Why Alternative Cancer Treatment?

Our treatment program is designed to stimulate your immune system to recognize and destroy cancer cells in combination with natural, non-invasive, effective therapies that will take advantage of cancer cells' weaknesses.

Brio Medical's natural treatment approach offers patients a holistic way to heal the mind, body, and spirit, using proven non-toxic therapies to target cancer cells while providing essential immune system support. Whether you are searching for a natural cancer treatments plan, a way to rebuild your body after chemotherapy or radiation, an adjunct to traditional natural cancer treatments, or are looking to obtain optimal health to help prevent cancer, Brio Medical has an Intensive Integrative Oncology that will treat cancer naturally with non-toxic therapies.

Our alternative or integrative cancer therapies are much safer than traditional treatments such as full-dose chemotherapy and radiation because the body is exposed to much less toxicity. Licensed physicians who hold themselves to the highest medical and ethical standards perform all treatments, including the intersection of conventional and alternative cancer treatments such as those we offer at Brio Medical.

A majority of the cancer patients that Brio Medical treats respond well to our therapies, and report improvements in their prognosis. This including a variety of cancer patients who have all types and stages of cancer that we treat, as well as patients who have already undergone conventional oncology treatments such as surgery, radiation, and/or chemotherapy. 

Dependent on the state of the patient's health when they arrive at the clinic, the effectiveness can vary greatly, particularly based on how suppressed the patient's immune system may be from toxic treatments such as chemotherapy and radiation. 

With decades of experience treating breast, prostate, lung, pancreatic, and all other types of cancers in all stages we can create a personalized treatment program based on clinical testing and your medical history. You can count on the expertise of our specialists in cancer at Brio Medical

After signing up to speak with a patient care coordinator, you will schedule a time to speak with Dr. Cheryl Kolin, NMD, who has been working with cancer patients for nearly two decades. 

After your initial consultation, the doctor will work to give you the relaxing healing experience and the personalized treatment you need in conjunction with the beautiful and peaceful desert and scenic views in Scottsdale, Arizona. All types of cancer can be treated with our multi-disciplinary approach to healing metastatic cancer.

In conventional oncology, the concept of making the body less toxic, improving diet and nutrition, and regulating the immune system while treating the malignancy is still widely regarded as an unessential aspect of oncology treatment protocols. The belief that medication alone can and should reverse disease and cure a patient without consideration of the body’s own defense and recovery systems still dominates the medical mentality of conventional oncologists throughout the world of Western Medicine.

In standard oncology, there is no treatment that is not deleterious to the immune system or the overall host defense of the patient. In our concept, the foundation of any form of therapy should be the restoration of the biological capabilities of the host with specific emphasis on the immune system.

Given chemotherapy to a patient who recently underwent surgery will only worsen their appetite, strength, and well-being, reducing defense systems and the chances of a successful outcome. In standard radiotherapy programs, statistics show that the higher the dose of radiation, the higher the tumoral response.

However, the same statistics prove that higher doses do not necessarily mean longer survival. This means that we must strike a balance between how aggressively we attack the tumor and how much support we give the body or at least how much assault our biological systems can endure. A healthy body with an intact defense system does not develop cancer. So, the mere fact that cancer is present denotes a failure, mutation, or biological change important enough to trigger such a diagnosis.

If we continue to follow the concept that the elimination of the tumor mass brings cure, we will continue to see the recurrence of cancer – which is one of the consistent outcomes of conventional oncology.

The fact is that when a breast tumor, for example, is removed we could still be far from solving the problem. So, the lump is not the disease – and that should be an important conclusion. By lengthening and enhancing tumor control through human immune/defense systems while remaining completely free of side effects over long periods of use, this is the most nature-similar way of controlling malignant growths.

The backbone of the Brio Medical cancer treatment protocol is awakening the immune system and reprogramming it to fight naturally. We want to strengthen your immune system by detoxing your body of heavy metals with chelation therapy, replenishing vitamin and mineral deficiencies with nutritional IV therapy, and a variety of other treatments to help jumpstart your body's immune system.

Dr. Cheryl Kollin is a licensed Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine in Tempe, AZ. Dr. Kollin (pronounced Kohl-leen) earned her doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine from Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine.

She has more than 15 years of experience in cancer treatments and research.  Dr. Kollin is originally from California where she did cancer research at Rational Therapeutics in Long Beach with the world-renowned oncologist, Dr. Robert Nagourney MD. She published a number of abstracts on the use of chemosensitivity testing using primary human tumor spheroids.

Dr. Kollin takes a comprehensive approach to cancer treatment since the etiology of cancer is not always apparent. Her treatment strategy is to boost the immune system, detoxify the body, and remove deleterious heavy metals by using IV therapies and supplements. The goal is to stop making new tumors, to eliminate the present tumor burden in the body by targeting the cancer cells 24/7, and to strengthen the immune system to fight off the resistant cancer cells and enhancing mind-body awareness.

Dr. Kollin also holds a Master’s Degree in Human Nutrition from the University of Bridgeport, CT, and is a Certified Clinical Nutritionist (CCN) and Licensed Clinical Laboratory Scientist (CLS).

The Brio-Medical Story

The philosophy behind the Brio-Care System is the synergistic intersection of alternative and conventional medicine based on the principle that a healthy body does not develop the disease with an intact immune defense system.

We believe that healthcare for each person is unique, and the approach to maintaining and improving health and healing should be holistic, treating the mind, body, and spirit. Our approach seeks to restore and strengthen the biological capacities of the body to renew, repair, and heal, with specific emphasis on the immune system.  Our treatments are designed to “kick start” self-renewal and healing.

Finding Brio was an answer to prayer and I’m so glad I went. I believe it’s really helped me along in my cancer healing journey. They opened my understanding to whole new aspect of healing in regards to our electrical system and how it can make or break us. The owners passion and love for people really came out in our daily interactions. They have the latest technology for alternative cancer treatment, and the combination of their many state-of-art cancer therapies makes Brio powerful cancer killing clinic.

Positive. It was so refreshing to receive such joyful care in relaxed confidence while in the midst of a very trying, stressful season of life.

I saw Dr. Kollin for cancer prevention. In 2014 I had pain on the left side which occasionally radiated to my left breast. Ultrasound showed nothing but fibrous breasts. The origin of the pain could never be pinpointed. She had me apply a lotion to my torso daily. After a few months, I began to have eruptions under the left breast and increased the lotion applications as instructed. The eruptions progressed, the pain on the left side increased. After 4 months the eruptions stopped and the skin healed. The pain on the left side is gone. Follow up u/s has shown that the breasts are no longer fibrous. Incidentally, they are no longer tender when menstruating. I am so thankful for dr. Kollin. She listened and supported me. She is truly caring.
