I recently had the privilege of attending a conference in Scottsdale, Arizona where Donald Yance of the Mederi Foundation (www.mederifoundation.org), located in Ashland, Oregon, spoke about the significant efficacy of botanical and nutritional medicine, as a compelling therapy in the fight against Cancer.
He incorporates a collaborative, multi-faceted approach, known as ETMS, i.e., Eclectic Triphasic Medical System. ETMS is, essentially, an operating system which provides a framework with a highly customized protocol for each patient. It is tailored to help strengthen the patient and his/her immune system, and, simultaneously, to weaken the Cancer.
Donald Yance and his team have spent decades researching the innate properties of plants, their constituent agents, their specific phyto chemicals/nutrients and their effect, independently and synergistically, on the human body and, more specifically, Cancer.
His group treats all kinds of Cancers and has, purportedly, had excellent success with patients from all over the USA and abroad. I, in fact, interviewed a woman, 4 months ago, who was diagnosed with Breast Cancer and told by her Doctor that if she did not undergo radiation and chemotherapy, after her lumpectomy, that she would die. After doing her research, she chose to forgo chemo and radiation, and become a patient of Donald Yances clinic. That was 9 years ago (including the birth of her second child), she is doing fine and has never had any problems.
The ETMS approach presents a multi-lens investigation to each patient. It examines the patient's constitutional energetics, endogenous and exogenous factors, and specific biomarkers from blood, pathology and tissue testing. The information is used to strategically design protocols to alter the individual's biological terrain, including gene behavior and expression, so that it is conducive to health and vitality while actively suppressing disease.
If a patient would like another Doctor or conventional Oncologist to be involved, Donald Yance will work, collaboratively with them, as well. In the case of chemotherapy, he believes chemosensitivity testing is most helpful to ascertain which chemotherapeutic agents would not be helpful, and to better identify those agents which would be most efficacious.
I could easily write a 5,000 word synopsis (and it would be a short summary !) about the work of Donald Yance, instead I suggest you explore his website.
Based upon my readings, discussions with Medical Doctors around the USA, research and investigation, I have come to the conclusion that Donald Yance may very well be a true pioneer in the realm of botanical medicine and its scientific relevance in the fight against Cancer. His research is extremely well defended. I, in fact, am currently reading one of his (unpublished, private) papers about Prostate Cancer. It is 195 pages long and has approximately 1,300 citations pointing to peer reviewed studies, substantiating his perceptions and conclusions.
His clinic has worked successfully with hundreds, if not thousands, of patients from early stage to advanced stage (stage 4) Cancer patients. The clinic has many success stories.
Whether you are following an alternative, integrative or conventional path, I would strongly suggest that you explore his clinic as a primary, integrative or complementary tool, to implement in your battle against Cancer.
Again, his website is www.mederifoundation.org for more background, articles, publications and contact information.
Keep the Hope !!
