It only takes a pill. It just needs to be cut out. It is all about estrogen. It is all about testosterone. Disease is the typical outcome of life built into our genetic code without the means for change. Simple, isn’t it? When it comes to conventional medicine, when it comes to the traditional medicine […]

In the 1970s, Linus Pauling observed that treatment with intravenous Vitamin C on patients with terminal cancer, followed by oral supplementation, had survival times four times longer than those not treated. However, two randomized clinical trials — Creagan, et al., 1979; Moertel, et al., 1985 — conducted at the Mayo Clinic with oral ascorbate alone […]

As cancers are becoming more and more resistant to standard chemotherapy and other forms of treatments, different kinds of drugs have to be developed to more specifically tackle these issues. One treatment that is becoming more prevalent is targeted cancer therapy. Targeted cancer therapy blocks a specific molecular target, either by inhibiting a specific protein […]

Glutathione, also known as “the master antioxidant,” is a powerful substance produced and used by all cells in the body. Glutathione has a broad repertoire of clinically proven benefits for health. However, its levels can be compromised during disease, and cancer is, perhaps, the most glutathione-depleting disease there is. Glutathione deficiencies are common in patients […]

Millions of people are traveling abroad for healthcare services due to freedom of choice and affordability. Have you ever considered this possibility? As a young, recently graduated physician in 1986, little did I know that by moving to Tijuana I was getting immersed in the world of medical tourism. Thirty-three years later, it still evokes […]

What are the dendritic cells? Dendritic cells are phagocytes, a special type of immune cell found in tissues, such as the skin, which stimulate immune responses by presenting an antigen on its surface earlier than other cells of the immune system. The idea that the immune system has anti-cancer capabilities is not new. At the […]

The procedure of colon hydrotherapy has been around for centuries with the Egyptians first using it around 1500 BC. The Egyptian papyrus method utilized a combination of purgatives, enemas, diuretics, heat, and steam, while both ancient and modern tribes from the Amazon, Central Africa and remote parts of Asia, have also used river water for […]

Hyperthermia (also called thermal therapy or thermotherapy) is a type of cancer treatment whereby body tissue is exposed to high temperatures (up to 113 degrees). Research has shown that high temperatures can damage and destroy cancer cells, usually causing minimal damage to normal tissues. [1] By destroying cancer cells and damaging proteins and structures within […]

The predilection of cancer cells for sugar was already appreciated by Ernst Freund, one of the first modern cancer researchers, in 1885. This first finding explains the diagnostic test in most solid tumors is the FDG-PET scanner, which detects the increased metabolism of glucose in cells. [1] In the early decades of the 20th century, […]

Doctors have a new ally to deal with cases of cancer patients who have two or more possible treatments: the chemosensitivity test. This is a laboratory test that measures the number of tumor cells that a certain cancer drug eliminates. The test is done after the tumor cells are collected from the patient’s body. These […]
