About Uterine Cancer

Uterine cancer is the most common gynecologic cancer. Uterine cancer rates are highest among black women and are increasing among all women, especially black women. Uterine cancer happens when normal cells in the uterus change into abnormal cells and grow out of control. The uterus (also called the womb) is the part of a woman’s body that holds a baby if she is pregnant. The uterus has a thin inner lining layer and a thick outer layer.

There are different types of uterine cancer, but most uterine cancer starts in cells in the thin inner lining. Uterine cancer can occur in women of any age, but is much more common in women who have gone through menopause. Menopause is the time in a woman’s life when she stops having menstrual periods.


The most common symptom of uterine cancer is abnormal vaginal bleeding. Abnormal vaginal bleeding includes:

  • Bleeding in between menstrual cycles (at times other than during a period)
  • Menstrual bleeding that is heavier than usual
  • Any vaginal bleeding in a woman who has already gone through menopause

These symptoms can be caused by conditions that are not cancer. But if you have these symptoms, tell your doctor or nurse.

Conventional Treatment

Most women with uterine cancer have surgery to remove the uterus, ovaries, and the tubes connecting the ovaries to the uterus (fallopian tubes). During surgery, the doctor will also check the area and organs around the uterus to see if the cancer has spread. He or she might remove other organs that look abnormal.

Some women will not need further treatment after surgery if surgery removes the cancer. But other women might need further treatment with one or both of the following:

  • Chemotherapy – Chemotherapy is the medical term for medicines that kill cancer cells or stop them from growing.
  • Radiation therapy – Radiation kills cancer cells. Radiation can be given from a machine that is outside the body. Or a doctor can put a source of radiation directly into the vagina.

After treatment, patients will be checked every so often to see if the cancer comes back. A doctor or nurse will ask you symptoms and do an exam. Follow-up tests can include blood tests and imaging tests such as X-rays. Imaging tests create pictures of the inside of the body.

Integrative medicine for Uterine Cancer


The goal of cancer immunotherapy is to improve the body 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.

Cancer vaccines deliver a cancer-specific protein to the body and direct the immune system to target cells that contain that protein.

Chimeric antigen receptor (CAR)-modified T-cell immunotherapy involves taking the patient’s T cells, genetically engineering the T cells to produce receptors that direct them to the cancer cells, and returning these CAR T cells to the patient’s body (NCI 2017b).

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

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.


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, vitamin C, chemotherapy or radiotherapy.

Non-ablative or mild hyperthermia (HT) has been shown in preclinical and clinical studies as a localized sensitizer that enhances the tumoricidal effects of immunetherapy, radiation or chemotherapy.

A novel, minimally invasive interventional technique, HT has been suggested to improve the efficacy of chemotherapy for solid organ tumors.

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 uterine  cancer cells.

Mistletoe preparations such as Iscador are commonly used in complementary medication for many cancer indications, particularly solid cancers. An effect of long-term Iscador therapy on tumor progression was not seen. In conclusion mistletoe may have the effect of prolonging overall survival of cervical cancer patients.


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.

Intracellular glutathione (GSH) has been shown to play an important role in modulating the cellular response to many cytotoxic agents, including radiation and chemotherapeutic drugs.

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.

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.

Vitamin D

Based on different studies and reviews, it appears that vitamin D may reduce the risk of uterine cancer. Vitamin D has been shown to block the growth of cancer tumors. Vitamin D is processed by the liver. The body then produces calcitriol, an active form of vitamin D. Calcitriol provides numerous benefits against cancer. This form of vitamin D encourages cells to either adapt to their organ or commit apoptosis (cell suicide). Calcitriol also limits blood supply to the tumor and reduces the spread of cancer.


Melatonin, a hormone best known for its role in regulating sleep, is also emerging as a promising anti-cancer agent. Evidence to date has shown that melatonin can interfere with cancer initiation, progression, and metastasis.

Melatonin has anti-tumor activity via several mechanisms including its anti-proliferative and pro apoptotic effects as well as its potent pro-oxidant action in tumor cells.

Fish Oil and Omega-3 Fatty Acids

These fatty acids have many health benefits and may even slow the growth of prostate cancer. In laboratory and animal studies, omega-3 fatty acids were found to inhibit inflammation, interfere with blood vessel growth in tumors, and cause cancer cells to die.

The omega-3-fatty acids, found in fish oils from cold water fish, such as salmon and cod, inhibit proliferation and metastasis of many cancerous cells such as malignant breast cells, In cell culture, we determined that the omega-3-fatty acid, DHA, not only caused growth arrest of pre-cancerous cells (keratinocytes immortalized by the highly oncogenic HPV16) but also growth inhibition of keratinocytes from benign tumors with an HPV etiology.

Curcumin Liposomal

Curcumin, a carotenoid pigment extracted from the spice turmeric, has well-established anti inflammatory and oxidative stress-reducing effects. Cervical cancer is one of the most common cancers among women worldwide. Curcumin (CUR) is a well-known natural compound, which exhibits excellent anti-cancer potential by regulating many proliferative, oncogenic, and chemo resistance associated genes/proteins.
