Metabolic Approach To Cancer
May 15, 2020
For those taking a metabolic approach to fighting their cancer, here are the repurposed drugs and naturally-occurring compounds that are often considered: Alpha-lipoic acid Artemisinin Aspirin Atorvastatin Berberine Bergamot Celecoxib Chromium Cimetidine Curcumin DHEA Dichloroacetate Dipyridamole Doxycycline EGCG Fenbendazole Genistein Hydroxychloroquine Loratadine Luteolin Mebendazole Melatonin Metformin Mistletoe Naltrexone Niclosamide Omega 3 Omega 7 Propranolol Quercetin Resveratrol Selenium Silymarin Sulforaphane Ursolic acid Vitamin A Vitamin C Vitamin D Here are promising repurposed drugs and naturally-occurring compounds that are rarely considered, but should be: Cholera vaccine Citric acid Clove extract Dasatinib Diclofenac Disulfiram Fisetin Flubendazole Follistatin Gallium maltolate Glycyl-L-histidyl-L-lysine Hydrogen gas Itraconazole Ivermectin Ketorolac Mannose Methimazole Nitazoxanide Oleanolic acid Perillyl alcohol Poly-L-lysine Pyrvinium pamoate Sodium bicarbonate Specialized pre-resolving mediators Sulindac Tadalafil Tocotrienols Withaferin A Xanthohumol To learn more about these other repurposed drugs and naturally-occurring compounds, visit www.NewHopeForCancer.com.

Important Covis - 19 Updates
March 28, 2020
Cases of COVID-19 (coronavirus disease of 2019) continue to rise in the United States. Please do not minimize the impact this virus can have, even in young people (see https://www.propublica.org/article/a-medical-worker-describes--terrifying-lung-failure-from-covid19-even-in-his-young-patients). Based on recent data (see https://www.newsweek.com/hydroxychloroquine-coronavirus-conventional-care-study-1494176), I am no longer prescribing hydroxychloroquine to my patients. I am now prescribing nitazoxanide as an alternative (see https://www.nature.com/articles/s41422-020-0282-0.pdf). Like me, I am sure you have gotten unsolicited emails talking about using supplements to

Urgent Information on Corona Virus
March 13, 2020
Coronavirus COVD-19 is most dangerous to those who are immunocompromised, the elderly, and those who have cardiovascular disease, diabetes, hepatitis B, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, chronic kidney disease, and CANCER. Should I, my staff, my family, or any of my cancer patients contract COVD-19, here is what I will be using to combat it: 1. Chloroquine & nitazoxanide: https://www.nature.com/articles/s41422-020-0282-0.pdf 2. IVC: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5295174/pdf/WJCCM-6-85.pdf 3. Molecular hydrogen: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4931094/pdf/OMCL2016-5806057.pdf Here is why molecular hydrogen will be important: https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/world-news/coronavirus-x-rays-show-terrifying-21672219 Dr. Daniel Thomas, DO, MS http://www.newhopeforcancer.com

8 Signs And Symptoms In People Who Are Least To Show Remission
February 29, 2020
I have been treating challenging stage-4 cancer patients using an immunometabolic approach for 32 years. In that period of time, I have seen these eight signs and symptoms often show up in people who are less able to achieve remission: 1. Moderate-to-severe cachexia (weight loss, muscle loss, lack of appetite, fatigue, and decreased strength) 2. Moderate-to-severe ascites (fluid in the abdomen) or pleural effusion (fluid between the lungs and chest wall) 3. Uncontrollable pain and/or nausea 4. Markedly elevated iron in the blood (ferritin >300) 5. Markedly elevated inflammatory markers (hs-CRP >3, homocysteine >16, fibrinogen >500) 6. Severe anemia (hemoglobin <8) 7. Hypoalbuminemia (blood albumin level below the reference range) 8. Low heart-rate variability Having any of the above signs and symptoms does not preclude me from treating a patient, but it does make my job more difficult. Bottom line, if you ...

Confession
February 23, 2020
I post messages to various cancer groups/forums like this from time to time, not to seek patients (my practice is already full), but rather, to educate the public and other doctors. I have been treating cancer immunometabolically for 32 years. During this time, I have gained a lot of valuable insight and experience.\r\nDr. Daniel Thomas, DO, MS\r\nnewhopeforcancer.com

Aging And Cancer
February 23, 2020
Increasing age is the most significant risk factor for the development of cancer, but why? Chronological aging may enable the growth of tumors through the onset of cell-cycle arrest (senescence) of aging fibroblasts, which makes them prone to autophagy. Senescence-induced autophagy creates a tissue microenvironment conducive to the growth of cancer via the production of high-energy mitochondrial fuels from fibroblasts (such as lactate) that can feed nascent (emerging) cancer cells. Furthermore, senescent fibroblasts can promote tumor initiation, growth, and spread through the production of inflammation-signaling molecules. To help prevent the onset or recurrence of cancer, we are pioneering the use of repurposed medicines, peptides, and natural compounds to eradicate aged, autophagy-prone, senescent fibroblasts. To learn more about the role that fibroblasts play in cancer, visit https://www.thomashealthblog.com/?p=9688 Dr.

The Problem Of Anemia
February 02, 2020
Anemia (low hemoglobin) is a common problem in cancer patients. It is a result of the disease itself and/or bone-marrow suppression resulting from chemotherapy. Hypoxia is the chief consequence of anemia, a condition where insufficient oxygen makes it to the cells and tissues in the body. This can happen even when blood flow and oxygen saturation measurements are normal. Prolonged hypoxia stimulates the formation of hypoxia-inducible factor 1-alpha (HIF-1α). Accumula

Senscent Cancer Cells
January 26, 2020
Sharing some important knowledge with you all. SENESCENT CANCER CELLS Besides cancer stem cells, the other problematic cells are senescent cancer cells. Not all cancer cells can be forced into apoptosis (programmed cell death) when treated with conventional and/or alternative therapy. Instead of dying, some cancer cells will simply stop dividing and multiplying and enter a senescent or dormant-like state. This is called senescence-associated growth arrest (SAGA), and while it sounds good, it is accompanied by something not so good called senescence-associated secretory phenotype (SASP) in which there is overactive secretion of pro-inflammatory, cancer-promoting compounds by the senescent cancer cells. It is good that senescent cancer cells don

Cancer Stem Cells
January 19, 2020
In the human body, there are healthy stem cells that help repair and regenerate damaged tissues. Similarly, in tumors, there are cancer stem cells (CSCs) that help repair and regenerate tumors. This subset of cancer cells is also known as tumor-survival cells (TSCs) or tumor-initiating cells (TICs). Many experts believe that successful eradication of CSCs could change the face of cancer treatment. Not only are CSCs the main driver of distant metastasis, treatment failure, and disease recurrence, CSCs may also be the root cause of the original tumor itself. Because of the powerful survival mechanisms of CSCs, chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery are unable to kill them. In fact, conventional therapy can do the exact opposite and stimulate the proliferation and virulence of CSCs. CSCs can migrate ...

REPAIRING LEFTOVER DAMAGE
January 08, 2020
Studies have shown that conventional cancer treatment can accelerate the aging process, leading to fatigue, decline in brain function, heart disease, and a return of cancer. Long after treatment has been completed, chemotherapy and radiation can leave considerable damage to the heart, lungs, brain, nerves, kidneys, urinary bladder, liver, intestines, bone marrow, immune system, muscles, and reproductive organs. This can permanently affect your quality of life and shorten your life. This is an area that nobody seems to be addressing. Because of the urgent and unmet need, we are pioneering the use of repurposed medicines, peptides, and natural compounds to help repair tissue damage and restore quality of life.

Solutions For Targeting Cancer Cells
August 11, 2019
PROBLEM: Not all cancer cells can be induced to undergo apoptosis (programmed cell death). Even when they do, the mere act of apoptosis can trigger the proliferation of cancer stem cells. Cancer stem cells can lead to distant metastasis, treatment failure, and disease recurrence. SOLUTION: Target cancer stem cells by directly killing them and/or preventing them from entering a dormant and more resistant state. PROBLEM: Instead of apoptosis, some cancer cells can be induced to enter a senescent or dormant state. Fortunately, senescent cancer cells permanently stop dividing, but unfortunately, they don
