Research shows that breast cancer patients who underwent alternative radiation therapy — a treatment plan that cut in half the time they received radiation — benefitted from that approach. We encourage rethinking traditional methods of treating cancer at our Arizona cancer center, where we take a holistic approach that emphasizes patient’s overall health as part of the treatment process.
Still, even though studies showing that a shorter course of radiation therapy is just as effective for early stage breast cancer patients as a longer course, many women in the U.S. are still undergoing radiation treatments for longer than necessary, according to a recent analysis of data involving millions of patients.
The benefits of the shorter duration of radiation therapy include more than being effective in treating cancer. It is also less expensive and more convenient for patients, reducing the amount of time away from work and home. It’s unclear why so many patients continue to undergo the longer course of radiation, according to the researchers, but it’s important that patients get this information so they can discuss it with their physicians.
At EuroMed Foundation, we encourage patients to embrace new technology and research that can improve the treatment process. We specialize in combining conventional and alternative therapies in a way that incorporates effective healing practices from around the world. Our mission is to effectively treat cancer while supporting the patient’s immune system, an approach that is supported by a growing body of research into cancer vaccines. New vaccines focus on boosting the body’s immune system to destroy and ward off cancer cells.
Our holistic approach includes:
- Insulin potentiation therapy: This treatment is also called low-dose chemotherapy. It specifically targets cancer cells, unlike conventional chemotherapy, which attacks both healthy and cancerous cells.
- Complementary therapies: Supporting and enhancing the immune system is accomplished by incorporating substances and therapies customized specifically for an individual patient’s needs.
- Diverse medical team: Our specialists practice as a unit, combining the unique knowledge each has to benefit our patients.
The medical establishment can be slow to evolve, even in the face of research showing that alternative methods can benefit patients. EuroMed Foundation is dedicated to pursuing all avenues of treatment.
