Adjunct Treatments

The following adjunct treatments are available to our patients at an additional cost. You may email us for a price list.

Coley’s Toxins

(AKA Mixed Bacterial Vaccine or Fever Therapy) The formula for Coleys Toxins was developed by William Coley, MD, in 1893 when he was a surgeon at Memorial Hospital in New York City, now known as Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. Building on the work of earlier physicians in Germany, Dr. Coley developed a mixture of bacterial cultures that elicit an immune response. Coley’s Toxins has shown to be effective in some bone and soft tissue sarcomas, but less so in melanomas and carcinomas. Patients may experience transitory chills and nausea along with the fever spike. Symptoms subside and temperature returns to normal within a few hours. The discomfort is short lived.

UVBI/Photoluminescence (Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation)

Although the two terms are used interchangeably, gentle, therapeutic ultraviolet blood exposure is not to be confused with common radiation exposure. Also known as oxidative therapy, it involves pre-oxygenation of the blood, followed by passing a small amount of blood through crystal tubing, exposing it to a specific frequency and high wattage, germicidal UV light, and returning it to the body. Bacterial and viral cells have thinner cell membranes and are far more susceptible to damage from UV light than healthy red and white blood cells, absorbing about 5 times as much photonic energy as healthy blood cells. When exposed to UV light, these smaller, thinner cells are destroyed. These killed cells, combined with the photonic energy given off by the treated blood, serve as antigens; stimulating the body’s immune system and enabling it to recognize cancerous cells as foreign invaders. This ‘induced secondary immune reactivation’ can last for several hours and sometimes days after treatment, depending on the patient’s overall immune system health, severity of illness, and several other factors. This procedure is FDA approved for the treatment of subcutaneous lymphoma, thus it is legal for off-label treatment of other forms of cancer as well. An additional advantage is that the ultraviolet treatment kills blood-borne viruses, such as the Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) and many others, which are now known to be the underlying viral trigger for lymphoma and many other forms of malignancy. Camelot highly recommends UVBI treatment as a safeguard against cancer recurrence.

Cancidas

The majority of cancer patients also have an overgrowth of a common fungus, candida albicans. To combat this overgrowth, our doctor may prescribe Cancidas, an anti-fungal drug developed by Merck. Cacidas is a potent intravenous antifungal agent that rids the body of candida albicans; the yeast overgrowth precursor that sets the stage for cancer.

Whole-body Hyperthermia (AKA Thermal Therapy or Thermotherapy)

A treatment whereby the temperature of the whole body, except the head, is exposed to high temperatures, raising the body temperature to 105°F. Some clinical studies have shown a significant reduction in tumor size when hyperthermia is combined with other treatments.

Sodium Bicarbonate (via nebulizer inhalation, restricted to patients with appropriate criteria)

Sodium bicarbonate is a natural alkalizing agent. Cancer, in order to thrive, must have an anaerobic (low oxygen), acidic environment; introducing sodium bicarb to the lungs via nebulizer raises the ph and alkalizes the environment so that it becomes inhospitable to cancerous cells. The qualifying criteria for this treatment is either a diagnosis of lung cancer or a form of malignancy which has metastasized to the lungs. Medical supervision is required.
