Dr. Belanger has a three-step approach when working with a person with uterine cancer.
Step one: He frequently orders a test that determines what drugs and natural medicines are best at inducing cell death of the uterine cancer cells found in a person’s blood. He works with a lab called RGCC in Greece. This lab isolates circulating uterine cancer cells from the bloodstream and tests over fifty natural substances including curcumin, IV vitamin C and resveratrol and over fifty drugs to determine which have the greatest ability to induce cancer cell death. Dr. Belanger will use this information to construct a plan which will include recommending the best drug regimen on the RGCC test and adding nutritional supplements which may improve the ability of the drug to induce uterine cancer cell death while reducing the drugs toxicity on healthy cells. In addition, he will use the RGCC test to select two or three nutritional supplements which came up the highest at inducing uterine cancer cell death.
Step two: He orders over five panels at a variety of labs to assess imbalances in the patient’s immune system. In order for cancer to grow and create symptoms and/or appear on a scan, it needs to escape a person’s immune system. Dr. Belanger does extensive tests to determine how and why the uterine cancer cells were not destroyed by a patient’s immune system and he uses this information to select nutritional supplements that correct these imbalances. To determine if these imbalances have been eliminated, he retests the abnormal immune labs to make sure they have been restored to normal. This helps him determine that the patient’s immune cells are now capable of destroying uterine cancer cells in the future.
Step three: Dr. Belanger orders a third panel of lab tests from over three separate laboratories to determine what is stimulating the growth and potential spread of the uterine cancer cells. In order for a tumor to grow beyond a few millimeters it needs an adequate blood supply to provide it with a constant supply of nutrients and oxygen. There are numerous blood vessel stimulators in addition to IGF-1 that are commonly produced by uterine cancer cells that can be detected in the blood. Dr. Belanger measures over ten of these growth factors and prepares a customized blend of nutritional supplements to decrease their levels. After about one month, he remeasures any growth factor that was elevated to help ensure that the cancer is being “starved” and not able to build anymore new blood vessels.
"After having surgery in March 2007 to remove a mass which was outside my uterus, I was diagnosed with uterine sarcoma Stage 4. I was referred to an oncologist who explained to me that this was a rare cancer that had not responded to any treatment. He did not give me much hope and told me to go home and put my affairs in order.
In July of 2007, my chiropractor gave me information to contact Dr. James Belanger at Lexington Natural Health Center. I met with Dr. Belanger and he explained to me in much more detail how the cancer works and that even though there might not be a cure, there were ways to control it. With his positive thinking, he gave me new hope.
With his instructions, I have changed my eating patterns and taken supplements regularly. The bloodwork that he sends me for tells far more about what is going on in my body than many routine tests that the oncologist sends you for.
It is now two years later. I feel well and healthier than ever before. I have found Dr. Belanger to be very knowledgeable and has answered any questions that I have. The cancer is not gone, but with his help, we have waged a battle to control it and so far we are winning."
