A cancer diagnosis can be overwhelming and stressful, and yet it’s a time when many patients want to learn about their diagnosis and gather information about all of their treatment options, including chemotherapy alternatives. Becoming well-informed and taking control of their cancer care can help many patients feel empowered during a challenging chapter in their lives.
The Immunity Therapy Center offers a comprehensive selection of non-chemo cancer treatments. These natural and alternative therapies provide a range of options to support holistic health and well-being when you are fighting cancer.
If you want to understand what treatment alternative to chemotherapy is available and how it works, keep reading. In this article we will take a closer look at 14 of the best natural and holistic therapies available today.
Understanding Alternative Treatment Programs
Before we dive into the details of 14 top natural treatment options for cancer, it’s important to understand how these therapies fit into a patient’s overall treatment plan. An alternative treatment program should not be cookie-cutter or one-size-fits-all. It should always be personalized to fit the specific needs of the patient.
A complete natural treatment regimen typically combines several targeted therapy types to achieve the best results. The therapies are chosen to work together and to closely match the patient’s unique health profile.
Here are the different aspects of your case that the clinicians at the Immunity Therapy Center review when developing your alternative treatment program:
- The kind of cancer you have
- The cancer’s location
- The extent of the cancer’s spread
- Your current health condition
- Your complete medical history
- Contributing genetic factors (family history)
- Previous treatments you’ve received
- Lifestyle factors like activity level and diet
Individualized, Holistic Care
Alternative cancer treatment providers take a holistic view of a patient’s health. This means taking the time to get to know you as a person to better understand your experiences, preferences and needs. We believe that mental, emotional, social and even spiritual well-being are all elements that can impact a cancer patient’s health and wellness.
We have seen that patients who are able to maintain a positive attitude tend to experience better alternative medicine treatment outcomes. For this reason, we value the “care” element of cancer care. We always aim to know and support each patient as an individual. To us, you’re not just a medical chart. We encourage you to be actively involved in your care planning, ask for clarification when you don’t understand something, and express any concerns or needs at any time.
The best alternative treatment providers offer substantial individual attention and adjust treatment plans according to a patient’s evolving needs. At the Immunity Therapy Center, this means you will enjoy daily consultations with your treating physician. You’ll be monitored attentively to ensure your treatment program is working. We routinely adjust the care plan to ensure it remains responsive to your needs and maximally beneficial for your health.
14 Non-Chemo Natural Cancer Treatments
Now that you know the healthcare approach behind alternative cancer treatment, let’s dive into specific natural targeted therapy options.
Here are 14 non-chemo cancer treatments and how they work:
1. Dendritic Cell Based Immunotherapy
This vaccine activates anti-tumor behavior in certain cells within the immune system. Dendritic cell cancer vaccines are often combined with LAK Therapy (Leukocytes Activated by Interleukin) to achieve the most powerful results.
2. Sono Dynamic Therapy
This gentle, non-invasive alternative treatment option takes advantage of the characteristics of ultrasound to fight cancer. Ultrasound can be precisely targeted and easily permeate soft tissues of the body.
Sono Dynamic therapy mixes low-power ultrasound with compounds called sonosensitizers to make the tissue more receptive to the ultrasound treatment. Molecular oxygen is also incorporated into this treatment. Sono Dynamic Therapy is thought to produce a specialized molecule, reactive oxygen species, that reacts with surrounding molecules to inhibit and kill cancer cells.
3. Insulin Potentiation Therapy (IPT)
This therapy is also known as low-dose chemotherapy. Insulin Potentiation Therapy is an adjunct treatment added to certain other therapies to increase their impact. Cancerous cells are thought to contain more receptors for the hormone insulin than non-cancerous cells. IPT’s goal is to stimulate the cancer cells’ insulin receptors to help weaken the cells’ defenses against certain cancer drugs. Because this alternative therapy specially targets cancer cells and leaves healthy cells unaffected, it is a gentle approach with minimal risk of side effects.
Immunotherapy aims to intervene in the body’s immune system to bolster its ability to fight off cancer. This natural treatment technique targets T cells, a special kind of immune system cell. The patient’s T cells are collected and treated to make them more attuned to the threat of cancer cells so that they fight them off when they encounter them within the patient’s body. The activated T cells are returned to the patient through an IV line. This treatment has long-acting anti-cancer effects and is mild on the body.
5. Autologous Anti Cancer Stem Cell Treatment
Healthy stem cells are taken from the patient’s body through a blood draw, then activated with the help of a specialized protein, Interleukin 2, involved in modulating immune cell behavior. Once activated, the stem cells are returned to the patient, where they are better prepared to battle cancer cells in the body.
6. Enzyme Treatment for Cancer Patients
There are a couple types of enzyme therapy used to help cancer patients. Systemic enzyme therapy employs high-dose enzymes to destroy cancer cells and boost immune system function by neutralizing harmful microorganisms. Pancreatic Enzyme Replacement Therapy, or PERT, is a specific type of enzyme treatment that can benefit pancreatic cancer patients. Oral enzyme supplements can enhance nutrition and immune system activity, enabling patients to safely receive other alternative therapies to target the cancer.
7. Peptide Treatment
Also referred to as Regenerative Cell Cancer Therapy, this injection treatment encourages tissue healing and aids the immune system in killing tumor cells. Peptides are short chains of amino acids that can influence immune system function in multiple ways, either stimulating tissue repair or activating defense mechanisms to slow or stop cancer growth.
8. Leukocytes Activated by Interleukin (LAK) Therapy
This treatment is also referred to as Lymphokine Activated Killer Cell (LAK) therapy. LAK uses Interleukin-2, a substance generated by the immune system’s white blood cells that may play a role in boosting the natural defensive capacities of the immune system. LAK therapy is commonly used in combination with Dendritic Cell Therapy to achieve the most powerful outcomes for cancer patients.
9. Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA)
This minimally invasive alternative cancer therapy is also used in arthritis pain treatment. It fuses electrical energy with heat to target pain signals and relieve discomfort. It also heats up targeted tissues to neutralize cancer cells. Radiofrequency ablation therapy starts with imaging to precisely gauge the tumor’s location. The technician inserts a thin needle into the unhealthy tissue in order to guide the administration of high-frequency radio waves to heat the area. Most often RFA therapy is given through the skin, but sometimes it is administered through laparoscopy if needed to properly target the tumor. In that case, a flexible tube is inserted into the body through a small abdominal incision to guide the radio waves.
10. Viral Anti Cancer Vaccine Therapy
The way viral anti-cancer vaccines work is similar to traditional vaccination for infectious diseases. The cancer vaccine introduces a virus into tumor cells. This allows the immune system to better recognize and target the cancer cells as harmful. The immune system will then attack both the cancer cells with the virus inside them from the vaccine and future cancer cells that may return after the vaccine treatment is given. The vaccine helps train the immune system to become a more effective defender against cancer.
11. Intraperitoneal Perfusion Hyperthermia
This alternative therapy option is a unique treatment for cancers in the lining of the abdominal cavity. Cancer that began in other locations can spread to impact this region of the body, including colorectal cancer, mesothelioma and appendiceal cancer. These cancers can be challenging to treat because of the delicacy of nearby organs and the permeation of cancer throughout the tissues. In Intraperitoneal Perfusion Hyperthermia, the area with cancer is heated to a temperature high enough to kill cancer cells, while cancer-fighting agents are circulated in the tissues.
12. IV Chelation Therapy
The body is naturally designed to remove toxic substances, but nutritional deficits and cancer alike can interfere with the optimal functioning of these systems. IV Chelation Therapy is a detox method in which substances that bind to certain toxic heavy metals and minerals in the body are infused through IV to the patient. The toxins are then eliminated from the body. IV Chelation Therapy can help support your immune system and your overall health and help promote healing.
13. B17 Treatment (Laetrile Therapy)
Also called amygdalin, B17 has long been used as an alternative cancer treatment method. This substance is found in fruit pits and seeds, including apples, plums, apricots and cherries. It also occurs in bitter almonds. Purified, partially synthesized versions of amygdalin called laetrile have been incorporated into alternative cancer treatments as far back as the 1800s. Amygdalin turns into hydrogen cyanide within the body, and this substance is thought to destroy tumor cells while leaving healthy tissues unaffected. Laetrile Therapy can be given by intramuscular injection or intravenously.
14. Laser Cancer Therapy
Laser therapy uses the precision-cutting power of laser beams to shrink or destroy tumor tissue. Laser therapy is best suited to removing growths on the skin’s surface and within the linings of the organs rather than cancerous lesions inside deeper tissues. A specialized form of Laser Therapy called Laser-Induced Interstitial Thermotherapy, or LITT, works through a similar means to hyperthermia. It heats tumor tissue to a high enough temperature to damage it while leaving nearby normal cells alone.
