When a woman gets breast cancer, she usually throws herself into the treatment to ensure life goes on. Now women can keep breast cancer away with Cannabis Oil. Doctors estimate that more than 40 000 women will die this year alone from breast cancer – but treatment and diagnoses are improving, along with the chances for survival.
Cancer cells multiply and divide uncontrollably – unlike healthy cells which reach a point and undergo programmed cell death, making way for new cells. Breast cancer can be a) Ductal carcinoma, the most common type which begins in the milk duct or b) Lobular carcinoma which begins in the lobules which are the tiny glands that produce milk for feeding. If the cancer is invasive, it breaks out of these regions and into the tissue of the breast, with the possibility that it will spread further into the body. Non-invasive breast cancer has not yet broken out from its place of origin and can be treated there.
Symptoms of breast cancer include a zone of condensed tissue in the breast, or a lump in the breast or in the armpit. It could also represent as pain in the armpits or breast that won’t go away; the skin of an orange in a red colour; nipple rash; discharge from the nipple, maybe containing some blood; an inverted nipple; any change in shape or size of breast and any flaking of skin in the breast or nipple. Get every symptom checked immediately as many are not cancerous.
There are many different cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant and one of these is cannabidiol (CBD). Research has shown that CBD assists with the side effects of Chemotherapy which include nausea, vomiting, insomnia and pain. And there are many stories circulating about how people have conquered their cancer with cannabidiol or tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) the chemical compound in cannabis that gives the user a high. CBD was found to stop the spread of cancerous tumours in the breast. The CBD could stop the invasive properties of the cancer by impeding a gene that causes this metastasis of the cancer tumour. These studies are promising and hold hope for people who get breast cancer.
Another recent study revealed how patients can keep breast cancer away by taking strong cannabis oil. The CBD forced the cancer cells to undergo programmed cell death or voluntary suicide, leaving the normal healthy cells alone. The cannabinoid also forces the cell to destroy itself in a process called autophagy which is what normal cells in the body do to get rid of unwanted cells. This is the body’s way of managing its homeostasis so that new cells can grow. If this works for breast cancer, lives can be saved.
More studies need to be done to prove that CBD can keep breast cancer away. However, cancer patients are taking the oil to ease their chemotherapy symptoms. Please contact us for more information about your dose requirements and the form of CBD you will take.
