Dr Tavakkoli established the Quantum Clinic in East Sussex about a year ago. Her primary focus, from the start, has been to support people with cancer. She is now planning a bold step to introduce a form of therapy at the Quantum Clinic never previously available in the UK. It’s a highly sophisticated form of hyperthermia called oncothermia, which combines electrical therapy with increased tissue temperature. It has many advantages over traditional hyperthermia and is producing some noteworthy improvements in 5 year survival for a whole range of cancers, including some that are very hard to treat. Alongside the introduction of oncothermia, Dr Tavakkoli is also planning to expand the scope of her therapeutic protocol in several ways.

The Wrong Path 

An interview with Prof Thomas Seyfried 

Click here to listen

Professor Seyfried’s book ‘Cancer as a Metabolic Disease’ has proved to be a 'game changer’. Until it’s publication in 2012, metabolic theory had been lost in the long grass for half a century or more, and practitioners who supported patients metabolically were ranked amongst the quacks and charlatans. But metabolic theory is now back on the table once more, even though the ‘establishment’ is trying hard not to notice it there. If Professor Seyfried is correct in his assertions - that cancer is fundamentally a metabolic rather than a genetic disease - then the implications for treatment, as well as prevention, are enormous.

Dr Trefzer is the Medical Director of one of the UK’s longest running integrative clinics for cancer and other chronic diseases - Hightree Clinic in Uckfield, Sussex. Integrative Medicine is far less developed in the UK than in some other European counties or the US, and the healthcare environment in which the clinic has operated for the last decade has been anything but supportive. But the importance of such initiatives and of of thinking ‘outside the box’ to people with cancer wanting to look beyond the confines of conventional care cannot be understated. In this week’s show, Robin Daly visits Hightree to talk about the approaches on offer there and to discuss developments in the healthcare and regulatory environments in the UK and further afield.

Will this inevitably lead to a complete ban now that other suitable materials are available, and what can we do to counter the powerful forces of commerce that promote the continued use of known toxins in society?

In the best case scenario, a test will save unnecessary treatments and wasted time and money, and give confidence that chosen treatments are working.The blood tests offered in Germany by Prof Pachmann hold out a lot of promise to people with a broad range of cancers and so deserves investigation.

An interview with Liz Butler

Click here to listen

Hardly a week goes by without a new discovery in relation to the gut microbiome being reported in the news. It’s a hot topic, both within Integrative Medicine circles and conventional research. It’s a complete turnaround in our view of bacteria and viruses from being targeted for chemical eradication in our homes and our bodies, to being able to appreciate them as our partners in life, without which we simply can’t survive. And unless we start to change our view, we will continue down a path of declining gut health with the consequential decline in our own wellbeing.

How to Starve Cancer

An interview with Jane McLelland

Click here to listen

Jane McLelland is one of those people for whom a cancer diagnosis seems to bring out a level of determination and resourcefulness that is the stuff of pioneers. With almost two decades under her belt since first diagnosis, Jane has left no stone unturned to find ways to regain her health. And one of the most unusual resources she has placed a lot of importance on has been, and still is, the use of off-label or out-of-patent drugs. These are generally old, safe drugs that have been developed for another health issue, but have been noted to have an effect on cancer. This however has not led to their common use with cancer, primarily for commercial reasons, rather than anything to do with their potential benefits to patients. In this week’s show, Jane talks about the latest developments in this field and about her forthcoming book, How to Starve Cancer.

The disturbing news emerged recently that over half of the recent new drugs approved for cancer gave no clinical benefit to patients at all, despite their enormous costs. This brings into question the whole edifice of Evidence Based Medicine (EBM) and whether it is fit for purpose and capable of delivering any meaningful progress. Jerome Burne takes a strong interest in the forces at work in the development of healthcare, so in the show, we lift the lid on EBM and discuss the future of cancer care.

Politicians have been wanting to introduce patient choice and patient-centred care into the NHS for decades. Now, with the advent of Personal Health Budgets, closely followed by Integrated Personal Commissioning, this is beginning to become a reality, for some. And the results are revolutionary:  not only is the care far better, it is also significantly cheaper - a genuine win-win move. James Sanderson is Head of Personalisation for NHS England, and in the show he tells us about the emergence of personalisation and of plans going forward. Jo Reeder and Colin Royle round off the show with reports ‘from the coal face’, delivering Personal Health Budgets.

Given the resistance to the introduction of holistic approaches that the NHS has maintained, this is a considerable step towards integration. In the show, Nicholas Dimbleby talks about the development of the charity and the service, and we visit the impressive new Dimbleby Cancer Care Centre to talk to Director, Robin Pritchard and Complementary Therapies Co-ordinator, Camilla Weijburg.

In many instances, this has meant travelling to the continent. Patricia makes it her business to know what’s on offer at the many specialist integrative clinics, what patients think about them, and she has visited many of them personally.

In this week’s show, we go into the pluses and minuses of travelling abroad for treatment to gain some clarity on who stands to benefit from looking ‘outside the box’ of UK healthcare.

Mesothelioma - a growing UK public health crisis

An interview with Liz Darlison & Karen Lord

Click here to listen

Mesothelioma is a UK public health crisis. Asbestos-related cancer is on the rise and its effect is devastating. Due to the 30-odd year lapse between exposure and diagnosis, we are now paying heavily for the careless use of asbestos in our homes, schools, hospitals and workplaces  up until it was banned in the 1980s. 

Liz Darlison is a Clinical Nurse Specialist, and is Director of Services at Mesothelioma UK. Karen Lord has recently been appointed as a Mesothelioma Clinical Nurse Specialist (CNS) at Glenfield Hospital, Leicester, a post funded by Mesothelioma UK. 

In this week’s show, I find out more about the disease, about what the NHS have on offer to those diagnosed and about Mesothelioma UK’s work to provide support.

Patient experience is as important as clinical outcome

An interview with Tom Cottam of Macmillan Cancer Care

Macmillan is running a campaign to establish Patient Experience as a measurable target, on a par with Clinical Outcome. Too often patients report major shortcomings in the way they are talked to and related to within NHS care, shortcomings that can result in long-term physical or emotional suffering. This campaign seeks to elevate the status of Patient Experience, to the point where NHS staff recognise it as every bit as important as the clinical results that are currently the main focus of effort and attention.

Dr Francisco Contreras, Medical Director of the Oasis of Hope Hospital in Mexico, is my guest this week on the Yes to Life Show. The Oasis has been helping cancer patients for more than half a century, predominantly with techniques that target cancer metabolism. Within the prevailing climate that has favoured genetic theory for most of that time, the metabolic approach has been controversial. But that is beginning to change now, as metabolic theory is finding fresh support amongst a new generation of researchers and practitioners. In the show, I discuss the two views of cancer and what each can bring to integrative practice.
