Colon cancer (colorectal carcinoma)

Colon cancer is the world’s most common cancer and sadly the most common cause of cancer deaths in developed countries. It is the most typical in Central and Western Europe; as shown by the international statistics its incidence in these countries is more prevalent in men than in women.

Risk factors

Colon cancer affects people aged above 50, commonly men. The main risk factors include age, genetics (some types emerge in a family almost certainly), as well as chronic inflammatory diseases (ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease), and some types of polyps growing on the walls of intestines, that may develop into a tumor, so their timely removal is important. A significant and easily modifiable factor is lifestyle – obesity, smoking, alcohol consumption, food high in animal fat, red meat and meat products greatly contribute to the onset of colon cancer. If combined with a weak immune system, the risk of the disease doubles.

Signs and symptoms

At first, the signs and symptoms may be less visible; however, attention should be given to a long-term abdominal discomfort, diarrhoea or constipation, bloating, stomach pain or a poor bowel movement. Another warning sign is blood in stools which may lead to anaemia associated with general fatigue and weakness. But not all of these symptoms occur due to cancer.

Preventative measures

Screenings for occult (hidden) bleeding in people aged above 50 are preventative steps which may reveal colon cancer in time at its asymptomatic stage. A simple stool assessment is performed once in 2 years. In people with genetic predispositions, intestinal problems or other risk factors the screening is considered for diagnosis of a potential digestive disease. These people need to boost the immune system preventatively, because its weakness increases the risk of cancer.

Impact of the immune system on colon cancer

A strong immune system is able to distinguish unwanted cells and destroy them. Hence boosting immunity is almost necessary, and in terms of colon cancer it is absolutely necessary, because enhanced immune system increases the chances for recovery. A strong enough immunity thanks to natural food supplements suppresses potential side effects of the treatment and ensures mental well-being that is so important for combating the disease.

How does Penoxal help in oncological treatment?

A strong immune system can deal with cancer cells well and it destroys them; however, sometimes it needs help. PENOXAL stimulates the immune system and it helps to optimise its activity, which manifests effectively enough to fight cancer cells. The product may be taken during radiotherapy and chemotherapy as it helps to overcome some of its adverse effects. Moreover, it improves the function of digestive tract, liver, kidneys and other organs that are under a great stress during cancer treatments; in this way it enhances a healthy body functioning and an overall well-being. M.D. Anna GalambosPharm.Dr. Thomas Arndt and other doctors confirm in their statements about Penoxal that it is suitable food supplement to complement cancer treatments.
