Cancer Causes, fact or myth: hormonal disorders, are these really causing cancer?

Cancer Causes, hormonal disorders, are these really causing cancer

There is a common myth that our hormones can cause cancer. We are told that certain tumours or types of cancer are hormonal dependent and that we must therefore avoid all hormones in food as well as inhibit the natural production of hormones in our body.

The correct understanding though is actually that it is not our hormones that directly cause cancer but, rather, it is what our hormones are exposed to which is the real problem.

In the year 1900, only 5% of the population reportedly had cancer. In 2016, 46% of the world’s population are fighting cancer. Women and men had the ‘same’ hormones as we do today, so if hormones caused cancer why the huge difference in increased cancer rates? What has changed from 1900 to now?

For one thing, we are literally living in a “toxic soup”. Certain toxins literally play havoc with our hormones. Our environment exposes us to dangerous xenoestrogens (xeno meaning “foreign) from the chemical estrogens all around us. Things like herbicides, pesticides, amalgam (silver) teeth fillings, antiperspirants and certain types of plastics, to name just a few, are the culprits here. It is now more challenging to have a healthy and balanced hormonal system.

Read this article by Dr. Axe on how to reduce the dangers of toxins that seriously disrupt our hormones: https://draxe.com/endocrine-disruptors-how-to-avoid-excess-estrogen

In North America alone there are more than 77,000 chemicals being produced, with more than 3,000 chemicals added to our food supply. For example, there the more than 10,000 chemicals in the form of solvents, emulsifiers, as well as preservatives which are used in food processing, packaging, wrapping, and storage. The EPA estimates there are more than 20,000 chemicals that our bodies cannot metabolize. Chemicals not metabolized are stored in the fat cells throughout our bodies. This is causing hormone disorder and unbalances.

Amalgam fillings are classified as metalloestrogens and they cause us untold damage as they mimic and also stimulate estrogen production in a person’s body. At the Budwig Cancer Center, we work with a local biological dentist who replaces these harmful fillings with natural compounds. We find that people who come to us with breast, ovarian and prostate cancer are at greater risk from xenoestrogens.

What about ER-Estrogen Positive Breast Cancer?

When a person gets a breast cancer diagnosis, the oncologist will probably tell them that their condition is hormonal driven.  There is a variety of different definitions they will use, such as:

  • Endocrine receptor-positive (estrogen or progesterone receptors)
  • HER2-positive
  • Triple positive: positive for estrogen receptors, progesterone receptors, and HER2
  • Triple negative: not positive for estrogen receptors, progesterone receptors, and HER2

According to the medical approach, about 80% of all breast cancers are “ER-positive.” The medical world will probably tell you that this means that cancer cells grow in response to the hormone estrogen. About 65% of these are also “PR-positive.” They grow in response to another hormone, progesterone.  On the other hand, if your breast cancer has a significant number of receptors for either estrogen or progesterone, it would be considered hormone-receptor positive.

What is the real cause of cancer?

There are many contributing factors that cause cancer but the main cause is toxins. We have many more toxins now than ever before, in the air, water and in our food. Also, we must not forget about emotional toxins and stress that has increased dramatically with the hectic lifestyle of our “modern world”. At the Budwig Cancer Center, we use several therapies to detoxify our patients, such as hyperthermia, infrared saunas, ionic foot baths, Epsom salt baths, colonic irrigation, herbal formulas and emotional healing therapies.

The famous flaxseed oil and cottage cheese mixture that Dr. Budwig used contains two anticancer components: lignans and an omega-3 fat called “alphalinolenic acid” (ALA). Several studies have been carried out to determine how phytoestrogens in flaxseeds help counteract cancer progression. One theory compares the estrogen-receptor blocking ability of flaxseeds with estrogen-receptor modulation drugs. Weak plant-based estrogens block the estrogen receptors of cells within breast tissue, starving them of full-strength female estrogen, possibly stopping tumor growth and preventing cell damage.

The best way to treat and prevent cancer is to try to avoid the many toxins around us by making wise food choices, drinking clean water, regular detox programs, consuming selected herbs and chlorella, regular infrared sauna sessions and regular exercise with a mini-trampoline. These habits will help us keep balanced so that we can avoid hormonal disorders as well as other unbalances that contribute to cancer.

    I was told I am “triple negative”. Will the Budwig therapy of cottage cheese & flax seed oil (without High Lignan) and ground whole flax seeds help me?

  2. Kathy Jenkins January 16, 2017 at 12:14 pm

    Dear Donna,

    Thank you for contacting us with your question. Since the Budwig mix is prepared with ground flaxseeds, you can use flaxseed oil without high lignan because the ground flaxseeds will provide you with lignan.

    Let me know if I can help you further.
    Kind regards

    Hello. I use cottage cheese with the Barlean’s Fresh Flax Oil that is organic/pure & Unrefined/Freshly Cold Pressed. Is that type of flax oil just as effective? Will lit help to fight cancer?

    Sherlawn

    Dear Sherlawn,

    Thank you for contacting us with your question. Yes, this type of flaxseed oil is the right kind to use to prepare this recipe which we recommend whether a person has cancer or is trying to prevent cancer and obtain optimum health. To fight cancer we have to look at the reasons for it coming to our body in the first place. We would rely on many treatments instead of just 1 food or remedy. Let us know if we can help you with your particular case.

    Kind regards,

    So, if a person is diagnosed with Er/PR positive breast, then how do foods that have components that mimic estrogens affect the condition?

  7. Irene March 16, 2017 at 3:50 pm

    I am using Flora Unrefined virgin oil Gluten free Organic Flax Oil made with Canadian Flax Seeds, is that on your recommended list? thank you

  8. Kathy Jenkins March 20, 2017 at 9:10 am

    Dear Irene,

    The flaxseed oil should be cold pressed. Unrefined means minimal process but it is important that it also be subject to minimal heat so please look for the term “cold pressed” on the label.

    Kind regards,

    Dear, Robin Grant

    There are foods like flaxseeds that naturally contain estrogen. We need to understand how the natural occurring estrogen in flaxseeds work. They actually help improve the body’s ability to metabolize the estrogen which is what we want to achieve Flaxseeds contain a weak plant estrogen called lignans. Lignans can help improve the way your body metabolizes its own estrogen. This, in turn, can reduce the development of fibroid tumors. Cruciferous vegetables provide the anti-estrogenic nutrients the body needs to win the battle against excess estrogen and its related weight gain and disorders. There is a common myth that our hormones can cause cancer. The correct understanding is that it is not our hormones that directly causes cancer but, rather, it is what our hormones are exposed to which is the problem. In the year 1900, only 5% of the population reportedly had cancer. In 2016, 46% of the world’s population are fighting cancer. Women and men had the ‘same’ hormones as we do today, so if hormones caused cancer why the huge difference in increased cancer rates? What has changed from 1900 to now? Well, we are literally living in a “toxic soup” and these toxins literally play havoc with our hormones. Our environment exposes us to dangerous xenoestrogens (xeno meaning “foreign) from the chemical estrogens all around us. Things like herbicides, pesticides, amalgam (silver) teeth fillings, antiperspirants and certain types of plastics, to name just a few.
