A therapy not approved or not considered the standard of care by the local health authorities by #56153 13 year 2 of 4 (50%)
Alternative cancer therapy is a broad term that covers many different therapeutic approaches not approved or not considered the standard of care by the local health authorities. In the United States the term refers to any cancer treatment not approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Most countries in the world do not have funding to research cancer, and are following the world Cancer Industry leaders: Germany, UK, USA, France, Switzerland, Sweden, Russia, Spain.
Some of the practitioners offering alternative cancer therapies are medical doctors, while others are not. Often treatment is delivered in a clinical setting. A few of these clinics are located in the United States, but most are in Mexico, Japan, the Philippines, and various countries in Europe (Denmark, Germany, France, Swiss ...).
Some clinics have a specific focus and emphasize the therapy they are famous for. Other clinics use a multidimensional approach, with a wide variety of alternative therapies, such as detoxification, immune-system enhancement, nutritional support, healthy diets, bio-magnetic therapy, along with such biological substances as hydrogen peroxide, ozone, laetrile, shark cartilage, mistletoe and many others, which are covered in this FAQ.
The decision to turn to alternative treatments is made by thousands of patients each year. Often these people seek out alternative cancer therapy only after traditional cancer therapy has failed and they have been told that they have only a few weeks to live. Utilizing alternative therapies, many of these patients improve, and live from two to five years longer, with a reasonably good quality of life. Although this can't be viewed as long-term remission, several years of rewarding life is a definite improvement over the last few weeks or months of misery that many patients experience from the effects of chemotherapy and radiation.
There are many people on curezone who won battle against cancer, and are cancer free, many years after diagnosis.
