Cancer is an opportunity to create incredible positive change in your life and in the lives of those around you. As life shattering as it may be to receive a cancer diagnosis, it is truly a “present”, the ultimate nudge that pushes you to live and love in the moment. The Cancer-Vive philosophy is based on two words, living and surviving two important daily goals of a cancer diagnosis.
Guidance on your journey
Naturopathic medicine can offer many tools to help support you through this journey. Whether you are focusing on prevention or have a recently new diagnosis, or perhaps have been dealing with the diagnosis for a while. There is hope! We are the experts to help educate you in all aspects of your care both conventional and alternative, our treatments can be easily implemented alone for those with no conventional care options or in conjunction with conventional cancer care (chemotherapy and radiation)
Goals of care are different for each patient, firstly you are fully assessed on an individual basis to see the state of your present health and then together we decide your goals. Most important are improving quality of life and enhancing any conventional care you may be receiving (reducing side effects and optimizing chemo and radiation). If you are not offered conventional care or are choosing to not have conventional care we offer you options.
Always seek the advice of a skilled naturopathic doctor with expertise in cancer care. Time is of the essence in your care, utmost care and caution must be taken when combining natural therapies with conventional care. We use up to date pre-clinical, clinical and treatments with 100+ years of use.
Some of our Cancer-Vive Treatment Tools:
In Europe, Mistletoe therapy is the most widely researched and used natural treatment for cancer. It is a staple therapy in the Cancer-vive Program.
The Use of Mistletoe dates back to Hippocrates, it then became popularized by Anthroposophycal doctor Rudolf Steiner who assessed the Plant according to the Doctrine of Signatures (how a plant acts in nature is how it works in the human body to treat disease) realized that Mistletoe acted much like cancer, it is a growth that survives on a host and thrives on its sap supply and is only alive as long as the host is alive. This was the beginning of the use of Mistletoe for cancer and since 1916 a preparation of Mistletoe was successfully used with Cancer patients, millions of doses have been given and it has been validated by hundreds of medical trials. Personal use in practice shows an excellent therapeutic effect.
Mistletoe has various effects in the human body, it enhances the immune system, is used as a prophylaxis of recurrence of tumor after surgery, improves quality of life during chemotherapy and radiation, can improve responses to conventional treatments and much more.
We have the knowledge of how to succinctly prescribe you the supplements you need to achieve your cancer care and prevention goals. There are so many options, however certain nutrients at therapeutic doses are best used in certain cancers. We strategically select and prescribe those nutrients for your best cancer care.
Some goals of cancer supplementation include:
Contact us today to start your Cancer-Vive Plan.
Our Ketocan Plan is designed respecting the following principles:
Our Ketocan Plan is typically a High Fat, with healthy Protein and Low Carbohydrates. Depending on your state of health you may be recommended to do periods of intermittent fasting to speed up the process. Our Ketocan Plan is done in combination with finding out your personal food allergies and following the principles listed above.
The KetoCan Plan for Cancer should always be done under guided supervision as it is a diet that if not monitored properly may have adverse effects. We monitor our patients closely, on most visits, a urine analysis is done to see how the patient is doing and if they are in ketosis. Lab tests are also done periodically.
In brain and neurological tumors this dietary regime also helps to reduce seizures effectively as it does for epilepsy.We have noted in practice excellent responses with the diet and a added benefit is the ability to reduce the dosage of many of the other complementary therapies because the body simply responds better to all therapies while on this plan.
Our Specialized nutritionist helps to keep you on track as Doctor Marisol decides whether you are a candidate for this plan and monitors you through the process.
Research shows Intravenous Vitamin C:
IVC increases the effectiveness of chemotherapy/radiation treatments and reduces the need for multiple treatments, which can become less effective and more disabling over time. Chemotherapy combined with IVC more efficiently slows cancer progression by reducing tumor size and decreasing tumor growth rate, as opposed to chemotherapy alone. IVC also decreases chemo side effects.
As part of our cancer prevention protocol, patients are regularly recommended to adopt High Dose Intravenous Vitamin C as part of their Cancer-vive health practice.
Oral versus Intravenous Vitamin C Therapy
To augment your Intravenous Vitamin C therapy, you will be prescribed certain supplements including oral Vitamin C and Vitamin E. Oral Vitamin C alone cannot achieve the same anti-cancer response as IVC due to concentration. The maximal recommended dosage of oral Vitamin C is 10,000 mg per day – past this osmotic diarrhea occurs. Intravenous cancer dosages reach and surpass 100,000 mg of Vitamin C per treatment.
