Essential background information - now, how can I best use it?
From a holistic perspective, cancer is not an isolated event. Likewise, the formation of a cancerous growth is no matter of coincidence, because the bodily systems are in a general state of poor health. Either the cancer emerged due to bodily abnormalities, or was at least "allowed" to grow - doesn't that sound conclusive?
Therefore, it cannot be sufficient to combat the tumour itself; instead, the sound health of bodily systems as a whole must be restored.
This means that a sound cancer treatment basically consists of two phases:
If it turns out that elimination of the cancer was unsuccessful, then both of these treatment types overlap and must (for instance) be performed simultaneously.
Therefore, the Kroiss-Krebs-Zentrum has specialised in the following procedures:
Therapy "towards sound health" - what is that supposed to mean?
In principle, one should understand that any illness usually consists of two different components - and that it is therefore essential to apply two different therapy concepts in order to restore a sound state of health. These two components are:
For example, if someone is affected by frequently-recurring inflammatory disorders (for instance, cystitis, bronchitis, angina ...), then it is possible to treat each recurrent inflammation with "acute" therapy methods - for instance, by using antibiotics each time. Yet in that case, the tendency towards recurrence is not halted. That is to say, the "chronic" factor was not yet taken into consideration and not treated accordingly - this approach requires yet another set of measures.
Those affected by rheumatoid arthritis face a similar situation: In the initial stage, it is indeed possible to use pain relievers or "anti-inflammatory" agents ("anti-rheumatoid agents") - yet one must be aware that these only suppress the symptoms instead of restoring health. It is possible to do that; yet immediately thereafter, one must immediately attend to eliminating the rheumatoid arthritis itself! This is the even more important part of such a therapy - in order to restore a sound state of health.
That is to say, the second component of therapy would be that which addresses the "chronic" aspect - otherwise, the illness would remain.
The measures which address the "chronic" aspect of the disorder are intended to promote health. These are normally offered by holistic medical specialists and by physicians specialising in naturopathy.
As one can already now more readily recognise, "scientific medicine" restricts itself primarily to acute-medical methods, so that the second component is not left by the wayside. People also complain frequently of this drawback, calling it "the treatment of mere symptoms".
In cases of cancer, this is no different. That is to say, the previous remarks indicate that for a successful therapy, two steps are necessary:
Since both of these methods are usually applied consecutively, we also call them "Phase 1" and "Phase 2" therapies. The first of these (A) must be applied rapidly and with urgency; when this is done, the therapies in the second category should follow. The first of these are called "acute" procedures, because they are (in a manner of speaking) "rapid emergency actions" to achieve tumour reduction. Nearly all methods applied by scientific medicine fall into this category, yet of course, there are also alternative acute procedures.
Item B) refers to procedures which treat the patient's basic state of health; these require a great deal more time, which one only has when the immediate danger is eliminated (for instance, following surgery) and one does not once again wait until the very last minute to take action.
These procedures aim to eliminate the basis for the spread of the disorder - that is to say, to turn "cancer-friendly" bodily systems into healthy, "cancer-hostile" ones. This is absolutely necessary to restoring a sound state of health!
