Toxic burden, Stress and Circadian rhythm (our
inner `clock').
Together, these make up what I have
coined as the `Terrain Ten' TM. Exploration of these
underlying imbalances, by looking into personal
and family history, trauma and toxic exposures,
diet and lifestyle, through Single Nucleotide
Polymorphisms (SNP pronounced `snips') analysis,
terrain testing, etc, helps to prioritise where to start,
as this process is often overwhelming.
Statistically, those who have undergone
cancer treatment have a 70% likelihood of having
a recurrence. And those that have had cancer and
cancer treatment also have a higher rate of having a
brand new cancer (up 300% since the 1970s), thanks
to the damaging impact on the mitochondria
of previous cancer therapies. In my opinion, it is
malpractice not to do everything we can to explore
and support the biochemistry of the terrain through
an individual and targeted approach.
Therapies such as
Mistletoe (aka Viscum Album Extract), used
since 1917
High Dose IV Vitamin C, since the 1970s
Cannabis, which has a 3000+ year-old history
and was included in US Pharmacopeia until the
The Ketogenic Diet in use since the 1920s
Hyperthermia/fever therapy, which dates
back to Hippocrates in ancient times, Coley (of
Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Centre in the
early 20th c) and Mayo (as in Mayo clinic) into
the 1940s
are but a few examples of old therapies that have
shown promise in supporting recovery from cancer.
The common theme of these therapies is their
gentle, yet powerful, impact on restoring terrain
rhythm and balance to the whole organism, often
bringing synergy to other more toxic therapies,
and even shown in some cases to cause successful
response on their own. And, the most important
aspect of an integrative approach is restoring
health to the mitochondria - the energy-producing
organelles - as when they thrive, all disease,
including cancer, is kept at bay.
There is no such thing as a single target and
treatment for cancer. There is no magic bullet.
We have to do all we can to avoid becoming just
another `doom and gloom' statistic. Integrative
Oncology offers such hope. Sometimes we cure,
sometimes we stabilise, and sometimes we help
people live more fully into dying. Most importantly,
I have seen what was once a death sentence morph
into a long-term maintenance process, in thousands
of people - people thriving with cancer, not merely

There is an incredible fact
