Breast Cancer Prognosis

Breast cancer prognosis is a much misunderstood and misused term.

Breast cancer prognosis is a much misunderstood and misused term. Prognosis itself is a medical word used for predicting the likely outcome of one’s current diagnosis. It is, at best, an educated guess.

So, if your doctor gave you a “prognosis,” it sounds scary. What you really want right now is some concrete information, instead of numbers and percentages.

What you need to know is that there are choices for you. You do not have to do the triad of chemo, radiation and surgery, which is what most doctors tell you are the only way to go.

There are therapies being used in other parts of the world that have been found to be effective but are being ignored in most parts of this country. In Nevada, we are able to offer these therapies and people do not have to leave the country to receive them.

For example, Reno Integrative Medical Center’s goal is to not only eliminate cancer, but to also end up with a healthy patient when it is all over.

One of the tools used to reach that goal is Insulin Potentiated Therapy. This treatment utilizes the cancers’ greater need for sugar as a weapon against it. It is done by dropping blood sugar to a point where the cancer is weaker, and then being able to target those cancer cells with different compounds that are deadly to them but do not affect normal cells.

Ultraviolet blood irradiation (recognized by the FDA) is another therapy used to kill cancer cells, and it boosts the strength of the immune system by exposing a blood sample to ultraviolet lights. This treatment was developed in the United States in the 1920s, but it has been ignored in favor of high priced drugs because no one can patent ultraviolet light.

GcMAF (macrophage activating factor) and TCRP (T-cell rich plasma) are two types of immune therapies used to strengthen the immune system and “decloak” the cancer cells.

No two cancers are alike, just as no two patients are alike. There are many non-physical factors that will impact the outcome for any given patient. These subconscious attitudes/beliefs can assist the healing, or interfere with it.

Dr. Gerhard Hamer, of Germany, has a theory that cancer develops after a person experiences an unexpected severe emotional/psychological “conflict/shock” that can trigger the start of cancer in the tissue.

It is for this reason I tell patients that my two foundational principles are: 1) There is no such thing as “false hope,” and 2) The time to give up hope is AFTER you take your last breath! I have seen people recover from Stage 4 disease and they are alive and healthy today.

This is why the official prognosis (educated guess) carries very little weight with me.
