Reducing Energy Intake of Cancer Cells

Jane learned that cancer uses glucose, glutamine and other amino acids, and fatty acids to create ATP, the energy it used to invade us.

Her strategies focused on minimizing cancer's ability to access and/or metabolize these energy sources.

Reducing Cancer's Nutrient Intake via Blood (Angiogenesis) and Lymph (fluid surrounding cells) (Macropinocytosis)

Disrupting Energy Production: Doxycyclene to damage energy producing mitochondria in cancer stem cells

Reducing Cancer's Ability to Convert Glucose to Energy

Reduce Blood Sugar and/or Insulin (which ushers Glucose into Cells): low Glycemic Index Diet, Metformin, Berberine, Exercise, Chromium Picolinate, and Gymnema Sylvestre

Inhibit the Glucose Transport Receptor, so less glucose enters the cancer cell: Quercetin and Lipophilic Statins (Lorvastatin/Atorvastatin)

Limit Glycolosis (Energy Produced from Breaking the Glucose Ring in Two): Intravenous Vitamin C, Daily Eating Windows (Intermittant Fasting), 2 Deoxy-d-Glucose

Minimize ATP Production in the Cancer Cell's Electron ransport Chain (Oxidative Phosphorylation): Metformin, Berberine, Doxyclycline, Niclosamide
