Endometrial Cancer Supplementation Plan

About Endometrial Cancer

About 2.7 percent of women will be diagnosed with endometrial cancer at some point during their lifetime, based on the SEER 2008-2010 data.
Endometrial cancer is the most common malignancy of women in developed countries, and its incidence is 10 times higher than in developing countries.
81.1% of women with endometrial cancer have a 5 year survival rate.[1]
Endometrial cancer is heavily influenced by estrogen exposure, therefore it is found in higher amounts in women with early start of menstrual cycle, no children and late menopause.
Maintain a healthy weight as obesity is related to an increased risk of estrogen dependent cancers.

A number of risk factors are known to be associated with endometrial cancer occurrence, with different risk factors among different age groups. Endometrial cancer occurs much more frequently in post- menopausal women.[2] Among the most well-established risk factors include:
• A history of cancer in the family, particularly a first degree relative.
• Tamoxifen use for breast cancer. Women with breast cancer who take the hormone therapy drug tamoxifen have an increased risk of developing endometrial cancer.
• Starting menses prior to age 12 and having no pregnancies significantly increases the risk.
• Hereditary nonpolyposis colorectal cancer (HNPCC) is a syndrome that increases the risk of endometrial cancer. HNPCC occurs because of a gene mutation from parents to their offspring.
Risk factors for older women:
• Taking hormones after menopause that contain estrogen but not progesterone increases the risk of endometrial cancer. Unopposed estrogen is associated with increased risk of endometrial hyperplasia at all doses, and durations of therapy between one and three years.[3]
Other known risk factors include:
• Alcohol intake
• Higher amounts of dietary fat
• Elevated blood sugar – overweight women with an elevated blood glucose had over a 2.5 fold increase (260%) in risk for female reproductive cancers, while overweight women with a normal glucose had only a 70% increase in risk.[4]
• High percentage of body fat
Practice mindfulness-based stress reduction, like breathing techniques, yoga, Pilates and meditation.

Physical symptoms There is not one lab test to diagnose endometrial cancer, rather it is most often suspected from initial physical exam and history. It is estimated that 90% of women with endometrial cancer experience changes in their menses, vaginal bleeding, or experience post-menopausal vaginal bleeding and 10% of endometrial cancers present as a non-blood discharge. Later stages of the cancer may show up as pain in the pelvis, feeling a mass in the abdomen or pelvis, and losing weight without trying.
Noninvasive methods: Ultrasound of the pelvic region and endometrial cytology (cell study).
Invasive methods: Dilatation and curettage (D&C); endometrial biopsy and hysteroscopy with biopsy of the endometrium (uterine lining).

Exercise often. It has been established that exercise reduces endometrial cancer risk.[5]

1. 4 or more daily servings of fruits and vegetables that are orange or yellow, which provide beta carotene (peppers, squashes and carrots for example). Tomatoes and watermelon are rich sources of lycopene.
2. Whole foods (foods that are as close to their natural form as possible)
3. Low sugar/low glycemic diet: (Glycemic index (GI) and glycemic load (GL) are measures of the effect on blood glucose level after a food containing carbohydrates is consumed)
4. Omega-3 fatty acids, found in cold water fish such as sardines, wild-caught salmon, cod, mackerel, tuna
5. High fiber, from whole grains, beans, vegetables and fruits
6. Healthy fats, from avocados, nuts, seeds, olive oil, coconut oil, cold water fish
7. For animal protein, choose lean poultry and fish over red meat, and aim to view meat as a condiment rather than a staple. Try to choose grass fed and organic meats and eggs whenever possible. Eat no fish larger than a salmon to minimize environmental contaminants, including mercury.[6]
8. Having one to two servings of whole soy foods each day may prove beneficial (as long as the soy is GMO free). Try non GMO soymilk as a beverage as well as edamame, tempeh, tofu, roasted soy nuts and soy nut butter. Traditional fermented soy foods, such as miso, tempeh, and natto, are particularly beneficial.
1. Processed and grilled meats. Also, try to limit intake of red meat to avoid excess estrogens.
2. Insulin plays a role in a women’s estrogen balance so eliminate refined sugar, processed flours, artificial sweeteners and sugary beverages to keep blood sugar under control.
3. Fast foods, fried foods, baked goods and packaged, processed foods
4. Limit or avoid alcohol. In most studies that have looked at alcohol consumption and risk of most cancer, regular consumption is linked with increased cancer risk.

Hemp Oil 1800 Fortified Capsules

  •  Capsules are based on SatiMedTM Botanical Formula Plus, and include an essential combination of herbal compounds from the Hemp, Cinnamon, Mint, Balm, and Chamomile plants, and are formulated in natural Hemp Seed oil.
  • Suggested dose: 2-4 capsules per day before the meal.

Omega-3 Fatty Acids

  • Omega-3 fatty acids, DHA and EPA, have been shown to exert numerous anti-cancer effects on breast cancer cells. Human studies are limited on endometrial cancer but one did recently establish that dietary PUFA and DHA inhibited endometrial cancer cell proliferation, colony formation, and migration, and promoted cell-programmed death (apoptosis) in animal and in-vitro models.[18] Additionally, GLA, another omega-3, helps to maintain balance in the fatty acids and enhances the anti-inflammatory effect.[19],[20]
  • Suggested dose: 2-3 grams combined EPA & DHA per day, with at least 1-2 grams of a GLA source.

Cellular Pro

  • Cellular Pro provides pterostilbene, a methylated resveratrol that occurs naturally in berries. This formula also contains resveratrol, curcumin and vitamin D3 , which compliment pterostilbene in supporting metabolic health. Ptersotilbene targets PPAR alpha, which plays important roles in lipid metabolism. Reserveratrol supports mitochondrial function by promoting the actions of SIRT1, a cellular enzyme that contributes to healthy aging.*
  • Suggested usage: As a dietary supplement, adults take 1 capsule daily.

Pterostilbene & Resveratrol

  • This antioxidant interferes with all stages of cancer development, and its low bioavailability may make it more suitable for colorectal cancer.[22] When given to patients with colorectal cancer at a dose of 500-1000mg per day, it reduced tumor proliferation.[23]
  • Suggested dose: 500-100 mg per day.

Vitamin D

  • Vitamin D levels are associated with the risk of most hormone cancers, including endometrial cancers. Studies on human cells demonstrate that vitamin D protects against endometrial cancer progression.[7],[8]Individuals with a history of lymphoma should also monitor 1,25 dihydroxy-vitamin D levels, as rapid conversion to this active form has been observed.
  • Suggested dose is that sufficient to raise vitamin D blood levels to >40 ng/mL, which may require 5000 IU per day or more.[9]

Magnesium 400 FORTIFIED

  • Magnesium 400 FORTIFIED Capsules are based on SatiMedTM Botanical Formula Plus, and include an essential combination of high absorption Magnesium bisglycinate complex, Piperine and Vitamin B6.
  • Magnesium 400 FORTIFIED supports normal physiologic function, nervous system, muscles and bones, reduces tiredness and fatigue. Vitamin B-6 (pyridoxine) is important for normal brain function and for keeping the nervous system and immune system healthy.
