INTEGRATIVE ONCOLOGY

oncologia_integrativa-1A new concept that combines the means of conventional medicine with those of biological medicine, to achieve greater effectiveness in treatments, we use compatible systems in an integrated manner to optimize the result regarding prevention, cure, palliative care, and promote healthy habits for life. This option of combining the best of both, gives the patient a better quality of life, it gives a greater sense of confidence and support and often produces better results against the disease.

This helps the side effects of conventional treatments, both physical and emotional to decrease significantly if actions are carried out in parallel with a process of detox program with antioxidants and vitamins to favor the elimination of chemicals. Taking care and ensuring the proper functioning of the immune system, plus an adjustment in diet and emotional support are equally decisive for a complete integrated treatment. The key of integrative medicine is the selection and application of therapies chosen for each patient, applied in an ethical, professional and humane manner. Which, in addition, raises the quality of medicine and the benefits for the patient.

Medicine is only one and regardless of the field from which you are working, the priority is that each patient receives what is best for their recovery.

This causes the side effects of both physical conventional treatments and emotional decline significantly if, in parallel actions shade the process as a detox programmed with antioxidants and vitamins to promote the elimination of chemicals, care for and ensure the smooth operation performed immune system, plus an adjustment in diet and emotional support are equally decisive for a complete treatment integrated within the Integrative Oncology. The key integrative medicine is in the selection and application of therapies chosen for each patient, and conducted in an ethical, professional and humane manner, which also managed to raise the quality of medicine and patient benefits.

Treatment Phases

Integrative oncology consists of four main phases:

1. Evaluation Phase: Review of clinical history by the medical director, where the greatest amount of information you have on hand will be collected and if necessary, some blood tests will be taken to determine the current status of patient; these tests give us information hemodynamic, metabolic and inflammatory aspect of tissues. Other studies aimed at understanding the current state of the immune system and the system of oxidation, such as tumor necrosis factor, count circulating tumor cells (CTC), regulatory T cells, glutathione, and sensitivity to some natural products that we could use in their benefit should be highly sensitive to its application, such as vitamin C, tonsillar (Vit B 17), and even an onco-test provide information regarding sensitivity to certain chemotherapeutic agents that could be used in certain cases at low doses with IPT technique (potentiation therapy Insulin). It also will review and complete nutritional assessment and if necessary an additional assessment by Internal Medicine.

2. Conditioning Phase: This phase is where nutritional deficiencies if any, are corrected by an assessment by medical critical if you need pain control, and processes of detoxification and pre-activation of the immune system drains. (Detox, decreased activation blocking cells of the immune system, reduction of circulating tumor burden, improve oxidative stress). At this stage different therapies like Chelation therapy is applied to remove heavy metals, ozone therapy to reduce inflammation and revitalize the tissues, as well as some anti-oxidant therapies such as vitamin C in megadoses which in turn plays an important role as anti-cancer.

This phase may also be used if necessary the application of low doses of chemotherapy using insulin as a biological response modifier, which is known as therapy directed potentiation of insulin. (IPTLD). It is an innovative cancer treatment regimen that allows the use of chemotherapy drugs selected according to the accepted oncological practice, these drugs are administered in doses much lower than it is accepted as standard doses.

3. Activation of Immune System Phase: Work done in conjunction with hematology and immunology laboratory where all study and immunotherapy protocols are prepared for each patient. This is performed with the activation and proliferation of cells of the immune system involved in the destruction of tumors, these processes are carried out “in vitro” and are subsequently applied to the patient, patients do not present side effects or events clinical rejection, since it is its “own cell”. This phase is the most important program because it is where is held cellular immunotherapy, dendritic cells, activated lymphocytes quote toxic, natural killer lymphocytes and autologous cocktail cytokines auto-activate the immune system. patient’s own cells are taken, a complex in vitro activation process is performed in the laboratory and again inject the patient.

4. Maintenance Phase: In this phase patients continue activating the immune system in a targeted manner with autologous cytosine (Products Leukocyte autologous or anti-cancer vaccines based on the type of cancer) and maintaining the balance of cell proliferation, with natural agents that demonstrated “in vitro “have an effect on the destruction of circulating malignant cells.
