Your oncologist wants to destroy tumor by chemotherapy. Unfortunately, your condition may stop this treatment. Most of the people, which undergo traditional chemotherapy, suffer from the side effects such as
- Nausea and vomiting
- Lost appetite
- Mouth sores
- Liver and kidneys problems
- Low blood count
- Nervous system disorders (neuropathy, depression, declining memory)
- Deficiency of the vital nutrients and more
It is understandable. The standard chemotherapy drugs are very poisoning substances, which damage not only the cancer cells but also fast-growing healthy cells. These include cells in the blood, nervous system, mouth, stomach, intestines, bone marrow, and hair follicles.
After intravenous administration, the high amount of the chemotherapy drugs in the blood and tissues destroys the cancer cells for 12 hours. It is a critical time. After that, the body tries to get rid of the poisonous substances by elimination them through the kidneys. 40–60% goes to urine as unchanged drug (20–30% of them within 24 hours).
About 50% of the chemo drugs and their toxic by-products metabolize in a liver and release through bile. Not too many people recognize that bile is a carriage of the chemotherapy drugs and their metabolites from the liver into the gastrointestinal tract. Thus, 16% of the chemo drugs and their toxic by-products are released from the body through the colon within 72 hours causing irritation and affect inner ecology. It may kill beneficial bacteria and lead to overgrowth of yeast.
It is known that during the elimination from the body the chemotherapy drugs cause the damage of the kidneys, liver, and colon.
Knowing the basic pharmacology of the chemo drugs helps the practitioners of the Biotherapy Alternative Medicine Clinic to decrease their toxic side effects without the influence in their anti-cancer property. We just can help your oncologist to restore the normal functions of the organs and systems by using non-drug approaches of the alternative medicine including
- Healing, alkaline diet
- Restoration of the beneficial intestinal bacteria
- Anti-Candida treatment
- Normalizing acid-alkaline balance
- Boosting immunity
- Replacing the deficiencies of the vital nutrients
- Reducing pain
- Diminishing the internal toxicity
- Lessening stress, anxiety, depression by relaxation techniques and more
It may help:
- Create better tolerability of chemotherapy treatment. Severe side effects forced oncologist to stop treatment
- Reduce and postpone serious side effects
- Improve the outcome of the entire anti-cancer treatments
- Protect the elimination organs such as liver, kidneys, and colon
- Improve the patient’s quality of life
In the Biotherapy Alternative Medicine Clinic of San Francisco we use unique acupuncture techniques, detoxification, medical hypnoses, and nutritional supplements. *
For example, we use genuine Karlovy Vary thermal spring salt. Europeans have practiced it for the reducing the inner toxicity by enhancing liver, kidneys and colon function for 250 years. Healing mineral water that is prepared from this salt is close by mineral content to the human plasma ( the liquid part of the blood). Healing mineral water alkalizes the body.
Why does it matter? Because chemotherapy drugs mostly cause acidity and damage the body cells. When the chemotherapy drugs destroy the cancer cells many toxic, acidic substances are released in the blood causing severe body acidity. Neutralizing and elimination of this poisoned stuff are vital.
Additionally, natural alkalizing promotes the safe elimination of the chemo drugs and their toxic by-products through the kidneys, liver, colon.
Another way to restore the normal, slightly alkaline environment after using chemo drugs is Cellular Magnesium-Potassium. The frequency of hypomagnesemia-low blood level of magnesium in critically ill cancer patients is high. Magnesium deficiency is a common condition during chemotherapy causing confusion, muscle weakness, depression, insomnia, “jerky” movements, high blood pressure, and irregular heart rhythms, etc.
In the Biotherapy Alternative Medicine Clinic of San Francisco we widely practice of acupuncture. http://www.biotherapy-clinic.com/acupuncture.html
Medical research that explores the mechanisms of acupuncture for cancer patients has focused largely on the role of acupuncture in the boosting of immune system boosting blood cell count and enhancing natural killer cell activity. Acupuncture is largely beneficial for the management of chemotherapy-induced nausea/vomiting and other symptoms, which affect a patient’s quality of life, including insomnia, depression, anxiety, pain, weight loss, poor appetite, and gastrointestinal symptoms (constipation and diarrhea). Acupuncture is accepted by children aged ten years and older. We combine acupuncture with relaxation and medical hypnosis in one session.
The chemotherapy, many rounds of antibiotics, systemic corticosteroid treatment and low immunity destroy the healthy intestinal bacteria. Biotherapy program for restoration of “good” bacteria is an important part of the alternative, non-drug treatment for the side effects of the chemotherapy. Beneficial, friendly intestinal bacteria promote the proper digestion, immunity, metabolism and control the growth of the opportunistic infection such as harmful bacteria, parasites, yeast.
Lack of the beneficial intestinal bacteria can lead to the dangerous overgrowth of disease-causing putrefactive microorganisms and internal toxicity. One of the most shared and harmful is yeast called Candida. The overgrowth of Candida-yeast is a proven source of internal toxins. Intestinal candidiasis and systemic candidiasis are common after the excessive use of antibiotics, hormones, and chemotherapy
Replacing the deficiencies of the vital nutrients may help to avoid many side effects of the chemotherapeutic drugs and increase the quality of life. In Biotherapy Clinic, we only use substances, which the healthy body has. Cancer chemotherapy patients with poor nutritional status predisposed to progressive wasting, weakness, and lower resistance to infection. For the other hand, a person with the proper nutritional status is better able to tolerate cancer therapy and its side effects.
To obtain the benefits of reduced side effects of chemotherapy, one can select the following options:
