Integrative & Alternative Cancer Treatment
Onco-immunology is the exploding science of helping to re-engage the immune system in the battle against cancer. No severe or chronic disease can thrive in the face of a fully functional immune system and this is especially true of cancer. Many strategies are available to assist in this process including the use of cytokines (communication molecules), targeted monoclonal antibodies against the cancer, specific monoclonal antibodies to dis-inhibit the immune response and nutraceuticals to help reconstitute an effective immune response. This allows for a highly individualized integrative approach for helping people with cancer.
In patients with an auto-immune disorder, the immune system has been tricked by an antigen (usually a virus or toxin) that cross reacts with our normal tissues and triggers a response against them. The result is an immune disease that destroys normal body tissues. Our treatment strategy includes; trying to find the trigger and neutralizing it, detoxification of the by-products from the offending agent and the disease process, the use of anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatory natural medicines and helping to shift the immune system back to its normal balance thus shutting down the auto-immune process.

Ongoing advances in medicine have lead to new procedures to collect, concentrate and activate our adult stem cells and then use them in a focused way to re-ignite the repair process of chronically damaged organs, tissue structures and the immune system.
In Remission? Stay In Remission, Minimize the Risk of Recurrence
Linchitz Medical Wellness offers immune supportive therapies for people who are battling cancer. Supporting the immune system can make the critical difference in the clinical outcome of therapy. Studies show that, for many types of cancer, when you carefully combine chemotherapy with immuno-therapy that the long term outcomes are significantly improved. For patients who are already in remission, supporting the immune system can improve the length of remission. Together, both arms of the immune system play a major role in regulating the growth of cancer. With the right support, recent research demonstrates that some patients, with cancer, can mount an anti-tumor immune response that has the potential to control or eliminate cancer and is associated with improved outcomes from several tumor types
