The curious case of H. Pylori and chewing gum

Written by Simon Mitchell

Continued from page 1

Over time I cut out wine, coffee, acid-forming foods but with little improvement. I visitedrepparttar doctor's who endorsed these decisions, told me to go out walking more often and to his credit mentioned that 'there is a nasty little bug called H. Pylori going around' - which started this strand of research for me.

Normally doctors will not treat H. Pylori until it provokes serious gastric illness, and when you see what orthodox medicine prescribes for this treatment its no surprise. At least two anti-biotics, H2 blockers, proton pump inhibitors and a stomach lining protector. Although this prescription may be effective it is also expensive, complex and has unwanted toxic side effects such as nausea, diarrhoea and vomiting -meaning that many people do not finishrepparttar 147757 course (patient noncompliance) and remain infected.

The doctor did not prescribe for me - just told me to cut out acidic forming stuff - which I did. But I also started to experiment to see what would bring relief fromrepparttar 147758 continuing symptoms - gastric discomfort, acid reflux, bloating, poor digestion, wind and inflammation. Cutting out wheat based products was most helpful.

Just by 'coincidence' I found out that Pistachio nuts seemed to relieverepparttar 147759 discomfort. It was no surprise when I found out that Mastic Gum, which comes from a related tree called Pistacia lentiscus is a classic remedy for gut inflammation that has been in use for thousands of years. There is increasing evidence that shows Mastic gum to be effective against H. Pylori, with a range of therapeutic effects on various gastric dis-eases. There have never been any undesirable effects attributed torepparttar 147760 use of mastic gum. Since chewing this gum I am now completely relieved of any gastric discomfort.

So as I'm writing this article I am chewing small pieces of mastic gum and have adopted this as part of a preventative 'yearly spring detox' for internal parasites. It has a nice woody taste, not unlikerepparttar 147761 smell of sandal wood or cinnamon. In Mediterranean countries mastic gum has been used for centuries for preventing tooth decay, healing mouth and skin ulcers, controlling diabetes and reducing cholesterol levels. Some African sources even attribute aphrodisiac qualities to this most useful of substances - natural chewing gum !

Please note that this article does not replacerepparttar 147762 advice and treatment of your medical practitioner.

What is cancer?

Some doctors refer to this simply as 'insult'. What happens when you insult a cell so often it gets upset? Just like you or I might do - it gives up onrepparttar host and sets out for itself. Our consumer culture is presently rich in ways for us to insult our cells and stress them without us even realising.

The growth begins when oncogenes (controlling cell growth and multiplication) in a cell or group of cells are 'transformed' by carcinogens. Cell insult often starts with 'free radicals', which are unstable atoms or molecules produced byrepparttar 147756 body as part of its natural defence against disease. Sometimesrepparttar 147757 body over-reacts in its production of these and produces more than it needs. Recognised stressors that can spark overproduction include cigarette smoke, smog or pollution, too much ultraviolet light, illness or even too much exercise!

Free radicals contain a negative charge that makes them highly reactive. As soon as they are produced they start looking for other molecules with positively charged particles. The reaction they have on meeting is called oxidisation, and this reaction can have a harmful effect, damagingrepparttar 147758 D.N.A. inside cells or cell membranes and openingrepparttar 147759 door for cancer.

When a cell is changed into a tumour-forming type,repparttar 147760 change in its oncogenes is passed onto all offspring cells. Hence a small group can become established and then start dividing rapidly. Usually these cells 'give up' on their normal specialised task inrepparttar 147761 body and escape from normal controls such as bodily hormones and nerves.

Cancer has no regard forrepparttar 147762 condition of its host onlyrepparttar 147763 success of its own growth, it is 'anti-synergistic' and a parasite torepparttar 147764 body, consuming nutrients and contributing nothing. It convertsrepparttar 147765 energies around it to its own use and blocks any attacks by suppressingrepparttar 147766 body's own immunity. This immunity self-attack is an emerging pattern in modern diseases.

Cancer cells interact with each other and cells around them. They affectrepparttar 147767 growth of cells nearby and elsewhere inrepparttar 147768 body, they changerepparttar 147769 immune system to benefit themselves, they can avoid or destroy normal body defences such as lymphocytes. They can even persuaderepparttar 147770 body to grow new blood vessels to feed a tumour.

Cancer cells move seemingly 'at will' aroundrepparttar 147771 body, dissolvingrepparttar 147772 glue of healthy cell walls to pass through and set-up camp elsewhere, creating metastases (secondary growths) seemingly anywhere. It is a highly complex disease with over a hundred definable types and many variables within each.

Cancer is a form of chaos that grows inside us. It is no wonder this most frightening and mysterious of diseases is immortalised inrepparttar 147773 'dreaming mechanisms' of our media. Movies such asrepparttar 147774 Alien series capitalise on our fears of something unknown and unwanted growing inside us.

Cell insult happens in a number of ways and ifrepparttar 147775 right conditions for cancer exist it will start to grow through cell multiplication. Oncerepparttar 147776 cancer growth gets going, andrepparttar 147777 conditions that engendered it are still present,repparttar 147778 growth continues at various rates, depending onrepparttar 147779 host and what they provide. Cancer grows best in an P.H. acid body with lots of glucose, oxygen and easily accessible nutrients.

Even with immortal cell replication it can take many years before a cancer becomes noticeable. A million cells together create only a small growth. Diagnosis is still difficult at this stage as there may not be any visible evidence of cancer.
