Integrative Cancer Support
While we don’t offer cancer treatments, we do offer cancer support. That means that we keep you healthy, so your body endures cancer treatments. You may feel drained and downtrodden as the treatment destroys the cancer cells. Cancer treatments have harsh side effects that can make your life difficult and uncomfortable. Integrative support treatments can reduce the intensity of these side effects.
Integrative medicine focuses on healing your body through natural processes so that it can withstand your cancer treatments. It integrates a combination of functional medicine and holistic care. Holistic care uses natural and alternative treatments to heal your body. Integrative medicine aims to improve your overall health as opposed to just treating symptoms. This approach offers long-lasting, effective results.
Traditional cancer treatments, such as chemotherapy and radiation, destroy cancer cells and encourage remission periods. At times, these treatments, while effective, have adverse effects on your body, leaving you with symptoms such as:
- Sleeping problems
- Decreased body temperature
- Weakened immune system
- Disrupted appetite
How Does Integrative Cancer Support Work?
Integrative medicine aims to reduce the severity of your side effects while strengthening your body to increase the chances of success. Integrative support treatments are also known as complementary cancer therapies. By reducing the severity of side effects and strengthening your immune system, your body has a higher chance of destroying cancer cells permanently. These cancer support therapies are safe. They won’t cause further damage to your body. Instead, they help to heal damaged tissue so your body can be at peak performance during chemotherapy and radiation treatments.Integrative Support Treatments We Offer
Many experts disagree about vitamin C as a cancer therapy. However, there is evidence that shows that vitamin C can strengthen your body as it goes through radiation and chemotherapy. This helps improve your quality of life and reduce the intense side effects of cancer treatments. We offer high doses of vitamin C through IV infusions to reach cancer cells. These high doses of vitamin C are safe and effective ways to boost your immune system.
IV Ozone Therapy
We can increase oxygen levels in your body by administering Ozone, which has three oxygen atoms instead of two. This is especially effective if you have an oxygen deficiency in your blood. Ozone is administered intravenously, so it can bypass your digestive system and target your blood, which is where it is needed. Ozone therapy improves your resistance to infections, blood circulation, and immune system functions. This integrative medicine can also ease pain and discomfort from cancer treatments.
Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation (UBI)
Often, we combine ultraviolet blood irradiation with Ozone therapy. During IBU therapy, we expose your blood to ultraviolet light to kill bacteria and viruses. It also strengthens your immune system. UBI treatments are almost like vaccines that help your body develop an immunity to pathogens. Like Ozone therapy, UBI therapy improves blood circulation and oxygen levels to weaken cancer cells, making it easier for chemotherapy and radiation to destroy them. For this reason, UBI is used in conjunction with traditional cancer treatments to yield the best results.
There are various dietary supplements and herbal remedies that strengthen your body by providing essential vitamins and minerals. When you visit us, we can assess your current health condition to determine a suitable combination of supplements and remedies. This is a natural way to keep your body strong, so it can destroy cancer cells effectively.
Mistletoe Therapy and Injectables
Mistletoe is a type of plant that has many medicinal properties. Mistletoe extracts are used in oncology support treatments as complementary cancer therapy. It can treat malignant and non-malignant tumors, stimulate bone marrow activity, and reduce side effects in a safe way. It can ease symptoms such as fatigue and nausea. If you are experiencing pain as a result of the tumor, mistletoe therapy can provide some relief.
The great thing about mistletoe is that it can be used during any stage of cancer. It can also be used after cancer to prevent relapses. Mistletoe is normally used with traditional cancer treatments, but some use it as their primary cancer treatment.
