Lung Cancer Treatment
The American Cancer Society estimates that in the U.S. in 2020, there will be approximately 228,820 new cases of Lung Cancer and approximately 135,720 deaths.
At LifeWorks Wellness Center we offer a natural lung cancer treatment approach using the latest holistic and natural treatment approaches.
Our powerful cancer therapies target and treat the lung cancer while our supportive holistic therapies enhance the entire body by supercharging the body’s most powerful defense, your immune system, and by eliminating any toxic substances lodged within the system.
It is well known that when the immune system is running at peak efficiency and the body is functioning as it should be, it has the power to stop any disease process.
Types of Lung Cancer
Lung cancers are categorized into two main types: (1) Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC) and (2) Small Cell Lung Cancers (SCLC).
Let’s take a look at these two main types.
Small Cell Lung Cancers (SCLC)
SCLC represents 10%-15% of all lung cancers and is the most aggressive form of lung cancer. It is also known as “oat-cell” cancer because the cells look like oats under a microscope.
This type of cancer is strongly related to cigarette smoking. SCLCs often quickly metastasize to many different sites of the body and are often discovered after they have spread extensively.
Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC)
NSCLC or non-small cell lung cancers are the most common form of lung cancer, accounting for nearly 90% of all lung cancer cases. NSCLC grows at a much slower rate than SCLC and typically causes no or very few symptoms.
There are three main types of NSCLC:
- Adenocarcinoma of the lung – the most common form of NSCLC, accounting for around 30% of this type of cancer. It usually arises in the outer, or peripheral areas of the lung and tends to spread to other areas of the body.
- Squamous cell – usually arises in the central chest area, in the bronchi and accounts for around 25% to 30% of all lung cancer cases
- Large-cell undifferentiated carcinoma – least common, accounting for only 10%-15% of all lung cancers and tends to spread to other sites.
Other Types of Lung Cancer
There are other types of lung cancers but these are less common, and only comprise 5%-10% of all lung cancers.
- Bronchial carcinoids – represent about 5% of lung cancers, comprising small tumors (usually 3-4 cm or less).
- Cancers of supporting lung tissues – these cancers are even rarer and affect supporting lung tissues such as blood vessels or smooth muscle.
Lung Cancer Symptoms
- A persistent cough that does not go away or get worse
- Hoarseness or wheezing
- Chest pain that gets worse with deep breaths, laughing, or coughing
- Coughing up blood or phlegm that is rust-colored
- Loss of appetite
- Shortness of breath
- Feeling tired, weak or fatigued
- Unexplained weight loss
- Chronic respiratory infections such as bronchitis and pneumonia that won’t seem to go away
These symptoms can also be caused by other health conditions that are not Lung Cancer. However, if you have any of these symptoms you should see a doctor so that the cause can be understood and treated.
Alternative Treatment for Lung Cancer
If you’re exploring alternative Lung Cancer treatment options, you’ve come to the right place. For over 23 years, we’ve offered new treatment options for Lung Cancer. And while conventional treatment for lung cancer involves radiation, chemotherapy, targeted therapy, and immunotherapy, we offer a gentler, less toxic approach.
Our clinic offers a combination of both conventional and alternative treatments for Lung Cancer. Our experience has shown this combination to be effective for a variety of cancers, for over two decades.
Our treatments are designed to fight lung 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.
Seeing our Doctors
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 Lung Cancer
Don’t mistake our holistic lung cancer approach for being gentle with it. It’s not. It’s very aggressive with lung cancer but much gentler on your body. The program is tailor-made for you, to aggressively and swiftly kill cancer cells.
We use a special very low-dose chemotherapy treatment option. This treatment does the maximum damage to cancer cells and the least amount of harm to the rest of your body.
Supporting the Body
While directly treating lung cancer with low-dose chemo, we’ll also use a mix of complementary therapies to support your entire body so it can affect maximum healing. Our lung cancer treatments & therapies are restorative and work together with the cancer treatment protocol to increase your body’s natural energy production so it can fight harder, 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 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 cancer treatments and your immune system can kill them off.
We’ll also thoroughly nourish your body using superior nutrition, nutritional IVs, and the very best supplements.
An Integrative Approach to Lung Cancer
This is a whole-body approach to cancer, unlike anything you’ve experienced.
We have successfully treated hundreds of 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 approach to treating cancer.
Lung Cancer Treatment Tools
Below you will find more information about some of the tools we use to battle lung cancer and you can read and watch cancer recovery testimonials.
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 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 healthy cells and increased energy levels may improve the fight against 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 cancer treatment program; cancerous tumors shrink; pain is alleviated; neurological conditions improve and healing occurs more rapidly.
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.
