Alternative cancer treatments are natural non-invasive treatments that respect the integrity of normal cells and destroy cancer cells only. At the Hawaii Naturopathic Retreat Center we combine several cancer treatments for their synergetic action. Some of these treatments such as the Gerson Therapy work to strengthen and balance the immune system and take some time to be effective while other treatments, such as High Dose Vitamin C intravenous therapy, target cancer cells safely and work right away to decrease tumor load, allowing time for the nutritional program to work. And other treatments such as Iscador do both.

It is important to understand that unlike chemotherapy, radiation and surgery, these treatments involve lifestyle changes to be continued indefinitely and require full patient participation. To this intent an important part of our alternative cancer treatment program is educative and provide psychological support to ease the transition to a better diet and positive thinking.

Our Comprehensive Cancer Treatment Combines:

Psychology
The ultimate driver of our life is the mind and the mind needs to be healed even more than the body. Perseverance, strength and a will to live is paramount. Believing in your healing and treatment is crucial. Learn to transform anxiety, sleep deprivation, oxidative stress, depression and worry. Think positive and create your own reality. Choose hope.

Detoxification
Detoxification includes avoidance of environmental toxins and removal of stored toxins. Stored toxins include environmental chemicals but also products secreted by tumors and tumor breakdown products. The process consists of removing from body tissues, molecules that do not belong, carcinogenic compounds, chemicals and heavy metals.

Nutrition
The Gerson diet seeks to regenerate the body to health by flooding the body daily with nutrients from about 20 pounds of organically grown fresh vegetables in the form of juices. 
As a result of detoxification and increased oxygenation, cellular regeneration of all organs occurs, in particular that of the liver, and the immune system is restored to its optimal function.

We prescribe therapeutic doses of: melatonin, artemisinin, B17/Laetrile, Curcumin, enzymes,vitamin D, MCP powder. We also prescribe dietary supplementation for any secondary medical condition.

Oxygenation
Oxygen is imperative in building and sustaining healthy cells. We increase the delivery of oxygen to the cells in various ways: practicing deep breathing, hydrogen peroxide baths combined with hyperthermia treatment sessions, providing ample essential fatty acids in the diet and gentle rebounding exercises.

IV Therapy
Vitamin C, glutathione and nutrients are administered intravenously. Large doses of intravenous vitamin C have a pro-oxidative effect. It produces hydrogen peroxide that kills cancer cells. Glutathione is of paramount importance to fight cancer and also improves side effects from radiation and chemotherapy.

Iscador Therapy
Iscador is an herbal cancer treatment made from fermented European mistletoe. Studies have shown it stimulates the immune system, inhibits the growth of cancer cells, reduces the size of tumors, improves quality of life, lessens tumor pain, lessens chemo- and radiotherapy side-effect, lifts depressive moods.

Meditation
There is a fast growing interest in the health benefits of mind/body interventions like relaxation and meditation. Biomedical research is showing strong evidence of the interconnectedness of the mind and body, including that stress makes the body less effective at fighting the growth of malignant tumors.
