Holistic Treatment For Pancreatic Cancer in Scottsdale, AZ
Pancreatic cancer is caused by the abnormal growth of cells in the pancreas.
The pancreas is located deep inside the abdomen behind the stomach in an area called the retroperitoneum and is surrounded by the liver, spleen, small intestine, and other organs.
There are two types of glands in the pancreas: exocrine glands and endocrine glands. Exocrine glands produce pancreatic enzymes that help to digest proteins and starches. These enzymes are secreted into the pancreatic duct and empty into the first part of the small intestine, called the duodenum, when eating.
Endocrine glands (found in clusters called islets) produce insulin and other regulatory hormones. These hormones circulate through the body via the bloodstream and keep various systems in check. For example, insulin helps regulate blood sugar levels.
Pancreatic tumors can be benign (noncancerous) or malignant (cancerous). Benign tumors are generally not life-threatening and can often be removed. Malignant tumors, on the other hand, can be life-threatening, as they sometimes invade surrounding tissues and organs and can spread to distant sites in the body.
Pancreatic cancers are divided by location. Proximal pancreatic cancers are cancers that develop in the uncinate process and head of the pancreas. Distal pancreatic cancers are cancers that develop in the body and tail of the pancreas.
Pancreatic cancers can develop in both exocrine and endocrine cells. Exocrine tumors are more common than endocrine tumors (also referred to as islet cell tumors or neuroendocrine tumors).
The pancreas is an abdominal gland consisting of two major parts, thus corresponding to the two types of pancreatic cancer. The endocrine part of the pancreas produces hormones, with insulin being the most notable.
Tumors within this region of the pancreas are sometimes referred to as pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (PNETS), and may or may not cause excessive amounts of hormones such as insulin. The exocrine component is regarded for making enzymes, useful for metabolism and digestion of food. Exocrine tumors are by far the most common form of pancreatic cancer and can include quite a few specific subtypes.

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 a 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.
