Iscador - European Mistletoe

Available clinical evidence does not support claims of anti-cancer effect, quality of life, or other outcomes from the use of mistletoe extract. Research has likewise shown little or no improvement in rigorous trials. Public interest in the United States was spurred in 2001 following actress Suzanne Somers' decision to use Iscador in lieu of chemotherapy following her treatment for breast cancer using surgery and radiotherapy.

Chelation therapy

is the administration of chelating agents to remove heavy metals from the body. Chelation therapy has a long history of use in clinical toxicology. For the most common forms of heavy metal intoxication—those involving lead, arsenic or mercury—the standard of care a number of chelating agents are available. DMSA dimercaptosuccinic acid has been recommended for the treatment of lead poisoning in children by Poison Centers around the world. Other chelating agents, such as 2,3-dimercapto-1-propanesulfonic acid (DMPS) and alpha lipoic acid (ALA), are used in conventional and alternative medicine.

No approved medical research has found any benefits to chelation therapy for any use other than removal of heavy metals from the body, and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) considers over-the-counter (OTC) chelation products to be "unapproved drugs and devices and that it is a violation of federal law to make unproven claims about these products. There are no FDA-approved OTC chelation products."

ALKALINIZING REGENERATION TREATMENT

Because there is no evidence that diet can significantly change blood pH, a highly irregular blood pH is a sign of a larger problem -- perhaps kidney failure -- not a dietary issue.

People with kidney disease or medical issues that require monitoring by a doctor, such as severe diabetes, should not attempt this diet without medical supervision.

"If someone's blood sugar is not being monitored properly -- especially if they're on insulin if they're type 1 or they're a severe type 2 diabetic -- you're potentially running the risk of your blood sugar dropping too low after a meal if you don't know what you're doing," Nolan says.

It all comes down to balance, Asplin says. The alkaline diet could potentially over-restrict protein and calcium.
The proposal also neglects to recognize that it is "virtually impossible" to create a less acidic environment in the body. "Extreme" dietary plans such as this diet have more risks than benefits for patients with cancer

COLON HYDROTHERAPY

No scientific evidence supports the alleged benefits of colon cleansing and it "has no known medical value and risks damage to the rectum or bowel." The bowel itself is "not dirty” and, unless disease or medication interfere, "nature does a fine job of clearing out wastes."

Hyperthermia Therapy
Via Indiba devices which is according to their website mostly a beauty technology.

INDIBA is innovation. Since its inception the company has designed, manufactured and supplied radiofrequency devices through a unique technology, which is exclusive and patented. The radiofrequency treatments are a very effective solution to help professionals in the field of physiotherapy, sports medicine, rehabilitation, aesthetic medicine, plastic surgery, spa and beauty treatments to treat their patients.

Sono PhotoDynamic Therapy -

(also described as Activated therapy, ultrasound activated PDT, Sonodynamic therapy and other terms, with no clear distinction in usage) is an alternative cancer therapy which claims to use ultrasound and light to enhance the cytotoxic effects of drugs described as "sonosensitizers". It has been tested in vitro and in animals, but the results are not considered compelling and it is rejected by mainstream science.

Independent evidence of effect is lacking, such studies as have been published are in low impact factor journals, including journals specialising in "alternative" therapies.

It is cited as one of the motivations for an unprecedented initiative by health authorities in the UK, warning patients about bogus cancer treatments.

RE: Cancer Charlatans.
Poly MVA

MVA stands for minerals, vitamins, and amino acids.

The two main compounds are palladium and lipoic acid. Which both substances have nothing to do with cancer.

Glyco-benzaldehyde

sugar form of benzaldehyde?

It is commonly employed to confer almond flavor. Benzaldehyde is used chiefly as a precursor to other organic compounds, ranging from pharmaceuticals to plastic additives. The aniline dye malachite green is prepared from benzaldehyde and dimethylaniline. It is a precursor to certain acridine dyes as well. Via aldol condensations, benzaldehyde is converted into derivatives of cinnamaldehyde and styrene.

Gluthatione
Preliminary results indicate glutathione changes the level of reactive oxygen species in isolated cells grown in a laboratory, which may reduce cancer development. None of these tests were performed in humans.

However, once a cancer has already developed, by conferring resistance to a number of chemotherapeutic drugs, elevated levels of glutathione in tumour cells are able to protect cancerous cells in bone marrow, breast, colon, larynx, and lung cancers.

Laetrile
The metabolism of amygdalin produces hydrogen cyanide, a potent toxin. Beta-glucosidase, one of the enzymes that catalyzes the release of cyanide from amygdalin, is present in the human small intestine and in a variety of common foods. This leads to an unpredictable and potentially lethal toxicity when amygdalin or laetrile is taken orally. Ingestion of purified amygdalin or apricot kernels can cause severe toxicity and death due to cyanide poisoning.

Vitamin C - really?!

VCAN - Since it is prepared from the patient's own body fluids (blood, urine) the patient will not experience any type of negative immune respond.

In reality VCAN is Versican, also known as VCAN, is a large extracellular matrix proteoglycan that is present in a variety of human tissues. It is encoded by the VCAN gene.
