Peptides For Breast Cancer Treatment

Amino Acids - Peptides contain amino acids that produce essential proteins within the body

LifeWorks Wellness Center has successfully treated breast cancer patients since 1997 using natural remedies and noninvasive methods. Additionally, our treatments are less damaging to the body’s immune system compared to other conventional practices. Every cancer treatment program differs from patient-to-patient, however most breast cancer patients are ordered a series of insulin-potentiation treatments (IPT), intravenous therapies, ozone therapies, dietary changes, supplement regimens and/or peptides.

Peptides contain amino acids that produce essential proteins within the body. Some are naturally produced within the system, however others are not, making them essential. Sometimes, they’re used as ingredients in medications for various conditions such as autoimmune disorders or cardiovascular diseases. Peptides that are taken orally, via nasal spray, or subcutaneously are prepared in a lab and meant to mimic amino acids that are usually present in the body. With that being said, there are various peptides with different significant purposes. Some peptides contain anti-aging properties and are meant to assist people in strengthening growth, reducing weight loss and inflammation. Some peptides are useful for neurological disorders to help those with brain fog, memory issues or disorders. Finally, some peptides are created specifically for cancer patients going through their treatment process.

LifeWorks provides two different peptides to assist (breast) cancer patients: iRGD and PNC-27.

The iRGD Peptide for Breast Cancer

The iRGD is a cancer targeting peptide that contains nine amino acids. Its purpose is to penetrate cancerous tumors to enhance the effects of anticancer drugs, deliver imaging agents and halt tumor growth. The Journal of Oncology recognizes iRGD as a beneficial treatment method for various cancer types; breast cancer being one of them. The study states that, “the iRGD peptide facilitated and increased the binding ability and cellular uptake of cMLV in breast cancer cells”¹. Furthermore, the peptide increases blood circulation, increases immunogenic cell death, and enhances other cancer treatments. The peptide is an injectable dose that should be done only once on the days of an IPT appointment. The number of injections done is specific to each patient’s case and calculated based on weight and other medical factors. Subsequently, a LifeWorks practitioner will recommend the proper dosage that should be administered.

The PNC-27 Peptide for Breast Cancer

PNC-27 is another cancer targeting peptide with the responsibility to destroy cancer cells. It mimics the p53 protein to act as a tumor suppressor and attach to a protein called HDM-2 on cancer cell membranes, creates holes in them and causes a rapid implosion. PNC-27 was first discovered in 2006 and has been studied in 39 different cancer lines. Interestingly, its proteins were initially designed to help those with HIV, however they were eventually discovered to bind fast-growing cancer cells and kill them, thus slowing their division process. The peptide tremendously enhances cancer treatments and does not severely compromise the immune system like other conventional treatments. Studies show that it is especially effective for certain cancer types such as pancreatic, leukemia, melanoma, and breast cancer. An article published by Peptide Sciences claims that, “PNC-27 induces necrosis (death of body tissues) in breast cancer cells”². Similar to iRGD, PNC-27 is also an injectable peptide.

Am I Eligible for Cancer Peptides?

Since every breast cancer patient is different, these peptides may not be recommended for everybody. As a matter of fact, some patients may be recommended either one of them or both of them depending on their breast cancer case. The main purpose of peptides for cancer treatment is to augment the other cancer treatments. Therefore, in order to truly know whether or not these peptides are necessary for one’s case is to consult a LifeWorks cancer specialist.

Consult A LifeWorks Cancer Specialist

Prior to receiving a cancer treatment program, breast cancer patients must consult a LifeWorks practitioner. If they have CT Scans, PET Scans, and/or Thermography results from the last six months that show the tumor location, its stage and size, and its type, then they should bring them to the initial appointment. This information will help them decide if one or both peptides should be added to the cancer treatment program. Additionally, patients should expect to undergo additional bloodwork and other lab testing before starting their program.

LifeWorks Wellness Center is known as one of Florida’s top holistic care facilities and is located in the heart of Clearwater. If you or a loved one have recently been diagnosed with breast cancer and are interested in seeking alternative cancer treatment or learning more about peptides, please call to schedule an appointment with a LifeWorks cancer specialist at 727-466-6789.

About Dr. Minkoff, Medical Director

Dr. David Minkoff graduated from the University of Wisconsin Medical School in 1974 and was elected to the “Phi Beta Kappa” of medical schools, the prestigious Alpha Omega Alpha Honors Medical Fraternity for very high academic achievement. He then completed both a Pediatric Residency and a Fellowship in Infectious Disease at the University of California at San Diego. He worked at the University of California and Children’s Hospitals in San Diego as an attending physician in infectious disease while conducting original research on Ribaviron, a broad spectrum anti-viral agent to fight disease. He also co-directed a neo-natal intensive care unit and worked in emergency medicine. In 1992, Dr. Minkoff’s wife Sue, a Registered Nurse, became interested in nutrition and health and began to go to lectures from some of the experts in the field. At the time, Dr. Minkoff was pretty fixed in his view of traditional medicine and it took a lot of convincing to get him to come to one of these lectures. After hearing Dr. Jeffrey Bland speak, Dr. Minkoff had a eureka moment and began pursuing the alternative field with a vengeance. Based on this new knowledge Dr. Minkoff and his wife set up a small clinic in 1997 to help some friends with their medical problems. What began as an experiment blossomed into Lifeworks Wellness Center, one of the most successful clinics for complementary medicine in the United States. In the process, he gained expertise in Biological medicine, integrative oncology, heavy metal detoxification, anti-aging medicine, hormone replacement therapy, functional medicine, energy medicine, neural and prolotherapy, homeopathy, and optimum nutrition. He studied under the masters in each of these disciplines until he became an expert in his own right. Dr. Minkoff is one of the most in-demand speakers in the field and wrote an Amazon best-selling book called The Search For The Perfect Protein. The demand for the products and protocols he discovered became a catalyst for founding BodyHealth.Com, a nutrition company that now manufactures and distributes cutting-edge nutritional solutions for the many health problems of today. Dr. Minkoff writes two free online newsletters, “The Optimum Health Report” and ”The BodyHealth Fitness Newsletter”, to help others learn about optimum health and fitness. Dr. Minkoff is an avid athlete himself and has completed 43 Ironman Triathlons. To keep his fitness maximal, he lives the lifestyle he teaches to others and tries to set an example for others, so they can enjoy a life free of pain and full of energy.
