What is Cancer Dormancy Therapy?
 
Cancer Dormancy Therapy is a method that prolongs the cancer dormancy, so suppressed the recurrent metastasis. In other words, it is Korean medical cancer treatment to make chronic diseases like high blood pressure and diabetes cannot worsen and maintain dormancy.
 
 
 
 
Cancer treatment and recurrent metastasis
 
Generally, it’s the norm that getting surgery and anti-cancer or radiation therapy when patient detects cancer, usually below operable tertiary solid cancer. After that, if cancer does not appear through CT or PET-CT etc, patient gets regular tracking observation. In this case, cancer cell is so small that it become invisible through imaging test and over time, it grows, spreads and recurs. Therefore, it is quiet important not to grow remaining cancer cell after treatment.
 
 
 
 
Goal of Cancer Dormancy Therapy
 
 

 
Cancer Dormancy Therapy puts goal in suppression the cancer cell to grow and metastasize as shown above. If cancer continues to reproduce and to be a certain size, patient dies. By paraphrasing, if cancer can be suppressed to grow, patient will not die. This is contrary to cancer removal or cancer reduction. That is, making cancer sleep is the basic goal of Cancer Dormancy Therapy.
 
 
 
 
Methods of Cancer Dormancy Therapy
 
Cancer Dormancy Therapy practiced at East West Cancer Center of Dunsan Korean Medicine Hospital can be roughly categorized into three types.
 
1. Suppression cancer angiogenesis
 
Basically, for cancer to grow, it is essential to be given nutrition just like other parts of the body. Cancer make blood vessel by itself to receive nourishment from the body. Therefore, if new cancer angiogenesis can be suppressed, cancer is hard to grow anymore. HangAm Plus is a Korean herbal medicine developed by East West Cancer Center of Dunsan Korean Medicine Hospital, and it is already shown that it is effective for suppression of cancer angiogenesis.
 
2. Improvement immunity
 
Immunity has a significant effect on the cancer growth. If the immunity is strong, cancer cannot grow. Patients, who have low level of immunity due to anti-cancer or radiation therapy, often suffer from cancer recurrent metastasis.
At East West Cancer Center of Dunsan Korean Medicine Hospital, we apply several therapies such as acupuncture, herbal acupuncture, moxibustion, herbal medicine to increase patients’ immune function.
 
3. Directive cancer treatment
 
In cancer treatment, it is important not only to improve the body’s condition but also to suppress the propagation of cancer cells. At Ease West Cancer Center, the goal is a directive cancer treatment using multipath targeted therapy for cancer medicines. The representative medicines are “CheonRyongChungChoJung” (for lung cancer), “BackJilChungGanJung” (for liver cancer), “NoBongGiBiJung” (for cancer of the stomach). There are also anti cancer herbal acupunctures No.1, 2, 3.
 
 
 
 
Effects of Cancer Dormancy Therapy
 
Treatment comparisons of VEGF, BFGF of cancer patients at East West Cancer Center have found that Cancer Dormancy Therapy is effective for decrease in figure. (Journal of Korean Oriental Internal Medicine in 2005)
 
Effectiveness of Cancer Dormancy Therapy is as follows;
   ° Prevention of cancer recurrent metastasis
   ° Suppression the cancer having a tolerance to anti-cancer drugs to grow
   ° Increase in anticancer efficacy with anti-cancer and radiation therapy
   ° Suppression the cancer to develop through Korean anti-cancer treatment (If patient cannot receive the anti-cancer
     and radiation therapy because of low level of physical strength.)

  < Dunsan Korean Medicine Hospital of Daejeon University>   http://en.djuds.or.kr                        ☯ What is infertility?   Infertility is the failure of a healthy couple to conceive a pregnancy after trying to do so for at least a year without birth control. Generally, 80-90% women get pregnant within a year if a couple continues sex life without birth control. Waiting indefinitely for pregnancy is wildcat scheme and a couple must find the cause of infertility and get a proper treatment.         ☯ What causes infertility?   - In men   Around 40% of the time, the root of the infertility is due to men. Male infertility is caused by several factors such as low sperm count, poor sperm movement, abnormal sperm shape, abnormal sperm component, problems with tube carrying sperm and sexual function disorder.   - In women   About 50%, the cause of the infertility is due to female partner. The reasons of female infertility are…    ° Ovulatory disorder    ° Damage to the fallopian tubes    ° Problem within cavum pelvis    ° Problem with cervical mucus    ° Problem intrauterine    ° Immunological factor   Yet, there are many cases of being infertile without particular reason. In Korean medicine, we help a couple to overcome infertility by diagnosing and treating based on a unique Korean medicine.         ☯ What is ‘feeling cold’   Feeling cold means sensitivity to the cold or certain part of the body is too cold to be incapacitated. Hands, feet, lower abdomen, waist, knee, sacrum are the main parts of feeling cold. Feeling cold affects more women than men. It has a bad effect on the female hormone.

Patients with feeling cold have other symptoms, for instance, constipation, neuralgia, arthralgia, backache, ringing in the ears, insomnia, dizziness, headache etc.         ☯ Link between feeling cold and infertility   Feeling cold causes the failure of blood circulation in pelvic, ovary and uterus tissue hypo metabolism and poor hormone secretion.

Postpartum obesity clinic
[ Date : 2013-10-08, Hit : 2,075 ]
 
< Dunsan Korean Medicine Hospital of Daejeon University>   http://en.djuds.or.kr                      ☯ Postpartum edema? Postpartum obesity!   After pregnancy and childbirth, many mothers are worried about sudden weight gain. If a mother is gaining weight 6 months after delivery, she can be diagnosed with postpartum obesity. Moreover, if a mother cannot revert to the previous weight set point within 3 to 6 months after giving birth, the body set point would be higher and constitution can be changed into an obese type. So weight control is imperative at the appropriate time and in a proper manner.         ☯ Cause of being overweight after delivery   1. Misunderstanding of “Eat well & Sleep well after delivery”   Needless to say, proper postpartum care is important. Undue postpartum care, however, could cause postpartum obesity. This is because “Eat well & Sleep well” lifestyle that mother got used to continues even after delivery.   2. Slowing down metabolism because of poor energy and blood flow after delivery.   Generally function of internal organs decreases after pregnancy and delivery. Also function that transforms food into energy decreases. Consequently, the extra calories result in fat.   3. Poor water metabolism results in swelling   Once woman gets pregnant, total body water increases and this causes swelling. For eliminating body fluids after delivery, above all things, improving energy and blood circulation is the top priority. After childbirth, however, body energy consumption increases and physical activity decreases so metabolism can slow down.         ☯ When treatment of postpartum obesity is needed   Increased body weight caused by pregnancy and delivery should be lost within 3 to 6 months after childbirth. It’s safe to start losing weight after 6 to 8 weeks of delivery. If mother makes a rapid recovery, she could start going on a diet in 4th week after delivery.         ☯ Breast feeding & postpartum weight loss   Breast feeding is a good way to lose weight. Breast feeding burns 500 to 1000 kcal a day breaking down thigh and hip fat. Moreover, it has effect on building strong abdominal muscle power by helping uterine contractions.         ☯ Why Korean medicine is good for postpartum obesity      1. Improve energy and blood circulation    2. Remove extravasated blood    3. Rapid recovery of uterus, vagina, urinary system    4. Prevention of postpartum disorders    5. Reduce swelling after pregnancy    6. Get rid of extra fat by stimulating metabolism    7. Help reduce postpartum depression & Offer treatment according to mother’s condition         ☯Treatments      1. Herbal medicine          : Herbal medicine according to mother’s condition      2. Acupuncture & moxibustion              : Obese acupuncture (acupuncture that breaks down fats) for gynoid lipodystrophy         & moxibustion that boosts metabolism by thermotherapy      3. Sitz bath therapy          : Promote recovery of uterus and reproductive organs & Improve energy and blood circulation in the abdomen      4. Cupping therapy         : Get rid of cellulite by improving energy and blood flow      5. Aroma therapy         : Mental wellbeing after giving birth & Depression treatment      6. Obesity management program         : Total care with “Wellness Academia- obesity management center”      7.

However, if feces stay in intestine for a long time, they stick in intestine. As a result, intestine becomes hard, intestinal function decreases and causes problems. Feces contained long in the intestines are caused by the reasons as follows;      ° Overeating, binge    ° Dietary habits that eats more meat than vegetables or fruits    ° Eat in a hurry without chewing    ° Get excessive stress    ° Lack of exercise         ☯ Regular motions   Bowel movements are mightily important to enjoy the life. It is no exaggeration to say that all intestine diseases come from the foods. Overeating and irregular meals, excessive stress and lack of exercise cause intestine malfunction and various large intestine disorders such as constipation, diarrhea, and irritable bowel syndrome and so on. If chronic diarrhea or constipation continues, it can cause malignant diseases of the intestine.         ☯ Intestinal bacterial flora   Improvement of intestinal condition is the first step for regular motions. There are countless germs in intestine. Lactobacillus like bifidobacteria gets majority and acid that is produced by lactobacillus stops spoilage bacteria from reproducing. Dietary fiber provides place and nutrition for propagation of lactobacillus. On the contrary, meat diet or instant foods increase obligate aerobes that speed up the rotting process.         ☯ When large intestine detox is needed?   - Constipation –      ° Stress constipation (students, office workers)    ° Habitual constipation (young women)    ° Chronic constipation (middle-aged class)   - Diarrhea –      ° Diarrhea after drinking alcohol    ° Diarrhea after eating greasy food like meat    ° Have watery stool all the time   - Irritable bowel syndrome –      ° Chronic and intermittent symptoms    ° Continuous stomachache    ° Abnormal bowel movements accompanied by constipation and diarrhea    ° Urgent bowel movement    ° Inadequate defecation    ° Abdominal distension    ° Frequent gas         ☯ Jangkwaehwan (medicine) for large intestine detox   For large intestine detox, patients need to activate Intestinal bacterial flora and bowel movements.  Large intestine detox clinic at Dunsan Korean medicine hospital prescribes Jangkwaehwan medicine that helps to improve intestinal function.
