Enhancing Patient Immunity to #Fight_Cancer

Despite the fact that they are toxic and carcinogenic, chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery (the “Big 3”) are widely accepted as the standard treatments for cancer.

Additional drugs are utilized to stop the growth of cancer cells, treat side effects from the chemo and radiation, and manage pain.

Throughout traditional cancer treatment, the patient’s body is under attack by the disease and by medical attempts to kill the disease. It is exhausting, dangerous, and the side effects are substantial. Over the past century, despite their abysmal success rates, the “Big 3” treatments have gradually been accepted by the medical community at large as the “standard of care” for treating cancer.

Although they are thought of as “traditional,” they actually are quite new treatments, whereas the treatments that are thought of as “alternative”
(such as herbal remedies) have been used for thousands of years.
Partly due to this bastardizing of the true meaning of these words and partly due to the vast revenues that they generate, the “Big 3” treatments have become the “norm” – unlike most preventative, alternative, and complementary therapies that do not increase industry profit.

The Science of Immunotherapy A new treatment has caught the attention of scientists and doctors. Initial results for the patient are incredible. It’s called immunotherapy and the goal is to empower your own immune system to beat cancer. Those interested in the field of immunology recognize the power of the human body. They’d like to put it to work…doing what it does best.

Director of the Cancer Immunology Program, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Dr. Drew Pardoll, PhD, explained, “After years of research in this field, we began to learn that tumors resisted being eliminated by the patient’s immune system by co-opting inhibitory pathways, thus putting the brakes on the immune response. In fact, the tumors could highly upregulate [increase the response of] molecules that would stop a T cell in its tracks and protect the cancer.”

Immunotherapy involves engineering or enhancing the immune cells of the cancer patient to wipe out cancer cells. This therapy is also called adoptive cell transfer (ACT). Initial clinical trial results have been remarkable.
Significant improvement to overall patient health, elimination of the cancer cells, and remaining cancer free.

Though experts agree that many more studies will need to be done, there is no doubt that the human immune system is up to the challenge if given the right tools. The Living Drug Immunotherapy is considered the “living drug.” Its building blocks are T-cells, which are collected from the blood of the patient. These cells are then altered to create “special receptors” referred to as chimerical antigen receptors (CARs). These CARs are a type of protein that enables the T-cells to attack the antigen – the protein found in cancer cells.

These engineered T-cells are cultured in the lab and allowed to grow to billions in number. Then the CAR T-cells are injected into the patient where, if everything goes well, the T-cells will reproduce, seek out cancer cell antigens, and destroy them. Experimentation on T-cells began in the 1990s when researchers considered it for new cancer treatment. Scientists utilized viral vectors that are deprived of their capacity to produce illness but are still able to join with human DNA to provide the genetic material required for the creation of T-cell receptors. Second and third generations of CARs have monoclonal antibodies, referred to as “single-chain variable fragments” (scFv), which inhabit the surface of the T-cell membrane and associate with the “stimulatory molecules” within the T-cell. The scFv guides the T-cell toward its target – the antigen. Once the T-cell is linked to the antigen, the stimulatory molecules activate the T-cells to annihilate the cancer cells. Today, researchers and specialists are finding ways to generate more powerful T-cells that will completely eliminate cancer cells from the patient’s body. The Benefits of Immunotherapy Experts think ACT could be the answer to B-cell diseases such as chronic lymphocytic leukemia.

Approximately 8-in-10 children who have acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL)
are treated using intensive chemotherapy. However, if the cancer returns after treatment (which is almost always does), the patients are left with no further options. The ACT is a new option for this group of patients. Two trials were conducted for the CAR T-cells. Each patient was injected with engineered T-cells to attack the CD19 antigen, which is on the surface of the B cells. The first trial, referred to as the CHOP trial, was conducted in the University of Pennsylvania. The majority of the patients responded positively to the treatment.
Although 3 out of the 17 participants were diagnosed with cancer again, fourteen remained cancer free. On the second trial conducted at the National Cancer Institute (NCI) by Daniel W. Lee, nine out of fifteen patients responded positively to the treatment. During the trial, two patients received only a small dose of the CAR T-cells compared to the other patients, nevertheless, those patients also reacted to the treatment positively. Side Effects of Immunotherapy The ACT causes bothersome side effects referred to as cytokine-release syndrome.

Engineered T-cells give off cytokines – chemical messengers that aid the T-cells in completing their mission. Excess cytokines in the bloodstream can cause high fever and low blood pressure. In the trials conducted for T-cells, some of the patients experienced the syndrome while others only reported mild side effects. Researchers are putting forth their best efforts to improve the ACT process so it can be used as a standard cancer treatment. If immunotherapy gains ground, as well as the funding and manufacturing ability necessary to administer it, then it will change the face of cancer treatment around the world. We can only hope that it will become more accepted and become oncologists’ first choice to treat their patients – before using toxic chemo drugs, radiation, or surgery.

Personal Development 101 – Part 1
How to Create Good Habits

Setting yourself up to create good habits is a great way to live a better life. To go even further, consider trying to break any bad habits that may be holding you back. These tips will help with both creating good habits and breaking bad ones.

1. Picture Your Future:
A great way to start establishing good habits is to imagine how your life will be when you create those habits. If you are trying to increase wealth and the habit to help you do this is to save, imagine how different your life will be when this is accomplished. You can use this visualization for bad habits as well. If you are a smoker, think about how much better you will feel if you quit after some predefined duration.

2. Take It Slow:
Whatever the habit-forming activity, trying to make it happen too quickly will lead you to become discouraged. For instance, when trying to lose weight, if your goal is to lose 50 pounds in one week, this may not be a realistic goal nor healthy.

3. Work With Others:
When there is a group of people who are all looking to create a certain habit, the chances of succeeding will increase. It’s also more fun when others are involved. The group will offer input that would not otherwise be available doing everything on your own. The group can also help you stay on track. You can help them do the same.

4. Set Backs Are Normal:
There are going to be times when you break whatever habit you are trying to form. This can lead many people to mistakenly believe that it wasn’t meant to be and quit prematurely. In most cases, simply pick up from where you left off until the new habit is firmed established.

5. Make a Plan:
If you plan out the steps required to create your habit, you will find it much easier to follow it. It becomes a matter of simply following the directions that you set out for yourself. If you find other ways that work better, you can make a note of these for future reference.

6. Be Committed:
When you commit to your new habits (or removing old ones), you set a mental note that it is something you want. Sometimes, you will need to reaffirm those commitments. There is research to suggest that if you continue your habits for 21 days, it becomes easier to keep them going after that period. If nothing else, commit to that period.

7. Removing Bad Habits Frees Up Time for Good Ones:
We have only a small amount of time available to us, every day. If you focus your time on your bad habits, you will have less time available to concentrate on creating good habits.

8. Read About Successes of Others:
There is a good chance that others have created the same habits you are trying to do. Read books about the success stories of others. This will reinforce your positive mindset.

Another useful tip: Get in the Habit of Keeping a Journal>

Book Selections:> The Power of Habit:
Mini Habits: Smaller Habits, Bigger Results:

“The chains of habit are generally too small to be felt until they are too strong to be broken.” ~Samuel Johnson

#Yoga is not only #stretching. #Static_stretching will #decrease performance
• Yoga creates #functional_strength that assists us in everyday #activities like #lifting, #bending,
#sitting, #walking.
• Most #yoga_postures, by contrast, are a series of focused and #intense contractions coupled with specific #breathing patterns that yield gains in #flexibility, mobility, and strength
• Use #yoga_stretches on active rest days or after your #training_session for strengthening
• In order to utilize yoga postures for the purpose of #gaining_strength and increasing performance, practice them after your training session so that your body has at least 24 hours to recover from the #poses.
#Although_yoga is restorative, it is still a very intense #physical_practice (when you want it to be) and your #body, #especially your nervous system, #needs time to recover from it.
