When I was young I used to hear people say ‘Life is not a bed of roses’, never fully understood why someone would say that as my life as a kid was full of joy and happiness until something happened that changed my perspective towards life forever.
My grandfather was diagnosed with Lung Cancer in November, 2005. I still vividly remember my mother crying as she came back from the hospital. I was still very young, couldn’t really wrap my head around the word Cancer. From then on began a silent battle which not only my grandpa but the entire family fought. He wasn’t ready to give up and his will power is something that I still recall till date. Unfortunately, he lost the battle to pneumonia and died 6 months later. This isn’t something that I experienced or is very rare, I am sure this is a story that everyone can relate to. Every 3 minutes in Ireland someone gets a cancer diagnosis. Every hour someone dies from cancer. In Ireland an average of 40,000 new cases of cancer are diagnosed each year. There are more than 200 different types of cancer. In Ireland, the most common types of cancer are prostate, colorectal and lung cancers for males, and breast, colorectal and lung cancers for females.
There are many types of cancer treatment. The types of treatment that the patient have will depend on the type of cancer and how advanced it is. Some people with cancer will have only one treatment. But most people have a combination of treatments, such as surgery with chemotherapy and/or radiation therapy. Patients may also have immunotherapy, targeted therapy, or hormone therapy. Some fighters win and some unfortunately don’t. But something that I want to mention here is that most people who die, don’t die because of cancer itself, they die of immunosuppression. Like my grandfather died of pneumonia even though the mass in his lung sufficiently decreased (from 8cm*7cm to 2cm*4cm). Never would I have imagined that even this wasn’t enough, and we had to do something more.
Chemotherapy or as a matter of fact any therapy that is used to treat Carcinomas/Sarcomas doesn’t distinguish between the cancer cells and or normal cells it just attacks the whole body. Even though the intention is to cure, the patient ends up feeling miserable. Not only that, when put on the treatment the first thing it does is immunosuppression and that leads to all the infections that an immunocompetent person wouldn’t get and for cancer patients, unfortunately that could be lethal.
The good news is we can help! We first do a full health assessment to see what does not work properly in the body and identify all the important reasons for this. We are the only Clinic in Ireland that can scan the human body for microorganisms which in cancer patients can sometimes be fatal. We offer treatments to get the body in better balance and to get the immune system to fight best. We help to optimize the activity at the very cellular level, so the cells have the capacity and strength to fight and regenerate. To help this we also provide the Oxygen water which is literally drinkable oxygen that gives the cells that extra boost to fight this hard battle. As a rule, the cancer is also associated with mental factors and old trauma, we therefore recommend mental training. The most effective is combining talk therapy with treatment in Unconscious Reactivity and the emotional panels on SCIO.
Other than all these treatments, we provide lifestyle guidance in relation to our investigations. We give the patient the hope and the will to fight and help them to be strong and in emotional balance but without losing objectivity. With the best combinations of our methodologies and technologies we try and solve the problems that takes away the body’s capacity that it needs to fight cancer.
I guess that’s the extra bit that needs to be done in combination with the treatments, if only I was a doctor then and knew all this I could’ve possibly helped my grandpa, he could’ve been alive and with me today. Only if..
