Tissue integrity and cancer

The American Indian medicine old doctors taught us that cancer is initiated by a ‘blow’, past injuries, chronic irritation to the tissues of our body due to stress, inflammatory diet etc.. In modern terms, a kind of chronic inflammation ( take note if you are taking painkillers to mask the pain as this allows chronic low grade inflammation).

This is actually confirmed by modern science. Matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) are collagen-digesting enzymes that play a crucial role in the growth and metastasis of all cancers, by destroying the surrounding connective tissue.  This MMP can also be detected with the complete digestive functional test (CDSA3) available in our clinic.

Clinical studies have shown that certain herbs such as Phyllanthus emblica as in Phytolec in combination with other nutrients and herbs can modulate MMP.

This is one of the secrets to cancer prevention and slowing down existing cancer growth and may even effect a remission – tissue integrity and healing.
