Intravenous Nutrient and Antioxidant Infusion Support
Often by the time the person is first diagnosed with cancer, they are already nutritionally depleted and are in a weakened state. Essential amino acids, vitamins, and nutrients are combined to help replete and bolster the body. Ingredients include vitamin C, vitamin B, magnesium, zinc, glycine, taurine, proline, glutathione, and vitamin B12. IV Antioxidants such as Alpha Lipoic Acid and Glutathione are administered to reduce inflammation and improve normal cells’ ability to fight off chemotherapeutic oxidative stress. These treatments strengthen the individual allowing them to better tolerate the burden of surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy.
Low level total body hyperthermia
This treatment utilizes a radiofrequency dome sauna to raise the core body temperature to 103.5 F. The treatment lasts three hours. A fever state produced by this treatment activates body’s natural killer cells that target cancer cells, weakness cancer cells and makes them more susceptible to the standard of care oncology treatments, while reducing their toxic side effects.
Targeted hyperthermia has been used successfully in Europe and in select integrative cancer centers in the US to reduce localized solid tumor activity and size. As an example, this treatment can be used to shrink localized breast tumors to allow for a smaller surgical resection.
Mistletoe Therapy: Subcutaneous Injection, Intravenous, and Intra Tumoral
Mistletoe from the Black Forest region contains two groups of compounds: 1.) Glycoproteins, Polypeptides, Flavonoids, and Triterpenes that both promote tumor cell death and tumor growth inhibition and 2.) Lectins that promote immune reliance and metabolic vitality.
High Dose Vitamin C
High Dose Vitamin C is administered intravenously in a range of 25-100 grams. Due to its molecular similarity to a glucose molecule, it is injected into cancer cells that, unlike normal cells, are unable to process the vitamin. This creates cancer cell weakening and the death of the cancer cell.
Nutritional Cancer Targeting Through Ketogenic Diet
Cancer cells require an enormous supply of energy to allow them to grow and spread. This energy is derived from glucose. The ketogenic diet has been shown by Valter Longo to inhibit cancer growth and weaken cancer cells.
Our team educates our clients on various stress reduction techniques including meditation and breath work. Our Brain Spa service incorporates calming intravenous infusions, virtual guided meditation, and lymphatic drainage compression leg sleeves.
Cancer diagnosis carries a heavy mental burden creating a variety of mood disorders including depression, anxiety, and PTSD. IV Ketamine has been shown to reduce these symptoms and improve coping skills. All IV Ketamine treatments are combined with ketamine-assisted psychotherapy.
Ozone therapy has been shown to improve cellular antioxidant strength, oxygenation, and energy production. As an oxidative therapy, there is also some evidence that it can contribute to inhibiting cancer growth and metabolic activity.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Coming to OWM in 2024
There is clinical evidence that hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) can both enhance the efficacy of conventional cancer therapy and reduce its side effect burden.
Photodynamic Therapy (PDT)
When used with a photosenistizer, PDT generates thermal energy that destroys cancer cells. Under ultrasound guidance fiberoptic wires can be guided directly into or close to solid tumors for tbe best therapeutic effect.
