Bone Cancer Treatment Options

A diagnosis of bone cancer refers to a the growth of a cancerous tumor in the bones. The most common symptom of bone cancer is pain, however many patients will not experience any symptoms except for a painless mass. If there is a tumor in the bone, it is possible that the bone structure will be weakened leading to pathologic fractures.

Revolutionizing Alternative Bone Cancer Treatment

Our alternative bone cancer treatment plans are individualized, even for patients with the same type of bone cancer, and involve both traditional and Alternative Bone Cancer Treatment medicines. We have integrated advanced, research-based alternative medicines with conventional therapies into a comprehensive, individualized treatment program that offers patients optimal success.
Our physicians have found that symptoms can frequently be improved and even reversed with our natural bone cancer treatments. We take a holistic approach to patient care and strive to not only treat the cancer, but also alleviate symptoms, increase quality of life and most importantly, address the underlying cause of the disease.
Even if standard treatments have reached their limits, patients with bone cancer still have treatment options.

Bone Cancer Treatment Options

bone cancer Treatment at sunridge medicalCancer Care Patients seek alternative Bone cancer care at every stage of their cancer journey. Some at the beginning, immediately following a Bone cancer diagnosis and some when they have exhausted all conventional therapies of chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery. For over fifteen years, Sunridge Medical has treated patients with all types and stages of cancer including Stage 4 (stage IV) Bone cancer and metastatic Bone cancer.

This very personal diagnosis becomes rather clinical quickly when so many treatment options are offered including conventional and alternative Bone cancer treatment. Since there are several types of Bone cancer and many stages of Bone cancer with malignant to benign (non-cancerous) tumors, no one Bone cancer treatment plan is the same.

The Sunridge Approach to Bone Cancer

The Sunridge approach to Bone Cancer treatment is to study the whole body, investigate the underlying cause of the cancer, understand the diagnosis and how cancer manifested, establish the overall wellness of the patient and their ability to respond to treatments; then based on these findings deliver the best treatments to stop the cancer and stave off additional disease.

Our combination of therapies of conventional and alternative Bone Cancer treatments provides patients with the most successful approach to treatment. Our cancer plan aims at attacking the cancer, and restoring the body’s natural defense and regulatory mechanisms, including the immune system and detoxification pathways. More importantly our strategy includes balancing hormones, cleaning up the gut and maintaining wellness to prevent cancer reoccurrence by building back what was missing in the body when illness was first detected. At Sunridge Medical we offer a comprehensive immunobiological treatment aimed at attacking the cancer, and restoring the body’s natural defense and regulatory mechanisms, including the immune system and detoxification pathways.
Our approach combines alternative and conventional therapies to provide patients with the most overall comprehensive Bone cancer treatment. Because successful cancer treatment is not a “one size fits all” approach, substantial time is spent with each patient to learn more about the details surrounding their illness as this is a necessary component to developing the right treatment. Cancer cells develop in every human being. Cancer cells that form in a body with a healthy immune system are identified and destroyed before they become tumors by the body’s natural defense mechanism.
Restoration of the natural defense system should be an important part of the cancer treatment otherwise a successful recovery, long term, could be difficult to achieve. Cancer is a complex disease that requires a serious approach. At Sunridge identifying all the factors which led up to the cancer diagnosis allows us to build a detailed battle plan to eradicate cancer and restore the body to optimum health.

Bone Cancer - A Second Opinion

We are ok being second, if we are the second opinion after a Bone cancer diagnosis. Alternative Bone cancer treatment can be a second choice for some when all other treatments have failed. It is true that Sunridge can help even if all other conventional treatments have failed and we are a last resort, but when Sunridge Medical is the second opinion at the beginning of a healing journey, we have an impressive impact on the cancer outcome. We look at cancer differently than the traditional oncologist who sees cancer as treating it traditionally with surgery, chemo, and radiation. Although sometimes that traditional treatment can be effective for an abbreviated time, it does not always eradicate cancer and stop its reappearance.

Naturopathic Oncology and Integrative Oncology

Patients receive care by more than just our doctors; Sunridge has an integrated cancer care team with access to an arsenal of treatments that gives us confidence to treat all stages and forms of Bone cancer.
Naturopathic oncology is a holistic process that looks at the entire system of a patient and aims to discover the cancer source. Integrative oncology is a newer trend in cancer care that looks at the most effective treatments alternative cancer care and conventional care offer and uses the best of each world. There is a stronger focus placed on the ability of alternative cancer care to build up the body than that conventional treatment which very often leaves permanent damage.
Combined as the Sunridge approach, this methodology makes our treatments powerful against the eradication of cancer. We use the most current research for cancer therapy treatments along with modalities that have a solid history of success. We offer our own state-of-the-art laboratory testing at Sunridge Medical along with our compounding and specialty pharmacy for individualized treatment plans that meet all our patients’ needs.

Understanding Bone Cancer

All bodies have cancer cells within them which can develop tumors but healthy bodies with intact immune systems typically identify and destroy these cells before they develop into serious health problems. Healthy cells should not be susceptible to alteration by a change in the environment from chemicals or toxins. Normal cells effectively fight off viruses and bacterial infections before they can cause permanent damage to a cell. Additionally, some genes we are born with can cause cells to fail to function properly and leave healthy cells vulnerable to disease.

The Cancer Cell

Learning about the initial stages of cancer is important because it helps us understand how to stop its progression and kill off this disease. It is easiest to recognize cancer when we fully see how cells work normally and what makes a cell fail and become cancer.
Almost one hundred years ago, a Nobel Prize was awarded for the discovery that cancer cells undergo aerobic glycolysis which is the conversion of glucose to lactate in the absence of oxygen in the cell, referred to as the “Warburg effect.” This effect was observed in a wide range of cancer cells with impaired mitochondria.
All cells have mitochondria or little power plants that create energy. In a healthy cell these power plants combine oxygen, making it an aerobic cell (just imagine a cell wearing leg warmers) and mix in glucose, also known as sugar which comes from our food.
The cell’s output of energy is triggered by insulin which makes energy units of ATP, thirty-six units of ATPs to be exact (you can think of ATPs as kilowatts). Depending on the type of cell, depends on the type of energy that is manufactured. A dermis cell grows skin, a liver cell detoxifies and so on and so forth, as each cell has a job and a target for its energy. When a healthy cell is working correctly it is an amazing thing to behold.

A Weakened Immune System and Cell Production

If the immune system is not strong enough to fight off infections or toxins which can come from chemicals or other substances in the air, food, or environment – there is interference with a cell, and it can become sick. Damage occurs in the cell’s mitochondria (power plants) and it can begin to malfunction. The power plants no longer use oxygen to make energy, and this converts them to non-oxygen using cells also known as anaerobic cells. The sick cell is only able to use sugar in its power plant to produce energy and starts giving off less ATP energy sometimes as little as 2 ATPs (kilowatts). This kilowatt output is so dim that the cell cannot survive as a normal cell, and it begins to make changes and look for a way to restore its energy output. The need to create energy opens increased areas of insulin to release into the cell so it can survive. This process continues to change the cell into a cancer cell.
The cancer cell morphs and as part of its change it is no longer welcome in the area it originally belonged. The cell loses its glue becoming a cell called a metastasis which can relocate to other places in the body. As an example, a morphed liver cell can now be found in the Bone as the cancer cell originated as liver cancer. A metastases bone cell has moved to the Bone from mutated cancer cells in a bone formed in a different area of the body and moved to the Bone.

Circulating Tumor Cells and Cancer Stem Cells

Often early in a diagnosis we find Circulating Tumor Cells (CTCs) which are morphed cells that have sloughed off a tumor as they lost their stickiness and are flowing throughout a cancer patient’s bloodstream. This shedding is part of the tumor metastasis and is used a factor in a “liquid biopsy” providing insight into the cancer staging and progression rate.
Cancer Stem Cell (CSCs) are cells that act like other stem cells being able to reproduce themselves and are resistant to conventional treatment which can cause relapses of cancer.
A healthy immune system will kill these cells. However, if a patient receives chemotherapy, their immune system is too damaged and so weak that it is unable to put up any defense to cancer cells. At Sunridge, we insure there is a strengthening of the immune system so the patient’s body can do its job and keep tumors from growing or cancer returning.

Stopping the Glucose Game

Cancer cells are very fond of glucose so to control the cells and put an end to the damage the cells are creating, we need to rid the body of as much glucose as possible. We encourage patients to control the intake of simple sugars because sick cells cannot survive on protein and healthy fats. We introduce a ketogenic diet. By focusing on healthy fats and proteins, this carbohydrate-lite eating plan begins to rob the cancer cells of their energy and ability to cause further damage.
For skeptics about the power of sugar to do damage in the body it may be interesting to note that a PET scan, which detects cancer within the body works with an injection of radioactive glucose which is tracked throughout the body. The scan detects how tissues react to glucose and oxygen. The areas of the PET scan with abnormally high absorption of glucose are determined to be cancer. Clearly there is a sugar connection.
At Sunridge, we also utilize ozone therapy which adds ozone gas into the blood by purifying the blood and introducing oxygen into under-served cells. Anerobic cancer cells hate oxygen and begin to die with the delivery of ozone.

Standard of Care

The “Standard of Care” in Bone cancer is surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, cryosurgery, and targeted therapy. Many patients diagnosed with Bone cancer are reluctant to undergo the suffering, toxic and caustic nature of chemotherapy. However, some conventional doctors refuse to participate in the treatment of a patient unless the “Standard of Care” is followed, leaving patients cut-off from traditional medical support.
Sunridge Medical physicians welcome working with a patient’s conventional physician but additionally we have an incredible network of some of the best-in-their-class surgeons and radiologists that can support any health protocol a patient chooses.

The Effects of Chemotherapy and Natural Chemicals

Chemotherapy is like pouring weed killer on a garden. The flowers get as damaged and die right along with the weeds, but then even more resistant weeds find their way to the surface. Chemotherapy attacks every cell in the body. Hair cells stop their ability to hold onto the hair follicle in many chemo treatments because the chemo has attacked a healthy cell. Neuropathy is induced because the chemo attacks healthy nerve cells. Organs such the heart and kidneys, even bones can be permanently damaged because chemotherapy indiscriminately attacks healthy cells and cancer cells.
To the contrary several natural chemicals can create a specific programmed cell death (apoptosis) of cancer cells by penetrating the cancer cell membrane. Apoptosis attaches a genetic message for a cell to self-destruct. Omega 3’s, Resveratrol, Vitamin C, pine tree bark and an exhaustive list of morphing substances found in nature can have this miraculous affect, especially when delivered directly into the bloodstream intravenously. It would not be fair to say that alternative cancer therapy is without side effects, but those effects in no way rank in the same caustic category of chemotherapies.

Types of Bone Cancer

A diagnosis of bone cancer refers to a the growth of a cancerous tumor in the bones. The most common symptom of bone cancer is pain, however many patients will not experience any symptoms except for a painless mass. If there is a tumor in the bone, it is possible that the bone structure will be weakened leading to pathologic fractures.

2 Categories of Bone Cancer

Primary Bone Tumors – These can be divided into benign tumors and cancerous tumors. Types of benign bone tumors include neoplastic, infections, inflammatory and developmental in etiology. Examples of benign tumors includes osteochondroma, osteoma, bone cyst and fibrous dysplasia. Malignant primary bone tumors include, osteosarcoma, chondrosarcoma, Ewing’s sarcoma as well as other sarcoma types. Multiple myeloma is a cancer of the blood that can also be found in one or more bones.
Primary cancers of the bones account for less that 1% percent of all cancers. Osteosarcoma is the most common primary bone cancer, followed by chondrosarcoma, Ewing’s tumor, chordoma and malignant fibrous histiocytoma/fibrosarcoma.
The prognosis for patients with primary bone cancer varies and depends on the type and stage of the cancer.
Secondary Bone Tumors – These are tumors that originate in other organs of the body and then spread (metastasize) to the bones. Most common primary tumors that spread to bone are breast, lung and prostate cancers. These tumors are most frequently found located in the axial skeleton (spine) rather than the peripheral bones. Tumors which originate in the soft tissues may also involve bones through direct invasion.
At Sunridge Medical, our highly-trained physicians are experts in providing an integrated approach to the treatment of bone cancer.

The combination of aggressive surgical strategies and chemotherapy has led to improvements in survival time, although individuals with recurrent or metastatic conditions still have an extremely poor prognosis. This disappointing situation strongly indicates that testing novel, targeted therapeutic agents is imperative to prevent the progression of osteosarcoma and enhance patient survival time. Curcumin, a naturally occurring phenolic compound found in Curcuma longa, has been shown to have a wide variety of anti-tumor, anti-oxidant, and anti-inflammatory activities in many types of cancers including osteosarcoma. Curcumin is a highly pleiotropic molecule that can modulate intracellular signaling pathways to regulate cell proliferation, inflammation, and apoptosis. These signaling pathways include RANK/RANKL, Notch, Wnt/β-catenin, apoptosis, autophagy, JAK/STAT, and HIF-1 pathways. Additionally, curcumin can regulate the expression of various types of microRNAs that are involved in osteosarcoma. Therefore, curcumin may be a potential candidate for the prevention and treatment of osteosarcoma. This comprehensive review not only covers the use of curcumin in the treatment of osteosarcoma and its anti-cancer molecular mechanisms but also reveals the novel delivery strategies and combination therapies with the aim to improve the therapeutic effect of curcumin., 1687-8450,, 10.1155/2021/3006853, Journal of Oncology
Peng, Lihua, Jiang, Dianming, Resveratrol eliminates cancer stem cells of osteosarcoma by STAT3 pathway inhibition, 1932-6203, 2018/10/24, Resveratrol shows potent anti-tumor therapeutic properties in various tumors. However, the exact effect of resveratrol on osteosarcoma cells, especially cancer stem cells, remains unclear. In this study, we examined the effect of resveratrol on osteosarcoma stem cells and explored the underlying molecular mechanisms. Resveratrol inhibited cell viability, self-renewal ability and tumorigenesis of osteosarcoma cells, whereas showed no significant inhibition effects to normal osteoblast cells. Mechanically, resveratrol treatment decreased cytokines synthesis and inhibited JAK2/STAT3 signaling, which was consistent with the decline of cancer stem cells marker, CD133. Exogenous STAT3 activation attenuated the cancer stem cell elimination effects of resveratrol treatment. Our results demonstrated that resveratrol inhibited osteosarcoma cell proliferation and tumorigenesis ability, which was correlated with cytokines inhibition related JAK2/STAT3 signaling blockage. Resveratrol may be a promising therapeutic agent for osteosarcoma management. e0205918, VL – 13, IS – 10, 30356255, UR –, 10.1371/journal.pone.0205918,, 30356255[pmid] PMC6200233[pmcid], PONE-D-18-13802[PII], PLoS One, Apoptosis/drug effects, Cell Line, Tumor, Cell Proliferation/drug effects, Cell Survival/drug effects, Janus Kinase 2/metabolism, Neoplastic Stem Cells/drug effects/*metabolism/*pathology, Osteoblasts/drug effects/metabolism/pathology, Osteosarcoma/*metabolism/*pathology, Resveratrol/*pharmacology, STAT3 Transcription Factor/*metabolism, *Signal Transduction, PB – Public Library of Science
