This Miraculous Way To Cure Breast Cancer Offers Hope For Women

This Miraculous Way To Cure Breast Cancer Offers Hope For Women

According to BreastCancer.org about 1 in 8 women in the US will develop invasive breast cancer in their lifetime. It’s estimated that 246,660 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed in 2016. Furthermore, there will be 2.8 million women in the US this year with a history of breast cancer, which also includes women who are currently undergoing breast cancer treatment. Breast cancer is, together with skin cancer, the most frequently diagnosed type of cancer in American women. These figures are staggering which is why scientists are working hard on studies about possible treatments for breast cancer. New, groundbreaking research reveals that new therapy could kill breast cancer cells in 11 days. To find out more about this miraculous way of treating breast cancer, keep reading this article.

How does new breast cancer therapy work?

The study presented at the European Breast Cancer Conference in Amsterdam demonstrated a new, miraculous treatment for breast cancer. Team of researchers led by Professor Nigel Bundred of the University of Manchester conducted a study which included 257 women who had been diagnosed with HER2 positive breast cancer and were waiting for surgery.

The study was divided into two different parts. First part included 130 women who were assigned to three different groups:

  • Women who received Herceptin

  • Women who received laptinib

  • Women who didn’t receive any treatment prior surgery.

Women from first two groups were treated for 11 days after diagnosis and before their surgery. During the course of their study, scientists realized that giving both drugs together was better than giving either drug alone. That motivated researchers to make some alterations in their study and start with the next part.

They recruited 127 women who were divided either to:

  • Control group

  • Herceptin group

  • Herceptin and laptinib group.

All participants underwent surgery 11 days after the treatment. Then, scientists analyzed the resulting tissue to inspect whether there were any differences between the groups. In 11% of women from the combination therapy group the tumors disappeared completely (less than 2 weeks after they were diagnosed). In 17% of patients from the same group tumors significantly decreased and classified as minimal residual disease and their size was less than 5mm.

Telegraph.co.uk reports that scientists aren’t quite sure how the mechanism works but they assume it is combination of two different forces (drugs) that blocks cancer cells from multiplying, kills them off thus sparking immune response.

This groundbreaking therapy would cost about $2145 and could save thousands of women from breast cancer and chemotherapy. Chemotherapy is well-known for a wide array of side effects such as hair loss, vomiting, fatigue, and even reduced cognitive functions. This type of breast cancer treatment takes a several months to complete and success is not guaranteed.

The fact that this type of treatment has the potential to destroy cancer cells in 11 days, less than two weeks, gives hopes to millions of women worldwide that they have high chances for survival and fighting breast cancer effectively.

Although the price of this treatment sounds expensive, due to shortness of this therapy the overall costs would be incredibly small.

Symptoms of breast cancer

The most common breast cancer symptoms include:

  • Change in size or shape of the breast

  • Lump or thickening that feels different from the rest of the breast tissue

  • Skin Redness and rash on the skin and/or around nipple

  • Change in skin texture i.e. dimpling or puckering

  • Discharge from nipple

  • Inverted nipple or nipple that changes its shape or position

  • Swelling in the armpit or around the collarbone

  • Pain in the breast or armpit.

Other signs you shouldn’t ignore are:

  • Sudden weight loss when not dieting

  • Muscle weakness

  • Jaundice

  • Shortness of breath

  • Loss of appetite.

It is highly important to perform self-exams regularly and consulting your healthcare provider as soon as you notice changes in your breasts, texture, shape etc. Diagnosing breast cancer at its early stages significantly increases your chances of beating it fast and successively.

Conclusion

New studies about treatments for breast cancer give hope to millions of women that they can get rid of cancer without chemotherapy and its side effects. Researchers combined two drugs that are used for treating breast cancer and the results were remarkable. They realized that cancer cells disappeared in 11 days in some patients while in others size of cancer decreased significantly. To increase your chances of beating breast cancer, it’s important to consult your doctor as soon as you spot some changes in breasts or nipples. The new treatment could revolutionize the way breast cancer is treated.

How to Get out of a Rut: 12 Useful Ways to Get Unstuck

How to Get out of a Rut: 12 Useful Ways to Get Unstuck

Have you gotten into a rut before? Or are you in a rut right now?

You know you’re in a rut when you run out of ideas and inspiration. I personally see a rut as a productivity vacuum. It might very well be a reason why you aren’t getting results. Even as you spend more time on your work, you can’t seem to get anything constructive done. While I’m normally productive, I get into occasional ruts (especially when I’ve been working back-to-back without rest). During those times, I can spend an entire day in front of the computer and get nothing done. It can be quite frustrating.

Over time, I have tried and found several methods that are helpful to pull me out of a rut. If you experience ruts too, whether as a working professional, a writer, a blogger, a student or other work, you will find these useful. Here are 12 of my personal tips to get out of ruts:

1. Work on the small tasks.

When you are in a rut, tackle it by starting small. Clear away your smaller tasks which have been piling up. Reply to your emails, organize your documents, declutter your work space, and reply to private messages.

Whenever I finish doing that, I generate a positive momentum which I bring forward to my work.

2. Take a break from your work desk.

Get yourself away from your desk and go take a walk. Go to the washroom, walk around the office, go out and get a snack.

Your mind is too bogged down and needs some airing. Sometimes I get new ideas right after I walk away from my computer.

3. Upgrade yourself

Take the down time to upgrade yourself. Go to a seminar. Read up on new materials (#7). Pick up a new language. Or any of the 42 ways here to improve yourself.

The modern computer uses different typefaces because Steve Jobs dropped in on a calligraphy class back in college. How’s that for inspiration?

4. Talk to a friend.

Talk to someone and get your mind off work for a while.

Talk about anything, from casual chatting to a deep conversation about something you really care about. You will be surprised at how the short encounter can be rejuvenating in its own way.

5. Forget about trying to be perfect.

If you are in a rut, the last thing you want to do is step on your own toes with perfectionist tendencies.

Just start small. Do what you can, at your own pace. Let yourself make mistakes.

Soon, a little trickle of inspiration will come. And then it’ll build up with more trickles. Before you know it, you have a whole stream of ideas.

6. Paint a vision to work towards.

If you are continuously getting in a rut with your work, maybe there’s no vision inspiring you to move forward.

Think about why you are doing this, and what you are doing it for. What is the end vision in mind?

Make it as vivid as possible. Make sure it’s a vision that inspires you and use that to trigger you to action.

7. Read a book (or blog).

The things we read are like food to our brain. If you are out of ideas, it’s time to feed your brain with great materials.

Here’s a list of 40 books you can start off with. Stock your browser with only the feeds of high quality blogs, such as Lifehack.org, DumbLittleMan, Seth Godin’s Blog, Tim Ferris’ Blog, Zen Habits or The Personal Excellence Blog.

Check out the best selling books; those are generally packed with great wisdom.

8. Have a quick nap.

If you are at home, take a quick nap for about 20-30 minutes. This clears up your mind and gives you a quick boost. Nothing quite like starting off on a fresh start after catching up on sleep.

9. Remember why you are doing this.

Sometimes we lose sight of why we do what we do, and after a while we become jaded. A quick refresher on why you even started on this project will help.

What were you thinking when you thought of doing this? Retrace your thoughts back to that moment. Recall why you are doing this. Then reconnect with your muse.

10. Find some competition.

Nothing quite like healthy competition to spur us forward. If you are out of ideas, then check up on what people are doing in your space.

Colleagues at work, competitors in the industry, competitors’ products and websites, networking conventions.. you get the drill.

11. Go exercise.

Since you are not making headway at work, might as well spend the time shaping yourself up.

Sometimes we work so much that we neglect our health and fitness. Go jog, swim, cycle, whichever exercise you prefer.

As you improve your physical health, your mental health will improve, too. The different facets of ourselves are all interlinked.

Here’re 15 Tips to Restart the Exercise Habit (and How to Keep It).

12. Take a good break.

Ruts are usually signs that you have been working too long and too hard. It’s time to get a break.

Beyond the quick tips above, arrange for a 1-day or 2-days of break from your work. Don’t check your (work) emails or do anything work-related. Relax and do your favorite activities. You will return to your work recharged and ready to start.

Contrary to popular belief, the world will not end from taking a break from your work. In fact, you will be much more ready to make an impact after proper rest. My best ideas and inspiration always hit me whenever I’m away from my work.
