Results and conclusion of this report.woman_shadow

  1. Ganoderma lucidum inhibits cell growth and viability in ovarian cancer cells.
  2. Ganoderma enhances the effect of cisplatin on ovarian cancer cells.
  3. Ganoderma inhibits cell migration and spheroid and colony formation.
  4. Ganoderma induces apoptosis and blocks cell cycle progression at the G2/M phase.
  5. Ganoderma induces p53 activation and inhibits Akt.

Ganoderma has potent anti-tumor effects on chemosensitive and chemoresistant ovarian cancer cells and we uncover potential mechanisms by which Ganoderma regulates cell proliferation, apopptosis and chemosensitivity.

Please call me to meet me if you need more information. I have some testimony and medical report on ovary tumor also.

Symptom Summary

  • Abdominal swelling
  • Lumps or masses in the abdomen
  • Vaginal bleeding
  • Difficult urination
  • Lower back pain

These symptoms are caused by many conditions in addition to ovarian cancer.

An outbreak of acne or growth of hair on the chest or chin with galactorrhea is a symptom requiring urgent medical attention. This combination of symptoms can result from ovarian cysts or ovarian cancer in a relatively early, treatable stage.

Understanding The Disease Process

Most (but not all) epidemiological studies have found that the women at greatest risk of ovarian cancer have the highest dietary consumption of fat and milk products. Women who consume more than 4 eggs per week are nearly twice as likely to develop ovarian cancer as women who consume one of fewer eggs per week. 

Treatment Summary

Note: Nutritional supplementation does not replace medically directed therapy for ovarian cancer.

Understanding the Healing Process

Once ovarian cancer has developed, the most important dietary principle is to ensure adequate calories. Women with ovarian cancer develop a very fast metabolism, and their bodies will convert the protein the muscle tissue into energy if adequate nutrition is not maintained.

Laboratory experiments have found that quercetin and genistein, a soy isoflavone, stop growth of ovarian cancer cells at different stages in their process of multiplication. Do not take quercetin if you are also receiving antibiotic treatment.

Russian laboratory research has found that selenium disables an “unzipping” step critical to the ovarian cancer cell’s replication of the double helix of DNA. Do not take selenium while taking chemotherapy or radiation.

Concepts for Coping with Ovarian Cancer

A recent study for about 20 years concluded that estrogen use is associated with an increased risk of ovarian cancer. In this study, women who used estrogen alone for 10-19 years were twice as likely to develop ovarian cancer than women who did not use hormones during and after menopause.
