Bile is one of the digestive juices that help in the emulsification and breakdown of dietary fats. It is secreted by the liver and is taken to the gallbladder for storage through many pipes called bile ducts. From the bile ducts, the bile is taken to the small intestine where it breaks down fat. Cholangiocarcinoma is a type of cancer that arises in the bile ducts which is quite rare and occurs mostly in people above the age of 50 years. They are a part of a family of tumours called adenocarcinomas.
Depending on the part of the cancer of bile ducts that a tumour grows, Cholangiocarcinoma can be divided into three types:
- Intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma- This type of cancer occurs in the area of the bile duct which is within the liver.
- Hilar cholangiocarcinoma- it occurs in the part of the bile duct which is just outside the liver.
- Distal cholangiocarcinoma- this occurs in the bile duct that is nearest to the small intestine.
Symptoms of Cholangiocarcinoma Are As Follows:
- Dark urine and pale white-colored stool
- A condition of yellowing of skin, nails, and eyes is called jaundice
- Excessive itching due to jaundice
- Loss of appetite
- Fatigue and weight loss
- Pain in the abdominal region that penetrates in the back as the cancer growth increases
The main cause behind cholangiocarcinoma is the random change or mutation which occurs in the DNA of the cells of a bile duct. Once the mutation occurs the cells lose control of the division of cells forming a tumour. The real reason why the mutation occurs is not known.
Having a history of chronic liver disease increases the risk of cholangiocarcinoma. A health condition called primary sclerosing cholangitis causing scarring and hardening of bile ducts also cause cholangiocarcinoma. Problems with the bile duct at birth like choledochal cyst can fall prey to this chronic disease in the future. Excess of smoking and liver fluke infection can be a high-risk factor for getting affected by cholangiocarcinoma.
Even after this type of cancer has been treated successfully, surgeries may have to be performed in order to open up the blocked bile ducts. The correct diagnosis of cholangiocarcinoma can be done by a few tests like liver function tests, tumour marker tests, and imaging tests like ERCP, CT scans, and MRI scans.
Curcumin is a potent anti-cancer agent due to its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Oncomin from Bagdara Farms helps in treating and preventing Cholangiocarcinoma.
Clinical Trial & Our Product
Since health care & medicine is an industry, formulations are controlled through intellectual property rights denying easy access to common people and maintaining the buoyancy for the interest holders.
Formula’s can be patented and that covers business interests that drive innovations these days.
So instead of conducting trials on the raw root, almost all companies promote clinically tested formulations of extracts to make it appear better then how the phytochemical was in its original state. Its like extracting an important organ from the body and then putting it on support system, expecting it to perform better in insolation then how it could perform when in it was in its natural form. The truth is, that the best way to consume a plant based medicine is in its raw form. Curcumin is one of the active ingredients in the root Curcuma Longa.
Since its more important to know what your food ate then what you ate, its important to know that the supplements you are using based on curcumin has curcumin from a gene modified variety of curcuma longa which suffers from an imbalance of every other mineral. You see a plant also behaves how a human body behaves when it is injected with steroids to gain muscle mass for body building purpose. The plants have higher levels of curcumin but all other secondary minerals found along curcumin in the plant get compromised as the plant can not feed all nutritions equally when it is designed to feed most of its nutrition towards developing higher levels of curcumin. It has severe side effects on the health of the plant and apparently on the people consuming such plants or extracts coming from these plants. However marketing and promotions have evolved to divert attention very wisely.
An extract of any herb can never be stored in its original state and hence needs base agents, preservatives which hardly leave it how it must be. We believe that access to medicine and healthcare is a basic right of every human and animal living on planet earth. Hence we do not first extract and then add preservatives or agents like pepperine to make the extract bio-available. This is the reason we never patent any of our products. We instead hand process the whole root we cultivate in our farms and share it with the people under different brand names for different health conditions based on the concentration of minerals present at testing. You can also buy the seed from us and cultivate it but it will certainly not be as potent as you get from us.
How potent is the active ingredient in the plant depends on the quality of seed, soil, water and environment. Our products work far better then most of the curcumin based supplements globally being used for Therapeutic benefits.
We do not intend to formulate or patent our products. So instead of choosing a supplement with an extract, choose wisely and go for the best and not the Cheapest.
All our products are cultivated, harvested, hand processed and distributed directly from our own farms to ensure that people who depend on our products for their acute and chronic problems get consistent supply of highest quality, ultra premium, medicinal grade, Non-GMO, Indigenous, Naturally enriched with curcumin, Wild Strand curcuma longa powder for therapeutic benefits. We cultivate this in the middle of a national park which happens to be the best breeding ground for Bengal tigers in India called Bandhavgarh.
