Marbella: Leading Cancer Treatment Destination12-11-2016
Marbella-based companies present integrative therapy concept against cancer.
At the end of October, Hospital Ceram and Immucura Med invited physicians (health service companies) and health professionals to a congress for an integrative therapy concept against cancer, which focuses on widening already existing common therapy concepts. Johannes Schumacher, director of Immucura Med, presented the 7th International Cancer Forum Marbella as a benchmark for innovation.
The head of a German laboratory, Jörn Steiger, made the start and lectured about the promising immune therapy with autologous dendritic cells – also known as cancer vaccine, which meanwhile has been implemented in various clinical trials against many types of cancer. In his speech, he explained how dendritic cells support the body to fight the cancer and about the different ways dendritic cell therapy can be applicate and combined with common cancer treatments. “The cancer vaccine can be produced in one week”. Mr. Steiger further stated what many scientists confirmed in their reports: “Dendritic cells create good results and have no serious side effects”.
Dr. Juan Martinez-Canca achieved therapy results by adding hyperthermia to the integrative therapy concept. As cancer cells can't grow above normal body temperature, hyperthermia heats up the affected areas of the body for a limited time and kills cancer cells as well as improves the outcomes of chemotherapy and radiation therapy.
Psychotherapist and nutritionist Anna Iourenkova explained what influence the right mindset, motivation, and the will for living has on the well-being of a cancer patient. In her work with cancer patients, Iourenkova scrutinises the actual psychological impact of the disease on the patient as well the long-term mental conditions that might favourite the occurence of cancer. “With hypnosis, it is possible to program and accelerate the process of self-healing or to improve acceptance of treatment by the body, to reduce side effects. The human mind is capable of doing miracles inside the body if the person really believes in it.”
In her speech on nutrition, she mentioned the latest research on cancer-fighting foods. On the other hand, she explained what benefit fasting can have on your body and, in particular, on cancer cells.
Fasting can change certain processes in the body. Especially, a decrease in the sugar level through fasting would cut off the energy source of the energy-absorbing cancer cells. “Fasting can help cancer patients, though it is important to discuss fasting with your oncologist.”
The director of Ceram in Marbella, Dr. Hugo Benito, not only opened the doors of the exceptional hospital to the visitors of the 7th Cancer Forum International, but also to physicians to accommodate their patients in a modern and comfortable facility.
Johannes Schumacher, the director of Immucura: “Immucura is the first provider of dendritic cell therapy in Spain apart from clinical studies. This gives a lot of hope for patients even with a bad prognosis”. His team is open to give free consultations prior to further medical examinations.
