At Hope, we aggressively explore tests and therapies that have been proven safe and effective from other countries though they may not have received US FDA approval. As an example of tests used, Hope frequently receives reports from Research Genetic Cancer Centre which we refer to as "The Greek Test". A sample of the patient's blood is shipped overnight to Greece, where the lab determines if your blood contains circulating tumor cells. If cancerous cells are present, the lab cultures them and places them in 38 different wells in order to determine which botanicals (aloe vera, Vitamin C, mistletoe, etc.) the cancer cells are sensitive. They also place the cancerous cells in 70 different wells and check the cancer cells against various chemotherapies to check for sensitivity.
See example of The Greek Test Botanical Report and Chemotherapies Report.
A high degree of success can be achieved at Hope, since we look for causes of disease rather than just treating symptoms. We have seen many instances in which focal infections stemming from root canals or from infections from previously extracted teeth sockets known as cavitations have suppressed the patient's immune system creating an environment in which disease can flourish. In other instances, we have found that heavy metals such as mercury from dental amalgams aka "silver fillings", or from other sources such as lead, cadimium, arsenic and antimony etc. can contribute to the establishment of a disease condition.
In the spirit of our philosophy, all of our treatments incorporate as much natural healing as possible. At Hope, we perform a variety of therapies, with each having a specific objective in mind.
Below are descriptions of some of our most used therapies and treatments, simply use the links to the side to access them quickly.
Hyper Cellular Respiration Therapy (HCRT):
A little background will help set the stage for understanding Hope's treatment regimen. In the 1930s Dr. Otto Warburg, a German Physicist, was awarded the Nobel Prize for his work in the area of Cancer. Dr. Warburg reported that normal human cells subjected to a diminished oxygen environment would mutate to become cancer cells. If the same cells were then subjected to an abundant oxygen environment, they would revert back to normal cells! This was earth-shaking news, and spawned a great deal of research into the role of oxygen in degenerative diseases.
Most of the work until recently has focused on increasing the oxygen level in the blood (temporarily) to help kill pathogens such as bacteria, virus, cancer, etc. This has proven to be a valuable tool for many practitioners. Hope's staff has used many techniques to increase the oxygen level in the tissues, but only recently has our staff uncovered some revolutionary aspects to the oxygen therapies that radically improve its effectiveness.
Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2):
According to Dr. William Campbell Douglass, author of "Hydrogen Peroxide -- The Forgotten Miracle." written in 1966, "Not only is Hydrogen Peroxide -H2O2 involved in phagocytosis (killing and absorption of foreign germs), but also "it acts like insulin in that it aids the transport of sugar through the body." Is is also at least as important, or perhaps more so, than thyroid for heat generation because it creates "intraceullar thermogenesis, a warming of your cells which is absolutely essential to life's processes."
Various physicians, including some of our referral physicians, also use hydrogen peroxide therapy for various ailments. Physicians have independently discovered such treatments to be effective against some types of cancer, leukemia, arthritis, coronary heart disease, arterial circulation disorders, colitis, gum diseases, and assorted children's diseases."
Hope has effectively and safely utilized Hydrogen Peroxide for many years for the treatment of numerous conditions and diseases.
Ozone water, provides a remarkable boost to total system oxygenation, as well as natural and rapid detoxification. Ozone rapidly oxidizes toxins and aids in the elimination of wastes.
For thousands of years, magnets have been used to aid in healing and for creating a state of well being. One of Hope's most beneficial devices is a 10,000 gauss uni-directional magnet. Possibly one of the strongest magnets in Northern America, this magnet has helped numerous patients heal from fractures, congestive heart failure, cancer and cartilage injuries, etc. Magnetic therapy helps oxygenate tissue by increasing circulation. Increased circulation and oxygenation helps alkalize the tissue.
Below is an excerpt from "Conquering Pain, The "Art of Healing With Biomagnetism" by the author Peter Kulish, Senior Scientist of The Magnetizer Group, Inc., BioMagnetic Laboratories.
The evidence is in and has been around for a long time and can be found in the teachings at all medical universities. The cytoplasm (inside), quantifiably the largest part of a healthy cell, measured at rest, has a negative charge potential. When stressed or traumatized, the cell (now measured positively potentiated or with a loss of its negative charge value) sends an ascending signal through the nervous system to the brain which in turn, sends the descending signal to flood negative healing charges to the cell (s) to get them back to their normal negative charge potential (homeostasis). That is how the body’s basic defense and healing system works – naturally sending negative charges to the affected area. All of these measurements have been conducted years ago on the body with a very expensive mico-voltmeter known as a Squid (Super Conducting Quantum Interference Device).
What else do the negative charges do - Trappe et al. showed the reduction of cancer cells under a negative magnetic field and a very aggressive proliferation with the positive magnetic pole. Dr. Becker et al. (University of Massachusetts) showed that a healing site always goes negative once the healing starts. Starting in the 1930’s, Davis et al. conducted so many experiments which have been duplicated so many times, that he is considered the worldwide founder of the different biological pole effects. His experiments essentially provided the original physical precepts about scientific magnetic healing. He found the negative pole provided the calm electrical atmosphere that promoted healing which was later identified to mimic and amplify the body’s natural defense system. He also found the positive field stimulates metabolism which often interferes with the flood of negative charges and stresses the healing site, which in turn, floods the area with more negative energy. Simple to understand – a doctor prescribes cold for swelling, never heat. This is not to say the positive pole should never be used. The positive pole, when used in conjunction with the negative pole, has been found to be necessary in specific treatment modalities when instituting specialized circuits to initiate re-growth of cartilage or breached nerve or bone unions. On the proper location (s), it can potentiate nerve cells and vitalize weak, nerve pathways, which in turn, elevates the healing message (s) from the brain to the affected areas. It also can reset and amplify the proper current flows in the body as taught in Ayurvedic medicine, Reike, Shiatsu, Acupuncture, Kinesiology, Reflexology, Jin Shin Jyutsu, and is now being used, studied and taught by contemporary medical scientists and practitioners.
Bio Electro Magnetic Energy Regulation (BEMER)
It is well documented that cancer cells love tissue where there is lack of oxygen, which also turns the tissue PH acidic. Tissue that lacks adequate oxygen induces the production of lactic acid, which causes pain. In addition, a low oxygen environment causes signaling to the brain that more blood vessels are needed in this area. This signal is known as Hypoxia Inducing Factor (HIF). When HIF is present, it results in a growth factor being up-regulated (vascular endothelial growth factor - VEGF), which encourages the growth of new blood vessels to cancer cells. This is how tumors grow!
A major goal for body wellness is to oxygenate your tissues, which helps bring the PH back to a more alkaline state. One device used at Hope to help achieve this state is the BEMER. Used in many European cancer clinics and other clinics around the world, the BEMER is a mat that you lay on to help energize each of your billion cells. The BEMER's patented wave length generates an electro magnetic pulse that mimics the earth's magnetic pulses, which is one source of energy we need to exist.
Unlike electrical lines, electrical appliances and cell phones, etc., that create chaotic wave lengths or high frequencies that are very damaging to human tissue, the BEMER's frequency is orderly, very low and is less than the intensity you receive from the earth's magnetic force. It is well documented that the earth's magnetic field is weakening, so the BEMER supplements the energy we should be receiving from the earth. This increases blood flow to your tissues by as much as 15%, and improves micro-circulation by 19%. When tissue starts getting oxygen, toxins are carried out. Cancer and pathogens can not live in an oxygenated environment so the body can start the healing process.
Sodium Bi-carbonate Therapy (Alkalinization)
In this video, Doug Kaufman with Know the Cause interviews Italian Oncologist Dr. Tullio Simoncini -- the author of "Cancer is a Fungus". Dr. Simoncini shares his views on a much different way to cure cancer.
Hope aims to tackle disease from every angle. One of those angles when dealing with cancer is through Sodium Bicarbonate Therapy. Sodium Bicarbonate Therapy was developed by Dr. Tullio Simoncini an Italian doctor who specializes in the treatment of cancer, diabetes, and other metabolic disorders. After years of scientific and clinical research, Dr. Simoncini discovered that in the myriad of cancer-causing factors, a common fungus, Candida albicans, is the common denominator of every cancerous tumor. Therefore, killing the fungus is often successful in the treatment of cancer. Hope also uses the Sodium Bicarbonate to alkalinize the tissues of the body to create a more favorable healing environment.
Sodium bicarbonate is a powerful, readily available antifungal. Other antifungals are not as powerful, but sodium bicarbonate is potent enough to penetrate tumors, which are essentially deep tissue fungal infections. Fungi are smart – they are extremely adaptable and aggressive. However, sodium bicarbonate rapidly disintegrates tumors - too quickly for fungus to adapt and resist treatment. Therapy is intense, strong, and fast, applying the sodium bicarbonate directly to the blood supply that nourishes the tumor. The intensity leaves the fungi no time to develop its defenses against treatment. Another benefit of sodium bicarbonate, as opposed to traditional cancer treatments such as radiation and chemotherapy is its lack of serious side effects, with the only commonly reported side effects being thirst and temporary tiredness. See www.cancerfungus.com,
Phospholipids such as Phosphocholine, Phosphoserine and Phosphoethenolamine are used to dissolve artheroscleorotic lesions (plaque). and to remove fat soluble toxins from the body. This is essential in restoring normal neurological functions.
Low dose Naltrexone
Recent research in the cardiology field has now shown that the rate of atherosclerosis has increased dramatically to the extent that the 40% of men at age 40 now have some degree of arterial occlusion. Many people discover they suffer from atherosclerosis when they exhibit symptoms of heart problems. Most patients will be given an EKG Stress test or Nuclear Stress test to determine their heart condition. What many people don't know is that you can pass a stress test with 80 to 90+% blockage. You pass the test and you think everything is fine when it's not. One of Hope's affiliated partners is ViaScan of Los Colinas. ViaScan provides full body scans utilizing an Electron Beam Tomography (EBT) scanner that can detect arterial blockage, gall stones, kidney stones, cancer, aneurysms etc. The EBT scanner subjects patients to 90% less radiation than most multi-sliced CT scanners, which is extremely beneficial to cancer patients who should be very conscientious about any unnecessary expose to radiation.
At Hope, our Super Chelation treatments are very effective in gently removing the calcium deposits from the artery wall. In addition Super Chelation not only works both inside the cell and outside the cell, unlike conventional chelation which only works outside the cell.
When we speak of atherosclerosis we generally think of large arteries being blocked leading to heart attacks and stroke, but it is only logical to think that if the large arteries are affected, the smaller arteries (arterioles) would be also. Because of their microscopic size it would be difficult to see such occlusions with conventional testing but the lack of blood flow to the tissue is equally as damaging. Chelation helps to dissolve the blockage of these microscopic occlusions thus helping to deliver oxygen to the tissues in hopes of preventing heart attacks or strokes.
It has long been known that certain plant substances known as phyto-chemicals have a positive influence on the immune system. We utilize many different herbs and herbal compounds to help detoxify, heal and promote healthy cell tissue growth.
Enzymes are the proteins that catalyze chemical reactions in the body.
Hope uses a variety of proteolytic enzymes to inhibit hyper coagulation (thick blood) and enzymes to increase metabolic function. We also use enzymes to help to accelerate the digestion of dead tumor cells.
Fighting disease takes a lot of energy. This is a commodity that most patients fighting a disease need in abundance. Hope recommends a strict yet delicious diet that contains zero artificial anything, and zero sugar or grains. There are many recipes available that utilize nut flours like pecan and almond that make wonderful breads and deserts, and use natural sweeteners like honey or Stevia. We also incorporate the most up to date nutritional products to increase the body's energy level, thus helping the immune system win its battle!
Given that 80% of our immune system stems from our digestive tract, Hope uses various tests to determine current gastro-intestinal (GI) health. Most Americans are "deathly deficient" in enzymes and stomach acid. Many advertisements have claimed acid reflux disease is the result of too much stomach acid. Hope's experience has been that it is actually too little stomach acid that is the problem. Most patients do not have enough stomach acid to sterilize their food and to liberate the nutrients in the food, thus leading to malnutrition, bloating, constipation and a host of other GI tract symptoms. Many patients have been cured from their "acid reflux disease" by adding hydrochloric acid during their meals containing proteins.
In addition, many Americans have active parasitic infections in their intestines which can also cause acid reflux, asthma and allergies as well as potential bowel blockages!
We recommend that most of our patients use supplementation of digestive enzymes to aid in the digestion of their food.
Enzymes are found naturally in raw foods, but as soon as food is cooked, the biological activity of the enzyme is destroyed. Everyone is born with a certain potential for enzyme production, but as we age or as we encounter immune break downs, that production potential diminishes. In order to keep the body functioning properly, enzymes must be supplemented, especially when the body is attacked by a disease.
Glyphosate, the key ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide, is the most widely used herbicide in the world. Its residues are found in water and soil. It’s sprayed along roadsides, sidewalks, parks and playgrounds, gardens, and on school grounds. Testing shows a variety of foods contain glyphosate. It has been detected in the urine of the majority of people who have submitted samples for testing. Glyphosate has been found in breast milk, it damages the placenta and it crosses the placenta, which may result in birth defects.
Stress reduction is a huge factor in boosting the immune system. Massage is an excellent tool to help relax tissue to increase blood flow. With increased blood flow, tissue experiences an increase of oxygenation, which is conducive to a more alkaline environment, while also aiding in the removal of toxins. A licensed massage therapist is on staff at Hope, and is available if massage is prescribed as part of your treatment plan.
For patients who may not be comfortable with full body massage or who may have peripheral circulation issues, reflexology foot massages are also available.
Massage therapy is well documented to stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system. The parasympathetic nervous system is essential to normal immune function.
