Even as cancer researchers investigate alternative approaches to treatment, traditional cancer treatment methods, such as chemotherapy and radiation therapy, remain the primary method used by doctors throughout the U.S. to fight the disease. Holistic cancer treatment, in which the health of the whole body is the focus, remains an alternative.
Unfortunately, traditional cancer treatment has some severe drawbacks. For starters, as most people know, the side effects of aggressive chemotherapy can be devastating. As the old saying goes, “the treatment is worse than the disease.” Chemotherapy bombards an already weakened body with toxic drugs and, in some cases, radiation. The compromised immune system is sent reeling and the patient struggles with nausea, hair loss, and fatigue. The quality of the patient’s life spirals down. Even worse, a 2007 study concluded that even newer forms of radiation can still increase the risk of getting heart disease.
Because of traditional cancer treatment’s downside, more and more patients diagnosed with various forms of cancer are seeking alternative cancer treatments.
The George Protocol we use at EuroMed Foundation is a combination of complementary therapies that includes a targeted form of low-dose chemotherapy called insulin potentiation therapy (IPT). Our patients have far fewer side effects and, because our holistic treatment approach focuses on boosting the patient’s immune system through detoxification, good nutrition, and other methods, the quality of life is better than for patients undergoing traditional cancer treatment.
