Cancer Causes and Prevention
Looking at the history of an individual and their disease is the only way that true healing can occur. The development of a disease like cancer is not something that you ‘catch’ or that springs up overnight but rather a process that may have begun even before conception!
The human body is a miracle of finely balanced chemical, mechanical and electrical signals, which work together to create balance and health of the whole body. However, the world is filled with toxic substances (hundreds are even found in cord blood and mother’s milk) which are pro-inflammatory, oxidative or disturb the communication, absorption and distribution of substances throughout the body.
Therefore at Core, when looking at a person’s history, we consider it is essential to find when and where the body’s ability to ward off these detrimental substances was overrun and catastrophic damage was caused – and thus the detective work we do with you in clinic including our extensive baseline testing regime. See what’s to be done and why we do it for more information.
Finding this tipping point in history can be complicated. Every person is unique and everyone has a different tolerance for everything.
- Immune suppressants at early ages
- Childhood diseases
- Antibiotic cycles
- Poor inflammatory diets
- Latent viral diseases
- Environmental toxins
- Digestive issues
- Sensitivities, intolerances or allergies
- Emotional and/or physical traumas
- Sleeping disorders
- Hormonal imbalances.
This is a simplified snapshot of possible causative factors; the list goes on and on with each point having a complex interaction with the various aspects of the body.
With a preventative approach in mind, quite often there is a pattern recognisable in the development of disease and the earlier intervention steps are put in place the better. Taking autoimmune disease as an example:
Food sensitivities – Sinus –Hay fever – Eczema – Asthma – Psoriasis – Thyroid disease – Vitiligo – Dermatitis – Inflammation of connective tissue – Graves disease – Lupus.
Many people are not even aware of the symptoms that they are presenting with as they consider their mucous, lumps, bumps and pain as ‘normal’.
Tonsillitis, otitis media (glue ear) or appendicitis are all examples of first infections that are the beginning of a chronic cascade of inflammatory infections and diseases which burden the body’s ability to grow, repair and flourish. When placed at the beginning of a timeline, the progression of one disease or issue developing into another can be clearly seen.
As another example: A single round of antibiotics can have lifelong effects on the body. By eradicating not only the ‘bad bacteria’ but also the ‘good’, dysbiosis becomes a major issue. Dysbiosis (imbalanced gut micro flora) is directly linked with a lowered immune response, allergies, intolerances, chronic inflammation, malabsorption of nutrients and mental disorders (ADD, ADHD, autism).
As you can see, just one cycle of antibiotics, if not appropriately cared for (probiotic treatment), can have lasting effects that contribute to chronic disease and general ill health perhaps culminating in something far worse.
