Alternative Cancer Therapies and Your Diet - helping Your Body Fight the Good Fight

Food is your body’s fuel, giving your cells the energy to sustain your 11 major organ systems. When cancer therapy enters the scene, your body goes into overdrive as it battles invading cells. That’s why most cancer therapies, though designed to help and heal, make you tired in the process. Your body is fighting the good fight, and it doesn’t want to give up.

With the right nutrition, you can dramatically improve your body’s response to cancer treatment–and feel better in the process. You and your team of health professionals have worked hard to target your cancer with the most effective treatment. Why not have your diet take aim as well?


First and foremost, stay hydrated. Cancer treatments often cause patients to lose fluids through vomiting or diarrhea. Dehydration throws the body out of balance, making treatments less effective as you continue to feel worse.

It’s important to prevent that cycle by drinking at least eight 8-ounce glasses of liquid each day. Remember, if the sid…

Why Vitamin C is Important

Some say that Vitamin C is one of the most important vitamins to add supplementally to your body. It is one of the safest and most effective nutrients, and helps your body fight again eye disease, skin wrinkling, cardiovascular issues, and helps boost the immune system. Despite all of these benefits, the body can not produce its own vitamin c meaning it is that much more important to take it as a vitamin.

Being a strong antioxidant is one of the most common reasons people take a vitamin c supplement. Antioxidants are molecules that help boost the immune system by protecting cells from harmful molecules like free radicals. Vitamin C has been recorded to boost your blood's antioxidant levels by up to 30%. That's a big difference when fighting illnesses and inflammation.

A lesser-known benefit is the ability to help lower blood pressure. Nearly 1/3rd of American adults experience high blood pressure. By adding a vitamin c supplement you help the blood vessels around your heart t…

Supplemental Alternative Therapy While Undergoing Chemotherapy

Since no two cancer diagnoses–or the people who receive them–are the same, a  combination of therapies usually yields better results than a one-size-fits-all approach. A holistic specialist who takes the time to get to know you, your body, and your diagnosis can customize treatment to maximize positive outcomes.

Even patients already receiving chemo can experience the benefits of alternative cancer therapies by combining them with their existing treatment.

Insulin Potentiation Therapy
Fight fire with fire by turning diseased cells against themselves! IPT, a weekly intravenous infusion of short-acting insulin, rapidly decreases the level of sugar in a patient’s blood, “starving” the bad cells to death while preserving healthy cells.

Not only does this treatment help the body’s natural processes combat these diseased cells, but it also helps medicine get into the body much more easily and in greater quantities than ever before.

What to do Before You Begin Traditional Cancer Treatment

Any cancer diagnosis brings a wave of emotions with it: confusion, anger, sadness, fear. You want to do something–anything–to improve your health as quickly as possible and get back to your life. 
While it’s important to take action, your cancer treatment will yield better results if you get to know your body before committing to a plan. Traditional treatments like chemotherapy can in fact damage the very body they are intended to heal if selected and administered ineffectively.
Before beginning the process, it’s important to breathe, take a step back, and gather all the information you can about what, and who, you’re treating.

The Greek Test The RGCC test, commonly referred to as the “Greek Test” because it is performed only in Greece, analyzes your blood sample to uncover a profile for your specific cancer cell type.
This profile is then tested against dozens of common chemotherapy drugs as well as natural treatments. These results are used to determine which therapies may be the mo…

4 Reasons Why Natural Medicine is Better

Alternative Medicine Shouldn’t be the Alternative Form of Healthcare
When making the decision on how you’re going to approach treatment, it’s important to choose a method that not only works, but stays true to your values. Discovering illness is a terrifying experience, but you don’t have to fight your battle alone.
Did you know?
The National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM) found that 38 percent of adults and 12 percent of children are choosing alternative medical treatment.
Compared to traditional medicine, alternative medical approaches provide many benefits throughout the duration of treatment for patients. Here are four reasons why natural medicine proves more promising than traditional meds.
1. Healthy body, healthy mind. Alternative medicine sees patients as people, not illnesses. The approach of these methods emphasize wellness as a whole for your body, mind, and spirit. This reduces stress and makes the road to recovery much more smooth for patients. B…

Alternative Cancer Treatments to Support Healing

At the Get Well Center, we understand that traditional cancer treatments such as cancer can wear on your body and soul. Feeling tired and constantly fighting is hard work. Through pairing alternative treatments, healing and overall wellbeing can be maximized while receiving your conventional cancer treatment. The Get Well Center offers several suggested therapies to pair with other cancer treatment.
Insulin Potentiation Therapy (IPT) is one of the most commonly suggested complementary therapies because it targets cell health. IPT decreases the blood’s sugar level with short-acting insulin so it essentially starves the harmful cells with preserving healthy cells. Not only are the diseased cells destroyed, but IPT helps medicine more effectively enter the body. Along with Insulin Potentiation Therapy, treatment plans oftentimes include Lymphatic Therapy. Lymphatic Therapy uses a Light Beam Generator to produce a low current that transfers to cells in the targeted lymphatic regions. Thr…
