Breast Cancer – How Stress & Inescapable Shock Causes Cancer

Cancer is only a physical symptom of underlying emotional stress on the body and the body’s cells. But how does emotional stress cause cancer in the body? And why does emotional stress only cause cancer in some people, while not in others?

For the majority of people, coping with stress and highly stressful or traumatic events or conflicts is dealt with, with relative ease. Although those in this larger group feel the devastating effects of stress, stressful events, trauma, and conflicts, including grief and loss – stressful events are seen as part of life’s challenges, life’s ups and downs, and they are for they most part anticipated and not completely unexpected. These people are able to move on with their lives quickly afterwards.

Those susceptible to cancer, are highly vulnerable to life’s stresses and trauma, and feel unable to cope when life throws a curve-ball their way. These people are perfectionists and live in fear of conflict, stress, trauma and loss and are deeply frightened of negative events “happening” to them. And when faced with a highly stressful or traumatic event they have not anticipated, which inevitably happens during their life, react adversely and are unable to cope.

They experience Inescapable Shock and remain deeply affected by the experience. They have difficulty in expressing their inner grief, their inner pain, their inner anger or resentment, and genuinely feel there is no way out of the pain they are feeling inside. And because their mind cannot fathom what has happened, and remains in a state of disbelief or denial, these inner painful feelings are continually perpetuated, shooting up stress hormone levels, lowering melatonin and adrenaline levels, causing a slow breakdown of the emotional reflex centre in the brain, and creating the beginning of cancer progression in the body.

When faced with a major trauma, the cancer personality feels trapped and unable to escape from the memory of the traumatic experience and the painful feelings of the experience. Stress hormone cortisol levels skyrocket and remain at high levels, directly suppressing the immune system, whose job it is to destroy cancer cells that exist in every human being. High stress levels generally means a person cannot sleep well, and cannot produce enough Melatonin during deep sleep. Melatonin is responsible for inhibiting cancer cell growth. This means cancer cells are now free to multiply. Adrenaline levels also skyrocket initially, but are then drained and depleted over time. This is especially bad news for the cancer personality.

Adrenaline is responsible for transporting sugar away from cells. And when there is too much sugar in cells of the body, the body becomes acidic. This means normal body cells cannot breathe properly because of low oxygen. Cancer cells thrive in a low oxygen state, as demonstrated by Nobel Prize winner Otto Warburg. Cancer cells also thrive on sugar to keep them alive. Put simply, too much internal stress causes a depletion of adrenalin, leads to too much sugar in the body, resulting in the perfect environment for cancer cells to thrive in the body.

For the cancer personality, the news of being diagnosed with cancer and the fear and uncertainty of death represents another Inescapable Shock, creating another spike in stress hormone cortisol levels, and a further drop in melatonin and adrenalin levels. There is also a further breakdown of the emotional reflex centre in the brain that causes cells in the corresponding organ to slowly breakdown and become cancerous.

Learned helplessness is a key aspect of the cancer personality when facing a perceived inescapable shock, and is a strong developmental factor of cancer. Researcher Madelon Visintainer took three groups of rats, one receiving mild escapable shock, another group receiving mild in-escapable shock, and the third no shock at all. She then implanted each rat with cancer cells that would normally result in 50% of the rats developing a tumour. Her results were astonishing.

Within a month, 50% of the rats not shocked at all had rejected the tumour; this was the normal ratio. As for the rats that mastered shock by pressing a bar to turn it off, 70% had rejected the tumour. But only 27% of the helpless rats, the rats that had experienced in-escapable shock, rejected the tumour. This study demonstrates those who feel there is no way out of their shock / loss are less likely to be able to reject tumours forming within their body, due to high levels of stress weakening the immune system. [Seligman, 1998, p.170]

Cancer occurs at the cellular level. And there are a number of factors that create stress on the body’s cells, causing them to become (1) depleted of adrenaline, (2) high in sugar and (3) low in oxygen, where they are more prone to mutate and become cancerous. The higher the sugar content of the cell caused by a depletion of adrenaline, and the lower the oxygen content, the greater the likelihood of normal cells mutating and becoming cancerous.

There are a number of factors that contribute to a normal cell becoming depleted of adrenaline, high in sugar and low in oxygen. Physiological stresses include (and are not limited to): Poor nutrition, Chemicals, Toxins, EMF Radiation, Parasites, Liver / Colon / Kidney disease, Lack of Exercise, etc. Psychological stresses include (and are not limited to): Inescapable Shock, Repressed Feelings, Depression, Isolation, Poor Sleep, Emotional Trauma, External Conflict, etc.

In the vast majority of those with cancer, there exists both a combination of psychological as well as physiological stresses that have contributed to the body’s cells becoming depleted of adrenaline, high in sugar and low in oxygen, causing them to mutate and become cancerous.

Lactoferrin: The Amazing Peptide That Fights Disease! Part 2

Cont from Part 1.

Anti-microbial effects

Probably lactoferrin’s best known role is as an iron binding protein. It’s referred to as hololactoferrin in its iron bound form and apolactoferrin in its iron depleted form. Studies have found it’s the apolactoferrin form that has the most powerful effects as an anti-microbial agent. Directly related to lactoferrin’s previously mentioned ability to suppress certain health degrading bacteria in the intestine, lactoferrin is a powerful anti-microbial that inhibits a wide range of pathogenic bacteria and other microbes. The mechanism appears to lie with lactoferrin’s ability to bind iron, as it is known to have an extremely high affinity for this metal. Many pathogenic bacteria need a supply of free iron to multiply-in the presence of lactoferrin, they are strongly inhibited or killed.

Extensive in-vitro (test tube) and in-vivo research with animals has shown lactoferrin to be a powerful anti-cancer agent.

One study looked at lactoferrin as a “natural antibiotic” and found that lactoferrin both in-vitro and in-vivo strongly inhibited the toxic bacteria helicobacter pylori. They stated “It is concluded that bovine (cows) lactoferrin has significant antimicrobial activity against helicobacter species in-vitro and in-vivo.”(16) Another study using both in-vitro and in-vivo methods added lactoferrin to the drinking water of mice and subjected them to the toxic microbe staphylococcal. The study found that the mice getting the lactoferrin as 2% of calories reduced kidney infections by 40% to 60% and reduced bacterial counts 5- to 12-fold. They concluded “the results suggest a potential for the use of lactoferrin as natural anti-bacterial proteins for preventing bacterial infections.”(17) Interestingly, some studies have found lactoferrin from cows to be more effective than lactoferrin from humans for anti-bacterial properties(18) (though it’s well established that human mothers milk confers a great deal of protection to the newborn due to many factors, including a high lactoferrin content). Several studies have found lactoferrin to inhibit a wide range of gram positive and gram negative bacteria, yeasts and even certain intestinal parasites. Cholera, escherichia coli, shigella flexneri, staphylococcus epidermidis, pseudomonas aeruginosa, candida albicans and others have all been found to be strongly or partially inhibited in the presence of lactoferrin.(19,20) (It should be noted not every microbe that is pathogenic to humans is suppressed by lactoferrin).

Maybe most promising and interesting, there is research that points to lactoferrin being able to improve the efficiency of antibiotic treatments in the fight against pathogenic microbes. Considering the out of control use of antibiotics and the rise in antibiotic resistant strains of “bad bugs,” this is very good news. Would the combination of lactoferrin and antibiotics be the knockout punch to certain bacteria that are not being killed by antibiotic treatments alone? More research is needed, but the evidence is very compelling.

Lactoferrin as an antioxidant

Finally, lactoferrin is an antioxidant that scavenges free iron, helping to prevent uncontrolled iron based free radical reactions, thus protecting certain cells from peroxidation. Though lactoferrin is both an iron scavenger and donor (depending on the cellular environment), it has been found to scavenge or donate iron at the appropriate times when the body is in need of the reaction. At normal physiological PH, lactoferrin binds iron tightly thus diminishing oxidative stress to tissues (from free radical production of iron). As would be expected, apolactoferrin, but not hololactoferrin, has been shown to prevent lipid peroxidation. However, there are times in fact when iron is needed as part of a controlled oxygen radical generating system by certain immune cells to kill microorganisms. Lactoferrin has been found to be an iron donor to this system under reduced PH conditions.

Several studies suggest lactoferrin reduces oxidative stress. Diseases such as cancer, heart diseases and AIDS are all closely related to oxidative stress either as a causative factor or as a factor in progression of the disease. One study that examined the role of whey proteins, multifermented whey proteins and lactoferrin in oxidative stress made the bold statement, “We can conclude that whey protein, lactoferrin and multifermented whey are good candidates as dietary inhibitors of oxidative stress and should be considered as potential medicinal foods in various pathologies as HIV infection and cancer.”(21) We couldn’t have said it better ourselves!

Conclusion

There is little doubt that lactoferrin is a major find and a potential breakthrough as a natural nontoxic treatment in an array of human ailments. Though a handful of companies are able to produce lactoferrin at this time, there is only one company producing the apolactoferrin (iron depleted) form in large quantity. Studies suggest that the superior form to supplement with is apolactoferrin.

5 Simple Tips For a Healthy Colon

A healthy colon can improve your body’s chances against common and serious diseases. The colon is the pathway by which our body’s waste products go through so keeping it in good condition is vital to preventing illnesses such as irritable bowel syndrome, constipation, fatigue and even cancer.

1. A poor dietary habit is one of the major factors that can cause damage to the colon. If most of your meals are lacking in fiber, chances are your colon isn’t functioning as well as it should be. Making changes in the way you eat is extremely important to colon health. Eat more foods that are rich in fiber. Examples are broccoli, green leafy vegetables, and fruits. It is best to take in up to five servings of fruits and vegetables a day. Meat, refined foods, and certain dairy products such as pasteurized milk should be taken in moderation. Processed foods and those high in preservatives, refined sugars and saturated fats should be avoided altogether.

2. Adequate fluid intake also makes for a healthy colon. Lack of water can lead to constipation which can, in turn, block the removal of body waste. Drink eight to ten glasses of water a day, or alternate it with fruit juices. Some people recommend juice fasting to help eliminate toxins from the body. Besides cleaning up your colon, juices also lower cholesterol levels. You can use either vegetables or fruit for juice fasting. Some of the best fruits to take in for fasting are apples, carrots, celery, tomatoes, and cucumber.

3. Because we might not be getting the proper amount of nutrients from the food we eat, it is a good idea to drink multivitamins as a supplement. Vitamins and minerals help maintain alkaline levels in our body and prevent colon problems. In particular, vitamin D and folic acid have been shown to have a positive effect on the prevention of colorectal cancer.

4. Regular exercise keeps your body organs functioning at their optimum levels and this includes your colon. Being active will also help maintain weight levels as excessive weight could also spell problems for the colon. Aim for 30 minutes of exercise at least three times a week and then gradually increase the duration and frequency according to your needs.

5. Having regular colon cleansing treatments is recommended. There are many types of colon treatments and one of the most popular is colonic hydrotherapy, also called colonic irrigation. Most patients claim that the treatment isn’t painful but if you’re still not convinced, a more natural way to go about it is to use herbs to cleanse your system. Herbal colon cleansing can come in the form of supplements or teas. GP

You’ll know your colon is healthy if you have regular bowel movements. See to it that you go at least once or twice a day. Other signs of a healthy colon include the following:

* blemish-free skin
* soft, long, and tubular feces
* the absence of bad breath
* effortless bowel movement
* bowel movement between 18 to 24 hours
* the absence of mucus or blood in the stools

Various ED responsible factors & treatment

Various such as spinal cord damage or injury in penile organ also cause ED. Similarly the treatment of various diseases also invites ED. People seeking for convenient treatment of ED use Kamagra that provides the quick and long lasting ED relief and enables you enjoy the love making session. It also increases sexual arousal and sensitivity to cause an erection in the natural manner.
Erectile dysfunction is an incapability to get or sustain strong erection throughout the intimacy session. It is also known as impotence. ED is common among men. It is experienced while times of stress. Although, frequent ED can be a sign of health issues that need treatment. It can also be linked with sentimental or relationship troubles that should be addressed by a professional. When a man is sexually simulated, nerves fire in your brain and travel across your spinal cord to the male reproductive organ. The muscles relax and blood travels into the blood vessels that results in hardening the organ. But it doesn’t go in this way among all men. Several diseases and various conditions and their treatment can lead to ED such as injuries, lifestyle choices and other physical factors. ED can usually be treated by using Kamagra pill taken one per day that is a suitable treatment of ED in men. Several diseases that cause ED are:
Diabetes: This chronic disease can damage the nerves and blood vessels that increase in getting an erection. When Diabetes has not been treated well for some time, it can cause erection problems in men.
Kidney disease: Kidney disease can affect the several health procedures in men such excretion of hormones, blood flow to organ and parts of your nervous system. It can also weaken your energy level and steal your intimacy pleasure. The medicines used for kidney disease treatment also cause erectile dysfunction.
Neurological disorders: Erection doesn’t occur without the participation of nervous system and diseases that interfere signals between your brain and sexual organ can cause ED. These diseases include stroke, Alzeimer, sclerosis etc.
Blood vessel disorders: vascular diseases can cause clogging of blood vessels that result in difficulty in erection. Athlerosclerosis, high blood pressure and high cholesterol are few common causes of erection dysfunction in men.
Prostate cancer: However prostate cancer doesn’t cause erection problems but its treatments result into temporary or sustained erection complexities.
Ed is not only caused by physical complexities of some treatments but there are several factors which invite it such as:
Surgery: Surgical treatments of prostate and bladder cancer can adversely affect nerves and tissues essential for erection. In few cases, the problem is treated within six to eighteen months but the damage is long term standing or persistent. For its treatment, Kamagra pills are used that help in regaining your erection.
Injuries: wounds to the pelvis, bladder, spinal cord an need surgical treatment that causes erectile dysfunction.
Hormone complexities: Testosterone and other hormones improve your sex drive and their imbalance can spoil your interest in love making. The causes may be pituitary gland tumours, kidney and liver disorder, depression and hormone treatment of prostate cancer.

Alternative Cancer Treatment – What Exactly is Breast Cancer?

According to most sources, breast cancer is ‘cancer of the breast tissue’. Not very helpful. But digging a little deeper makes the answer clear. Cancer is a malignant growth or tumor caused by abnormal or uncontrolled cell division. Normal cells become misshapen and grow too rapidly. The result is a mass or lump that continues to grow and may spread.

Not every breast lump is cancerous, in fact the majority of them are benign. They will reach a specific size and level off. They might be soft and filled with fluid- similar to cysts. These lumps could also be fibroadenomas that do not spread or grow. They could also be scar tissue or just hardened fat.

But a true cancer in breast tissues is malignant and serious. Nearly 90% are a type known as ductal carcinoma (sometimes called DCIS, ductal carcinoma in situ). Somewhat less than 10% of the rest are lobular carcinomas (LCIS). In both cases lumps may appear as a thickening in some part of the breast, or even in the armpit. Lymph nodes are located there and sometimes play a role in the development of the disease.

The American College of Physicians recommends self-examination beginning around age 20 and regular mammograms after age 40.

You shouldn’t be alarmed at every single breast change, however a significant alteration in the size or shape of the breast after maturity is a sign to look for. Fluid might also seep from the nipple that doesn’t resemble milk. If you have cancer the fluid will show itself as a form of pus, which indicates infection.

The nipple or areola could also alter in both size and shape.

Breast cancer develops in stages that mark the disease progression.

Stage 0 is the initial showing of the condition. Breast cancer is labeled Stage I when the tumor is fewer than 2cm thick and has not started to spread. At Stage II tumors are usually between 2-5cm thick and there could be other areas of the body that are also effected. If the disease reaches Stage III it has penetrated the chest wall. By this time the treatment is very difficult and the survival rate isn’t as great.

Stage IV is the most serious cancer stage. At this venue the cancer has begun to spread forming tumors that are secondary in other areas. They are similar to the initial growth. Cancers of this type are often very fatal.

Because of the stages of cancer, and health consequences that are present at each level, looking for treatment and diagnosis early is important. A simple lumpectomy is capable of curing the condition completely. If it progresses to the point that chemotherapy or radiation is necessary the odds of recovery are lower and the cure is usually as bad as the disease.

Much progress has be made over the past 40 years. The equipment available today allows for a much greater diagnosis. Treatments have also evolved to make the cure not as painful and more sure.

Cancer at any stage is definitely something to be concerned with, however there is a 95% survival rate for individual’s whose cancer is quickly identified and treated by Stage I. You have a greater chance of survival if you monitor yourself and get treatment quickly.

Flat Stomach Plan

Are you a pear or an apple? Ask your mirror. If your mirror does not hide the truth, you will come to know what really you look like a Pear or an Apple! Wow, a fantastic fruity figure!

Wake up before it is too late. Look at your bulging abdomen and fat laden thighs and hips or check the flab, stacked around you. Act now.

There are a number of ways which you can take up to fight these menacing belly bulges and get your flat stomach back. The most effective way is to start a healthy living and follow a well planned fitness-program. You will happily watch your tummy shrinking gradually!

Slash your weight. An overweight person having 34 or more BMI can be an easy prey of various health risks. Melt down the adipose tissues (fat tissues) stacked around your belly by yoga or other holistic methods. Selective and healthy eating habits can fight with hyperglycemia, elevated cholesterol, hypertension, cancer, cardiac malfunctioning, insulin resistance syndrome etc., some of which effectively contribute to an extra-large tummy.

Practice meditation everyday to keep your stress under control. It is evident that Cortisol, a stress related hormone, can stimulate fat storage in the abdomen. Increase your metabolic rate to target deeper muscles. Take up abdomen-exercises, aerobics, yoga, brisk walking, sit-ups etc to burn fat (but dont over-do).

Exercises, specifically meant for strengthening, toning and tightening of abdominal-muscles (like pelvic tilt, lift, twist etc) are very much effective to achieve an hour-glass figure. Start exercise at a moderate intensity which gradually shrinks the fat-stomach. But always consult a doctor or personal trainer about the work-out program suitable for you before kick-starting any physical exercise.

Harsh diet-plan can never help you to get a flat tummy in a jiffy. Rather it will cause health deterioration. Moreover, once you are back to your normal diet, the bulge also comes back. Healthy foods in smaller amounts and taken 4 to 5 times per day is much preferred than crash diets. Green vegetables, fresh fruits and juices should be included in your meals everyday. Reduce saturated-fats and sugar intake drastically.

Dont skip meals. It doesnt reduce belly-bulge. Also never consider food as a stress-buster or time-pass. They worsen the condition only. Give the highest priority to a healthy body with well-toned abdomen. Hence eat healthy, exercise right and stay happy to showcase a great look wearing a matchlessly flat-stomach.

14 Health Benefits For Taking Activated Zeolite Or Immune Detox

Activated Liquid Zeolite’s key health benefits. There are 14 key reasons why liquid zeolite is claimed to be such a unique and extraordinary food supplement:

1. Extremely safe and non-toxic: Extremely safe and on-toxic: liquid zeolite is completely natural and 100% non-toxic. It is totally eliminated from the body after 5 to 7 hours. Liquid zeolite has been safely used by pregnant women, nursing mothers and small children. Also safe to take with most medication, but always check with your doctor first.

2. Removes heavy metals: Liquid zeolite has the perfect molecular structure for capturing and removing heavy metals from the body, including mercury, cadmium, lead, arsenic, aluminium, tin and excess iron. It also removes radioactive metals like cesium and Strontium-90. The process begins immediately and takes approximately 4 to 6 weeks.

3. Removes pesticides, herbicides and dioxins: Although liquid zeolite is unable to remove these directly due to their negative or neutral charge, by reducing the toxic load to the liver, liver-induced glucuronidation, their main means of removal, is increased. As these chemicals are prime candidates for triggering cancer and disrupting hormone balances, even in low levels, it is very important that they are removed from the body as quickly as possible.

4. Reduces viral load: And once the heavy metal concentrations have been reduced, the zeolite latches on to viral pieces or components. Because viruses replicate by first manufacturing viral components and then assembling them into a complete virus, liquid zeolite, in essence, removes parts from the assembly line and blocks viral replication.

5. Reduces absorption of nitrosamines: Nitrosamines (or nitrates) are most commonly found in processed meats, and have been linked to pancreatic, stomach and colon cancer, as well as to Type II diabetes. Liquid zeolite captures nitrosamines in the digestive tract before they can be absorbed.

6. Helps buffer body pH to a healthy alkalinity: A slightly alkaline body pH (7.35 – 7.45) is essential for good health and optimal immune function. Liquid zeolite attracts and then buffers excess protons which cause acidity and in this way can help many conditions from acid reflux to Candida and arthritis.

7. Helps to buffer blood sugar: in the same way that liquid zeolite can buffer excess protons and thus help balance body pH, it can also buffer excess glucose by its negative charge and therefore helps reduce blood sugar spikes.

8. Helps reduce cancer risk: Evidence is accumulating that liquid zeolite not only removes toxins that can cause cancer (75% or more of cancers may be toxin-related), but can also destroy cancer cells directly by triggering the P-21 tumor repressor gene. [N.B. This does not mean that liquid zeolite is a cancer treatment per se, but rather that it is a useful supplement to integrate into a treatment program.]

9. Improves nutrient absorption: In the gastro-intestinal tract, the presence of liquid zeolite increases nutrient absorption and helps promote healthy gut microorganisms, decreasing the likelihood of stomach flus and infections.

10. Acts as a powerful antioxidant: The cage-like structure of liquid zeolite also traps free radical molecules, making it an effective antioxidant. [N.B. This does not mean that liquid zeolite is a substitute for more conventional antioxidants such as Vitamins C, E and A, lutein and selenium, all of which have other vital roles to play in the body.]

11. Reduces symptoms of allergies: Liquid zeolite captures some of the allergens and antigens that trigger allergies, migraines, and asthma, and helps to reduce symptoms.

12. Increases immune system function: Liquid zeolite does not stimulate the immune system, but allows it to function optimally by removing toxins, viruses, yeasts, bacteria and fungi which can depress immune function and interfere with hormones. Many people report feeling increased energy, clarity and vitality.

13. Helps prevent premature aging: Many people age prematurely due to a build-up of toxins which interferes with optimal metabolic function and cellular repair. By using it to remove this toxic overload, the body’s normal repair and regeneration mechanisms are free to work efficiently.

14. Extremely easy and pleasant to take: Most serious detox solutions are difficult to take (many are injected or given as an enema, or must be taken away from meals), taste unpleasant, and can leave a person feeling drained because they indiscriminately remove healthy metal ions as well. By contrast, liquid zeolite is a small bottle of tasteless liquid that can be taken with or without food and that removes only unhealthy ions.

True Bone Cancer – A Rare Form Of Malignancy!

INTRODUCTION: True bone cancer (aka primary bone cancer) affects over 2,000 people in the United States each year. Cancer that originates in the bone – primary bone cancer – is rare. Early diagnosis and treatment of this disease increases the likelihood of survival. Children and young people are more likely than adults to develop cancer of the bones. In the past, amputation was common for bone cancer in an arm or leg.

CAUSE: Most of the time, when people have cancer in their bones, it is caused by cancer that has spread from elsewhere in the body to the bones rather than actual cancer of bone cells.

TYPES: There are more than 100 types of cancer, and each type is named for the organ or tissue in which it begins. Certain types of cancers are particularly likely to spread to the bones. It is important to note that when these other types of cancer spread to the bone, they are still named for the tissue or organ where they arose and are not termed “bone” cancer.

Many different kinds of cancer are able to spread to the bones. The most common kinds of cancer that spread to the bones are lung, breast, prostate, thyroid, as well as kidney.

There are several types of sarcomas of the bone, depending upon the kind of bone tissue where the tumor developed. The most common types of primary bone cancer are osteosarcoma, Ewing’s sarcoma, and chondrosarcoma. Other, more rare types include fibrosarcoma, malignant giant cell tumor, and chordoma.

SYMPTOMS: The symptoms of bone malignancy tend to happen slowly and depend on the kind, location, and size of the tumor. Pain is the most frequent sign of bone cancer and doctors often use radiation therapy to shrink tumors to reduce the pressure, pain or other symptoms they may produce.

TREATMENT: Treatment depends on the kind of bone cancer, as well as its location, size and stage. It can involve chemotherapy with multiple drugs as well as radiation therapy and surgery to eliminate the primary tumor.

Treating cancer that has spread to the bones (metastatic cancer) depends on the form of cancer (the tissue where it originated) and the extent of the spread. As with other malignancies, treatment depends on the size, type, location and stage of the cancer, including whether it has metastasized to the lungs or other parts of your body, and your overall health.

Your doctor may suggest using radiation therapy at different times during your cancer treatment and for different reasons, such as before surgery to shrink a cancerous tumor or after surgery to stop the growth of any remaining cancer cells.

A well-coordinated team of doctors – including surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, and physical medicine and rehabilitation specialists who are familiar with treatment of sarcomas – is important for increasing the chance you’ll be able to have limb-sparing treatment. In some cases, chemotherapy may be the only treatment you need. More often, doctors use it in conjunction with other treatments, such as surgery or radiation, to improve results.

CONCLUSION: In contrast to cancers which have metastasized to the bone, real bone cancers are tumors that originate from the tissues of the bones. These malignancies, called primary bone cancers, are very rare in comparison to those that have spread to the bones.

Pain is the most frequent symptom of bone malignancy, but sometimes a lump on the bone can be felt through the skin. It is very rare to have a true bone cancer, one that arises from cells that make up the bone.

The treatment and prognosis of the disease depends upon a number of factors including the type and extent of the malignancy, the person’s age and overall basic health. The disease may be treated with surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, or a combination of them all.

Final-Stage Alcohol Addiction: More Issues That Can Be Deadly

Having a loved one who is at the later stage of alcohol addiction can be difficult and depressing. This stage can be the end of the sufferer’s life or the end of his drinking days. During this time, the sufferer may be experiencing serious health issues.

People usually start a drinking pattern in an attempt to alleviate physiological or emotional pain. However, they may not realize that their alcoholism has become the cause of more problems which also impact the people around them. Alcoholism causes worries to families, jobs and communities. According to alcohol rehabilitation professionals alcohol addiction in the final stage may not be treated easily.

Strong Desire to Drink

An alcoholic whose alcohol dependency is at the final stage has a life that is revolved around alcohol. Often, he has a damaged career, family life and relationship. He tends to disregard other needs such as shelter, water and food. Surprisingly, a lot of late-stage alcoholics may still deny their condition. They continue to blame everything, except alcohol, for what is happening in their life. It is also likely that the alcoholic will stay away from situations and settings where their intoxication can be criticized and observed. This usually results in isolation. Late-stage alcoholism can result in homelessness, bankruptcy and divorce. In this stage, an addict is often drunk for several days.

Physical Dependence on Alcohol

During the later stage of alcohol dependency, an alcoholic is not only suffering from psychological and social issues but also physical damages. He may be experiencing critical symptoms when he is not able to drink alcohol. Alcohol withdrawal which induces extreme disturbance to the brain can cause delirium tremens. When the individual quits or reduces the amount of alcohol that he consumes, he may experience an increase in blood pressure, body temperature, respiration and heart rate. Some alcohol rehab center specialists warn that an alcoholic’s mind can be damaged by delusions, nightmares and hallucinations while delirium tremens is experienced.

Common Diseases

Alcoholics who are in the final stage of their drinking can suffer from cirrhosis as his liver becomes damaged. Late-stage alcoholism may also cause an addict to experience esophageal cancer, brain damage and cardiovascular diseases.

If someone you know is struggling with late-stage alcohol addiction, it is essential to help him get an appropriate treatment to save him from getting more health problems. There are available alcohol rehabilitation centers that have professionals who will monitor the patient and help him deal with his condition.
