We could tell you all about the treatment provided at our alternative cancer therapy center. Our mind-body approach has made Issels Treatment® a leader in individualized immunotherapy for more than 60 years. But we’re proud and honored to let our patients speak for us.

  • In early 2007 Jacinta McShane arrived at Issels from her home in England. She had been battling recurring breast cancer with lung metastases, choosing to come here after refusing her doctors’ advice to begin radiation and chemotherapy. “Nothing really prepared me for the inspirational, loving atmosphere of this healing oasis. Here I was ‘cared for’ as Jacinta – a person first and foremost who happens to have breast cancer. At times, I felt more like an invited guest than a patient at all.” She continues to lead a happy, healthy life.
  • Joseph Momot came to us in June 2010 after being told his liver cancer was terminal and he had only a few months left. “It was a really, really rapid recovery for me so I call it a miracle place.” His liver is now functioning normally and he’s able to walk freely.
  • After round-the-clock chemotherapy for leukemia, Barbara Humphrey decided against a bone marrow transplant and came to Issels instead. “They care about you just like they would about someone in their own family … That’s what I love about the Issels clinic – you become empowered with so much knowledge.”

Nothing gives us more satisfaction than helping our patients to resume healthy and productive lives.  Please call 888.447.7357 or contact us online for more information.

5 Ways to Cut Your Cancer Risk

Ways to Reduce the Risk of Getting Cancer

“Right now, there’s no sure way to prevent breast cancer, but we know healthy habits significantly decrease your risk,” Debbie Saslow, the American Cancer Society’s director of breast and gynecologic cancer, recently told AARP The Magazine. Studies indicate that what is true of breast cancer can, in many cases, be successfully applied to other cancers with equally beneficial results.

The advent of Big Data has allowed cancer researchers to sift incredible amounts of patient data through highly sophisticated computer sieves. The result has been the discovery of myriad, often previously unknown, behavioral, health, environmental and genetic commonalities among people who develop the same type of cancer. While scientists continue to grapple with the “hows” and “whys,” it is clear that certain health and lifestyle choices can and with alarming statistical frequency do increase the likelihood of cancer development.

While scientists are still working to bring the mechanisms of cancer risk into focus, recent discoveries, backed by decades of experiential data, strongly indicate that five specific health habits have the potential to significantly decrease cancer risk. Interestingly, all are general health habits that support and strengthen the body’s immune system. Individualized immunotherapy, considered by many researchers to be cancer’s kryptonite, is ushering in what is being heralded as a new age in cancer treatment that is increasing medical focus on risk avoidance and cancer prevention.
