Magnetic Fields and Cancer Treatment

I have never been a proponent of saying that PEMFs alone should be used to treat cancer. The most humbling thing I can say about the treatment of cancer is that there are no perfect solutions. I would also say there is no such thing as a cure.

No such thing as a cure

Cancer is a chronic illness. Even though you have been declared “cured” by a doctor, usually defined as surviving beyond 5 years after diagnosis, there is almost lifelong vigilance and surveillance to be sure the cancer has not come back. Yes, you can effectively be in a state of long-term remission after an original diagnosis. Unfortunately, very many people do not live beyond 5 years or for that matter beyond 10 or even 15 years after their diagnosis. So, medicine today continues to search for answers in the war on cancer, to find a cure.

To me the real issue is not necessarily to find a cure, even though that is certainly a desirable goal, but rather to find ways of making our current therapies more effective to produce longer-lasting results with a better quality of life. So often, current medical therapies are brutal, making people very ill, with often poor results nonetheless. Yes, certainly, in many cases the therapies do produce long-lasting benefits, but this is often uncertain and unpredictable.

Enhancing existing therapies with PEMFs

How can we make the results of medical therapies more certain and more predictable? PEMF therapies may be one approach to enhancing the value of existing therapies. The research available to support the use of PEMFs in the setting of cancer is still far from being of great certainty. Of course, the same can be said of most existing medical therapies. So, the question is what is the harm? The harm comes largely from uncertainty. Conventional medical therapies still have a huge level of uncertainty as well, but they are sanctioned by society and the medical community. That makes them acceptable, even though they are very often ineffective. Because PEMFs are not as acceptable, and because the science is not compelling, to convince most doctors or most guideline and professional bodies, they are considered to be “unacceptable”. That being said, most doctors however are completely ignorant about what PEMFs do biologically and physically. And, unfortunately, they are not even willing to explore these approaches. Likewise, most doctors are not even willing to approach and consider nutritional aspects of managing cancer. As a result, the consumer and the person suffering from cancer, is largely left on his/her own.

Perhaps we can shed a little bit of light on this issue with the potential use of PEMFs with 2 recent studies that have been reported. One is in humans and one is in animals. Even conventional medical oncology sometimes resorts to relying on animal studies, in the absence of any available human studies. Since you can’t always conclude that the results from animal studies can be applied to humans, drawing conclusions from animal studies needs to be done with some caution. However, I’m of the belief that individuals are responsible for their own health and will ultimately make their own best personal decisions.

Human Study

In the human study, done in China, magnetic fields were studied in the treatment of patients with advanced cancers of various kinds. Unfortunately, the entire article is a written in Chinese, so it is not available in complete form to us. In this study, 137 patients with advanced malignant tumors were exposed to what amounts to a sinusoidal magnetic field of approximately 7 Hz, at 4000 Gauss, for 2 hours a day for between 30 to 50 days. The clinical benefit was 60%. 28 patients had a complete response and 54 had a partial response. The median overall survival was 12 months. The 1-year, 2-year and 3-year survival rates were 47.0%, 11.8%, 3.4%, respectively. Complications were minimal. There were no treatment related deaths. Unfortunately, the survival rates in individuals with advanced cancers normally tend to be very poor. If life can be extended comfortably, this could be a very important benefit. So, the type of PEMF used in this study seems to have improved the quality of life of these individuals and probably in many cases prolonged survival. It is well known in the medical community that people with advanced cancers do very poorly. Medical therapies in these people are largely experimental and likewise have poor results.

While we don’t have commercially available PEMFs exactly the same as those used in this study, we do have available PEMF systems that are of a comparable intensity with a similar frequency. However, these devices are often very expensive and need to be used for extended periods of time, that is, 2 hours per day, on a daily basis, for extended periods of time, for months, if not the rest of the person’s life. It is not known if treatment extended beyond the 30 to 50 days used in this study would have produced even better results. Nonetheless, these results are very impressive, despite the limited length of time the treatment was used. Since often these treatments are applied in doctors’ offices, the treatment durations are probably too short. Even if available PEMFs are not exactly comparable to those used in this study, available devices have the potential to produce similar results. In the end, there is no harm, from what this study shows, in trying. In my clinical experience patients using PEMFs on an ongoing basis, in the home setting, long-term, with or without conventional therapies do better and are much more comfortable.

Animal Study

Another study looked at the use of pulsed electric fields in breast cancer in mice. Electric fields have both an electric and magnetic aspect to them, Very short pulse length pulsed electric fields, which didn’t create heating to destroy tissue were used. The frequency was 4 hertz. Two weeks after treatment, the growth of treated tumors was inhibited by 79%. MRI was used to assess the physical changes in the tumors. Various growth factors, including the development of new blood vessels were strongly suppressed. As a control, normal skin was treated the same way as the tumors and showed no permanent changes. So, tumors react differently to PEMFs, in a positive fashion, than normal tissue. The results suggest short pulse electromagnetic fields may be able to inhibit human breast cancer development and suppress tumor blood vessel growth, and may therefore serve as a novel therapy for breast cancer.

Ref: Wu S, Wang Y, Guo J, Chen Q, Zhang J, Fang J. Nanosecond pulsed electric fields as a novel drug free therapy for breast cancer: An in vivo study. Cancer Lett. 2013 Oct 4. S0304-3835(13)00701-5.


These 2 studies show us that PEMFs have significant potential in helping patients with cancer, advanced or otherwise. Obviously, a great deal more research needs to be done to discover the best signals and approaches. It remains to the individual to determine whether using PEMFs along with their conventional approaches is something they might want to consider. As a physician, I can’t tell you whether this is your best option. I feel comfortable, however, knowing what I know about PEMFs and their benefits, that PEMFs can be a very important addition to whatever approach to cancer treatment an individual may choose. At this point, suffice it to say, nobody has a perfect solution.

Cancer Treatment Options Abound for Cancer Patients

Whenever the word “cancer” is mentioned, many people jump to the conclusion that chemotherapy is the only treatment option available. This could not be further from the truth.

Chemotherapy is one of the many treatments available for cancer and is often used in a combination of treatments, or not used at all. While the main treatment of cancer may have been chemotherapy in the past, new technology and further research are continuing to allow for evolving cancer care options in Nevada and around the world.

At Sierra Nevada Cancer Center, a few methods are used to treat cancer. Biological therapies, cancer vaccines, and immunotherapy are all used as effective treatments of cancer — in addition to chemotherapy.

This post will provide a broad description of a few of these treatment options. But remember: Your oncologist will determine your best course of treatment based on your specific cancer and history.

Biological Therapies

Biological therapies are therapies that use your body’s natural defense system to fight cancer itself, the effects of cancer or the effects of other treatments of cancer. The National Cancer Institute further explains biological therapies: “Biological therapy involves the use of living organisms, substances derived from living organisms, or laboratory-produced versions of such substances to treat disease.”

Dr. Jorge Perez, MD, PhD, MRCP, MRCPath, and his staff at Sierra Nevada Cancer Center keep themselves well-versed on the latest and most effective treatments of cancer available, like biological therapies, to bring better cancer care in Nevada.

Cancer Vaccines

Cancer vaccines can be used in the treatment of cancer to stimulate or repair parts of your body’s immune system to promote the defense against cancer or your body’s ability to fight cancer itself. There are two kinds of cancer vaccines: preventative vaccines and treatment vaccines.

• Preventative vaccines are designed to protect individuals from getting cancer by vaccinating them against diseases and viruses that could lead to cancer, like human papillomavirus (HPV).

• Treatment vaccines treat existing cancer by strengthening the body’s ability to fight cancer cells.


Immunotherapy is a kind of biological therapy that aims to teach your immune system to specifically target cancer cells or to give a general boost to your immune system. Immunotherapy can be effective to treat certain kinds of cancer, like lung cancer, on its own, but is typically used in conjunction with other kinds of cancer treatment.

“In the last few decades immunotherapy has become an important part of treating some types of cancer,” reports the American Cancer Society.“Newer types of immune treatments are now being studied, and they’ll impact how we will treat cancer in the future.”


Chemotherapy remains one of the most effective treatments of cancer available. The American Cancer Institute outlineshow chemotherapy can be used in conjunction with other treatments for cancer:

“When used with other treatments, chemotherapy can:

• Make a tumor smaller before surgery or radiation therapy. This is called neoadjuvant chemotherapy.

• Destroy cancer cells that may remain after treatment with surgery or radiation therapy. This is called adjuvant chemotherapy.

• Help other treatments work better.

• Kill cancer cells that have returned or spread to other parts of your body.

Hidden Side effect of Cancer Treatment – Big Medical Bills

Anne Koller was diagnosed wіth late-stage colon cancer іn 2011 аnd has been fighting it since. Bυt it’s nоt јυѕt tһe cancer she’s fighting. It’s tһe bills.

“Think оf thoѕе оlԁ horror flicks,” she says. “The swamp creature … comes oυt аnd is kind оf oozy, аnd it oozes оvеr everything.”

Wһen she was able tо work, Koller, wһo јuѕt turned 65, was іn tһе corporate world anԁ safely middle-class, wіtһ health insurance anԁ plenty оf savings. At first, she was tоo sick tо deal wіtһ tһе bills. Thеу piled up.

“You start looking аt tһeѕe bills,” Koller says, “and, аs mucһ аs you know it’s expensive, thе shock іtsеӏf is like, ‘What?'”

Anne Koller was diagnosed wіth stage 3 colon cancer іn 2011. She has been fighting cancer аnd thе medical bills еver since.

Heг response was tо begin asking һег doctors aЬoυt thе cost оf tһе treatments thеy recommended. Middle-income patients are feeling thе weight оf tһаt financial burden mогe tһan ever, says Dr. Neal Meropol, аn oncologist аt University Hospitals іn Cleveland. He tоok oνеr Koller’s care а couple оf years ago.

“Patients are weighing tһіs іn tһeіr calculus now,” Meropol says.

High-deductible health plans аnԁ soaring drug prices are tо blame, he says, anԁ а sea change happened wһen а nеw generation оf drug therapies got FDA approval fоr treatment іn thе late 1990s.

“We went frоm drugs tһаt cost а fеw hunԁrеd dollars fог а couгѕe оf therapy tһаt might be а month oг ѕix months ог а year, tо drugs thаt were costing $10,000 а month,” Meropol says.

Total cost оf cancer care іn thе U.S. is projected tо reach morе tһan $150 billion bу 2020, accоrdіng tо tһе National Cancer Institute. Tһе U.S. Centers fог Disease Control аnԁ Prevention released а study lаѕt year tһаt found that, compared witһ people witһоut а cancer diagnosis, cancer survivors are lеѕѕ ӏikеly tо work anԁ mогe ӏіkеӏу tо struggle financially. Anоtһег study, оυt оf Washington state, found thаt tһе longer а cancer patient survived, tһе higher thе rate оf bankruptcy.

University оf Chicago’s Dr. Jonas de Souza argues thаt it’s time fог oncologists tо begin cоnsіԁегing thе financial consequences аѕ а real side effect оf cancer care.

“We talk aЬоυt hair loss,” de Souza says. “We talk abоυt numbness аnd tingling іn tһe hands аnԁ feet. We talk about, ‘This chemotherapy will cause ӏоw blood counts.’ Right. Should we аӏѕo be talking about, ‘Well, tһiѕ chemotherapy is expensive’?”

Medical Bills Linger, Long Afteг Cancer Treatment Ends

De Souza аnԁ Meropol are part оf а growing field оf researchers studying thе impact of cancer treatment costs for patients. Koller will tell you cancer does cause financial stress.

“Here’s whаt happens,” Koller says. “I was talking аboυt tһаt swamp thing … Ьut you know, OK, you go tо collections. You enԁ uр witһ а court thing. I had been talking tо thе hospital, asking fоr help — nothing, nothing. Finally, tһеу went tо а sliding payment scale.”

Hег credit is ruined. Sо she’s driving аn olԁ car. Small expenses, like аn Internet connection, are oυt оf tһе question. Anԁ theге are otһer challenges.

“Socially, things change а lot,” she says. “You talk tо people and, іf you dare, say, ‘God, you know, I can’t afford this,’ fоr instance.” Or, ” ‘Let’s go oυt tо lunch,’ оn tһe day you can eat. You … think twісe aЬоut it.”

Koller says she wishes moгe financial information had been given earlier іn hеr treatments. She is nоw using tһe veгу ӏаѕt оf һer savings tо pay tһе bills — and, still, ѕоme are going unpaid.

Prolotherapy, medical facial therapy and cancer treatment in san Diego

We tell the intensity of pain somebody is through by the agony it causes them. This pain could be caused by joint instability or osteoarthritis. We are mostly compelled to get a permanent remedy to the pain and we do all we can to ease the pain either for us or our loved ones. Most of the medical pain relief solutions we go for such situations are cortisone and steroidal injections. As opposed to these that don’t offer permanent pain solutions is prolotherapy. This is a revolutionary treatment that comes as an affordable treatment that is a surgery alternative that allows the patient to get back to their lifestyle safely and quickly

Reasons why prolotherapy is best for joint pain treatment

Prior to knowing how prolotherapy works. It’s good to know why it is really necessary. Our ligaments and ligaments have low blood supply and more to this they don’t heal completely after an injury. Due to incomplete healing, chronic pain may develop and not go away. Use of other pain and anti-inflammatory medications only relieves the pain but does not rid the patient of it permanently. This way Prolotherapy is opted instead.

How prolotherapy works.

Prolotherapy is the injecting an anesthetic in the affected area. This triggers healing to the specific place due to the mild injection caused by the injection than in turn brings about an inflammatory response that triggers the healing process. This way the growth of a new tendon, ligament or cartilage is enhanced. The new tissues are stronger and healthier and this way, you are delivered from the previous pain. Prolotherapy San Diego medication is a medical option that provides a permanent solution and is best suited to treat everybody.

Vampire facial therapy

Vampire facial therapy is not exactly vampire as the term suggests but is actually a micro-needling procedure carried out to eliminate or rather treat wrinkles, dark spots, lines and increase skin appearance. Tiny needles are used in this procedure for production of own natural collagen and elastin growth for tissue regeneration. This way the look of aging is wiped away and that beauty is brought up. This is a natural way to reduce wrinkles and enhance collagen production. The vampire facial San Diego procedure does not only eliminate wrinkles but it also tightens and tones skin while minimizing scars dark spots and stretch marks. This procedure is best suited for patients who don’t prefer synthetic fillers.

Cancer treatment

For overall health, prevention of cancer treatment side effects and disease fighting, cancer patients need to utilize natural cancer therapies. These are the best recommended supplements for individualized treatment of cancer. The main advantage of these natural cancer treatment San Diego therapies is their ability to help reduce side effects brought about by oncology treatment regimes. When cancer patients who undergo oncology treatment embrace these therapies, the risky side effects of radiotherapy and chemotherapy are reduced and even prevented and more to that, these therapies support the immune system in fighting cancer while preventing recurrences of other types of cancer.

Organic Cancer Treatment Vs Traditional Cancer Therapy

During anti – cancer treatment (Conventional malignancy treatment), it is hard to safeguard the healthy cellular material of side effects brought on by the drugs applied. Although the associated with treatment vary based on each patient and also the medications used, virtually all cancer patients suffer negative effects of treatment which affect their skin, appear and body organs. A part from the work of doctors and patients would be to precisely manage these potential unwanted effects. The function of this article would be to summarize the primary side effects brought on by various kinds of conventional malignancy treatments and potential organic treatment (including nutrition, treatments and immunotherapy). Why don’t start with the traditional methodsThere are 4 (4) types of anti – cancer treatment:Surgery : Surgery, the oldest kind of cancer treatment, is employed in cancer therapy either to remove the particular tumor, as well as entire body organ. Cancer surgery provides the greatest choice of cure of malignancies that have not distribute to other areas of the body. But no matter how productive a surgery may be, it provokes much more all the subsequent side effects: – Risk associated with wound infection – Damage to be able to internal organs and bloodstream during surgical procedure – Blood clots can build in the strong veins of the thighs and leg after surgery, particularly if a person continues to be in bed for a long period – Reactions to be able to anesthesia or other medications. Although rare, these types of can be serious simply because they can cause precariously low blood demands. – Problems to organs, like the lungs, heart, or even kidneys. They are very rare however can happen and is life-threateningRadiotherapy : Radiation therapy will be the utilization of ionizing radiation to be able to kill cancer cells as well as shrink tumors. It may be administered outwardly (external beam radiotherapy) or even insidethe camera (brachytherapy). Unfortunately, the radiation can cause severe bloodstream changes including drop within production of new bloodstream cells, nausea, anemia as well as vomiting. Additional short/long-term side effects associated with radiotherapy may include:- Irritation as well as burning of the pores and skin – Infertility – radiation towards the testicles may cause permanent lack of sperm manufacturing – Fatigue is a frequent a result of radiation. It could be connected to anemia or vulnerable immune system – Brain condition – radiation therapy towards the brain may cause changes in mind function that can result in memory loss, reduced sexual desire, and so on – Skin disorder – radiotherapy can make the skin become tender or even sensitive. Your skin may also turn out to be dry and itching. Peeling from the skin may happen. – Second cancers : the radiation itself may cause Second malignancies (metastases) – Erectile dysfunction : radiationtherapy towards the pelvis can break the arteries as well as nerves that supply your penis and issues with erectionsChemotherapy : Chemotherapy is really a systemic treatment, their effects affect both healthful cells as cancer cellular material. Generally, these results depend to a huge proportion of drugs recommended and their dose. The anti-cancer medications quickly affect cell department. Which means that the white-colored blood cells, which deal with infection, can also be affected.This mixture of factors explains exactly why patients are more vulnerable to infections and tiredness or even anemia throughout cancer therapy. Similarly, this modify of cell division leads to hair loss or calvicie. Intestinal disorders for example diarrhea, nausea as well as vomiting, and finally lesions on the skin on the teeth (mucositis) could be observed.Hormonotherapy : Side effects brought on by hormonotherapy depend generally on the kind of treatment used as well as prescribed medicines. Among the drugs within hormonotherapy is known as Tamoxifen: they have the effect associated with depriving cancer cells associated with estrogen. The actual Tamoxifen can cause sizzling flashes, irritation or genital discharge, nausea and abnormal menstruationDuring and after malignancy treatment (conventional treatment)Here a few advices that may help: Maintain your diet lower in unhealthy fats. Use mainly unsaturated fats for example fish oil as well as flax seed oil that are rich in tissot 3 essential fatty acids. Eat along with raw veggies abundantly; along with cruciferous vegetables slow up the risk of all kinds of cancers and the reoccurrences. Enhance your the consumption of calcium; High the consumption of calcium reduces the chance of certain kind of cancers. Sustain a normal weight; an excessive amount of body fat is actually associated with a large number of illnesses. Eat foods full of antioxidant vitamins. Do not smoke cigarettes! Cigarette smoke, which includes second hand smoke, will be the number one reason for lung malignancy. Exercise regularly to hold the body hydrated by consuming a lot of liquids daily; Silver water is essential.

3 Fruits to Treat Your Cancer – Alternative Cancer Treatment

Our body needs enough nutrients to be able to function well; it needs to soak up more vitamins and minerals that we can get from fresh fruit juices. More cancer-healed patients were believed to have recovered due to this. Thought to be an alternative cancer treatment, I want to take down all the beliefs about it and what type of cancer does it heal. First stop is Sour sop. Sour sop also known as Guyabano in Spanish and Filipino and Graviola in Portugese grows primarily on tropical countries. The flesh of the fruit is assumed to possess high fiber, carbohydrates, Vitamins C, B1 and B2 plus potassium. Also, it’s low in saturated fats, cholesterol and sodium. What can you do with this fruit? You can consider to consume it raw as soon as it ripens. You may even try to make sour sop flavored ice cream, sherbets, candies and tarts, shakes and other beverages. It’s a little sour, maybe that’s why it is called sour sop. Nevertheless the sourness it gives brings a lot of benefits to your body and most especially it is also considered to have healed various kinds of cancer like colon cancer, lung cancer, pancreatic cancer, prostate cancer, and breast cancer. Second one is Pomegranate. Pomegranate contains 40% of an adult’s daily Vitamin C requirement and it’s also also known as a fruit rich in folic acid. It contains a cocktail of chemicals believed to minimize cancer cell damage and potentially kill off cancer cells. This is according to the research of the University of California. What are the other benefits of this fruit? Pomegranate can help fight heart disease and helps lower bad cholesterol in your body. Antioxidants in the pomegranate juice can assist lessen the development of fatty deposits on artery walls. Lastly is Acai berry. Acai can be described as tall palm tree that grows for about 15 to 25m tall. Acai produces remarkably nutritious edible berries that grow to about 1-2 cm in diameter. The Acai fruit is rich in Vitamin B, minerals, fiber, protein, omega-3 fatty acids and omega-9 or oleic acid. Why is it that Acai berry is wonderful for cancer? Acai juice is claimed to have very high levels of antioxidants, even more than cranberry, raspberry, blackberry, strawberry and blue berry. Studies in the University of Texas have found that drinking the juice on a daily basis can help prevent the development and spread of cancer cells. Cancer can be a very expensive disease nowadays. It takes plenty of complicated and expensive treatments to be healed. However, there are many resources that folks have found which can help lessen or totally diminish the cost of your cancer treatment. There are a lot of alternative cancer treatments offered all over, all you have to do is to seek your doctor’s assistance and with the help of the power of Internet, you’ll at some point find your way to a cancer free life.

Cancer Causes and Types and Symptoms and Natural Home Remedies For Cancer Treatment

Cancer means the growth of a useless and shapeless tumor; in the body which cannot be contained. If a lump or tumor is formed any where in the body and grows rapidly and if operated upon, recurs at another place, it is nothing but cancer. This causes decay in the body, the tumor keeps on growing and can burst at times. Early detection is not easy because the patient does not feel any inconvenience in the beginning and ultimately when it is detected it is at such an advanced stage that it becomes incurable and it is difficult to save the patient. It is such a fatal disease that when the patient comes to know that he has developed cancer he is scared to death. Bur if it is detected at an early stage it is possible to save the patient. Common Types of Cance Skin cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer among men and women. Over one million cases are diagnosed each year, with more young people having skin cancer than ever before. The most common types of cancer in the United States based on frequency of diagnosis are: 1.Bladder cance 2.Breast cance 3.Colon cance 4.Endometrial cance 5.Kidney cancer (renal cell) 6.Leukemia 7.Lung cance 8.Melanoma 9.Non-Hodgkin lymphoma 10.Pancreatic cance 11.Prostate cance 12.Thyroid cance Risk Factor of Cance These are the most common risk factors for cancer: 1.Growing olde 2.Tobacco 3.Sunlight 4.Ionizing radiation 5.Certain chemicals and other substances 6.Some viruses and bacteria 7.Certain hormones 8.Family history of cance Symptoms of Cance 1.Difficulty in swallowing food and continuous indigestion. 2.Continuous cough, hoarse voice or bad throat. 3.Malfunctioning of intestines, continuous constipation and loose motions. 4.Pain or change of color in any speck, wart or keloid. 5.Unexpected loss of weight and strength and aversion to food. Home Remedies for Cance 1.Grapes: Grapes contain a compound called as proanthocyanidins that reduce the body’s estrogen production. This leads to effective treatment of lung, prostrate, colon and breast cancer. 2.Ginseng: This herb ginseng, helps in building resistance, and fights the body off infectious agents. 3.Myrrh: Myrrh is an herb having wide range of properties as anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, and anti-fungal. It is a good home remedy for treatment for all kinds of cancer. 4.Green Tea: Prepare herbal green tea by boiling some amount in a glass of water till it reduces to half. This has anti-inflammatory properties and is very effective against breast, prostate, liver, pancreatic and skin cancer. 5.Juicing: It is an established fact that juices are rich source of vitamins and nutrients. Freshly obtained juice from fruits like apple, banana, mango, cherries etc must be given to the cancer patients in a routine manner.
