How Biotherapy Alternative Medicine Clinic can help people with cancer
Each one of us produces several thousand cancer cells every day of our lives. Whether we develop clinical cancer or not depends upon the ability of our immune system to destroy these cancer cells. It is only a weakened or unhealthy immune system that makes the body cancer-prone. Ninety-five percent of all cancer patients are immuno-suppressed due to physical, chemical, mental, and environmental causes.
Why is there so much cancer today? The simple fact is we are slowly being poisoned to death. Each year people are exposed to thousands of toxic chemicals and pollutants in the air, water, food, and soil. People living today carry in their bodies a “chemical cocktail” made up of industrial chemicals, pesticides, food additives, heavy metals, and residues of therapeutic pharmaceuticals, as well as legal drugs (alcohol, tobacco, caffeine) and illegal drugs (heroine, cocaine, marijuana). Other common causes of toxicity are poor elimination, poor diet, and overeating, inadequate consumption of water, stress, and lack of exercise. Such toxicity manifests in a variety of symptoms, including decreased immune function, cell poisoning, hormonal dysfunction, psychological disturbances, environmental illness and chronic fatigue, many degenerative diseases, and cancer.
At Biotherapy Alternative Medicine Clinic of San Francisco Bay Area we use safe, effective, nontoxic, holistic methods to help cancer patients:
Strengthen the immune system as the best protection against cancer—-Restore the ability of the body’s own self-healing process to fight against cancer—-Detoxify the body of its many cumulative poisons—-Fortify the body with nutrients—-Minimize the side effects of chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery—-Prevent future recurrences.
At Biotherapy Clinic, we firmly believe that in most cases the blending of both conventional and alternative approaches is the best way to rescue a cancer patient. We help our patients by using the following combination of healing approaches that do not exist together anywhere else in one single location:
European Whole Body Cleansing Program
Restoration of healthy intestinal flora (destroyed by chemotherapy, hormones, and antibiotics)
Herbal medicine, “anticancer” herbs
Nutrition and healing foods consultation
Food supplements and Vitamins
Hypnosis and deep relaxation
All of these approaches which are widely used by medical doctors and health practitioners around the world can give cancer patients a chance in the battle against cancer.
Colon hydrotherapy, known as a colonic, helps to purge the colon of accumulated toxins, parasites, dead cells, and waste products. Many experts consider the bowel to play the most important role in maintaining the body’s health. Keeping the large intestine in good working order is highly beneficial to the cancer patient. The intestines are an integral part of the immune system as they contain more immune (lymphoid) tissue and produce more hormones and neurochemicals than any other organ in the body.
At Biotherapy Clinic, we usually recommend four to six colon hydrotherapy sessions during the first three weeks and then regular maintenance one to three times a month as determined by the health practitioner.
European Whole Body Cleansing Program is a comprehensive 7-week program designed to cleanse your body from toxins, restore the friendly intestinal flora, replenish your body with potent vitamins and food supplements, and teach you about healthy eating habits. Our goal is to make you feel better and look younger, and improve the quality of your life. For more information, click here.
The human intestinal tract harbors friendly and unfriendly microorganisms, “good guys” and “bad guys,” in a delicate balance. “Friendly” flora refers to the population of helpful microorganisms that live in our bodies in places such as the colon, mouth, and vagina and on the skin surfaces of our bodies. These are the bacteria that live with us and do work in return for room and board.
Many experts consider that beneficial “friendly” bacteria can play an important role in anticancer defense and immune function enhancement. But with current lifestyles, stress, the excessive consumption of processed food, sugar and alcohol, drinking chlorinated water, and especially after conventional cancer treatment, the balance between “good guys” and “bad guys” is often upset. It leads to the dangerous overgrowth of disease – causing putrefactive microbes and toxicity within the body. One of the most common pathogens is yeast called Candida. The overgrowth of Candida is a proven source of internal toxins. Bowel candidiasis and systemic candidiasis are common after the excessive use of antibiotics, hormones, chemotherapy, and radiation.
Among the many health-promoting functions of “friendly bacteria,” they:
- Exert direct activity against tumors
- Prevent cancer by detoxifying or preventing the formation of carcinogenic chemicals
- Reduce the level of cholesterol
- Help produce important B-vitamins, which assist in immuno-competence
- Curb or destroy potentially pathogenic bacteria and hostile yeast such as Candida
- Enhance the digestibility of foods
At Biotherapy Clinic we can help you restore healthy intestinal flora. We use a wide spectrum of high-potency probiotics administered orally, vaginally, and using a special method of implantation into the colon.
Herbal therapy is the oldest recorded remedy and the newest scientific trend for cancer treatment. At Biotherapy Clinic we use herbs from all over the planet, formulated by Peter Melamed LicAc., Ph.D., an herbalist with 25 years of experience.
These herbal formulas are specially customized for individual needs.
Nutrition and Healing Foods Consultation
Healthy eating habits are essential in cancer prevention and crucial for cancer patients. The diet is undoubtedly our best, safest, and cheapest form of alternative medicine.
At the Biotherapy Clinic, we customize a specific diet to help you stay well or become well. We shall explain the therapeutic values of nutrients, fibers, essential fatty acids, vitamins, minerals, and enzymes specifically needed for each person. We will help you normalize the functioning of the gastro-intestinal tract, liver, and kidneys and restore the healthy intestinal flora in the small and large intestines. Using the “healing power of food”, we can give you a customized diet plan that was developed in European naturopathic clinics. There is no effective healing process for any disorders without a special diet and proper food combining.
Food Supplements and Vitamins
Many vitamins and minerals help regulate the conversion of food to energy, and some of them help defend against damaging toxins. Many supplements often work as a team to stimulate the immune function and can enhance the activity of natural killer (NK) cells and other immune cells against tumor. NK cells can stop the spread of cancer cells (micrometastases). For example, research has shown that NK activity is amplified by supplementation with selenium, germanium, and ascorbic acid. Antioxidants, in general, help protect the cell’s genetic material and membranes from free radical damage. They are a huge part of the body’s anticancer defenses.
Here are some examples:
Vitamin C: most commonly used antioxidant to extend survival and improve the quality of life; it can selectively kill tumor cells.
B-complex vitamins. Deficiencies of one or more of the B vitamins inhibit the immune system’s ability to fight cancer and diminish the body’s chances of recovery.
Selenium. This mineral is often deficient in cancer patients. Experts found that supplementation with selenium, vitamin E, and beta-carotene, led to a 13 percent reduction in cancer death.
Obviously, there is no such thing as a “one pill cures all” in cancer prevention or elimination. Food supplements and vitamins should be carefully chosen according to individual needs. Different people, as well as different conditions, require different approaches. Not only do we have the best vitamins, herbs and food supplements available on the market, but we can also help you choose what would be the most beneficial for your health, helping you achieve the best results.
In the cancer patient, acupuncture can be used to improve energy levels and strengthen the immune system. It is also applied to create a sense of well being and to symptomatically treat the side effects of radiation and chemotherapy. It is also effective as a treatment for cancer-associated pain.
Acupuncture has exhibited a wide range of actions in boosting immunity, including increasing the number of white blood cells, boosting natural killer cell activity, and increasing the amount of B-cells, which manufacture antibodies, chemicals that help destroy foreign invaders in the body. Acupuncture also elevates the levels of circulating immunoglobulins and stimulates the production of red blood cells. It can be very helpful in stress reduction.
The panel of experts of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) stated in 1997: there is clear evidence that needle acupuncture is efficacious for “…chemotherapy, nausea, and vomiting and … various pain problems.”
For those who feel uncomfortable with the idea of needles being stuck in them, other non-needle techniques are available to stimulate the acupuncture points and balance the body’s energy system. Acupressure, vibro-magnetic point massage, and electropuncture are also utilized to activate the points.
Hypnosis and Deep relaxation
Up to 40 percent of cancer patients experience clinically significant anxiety and depression. Nine out of ten of these patients say their distress is linked mainly with the diagnosis and treatment. The connection between emotional stress and cancer survival can be explained by recent findings in psychoneuroimmunology. Stress causes a suppression of the immune system. Many doctors who are working with cancer patients state that survival is not based so much on the severity of the disease as on the patient’s attitude. A “fighting spirit” attitude toward their cancer is the strongest psychological component of all for promoting survival. The more positive your mental attitude, the better your immune system fights cancer. We believe that our body is a self-healing instrument, if we give it a chance. It is genetically preprogrammed to heal itself.
At Biotherapy Alternative Medicine Clinic we apply our own unique relaxation techniques. They include acupuncture with stimulation of the “master points” in the ear lobe by magnets or electricity, and hypnosis or meditation. Applied all together, these techniques bring about a condition of deep relaxation.
The value of hypnosis in producing several health benefits is widely accepted. The American Medical Association approved hypnotherapy as a valid medical treatment in 1958. While the medical community is aware of the lasting benefits of hypnosis, no one is certain of the reason behind the benefits. Some scientists believe that hypnosis can cause the brain to release natural pain killers, called enkephalins and endorphins, to alleviate pain. Others believe that hypnosis acts through the unconscious mind and the power of suggestion. Either way, the American Cancer Society endorses hypnotherapy as a means of reducing pain, promoting relaxation, reducing stress and improving quality of life.
