A Fresh Look at Chemotherapy
« on: December 10, 2021, 05:33:38 pm »
My job as a physician is to do what it takes to help my cancer patient achieve remission. For those who fear chemotherapy because of its side effects or have become discouraged by chemotherapy because it eventually stopped working, the protocol below should be considered. Due to the low dose of chemotherapy drugs used, treatment is generally well tolerated with most patients experiencing no severe side effects.

Once-a-week, in-office treatment:
• Intravenous artesunate immediately followed by…
• Intravenous high-dose vitamin C plus doxycycline and azithromycin immediately followed by…
• Intravenous chemotherapy combining 3-5 synergistic drugs used for the cancer type at 1/3 to 1/5 the normal dose. This is combined with intravenous curcumin to decrease chemoresistance and reduce chemotherapy side effects, along with hyperthermia to improve drug delivery, disable the intracellular DNA repair enzymes that allow cancer to survive chemotherapy, and induce cancer cells to release heat-shock proteins and tumor-specific antigens that attract cancer-killing tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes and Natural Killer cells.

Supporting oral protocol:
• Ivermectin and pentoxifylline to promote chemosensitivity and inhibit chemoresistance
• Piperlongumine to impair cancer’s thioredoxin and glutathione antioxidant defense mechanisms
• Luteolin to promote cell cycle arrest and apoptosis
• Metformin and syrosingopine to impair cancer bioenergetics
• Low-dose naltexone to enhance the immune response against cancer
• Pro-resolving mediators to promote the removal of tumor debris
