About quality of life
"Quality of life" is defined as the degree of well-being felt by an individual or group of people. Quality of life is particularly important in health care, where treatment decisions and side effects directly impact a patient’s functionality and ability to enjoy normal life activities.
The classic evaluation of the success of treatment focuses on “response,” or alterations in physical condition. While this marker is obviously of great importance, it ignores the serious impairment that treatments can have on patients’ quality of life.
Quality of life is particularly important in the areas of cancer and chronic disease, where patients often suffer from debilitating side effects as a result of standardized treatments. Unfortunately, a poor quality of life is something most of these patients are told they have to live with if they want to get well.
About the study
The FACR, in conjunction with AMARC Enterprises, is conducting a Quality of Life Study. We recommend Poly-MVA (palladium lipoic complexes) as a product that can assist those people who suffer from various forms and stages of cancer. Compelling evidence indicates that it can support the body to target and eradicate cancerous cells without damaging healthy ones. To learn more about Poly-MVA, click here.
With this QOL study, we carefully evaluate the total effect that Poly-MVA and/or other treatments have on a person. It is not enough to simply know how a medical treatment preserves life or controls disease. The correct benchmarks for success must examine the whole patient- including physical, psychological, and emotional state. Ultimately, the measurement of the success of any treatment must take into account the very personal perception of patients regarding their overall wellbeing and happiness.
While quality of life is generally considered an intangible phenomenon, we have developed condition-specific monitoring techniques to address certain aspects of wellbeing that are considered universally important. This research study aims to gather information on parameters such as energy, mood, efficacy and others. These will be tracked on a monthly basis in relation to the use of Poly-MVA.
Should you wish to participate in this Quality of Life Study, a number of benefits will be available to you. Most importantly, you will have the opportunity to experience the benefits thousands of people enjoy every day as a result of Poly-MVA.
