Cancer

In managing cancer patients, we emphasize treatment techniques that enable the body to heal itself. 

Cancer continues to be one of our most challenging health problems. The center's approach to preventing and treating cancer does not accept conventional treatment as a given, but encourages everyone to explore what is known and what is not known before making decisions about treatment. Rather than focus on surgery, radiation and chemotherapy, we suggest changes in the habits that led to the development of the cancer in the first place. These may be utilized with conventional treatment, or, in some cases, instead of it.

Treatment options at the Schachter Center include detoxification, dietary protocols, and nutritional supplements that enhance and support the immune system and the healing process.  Oral supplements include: vitamins, minerals, enzymes, herbs, phytonutrients, and other nutritional supplements.  Intravenous hydrogen peroxide and/or intravenous infusions of high doses of vitamin C are often recommended.  We frequently recommend other natural substances that appear to have some anti-cancer properties, for certain patients.  

Extensive testing may be done to evaluate nutritional status (direct or functional vitamin tests, serum coenzyme Q10, red blood cell minerals), heavy metal toxicity (provoked urine tests for mercury, lead, and others), the status of the liverís detoxification mechanisms, hormone status (DHEA levels, basal temperatures for thyroid function, and others) and immune status (Natural Killer Cell functional activity). Of course, standard tests such as a complete blood count, liver chemistry tests, and blood cancer markers are routinely ordered, especially if they havenít been done recently. 

We also utilize the innovative, non-toxic, biological compounds developed by the late Dr. Mirko Beljanski, and have recently added therapies utilizing vitamin D, vitamin K2, Salvestrols, balancing lipids, the use of iodine and important  dietary changes. The value of exercise is also stressed. 

Mind-body therapies are considered an essential part of our holistic treatment protocol.  Many patients find that relieving stress with various relaxation therapies quite helpful, contributing to healing on a deeper level. They enable the patient to more effectively harness all of his/her energy towards healing when combined with our total approach to cancer. One such therapy, Reiki, is available at our center with Sandra M. Davis, RM, IARP Our acupuncturist, Bob Connolly, also works with many cancer patients to help reduce pain and stimulate enhanced healing,
