More maths – CA 125
When an ovarian cancer is diagnosed in a woman that does not know anything about the GNM, this can be experienced as a significant DHS (shock).
As I already mentioned in the previous blog, one of the first things anyone experience’s is an attack against the body, which in this case almost immediately is experienced in the brain relay that controls the cellular structure of the abdominal cavity.
The biological reaction to any attack is to build a kind of armour by multiplying specific cells that are controlled by this part of the brain. These cells are mesodermal (middle embryonic germ layer) in structure and can either “cake” around specific organs or form a mass known as serous tumors which are also attached to various organs in the abdominal cavity, or may just be seen in the fluid that builds when the biological conflict is resolved.
In the majority of cases, this conflict active phase goes unnoticed and is usually diagnosed when the patient develops fluid in the cavity known as “Ascites”. This fluid is essentially there to protect the organs within the abdomen, however if it becomes extraordinary it can be life threatening.
The amazing thing is that this fluid will only develop in the cavity when the patient comes to terms with the attack and begins to feel safe.
In most cases, the oncologist will encourage the patient to have it removed. This put’s the patient into a vicious cycle because in most cases it keeps recurring. If it is removed too often, the patient becomes very weak because the fluid is filled with vital elements such as albumen, a kind of protein and that takes considerable energy and resource to replace.
Another problem a ovarian cancer patient faces, is the concept of an elevated tumor marker count known as CA 125 which is used by conventional medicine as an indicator of a metastatic process.
If you research the “reliability of CA 125 in determining a cancer diagnosis” you will find that there are two different schools of thought. One is that it does NOT coincide with or confirm an ovarian cancer diagnosis. The other says it is “highly suspicious” of such a cancer diagnosis and can save lives.
I have to ask the question here as to why most ovarian cancer patients only have a 5 year life expectancy after their diagnosis if this will save lives.
What most people do not know is that an elevated CA 125 is indicative of MANY inflammatory conditions! If something abnormal is found on the ovaries, then they are satisfied they have their explanation of metastasis and why the CA 125 was elevated. Meanwhile the patient has a massive DHS!

Unfortunately, the CA 125 for ovarian cancer blood test is only accurate in detecting about fifty percent of stage I ovarian cancer cases. The use of this test results in many false positive and false negative results.
False positives occur when the CA 125 level is elevated, but the patient does not have ovarian cancer.
False negatives occur when the CA 125 level is not elevated, and the patient does have ovarian cancer.
The consequences of a false positive test can be very serious. Patients may undergo invasive testing or preventive abdominal surgery based on this false test result.
The effects of a false negative test can be devastating. Because cancer is not accurately diagnosed, the cancer is given time to become more severe. This reduces the patient’s chances of successful treatment once the cancer is accurately identified (National Cancer Institute).
The false positive test result can be caused by a number of health issues including reproductive conditions such as endometriosis and benign reproductive tumors. Inflammation in the pelvic cavity can also cause elevated levels of this cancer antigen (Johns Hopkins University – See more at: http://www.healthguideinfo.com/ovarian-cancer/p20998/#sthash.knXeDli2.dpuf
There are countless ovarian cancer patients that have never had an elevated CA 125 that did in fact experience a so called metastatic process. If CA 125 was a reliable indicator why was it not elevated? There are also women with an elevated CA 125 that have never had an ovarian cancer.
What is the purpose then to use this particular “tumor marker” if it does not absolutely confirm the existence of a “metastatic” ovarian cancer?
Your guess is as good as mine.
