Bladder Cancer - No longer a death sentence
At 51, Charles Daniels had a lot to live for. A thriving construction business, a precious 11 year old daughter and a happy long-term relationship. When he was diagnosed with bladder cancer, he was determined to beat the odds. Daniels case is typical – he tried conventional medicine until they had nothing left to offer but a poor prognosis, and then went out of the country for alternative cancer treatment and is cancer free today.
Just before Christmas 2007, Daniels urinated blood. He went right to his primary care doctor, who did an ultrasound and X-rays, which were inconclusive. Suspecting an infection, his doctor gave him antibiotics. Within 24 hours, the blood was no longer visible. But a follow up visit showed microscopic blood in his urine, and he was sent to a urologist. A cytoscopy exam (where a small camera is inserted into the bladder) and intra-venous pyelogram (an X-ray with contrast that provides pictures of the entire urinary system) found bladder cancer.
Lung Cancer Patients Have New Hope
Doug Abel blamed his severe fatigue and muscle pain on his long hours as a cross-country trucker. He began to develop frequent lung infections, and his chest hurt from constant coughing. Finally, his wife insisted he see the family doctor. He was diagnosed with non-small cell lung cancer at age 47. Fortunately for Abel, his sister had read about SonoPhoto Dynamic Therapy (SPDT), a newer treatment that offers long term success in healing lung cancer. SPDT brings patients from around the world to Germany for this treatment.
Lung cancer kills more Americans that the other top 5 cancers combined. Often, there are no symptoms until the disease is advanced. Persistent cough, shortness of breath, hoarseness, unexplained weight loss, anemia and sudden vision problems are also symptoms of lung cancer. Lung tumors are often found during routine medical tests.
Abel’s doctor found fluid in his lungs, and his lymph nodes and liver were swollen. An oncologist ordered a chest X-ray, CT scan, and biopsied tissue samples from his sputum, obtained by inserting a long needle into the pleural fluid. Other routine diagnostic tests for lung cancer include a Bronchoscopy, where a thin lighted tube is inserted through the nose or mouth into the lungs; CT guided fine needle aspiration and Thoracoscopy, where several small incisions are made in the chest and back so a lighted tube can view abnormalities and obtain tissue samples.
Medical Tourism - How American doctors are driving patients out of the country
When Eileen Draper told her gynecologist she was having menopausal symptoms, her doctor told her she had to start taking hormone replacement therapy (HRT). “Don’t I have a choice?” Draper asked. Her doctor told her that all of her patients in peri-menopause had to go on HRT; there was no choice if she wanted to keep her doctor.
But Draper had done extensive research, and she was not willing to risk the side effects of HRT. The doctor also required each patient to have annual bone density tests and mammograms. Eileen knew that mammograms emit large amounts of radiation, and these were expensive tests. Eileen did not have insurance. She decided to find a Naturopath, a doctor who treats without drugs. Surveys show that the reason most patients seek treatment outside of conventional medicine is because their doctors want to dictate tests and treatments, not allowing patients to make their own choices.
Nowadays, patients want to be partners with their doctors, able to discuss treatment options and be part of the decision making process. When faced with a life-threatening illness, patients want to feel they have some control over their situation. Being herded into conventional treatments without being allowed time to research and make informed decisions often means the patient loses faith in traditional medicine.
New Brain Cancer Treatment Free of Side Effects
Linda Roberts was puzzled when her favorite food, chocolate ice cream, suddenly did not taste good, and her prized orchids didn’t smell nice either. When she began having sudden, severe headaches, she mentioned the changes in taste and smell to her doctor. After several tests, Roberts was diagnosed with a glioblastoma multiforme, the most aggressive form of brain tumor. As frightening as the diagnosis was, Roberts took the time to research the disease, treatment options and survival rates. Roberts would become one of half a million Americans choosing to seek treatment outside the country.
Glioblastomas develop in the glial cells, the soft spongy tissue that supports nerve cells in the brain. This type of tumor is slightly more common in men. There are over 120 types of brain tumors. The most common malignant tumors are glioblastomas, astrocytomas that can grow anywhere in the brain, spinal cord or cerebrum and meningiomas that develop beneath the skull in the protective covering of the brain.
Symptoms include headaches, short term memory loss, changes in speech, taste or smell, eyelid drooping, difficulty with balance or uncontrollable movements or personality changes.
New Choices for Colon Cancer Patients
Riley Powell taught high school English, and spent her summers training horses at a nearby dude ranch. When she noticed blood in her stool, she thought it was hemorrhoids, from spending so many hours on horseback. But when it persisted, she saw her doctor. At age 34, she was diagnosed with colon/rectal cancer, and was advised to have surgery and a colostomy. Powell opted to travel out of the country for non-invasive treatment that would eliminate the need for a colostomy bag. Powell was one of nearly a million Americans seeking alternative treatment outside the US last year.
Over a hundred thousand Americans will be diagnosed with colon/rectal cancer this year, and half of them will die of the disease. This is the fourth most common cancer in the US, and usually strikes older Americans. There is no known cause, and early colorectal cancer often has no symptoms.
When symptoms do develop, they include blood in the stool, diarrhea or constipation, narrow stools, gas and cramping, fatigue, weight loss and nausea or vomiting.
New Treatments For Cervical Cancer
A forensic researcher, Lindy Hess was 32 when she was diagnosed with cervical cancer in 2005. Hess used her investigative techniques to determine what treatment would work for her. And, like half a million other Americans, she traveled outside the country for a natural approach to cancer care. More than 13,000 people leave the US every day to get medical treatment, and most of them travel to Mexico, Germany and the Philippines.
Cervical cancer begins in the cervix, the opening at the lower part of the uterus. Cervical cancer is the 3rd most common cancer among women in the US. This slow growing cancer often begins with precancerous cells called dysplasia, which can be detected by a pap smear. If not treated, it can spread to the bladder, intestines, lungs and liver.
According to the National Cancer Institute, 12,200 US women were diagnosed with cervical cancer in 2010, and 4,210 died of the disease. The 5 year survival rate if discovered and treated early is 90.9%, but once it spreads, survival drops to 18.7%.
Hess had no symptoms, but a routine Pap smear found cancer cells on her cervix. More advanced cervical cancer may cause back, leg or pelvic pain, bone fractures, fatigue, heavy bleeding, leaking urine or feces from the vagina, loss of appetite and weight loss or a single swollen leg.
Prostate Cancer Hyperthermia Cures Without Side Effects
We’ve all heard the stories – men have surgery and radiation for prostate cancer and end up incontinent and impotent for the rest of their lives. Anyone who does research learns that even seed radiation and HiFu treatments that don’t immediately cause side effects eventually cause these problems in nearly every single case. And surgery always carries its own risk. Is it any wonder men look for alternatives to losing their sexual ability!
St. George Hospital in Bad Aibling has been offering trans-urethral hyperthermia for over two decades. This treatment is painless and effective – St. George claims an 89.9% total cure rate. The best part – there are absolutely no side effects.
Hyperthermia kills cancer cells with heat. The blood supply to cancer cells is different that the blood supply to normal cells, and they are more heat sensitive. Hyperthermia to the prostate interrupts the circulation to the cancer cells, forcing them to either die or preventing them from dividing further.
Saving Breasts, Saving Lives
NATURAL BREAST CANCER TREATMENT OPTIONS
Cora Wallace was 37 when she discovered a lump in her right breast. She was newly divorced, raising two children, and was scared to death. Before she called her doctor, Wallace started researching breast cancer options on the internet. Over half of the 750,000 Americans who travel overseas for medical treatment find clinics through the web.
“I didn’t tell anyone,” Wallace said. “I wanted to do my own research and form my own opinions on the best course of treatment before my doctor and my family pushed me into treatment they thought was best. I had two friends who went through mastectomies, and I watched them go through chemotherapy. I did not want to follow in those footsteps if there was another option.”
Breast lumps that are soft, smooth, round and movable are likely benign. A hard, oddly shaped lump that feels firmly attached is usually cancer. By the time Wallace found her lump, it had probably been there for several years.
The most common cancer in women, breast cancer forms in the lining of the milk ducts, called ductal carcinoma, or in the lobes in the breast, called lobular carcinoma. It can also produce lumps in the armpit and lymph nodes around the breast. Some types of breast cancer are more aggressive than others.
Successful New Lymphoma Treatment
Larry Conrad went in for his annual physical on his 50th birthday. During his exam, his doctor found swollen lymph nodes in his armpits and groin. Conrad had a cough and said he’d lost weight because he ‘felt full all the time’. His doctor ordered a series of tests, and Conrad was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, the most common type. He rejected the standard chemotherapy protocol, and, like over half a million other Americans, traveled outside the US for cancer treatment.
Lymphoma is a cancer of the blood system that develops in the lymphatic system. Lymph is a colorless, watery fluid that carries white blood cells and protects against infection and tumor growth.
Lymphoma symptoms include swollen, painless nodes in the neck, groin or armpit, unexplained weight loss, soaking night sweats, fevers, coughing, chest pain or trouble breathing, fatigue, and pain, swelling or a feeling of fullness in the abdomen.
According to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, there are currently 628,415 people living with Hodgkin’s in the US, and there will be 19,230 deaths from lymphoma this year.
Hodgkin’s lymphoma is found in lymph tissue in the neck, spleen, liver. Hodgkin’s lymphoma is characterized by the presence of Reed-Sternberg cells – large cancerous cells in the lymphatic tissue. Lymphomas can spread through lymph tissue and vessels and through the blood to other lymph nodes, lungs and liver. Yet this is the most curable form of lymphoma.
Uterine Cancer Treatments
Regina Baldwin was 57 and post-menopausal when she started spotting and experiencing pain during intercourse. She was shocked when her gynecologist told her she had endometrial cancer. And she shocked her family when she announced that she was going to a treatment center in Germany.
An aerobics instructor and avid jogger, Baldwin maintained a healthy weight, had never taken estrogen or Tamoxifen or had radiation to the pelvis. She had 3 children, and her periods had always been normal, so she had none of the risk factors associated with endometrial cancer.
Endometrial cancer is the most common cancer of the female reproductive system. Ninety-five per cent of uterine cancers, like Baldwin’s, develop in the lining of the uterus. Sarcomas that develop in the muscle of the uterus are very rare. In 2010, there were 43,470 new cases in the USA, most in women over 55. There were 7,950 deaths due to endometrial cancer in that same year.
The uterus is pear shaped and located in the pelvis between the bladder and rectum. During childbearing years, the uterine lining grows thicker each month to prepare for pregnancy. When pregnancy does not occur, the thick bloody lining is shed through the vagina. This cycle occurs regularly until menopause.
Vitamn C and Cancer
BY DR. GARCIA AND DR. PEREZ, BIOSCIENCE RESEARCH INSTITUTE
Question: Many clinics give Vitamin C by IV. Have there been any studies to show how this treatment can benefit cancer patients ?
Answered by Dr. Eduardo Ariel Perez Carbajal and Dr. Juan Manuel Garcia DeLeon Buenfil - BioScience Research Institute, Tijuana, Mexico.
A number of case-control studies have investigated the role of vitamin C in cancer prevention. Most have shown that higher intakes of vitamin C are associated with decreased incidence of cancers of the mouth, throat and vocal chords, esophagus, stomach, colon-rectum and lung. Because the possibility of bias is greater in case-control studies, prospective studies are generally given more weight in the evaluation of the effect of nutrient intake on disease.
In general, prospective studies in which the lowest intake group consumed more than 86 mg of vitamin C daily have not found significant cancer risk reductions found them in people consuming at least 80 to 110 mg of vitamin C daily.
One study of 870 men over a period of 25 years found that those who consumed more than 83 mg of vitamin C daily had a striking 64% reduction in lung cancer compared with those who consumed less that 63 mg per day.
