Explanation of the Functional Oncology Tree

Explanation of the Leaves in the Tree

All tumor cells have characteristics, features, attributes, and behaviors that are part of the cancer cell’s survival plan and are defined in each of these hallmarks. Each cancer has its specific hallmark attributes that contribute to its ability to thrive.

Explanation of the Trunk

We impact the proliferation of cancer and chronic disease through healing at the root and creating healthy cells that:

  • Have stability of DNA, RNA, proteins and histones
  • Have healthy molecular signaling for growth
  • Have healthy metabolism managing nutrients for normal cellular activity
  • Are sensitive to stopping growth through molecular signals from and on the cell
  • Have limited replication of healthy cell
  • Have a healthy blood supply
  • Have Apoptosis or programmed cell death which is automatic when the cell becomes inefficient or damaged
  • Are sensitive to immune system destruction and control
  • Immune modulation is healthy with appropriate inflammation and anti-inflammation reactions
  • Do not invade nearby organs or spread to adjacent tissue or organs

Explanation of the Roots

The tree roots affect the development of all chronic diseases, including cancers. The roots directly affect the trunk of the tree, we can’t just cut off the branches to eliminate the leaves to make cancer go away. We need to dig deep into the soil where cancer and chronic disease thrive and develop a specific plan to impact these roots. We impact the roots where symptoms stem from to influence genetics, environmental toxins, poor nutrition and inflammatory diets, chronic infections, gastrointestinal dysbiosis and malabsorption, hormone imbalances, sedentary lifestyle, toxic emotions and HPA axis dysfunction.

Hyperion and How it Relates to Oncology Treatment   

We use a nutrition and supplement plan specific for each cancer type and patient history to target the Hallmarks of Cancer, to impact cancer growth or regrowth.  The supplements used overlap synergistically in well-defined cancer molecular networks to control the progression of cancer. We need to exert an effect on these molecular networks and tumor microenvironment cells. In a functional medicine/functional oncology platform, we exert multiple and synergistic effects with natural products and with patient-specific research-based functional medicine plans to impact the root cause of disease.

We use evidence-based nutraceuticals and functional medicine protocols parallel to and in contrast with standard treatment plans to augment treatments.

Who will want to contact Hyperion Functional Medicine?

Patients who are newly diagnosed with cancer, have started specialized oncology treatment or patients who want to prevent the recurrence of cancer. Hyperion’s plans augment your oncology treatment plan and help you to heal from the root.

Our goal is to optimize the patient by targeting the root cause of the disease.

Symptoms and diagnoses in addition to cancers can include chronic fatigue, toxin exposures, rashes, brain fog, joint pain, sleep disturbances, bloating and gas, diarrhea and constipation, leaky gut symptoms, food sensitivities, chronic inflammation, high cholesterol, hormone imbalances, thyroid disease and hyperinsulinemia.

We impact the proliferation of cancer and chronic disease. Healing happens at the root.
