Alternative Therapy for Fewer Side Effects
Many patients have anxiety about chemotherapy and radiation and would prefer alternative medicine to these treatment options. Alternative medicine may include: IPT, IV Therapy, detoxification, immune modulation or naturopathic solutions. Since all cancers are different, some alternative treatments may be more effective than others. Here are some of the benefits of alternative cancer treatments:
Benefits of Naturopathic Clinicians
Naturopathic clinicians use natural and non-toxic therapies to encourage healing and overall general wellbeing. The goal of naturopathic clinicians is to encourage the self-healing process while minimizing the harmful side effects. Naturopathic clinicians can be found at any Cancer Treatment Center of America. They employ the following treatments to restore health with the least possible force.
Nutrition. Some medical conditions may be treated with foods and nutritional supplements. This form of treatment has few side effects and complications.
Homeopathy. Homeopathic medicines gently strengthen immune response and trigger the healing process. Plant extracts are often used to promote healing.
Botanical Medicine. Botanical medicine involves the use of vitamins, minerals and supplements to boost the immune system and heal the body. Plant substances help more health problems than traditional medicines by working with the body.
Hydrotherapy. Application of water at varied temperatures can stimulate the body’s immune system and decrease inflammation.
Chinese Medicine. Chinese medicine and acupuncture may be used as a complement to naturopathic medicine.
Low-Level Laser Therapy. Chemotherapy often results in numbness or tingling in patient’s limbs. This treatment can alleviate pain, lymphedema, and fatigue.
Benefits of IPT
Insulin Potentiation Therapy (IPT) targets cancer cells with insulin. Cancer cells get their energy through insulin made by the cells. Insulin and insulin-like growth factor attach to special cell membrane receptors. When insulin is used in IPT, it acts like a low-dose chemotherapy without the side effects. This treatment kills cancer cells with the same methods that cancer kills the human body. Patients using IPT have a better quality of life than those using traditional chemotherapy.
Benefits of IV Therapy
Intravenous vitamin C therapy is speculated to be effective in fighting cancer. At concentrations of 220 micromoles per liter, vitamin C behaves as an anti-oxidant and protects healthy cells from bacteria, viruses and oxidative stress. At 1000 micromoles per liter, vitamin C acts as a pro-oxidant and is toxic to cancer cells.
Oral vitamin C cannot achieve these levels of vitamin C to fight cancer. Hydrogen peroxide is produced at high levels, and this kills cancer cells. There are few side effects associated with this type of therapy.
Benefits of Detoxification
Detoxification can use a variety of vitamins and minerals to fight cancer. Two of the most effective methods of detoxification are magnesium and vitamin B17. Magnesium eliminates cancer-causing toxins and increases cellular energy production. Beans have a considerable amount of magnesium. Wheatgrass contains vitamin B17 and is also used in detoxification diets.
Benefits of Immune Modulation
Immune restoration is possible with the help of vaccines, supplements, immune-imagery and Iscador therapy. Iscador therapy uses mistletoe to stimulate the immune system and slow the growth of cancer cells. The medicinal plant has been used since early 20th century. The plant has few side effects and increases appetite, vitality and weight. It also improves sleep patterns, mental state and quality of life.
Alternative treatments can help cancer patients avoid side effects and heal the body naturally. It may also help colon cancer or mesothelioma doctors in their efforts against cancer. Consider how alternative treatments can help you heal faster with few side effects.
