Esophageal cancer – Alternative Treatment & Therapie

Esophageal cancer (Oesophageal Carcinoma) is a rare malignant disease of the tissue of the oesophagus. There are basically two types of esophageal cancer, the so called adenocarcinoma, and the squamous cell carcinoma. It mostly affects men over 55 years of age.

The so called adenocarcinomas, which are becoming more frequent in the western world, are formed in the lower esophagus as a result of a reflux disorder (acid reflux into the esophagus). Risk factors are high concentrations of long-term alcohol and nicotine consumption. Also particularly hot and spicy foods, as well as certain chemicals, play a role. Common to all risk factors is chronic irritation and damage to the oesophageal lining.

When the first complaints appear, the cancer often has already removed two-thirds of the diameter of the oesophagus. Common symptoms include a burning sensation when swallowing food, and heart palpitations when drinking hot drinks. In the early stages, patients complain only when swallowing solid food. Later they also complain when swallowing soft food and liquid. The result is an insufficient food supply with massive weight loss.

Due to the closure of the esophagus, food flows back into the mouth, and the patient produces foul belches. The spread of cancer into the surrounding areas leads to pain behind the breastbone, hoarseness, loss of voice, coughing and shortness of breath.

Esophageal cancer usually metastasizes first via the lymph into the surroundings (the mediastinum and the cervical lymph nodes), and later through the blood into the liver, lungs and bones.

Esophageal barium swallow (esophagography) examination, and endoscopy with tissue sampling are critical for an accurate diagnosis. Further studies include (endo) ultrasound, chest X-rays and computed tomography.

At the Hyperthermia Centre Hannover we recommend for the treatment of esophageal cancer the following therapies:

Whole Body-Hyperthermia
The healing effect of whole-body hyperthermia for patients with esophageal cancer is that we can very quickly bring the organism to high temperatures (up 40.5 °). This fast and high heating activates not only the immune system, but many degenerate cells of the esophageal cancer are destroyed by the fast floods of heat. In addition to the damage or removal of the cancer cells, the whole-body hyperthermia activates the immune system significantly without burdening the rest of the body. It triggers an immune cascade that enables the white blood cells to multiply.

Loco-regional Hyperthermia
Regionally targeted hyperthermia is recommended for patients with esophageal cancer. During this process the affected region is quickly heated to high temperatures (40 up to 44 ° C). This heating activates the immune system and harms or destroyes degenerated cells. In our day clinic at the Hyperthermia Centre Hannover, we offer this partial body hyperthermia in which only damaged or degenerated tissue is overheated, guaranteeing very gentle treatment to our patients.

Insulin Potentation Therapy (IPT)
Patients with esophageal cancer can be successfully treated at the Hyperthermia Centre Hanover with IPT Insulin potentiation therapy, which uses hormone insulin to inject drugs more effectively into the tumour cells. Because the degenerate cells of esophageal cancer have a higher basal metabolic rate than normal cells, they attempt to absorb sugar more quickly after a period of low blood sugar. The treatment works through the so-called ‘insulin receptors’. Because tumour cells have in general more of the ‘insulin receptors’ than normal cells, chemotherapy can therefore impact the malignant cells more effectively by using IPT. As a result the dosage of conventional chemotherapy protocols can be reduced, and thus the side effects can also be significantly lowered.

The Wega test is performed on patients with esophageal cancer using a low pulse current device to search for interference fields in the organism by means of electrical stimulation. In addition, the therapists at the Hyperthermia Centre Hannover can assess the energetic condition of a patient, which is extremely helpful for the efficient handling of esophageal cancer. Based on Electro acupuncture, according to Dr. Voll the Wega-test can detect inflammation, organ stress or interference fields in the posterior region or recognizes organ correlations and analyses the effect of viruses, bacteria or pollutants.

With bio-resonance testing we analyse substances and their effect on the body of a patient with esophageal cancer. This is a very fast and completely painless process. In many cases we can identify which substance will lead to ill-health (such as heavy metals, bacteria, viruses, Electro Smog, dental materials, allergens etc.), which is essential for an efficient treatment of  esophageal cancer. As an essential supplement to other treatments and examinations, the bio-resonance testing can give important diagnostic and therapeutic assistance.

Nutritional counselling / therapy
Diet alone cannot defeat esophageal cancer, but vital substance-rich whole food nutrition and enough fibre, along with the secondary plant compounds contained in many types of vegetables such as carotenoids and chlorophyll, can help inhibit the growth of cancer .We are happy to advise about appropriate diets that will suit you.

The nutritional therapy of Dr.Gerson aims at detoxifying the body with simultaneous addition of many fresh nutrients, which is particularly useful for patients with esophageal cancer. In addition to special juices, freshly and elaborately prepared and regularly taken throughout the day including high-quality fruits and vegetables. These are carefully prepared at the Hyperthermia Centre Hannover to retain their healing powers, partly as fresh food, in special soups, or gently cooked and steamed. The Gerson therapy is low in sodium, protein and fat.

We especially recommend for our patients with esophageal cancer, a special detoxification therapy: a coffee enema where coffee is passed though the gut. In the rectum, the coffee is absorbed through the intestinal mucosa into the blood and reaches the liver directly. This is done via the portal vein system. The portal vein collects the blood from the digestive organs and carries it to the liver. In this portal venous blood, metabolites and toxins from these organs are combined. These harmful substances along with caffeine are reduced again in the liver our No. 1 detoxification organ.

Infusions with high doses Vitamin C
At the Hyperthermia Centre Hannover we treat patients with esophageal cancer successfully with high-doses of vitamin C. The so-called Ascorbic acid is the most popular vitamin,- and the most important antioxidant, i.e. it intercepts harmful free radicals in the body and makes them harmless – and in this way prevents degeneration in the cells. Vitamin C is also essential for the immune system and various restructuring processes in the body. When vitamin C is given in a high- dose, the treatment of oesophageal Carcinoma can be positively affected.

Infusions with „Vitamin“ B17
Vitamin B17 is used in the Hyperthermia Centre Hannover for the treatment of esophageal cancer. Through the interaction of enzymes, increasingly toxic prussic acids are formed in degenerate cells which leads to the death of tumour cells. A therapy with this substance, also known as Amygdalin, is an alternative or complementary therapy which benefits the treatment of esophageal cancer, and is also useful for several tumour types.

Neural therapy assumes that chronic ailments are caused by interference fields. Each part of the body, and each pathologically altered organ in the body, can be an interference field. For the treatment of esophageal cancer, an anti-inflammatory anaesthetic will be injected into the abnormal tissue structure, primarily in the Head zone, which causes relief to the aching body area, and at the same time the corresponding organ, in this case the esophagus.

Selenium is one of the essential and vitally necessary trace elements which are included in intracellular enzymes. We recommend for our patients with esophageal cancer selenium in a high dose form – in combination with reduced L-glutathione and L-cysteine – as an effective strong antioxidant. As the administration is done through an infusion, the substances are not going through the gastrointestinal tract so they are immediately usable for the body, in a friendly available form.
