Colon Cancer and Metastatic Colon Cancer
Colon cancer is one of the most common types of malignancy we treat at Advanced Alternatives Cancer Centers. Very few of our patients are in an early stage by the time they come to us. Very often, they are in the advanced stages of the disease and have exhausted all the normal, conventional methods of treatment. The majority of the colon cancer testimonials on our website involve the more advanced stages. When our patients have dramatic responses to our natural therapies, their stories are very exciting and show that hope is possible. In our experience, colon cancer, including metastatic colon cancer, is worthy of our best efforts in bringing the entire armamentarium of alternative and natural therapies into action. We use a wide variety of therapies for colon cancer, including high-dose intravenous infusions of natural substances, homeopathic injections, hyperthermia, immune augmentation, oral supplements, dietary measures, and juicing.
Lung Cancer and Metastatic Lung Cancer
Lung cancer and metastatic lung cancer are very common in our industrialized society. Exposure to cigarette smoke, dust, radon gas, asbestos, and various types of airborne pollutants is thought to be causative agents. Various types of lung cancer, such as small cell lung cancer, non-small cell lung cancer, mesothelioma, squamous cell cancer, and bronchoalveolar cancer, often have specific holistic treatment regimens thought most appropriate for their treatment. We utilize a wide variety of natural therapy modalities from all around the world in the treatment of each unique case of lung cancer.
Prostate Cancer and Metastatic Prostate Cancer
Some scientists have estimated that if men lived long enough, nearly all would eventually develop prostate cancer. The prostate gland of men living in industrialized societies certainly has a tendency to develop this malignancy. In the field of natural medicine, there are many theories as to why this is true, including the buildup of toxins, vascular congestion, hormonal over-stimulation, and the effects of ionizing radiation. We have treated a large number of prostate cancer patients, many of whom had advanced metastatic prostate cancer with metastases to the bones, regional lymph nodes, or other organs. In our view, a positive outcome has a likelihood of occurring if the patient is able to devote time and attention to their treatment, and if their body and the genes of their cancer cells are inherently capable of responding to the holistic treatments we administer. We utilize a wide variety of natural treatments for prostate cancer and metastatic prostate cancer in an attempt to bring all of the most promising non-toxic therapies to bear against each case of malignancy.
Breast Cancer and Metastatic Breast Cancer
Malignancies originating in the mammary tissues can arise from many causes. Some of these causes are known to science, such as genetic predisposition (oncogenes including BRCA1 and 2, HER2neu aberrations among others), radiation exposure, accumulation of toxins, poor diet, lack of pregnancy and breastfeeding as a young adult, and other lifestyle factors, and exposure to carcinogenic chemicals and hormonal imbalances. We have treated many types of breast cancer, including severe cases of end-stage metastatic breast cancer, and have specific natural treatment modalities for each type. Additionally, the holistic care of breast cancer demands that we realize that each woman is a unique individual. Our treatment regimens are therefore designed for each woman’s unique circumstances and case.
These malignancies of the blood system (hematopoietic cancers) are quite unique compared to solid tumors (such as lung, colon, etc.) because they involve the immune system. As a matter of fact, some might say that, essentially, they ARE cancers of the immune system. This fact brings into question the commonly-used concept in alternative medicine of always stimulating the immune system as a treatment for all forms of cancer. We disagree with this concept when it comes to leukemias and lymphomas. Our experience teaches us that it is important not to overstimulate the immune system in these cases. Our methods of natural care for leukemia and lymphomas are unique for each person, but largely consist of detoxification, immune health but not overstimulation, and seeking to induce natural genetic healing mechanisms within the cancer cells and the bone marrow.
Lymph Node Cancers
Many types of cancer may be found within the lymph nodes. Some malignancies metastasize to the lymph nodes as part of their spread throughout the body. We have seen many types of primary cancers which have spread to the nodes. In our clinics, it is not uncommon for us to encounter tumors from other regions, such as breast, colon lung etc. which metastasize to the lymph nodes. Commonly, the inguinal lymph nodes (in the leg) and the upper body nodes (cervical nodes, supraclavicular nodes, and neck nodes) are involved in a malignant spread when we are first presented with a new case. There are many techniques in alternative medicine to improve lymph node health. We employ many lymph health techniques and special methods of treatment for cancer that is present within lymph nodes.
Brain Cancer and Malignancies of Nerve Tissue
Glioblastoma multiforme, astrocytoma, and neuroblastoma are just a few of the many types of malignancies that can arise in the brain and nerve tissues. The work of Dr. Stanislas Bryzynski and others indicates that many forms of natural polyphenols may be of particular importance in the natural treatment of these tumors. Certainly, many forms of natural polyphenols are available in alternative medicine, and we often focus our attention particularly on them in the treatment of astrocytoma, glioblastoma multiforme, and other cancers of the brain and nervous tissues. The detection and elimination of toxins, including metallic toxins, is another focus, as is immune system stimulation and R-A Therapy.
The pancreas is a gland located deep in the mid-upper abdomen. It is essential to life, producing insulin and pancreatic enzymes. One of the most famous premises in alternative medicine is the use of natural pancreatic enzymes in the care of many types of cancer, including pancreatic cancer. Wobenzymes were the most famous pancreatic enzyme formulation, although today we have many other fine products from which to choose.
Hepatocellular carcinoma may be produced in response to the presence of viral infections within the liver, such as hepatitis A, hepatitis B, hepatitis C, non-A non-B hepatitis, and other viruses. The liver is also the most important detoxifier for the body, and therefore, detecting and eliminating toxic substances is an important concept in the homeopathic care of liver disease.
Metastatic Cancer to the Liver
Many types of cancer metastasize to the liver. Breast cancer, colon cancer, gallbladder cancer, small bowel cancer, rectal cancer, lung cancer, prostate cancer, and many others have been known to metastasize to the liver. Special techniques to stimulate healing within the liver have been developed in homeopathic medicine to focus especially on this organ, which is essential to life.
Tumors of the gallbladder and biliary cancer occur within the glands that store and duct bile. Bile is produced in the liver. The gallbladder stores bile, and releases bile into the bile ducts upon being stimulated to do so by various factors, such as the presence of fat in the diet. We have treated various forms of gallbladder cancer and tumors of the bile duct system, including Klatskins Tumor.
Bone Cancer, Sarcoma, Liposarcoma
There are many different connective tissue cancers that can develop. In addition to malignancies arising within the bone and connective tissues, cancer from other organs may metastasize to the bone. Please see our testimonials sections for many types of cases within this realm.
Kidney Cancer, Bladder Cancer, Ureteral Cancer
Nephroma and other primary malignancies of the urinary system can involve the kidneys, which produce urine, the ureters, which are tubes connecting the kidneys to the bladder, and the bladder, which stores urine. Sometimes, prostate cancer spreads upward into the bladder.
Malignant Melanoma and Metastatic Malignant Melanoma
Melanoma cancers normally arise from darky-pigmented lesions of the skin. “Melanocytes” are skin cells that tend to pigment, or color, our skin. As we are exposed to sunlight, the melanocytes are stimulated to produce pigments to darken our skin for protection from the sun. In certain instances, these skin cells mutate and become cancerous. Of the three most common types of skin cancer (basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and melanoma), melanoma is the most dangerous. It has a tendency to invade deep tissues and metastasize to distant organs and tissues. Often, these metastases invade organs critical to life, such as the brain or liver.
Ovarian Cancer and Metastatic Ovarian Cancer
Cancer that arises from the female ovaries can be difficult for the primary care doctor to initially detect. Because of this, women are often first diagnosed with this malignancy after it has spread into surrounding tissues or organs, or even spread far beyond the original site. Seeds or transplants of malignant metastases of ovarian cancer often occur throughout the pelvic cavity or abdomen. This can lead to fluid retention within the abdomen (ascites), and swelling in the legs.
