Most cancer patients in the advanced stages suffer from a wasting syndrome which is called cachexia. Scientific research has demonstrated that a variety of conditions can benefit from the use of IV nutrition, among them especially cancer.
intravenous Nutritional Protocols
The comprehensive Issels Treatment program integrates a variety of intravenous nutritional protocols according to individual requirements. They include: In this page and the links provide the biggest encyclopedia of all cancer treatments on the web this encyclopedia is free and safe for home use for any stage cancer patients.
- IV Vitamin C (IVC) - Vitamin C has been shown by
researchers of the National Institutes of Health to kill cancer cells if
administered intravenously in high doses. It is proven to be beneficial in
the treatment of a variety of diseases from the common cold to the flu, and
from hepatitis to HIV.
- IV Antioxidants -
Substances such as
glutathione can be administered to help counteract the effects of
free radicals and also to promote effective detoxification through the
liver. Maintaining healthy antioxidant levels is important in any disease
state and especially indicated in cancer.
- IV Amino Acids - these are the "building blocks" of the body. Besides building cells and repairing tissue, they form antibodies to combat invading bacteria & viruses; they are part of the enzyme & hormonal system; carry oxygen throughout the body and participate in muscle activity.
Laetrile, also called Amygdalin and Vitamin B17 is a natural substance that is found in over 1,200 plants, particularly in the seeds of common fruits such as apricots, peaches, plums and apples.
It is a diglucoside with a cyanide radical that is highly "bio-accessible." It penetrates through the cellular membrane, reaching high intra-cellular concentrations easily. In high doses this cyanide radical can be toxic. However, for therapeutical purposes laetrile is administered in very low doses and is “neutralized” by the enzyme rhodenase present in healthy cells of our body. This enzyme prevents the laetrile from releasing cyanide. In this case laetrile serves as glucose to healthy cells, which provides energy when metabolized.
Malignant cells do not contain the rhodenase enzyme. In the absence of rhodenase, laetrile is activated and the cyanide radical is released within malignant cells and has shown to contribute to tumor destruction.
An additional benefit of laetrile therapy is the following: As laetrile attacks unhealthy cells, it transforms into a salicilate like aspirin and contributes to pain control.
Research studies suggest that laetrile affects cancerous cells and leaves normal cells unharmed. During many years of clinical experience laetrile has been shown to have anti-cancer properties without the toxic side effects typically encountered with chemotherapy.
Personalized treatment protocols of the Issels Treatment Center integrate laetrile when indicated.
