Nowadays technologies are rapidly developing. Something that only yesterday seemed impossible in the nearest future often becomes our reality going ahead of all predictions.
One of such technologies is biohacking.
Speaking briefly, biohacking is the desire to use the latest achievements of medical technologies in order to improve the functioning of body systems, health, and prolong the active phase of life.
Treatment of cancer patients within integrative oncology implies active implementation of elements of biohacking.
The central element of biohacking in cancer treatment the realization of a synergetic mechanism.
Clinical studies show that while treating mutant melanoma, acquired drug resistance usually appears in most patients within one year. In other words, medicines, which have successfully been used before, stop working. That is why applying biohacking in conjunction with traditional methods is so important.
It is difficult to imagine biohacking without food supplements.
The use of supplements, together with a healthy diet, physical exercise, and the absence of bad habits, play an important role in cancer prevention.
Food supplements that are used for improvement of immune functioning and protection from cancer diseases can be divided into several groups. Antioxidants, which are natural immune modulators, are one of them.
They can neutralize free radicals (particles that form in the body due to the influence of factors from both the internal and external environment).
Food supplements that are used in biohacking are elements of complex therapy for cancer diseases at the initial stage and during the rehabilitation period of cancer patients.
Supplements in biohacking are becoming regulators of a number of immune functions. They support:
When discussing the use of vitamin D in biohacking, one should base on the results of researches. One of them says that the use of this vitamin increases the efficiency of photodynamic therapy in breast cancer models.
The latest results of melanoma treatment showed that vitamin D has an antiproliferative effect on tumour cells and also has its own immunomodulating activity.
Practice in the Onco.Rehab clinic proved the efficacy of vitamin D in combination with photodynamic therapy.
It is possible to claim that vitamin D itself does not cure, but together with other treating methods, it helps the immune system fight against the disease.
Curcumin is a coloring pigment that gets its medical activity from curcuminoids. They are concentrated on the root of an Indian herb turmeric that is famous for its treating properties.
Its uniqueness helps not only maintain beauty and health, turmeric is also used in biohacking for cancer treatment.
Clinical studies have found many effects while using turmeric in biohacking. They include:
Melatonin exposure clinical trials are still ongoing. However, the necessity of its usage in biohacking for cancer treatment is already beyond question.
It is now clear that treating cancer patients with melatonin can significantly increase the suppressed survivability of cells in a dose-dependent manner especially when combined with vemurafenib.
In addition, melatonin decreases the toxicity of vemurafenib and boosts its antitumor effect.
Melatonin influences three mechanisms of gene expression:
Combined usage of the natural endogenous hormone melatonin and analogues of vemurafenib (dabrafenib) in the Onco.Rehab clinic is considered to be a promising therapeutic strategy for overcoming drug resistance during the treatment of melanoma.
Biohacking in the Onco.Rehab clinic is aimed at helping our patients whereas giving them hope.
To get a consultation/hospitalization in OOO “Onkoklinika” you should go to the clinic residence (oncology clinic) at the place of your and take a reference (057-U) with the signature of your treating doctor and the seal of the medical organization.
The manager contacts patients just after the concilium of doctors (every Thursday) where the specialists look through all the documents and make a decision about the necessary treatment.
