Gastric Cancer Treatment Options
Gastric cancer or stomach cancer is a disease affecting many people worldwide and is considered to be the number one cause of cancer deaths throughout the world.
Like all cancers, gastric cancer is best treated when diagnosed early. Unfortunately, patients usually begin to notice symptoms once the cancer is in its advanced stage and may have already spread past the stomach.
At Sunridge Medical, our highly-trained physicians are experts in providing an integrated approach to the alternative treatment of gastric cancer. Our treatment plans are individualized, even for patients with the same type of cancer, and involve both traditional and alternative medicine. 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 alternative gastric 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 gastric cancer still have treatment options.
Revolutionizing Gastric Cancer Treatment
Alternative Gastric Cancer Treatment is one of the most common cancers affecting American women. It is estimated that 41,250 women will receive this diagnosis this year, making it the fourth most common female cancer.
Gastric cancer usually begins in the endometrium, or the lining of the Stomach. If this is the origin of the cancer cells, this type of cancer is called endometrial cancer. It most commonly occurs between the ages of 60 and 70.
There are other cells in the Stomach, however, that can become cancerous, such as the muscle cells (myometrial cells). This type of cancer is considered a sarcoma and is not as common as it only accounts for approximately 5% of all diagnosed Gastric cancers.
Gastric cancer is often detected at an early stage because vaginal bleeding between menstrual periods or after menopause is a common symptom. If detected early, this slow-growing cancer is likely to be only confined to the stomach. Surgically removing the stomach eliminates this cancer 90% of the time. If the cancer has spread, conventional treatments are not as successful.
Our physicians have found that symptoms can frequently be improved and even reversed with our natural alternative Gastric 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 Gastric cancer still have treatment options at Sunridge Medical.
Gastric Cancer Treatment Options
Cancer Care patients seek alternative Gastric cancer treatment at every stage of their cancer journey. Some at the beginning, during or immediately following a Gastric cancer diagnosis and when all conventional treatments have been exhausted. For over fifteen years, Sunridge Medical has treated patients with all types and stages of Gastric cancer including Stage 4 Gastric cancer and metastatic Gastric cancer.
This devastating cancer diagnosis becomes rather clinical quickly when treatment options are offered including conventional and alternative Gastric cancer treatments. We treat Gastric cancer at every stage including Stage 4 gastric cancer.
The Sunridge Approach to Gastric Cancer
The Sunridge approach to Gastric 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 Gastric Cancer treatments provide 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 Gastric 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 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.
Gastric Cancer – A Second Opinion
We are ok being second, if we are the second opinion after a Gastric cancer diagnosis. Alternative Gastric cancer treatment can be an option for some when all other treatments have failed. Our hope is to meet patients to offer them a second opinion and not just last resort options. We can help even when all other conventional treatments have failed, and we are a last call. However, when Sunridge Medical is the second opinion at the beginning of a healing journey, we have an impressive impact on the outcome of cancer.
We look at cancer differently than the traditional oncologist who only 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. We seek out the end of and permanent eradication of gastric cancer.
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 Gastric 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.
Standard of Care for Gastric Cancer Treatment
The “Standard of Care” in Gastric cancer is surgery and chemoradiation therapy. Many patients diagnosed with Gastric cancer are reluctant to undergo the suffering, toxic and caustic nature of chemo. However, some conventional doctors refuse to participate in the treatment of a patient unless the conventional medical “Standard of Care” is followed. This can leave patients cut-off from traditional medical support when seeking naturopathic oncology.
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 vs. Natural Chemicals in Gastric Cancer Treatment
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 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.
