How To Boost Melatonin Naturally

Most people know melatonin as the sleep hormone. And that’s right. It helps your body cycle down every night so you can rest. But melatonin is so much more than that… It’s also one of your body’s most powerful cancer killers. Studies show melatonin boosts the immune system. It protects against the toxic side effects of chemo and radiation. It improves wound healing after surgery. And it even increases cancer survival rates.1 And new research proves that melatonin suppresses the growth of breast cancer tumors. How does melatonin affect breast cancer? Mammograms detect cancer. In a lab at Michigan State University, researchers grew breast cancer tumors called “mammospheres.” They fed the tumors with chemicals that we already know fuel growth. They used real estrogen and fake estrogens like bisphenol A (BPA), the toxic chemical found in plastics and thousands of household items. Treating the cells with melatonin reduced the number and size of the tumors. In other words, melatonin inhibits cancer cell growth.  And it works in real people, too. In one study, patients with glioblastoma, a type of brain cancer, were given either radiation alone, or radiation and melatonin. After one year, 23% of the melatonin patients were still alive.  But none of the radiation group survived.2  It’s the same with chemo. Doctors in Italy gave melatonin to lung cancer patients who didn’t respond to chemo. A year later, 26% of t...

This study investigated the presence of Streptococci, Staphylococci, aerobic gram negative bacteria (AGNB), Candida and bacterial endotoxins in the oral cavities of patients receiving chemo- and/or radiotherapy for cancer.MethodsSamples of oral cavity rinse were collected from 100 patients on cancer treatment and 70 healthy individuals. Demographic and clinical data were recorded. Samples were cultured onto various agar plates for qualitative and quantitative analysis and tested for the presence of endotoxin. Results were analysed using the Mann-Whitney and chi-square tests.ResultsIn cancer patients, S. aureus counts were ...

Miles Prince, Christiane QuerfeldAbstractNovel systemic therapies are generally prescribed to patients with advanced-stage disease or those with early-stage disease refractory to skin-directed therapies. In general, systemic chemotherapy should be reserved for patients who fail to respond to biological agents. Such biological agents include interferon alfa, bexarotene, histone deacetylase inhibitors (vorinostat, romidepsin), brentuximab vedotin and mogamulizumab. Extracorporeal photopheresis is particularly ...

AbstractLow molecular weight heparins (LMWHs) are considered the standard of care for the treatment of venous thromboembolism (VTE) associated with cancer. We conducted a meta-analysis to evaluate the safety and efficacy of direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs) in patients with cancer. We systematically searched Medline for potential randomized-control clinical trials (RCTs) and post-hoc analyses. For each study, data on recurrent VTE, major or clinically relevant non-major bleeding (CRNMB), and major bleeding (MB) were extracted. Initially, a total of 1395 citations were identified. Eight studies met our eligibility criteria...

ConclusionsThe expression of both cyclin D1 and p27KIP1 correlated with the grade of oral epithelial dysplasia and degree of OSCC differentiation. The results obtained will be verified through a basic follow-up of the cases to determine the prognosis/progression of oral dysplasia.

Neurotrophins such as nerve growth factor (NGF) have long been identified as drivers of neurogenesis during development and regeneration, but intriguingly they were also known to be expressed in human tumors where they can stimulate cancer cell growth. Recent findings have un...
