When we think of cancer treatments, the first thing that comes to mind may be chemotherapy, horrible side effects, and difficult survival. According to NaturalNews.com, based on a study conducted in Britain in 2004, with one in every four cancer deaths, chemotherapy had either sped up or caused the death of the patient. The study also found that two out of every five of the patients had acquired significant poisoning from the chemotherapy.
Aetna.com explains that over 1.4 million new cancer cases are diagnosed every year in the United States, 650,000 of which seek chemotherapy (amgen.com). 550,000 people die from cancer each year according to nanomedicinecenter.com. With side effects and death rates from chemo being so extreme, medical experts have turned to other possible methods when threating cancer patients. NCBI.com states that 40 percent of cancer patients turn to complementary and alternative medicine.
Mark Rosenberg MD. has a personal relationship to the disease that jump started vigorous research for a new treatment method. After his mother died from lung cancer, Rosenberg decided to dedicate his time and resources to finding healthier, more innovative methods of cancer treatment.
Rosenberg’s innovative treatments consist of immunotherapy, which stimulates the innate immune system. Glycolytic inhibitors prevent cancer cells from utilizing sugar within the body, and inhibit the release of tissue that destroys enzymes.
For over 70 years, chemotherapy has been used to treat cancer. According to an article written by Dr. Rosenberg, chemo adds two or three months onto the estimated survival time. While this method does extend the life expectancy when used in vitro, chemotherapy takes an aggressive toll on a patient’s internal organs while treated inside the body. Rosenberg developed several methods of new integrative treatment that he found has a more positive effect on the body’s overall well- being as opposed to chemotherapy and radiation.
According to the Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine (A4M), “Traditional cancer treatment is efficacious for early stage cancer. Unfortunately, in the U.S., we have made little progress in the treatment of advanced stage cancers in the past twenty years. A study was published in the British journal, "Clinical Oncology," in December, 2004, entitled, "The Contribution of Cytotoxic Chemotherapy to 5-Year Survival in Adult Malignancies." The authors, one medical oncologist and two radiation oncologists, analyzed the results of all randomized clinical trials performed in the U.S. and Australia, that reported a statistically significant increase in 5-year survival due to the use of chemotherapy in adult malignancies. The trials that were analyzed were performed between 1990 and 2004. Overall survival benefit of less than 5% has been achieved in the adjuvant treatment of breast, colon, and head and neck cancers. Clearly, the need for an alternative form of cancer treatment is great and imminent.”
“On the contrary, I have extended both quality of life and lifespan. Most patients who make their way to my office have already failed chemotherapy and have been told to go home and enjoy their last few months. There is no greater satisfaction than crying with a beautiful forty year-old woman because her metastatic breast cancer to hips and spine is no longer seen on bone scan; or a vibrant sixty seven year-old man with metastases from his kidney to liver, lung, spine, and rib enters remission, after being told by his oncologist that he has perhaps 2 months to live. And this happens over and over, outside of the standard of care,” stated Rosenberg.
While traditional cancer treatments do have positive long term effects on some patients, new age innovative treatment methods may be a new option for others who are not so lucky.
A4M hosts one of the first fellowships in integrative cancer therapies. The program is designed to start improving your cancer patient’s quality of life and survival rates through innovative therapies.

About the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine
The American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine, Inc. (A4M) is a non-profit medical society dedicated to the advancement of technology to detect, prevent, and treat aging related disease and to promote research into methods to retard and optimize the human aging process. A4M is also dedicated to educating physicians, scientists, and members of the public on biomedical sciences, breaking technologies, and anti-aging issues. A4M believes that the disabilities associated with normal aging are caused by physiological dysfunction which in many cases are ameliorable to medical treatment, such that the human lifespan can be increased, and the quality of one's life enhanced as one grows chronologically older. A4M seeks to disseminate information concerning innovative science and research as well as treatment modalities designed to prolong the human lifespan. Anti-Aging Medicine is based on the scientific principles of responsible medical care consistent with those of other healthcare specialties. Although A4M seeks to disseminate information on many types of medical treatments, it does not promote or endorse any specific treatment nor does it sell or endorse any commercial product.
