Receiving a prostate cancer diagnosis can be scary. One minute you’re cancer-free - the next, a whirlwind of information and medical jargon are thrown at you at rapid speed and critical decisions need to be made quickly. For you and your loved ones, all of this can be overwhelming and most people jump right into receiving aggressive treatments without taking a step back, a pause, to examine their health in a more root-cause, holistic way.
Integrative Oncology at Best Naturopathic Medicine, blends the knowledge of conventional cancer care with powerful, yet safe naturopathic treatments that help you in your fight against prostate cancer.
Prostate cancer usually does not have a singular cause. It is most often a combination of genetic influences, hormonal and blood sugar imbalances, environmental toxin exposure and increasing levels of inflammation in the prostate that lead to cancer.
Inflammation is caused by years or decades of improper diet, imbalanced gastrointestinal health, alcohol and smoking, and essentially is a fire inside the body that is the precursor to almost every chronic disease, including cancer. Inflammation lurks behind the scenes for years and unfortunately is rarely discussed with patients by doctors until it has manifested in a disease!
The Naturopathic Doctors at Best Naturopathic Medicine are experts in getting to know your case in detail and helping you to discover the true root causes of your condition. Armed with this information, an individualized, targeted treatment plan is constructed JUST for you that reduces inflammation, improves the health of your hormone and immune system, targets cancer cells and moves you towards better health.
Integrative oncologists work with you as a team to remove the influences that have caused things to get out of balance in your body in the first place. A customized nutritional and lifestyle plan is created for you that helps to eliminate toxic influences, reduce inflammation and rebalance your blood sugar and hormone levels.
Guided by the results of comprehensive, specialized functional lab tests and more than a decade of experience in treating men with prostate cancer, we recommend an individualized protocol of high-quality nutritional supplements, including vitamins, minerals and herbal medicine.
Another very powerful modality that has been shown to be helpful against multiple different forms of cancer, including prostate cancer, is High Dose Intravenous Vitamin C (IVC) Therapy. High Dose Intravenous Vitamin C (IVC) Therapy helps stop the growth of cancer, can dramatically improve quality of life and extend lifespan even in advanced forms of cancer. Research has demonstrated that there is a correlation between High-Dose IVC treatments and reduced tumor growth, as well as with decreased levels of PSA.
When combined with the therapies discussed previously, the Integrative Oncology team at Best Naturopathic Medicine have seen remarkable, positive changes in prostate cancer and the overall health of our patients when administering High-Dose IVC infusions. One of the benefits of IVC is that when it is administered intravenously, it bypasses the gastrointestinal tract completely and side effects that oral vitamin C causes, like GI upset or diarrhea, are mitigated. When comparing the absorption of oral and IV vitamin C, IV vitamin C is FAR superior in that not only can more vitamin C be tolerated at any one given time, but it can raise serum levels of vitamin C some 350-400 times higher than oral vitamin C!
Many patients who come to see us have been or are currently undergoing conventional therapies for cancer, including chemotherapy and radiation. While these methods may be helpful in eradicating cancer, they also often don’t discriminate between healthy and cancerous cells. When healthy cells die, they can leave you feeling terrible. The most common reported side effects are fatigue and brain fog. Other seldom discussed effects are depletion of the immune system, where white blood cell numbers decline, destruction of the gut lining, causing intestinal permeability (leaky gut) leading to gastrointestinal problems.
Integrative Oncology truly shines, providing you with the most important clinically proven vitamins, amino acids, minerals, herbal medicines and intravenous nutritional infusions to get your energy boosted, your brain back on line again and help to repair the gut lining, where most human disease begins!
