Newly Diagnosed?

Get Clarity About Your Options

If you’ve recently been diagnosed with cancer, we know that you may still have many unanswered questions, and are likely feeling overwhelmed by the amount of information there is to sift through. We hope this module helps to clarify your understanding of cancer, and assists you in making an informed decision when considering your treatment options.

In order to truly understand cancer, you must first understand what cancer is not. Cancer is not a death sentence. While fear, anxiety, anger, and helplessness are all very natural reactions to process through a cancer diagnosis, allowing these emotions to overcome you can be counterproductive to the healing process.

At Hope4Cancer, our goal is not to help you wage a destructive war against cancer. Instead, we seek to help you rediscover the lost synergy of your mind, body, and spirit as they work constructively in tandem to heal you. All we ask from you is hope; do not dwell on what has been done, but rather joyfully embrace what you are about to do.

To take a lesson from scripture, “Know thy self, know thy enemy.” In order to overcome cancer, you must understand both how your body works and how cancer works.

We all get cancer, every day. Our cells are constantly dealing with stressors that can cause genetic damage, and it only takes one altered cell to potentially grow into cancer.

Weakened body defenses lead to cancer. A healthy immune system protects us from these altered cells by identifying and killing them before they become a threat. A weak immune system, on the other hand, allows cancer the time it needs to entrench itself and start multiplying.

Cancer is an evasive escape artist. Even when the immune system is reasonably healthy, cancer can sometimes find a way to slip past our body’s roaming immune system sentinels.

Cancer does not happen overnight. Poor nutrition, over-eating, lack of exercise, stress, inadequate sleep, exposure to environmental toxins, and emotionally traumatic episodes are all daily stressors that take a toll on our body’s resources, and may overwhelm the immune system over time.

Cancer grows from stem cells. Every cell in our body, including cancer cells, can be traced back to an extremely powerful cell called a stem cell. Stem cells have the genetic ability to multiply and transform into any kind of cell, making them very difficult to identify and kill, and giving them tremendous potential for regeneration. This is why chemotherapy and radiation often result in recurrence; although these methods destroy a sizable mass of a tumor, it is estimated that 1 in every 100 tumor cells is a stem cell that can easily survive and spread.

A large part of tumors are comprised of healthy cells. Malignant cancer cells are experts at “recruiting” surrounding healthy cells, and are therefore not solely dependent on cell division among their own kind for growth. This allows tumors to develop much faster and makes them harder to target.

Cancer cells create environments unfavorable to healthy cells. Cancer cells absorb sugar and other nutrients 10 times faster than healthy cells, effectively outcompeting them. They also resort to a more primitive form of food metabolism which creates an acidic environment, making them resistant to the natural process of cell death.

Understanding these basic roots and behaviors of cancer empowers you as a patient and allows us to formulate an effective treatment strategy. Although we can’t reverse the clock on what has already happened, by changing a few key habits, together we can restore your body’s environment to one that favors health and well-being.

Following our Seven Key Principles of Cancer Therapy, our treatment methods focus on both targeting cancer cells and changing the body’s environment. This unique healing approach allows us to universally treat all types of cancers and disease; the following list represents only those that we have successfully treated so far. If your illness does not appear on this list, do not worry. You can still opt for treatment at a Hope4Cancer Institute, as the same principles apply to your body as well.
