Diseases We Treat: Breast Cancer

Understanding, Diagnosing, and Treating Breast Cancer Holistically

About Breast Cancer

Breast cancer stands as the second most prevalent cancer among women in the United States, surpassed only by skin cancer. Each year, approximately 250,000 American women are diagnosed with this disease. This type of cancer primarily develops from cells in the ducts or lobes of the breast, with ductal tumors being more common. These cells undergo mutations, causing them to divide excessively or survive longer than normal, eventually forming a mass or tumor. Women with a family history of breast cancer are at a heightened risk, with a first-degree relative’s diagnosis potentially quadrupling the risk.

Signs and Symptoms

Breast cancer can manifest through various signs and symptoms, including changes in the breast or nipple’s texture and appearance. The most common symptom is a lump in the breast or armpit, particularly in the upper outer quadrant of the breast. Other symptoms can include swelling, tenderness, or skin texture changes. Some women may experience nipple discharge. However, many women do not exhibit any of these signs before diagnosis, and their cancer is detected during a routine mammogram.

Types of Breast Cancer

Breast cancer can be categorized into different clinical types, including:

  • Inflammatory: synchronous, metachronous
  • Morphological: ductal, lobular, metaplastic
  • Immunohistochemical: triple-negative, hormone receptor-positive, Her 2 positive

Breast Cancer Diagnosis

The diagnostic process for breast cancer involves various methods such as:

  • Physical and Exploratory Exam: A thorough examination of the breasts to detect any abnormalities.
  • Mammography: This technique identifies tissue abnormalities by evaluating their detailed characteristics.
  • Ultrasound: Utilizes sound waves to create images of deep structures and assess whether a breast nodule is a solid mass or a benign lesion.
  • Biopsy: The only definitive method to diagnose breast cancer, helping to understand the tumor’s precise characteristics.
  • MRI: Employed for special clinical conditions, it creates images of breast tissue without using radiation.

Holistic Medicine for Breast Cancer

At our institute, we employ integrative interventions to bolster the body’s ability to combat breast cancer and manage the side effects of conventional treatments. These interventions encompass proper nutrition, supplementation, and innovative therapies such as:

  • Autologous Cellular Therapies
  • Systemic Perfusion Hyperthermia
  • Dendritic Enhancer Treatments

These therapies facilitate the patient’s journey towards healing by supporting and enhancing the primary cancer therapies’ effects, preventing cancer recurrence, and increasing survival rates.

Common Integrative Treatments

Some of the prevalent integrative treatments used in treating breast cancer patients include:

  • Immunotherapy: Aims to enhance the body’s natural ability to detect and eliminate cancer cells by stimulating the immune system’s natural defenses and providing new avenues to attack cancer. This includes pharmacological immunotherapy, which utilizes drugs to stimulate the immune system to work harder or smarter to attack cancer cells.
  • Dendritic Enhancer: Utilizes T-cell modulators to educate the immune cells to recognize specific antigens, like malignant breast cells, enhancing the immune system’s strategies against cancer.
  • Hyperthermia: Directly treats a tumor using heat or increases the vulnerability of cancer cells to other treatments such as immunotherapy, B17, vitamin C, chemotherapy, or radiotherapy.
  • Glutathione: A vital antioxidant that prevents cellular damage and plays a significant role in removing and detoxifying carcinogens.
  • Selenium: An essential mineral that plays a critical role in maintaining a healthy immune system. It has been found to have potential protective effects against certain cancers, including breast cancer, by reducing oxidative stress and inflammation, which are linked to cancer development.
  • Nutrition: A customized diet plan to enhance the immune system’s healing ability and cater to the patient’s current and long-term nutritional needs.
  • Vitamins and Supplements: Including vitamin C, which has been shown to reduce the risk of breast cancer recurrence and mortality.

Through our holistic approach, we strive to put our patients on the path to healing, offering them a beacon of hope and a chance for a healthier future.


The goal of cancer immunotherapy is to improve the body’s natural ability to find and destroy cancer cells. Successful immunotherapeutic approaches stimulate the natural defenses of the immune system and provide new ways to attack cancer. This is possible with comprehensive interventions that include cell therapy / immuno-pharmacological therapy in combination with nutritional, endocrine measures and supplements.

Dendritic enhancer or T-cell modulators

T-cell Modulators are peptide chains composed of tens of amino acids that appear to store all the experience of the immune system. The great intellectual leap to understand is that T-cell Modulators do not transfer antibodies nor create them directly, but its function is to educate, and teach the immune cells to recognize specific antigens that could happen to them unnoticed i.e. Breast malignant cells.

T-cell Modulators do not cure anything but work to make a “smarter” immune system so that it is the body itself eliminating disease. They are therefore vital in developing the strategies of the immune system against cancer.

T-cell Modulators contains several immunoactive components that have been shown to act synergistically in raising Dendritic and NK function and also effective as adjuvant therapy in Breast cancer treatments, elevating dendritic and NK function as much as 250%.


Hyperthermia involves the use of heat to directly treat a tumor or increase the vulnerability of cancer cells to other forms of treatment, such as immunotherapy, B17, vitamin C, chemotherapy or radiotherapy.

In a group of patients with superficial breast cancer and chest wall recurrence, the addition of hyperthermia to their treatment increased local tumor eradication, and recurrence.

Liposomal Mistletoe

Mistletoe helps fight tumor-induced immune suppression. Natural killer cells (NK) are a type of white blood cell that looks for and destroys breast cancer cells. Research has shown that NK cells can spontaneously recognize and kill a variety of breast cancer cells.

Mistletoe has been called a “biological response modifier” due to its ability to improve various aspects of immune function. Studies show that it activates natural killer cells, T cells, macrophages and monocytes.

A special proprietary form of liposomal mistletoe created with nanotechnology has been created for use in our breast cancer treatment approach.


Glutathione is the most important antioxidant produced by your body and a master detoxifier of every cell in your body. It prevents cellular damage caused by free radicals and peroxides.

Glutathione metabolism is able to play both protective and pathogenic roles. It is crucial in the removal and detoxification of carcinogens, and alterations in this pathway can have a profound effect on cell survival. However, by conferring resistance to a number of chemotherapeutic drugs, elevated levels of glutathione in tumor cells are able to protect such cells

Personalized nutrition

A typical diet, characterized by dependence on animal products, refined carbohydrates and unhealthy fats such as processed vegetable oils, can promote an inflammatory environment in the body. A pro-inflammatory diet has been associated with an increased risk of breast cancer and an increased risk of death from breast cancer.

We custom-make a diet targeted to enhance the immune system’s ability to heal and provide our patients with the right nutrition for their current and long-term needs.

Vitamins and supplements

Breast cancer patients who take supplemental vitamins, including vitamin C, are 22% less likely to have a recurrence of breast cancer after treatment than those who do not take supplements. Women who take vitamin C after diagnosis are 15% less likely to die of the disease than those who do not take the supplement.


In one study, selenium levels were measured in the blood of 546 patients with a recent diagnosis of breast cancer. Women with the lowest levels of selenium were more than twice as likely to die during the five-year follow-up than women with the highest levels. A second study found that breast cancer patients with high dietary selenium intake were significantly less likely to die from the disease.

We use intravenous selenium as part of our breast cancer treatment approach.
