Cancer after Care - The Naturopathic Approach
COMMON PROBLEMS FACED:

Doctors may not prepare patients in remission on what to expect or do after treatment. This often leads to unrealistic expectations of wellness of patients, families and friends. They may be concerned and constantly worried about recurrence.

The main objective of the Naturopathic Clinic’s, Cancer After Care Department is to help patients remain cancer free with proven treatment in terms of scientific evidence and published journals.

Our Objectives:

  • To help cancer patients in remission to remain cancer free.
  • Cellular support to minimize risks of recurrence.
  • To improve overall quality of life.
  • To increase life span.
The consultation involves advising patients on how to achieve and maintain optimal health so as to reduce bombardments by free radicals and carcinogens that increase the chances of recurrence. This includes enhancing immunity, anti-oxidant and detoxification functions and this must start from within the body. We emphasize on ensuring that all our patients understand the important knowledge in making use of their body’s most powerful healing agent within the cells to achieve the objectives of the clinic.

In addition to leading a healthy lifestyle such as healthy diet, lower stress levels, exercise and regular checks with the oncologists to ensure that the cancer has not returned, it is important to understand what are the causes of cancer so as to know how to reduce the risks of the cancer returning.

Two major considerations in Cancer Rehabilitation are:

A) Anabolic/Catabolic Balance

Anabolism refers to cellular buildup. Catabolism refers to cellular breakdown. These two processes are involved in ageing. As you age poorly due to chronic diseases like cancer, catabolism increases much faster than it should

Cachexia and Cancer

Progressive weight loss is a common feature of many types of cancer and is responsible not only for a poor quality of life and poor response to chemotherapy, but also a shorter survival time than is found in patients with comparable tumors without weight loss (The Journal of Nutrition Vol. 129 No. 1 January 1999, pp. 243S-246S).

Researchers previously believed that cancer increased metabolic demand (stolen protein), produced toxins, and suppressed appetite, resulting in malnutrition. New research, however, shows that although cancer may raise resting metabolic rate, improved nutrition does not alleviate the symptoms of anorexia, chronic nausea, early satiety, and changes in taste that make even favorite foods unpalatable to some cancer patients. The view of clinicians is that bodily wasting is the result of a combined action of tumor products and host immune factors--in particular, cytokines--that lead to poor appetite, muscle wasting, and an altered metabolism. The cytokines interleukin-1 (IL-1), IL-6, interferon-gamma, tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha), and brain-derived neurotrophic factor appear to increase and play a role in the progression of cachexia in cancer, as well as in other diseases associated with bodily wasting.

Other metabolic alterations associated with the syndrome are hyperglyceridemia, lipolysis, and accelerated protein turnover, all leading to a loss of fat mass and body protein. The dysregulation of metabolic processes produces a negative energy balance.

B) Oxidative Stress –Environmental Damage and Hidden Infections

Oxidative Stress is a significant marker in disease and ageing. Oxidative stress is caused by Free Radicals.

Free radicals have been classified as an important class of carcinogens, ie cancer causing agents. (European Journal of Cancer, 1996 Jan;32A(1):30-8). Free radicals damage and destroy cell walls, cause cell deaths and disrupt DNA patterns that lead to diseases such as cancer. Cancer recurrence shares the same logic. Today, there is no doubt that anti-oxidants help diminish cell damage, lessen the threat of disease and slow down the harmful effects of ageing.

Antioxidants are substances that protect cells from damage caused by free radicals. They help prevent the free radicals damage that is associated with cancer. Pharmacies and health food stores are resplendent with a large array of different antioxidants. Although these antioxidants including vitamin C and vitamin E are "natural", they may be given yo you in a form that is not natural or bio-available. If you take a nutrient that is not bioavailable, no matter how good it may be, your body may not be able to use this.

Your body produces its own antioxidant that is found in every single cell of your body. This substance, known as GSH, is the most powerful antioxidant which is commonly known as the master antioxidant by scientists. In fact, the presence of GSH is crucial for the functioning of any of the other antioxidants that we know of. In addition, GSH is also known as "fuel for the immune system" and "toxic waste disposal system" in the body. It is therefore very important to ensure that your cells are producing enough of GSH, your body’s most powerful healing agent, to fight, heal and prevent cancer.

The logic is simple. Your body is made up of trillions of cells. If your cells are unhealthy or damaged, the chances of fighting cancer will be compromised. A good and solid foundation of healthy cells is the key to remain cancer free.

We are offering free radical testing by using the urine. Just a simple urine sample and you will know your level of free radicals. This indication will give you an idea on your state of health. We also measure other ways in which your body can generate free radicals as well as your Anabolic/Catabolic balance.

Our physicians will explain and guide patients towards the key to good health and long life. You will leave the clinic empowered with the knowledge of how to maximize your internal defense to protect yourself from bombardments that may lead to disease. In fact, the clinic aims at getting all its patients to achieve total well-being and improved quality of life.

Presently, there are over 84,000 scientific articles on The Most Powerful Healing Agent in the body, GSH, listed in the PubMed under the National Library of Medicine. This number is increased by approximately 3-5,000 new articles every year. It has been established that GSH level is consistently low in cancer patients. This is due to the fact that low levels of GSH leads to cells being susceptible to changes and mutations and this increase the risks of recurrence.

Even the discoverer of the Aids virus, Dr. Luc Montagnier, endorsed this cell healing treatment! Research scientists and doctors such as Assistant Professor Jimmy Gutman (MD, FACEP), Professor Gustavo Bounous (MD, FRCS(C)), Professor Wulf Dröge (PhD) and many others endorsed the cell healing treatment that our clinic recommends.

We will show you the original endorsements, scientific evidences, published medical journals and many more medical endorsements that this approach is well researched and recognized when you visit us.
