Sono Photo Dynamic Therapy (SPDT) is a safe, non-toxic and non invasive means of both destroying cancer cells as well as of enhancing immune protective function. This treatment uses light of a particular wavelength and sound of a specific frequency to activate a predigested light and sound sensitive substance which attaches selectively to tumour cells, causing their break down.
Both Sono Dynamic Therapt (SDT) and Photo Dynamic Therapy (PDT) have been used for years as separate procedures and there are some 3000 published articles relating to their potential use in therapy. PDT is a licenced treatment in 19 countries and available through the National Health Service in the United Kingdom. Both PDT and SDT have been used in the treatment of cancer with variable success. PDT on its own is used for more superficial cancers such as prostate, breast and skin cancers, but when combined with SDT it has been shown to be effective for deep seated tumours such as bowel and ovarian cancers as well as metastatic cancers especially when spread to bone, lung and liver tissues. The vast majority of advanced cancer patients treated with SPDT live longer than predicted and in 75% of cases there is significant tumour cell destruction.
SPDT is available as a an effective treatment for cancer in England, Mexico, Israel, China and now in Cape Town.
At the start of the treatment, patients absorb under the tongue a chlorophyll based light sensitive compound which binds selectively to tumour cells. It stays absorbed in cancer cells but is quickly released by healthy cells. The activate is absorbed into the body 48-72 hours before treatment and intravenous ozone is administered just before the treatment to enhance its effects; ozone which is a super oxygen compound, inhibits cancer cell growth as cancer cells are more active in low oxygen thresholds. The patient is then placed in a specialized light bed and exposed to thousands of light emitting diodes (LED ) which emit red and infra red light waves, followed by ultrasound treatment at a specific frequency to tumour-localized areas of the body. The light –sound sensitive compound is activated by the light and sound leading to a series of cellular events which result in tumour cell destruction.
Because the whole body is exposed to the lights, all cancer or pre-cancerous cells within range are affected, allowing the destruction and inhibition of cancer anywhere in the body. This treatment is entirely safe and the only side effects relate to the destruction of the tumour cells that produce an inflammatory response aimed at clearing the dead tumour tissue.
