Rethinking Radiation: Benefits of Shorter-Course Therapy

Learn about the benefits of shorter course therapyResearch 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.

    Do you know of anything that can help heal the skin due to radiation? My daughter had chemo, surgery, and radiation and they have mangled her body. They now tell her that she has to have flap surgery where they take her abdominal muscle and skin from her back to make a new breast. She was told she could get implants but that she would be a constant patient due to infections etc. because her skin is too fragile.

    I am ordering her the alpha lipoic acid and trying to get my hands on some cannabis salve. Her arm was injured during the PET scan by the technician who hit her nerve and now she can’t use her hand and arm to any extent.

    Any help you can give would be helpful.

      Radiation unfortunately causes some irreversible damage to normal wound healing, along with chronic inflammation. There are specific remedies and treatments that often help optimize healing after radiation, but they are specific for each patient’s presentation, including their blood results. They are mostly directed to lower the inflammatory response caused by radiation. We would need to perform an examination and blood analysis to recommend specific treatment for her.
