Breakthrough Alternative Sarcoma Treatment

Sarcoma treatment at Sunridge MedicalAt Sunridge Medical, our highly-trained physicians are experts in providing an integrated approach to the alternative sarcoma treatment. Our treatment plans are individualized, even for patients with the same type of cancer, and involve both traditional and alternative medicines. We have integrated advanced, research-based alternative medicines with conventional therapies into a comprehensive, individualized treatment program that offers patients optimal success.

Soft tissue sarcomas, such as leiomyosarcoma, chondrosarcoma, and gastrointestinal stromal tumor are more common in adults than in children. A gastrointestinal stromal tumor is the most common form of sarcoma, with approximately 3000-3500 cases per year in the United States. Other sarcomas, such as osteosarcoma, Ewing’s sarcoma, PNET, and desmoplastic small round cell tumors are more common in children than in adults. These tumors most commonly strike adolescents and young adults between the ages of 12 and 25.

Low-grade sarcomas are usually treated surgically, although sometimes radiation therapy or chemotherapy is used. If the cancer is high-grade or more advanced, a combination of chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery is used. Since these high-grade tumors are more likely to spread, they are treated aggressively. Childhood sarcomas are almost always treated with a combination of surgery and chemotherapy. Radiation is frequently used as well.

Since the symptoms associated with sarcoma generally do not appear until the disease is in its advanced stages, the 5-year survival rate for a patient is very low when using only conventional treatment.

Revolutionizing Sarcoma Treatment

Our physicians have found that symptoms of sarcoma can frequently be improved and even reversed with our natural alternative sarcoma treatments. We take a holistic approach to patient care and strive to not only treat cancer but also alleviate symptoms, increase the quality of life and most importantly, address the underlying cause of the disease.

Even if standard treatments have reached their limits, patients with sarcoma still have treatment options.

Sarcoma Treatment Options

Providing alternative Sarcoma treatment is an integrated approach at Sunridge Medical. Our treatment plans are individualized, even for patients with the same type of cancer, and combine traditional and alternative medicines. We have merged advanced, research-based alternative medicines with conventional therapies into a comprehensive, individualized treatment program that offers our patients optimal success.

Cancer Care patients seek alternative Sarcoma treatment at every stage of their cancer journey. Some at the beginning, during or immediately following a Sarcoma diagnosis and when all conventional treatments have been exhausted. For over fifteen years, Sunridge Medical has treated patients with all types and stages of Sarcoma including Stage 4 Sarcoma and metastatic Sarcoma.

This devastating cancer diagnosis becomes rather clinical quickly when treatment options are offered including conventional and alternative Sarcoma treatments. Since often Sarcoma is not discovered until it is in Stage 4, no one Sarcoma treatment plan is the same.

The Sunridge Approach to Sarcoma

The Sunridge approach to Sarcoma 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.

At Sunridge Medical we offer a comprehensive immunobiological treatment aimed at attacking 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 Sarcoma 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 of 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.

Sarcoma - A Second Opinion

We are ok being second, if we are the second opinion after a Sarcoma diagnosis. Alternative Sarcoma 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 permanent eradication of 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 the confidence to treat all stages and forms of Sarcoma.

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 Sarcoma Treatment

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 sarcomas. 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 in Sarcoma

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 a liver cancer.

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.

The Effects of Chemotherapy vs. Natural Chemicals in Sarcoma 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.
