I think this is interesting in two ways.

First, is that they (claim to) have optimized and hotrodded ultrasound treatment way past HIFU ultrasound ablation, itself relatively new. The prospect here might be better treatment of single met sites without surgery. Or comparing HIFU to laser lung surgery, where in the US they'll tell you you're SOL at just 5-9 lung mets or too close to something important, "go home". Whereas in Germany, with Rolle's optimized laser, they've already done patients with 100 lung mets, and closer to important structures.

Second is that this treatment, depending on the debris and tissue effects, sounds very combinable and complementary to nutraceuticals, both for clean up and enhancement of our natural immune, anticancer processes.

A technology that definitely needs to be monitored, and maybe tried out.

most of 2010 Life Extension recommendations and possibilities + more, some (much) higher, peaking ~2011-12, taper chemo to almost nothing mid 2018, IV C-->2021. Now supplements
