Natural Tips for Breast Cancer By Linda Mackenzie, Ph.D. (c)
Breast Cancer is not automatically a death sentence.
In fact, the statistical model used to predict cancer death rates was recently found to be
So, in fact, there are many more cancer survivors than are reported in “the statistics”.
The breast contains lymphatic vessels, milk ducts, lobes and fatty tissue.
The breast is mainly a round mass of glandular tissue with fifteen to twenty lobes.
Each lobe has a duct that leads to an opening in the nipple.
The framework of the breast is composed of connective tissue with a ligament layer
beneath the breast,
which provides firmness.
Most breast lumps are cysts and fibroid masses that are not
Cancerous tumors and lumps never go away.
They are firm and usually pain-free, and can appear in any part of the breast.
A biopsy may be needed to determine if a lump is cancerous.
Some of the symptoms of breast cancer are:
Thickening of the breast
Itchiness of the nipple
There are several kinds of breast cancer. They are categorized
by the site where the cancer cells
originated and the area of the breast in which they are located.
These are:Paget’s disease of the nipple
Lobular carcinoma (breast lobe cancer)
Intraductal carcinoma in situ (localized within the ducts)
Infiltrating ductal carcinoma (invasive milk duct cancer)
Inflammatory carcinoma (lymphatic/blood vessel cancer)
Adenoid cystic carcinoma (uncommon)
Malignant cytosarcoma phylliodes (uncommon)
Medullary carcinoma (uncommon)
Tubular carcinoma (uncommon)
Cancer is unrestrained cell growth. Heredity, estrogen and environmental factors
seem to be the main cause of breast cancer.
Heredity cancers usually develop before the age of fifty.
Estrogen promotes cellular growth in the breast.
Environmental factors such as pesticides, chemicals, radiation,
and silicone implants have been linked to breast cancer.
There is an increased risk of breast cancer among women who:
Are childless – in menopause
Started menstruation before 9 years of age
Have had a child after 40 years of age
Consume large amounts of caffeine, alcohol and sugar
Use oral contraceptives
Eat high-fat diets – are obese
Especially for women over 50 years of age
Use ERT (estrogen replacement therapy) after long-term use of 10 years or more
Frequent exposure to medical x-rays
Breast cancer is most common in women over 40
Especially postmenopausal women
Although you can get breast cancer at any age
Men also get breast cancer although it occurs less frequently
Traditional medical treatments for breast cancer include:
Chemotherapy plus bone marrow treatment
Or a combination of these treatments.
Doctors once thought that extensive surgery could
control the spread of Cancer, however they now
believe that the cancer cells may break away
from the primary tumor during surgery and spread
through the bloodstream, even in the early stages of the disease.
The use of drug treatment after surgery is used to kill these cells.
The key to any therapy is Research! Research! Research!
Some of the natural health care treatments include: Antineoplaston therapy
Dr. Burzynski uses amino acid derivatives to inhibit the growth of cancer
Biological and Pharmacologic therapy – use of non toxic medications
Plant cell medications and human cell medications
Shark Cartilage therapy – blocks the creation of new blood
vessels which are required for cancer to grow
and thus starves the tumor
Immune System Treatments/Immunologic Therapies
bolsters the immune system to combat & destroy
cancer cells using a whole body program of detoxifying the body by diet
Uncontaminated water and vitamins
Metabolic Therapy – uses detox, colon cleansing, anti-cancer diets based
on whole foods plus vitamins
Minerals and enzymes
Nutritional Supplement Therapies
Ozone and Oxygen Therapies
counseling, bio-feedback, hypnosis, visualization,
imagery, yoga, massage therapy, meditation, relaxation techniques
FOODS & DIET
Avoid: over the counter meat, poultry, & dairy products;
fatty, charred or grilled foods; well-done meat, processed refined foods,
junk food, animal and vegetable oils, saturated fats, white flour,
sugar, salt, NO alcohol, NO caffeine, drugs, nicotine,
saturated fats, artificial flavorings, colorings and preservatives.

brown rice, corn, alfalfa, soybeans, kelp, onions, strawberries,
raw nuts (no peanuts), horseradish, yogurt, maitake and reishi mushrooms.
10 raw almonds a day – Steamed distilled or spring water (no tap water)
fruit juices in the AM – Vegetable juices in the PM
because other types contain residue of estrogenic
hormones have been linked to promoting breast cancer
VITAMINS & SUPPLEMENTS
Multivitamin & mineral supplement (from a health food store please);
Plus extra Vitamin B complex (100mg/each),
Vitamin E (400IUs a day and increase slowly to 1,000 IU a day)
Vitamin C (5,000-20,000 mg/day)
Essential Fatty Acids (flaxseed, borage or black current oil) – helps good cell reproduction
Coenzyme Q10 (100mg/day)
DMG (as directed on bottle) – improves oxygenation of the cells
Colostrum (as directed on bottle)
Pycnogenol, – boosts immune system, accelerates healing
Germanium (200 mg/day)
Shark Cartilage (750 mg/day)
Acidolphilus (non-dairy kind)
SAMe (as directed)
Bee Propolis, – helps deter cancer growth
Melatonin (3-50mg) – helps block estrogen-receptor sites on breast cancer cells
Zinc (50mg/day) – aids normal cell division and function
Digestive Enzymes – helps reduce inflammation
Selenium (200-400mcg/daily) – has been found to help prevent formation of certain types of breast tumors
DO NOT TAKE IRON
A daily juice of organic fresh broccoli,
cauliflower, carrots, kale, dark leafy greens
and an apple – Other good juices – Beet, Grape,
Black Cherry, Carrot, Cabbage
Burdock root, Dandelion Root, Milk Thistle, Red Clover – helps protects liver & blood cleansing
Cumin, Tumeric, Ginseng – may inhibit breast tumor growth & have cancer fighting ability
Ginko Biloba, Cat’s Claw,Cranberry, Parsley, Boswelia, Andrographics Peniculata, Olive Leaf Extract
essiac tea (Old Indian Remedy), Red Clover, Green, Ginger, Peppermint & Ginseng
SPICES These spices may have Anti-Cancer Properties:
