Immune Therapies International (ITI)
Effective February, 2001, Immune Therapies
International (ITI) will be operating two clinics that will offer
treatments for people with cancer. One is in Dunwoody, Georgia (Atlanta
area) and the other is in Tucson, Arizona. For information on their
facilities, go to http://www.immunerecovery.com/facilities.htm
or call them at 866-471-4743.
Their approach uses state-of the art
medicine and diagnostic testing which will mobilize the body, mind,
spirit, and emotions toward ongoing health. Each participant's
individualized treatment plan is developed by Dr.
Jesse A. Stoff M.D. (H), Director of Integrative Medicine and his team
of health professionals. All of the clinicians are trained and supervised
Therapies that target the cancer tissue
itself, such as radiation surgery and chemotherapy, may be
life-prolonging, but do nothing to address the underlying abnormalities
that allowed the disease to manifest. Therefore, ITI's programs are
directed at working with organs and systems of the body to improve their
functioning. This includes helping the body rid itself of the toxins
that may have triggered and/or accelerated the cancer cells' growth.
The therapies ITI offer are fully individualized and as comprehensive as
is necessary to address the multiple underlying dysfunctions.
They have helped patients with cancer, CFS,
Rheumatoid Arthritis, Fibromyalgia
(CFIDS), chronic Lyme's disease, Hepatitis C and autoimmune disease, such
as Lupus (SLE) and Multiple Sclerosis (MS ), environmental illnesses, and
other chronic illnesses. The core medical model of ITI is the
conviction that cancer and other chronic debilitating diseases are not
"local" diseases affecting a particular part of the body, but
"systemic " diseases involving the whole body.
Treatment programs at their clinics are individualized and based on
sophisticated Immune Assessments - probing deeply into the components of
the Immune System...T-Cell Subsets, B-Cell Subsets, cytokines, interferons,
tumor necrosis factors, antibody fractions, natural killer cell function,
TH1/TH2 and other indices of immune system integrity. Then they develop
individualized patient programs to "fill in the holes" in
the immune milieu. Immunotherapy is combined with other modalities
resulting in programs that include traditional allopathic prescriptions
and treatment, acupuncture, applied clinical immunology, customized
nutritional IV's, Homeopathy, Metabolic analysis, lymphatic massage,
Psychoneuroimmunology (mind/body), dietary modification, meditation,
pyschotherapy, nutritional, chelation, and other infusion therapies,
visualization exercises, group therapies, and culturally appropriate
spiritual therapy. They will also employ consultations with
local specialists (such as oncologists) when warranted. In short,
ITI's medical model is integrative medicine at its best.
They are an out-patient
facility, but they have special rates set up at local hotels. They
encourage participants to bring their spouse, partner, family member, or
friend to their treatment programs.
The information on this page is provided by
The Cancer Cure Foundation based on information we have received from a
variety of sources, including the clinic itself, feedback from people who
have gone to the clinic, and in some cases from clinic tours. The listing
of a doctor or clinic here does not signify an endorsement by the Cancer
Cure Foundation, unless we have indicated it. We encourage you to check
out each clinic by visiting the clinic if possible, talking to people who
have gone to the clinic (ask the clinic for contact information of people
who have gone to the clinic), and by checking with other
organizations as to what they know about the clinic. There are also
some forums you can join to
get feedback from others. We would also be happy to tell you what we know
about any of these clinics.
If you do go to any of these clinics for treatment, be sure to mention
you heard about them through The Cancer Cure Foundation, and be sure to
let us know about your experience, positive or negative. Any feedback you
can offer may help others who are trying to decide which clinic to go to
or which therapy to use.
