Steven’s Positive Outcome Against Cancer with Integrative Treatment at Verita Life

Steven, 46, from Scotland, was diagnosed with Acinic Cell Cancer, an unusual form of cancer that manifests within the salivary glands. His case worsened when the cancer metastasised to his lungs.

After an initial round of Treatment at Verita Life in late 2016, Steven returned to Thailand for further assessment from the clinic’s medical team.

Treatment Protocol and Improvements

After returning to Verita Life, Steven had a Positron Emission Tomography (PET) scan which confirmed that his tumours appeared no longer active (i.e. no FDG uptake). This was a clear indication that Steven had successfully compromised his cancer.

With all the PET scans I’ve had, this is the first time I’ve had this result. So it effectively means that the cancer is no longer active. It looks like we’ve broken the back of it. And we’re really happy about that.”

Plans For the Future

Steven is planning to continue the healthy lifestyle he has started to build in Verita Life.

Initially my lifestyle changed to fight the cancer. But now, I’ll definitely be undertaking a continuation of what I’ve been doing in terms of lifestyle change. I’ll definitely not go back to the unhealthy lifestyle I had before.”

Steven’s First Round of Integrative Treatment with Verita Life

Steven was diagnosed with Acinic Cell Cancer over 4 years ago and had chosen to go down a Conventional Treatment path, to which he reported a struggle over the side effects from both Radiotherapy and Immunotherapy (Keytruda). Nevertheless, Steven’s life came to a twist once more when the cancer had metastasized to his lungs, however this time, he was certain of his choice for Integrative Treatment. After learning about Verita Life from an educational medical fair in Malaysia, Steven reached out to inquire further regarding his Personalised Treatment Plan to which he was exceedingly impressed.

Overall Treatment Experience

In his interview, Steven admitted he had been to over 22 clinics and hospitals from Germany, USA, UK, Singapore, Thailand, and Mexico to consult with oncologists regarding his treatment plan. Whilst most of the clinics offered limited Conventional and Alternative Treatments, Steven became particularly impressed with Verita Life’s multiple approaches to treating cancer; attacking cancer cells and boosting the overall immune system at the same time.

At Verita Life during his treatment round in Bangkok, Steven received IPT, Low Dose of Chemotherapy, Dendritic Cell Therapy, Hyperthermia and other natural treatments including Vitamin C and Turmeric via IV.

Words of Encouragement

Steven has a special message for all cancer patients who are facing a similar situation to himself,

I would certainly encourage any patients to really look at all the options before deciding to go down a certain path. I tell you without a word of a lie, I’ve consulted with 22 clinics from Germany, USA, Mexico, UK, Singapore, and I did not find one as good as Verita Life. I wish there were many more places like Verita Life around the world.”

What is Acinic Cell Carcinoma?

Acinic Cell Carcinoma is the presence of a malignant tumour within the salivary glands. This form of cancer is highly uncommon, occurring only in 2% cases of salivary tumours. It is usually observable through the slow growth of mass within the mouth. In 50% of cases, it also comes with pain, tenderness and at times, facial paralysis.

At present, the cause for the formation of this form of cancer is still largely unknown. One factor being considered is the genetic predisposition to the disease. There have been no definite risk factors identified. However, salivary gland cancers, in general, are influenced by exposure to hazardous chemicals and radiation.

Conventional Treatment for the condition involves the use of Chemotherapy, Radiation Therapy and Surgery meant to remove the growth.

Verita Life provides a variety of therapies and procedures suited to the needs of Acinic Cell Cancer patients. IPT provides patients with a lower-dose of chemo, weakening cancer cells without the well-documented side effects. Local Hyperthermia targets tumours with high temperatures to weaken cancer. Biological Treatments such as Dendritic Cell Therapy and Nutrient IVs target the immune system, boosting natural defences against cancer. Also, patients are required to undergo a customised anti-cancer diet which is designed to rid the body of unhealthy substances and deprive the Cancer of the fuel it consumes for growth.

All of these treatments are punctuated with patient education to ensure that they maintain a healthy lifestyle even after their treatment at Verita Life.
