About breast cancer

Breast cancer is the second most common cancer among American women, only behind skin cancer. About 250,000 women in the United States are diagnosed each year.

Breast cancer can develop from cells in either the ducts or lobes, but ductal tumors are more common. The cells acquire mutations that cause them to divide too rapidly or survive too long.

As breast cells acquire more mutations, they begin to look less normal under a microscope. They can divide quickly and are less likely to die when normal cells would. Over time, they form a mass or tumor.

Women with a family history of breast cancer are at increased risk. Having a first-degree relative diagnosed with breast cancer can increase the risk two- to four-fold.

Signs and Symptoms

Some women have signs and symptoms of breast cancer before diagnosis. Breast cancer can change how the breast or nipple feels. The most common symptom is a lump in the breast or in the armpit. Lumps in the upper, outer quadrant of the breast are most common.

Instead of a lump, women may feel swelling, tenderness, or thickening.

Cancer may also change the texture of the skin covering the breast. The pores may become enlarged. Cancer can also cause dimpling, swelling, or shrinking of the breast. Occasionally, women may notice a discharge from their nipples.

Many women may not have any of these signs or symptoms before breast cancer diagnosis, and their cancer is detected during a routine mammogram.

Types of breast cancer

There are different clinical types of breast cancer:

  • Inflammatory: synchronous, metachronous,
  • Morphological: ductal, lobular, metaplasic
  • Immunohistochemical: triple negative, positive hormone receptors, Her 2 positive

Breast Cancer Diagnosis

Diagnostic methods include:

  • Physical and exploratory exam of the breasts.
  • Mammography detects structural abnormalities of the tissue to evaluate its characteristics in greater detail.
  • Ultrasound uses sound waves to produce images of deep structures and evaluate whether the breast nodule is a solid mass or a benign lesion.
  • Biopsy is the only definitive way to make a diagnosis of breast cancer. And it is necessary to know precisely the characteristics of the tumor.
  • MRI is used for special clinical conditions and does not use radiation to create images of breast tissue.

Holistic medicine for Breast Cancer

Integrative interventions improve the body’s ability to fight this disease and manage side effects of conventional treatments.

Nutrition, proper supplementation and the use of innovative therapies such as Autologous cellular therapies, systemic perfusion hyperthermia and the use of dendritic enhancer treatments put our patients on the right path to healing.

Integrative cancer therapies are used to support and enhance the effects of primary cancer therapies in eradicating or reducing cancer’s burden on the body, and to help prevent cancer recurrence and increase survival

Some of the most common integrative treatments used when treating breast cancer patients are:


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.
