Alternative Cancer Treatments that Work

2016-01-25 14:54

Treatments for cancer have traditionally been surgery, radiation therapy, and chemotherapy. However in 1985, hyperthermia therapy, a natural non-invasive treatment which allows the generation of heat to a specific area to kill tumor cells was approved for clinical use. When combined with very low dose radiation, proponents of this non-traditional treatment claim a success rate of 85-92% remission. Hyperthermia is internationally known as the fourth treatment in cancer therapy and while relatively new to the U.S is well known and widely used in other countries like Japan, Germany, Switzerland, Denmark, France, Italy, and China.

Scientists have been searching for answers to the problem of cancer growth for decades by studying the mechanisms of cancer and looking for ways to induce cancerous cells to be reprogrammed to commit cellular death or apoptosis. While normal cells have a definitive life cycle, cancer cells to not abide by the same physiologic rules.

Instead, cancer cells proliferate and grow rapidly, invading healthy tissues and often traveling to secondary sites within the body (metastasis) via lymph or blood, the reason that with surgical re

Designer T-Cells Aid in Treatment of Leukemia

2015-11-07 09:45

The only thing worse than hearing the word cancer is in reference to a child. A mere 3 months after delivering a seemingly healthy baby girl that they named, Layla, Lisa and Ashleigh Richards got the worst imaginable news. They were told their infant daughter was suffering from acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), a type of cancer in which the bone marrow makes too many immature lymphocytes, a type of white blood cell (WBC) involved in moderating the immune system. ALL is the most common type of cancer in children and in aggressive forms has about a 1 in 4 survival rate.

There are two main types of lymphocytes: B cells and T cells. The B cells produce antibodies that are used to attack invading bacteria, viruses, and toxins.

You Have Heard That Processed Meats Cause Cancer But Do You Understand Why?

2015-10-27 07:59

I majored in chemistry in college before I decided to get my nursing degrees. So, I think about everything I eat. I also read labels. In general, though I eat only fresh products and stay away from the inner aisles of the grocery store and processed meat products. So, for me, the recent news from the World Health Organization that processed meat and even red meat cause cancer is old news, about 30 years old to be exact.

They say “you are what you eat” and well, I don’t exactly want to be a polska kielbasa sausage, do you?

New Viral Therapy Cancer Treatment Improves Survival Rates and Makes Everyone Smile

2015-10-17 11:11

A diagnosis of cancer can instill fear, anxiety and a sense of helplessness and hopelessness in those affected including friends and family. It’s a diagnosis that can take one’s breath away. I remember hearing the news that my grandmother who raised me, had cancer. The initial reaction was mind-numbing terror, shock, and simply wanting to flee. All I knew at the time was that cancer was a death sentence.

Unfortunately, 40 years later, little has changed with regard to survival rates even with “modern advances”.

Side Effects of Chemotherapy: Cancer Doesn't Kill Most Patients

2015-10-15 17:18

Chemotherapy is one of the most deadly drugs on the planet. Chemotherapy ravages your body, killing healthy cells, and has horrendous side effects including death and secondary cancers. Chemotherapy has a 2.1% success rate yet along with surgery and radiation, is still a leading allopathic treatment. [1] And we all know someone, possible many people, who have gone through traditional treatment only to be told their cancer was back or has spread. Chemotherapy is not only ineffective, it’s barbaric.

The real killer behind 3 out of 4 cancer deaths is not cancer but a syndrome called cachexia or extreme malnutrition which can be preventable.
