Breast cancer is a disease in which cells in the breast grow out of control. There are different kinds of breast cancer. The kind of breast cancer depends on which cells in the breast turn into cancer. Breast cancer can begin in different parts of the breast. A breast is made up of three main parts: lobules, ducts, and connective tissue. The lobules are the glands that produce milk. The ducts are tubes that carry milk to the nipple. The connective tissue (which consists of fibrous and fatty tissue) surrounds and holds everything together. Most breast cancers begin in the ducts or lobules. Breast cancer can spread outside the breast through blood vessels and lymph vessels. When breast cancer spreads to other parts of the body, it is said to have metastasized.

Prevention: Many factors over the course of a lifetime can influence your breast cancer risk. You can’t change some factors, such as getting older or your family history, but you can help lower your risk of breast cancer by taking care of your health in the following ways: Keep a healthy weight. Exercise regularly. Don’t drink alcohol, or limit alcoholic drinks. If you are taking, or have been told to take, hormone replacement therapyexternal or oral contraceptivesexternal(birth control pills), ask your doctor about the risks and find out if it is right for you. Staying healthy throughout your life will lower your risk of developing cancer, and improve your chances of surviving cancer if it occurs.

Are There Any Natural Cures for Breast Cancer?

Doctor’s care is necessary to identify the stage of your cancer and to identify the most appropriate treatment approach. However, many natural options are effective for supporting traditional cancer treatments and for treating the condition on their own. Some of the best natural cures for breast cancer include turmeric, flaxseed, calcium, baking soda, and acupuncture.

1. Turmeric

Dr. Mercola purports turmeric, or rather the specific compound curcumin found in turmeric, as one of the best supplements for breast cancer. The compound has been found to inhibit the growth of tumor cells, prevent the transformation of healthy cells to cancer cells, assist your body in destroying cancerous cells, decrease inflammation, and enhance liver function. To get the full benefits, Dr. Mercola says to look for an extract that contains at least 95% curcuminoids and contains only certified organic ingredients. Drink 1 tablespoon of turmeric in a quart of water every day for the best results.

2. Flaxseed

The Cancer Cure Foundation suggests using flaxseed as an effective natural treatment for cancer. The American Cancer Society also reports that flaxseed has been show to slow the growth of cancer and to prevent its spread. For the best results, use flaxseed oil and take 1-2 tablespoons by mouth per day.

3. Calcium

Calcium is another nutrient that has been shown to aid in cancer treatment. According to the Cancer Cure Foundation, calcium reduces tumor formation and supports overall bone and tissue health. You should take at least 1,000mg per day for the biggest health benefits.

4. Baking Soda

Baking soda helps alkalize your body, creating an environment in which cancer cells cannot thrive. Drink 1 to 2 tablespoons of baking soda dissolved in 8 ounces of water daily.

5. Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a commonly used treatment for mediating the symptoms of cancer. The treatment pinpoints pain centers to relieve pain and inflammation throughout your body. Cancer Research UK lists this as one of the most commonly used treatment options for cancer.
