Study Says Some Women With Common Breast Cancer Can Safely Skip Chemo

When a woman hears the dreaded words, “breast cancer,” often the first thing that comes to mind is the classic treatment — chemotherapy — and its accompanying image of a bald head, one of the side effects of the poison that’s supposed to help you when you’re treated for cancer of any type.

That image is about to change, however, if cancer doctors pay attention to new research that shows at least 70 percent of women may be able to forgo chemo, depending on a score they get from a new genomic test. According to CBS Sacramento, Oncotype DX Breast Recurrence Score test can tell doctors whether chemotherapy will treat their breast cancer. Dr. Otis Brawley, chief medical officer for the American Cancer Society, who was not part of the study, said he would still want certain premenopausal women to get the chemo, if their score was mid-range or higher.

The idea that poisoning women (chemotherapy is a poison) to treat and prevent cancer may be going by the wayside is refreshing. But to say that others will still be expected to get chemo without talking about the side effects of chemo is unconscionable. If nothing else, numerous studies in both mice and human subjects have shown that common chemotherapy drugs can foster tumor microenvironments for metastasis to occur later. In other words, the very drug that’s supposed to help you can later harm you.

It’s been known for years that chemotherapy can trigger tumors, but other serious, sometimes-fatal side effects (or more aptly, simply effects) of chemotherapy are also common, which may make your cancer prognosis worse instead of better. Unfortunately, upon receiving a cancer diagnosis, many people — and their doctors — assume the only options for treatment are chemotherapy, surgery or radiation. Only you and your health care team can make the decision on how to best pursue treatment, but you should know that conventional providers are unlikely to think outside the box.

A comprehensive natural cancer-fighting approach would be to make your body as healthy as possible, using detoxification, strategies to boost your immune function, dietary changes and other targeted therapies. I also believe that cancer is a metabolic disease that challenges the established dogma that cancer is genetic.

Five powerful ways of minimizing your cancer risk metabolically include:

  1. Switch over to a cyclical ketogenic diet and then intermittent feasting and fasting (You'll find the exact steps in my newest book "Fat for Fuel")
  2. Avoid pesticides, herbicides, genetically engineered and factory farmed foods (choose organic, locally grown wholefoods whenever possible)
  3. Move more and exercise regularly (simply sitting less can make a profound difference in your health)
  4. Get regular sun exposure and maintain healthy vitamin D serum levels (>60 ng/ml)
  5. Detox your body with regular full spectrum infrared sauna sessions
