The Conventional Approach to Cancer Treatment is Questioned

Scientific proof emerges from the heart of the conventional scientific establishment, not from the fringes of alternative medicine. A book published two years ago called Cancer as a Metabolic Disease, written by Thomas N. Seyfried, PhD. Continue reading

New Drug On The Horizon, Giving Hope To Many

It has been well established that chemotherapy and radiation treatments for cancer can induce toxic side effects to the body. This is an unfortunately common consequence of these therapies due to their effects on healthy cells. One type of toxic side effect induced by chemotherapy and/or radiation is mucositis. Mucositis is the painful inflammation and ulceration of the mucous membranes. Mucous membranes are found in the digestive, respiratory and urogenital tracts including the mouth, nose, eyelids, trachea, lungs, stomach, intestines, ureters, urethra and bladder. These mucous membranes are made up of very sensitive epithelial tissue and are more susceptible to the damage caused by radiation or chemotherapy.  It has been reported that for most cancer treatments, anywhere from 5% to 15% of patients will develop mucositis. When treated specifically with 5-fluorouracil the chances of a patient developing mucositis increases to 40%. Also, due to the high doses of chemotherapy or radiation in preparation for a bone marrow transplant, it is estimated that around 75% to 80% of these patients will develop mucositis.

Binaural Beats – The Power Of Sound

More and more doctors, researchers and scientists are looking into the field of sound therapy especially bioresonance therapy and the use of binaural beats. To really understand binaural beats and bioresonance therapy, we first need to discuss the healing power of sound. Although the creation of binaural beats has only been possible through advancements in technology in the last few decades or so, the use of this natural science dates back thousands of years. Ancient cultures were aware of how the brain could be entrained through sound repetition well before modern science was able to prove the process. This phenomena didn’t have a fancy name like binaural beats and bioresonance therapy, but what was known was that consistent, rhythmic sound had extremely powerful healing and spiritual benefits. For example: through the use of repetitive drumming and chanting, Tibetan monks, Native American shamans, Hindu healers and master Yogis have been able to induce specific brainwave states for transcending consciousness, healing, concentration and spiritual growth.

Chemotherapy Induced Malignancy And Future Solutions

Chemotherapy and radiation is an integral part of cancer treatment, more than half of all cancer patients will undergo one or both therapies. With significant advances made in the field of chemo and radiation the amount of long-term cancer survivors has dramatically increased over the years, however, there is a growing concern about the chance of developing a secondary malignancy. Secondary malignancy means a cancer that develops entirely separately from the primary cancer, as a result of chemotherapy and or radiation. It may take months or years to develop but is directly caused by the carcinogenic factors of chemotherapy and radiation. It is estimated that roughly 10% of cancer survivors will develop a secondary cancer related to the treatment of their primary cancer. Continue reading

New Immunotherapy Treatment Attacks Cancer Cells

This new immunotherapy was decidedly different from the treatments people received before. Instead of attacking the cancer with poisons like chemotherapy and radiation, the Philadelphia doctors taught the immune cells to become more adept at killing the cancer cells. This is the basic concept behind immunotherapy. Continue reading
