At Angeles hospital in Mexico we use a unique program called Functional Oncology. Detoxification is one of the tools we use to promote healing and lay the ground for more intensive cancer suppression techniques.

Key Influential Factors in the detoxification process include:

Milk thistle

Milk thistle

Milk thistle is also known as Silybum marianum and milk thistle herb has been used for thousands of years to heal a variety of ailments, particularly liver and gall bladder issues. Scientific studies have found that substances in milk thistle (especially the flavonoid silymarin) work to protect the liver from toxins, including drugs like acetaminophen (Tylenol), which in high doses (or when taken with alcohol) can cause liver damage. Silymarin has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties and helps the liver regenerate by growing new cells.

Other treatment methods that improve the elimination of waste will be included in your customized program. Physically able people will be encouraged to exercise or undertake other physical activity that is integrated as part of the detoxification program. Other treatments might include:

Colon therapy

The Angeles Functional Oncology treatment program underlines the importance of a healthy colon and administers various colon therapies for detoxification. The colon houses the body’s largest concentration of bacteria, which is vital for the proper function and health of the colon. bad dietary/lifestyle habits, dehydration, Inadequate dietary fiber, and bad (pathogenous) bacteria are all contributors to the toxic overload and impaired elimination of the colon. The colon’s natural resource of ‘good’ bacteria counteracts these negative impacts on the colon when the body is correctly balanced.

Extra corporeal filtering

“Extra corporeal” means “outside the body”. This filtering therapy takes place outside the body through the use of perfusion: Blood is pumped out through a central line, passes through a UV light and is filtered to remove cellular debris and micro-organisms.
