Kotsanis Institute Alternative Cancer Treatments

At Kotsanis institute we offer gentle alternative cancer treatments which improve quality of life. Some of our patients combine these therapies with conventional treatment and others prefer to use them instead of conventional treatment. Some of these therapies can also be used before conventional treatment to strengthen the immune system or after conventional cancer treatment to help repair and support the immune system, rebuild strength and prevent relapse. A list of therapies follows along with a brief explanation of each. Treatments can be used alone or combined for a more aggressive approach.

Insulin Potentiation Therapy (IPT)

What is it?

This is a form of low dose chemotherapy which has been around for over 70 years. It was invented in Mexico and one doctor in the US began using it in 1975. In the year 2001 he and the inventor’s grandson decided to start teaching it to other doctors. This is when Dr. Kotsanis was first trained. He now trains other doctors on the procedure.

How it Works

Cancer cells thrive on sugar. In order for any cell to absorb sugar, insulin is required. Insulin is the key that opens the lock on the cell to allow sugar to pass through. The locks on the cell surface are called insulin receptors. Cancer cells have developed a very simple but effective strategy which allows them to get more of the available sugar than their neighbors, the non-cancerous cells. They simply have many more insulin receptors than non-cancerous cells. Having many more receptors, cancer cells are able to bind and use more of the available insulin than healthy cells. So whether one eats a banana or a candy bar, the cancer is fed first and the healthy cells get only the leftovers.

Comments

IPT has fewer side effects than full dose chemotherapy because it uses only 10%-15% of the standard dose. The insulin is the Trojan horse that gets the chemo into the cells.


 Oxidative Medicine

What is it?

Oxidative medicine uses oxygen in various forms to hyper oxygenate tissues.

How it Works

Cancer cells have an anaerobic metabolism. This means they do not need oxygen to survive.   In the presence of oxygen they become weaker.

Comments

There are many different oxidative therapies.

 Oxidative Medicine Ozone

What is it?

Ozone (O3) is a form of oxygen which has three molecules instead of two. Oxidation is good when it occurs in harmful foreign organisms that have invaded the body. Ozone inactivates many disease bacteria and viruses.

How it Works

Oxygen and ozone therapies are thought to benefit patients in the following ways:

  • stimulating white blood cell production
  • killing viruses
  • improving the delivery of oxygen from the blood stream to the tissues of the body
  • speeding up the breakdown of petrochemicals
  • increasing the production of interferon and tumor necrosis factor, thus helping the body to fight infections and cancers
  • increasing the efficiency of antioxidant enzymes
  • increasing the flexibility and efficiency of the membranes of red blood cells
  • speeding up the citric acid cycle, which in turn stimulates the body’s basic metabolism

Comments

  • Ozone therapy can be administered in a variety of ways.
  • Intramuscular injection
  • Insufflation (rectal, vaginal or ear)
  • With procaine into joints or tendons for pain and sports injuries
  • Ozone can be bubbled through water and the water used to cleanse wounds
  • Ozone can be bubbled through olive oil and the oil can then be used to treat fungal infections, insect bites, acne, wounds and other skin problems
  • Autohemotherapy is where peripheral blood is taken, mixed with ozone and reinfused into the patient

 IV Vitamin C

What is it?

High doses of vitamin C are delivered intravenously in the clinic.

How it Works

University of Kansas Medical Center scientists have determined that high doses of vitamin C, administered intravenously with traditional chemotherapy helped kill cancer cells while reducing the toxic effects of chemotherapy for some cancer patients.They evaluated the therapy in cells, animals, and humans. Researchers found that a combination of infused vitamin C and conventional chemo drugs carboplatin and paclitaxel stopped ovarian cancer in the laboratory, and reduced chemotherapy-associated toxicity in patients with ovarian cancer. The study has been published in the journal Science Translational Medicine.

In other studies, tests of the effect of IVC on pro-inflammatory cytokines demonstrated that inflammation cytokines IL-1α, IL-2, IL-8, TNF-α, chemokine eotaxin and CRP were reduced significantly after treatment.

Comments

The universal scurvy that is seen in patients with cancer, which presents a constellation of symptoms, including fatigue, easy bruising, poor appetite, insomnia, and alower threshold for pain, seems to be reduced in the presence of IVC.

At Kotsanis Institute we can combine vitamin C with IPT low dose chemotherapy.   Although some patients prefer no chemotherapy at all and then combine vitamin C with some of the other treatments such as PEMF, ozone, sauna and oral enzyme therapy. Vitamin C is anti-inflammatory.


 Poly MVA

What is it?

Poly-MVA is a liquid dietary supplement that contains various minerals, B complex vitamins, palladium, amino acids and lipoic acid. The “MVA” stands for minerals, vitamins, and amino acids.

How it Works

Poly-MVA is a uniquely formulated nutritional supplement containing a proprietary blend of Palladium and alpha-lipoic Acid (which we refer to as LAPd), Vitamins B1, B2 and B12, Formylmethionine, Acetyl Cystiene, and trace amounts of Molybdinum, Rhodium, and Ruthenium. It is designed to provide energy for the compromised body systems by changing the electrical potential of human cells. In other words, it increases cellular energy levels, thus increasing the charge density of DNA within the cell. This supports normal cell function and works against abnormal cell function.   (accessed 8-18-2014 at cancertutor.com)

Comments

If patients elect to do a Poly MVA course of treatment it is recommended as part of a well-orchestrated plan. We believe Poly MVA is a supportive therapy.


Nutritional IV Cancer Therapy

What is it?

This is a method of immunotherapy.

How it Works

The rationale for this treatment is based on the principle that the host’s immune system is capable of generating immune responses against tumor specific antigens. The role of Natural Killer Cells (NKC) is to eliminate solid tumors and circulating metastatic cells through their cytotoxicity and cytokine production.

Comments

This treatment plan requires that the patient be present five days a week in the clinic.


 Pulsed Electromagnetic Fields (PEMF)

What is it?

PEMF therapy recharges your cells by pulsing energy through the body. This recharges your battery in a manner of speaking.

How it Works

Magnetic fields affect the nervous and circulatory systems of every living cell. When your cells are sick, they lose energy. As a result, there is not enough ATP, and the cell’s ability to carry out its work is compromised. PEMF restores the energy so that cells can get back to normal function.

Comments

PEMF should be a part of a larger treatment plan customized to each patient. It can be used alongside any other treatment to keep the body energized.   A treatment lasts anywhere from 10 to 30 minutes and can be done as often as feasible to your schedule.


 Enzyme Therapy (Oral)

What is it?

An enzyme is a substance produced by a living organism that acts as a catalyst to bring about a specific biochemical reaction.

How it Works

The enzymes we use in the case of cancer patients are proteolytic. This means they break down the proteins on the surface of the cancer cells so that the immune system can “see” the cancer.

Comments

This treatment can be done at home because it is a matter of taking enzymes as supplements.
