History of Cancer

Cancer is the second leading cause of death in the world after cardiovascular diseases. Half of men and one third of women in the United States will develop cancer during their lifetimes. Today, millions of cancer people extend their life due to early identification and treatment. Cancer is not a new disease and has afflicted people throughout the world. The word cancer came from a Greek words karkinos to describe carcinoma tumors by a physician Hippocrates (460–370 B.C), but he was not the first to discover this disease. Some of the earliest evidence of human bone cancer was found in mummies in ancient Egypt and in ancient manuscripts dates about 1600 B.C.

Active Cancer

Cancer does not discriminate where or when it will start in the body. Cancer cells grow out of control and crowd out normal cells when the body’s immune system has become compromised and burdened with various toxins. Thus making it difficult for the body to function properly. Cancer does not merely consist of one disease. There various types of cancer that afflict the body. Cancer can start in the lungs, breast, colon, even blood. Cancers are similar in some ways, but different in the ways they grow and spread. Some types of cancer cells often travel to other parts of the body through blood circulation or lymph vessels (metastasis), where they begin to grow and compromise vital functions.

Treating cancer by addressing the 7 toxicities and utilizing the 5 step nontraditional approach allows individuals to explore options other than cut, burn, poison. By addressing the three foundations of systemic detoxification, immune modulation and physiological optimization the body can do what it was innately designed to do, heal thy self. 

Three of the main toxicities that contribute to cancer CFAM addresses to help the body transform back into vitality include heavy  metals, persistent organic pollutants (chemicals) and opportunistics (bacteria, viruses, fungus, yeast). By eliminating these contributing factors the body can recharge and create an environment hostile to cancer proliferation.

According to the Diabetic Research foundation, diabetes afflicts up to 422 million people worldwide. The CDC claims, as of 2015, 30.3 million people in the United States, or 9.4 percent of the population, had diabetes. More than 1 in 4 of them didn’t know they had the disease. Diabetes affects 1 in 4 people over the age of 65. About 90-95 percent of cases in adults are type 2 diabetes.

Diabetes is the major contributing factor in the nations aliments of blindness, kidney failure, amputations, heart failure and stroke. Genetics, lifestyle and environment can be causes of diabetes. Eating an unhealthy diet, being overweight or obese and not exercising enough may play a role in developing diabetes, particularly Type 2 diabetes. Type 1 diabetes is caused by an autoimmune response. The body’s immune system attacks and destroys the insulin producing beta cells in the pancreas.

Studies have shown how heavy metals contribute to overall immune compromise and adverse health effects. Heavy metals accumulate in organ tissues inducing chronic toxicities leading to conditions such as diabetes. Numerous studies have shown how Arsenic and other heavy metals contribute to the deterioration of immune response and contribute to numerous health risks such as diabetes.

In 2018, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued their ADDM autism prevalence report. The report concluded that the prevalence of autism had risen to 1 in every 59 births in the United States – twice as great as the 2004 rate of 1 in 125 – and almost 1 in 54 boys. 

Treating autism is no different than treating any other aliment. Understanding the contributing factors to the development of autism leads to effective, efficient ways of eliminating the toxic burden. Heavy metals along with gastrointestinal imbalances lead to significant oxidative stressors and neurological deficits.  By removing these toxins and reconfiguring the physiological environment the child’s development is able to take the path destined for them.

HIV stands for human immunodeficiency virus. HIV compromises a person's immune system and weakens it by destroying important cells that fight disease and infection.  According to CDC's latest statistics, 29,782 people were diagnosed with HIV in 2016 contributing to the 1.1 million people in the United States living with HIV today.  Unfortunately, 1 in 7 are unaware they are infected.  With an estimated 38,500. new HIV infections in 2015 and the number of deaths related to HIV amounting to 6,465 in 2015, measures need to be taken to address this viral burden on the immune system.  

The general population is usually only aware of the treatment modalities traditional medicine have to offer regarding antiretroviral therapy (ART).  Gaining the proper knowledge and understanding of how vital removing toxicities playes in overall immune support enhances an individual's ability to heal and repair the damaged cells that fight HIV. At the Centers for Advanced Medicine, we address the 3 key foundations in overall immune system optimization.  These foundations of systemic detoxification, immune modulation and physiological optimization involved removing the 7 toxicities known to compromise/hinder the immune system's ability to function properly.  Heavy metals and opportunistic infections are 2 of the 7 toxicities that are known to hinder the body's ability to heal and repair.  Thus further deteriorating the already compromised immune state in an HIV individual leading to the development of AIDS and a multitude of other complications.  By alleviating these toxic burdens the immune system is able to rebuild and repair cellular damage.  Promoting the best possible outcome for the HIV individual.
