What To Do When Chemo Stops working In Stage 4 Cancer

http://www.envita.com/conditions-we-treat/cancer/stage-4cancer/ - Stage 4 Cancer is also known as Stage IV Cancer, which spread to various sites in the body. It is a complex type of cancer to treat, and it can involve many organ systems. Envita’s vast area of technologies options gives stage 4 cancer patients the most complete approach to their cancer.

What To Do When Chemo Stops working In Stage 4 Cancer

  1. 1. What To Do When Chemo Stops working In Stage 4 CancerAvoiding apoptosis, the naturally-occurring method by which the body rids itself ofdamaged or unwanted cells, is one way that cancer and stage 4 cancer develops andprogresses.Apoptosis is triggered by cell stress, DNA damage, developmental cues, and othersignals from within the body. Unfortunately, we commonly see cells in cancer patientsdiverting this process. And in doing so their cancers are able to survive, continue todevelop, and even spread.In short, the body already has the equipment to rid itself of cancer; so the question is“why are stage 4 cancer patients diverting apoptosis?”Mutations Bring About Stubborn and Resistant Stage 4 CancersWell, let’s consider how apoptosis is triggered. There are two basic ways: • From within the cell • From outside the cellFor apoptosis to be triggered from within, the process requires a protein, p53. Mutationsto the p53 protein gene can cause it to become inactive, thereby preventing normal,healthy apoptosis. This type of mutation is seen in almost 50 percent of all human

Preventing such mutation is a good step toward improving the overall results oftreatment.Stage 4 Cancers Can Dodge the Silver Bullet of ChemotherapyChemotherapy and radiation cause DNA damage to cells by affecting their DNA. But,because DNA mutation apoptosis triggers rely on p53, if the p53 is itself mutated,apoptosis may never occur - saving cancer cells from what would be imminentdestruction.There are many clinical studies that show that customary protocols are seeing cancerprogressions and recurrences for just this reason. By employing advanced nutritionaltreatments to prevent p53 oncogene mutation, Envita works hard with patients to helptheir bodies enjoy normal and healthy apoptosis.Stage 4 cancer treatments fail repeatedly when treatment protocols are implemented,which focus on symptoms and effects alone. In reality, these battles are most often wonby attacking the causes directly. Our chances of success increase considerably whenmeasures are taken to eliminate deficiencies in nutrition, immunology, and the ability toeliminate toxins.Launching an Attack on CancerIt is possible to combine treatments to trigger apoptosis from outside the cell, as well asfrom inside the cell that do not require p53. In doing so, apoptosis may be achieved incancer cells that had previously been considered “resistant” to traditional treatments.Envita works vigorously to capitalize and even further this approach and its subsequentresults. Attacking apoptosis form outside the cell is essential for stage 4 cancerpatients as chemotherapy has usually stopped working.Envita provides its patients with mitochondria dysfunction support with the necessarynutrients and treatments to reestablish normal healthy function. More than a decade ofexperience dealing with the most difficult stage 4 cancers has provided insight as towhich treatments are most successful in helping the body attack and eliminate cancercells.The Better the Treatment – the Better the ResultEnvita’s Comprehensive Smart Oncology® (link to Envita cancer home page)program integrates successful oncology combinations with our aggressive naturaltherapies that affect apoptosis in cancer cells by using tumor destruction methods thatactually rely solely on p53.
