Highlights

Nutrition is the single most effective tool which cancer patients can control for managing cancers like Ameloblastoma or Juvenile Myelomonocytic Leukemia – hence it is important to identify those Foods and Supplements which are scientifically recommended for you. A frequently asked question is if foods like Hyssop are beneficial for cancer and along with which treatments? There is a mis-conception that all plant-based foods are good for all cancers and all of them are equal in terms of their benefits or their lack of. The reality is that some plant-based foods will be better than others for a specific type of cancer, treatments and other conditions. So Hyssop benefits will vary and the answer is contextual.

For example, grapefruit with certain medications is not recommended. Also spinach with some blood thinning medications can cause adverse interactions and hence intake should be reduced. For cancer, nutrition which includes food and supplements are important decisions which need to be made.

So are there types of cancer where Hyssop has more benefits? Yes! Hyssop is beneficial for Juvenile Myelomonocytic Leukemia patients taking Trametinib treatment. But has adverse interactions for Ameloblastoma patients on Radiation treatment.

For Juvenile Myelomonocytic Leukemia along with Trametinib – biochemical pathways like MYC Signaling, PI3K-AKT-MTOR Signaling (PI3K-AKT Signaling), MAPK Signaling (ERK Signaling), RAS-RAF Signaling (RAS Signaling) and JAK-STAT Signaling are potential drivers of the disease. Hyssop has active ingredients which can manipulate these biochemical pathways to reduce the disease drivers and hence are scientifically beneficial. But for Ameloblastoma along with Radiation – biochemical pathways like Epithelial to Mesenchymal Transition, Cell Cycle (Proliferation), RAS-RAF Signaling (RAS Signaling), MYC Signaling and PI3K-AKT-MTOR Signaling (PI3K-AKT Signaling) are potential drivers of the disease. Hyssop has active ingredients which can increase disease drivers like Epithelial to Mesenchymal Transition, Cell Cycle (Proliferation), RAS-RAF Signaling (RAS Signaling), MYC Signaling and PI3K-AKT-MTOR Signaling (PI3K-AKT Signaling) and hence intake should be reduced.

Similarly, eating Hyssop can have scientific benefits for healthy individuals who have a gene mutation in NRAS which suggests potential risk of cancer. This is because of biochemical pathways MYC Signaling, MAPK Signaling (ERK Signaling) and RAS-RAF Signaling (RAS Signaling). But reduce intake of Hyssop when at genetic risk of cancer due to mutation of gene ATM due to its manipulation of biochemical pathways Estrogen Signaling, DNA Repair (Homology Directed Repair), Stem Cell Signaling, DNA Repair (ATM Signaling) and Growth Factor Signaling (ERBB2 Signaling) causing cancer drivers to increase.

The takeaway being – for Ameloblastoma, Juvenile Myelomonocytic Leukemia and other cancers individual conditions can influence if foods like Hyssop are recommended or not. As conditions like ongoing treatments, supplements, habits and other conditions change; the nutrition plan must be re-designed and personalized. Whether Ameloblastoma or Juvenile Myelomonocytic Leukemia or other cancer types -, current treatments and supplements, age, gender, weight, height, lifestyle and genetic conditions are also key decision factors for creating a personalized nutrition plan.



Why is the choice of foods important for cancer?

Foods like Hyssop typically contain more than one active ingredient at varying concentrations. Each of these active ingredients like Methyleugenol has a unique molecular biological mechanism of action. Cancer like most diseases is driven by specific biochemical pathways and molecular interventions of the pathway can be beneficial or create adverse interactions. Hence for Ameloblastoma, Juvenile Myelomonocytic Leukemia and other cancers there is a need to personalize which foods and supplements to take and regularly evaluate if foods like Hyssop are recommended or not.

Hyssop for Juvenile Myelomonocytic Leukemia taking Trametinib Hyssop for Ameloblastoma with Radiation treatment

So some of the example questions one may have related to Hyssop can be: Is Hyssop beneficial for me? Should I eat it when at genetic cancer risk due to mutation of gene ATM? Should I eat Hyssop when a mutation of a gene NRAS is identified? Should I eat Hyssop when diagnosed with Ameloblastoma? Should I eat Hyssop when diagnosed with Juvenile Myelomonocytic Leukemia? Should I eat Hyssop when on Radiation treatment? Should I continue eating Hyssop if my treatment changes from Radiation to Trametinib? Are the implications of taking Hyssop in Juvenile Myelomonocytic Leukemia the same as Ameloblastoma? And so on.

Hyssop and cancer

Hyssop (Hyssopus officinalis) is a herb from the mint family native to Southern Europe, the Middle East, and the region surrounding the Caspian Sea. It may help reduce blood sugar levels (Hiroyuki Miyazaki et al,  J Nutr Sci Vitaminol (Tokyo)., 2003) It has also been widely used in traditional herbal medicine. Following are some of the purported uses of Hyssop

  • Used as antiseptic.
  • Used as a cough reliever during respiratory tract infections.
  • Used as an expectorant.

Hyssop contains many active ingredients like Methyleugenol, Eucalyptol, Diosmin, Alpha-terpinyl Acetate, Caffeic Acid and many other Bioactives at different concentrations. The molecular pathways which are regulated by Hyssop include Epithelial to Mesenchymal Transition, MYC Signaling, PI3K-AKT-MTOR Signaling (PI3K-AKT Signaling), Estrogen Signaling, MAPK Signaling (ERK Signaling) and many others. These cellular pathways directly or indirectly influence cancer molecular endpoints like growth, spread and death. Because of this biological relationship – for cancer, choosing foods like Hyssop and supplements is an important decision to be made. And not necessarily the same food choices are scientifically best for all individuals.

Include Hyssop in my nutrition?

The answer to the question “Which Foods to Eat” and “Which Foods to Reduce Intake of” is dependent on multiple factors. Just like the same treatment does not work for every cancer patient, based on individual context the Hyssop may have scientific benefits or have adverse interactions. Along with which cancer – the ongoing treatments, supplements, lifestyle habits, height, weight, allergies and food preferences are all factors influencing answers to the question.

1. Any benefits of Hyssop for Ameloblastoma with Radiation treatment?

Ameloblastoma is known to have mutations in gene like BRAF, SMO and PIK3CA and others which together cause biochemical pathway changes in Epithelial to Mesenchymal Transition, Cell Cycle (Proliferation), RAS-RAF Signaling (RAS Signaling), MYC Signaling and PI3K-AKT-MTOR Signaling (PI3K-AKT Signaling). A cancer treatment like Radiation has molecular action on a unique set of biochemical pathways . The treatment intent is to have a good overlap with the cancer driving pathways and reduce the disease drivers. In such conditions foods which can scientifically cancel out the treatment effect by reducing the overlap between the cancer driving pathways and treatment are candidates for reducing intake of or completely avoid. For example – in the case of Ameloblastoma and treatment Radiation – Hyssop is not recommended. Hyssop impacts pathways or processes like Epithelial to Mesenchymal Transition which can negate the effects of the treatment.

2. Any benefits of Hyssop for Juvenile Myelomonocytic Leukemia with Trametinib treatment?

Juvenile Myelomonocytic Leukemia is defined and driven by specific genetic mutations like PTPN11, NRAS and NF1 leading to biochemical pathway changes in MYC Signaling, PI3K-AKT-MTOR Signaling (PI3K-AKT Signaling), MAPK Signaling (ERK Signaling), RAS-RAF Signaling (RAS Signaling) and JAK-STAT Signaling. Also treatments like Trametinib have molecular action on a unique set of biochemical pathways. Hyssop should be considered for Juvenile Myelomonocytic Leukemia while on Trametinib treatment. Hyssop impacts pathways or processes like MYC Signaling and PI3K-AKT-MTOR Signaling (PI3K-AKT Signaling) which can either reduce drivers of Juvenile Myelomonocytic Leukemia and/or improve Trametinib treatment effect.

No two cancers are the same. Go beyond the common nutrition guidelines for everyone and make personalized decisions about food and supplements with confidence.

3. Any benefits of Hyssop for gene ATM associated cancer genetic risk?

Many companies offer gene panel tests for evaluating genetic risk to different cancers. These panels cover genes like ATM and many others associated with high prevalence cancers of breast, ovary, uterus, prostate and gastrointestinal system and others. The intent of the genetic testing of ATM is for diagnosis and/or to find out any potential risk factors for cancer. ATM mutation causes biochemical pathways or processes like Estrogen Signaling, DNA Repair (Homology Directed Repair), Stem Cell Signaling, DNA Repair (ATM Signaling) and Growth Factor Signaling (ERBB2 Signaling) to get impacted. Cancer molecular endpoints like apoptosis, proliferation and spread are impacted by pathways like Estrogen Signaling, DNA Repair (Homology Directed Repair), Stem Cell Signaling, DNA Repair (ATM Signaling) and Growth Factor Signaling (ERBB2 Signaling). Intake of foods like Hyssop should be reduced when there is a mutation of ATM for risk of Chronic myelomonocytic leukemia and Mantle Cell Lymphoma. Hyssop impacts pathways or processes like Estrogen Signaling and creates adverse effects with ATM mutation.

4. Any benefits of Hyssop for gene NRAS associated cancer genetic risk?

NRAS is also one of many genes available in panels for cancer risk testing. NRAS mutation causes biochemical pathways or processes like MYC Signaling, MAPK Signaling (ERK Signaling) and RAS-RAF Signaling (RAS Signaling) to get impacted. Cancer molecular endpoints like apoptosis, proliferation and spread are impacted by pathways like MYC Signaling, MAPK Signaling (ERK Signaling) and RAS-RAF Signaling (RAS Signaling). Intake of foods like Hyssop should be considered when Acute Lymphoid Leukemia and Multiple Myeloma risk is identified due to gene NRAS mutation. Hyssop impacts biochemical pathways or processes like MYC Signaling and MAPK Signaling (ERK Signaling) associated with genetic risk to NRAS mutation.
