In managing cancer patients, we emphasize treatment techniques that enable the body to heal itself including detoxification, dietary protocols, and nutritional supplements that enhance and support the immune system and the healing process. Oral supplements include: vitamins, minerals, enzymes, herbs, phytonutrients, and other nutritional supplements. Intravenous hydrogen peroxide and/or intravenous infusions of high doses of vitamin C are often recommended. We frequently recommend amygdalin (Laetrile), a natural substance that appears to have some anti-cancer properties, for certain patients. Amygdalin may be given as an oral supplement and/or by intravenous infusion.
testing may be done in certain patients to evaluate nutritional status (direct
or functional vitamin tests, serum coenzyme Q10, red blood cell minerals), heavy
metal toxicity (provoked urine tests for mercury, lead, and others), the status
of the liver’s detoxification
mechanisms, hormone status (DHEA levels, basal temperatures for thyroid
function, and others) and immune status (Natural Killer Cell functional
activity). Of course, standard tests (such as a complete blood count, liver
chemistry tests, and blood cancer markers) are routinely ordered, especially if
they haven’t been done recently.
We also utilize the innovative, non-toxic, biological compounds developed by the late Dr. Mirko Beljanski, with certain patients.
therapies offered by Peter Reznik, CSW, PhD, at the Schachter Center are
essential for certain patients. Reiki,
an energy therapy made available by Sandra M. Davis, RM, IARP is helpful to some patients and contributes to healing on a deeper level
when combined with our total approach to cancer.
Our acupuncturist, Bob Connolly, works with many cancer patients to help
reduce pain and stimulate enhanced healing,
