Immune supportive therapy in cancer
The moment you are facing cancer, life comes to a standstill and the diagnosis dominates the lives of you and your loved ones. After the initial shock, there are many questions.
- What will my future look like?
- What are the implications for my loved ones?
- Is there the ability to make your own choices?
What are my options?
Our team is happy to help you along the way in this process. We are convinced that the combination of regular and non-regular or integrative medicine is most effective.
We may do additional blood tests to determine how we can best support you.
Treatments may include administration of immune-boosting infusions such as GcMAF and vitamin C. Diet (ketogenic, moerman, wood muller), supplements and if indicated medication may also be part of the treatment.
If you are interested and would like more information about what BeterKliniek can do for you, please make an appointment for an informative (telephone) consultation without obligation.
Support the immune system
About a hundred cancer cells are created in our bodies every day. If these were allowed to run their course undisturbed, they would multiply rapidly and everyone would get cancer at a young age. But fortunately, this is not the case.
Our immune system normally detects these malignant cells in a timely manner and renders them harmless.
Thus, if the immune system does not function properly, the chance of developing cancer potentially increases. In addition, cancer cells have the ability to "hide" from the immune system. The quality of the immune system and the "manipulative" capabilities of cancer, makes treating this syndrome very complex. If all this is not enough, the receptors of the cancer cells must also have affinity for the treatment medication otherwise it will be unsuccessful.
What is GcMAF?
There are about 200 scientists worldwide who have studied GcMAF. GcMAF is a human protein that every healthy person has in them. It is part of the immune system.
An intervening disease, such as cancer, will try to prevent your production of GcMAF. The chance of that succeeding is increased if you are weak, for example, as a result of unhealthy lifestyle (stress, poor diet, smoking)
Dana can inhibit the enzyme nagalase, which is emitted by disease, from producing GcMAF.
In your body, GcMAF begins as the GC protein, which is made in your liver. Gc is the code for the protein, and MAF stands for Macrophage Activating Factor. So GcMAF literally means protein that activates macrophages. The so-called macrophages are part of the immune system that destroy pathogens and thus cancer cells, among other things.
Three percent of your blood consists of GC protein. Your immune system transforms it into GcMAF: a B cell takes away one of the three sugar molecules from the GC protein. Then a T cell does the same, leaving the GC protein with only one sugar molecule.
GcMAF is a substance, which helps activate monocytes or dendritic cells, the most active immune cells against cancer, to greater aggressiveness. It does so by triggering vit D transport to the cell nuclear receptor, which is necessary for the cell's function as a macrophage.
In cancer, a protein called nagalase is produced against the vitamin D transport protein, which breaks down as a result. GcMAF can replace this transport protein. This allows vitamin D transport to take place again, and the immune cell is again activated sufficiently to perform its task.
GcMAF does not work if it has no affinity for receptors on the cancer cell. Also, some cancers are able to disguise themselves in such a way that the immune system does not recognize them as cancer cells. Even in severe cases, it has insufficient effect. This is probably because the tumor load is too large for the immune system to attack.
GcMAF treatment has been confirmed by research but not yet widely accepted. GcMAF has no side effects. GcMAF is also excellent for use as post-treatment after regular treatment.
BeterKliniek is the clinic for Integrative Medicine that bridges regular and non-regular medicine.
An van Veen (physician) and Michael van Gils (therapist) look for the cause of a condition or disease. That is where the treatment starts otherwise, as people often say, it is 'carrying water to the sea'. We call this cause medicine. Sometimes it is also desirable to treat the symptoms (at the same time). We call this symptom medicine.
Chronic disorders often have their cause in epi- genetics. You can schedule a free informative telephone consultation (phone number 040-7117337 until 1 p.m.) at BeterKliniek to discuss your symptoms so that we can provide you with further advice.
