Developing cancer disease from alcohol abuse

Developing cancer disease

Developing cancer disease from alcohol abuse can be stopped by addressing high rate of alcohol consumption.

Developing cancer disease from alcohol abuse: Types of cancer

Based on extensive reviews of research studies, there is a strong scientific consensus of an association between alcohol drinking and several types of cancer. In its Report on Carcinogens, the National Toxicology Program of the US Department of Health and Human Services lists consumption of alcoholic beverages as a known human carcinogen. The research evidence indicates that the more alcohol a person drinks particularly the more alcohol a person drinks regularly over time, the higher his or her risk of developing an alcohol-associated cancer. It will shock you to know that the effects are very fatal when accounting for deaths resulting from the consumption of alcohol. From the available statistics, it was estimated that in 2009 about 3.5% of cancer deaths in the United State, were alcohol related. That percentage represents about 19500 people dying from this scourge. Experts at AWAREmed Health and Wellness Resource Center under the able leadership of doctor Dalal Akoury while studying the formation of different types of cancer, established that there is an emerging pattern between alcohol consumption and the developing cancer including the following types:

Developing cancer disease from alcohol abuse: Head and neck cancer

Alcohol consumption is a major risk factor for certain head and neck cancers, particularly cancers of the oral cavity (excluding the lips), pharynx (throat), and larynx (voice box). People who consume 50 or more grams of alcohol per day (approximately 3.5 or more drinks per day) have at least two to three times’ greater risk of developing these cancers than nondrinkers. The matter is even more complicated where the patient is also smoking thereby increasing the risk even much higher.

Esophageal cancer

The consumption of alcohol poses a major risk factor for a particular type of esophageal cancer commonly known as esophageal squamous cell carcinoma. Besides that, individuals who inherit a deficiency in an enzyme that metabolizes alcohol also have significantly increased risks of alcohol-related esophageal squamous cell carcinoma.

Liver cancer

Alcohol consumption is an independent risk factor for, and a primary cause of, liver cancer (hepatocellular carcinoma). (Chronic infection with hepatitis B virus and hepatitis C virus are the other major causes of liver cancer.)

Developing cancer disease from alcohol abuse: Breast cancer

Ideally no study about types of cancer can be done without torching on the breast cancer which is one of the most discussed types of cancer globally. In our case study following more than 100 epidemiological studies whose objective was to find any link between alcohol consumption and breast cancer, it was established in most of these studies that breast cancer is closely linked to alcohol intake. A meta-analysis of more than half of these studies revealed that women who drunk more than 45 grams of alcohol daily (3 drinks) had 1.5 times the risk of developing breast cancer compared to nondrinkers. The risk of breast cancer was however higher across all levels of alcohol intake. That is to say for every 10 grams of alcohol consumed daily (slightly less than one drink), researchers observed a small (7 percent) increase in the risk of breast cancer.

This confirms that alcohol abuse is a serious threat to life as it introduces cancer into your life.

Managing panic attacks in cancer patients

Managing panic attacks

Managing panic attacks in cancer patients require professionalism and care

Managing panic attacks in cancer patients: This attack can be life threatening

Careful consideration should be taken in managing panic attacks in cancer patients since it can be an alarming symptom of anxiety. According to the experts at AWAREmed Health and Wellness Resource Center under the able leadership of doctor Dalal Akoury MD, panic attacks can happen very suddenly and often reach their worst in just about 10 minutes. The victim may seem fine between the attacks but is usually very afraid that they will happen again. The following are some of the symptoms of panic attack.

Managing panic attacks in cancer patients: Symptoms of panic attack

  • Shortness of breath or a feeling of being smothered
  • Running heart
  • Feelings of dizziness, unstable, lightheaded, or faint
  • Chest pain or discomfort
  • Feeling as if they’re choking
  • Quivering or trembling
  • Sweating
  • Fear of losing control or “going crazy”
  • An urge to escape
  • Impassiveness or tingling sensations
  • Feeling “unreal” or “detached” from themselves
  • Chills (shaking or shivering) or hot flashes (may involve sweating or facial reddening)

If a person is having any of the first 5 symptoms or any five for that matter, it can mean an urgent or life-threatening condition. In this case the presence of a doctor would be required right away to attend to the patient if someone unexpectedly has any of these. It is also very important to note that these symptoms can be signs of other, more serious problems such as shock, heart attack, blood chemistry imbalance, collapsed lung, allergic reaction and many other chronic conditions. Therefore it’s not safe to make an assumption that they are panic-related until are diagnosed and confirmed by a doctor.

Managing panic attacks in cancer patients: What to do

  • Check with the doctor to be sure that the symptoms are caused by panic and not another medical problem.
  • Stay calm and speak softly during a panic attack.
  • Sit with the person during panic attacks until he or she is feeling better.
  • Call for help if needed.
  • After the panic attack is over, encourage the person to get treatment for the panic attacks.
  • Provide transportation to treatment if needed. The person may be afraid that a panic attack will happen while driving.
  • The ideas listed under “What to do” in the section “Anxiety and Fear” may also be helpful.

Managing panic attacks in cancer patients: Do not

  • Minimize or make light of the person’s terror or fear.
  • Judge the person for feeling scared and acting strangely.
  • Try to talk the person out of their fear or other feelings.
  • Hesitate to call the doctor if you have questions about what’s happening.

Finally for us to win the good health back, we must ensure that we change our attitude towards anxiety and fear more so when it comes to handling cancer patients. Everything we do will matter a lot in the healing process of the cancer patients. Therefore seeking for treatment in good time and from experience and qualified doctors will be the best you can do for yourself. Doctor Dalal Akoury is one of such professionals you can contact for any health conditions you have that is cancerous. Make the best decision today and schedule for an appointment with doctor Akoury for a life changing treatment that will give you your life back enjoying it to the fullest.

Double health complications from cancer and stress

Double health complications

Double health complications from cancer and stress. in fact cancer is a killer disease which must be addressed professionally.

Double health complications from cancer and stress: The questions to address

When dealing with dealing with health issues today, be rest assured that quite often you will be addressing multiple or double health complications from various health complications including cancer and stress which are very good friends as far as health issues are concern. The following questions are going to help us understand the double health complications. Doctor Dalal Akoury MD and also the founder of the same is going to be taking us through this process.

  • How does stress affect the way cancer progress?
  • How can I protect myself against the effects of stress?
  • How does support work?

Double health complications from cancer and stress: How does stress affect the way cancer progress?

The effects of stress may stem from how your body responds to it. When you’re stressed, your body makes certain so-called “stress” hormones to deal with it. In many cancer patients, these hormones bind with cancer cells. That can make the cells more invasive and help protect them as they move from one part of the body to another. This makes it easier for the tumor to grow and the cancer to spread. Nonetheless being stressful can also trigger negativity to your immune system which is the body basic defender from external and internal aggression. It has been established that, stress can interferes with the way certain cells in your immune system work. In particular, it affects cells that find and that kill emerging cancer cells.

How can I protect myself against the effects of stress?

People with better support tend to have better functioning immune systems. They also tend to have lower levels of certain stress hormones. This makes it less likely that stress will cause changes in the way a tumor grows. Some studies also show that people with more support have lower levels of chemicals that promote new cell growth and make tumors more aggressive.

Double health complications from cancer and stress: How does support work?

Support makes it easier to develop qualities you need to deal with stress. For example, it can help you develop more active coping skills. A strong support network can reduce the effects of stress in several ways including the following:

  • It can lessen the magnitude of the problem and help you see that event as less stressful. That will lessen your body’s response to it.
  • It can improve your management levels and how you cope by providing advice, problem solving techniques and resources for help when you need it.
  • It can help enhance positive health behaviors such as exercise and proper nutrition.
  • It can provide support that makes it easier to adhere to your medical treatment plan.

A number of recent studies have also shown that, in addition to a support network, there are potential benefits from programs that help you learn how to manage stress. Such programs include:

  • Cognitive behavioral therapy
  • Mindfulness
  • Yoga
  • Alternative therapies such as Healing Touch
  • Medication

It is important to appreciate that such programs can not only help you in dealing with the stress that comes from having cancer, but the stress that can come from treatments such as chemotherapy and radiation as well. Therefore cancer and stress must not be allowed to ruin your health. There is always something you can do to be safe. You can talk to the experts at AWAREmed Health and Wellness Resource Center under the able leadership of Doctor Akoury’s care for professional assistance today by scheduling for an appointment with her.

Treating cancer related pain

Treating cancer related pain

Treating cancer related pain is very essential for all ages

Treating cancer related pain: The significance of herbs in this treatment

Treating cancer related pains is very important since when cancer patients are left to struggle on their own, more pain and suffering will be registered.

Treating cancer related pain: Papain

Papain is an enzyme found in papaya fruit. Specifically, it’s a proteolytic enzyme derived from the sappy, milk-like latex that comes from unripe papaya skins. That latex is dried and made into a powder.

Papain has been shown to attack tumor cells. It’s also effective at boosting your immune system. It works by breaking down proteins, though its mechanism of action isn’t fully understood.

In animal studies, papain has also been shown to work as a shield against the damaging effects of radiation.

Papain is often administered topically but can also be taken as a supplement when it comes to pain management. Topical creams are used to treat painful problems like bed sores, burns, and surgical wounds.

As for side effects, some people report of gastrointestinal distress while taking oral papain, and topical remedies have been reported to occasionally prompt a mild burning sensation.

Bromelain is another enzyme (made from pineapples) that’s an effective natural pain reliever and anti-inflammatory, although I don’t know that it has the specific anti-tumor and radiation-protective benefits found in papain.

You can easily buy papain and bromelain in supplement stores, either separately or together in one pill.

Treating cancer related pain: Ginger extract

Ginger is a well-known natural treatment for nausea, but it also reduces pain and inflammation. It works thanks to the ability to lower your number of prostaglandins, the messenger molecules that tell you when you’re in pain
Some studies show that ginger also helps reduce the nausea and discomfort associated with chemotherapy. Ginger is extremely versatile as food. Ginger products come from fresh or dried ginger root, and you can get the herb in capsule form, tinctures, extracts, and oils. You can also grate the fresh root as a spice for food, or prepare it as tea. Side effects are rare unless you take ginger in incredibly high, unwarranted doses.

Treating cancer related pain: Natural pain relief

The benefits of natural pain management extend far beyond just relieving your pain. They also give you emotional relief and satisfaction. Because when you’re dealing with consistent pain over time, you’ll likely have less tolerance for the side effects that come from traditional pain medicines. Turning to pain relieving herbs like the ones already mention means you don’t have to just deal with the pain but you can lessen it or get rid of it completely, and without side effects. Herbs make it easy to spruce up meals. They motivate you to look into fresh or new recipes. They’re a simple, beneficial way to bringing some fun back into your life if you or a loved one is facing cancer.

It is generally important to note that pain relieving and anti-inflammatory supplements don’t pack the wallop of drugs and certainly not of morphine but they can greatly reduce your need for medication. Their advantage is that you can take them all the time, they not addictive and they have a whole range of benefits other drugs don’t have. Finally it is time for you to think outside the box and professionally seek for help when it is due. Cancer and the pain associated with it don’t need reluctance even for a day. If you have any suspicion of any kind and in fact you don’t have to feel something for you to go for checkup. This should be a routine in your health calendar and you must choose to be discipline with it after all your health is the best asset you will ever have. Talk to doctor Dalal Akoury today and get started if you have never done so.

Addressing cancer transplantation

Addressing cancer transplantation

Addressing cancer transplantation. It all begins with the elimination of substance abuse

Addressing cancer transplantation: Eliminating substance abuse

In case of malignancies, we are using patented methods of treatment with stem cells. These methods have proved their efficacy, have been approved by the Ministry of Health on April 20, 1999 and have been recommended for use in clinical practice. Transplantation of fetal stem cells is possible at all stages of oncological diseases like for instance:

Addressing cancer transplantation: At the initial stage of treatment

If surgery (tumor removal) cannot be started due to such complications as anemia, weakness, wasting, thrombocytopenia, depression, etc., transplantation of fetal stem cells prior to the tumor removal operation provides for the best preparation of the patient to surgery and best tolerability of the latter; it also accelerates the postoperative wound healing process, minimizes consequences and complications of anesthesia, and reduces the duration of the post-surgery rehabilitation period that allows for more rapid continuation of comprehensive treatment. In patients treated with the method of fetal stem cell transplantation prior to the operation, best tolerability of chemotherapy courses had been observed. Probability of metastatic process development diminishes as a result of increased anti-tumor immunity.

Addressing cancer transplantation: During the course of chemotherapy and radiotherapy (irradiation)

In case of such complications as leukopenia, agranulocytosis, thrombocytopenia, anemia, hepatitis, enteropathy, wasting, depression, alopecia, etc., transplantation of fetal stem cells promotes rapid (5 to 7 days) restoration of peripheral blood parameters after chemotherapy, improvement of the overall condition, and helps prevent complications. Transplantation of fetal stem cells provides an opportunity for carrying out more large-scale and intensive chemotherapy with a minimum risk without violating its timeframe.

Addressing cancer transplantation: After chemotherapy and radiotherapy (irradiation)

Transplantation of fetal stem cells is instrumental in restoring anti-tumor immunity and haemopoesis; it contributes to improvement of patient’s overall condition, decrease in weakness, as well as to improvement of their psycho-emotional status and quality of life.

Addressing cancer transplantation: Post-transplantation effects

Solid experience in cancer treatment allowed us to distinguish two stages in post-transplantation period that are different in time of development and clinical manifestations.

The first stage lasts for about one month and is characterized by emergence of early clinical symptoms that develop within a few hours after transplantation of fetal stem cells. We have described the early post-transplantation improvement syndrome: improvement in overall condition and appetite, decline in body temperature, diminishing weakness and sweating, restoration of self-care ability and increase in performance. This syndrome mostly occurs in patients with symptoms of severe intoxication and is often observed in patients with severe clinical course of the disease.

Also, a syndrome of psycho-functional changes is observed: reduction of somatic depression, improvement of emotional status, cognitive abilities, memory, and conative component.

The second stage of cell effect begins within one to two months after transplantation. It is related to reduced clinical manifestations of the disease and is characterized by stabilization of haemopoesis, improvement of the immunological profile, reduction of inflammatory effects, elevation of Karnovsky index, and improved quality of life.

Finally doctor Akoury reiterates that stem cell therapy contributes to formation of anti-tumor immunity; that can be used for preventing oncological diseases, as well as with the purpose of avoiding relapse and metastatic process. But even before we get there, most of the cancerous complications are as a result of substance abuse. This means that if we were to deal the prevention of substance abuse, cancer complications will be reduced greatly. Therefore as you consider taking the above treatment course, we also want to encourage you to talk to us about the major cause of cancer (drug addiction) so that we can fight the problem from all angles.
