Alternative Cancer Therapy
Natural Horizons is one of the premier alternative cancer treatment centers on the East Coast. We take a holistic approach to treating cancer, beginning with with a comprehensive health evaluation. We assess factors affecting the health of multiple body systems in order to develop an alternative cancer therapy that is best for each patient.
Cancer Treatment Overview
All cancer therapy should include focus on eliminating causative factors and directly fighting tumors-especially in latter-stage cancers. Furthermore, therapies should differ depending upon the type and causative agent(s) of the cancer.
Since cancer is a disease with multiple initiating factors, optimal therapy practices utilize a multi-pronged approach. Alternative cancer treatment approaches attempt where possible, to zero in on eliminating the significant underlying causes of cancer so that the body can heal itself.
Because the body's immune system fights off and helps reverse many early cancer formations, all therapies need to address strengthening of the immune system to help the body fight any cancer cells that are formed every day.

Alternative Cancer Treatment Centers Offer A Wider Variety Of Holistic Cancer Treatment Options
Alternative Cancer Therapy
Natural Horizons Wellness Centers offer holistic cancer treatment options that provide more than just the standard chemotherapy and radiation practices at other types of facilities. Cancer affects every person in a vastly unique way; treatment should reflect the personal nature of cancer.
Cancer is more than just a diagnosis — the condition changes virtually every aspect of a person’s life, from physical health to emotional well-being. Cancer can also metastasize and spread beyond the original source. Our alternative cancer treatment centers recognize the unique nature of the disease. These facilities incorporate therapies and treatments that focus on the whole-body experience of cancer.
Cancer is different from many other diseases in several ways: There are more than 100 types of cancer with a variety of causes, ranging from radiation exposure to poor lifestyle choices — and each cancer acts in a distinctive way to cause illness. Unlike many conditions that affect only one organ or set of organs, cancer affects numerous body systems, especially as it spreads during later stages of the disease. Cancer is also unlike many unpreventable diseases in that an individual has a varying amount of control over exposure to cancer causing agents.
Holistic Treatment Approach
Just as cancer is not a one-size-fits-all condition that stays contained, treatment must be highly individualized and focused on treating the whole body rather than just the cancer cells. Therapy should strive to eliminate the various causes of cancer and directly target tumors, especially in cases of cancer in the late stages. Standard cancer therapy approaches vary greatly depending on the cancer type, cause and stage of progression.
Holistic and alternative cancer therapies are even more individualized and personalized in that these approaches tend to the patient’s overall health in addition to treating the disease at its source. Whenever possible, alternative treatment approaches attempt to focus on eliminating significant underlying causes of cancer. Natural cancer treatments also optimize the body’s own healing processes.
All therapies strive to strengthen the immune system in a way that helps the body in the daily battle to fight the formation of new cancer cells. Natural cancer treatments optimize the immune system to help the body win this battle.
