Surviving The War On Cancer.
“Has anyone ever heard of a radiologist or surgeon who measured estrogen or the various mediators of inflammation before, during, and after their treatments? Long range survival after breast cancer surgery is affected by the time in the menstrual cycle when the surgery is done.” – Ray Peat Phd
“In 3 of 4 reports from major cancer treatment centres…risk of recurrent cancer and/or death increased 5 to 6-fold after 10 years for women receiving surgery during d7-14 of their cycle, compared to those resected during d21-36.”
Significant improvements in survival were seen in patients receiving surgical treatment during the luteal phase of the cycle – with increased plasma progesterone levels – compared to those with the highest estrogen levels.
Although some studies disagree with the extent to which long term survival rates – for breast cancer surgery patients – are impacted upon by ‘menstrual timing’, there appears to be enough evidence to warrant further investigation. Until otherwise proven, breast cancer surgical procedures should be scheduled to take place during the luteal phase of the cycle, when progesterone levels are at their highest relative to estrogen.
Menstrual timing – apart from being significant in relation to long term breast cancer surgery outcomes – is also relevant as a clue to the important impact of comparative levels of estrogen to progesterone (in the body) on the promotion and development of many types of cancer. Also, it provides additional insight with regards to the potential effectiveness of non surgical treatments such as the use of progesterone (and other safe and effective substances) for breast cancer and cancer in general.
The estrogen suppressing – and most likely progesterone encouraging – effects of aspirin, cyproheptadine and vitamin A (Retinol) have also been demonstrated to be effective against breast cancer. Other safe substances such as testosterone (combined with aromatase inhibition), niacinamide and caffeine have shown good results.
This all makes sense in the context of a physiologically honest and rational explanation regarding the role played by estrogen and progesterone (as well as a variety of inflammatory and stress related substances) in relation to proper metabolic performance and function.
The same rationale can be used to justify the avoidance of unnecessary exposure to radiation and excessive use of the polyunsaturated fats, as well as experimentation with a metabolism enhancing (and stress protective) diet including protein and nutrients from milk and cheese and gelatin, and plenty of sugar from sweet ripe fruit, fruit juice, white sugar and honey.
