“Gift of the gods” ZAPS Pancreatic Cancer

Dear Living Well Daily Reader,

Over 62,000 people will get some devastating news this year. They’ll be told they have pancreatic cancer.

A cancer diagnosis is always terrible, of course. But with pancreatic cancer, the stakes are even higher, because this deadly disease is the third leading cause of cancer-related deaths in America.

Nearly 50,000 Americans lose their battle with this killer every year. And in the U.S., its death rate continues to climb.

Mainstream medicine has reacted to this growing threat by dishing out more of the same—chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery.

You know what they say the definition of insanity is, right? It’s doing the same thing over and over again but expecting different results.

The conventional medicine approach is costly, comes with miserable side effects, and can cause deadly damage of its own. But even worse, it often fails.

It’s clearly time to change directions and look for a bit of extra help. And lucky for us, scientists have now done just that.

Their research has revealed a “gift from the gods” that could help destroy pancreatic cancer… and the results are nothing short of EXTRAORDINARY.

In Ancient Greek mythology, it was Zeus, father of all gods, who ruled the sky and sent us thunder and lightning. And the fact that a humble vine was given a name that hints at that same power is a testament to how potent this plant is.

It’s called thunder god vine. And it’s commonly grown in southeast China,

Researchers at the Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGen) found that this simple plant hides a huge secret. Thunder god vine can help patients with pancreatic cancer.

Thunder god vine is the common name for the plant called Tripterygium wilfordii. It’s been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) for thousands of years to treat inflammatory conditions like arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, and certain kidney problems.

The researchers focused on one of the key ingredients of the plant: triptolide. And they uncovered something EXCITING.

Triptolide attacks cancer cells by breaking up the stroma, a cocoon-like structure that surrounds tumors. The stroma shields and hides the diseased cells from your body’s immune system.

In other words, dismantle the stroma, and your body can swoop in and attack the cancer.

The scientists found that triptolide can also disrupt super-enhancers. Pancreatic cancer cells need these strings of DNA to maintain their genetic stability.

So, super-enhancers—like their name implies—enhance cancer cells. When you strip them away, the diseased cells essentially lose their stability and collapse in on themselves.

Not only that, cancer cells rely on super-enhancers for growth, survival, and replication. Once disrupted, the cells are unable to continue multiplying and building tumors.

This study was conducted in a lab. This means much more research must be done before we know what effects it will have in real-world situations.

But what we know so far is already very exciting. It provides hope for people with pancreatic cancer and reminds us that natural alternatives can often enhance (or in some cases even replace) many mainstream medicine “solutions.”

You can find thunder god vine anywhere supplements are sold, including online at Amazon.com. As always, make sure you speak with your doctor or an integrative medicine physician about starting a new supplement.

P.S. As with all cancers, prevention is key when it comes to pancreatic cancer. And scientists say THIS common problem could send your risk soaring. (Click for the fix.)
