The Fourth Treatment for Medical Refugees
THERMOTHERAPY IN THE NEW CENTURY
"Scientific Fact: Exposure to far infrared ray is the key to preventing metastatic cancer and strengthening the immunity."
Scientific Fact! Utilization of far infrared waves is the key to great health.
Today, the top three causes of death in Japan are cancer, myocardial infarction and cerebral infarction.
Since both myocardial infarction and cerebral infarction are caused by artherosclerosis, fighting cancer and vascular diseases are national issues. In the case of cancer, more than 330,000 patients die each year.
One out of three deaths is caused by cancer and in the future, one out of two people will suffer from cancer. In 10 years, more than 500,000 people are expected to die from cancer each year.
Even though people may not die from cancer, there is a high risk of becoming a cancer patient. If one of the members of a family becomes a cancer patient, the entire family has to endure a painful period.
Therefore, people must understand what cancer is and devote their efforts to prevent it.
Lifestyle plays a big role in the course of cancer.
For example, a larger intake of vegetable fibers will lower the risk of colon cancer. In addition, a sharp increase in lung cancer in Japan, where the cigarette-smoking population is the largest in the world.
There is a Correlation Between an Increase in the
Smoking Population and Cancer Deaths
The correlation between smoking and various cancers has been proven through hundreds of epidemiologic studies. In addition, its correlation is clearly evident when we specifically look at how lung cancer deaths and cigarette consumption relate to each other. The current decrease in male lung cancer deaths can be explained by the corresponding decrease in male smokers.
A research study comparing cancer deaths between Caucasian and Japanese immigrants living in California found that Japanese people still living in Japan had a 6-times greater risk level of stomach cancer than Caucasians living in California. However, when Japanese people immigrate to California, their risk of stomach cancer is reduced 4 times. In addition, Japanese-Americans have a 3-times lower risk level of contracting stomach cancer.
Even though Japanese people have only one quarter the risk level of getting colon cancer as a Caucasian, the risk increases 3-times when they immigrate to California. In addition, Japanese-Americans have 4-times greater the risk in getting colon cancer. Not only that, but the risk of prostate cancer increases 3 times when a Japanese person immigrates to California. On the other hand, Japanese-Americans have 7times the risk level in getting prostate cancer.
When we look at these results, we can easily determine that environment and eating habits play a significant role in cancer diagnosis. According to the National Cancer Institute the difference in food consumption plays a determining role in cancer risk. Even though we were able to find correlations between cancer and products such as cigarettes, UV rays and alcohol, it is difficult to find correlations with other various types of food. It is evident that a restriction in fat and calories reduces the risk of cancer. It is also clear that people who consume fatty meats and large amounts of calories have a greater chance of having colon cancer.
In other words, the "Westernization of diet" has a strong correlation with breast, prostate and colon cancer.
Tuberculosis and pneumonia were the leading cause of death 50 years ago (Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare / Population Statistics) Cancer deaths (Ratio of Caucasians living in California)
There have been 3,000 Fewer Cancer Deaths Each Year
in the US Since 2003
The increase in cancer deaths in the US has been halted since the 90's. Since 2003, there have been 3,000 fewer deaths from cancer with in each year. Such improvement has to do with the publication of the McGovern Report (over 5,000-chapters long). It announced that typical American eating habits are responsible for the high cancer rates. It started the smoke-free campaign by saying that cigarettes are as bad for the body as taking drugs. The National Cancer Institute started the designer food plan to change American eating habits to include more vegetables, fruits and seafood.
Since cancer deaths in Japan are still increasing, we also need to make these effort to promote better health.
According to the National Cancer Institute, the most common causes of death from cancer for males in 2005 were lung cancer, stomach cancer, liver cancer, colon carcinoma and colon cancer. For females, they were stomach cancer, lung cancer, colon carcinoma, liver cancer and breast cancer. The number of deaths caused by colon and rectal cancer increased rapidly for males over 50. The death rates from prostate cancer also increased sharply after the age of 60. The increase in death rates from breast cancer for females in their 50s was also significant. In addition, uterine cancer and ovarian cancer were a significant cause of death for females in their 30s and 40s respectively. These results may have to do with smoking for males and hormonal drugs for females. It may also relate to REVOLUTION environmental hormones, such as dioxins.
Ten Commandments drafted by the World Cancer Research Fund
In November 2007, the World Cancer Research Fund and the National Cancer Institute published, "Food, Nutrition, Exercise and the Prevention of Cancer", based from more than 7,000 research studies.
- Obesity goal: 2 1-23 BMI.
- Recommended: Maintain standard weight.
- Exercise recommendations: At least 30 minutes of exercise each day.
- Weight control recommendations: Refrain from eating high-energy foods, sugar-rich beverages, fruit juices and fast food. Water, tea and sugar-free coffee are recommended.
- Vegetable consumption goals: At least 600g of vegetables and fruits. In order to take in at least 25g of vegetable fiber, eat unprocessed wholegrain foods and beans. Recommendation: 400g of vegetables, fruits, wholegrain foods and beans. Refrain from eating processed grain food products.
- Animal food products: Refrain from eating meat (beef, pork, lamb) and processed meats (ham, bacon, smoked me ats, salted meats). Chicken and fish are recommended over red meat.
- Goal: Less than 300g of red meat each day.
- Recommendation: Less than 500g of red meat each week. Dairy products are not recommended due to their questionable results.
- Alcohol: 2 glasses/day for males, 1 glass/day for females.
- Cooking goal: Less than 5g of salt per day.
- Recommendation: Refrain from salty and spicy food. Less than 6g of salt per day. Refrain from eating moldy grains and beans.
- Supplement goal: Consume all the nutrition required witho ut any supplements.
- Recommendation: Do not rely on supplements to prevent cancer.
- Breast-feeding: Perform breast-feeding for the first 6 months. This prevents breast cancer in women and obesity in babies.
- Post-cancer treatments: After treatment for cancer, consult professionals about your nutrition, weight and exercise regime.
Smoking is the primary cause of lung, oral and bladder cancers. It is confirmed that smoking cigarettes is the cause of various cancers. In addition, it has been shown that cigarettes and alcohol have a synergistic oncogenic effect.
The 12 Commandments Published by the
Japanese National Cancer Institute to Prevent Cancer
- Balanced nutritional intake (no unbalanced diets).
- Vary eating habits each day (do not eat the same food all the time).
- Restrict fat intake.
- Drink small amounts of alcohol (restrict strong drinks and do not smok when during alcohol).
- Do not smoke (risk of passive smoking as well).
- Intake an adequate amounts of vitamins and vegetable fibers from your diet.
- Less hot and salty food. Wait for hot foods to cool down before eating them.
- Do not eat burnt food.
- Do not eat moldy food (especially beans and corn).
- Do not sunbathe too much.
- Take an adequate amount of exercise (avoid stress).
- Maintain good hygiene.
Compared to the Ten commandments of World Cancer Research Fund, these recommendations lack practicality. The 12 commandments may therefore not be enough to prevent cancer.
Despite the Three Treatment Options that are in Development...
Currently, there are three options to treat cancer: Surgery, radiation and chemotherapy.
Due to the development of the laparoscopy, a patient's burdens are minimized and he or she can be discharged within a shorter time frame.
New developments in radiation technology allow the ability to pinpoint the emission of radiation directly onto the cancer cells. In addition, targeted cell therapy allows customized chemotherapy for various cancer patients.
Since we are able to now analyze the patient's genes to distinguish people who are susceptible to the treatment from those who are not, we no longer have to perform unnecessary operations.
Even though treatment methods are developing rapidly, the numbers of cancer patients are also increasing.
Even though we treat cancer patients in the early stages with the three methods, the recurrence rate is almost 60 to 70%. Not only that, there is an increasing population of cancer refugees, those who are abandoned by the hospitals because there are no more treatment options left.
Even in large hospitals, doctors still say, "We cannot do anything for you anymore", when these three treatment options are no longer effective. They end up prescribing opioid drugs to relieve pain and ask the patients to live out their last days with their families.
Some may even prescribe anti-cancer drugs that do not help the patients at all.
In these cases, the side effects of anti-cancer drugs reduce thepatient's quality of life. They end up dying in pain that may be due to the anti-cancer drugs rather than the disease.
Employing the three treatment options along with alternative medicine
I was not the only one who had questions about these kinds of problems. Are there any cancer treatment options other than the three standard treatment options?
More and more medical institutions are performing immunotherapy as a fourth cancer treatment option. It is a therapy that focuses on improving the function of macrophages and Natural Killer(NK), cells to make them fight the cancer cells. Therapy methods vary significantly from one person to the next; they range from mushroom extracts to marine plant extracts. Many "cancer refugees" are taking various supplement products because they do not know which ones may be beneficial to fighting their disease.
In addition, activated lymphocyte therapy that strengthens lymphocytes in vitro and then involves injecting them back into the body has some promise. However, since a great deal of time and expense are required to cure cancer based solely on these treatments, these options may not be a definite answer for cancer treatments.
There are many cancer patients who treat their cancer at the early stages and manage to cure it completely. However, many of these patients go through recurrences and metastasis. The current levels of medicine cannot treat these kinds of cancer patients.
Treatment options other than the three Western medicine treatment options are known as alternative medicine. Our treatment method utilizes the advantages of these three treatment options and combines them with supplementary treatment methods that strengthen the body's immune system.
It is also known as an integrated medicine that improves the effects of cancer treatments.
If the cancer is in the early stages, surgery and radiation are utilized to treat the cancer. If chemotherapy is effective, we utilize it while minimizing its side effects.
In addition, we apply heat to the body to weaken the cancer cells.
Our treatment method also combines effective supplements that fight the cancer from various angles.
My goal in cancer treatment is to have a symbiosis with cancer. We aim to weaken the cancer to prevent it from spreading and to lengthen the patients' lives. If we were to destroy human lives in the course of killing cancer cells, our therapeutic methods would have no purpose.
Currently, there is a treatment option called thermotherapy that focuses on the fact that cancer cells are heat-sensitive. It uses a machine called a thermotron to increase the local temperatures of various parts of the body. In addition, there is a thermotherapy that heats up the entire body's temperature. Hot baths, far infrared ray therapy and drug-induced fever treatments are various methods of thermotherapy.
It has been proven that thermotherapy using a thermotron, along with small doses of anti-cancer drugs is an effective treatment. However, this treatment leaves low-grade burns and localized pain behind. At least 2 treatments per week arerequired and it this covered by insurances when radiation is not used along this not covered by insurance when radiation is not used alongas well.
For many years, we have practiced and researched far infrared ray therapy, light therapy, anion emission devices, low frequency wave therapy, HIFU, microwave therapy, hot stone therapy, steam saunas, carbonated water therapy and many other treatment options.
Hot Jewelry Stone Therapy Shown Promising Results
During the process, we discovered a medical device called the "Biomat" that has been certified by the USFDA. It combines the thermopower of Amethyst and tourmaline to naturally improve the therapeutic power. In addition, it is inexpensive and can also be used every day. There are no side effects and anyone can improve their autonomic nervous system by 100% and feel the difference starting from the day they use it.
There was a case that cured prostate and breast cancer within 2 to 3 months. A patient who had been given just a few months to live ended up living for more than one year.
If we are able to utilize various weapons to fight late-stage cancer, all we need to do is end the fight with a draw. However, since this fight will last for a long period of time, we might lose if we fail to maintain good eating habits and life styles.
If we can maintain quality of life while improving the immune system, we might have a chance at winning the battle with cancer. We do not always have to be hospitalized and put in bed to fight cancer.
There are people who work at home to fight their cancers.
The Nakamachi Garden Clinic, where laughter never stops
Patient's Happy Laughter is the Priority
In other words, we are utilizing the advantages of modern medicine along with alternative medicines.
Regardless of it being a Western, Eastern or alternative medicine, we aim to employ them all to our advantage to find healthy laughter in our patients.
In this book, we will introduce the fourth treatment option of cancer, thermotherapy. We will also talk about the various approaches that we can take to attack cancer. If you can walk and have a good appetite, there is a chance for a cure and the lengthening of your life.
You do not have to give up just because you were diagnosed with late-stage cancer. It is important for you to believe that you have a natural immunity that can "cure" your own body.
Life is not something that doctors can decide on and make rulings about; if you have a strong motivation to cure your disease and become healthy, your genes will start to cure your disease with your natural immunity.
We wish to expand our integrated treatment method through our hot gemstone therapy. The fight against cancer does not end with the three standard treatment options.
It is valid to say that we have options, I am certain that thermotherapy will be helpful to everyone.
I hope that this book will help cancer patients, their families and doctors who are fighting to cure this disease.Yoshimuzu Hobuhiro, September 2008
The True Form of Malignant Cancer
The Definition of Cancer
Before we delve into the war with cancer, it is important for us to know what it really is. Before we talk about the various strategies with which to fight cancer, let's learn about it. People who are eager to get started are welcome to start reading from Chapter 1.
The word "cancer" refers to the entire spectrum of malignant neoplasms and is also commonly used to describe malignant tumors. The difference between a benign and a malignant tumor has to do with the fact that a benign tumor only grows in size at a specific location whereas a malignant tumor invades into the neighboring tissue to metastasize into other organs and tissues. As a result, malignant tumors tend to threaten the life of their host.
The word "cancer" is commonly interchanged with the term "malignant tumor" however, the word "cancer" refers to tumor growth from the epithelial tissues. Tumor growth from bones and muscles is called a "tumor" Even though the tumor does not originate from the epithelial cells, it is still treated as if it is a malignant tumor.
Benign tumors do not invade or metastasize into other tissue. However, depending on its location, it may not be completely "benign"; if it is growing on the brain stem, it may threaten the life of its host and is therefore not so "benign" after all.
However, with the exception of these types of life-threatening benign tumors, we will not be discussing "benign tumors" within this book.
Normally, cancer is categorized as lung cancer, stomach cancer, breast cancer and colon cancer depending on its primary growth site. We distinguish it from metastasis cancer by using the terms like "metastasis lung cancer", "lung metastasis to stomach cancer" or "lung metastasis of breast cancer".
Although they are not called "cancer," brain cancers such as glioblastoma and glioma as well as hematopoietic diseases such as leukemia, lymphoma and multiple myeloma are part of the malignant tumor group.
We classify cancer based on the histological categories such as adenoma, squamous cell carcinoma and small cell cancer. We also use anatomical classifications such as lung cancer, breast cancer and stomach cancer. For example, cancers growing in the lung are known as lung cancer (adenoma, small cell carcinoma).
These histological differences resul t in different chemotherapy combinations. Although some of the "malignant cancer" diseases are not known as "cancer", such as sarcoma and leukemia, we will use the terms "cancer" and "malignant tumor" interchangeably.
With the exception of neuronal cells, more than 60 trillion cells in our body are going through duplication and apoptosis on a daily basis. In its normal state, our body is designed to control the growth of cells so that they only grow when the body needs them to grow. If cells die because of the results of aging, new cells will grow to replace old cells.
P53 is a well-known tumor-suppressing gene that prevents cells from overgrowth.
However, if the genes that regulate cell growth and apoptosis were to mutate into a non-functioning gene, certain cells in our body would grow without control and the old cells would not go into apoptosis.
These cells would grow and grow to become what we call a tumor or neoplasm. Some of these neoplasms may be malignant and threaten the life of the host.
There are some genes that were found to play a significant role in the growth of tumors. If the P53 gene mutates, cells do not go through the proper apoptosis and go into an uncontrolled growth cycle.
Normally, the growth of tumors is caused by spontaneous mutations and is not caused by genetic defects, with the exception of some genetic tumor diseases.
In addition, some cancers are caused by viruses and bacterial infections. Cervical cancer is known to be caused by human papilloma virus, types 161 and 18. The Epstein Barr Virus is known to cause Burkitt's Lymphoma, the Human T Lymphocyte Virus causes T Cell Leukemia and Helicobacter Pylori causes stomach cancer.
There are a variety of mechanisms that these microorganisms use to cause tumor growth.
Human papilloma virus and Epstein Barr Virus inhibit the function of P53 in order to cause tumor growth in our bodies.
The Hepatitis virus and Helicobacter Pylori cause constant inflammations in our body that increase the risk of cancer.
However, infections from these microorganisms are just a step within the diverse mechanisms of cancer growth. Viral infection alone does not cause cancer. In addition, there are genes called "oncogenes" that stimulate the growth of tumors in our body. Therefore, it is extremely important to activate these tumor-suppressing genes in the course of treating cancer.
Some 60 trillion cells in our body are grown from a single embryo. A single embryo will differentiate into various stem cells that grow into various cells in our body. This process is called "differentiation". Therefore, a higher amount of "undifferentiated cells" will tend to actively divide into daughter cells and cause active cell growth.
As a result, more "undifferentiated cells" in the tumor tissue will mean that the tumor is more "malignant". It tends to metastasize faster, resist treatment and result in a bad prognosis. However, between the differentiated and undifferentiated types, there is an intermediate type.
Cancer stages are determined by the size, lymph node metastasis and remote metastasis. The combination of these three factors is called TNM(Tumor, Lymph node, and Metastasis) staging.
As shown in the table, the size and the invasion level determine whether the tumor is T0 or T4. N0~N4 are designated for lymph node metastasis. To evaluate remote metastasis, the M0 (no metastasis) and M1 (metastasis) stages are used. T0 refers to a stage where there is a tumor but one that is too small to invade into its neighboring organs. In the case of cancers, the T0 stage refers to a cancer that only grows on the epithelial cells. These tumors can be surgically removed using an endoscope.
|T0||No visible tumor|
|T1~T4||Different stages based on tumor size and invasion levels|
|Lymph node metastasis|
(N: lymph nodes)
|N0||No lymph node metastasis|
|N1~N4||Different stages based on various lymph node metastasis status|
|M0||No remote metastasis|
Normally, the size of the tumor determines its risk level. Large tumors may cause various defects by compressing the neighboring organs and nerves even without metastasis. Lung cancers compressing on the nerves under the clavicle to cause neurotic pain are called pancoast tumors. In addition, rectal cancer may invade into the bladder to cause hematuria.
Lymph node metastasis refers to the state where the cancer cells are caught within the lymph node and grow in size. Normally, lymphocytic activities at the lymph node kills any invading foreign objects.
Therefore, cancers that metastasize into the lymph nodes have the power to overcome the natural immunity of our body. If it were to metastasize further into the lymph node from its primary origin, this means that the cancer is much stronger than the cancers that metastasize only into the neighboring lymph nodes.When cancers metastasize into other organs, the prognosis is usually bad regardless of the primary site.
There are common metastasis origins for certain cancers. For example, prostate cancer, breast cancer and thyroid cancer tend to metastasize into bones, whereas colon cancers tend to metastasize into the liver and lungs.
The cancer staging system is made based on the TNM staging system in order to look at the progression of cancer. Since it is classified based on clinical presentation, it may also be named "clinical progression classification". Depending on the stage, some cancers may be treated with surgery and some may not even have a surgical indication.
The cancer staging system can also be classified into various organs as in the TNM staging. The following is the staging system for cervical cancers.
|0||When the cancer resides within the epithelium|
|I||Ia||Ia1: Cancerous cells invade into the basement membrane but within 3mm of distance and 7mm of size|
|Ia2: Invasion depth is within 3-5mm and the size is within 7mm|
|Ib||Ib1: Tumor is well enclosed within the cervix and the size is within 4cm|
|Ib2: When the size is larger than 4cm|
|II||IIa||Even though the tumor invades into the vagina, it did not invade into the lower 1/3 of the vaginal wall. It still did not invade into the uterine cavity.|
|IIb||Same as the above, but invasion into the uterine cavity|
|III||IIIa||Invasion into the lower 1/3 of the vaginal wall but did not invade into the pelvic wall.|
|IIIb||Invasion into the pelvic cavity and definite hydronephrosis symptoms|
|IV||IVa||Invasion into the bladder or rectum|
|IVb||Invasion over the pelvic cavity|
There have been 3,000 fewer cancer deaths since 2003 in the US. This improvement has to do with various factors such as early diagnosis, improved eating habits and the introduction of integrated treatments. However, in lessa affluent populations such as the Hispanics and African-Americans, cancer deaths are still increasing.
Even though cancer deaths are still raising in Japan, cancer deaths in the young population have halted. For example, cancer deaths for males in their 50s have reached equilibrium and cancer deaths in females are actually decreasing. We can decrease the number of cancer deaths based on early diagnosis, improvements in eating habits and early treatments.
The Truth About Cancer Treatment
In order to decrease the rate of cancer deaths, improvements in lifestyle, early diagnosis and early treatment are extremely important. However, what should we do if we actually have cancer? No one can stop themselves from panicking when they are diagnosed with cancer If it is an early-stage cancer, it may be cured with a simple endoscopic surgery. However, the problem starts when the cancer has metastasized into the lymph nodes and abnormalities. If the cancer constantly recurs, even after surgeries and chemotherapy, there may be a significant problem.
At this stage, it may be impossible to cure cancer completely.
If we treat cancer with chemotherapy in order to "cure" the cancer, we will end up killing more immune cells in our body and decreasing the quality of life of our patients.
It may even result in earlier deaths than expected. In addition, when chemotherapy does not work, the hospital will end up saying that they have tried their best but there is nothingelse they can do. They will end up giving up on the patients and asking patients to spend their last days with their families. That is how "cancer refugees" are created.
However, are there no treatment options at this stage of cancer?
Doctors who perform integrated and supplementary treatments will say that this is the time to start the real fight. They are the ones who lend their hands to those who are diagnosed with "end stage cancer". There are so many alternative treatment options that even doctors have a difficult time in making decisions. In desperation, many patients try out different things to cure their diseases.
Even though there are some supplements that are extremely effective for some patients, there are only a few that have constant positive effects on all cancer patients.
There are many cases where cancer has been cured with various supplements such as "Agarist" or "Fucoidan". However, there are no scientific data to say how many patients were cured, and at which stage of their cancer. Some patients may feel that some of these supplements are effective. It is important to determine which supplements are effective based on scientific research studies. We must verify scientific evidence such as tumor markers, body status and radiographic images in order to know which supplements are backed up by scientific results.
