Breast cancer

Breast cancer is the most common type of cancer in women. In the past, this usually meant that the affected person was forced to undergo radical surgery, i.e. breast amputation, extensive removal of the lymph nodes (so-called node curettage of the armpit) as well as chemotherapy or radiotherapy as supplementary or subsequent treatment, or even as a preventative measure. A procedure as radical as this not only has devastating physical side-effects, ranging from serious damage to the immune system to lymphatic oedema, but also severe psychic effects and suffering of the soul.

For this reason many places have long since moved to more cautious methods. This is particularly true in the case of breast-conserving operations. However, where lymph node curettage and the use of chemotherapy and radiation are concerned, the radical course of treatment is still chosen extremely often.

In keeping with our view of cancer as a disease of the whole person and our maxim "Above all, do no harm", we recommend gentle treatment for our patients. Our cancer therapy patients do not need to fear radical surgery. Our aim is to act as effectively as possible, but at the same time as gently as possible.

In terms of diagnosis results, we are naturally guided by the results supplied to us by the patient from the general practitioner or specialist doctor, e.g. mammograms and blood values. However, we consider the careful tactile examination of the breast over a period of time to be the most important diagnosis method. We do not recommend biopsies, i.e. surgical sampling, due to the increased risk of metastasis. Removal of the entire node, where histological examination provides a clear indication of a possible malignancy, is less problematic than damage caused by the biopsy, where millions of cancerous cells can enter the bloodstream, even if the utmost care is taken.

Where an operation is indicated, we usually prepare the patient by means of one to two weeks of therapy where high doses of buserelin in particular, and where necessary, local thermotherapy achieve a reduction in the size of the node in most cases.This allows us to surgically remove tumorous tissue without having to cut deeply into healthy tissue.

Naturally, we implement strict control of the lymph nodes at risk before and during the operation, while removing only those that have changed due to disease. This allows us to reduce or void postoperative lymphostasis. We perform 90% of excision operations under local anaesthetic. This is more gentle on the cardiovascular system and ensures that treatment is pain-free, or at least causes only minimal pain.

However, surgery is only a part of our overall strategy in the case of breast cancer. Repeated treatment weeks using buserelin therapy in particular, but also a range of natural remedies, serve to track down cancerous cells that remain hidden, and are intended to allow the immune system to permanently maintain the organism in balance.

Prostate cancer treatment without surgery

Prostate cancer is one of the most common types of cancer in men.We consider non-aggressive diagnosis methods such as tactile examination of the rectum, imaging procedures as well as determination of the PSA value (Prostate-Specific Antigen) in the blood to be completely adequate.

Conventional medicine usually prescribes a biopsy (surgically removed sample) immediately after a suspicious tactile finding. This appears to be understandable in terms of the requirement for diagnostic certainty. , we generally discourage this practice. We believe that a biopsy is extremely risky, as this seemingly small surgical intervention carries an extremely high risk that millions of cancerous cells will be released into the bloodstream and will encourage the formation of metastases, apart from any other complications. Although the possibility of dispersion is still controversial, we do not wish to take this risk in cases of doubt.

A suspicious tactile result and a correspondingly high PSA value, together with demonstrable anatomic changes by means of ultrasound, MRT or other device should permit the doctor or patient to deduce the presence of cancer and to suggest commencing with effective therapy. Where doubt still exists, progress monitoring - usually over three months - provides the necessary certainty without precious treatment time being wasted, in our experience. This observation usually provides information as to whether this prostate carcinoma is aless aggressive, "quiet" cancer, which only grows extremely slowly (or possibly no longer at all) and, in our experience, can therefore often be easily kept in check over many years or decades.

Conventional medicine prescribes radical removal of the prostate gland as the method of choice for the treatment of prostate cancer that is not yet advanced. This often leads one to the vain hope of being rid of this cancer "for once and for all". This assumption is often false, as the cancer is not a disease of the prostate, but rather a malfunction of the entire body. Despite surgery, the danger of recidivism and/or formation of metastases constantly exists. In addition, radical surgical intervention is often followed by a variety of distressing side-effects such as urinary incontinence and impotence. Why then should somebody take these risks - which are in no proportion to an uncertain benefit?

For our prostate cancer patients, we recommend a gentle treatment WITHOUT SURGERY, with few side-effects. In our evaluation, this consists particularly of a naturopathic complex program , , local or regional thermotherapy, measures to increase the circulation as well as buserelin therapy - the main pillar of our treatment concept. The complex approach to cancer normally has an effect after only a short period of time - the palpable nodes become smaller or disappear completely. At the same time, the PSA value is significantly reduced. The occurrence of cancer is suppressed.

This process ensures that the patient's quality of life is only limited during the application of buserelin, and even here, only to a manageable extent. The return to normal hormone production after termination of medication ensures that the few side-effects also disappear again. At the same time, this inhibits a habituation effect. Regular follow-up examinations (tactile examination and PSA value) ensure that we are able to combat a recurrence of the cancer in good time. We have had a great deal of success with this procedure over many years.

Benign prostate disorders

Benign enlargement of the prostate gland (prostate -hypertrophy, prostate adenoma) is a growth in the interior prostate gland. On its own, the appearance of this disease, particularly at an advanced age, would be harmless if the male urethra did not pass through the prostate gland. A growth in this gland constricts this canal, often leading to unpleasant, painful and sometimes dangerous consequences.

The constriction of the urethra makes emptying of the bladder more difficult. The bladder muscles, which by now are already weakened, have difficulty in contracting and literally become increasingly tired and less likely to execute their functions up to the "projected" end. The urine flow becomes thinner, dribbling occurs, and -most alarmingly - the volume remaining in the bladder after urination (residual urine) increases. This leads not only to more frequent pressure to urinate, as a signal is triggered at a particular level to visit the toilet. Eventually, when the bladder is too full, the danger of accumulation in the kidneys exists, resulting in possible permanent damage to these sensitive organs, with potentially fatal effects. Although this scenario is often far off, one should never lose sight of the possible and often real chain of consequences, and guard against its occurrence.

It is definitely possible to take action oneself when these disorders occur initially. Ensure that you pass urine regularly and slightly more often, and after every visit to the toilet try to coax one or two "repeats" after you finish urinating, to retain as little urine as possible. It is also possible to aid the relaxation of the bladder area by using a sit bath and a good old-fashioned hot water bottle. In addition, a variety of vegetable substances such as saw palmetto and pumpkin seed preparations are available, although these have limited effect. Urologists are increasingly prescribing Proscar, which does indeed often lead to a reduction in size of the prostate gland, or Omnic or Alna, which relax the musculature of the prostate gland, thereby relieving the passage of urine.

Where these remedies are unsuccessful, conventional medicine recommends surgical intervention, either in the form of transurethral resection (TUR) - an extension of the urethra by means of electrical scraping, or in advanced cases even the complete curettage of the interior gland by means of open surgery. Although TUR is relatively non-invasive in comparison to the latter intervention, the interior closing muscle is also removed in the procedure.

By contrast, we recommend that patients of ours who have been advised to undergo surgery of this nature rather consider a laser OP, which generally does not have the same side-effects and risks of the procedure described above. The constricted prostate urethra is "lasered free" under visual control, as in a bladder examination with local anaesthetic. This allows both the seminal hillock and both closing muscles to be accurately bypassed and unaffected. After wearing a permanent catheter for a few days, and once the relatively small volume of blood flow has stopped, the entire episode can be put behind one - sometimes even for life. Should the urethra become constricted again in time, which could also occur after TUR, the intervention can easily be repeated.
