Alternative Breast Cancer Treatments

Two-Month Reversal for Stage IV Breast Cancer

The Corinne Bruce Story

(UPDATE 4/29/13:  CORINNE BRUCE REPORTS THAT HER CA 15-3 IS NOW IN THE NORMAL RANGE! BACK TO THE STORY …)

We all know the story of why chemotherapy and radiation are not the best choices for cancer, especially advanced cases.  But do alternative breast cancer treatments work in advanced Stage IV metastatic disease?  We simply need to turn to Corinne Bruce’s story to show how that is indeed the case.

Corinne came to Hope4Cancer Treatment Centers in February 2013 with a case of Stage IV breast cancer that had spread to the bones.  Her belief in alternative breast cancer treatments led her Hope4Cancer Treatment Centers.

 

Alternative Breast Cancer Treatments In Action

Her story so far is short and sweet.  It is best if we let her say it in her own words:

I was originally diagnoCorinne Bruce - Alternative Breast Cancer Treatmentssed with Stage II breast cancer in October 2012, at 45 years old.  The doctors told me my options of chemotherapy, radiation and potential surgeries; however, I needed to have a PET scan because there was something worrisome on my MRI.

It may seem odd to read that I am thankful that the PET scan indicated metastases to my bone, thus putting me at Stage IV cancer; but I do feel thankful because it required me to look at alternative treatments more seriously.

I went to Hope4Cancer in February 2013 and had my CA 15-3 cancer marker of 194 (normal range for the CA 15-3 is zero to 35).   It is now April of 2013 -eight weeks later- and I have cancer markers at 39!

I cannot say enough about the physicians and nurses, at Hope4Cancer–the professionalism, the approach to treatments, the way you are treated as a whole person is a remarkable and healing experience.  The support that you receive from all the staff–from those who clean the facility and your room, to the ones who juice vegetables, to those who prepare your meals and ensure that you receive the nutritional balance you require – I attribute my success to all of them.

 

Alternative or Conventional?  You Need To Know This

Alternative Cancer TreatmentsCan everyone have the same story?  Not always.  People respond to treatments at different rates, and that is something that people need to understand about treating cancer, even when they use alternative methods.  Everyone’s body is different.Cancers themselves are different and how they communicate and respond to your body’s “prodding” makes a difference.

Although Corinne’s numbers look phenomenal, she still needs to continue with her treatments long term in a disciplined manner to ensure that she can claim a full victory.  Doing your treatments with the right guidance and following all the steps, like Corinne has been doing, is fundamental to success.

Let us look at some of the benefits of going alternative vs. conventional:

  • Non-Toxic.  Our treatments don’t add toxic substances or radiation to the body.
  • No Physical Damage.  Unlike chemotherapy that can act like a poison or radiation that can burn and kill healthy cells as well as cancer cells, alternative treatments are gentle and stimulate the body to heal itself.
  • Better Survival Prognosis.   Many of our breast cancer survivors live on to live happy and productive lives.  In the conventional world the story is slightly different.  Breast cancer mortality rates have been going down but not because the treatments are working, but because early detection is improving.   As the cancer progresses, your options get really limited. According to the American Cancer Society, the 5-year survival rate for Stage IV breast cancer is down at 15% using conventional therapies. 
  • Lowered Susceptibility to Recurrence and Other Infections.  Most chemotherapy simply kills the immune system.  That is a paradox in cancer treatments, because the only way the body knows how to fight against cancer is by using its immune system!  Our treatments do not suppress the immune system, instead … they build it up.
  • Improved Quality of Life.    What is a life if every moment you live you feel like dying?  Our treatments do not cause long term side effects.  In conventional medicine, long term chemotherapy makes life unbearable for breast cancer survivors.  Read our article about how adjuvant breast cancer treatments such as aromatase inhibitors (wordwide sales of $3.5 billion a year) can cause long-term damage to patient’s lives.  Hope4Cancer’s goal is to cut you loose once you are better, so that you can live your life!

We can go on, but lets stop here for now.  You can also read how alternative breast cancer treatments are helping Tamara overcome cancer, as well as her daughter’s perspective on how she and her mother are working together to overcome.   We look forward to bringing you updates on these amazing human beings (and others as well) as they continue their fight against the travesty called cancer.

  1. Where can such treatments be done? My wife has early stage breast cancer and is adamantly against surgery, chemo, etc. She is presently on a very restrictive diet that is supposed to help fight the cancer but we’re looking for more.
    Does Medicare or Tricare (military) insurance cover this treatment? If not, what is the cost?

  2. I’ve been through 16 rounds of chemo and surgery. Since I didn’t have a complete response to chemo my Dr suggested for me to do more chemo but as I’ve been reading more seems chemo does more harm than good to the body. I’m cancer free at the moment and would like to keep that way for a long time. Are there any options for someone who has done conventional but now looking for something unconventional?

    1. Absolutely! A very large percentage of our patients come to us after having gone through chemo/radiation/surgery only to find out later that the cancer has returned. A smaller percentage are like you – ready to take proactive action before it comes back. I have taken the liberty of sending your contact information to our patient counselors who may have already contacted you to discuss your case. You can also setup a free consultation by clicking this link.

  3. Hello my name is Beth and I have a family member who had breast cancer she fought it with chemo and radiation. Then she was diagnosed cancer free then 6 months later it spread to her brain. Then they did brain surgery and removed most of it, then it spread to her liver and she’s been doing more chemo and radiation. And it hasn’t shrunk the tumor on the liver. So now there telling her they can freeze it and that would give her 2 to 3 more years. Is it to late for her to try this type of treatment to cure her cancer?

    1. We believe that there is always hope, but it would be important for our doctors to review your family member’s case before giving you a clear idea of what is possible. To that end, I would recommend you request a free consultation to talk to one our patient counselors.

    1. Hi Marina,
      A lot depends on the case at hand and its evaluation by our medical team in Mexico. Conventional treatment statistics of course shows a decreasing opportunity for a cure as the stage becomes more advanced. Since this happens mainly because of the progressive failure of our body’s systems in the face of the advancing cancer, in that scenario integrative therapies that treat both the cancer and restore the body’s strength to deal with the disease become very important. Please feel free to contact our patient counselors for a free consultation.

        1. Hello Nerisa and thank you for reaching out. Our treatments are non-toxic and are gearded towards helping build up the patient’s immune system and preserving their healthy cells, rather than tearing down all cells in general. Many conventional treatments focus on the destruction of cancer cells which can weaken the patient’s immune system. A patient’s immune system needs to be strong to be able to fight off disease. Here is a list of our therapies: https://hope4cancer.com/seven-key-principles/non-toxic-cancer-therapies/.
