Phoenix, Arizona (PRWEB) July 16, 2011
The medical team at the EuroMed Foundation (http://www.euro-med.us), which is an Arizona cancer center, recently advised men and women to adopt healthy lifestyle habits for the prevention of chronic disease. Dr. Robert Zieve, an attending physician at the holistic cancer treatment clinic, stressed the importance of healthy food choices, physical activity, proper oral hygiene, and chemical avoidance.
"Cancer is an environmental disease," says Dr. Zieve, of the EuroMed Foundation. "The best line of defense we have in protecting ourselves and our families is prevention. This involves making healthy decisions regarding diet and exercise, and avoiding toxins and chemicals as often as possible."
Creating a cancer-free atmosphere can be challenging, Dr. Zieve admits, because we encounter several cancer-causing agents on a daily basis. Toxic chemicals such as pesticides, formaldehyde, mercury, lead, and radiation, circulate our environment through the air, wind, and water. In addition, Dr. Zieve points out that the typical American diet is lacking in nutritional value and is often filled with polluted foods that contain additives, preservatives, hormones, and steroids.
"Processed convenience foods contain large amounts of sugars and fat, which can lead to improper immune function, high insulin levels, inflammation, and conditions such as heart disease," says Dr. Zieve. "By eating organic, nutrient-dense foods, we create an environment that allows our body to detoxify and function efficiently. Your body cannot heal without proper nutrition."
Dr. Zieve practices Insulin Potentiation Therapy (IPT), a low-dose chemotherapy treatment that preserves the immune system. This alternative method is much less toxic and produces fewer side effects than standard chemotherapy and radiation treatments.
The EuroMed Foundation combines IPT with other complementary therapies to destroy cancer cells while rebuilding the immune system and protecting the liver. These treatments may include intravenous vitamin-C, Poly-MVA (a dietary supplement that supports cellular energy production), and other remedies. Many of the patients at the EuroMed clinic report having higher energy and a more positive outlook after IPT treatment.
"Traditional chemotherapy and radiation are extremely toxic to the body," Dr. Zieve says. "IPT uses about one-tenth of the dose of standard chemotherapy. By combining IPT with other holistic approaches, we are able to nourish and support the body so that it can effectively fight cancer."
