Alternative Cancer Treatment
The doctors at Arizona’s EuroMed Foundation provide new and innovative cancer treatments that target and kill cancer cells while simultaneously restoring your body’s best defense against the return of cancer – your own immune system.
Each person responds differently to cancer and the EuroMed specialists customize your treatment accordingly. Unlike conventional cancer treatments, which tend to take a one-size-fits-all approach, the doctors at EuroMed determine which medications and complementary therapies will work best for you. If you are considering integrative cancer treatment, we recommend you request your free personal orientation online to find out more about our unique approach. One of our doctors will be happy to answer all of your questions in person or you can call us at (602) 404-0400.
Some of the more common cancers we treat are listed below. However there are many others. Please contact us regarding your particular condition, to determine if you are a candidate for treatment at EuroMed Foundation.
Cancers We Treat:
What Makes EuroMed Unique
Our holistic approach to alternative treatments for cancer is what sets our Arizona cancer center apart. Insulin potentiation therapy (IPT) is at the heart of our treatment, but we believe this singular approach is not enough on its own. Years of experience using a holistic cancer treatment model clearly demonstrated that combining other effective therapies with IPT enhanced the treatment without exposing the body to additional toxic agents.
Dr. Frank George helped pioneer the use of insulin to potentiate (enhance the effectiveness) of another substance. Using insulin to amplify chemotherapy’s effects enables us to use much lower doses which, in turn, greatly limits the side effects and immune suppression that can be debilitating during conventional chemotherapy treatments. Another significant advantage is, because of the very low doses, several chemotherapy drugs can be combined into each treatment. We have found that there is synergy between the drugs that makes them more effective as a group, compared to using them one at a time. These combinations would otherwise be too toxic at conventional doses, which gives IPT a great advantage.
Something that distinguishes cancer alternative treatment at EuroMed Foundation is that it’s customized for each patient. Two patients, the same age, with the same type of cancer, may respond differently to the same combination of treatment therapies. Our doctors focus on 3 goals: 1) alternative low-dose chemotherapy treatment that aggressively targets cancer cells while 2) simultaneously boosting your immune system and 3) changing your chemical terrain to be inhospitable for the cancer, through diet.
The foundation of alternative treatment for cancer at EuroMed is insulin potentiated therapy, or IPT. Also called very low-dose chemotherapy, IPT uses about a tenth the amount of drugs used in standard chemotherapy. IPT uses breast cancer cells’ appetite for sugar to its advantage, targeting those cells without compromising your body’s healthy cells.
Our holistic approach is unlike standard chemotherapy because EuroMed uses a small fraction of the standard chemotherapy dose and actively supports your immune system throughout your treatment. We do this using complementary therapies our doctors identify that will be helpful in your specific case. By alternating between very low-dose chemotherapy and complementary therapies, we can detoxify the body and boost your liver function.
Other examples of alternative treatment options that might be integrated into your therapy include:
- Heat therapy: Hyperthermia generates heat to create more blood supply to the area. Because cancers have such a high rate of metabolism, when they are warmed up with infrared heat, for example, they over-metabolize themselves to death.
- Ozone therapy: Cancer does poorly in an oxygen rich environment. We use ozone therapy to oxygenate your tissues and create an unfavorable environment for the cancer.
The doctors and medical staff at EuroMed view cancer as a side effect of a weakened immune system, so our treatments are focused on supporting that system. Standard, systemic chemotherapy is based on the opposite philosophy, attacking both healthy and diseased cells in a way that undermines your immune function. IPT targets the cancer cells, which allows us to use a fraction of the drugs that are required in standard chemotherapy. At the same time, we prescribe complementary therapies that include dietary changes and supplements to enhance your immune system’s response. Rather than struggle through some of the worst effects of traditional chemotherapy, our patients become stronger.
Strengthening the Immune System
One of our priorities at EuroMed is boosting your immune system. Ideally, we want you to return home with a stronger immune system than you had before your treatment. Emphasizing complementary therapies, such as antioxidants and tested homeopathic remedies originally developed by Dr. George, enables us to strengthen your immune system. That path may involve chelation, removing heavy metals from your body’s tissue and bones. The relationship between some cancers and the toxicity of heavy metals such as mercury, aluminum, and cadmium has been studied and it’s thought that these metals poison the immune system.
Our team is accomplished in the use of EDTA, DMPS, and DMSA chelation therapies.
Supporting the liver during treatment is another priority because the liver is the primary detoxifying organ of the body. Patients undergoing conventional cancer treatments typically sustain fairly severe liver damage. Some of our alternative cancer treatment patients have told us that the medical techs who performed their PET scans were amazed to see no evidence of liver damage after any kind of chemotherapy.
Nutrition and Environmental Education
At our Arizona cancer center, we educate patients about nutrition and environmental pollution to help them understand what creates a breeding ground for cancer. We empower our patients to remain free of cancer. Our specialists have traveled the world and studied alongside those who are making real advancements in the treatment of cancer; we have established relationships with other alternative cancer treatment specialists. We can refer patients to these doctors, such Dr. Rigdon Lentz in Germany, who can provide treatments only available outside the United States.
Safe and Effective
The growing popularity of new and alternative cancer treatments is based on the effective results achieved. People travel to the EuroMed Foundation from all over the world after thoroughly examining their options. We encourage you to contact us and ask about whatever is on your mind. Many of these concepts are unfamiliar to most of our patients. If you will be traveling from out of town, talk to us about travel support for your transportation and lodging options.
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.
