The Cancer Care Program
 A Natural Approach to Treatment


HIGH-DOSE INTRAVENOUS VITAMIN C

Vitamin C has been researched and used as a cancer treatment since the time of Nobel prize winner Linus Pauling.

In the intravenous format, it has been used for decades in Europe, Canada, USA and Mexico. Recent research in the USA by Hugh D. Riordan, MD and colleagues, as well as by Dr. Jeanne A. Drisko MD and colleagues, has validated . . .

Vitamin C

. . . That rapid infusion of high-dose intravenous (I.V.) Vitamin C is preferentially toxic to tumour cells similar to cytotoxic drug chemotherapy but with a better safety profile.

Laboratory and clinical studies indicate that in high enough doses, one can maintain blood plasma concentrations of ascorbate high enough to selectively kill tumor cells. I.V. Vitamin C can also be taken around (but usually not on the same day) chemotherapy and radiation schedules improving overall results.

The Edmonton Journal has featured articles discussing the value of the rapid infusion of high-dose intravenous (I.V.) Vitamin C. One article was written by Marie McCullogh and appeared July 16, 2006 and another article written by Sharon Kirkey appeared March 28, 2006.

MISTLETOE

While it might only be gaining recent popularity in Canada, mistletoe is one of the most popular natural medicines used in Europe, especially Germany, for the treatment of cancer. It is also very popular in Mexico. It has many actions including activating (boosting) the immune system's NK (natural killer) cells, causing cancer cell death (apoptosis), inhibiting cancer cell growth, increasing resistance to infections and increasing tolerance to chemotherapy and radiation. It has also been shown to increase prevention of relapse after successful cancer treatment.

DIET & SPECIALIZED SUPPLEMENTS

Each patient in our Cancer Care Program receives detailed dietary and lifestyle information with respect to cancer. Also, each patient will be given an individualized supplement program. The supplements will be specific to each patient depending on the type of cancer they have, on whether the patient is undergoing chemotherapy, radiation or surgery, and on whether they are on any prescription medicines.

HOMOTOXICOLOGY

Homotoxicology is a scientifically proven and extensively researched medical system which integrates modern medical science like pathology, toxicology, biology, enzymology and immunology with homeopathic principles of treatment. It is a fairly new medicine that considers most diseases to be caused by a build up of toxins. Prolonged exposure to such toxins commonly found in our environment through the air we breath, the water we drink and the food we eat. The severity of the resulting illness often depends on the intensity and duration of toxic blockages and the body's natural ability to detoxify or eliminate these toxins.

Each patient in our Cancer Care Program will receive a specific homeopathic protocol to eliminate homotoxins from the body once they have finished any chemotherapy or radiation therapy. Empowering the body to naturally get rid of such toxins brings about healing and restores vitality and can prevent cancer reoccurrence.

HEAVY METAL TESTING & REMOVAL

Toxic metals such as lead, mercury, cadmium, arsenic and aluminum play no role in normal health and are considered toxic. Contamination with these substances can lead to serious illness and dysfunction. Provocative urine testing which is the most accurate assessment is used at our clinic. If toxic metals are found, a specific chelation program can be started. Removing heavy metals improves the body's ability to fight cancer.
