Oncology Q & A

What is cancer?

Cancer refers to a group of conditions that have abnormal cell growth in common. These abnormal cells have the ability to invade and destroy normal, healthy tissue. Cancer is caused by changes in the genetic makeup of cells, causing them to grow at an abnormal rate, divide, and potentially spread throughout the body.

Some risk factors may predispose you to cancer growth, including:

  • Poor nutrition
  • Sedentary lifestyle
  • Smoking
  • Family history of certain cancers
  • Chronic diseases, such as ulcerative colitis
  • Excessive sun exposure
  • Unsafe sexual practices
  • Obesity

There are around 200 forms of cancer. In the United States, the most common forms of cancer include breast, lung, skin, colorectal, and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

With proper nutritional and immune system support, you may decrease your risk for cancer and place your body in a better position to fight cancer growth.

How is cancer treated?

Conventional treatments include surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation. The naturopathic medical doctors at Wdowin NMD are trained in the use of both conventional and integrative therapies, as well as cancer testing and monitoring. They work closely with your oncologist, radiologist, and surgeon to offer a treatment plan that supports the healing and elimination of cancer from your body.

Conventional treatments are focused on:

  • Slowing cell growth
  • Avoiding the spread of cancer cells
  • Protecting healthy cells and tissues
  • Eliminating cancer cells from the body

The treatment plans and cancer supportive services at Wdowin NMD can give you a greater chance of successful treatment and decrease the side effects common with conventional treatments.

What supportive services are available for cancer?

Wdowin NMD offers a range of integrative cancer supportive services combined as needed to establish an effective plan specific to you and your cancer. Integrative therapies are based on three basic objectives:

  • To cleanse the blood of toxins known to encourage cancer growth and hinder the effectiveness of treatments
  • To boost the immune system and enable prevention and defeat of cancer cells
  • To provide optimum nutrition and enhance the body’s ability to prevent and remove cancer

Dr. Wdowin and his team are committed to keeping your immune system as strong as possible for as long as possible, by offering immunotherapy, chelation therapy, stem cell IV infusions and injections, and IV nutrition.
