Receiving a cancer diagnosis is terrifying. Time stands still while your head spins with all the decisions that need to be made. There are so many options to consider. Emotions run high and fear of the unknown is palpable. These feelings are normal, for both the patient, and their families.In today’s post I want to outline the benefits of PectaSol-C for cancer. It’s safe, gentle, effective and provides multiple benefits for those suffering, not only from cancer, but other diseases as well.
What Is PectoSol-C?
When you hear the word “pectin” you probably think of making jam. And, that’s true, thickening occurs when pectin and sugar are combined and heated. Pectin is a polysaccharide found in apples, berries, and citrus fruit, and cannot be absorbed by the digestive tract. Modified citrus pectin is derived from the peel and pulp of citrus fruits, and is easily absorbed into the blood stream, due to an enzymatic modification process, and also its low-molecular weight.
PectoSol-C (MCP) is a modified citrus pectin supplement that is highly effective for many conditions, including cancer, diabetes, obesity, heart disease, stroke, or any condition that is inflammatory in nature. It also promotes a healthy immune response, because it helps natural killer cells and white blood cells, to carry out their functions more efficiently. It was developed and patented by Dr. Isaac Eliaz, and has been highly researched. Watch the video below for more information.
What is Galectin-3?
Galectin-3 is a chemical in the body, normally found in small amounts, which regulates cellular growth and development, and is beneficial in repair processes, such as wound healing and the development of scar tissue. Not only are high levels indicative of disease states, but research is now revealing its causative role as well. The expression of galectin-3 is associated with inflammatory cells, including macrophages, neutrophils, and mast cells.
Elevated levels of galectin-3 are also correlated with interleukin-6 and C-reactive protein – both inflammatory markers. When over expressed, galectins are implicated in a variety of health conditions, and more notably for this post, in the aggregation, proliferation, and metastases of cancer cells. If you have cancer, or any other inflammatory condition, the goal is to lower galectin-3.
Galectin 3 And Cancer
By blocking galectin-3, MCP inhibits several of the mechanisms that allow cancer to develop. One of the mechanisms in which galectin-3 promotes cancer is decreased apoptosis, or programmed cell death.
This is important because dysfunctional cells are eliminated through this protective process. A distinguishing feature of cancer is that malignant cells are able to evade apoptosis, allowing unhealthy cells to survive.
Galectin-3 is an adhesion molecule that allows cancer cells to clump together. Circulating tumor cells in the bloodstream use this adhesive quality of galectin-3 to attach to blood vessel walls. This process initiates metastases.
Without this adhesion process, circulating tumor cells are eliminated by white blood cells, and can’t cause damage. One drawback of tumor removal during surgery is the potential for increased cell adhesion.
MCP Is Anti-Angiogenesis
This inhibition of metastases is another mechanism through which MCP prevents cancer. One reason cancer is so lethal, is its ability to spread and when it does, it becomes far more dangerous and life threatening. Decreased immune function is another promoter of metastases. MCP supports healthy immunity, and inhibits the spread of cancer. It also suppresses angiogenesis, or the formation of new blood vessels, that nourish cancer cells. MCP has the ability to essentially cut off this blood supply that fuels cancer growth.
PectaSol-C Is A Natural Chelator
Heavy metals are everywhere. They’re found in pesticides, industrial pollution, tap water, cookware, cleaning products, makeup, car exhaust, cigarette smoke, and, of course, mercury fillings. We’re bombarded with them on a daily basis. MCP is a natural chelator, meaning it pulls heavy metals from the blood and tissues. Chelate means to “grab onto.” Unlike other chelators, such as, EDTA, DMPS, and DMSA, MCP can be used safely even if the patient has mercury fillings or metal implants in their mouth.
The last thing anyone wants is mercury floating around in their bloodstream, due to improper chelation. MCP does not leach essential minerals from the body, as is typical of other chelators, and can be safely used by children. Prolonged exposure to heavy metals increases cancer risk through immune suppression, and inhibited detoxification capacity.
To prevent and treat cancer, removal of these harmful chemicals is essential. MCP is an great detoxifier, and has been proven to reduce heavy metal-burden. Toxic metals, such as, mercury, lead, and cadmium can be safely removed while supporting the body’s detoxification pathways. This frees up the immune system to exert its magic where it’s needed.
Benefits Of PectaSol-C For Cancer
- Halts growth of cancer cells
- Blocks the growth of solid tumors
- Chelates heavy metals
- Increases apoptosis or programmed cell death
- Inhibits angiogenesis
- Inhibits metastasis
- Promotes healthy immunity
- Helps with fibrotic conditions as it is a fibrotic precursor
- Can be used even if mercury fillings and metal implants are present
As most chronic degenerative diseases are inflammatory in nature, everyone can benefit from this natural compound which binds and inactivates galectin-3, promoting overall health.
With the ever-increasing assault of heavy metals into the environment, this gentle chelator should be a staple supplement in everyone’s arsenal. It is a powerful supporter of the immune system, can be used preventatively, and is safe to take on a regular basis.
The goal of any complementary cancer protocol is to turn cancer into a chronic condition instead of a terminal one. Using PectaSol-C for cancer is one way to further this goal.
