Choosing your cancer treatment is an important decision. When considering chemotherapy, radiation or an alternative approach to your treatment, know your options. In our comprehensive cancer care program, we not only treat your cancer, but provide nutrition therapy and a detoxification program to build your immune system and mind/body therapies to keep you on a low stress positive mental path. For those wanting a gentler more compassionate treatment or those who are having difficulties with side effects, Dr. Kotsansis introduced Insulin Potentiation Targeted Low Dose Therapy (IPTLDSM) into our comprehensive cancer care program to give patients an alternative choice to therapy which targets and kills cancer cells and does not target healthy cells.
The Cancer Treatment Centers of America have designated Dr. Kotsanis as one of their treatment aftercare physicians.

With the integration of conventional (traditional) medicine with complementary alternative medicine (CAM, functional, alternative and nutritional) the comprehensive cancer care approach is vital to your treatment during and after, for optimal health.

Some additional symptoms of hormone imbalance are depression, anxiety, fatigue, hair loss, irritability, memory loss, mood swings, premature aging, hypoglycemia, weight gain and the list goes on.
