The modern healthcare establishment would like you to believe that there is only one true way to handle any health issues that you may face in your life. They have powerful marketing and lobbying teams, and they work very hard to protect themselves and their methods. However, there actually are alternative therapies that can be extremely useful to those who are suffering some of this world’s most challenging ailments. For example, there are alternative and natural remedies for colon cancer that can help you battle back against the disease in a natural way. Can you treat colon cancer naturally? Is there an alternative to chemotherapy or radiation? Today, we will take a look at the different methods of how to beat colon cancer naturally.

But First, What is Colon Cancer?

As you may or may not know, the colon — also known as the large intestine — is part of your digestive system. Colon cancer These mutations result in the abnormal growth of cells within the colon.

Colon cancer can affect people of all ages, though it’s more common in adults over 50. Colon cancer is also known as colorectal or rectal cancer, which refers to cancers that start in the rectum and can then spread to the large intestine. Colon cancer is often characterized by small, benign clumps that form in the colon. Colon Polyps form from abnormal tissue growths that become cancerous.

What Are the Stages of Colon Cancer?

Like other types of cancer, colon cancer is diagnosed in stages, and comprehensive treatment is often dependent on what point the illness is diagnosed.

Colon Cancer | Stage 0

When discussing colon cancer stages, some patients are surprised to hear about Stage 0. This stage is called cancer in situ and refers to polyps of cancer cells only found in the colon or rectum’s inner lining (or mucosa). These malignant cells in colon polyps can be removed during a polypectomy, part of a colonoscopy.

Colon Cancer | Stage I

Stage I of colon cancer is cancer that has grown out of the inner lining and into the layers of muscle on the colon or rectum. However, it hasn’t spread to other tissues or lymph nodes yet.

Colon Cancer | Stage II

Stage II happens when the cancer has spread past the colon wall but not into the lymph nodes. This stage is separated into three different locations.

Stage IIA 

In this stage, the cancer has spread through the walls but not to the lymph nodes.

Stage IIB

Stage IIB means the cancer has spread through the visceral peritoneum, the layers of muscle lining the abdomen. It hasn’t spread anywhere else or to the lymph nodes.

Stage IIC

In this stage, the tumor has grown through the wall and spread to nearby structures. It has not spread anywhere else or to the lymph nodes.

Colon Cancer | Stage III

When colon cancer has spread beyond the colon’s lining and to the lymph nodes, it is classified as stage III. Although the cancer affects the lymph nodes at this stage, it hasn’t spread to other organs within the body. Like stage II before it, this stage is separated into three different categories.

Stage IIIA

Here, the cancer has grown through the muscle layers of the intestine and has spread to 1-3 lymph nodes (or to a nodule of tumor in the tissues surrounding the colon or rectum that don’t seem like lymph nodes) but has not spread elsewhere.

Stage IIIB

In Stage IIIB, the cancer has either grown through the wall or to surrounding organs and to 1-3 lymph nodes (or to a nodule of tumor in the tissues surrounding the colon or rectum that don’t seem as though they’re lymph nodes) but has not spread to other areas of the body.

Stage IIIC

The cancer has spread to four or more lymph nodes in this stage. It hasn’t spread to other distant areas of the body.

Colon Cancer | Stage IV

When colon cancer reaches stage IV, it has moved through the blood and lymph nodes and spread to other organs in the body. This stage can be broken down into three different categories as well.

Stage IVA

Colon cancer has spread to one single distant part of the body (like the lungs or liver).

Stage IVB

Colon cancer has spread to more than one part of the body.

Stage IVC

Colon or rectal cancer has spread to the peritoneum (the membrane forming the lining of the abdominal cavity) and may also have spread to other sites or organs.

Based on the stage and areas affected, colon cancer can be treatable for patients.

1. Build a Healthier Diet

Most people know they should eat healthier to improve their lives. However, many do not realize that eating healthier could aid colon cancer treatment. We all ought to consume certain foods and beverages, and there are others we must avoid. For example, it is advisable to eat the following cancer-fighting food, which are rich in omega-3 fatty acids:

  • Salmon
  • Halibut
  • Whole grains
  • Leafy green vegetables

These are the kind of things that can bolster your immune system and make it easier for that system to fight back against the issues that are often associated with colon cancer. 

While looking at the things you should be eating, it is also ideal for making sure you avoid consuming other foods and beverages that could hinder your progress. Many of the foods and beverages that fall into this category are the usual suspects. For example, you should avoid: 

  • High-fat or fried foods
  • Red meats
  • Alcohol

At the very least, it is recommended that you moderate the amount of these foods and beverages that you consume. It is a challenge for most to cut these things out completely, but even the moderation of intake of these substances can prove highly beneficial to your body and its chances of fighting off illness and disease.

2. Explore Botanical Treatments

Many cancer specialists and others in the healthcare profession are buzzing with excitement over new studies that show that botanical treatments may be useful in conjunction with other treatments to help fight colon cancer. 

The natural botanical known as Andrographis paniculata is what some of the latest studies have zeroed in on. Cancer research shows that Andrographis paniculata may be useful in helping combat colon cancer that has been resistant to chemotherapy. 

The study was led by Ajay Goel, Ph.D., M.S., and published in a peer-reviewed journal. Thus, it has significant backing from real professionals. Many of those professionals are now abuzz with excitement over the potential breakthroughs that this natural substance may have to offer. This news couldn’t come at a better time for colon cancer patients with cancers that are resistant to chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and other treatments. 

When the study was performed, the goal was to find a natural substance that could not only aid in the treatment of colon cancer but also one that would be nontoxic if exposed to chemotherapy. The researchers knew that most people with colon cancer would likely have received chemotherapy at some point during their diagnosis or would be receiving chemotherapy at some point in the future. Thus, they needed to find something that would not have harmful interactions with chemotherapy when it was exposed to it. Fortunately, it appears that Andrographis paniculata fits that bill. 

How Does Andrographis Paniculata Work? 

This botanical is primarily found in South Asia, but it can also be found in the United States. It is already known for its anti-inflammatory properties as well as for being antibacterial and antiviral. Lately, it has received even more attention for its potential ability to battle colon cancer cells. 

Dr. Goel stated that it wasn’t shocking to researchers that Andrographis killed cancer cells. There was already ample evidence that it could do this even before his study took hold. What was more interesting was the ability of Andrographis to kill so-called cancer “supercells.” These colon cancer cells have proven to be resistant to chemotherapy and other common cancer treatments. 

Researchers worked on animal specimens first to ensure their tests would work as expected. Once they received positive results on that front, they moved to a 3D-organoid model grown from human colorectal tumor tissue that was taken from an actual cancer patient. Once again, the test proved that the use of Andrographis improved the use of chemotherapy by itself. It seems that Andrographis, in combination with chemotherapy and other recommended treatments, maybe the answer that researchers have been looking for. 

3. Drink Green Tea Regularly

Studies have looked at the impact of green tea consumption on colon cancer in both men and women. Interestingly, this is a situation in which the studies have produced some conflicting data. In one study, the data show that women who drink 5 or more cups of green tea daily see some benefits in colon cancer prevention and development. However, the same effect was not found in men. Additional studies have also suggested that tea consumption in general (including non-green tea) is useful in colon cancer prevention in women. Once again, the same research has not shown beneficial impacts for men and their means to prevent colon cancer. 

It is not clear why green tea would have benefits for women and not for men, but it seems to be the case based on the available research. Therefore, women are encouraged to at least consider starting a routine of drinking green tea. It is nearly universally available these days, and the beverage tastes great. If it can also provide the upside of a reduction in colon cancer risk, then that adds to the benefits that one can enjoy. 

4. Try Acupuncture and Massage as Complementary Treatments

You can’t massage your colon cancer away, but you can use acupuncture and/or massage as a complementary treatment to chemotherapy and radiation therapy. Massage and acupuncture are great at reducing the amount of pain and discomfort that you may feel as a result of the colon cancer therapy that you are going through. You can ease the burden of your symptoms and start to make tremendous strides toward a healthier lifestyle if you allow yourself to receive these therapies. 

Many people who are not suffering from cancer use massage and acupuncture as a way of helping alleviate everyday pain and stress. It can be extremely useful in managing your symptoms and helping you get the help that you need to improve your condition. 

Remember, your body is fighting a battle when it comes to defeating colon cancer, and that means that you need to do everything that you can to support it. Traditional treatments are perfectly acceptable and encouraged, but you might want to back them up with some complementary or alternative therapies as well. Doing so may bolster your chances of seeing your health improve. When it comes to dealing with something as challenging as metastatic colorectal cancer, it is best to seek out every avenue and resource that you can. You have a long fight ahead of you, and it is best to ensure that your arsenal is full of weapons to fight back against colon and rectal cancer.
