What is a RGCC cancer sensitivity test?
A lab in Greece under the direction of Dr. Ioannis Papasotiriou, M.D., Ph.D., medical director of RGCC, has been leading the way in the analysis of cancer cells.
The information that is obtained from this test allows us here at Health and Wellness of Carmel the ability to create an individualized, patient-centered holistic approach to your cancer treatment.
This test is being run by some of the largest cancer hospitals in the world. We are very pleased to be able to offer this Chemosensitivity Testing to our patients! We are pleased to offer not only Chemosensitivity testing, but our Onconomics Extracts, which measures the tumor cell’s sensitivity to natural substances and plant extracts. With this test, we are able to provide our patients a treatment plan consisting of natural substances that will be very effective.
In our clinic, most patients know they have cancer when they come to see us, so we expect the results to show circulating tumor cells and stem cells. The gene expression part of the test allows us to look at how the malignant cells want to grow, multiply, develop new blood vessels, grow in other places (metastasis), what feeds it and what inhibits it. This information allows us to get specific insight into which therapy may work best for you. It allows us as Functional Medicine practitioners to know what may be the best natural approach to cancer therapy.
That is to say that, R.G.C.C. tests are designed to assess which type of treatment will be most effective for you and your cancer.
However, the test is also for patients who have overcome cancer and want to make sure cancer has been eliminated from the bloodstream, even though they may be clear to all scans run by their doctor. The lab has developed a patented membrane that is able to capture malignant cells from your own blood. In fact, it is capable of capturing one malignant cell out of trillions of normal blood cells.
So as a result, it is also for those people who have a family history and want to be tested preventively, even before a tumor can be detected or develop or seen on any scan. Most tumors, equal to or larger than 2 millimeters, will produce circulating tumor cells. If a screening test is positive for circulating tumor cells, we can then proceed with further testing to identify the origin of the tumor cells with 95% accuracy.
We believe that R.G.C.C. has and will continue to positively change cancer care. With this test, we able to provide the patient a profile of natural substances that will be most effective in cancer treatment.

"The Med Spa services are top notch! I had IPL and saw results after one treatment. Brianna and Sarah listened to my skin concerns and helped me determine what treatment would be best. I have always felt overwhelmed with all of the treatment options out there and this helped me determine what might work best for my skin. I definitely recommend the med spa services!"- L.F. / Wellness / May 04, 2021

"I have never been so impressed with the knowledge, efficiency, and positive attitude of every team member I encountered at Health and Wellness of Carmel. I traveled from Wisconsin for a consult with Dr Fetters about my asthma as I was seeking something other than another prescription that didn't work. I received a thorough evaluation in one day of my health, food sensitivity testing, bloodwork, colon cancer testing, pulmonary function testing, a weight management plan, dietician guidance, an IV to destroy bacteria and even a visit to their new Medical Spa, OWN WELLNESS SPA. There, I received a free consult on new technologies to improve find lines and wrinkles, sun damage, facial veins and more! A great, hopeful, ray of sunshine at the end of a long road of many traditional medicine specialists giving me 10 minutes and never fixing the problem. An expensive day but worth every penny!"- C.G. / Google / Apr 29, 2021
