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 […]

Anything that has an accelerator must also have a brake, and the immune system is a perfect example of that. The main function of our immune system is to destroy the invading agents — viruses, bacteria, fungi, parasites — but this also requires having armaments which, in the hands of the wrong commander, becomes a […]

If you’ve spent time researching cancer, “clinical trials” is an oft-used phrase. But what is a clinical trial? How is one started? Who can be part of a trial? Well, believe it or not, all of the above are pretty simple questions to answer. However, not all clinical trials are created equal – and there […]

Nicholas Gonzalez, MD saw a viable relationship between orthodox oncology and natural medicine. He understood there is not a one-size-fits-all diet. His research and clinical work of nearly 30 years shine a light on how nutrition, proteolytic (pancreatic) enzymes and detoxification were vital components of a scientifically-proven holistic approach to treating cancer and other degenerative […]

Cancer survival rates are the percentage of people who survive a particular type of cancer for a specific amount of time (most often a 5-year survival rate).

Biology has everything to do with the acid and base balance within our bodies. When we are alkaline, our immune system and our well-being are favored. When we are acidic, pathology is favored. Achieving and maintaining alkalinity is key to our health. Our environment, which is composed of our physical, emotional, social and spiritual state, […]
