DESTROY breast cancer cells in just 15 minutes
It’s a powerful targeted therapy that can SEEK out breast cancer cells and DESTROY them before they ever have a chance to hurt you.
If you have cancer and are taking the “watch and wait” approach, this can slow the tumor’s growth enough that you never need treatment.
If you’re undergoing cancer therapy, this can make it even more effective and boost your odds of survival.
And if you don’t have cancer, this same treatment can make sure it never forms and takes hold.
No, it’s not some new type of radiation… it’s not a drug… and it’s certainly not that poison known as chemo.
It’s a safe and effective “treatment” you can get yourself at any time and from any place you can move your feet… because the new study looked at the cancer-killing power of plain old movement!
In just 15 minutes, you can activate your body’s internal cancer-killing network, sending out a wave of natural chemicals that can drown diseased cells, protect your body, and save your life.
The key isn’t in the gentle exercise that’s so important for all of us.
But it’s also not in running yourself ragged until you’re on the verge of passing out.
You want to move just enough to raise your heart rate and breathe heavily. If you can’t quite have a conversation without pauses to catch your breath, you’re in the right zone.
The new study finds that just 15 minutes of this level of activity triggers a molecular reaction in your body that leads to an increase in potent immune chemicals called catecholamines.
That name might not be familiar, but I’m sure you’ve heard of adrenaline, a.k.a. epinephrine. It’s one of the catecholamines, and the new study finds the adrenaline released by moderate exercise blocks the growth of cancer cells.
In the study, researchers used human breast cancer cells both inside test tubes and implanted in mice. Then, they exposed them to serum taken from women who had just done 15 minutes of exercise.
That serum cut cancer cell growth in half.
It was enough to completely prevent the disease in some mice… and slow it down in others.
Don’t dismiss this study because it was on mice.
Human studies have found similar results, showing how exercise can help prevent breast cancer if you don’t have it… fight the disease if you do… and improve outcomes if you’re undergoing treatment.
The new study takes it to the next level and shows why exercise is so effective, and how even just a moderate level of movement for a short period of time can trigger major benefits.
