Easy Cancer Screening Cancer Monitoring Test

November 25, 2013

Thymidine kinase (TK-1) is an enzyme that is excreted by cells that undergo rapid division and DNA repair. Measuring the levels of one’s thymidine kinase yearly is an excellent way to detect the presence of rapidly dividing (cancer cells) or the presence of factors that tip off that your body is undergoing issues with DNA repair that result from hidden chronic infection or auto-immune attack. These factors include inflammation from allergies, environmental sensitivities, auto-immune flares, and hidden bacterial, viral, spirokette, and fungal infections.

Why is TK-1 a good blood marker? This enzyme is found in most of our living cells and it is directly linked with the process of DNA duplication and repair. If our cells become damaged from infection or auto-immune attack, our normal tissues will undergo DNA duplication and repair. Therefore, an elevation of TK-1 can also indicate and measure the degree of inflammation your body is experiencing aside from cancer cell replication.

The TK-1 test itself does not distinguish between cancer and normal cell DNA replication. Therefore, working with a knowledgeable health care provider to discern the state of inflammation and hidden infection your body is experiencing will help to rule out the presence of hidden inflammation as well and undiagnosed cancer.

For individuals suffering from chronic inflammatory conditions such as Lyme disease, Rheumatoid arthritis, Chron’s disease, irritable bowel, food allergies, food and environmental sensitivities, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis and autism to name a few, the TK-1 blood test can be an additional marker to monitor the progress of your treatment protocols in reducing inflammation and therefore the need for DNA repair.

Who should have the TK-1 test done? Everyone, because it is an excellent biomarker. The test should be repeated annually in individuals with low risk for cancer, and more frequently for those at higher risk or those undergoing cancer treatment or the treatment of chronic infection or auto-immune conditions.

Where can I get tested? You can order a test online at https://www.immunematrix.com/store/product.php?productid=16345&cat=0&page=1

and the results will be sent to you electronically and include a 10 minute medical consult with the medical director at Immune Matrix, Anna Manayan.

Your initial test establishes a baseline. It is recommended that if you are experiencing inflammation or have a known auto-immune condition, or are or have recently undergone cancer treatment, you have three TK-1 tests run in a row, one per month for three months to establish a firm baseline.

If you are in remission, annual testing of TK-1 will help in early detection of recurrence of cancer.

If you are actively being treated for Lyme disease or any other type of chronic infection, the TK-1 test will help as a monitor of the level of improvement of your cellular repair as TK-1 levels drop with the reduction of DNA damage and improvement of cellular repair.

Knowledge empowers, therefore, find out your TK-1 levels now.
