The brain is the most important organ in the body. It maintains the optimal performance of your body’s systems – even the functioning of all cells and drops of blood. The brain cancer are primary brain tumors that begin in the brain and rarely spread to other parts of the body, and secondary tumors (metastases), which are caused by cancer that started elsewhere in the body.
When a patient hears the term “tumor” in relation to his brain, there is instant panic and fear. Even a benign (non-cancerous) brain tumor can disrupt key functions of your central nervous system, depending on location and mass.
As we have mentioned, a tumor that develops first in the brain is called a primary tumor. These can form in the actual brain tissue or near the brain in the nerves, the pituitary gland, the pineal gland, or in the shell of the membrane that covers the brain.
Cancer that begins in other parts of the body and spreads to the brain is known as secondary or metastatic. This is the most common form of brain cancer and is usually diagnosed in those who have had some type of cancer in the past. Typical cancers that most frequently metastasize to the brain are breast, colorectal, kidney, lung, and melanoma (the most serious form of skin cancer).

3 main risk factors for brain cancer.
The risk of all cancers (including brain cancer) increases as you get older. More than 75% of all cancers are diagnosed after 55. However, there are certain types of rare tumors that are unique to children.
If someone in your family has had a brain tumor, you increase your risk. However, the number of brain tumors linked to family history is miniscule.
Yes, as one of the three traditional cancer treatments (along with surgery and chemotherapy), radiation therapy increases the risk of brain cancer. This includes radiation from cell phones.
Naturally, there are other risks including lifestyle (smoking and drinking), environmental pollutants, heavy metal toxicity, severe inflammation, and chronic infection.
However, age, family history, and radiation treatments (to “cure” cancer) are what puts you at greater risk of developing a cancerous brain tumor.
What to consider if you have brain cancer?
First of all, never lose hope. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle to prevent disease is the best course of action for total body health. However, if you’ve been diagnosed with brain cancer, consider all your options and choose wisely based on your conditions.
Treatments such as the use of Essiac tea, Hoxsey tea, the paleo diet, vegan and others; Herbal remedies, hyperthermia, and oxygen therapies (just to name a few) should certainly be considered. Interestingly, these “alternative” therapies have been used for thousands of years, so by definition they are actually “traditional”.
Treatments for brain cancer depend on where the tumor is, how large the mass is, and whether it can be safely reached. Oncologists rely almost exclusively on the “big 3” (surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation), despite the fact that radiation is one of the causes of brain cancer. Surprisingly, these “traditional” treatments have been around for less than a century, and their success rate is less than 5%, so they really should be referred to as “alternative” treatments. If you are going to use any of these therapies, check when it is right to do it and if it is really very necessary.
The treatment includes the methodology such as acupuncture and meditation to control the side effects of these 3 traditional treatments that we have mentioned and have shown excellent results. There are other cutting-edge therapies that you will have to consider if you are diagnosed with brain cancer.
It is important to do your homework. Know your body, understand its risks, and protect yourself in as many ways as possible from all forms of cancer and other serious diseases.
Putting prevention techniques into practice could reduce the incidence of cancer by more than half. Big Pharma, and the cancer industry don’t want you to know. They don’t want you to take care of your body and avoid most cancers through natural methods, such as lifestyle and diet changes. That would affect your earnings.
