Furthermore, Dr. Von Schaefer provides a variety of systemic treatments which assist in targeting the underlying factors which led to the development of the brain cancer initially.

With over 10 years of treating breast cancer, from Stage I to Stage IV, Dr. Von Schaefer has accumulated a wide knowledge of treatment therapies and techniques which provide optimal results. Furthermore, Dr. Von Schaefer is particularly familiar with treating triple-negative breast cancer, which the traditional three pronged approach (chemotherapy, surgery, radiation) has not had great success against. Dr. Von Schaefer uses her experiences from treating over 150 breast cancer patients to analyze each patient’s individual breast cancer condition and develop an effective treatment plan moving forward.

Although often associated with HPV (human papillomavirus), cervical and vaginal cancer develops from a number of different environmental and genetic factors. With her extensive experience treating all stages of cervical and vaginal cancer, Dr. Von Schaefer provides personalized care tailored to each patient’s individual needs. From systemic IV treatments to vaginal suppositories, Dr. Von Schaefer creates a comprehensive treatment plan which hinders cervical and vaginal cancer progression while targeting the underlying factors contributing to its development.

Most commonly, colorectal cancer begins in the innermost layer of the colon and rectum (the mucosa), and grows outward into the wall of the large intestine. As a result, colorectal cancer carries a significant risk of spreading into the bloodstream or surrounding lymph nodes. By combining oral treatments, sequential systemic IV therapies, and single day administrations such as the SOT (Supportive Oligonucleotide Therapy) for Circulating Tumor Cells, Dr. Von Schaefer helps prevent metastatic development and tumor growth. As many of her patients attest, these therapies were crucial in placing their colorectal cancer in remission.

Gastric cancer, characterized by malignant cells forming in the lining of the stomach, develops as a result of both genetic infections and environmental factors. The most significant risk factor is H. pylori bacterial infection left untreated. In addition, the presence of chronic Epstein-Barr Virus (EBV) can create significant dysfunction of the immune system. As one of the foremost experts in treating EBV infection using Supportive Oligonucleotide Therapy (SOT), Dr. Von Schaefer targets EBV as well as other surreptitious viral infections to ensure the microenvironment leading to gastric cancer is treated. In addition to eliminating viral infections, she also analyzes each patient’s cancer cell characteristics to determine which systemic IV treatments and supplements will be most efficacious in their care. By combining both genetic information with microenvironment therapy, Dr. Von Schaefer is able to provide comprehensive gastric cancer treatment with excellent patient outcomes.

Accounting for nearly 4% of all cancers in the United States, Head and Neck Cancer includes a wide variety of different cancer types such as adenoid cystic carcinoma, laryngeal cancer, and metastatic squamous neck cancer. In order to effectively treat such a wide variety of cancers, Dr. Von Schaefer carefully analyzes each patient’s current pathology and condition, as well as the underlying causes of that particular cancer development, to create a personalized treatment plan most suited to shrinking and eliminating the cancer presence.

Characterizing a large range of blood cell cancer, leukemia develops most often in people above the age of 55. However, it is also the most common cancer in children under 15, due often to genetic disorders and environmental factors. Utilizing a wide variety of testing to determine the particular cellular mutations and drug sensitivities of the cancer, Dr. Von Schaefer is able to determine at the microscopic level the correct course of action moving forward. In order to treat the cellular environment and improve healthy immune system functioning, Dr. Von Schaefer employs tools such as Supportive Oligonucleotide Therapies (SOT) to eliminate surreptitious viruses. Through a combination of systemic IV treatments and therapies such as SOTs, many patients have seen great success in mitigating their leukemia with Dr. Von Schaefer.

Dr. Von Schaefer approaches lung cancer treatment using a combination of traditional and integrative oncology techniques. In particular, Dr. Von Schaefer works closely with a world-renowned radiation oncologist who uses brachytherapy (radioactive seed implantation) to specifically target lung cancer in difficult to reach locations without requiring potentially damaging external radiation or surgical intervention. In addition, Dr. Von Schaefer has a variety of IV, nebulized, and oral techniques which in her many years of experience have led to greatly beneficial patient outcomes.

In the traditional modality, lymphoma is treated with an aggressive combination of Cyclophosphamide, Doxorubicin, Vincristine, and Prednisone (known as the CHOP protocol). However, this administration often results in severe detrimental side effects for the patient due to its high levels of toxicity. As a result, Dr. Von Schaefer has developed her own protocol of low-dose CHOP administration to mitigate these side effects while still eliminating deleterious cancer cells. In addition, Dr. Von Schaefer targets the underlying roots of lymphoma, such as untreated viral infections, and has a number of oral treatments which assist in putting lymphoma in remission and maintaining the cancer there. For instance, Epstein-Barr Virus (EBV) has been proven to be a major factor in causing solid tumor cancers, including lymphomas. By utilizing Supportive Oligonucleotide Therapies (SOTs) and various light therapy treatments such as Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation and endolaser, Dr. Von Schaefer is able to clear EBV and other surreptitious viruses to allow proper immune system functioning and cancer reduction.

One of the most serious forms of skin cancer, melanoma develops in the pigment controlling cells of the skin (melanocytes). With extensive experience treating melanoma, Dr. Von Schaefer is one of the leading experts in utilizing integrative methods, particularly light based therapies, to treat the condition. Furthermore, the primary concern with melanoma is not only its tendency to spread rapidly into surrounding tissues and throughout the body, but also melanoma cell’s capability to transform from squamous cells to stem cells. Utilizing a combination of IV and light treatments, home supplementation, and Supportive Oligonucleotide Therapies (SOT), Dr. Von Schaefer treats melanoma on a microscopic level to stop its development and prevent metastases. Often characterization of each individual tumor cell’s mutations also provides direction for further precision treatments.

Often caught in the later stages of its development due to its lack of early symptoms, Ovarian Cancer presents a particularly challenging problem. However, through years of experience treating cancer patients of all stages, Dr. Von Schaefer has developed a number of highly effective IV, nebulizer, and oral treatments against Ovarian Cancer, which she utilizes to create a personal treatment plan tailored for each patient. Furthermore, Dr. Von Schaefer targets the underlying causes of Ovarian Cancer development, such as untreated viral infections, to ensure that your cancer is not only put into remission but also remains there.

Traditionally, most pancreatic cancers are split into two types: pancreatic adenocarcinoma, which begins in the cells that line the ducts of the pancreas, and pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors, which develops in the hormone producing cells or neuroendocrine cells of the pancreas. With both types of pancreatic cancer, Dr. Von Schaefer’s extensive experience allows her to efficiently assess the current situation and determine the best course of action moving forward. Through a combination of systemic IV treatments, integrative therapies, and home supplementation, patients are provided comprehensive care which helps place the cancer in remission and keep it there.

As the second most common male cancer in the United States, as well as one of the leading causes of cancer death in men of all races, prostate cancer presents a crucial cancer to target and treat. Dr. Von Schaefer utilizes a variety of oral and systemic IV treatments to target prostate cancer and prepare the patient to be an optimal surgical candidate for prostatectomy. In particular, Dr. Von Schaefer is experienced in utilizing the WnT pill, which targets the WnT signaling pathway, to coalesce the prostate tumor and prepare the patient for a safe, fast, and effective prostate removal.

A rare cancer contributing to 1% of all adult cancers and 15% of childhood cancers, sarcomas arise from bone/connective tissue and may cause severe pain and loss of function depending on the location. Unfortunately, conventional medicine’s treatment for sarcomas relies solely on the three pronged of surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy. In order to combat the flaws of this limited method, Dr. Von Schaefer analyzes each patient holistically to determine the optimal treatment both for the sarcoma itself, as well as the factors contributing to its development.
