The percentage of Americans dying from cancer in 2004 was about the same as it was in 1970. You've heard the old adage about cancer: hopefully the cancer won't kill you before the cancer cure does. The grim statistics on survival rates confirm that conventional chemo and radiation are not getting very far with the vast majority of cancers.
Providing an effective holistic cancer treatment is what the EuroMed Foundation is about.

The Drawbacks of Traditional Cancer Treatment
In conventional cancer treatments, the body is bombarded with a large dose of toxicity – drugs and often radiation. This method harms the immune system, which makes it difficult to truly deliver a cancer cure. People struggle with the nausea and go bald from the toxicity of the drugs; this doesn't improve the quality of life much either.
In 1986, the McGill Cancer Center scientists surveyed 118 oncologists who specialized in lung cancer. They were asked if they would take chemo if they developed lung cancer. Three-quarters replied they would not.
It has long been acknowledged that the type of radiation used in the 1960s and 1970s elevated women's risk of subsequent cardiovascular disease. So many women were dying of the long-term adverse effects that it more or less counterbalanced any survival benefit from the treatment itself.
However, it is now said the newer forms of radiation minimize this sort of heart damage. To those of us who work with alternative medicine for cancer treatment, this did not ring true. Sure enough, a large and prolonged study by the Netherlands Cancer Institute showed that modern radiation also increases the risk of heart disease in women who receive it following surgery for breast cancer. Study results were published March 7, 2007, in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute (JNCI).
The Politics of Treatment
Why is conventional chemotherapy still pushed by the vast majority of oncologists? In the book, Questioning Chemotherapy, Moss explained that traditional oncologists are in a very difficult position because they've been trained to give these drugs. And they've devoted many years to reaching a very high level of expertise in the knowledge of poisonous, deadly compounds. They want to help the cancer patient, yet the tools they've been given don't work, he said.
From expert and author Cynthia Foster, MD:
"Cytotoxic chemotherapy kills cancer cells by way of a certain mechanism called "First Order Kinetics." This simply means that the drug does not kill a constant number of cells, but a constant proportion of cells. So, for example, a certain drug will kill 1/2 of all the cancer cells, then 1/2 of what is left, and then 1/2 of that, and so on. So, we can see that not every cancer cell necessarily is going to be killed. This fact is well known by oncologists.
"Now, how can cancer patients possibly fight even a few cancer cells when their immune systems have been disabled and this is yet another stress on the body, and they're bleeding because they have hardly any platelets left from the toxic effects of the chemotherapy? This is usually why, when chemotherapy is stopped, the cancer grows again and gets out of control."
The Immune System - The First Line of Defense
Because cancer is essentially a failure of the immune system, it makes no sense to administer a cancer cure that further damages the immune system. In Arizona, the doctors at the EuroMed Foundation kill cancer and bolster the immune system at the same time by blending conventional medicine with alternative medicine. We combine the best of both worlds for a better outcome through alternative cancer treatment.
We don't rely on chemo to do the entire job of killing cancer cells. We use a number of complementary therapies to diminish cancer. For example, Poly-MVA® is highly selective for malignant tissue. It influences oxygen, water, and electrical inputs to the malignancy. It behaves like a chemotherapeutic agent, but is not destructive. In June of 2008, Poly-MVA® became the first dietary supplement to be cleared by the FDA for use in a cancer study. It is likely this study will lead to the use of Poly-MVA® in conventional cancer treatments.
A Safer Chemotherapy
The treatment does not have to be worse than the disease. We use a low dose, targeted chemotherapy – about one-tenth the amount of standard chemotherapy. We make use of the body's own hormone, insulin, to carry cytotoxic drugs directly into the cancer cell. This is called IPT – Insulin Potentiation Therapy. Because it is so effective at delivering the drugs just to the cancer cells, there is little left over to cause a toxic reaction within healthy cells. In 60 years, there has never been a reported death from IPT.
Patients who undergo holistic cancer treatment with IPT and complementary therapies have far fewer side effects. In fact, you can read real patient stories to see what they have to say.
All of us have cancer cells in us. When the immune system is strong, it stays on top of the errant cells. When the immune system is weak, cancer grows. At the EuroMed Foundation, we know how to kill cancer without killing the immune system. Indeed, many of our patients finish treatment with a much stronger immune system than they had when they started.
