Alternative Breast Cancer Treatment
If you’re exploring alternative breast cancer treatment options, you’ve come to the right place. For over 23 years, we’ve offered women new treatment options for breast cancer. And while conventional treatment for breast cancer usually involves surgery, radiation and chemotherapy, we offer a gentler, less toxic approach.
Our clinic offers a combination of holistic, conventional, and alternative breast cancer treatment options. This combination has been shown to be effective for a variety of cancers over two decades.
We offer a powerful integrative and complementary treatment for cancer. This means we can use conventional approaches as needed but also use very powerful holistic and alternative breast cancer treatments as well.
Our treatments are designed to fight cancer, strengthen your immune system, and change the underlying conditions of the body so it can muster its full healing potential. We also work on the underlying reasons why your body may have become predisposed in the first place.
Holistic Breast Cancer Treatment Approach
Seeing the Doctor
When the doctor sees you, he will review your case history, review labs, scans, and discuss your situation.
As a result of your time with the doctor, he may request further additional testing and will explain our approach to your particular situation and recommend a treatment program for your particular situation.
Since your initial visit at LifeWorks is likely to be longer than other office visits you’ve had, you should plan to be at our offices a full half-day.
Treating Breast Cancer Holistically
Don’t mistake our holistic breast cancer approach for being gentle with breast cancer. It’s not. It’s very aggressive with breast cancer but much gentler on your body. The program is tailor-made for you, to aggressively and swiftly kill breast cancer.
In some cases, our alternative breast cancer treatments alone may be the best initial approach and could do the trick all by themselves. However, it may be advised to use a special very low-dose chemotherapy treatment option. This treatment does the maximum damage to breast cancer cells and the least amount of harm to the rest of your body.
Supporting the Body
While attacking breast cancer, we’ll use a mix of complementary therapies to support your entire body so it can effect maximum healing. These treatments & therapies are restorative and work together with the alternative breast cancer treatment protocol to increase your body’s natural energy production so it can fight harder, enhance repair, and heal.
Building up the Immune System
We’ll get your immune system in tip-top shape too, so it can put up the maximum offense and a strong defense. By taking away the barriers to a properly functioning immune system, it can better identify and eliminate cancerous cells in the body.
We’ll optimize your detoxification pathways, so your body is better able to eliminate any toxins that could have been a factor in predisposition. Your body’s natural detoxification organs and systems may be compromised, affecting your immune system and contributing to cellular dysfunction and robbing your body of its health, energy, and resources.
Nourishing the Body
We’ll also design a diet to follow while on this regimen, that is designed to starve the breast cancer cells of the fuel they use to survive and replicate. Cancerous cells have been shown to have a dysfunctional cellular metabolism and we’ll use this to our advantage to weaken them so our alternative breast cancer treatments and your immune system can kill them off.
We’ll also thoroughly nourish your body using superior nutrition, nutritional IVs, and the best supplements.
A Successful Whole-Body Approach
This is a whole-body, alternative breast cancer approach, unlike anything you’ve experienced. It treats the body as a whole organism that needs all its parts working together synergistically. By perfecting the health of your body and delivering targeted therapies, it brings to bear the superior power of a perfectly functioning immune system.
We have successfully treated hundreds of breast cancer patients for over two decades using this state-of-the-art, integrative, and complementary approach. It’s gentle on the body but extremely tough on cancer.
We invite you to explore all your treatment options thoroughly and encourage you to reach out to us to schedule a consultation so you can learn all about a more natural, less toxic alternative breast cancer treatment option.

Breast Cancer Treatment Tools
Below you will find more information about some of the tools we employ in our alternative breast cancer treatment program.
Insulin Potentiation Therapy (IPT)
Insulin Potentiation Therapy (IPT) is a very low-dose form of chemotherapy
IPT is a real breakthrough in the treatment of many forms of cancer. It is now widely recognized that cancer cells are always hungry for sugar – it feeds them and makes them grow and multiply. So, by giving the patient some insulin, the cancer cells are tricked into believing that sugar is in the body and on its way to them and they open wide to receive it. These sugar-hungry receptive cells are then given a reduced dose of chemo (about 10% of a traditional dose) which directly targets the breast cancer cells, leaving the healthy cells mostly unharmed.
IPT Has Fewer Side Effects
Because the patient is receiving a smaller dose of chemo, the patient does not usually experience debilitating hair loss, nausea, or the other symptoms which regular chemotherapy patients experience and less damage is being done to healthy parts of the body and there is much much less toxicity introduced into the body.
Ozone Therapy Packs a Punch
We complement Insulin Potentiation Therapy (IPT) with ozone therapy since cancer cells struggle to survive in an oxygen-rich environment. Ozone therapy energizes the healthy cells in the body and the immune system, and this may help them to fight back against breast cancer.
Hyperthermia Therapy Supercharges Treatment
Hyperthermia is the application of heat to parts of the body to increase blood flow and enhance the efficient delivery of oxygen and nutrients. It also super-charges & enhances our low-dose chemotherapy (IPT) protocol.
For decades we’ve witnessed the miraculous benefits of I-Therm as part of a comprehensive alternative breast cancer treatment program; cancerous tumors shrink; pain is alleviated; neurological conditions improve and healing occurs more rapidly.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT)
Hyperbaric oxygen (HBOT) treatment has for centuries been used to improve or cure disorders involving hypoxia (low oxygen levels) and ischemia (reduction of blood supply leading to low oxygen levels), by enhancing the amount of dissolved oxygen in the plasma and thereby increasing oxygen delivery to the tissues.
Hypoxia is a hallmark of cancerous tumors and cells. Cancerous cells maintain a very low level of oxygen to improve their survival, growth, and ability to spread (metastasis).
Saturating tissues with high levels of oxygen disrupts the metabolism of cancer cells, making it difficult for them to survive and leaving them vulnerable to gentler treatments. The increased oxygen delivered by HBOT also serves to encourage natural cellular healing, tissue repair, circulation and bolsters the immune system.
One hour of hyperbaric oxygen therapy provides the cells of the body 14 times more oxygen than they would normally receive.
IV Therapies Strengthen Immune Function
We also strengthen the patient’s immune system with IV Therapies and oral nutritional protocols which maximize the potential for recovery.

More Info About Breast Cancer
Breast Cancer Symptoms
Breast cancer originates from the breast tissue, usually from the inner lining of milk ducts or the lobules that supply the ducts with milk. Breast cancer occurs as a result of mutations, or abnormal changes, in the genes responsible for regulating the growth of cells and keeping them healthy.
Often, the first noticeable breast cancer symptom is the detection of a lump that is noticeably different from the rest of the breast or a lump may be found in the lymph nodes, within the armpits which may also indicate breast cancer.
Common breast cancer symptoms:
- detection of a hard lump, noticeably different from the rest of the breast
- a lump found in or around the armpits
- one breast becoming enlarged or changing in shape
- a nipple changing position
- a nipple becoming inverted
- dimpling of the skin
- a growing vein in the breast
- a red or hot area of the breast
- sores on the breast
- discharge from nipple
- constant pain in a part of the breast or armpit
- swelling beneath the armpit or around the collarbone.
Stages of Cancer
While breast cancer often starts in the breast, left untreated the cancer cells can migrate to nearby healthy breast tissue and can make their way into the lymph nodes located in the underarm.
Your lymph nodes are a part of the body’s filtration system, designed to eliminate and remove foreign substances. If breast cancer cells get into the lymph nodes, they have a pathway into other parts of the body.
The stages of breast cancer are expressed by a number on a scale of 0 through IV. Stage 0 describes non-invasive cancer that has remained within its original location, whereas stage IV, at the end of the scale, describes cancer that is more invasive and which has spread outside the breast to other parts of the body.
Factors Involved in Determine Cancer Stages
There are several characteristics that are used in determining the stage of breast cancer. The original 3 factors were T, N & M:
- (T) – the size of the cancer tumor and whether or not it has grown into nearby tissue
- (N) – is cancer in the lymph nodes
- (M) – did cancer spread to other parts of the body beyond the breast
In 2018 four new characteristics were added which made identifying the stage more accurate:
- Tumor Grade – a grading to show how much the cancer cells resemble normal cells
- Estrogen & Progesterone Receptor Status – do the cancer cells have receptors for estrogen and progesterone hormones
- HER2 Status – are the cancer cells making a lot of the HER2 protein
- Oncotype DX score – a score is given based on whether the cancer is estrogen-receptor-positive, HER2-negative and if there is no cancer in the lymph nodes
These 7 factors have made identifying the stage of breast cancer more complex, but more accurate.
History of Breast Cancer
Historically, breast cancer was one of the earliest forms of the disease to be acknowledged, mainly due to its visibility. Cancers within the organs of the body were rarely detected because autopsies were almost never performed. Breast cancer could be felt through the skin and often seen, and the oldest description of cancer was discovered in Egypt and dates back to approximately 1600 BC, with the first mastectomy being performed in 548 AD. From the time of the Greeks through the 17th century, it was believed that breast cancer was generally caused by an excess of black bile. In the 17th century, doctors achieved greater understanding of the circulatory system and the link was made between breast cancer’s spread to the lymph nodes in the armpit. Mastectomies remained the standard medical procedure in America until the 1970s, when a new understanding of metastasis gave recognition to cancer as a systemic illness as well as a localized one, and new procedures were developed that proved effective to varying degrees.
Natural Breast Cancer Screening
Prognosis and survival rates for breast cancer vary greatly depending on the cancer type, stage and breast cancer treatment. Increasingly, women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer are seeking natural and alternative treatments for breast cancer, as more and more people move away from the traditional surgery/radiation/chemotherapy route.
At LifeWorks Wellness Center, we encourage all of our female patients to have an annual thermography session, which is the use of thermal imaging to provide early detection of any abnormalities in the breasts, sometimes up to 10 years in advance of breast cancer occurring.
It is our opinion that this is a safer, more accurate screening method than mammograms which carry radiation risk and only detect changes in breast tissue when actual structural changes have already taken place.
