Note: In this book, 15 cancer doctors share the details of their treatment protocols and answer difficult questions about cancer. Each physician is given their own chapter. The page you are viewing contains sample material; to read the rest of the book, you can place your order for the book from the publisher, Amazon, or Barnes & Noble. You can also buy the Kindle Edition.
EXCERPTED FROM Dr. Celaya-Rivera & Steve Hines’ Chapter: Most cancers, regardless of their site of origin in the body, over-express estrogen receptors. That means that either they have an excessive amount of estrogen receptors on the surface of their cell membranes, or their ratio of active to inactive receptors is too high. Whenever there are too many receptors, the end result is that the cell divides and reproduces more rapidly. Estrogen is a major growth factor which contributes to the proliferation of cancer.
Xenoestrogens (which are man-made, synthetic estrogens) mimic the activity of the body’s estrogen and are found in pesticides, herbicides, and industrial solvents. Xenoestrogens drive the over-expression of what is called the “alpha” estrogen receptor on cancer cells. There is another estrogen receptor, called the “beta” receptor, but many scientists consider this receptor to have been misnamed. They believe that it should be called the “anti-estrogen receptor” because whenever it’s filled by the body’s natural hormone “2 Methoxyestradiol,” for which it was designed, it actually antagonizes the alpha estrogen receptor and prevents it from being over-stimulated. This, in turn, prevents cancer cell division and reproduction. In Europe, doctors use this hormonal metabolite to treat patients with hormone-sensitive cancers. We do urine tests on our patients to make sure they are producing adequate 2-Methoxyestradiol, and if not, we treat them appropriately.
Other natural compounds also bind to the beta estrogen receptor on cancer cells and prevent over-stimulation of the alpha receptor. These include fermented soy beverages such as Haelan 951, which contain many isoflavones. It’s important to note that soy beans alone don’t have the active chemicals necessary for binding to the beta receptor; they must be fermented by specific fungi and bacteria to produce the proper byproduct.
In any case, we find it essential to give our patients beta-receptor agonists in order to counter the negative effects of xenoestrogens and other alpha receptor stimulators. The more that estrogen alpha receptors get stimulated, either by endogenous factors (the body’s internal processes) or environmental xenoestrogens, the more beta receptor agonists must be made available to stop the cellular proliferation which results. This is a very important aspect of cancer treatment that’s unfortunately missed by most oncologists. Also, we always add iodine supplementation and Di-indole Methane (a phytonutrient which controls estrogen levels) to our patients’ diets because these cause estrogen to be metabolized into anti-cancer pathways (2 Methoxyestradiol) in the body rather than pro-cancer pathways.
