If you look at our cancer clinic website, you will see mention of "targeting the micro-environment and making it as conducive as possible to your health, and the least conducive to disease." What does this mean, and how does one do this?
There are many lab tests that can help evaluate your internal biological milieu, especially when you have a cancer diagnosis.
These are the tests I recommend, and why.
Improvements in early detection and better therapies have contributed to a continued increase in the number of patients experiencing life after cancer. Many now live for decades following an initial cancer diagnosis, and the American Cancer Society projects that the number of cancer survivors will increase from 14.5 million in 2014 to 19 million by 2024 (Am Soc Clin Oncol. J Oncol Prac. 2015; 11(2): 79-113). That's certainly a positive trend, but the ensuing journey through survivorship is not an easy one. Eliminating tumors is one thing. Becoming healthy is quite another.
Most likely you will, but you may never know it.
As we age, the likelihood of developing a malignancy is higher than when we were younger. There are many factors in why this is true, including living in a toxic environment for many decades, an environment that is much worse today than it was 2 generations ago. These toxins run the gamut from chemicals, heavy metals and GMOs, to electromagnetic fields. No one today escapes these exposures. The question is: How successful are we in being able to eliminate and prevent exposure to these toxins? Our immune systems and our bodies have the capacity to kill cancer cells and tissues that are still in their early stages of growth, if we help them to do this.

You’ve probably heard the phrase “everything causes cancer.”
Well, that’s simply not true.
There are, however, quite a few things to look out for.
“We live in a toxic environment,” said Robert Zieve, medical director and coordinator of Partners in Integrative Cancer Therapies in Prescott. “We’re all living in an environment full of toxins that can permit latent genetic mutations to manifest into a particular type of cancer.”
