What is Kidney Cancer

Kidney cancer, also known as renal cell carcinoma, is a type of cancer that starts in the cells of the kidney. The kidneys are two bean-shaped organs located in the lower back, one on each side of the spine. They are responsible for filtering waste products from the blood and producing urine.

Kidney cancer occurs when cells in the kidney grow and divide uncontrollably, forming a mass or tumor. This tumor can interfere with the normal functioning of the kidney, and in some cases, may spread to other parts of the body.

Causes and Symptoms of Brain Cancer to Keep an Eye on

There are two common types of kidney cancer, Renal Cell Carcinoma (RCC) and Urothelial Cell Carcinoma (UCC). The former is the most widely known type, which accounts for about 80% of all kidney cancers. Most of the kidney cancer treatments are similar for both types. This cancer is one of the 10 most common cancers in the world. It affects both men and women, mostly over the age of 45.

In the past two decades, the rate of kidney cancer has been on the rise. The reason is unclear but probably lies in better diagnostics techniques.

Types of Kidney Cancer

Although typically brain cancer is best treated with conventional cancer medicine such as surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, it is entirely possible and even recommendable to carry out brain cancer’s natural treatment alongside allopathic therapy course. Depending on the stage, the severity of symptoms and patient’s individual characteristics, experts from EuroMed Foundation will develop a special treatment course taking into account all aspects of each particular case. This is done in order to not only combat the disease but to use holistic means to eliminate its root cause, significantly reduce the chance of recurrent cancer, nourish the body during the physically demanding therapy course and rejuvenate both body and spirit, all at once.

Kidney Cancer Risk Factors

  • Genes (family history of kidney cancer)
  • Regular smoking
  • High blood pressure
  • Excess weight (obesity)
  • Lengthy trichloroethylene exposure
  • Radiation exposure
  • Thyroid cancer
  • Diabetes
  • Hysterectomy

Regular Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy as a Treatment for Brain Cancer

Another effective way of treating and alleviating the symptoms of brain cancer is to carry out regular hyperbaric oxygen therapy. The therapy is particularly effective when it comes to reversing the effects caused by the cancer treatment drugs, improving motor and cognitive skills as well as creating new blood vessels. It’s a popular way to reduce the effects of neural diseases by boosting oxygen circulation in the patient’s brain.

Symptoms of Kidney Cancer

Similar to many other types of cancer, early stages of RCC and UCC can develop without any symptoms. Kidneys provide a tumor sufficient space to grow before it starts producing symptoms.

In most cases, the cancer is diagnosed at the early stages if the patient undergoes screenings for other conditions so the disease is discovered accidentally. The most common symptoms of later stages of kidney cancer are:

  • Blood in urine
  • Dragging lower back pain
  • Lump in the stomach or back area
  • Anemia
  • Fatigue
  • Weight loss

Most of the above symptoms can also be an indication of other kidney-related diseases. While they shouldn’t cause panic, discovering one or several of them warrants scheduling a doctor’s appointment.

Diagnosing Kidney Cancer

To diagnose kidney cancer, the doctor will do some or all of the following:

  • Regular physical
  • Medical history examination
  • Blood test
  • Urine test
  • X-ray
  • CT scan
  • Biopsy
  • MRI
  • Ultrasound
  • PET scan

Once the kidney cancer is diagnosed, a patient will most likely face the following conventional treatments:

  • Surgery
  • Ablation
  • Radiation therapy
  • Chemotherapy
  • Immunotherapy

All invasive therapies cause certain side effects, reducing the quality of patient’s life for the duration of the treatment.

Alternative Kidney Cancer Treatments

Alternative kidney cancer treatments have minimal side effects, compared to conventional treatments. They are focused on stimulating the patient’s immune system to help it fight cancer on its own. Some of these treatments include:

  • Homeopathy, we prepare a remedy from your pathology slides, that we use to treat you with.
  • IPT: Insulin Potentiated Therapy, to kills cancer cells directly
  • Ozone, because cancer does not like oxygen
  • Hyperthermia, because cancer does poorly with heat
  • Exercise, to increase lung function and oxygenation
  • Diet, to make your chemical terrain inhospitable for cancer
  • Massage
  • Meditation
  • High dose IV Vitamin C for it’s oxidative properties
  • IV therapies to strengthen immune function
  • Acupuncture

Common Questions

What is alternative or integrative cancer treatment?

At EuroMed Foundation, alternative or integrative cancer treatment is an overarching term we use to describe the many complementary therapies we employ to kill cancer cells and support your body’s ability to heal itself. Licensed integrative cancer medicine specialists oversee all of our treatments, which have been shown to benefit overall health and well-being while treating the malignancy.

What are my treatment options?

Our treatments target cancer cells with low-dose chemotherapy while strengthening your health and immune system. We offer the George Protocol, which involves a homeopathic immune modulator, and numerous other complementary therapies as part of a customized treatment plan that targets your precise condition. We believe combining many positive treatments creates the best results.

Is alternative or integrative cancer treatment safe?

Our alternative or integrative cancer therapies are much safer than traditional treatments such as full-dose chemotherapy and radiation because the body is exposed to much less toxicity. Licensed physicians who hold themselves to the highest medical and ethical standards perform all treatments. They are committed to improving the well-being and the life of every patient who visits EuroMed Foundation.

Is alternative or integrative treatment as effective as traditional treatment?

Many of our patients turn to us after months or years of unsuccessfully fighting cancer using traditional treatments. For many patients, alternative or integrative therapies provide effective treatments to fight off their disease.

Is alternative cancer treatment covered by insurance?

Whether your treatment is covered by your insurance provider depends on your selected therapy and your coverage plan. Our staff can help you navigate the sometimes complicated intricacies of your plan to determine whether you might qualify for coverage.

Are there alternative therapies I can follow at home?

Yes. We help patients make lifestyle changes, including nutrition and exercise, that boost the immune system. We also introduce ways to help patients relieve their minds. Many side effects of cancer – such as fatigue, nausea, sleep problems, stress, and pain – can be alleviated through changes in diet, nutritional supplements, basic relaxation techniques, or a combination of these. The EuroMed Foundation team considers our patients as family and we give them specific strategies to improve their health and overcome cancer.

Am I a Good Candidate for Alternative Cancer Treatment?

Most patients who contact us will respond well to our therapies. That includes many who have already undergone conventional chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and/or surgery. Those treatments typically suppress the function of your immune system, which needs to be strengthened and retrained for effective long-term success of alternative treatments.

In certain cases a patient’s cancer is too advanced or doesn’t respond to our therapy. In those situations we usually refer that patient to another cancer center for treatment that is better suited to them. Our doctors will evaluate your condition and find a treatment path that is customized for you.
