Alternative Bladder Cancer TreatmentCancer Care Patients seek alternative Bladder cancer care at every stage of their cancer journey.  Some at the beginning, immediately following a Bladder cancer diagnosis and some who 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 Bladder Cancer and Metastatic Bladder Cancer.

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

Bladder cancer is the most common malignant tumor found in the urinary tract. Transitional cell carcinoma accounts for 90% of all cancers of the bladder. Transitional cells are those that line the inside of the bladder. Bladder cancer will affect over 55,000 people this year, 75% of them being men. It is the fourth most common cancer in men and in the top eight cancers diagnosed in women.

The Sunridge Approach to Cancer

The Sunridge approach to Bladder 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. We combine conventional and alternative Bladder cancer therapies to provide patients with the most successful, comprehensive Bladder cancer treatment.

Our bladder cancer treatment 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 cancer treatment aimed at attacking the tumor, 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 Bladder 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.

When cancer cells form in a body with a healthy immune system, they 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 care fight and be a part of successful, long-tern recovery. 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.

Bladder Cancer – A Second Opinion

We are ok being second, if we are the second opinion after a Bladder cancer diagnosis. Alternative Bladder cancer treatment can be considered a second choice 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 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 Bladder 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 bladder cancer treatment plans that meet all our patients’ needs.

Standard of Care

The “Standard of Care” in Bladder cancer is surgery, radiation, chemotherapy, and hormone therapy.  Many patients diagnosed with Bladder 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.  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.

Treatment With Natural Chemicals

Contrary to Chemo, 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.  There is an exhaustive list of morphing substances found in nature which can have this miraculous effect, 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 chemo.

Four Main Types of Bladder Cancer

  • Transitional Cell Carcinoma
  • Squamous Cell Carcinoma
  • Adenocarcinoma
  • Papillary

At this time, the 5-year relative survival rate for patients using the standard of care who have localized bladder cancer is 95%. If the cancer is regional, the 5-year survival rate is 50%. If the patient develops Metastatic Bladder cancer or stage 4 bladder cancer, the 5-year survival rate drops to only 6%. Prognosis is also influenced by factors such as size of the tumor, number of tumors, tumor grade, histology, time of recurrence and detection of normal cell antigens.  Many resources are available at Bladder Cancer Advocacy Network.
