Motivating people to get colon cancer screening tests after age 50 is the focus of Colorectal Health Month in March. It’s an excellent message because undergoing a screening test is the best way to detect signs of colon cancer at an early stage. It’s also a good time to point out that holistic lifestyle changes can lower the chances of getting colon cancer. At EuroMed, our holistic approach to colon cancer is part of the alternative treatment path we take for all forms of cancer.
Few people doubt the effectiveness of colon cancer screening. Research from the Harvard School of Public Health shows that regular colonoscopy screenings could prevent 40% of all colorectal cancers. Colon cancer is the second-leading cause of cancer deaths in the U.S.
At EuroMed, we emphasize an approach that gives men and women the power to lower their risk of getting colon cancer by making changes in their diets and lifestyle. That’s because prevention is the best way to lower the number of cancer deaths. A nutritious diet based on fresh, chemical-free foods and reducing daily stress are 2 of the most important steps to take to reduce the chances of getting any type of cancer.
For someone already diagnosed, our alternative colon cancer treatment options include complementary therapies, which compose a significant part of our holistic cancer treatments. Those therapies include:
- A cocktail of vitamins and minerals tailored to specific patient needs that are administered intravenously
- Therapeutic levels of antioxidants
- Homeopathic detox treatments to “sweep” the body of dead viruses, dead white blood cells, and chemical by-products from medicines
- UVB treatments
Ultimately, it’s important to remember that it’s never too late to make positive changes in your lifestyle and diet to improve your overall health.
