Better cancer screening and advances in various treatments have increased the survival rate of the majority of cancer patients to over five years. The purpose of this case study is to demonstrate that with a restructured and balanced Yin/Yang management system, the survival rate of a male patient with bone metastatic prostate cancer can potentially exceed 15 years. The fundamental shift in cancer management begins from ground zero at the initial diagnosis to create a balanced integration of western and eastern healing modalities

This 15-year case study uses Nobel laureate Dr. Daniel Kahneman’s “System 1 and System 2” decision making process. (Thinking, Fast and Slow, Doubleday, Canada, 2011). These 2 systems of thinking can be useful in adjusting physician’s orders to “best fit” patients’ needs. The goal is to select the most effective cancer management for the patient in an optimal supportive environment. The focus becomes the patient as a client participant. The method for treating cancer successfully requires proactive rules of behavior at home, at clinics and in hospitals. The functional framework for treating cancer successfully requires adopting roles of behavior for the patient as a proactive client, the physician as an effective communicator and administrator of treatments, and for the family, friends and other patients as a socio-emotive support group.

The effectiveness of a Yin/Yang system recommends the participation of all practitioners in client advocacy workshop run by holistically trained persons such as a cancer nurse, or a case management technician. A complex array of Yin and Yang treatments can include CBD (Cannabidiol), DCT (Dendritic Cell Therapy), hormones, hyperthermia, meditation, IV infusions, nutrition, surgery, proton radiation, photon radiation (X-Ray), green tea (Gyokuro, Matcha, Sencha), Ginger, Turmeric, CQ10, and many other ingredients that are considered in a balanced use of Allopathic and Complementary treatments. All treatment data must be stored and organized as a computer application that is “designed” for the patient/client. The Yin/Yang system can also assure that the patient’s financial considerations do not add additional stress while receiving treatments both locally and internationally. Advocacy must be balanced using a harmonious and symbiotic mix of western and eastern medicine, using traditional and complementary treatment integration.

A psychological perspective enhanced the application of the Yin/Yang system for treating cancer and was based on a 15-year case study. The criterion validity of this case study was established by examining the relationship between various traditional-complementary treatment modalities and their outcome as measured by blood tests, PSA levels, Testosterone levels, immunoglobulin changes and other bio-markers such as repeated MRI images and limited use of CT scanning and X-rays. Reliability has been established by repeated measurements. The results of this case study show that the patient as a participating client has improved self-confidence, assertiveness and spirituality that resulted in an improved cancer prognosis. The Yin/Yang treatment model worked to effectively arrest cancer growth. The allopathic physicians accepted the changes in the treatment protocol initiated by the proactive advocacy of the patient.
