At Angeles Health we are proud of our cancer treatment program. Functional Oncology is the name of the protocol we use, but there is not just one protocol we follow as every patient is unique. Functional Oncology uses functional medicine, a practice and philosophy that was developed and originated by Dr. Helmut W. Schimmel, as well as some conventional therapies.

Functional medicine is a form of Western alternative medicine that is not related to the Western biomedical philosophies. As a treatment it is designed to look at symptoms in the body, such as dysfunctions and imbalances, to seek out and treat the root causes of disease. The body is considered to be one integrated system rather than a collection of independent organs that are divided into different medical specialties.  A philosophy that clearly makes sense! Why should each of your symptoms be treated separately and your overall health be completely ignored?

In functional medicine close attention is paid to nutrition and environmental toxins as they may cause illness, worsen symptoms, and change the activity of biochemical mechanisms.

At Angeles Health we use this powerful form of medicine extensively. However, we also use conventional cancer treatment modalities when a patient’s specific needs require it. Treatments such as chemotherapy are highly effective in some cancer treatments and for some patients, but this is of course something the patient and their doctor must discuss and decide on together.
