At Sanoviv, we see the importance of a balanced approach to cancer therapies. Not All standard treatments are bad and not all alternative treatments are good. In fact, we believe it is important to incorporate the best of each approach into an integrative therapy. Many of our natural and biological therapies have their roots in Europe where they have been practiced for many decades.
Our integrative form of oncology uses many traditional modalities in combination with alternative medical procedures, and sometimes surgery (when indicated) to help our guests win the battle against cancer. Some of our guests chose to undergo chemotherapy at other facilities and come to Sanoviv for additional supportive therapies.
Our 5-part approach to overcoming cancer includes:
Detoxification involves removal of harmful substances from the body which is continually confronted with toxins. These toxins are found in the air we breathe, in the food we eat, in our clothes, in furniture and even in our mouth as dental toxins. In order to optimize the immune system response and reduce side effects of treatment, the body needs to reduce its toxic load. At Sanoviv, you are in a low-toxin environment to optimize healing. A detox regimen, including stimulating the many pathways of detoxification, will be used to help the body rid itself of toxins, improving metabolic function. Dental treatment may be needed to eliminate additional sources of toxins.
Immune Modulation therapy brings the ratio of different types of immune cells back into balance so that they can perform their critical function to search, detect, and destroy foreign or diseased cells. Balancing the immune system is much better than simply stimulating the immune system (which could cause it to overreact and attack healthy cells). Restoring healthy immune function is especially important for those with cancer.
At Sanoviv, we accomplish this using various immunotherapy treatments to balance and restore immune function. Correcting immune defects and imbalances can improve outcomes for cancer patients.
Substitution involves giving the body the substances it needs to regain health. We apply orthomolecular medicine, which uses vitamins, minerals and amino acids to promote health and healing in the body. High intravenous doses of these substances show a pharmaceutical effect and can have an immediate impact on the immune system and metabolism. Since the days of Linus Pauling, orthomolecular medicine has been traditionally used in biological oncology to reduce tumor size, kill cancer cells, curb the spread of cancer and improve the quality of life.
We use different therapeutic interventions to enhance your body’s ability to destroy cancer cells, while respecting the integrity of normal, healthy cells. These are done in conjunction with other therapies to synergize their potency while diminishing side effects. Specific therapies will be recommended by your doctor to address your unique disease profile.
Our psychologists help guide guests toward recognizing patterns in their lives that may have made them susceptible to cancer. This may include providing solutions for stress management and lifestyle coaching. Through different forms of bodywork and mind-body healing, inner balance is increased, internal stress is released and the self-healing powers of the body are stimulated.
