Lung cancer is most often treated with a combination of radiation therapy, chemo, and surgery to remove the cancerous area and surrounding healthy tissues. The actual effectiveness of these standard treatments can vary. Still, these can often have other risk factors that leave lung cancer patients physically weak and keep the immune system from focusing on fighting off the disease.

This is why many people turn to methods of healing cancer naturally. Natural and alternative treatments for lung cancer such as those provided at Immunity Therapy Center are less invasive than traditional lung cancer treatment and are focused on boosting your immune system’s overall ability to fight lung cancer cells on its own.

Understanding Lung Cancer 

Lung cancer is a malignant tumor that arises from uncontrolled cell growth in the lungs. It is the leading cause of cancer-related deaths worldwide, accounting for about 1.8 million deaths annually. Lung cancer is primarily caused by smoking, but exposure to secondhand smoke, radon gas, asbestos, and air pollution can also increase the risk. Recognizing early signs of lung cancer is crucial for prompt diagnosis and effective treatment.

Types of Lung Cancer 

There are two main types of lung cancer:

  • Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC): This is the most common type of lung cancer, accounting for about 85% of cases. NSCLC can be further divided into several subtypes, including adenocarcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and large cell carcinoma.
  • Small cell lung cancer (SCLC): This is a less common but more aggressive type of lung cancer, accounting for about 15% of cases. SCLC is a fast-growing cancer that tends to spread quickly to other parts of the body.

Conventional Treatments

The standard treatments for lung cancer include:

  • Surgery: Surgery is an option for early-stage NSCLC. The goal of surgery is to remove the cancerous tumor and as much of the surrounding healthy tissue as possible.
  • Radiation therapy: Radiation therapy uses high-energy beams to kill cancer cells. Radiation therapy can be used to treat lung cancer in its early stages, or it can be used to shrink the tumor before or after surgery.
  • Chemotherapy: Chemotherapy uses drugs to kill cancer cells. Chemotherapy can be given intravenously or orally. It is often used to treat lung cancer that has spread to other parts of the body.

While standard treatments can be effective in treating lung cancer, they can also have significant side effects. These side effects can range from mild to severe, and they can significantly impact a patient’s quality of life.

Natural Therapies 

In recent years, there has been growing interest in the use of natural therapies to treat lung cancer. Natural treatment for lung cancer is often used in conjunction with other holistic treatments to increase the chances of successfully overcoming the disease and is an ideal choice to avoid the toll of the side effects that conventional treatments bring.

As important parts of the holistic treatment at our alternative cancer treatment center, we want you to learn how to beat lung cancer naturally with 7 potential natural treatments.

#1 Food

What you put into your body has an undeniable effect on your health. The right diet can help to create and support a healthy immune system that can effectively combat lung cancer. While lung cancer can happen to anyone, diet plays an important role in lung cancer prevention. While there are a variety of trendy diets out there like a plant-based diet, the best and simplest path is sticking with organic whole foods that are free of gluten as well as preservatives, artificial flavorings, and other additives.

Experts also recommend that lung cancer patients stick with foods that are low on the glycemic index. These foods are low in sugar, which introduces less glucose into your system. Along with preventing sudden spikes in blood sugar, eating low-glycemic foods can contribute to weight gain and unhealthy fat storage and increase your risk of diabetes. Sugar also contributes to increased inflammation. All of this can weaken a lung cancer patient’s body and immune system.

Some lung cancer-fighting foods you should incorporate into your diet include:

  • Whole fruits and vegetables
  • Lean sources of protein
  • High-fiber foods
  • Plenty of water

#2 Whole Body Hyperthermia

Also known as thermal therapy or thermotherapy, hyperthermia is an alternative treatment option that involves exposing tissue to high temperatures, usually up to 113°F. These high temperatures have been shown to damage and kill lung cancer cells with minimal effect on surrounding healthy tissue. Hyperthermia may damage cancerous cell structures and proteins, allowing lung tumors to shrink. Hyperthermia may also make cancerous cells more sensitive to other forms of treatment.

While hyperthermia can be executed in varying internal and external forms, a whole-body hyperthermia cancer treatment involves raising the body temperature to 108°F using hot water blankets or large thermal chambers.

#3 Sonodynamic Therapy

Sonodynamic therapy (SDT) is another alternative therapy that combines low-level ultrasound with specialized chemical agents known as sonosensitizers. These chemicals are injected into the site of a tumor, and a doctor can focus low-intensity ultrasound deep into the tissues of a tumor to activate the sonosensitizers. While the exact mechanisms require further study, the sonosensitizers may then proceed to kill the cancer cells and shrink the lung tumor.

#4 Insulin Potentiation Therapy

Research suggests that insulin naturally increases the permeability of cell walls as cancer cells are believed to have more insulin receptors than healthy cells. The increased cell wall permeability theoretically makes it easier for chemotherapy drugs to enter the cancer cell. This also means that less chemotherapy chemicals are necessary, allowing for less of the drug without sacrificing effectiveness. Less of the chemo drug means fewer potential side effects, which is one of the best benefits of insulation potential therapy.

#5 Laetrile Therapy (B17)

Vitamins and minerals are important for lung cancer patients to keep their immune systems strong, especially when trying to treat cancer. Laetrile, also known as amygdalin or B17, is a compound found in the pits of fruits, nuts, and other plants. Taken orally or intravenously, this treatment creates hydrogen cyanide, which is converted to cyanide in the body. As a non-invasive treatment, laetrile therapy is believed to help kill cancer cells. Combining B17 with insulin potentiation therapy may potentially improve its effects.

#6 Rife Machine Therapy 

This unique therapy employs electromagnetic frequencies aimed at destroying harmful bacteria and viruses without affecting healthy cells. This non-invasive treatment developed in the 1930s has evolved with modern technology to target specific ailments, including certain cancer cells. At the Immunity Therapy Center, Rife Machine Therapy is integrated into personalized lung cancer natural plans to increase patients’ chances for improved health. By harnessing specific frequencies, this therapy aims to bolster the body’s natural healing processes and improve overall well-being.

#7 Immunotherapy

Immunotherapy is a new alternative cancer treatment to chemotherapy which acts like a cancer vaccine, allowing patients to now enjoy a safer, more efficient treatment, with less frequent dosing and fewer adverse effects. It is done by utilizing a person’s immune cells to specifically target cancer cells, which makes it far less invasive compared to conventional cancer treatment. Obtaining sample T-cells, which are immune cells that naturally destroy pathogens and cancer cells, the treatment is done by hijacking said cells to specifically target tumor cells that are usually in stealth mode from intrinsic immune cells and returned to the patient intravenously.

Tailor Your Treatment 

The alternative treatments for lung cancer can vary based on your personal health needs as well as the stage of the cancer, but there is no single, one-size-fits-all way of approaching lung cancer. Consult your doctor or oncologist to determine your lung cancer treatment plan, and don’t be afraid to seek multiple opinions to see all your available cancer therapy options.

Your targeted therapy plan will likely combine several different options, including dietary supplements and other natural ways to treat cancer. At our cancer center in Tijuana, we care about treating your lung cancer via natural treatment and focusing on tailoring your cancer therapy plan to you.
