Orexin/hypocretic receptor signalling and cancer.

Let's consider Orexin/hypocretin receptor signalling and how we may exploit this system for brain cancer management.


As we can see in the diagrams below, orexin neutrons regulate various activities such as wakefulness, feeding, reward and thermogenesis.



A ketogenic diet, normalisation of sleep/wake cycles, fasting, stimulation of thermogenic pathways and giving the brain fuels it thrives on could act as key strategies we can adopt to take advantage of the fact that orexin appears to have potential as a novel, highly-specific treatment for various localised and metastatic cancers. This is not quite as simple as it may sound as you can always have too much of a 'good' stressor or thing before it becomes 'bad'- eustress vs distress.

We know of course that fat is a very efficient source of energy for the brain and ketone bodies are neuroprotective, the body energy level influences orexin neuronal activity to coordinate arousal and energy homeostasis. Management of chronic stress is also key as inputs from the lymbic system are important to regulate activity of orexin neutrons to evoke emotional arousal or fear-related responses.

Also consider that the brain has an abundance of mitochondria and the matrix water in the presence of cancer either by cause or effect appears to be high deuterium. Normal cells are very good at adapting to changes in levels of deuterium (in terms of reduction) but abnormal cells are not.

From my research on the subject it seems clear and viable that you can achieve greater mental stability by a kind of filtration process to deplete deuterium by drinking deuterium depleted water, as has been shown in studies of depressive disorders. We also see several studies on how deuterium depleted water can shrink tumours by restoring fumarate hydratase activity. Fumarate hydratase acts as a tumour suppressor. Here is an example of how fumarate hydratase and deuterium depletion control oncogenesis, effectively helping to put the breaks on cancer proliferation: http://cancerres.aacrjournals.org/content/74/19_Supplement/1426.short

I have little doubt that Orexin signalling cascades will also be affected by this in a positive way for cancer patients. A lot of this is theory, but it is backed by some sound science. I still have a lot of questions but I think I may have a few interesting theories on this.

Here is a nice review of orexin's unprecedented potential as a highly-specific treatment for various localised and metastatic cancers: http://journals.sagepub.com/doi/full/10.1177/2050312117735774

  2. My mum had small cell terminal lung cancer. She lost her hair while going through chemo and it was devastated. She has recently finished her radiotherapy and she was losing her hair again :( mum wanted me to shave it off again as it's coming out in clumps.i know she was very upset and have told her to be confident it'll grow back but she's so upset, life became hell for me, because i just cant imagine my mum this way. i actually posted this online, and somebody replied me, that he knows once who can cure my mum, without spending much money and without taking anytime anymore, and there wont be any hair loss anymore. I said okay and i want to give it a try, the person that helped him (the person that i was referred to) is Dr Covenant, his email is covenantsolutiontemple@gmail.com, he gave me his email address and i contacted him and told him everything, he (Dr Covenant) said i should not worry everything'll be okay in space of 8 days, i actually gave him a try.
    It was not up to the 3rd day, i started noticing changes in my mum. Now my mum is healthy back and the cancer is gone. Am so grateful about this. I actually thought that my mum was going to die, but now she is still alive. Friends, if you have any problem such as cancer, or other illness like HIV/AIDS, GONORRHEA, or any other illness at all, and he is also specialized in getting ex back contact Dr Covenant on his email covenantsolutiontemple@gmail.com or add him on watsapp on +2349057353987 or call him directly on +2348146671563. you can also go through his website if interested http://covenantspelltemple.blogspot.com.
    MY BEST FRIEND IS STILL ALIVE, AM GRATEFUL COVENANT.
