The Treatment of Cancer and Other Health Catastrophes
Cancer is very different ‘beast’ to other chronic diseases in the minds of people and healthcare professionals alike; heart disease claims more lives, yet it induces far less fear and trauma. Lack of understanding about the causes and drivers of cancer contributes to this fear, as does confusion and uncertainty about treatment options.
Conventional approaches to the ‘war against cancer’ have focused on a ‘cut, poison and burn’ approach via surgery, chemotherapy and radiation, with no regard to the body’s innate intelligence, protective defences and capacity to heal.
You do not ‘catch’ cancer; rather it is a chronic disease that develops over time – a systemic disorder that can be influenced by diet, lifestyle and environmental factors. Research and clinical experience has shown us that a more holistic approach may result in improved chemotherapy responses, reduce mortality and improve quality of life.
This is the imperative of a holistic approach to health restoration. Rather than identifying a disease by its presenting symptoms or ‘label’ alone, we attempt to address the driving factors that have pushed the body out of balance and caused – in the case of cancer – a catastrophic loss in self regulation. It is pure folly to expect restoration of health in a body already diseased by further burdening it with treatment that would make well people sick!
From a functional perspective, the end result is that we support and improve the quality of life on so many levels that your body is in the best possible position to re-establish order and take care of the rest – even cancer. It’s about getting under your personal ‘threshold of reactivity’, tipping the balance of scales back in your favour and keeping them there.
Clarity and Common Sense
At Core Naturopathics, we suggest that the best care plan for chronic health challenges requires a multidisciplinary approach which incorporates the skills of your GP, specialist, surgeon, counsellors and other complementary healthcare practitioners as required. This ‘team’ should work together in your best interest with the aim of improving confidence and outcomes with minimal side effects, speeding recovery times, improving sense of well-being and boosting quality of life.
The Core Naturopathics Better Health program is designed to combine all aspects of health into one simple system that guides your ‘team’ step by step. We only use methods that have been proven successful for hundreds of years and supported by cutting edge research. It is based on the deceptively simple concept that there are ‘infinite health insults’ from the world around us in terms of diet, toxins, stresses and lifestyle, but that there are a very limited range of responses in the body to those insults.
Basically, these insults lead to an over-burdening or collapse in the systems responsible for dealing with inflammation, oxidative damage, immune dysregulation and detoxification capacity. In this context disease is simply the end stage of failed adaptation to the infinite insults that life provides.
Disease, is not an inevitable state, it is what happens if we do not avoid or are over-whelmed by life’s insults and rely on our marvellous short-term adaptive capabilities for long-term management of those insults and stressors.
If you do not resupply your troops in battle they are quickly overwhelmed and can be lost. So too the cells, organs and systems of the body are unable to defend themselves and counter attack if they are not supported and resupplied in an appropriate ways.
The first phase of our program is a comprehensive evaluation that helps you to find the cause, while the second phase is designed to combine the most effective treatments from around the world into a systematic approach of reversing the causes of disease, leading to recovery and health.
Restoration of self-regulation at a cellular level is the focus of all therapy.
We provide support and advise on what to do, where to go, what tests you require, where they can get them done and help ‘decipher’ the results from a functional perspective i.e., with your current choices are you moving closer toward or further away from balance and therefore health?
Heading in the Right Direction
Perhaps the biggest advantage of the Core Naturopathic approach is that we DO NOT TREAT CANCER! Rather we boost your immune system, reduce inflammation, detoxify the body from plastics and heavy metals, support key body functions, identify and replenish nutritional deficiencies, balance hormones, teach you how to de-stress and guide you to enjoy life, find your niche and live with passion.
All forms of your existence from your life energy (Chi) to mental, emotional and physical experiences are linked by invisible strings. How you think and feel is just as important as what you feel. Here are some important questions to ask yourself:
- What does it mean to you to have Cancer, Lyme disease, CFS, MS, Autism…?
- How does it make you feel?
- What would you like to change?
- How can you make the changes you want?
- What’s holding you back?
Once we can change your mindset away from the symptom to the actual cause, you are truly empowered to help solve your health puzzle and re-gain self-confidence and trust in your own ability to heal.
Working with us at Core we aim to create trust and certainty that no essential steps will be missed in supporting your body on its journey back toward health.
Fundamental Treatment Goals
There are a number of core goals to treatment that we focus on in our program:
- Decrease pain and inflammation
- Support digestion and optimise immune function
- Maintain antioxidant system capacity
- Optimise cellular health – energy, detoxification, hydration, respiration, electrical potential
- Remove driving factors contributing to disease
- Reduce the side effects of orthodox treatment
- Prevent resistance and improve efficacy of conventional treatment
- Support mental and emotional health and improve quality of life
Combining all the concepts reviewed here we believe we are ideally placed to offer you numerous therapeutic options to support you immediately before, during and after treatment and also once in remission, to prevent recurrence. In those who are beyond human healing capacity, palliative care can also be offered.
