Cancer: The Unnecessary Cost: Many patients claim personal bankruptcy

Cancer: The Unnecessary Cost

Many patients claim personal bankruptcy

On June 29, 2015 published an article titled The Unnecessary Cost Of Cancer. The article written by Eldon Dahl, the founder and CEO of Life Choice Ltd focused on the high cost of drugs in treating cancer patients. For many cancer patients the costs of these drugs have led to personal bankruptcy.

In the article Dahl cites many factors that contribute to these high costs.

1) Pharmaceutical companies can charge whatever they want for their products. There are no regulations or laws governing the markups.

2) Commissions from cancer drugs is the single biggest source of income for private practice oncologists. They buy them wholesale from the pharmaceutical companies and sell them retail to the patients (the mark up for medicare patients is 6 percent)..

3) Pharmaceutical companies are a powerful lobby group in Washington. There donations exceed that of defense contractors and oil companies.

The Power of Melatonin

Numerous studies have established melatonin as one of the most effective anti-cancer treatments in existence. It inhibits cancer cell growth and proliferation; it destroys cancer cells, stops angiogenesis (new tumor blood vessel growth), and prevents harmful forms of estrogen from stimulating cancer cell growth. Despite its success in clinical trials and in doctors' experiences with their patients, it has not been widely prescribed in conventional medicine, though its effects have proven to be superior to those of many chemotherapeutic drugs.

In one clinical trial, patients with glioblastoma, a type of brain cancer, were given either radiation and melatonin, or radiation alone. Twenty-three percent of the patients who took the melatonin were alive after a year, while none who had received only radiation were still alive. Similarly, in another study by oncologists in Italy, patients with non-small cell lung cancers who had failed chemotherapy were given melatonin. They were compared with other patients with non-small cell lung cancers who weren't given melatonin. A year later, 26 percent of the patients who had taken melatonin were still alive; whereas, none in the non-melatonin group remained alive.

Studies have also revealed melatonin to be more effective for treating pancreatic and lung cancers than a drug commonly used to treat these types of cancers. What's more, this drug may cost more than $4,000 per month, while twenty milligrams of melatonin cost approximately $11 per month.


Many clinical studies support the use of melatonin for conditions ranging from concussions to cancer therapy, the version used is DMF (drug manufactured file), USP (United State Pharmacopeia) melatonin the same used by Life Choice®. Unlike commercial brands that use synthetic or either animal-derived; which is less effective. Life Choice® Melatonin starting position origin is L-tryptophan, a known serotonin releaser ( See below: Life Choice Melatonin)

Melatonin functions to destroy cancer in multiple ways. First, because it is toxic to cancer cells, it induces apoptosis, or cancer cell auto-destruction, as well as directly kills cancer cells. It also slows tumor growth through a variety of mechanisms, such as by inhibiting epidermal growth factor receptors on cancer cells. Epidermal growth factors play an important role in cancer cell growth and proliferation, so blocking their receptors on cancer cells prevents them from carrying out these roles.

Melatonin also stimulates the immune system and increases the cancer-killing activity of macrophages, monocytes, natural killer cells, T-helper cells and eosinophils, all of which are involved in cancer cell destruction.

Additionally, melatonin inhibits angiogenesis (new tumor blood vessel creation) from existing blood vessels. Tumors get their nutrition through blood vessels, and as they grow, they require an increasingly greater supply of blood vessels to feed themselves. Preventing new blood vessel growth limits their food intake and causes them to shrink or stop growing.

Melatonin has properties which enable it to block the effects of estrogen upon cancer cells; this is important because certain forms of estrogen stimulate the growth of hormonally-influenced cancers, such as breast, endometrial, ovarian and uterine cancers.

Finally, as an antioxidant, melatonin reduces inflammation, a condition that enables cancer's survival, and it scavenges free radicals so that they don't damage normal cells and make them vulnerable to further genetic mutations.

Despite these favorable statistics, melatonin is seldom recommended to patients in conventional medicine because the laws which govern the practice of medicine are drastically influenced by pharmaceutical interests, which prevent doctors from recommending it to their patients in lieu of expensive, damaging chemotherapy drugs. It is, however, an effective natural treatment that not only helps to prevent cancer, but which also plays an integral role in healing the body from it.

Life Choice's Melatonin

Melatonin is a substance found in almost all cells from the simplest life forms to the human body. Melatonin is produced and secreted by the pineal gland and as we age secretion decreases more

Health Fusion 2015 

Doctor’s Choice participated in Health Fusion 2015 conference. This year marks the first international delegation of naturopathic doctors and the 60 year anniversary of the CAND (Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors).  Life Choice Ltd. and Doctor’s Choice® strongly believe in supporting naturopathic medicine by being platinum sponsors of CAND and supporting naturopathic schools, such as The Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine, and the CCNM, (Canadian College Naturopathic Medicine). We have student reps in both schools, a Life Choice® clinic room in CCNM, and the full support of the colleges, dispensaries, and satellite clinics.

We were thrilled to see long time ND customers stopping by our booth; many commented on the formulations as pressing the envelope and being cutting edge. The items that drew the most attention were the medicinal grade DMSO gel mixed with Sweet Relief Cream (12% MSM with capsicum and eucalyptus), and the Oscar buzz association with our anti-aging products: DMAE cream, HGH+ homeopathic, and DMF Melatonin (1 mg per day for anti-aging).

Two topics that drew surprise were the differences of our fermented amino acids and our DMF melatonin. Most assumed all versions were the same. Many clinical studies support the use of melatonin for conditions ranging from concussions to cancer therapy. Synthetic or animal-derived melatonin is much less effective than the patented DMF (drug manufactured file), USP (United State Pharmacopeia) melatonin used by Life Choice® and Doctor’s Choice®. The starting position origin is L-tryptophan, a known serotonin releaser.

Fermented amino acids were raised several times. Most assumed all amino acids were produced the same, when in fact they are not. How would they know if the products they were purchasing are fermented? Our response was simple: if a supplier is not talking about using fermented amino acids when they cost as much as 300% more than chemically extracted amino acids, then perhaps they aren’t. Wouldn’t that be one of the main selling features?

At Life Choice® and Doctor’s Choice®, the professional, therapeutic medicine that sets our lines apart has been our mission all along. Our products have strong health claims because we can back those claims. We have done the research to produce a professional product; we have carefully formulated our products to have genuine therapeutic value; and, we have designed our products to be real medicine in every sense of the word.
