2. Ozone Therapy
Ozone therapy is an alternative treatment for cancer that has gained popularity in the recent past.
It is being practiced in many countries like Germany,Spain,Russia,China,Cuba,Indonesia for few decades with great success.The process of ozone therapy works in the body by infusing trioxygen into the blood and recirculating it through the bloodstream.
A healthy body can renew and regenerate itself regularly. Hampering of the bodily processes due to an unhealthy lifestyle and an increase in the number of toxins in the body leads to impairment of bodily functions. This leads to a lack of oxygen required for the cells and rise to chronic diseases like cancer.
Ozone therapy helps increase oxygen in the body which equips the body to charge up and fight diseases. It helps in reducing the symptoms of inflammation in the cells of the body. Cancer flourishes in a low-oxygen environment; moderate antioxidative boosts can help with the supply of oxygen and ultimately help in the elimination of those cancerous cells.
There are different methods through which ozone therapy can be performed on individuals:
Major Autohemotherapy: The blood of the patient is taken and infused with ozone – oxygen mixture and then recirculated back into the body.
Rectal ozone: About 150-200ml ozone oxygen mixture is collected in bag and slowly given through anus like an enema.This is especially useful in detoxing the liver.
Insufflation: Inducing ozone gas through different cavities of the body like the nose, ear, etc. sinusitis, lung infection, ear infection etc
Direct Injection: Narrowing down the exact area by the physician can be directly subjective to injection with trioxygen for maximum effectiveness.This is done foe localised pain management.
3. High Dose Vitamin C
Vitamin C has an anti-cancer potential when administered with the right dosage to patients. Vitamin C has been effective in reversing the effect of life-threatening inflammatory diseases.
The popping of Vitamin C pills seldom affects the cancer treatment; medicine taken through the mouth stops its functioning after a certain level of build up. This is where the IV treatment of Vitamin C comes into place. The IV of vitamin C can overcome the levels of the digestive system and circumvent the regulation of Vitamin C levels.
The aggravated levels of Vitamin C in the body can help in the shrinking cancer cells of aggressive tumors like ovarian, pancreatic, brain, Liver, colon etc.
Introducing supplements into the cancer treatment can help in boosting the immunity levels and helps in easing out the side effects of chemotherapy and radiation. Supplements have to be taken after careful consideration with the doctor. Enhancing the immune system will help in destroying the cancerous skills. Taking in green tea, garlic, fibrous fruits, and vegetables can help in the overall health of a human being. It is extremely necessary to stay healthy while taking the arduous treatments related to cancer.
5. Life Style and Diet Changes
Having a diet with fruits and vegetables can help lower cancer rates. Vegetables have phytochemicals that can protect the cells from damage. They have the benefits of being anti-inflammatory as well. Fibre-rich foods have the ability to prevent prospective chances of breast cancer. Avoiding meat, fish, milk and eggs and eating a vegetarian organic diet rich in coloured fruits,vegetables, nuts and seeds with intermittent fasting has helped many patients to overcome cancer as well as other chronic diseases. Nutritional requirements of the patien will be always taken care while prescribing the diet.
