      Patient Learning about Natural Compounds for Cancer Treatment

      We believe in a holistic and comprehensive approach to the treatment of cancer, which includes conventional therapies like chemotherapy, radiation, and immunotherapy. However, those alone are not the best approach for a successful outcome.

      Cancer is a systemic disease, which affects all the systems in the body, therefore a comprehensive and integrative approach is the most beneficial when it comes to both survival, as well as reducing residual side effects.


      There are numerous natural compounds that have been shown to have anti-cancer and immune-boosting effects, based on their biological mechanisms, as well as scientific studies. However, when one is undergoing chemotherapy, radiation, and/or immunotherapy, there are certain natural compounds that one should not take.

      The natural compounds that we use at the Kellman Wellness Center are based on your particular needs. We create an individualized program based on your diagnosis, your health, and your need. 

      We also use medications that are safe, some of which have been repurposed for their anti-cancer effects. Their efficacy with regard to cancer treatment is documented and validated by research.

      By understanding the mechanisms of cancer, we use natural compounds to starve cancer cells, thereby inhibiting metastatic growth, as well as enhancing the effectiveness of more conventional therapies, such as chemotherapy and radiation. In addition, we utilize compounds that heal the gut and rebalance the microbiome.

      Some compounds we use:

      • High dose IV vitamin C, which has an anti-cancer effect, while at the same time naturally boosting the immune system.
      • IV phenylbutyrate, which has anti-cancer effects similar to chemotherapy drugs. It is also a d-acetylase inhibitor, but since it is a natural compound, it has none of the negative and all of the positive effects.
      • Further, we use repurposed drugs like metformin, rapamycin, dipyridamole, chloroquine, lovastatin, doxycycline, cimetidine, as well as other compounds to create an effective and comprehensive approach to treating cancer.

      In addition to targeting cancer itself, we also focus on reducing or eliminating some of the common symptoms that many patients experience while undergoing chemotherapy, radiation, and immunotherapy. These include things like “chemo brain,” nausea/vomiting, neuropathy (i.e., tingling and numbness), etc. Dysbiosis of the gut can lead to inflammation, as well as damage to the gut lining. Undigested particles can leak out of the gut and into the bloodstream causing an immune response, also known as “leaky gut”. This can cause brain fog, neuropathy, as well as many other symptoms. By ensuring a balanced microbiome and a strong, healthy gut wall, we can heal these symptoms and boost the immune system.
