Cancer Q & A

What are the benefits of cancer surveillance and prevention?

If you have a high risk of certain types of cancer or are recovering from a particular kind of cancer, the keys to remaining healthy are cancer surveillance and preventative medicine. Certain lab tests can identify cancer cells in their earliest stages, giving you a head start on treatment if abnormalities are discovered.

If you're recovering from cancer, it's essential that you take preventative measures to ensure you remain in good health. This can mean eating a healthier diet, exercising regularly, and receiving IV therapy or vitamin injections that can boost your immune system and give it the tools it needs to keep cancer at bay.

How does IV therapy help?

While IV therapy may not cure cancer, it can help the body receive the nutrients it needs in a timely fashion. Nutrients that are received through an IV are also more potent than those that are utilized through the digestive tract. The harsh acids in the stomach and intestines can damage or destroy many nutrients the body receives.

When nutrients are administered through an IV, the reaction is immediate. The IV sends them directly to the bloodstream where they are distributed throughout the body while still in their most potent state. IV therapy ensures that the nutrients get to where they need to be in the shortest amount of time possible. This strengthens and supports the entire body from the cells all the way up to the major organs.

What are possible treatment options?

If Dr. Gastellum discovers cancer, she refers you to an oncologist. She continues to work hand in hand with them to provide you with the natural therapies that are beneficial when it comes to supporting the immune system.

IV therapy, vitamin injections, and supplements are just a few of the supplemental cancer treatment options she can offer.

Blending both conventional treatment methods and natural therapies is the best way to provide you the highest quality of care possible. Dr. Gastellum often recommends cannabis oil, viscum album, and low dose naltrexone when treating or assisting in the recovery of various types of cancers.

It's essential for you to schedule a consultation with Dr. Gastellum if you have any questions about the treatment options she offers.
