“NEW AGE HEALTH CARE” – WITH ‘INFORMED PATIENTS’ REDEFINING ‘THE BALANCE OF POWER’!!

“Patient empowerment is a finely-tuned skill health providers and patients develop together”

Many would agree, that feeling in control is vastly important when dealing with our own health issues, however most people will admit that they have allowed themselves to become passive recipients in a medical model of ‘patient care‘, where our fundamental rights can be diminished, ignored, or at worst overridden.

THE ‘FUNDAMENTALS OF SUSCEPTIBILITY’ – ARE OUR GENES REALLY TO BLAME FOR CANCER DEVELOPMENT??

When it comes to our ‘genes’, we appear to have been ‘indoctrinated‘ to believe that ‘the genes we inherit‘ have everything to do with disease and that we are totally at their mercy when it comes to developing cancer!!??  The fortunate thing is this is not the case!!

CHEMOTHERAPEUTIC CHALLENGES – COULD “FULLY INFORMED CONSENT” BE A THERAPEUTIC “GAME CHANGER”??

Informed consent has been defined as: “Permission granted in full knowledge of the possible consequences, typically that which is given by a patient to a doctor for treatment, with knowledge of the possible risks, benefits and alternatives!!”

As we know, Chemotherapy is one of the three generally prescribed ‘conventional treatment options’ for most people diagnosed with cancer, along with surgery and radiation.  With ‘informed consent‘ in mind, let us look for one moment about some of what we do know about the ‘efficacy of Chemotherapy’, around achieving the desired results of killing cancerous cells:

  • Chemotherapeutic drugs have more of a ‘hand grenade‘ effect by killing both healthy and diseased cells simultaneously;
  • In the context of ‘collateral damage‘, our immune system can be totally killed off by chemo drugs;
  • Cancer stem cells, possess properties of self-renewal and intrinsic survival mechanisms, that contribute to resistance of tumors to many chemotherapeutic drugs;
  • In cancer treatment, tumors often respond well initially, followed by rapid regrowth and then resistance to further chemotherapy;
  • Chemo drugs have many undesirable side effects, with some of these effects presenting well after treatment has finished; which have been known to cause long term and often debilitating health related issues.

Informed consent is related to the legal concept of “failure to warn”

The informed consent process is designed as a mechanism for the individual to protect themselves against harm.  By weighing up the risks versus the benefits and with the alternatives having been outlined, this enables the individual to then make a fully informed decision on what they feel is the best course of treatment for them.

ACQUIRED DRUG RESISTANCE – ‘COMBINATION THERAPY’ PROVING SUCCESSFUL!!

“Drug resistance is the major reason for failure in cancer chemotherapy!!”

Every Onocologist is very aware, cancerous tumors can and do become resistant to the chemotherapeutic drugs which are meant to destroy them, leaving cancer cells very difficult to target with conventional drugs alone.  Research has shown that acquired drug resistance is a common problem, where a tumor may respond initially to therapy but recur later with acquired drug resistance.
