At Pacific Medical Center of Hope, we are trained to provide complementary treatments for patients who have immune dysfunction and cancer. This will include an extensive genetic testing as well as metabolic evaluation and Immune system assessment for patients with diagnosed cancer of all types. That said we do not calim that we cure cancer nor we are traditional oncologists.
Generally patients seek alternative treatments for cancer when it is in advanced stages. Although difficult, to treat cancer at that advanced stage, still there are many ways that we can help patients. Some are under chemotherapy or post surgery, and some hesitate to start any conventional treatments due to the toxic side effects and potentially recurring nature of the disease.
We do not recommend against conventional treatments, however we provide complementary ways to control and manage the cancer and assist the body to fight with it through different modalities without any toxic and dangerous side effects.
These modalities of treatment include modifying genetic behaviour with IV treatments, Enhancing immune system function with very advanced technologies. These methods of treatment are cutting edge and unfortunately not available at local oncology offices. Most of our labs are not locally available either and they are performed at East coast or Germany. After the results of the tests are back, we come up with a plan of treatment which may include weekley or daily IV therapies.
Studies reveal that these methods are very useful in modulating the immune system. Also by correcting the metabolic imbalances caused by the cancer cells, such as correcting excessive intracellular acidity and glucose abnormal metabolism, and removing toxic products produced by cancer, patients gain significant improvement in their response to treatment and their symptoms and their quality of life. Results are beyond expectations sometimes even in advanced stages of the disease.
The job of the physician is to alleviate and, if possible, eradicate disease. However, accomplishing this is often very difficult as most treatments for cancer also come with significant adverse effects, often making it impossible to truly recover and compromising the patient's remission. Essentially, the potential benefit of the treatment is thwarted by its harsh toxicity.
Biologists and physicians are charged with the task of understanding the origin of the disease and preventing its appearance and development. Both physicians and scientists approach this task differently, but their goals are complementary.
On the one hand, complementary and alternative medicines look for substances that can be effective without inducing negative side effects. Yet, within their ranks they often lack the disciplined scientists needed to provide them such a treatment. This dilemma calls for innovation--for thinking outside the box-- We apply rigorous scientific standards to a combination of conventional and holistic approaches.Following articles are recommended to review for better understanding the mechanism of action of most of the treatment modalities: Please refer to www.medhyperbaric.com for literature in regards to the usage of hyperbaric oxygen in cancer ( NOW available for the first time in our clinic).
