Professional Cancer Coaching
As your NAPCC Certified Professional Cancer Coach, I will have a package for you and your surgeon on patient specific anticancer drug sensitivity testing and diagnostic hematopathology.
This lab will work to accurately diagnose the disease and to arm the physicians with effective tools capable of eliminating a patient’s cancer cells or keeping tumor cells under effective control. Ultimately, their goal is to help physicians prolong their patient’s life and improve its quality. That means being a true partner with patients and physicians in establishing an accurate diagnosis and finding the most effective means to treat the disease.
Surgery suppresses important immune functions needed to kill metastatic tumor cells. The patient should consider taking supplements that enhance immune function, such as melatonin, lactoferrin, and garlic, before and after surgery.
Avoiding analgesic drugs, such as morphine and other opiates, helps prevent immune suppression and the development of tumor angiogenesis. For pain suppression in the postoperative environment, the drug tramadol can be discussed with your physician in lieu of morphine or other opiates.
