Michael Karlfeldt, ND, PhD

Hello, everybody, this is Dr. Karlfeldt and I’m excited to do this sort of presentation in regards to a subject that I think is extremely important for everyone to know. Because a lot of us, we think about cancer. We think of  it as this one tumor and it’s just a tumor and, you know, do whatever it is that we can shrink that tumor. And we don’t recognize the complexity of what cancer truly is. And because we don’t recognize that we are not bringing in all the types of therapies that are needed in order to be able to address this complexity. So I’m going to do a little bit of a PowerPoint just to kind of highlight the complexity that exists within the tumor. Decided to learn a little bit more because I always think that there’s always power in knowing. So we’re going to be talking a little bit about the complexity of cancer. And what’s important to understand is that a tumor is not just a tumor. It’s not just a lump. Yeah, it is a complex ecosystem and it has a number of different cells, types, and subpopulations that can then influence the tumor as a whole. So it is not just the same kind of cell the whole time that you know, that they’re all the same cells. They are kind of like a city. Look at LA, for instance. You got the city as a whole, which we can pretend as the tumor. Some people think L.A. is a tumor. And then you have then different counties and then you have different neighborhoods within those counties. And then you have different houses within those neighborhoods.
