Anti-Aging Protocol FIGHTS Aggressive Cancer
Have you had a colonoscopy recently?
It’s one of the few cancer screening tests I recommend—and get myself—because of how safe and accurate it is.
Identifying and removing a precancerous polyp can literally save your life.
But the fact that colorectal cancer is the third leading cause of cancer death shows that not enough people are taking this important preventive step.
Fortunately, scientists have identified a powerful anti-aging protocol that could be the key to effectively treating aggressive colorectal cancer.
Vitamin C and fasting have both been used to help fight aging.
Both have also been found to reduce the growth of cancer cells and increase the rate of cancer cell death.
That’s when they’re used individually.
But when they’re used TOGETHER, researchers found that they had a dramatic effect that killed nearly ALL cancer cells.
In some models of colorectal cancer, fasting + vitamin C delayed the progression of tumors. And in some models, it actually caused disease regression.
Interestingly, this strong effect was specifically found in cancer cells that have mutations in the KRAS gene, which are particularly hard to treat.
These mutations reduce a patient’s survival rate—and they occur in roughly half of all colorectal cancers.
On its own, vitamin C has actually been shown to cause these KRAS mutated cells to protect cancer cells by increasing levels of a protein called ferritin.
But fasting actually reduces levels of ferritin, which increases vitamin C’s toxicity in the cancer cells.
This could also be the reason why fasting has been shown to make chemotherapy more effective in tumor cells, while helping protect healthy cells from chemo’s toxic hit.
Now, if you do have cancer, fasting isn’t recommended. However, following a low-calorie, plant-based diet causes your cells to respond like they’re fasting, so that could be a good alternative.
This study was done in mice, but it offers compelling groundwork for considering these types of non-toxic therapies in people as well.
Be sure to talk with your doctor if you’d like to consider adding this to your treatment regimen.
Better yet, get a colonoscopy now so you don’t have to have that conversation later.
