Carlos M. Garcia, M.D., who practices integrative medicine, is on a mission to replace sick care with health care. He received his formal medical training at the University of Massachusetts Medical School followed by an internship in Internal Medicine and residency in Anesthesia, both at Hahnemann University in Philadelphia.
Utopia Wellness takes a six-pronged approach to cancer in two-phases. The six prongs include:
Fortify – Our body’s best defense for cancer is the cancer killing cells within the immune system that function specifically to seek out and destroy cancer cells. Research suggests that a compromised immune system is a major contributor to the development of cancer. We offer therapies that “decloak” cancer cells that hide from the immune system and, at the same time, offer therapies that enhance the immune system, increase NKC (natural killer cells), T-cells and B-cells so your immune system is optimized to improve it’s ability to fight cancer.
Clarify – There are an enormous number of reactions and emotions associated with having cancer. It is important to find an appropriate way to access these emotions, release them, and reap the positive benefits on the immune system. Clarity of mind allows for relaxation and enjoyment of life.
Detoxify – Internally, your body is continually at work to keep itself clean. Your skin, liver, lungs, kidneys, lymphatic system, and colon work in concert to treat and eliminate these toxins and waste products. When you have cancer, your detoxification system must work even harder and can benefit from a complete detoxification program.
Modify – In order to achieve and maintain a cancer free life, it is necessary to modify your diet and lifestyle. Contributing factors to disease include an unhealthy diet and sedentary and worry filled lifestyle. Organic, alkaline, whole foods, as well as sunlight, activity and proper vitamin supplementation help you achieve optimal health and give the body and immune system the tools necessary to heal your cancer.
Alkalinize – Research studies have demonstrated that the pH in and around cancer cells is acidic. Acid pH has been shown to stimulate tumor cell invasion and metastasis. Because cancer thrives in an acidic environment, and integral part of the program at Utopia includes alkalinizing the body. An alkaline pH protects the body against cancer, and can even help to defend against it once present.
Oxygenize – As evidenced by Dr. Otto Warburg’s research, cancer thrives in an environment depleted of oxygen. The goal here is to increase the circulation and commensurate oxygen flow to the cells.
The two phases of our program are 1) Boosting the immune system; 2) Attacking the cancer. The first 2 weeks of our 8-week program are designed to provide immune enhancing therapies that prepare you for the attack. These therapies can increase NK (natural killer) cell activity by as much as 300% in just a couple of weeks and T and B cell activity are increased by up to 200%. The second phase that makes up the next 6-weeks are designed to target the cancer with immunotherapy that can decloak the cancer and allow the immune system to identify and destroy it.
