A Natural Approach To Health
Living With Uterine Cancer
I had a question the other day about uterine cancer.
Uterine cancer is the growth of abnormal cells in the lining of the uterus.
The lining is called the endometrium.
Endometrial cancer is also called cancer of the uterus, or uterine cancer.
Endometrial cancer usually occurs in women older than 50.
The good news is it’s usually cured when it’s found early.
And most of the time, the cancer is found in its earliest stage, before it has spread outside the uterus.
The most common cause of uterine cancer is having too much of the hormone estrogen compared to the hormone progesterone in your body.
This hormone imbalance causes the lining of the uterus to get thicker and thicker.
If the lining builds up and stays that way, then cancer cells can start to grow.
Women who have this hormone imbalance over time may be more likely to get endometrial cancer after age 50.
The most common symptoms include:
>Bleeding or vaginal discharge not related to your period.
>Pain during sex.
Uterine cancer is usually diagnosed with a biopsy.
The main treatment for uterine cancer is surgery to remove the uterus plus the cervix, ovaries, and fallopian tubes.
Other treatments include radiation therapy, hormone therapy, or chemotherapy.
To deal with uterine cancer, it’s beneficial to:
*Drink 6-8 cups of purified water daily to keep hydrated and flush toxins, whether thirsty or not. Add Performance for electrolytes.
*Increase life-giving, enzyme and nutrient rich fresh, raw fruits and veggies; organic whenever possible; consider juicing.
