Today, I want to cover the early warning signs of colon cancer that you should pay attention to. These indicators do not necessarily mean you have colon cancer, but they are important clues that could help in the early detection of this disease.

Risk factors associated with colon cancer:
• Smoking
• Drinking
• Unhealthy diet
• Obesity
• H. pylori infection

Red meat has also been associated with colon cancer. However, recent studies have found no direct correlation between red meat and cancer and that the quality of meat consumed, such as grass-fed versus grain-fed, can make a difference.

Genetics play a role in colon cancer but only account for about five percent of cases. Lifestyle factors such as diet and exercise can have a much greater impact on gene expression through epigenetics.

Six early indicators of colon cancer:
• Blood in the stool
• Anemia without a known cause
• Thin stools
• Worsening constipation
• Abdominal pain
• Sudden weight loss or loss of appetite

If you experience any of these symptoms, it's important to consult with your doctor for further testing and evaluation.

But what can you do to potentially avoid colon cancer? Here are a few tips:
• Limit the use of antibiotics, but if you must take them, also take a good probiotic.
• Try intermittent fasting or prolonged fasting to give your colon a break and allow it to heal.
• Incorporate cruciferous vegetables such as kale, broccoli, and cabbage into your diet for their anti-inflammatory and probiotic properties.
• Stay physically active to strengthen your mitochondria and decrease cancer risk.
• Add spices such as garlic, thyme, and sage to your meals for their anti-cancer properties.
• Avoid foods that cause inflammation in the gut, such as gluten, grains, seed oils, and junk food.

    I am scheduled for a colonoscopy this coming Wednesday as a form of prevention.
    The age is getting lower and lower for colon cancer. Especially when a friend of mine was diagnosed at 39.

    Excellent information, Dr Berg. Thanks for your continuous educational content 🙏🏻

    Thank You Five years ago I went to the Gastroenterologist and after he did a colonoscopy, at my pleading, they found something. He kept insisting that it wasn’t cancer, even though the pathologist called and said that there was something wrong. I found another doctor who said I probably had cancer and did colon surgery. He had to remove 12 inches of my colon because of the cancer. What I learned was that You must be your own advocate! Find a doctor like Dr. Berg who will listen to you because your life depends on it.

    • @theresahernandez6923 says:

      At the time I was 60. I had been seeing that gastroenterologist for awhile and he just dismissing my complaints. When the pathologist called his office I knew something was wrong but he didn’t. He no longer works at that practice.

    I had previously had haemorrhoids and bled so a few years later, when I started bleeding again, I almost missed going to the doctor and almost died of bowel cancer.
    Don’t delay going to the doctors :-O

    Thank you Dr. Berg,
    I had a blockage, a bowl reconnection, and 25 lymph nodes removed.
    I was told to see an oncologist. I followed the Joe Tippens protocol, and rotate my meds ivermectin fenbendazole, and menbendazole. Also utilize Chinese medicine. Diet is very important, all the new pesticides, preventative, are getting worse. I’m going on 3 years very gradually to Joe T.

    • @sunshine9122 says:

      That’s great to hear! So glad to see a success story. It’s difficult to find information on the protocol. Where can I read/research? Thanks!

    My mom died from colon cancer in 1991 at age 51. I’ve had to have colonoscopies since age 30. Today I turned 53. My mom had, had a hysterectomy and was never put on HRT. Lack of estrogen can make you more susceptible to colon cancer and lots of other diseases. The study about HRT WAS FLAWED yet it scared so many women out of using it.

    My brother, 68, was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer last year. He’s responding well to treatment at U of Penn. I’m 56 and have gotten regular colonoscopies and endoscopies since age 22. Although my doctor recommends the procedure every 5 years, I insisted on getting them every 3 years due to family history of stomach cancer and my own polyps. You MUST advocate for your health despite what some doctors recommend!!!
