Oropharyngeal cancer – Alternative Treatment & Therapie

Tumours of the oral pharynx are called oropharyngeal cancer. They are relatively rare: about two to five cases per 100,000 men and 0.5 cases per 100,000 women.

Most patients with an oropharyngeal cancer were carcinogenic for many years, which means they have been exposed to carcinogenic substances. For tobacco in the form of cigarettes, pipe tobacco and cigars, there is a direct relationship between the condition and the quantity consumed. This can significantly increase the risk of cancer in the neck and throat. An increased consumption could be determined in 85 percent of patients with head-neck cancer from alcohol and tobacco.

With oropharyngeal cancer there are tumours of the epithelium (the majority of the diseases), tumours of the lymphoid tissue, and salivary gland carcinomas , corresponding to the tissue types. According to the location, there are tumours of the tonsils, the base of the tongue and the soft palate.

Many patients complain of swallowing and throat pain radiating to the ear. Bad breath, lockjaw and blood in the saliva may be signs of a mouth-throat tumour, as well as a “nasal voice”. Often the disease is accompanied by a swelling of the cervical lymph nodes.

Oropharynx cancers can be diagnosed early by a laryngoscopy. In addition, a pan-endoscopy of the entire throat area with intubation anaesthesia is usually performed. Small samples of tissue are taken from the patient via biopsy, and the delicate tissue is studied to confirm the diagnosis.

To determine the location and size of the tumour and for therapy planning, imaging techniques are used such as ultrasonography (ultrasound), computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI),

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

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

Loco regional Hyperthermia
The purely effective regional hyperthermia is recommended with oropharyngeal cancer where the affected region is quickly heated to high temperatures (40 up to 44 ° C). This heating activates the immune system. Also, many degenerated cells of oral pharynx will be harmed or destroyed. In our day clinic at the Hyperthermia Centre Hannover we offer this partial body hyperthermia treatment according to the diagnosis of the patient, and only damaged or degenerated tissue is overheated guaranteeing very gentle treatment to our patients.

The Wega test is performed on patients with oropharyngeal cancer using a low pulse current device which is used to search for interference fields in the body by means of electrical stimulation. In addition, the therapists at the Hyperthermia Centre Hannover can derive details of the condition of the energy level of a patient, which is extremely helpful for the efficient treatment tumours of the oral pharynx: Based on Electro acupuncture, according to Dr. Voll, the Wega-test detects inflammation, organ stress or interference fields in the posterior region, or recognizes organ correlations and analyses the effect of viruses, bacteria or pollutants.

During bio-resonance testing we analyse in the Hyperthermia Centre Hannover, interfering substances and their effect on the body of patients with cancer of the oral pharynx. This is very fast and is completely painless. In many cases we can find which problem in the patient can lead to ill health (such as heavy metals, bacteria, viruses, Electro Smog, dental materials, allergens etc.), which is essential for an efficient treatment of oropharyngeal cancer. As an essential addition to other treatments and examinations, the bio-resonance testing can give important diagnostic and therapeutic assistance.

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

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

We especially recommend for our patients with oropharyngeal cancer at the Hyperthermia Centre Hannover, 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. This portal venous blood contains also metabolites and toxins from these organs. 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 tumours in the oral pharynx successfully with high-doses of vitamin C. The so-called Ascorbic acid is the best known 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 oropharyngeal cancer can be positively affected.

Infusions with „Vitamin“ B17
Vitamin B17 is used in the Hyperthermia Centre Hannover for the treatment of oropharyngeal cancer. Through the interaction of enzymes, toxic prussic acids are increasingly formed in degenerated cells which lead to the death of tumour cells. A therapy with this substance, also known as Amygdalin, is an alternative or complementary therapy, and not only useful for the treatment of oral pharynx cancer, but also for several other types of tumours.

Vitamins, minerals, trace elements, fatty acids, amino acids and enzymes must be available in the right amount, and in the right relationship to each other, in the body. In the case of diseases, poor living habits or an unbalanced diet, this relationship can be significantly reduced. We identify for you the deficient substances with a comprehensive laboratory test, and offer infusions tailored to your constitution and specifically aimed at the oropharyngeal cancer indicated in order to resolve deficiencies in micro and macro nutrients. The infusions can contain amino acids (E.g. glycine, glutamine, taurine, cysteine, carnithin, carnosine, arginine, glutathione and so forth) and/or trace elements and mineral substances (such as zinc, selenium, magnesium, calcium, potassium and so forth) and vitamins (such as C and B-complex).

Selenium is one of the essential and vitally necessary trace elements which are included in intracellular enzymes. We recommend for our patients with oral pharynx 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 by the body in a friendly available form.
