Injection therapies administer vitamins directly into the body, thus bypassing the digestive system and liver, which deplete essential nutrients. Injections put 100% of the nutrients into the bloodstream, avoiding patient problems absorbing nutrients through the digestive system. Injections are selected based on your unique health factors, other medications and medical history.
Mistletoe Lectin Therapy
Mistletoe lectin therapy is an alternative medicine that uses extracts from the mistletoe plant to help treat various health conditions. This specialized treatment is effective for cancer, autoimmune disorders, and chronic pain.
One key component of mistletoe lectin therapy is high-dose intravenous infusions. These infusions are delivered directly into the bloodstream, allowing the mistletoe extract to enter the body and quickly work on your symptoms.
Another vital aspect of mistletoe lectin therapy is its ability to target specific parts of the immune system to modulate inflammatory responses, boost immune function, and control pain levels.
Diet is an essential component of beating cancer but is so often overlooked. Countless studies have already shown that our diet is very much linked with cancer.
A study by Dr. Anderson, MD Cancer Center found that of 1169 women diagnosed with breast cancer, high body mass index (obesity) was significantly correlated with lower overall survival. Obesity correlates with a higher risk of mortality from breast cancer. What happens when we begin exercising and have already been diagnosed with cancer? Does it improve our survival?
After analyzing 933 women with breast cancer, a study found that women who did moderate-intensity exercise ( a brisk walk 2-3 hours/week) either before or after diagnosis had a 45% lower risk of death than women who were inactive both before and after diagnosis.

Treatments for Lymphedema
Lymphedema affects lymphatic vessels responsible for transporting protein-rich fluid (Lymphatic fluid) back into the circulatory system. When lymph vessels or lymph nodes are missing, impaired, damaged, removed or malformed, the liquid isn’t correctly transported or filtered, and an accumulation of Lymphatic fluid occurs. This results in the condition known as Lymphedema.
