In theory, being able to detect cancer at stage “0” would allow for 100% prevention (& prevention of recurrence). And if you’re a survivor (like us), then you likely know the anxiety that comes with routine check-ups and scans. We are always looking for innovative tests that may detect that a problem is brewing before there is a single symptom and long before it would show up as a lump or mass on a scan (Stage 0).

THE ADVANTAGE OF STAGE 0
Doctors are now performing innovative tests capable of detecting tumors over a million times smaller than tumors that show up on a CT scan.
Since we know it takes nearly a decade for most tumors to form, these new stage “0” tests are able to detect if the body is out of balance and potentially hospitable to a tumor. At stage “0” there is plenty of time to gently bring the body back into balance, by focusing on theBIG SIX(Diet, Exercise, Supplements, Rest, Rid Toxins, Happiness) and addressing any underlying health concerns, so that a cancer diagnosis can be avoided.
These advanced tests can tells if the body is hospitable to cancer—so natural corrective action can be taken. We’re talking turmeric instead of chemo!
Some people are choosing to include these (less evasive) cancer-screening tests with their annual physical instead of utilizing more invasive tools like mammograms and colonoscopies.
Innovative doctors use a wide range of testing tools to detect whether the body could be hospitable to cancer. Here are a few:
1. High Sensitivity CRP (C Reactive Protein)
C-reactive protein is produced in the liver
Blood test marker for non-specific inflammation in the body
The lower the C-reactive protein, the lower the risk for cardiovascular disease & inflammatory health issues
2. Hemoglobin A1C
Cancer loves sugar
Test is 90 day reflection of blood sugar
3. Cancer Profile
approximately 87-97% accurate
combination of several tests including:
HCG urine test
released by embryos at conception & by cancer cells as a cloak to get past immune system
measures amount of cancer marker HCG in the urine
result under 50 indicates that cancer in the body is unlikely
many patients use this test to monitor their progress monthly
Approximately 70% accurate-- may not detect certain cancers
CEA (Carcinoembryonic Antigen)-a broad-spectrum, non-specific tumor marker. Used as diagnostic adjunct
PHI (Oxygen)- More oxygen = less cancer. PHI is one of the major causes of metastatic spread. Elevation may indicate cancer, virus, heart, liver, or muscle disease
TSH (Thyroid-stimulating hormone)- Hypothyroid may be precursor to cancer
DHEA-S-anti-stress/pro-immunity hormone. Typically very low in cancer patients
