Stem Cell Treatment for Cancer
People are diagnosed with cancer every day, but a cancer diagnosis doesn’t have to mean a death sentence. To the contrary, many patients have now a chance to recover from cancer and live a normal life, than ever before. Stem cell therapy for cancer brings new results as we speak, with more and more patients benefiting from the innovative method.
What does stem cell therapy for cancer mean for patients?
Stem cells play an essential role in the cure of cancer, and dendritic cell immunotherapy is the most notable approach to date. It’s a very efficient autologous stem cell treatment for cancer that relies on the use of the dendritic, lymphokine-activated killer cells (LAK cells) and natural killer cells (NK cells). They will block and eliminate the malignant cancer blood cells faster than the conventional treatment, without the need for health damaging chemotherapy.
To make the treatment more effective, in conjunction with stem cells, the Insulin Potentiation Therapy (IPT) method is used. It is a low dose chemotherapy and a safe way to address cancer. At clinics such as The Holistic Sanctuary, the IPT potentiation method is a reliable method we use, fighting cancer in a gentler approach. It gives positive outcomes in colon cancer and lung cancer and has led to positive results in various kinds of cancers as well as other diseases.
What types of stem cell treatment may be utilized?
To date, two main types of stem cells treatment give amazing results.
Dendritic cell immunotherapy
This type of stem cell treatment for cancer is very reliable for the autologous cellular procedure, using elements for stopping the cancer cells faster than other conventional therapies. With this type of method, there’s no more need for chemotherapy, so the toxic effects of chemo are avoided.
Dendritic cells are the most potent antigen-presenting elements. The DCS (dendritic cells) with tumor antigen can make the cytotoxic T lymphocytes (specific to tumors) in the lymphatic tissues.
DC vaccination is a productive type of cancer immunotherapy, with specific mechanisms. Cancer immunotherapy has been approved for some time now and has become one of the most common therapies at clinics. At Holistic Sanctuary, the method is sustained by ozone method ad IV vitamin drips, daily amino acid IV drips, Gaba repair, HBOT, and Mitochondria repair protocol.
What’s the working mechanism?
The stem cell treatment will try to get the best out of the immune system for addressing the tumors. The antigens specific to cancer helped the development of antigen-specific immunotherapy. With dendritic cell vaccination, the body receives antigen and adjuvant to therapeutic T-cells. DCS has been recognized as the natural agent to deliver antigens. They’re fundamental for cancer treatment research, presenting the fantastic ability to control immunity and immune tolerance. It’s what makes DCS essential for boosting the protection against cancer.
Not all patients may benefit from dendritic stem cell treatment, as medical history and specs are essential. At Holistic Sanctuary, the professionals will decide if you are the right candidate for the procedure.
The dendritic stem cell method gives impressive results to stage 4 patients. Immunotherapy will fight against cancer, no matter the stage of metastasis.
We should also highlight that the dendritic cell method gives better results with therapies such as hyperthermia. Patients enrolling should have quite a chemotherapy for four weeks before and two weeks after the dendritic procedure.
What are the risks/benefits?
Unlike other therapies used to treat cancer, there is no risk of rejection or complications as the method is done with autologous stem elements. It’s a natural method that eliminates the risks for side effects and toxicity associated with chemotherapy.
IPT potentiation therapy
Also called low dose chemotherapy, IPT potentiation therapy is both innovative and safe for addressing cancer patients. It’s a gentle therapeutic form with little to no risk for side effects such as complete hair loss, nausea, DNA distortion, graft against host disease, or liver damage associated with conventional chemotherapy. The method can cure cancer as it uses the body’s hormone.
What’s the working mechanism?
Professionals know for some time now that sugar will feed cancer; it’s why PET scans show cancer in the first place. In IPT, insulin is used to treat cancer, as it will lower the patient’s blood sugar level. Healthy cells will try to fat metabolism, whereas cancer cells use almost exclusively sugar metabolism. Thanks to insulin, they will go to an emergency mode, opening the membranes for obtaining the sugar. They become vulnerable, where point a small amount of chemotherapy and glucose are administered to the patient. Since they “crave” for sugar, the cancer cells will get the entire dose of chemotherapy. It’s only a matter of time until the chemo will eliminate cancer.
When we mean a small dose of chemo, we mean one-tenth of the typical amount of chemotherapy. It’s why IPT has also named the low dose of chemotherapy.
The method is useful because it aims only for the cancer cell, and the healthy elements aren’t affected by the small amount of chemotherapy. The risk for side effects in patients is significantly lower than with conventional chemotherapy.
The main reason the method works is insulin, which will make the cancer cell open and receive chemotherapy. With traditional chemo, patients have to obtain a large amount of chemo to work against cancer. Unfortunately, the cancer elements aren’t the only ones affected by the chemo, as healthy cells will be damaged and killed. The immune system will suffer, and patients will undergo severe adverse effects, such as graft versus host disease.
At Holistic Sanctuary, IPT treatment is also supported and enhanced by the raw, plant-based, and organic diet that we use with all patients. The body will get all the natural minerals, vitamins, and nutrients it needs for healing. Myers cocktail and proprietary vitamin IV drips will also sustain the IPT procedure, for most surprising outcomes.
What are the benefits and risks?
Since it’s low dose chemotherapy, the risk for adverse effects is minor. Patients no longer experience complete hair loss, liver damage, nausea, or DNA distortion.
As the method is gentler, the healthy cells aren’t affected, so the patient will be able to complete it sooner than when with high dose chemo.
What types of cancer can be cured by stem cells?
IPT treatment will result in many types of aggressive cancers, such as colon and lung cancer and other types of cancers.
Bone marrow transplantation, also called stem cell transplant, may lead to surprising results for some sorts of cancer. Leukemia or specific types of lymphoma give results with stem cell transplant. Stem cell transplant provides a positive outcome in some blood conditions as well.
Back in the day, this sort of cell transplant was called the bone marrow transplant as only cells from the bone marrow were collected. Nowadays, the stem elements are gathered from the blood, which is why it’s called stem cell transplant.
The autologous stem cell transplant is utilized for the treatment of lymphomas, leukemia, and multiple myeloma. People with neuro-blastoma and testicular cancer and children with cancer may benefit from this kind of procedure, even if the risk for graft versus host disease is never null. Autologous stem transplant is also used for other conditions but cancer like multiple sclerosis, systemic sclerosis, and systemic lupus.
Allogeneic transplants with blood cells are widely used for specific types of lymphomas, leukemia, myeloma, and bone marrow conditions.
As for mini-transplants, it seems that they give better results than other therapies. They’re not efficient in patients with a lot of cancer or with aggressive cancers. With some blood affections and some type of diseases, both children and adults have good results with mini-transplant.
Can stem cell treatment cure cancer?
As you can see, there are several types of stem cell transplants, with a high dose of chemo or radiation being part of the treatment most of the time. These aggressive therapies will also kill the stem elements, causing the stem cell to stop making any blood cell for a reasonable amount of time.
With chemotherapy and radiation, stem cells are also destroyed. The human body cannot function without the primary blood cells, and the stem cell transplant will help. The transplanted stem cells (from the umbilical cord blood, fat tissue, or bone marrow) will be used to treat the bone marrow, replacing the affected elements. Thanks to the stem cell transplant, doctors can use higher doses of chemo and radiation for destroying the cancer cells. Thanks to the many therapies used at The Holistic Sanctuary, stem cell treatment gives cancer patients an incredible and genuine chance for a cancer-free life.
How do stem cells fight cancer?
Throughout the chemo/radiation, the stem elements will grow and become mature and healthy blood cells for generating cancer-free new cells.
In the case of stem cell transplant, the mechanism is a bit different. The stem cells will sustain cancer treatment differently. The stem cells aren’t replaced as the donor’s cells will recognize and eliminate the cancer cells more efficiently than the patient’s stem cells. It’s the “graft-versus-cancer” effect, as the donated cells make the so-called graft. Therefore, some transplants will eliminate the cancerous cells and save the bone marrow, sustaining the stem cells to generate blood cells.
Stem cell transplant doesn’t work against cancer directly but helps the body recover the capacity to generate stem cells after chemo or radiation.
On the other hand, in the case of some cancers like leukemia or multiple myeloma, the stem cell transplantation will act directly. The graft-versus-tumor effect that develops with allogeneic transplant is the main reason for it. The Graft-versus-cancer effect develops when white blood cells from the donor attack the cancer cells in the body after chemo/radiation. The result will increase the efficiency of the treatment.
Is the survival rate of a stem cell transplant encouraging?
Several studies are running at the moment, checking the patients after the stem cell transplant. 85% of the patients who received hematopoietic cell transplantation from umbilical cord blood, for instance, stayed alive for ten years after the procedure. Old age and chronic graft-versus-disease pose a risk for the survival rate in stem cell transplant.
It seems that 75% of patients undergoing allogeneic stem cell transplants survived after the first year, and the anticipated rate of survival is a bit over 60%.
Why is the one-year survival essential for appreciating the success of stem cell transplant?
The first year is fundamental because complications and side effects may occur mostly in the first year after the procedure. Chemotherapy and radiation destroy both cancer and healthy cells of the body, affecting the immune system tremendously. The risk of infections is very high in the first 12 months after the stem cell transplantation.
The graft versus host disease may also occur after the treatment, as the transplanted stem cells from the donor will identify the patient’s cells as foreign, generating inflammation. A wide variety of side effects may occur too.
After the first year is over, patients will be capable of returning to their lives, and the risk of other side effects decreases considerably.
