Why Alternative?

Understanding The Difference

If you or a loved one has recently received a cancer diagnosis, we want you to know there are options. We’d love to be part of your journey, but moreover, we want you to do what’s best for you. To help you make the most informed decision possible, we’ve dedicated this module to explaining our background in alternative cancer treatments and the Hope4Cancer difference.

What Are Alternative / Integrative / Conventional Therapies?

In the medical world, the terms alternative, integrative, and conventional often take on different meanings. As you research treatment options with Hope4Cancer, you’ll see these terms referenced often. To clarify, here are the most applicable definitions in the context of Hope4Cancer.
Conventional Cancer Treatments
Widely nicknamed “cut, burn, and poison,” therapies, conventional treatments refer to surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy. These therapies have been the treatment standard for several decades. Despite wide application, these methods are notorious for lacking long-term effectiveness and are associated with several serious side effects (see below). Although initial tumor size reduction may give patients an illusory sense of security, these methods don’t treat the root of cancer. Often, they result in the disease returning in more resistant and aggressive forms.
Alternative Cancer Treatments
By nature, the word “alternative” implies a different option. Upon reading the term “alternative therapies,” it’s common to think of techniques like homeopathy or acupuncture. However, this represents a very limited scope of what alternative therapies actually cover. Ranging from ancient and time-tested practices to modern techniques on the cutting-edge of technology, alternative cancer treatments kill cancer cells but don’t cause toxicity. This approach developed as a result of the negative side effects and inefficiency associated with conventional methods. Not all alternative therapies are nature-made, but natural ingredients are an essential component of this approach. As a result, patients often enjoy a better quality of life during and after treatment when compared to conventional regimens.
Integrative Cancer Treatments
As suggested by the name, integrative cancer therapies combine conventional medicine with their more natural counterparts in hopes of improving effectiveness, reducing side effects, and improving quality of life. Unfortunately, strict regulatory conditions in the United States and other developed countries have created an environment that strongly favors conventional therapies, leaving doctors who believe in alternative methods a very limited toolbox to work with.

The Hope4Cancer Alternative Approach

Using these definitions, Hope4Cancer treatments fit best into an expanded range of alternative therapies. The three cornerstones of our unique approach to cancer therapy are:
Safe, Non-Toxic Therapies
As the Hippocratic Oath states, “To do any good, you must first do no harm.” We’re proud to provide our patients with a variety of effective, non-toxic therapies that avoid adverse side effects.
Whole-Body Approach
Every Hope4Cancer treatment program uses elements dedicated to healing the mind, body, and spirit. We don’t just treat cancer, we treat the person who has cancer. We believe true healing is multi-dimensional, and starts by unlocking the power within.
Education and Empowerment
We invest our resources into treating our patients and educating them. By fostering the ability for patients to stay empowered upon their return home, we give them control of their own recovery. Our patients leave our clinics both feeling and knowing better.

Side Effects of Conventional Therapies

Since conventional therapies cannot distinguish between cancerous and healthy cells, they’re unfortunately associated with a staggering list of debilitating side effects. Please understand that our goal in listing these potential side effects is not to scare you, but rather to inform and empower you. Fear is often the first natural reaction to a cancer diagnosis, and may inhibit patients from researching and understanding their options before accepting a doctor’s recommended treatment. It is important to trust your doctor, but always remember, this is YOUR life and YOUR treatment!
