Metronomic chemotherapy is one of the biggest steps forward in the history of cancer treatment and is based on the Mikael Nordforsunderstanding of the blood supply in cancer tissue, or rather the possibility of controlling this so that the cancer cannot grow.

For patients, this new method of treatment is very interesting because it has practically no side effects. The treatment primarily uses tablets and research shows that this gives results that are as effective as conventional chemotherapy, in which the highest possible doses are given every second or third week, most often with quite serious side effects.

Angiogenesis means the creation of new blood vessels from an existing blood vessel and this is the primary way in which cancer cells obtain nutrition. Normal chemotherapy also destroys the endothelial cells in the small blood vessels, but is normally interrupted 2-3 weeks between treatment in order to let the body recuperate from serious side effects like nausea, vomiting, bad immune system and diarrhoea. During this time the cancer rebuilds its blood supply.

Metronomic chemotherapy, just like the regular beat of a metronome, is given daily or every second day, and thus does not allow the blood vessels to re-establish. It does not matter which type of cancer cells are involved or even whether they have become resistant. It is not cancer cells themselves which are attacked by metronomic therapy, but the blood vessels supplying the cancer cells.

You may be wondering whether the endothelial cells, too, can become resistant in the long run – and the answer is yes. However it takes a much longer time for the cancer cells to become resistant and the normal process under metronomic treatment is likely to be as follows: At first the tumour becomes smaller, then comes a long and stable period which can last for years until finally the cancer grows again. You can then shift to another form of metronomic chemotherapy or a combination of metronomic substances.

Introducing Mikael Nordfors MD

At The Holistic Approach we have a couple of professionals who have contributed to our website.

Mikael NordforsMikael Nordfors is a medical doctor currently working with holistic treatment of cancer, psychiatric problems and pain conditions in Copenhagen, Denmark. He is co-author of the international bestseller “Hypericum & Depression”, which introduced the antidepressant plant St. Johns wort to the non-German speaking part of the world. Besides being i medical doctor and author, he has also composed music and interpreted classical masterpieces on synthesizers. His music can be listened to and downloaded from http://www.lastfm.se and www.spotify.com

He has been interested in treatment of the so-called Piriformis Syndrome and has written an article called The Deep Gluteal Syndrome, an underestimated etiological factor for Sciatica, Low Back Pain and other chronic pain conditions? published on this website. His results imply that most cases of low back pain and sciatica can be substantially improved with very safe, cheap and efficient measures, and that this syndrome is severely under diagnosed. He had several fights against the Swedish health authorities, “Socialstyrelsen”, who claims this syndrome does not exist, despite ie an MR study from the Cedar Sinai clinic showing >70% of chronic sciatica is from the Piriformis Syndrome.  There have been four court cases, where he and one of his pupils did win against Socialstyrelsen, but no-one has highlighted this in the media, which in spite of the huge public interest of publishing these data, turned their back at Mikael and started to accuse him falsely of inventing fake diagnosis in order to sexually exploit his patients and similar things. This has happened not only to Mikael, but also to many other doctors in Scandinavia and the world who has been challenging the official medical dogmas. These false media accusations made his public career very difficult, as many patients and employers believed what was published.

Anyhow, he got work at the private cancer clinic Humlegaarden, where he learned a lot about both conventional and alternative cancer treatments like hyperthermia, LDN, DCA, GcMAF, Bio-Immune Therapy according to Thomas Tallberg, cancer psychotherapy according to Fred Levenson and many other complementary cancer therapies.

He can also take private psychotherapy patients and treat patients with back pain, fibromyalgia and sciatica. He can prescribe LDN for all kinds of autoimmune diseases.

He is also a licensed practitioner of LnB pain therapy, a system originating from ancient Greece that treats most pain conditions with special stretching exercises, pressure points and general health advice. LnB pain therapy is used by the German national team in skiing and soccer. He currently has his medical practice in the Second Opinion Clinic in Copenhagen, Denmark, which is also specializing in immunology, anti-aging medicine and alternative psychiatric treatments.

What is Emotional Freedom Technique?

Emotional Freedom Technique, also referred to as EFT, is a means of accessing energy meridians within the body that have long been a part of acupuncture in Chinese medicine. (1) However, EFT is noninvasive and can be used by the individual without the aid of a practitioner anywhere, any time and for any reason the individual feels it is necessary.

EFT is a powerful way of combining the established sciences of Mind Body Medicine and acupuncture without the use of needles. The history of the use of Emotional Freedom Technique lies in ancient Chinese medicine and is now becoming recognized by traditional Western medicine practitioners, mostly for its use as an anesthetic in hospital settings. However, Emotional Freedom Technique has been discovered to be a powerful way of accessing and erasing negative emotions in the human psyche.

In essence, Emotional Freedom Techniques are a way of stimulating certain points within the body through the use of tapping. Where an acupuncturist may have used needles or an individual practicing acupressure may use deep tissue pressure, those who practice Emotional Freedom Techniques take advantage of the immediacy in their environment by “tapping” into their meridian points and essentially breaking a negative emotional path.

Many of the tapping points that are used by Emotional Freedom Technique practitioners are those we automatically use ourselves when we are under stress. Think back to a time when you were recently stressed, had a headache or were thinking deeply. Most of us automatically reach for in the area on our face above our eyes, at our temples, below the eyes at the top of the cheekbone or at the base of the chin. Each of these are tapping points used in Emotional Freedom Techniques. In essence, the practice takes advantage of those points which we normally use to relieve our stress.

The interesting thing about emotional freedom techniques is that, when done at the correct places on the body, they work whether the individual believes in the practice or not. Think of it like a medical practice that your primary care physician would recommend to you. Whether you believe a medication can lower your blood pressure or not, the medication, for the most part, will work on the large majority of individuals for whom it is prescribed. Whether you believe that setting a fracture and placing it in a cast will work or not, when done correctly by a skilled practitioner, the leg will heal well and you will regain full function without pain. The same is true for emotional freedom techniques. When they are done at the correct position, whether you agree with the practice are not, it will work.

Critics of emotional freedom technique describe the theory as pseudoscientific and suggest that it stems from a cognitive component, such as a placebo effect where the individual recognizes the end result which should occur and makes it occur through the power of his own mind. There have been several scientific studies which purport to have found both negative and positive findings. Interestingly, the areas of the body which emotional freedom technique practitioners use, are those the same areas which are used for acupressure and acupuncture. And, while there has been the same degree of variety in scientific research for the use of acupuncture or acupressure, the basis of Emotional Freedom Technique is found in traditional Chinese medicine which has been functional for thousands of years.

Emotional Freedom Techniques are very easy to learn at home and help an individual to remove their negative emotions surrounding a specific event, reduce their food cravings and can be used to eliminate pain and help a person implement positive goals. Essentially, those who use EFT are inputting kinetic energy and short-circuiting and emotional block from the internal balance of the mind and body.

Despite its critics and the belief of traditional Western medical practitioners that the underlying scientific theory for the use of Emotional Freedom Techniques is flawed, the practice continues to grow as more individuals report significant positive results.

What is Colon Cancer?

This is a Cancer that forms in the tissues of the colon (the longest part of the large intestine). We might add that most colon cancers are adenocarcinomas (cancers that begin in cells that make and release mucus and other fluids). A diet mostly of cooked and processed foods devoid of enzymes is the main cause of colon cancer. Enzymes are especially found in raw foods. By the time the digestion process is in the final stages if the food is devoid of enzymes the colon which is the final process of digestion is robbed of necessary enzymes for proper digestion. Eventually this is a major contributing factor in Colon cancer.

What is Bone Cancer?


Bone cancer usually the result of cancer metastasizing. Primary bone cancer is cancer that forms in cells of your bone.

Here is a list of some types of primary bone cancer:

    osteosarcoma
    Ewing’s sarcoma
    malignant fibrous histiocytoma
    chondrosarcoma.

There is also what is known as Secondary bone cancer which is cancer that spreads to the bone from another part of the body (such as the prostate, breast, or lung).

What Are the Main Causes of Cancer?


Research shows that there are basically seven main causes of cancer. Knowing this will greatly enhance a person’s chances of survival.

Cause No 1 – Weak Immune System
Usually caused by a severe negative emotional shock (death in the family, divorce, family problems, financial setbacks, etc.) overworked and run down over an extended period of time, lack of rest, and improper nutrition that reinforces the immune system.

Cause No 2 – Toxins
Such as dangerous chemicals (in the workplace, home or garden), microbes, parasites and fungus, etc.

Cause No 3 – Improper Diet
An regular consumption of refined sugar and refined oils, such as in fizzy (soft) drinks, chips (crisps), store bought pastries, deep fried foods (French fries, donuts), prepared meats (hot dogs, sausages, bacon, ham) fast foods, food additives, etc

Cause No 4 – Oxygen Deprivation
Trans fats (margarine, refined vegetable oils) use in deep fried foods and processed foods (mayonnaise, refined vegetable oils) actually suffocate the cells when ingested depriving the body of life giving oxygen.

Cause No 5 – Acidic Body
Our body is a little chemical factory that works hard to keeps us healthy. But in order to do that we need a neutral PH Balance (7.4). Cancer thrives on a acidic and low oxygen environment. Research has proven that terminal cancer patients have an acidity level of 1.000 times more than normal healthy people.

Cause No 6 – Unresolved Emotional Problems
When you have unresolved emotional problems (death in the family, divorce, family problems, financial setbacks, etc.) than that will translate itself in several ailments. One of them is Cancer.

Cause No 7 – Vitamin D Deficiency
Nowadays people are scared of using the most important source of Vitamin D. Sunshine!
But it helps our body in more ways that most of us know, especially when dealing with cancer.
Most people are told that the sun is a cause of cancer, but there’s almost no evidence at all to support it. Instead there is plenty of evidence that appropriate sun exposure actually helps prevent skin cancer.
Skin cancer has been found to decrease with greater sun exposure and can be increased by sunscreens.

It may be a combination of all of these “causes” or one in particular that a cancer patient can pinpoint as their main reason for having cancer.

Bladder Cancer


What is Bladder Cancer?

Bladder cancer is fairly common. To begin with we might mention that most bladder cancers are transitional cell carcinomas (cancer that begins in cells that normally make up the inner lining of the bladder). Cancer that forms in the tissues of your bladder (which is the organ that stores urine). There are other type which include squamous cell carcinoma (cancer that begins in thin, flat cells) and also adenocarcinoma (cancer that begins in cells that make and release mucus and other fluids).

Bile Duct Cancer


This is actually a very rare cancer that forms in the part of the bile duct that is outside the liver. What is the bile duct? This is the tube that collects bile from the liver and joins a duct from the gallbladder to form the common bile duct, which then carries bile into the small intestine when food is being digested.

Appendix Cancer


Also called gastrointestinal carcinoid tumor. This is an indolent (slow-growing) cancer that forms in cells that make hormones in the lining of the gastrointestinal tract (the stomach and intestines). Quite often it occurs in the appendix (a small fingerlike pouch of the large intestine), small intestine, or rectum. Our experience has shown that having gastrointestinal carcinoid tumor increases the risk of forming other cancers of the digestive system.
