Cancer Adjunctive Program

Cancer / Adjunctive Program

Adjunctive Cancer Therapies at The Kellman Wellness Center

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 always 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 often the most beneficial.

Dr. Kellman’s strategy is two-pronged

Choke the Cancer! 

Cancer has historically been seen as a disease of dysfunctional proliferation; however recent research has now shown that metabolic disorders also contribute to cancer growth. Otto Warburg showed that the metabolism and energy consumption of tumor cells varied greatly compared to non-cancerous cells. By targeting the metabolism of these cancer cells, we are effectively able to starve them, thereby killing them and reducing metastases.

Enhance the Efficacy of Concurrent Treatments

Conventional therapies are a highly valuable and central component of successful cancer treatment. However, there are medicinal herbs, therapeutic botanicals and other compounds which can enhance the efficacy of these treatments.

Dr. Kellman’s expertise in using these herbs in the right combination and in the right way is why his adjunctive program is so successful. Although there are many supplements, botanicals, herbs, and other natural compounds which are widely available and generally safe in healthy individuals, some of these can be contraindicated when you are dealing with cancer patients and their associated treatments. It is critical to work with someone who has the experience and research-based knowledge on what to use and when. Dr. Kellman works in conjunction with his patients’ oncologists and other members of their health care teams to ensure they are working cohesively toward their one goal, that of remission.

NATURAL COMPOUNDS FOR CANCER TREATMENT

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. 

 

The natural compounds that we use at the Kellman Wellness Center are based on your particular needs. Our focus is on an individualized and personalized approach to medicine when it comes to our anti-cancer treatments. 

 

Some of the compounds are administered orally, while many are administered as IV therapy. 

 

In addition to natural compounds, we also use off-label medications that are safe, and extremely beneficial for their anti-cancer effects. Although used off label, their efficacy with regard to cancer treatment is documented and validated by research.

 

Our approach using these adjunctive treatments aims to accomplish a number of things.

 

By understanding the mechanisms of cancer, we use these natural compounds to accomplish many things:

  • To starve cancer cells, thereby inhibiting metastatic growth

  • To enhance the effectiveness of more conventional therapies, such as chemotherapy and radiation 

  • Heal the gut and rebalance the microbiome

Some of the compounds we use include:

  • High dose IV vitamin C, which has an anti-cancer effect, while at the same time naturally boosts 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.

  • 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. Repurposed drugs are medications which may have been developed to treat one condition, however, may also be effective at treating others, like cancer. These drugs have already been rigorously tested and known to be safe.

  • IV Curcumin, which has been shown to not only improve the efficacy of conventional cancer treatments, like chemotherapy, but also aid in the reduction of side effects.

  • IV Therapies may be combined with Ozone, which has been shown to boost oxygen levels in the blood, which naturally enhances the body’s innate ability to fight off cancer cells.

  • Therapeutic herbs, botanical, phytonutrients, and other natural compounds which directly target and halt the metabolism of cancer cells. 

  • IV Curcumin, which has been shown to not only improve the efficacy of conventional cancer treatments, like chemotherapy, but also aid in the reduction of side effects.

  • IV Therapies may be combined with Ozone, which has been shown to boost oxygen levels in the blood, which naturally enhances the body’s innate ability to fight off cancer cells.

  • Therapeutic herbs, botanical, phytonutrients, and other natural compounds which directly target and halt the metabolism of cancer cells.

In addition to targeting the cancer itself, we also focus on reducing or eliminating some of the common symptoms that many patients experience while undergoing chemotherapy, radiation and immunotherapy, such as:

⦿ “Chemo brain” 

⦿ Nausea/vomiting

⦿ Neuropathy (tingling and numbness)

We accomplish this through the use of a variety of natural compounds, which can safely be used during treatment. Many cancer treatments, while lifesaving, can wreak havoc on the body and in many cases damage healthy tissue, as collateral damage to kill off cancer cells. This is particularly true with regard to damage done to the gut microbiome.

 

The trillions of bacteria that reside in our gut play a vital role in maintaining a healthy gut wall, a strong immune system, as well as proper brain function. 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.

 

We have had many patients that have gone through our program and have seen a significant benefit.

Even while going through chemotherapy, radiation, and other therapies concurrently, their energy remained good, side effects were reduced and many experienced significantly fewer residual symptoms and complications post treatment.
