Dr Carlos Garcia

Utopia Wellness is a leading-edge medical center that offers integrative, holistic, patient-focused medical treatments. Under the direction of Carlos M. Garcia, M.D., programs designed for anyone who wants to enjoy optimal health are offered: Whether suffering from a chronic illness or simply wanting to prevent disease. Our extensive menu of wellness programs complement each other by addressing all issues related to well-being.

Dr. Carlos M. Garcia M.D. received his formal medical training at the University of Massachusetts, Medical School followed by an internship in Internal Medicine and residency in Anesthesia, both at Hahnemann University in Philadelphia, PA.

After moving to the Tampa Bay area in 1984, he began his practice as an Anesthesiologist at Bayfront Medical Center, Edward White Hospital, and Physicians’ Community Hospital.

Over his years working in hospitals, he came to realize that traditional medicine was driven more by the profits of pharmaceutical companies and hospitals than it was on providing the patient with the best possible care. So in 1996, Dr. Garcia redirected his medical focus to natural alternative health care including holistic medicine, integrative cancer treatments, Chelation therapy, bio-identical hormone replacement, IV vitamins and antioxidants, and weight loss. In all of these areas, he uses non-harmful and natural alternatives to conventional treatments. His passion to help others achieve optimal health through natural medicine led him to found Utopia Wellness, where he incorporates the best that medicine has to offer, traditional and alternative.

Dr. Garcia’s focus over the past several years has been on helping people suffering from cancer and its related diseases. His approach is holistic in that he addresses not only the tumor or cancer but also on the whole person and the cause of the cancer. To be truly cancer free for life, you must identify and eliminate the underlying cause of the disease.  In 2012, Dr. Garcia published his book Cancer is a Symptom: The Real Cause Revealed where he addresses the prospect that cancer is merely a symptom and unless you heal the underlying cause, you will never be truly cancer free.He also co authored Cancer Free with Bill Henderson.

Dr. Garcia is a member of ACAM (American College for the Advancement of Medicine), ICIM (International College of Integrative Medicine), and the American Holistic Health Association.  Additionally, Dr. Garcia holds certifications in Chelation Therapy from the American Board of Chelation Therapy, and has given numerous lectures on various health topics to professionals, medical students and the public, has had a radio talk show, and has been interviewed for several health related television news topics.

Does Oxygen Levels Influence Cancer Growth?

Wednesday, May 9th, 2012

Research presented in the online edition of the Journal of Molecular Cell Biology concluded that low levels of oxygen in cells may be a primary cause of uncontrollable growth in some cancer cells. Analyzing samples of messenger RNA data, or transcriptiomic data, from seven different cancer types researchers  found that long term lack of oxygen in cells may be a key driver of cancer growth. Although previous studies have linked low oxygen levels in cells as a contributor to cancer growth, this is the first to see it as a driving force as opposed to the prevailing theory of  genetic mutations being the major cause.  The researcher said the high incidence of cancer worldwide cannot be explained by chance genetic mutations alone. In addition, he said “Cancer drugs try to get to the root–at the molecular level—of a particular mutation, but the cancer often by-passes it.”   “So we think that possibly genetic mutations may not be the main driver of cancer.”

Researchers analyzed data from the Stanford Microarray Database to detect abnormal gene expression patterns in seven cancer sited: breast, kidney, liver, lung, ovary, pancreas, and stomach. Researchers relied upon the gene HIF1A as a biomarker of the amount of molecular oxygen in a cell and all seven cancers showed increasing amounts of HIF1A that indicated decreased oxygen levels in the cancer cells.

Low oxygen levels in a cell interrupts oxidative phosphorylation- the normal high efficient way cells convert food to energy. With a decrease in oxygen, the cells switch to glycolysis to produce energy unit, called ATP. Glycolysis is much less efficient  and cancer cells must work harder to obtain even more food or glycogen to survive. The research said “When a cancer cell gets more food, it grows: this makes the tumor  biomass bigger and even more hypoxic. In turn, the energy-v=conversion efficiency goes further down, making the cell even more hungry and triggering the cells to get more food from blood circulating, creating a vicious cycle. This could be a key driver of cancer.”  Further experimental research is needed.
