The goal all integrative cancer treatment is to strengthen the immune system and help destroy cancer cells. But, many people think that eating organic foods, drinking alkaline water and avoiding environmental toxins is enough. The truth is, there are many other essentials to boosting our body’s defense mechanisms. One of the most important and frequently overlooked is the role of detoxification.
In order for the immune system to do its job of finding and killing cancer cells, it must not be distracted from its main mission. Dr. Chas Grant reports that too much toxicity from germs (viruses, yeasts, bacteria, parasites) and pollutants (air, food and water) causes the immune system to weaken and lose its effectiveness.
Thankfully, there are several detoxifying approaches that work effectively to help repair a compromised immune system. Cancer cells thrive in a low oxygen environment, so creating an oxgen rich climate proves hostile to malignancies, while boosting the white blood cell count and helping to fortify the body’s defense mechanisms.
Treatments like colon hydrotherapy, hyperbaric oxygen, IV hydrogen peroxide and ozone are excellent detoxification therapies and a routine part of any well designed integrative approach. Coffee enemas also deserve a mention as effective and complementary means of cleansing the system of unwanted pollutants.
However, though detoxification is a key cancer-fighting strategy, it should form part of a larger comprehensive approach that must be administered under the care of a reputable alternative oncologist. Not only are there as many as 200 different kinds of cancers, but every patient’s condition is unique and deserves a personalized protocol to ensure maximum effectiveness. The beauty is that, given the right approaches, the human body will readily cooperate with healing strategies and strive to reach a full recovery.
