Our state-of-the-art sensitivity laboratory can save months of unsuccessful therapy by identifying the most promising treatments for each individual cancer. Here, leading cancer specialists obtain live biopsies of patient tumors, test a number of different drugs, and guage the tumor’s response to treatment. This helps oncologists prescribe an ideal treatment course that is both timely and effective.
Acupuncture is a practice originating from ancient Chinese medicine, now widely used by medical practitioners around the world to treat pain, tension, and chronic nausea.
Treatment involves the insertion of very thin needles through the skin at strategic points throughout the body. These needles are believed to stimulate nerves, muscles, and connective tissue in a proactive way, promoting the body’s release of natural painkillers and muscle relaxers.
Nausea, muscle tension, general pain, nerve pain
Reiki is a traditional Japanese healing technique used in the modern world as a complement to Western Medicine. Reiki is most often used to help manage symptoms such as nausea, swelling, pain, anxiety, and fatigue.
Treatment involves a trained practitioner placing their hands on or over a client’s body. The practitioner then utilizes meditative techniques designed to channel and direct certain wavelengths of their own bioelectric field. The energy is thought to influence a client’s own field, helping to stimulate the body’s natural healing functions.
Anxiety, pain, fatigue, depression, inflammation, nausea
Reflexology involves the application of massage and deep pressure to the hands, feet, and ears to stimulate healing. The practice is based on the theory that specific pressure points in these areas correspond to the organs and systems of the body.
Many patients find that regular reflexology massage improves their mood, relieves stress, and reduces tension. Some also found relief from digestive issues, peripheral neuropathy, and inflammation.
Stress, anxiety, depression, tension, and muscle pain
A growing number of preclinical studies are now showing that increased doses of intravenous vitamin C (which has a different effect than oral doses) may benefit cancer patients. These treatments are thought to enhance the effectiveness of chemotherapy by mitigating painful side effects.
Treatment involves high-doses of intravenous vitamin C over a prolonged period. Many patients have found that it helps maintain their mood, general sense of wellbeing, and physical stamina during chemotherapy.
Fatigue, muscle aches, mood changes
Research on the effectiveness and safety of ozone therapy is still ongoing, but preliminary research suggests that ozone therapy may help fight disease, including cancer, by balancing immune response and reversing the body’s oxygen deficits.
Ozone therapy can be conducted in several different ways to prevent accidental inhalation. One of the more common methods involves ozonated water applied to the skin over the affected area.
A macrobiotic diet is known to provide a boost of energy when it’s needed most—when patients are going through traditionally painful cancer treatments. This diet requires careful preparation and packaging.
Our nutritional experts provide 1:1 meal planning to give patients the strength they need to fight another day. Our volunteer chefs then cook fresh, kosher, macrobiotic meals for patients every single week. We consult regularly with doctors to ensure we cater to recommended dietary guidelines.
