Glutamate Activates Breast Cancer

By Tuesday, 05 August 2014 03:59 PM Current | Bio | Archive

Q: Last year, I had a mastectomy on my right breast, but cancer came back. I’ve had surgery again. How can I keep the cancer from returning?
— Linda M., Atlanta, Ga.
A: Glutamate plays a significant role in breast cancer invasion and spread, so one should avoid all glutamate food additives, such as MSG, soy products, hydrolyzed proteins, caseinate, and others.
Curcumin, quercetin, resveratrol, vitamin D3, and ellagic acid are all powerful inhibitors of breast cancer growth.
Q: My 26-year-old son is desperately trying to wean off suboxone after a drug addiction to opiates. But he becomes depressed when off the drug. Can you offer an alternative?
— Marilyn B., Santa Clara, Calif.
A: Modern psychiatric treatment consists of far too many doctors offering to replace one drug addiction for another. But there are other ways. The first, most important step is to clean up one’s diet as the most important step. This means avoiding all processed foods, junk foods, and especially foods containing glutamate additives.
Glutamate is a major driving force in all addictions. It does this by acting on critical brain areas known to drive addictive behavior. Glutamate and inflammation also play a major role in depression.
A diet high in vegetables, with some fruits, and low in carbohydrates that are high on the glycemic index (a measure of how much a food raises the blood glucose level) will go a long way in aiding recovery from addiction. High sugar diets almost always increase addictive behavior.
In addition, drink lots of purified water and white tea. Some supplements — such as zinc, magnesium, Gotu Kola, L-theanine, and tyrosine — will help boost mood and relieve depression.
Q: You wrote that vitamin C has been shown to be effective in treating some patients with multiple sclerosis. Is there any known harm that can come from trying this treatment?
— Vivian D., Decatur, Ga.
A: In general, the answer is no, but there are some rare side effects. Multiple sclerosis is an autoimmune disease, but its major pathological effects appear to be chronic activation of microglia and immunoexcitotoxicity.
A number of natural substances reduce this process. These include curcumin, quercetin, ellagic acid, NAC, magnesium, DHA oil, EGCG (an extract from green tea) and vitamin D3.
All of these substances have been shown to improve symptoms in multiple sclerosis patients, and when they are used together, one sees much better results. A change in diet is also essential.
Eating fresh fruits and vegetables, removing glutamate additives, and removing excessive omega-6 oils from one’s diet will help against MS.
