If you are diagnosed with cancer head and neck cancer, your first goal is to reach remission. The newly diagnosed cancer patient wants to become cancer-free. Conventional oncology is usually pretty good at putting cancer patients into remission. At least the first time.
The problem is that many cancers return. The study linked and excerpted below explains that:
decrease the overall 5-year survival rate in Head and Neck Squamous Cell Cancer patients. In other words, you may reach remission once but if the cancer relapses you will be in trouble. Your cancer may not respond to more chemotherapy.
According to the study below, grapeseed extract kills head and neck cancer, is well-tolerated and is bioavailable. I am not talking about a silver bullet cure. I’m talking about supplementing with a nutritional therapy shown to reduce your risk of relapse.
I am a survivor of an incurable cancer called multiple myeloma. I have remained in complete remission from my cancer since 1999. I supplement with Life Extension Grapeseed Extract. I am also a cancer coach. Evidence-based, non-toxic therapies such as GSE are central to my living an evidence-based, non-toxic, anti-cancer lifestyle.
Have you been diagnosed with head and neck cancer? If so, what stage?
“Head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) accounts for 6% of all malignancies in USA and unfortunately the recurrence of secondary primary tumors and resistance against conventional treatments decrease the overall 5 year survival rate in HNSCC patients…
GSE selectively inhibited the growth and caused cell cycle arrest and apoptotic death in both Detroit 562 and FaDu cells…
In terms of its toxicity and bioavailability, in vivo studies with GSE have shown that it is well tolerated and is considered safe as dietary supplement for human consumption…
In summary, the present study clearly demonstrated GSE efficacy against HNSCC cells both in cell culture and animal models…Considering the limited therapeutic options available against HNSCC, results from the present study support additional studies investigating GSE efficacy against HNSCC both in chemoprevention and intervention protocols and define the mechanisms of its efficacy.”
