What Integrative & Alternative Cancer Treatment Options Exist?, North Hempstead, New York

If you've received a cancer diagnosis, you face many difficult decisions about how to manage your condition. While modern oncology offers solutions that are designed to cure your cancer or relieve its effects, some patients find that these options’ side effects are too costly, or that these options don't address enough of their concerns. If you feel similarly, you may benefit from integrative and alternative treatments like the following.

Integrative and Alternative Cancer Treatments

Insulin Potentiation Therapy

This treatment uses very low doses of the same drugs used in chemotherapy. However, instead of flooding your body with these chemicals and inducing severe side effects, insulin potentiation therapy (IPT) uses insulin to help the chemotherapy drugs target cancer cells. Tumors use insulin and insulin-like substances to stimulate their growth, and cancer cells have more insulin receptors than healthy cells; as a result, more insulin binds to these cells, delivering the treatment where it's needed most.

Nutritional Therapy

cancerA healthier diet with purified water can play an essential role in boosting your body's immune system and natural healing powers. Nutrients can also be delivered through intravenous therapy. With the help of a cancer treatment specialist, you can design a healthy, organic diet to supplement your cancer treatment.

Chelation Therapy

To filter toxins from your body, you need to introduce a substance to which those harmful chemicals will bind. EDTA, a chelating agent (a substance that can grab and cling to other molecules), can be used for this purpose, removing ionic metallic materials and flushing them from your system. This treatment is an option for a wide range of severe health conditions, including cardiovascular disease and cancer.
