The fight against cancer begins within. In the past few decades many theories on the rise of cancer have been proposed, extensively studied, and yet have failed to provide significant advances in treatment options or improved mortality. Many alternative medicine doctors, including MD’s, DO’s and ND’s, have had extensive continuing education in cancer alternatives thus offering many supportive options to main stream protocols. The addition of alternative medical therapies, to enhance, support, or even replace standard treatment protocols is often called integrative care.
Integrative cancer care, (or co-treatment as it is also sometimes called), combines the best of western medicine and naturopathic or alternative medicine for the benefit of the patient as a whole. Cancer is a systemic disease and though it may be isolated through radiology to a defined area, we treat the whole body and person to eradicate cancer, reduce risk of metastasis, and reduce risk of cancer recurrence. To this end we find it highly beneficial to involve the leading doctors in every field of specialty to do their part in helping a patient prevent cancer or achieve a quick and permanent cancer remission.
WHAT IS CANCER?
The foundation of cancer treatment at East Valley Naturopathic Doctors is based on the profound research of Otto Warburg. Otto Warburg, M.D.,Ph.D., proved that a 35% reduction in oxygen caused any cell to either die or turn cancerous. Cancer is the body, at the cellular level, attempting to survive by reverting to a primitive survival mechanism. Surprisingly, it’s that simple. Most normal healthy cells get their energy by using oxygen in a process called “respiration.” This can be contrasted with the way cells utilize energy without sufficient oxygen, called “fermentation.” Fermentation of sugar provides a way for cells to keep going even in the presence of partial oxygen deprivation. In the presence of oxygen deficiency, cells that can’t obtain enough energy through fermentation perish. But the cells which succeed in utilizing fermentation exhibit their innate will to survive; these are the ones that don’t die from the oxygen deficiency.
As directed by Nature, in using this alternative source of energy, our cells are fulfilling their primary mission, which is to stay alive and reproduce. This takes place on all levels for all living things, and in the case of oxygen deficiency, cells are struggling to survive in a hostile environment of humans’ own making. That’s right we unknowingly have forced our own cells to become cancerous. After it begins, the disease worsens, since most humans hosting it never feel the cancer growing and so we don’t take corrective measures. Once it shows up in lab tests, you’ve been hosting the cancer cells for years, often decades. Nature has given every cell the potential to survive without oxygen, through fermentation. If that potential is not developed enough, then the cell will die when the oxygen drops below the 35% threshold. If none of our cells could run without oxygen, they would die immediately with no possible chance of future survival.
Chronic deficiency of oxygen damages the mitochondria (energy producers) of the cell so the cell, if it can, reverts to the ancient energy source of fermentation of sugar. A cancer cell running on fermentation can stay alive (without growing) with just 20% of a normal cell’s energy. But one major problem is that this method is very inefficient. The cells that can run on fermentation without oxygen stay alive and become more prevalent as the other cells die. But there is a huge price to be paid: lack of cellular intelligence-these cells have the intelligence of “dumb yeast” Cancer is not an “ultra intelligent” entity, as many misled researchers portray; instead, it is the “idiot cell” that can survive but do little more than reproduce more “idiot cells.” So these cells lose their differentiation as functional parts of the body and spread as useless masses of tissue, eventually interfering with and shutting down the body’s functions if nothing is done to prevent it.
Cancer is a Systemic Problem, Not a Local One.
Many physicians think that cancer is a localized issue, meaning only the affected tissue is the problem because the genes are ruined there. This is incorrect. Cancer is not and has never been genetic in origin. What is correct is that the cancerous tissue is the MOST OXYGEN DEPRIVED TISSUE; that’s why that particular tissue became cancerous.
ALL TREATMENTS PROVIDED BY EAST VALLEY NATUROPATHIC DOCTORS ARE TARGETED TOWARD REVERSAL OF THIS OXYGEN DEPRIVATION AND ENHANCING IMMUNE FUNCTION TO ERADICATE CANCER COMPLETELY.
Whether a patient chooses to participate completely with standard chemotherapy and radiation protocols, alternative medicine can reduce chemotherapy and radiation induced cancer by 80-100%, increase effectiveness of both chemotherapy and radiation therapy, reduce risk of metastases, stunt cancer growth and spread, increase life expectancy and reduce side effects. Alternative medicine is absolutely beneficial and perhaps completely necessary for cancer eradication and permanent remission.
