Types of Cancer:
According to the American Cancer Society, in the year 2011 approximately 1.5 million new cancer cases were diagnosed. Unfortunately, many of these were fatal, causing cancer to be the second leading cause of death in the United States. Furthermore, traditional management techniques, many times, are incredibly expensive. According to The National Institutes of Health, Americans paid an estimated average of $263.8 billion for cancer care and its effects in 2010.
At the Houston Wellness Clinic, we are committed to managing cancer with a number of advanced techniques that are effective, less expensive than traditional medicine, and cause minimal side-effects. These incredible therapies include Poly MVA, Metabolic Therapy, and many intravenous therapies that allow very potent amounts of natural supplements, such as vitamin C, to be safely put into one's body. Additionally, based on the personalized therapy plan, the doctor provides dietary guidelines, powerful supplements, and thorough testing to target the root of the problem. These methods not only fight cancerous cells, but also build the body's immune system instead of suppressing it.
We specialize in alternative therapies to help manage the most common types of cancer, including:
If you are suffering from a type of cancer not on the list, the doctor can still meet with you and put together a therapy plan.Back to Top
Cancer Conditions & Therapy Options
According to the Mayo Clinic, breast cancer is the second most common cancer found in women, following skin cancer. There are many types of breast cancer, including invasive, non-invasive, recurrent, and metastatic breast cancers as well as those found in men. The most recent estimates put out by the American Cancer Society for new cases of both invasive and non-invasive in 2011 were 288,130 and deaths from breast cancer were estimated at 39,520 in women. The most significant risk factors are age (mutations form through aging and toxic exposures) and gender (simply being a woman).
Therapy for breast cancer varies depending on what stage and what form the woman has. Typical ways to traditionally manage breast cancer are surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy. The Houston Wellness Clinic fights breast cancer depending on each individual case. Many of the therapy plans include a combination of; intravenous Vitamin C Therapy, Poly MVA Therapy, Metabolic Therapy including powerful supplements, and a cancer-defeating diet and lifestyle program.

Both colon and rectal cancer start in the digestive system and usually develop over time, beginning as non-cancerous polyps. Colon screening is strongly recommended to find these polyps and stop the cancer before it starts. Estimates from the American Cancer Society say that in 2011, 1 out of 20 people have the risk of developing colorectal cancer in their lifetime. In the U.S. this year, an estimated 101,340 new cases of colon cancer will develop and approximately 39,870 new cases of rectal cancer will develop resulting in about 49,380 deaths from colorectal cancer.
Commonly used therapies for colon/rectal cancer include radiation, chemotherapy, surgery, and targeted therapies. The Houston Wellness Clinic can provide either alternative therapy or complementary therapy depending on the situation to best fight the type of cancer. The therapies performed by Dr. Allibone M.D. at his clinic are less expensive, less painful, and very successful in fighting colon/rectal cancer. The doctor creates a personalized therapy plan that uses potent doses of specific nutrients given intravenously such as vitamin C, along with other forms of therapies such as Poly MVA, Metabolic, and Hydrogen Peroxide. Additionally, he provides powerful supplements and a specific cancer fighting diet and lifestyle plan so that the body's immune system is actually strengthened while fighting the cancerous cells.Back to Top
Prostate cancer is unique in that it only affects men. The prostate is a gland that is found just below the bladder and only in males. Male hormones cause the prostate to grow as a man ages until adulthood is reached. Issues can occur when either it does not reach the full size or if it continues to grow past full size. Almost all cases of prostate cancer start in the glands and grow very slowly, many times unidentified. Shockingly, according to the American Cancer Society, studies have shown that 7-9 out of 10 men have prostate cancer by the age of 80.

There are two main types of lung cancer: Small Cell Lung Cancer, and Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer. The majority of all lung cancers are the non-small cell which includes three separate categories; Squamous cell carcinoma, Adenocarcinoma, and Large-cell (undifferentiated) carcinoma. According to the American Cancer Society, an estimated 221,130 new cases of lung cancer were diagnosed in 2011 and approximately 156,940 deaths with occur because of it. Lung cancer as a whole is the #1 cause of cancer deaths in the U.S. The leading risk factor, causing 9 out of 10 cases of lung cancer, is tobacco smoke.
Therapy for lung cancer depends widely on what kind, how far along it is, if the cancer has spread, etc. Normal options for therapy include; radiation, surgery, and chemotherapy. At the Houston Wellness Clinic the doctor will thoroughly examine the patient to get an accurate analysis of the situation.

There are many types of liver cancers, all developing in the actual liver. The two primary types of tumors found in the liver are: benign (non-cancerous) and malignant (cancerous). If benign tumors start to cause problems, mainly because of their size, they may be surgically removed. There are many different kinds of malignant tumors including; Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), Hepatoblastoma (very rare), Bile duct cancer (cholangiocarcinoma), and cancers that begin in blood vessels in the liver (angiosarcomas and hemangiosarcomas). Additionally, many times when cancer is found in the liver it is actually from a different part of the body and it spread to the liver (called metastatic cancer). This would technically be called the cancer from which body part it started from ie. metastatic lung cancer even if it's in the liver. According to the American Cancer Society, liver cancer is more common in men than women with a risk of 1 out of 94 compared to 1 of out 212 for women.
Therapy for liver cancer varies depending on what type is diagnosed but it includes; surgery, chemotherapy, radiation, embolization, and targeted therapy.

Ovarian cancer forms in a woman's ovaries. There are three types of cancerous tumors; Epithelial, Germ Cell, and Stromal. The American Cancer Society estimates that in the United States for the year 2011 approximately 21,900 new cases of ovarian cancer were diagnosed and about 15,460 women will die from ovarian cancer.
Therapy will vary depending on what type of cancer is diagnosed as well as factors that involve the patient such as general health, age, etc. The most common therapies for ovarian cancer are; surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy.

Brain cancer is unique in that both benign (non-cancerous) and malignant (cancerous) tumors are very dangerous in this part of the body. When tumors grow, they can constrict normal brain tissues that are the central control for the body and therefore, can be devastating if not removed. There are many different types of brain cancer that's classified as "primary" meaning it originated somewhere in the central nervous system (brain and spinal) including; Gliomas, Astrocytomas, Oligodendrogliomas, Ependymomas, Meningiomas, Medulloblastomas, Gangliogliomas, Schwannomas (neurilemmomas), Craniopharyngiomas, Chordomas, and Non-Hodgkin lymphomas. The other brain cancer classification is metastatic or secondary brain tumor meaning it's a different cancer that has spread to the brain (ie metastatic breast cancer).
Therapy can be very complicated due to the many types of cancers and the sensitive regions in the brain. A complex brain tumor may take a team of doctors to address. Traditional therapies include; surgery, radiation, chemotherapy, and medication. The Houston Wellness Clinic can provide powerful supplemental or alternative therapy options to help fight this cancer. To do this the doctor prescribes a specific plan for each patient containing a variety of aggressive therapies such as Poly MVA, intravenous vitamin C Therapy, and Metabolic Therapy, depending on the situation. He also provides a cancer fighting diet and lifestyle program, along with powerful supplements that will aid in both the success of the therapies and overall health.Back to Top
Skin cancer is the number one cancer detected in the U.S. This type of cancer is split up into two major categories, Basal cell (majority) and Squamous cell cancer. The number of people that have skin cancer cannot be reported 100% accurately because it is not required to be accounted for at cancer registries however, the American Cancer Society has estimated it at 2.2 million cases each year. Skin cancer is rarely fatal, estimated to be around 2,000 per year. There are many risk factors that may cause or increase one's risk of having skin cancer however, the largest risk factor is long exposure to UV rays.
Skin cancer is usually addressed surgically but other methods include; radiation, systemic chemotherapy, cryosurgery, and laser surgery among others. The Houston Wellness Clinic attacks skin cancer using a variety of therapies based on each individual patient's therapy plan but may include; Poly MVA, intravenous therapies such as vitamin C, and Metabolic Therapy. Additionally the doctor provides a cancer fighting diet and wellness program, along with powerful supplements.Back to Top
"I was diagnosed 2 years ago with highly malignant tumor of the brain... 95% of my tumor was removed surgically. I then ambarked on a course of anti-cancer therapy advocated by Dr. Allibone. At present it appears there is no return, or increase in size of the residual tumor..." - William M. (Brain Cancer)
