The Center for Advanced Medicine focuses on effective science-based integrative cancer treatment therapies. There are many potential ways to treat cancer, but each cancer patient is different. What worked for your neighbor may not be effective for you. The Center for Advanced Medicine treats the individual. Our integrative oncology approach combines the best aspects of conventional and alternative medicine and pinpoints the best treatment plan based on testing, research, and our clinical experience.
These are some of the cancer treatments available at The Center for Advanced Medicine:
Scientists have been questioning the “more is better” approach to chemotherapy for quite some time. The way we use chemo differs dramatically from conventional oncology. There are several distinct advantages to this approach of giving smaller doses more often.
Insulin potentiation therapy, or IPT, can be thought of as a method of delivering chemotherapy rather than a treatment in and of itself. IPT is believed to affect the metabolism of cancer cells, making them more sensitive to chemotherapy agents (thus the reason for using significantly less chemotherapy). While we do not think it is appropriate for everyone, it can be an option for patients who have either failed full-dose chemotherapy previously, are not candidates for full-dose chemotherapy, or who prefer to try a gentler and safer approach.
Viscum use for cancer is mentioned in the literate starting in the early 1900s. First and foremost, Viscum is an immune system enhancing therapy. Viscum also has a cytotoxic (cancer cell-killing) effect through its inhibition of protein synthesis. Also, Viscum has an anti-cancer effect as a result of its inability to block a process known as angiogenesis.
There are now many scientific studies that show nutrition does make a difference in cancer treatment and prevention. By practicing integrative oncology, we make room for the importance of nutrition in any cancer treatment plan.
We know there is a real connection between our thoughts and emotions and our immune system. But what about cancer? Harnessing the power of the mind has significant therapeutic implications when fighting cancer. It turns out that our mental and emotional state can impact cancer treatment.
Cancer cells have been shown to have an abnormal resonance that differs from normal, healthy cells. Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy (PEMF) is a simple, painless, and non-invasive way to address abnormal resonance in cancer cells. In addition, PEMF has been shown to assist in making cell membranes more permeable.
