PALINEE SUTHISARUNSAK from Thailand suffered multiple myeloma stage IV. During her stay, she showed us her smooth neck with tumor disappeared after the treatment. We couldn’t imagine that there was a tumor measuring 5*3cm in her neck due to multiple myeloma infiltration of the skin. Cancer disabled her ability to walk. According to her attending doctor, after a combined treatment of interventional therapy and natural therapy, her tumor marker and globulin have been reduced from 73 to 27 in which the normal range is between 20 to 30. All she need is to take regular monitoring.

At first, she didn’t detect any symptom. It was until Feb. 2017 that she felt intense pain in the back and waist, along with numbness and pain in right lower limb. In March, she took MRI for lumbar, which turned out to be bone metastasis. Local doctor assumed it must be cancer. Though she knows well about her own condition, she was surprised when being told the diagnosis of multiple myeloma. In Thailand, cancer basically means death to most people and the most common treatment for cancer is chemotherapy. “The reason why I don’t want systemic chemotherapy is the severe side effects such as hair loss, body weakness and vomit.” she said.

Her attending doctor explained that as a totally different therapy from systemic chemotherapy, interventional therapy directly injects anticancer drugs into the tumor without harming normal tissues. Moreover, it has advantages of short-time duration, highly repeatable and fewer side effects, which offer strong supplement for patients to achieve good efficacy in short period.

How We Treat Cancer?

Interventional Therapy

Interventional Therapy is a new substitute of traditional chemotherapy, which means that a physician introduces instruments such as needles or catheters (long, thin tubes) into the body through tiny(1-2 mm) incisions in the skin. The instruments are then guided by an imaging technique called fluoroscopy to the cancer tumor. In this way, the physician can deliver cancer medicine directly to the tumor.more info

Cryotherapy Therapy

Cryotherapy Therapy, also known as “Argon-Helium Knife Cryotherapy”, is a new substitute of traditional physical therapy. Practically speaking it is “extreme cold + extreme heat” cancer treatment. Generally, a minimum of 10-15 minutes is required to achieve an extreme analgesic (pain relieving) effect while lowering the temperature to the injured area, thus reducing the metabolic rate and swelling associated with tissue injury.more info

Particle Knife

Particle Knife is a new substitute of traditional radiation therapy. With the help of computer Treatment Planning System (TPS), radioactive particles will be implanted into tumors. The particles which release γ-rays can continuously kill tumor and cause destruction targeting tumor cells. With time, the radiation amount would accumulate to be large enough to destroy the DNA double strands of tumor cells.more info
