An unhealthy gut microbiome helps worsen breast cancer

An unhealthy gut microbiome helps worsen breast cancer
University of Virginia researchers have shown that an unhealthy microbiome causes breast cancer and then the unhealthy microbiome increases mast cell infiltration into breast tumour tissue and this drives metastases.
We've told you before - all illness starts in the gut (Hippocrates). And that, with chronic illness, your gut microbiome gets ill first and, secondly, you can't get better until your microbiome gets better (Human Microbiome Project) This is exactly why, Chris Woollams rebuilds people's health when they have cancer, from the gut outwards. As he says frequently, when he builds a Personal Prescription for someone, he doesn't treat cancer; he treats people. They built a body conducive to cancer over a number of years - he builds them a body conducive to health!
Now, new research from Melanie Rutkowski, PhD, of the UVA School of Medicine and the UVA Cancer Center, shows that Chris is absolutely correct in his approach. 
Rutkowski's research shows that not only does an unhealthy gut lead to changes in a healthy breast but that it also goes on to help breast cancer spread to other parts of the body. You must fix your gut. In the USA, only 29% of women with metastatic breast cancer survive five years.
In studies with mice Rutkowski's team showed that an unhealthy and inflammatory microbiome systematically changes the mammary tissue in healthy mice.  If you don't correct the microbiome, "these tissue changes enhance the infiltration of mast cells which in the presence of a tumour, facilitate breast tumor metastasis,” said Dr Rutkowski, “Mast cells recruited into the tissue environment during dysbiosis restructure the tissue architecture in such a way that tumor cells metastasize to other organs.”
The team also found that the mast cells increased the amount of collagen in the mice’s breast tissue and this caused an earlier cancer spread.
Chris Woollams says, "I absolutely hate antibiotics for cancer patients they should be banned; you can kill bacteria with oregano oil, artemisinin and pau d'arco with no microbiome damage. Healing your gut involves four steps - heal the gut wall, kill the bad; add trillions of good; build a new gut lining. You can usually complete this in less than 20 weeks (2),, although you probably need some help to do it".
