About Cancer Defeated!
Boost Your Sagging Immune System
Shocked doctors were forced to eat crow
"Congratulations! You're cancer free!" declared Rev. Cobus Rudolph's doctor after Rev. Rudolph used the secrets found in The 31-Day Home Cancer Cure to get rid of his "hopeless" stage four colon cancer.
These proven immunity-boosters are long-chain polysaccharides (aka, complex sugars). They're found in the cell walls of bacteria, yeasts, fungi, and plants like oats or barley. You can also find them in several medicinal mushrooms, like maitake. The supplement is an entirely natural extract from these plants or microorganisms.
Beta glucans have had a good reputation as an alternative treatment for decades, but nowadays they're gaining ground as a treatment in allopathic clinics. They're also being used to treat several ailments beyond cancer, including high cholesterol and diabetes.
But the biggest advantage Beta glucans offer is their ability to strengthen the immune system. They're considered particularly effective in cases of weakened immunity, such as from stress or chronic fatigue.
For cancer sufferers, Beta glucans make a significant difference if your immunity levels are sagging following treatments like chemotherapy and radiation.
30 years of scrutiny bode well
Beta glucan can be administered several different ways. Healthcare providers may give beta glucans by IV or by an injection directly into your muscle if the goal is to treat cancer. The supplement may also be given as a shot under the skin at the site of a skin tumor, the goal being to reduce the size of the tumor.
Otherwise, it can be taken as a food additive. You can sprinkle it on your salad or dessert, or just take it as a pill or capsule. Some supplement makers claim Beta glucans are best absorbed when taken by mouth because the particles of the supplement are "micronized" to a size smaller than one micron, but we're still waiting on evidence that supports that claim.
As to whether Beta glucan as an immunity booster can be trusted, the answer is yes. Researchers have scrutinized the treatment for over thirty years, especially as it relates to the immune system and its effect on cancer. In Japan, extracts with various portions of Beta glucan have been used to treat cancer patients for the last 20 years.
How Beta glucan mobilizes your immune systemHere's how it works: If cancer or cancer treatments have compromised your immune system, Beta glucans task themselves with getting you back up and running. It's believed that Beta glucans — especially when given through injection — can stimulate the immune system by boosting chemicals that fight infections and foreign invaders like cancer.
Where to find the most potent variety
The good news is that Beta glucan supplements are easy to get a hold of these days, thanks to improvements in manufacturing. In other words, they're much more affordable than in the past.
So if you take Beta glucan outside a healthcare environment (that is, injection or IV treatment is not a prospect), then the best approach is to buy it in supplement form. Pill sizes typically range up to 500 mg. An "average" dose would be 1500 mg a day (one pill with each meal). Many advocates of Beta glucan believe it works most effectively in conjunction with a healthy diet (what doesn't?)
At this point, no side effects have been reported. But I have a caveat on that one: When I take it I get really wired — hyper during the day and not able to sleep well at night. Whether my response is typical, I can't say.
Beta glucan as a manufactured supplement usually comes from baker's yeast, which is regarded as safe by the FDA. There also aren't any known conflicts between Beta glucan and other medications.
Some supplements that offer Beta glucan get their extract from mushrooms or cereal grains (or both). But many advocates believe Beta glucan extracted from yeast is the most potent form you can get. The main difference appears to be that mushroom-based Beta glucan is absorbed in the stomach while yeast-based Beta glucan is absorbed through the intestines.
Of the two, mushroom-based Beta glucan has been in use for a much longer period of time than yeast, and is the form commonly found throughout Asia as a cancer treatment.
Ensure that your cancer will not recur
Beta glucan doesn't kill cancer cells directly, so it's worth looking into other treatments that directly attack cancer cells. But if you want to support your immune system so it's better able to do the work it takes to get rid of cancer, then this is something worth trying.
Cancer can't thrive if your immune system is strong. Plus, without support for your immune system, there's a greater chance your cancer will resurface — even years after you've been declared "cancer-free." There's really no downside to using a supplement like this, particularly since it works fine in combination with other alternative therapies, and even with conventional therapies.
I recommend looking into it, since the upside to taking Beta glucan — that is, having a vibrant and powerful immune system — is tremendous.
