2018-06-07T06:59:42-07:00

By Dr. Francisco Contreras Silymarin is a disease-fighting agent derived from milk thistle. Several studies have shown that silymarin is a very strong antioxidant, capable of scavenging both free radicals and reactive oxygen species, which results in a boost to cellular defense mechanisms. For the last twenty years, scientific researchers have also been studying the cancer [...]

New alternative treatments  include a number of agents that can aid the immune system’s ability to attack cancer by optimizing the function of natural killer (NK) cells and cytotoxic T lymphocytes. NK cells have the potential to kill a broad range of cancer cells, whereas cytotoxic T lymphocytes target cancer cells that express specific proteins [...]

2018-06-07T16:32:21-07:00

Insulin Potentiation Therapy (IPT), also known as low dose chemotherapy, is one of the safest and most innovative approaches to treating cancer. It is a kinder, gentler way to fight cancer effectively, including particularly aggressive cancers such as lung cancer and colon cancer, but is also effective on a wide variety of cancer types. This [...]

Every Cancer is Unique

2018-06-06T23:38:07-07:00

by Dr. Francisco Contreras Cancers arise by progressive accumulation of random mutations. Each cell has tens of thousands of genes, and each of these genes can be altered in literally hundreds of ways. So each cancer is absolutely unique. Moreover, because cancers tend to acquire mutations more rapidly than healthy cells, they are constantly [...]

How Cancer Rises

2018-06-07T16:37:45-07:00

by Dr. Francisco Contreras Throughout life, the human body accumulates mutations in the genetic material of its stem cells – cells that retain the capacity to divide. This genetic material (DNA) can be damaged by activated carcinogens derived from the environment, or by oxidant chemicals produced as natural part of cellular metabolism. Mutations can also [...]

Omega 3 Slows Tumor Growth

2018-06-07T06:37:37-07:00

Fish oil is a uniquely rich source of the long-chain omega-3 fatty acids EPA (eicosapnetaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid). A small structural difference distinguishes these fatty acids from the omega-6 fatty acids found in plant derived oils. EPA and DHA have a valuable role to play in cancer treatment. A number of studies show [...]
