In today’s world, cancer has become the leading cause of death; surpassing heart disease. United States has one of the highest rates of cancer in the world. Unfortunately, cases of cancer continue to grow despite technologic advances in cancer detection and treatment every year.
This begs the question, “What are we doing wrong?”
For a long time, the occurrence of cancer has been looked at as a rare and fatal event in the body. However, the development of cancer cells in the body happens all the time. Generally, these cells are recognized by immune system and eliminated readily. For millennia, in the absence of technology the body has evolved mechanisms to combat cancer naturally. Our approach integrates latest scientific research with strategies of nature’s wisdom to support immune function and optimal health.
The development of cancer happens due to genetic mutations – resulting in uncontrolled cell growth. These mutations appear to be result of epigenetic stress from the environment of the cell.
"The normal microenvironment prevents premalignant cells from becoming completely malignant. But when the microenvironment becomes abnormal, it not only allows these cells to become malignant, but also may initiate tumors."
~ Dr. Mina Bissell, leading researcher in the field of epigenetic and oncology.
Abnormal micro-environment of the cells is a reflection of the abnormal environment of the individual. Our approach seeks to maximize the body’s natural advantage over the cancer cells by removing the barriers to optimal health. Our therapies support the immune system, help to normalize hormone function, induce detoxification, and promote stress-reduction. Altogether, providing the body its best natural chance to fight cancer.
