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.

10 Cheap And Amazing Honeymoon Ideas

10 Cheap And Amazing Honeymoon Ideas

A honeymoon is important.  The wedding is over.  The months, or even years, of stress and planning are finally over.  It’s time for the two of you to relax, settle in, and start enjoying your time together as you embark on your first journey as a family.

To make the most of this time for the least amount of money, it’s important to focus on what you want out of a honeymoon.  This isn’t your typical list of touristy honeymoon locations everyone goes to.  Rather, it’s a list of cheap honeymoon experiences a couple can enjoy together, regardless of where it’s at.

1. Camping

A week long camping trip is a fantastic way to see how you mesh together as a couple.  You’re put in a low impact “survival” situation where it’s just the 2 of you and nature.  You have a chance to see how your new spouse handles themselves when left with the basics of life.  There are amazing national parks all over the United States where you can camp for a week for $20-30, disconnect from technology, and enjoy some of the natural wonders our nation has to offer.

2. Staycation

You don’t have to go anywhere for a honeymoon.  In fact, the tradition of taking a honeymoon vacation is a relatively new one.  Prior to the 19th century, a honeymoon involved staying home together for a month to get to know each other physically.  Think of how blissful it could be to take a full month off work, disconnect from the outside world, and focus entirely on projects together.  You may not be wowing your friends and family with pictures of some exotic location, but they’ll be envious of your escape from the rat race nonetheless.

3. Island Getaway

People tend to overspend on their honeymoon vacations to Hawaii, Tahiti, etc.  Going to these places doesn’t have to be expensive.  You don’t need to stay in a 5 star resort when you’re on a Best Western budget.  You’re there to be in the atmosphere of the island, not a hotel room. Book a cheap flight and sleep in a hotel alternative, on the beach or in your car.  It’s the view in paradise that really matters.

4. Fancy Resort

Book an expensive resort, spa, or retreat in the city you live in.  While this may seem counterintuitive as a cheap destination, when you consider your savings on airfare and other travel costs, you can afford to be treated like royalty within your own city limits.  If you book a honeymoon package, you’ll end up with a lot of free amenities and extra attention.  There’s no need to fly halfway across the world to live the good life.

5. Road Trip

The journey is often more fulfilling than the actual destination.  If you fly out to some exotic locale, you’ll be stuck on a plane for 8-30 hours.  Rent a luxury car, pick a handful of places you each have always wanted to visit, and go on an adventure.  You can keep food costs down by packing your own snacks, but it’s always a good idea to sample the local delicacies wherever you go, even if it’s only a few states over.

6. Charter a Boat

If the ocean is your thing, a week-long cruise can cost you $1500-$3000 per person, depending on the destination.  You also have to factor in travel costs to and from the cruise, alcohol, souvenirs, and on-shore excursions.  You’ll also be surrounded by people.  For the same price (and often much cheaper), you can charter your own boat and enjoy the experience in private.

7. Las Vegas/Atlantic City

If gambling is your thing, these are the places to do it.  Which one you choose depends on your preference, budget, and proximity.  The way to make this vacation cheaper is to gamble smart.  Stay away from low odd tables (i.e craps, roulette) and read up on the MIT blackjack strategies to beat the house.  If you do it right, you can win enough for a free trip (and gain a valuable team skill in the process).

8. Themed Retreats

There are weeklong retreats all over the world where you can fully immerse yourselves as a couple into a hobby you’re both passionate about.  Go on a yoga/meditation retreat, a ranch, a vineyard/farm, a backpacking adventure, treasure hunt, or whatever you’re into.

9. Working Honeymoon

Your honeymoon doesn’t have to be a vacation.  For a truly memorable experience, dedicate a week to a charity or volunteer organization.  You can drive out to a campground to help restore it in the offseason.  Maybe you’ve always wanted to volunteer to help out your local animal shelter, plant trees, help the homeless, etc.  Use the time to do something together as a couple that will fulfill you spiritually while contributing to the community.  Just because you’re on a honeymoon doesn’t mean you can’t be productive.

10. Festivals, Fairs & Special Events

Every city, state, and country has festivals, fairs, and special events.  Find one you’re interested in.  If you time your wedding right, your honeymoon can be a trip to one of these festivals.  Burning Man, SXSW, Bonnaroo, the Renaissance Fair, regional harvest festivals, Mardi Gras, New Years Eve in Times Square, a movie premiere, or whatever you’re into.  If you plan your honeymoon at the right time in the right place, the possibilities are endless.
