. In this regeneration attempt, the cells may turn into cancer cells.
The liver is open to estrogen elimination and exposed to other risk factors because it is overloaded with the toxins accumulated in the body daily. The processes of relieving the liver of estrogen and of purifying the liver tissue may be hindered by the excess of sugar and alcohol. The presence of the foreign chemical substances known as xenoestrogens in the body also helps triggering the malignant processes.
Another cause for the onset of breast cancer is the bad function of the lymphatic system which is responsible for the elimination of toxins from the human tissues. The lymphatic system is irreplaceable for the body’s immune system and it helps eliminating the xenoestrogens accumulating fat tissue in the breasts. Lymph, which removes the toxins from the cells, does not purify the blood because lymph circulation may be interrupted by muscle contraction or by an external intervention. A bra too tight slows lymph and blood circulation in the area of the breasts and causes serious damage. A tight bra, worn for almost 12 hours, predisposes to cancer.
The action of the ultraviolet rays upon the human body has also been acknowledged as a cancer factor. In the past, people didn’t know how long an exposure to ultraviolet the human body could bear. The modern woman is in possession of such data; the phenomenon can be kept under control and dealt with, provided that she should have regular medical checks.
Excessive exposure to the X-rays emitted by the Roentgen devices is another factor of cancer. Electric blankets , too, may help trigger the malignant process.
A number of studies have proven that, in particular cases, even mastocytosis, which occurs before the first menstrual cycle may be a triggering factor for breast cancer, taking into account that the body secretes only estrogen during this period.
The initial symptoms of breast cancer are the following: hardening of the tissue, formation of breast nodules or ruggedness (unevenness). Later there will be pains, open wounds, suppuration or mamelon discharges, as well as lymphatic nodules in the armpit. If the diagnosis of cancer is confirmed, it is very important to ascertain whether the focus has spread to the neighbouring lymph nodules, too; to see the size of the nodule; the tumor’s rate of growth and whether there are metastases in other tissues or organs of the body.
If the cancer is discovered in time and diagnosed at an early stage, healing is guaranteed. Allopathic medicine recommends radiotherapy, chemotherapy, treatments that are commonly translated by „cut and throw”. Allopathic medicine treats only the symptoms and the effects, and not in the least the generating factors. The traditional therapies approach the situation in a different way. The efficiency of the traditional therapies resides in their capacity of treating both the affected organ and the entire body, in order to prevent relapses. Breast cancer is curable by traditional therapies, such as acupuncture and herbal therapy. The treatments are individualized for each patient; they act at organic level by means of herbal mixtures in high dosages and by adjusting the alimentary habits and the lifestyle.
