Typical cancer drugs are chemotherapic agents (cytostatics), which intend to destroy the malignant cells. Cytostatic agents inhibit cell division and thus cause cell death. Cancer medications can be given to reduce or destroy an existing tumor and to counteract a malignant tumor. Cytostatic agents affect all cells, even the healthy tissue is being hit. However, cancer cells often divide much faster than normal cells, making cancer cells particularly susceptible to cytostatics. In healt...

WHAT IS NORMAL FUNCTION OF CELLS?   Every human body consists of billions of small cells. These form different tissues and organs such as skin, bone, blood, liver and many more. The cells in these organs have a variety of functions, the skin cells provide protection for the body, the blood cells transport nutrients and oxygen, the muscle cells enable movements and so on. The cells of the body have varying life spans. Old cells die and are replaced with si...

HOW DOES CANCER DEVELOP? Cancer is thought to develop as a consequence of genetic damage in normal cells. The damage can be congenital (10-15 percent of cancer cases) or be caused by, for example, external factors. The cell contains genes which in turn contain germ plasma (DNA) that determines how the cell’s proteins are to be produced. Cancer develops when a string of mutations take place in genes that govern the cell’s ability to grow and divide. These mutations often lead to a...

This section compiles information from several books and recent research articles on integrative cancer treatment.A comprehensive list of sources can be found at the bottom of the page.   Integrative cancer treatment strives to improve cancer treatment by considering all dimensions of care: the physiological, the psychologically spiritual and the social aspects.   Characteristics of an integrative approach to cancer    Lifestyle ...

In an emerging field of integrative oncology an ancient health system, Tibetan medicine, warrants our attention. Tibetan medicine uses a variety of treatments in preventing and treating such chronic diseases as cancer.   We found that there is very limited research on Tibetan medicine. Very few clinical studies exist on cancer patients utilizing Tibetan medicine. We have put together a small information package of this comprehensive public health care system so little known in ...

There are some alternative cancer treatments that are worth trying. One of them is definitely acupuncture, an ancient medical treatment originating in China.   As scientific evidence increasingly supports the value of acupuncture, this therapy has gradually been incorporated into modern mainstream medical care. Talk to your doctor if you're interested in trying acupuncture. Ask your doctor to recommend a practitioner of acupuncture at your home town.   ...

Philosophy candidate Sven Erik Nordin, a patient with fatal cancer, still lives and is in good shape. Cancer just disappeared!   Sven Erik has developed an original way to keep his cancer away. The Nordin method is a holistic cancer treatment that takes into account all aspects of health. It is especially interesting to see what Sven Erik eats every day to keep his immune system as strong as possible.   Sven Erik follows a ketogenic diet (very little carbohydrate...

We have built up a database (n = 68 in May 2019) for the cancer care that falls outside the conventional medicine. Here, individual forms of care and dietary supplements are presented approximately in the order in which they occur in the reviewed patient descriptions. We have also included scientific studies. More details can be found in this table (in Finnish): http://turpaduunari.fi/taydentavia-ja-vaih...

The PDQ Integrative, Alternative, and Complementary Therapies Editorial Board in the USA publices valuable information for cancer patients and health professionals on the use of acupuncture. It has last been updated October 31, 2019, and is highly recommended by us.   Direct link to the a) patient version: https://www.cancer.gov/about-cancer/treatment/cam/patient/acupuncture-pdq ...

Complementary, integrative and alternative medicine offers a number of effective and non-toxic therapies in the fight against cancer. The preparations used must be called food supplements because they cannot be called medicines. The alternative, often diet-based therapies mentioned below often work so that they create the worst possible conditions for cancer growth. There are treatments that kill only cancer cells, increase natural immunity and cause no side effects. The forms of care present...

We present some non-toxic therapies and dietary supplements, such as Tanya Harter Pierce explains in detail in her book. All of the described therapies have cured thousands of very ill cancer patients. These treatments can be combined with chemotherapy, but the physician must be informed, as the proportion of chemotherapy can (should!) be significantly reduced. Acupuncture is one of the oldest Eastern therapies that has gained a steady foothold in Western medicine. In China, this treat...

Radiotherapy is usually given to supplement the surgical procedure and to reduce the risk of local spread. In some cancers, radiotherapy without surgery may suffice. Radiation therapy utilizes radioactive radiation that destroys cancer cells and shrinks the tumors by exposing cancer cells to radiation damage. Even healthy tissue is destroyed, but with modern technology healthy tissue can be better saved. Cancer cells tend to divide faster than healthy cells, so they are particularly su...

One of the most important cancer treatments is that the cancer is surgically removed (surgical treatment). Malignant tumors, such as cancerous growth and sarcoma, are traditionally treated primarily by surgery. This is done to prevent cancer growth. Often, some healthy tissue must also be removed around the cancer. This is done to prevent the spread of the tumor. Nowadays, attempts are made to remove as little healthy tissue as possible. For example, the goal is to operate breast cance...

The Nobel Prize for Physiology and Medicine, awarded annually, is a highly respected science award. For many years, the prize has been awarded to cancer researchers. In 2019, the prize was awarded to British molecular biologist Peter J. Ratcliffe and US physicians Gregg L. Semenza and William Kaelin for examining cellular oxygenation. The ability of cancer cells to adapt to changes in oxygen concentration is widely known. Many cancers thrive in low oxygen levels. Nobel-prize discoverie...

When 42-year-old doctor Øyvind Torp recently looked at his own magnetic resonance images, he had to admit that his method works. His pancreatic cancer did not spread anymore. He had only been given one year left to live, but the year had now passed and he was still alive. ...

Irish researcher Arvind Negi (National University of Galway) asked on the science channel ResearchGate (https://www.researchgate.net/ ) why a cancer cell both develops its own acidity and thrives in an acidic environment. He sparked quite a lively discussion. Here is a summary of the discussion....

Acupuncture is an ancient medical treatment originating in China. For at least 2,500 years, acupuncture has been an integral part of traditional Chinese medicine [1]. Scientific evidence increasingly supports the value of acupuncture. Worldwide, acupuncture is integral to everyday medical practice. In recent decades its practice has gained popularity all over the worl...
