Dr Keith Block: What do Survival Statistics and Hope Really Mean to You?

Although chemotherapy can improve survival for patients with metastatic cancer, there are often significant side effects to contend with. Some of these toxicities include damage to the brain, heart, and kidneys. Many dietary or supplemental antioxidants may play a key role in reducing treatment-related toxicities. Please read: http://lifeovercancerblog.typepad.com/life-over-cancer-blog/2011/05/how-supplements-can-help-protect-against-the-toxic-side-effects-of-chemotherapy.html

Center for Holistic Medicine— Dr Brownstein (West Bloomfield, MI)

At the Center for Holistic Medicine, we believe that the human body is a natural system, which, when diseased, may often times be better served by using natural healing remedies as an alternative approach to achieve optimal health. Rather than medicate the body with synthetic drugs to treat the symptoms of a particular illness to “make them go away”, we believe in a holistic approach where we determine the underlying causes of that illness instead.

    • Hi Denise, I only have the ones on this list to recommend. There may be others but I can only recommend doctors I know. Hope you find what you are looking for.

    • Hi Denise, there may be other doctors, but I can only recommend those I know. You may wish to check out naturopathic docs that specialize in cancer. Just be aware that integrative doesn’t always meant the same thing and if you are actually looking for a more holistic approach, that might not be your best option.

  9. Hi there,

    My names andy, I am from Melbourne, Australia – my mother has stage 4 ovarian cancer

    I wanted your opinion on Protocel and if you think it’s worth it and has healing benefits?

    Please let me know ASAP

    Many thanks,

    • Hi there,

      My names andy, I am from Melbourne, Australia – my mother has stage 4 ovarian cancer

      I wanted your opinion on Protocel and if you think it’s worth it and has healing benefits?

      Please let me know ASAP

      Many thanks,

    • Hi Andros, I really cannot comment as I know nothing about your mother’s situation, but many supplements, such as Protocel can be helpful. That said, it is very important to work on the reasons for the cancer as well as have an extensive plan covering all aspects.

  10. Hi, I visited dr. Panzera, you should take her off your list. She doesn’t have an open mind, she’s a traditional oncologist

    • I love Dr Panzera. What you need to understand is that you cannot go to a conventional oncologist and expect him/her to treat you holistically. You can choose that route and go to an onc just to get labs and check in. Sounds like you would do better with an alternative doctor or integrative–but they can be very expensive.
