Virtual Center for Integrative Cancer Care
Holistic Wellness & Alternative Medicine
Welcome to the Virtual Center for Integrative Cancer Care, Holistic Wellness and Alternative Medicine. We would like to take you a to a journey of health and well-being. Dr. Tirgan believes that cancer care should be focused on each patient's unique and overall condition, a holistic, yet individual approach. With this as the center core of his practice, he provides advanced complementary therapies with personal attention to cancer patients. Mainframe of his work is addressing the physical, nutritional, psychosocial and spiritual aspects of healing and recovery. Dr. Tirgan's Approach to complimentary cancer care incorporates the following in the ongoing standard care of his patients.
Stress is a potent destructive factor. To achieve better health, one has to overcome stress and enjoy life. While there are many ways of combating stress, for some, travel and being away is the best solution. This is certainly true for Dr. Tirgan himself.
What is Holistic Wellness
Holistic approach to wellness is a method that considers our body, mind and spirit as whole and treats the whole being, as opposed to treating the body or each part individually. There is harmony on earth and in the world outside our planet, so there should be harmony between us and the world around us. There should be harmony between our body, mind and spirit. Any disturbance in the harmonious coexistence of the elements of life can impact the other interrelated organs.
Look at your family, or circle of friends. If one becomes ill, others will suffer in one way or other. If you stop watering a plant, it will soon die, so life of the plant is in your hands, so is your life. It is in other hands. You may not see the hands, and by hands, I mean symbolic hands. You were brought to this world, without your own consent. Your name was chosen and given to you the same way. You were sent to a school that your parents chose for you. You will do same to your children, and life goes on.
There are many hands that control our lives at different stages of our existence. As a child you were in hands of your parents, your friends and your teacher. When you feel you have autonomy, and have a job and income, etc., when you live on your own and feel independent, you find your self working for others. Being paid by other hands, being controlled by them and being responsible to them.
When you get married, your life will be in hands of your spouse, and her or his demands. When you have children, they will run your life and determine what you should do. When they become independent, you have aged and you may be dependent on them to help you. Or you may be dependent on a doctor or a medicine or your pension or Medicare, etc.
Even when you die, you will be in hands of other who would arrange for you funeral, etc. SAD??? Come to peace with your world and work with it harmoniously. The pain will be less and the rewards will be more valuable.

Hypnosis and Imagery
Hypnosis has long been used for control of pain and anxiety and can be quite effective in improving the patient's sense of well being. It can facilitate the subjective experience of pain. The techniques most commonly used focus on relaxation and imagery, that is a substitute for taking the attention away from pain. Some patients are able to imagine receiving an injection of Morphine feel the instant pain relive. Others can imagine floating in cold or warm water or immersing themselves in a hot bath.
Patients learn how to separate pain from hurt. Although they may still feel the pain, its perception by mind is of a lesser intensity. They also learn how to transform the feeling of pain with the warmth or tingling. The nice thing about hypnosis is that some can learn how to self hypnotize themselves and feel less pain and discomfort from their illness. People have varying degree of ability to self hypnotize. For some it can be fairly easy. One has to be in quiet place and in a comfortable environment, may be lying on a bed or sitting on a recliner chair. Next is to focus on an image or experience, like being in a flower garden or in a swimming pool. Best results are achieved by trying to recreate a past pleasant experience.
Hypnosis is very efficacious in pain control and it can provide even superior results to pain medicines or it can reduce the amount of consumed pain medicine. It is commonly used for weight control, smoking and alcohol problems, improved self esteem, etc.
Listening to a soft and comforting music, like a simple violin concerto can be both relaxing and therapeutic. We all have some old records or tapes that we have not listened to for a while. Now it is time to get them out to play for us again. If you played an instrument in the past, now it is time to get back on. Dr. Tirgan's choices are the music of Johann Strauss, Antonio Vivaldi and Rimsky Korsakov.
There are many ways for reaching our spirit and feel good about ourselves. May be thinking of god, universe, creation in a moment of silence can take us there. We need to separate from our routine lives, move on to a new level and have a strong belief or faith to positively influence the healing process. Reading poetry, reading a piece of literature, a play, or just closing our eyes and feeling the warmth and fragrance of a burning candle in front of us can have a positive influence in our psyche and therefore helping the healing process.
Burning a Candle
Candles are warm and mystical. The candlelight has a lifting effect on the spirit. It creates a different mood. Think about the wax and the nature transforming before your eyes. Ever made a candle yourself? Make one and it can be very satisfying. Make one of bees wax sheets, much easier.
