Please tell all the doctors and employer of Angeles hospital that I am very happy and grateful for all their help.

It is almost 9 weeks from the date my oncology surgeon here in the US gave me 6-8 weeks to die without an option if even a day beyond that. Also the good news is that my kidneys creatinine has improved from 2.65 on 16/10/17 to 2.1 on 23/10/17.

Thank you.”

Our Functional Oncology Program offers cancer patients an integrative, compassionate, holistic approach to treating their disease from the moment they step into our hospital.

Our holistic treatment approach focuses on the biology and functioning of the entire cell system, from the healthy to the ones that have been damaged, to understand them and know how to attack and cure the cnacer. In addition, our medical team takes in consideration the environmental background on the patient.

6-Step Cancer Treatment Program

Our 6-step functional oncology program doesn’t follow a strict order. It is important for our patients to know that only the first and last step are the same for every patient. Every time our patients come into our cancer center, they have a Functional Assessment and at the end of their treatment they all receive the proper Follow Up Program by our medical team.

6-Step Cancer Treatment Program

Our 6-step functional oncology program doesn’t follow a strict order. It is important for our patients to know that only the first and last step are the same for every patient. Every time our patients come into our cancer center, they have a Functional Assessment and at the end of their treatment they all receive the proper Follow Up Program by our medical team.

01. Integrative Assessment

One of the most important aspects of our functional oncology treatment and the main objective of our functional assessment is: each patient is different even if they are suffering from the same type of cancer and the tumor is in the same area. For us, individuality is they key to a successful holistic treatment approach.

Our first meetings with the patient are to find and sort out the specific characteristics of each patients. Our multidisciplinary team targets 5 specific areas: Genetics, Nutrition, Xenobiosis, Chronic Inflammation and Psychology. According to the results they show and to the information gathered by talking to the patients, our medical team can make the personalized cancer treatment and determine the order of the program, to ensure the best results for our patient.

The main aspects our doctors are looking for in each case are:

Age

Previous treatment

Damage of other organs
(if it exists)

Gender

How the patient reacted to the treatment

How strong the patients are in overall health, to receive treatment

Size of the tumor, Cancer Stage (including Stage 4 Cancer)

If the patient has other disease such as: Hepatitis C or AIDS

Overall health exam to predict future complications

“No patient is the same”

02. Cellular Nutrition

Our natural cancer treatment: nutrition, plays a big role when fighting any type of diseases, including cancer. When our body feels it’s under attack, the nutrients provided by the food we consume, play a key role in the fight. However, our body needs sufficient nutrients and calories to fight the disease, repair the damage and at the same time maintain the normal functions of the body, to create a balance.

In the specific case of cancer patients, tumors want to grow, develop and survive. If our patients do not consume the proper nutrients, the body is not going to have enough defense and it´s going to start using the nutrients in the adipose and connective tissue. This causes for a nutrients deficiency, the patient starts to lose weight, suffers from severe malnutrition and creates and a chain of health complications.

A “cancer diet” must be focused on meeting the needs of the healthy body to maintain balance, and preserve the integrity of the individual, this through a diet that uses and combines nutrients of the best quality.

If our patients eat process food, any type of refined sugar or food with a high caloric content, they are creating an obstacle to getting healthy and possibly getting cured from cancer or any disease they are suffering. We recommend a healthy and balanced diet and in some cases, the “Gerson Therapy” which is a plant based diet.

*The reason we don´t offer chemotherapy as a treatment for cancer in our functional oncology program is that patients have secondary effect such as: loss of appetite, change in taste, nausea and vomiting. Making it harder for patients to have a proper nutrition.

03. Detoxification

“Detoxification is a cardinal step in the management of cancer and any other chronic degenerative disease”

The levels of toxicity in our body is produced by different factors, it can be a living being, the environment, a chemical or physical. The most common ways of getting toxins in the human body are: smoking, alcohol, drugs, exposure to a virus, fungi, bacteria, etc.

Our body has the natural function of eliminating toxins through systems and excretory organs, the liver being the leader of this function. In addition, there are certain herbal treatments that help our cancer patients eliminate the toxins from their body. However, there are certain conditions for these to happen since there are certain types of toxins that are dangerous to eliminate.

What exactly is toxicity?
Toxicity is the ability of a chemical to produce detrimental effects on a living being upon contact with it.

When it comes to cancer, the toxins are at a cellular level and are: waste, dead cells, and pro-inflammatory agents. In addition, traditional cancer treatments such as chemotherapy and radiation have secondary effects, one of them being high levels of toxins in the body. Both treatments have been very beneficial for thousands of patients and help them regain their lives but sadly there are patients that suffer minimum, severe and permanent damage.

Detox Process

*There are theopoetic tools used to manipulate liver, the digestive and urinary system as well as the skin, which can eliminate toxins by sweat.

04. Immune Support and Regulation

The immune system oversees the evolution and survival of the human being. All the defense and repair functions, are controlled by him.

The immune system is best represented for the white cells. However, there are different types of cells, such as the T-cells. They have a very important role when fighting cancer, they make sure each cell is healthy enough to fully function and deliver.

When the human body has a “inflammatory response” it means the body is fighting external agents and healing the damage. However, when our body is in “chronic inflammation” it means the T-cells in the immune system did not recognized malignant cells and the damage can’t be controlled and our immune system is active for a long period of time.

For cancer patients, the level of chronic inflammation and complications they have can determine the type of treatment they need. In addition, here are some anti-inflammatory agents that can help:

  • Japanese Fungi

  • Chinese Herbs

  • Green tea extract

  • Turmeric

  • Curcumin

  • Probiotics

  • Vitamin C

05. Cancer Supression

For our cancer suppression step, we use a set of therapeutic treatments to ensure better results for our patients. All of them following a base or “mantra” that is the center of oncology. For this step, we offer our patients, four treatment options

TCM

Our TCM (T-Cell Modulator) treatment is a specific encoded message to trigger a chain of reactions in the cells that form our immune system. In simple words, our TCM treatment is to active our plan of attack against cancer.

As part of the immune system we have different types of cells such as: white cells, lymphocytes, myeloid cells and T-Cells. All of them have a special function against malignant cells and share a special communication system to fight them together. The plan of attack is simple: recognize malignant cell, introduce it to the other fighting cells, attack it and kill it.

Each cell has a specific function and role in this plan of attack:

T-Cells

  • Cooperative: They send the message to attack

  • Cytotoxic: They attack the cells with chemical agents

LAK Cells

  •  They are Activated Killer Lymphocytes, they are created in the lab

  • They are extracted, isolated and stimulated with chemicals

Dendritic Cells

  • They introduce the enemy with a defense system called “phagocytosis”

  • And they eat the malignant cells or puts it inside to kill it later

NK Cells

  • Known as the Natural Killer Cells, they enter the membrane of the malignant cells and kill it from the inside

Cellular Therapy

Commonly known as Immunotherapy. In oncology, the definition is: “group of drugs called monoclonal (antibodies) acting as the immune system attacking cancer cells”. Our angular treatment and known for being a real option for the management and possible cure of cancer.

“Cellular therapy involves the use of patient-specific immune cells for the treatment of cancer”

Cellular Therapy extracts the patient’s own white cells, incubates them and prepares them to fight the malignant cells by giving them their immunological information, so that it can first recognize it and then attack it.

They are placed back in 3 different ways:

  • Systemic: The most frequent method used, intravenous
  • Subcutaneous: They are injected in specific areas such as: the back of the arms, abdominal area, thighs. The cells are placed between the skin and the fatty tissue
  • Intramedullary Administration: it is the only method where is placed directly in the blood, through long bones

Hyperthermia

“Is the elevation in temperature in the patient’s body”

For this approach, our goal is for the patient’s body to reach a temperature between 39 and 42 degrees Celsius. Once our patients are at this level, all the cancer cells are weak from the heat and we inject our patients with cancer killing agents. They will attack the cancer cells at their lowest point and killing them more easily.

IPT Cancer Therapy

IPT Potentiation Therapy, (IPT) involves three different aspects: fasting, IPT therapy and chemotherapy. A complete strategy to attack cancerous cells from different angles and obtain the best results.

“IPT© it is a metabolic supported chemotherapy”

06. Follow Up

Our follow-up program consists of a series of steps that will guide the medical team in the decision-making process to continue treatment, this is, a continuous communication between the doctor and patient for purposes of feedback, as well as the series of medical studies required which will give us a better understanding of the patient’s well-being and possible adjustment, modifications, or changes in post- hospital-discharge medical management.

The tests that are required for an optimal and objective follow-up are:

  • Imaging studies: CT scans, MRI’s and PET scans, etc.

  • Symptoms: This is where the patient tells us how he feels; during the follow-up calls we can identify the series of symptoms that the patient has been noticing and in which he has been working through the treatment, directing our attention towards the changes that the patient is experiencing at that moment.

  • Lab Work: Range of tests taken mainly through blood sampling, to measure different specific markers related to the disease, as well as to have a broad overview about organic function.

  • Physical exam: This is primary, since, along with the symptoms, it justifies the proper use of any medical test.
