Revolutionary Laser Treatment Could Cure Breast Cancer in 15 Minutes

For most, the diagnosis of Cancer is near that of a death sentence; sketchy, costly, and draining treatments have low statistical success, and alternative means have yet to rise to attention in a world desperate for healing. However, in the realm of allopathic medicine, a new discovery may be the fix-it solution sought after for four different cancers. Most appealing is the effect of this breakthrough treatment which could kill off breast cancer in mere minutes – completely removing the need for a mastectomy, a procedure which, unfortunately, has also been on the rise.

An inside look into the revolutionary treatment follows cancer patient, Fiona Fischer. Diagnosed earlier this summer with Breast Cancer after voicing concern about the top of her left breast which felt thickened and granular, she sought her doctor’s advice and was astounded when was suggested the first move should be to try and kill the tumor by blasting it with a laser for 15 minutes.

The revolutionary treatment involves injecting a drug into the tumor which makes it sensitive to light, then, via a needle, an intensive later beam is shone upon it for fifteen minutes. One of four patients undergoing this new technique, Mrs. Fischer, 57, a self-employed management consultant from North London, confirmed that “The whole thing was less invasive than the biopsy that I had to confirm the diagnosis of Cancer”.

While criticism may be gained from skeptics and cancer doctors concerned about the he gullibility of patients who fall for unproven and expensive treatment, it seems Fiona is actually at the center of one of the most carefully considered and authoritative experiments in the field of breast cancer treatments, allopathically speaking.

This revolutionary treatment is known as Photodynamic therapy, a cancer therapy introduced into the UK 25 years ago and which is now approved by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE). It is now approved for the following four cancers: the skin (through the melanoma), early or late cancers of head and neck, lung, and oesophageal.

“It’s an extraordinary treatment that cuts the cost and time involved and means patients don’t have to undergo other treatments that cause very unpleasant side effects,” said David Longman, founder of the charity Killing Cancer. “It’s also quick; patients and their families know within a short period of time whether the cancer has been destroyed.”

Until recently the treatment had a major drawback: it stayed in the body for weeks, causing patients to be ultra-sensitive to ordinary light, and unable to leave the house for weeks after the treatment. However, using new drugs which leave the body within 48 hours has made the procedure possible.

As with all the trial patients, Fiona spent 48 hours after her treatment in a darkened room in a private ward of the Royal Free Hospital. According to her it was a ‘wonderful and luxurious rest’.

Experts predict that Photodynamic Therapy could eventually make the non-invasive treatment the norm for some types of breast cancer. In other words, a potential cure without surgery is being presented.

There are many positive draws to this method; if successful, it works without affecting the surrounding healthy tissue, leaving the breasts completely intact. However this is the first trial of Photodynamic Therapy that tests for primarily newly diagnosed breast cancer.

The initial stage of the trial is a ‘dose-escalating’ study to discover the most effective combination dose of drugs and light, with the patients receiving an MRI scan before and after the treatment to gauge it’s impact on the tumor. The trial has a harsh downside, however; because the treatment is unproven, all the women undergoing the treatment have to agree to undergo a full mastectomy afterward: the trial cannot put the participants at any risk of their cancer returning. But the tissue removed during the mastectomy will be analyzed to check the effects of the Photodynamic Therapy.

This is why after just a few days of undergoing the radical treatment, Fiona returned to the NHS operating theatre at a hospital to have a full mastectomy, as well as reconstruction of her left breast. Procedure will continue with her then undergoing chemotherapy and radiotherapy, followed by a course of hormonal tablets, the most common treatment for suppressing sickly cells.

Fiona does not look down at the required surgery of treatment, however. “I may be getting no benefit myself, but to know my contribution might change the experience of breast cancer for women in the future makes it worthwhile,” she says.

Lack of properly funded research from other centers has not deterred the Royal Free Team’s effort in discovering the truth about Photodynamic Therapy. While there has been other research conducted on this new treatment, Cancer Research UK currently considers it ‘too risky’. Even more, NICE’s approval of Photodynamic Therapy for skin and oesophageal cancer comes with a warning that the evidence in favor of it is of ‘poor quality’, and hospitals should consider this when deciding to use.

Still, the first phase of the trials are recruiting patients, and the team hopes to recruit larger groups of women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer but refuse a mastectomy due to personal reasons, or are unfit for surgery.

Optimistic results from future trials is clearly sought after from those doctors and researchers desperately seeking a cure. With further research and observation underway, it is likely more news will come out about the success fulness of this treatment in the future.

While the findings so far have not shown to be conclusively in favor of Photodynamic Therapy, alternative means of ‘treating cancer have also shown positive result. There are other means of counteracting the oxygen-deprived cells which require no invasive surgery or unnatural method of body manipulation.

From a holistic point of view, because western medicine continues to create treatments to counteract modern day ‘diseases’, the actual cause is not being treated. It is proven that through the following lifestyle choices, one can drastically reduce their likelihood of procuring breast cancer, just one of the many symptoms the body can manifest due to unsustainable life habits.

Sources listed below all overlap in the belief that the underlying reason behind Cancer or any disease is due to poor diet, unsustainable lifestyle patterns, and rampant stress (among many other factors, of course). Specified guideline and recommendation all incorporate the basic principles of detoxifying the body, alkalizing the cells, breathing fresh air, incorporating body movement, letting go of stress, engaging in activities one is passionate about, consuming a large amount of one’s food predominantly unprocessed, plant-based, and full of fresh fruits, vegetables, and leafy greens, and working through emotional bondage from years past.

Just like allopathic physicians all agree there are many variables to procuring any disease, especially Cancer, naturopathic doctors, or holistic-minded physicians, work to allow the body to heal itself through many methods which target mind, body, and spirit.

Obviously it is a personal choice of which route one journeys on in their endeavor to ‘cure cancer’, but with proper guidance and commitment, success has been shown. Sources which point to this conclusion are:

If healing from cancer alternatively is an attractive alternative to you, find a licensed practitioner whom has a steady track record in the field you need help with; laws differ in varying regions and states, but with any concern, be sure to consult your medical doctor if embarking upon alternative means to naturally heal from Cancer.

While it’s great news optimistic findings have been announced by the medical industry seeking to eliminate Cancer, it is an option to consider the source of the actual diagnosis and consider non-invasive, holistic means of treatment. All in all, there remains fastidious hope for those dealing with the hardship of such illness, and future research will only bring more conclusive findings.
