At Quantum Clinic, we view cancer as the symptom of underlying dis-ease that has likely been present in the body for many months or years, before the condition we call ‘cancer’ appears. This underlying dis-ease may be due to some or all of the following factors:
Dr Tavakkoli offers an integrative support programme for patients diagnosed with cancer. She uses a multi-faceted approach that is primarily aimed at addressing the above underlying factors and removing chronic inflammation from the body.
This programme may be followed before, during or after any conventional treatment you may be receiving.
It is always helpful to have an initial conversation regarding your specific needs.
Dr Tavakkoli offers a 15 minute telephone consultation at no charge for this purpose. This conversation will enable Dr Tavakkoli to become familiar with your personal situation, and will allow you an opportunity to become more familiar with the programme and ask any questions you may have.
If you wish to go ahead with the programme, prior to seeing you, Dr Tavakkoli will need to review relevant letters from your specialist, together with your recent test results (blood tests, scans).
Following this, you will be seen in the initial consultation to discuss your individual circumstances in depth and to explain the details about your programme. During this appointment, Dr Tavakkoli will advise you of beneficial lifestyle changes and provide nutritional advice, focusing on anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer foods. Occult (hidden) infections that may be contributing to advancing disease are addressed, as are other possible contributing factors such as exposure to electromagnetic radiation and exposure to environmental chemicals and toxins. You will be provided with your first supply of supplements to commence immediately.
After your initial consultation, comprehensive Functional Medicine laboratory testing will take place in order to identify your specific nutritional and biochemical profile. This may involve blood, urine, stool and saliva tests. The results will enable Dr Tavakkoli to formulate an individualised plan for you, including healthy nutrition, targeted nutritional and anti-inflammatory supplements, and a detoxification plan to clear toxins both at organ and intracellular level.
Following this, therapy sessions are offered twice a week for four weeks. Dr Tavakkoli uses techniques to increase the blood flow in your microcirculation in order to optimise the delivery of nutrients and supplements to diseased cells. These techniques include Bemer Physical Vascular Therapy, Low Level Laser Therapy, and for those patients who have the required level of fitness, Exercise with Oxygen Therapy. The microcirculation is the network of small arterioles, venules and tiny capillaries that distributes blood throughout the body, and comprises over 70% of the circulatory system.
These interventions enhance the microcirculation and carry essential nutrients and supplements more effectively to diseased areas which may not otherwise have adequate access to these vital nutrients. The nutrients and potent supplements power your body’s cells to deal more efficiently with inflammation and cellular damage.
Certain nutrients are provided in liposomal form or solid lipid nanoparticle form, and timed synchronistically with the above interventions, in order to derive maximum efficacy. This delivery enables maximum intracellular absorption to be achieved using a convenient oral delivery system.
You will have another appointment to discuss the results of your Functional Medicine tests and your personalised plan, and a final appointment to review any remaining areas that require addressing, and to discuss your health plan, going forward. This final appointment usually takes place about 8 weeks after your initial consultation.
You will have eight appointments to receive the therapies, twice a week for four weeks. Altogether there are 11 appointments, including the initial consultation, appointment for laboratory results and final appointment.
Please note that the Integrative Cancer Programme is provided as a package of care. Dr Tavakkoli provides the individual therapies as part of the entire package, but does not offer individual therapies (eg Bemer/Exercise With Oxygen Therapy) alone.
The cost for the programme is £1,900. This includes all the therapies and appointments with Dr Tavakkoli. Time to discuss any queries in between appointments is included.
The programme cost does not include the cost of laboratory testing or nutritional supplements. Laboratory test costs are decided by the respective laboratories. Where possible, we obtain clinician rates for our patients. Supplements are provided at a discount.
It is advised that you allow about £1,000 for laboratory testing. Supplements will vary from patient to patient and we suggest allowing about £300 per month for supplement costs.

No claim can be made for cure or improvement. Your cancer treatment and ongoing care will remain under your specialist medical team.
