Alternative cancer therapies are always popping up in the media. But the fact is few of these have any merit. How do you tell what’s real and what’s not?
Paul Kraus, a twenty-year survivor of mesothelioma, one of the most deadly cancers you can contract, has researched some of the alternative therapies during his fight against mesothelioma and other cancers he has survived.
Here are the top five alternative cancer therapies that have yielded real results.
Brand new ozone therapies can empower white blood cells to fight against cancer. These are not the ozone therapies that you remember. Scientists have changed the way they work.
Traditional ozone therapy only empowered the cancer cells in the same way as white blood cells. These revolutionary ozone therapies are designed to overcome tumor growth.
Studies are still ongoing into exactly how effective they can be.
The concept of meditation is simple. It’s about clearing your mind and relaxing. Meditation is an ancient form of therapy, but today everyone from janitors to corporate CEOs practice it, and for good reason.
Study after study has shown that meditation is beneficial for your mental health. When it comes to cancer, mental health is just as important as physical health.
A patient who’s suffering from anxiety and depression is far less likely to beat cancer.
Vitamin C Therapy
One of the most successful alternative therapies has been vitamin C therapy. The health benefits of vitamin C are simple to grasp. It boosts the immune system and encourages the growth of collagen.
Collagen growth is important to cancer patients because it essentially reinforces the blood vessels, bones, and muscles. In other words, the body becomes more resistant to cancer cells.
This used to be a therapy that doctors dismissed, but new evidence has made them take notice.
One type of anti-cancer therapy has been taken from traditional Chinese medicine. Acupuncture has been incredibly successful at relieving stress and preventing pain caused by mainstream cancer treatments, such as chemotherapy.
Some studies have shown that acupuncture reduces the incidence of vomiting within cancer patients. This is critical because vomiting removes nutrients from the body and makes it weaker, which makes it more vulnerable to cancer.
Imagine a world where cancer vaccines could be given to cancer patients.
Immunotherapy is bringing this alternative treatment closer to reality. Rather than being preventative, this treatment is quickly becoming an active attack against cancer.
The idea behind it is that weakened cancer cells are injected into the body as target practice for white blood cells. Your white blood cells will have everything they need to fight those specific cells, therefore the body could repel your cancer.
Last Word – Is there Any Potential?
These five alternative cancer therapies have already displayed a huge amount of potential in early studies. And some alternative therapy advocates have even tried them.
But more research has to be done before the mainstream medical profession will start to recommend them.
Have you heard of any other alternative cancer treatments?
