Colorectal cancer. The name alone is enough to drive fear into anyone’s heart – because this form of cancer KILLS close to 1,000 Americans every week.
But you shouldn’t live in fear of colon cancer.
And you certainly don’t need to treat it as a DEATH sentence!
The latest research reveals a natural therapy that could help even in the most desperate situations.
That’s when you’re locked in a life-or-death battle with an advanced colorectal cancer tumor. And it’s when most mainstream docs will tell you all hope is lost and it’s time to make sure your affairs are in order.
But the new study shows how you could make something else instead.
You can MAKE PLANS for the future. Because you could still have plenty of good living ahead with this all-natural secret.
Put the brakes on colon cancer with D
The new study focused on people with the most serious form of the disease. They had metastatic colorectal cancer.
In other words, they had cancer that had started to spread but hadn’t been treated … likely because it hadn’t been detected yet (this is why you should never put off that colonoscopy).
All of them were given standard chemo along with an all-natural extra: ordinary vitamin D, in doses you can buy in any vitamin shop.
Some started out with 8,000 IU per day for two weeks, then dropped to 4,000 IU per day. The rest got a minimal dose of just 400 IU per day to serve as a control group.
BEAT colorectal cancer & SURVIVE the deadliest tumors
The difference was night and day.
The patients who got high doses of D were 36 percent less likely to die or suffer from disease progression over the following two years.
Remember, colorectal cancer is notoriously tough to stop once it metastasizes.
Yet the sunshine vitamin put it on ice.
Even when it did progress, it took longer in the high-D group. In fact, the high dose group had a delay in the disease of 13 months. Compare that to just 11 months in the folks who got the low doses.
And that’s not the only way D can help.
If you DON’T have colorectal cancer, proper levels of the sunshine vitamin can help cut your risk.
A study just last year – billed as the largest of its kind – found that falling short could raise your risk by nearly a third. And, conversely, boosting your levels will cut your risk of the disease.
Given that most people don’t spend nearly as much time in the sun as they should (and that you can risk sunburn if you overdo it), adding a D supplement to your daily routine is a good idea.
And if you, or a loved one, is fighting colorectal cancer ask your doctor about adding vitamin D therapy to your treatment plan.
