for Adjunctive Cancer Care


The health industry is mega business. Among industrialized nations, the United States is number one in the amount of its wealth it spends on health care. In 2012 alone, the U.S. spent an average of $8,915 per person on health care, reaching a total of $2.8 trillion!  Yet, Americans have a disproportionate share of lifestyle-related health issues, like heart disease, obesity, diabetes and cancer.

In the past, our patients came to us for information about the issues they were facing.  With the growth of the internet, our patients now bring to us two new perspectives.  We do like it that many have done their research beforehand and ask us intelligent questions about the issues they are facing. This allows us to bypass quite a bit of discussion and cut to the heart of the matter quickly.  On the other hand, the amount of misinformation they bring is daunting.  Major parts of many office visits are spent clarifying faulty information and correcting concepts. With the amount of money spent on health care, the internet is rampant with self-serving scams that try to exploit Americans where they are most vulnerable -- their well-being.

Much of the internet information from the dominant medical paradigm is useful. And much of the information is generated by people and institutions who have much to gain by perpetuating myths and preventing true innovation and cures.  This holds true for so-called "alternative" medical information as well.

For example, if a cure for cancer were found, what would happen to the thousands of cancer researchers currently employed in that task?  What would happen to medical institutions and the money spent on diagnostic, surgical, chemical and radiological procedures? What would happen to the pharmaceutical companies who charge tens of thousands of dollars for chemotherapy regimens that just do not work? And when inexpensive, easy cures for cancer are proposed, the instrument of Big Pharma, the FDA, cracks down and in essence outlaws innovation. In our current system, it is not economically feasible to find an inexpensive, easy cure for cancer. 

The topic of this month's newsletter is "Medical Myths."  Dr. Connie muses on the persistence of these myths and then goes on to give some examples. Dr. Marcel writes about three myths he frequently addresses during visits with patients; and Dr. Corrine addresses the irrational emphasis placed on lab test reference ranges.

Jane Hernandez gives excellent suggestions on preparing for surgery and Nicole Noceto offers a perspective on the meeting of energy medicine and modern medicine.  Also in this issue are stories on the myth of mammograms and the mythical reality that our guests experience while staying at our Hawaii vacation rental.

Our Hernandez Center articles this month include a report about the cancer conference we attended a couple of weeks ago and the myth that chemotherapy can cure cancer.

There is a lot to ponder in this current issue.

Be Well.

The Power and Persistence of Medical Myths: Energy Medicine


Change comes slowly to medicine. We are wedded to our world views and limited by our understandings.  Medical beliefs are conditioned by the culture in which they are formulated, and by what is understood as science in that culture at that time in history. Unfortunately for those who cling to the status quo, as we move from age to age, what was taken as scientific fact in one age is proven medical myth in the next. This transition is a bit akin to having the rug pulled out from under the feet upon which you are standing.  Emotions run high. Tempers flare.


Twentieth century medicine was based on Newtonian understandings of the physical world. As science transitioned into the realm of energy, medicine accepted energy based diagnostics and treatments in the form of X rays, MRIs, CT scans, ultrasound and laser therapies. These diagnostics, for the most part, are looking for visible evidence, however microscopic, of physical anomalies that are assumed to represent or cause a problem. Therapies are designed to disappear the anomaly and hopefully correct the problem the anomaly represents.


In the less accepted realms of energy diagnostics, sensors measure subtle energy signatures and patterns that are characteristic of tissues, organs, meridians, energy centers and intracellular communication. Medicines and other substances are evaluated for resonant energy signatures which might correct or cancel out imbalances, and strengthen weak signals or patterns. It is the energetic structure underlying the physical form that is thought to be causative. Physical illness is understood to begin in the energy world.


Working within this paradigm, using energy diagnostics and treatments, clinicians have achieved dramatic results. (For those interested in understanding energy medicine, I recommend  Richard Gerber's Vibrational Medicine, a handbook of subtle energy therapies, and Bruce Lipton's The Biology of Belief).


As might be expected, energy medicine is far from mainstream. Diagnostic devices are deemed to be "black box" instrumentation. Energy medicines are labeled as snake oil or woo woo medicine. And practitioners are branded as quacks.  


This reluctance to think outside of the box is very unfortunate for those for whom conventional medicine has no answer. While it is undoubtedly true that "black boxes" may be the model T's of energy medicine, one day we will have Teslas. Medicine of the future will undoubtedly look back on our reluctance to acknowledge that electromagnetic frequencies affect every cell of our bodies, and may either disrupt or promote our health and well being.


It would be well to remember that it was once heresy to suggest that post child birth infection and death might be avoided by hand washing between birthings. Healers and herbalists were burned to death at the stake. Throughout time, visionaries have been in peril of vilification by those who cling to the status quo.  


As naturopathic doctors, we endeavor to open our minds to the potential and to the limitations of the current scientific understandings upon which both naturopathic and conventional medicine are based, and to broaden our perspectives by maintaining a sense of curiosity and fearlessness in exploring outer realms of healing.

Three Myths Perpetuated by the Dominant Medical Paradign

MYTH: High Cholesterol is Dangerous

Despite numerous excellent studies, many conventional physicians still have a knee jerk reaction when they see an isolated cholesterol value hovering near or over the reference range of 199.  In evaluating lab work, it is a mistake to isolate cholesterol from other lipid values or from liver function.


The liver manufactures cholesterol for use in a number of biochemical reactions.  Cholesterol is critical for hormone production, building cell membranes, interacting with proteins inside cells, regulating cell signaling and other biological processes. Having too little cholesterol may undermine brain health, disrupt hormone levels, raise heart disease risk, and more. What is dangerous is the over prescription of cholesterol lowering statin drugs.  


Studies have shown that in many cases, exercise, eating a healthy diet and not smoking are going to be far more effective at reducing the risk of heart disease than taking a statin.  This article by the middle-of-the-road AARP, presents accurate information.


MYTH: Laboratory Results Within the References Ranges 

Means Everything is OK


We often hear from our patients that their MD has deemed that their lab results are normal.  Our response is, "are you really healthy, or just not sick enough?" In naturopathic medicine, when we analyze lab test results we take two approaches: 1) We do not isolate lab values (see cholesterol discussion above) and, 2) what is most important to us is not so much the lab reference range, but the functional range.  For example, the lab reference range for normal blood glucose is 65 to 99.   I can assure you that anyone with a blood glucose of 65 will have symptoms of hypoglycemia.  The functional range for glucose, the range at which a person is more likely to be stable, is 82 to 99.  Lower than 82 means possible hypoglycemia, higher than 99, possible pre-diabetes.  Read about the effects of low blood sugar on the body here.


MYTH: Getting a Flu Shot Will Protect You


At the beginning of this year, most major news outlets reported that this year's flu vaccine was less than 23 percent effective.  Yet, every mainstream health care agency in the country was stressing the importance of getting the shot.  Forgive me if a bit a cynicism comes across, but this is not safe health policy.  This is rampant manipulation of policy for the personal gain of flu vaccine manufacturers.  For naturopathic physicians, vaccinations are abominations in that they subvert the natural order in which the immune system deals with invading organisms. Vaccinations bypass the white blood cell response and go straight to the antibody response.  


For many years, my father got his flu shot.  He got sick every winter.  When he stopped getting his flu shots we made sure his immune system was strong and vital and he made it through subsequent winters without becoming ill.  Dr. Connie and I have never had flu shots and we work in an environment where we work with sick patients on a daily basis.  Neither of us has ever contracted influenza.  We keep our immune systems in top shape.  Future newsletter issues will address the vaccination issue. This article presents a thoughtful perspective on flu shots.

Are Lab Reference Ranges Indicative of Optimal Health?

Corrine Wang, N.D.

Many doctors will treat conditions only when there are overt deficiencies or lab values that are obviously out of range. But what do the lab ranges tell us? Are they optimal for the patient? 

What most people do not know is the lab reference ranges are about 95% of all values found in patients going to that particular lab and correspond to values that are within two standard deviations from the mean. The ranges are usually too broad and do not necessarily indicate the health status of someone for that particular value. For instance, looking at hormones, since people going to get labs drawn are generally suspected to have a deficiency or an excess by their doctor, the sample of people for the reference range for hormones are generally not at optimal health. This means that the reference range generated from this sample of people will not be looking at optimal health, and many people who are having symptoms of a hormone deficiency may not be treated simply based on their labs if their lab values fall in the "normal" range. 

Also, because about 95% of people will fall inside the reference range, that means that only 5% of people are caught with outright deficiencies or excess - this number is too low, given the population of people that are being tested!

We see this happen quite a bit with thyroid and the TSH value. Many women suffer from "subclinical hypothyroidism," where they are having symptoms of low thyroid like fatigue, feeling cold, slow digestion, dry skin, difficulty losing weight, etc., but TSH levels are still "within normal limits." Many of these women will not be treated and suffer needlessly. 

Ideal ranges for individuals for optimal health, especially when looking at hormones, are often at the mean level of young adults - people generally feel better when their hormone levels are around the average level of young adults instead of within the lab's "normal" levels. 

As naturopaths, we often have tighter ranges when looking at reference ranges for a lab value, because we know that the reference ranges are often too wide. For instance, when looking at TSH, we generally would like to see it around 1-1.5. Normal lab reference ranges for TSH can often go up to 4, but people can already be feeling symptoms when TSH gets up to around 2.5. 

Thus, if you are feeling like your health is not ideal but your labs look "normal," it may be time to get a second opinion. You may have a deficiency or excess that is going undiagnosed and causing symptoms.  At Pacific Naturopathic, we not only take into account your symptoms and lab values but look at the whole picture of your health, often checking other systems of the body that can be affected/related.

Medical Myths



Perhaps the most pervasive myth surrounding medicine in our country in these times is that conventional medicine is trustworthy and effective because methods and medicines sanctioned by the F.D.A. (Food and Drug Administration) and the C.D.C. (Center for Disease Control) are scientifically proven and therefore superior in all ways to remedies not officially sanctioned.  


Never mind that many of these medicines undergo inadequate testing, flawed by vested commercial interests of the pharmaceutical companies that manufacture them and the highly paid consultants that review them. Never mind the insidious (though well intended) ways in which these medicines are prescribed for off label uses, in the process evading legitimate testing relevant to the diseases and populations for which they are being prescribed. Never mind that efficacy is often little better than the efficacy of various placebos. And never mind that these very same pharmaceutical companies consistently put out flawed studies disparaging alternative treatment methods.


Thus we have studies reporting the lack of efficacy of St. John's wort, for example, in treating depression. Never mind the lack of standardization of the herb used in the study, the dosages which did not approach therapeutic levels, and the fact that the herb was tested for efficacy in treating severe depression when in practice it is used for mild to moderate depression. We find the same inconsistencies in "scientific studies" on everything from vitamin E to fish oil, and the public is cautioned about the dangers and urged to see their conventional doctors for "real medicine."


Medical reporters contribute to the myth by parroting such findings without any real evaluation of the factual basis for the conventional conclusions.  And medical myths are born.


This is not to say that complementary or alternative medicine does not also suffer from grandiose statements, inadequate research, flawed conclusions, and medical myths of its own. But it is to say that when we base our decisions on flawed data, pervasive belief systems and hear say, illogical pathways are followed.


Several recent encounters come to mind. A new patient came in to my office with debilitating fatigue, insomnia and musculoskeletal pain which she had suffered from for years. When asked if anything had ever been efficacious for her, she noted that she was tremendously improved with B12 shots.  Stunned by the simplicity of the solution, I asked why it was that she was not getting B12 shots. Her reply was that her doctor refused to order them because the treatment had not been scientifically validated.


The second was with my primary care physician at Palo Alto Medical Foundation. When questioned as to why I had opted out of the current flu shot, I questioned the doctor as to whether she was aware of the CDC finding that it was less than 20% effective. She nodded that she knew that that was true. I then asked her whether she continued to advise the flu shot. She nodded her head affirmatively. Flu shots are the best way to prevent the flu. A medical myth at work!

Let Me Count the Ways --
Taking Control of Your Surgery

Jane 2013

Yes, it is true that are living in a time when there are incredible advances in medicine that are available to us. But, when you think about it, every generation before us has felt that way. And it is also true that the next generation will feel that we experienced medicine as a blunt instrument and they have access to the latest medical miracles. Take surgery, for example, there are so many minimally invasive technologies available so the huge scars of former operations are less visible. But when you are advised about the need for a surgery and everything leading up to it the stress and anxiety begin immediately. How does medicine handle this? Why, a pill, of course. And it's more drugs from there to the finish.


But what if you could mediate your own handling of an operation from diagnosis through the actual surgery to recuperation?


Well, you have that possibility with hypnotherapy.


Scientists have already determined that 95% of everything we know, do, react to is in our subconscious mind. The conscious mind is only 5%. That's a huge difference and it's a no-brainer to engage with the subconscious in hypnosis as an informed and powerful participant in your life.


When you think about it, it's the subconscious which is keeping the body humming along. It is the conductor of all the bodily systems from the heart's pumping and blood flow, the nervous system, digestion, cell division...well, everything. Imagine if you had to use your conscious mind to keep everything working...impossible! The only bodily function we can (sometimes) control is breathing, though the subconscious takes over that too when we stop paying attention to it.


There has been a lot of research into hypnosis used before surgery and the results are overwhelmingly positive. The treatment starts after the diagnosis when the patient is primed to relax and prepare with confidence. Then the pre-surgery where the subconscious is engaged to direct what actually goes on in the patient's mind during the surgery. As previously mentioned, the subconscious is in charge of all the bodily functions so having set the path of success the research has shown that there is less bleeding, less time in the OR, and less anesthesia.


There is also research which points to quicker recuperation and less pain after using hypnosis.


One of my clients was facing a surgery to remove presumed cancer spots which were visible on her lungs. She had the same surgery 6 years previously and it had left her in constant pain. Needless to say, she was frightened about what they would find and in what condition she would be left.


We did a deep hypnotherapy session and went through the whole event in her mind. On the morning of the surgery there was a two hour delay but she was very calm as she waited. And during the procedure it was found that the spots were benign and they were able to correct the previous botched surgery. The whole event happened in less time than predicted and her recuperation was quicker than expected. The best part was that her constant pain was gone and it opened up her life.


So, think about it...if hypnotherapy can make such a difference before surgery why would anyone proceed without it? Perhaps because they didn't realize how much it could help. But if you have read this far, now you know.

Modern Science Meets 
Ancient Energy Medicine

Nicole Noceto

Living in the progressively health-conscious Bay Area, and growing my own personal community of fellow students and other like-minded people, it's easy to forget that Chinese Medicine is still considered "alternative" healthcare by the masses, and even disregarded by some as strange, voodoo medicine that doesn't really work.  I have even encountered people who "don't believe in Chinese Medicine," as if it were some sort of sect.  Thanks to the topic of this newsletter, herein will lay my reaction to all those naysayers.


I have always considered myself a logical, analytical person - I love math, problem solving, and understanding how things work.  I also spent my undergraduate studies as a science major.  In fact, it's this love for science that led me to exploring more about energy, and specifically the relationships between energy, medicine, and healing.  As an energy therapy, Chinese Medicine encompasses the use of acupuncture, herbs, and bodywork to restore balance to the patient's body. 


Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is based on the observation of nature and natural phenomena.  Humans are viewed as microcosms of the universe, seen as inseparable from nature, and subject to the same cyclical patterns and processes.   The TCM view of human physiology is based on the concept of energy fields, a view comparable to the modern concept of energy fields as understood by the contemporary branch of physics, quantum mechanics.  According to this idea, matter and energy are inseparable, dependent on each other, and defined by each other. 


Ancient Chinese philosophy understood Earth to have veins of energy that course through it, hold it together, and act as a grid from which all life derives its power.  Similarly, all living beings have a grid, the meridian system, through which life energy (Qi) flows.  When the flow of this energy becomes impeded, physical, mental, and emotional imbalances arise, potentially leading to disease.  To then treat (or prevent) disease, these meridians, or energy pathways, are stimulated by acupuncture needles, herbal remedies, and/or bodywork to restore energetic balance and promote optimal well-being.


I can't help but feel that I will emerge from school at a pivotal time in medical history, as modern technologies are finally starting to "prove" the efficacy of this 2,500 year-old system.  Controlled studies, subcutaneous imaging, MRI's, and more, are actually showing how these unique therapies can work on an energetic level.  We can physically see the connective tissues respond to acupuncture needles; we can map brain activity, blood flow, the regeneration of nerves, and gather scientific data surrounding the use of acupuncture & herbs to improve conditions such as pain, insomnia, depression, gastrointestinal issues, and so much more!  


 Chinese Medicine is not something to believe in, but rather a method of therapy to choose, or not, depending on availability and open-mindedness.


Note: Nicole is presently on extended leave from Pacific Naturopathic while she attends acupuncture school.

Breast Thermography at
Pacific Naturopathic
- assessing the myth of mammography -



Persistent in medical mythology has been the myth that yearly mammograms are accurate and necessary preventive medicine.  For many years, women have been encouraged to indulge in this practice, a practice which exposes them to radiation and tissue damage year after year. Preventive medicine, mammograms are not. By the time an anatomical change shows on the mammogram, the damage is already done, and is simply being recognized. A biopsy is necessary then, to determine the nature of the finding.


In the past several years, mammography reports come with a disclaimer, acknowledging that mammography really isn't very good at all at assessing the breasts of women who have dense breasts. (That would include most younger women, women with higher estrogen levels, and many obese women.) In the more recent past, statistics are showing that those annual mammograms come with many false positives, resulting in unnecessary biopsies and even unnecessary disfiguring surgeries and other harmful therapies. 


Many women have therefore made the decision to monitor their breasts with breast thermography, a non invasive, non harmful technology, the results of which are not obscured by the density of the breast in question. Breast thermography can identify physiologic change before the change is set in stone, thus enabling preventive measures to be taken. Breast thermography can not diagnose breast cancer (nor can mammography), but it can indicate that a physiologic process is occurring in one breast, and not in the other.  


When breast thermography indicates an issue which is not resolved by appropriate therapeutic intervention, or when lumps or bumps are evident on palpation, mammograms make sense. They make little sense as an annual screening technique.

What We Offer 
at the Hernandez Center 
for Adjunctive Cancer Care

Marcel Hernandez, ND

Our cancer patients often ask us to give them an estimate of the effectiveness of therapy at the Hernandez Center for Adjunctive Cancer Care. We respond that our entire focus is on helping our patients stay healthy, upbeat and positive. 

The truth is that the botanical and nutritional therapies we offer (including intravenous vitamin C), although 'adjunctive' in nature, have powerful documented actions in decreasing inflammation, reducing tumor load and attacking cancer stem cells.  

Our mind/body approaches are focused on transformation of experience.  And our bodywork approaches help reduce muscular pain, resolve lymph drainage problems and relieve stress.  

The hope we offer is not that of a miraculous cure, although we are definitely open to miracles, but the hope of a life lived to the fullest in dignity and understanding, for however long that may be.


Cancer Conference Discoveries

Connie Hernandez, ND


Drs. Marcel, Corrine and I recently attended a 3 day cancer conference in Reno. Throughout the course of the conference, we learned of new research supporting therapies we currently use, and we were introduced to therapies we have not yet been using at Pacific Naturopathic and the Hernandez Center.


Of great interest to us was the potential use of a nontoxic formula containing oxaloacetate and ascorbic acid in the clinical dietary management of the metabolic imbalances associated with glial tumors. As an adjunctive therapy combined with chemotherapy, this type of formula improved survival in animals implanted with human glioblastoma cells.


Mechanisms of action include positive effects on blood sugar control and the reduction of excess glutamate through the formation of a brain protective compound known as alpha-ketoglutarate. These and other actions make oxaloacetate beneficial in the treatment of closed brain injuries suffered in concussions, and also in the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimers and Parkinsons.


We are awaiting research studies in this exciting area. Read HERE about some of the studies surrounding this compound, and about the difficulties encountered in bringing information on promising compounds to market in the United States.  

On the experiential side, Drs Marcel and I tried taking small sublingual doses of OA at the conference. Both of us felt an almost immediate increase in mental clarity. We will be carrying this product in our clinic.




Please phone us for an appointment for evaluation. 



Myth: Chemotherapy 
Can Cure Cancer

Marcel Hernandez, ND


If chemotherapy works, why is the cancer rate at almost epidemic proportions and the remission rate mostly unchanged after more than 50 years of data? 

What we see in our oncology practice is that patients who undergo chemotherapy fare much worse in terms of survival and quality of life than those who augment their therapy with the safe, effective therapies we offer at the Hernandez Center for Adjunctive Cancer Care.  The reason is that chemotherapy bases its therapeutic approach on reducing tumor load.  What it doesn't address is the cancer stem cells - the "baby" cancer cells that give rise to tumor cells.  

Once the tumor starts to shrink, the cancer stem cells accelerate their production of new tumor cells - a race that is often lost. We have seen time after time the health and quality of life of cancer patients sink dramatically after undergoing unsupported chemotherapy.  In most cases, it is not the cancer, but the chemo that ultimately kills patients.  This excellent, well-referenced article is a must read for anyone considering chemotherapy.

Other I.V. Therapies Offered at Pacific Naturopathic and the Hernandez Center

Corrine Wang, N.D.


Many people have already heard about intravenous vitamin C as a complementary cancer therapy to help stimulate the immune system as well as being directly cytotoxic to cancer cells. We are often using this therapy at the Hernandez Center for our cancer patients. What people may not know is that we also have many other IV therapies that are also very helpful in supporting our cancer patients depending on their symptoms and what they need. 


We often give a nutrient IV in between IV vitamin C sessions, which helps to provide more energy and rebuild our patients that may be feeling fatigued or have low blood counts. 


We also have other anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer therapies like IV curcumin (turmeric) or IV silibinin (from milk thistle). 


Another IV treatment that can help cancer patients from losing more weight or to help them gain weight is an infusion that includes a variety of amino acids. 


These are just a few of the protocols we have for our cancer patients. For more information or to set up an appointment, please contact us at the Hernandez Center at (650) 917-1121.
