A complete understanding of cancer is a sort of Holy Grail for modern medicine.
The whole truth is best expressed from a systems perspective: the body’s healthy cells turn into cancerous cells when biological equilibrium is upset beyond a critical point.
Conventional medicine prefers to break things down into parts rather than looking at whole systems, though. While this approach can offer a nitty-gritty understanding of the body and its ailments, it can also create a lot of confusion.
For example, until recently, conventional wisdom held that yeast infections tend to develop because of cancer. Their logic went like this: a fungus called Candida albicans takes advantage of immune system suppression to overpopulate the body with yeast; and since cancer patients undergoing chemo and radiation are nearly always immune-suppressed, it stands to reason that they would develop yeast infections.
This isn’t the full story, though. New research demonstrates that yeast overpopulation doesn’t just coincidentally exist alongside cancer—it actually causes and worsens cancer through a number of mechanisms.
Let’s take a look at a few of them.
Inflammation. We’ve remarked many times before that “inflammation is the root of all disease.” It is well-known that an overpopulation of Candida albicans causes chronic inflammation, mostly by continually triggering a cascade of pro-inflammatory chemicals within the body. This inflammation leads to immune system dysfunction, which is at the heart of the development and spread of cancer.
Cancer-causing byproducts. As a natural part of its proliferation, Candida albicans produces nitrosamines add acetaldehyde (a metabolite of methanol), both of which are strongly carcinogenic (the latter is also DNA-damaging, and thus can also contribute to cancer by causing healthy cells to be expressed as cancer cells).
Tumor growth support. Yeast overpopulation can also cause the body to produce certain chemicals that promote the formation of new blood vessels (this chemical production is known as Th17 response). These angiogenesis-promoting factors then inadvertently aid the formation and growth of cancerous tumors.
“Molecular mimicry”. Yeast uses devious mimicry to further compromise the body’s immune system (and thus facilitate its proliferation). Here’s how it works: a protein on the surface of Candida albicans resembles your white blood cells, so when antibodies are formed against the invading fungus, they may end up attacking your white blood cells too. This undermining of immune function creates a vicious cycle that leads to the spread of both yeast and cancer.
Acknowledging yeast as an independent cause of cancer is important because doing so encourages us to examine what causes yeast to begin with, instead of writing it off as something that just happens during a battle with cancer.
It just so happens that sugar, gluten, and processed foods can all cause yeast overpopulation. By recognizing this chain of causes, it’s much easier to see how our diet and lifestyles can directly place us at higher risk for developing cancer.
One dietary choice that’s a no-brainer, especially if you’re battling cancer, is turmeric.
Turmeric takes care of yeast and cancer in one fell swoop
We’ve written before about how turmeric fights cancer on every possible level, and how its unprecedented anti-cancer abilities are revolutionizing the way we think about cancer treatment.
Curcumin, the most widely studied polyphenol in turmeric, is also known to be a potent anti-fungal agent, so it should come as no surprise that this miracle root is the perfect tool for knocking out both yeast and cancer.
One study even specifically examined how turmeric functions as both an anti-cancer agent and an anti-fungal agent in the context of cancer. The researchers concluded that turmeric could be used in conjunction with chemotherapy to prevent yeast infections, and that curcumin holds great promise as an anti-cancer drug in its own right.
Turmeric accomplishes these feats because it treats and balances the body’s entire biological system, rather than targeting one piece at a time. It quells inflammation, boosts the immune system, addresses the root cause of yeast infections, and kills both cancer cells and cancer stem cells without harming the body’s healthy cells.
How to get the most out of turmeric
By all accounts, turmeric really is a miraculous healing tool (the benefits described above don’t even scratch the surface of its full potential). There’s just one problem: curcumin isn’t very readily absorbed by the body, so it’s difficult to get its truly therapeutic benefits.
Simply using turmeric as a cooking spice won’t give you nearly the amount that you need, and even most powdered turmeric supplements are fairly useless—because they’re low-quality and still not very bioavailable.
But this product is different: a turmeric extract made with organic turmeric, and without any nasty solvents. Through a proprietary, state-of-the-art process, the extract is “liposomalized,” meaning that each molecule is protected by a fatty bubble, which allows all the plant’s goodies to be readily absorbed by your cells.
This formulation takes all that raw turmeric has to offer and presents it in a format that your body LOVES to consume.
This extraordinary extract is even enriched with fulvic acid, which increases the bioavailability of all the nutrients you consume, detoxes the body, balances hydration and mineral levels, and optimizes brain health and cellular functioning. It’s a match made in heaven that will leave you feeling radiant and energized.
So whether you’re searching for the most powerful way to use turmeric as an anti-cancer agent, or trying to optimize your health and prevent cancer in the first place… Give this truly revolutionary product a try.
You won’t believe how quickly you feel its effects. Once you do, you’ll wonder why you didn’t make turmeric a part of your daily life a long time ago.
